Not so much FrontBurner as it is D Magazine. Whilst during some Web site-y things, I stumbled across a headline of an old D Magazine story from March 1979. (Told you it was old.) The headline: “I Don’t Know Whether to Kill Myself or Go Bowling.” I couldn’t not check it out. Glad I did. It’s a collection of some of Country and Western’s greatest lyrics as compiled by Curt Mosher, Bob Griffin, Walt Garrison, and former P.R. director of the Dallas Cowboys Doug Todd. Check out the whole thing, but here’s a sampling of a few of my faves:
“Them that ain’t got can’t lose.”
“Thank God and Greyhound you’re gone.”
“Just in time to be too late.”
“It wouldn’t be so bad if it hadn’t been so good.”
“I need somebody bad tonight ’cause I just lost somebody good.”
Go find your own.
