Country Song
George Smith & David Brown

He didn’t jump into his pick-up and hit the road
Or hit the bottle with the same gusto
He didn’t stand out in the rain all night
Sucking soggy cigarettes that wouldn’t light
He didn’t take it like a man, on the chin
He didn’t manage anything masculine

He just went and did his nine-to-five
Looking unusually pre-occupied

They were deeply in love
Just not getting along
But that’s not enough
To make a Country song

She didn’t take his picture and tear it up
She didn’t cry all night and curse her luck
She didn’t take a kitchen knife to his clothes
Then call her Mom and take an overdose
She didn’t think once to seek revenge
She didn’t call up a hundred old boyfriends

She took the kids to school,
she made a shopping list
Trying to live instead of just exist

They were deeply in love
Just not getting along
But that’s not enough
To make a Country song

She didn’t throw his suitcase on the lawn
He didn’t take a shotgun from the wall
She didn’t scream that he was less than a man
He didn’t say “If I can’t - nobody can!”
He didn’t take his aim and take her life
Then get The Chair until his brain was fried

They talked it out, they healed the scars
But that won’t get them in the Country charts

They were deeply in love
Just not getting along
But that’s not enough
To make a Country song
