George Strait: A Man In Legendary Lyrics
For my birthday one year--I couldn't have been more than 9 or 10--I got a brand-spankin' new Walkman and shiny, black plastic headphones from my best friend. Included were three cassettes: Mariah Carey, Cyprus Hill, and John Michael Montgomery (If that isn't an eclectic mix of music, I don't know what is).
Hang on... I'll get to the point.
I listened to that John Michael Montgomery cassette so many times, I knew the words to all the songs the first day I got it. And to this day, when I hear someone mention George Strait, I think of this cassette. My childhood. It brings back a happy feeling for a number of reasons.
John Michael Montgomery had a song called, "Cowboy Love." And in it, he sings about schmoozing a woman, winning her affections, and having her fall in love with a Cowboy. How? By seeing his pick-up truck, country line-dancing, and listening to classic, bonafide country music--Like George Strait.
Underneath the midnight moonlight, Cuddled up real tight, Cozied down by a fire, Listenin' to some George Strait, George Jones, Country love songs you'll change your mind
George Strait, to me, has always been an idol to past and present country singers. He's mentioned time and time again in their songs. HIT songs even.
Which got me thinking....who else has George Strait in their lyrics?
Love George Strait? Consider yourself one of his biggest fans? We just so happen to be giving away a chance to see him perform at his last concert in Dallas, TX! Head over to enter now!
And then they're heading to the honkey tonk
But loud crowds and line dancing
Just ain't what they really want
Drive out to the boondocks and park down by the creek
And where it's George Strait 'til real late
And dancing cheek to cheek
Something tells me she'll sit out the first one
Then they'll play George Strait and she'll be gone
Cause heaven knows that girl was born to two-step
And Texas women don't stay lonely long
I got more money than George Strait
I throw benjies out the window all day
Just to see how far they fly, bye bye
I get more girls then the president
Mom and dad still pay the rent
And I throw parties all night long
Crank up the band play the steel guitar,
Hank it up a little lets rock this bar.
Threw back a shot yelled I'm a George Strait Junkie
Ayoo Play somethin Country
Ayoo aw Play somethin country
Man I Love How Redman Taste
And Damn I Love My Nascar Race
Any Song Sung By George Strait
Is Country At It's Best
Give it to me Strait
Sing "Am I Blue" while I sit here and cry
And tell me how My baby's gotten so good at goodbye
It's gonna take a fireman to put this old flame out
So come on give it to me Strait
Before I come unwound
The Pyrmid of cans in the pale moon light
And that Summer Becky broke my heart
Alabama sang old flame burnin'
Well I've danced with George Strait
Drank with George Jones
My life's been a country song.
I've got posters on my wall of
Skynyrd, Kid and Strait
Some people look down on me,
But I don't give a rip
I'll stand barefooted in my own
Front yard with a baby on my hip
It's too Garth, too George Strait
Too right down the center, too left of the plate
The hook's too weak or the subject matter's way too strong whatever
Yeah and it's too bad they don't just
Big hair, pink lips, eyes all painted up
Spray net and George Strait riding in her pickup truck
Midnight, highway, headed for the club Siam
Heartbeat hot spot, looking for a cowboy man
I'm a talking about
