50's TV: "Music Makin' Mama From Memphis" performed by Hank Snow on CBS-TV. Very underrated!

Taylor Swift - You're Not Sorry

[I do not own anything. All content belongs to Big Machine Records & Taylor Swift. No copyright infringement intended] Taylor Swift's newest song called you're not sorry

All this time I was wasting
Hoping you would come around
I've been giving out chances
Everytime and all you do is let me down
And it's taken me this long
Baby but I've figured you out
And you thinking we'll be fine again
But not this time around

You don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't want to hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry
No, no, no, no

Looking so innocent
I might believe you
If I didn't know
Could have loved you all my life
If you had'nt left me waiting
In the cold
And you've got your share of secrets
And I'm tired of being last to know
And now you're asking me to listen
'Cause it's worked each time before

But you don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't want to hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry
No, no, oh
You're not sorry
No, no, oh

You had me crawling for you honey
And it never would have gone away, no
You used to shine so bright
But I watched all of it fade

So you don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
There's nothing left to beg for
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry
No, no, oh
You're not sorry
No, no, oh...

George Jones - White Lightning

Well in North Carolina way back in the hills
There lived my old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightnin' till the sun went down
Then he filled him a jug and he passed it around

Mighty mighty pleasing my pappy's corn squeezings ooh white Lightnin'


Well the "G" men "T" men revenuers too
Looking for the place where he made his brew
They were looking tryin to book him but my
pappy kept on cooking ooh white Lighnin'

Well I asked my pappy what he called his brew
He said white lightnin stead of mountain dew
I took one sip and right away I knew
Cause my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Lightnin' started flashin thunder started
crashing ooh white lightnin'

repeat chorus

Well a city slicker came and he said "I'm tough"
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff
He took one sip and drank it right down
And I heard him a moaning as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasing your pappys
corn squeezings ooh white lightnin'

San Antonio Stroll - Tanya Tucker (Original 1975 Version)

They just don't make 'em like this anymore!

Tanya Tucker
"San Antonio Stroll"
Released: 1975
Album: Tanya Tucker


When I was a child down in South Caroline
Soon as Saturday sun went on down.
My folks and sister would go and leave me home all alone,
Going to that big square dance in town.
Well my old radio would play that old opry show,
So I never got lonesome or blue.
I'd fall asleep in my chair and dream that I was right there,
Just singing the whole night through.
When my folks would come home, they'd be humming a song,
Mama'd smile and say: "Child, don't you know,
"There ain't a thing in this world to make you fall in love girl,
"Like the San Antonio Stroll?"

Well the day finally come when my mama said: "Hun,
"It's 'bout time you came with us as well."
Well, I had me a time, yes, I danced all the night,
'Til they rang that ol' cracked-midnight bell.
Then the lights went down low, the fiddler picked up his bow,
And he played something stately and slow.
And my sister Eileen and her husband-to-be,
They held hands and began to stroll.
I've been away for a while, but it still brings a smile,
When I think of the way that it goes.
Now I'll sing it to you just so we both can do,
That old San Antonio Stroll.

Yes, I'll sing it to you just so we all can do,
That old San Antonio Stroll.

Skeeter Davis - He'll Have To Stay

What an obscure song. Skeeter was the queen of answer songs. This one to Jim Reeve's "He'll Have to Go".

Year: 1961 Album: Here's the Answer

Skeeter Davis with the answer song to Jim Reeves "He'll Have To Go".

I am glad you've finally called me on the phone
I've been waiting here tonight but not alone
You broke the date that we had made just yesterday
Now there's someone else who's here, he'll have to stay

I have found another love I know is true
And he holds me much more tenderly than you
Loving you's not worth the price I have to pay
Someone else is in your place, he'll have to stay

Once I loved you with all my heart
But now I must say no
You broke my heart too many times
So now you'll have to go

I can hear the jukebox playing soft and low
And you're out again with someone else, I know
My love was blind, i'm not your kind that's all I'll say
So you can hang up, I'm in his arms, he'll have to stay...

Year: 1961 Album: Here's The Answer

Skeeter Davis with her answer song to Floyd Cramers 'Last Date'. Reached #5 on the Country charts and #26 on the Pop charts. Her 2nd big crossover success.

One hour and I'll be meeting you
I know you're gonna make me blue
My heart is trembling through and through
Cause I know very well I can tell I can tell
This will be my last date with you

Just can't believe that this could end
I know I'll never love again
You'll ask me to be just a friend
It's as plain as can be I can see I can see
This will be my last date with you

[ strings ]
I know we had a quarrel but all sweethearts do
I gave my love to prove to you
That I will always love you and be true

I know you've met somebody new
You tell me you and I are through
My plans and dreams cannot come true
And when you say goodbye I know I will cry
Cause I'll know it's my last date with you...

Conway Twitty - Last Date

Skeeter Davis - (I Can't Help You) I'm Falling Too

Live performance of Skeeter Davis at the Opry in 1962. Singing her big crossover hit and answer song "I Can't Help You I'm Falling Too" (answers "Please Help Me I'm Falling" by Hank Locklin) of which i posted the album version earlier. Now you can see her live!

for those who wanna sing along,
You say that you're falling
But what can I do?
You want me to help you
But I'm fallin' too
I know that we're wrong, dear
But when I'm with you
I can't help you, darlin'
'Cause I'm fallin' too

You belong to another
Who's arms have grown cold
But you must keep the vows, dear
Although they've grown old
You can never be free, dear
Though our love is true
I can't help you, darlin'
'Cause I'm fallin' too

We could never be happy
Living in sin
Our love's a temptation
But we just can't win
You ask me to help you
But what can I do?
I can't help you, darlin'
'Cause I'm fallin' too

Please Mr. Custer - Larry Verne

Five Brothers - Marty Robbins


Five brothers who left Arkansas
Set out to find the gambler
Who murdered their pa
Five brothers and three in their teens
Gotta find the man
Who killed their pa in New Orleans

They heard of him in Houston
And his trail was leadin' west
He'd left there many months ago
And so they couldn't rest
Five brothers and three in their teens
Gotta find the man
Who killed their pa in New Orleans
New Orleans

The sun was hot as fire
And the nights were cold as steel
Hate was strong and youth was wild
And so they couldn't feel
Five brothers and three in their teens
Gotta find the man
Who killed their pa in New Orleans

His trail led to the Badlands
And the desert promised death
The gambler's odds were different now
He treasured every breath
Five brothers and three in their teens
Close behind the man
Who killed their pa in New Orleans
New Orleans

When first they saw the killer
He was by the waterhole
Five rifles rang out through the night
They killed the gambler cold
Five brothers and three in their teens
Finally got the man
Who killed their pa in New Orleans

The desert is their keeper now
For this a traveler said
That poison lived within the hole
Now six of them are dead
Five brothers and three in their teens
Lay beside the man
Who killed their pa in New Orleans
Lay beside the man
Who killed their pa in New Orleans

As a pianist, "The Killer" Jerry Lee Lewis always complained because he had to sit down during his shows. Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash suggested him to stand up. Jerry Lee accepted their advice. So he started to kick the chairs, to go up on the keyboards and even to burn pianos.

I want to invite you to visit the official Jerry Lee Lewis Website. Great music there.
