    Not a title, but one of my fav-o-right country lyrics of all time is from Hank's "Dear John" (with the band doing the bracketed line gangland style):

    That's all she wrote
    (Dear John)
    They sent your saddle home


    Along with "Drop Kick", don't forget Kinky's other classic:

    They Don't Make Jews Like Jesus Anymore

    Lyrics? Here's a couple from fellow Maui boy Kris Kristofferson; variations on a theme.

    I woke up next morning feelin' like my head was gone
    And like my thick old tongue was lickin' somethin' sick and wrong


    That's pretty good; I like this one even better;

    Well I woke up Sunday mornin' with no way to hold my head that didn't hurt
    And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad, so I had one more for dessert


    Something tells me Kris ain't making this s**t up.

    Some of my favorites:

    "You got knocked up, and I got locked up..you could say we both got screwed"

    "If bruises show your love, then your love sure shows up on me"

    "I'm my own Grandpa"

    ...and finally, one I'm in the process of writing:

    "I Can't Yodel If It's Modal" (wonder if the bluegrassers will get it?) :)

    I think you are right. I absolutely admire his lyrics. The complete song that you quoted is an all-time fav. For those less "refined" here the whole thing:

    Well I woke up Sunday morning
    with no way to hold my head, that didn't hurt
    and the beer I had for breakfast
    wasn't bad so I had one more for dessert

    Then I fumble through my closet for
    my clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt
    and I shaved my face and combed my hair
    and stumbled down the stairs to meet the day

    I'd smoked my brain the night before
    and cigarettes and songs that I've been pickin'
    but I lit my first and watched a small kid
    cussin' at a can that he was kicking

    Then I crossed the empty street and caught
    the Sunday smell of someone fryin' chicken
    and it took me back to somethin' that
    I'd lost somehow somewhere along away

    On a Sunday mornin' sidewalks
    wishing Lord that I was stoned
    'cause there is something in a Sunday
    that makes a body feel alone

    And there's nothin' short of dyin'
    half as lonesome as the sound
    on the sleepin' city side walks
    Sunday mornin' comin' down

    In the park I saw a daddy with
    a laughing little girl who he was swingin'
    and I stopped beside a Sunday school
    and listened to the song that they were singin'

    Then I headed back for home and
    somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin'
    and it echoed though the canyon like
    the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

    I see him every now and then, he lives in Hana, further up the windward coast from my place. I look at that face and think, catcher's mitt. :smug: Great songwriter.

    a little closer,
    to the phone

    or:

    I'll never get outta' this world alive

    Oh yeah, Jim Reeves! I forgot about that one.
    I like that old school country music.
