Default So Country I Could Die


Song http://jimcolyer.com/sitebuilder/fla....xml%3Ft%3D640
Annie B (Bushmeyer) fansite http://www.anniebelle910.com/#

I put Annie's vocal on yesterday at ascap. She moved the lyrics around, so it's taking me a while to get used to this. I'm even pitching the song under a slightly different title. I want Annie to perform my songs with her band and also for youtube, so that means I have to meet her halfway. This is our second song. One more, and I'll submit them to ascap's Creative Services. It used to be that I could get an appointment with a writer rep right away. Now, the staff screens songs before giving appointments. Nothing is easy. I may be crazy for trying to do this at 68, but music has me by the balls. I sang karaoke last night until I was so exhausted I barely remember driving home. I'm waiting for a new CD from Little Big Town while trying to find Annie a record deal and myself a publishing deal.


SO COUNTRY I COULD DIE

I know every song Reba ever sang
I can't resist that good old country twang
I wave my flag every 4th of July
I feel So Country I could Die

Done every line dance, square dance, and two-step do-si-do
When I step out, I dress in western clothes
An American girl looking up to the sky
I feel So Country I Could Die

Well, I'm looking for a man who's looking for a girl
Who knows just how she feels
I'm looking for a man who's looking for a girl
Who's looking for something real

I grew up on a farm
I learned how to live in the south
Come on, city boy, I'll show you how
When I love a man, I never say goodbye
I feel So Country I Could Die
Oh yeah

solo

I'm looking for a man who's looking for a girl
Who knows just how she feels
I'm looking for a man who's looking for a girl
Who's looking for something real

I grew up on a farm
I learned how to live in the south
Come on, city boy, I'll show you how
When I love a man, I never say goodbye
I feel So Country I Could Die
I said I feel So Country I Could Die

solid, straightforward country.

"When I love a man, I never say goodbye" ...

yes, no-nonsense true expression ... and a tad unnerving.

Thanks, Rockman. I'm doing an album with Annie and trying to get her a deal.
