Hi, Greg Ê As per George Richardson's request from the July 28 issue,
here's the Doug Stone song he was looking for.Ê
One other person asked for it a while back and I already sent it to him.Ê It's called
"A Jukebox With A Country Song".
Ê I typed it from memory, but I'm sure it's accurate.
Glad to help out. Ê Don Fishback Ê
A Jukebox With A Country Song - Doug Stone
After three good years together
We had our first big fight
So she went to her mother's
And I went for a drive
Down that old familiar highway
Just a few miles out of town
To that run-down one-room tavern
That used to be my stompin' grounds
When I pulled into the driveway
Everything still looked the same
And I couldn't wait to down a few
And hear that jukebox ring
But when I walked in through the doorway
There stood some kind of maitre d
And he looked me up, and he looked me down, and said,
"Can I help you please?"
(And I said)
What'd you do with those swingin' doors?
And where's the sawdust on the floor?
Why's everybody wearin' suits and ties?
From where I stand I can't believe my eyes
And whose idea was it to hang these ferns?
This brand-new bar don't have a single burn
I guess I'm somewhere that I don't belong
I need a juke box with a country song
When I looked into the corner
Where the jukebox once stood proud
Some clown was playin' records...
Too fast, too long, and too loud
Well it must've been a big mistake
To try to speak my mind
But as they were askin' me to leave
I cried out one more time...
...I guess I don't belong
Without a jukebox and a country song
