    Girl, you taught me how to hurt real bad
    And cry myself to sleep
    And showed me how this town can shatter dreams
    Another lesson 'bout a naive fool
    Who came to Babylon
    And found out that the pie
    Don't taste so sweet

    Now it's guitars, cadillacs, hillbilly music
    Lonely, lonely streets that I call home
    Yea, my guitars, cadillacs, hillbilly music
    It's the only thing that keep me hangin' on

    Ain't no glamour in this tinsle land
    Of lost and wasted lives
    Painful scars are all that's left of me
    I wanna thank-you girl for teachin' me
    Brand new ways to be cruel
    Like findin' mine now I guess I'll just leave

    And it's guitars, cadillacs, hillbilly music
    Lonely, lonely streets that I call home
    Yea, my guitars, cadillacs, hillbilly music
    It's the only thing that keep me hangin' on

    Oh it's guitars, cadillacs, hillbilly music
    Lonely, lonely streets that I call home
    Yea, my guitars, cadillacs, hillbilly music
    It's The only thing that keep me hangin' on

    It's the only thing that keep me hangin' on

    It's the only thing that keep me hangin' on

    "Fast As You"

    Maybe someday I'll be strong
    Maybe it won't be long
    I'll be the one who's tough, yeah
    You'll be the one who's got it rough

    It won't be long
    And maybe I'll be real strong

    Maybe I'll do things right
    Maybe I'll start tonight
    You'll learn to cry like me, girl
    Baby, let's just wait and see

    Maybe I'll start tonight
    And do things right

    You'll control me, oh, so boldly
    Rule me 'til I'm free
    The pain that shakes me finally makes me
    Get up off of my knees
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Maybe I'll be fast as you
    Maybe I'll break hearts too
    But I think that you'll slow down
    When your turn to hurt comes around

    Maybe I'll break hearts
    And be as fast as you, uh

    You'll control me, oh, so boldly
    Rule me 'til I'm free
    The pain that shakes me finally makes me
    Get up off of my knees

    Maybe I'll be fast as you
    Maybe I'll break hearts too
    I think that you'll slow down
    When your turn to hurt comes around

    Maybe I'll break hearts
    And be as fast as you
    Maybe I'll break hearts
    And be as fast as you

    Oh, sucker​

    Every once in awhile I still like to put on some Red Sovine, reminds me of my dad. I like anything from his time. George, Tanya, Dolly, Buck.

    Willie's Roadhouse on XM has a lot of old country on it. One of the most memorable concerts I ever went to was Charley Rich in OKC. And there was always Buck Owens on He Haw. To me, the passing of George Jones has marked an end to an era. I like a huge amount of New Country but you would think all the artists were a bunch of bad asses according to their music! But it all seems so selfish and self promoting. Vanity in men is like lipstick on a pig. Conway Twitty could pull it off but I use the term "Manufactured Cowboy" with a lot of them these days.

    It is like the show Nashville. I loved that show in the beginning but a season into it has made Austin Texas seem normal. Everyone sleeps with everyone, they need to rename it "Berkley" and change states and time period. The music is great on that show but it kinda puts a black eye on Music City.

    My daddy left home when I was three
    And he didn't leave much to ma and me
    Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze.
    Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid
    But the meanest thing that he ever did
    Was before he left, he went and named me "Sue."

    Well, he must o' thought that is quite a joke
    And it got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folk,
    It seems I had to fight my whole life through.
    Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
    And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
    I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

    Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean,
    My fist got hard and my wits got keen,
    I'd roam from town to town to hide my shame.
    But I made a vow to the moon and stars
    That I'd search the honky-tonks and bars
    And kill that man who gave me that awful name.

    Well, it was Gatlinburg in mid-July
    And I just hit town and my throat was dry,
    I thought I'd stop and have myself a brew.
    At an old saloon on a street of mud,
    There at a table, dealing stud,
    Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me "Sue."

    Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad
    From a worn-out picture that my mother'd had,
    And I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye.
    He was big and bent and gray and old,
    And I looked at him and my blood ran cold
    And I said: "My name is 'Sue!' How do you do!
    Now your gonna die!!"

    Well, I hit him hard right between the eyes
    And he went down, but to my surprise,
    He come up with a knife and cut off a piece of my ear.
    But I busted a chair right across his teeth
    And we crashed through the wall and into the street
    Kicking and a' gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer.

    I tell ya, I've fought tougher men
    But I really can't remember when,
    He kicked like a mule and he bit like a crocodile.
    I heard him laugh and then I heard him cuss,
    He went for his gun and I pulled mine first,
    He stood there lookin' at me and I saw him smile.

    And he said: "Son, this world is rough
    And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough
    And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along.
    So I give ya that name and I said goodbye
    I knew you'd have to get tough or die
    And it's the name that helped to make you strong."

    He said: "Now you just fought one hell of a fight
    And I know you hate me, and you got the right
    To kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you do.
    But ya ought to thank me, before I die,
    For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in ya eye
    Cause I'm the son-of-a-***** that named you "Sue.'"

    I got all choked up and I threw down my gun
    And I called him my pa, and he called me his son,
    And I came away with a different point of view.
    And I think about him, now and then,
    Every time I try and every time I win,
    And if I ever have a son, I think I'm gonna name him
    Bill or George! Anything but Sue! I still hate that name!
