"Letters From Home" by John Michael Montgomery. I'm not big into country but I love that song.

"Corpus Christie Bay"

Robert Earl Keen.

I have a tough time getting through that song without crying like a baby it hits so close.

Mrs Goon usually gets me another beer at that point

Mud on the Tires by Brad Paisley for modern country.
Crazy by Patsy Cline for older country.

Most new country is bullshit pop. I prefer the prior generation.

"Chattahoochee" is another good one, if I even spelled that right.

And of course, anything from fellow San Antonian (or Poteet-an??) George Strait.

I don't generally listen to country as a rule but, 24 yrs ago when I was at the Armor School at FT Knox there was this song they played at just about every meal in the messhall that I "Think" was by Micky Gilley(?). It was something to the effect that "...there's only one MonaLisa, one leaning tower of pisa, one Paris and there's only one you....",..Darn thing had a great melody but I can't find it anywhere.

Anybody know what it's called or who the artist was?

Cledus T Judd - My Cellmate Thinks I'm Sexy


Hi ho Silver, AWAY!
After my show, thought I'd have a little fun.
Hopped on a horse: Shorty sure could run.
Well, I got a butt kickin, when the police finally caught me.
("Give me back my horse!!!")
Not a moment too soon, Tim McGraw jumped in.
Did his best Jackie Chan, caught a cop on the chin.
Now I don't understand why they's arrestin' me,

My cellmate thinks I'm sexy, I really turn him on.
He's always staring at me, oh, when the guards are gone.
I'm runnin out of cigarettes; he's askin me to dance.
He says I'm lookin good in these orange pants.
I really wish Tim McGraw was here to protect me.
My cellmate thinks I'm sexy.

I'd give anything to be back on my bus.
I'm hidin' in my bunk, but he's climbin' on up.
Swears all he wants me to do is sing him one of my songs.
Says he's got a dream: I'm afraid of what it is.
You're never gonna see me on a horse after this.
I only get one call. I hope that Faith is home.

My cellmate thinks I'm sexy, he just won't leave me alone.
He's blowin' kisses at me, and I'm a'duckin' em all.
I hate to break it to him, I'm in no mood for romance.
What part of no don't this fool understand?
I'm in big trouble if someone don't come and get me.
My cellmate thinks I'm sexy.

Well one day behind bars is long enough,
'Cos when I drop that show gold, man his eyes light up.

My cellmate thinks I,
My cellmate thinks I'm sexy, I really turn him on.
My name is Kenny Chesney, this ain't where I belong.
Me and Tim's in trouble, buddy, one thing is for sure,.
George Strait's gonna kick us off his George Strait tour.
I'd call Tracy Lawrence but he's in the next cell beside me.
My cellmate thinks I'm sexy.
My cellmate thinks I'm sexy.

I had him from hello...hello...hello.
What's Up!!


Goodbye Squirrel
Me and Harold Muffert were outdoors men
Set in our backwoods ways
Both members of the huntin' club
Both active in the NRA
(National Redneck Association)

We scouted a location where we had no doubt
We'd kill the biggest buck in the world
(About a 34-pointer)
Harold waited in his tree stand
But all he seen was a squirrel

Dang near two weeks since the season started
And neither one of us was amused
(HA HA HA)
We had on real tree camo, high-powered ammo
But no big game to shoot

Then we finally saw a deer as big as a horse
Harold had him in his crosshairs
(Shoot him!)
But that squirrel jumped off of a branch above us
And landed in Harold's hair
(Dang, get it out! Dang!)

Harold fell off the stand, on his head he landed
Like a wimp he laid there cryin
Till I climbed on down,
Picked him up off the ground
And it didn't take us long to decide,
That squirrel had to die

Goodbye squirrel
With black-eyed peas,
You're gonna taste good to me
Squirrel
It's you or me,
Come on out of that tree
Squirrel
Hey guess what,
You've eaten your last nut
Squirrel

Me and Harold went down to the surplus store
Bought a keg of dynamite
Two baseball bats and a case of M-80s
We were in for one heck of a fight
(We'll show you!)

When you're huntin' with dumb and dumber
Something's surely bound to go wrong
(Now be careful)
And when Harold lit that real short fuse
I knew it wouldn't be long

When the dynamite blew,
Harold's foot did too
And fingers began to fly
(Fly)
We were barely alive
When the game warden arrived
And much to our surprise,
That squirrel didn't die
(Gosh!)

Goodbye squirrel
Just one more shot,
You'll be in my crock pot
Squirrel
You'll make a lunch,
You overgrown chipmunk
Squirrel
I'll skin ya hide,
And make a hat when it's dry
Squirrel

(Deadgum Earl, Ronnie Milsap could shoot better than you
Gimme that, I said gimme that gun
Look out!
Look out, duck!
I think I killed somethin')

The Dance
By Garth Brooks
"Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I the king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance "

and
Face to Face by Alabama
"Run your fingers through my hair and softly kiss my lips
hold me close in your embrace and love me face to face

face to face heart to heart body to body
tingling tangle feelings lovers face to face

I'll caress your body and hold you close to me
I'll slide my hands around your waist and love you face to face

face to face heart to heart body to body
lips on lips arm and arm body to body
tingling tangle feelings lovers face to face

Softly say you love me as you make love to me
no one else can take your place we happen face to face "

but, nobody has mentioned

You Never Even Called Me By My Name

Written By Steve Goodman
As Recorded By David Allan Coe

WELL, IT WAS ALL
THAT I COULD DO TO KEEP FROM CRYING'
SOMETIMES IT SEEMED SO USELESS TO REMAIN
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN', DARLIN'
YOU NEVER EVEN CALL ME BY MY NAME

YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME WAYLON JENNINGS
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME CHARLIE PRIDE
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME MERLE HAGGARD/ANYMORE
EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE ON MY FIGHTING' SIDE

CHORUS:
AND I'LL HANG AROUND AS LONG AS YOU WILL LET ME
AND I NEVER MINDED STANDING' IN THE RAIN
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN', DARLIN'
YOU NEVER EVEN CALLED ME BY MY NAME

WELL, I'VE HEARD MY NAME
A FEW TIMES IN YOUR PHONE BOOK (Hello, Hello)
AND I'VE SEEN IT ON SIGNS WHERE I'VE PLAYED
BUT THE ONLY TIME I KNOW
I'LL HEAR "DAVID ALLAN COE"
IS WHEN JESUS HAS HIS FINAL JUDGMENT DAY

REPEAT CHORUS

RECITATION:
WELL, A FRIEND OF MINE NAMED STEVE GOODMAN WROTE THAT SONG
AND HE TOLD ME IT WAS THE PERFECT COUNTRY & WESTERN SONG
I WROTE HIM BACK A LETTER AND I TOLD HIM IT WAS NOT THE PERFECT COUNTRY & WESTERN SONG BECAUSE HE HADN'T SAID ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT MAMA,
OR TRAINS,
OR TRUCKS,
OR PRISON,
OR GETTING' DRUNK
WELL HE SAT DOWN AND WROTE ANOTHER VERSE TO THE SONG
AND HE SENT IT TO ME,
AND AFTER READING IT,
I REALIZED THAT MY FRIEND HAD WRITTEN THE PERFECT
COUNTRY & WESTERN SONG
AND I FELT OBLIGED TO INCLUDE IT ON THIS ALBUM
THE LAST VERSE GOES LIKE THIS HERE:

WELL, I WAS DRUNK THE DAY MY MOM GOT OUT OF PRISON
AND I WENT TO PICK HER UP IN THE RAIN
BUT BEFORE I COULD GET TO THE STATION IN MY PICKUP TRUCK
SHE GOT RUN NED OVER BY A DAMNED OLD TRAIN

CHORUS:
AND I'LL HANG AROUND AS LONG AS YOU WILL LET ME
AND I NEVER MINDED STANDING' IN THE RAIN
NO, A' YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN', DARLIN'
YOU NEVER EVEN CALL ME
WELL I WONDER WHY YOU DON'T CALL ME
WHY DON'T YOU EVER CALL ME BY MY NAME

And don't forget...........

You don't have to call me mister.........mister

A Simple Man by Charlie Daniels


I ain't nothing but a simple man
Call me a redneck, I reckon that I am
But there's things goin' on that make me mad down to the core
I have to work like a dog to make ends meet
There's crooked politicians and crime in the street
And I'm madder than hell and I ain't gonna take it no more
We tell our kids to just say no
And then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go
And he slaps him on the wrist and he turns him back out on the town
Well, if I had my way with people sellin' dope
I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope
And hang 'em up high and let 'em swing till the sun goes down

Chorus:
Well you know what's wrong with the world today
People done gone and put their Bibles away
There livin' by law of the jungle not the law of the land
Well the good book says it, so I know it's the truth
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
You'd better watch where you go
And remember where you've been
That's the way I see it I'm a simple man

Now, I'm the kind of man that wouldn't harm a mouse
But if I catch somebody breakin' in my house
I've got a twelve gauge shotgun waitin' on the other side
So don't go pushin' me against my will
I don't want to have to fight you but I durn sure will
So if you don't want trouble that you'd better just pass me on by
As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse
For the raping and the killing and the child abuse
And I've got a way to put and end to all that mess
You just take those rascals out in the swamp
Put them on their knees and tie 'em to a stump
And let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest

Chorus
