FYM, if you put angle brackets<> around br after the first line < br > (but without the spaces), copy it, paste it at the end of each line, you can get this kind of thing to print out right. doublepaste the "br" html described above for paragraphs or verse breaks, or between title and text, etc. Some people type the < br> after each line, but the copy and paste saves a lot of time.

That is correct. "I've Been Flushed From The Bathroom Of Your Heart"
was by Johnny Cash.
No one posted who the artist to "All My Ex's Live in Texas" was.
It was George Strait.
"All My Ex's Live In Texas"; is aslo a humorous song, which I wrote
a parody for. (Trying my hardest to keep the lyrics clean).

I remember hearing a classic in the seventies called, "The Tears Have Washed I Love You From the Blackboard of My Heart". It was serious. I should not have laughed. Then there was a ditty called "The Banana Bowl" allegedly about college life, that I heard way to often as I was sweating for exams. There was also a song called "Bring Back the MiniSkirt."
Of Course there's the infamous Harper Valley PTA. When the album came out, there were songs about all the members of the Harper Valley PTA. I kind of wish I knew what they'd been up to.

Are You Drinkin With Me Jesus?

At the Gas Station of Love, I Got the Self Service Pump

Billy Broke My Heart at Walgreens and I Cried All the Way to Sears

Come out of the Wheatfield Nellie, You're Going Against the Grain

Did I Shave my Legs for This?

Don't Chop Any Wood Mother, I'm Comin' in With a Load!

Don't Give Me A Plastic Saddle 'Cuz I Want To Feel That Leather When I Ride

Get Off the Table, Mabel (The Two Dollars is for the Beer)

I Gave Her My Heart And A Diamond And She Clubbed Me With A Spade

I Gave Her the Ring, and She Gave Me the Finger

I Got Tears In My Ears From Lying On My Bed Crying On My Pillow Over You

I Want a Beer as Cold as My Ex-Wife's Heart

I Was Looking Back to See If You Were Looking Back to See If I Was Looking Back to See if You Were Looking Back at Me

I Went Back to My Fourth Wife for the Third Time and Gave Her a Second Chance to Make a First Class Fool Out of Me

I Wish I Were A Woman (So I Could Go Out With A Guy Like Me)

I'd Rather Hear A Fat Girl Fart Than A Pretty Boy Sing

I'm So Miserable Without You, it's Almost like Having you Here

I Fell In A Pile Of You And Got Love All Over Me

I Flushed You From The Toilet Of My Heart.

I Keep Forgettin' I Forgot About You

I Wanna Whip Your Cow

I Would Have Wrote You A Letter, But I Couldn't Spell Yuck

I Wouldn't Take Her To A Dawg Fight, Cause I'm Afraid She'd Win

I'd Rather Have A Bottle In Front Of Me Than A Frontal Lobotomy

I'm Just A Bug On The Windshield Of Life

I've Got The Hungries For Your Love And I'm Waiting In Your Welfare Line

If I Can't Be Number One In Your Life, Then Number Two On You

If Love Were Oil, I'd Be A Quart Low

If You Don't Leave Me Alone, I'll Go And Find Someone Else Who Will

Mama Get The Hammer There's A Fly On Papa's Head

My Every Day Silver Is Plastic

My John Deere Was Breaking Your Field, While Your Dear John Was Breaking My Heart

My Wife Ran Off With My Best Friend, And I Sure Do Miss Him

Oh, I've Got Hair Oil On My Ears And My Glasses Are Slipping Down, Baby I Can See Through You

Pardon Me, I've Got Someone To Kill

She Got The Gold Mine And I Got The Shaft

She Got The Ring And I Got The Finger

She Made Toothpicks Out Of The Timber Of My Heart

Thank God And Greyhound She's Gone

They May Put Me In Prison, But They Can't Stop My Face From Breakin' Out

Velcro Arms, Teflon Heart

When You Leave Walk Out Backwards, So I'll Think You're Walking In

You Can't Have Your Kate And Edith Too

You Can't Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd

You Done Tore Out My Heart And Stomped That Sucker Flat

You Were Only A Splinter As I Slid Down The Bannister Of Life

You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly

If You Walk Away From Me, I'll Love You From Behind

Subject: Lyr Add: TOO FAST FOR RAPID CITY (Layng Martine)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 15 Oct 15 - 11:00 PM

I heard this song once on the radio over 30 years ago, and never heard it again until today, when I happened to think of looking for it.

Transcribed from YouTube:


TOO FAST FOR RAPID CITY
Words and music by Layng Martine, Jr.
As recorded by Sheila Andrews on "Love Me Like a Woman" (1979)

1. Well the summer I was sixteen, my daddy caught me
In a compromisin' spot with a boy I knew,
And it wasn't long after that
He caught me way out back
With another young man and a jug o' mountain dew.

2. And he spread the word around that I was a wild child.
I could hear the whispers ever'where I'd go,
For the rumors they persisted,
And I kept right on resistin',
Till one night daddy knocked me to the floor.

CHORUS: He said: You're livin' just a little bit too fast for Rapid City.
You better slow down, girl; think about who you are.
You're livin' just a little too fast for Rapid City,
And you're gonna wake up some day,
See the future has gone away,
And the woman that you could have been
Ain't comin' back again.

3. Well the years slipped by before I hardly knew.
Pretty soon I dug a hole so deep.
The boy that I'd been lovin'
Left me with a kid and one in the oven,
Plus twenty-three bucks and a shack on a dead-end street.

4. Well now I do my swingin' on a tire in the back yard,
Some dreams and some moonshine in my head,
And my little girl thinks she's grown.
She came home last night at dawn.
She laughed right in my face when I said:

CHORUS: You're livin'....

REPEAT CHORUS AND FADE.
