Essential Lyrics:

Yeah the boys 'round here
Drinking that ice cold beer
Talkin' 'bout girls, talkin' 'bout trucks

Backwoods legit, don't take no shit
Chew tobacco, chew tobacco, chew tobacco, spit

Essential Lyrics:

Well I love her
And I love to fish
I spend all day out on this lake
And hell is all I catch

If I hit that fishin' hole today
She'd be packin' all her things
And she'd be gone by noon

The secret of life is keep your eye on the ball
The secret of life is a beautiful woman
And Marilyn stares down from the barroom wall

Essential Lyrics:

And it's sunshine, blue eyes, tan lines, slow tide
Rollin' white sand, cold can koozie in my hand, just a summertime strolling
Chillin', breazin', sippin', singin' whoaoaoh

      I have a country song, a rock song, a folk song, mostly in multiple quantities. The country song would be Jimmy Webb's Too Young To Die, at least today anyway. Or, maybe it's Gentle on My Mind. Too many choices.

      Believe it or not, Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats" puts me in a great mood. Not sure what that says about me, but I do love that song!
