Subject: Do you know this country song?
From: GUEST,guest
Date: 03 Feb 03 - 09:48 PM

Could anyone identify a song title for me? It was a country song, circa 1996-1998. The storyline was about a man telling about how he was drinking too much, refused to let his wife drive, had a wreck and killed her.

Boy that is a country song, isn't it?

And no, I don't remember if it was a pickup truck.

Thank you for your help.

Tammie

Hmmm. We didn't get an answer for this one.

marc - I don't think that's the song. See Last Kiss, where the lyrics are posted. That song was written by Wayne Cochran and was a hit for him in 62; the Pearl Jam version is a cover. There's nothing to do with drinking and driving or refusing to let his wife drive in the lyrics, which is why I don't think it's the answer.

I don't know if this is the song you're looking for, but it fits the theme:

"Flowers" - Billy Yates (also recorded by Chris Young)

FLOWERS
(recorded by Billy Yates & Chris Young)

I should've took you dancin
A little candle light romancin', with roses
But I was high upon a bar stool
I was such a blind fool, now I know it
You won't believe how much I've changed since you left
It took losin' you, for me to find myself

Oh, I wish that you could see me
Steady hands without the whiskey, you'd be so proud
Got that job down at the factory
A brand new suit for Sunday, I'm in church now
It's been one year since I sat behind a bar
I went by the junk-yard, they've still got our car

I still see you on your knees
Beggin' me not to drive
But I took away the keys
And made you climb inside
An' I'd take your place in this field of stone
If I only had the power
Look what it took
For me to finally bring you flowers

Oh, I'd take your place in this field of stone
If I only had the power
Look what it took
For me to finally bring you flowers
Just look what it took
For me to finally bring you flowers

That certainly fits the bill, Guest. It was also a hit in 97, so it's the right time-frame too. Whether Tammie is still checking in after 8 years to tell us if it really is the song she wanted is another matter.

Still, it looks to me as if the request can be crossed off!

Mick

I don't remember this particular song but it puts in mind of a song called 'I Heard The Wreck On The Highway But I didn't Hear Nobody Pray'. I think it was written by Roy Acuff although I first heard it sung by the great flat-picking guitar man Malcolm Price in the UK folk clubs during the late 1960s.
