I'll save everyone a full repetition of the lyrics, but it's all the parts of county music I don't like: girls can only be "sweet, little, wonderful, beautiful" (why *not* play football with her and imagine her holding the trophy?); teenage love as the be all and end all (how long after 16 did they get married anyway); girls ruining boys dreams (he's dropping football passes).
I'm more of an old-time country fan, of performers like Patsy Cline, early Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash and especially Hank Williams.
Hank Williams to me is the essence of the sad, reflective, yet honest and self-reliant aspect of country music. You listen to Hank Williams when you're down, and you think two things: "Hank, you got it right" and "Wow, that Hank Williams is way worse off than I am. Maybe things aren't so bad after all."
Tell us about it, Hank. Tell us about it.
