Oh, All you you young feooers. Back when I was in high school, there was Born to Losee, and Piistol Packing Momma. Oh yes and a World War II song, Drinking Rum a Coco-Cola. Might tell you the history of that one some time.

was lucky enough to attend a George Strait concert last week, he sang for two hours, only took out enough time to introduce his band. not many if any better than George. he sang a song I had never heard before, about if you are looking for him he will be rocking on his porch in Texas, I hope not a retirement song.

Over our way we have a classic country station that plays nothing but. It must be doing good because it's still going strong with all the songs mentioned here. Funny how a guy never gets tired of them. I couldn't even tell anyone what's new in country, never listen no more.

Just give me Merle Haggard! If he were the only singer around it would be just fine with me.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Absolutely!!! when i was little(er) :wink: i loved "rainbow stew" and "okie from muskogee"....the man can still carry a tune in a bucket (without the lid)....another favorite whose voice still makes me weak in the knees is the late, GREAT Conway Twitty!!! Has anyone but myself heard the new "kid" on the circuit who sounds astoundingly like conway?? his name is jeff bates and the sound of his voice will give you goosebumps and make you believe in reincarnation!!!

As far as old songs go, some of my favorites are by Marty Robbins and George Jones.It's good to see George Jones still alive and kickin'!!!
My Dad used to have a ton of "Country Song Roundup" magazines from the '50's and '60's. Maybe some of you remember them?? They had the lyrics to the popular songs of the day printed in each issue. I think he must have tossed them because I don't remember seeing them when I helped him move after he retired. Too bad, as I would consider them priceless now!!! :cry: :cry:
