Quirky Country Songs Celebration - Singing' The Blues

Did you know that today is...celebrating Quirky Country Music Song Titles?  

We chose an easy one: "Singin' the Blues" by  Marty Robbins. The lyrics are:

'Cause I never thought that I'd ever lose
Your love dear, why'd you do me this way
Well, I never felt more like cryin' all night
'Cause everything's wrong, there ain't nothin' right
With-out you, you got me singin' the blues.
Now the moon and stars no longer shine
The dream is gone I thought was mine
There's nothin' left for me to do
But cry-why-why over you
Well, I never felt more like runnin' away
But how can I go when I couldn't stay
With-out you, you got me singin' the blues.

What is YOUR favorite country song?

Friends in Low Places
Garth Brooks

Blame it all on my roots
I showed up in boots
And ruined your black tie affair
The last one to know
The last one to show
I was the last one
You thought you'd see there
And I saw the surprise
And the fear in his eyes
When I took his glass of champagne
And I toasted you
Said, honey, we may be through
But you'll never hear me complain
'Cause I've got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I'll be okay
I'm not big on social graces
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I've got friends in low places

I can remember my uncle singing that song and playing his ukelele. I was probably about 5 or 6 at the time.

We know that song by Dave Edmunds. We like early Johnny Cash or Jason & the Nashville Scorchers.
