They Sing About Me

by Brett Matthew West

They Sing About Me


Let's all slip away together on a "Wild Weekend"
They just don't come no better than the Tall Texan
But, I feel more like the statue Jack still sings about
There's been a whole lot of barns my daddy's took me out
I don't believe they sing about me
On the stage of the Grand Ole Opry
A bad day here in Nashville's
Better than anywhere that you might be

"Rocky Top" will always be a song I'm gonna sing
I know George and Tammy and a "Golden {Wedding} Ring"
But, "Don't Come Home A-drinkin' With Lovin' On Your Mind"
On that "Orange Blossom Special" you left my love behind
I don't believe they sing about me
On the stage of the Grand Ole Opry
A bad day here in Nashville's
Better than anywhere that you might be

Don't just stand there in the middle of the pouring rain
We all know you're never coming back again
But, take away these teardrops from an "Unclouded Day"
Your love is like a game too many daddy's play
I don't believe they sing about me
On the stage of the Grand Ole Opry
A bad day here in Nashville's
Better than anywhere that you might be

I'd rather spend my midnight hours at a jamboree
Than "Walkin' The Floor" to forget your memory
From thirty thousand feet up in the air I can't see you below
Honky-Tonkin' Angel it's time to let you go
I don't believe they sing about me
On the stage of the Grand Ole Opry
A bad day here in Nashville's
Better than anywhere that you might be

Of course I had to chose one of Loyd C. Taylor, Sr's picture for my final lyric.

After all, I have used several of his pictures before for my lyrics.

This one is known as "Rhythm Fingers".

So, once again, thank you Loyd C. Taylor, Sr, for the use of your picture.

It goes so nicely with my lyrics.
