Story

My brother likes country music and had told me that I should try my hand at composing country songs. Also, I have a beautiful friend who lives in S. Carolina, so both these facts influenced me in attempting my very first (and so far, only) country song. Since country music is related to blues, I decided to include it in this album.

Lyrics

FIRST-TIME COUNTRY SONG Michael Dyer © 2009 She likes country more, than even her malt liquor. So I'm tryin' to compose, God only knows, A simple country song, that sticks like liquorice, For my sweet, soft, southern dish. This northern urbanite, usually just writes, Folk-rock songs or blues, but now I wanna delight, My darlin' southern belle, with country-rock or -lite. Least-ways, for a spell. So this northern man's gotta try his hand, At a first-time country song, For a one-man, country band. Up north you can hear, just about what you please. The Bee Gees, even some, Mariachis. And Gretchen Wilson or the Dixie Chicks. You got all your picks. So I think it's time to try my hand, At a first-time country song, For a one-man, country band. And for my sweet, malt-liquor drinkin', Southern woman.
