Song Lyric Sunday – “Husbands & Wives” by Roger Miller & Others

Husbands and Wives is a mid-tempo waltz in the key of C major. It is about a couple who is breaking up. With both parties having too much pride in themselves to reconcile.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Today I Started Loving You Again” by Merle Haggard

No artist has ever written with conviction as Merle Haggard. His songs project his feelings at the time they were written. The lyrics to “Today, I Started Loving You Again” was a “love at first site” but with a broken heart that had healed and then reminded of the love that was lost but still there after putting eyes on that past lover.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Boondocks” by Little Big Town

I chose “Boondocks” by Little Big Town. This song is relatable to me! I was born in a small town in Texas and learned to play cards and dominos at a young age. When I stayed with my grandparents in the country on the weekends, we would get up and go to church on Sunday morning.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Check Yes or No” by George Strait

Elvis Presley may be known as the “King of Rock n’ Roll”, but George Strait is known as the “King of Country”. He is the most influential and popular recording country music artist of all time. He is a real Texas cowboy who just happens to be able to stand at a microphone and put the country roots into any song he can get his hands on.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Marie Laveau” & More

Marie Catherine Laveau was a free woman of color of African, Native American and French descent. She was born on September 10, 1801 in colonial New Orleans, Louisiana (French Quarter). Well known in New Orleans, she practiced Voodoo, was an herbalist & midwife.

Song Lyric Sunday – Between

Merle Haggard was married 5 times and had 4 children. Merle’s second wife was Bonnie Owens.

Song Lyric Sunday – The Night The Lights Went out in Georgia

This week I chose “The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia” by Vicki Lawrence and Reba McEntire. Vicki Lawrence recorded this Southern Gothic song which was released on November 27, 1972. Written & composed by Bobby Russell, the murder ballad became the only #1 hit Lawrence had in her career.

Song Lyric Sunday – Shall We Gather At the River

Hee Haw was an American television variety show featuring country music and humor as portrayed by the folks from fictional Kornfield Kounty. It was hosted by Roy Clark & Buck Owens. Each week, the characters on the show would entertain us with their skits and jokes.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Back to Earth” By Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard

There is no denying WIllie’s guitar and these lyrics fit so well with the mood of his melody.

Song Lyric Sunday – “I Melt” by Rascal Flatts

One night DeMarcus & LeVox were working in a Printer’s Alley nightclub when their part-time guitarist couldn’t make it one night. DeMarcus invited Rooney to join them. A bond was instantly formed!
