Mbo Country & Western are they different? (50) RE: Country & Western are they different? 04 Oct 00


Spaw...where are you getting this from? As a big fan of Billy Ray Cyrus, I can tell you a.) he is not that popular anymore, and b.) he NEVER sings songs about cheating and drinking. His last song was this classic:

I gave two teeth in a teenage brawl
To a girl whose name I can't recall
Then we broke up ...
I gave a knee to the football team
Chasing that high school state champ dream
We almost won ...
I gave junior college almost a year
Then I gave a Greyhound twenty bucks, and that's how I got here

I give all my money, for a slice of daily bread
I give forty honest hours, to a boss I never met
And I gave my soul to Jesus, at the age of twenty-two
So there ain't much left to offer, but I give my heart to you

I gave a beard and a head of hair
To a boot camp corporal with a barbers chair at Camp Lejeune...
I gave Uncle Sam what he bargained for
Twenty-four months not a minute more
I just didn't fit in
Then I gave a high school friend of mine a call
And we gave a body shop a try 'til we gave up last fall

I give all of my money, for a slice of daily bread
I give forty honest hours, to a boss I never met
And I gave my soul to Jesus, at the age of twenty-two
So there ain't much left to offer, but I give my heart to you

And I gave my soul to Jesus, at the age of twenty-two
So there ain't much left to offer, but I give my heart to you


Camp Lejuene is in Jacksonville, NC. It's 10 minutes from my parents' house. I'm there all the time on weekends. BTW for all your hatred on modern country music, you all sure as hell seem to like it when I sing it on Hearme. In fact, I think I'll do all-country on my Hearme concert tomorrow. Serve you right.
