Someone said I was starting to sound country. I went all in.  This was a potload of fun! Constructive criticism welcome.

Barry this is so great. Just love it.
You could almost make two songs from all you've put into it.


"it's country not Shakespeare"
"no alcohol no drug abuse I miss that part"
the board meeting or whatever talking about what is country music

One suggestion. I think I'd leave out the "good" in "it's not a good country song"
Seems like it would flow better.
Looking forward to your next one.

The actual line is "I missed that part" but your version is funnier. 😄

I'll consider your other suggestion as well. Could be!!!

Thanks for the kind words.

You got a good ear! Yes, when I first laid down that track, I thought "does that sound too much like T. Rex?"  But when I went to add the acoustic rhythm guitar, I came up with this contrapuntal pulsing thing that gave it a whole new feel. Most importantly, I had a friend who lived in Houston for ten years who said "this is TOTALLY the kind of song I used to line dance to." Mission accomplished!

I really feel this is the best I've done. I'm really getting the hang of this.

Thanks for the kind words.
