A Country Song for Every Country Girl

Lyrics by Michael Kroth

 

Here’s a lover’s tune for every country girl

who never had her name in any country song.

Here’s for every single babe left out of all the swirl

of music sung to her on music stations all night long.

 

Here’s for every country boy who loves that certain sweetheart,

but cain’t find no way to play a track, karaoke her back, ain’t got the knack

for writin’ lyrics with her name on album titles front and back.

But…we…can…

 

This… song… ain’t… for…  (then kind of in the meter of the old Johnny Cash song, I’ve Been Everywhere)

Susan, Gloria, or Annie,

Not for Mary, Irene, Peggy Sue or Mandy,

It ain’t for Jolene, Judy, Jessica, or Jenny,

Not Maria, Caroline, or even Donna

There’s no lyrics here for Wendy, Maggie May, or Sandy

Or Dolly, Delta Dawn, or Debbie,

Not for a Mustang, Lay Down Sally,  and…not…

(Slowly, almost talking…) …a word for Georgia Brown, Molly Brown, or Ce…cil..i…a…

 

Here’s for all the country girls with no country songs for country boys to sing.

 

This song’s for Sophie,

and Gertrude, yes Gertrude,

And Violet, Hannah, Belle, and surely Zoey,

Stephanie you have a way with me,

and Sydney you make my heart beat rock.

This song’s for Sarah,

and Rachel, oh yes Rachel,

And Lana, Morgan, Evelyn, and Maya

Natalie I’m stuck on thee and

Ariana’s also on my mind.

 

Here’s a country song, for every country girl, for every country boy to sing to her.

For every single babe without a rave, no DJ playin’ goodbye songs,

lover’s wrongs, or come back melodies.

 

Here’s a country tune, for every country girl, who never had her name in any country song.

Here’s a country tune, for every country girl, who never had her name in any country song.

Here’s a country tune, for every country girl, who never had her name in any country song.
