Billy Mata performs "Bubbles in My Beer" (Mon, 20 Aug 2018)
BILLY MATA WEBSITE PENNY GILLEY WEB
"Bubbles in My Beer" is a Western swing song that was originally recorded by Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys in 1947. It later became a standard that has been performed by many country music artists. One critic of drinking songs ranks it number 20, calls it "the ultimate self-pity song," and credits it with "setting the tone for a whole genre of songs about drowning sorrows in the barroom."   The song's origins are the subject of different accounts ; but there is agreement that Texas Playboys vocalist Duncan came up with the song's title and refrain, at which point songwriter Cindy Walker became involved.Walker has been quoted as saying: "If you can get a real good title, you’ve got something. I always write from the title. I’ve never written a song without the title." WIKIPEDIA
Bob Wills Bubbles In My Beer Lyrics   Tonight in a bar alone I'm sitting apart from The laughter and the cheer Scenes from the past Rise before me Watching the bubbles in my beer Visions of someone Who loved me Brings a lone silent tear to my eye And I know that my life's Been a failure Watching the bubbles in my beer I'm seeing the road That I've traveled A road filled with heartaches and tears And I'm seeing the past That I've wasted Watching the bubbles in my beer Visions of someone who loved me Brings a lone silent tear to my eye And I know that my life's been a failure Watching the bubbles in my beer

Conway Twitty You've Never Been This Far Before Lyrics I can almost hear the stillness as it yields to the sound of your heart beating and I can almost hear the echo of the thoughts that I know you must be thinking and I can feel your body tremble as you wonder what this moment holds in store and as I put my arms around you I can tell you've never been this far before   I don't know what I'm saying  as my trembling fingers touch forbidden places I only know that I have waited for so long for the chance that we are taking I don't know and I don't care what made you tell him you don't love him anymore and as I taste your tender kisses  I can tell you've never been this far before   and as I take the love you're giving I can feel the tension building in your mind and you're wondering if tomorrow I'll still love you like I'm loving you tonight you have no way of knowing  but tonight will only make me love you more and I hope that you'll believe me 'cause I know you've never been this far before

David Frizzell - I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home lyrics   I came crawling home last night, like many nights before: I finally made it to my feet as she opened up the door. And she said, "You're not gonna do this anymore." She said: "I'm gonna' hire a wino to decorate our home, "So you'll feel more at ease here, and you won't have to roam. "We'll take out the dining room table, and put a bar along that wall. "And a neon sign, to point the way, to our bathroom down the hall." She said: "Just bring your Friday paycheck, and I'll cash them all right here. "And I'll keep on tap - for all your friends, their favorite kinds of beer. "And for you, I'll always keep in stock, those soft aluminum cans. "And when you're feeling macho, you can crush them like a man." She said: "We'll rip out all the carpet, and put sawdust on the floor. "Serve hard boiled eggs and pretzels, and I won't cook no more. "There'll be Monday night football, on T.V. above the bar. "And a pay phone in the hallway, when your friends can't find their car." She said: "I'm gonna' hire a wino to decorate our home, "So you'll feel more at ease here, and you won't have to roam. "We'll take out the dining room table, and put a bar along that wall. "And a neon sign, to point the way, to our bathroom down the hall." She said: "You'll get friendly service, and for added atmosphere. "I'll slip on something sexy, and I'll cut it clear to here. "Then you can slap my bottom, every time you tell a joke. "Just as long as you keep tipping, well, I'll laugh until you're broke." She said: "Instead of family quarrels, we'll have a bar-room brawl, "When the Ham's bear say's its closing time, you won't have far to crawl. "And when you run out of money, you'll have me to thank. "You can sleep it off next morning, when I'm putting it in the bank." She said: "I'm gonna' hire a wino, to decorate our home, "So you can feel more at ease here, and you won't have to roam. "When you and your friends get off from work, and have a powerful thirst. "There won't be any reason, why you can't stop off here first." She said: "I'm gonna' hire a wino to decorate our home, "So you'll feel more at ease here, and you won't have to roam. "We'll take out the dining room table, and put a bar along that wall. "And a neon sign, to point the way, to our bathroom down the hall."

Jim Stafford performs "Spiders & Snakes" (Tue, 14 Aug 2018)
"Spiders & Snakes" is a 1974 hit song recorded by Jim Stafford and written by Stafford and David Bellamy. It was the second of four U.S. Top 40 singles released from his eponymous debut album and also the highest-charting.   The song is about a boy who, although he is shy, has a girl who likes him named Mary Lou. He makes faltering attempts to respond to her when they are alone, which finally include trying to give her a frog. She promptly protests and summarily rebuffs him. Still in school, they later develop a more mature relationship with the boy as the initiator instead of Mary Lou, but when they are once again alone she nonetheless feels the need to remind him, still nervous, that she does "not" like spiders and snakes, or any other such similar creatures, and that it takes something else to satisfy her loving desires.   "Spiders and Snakes" was one of the top hits of 1974, spending one week at number three on the US Billboard Hot 100. In Canada, the song reached number one.The song spent five and a half months on the US charts, sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the RIAA on March 8, 1974   WIKIPEDIA
Jim Stafford - Spiders & Snakes lyrics   I remember when Mary Lou said 'You want to walk me home from school' And I said, 'Yes, I do' She said, 'I don't have to go right home And I'm the kind that likes to be alone As long as you would' I said, 'Me, too' And so we took a stroll Wound up down by the swimmin' hole And she said, 'Do what you want to do' I got silly and I found a frog In the water by a hollow log And I shook it at her And I said 'This frog's for you' She said 'I don't like spiders and snakes And that ain't what it takes to love me You fool, you fool I don't like spiders and snakes And that ain't what it takes to love me Like I want to be loved by you' Well, I think of that girl from time to time I call her up when I got a dime I say, "Hello, baby' She says, 'Ain't you cool' I say, 'Do you remember when? And would you like to get together again?' She says, 'I'll see you after school' I was shy and so for a while Most of my love was touch and smile 'Til she said, 'Come on over here' I was nervous as you might guess Still looking for somethin' to slip down her dress And she said, 'Let's make it perfectly clear' She said

Buck Owens performs "I Wouldn't Live In New York City" (Tue, 14 Aug 2018)
Alvis Edgar Owens Jr. (August 12, 1929 – March 25, 2006), professionally known as Buck Owens, was an American musician, singer, songwriter and band leader who had 21 No. 1 hits on the Billboard country music charts with his band the Buckaroos. They pioneered what came to be called the Bakersfield sound, named after Bakersfield, California, the city Owens called home and from which he drew inspiration for what he preferred to call American music.   While Owens originally used fiddle and retained pedal steel guitar into the 1970s, his sound on records and onstage was always more stripped-down and elemental. His signature style was based on simple storylines, infectious choruses, a twangy electric guitar, an insistent rhythm supplied by a drum track placed forward in the mix, and high two-part harmonies featuring him and his guitarist Don Rich.   From 1969 Owens co-hosted the TV series Hee Haw with Roy Clark. He left the cast in 1986. The accidental death of Rich, his best friend, in 1974 devastated him for years and halted his career until he performed with Dwight Yoakam in 1988.[citation needed] Owens died suddenly on March 25, 2006, shortly after performing at his Crystal Palace restaurant, club and museum in Bakersfield.   Owens is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.   WIKIPEDIA
Buck Owens - I Wouldn't Live In New York City lyrics   It ain't nothin' but a concrete jungle with people packed like sardines Where everybody's tryin' to live beyond their means Where all the natives hurry and scurry too and fro And like a fleas on a puppy dog they got no place to go.   I wouldn't live in New York City if they gave me the whole dang town Talk about a bummer it's the biggest one around Sodom and Gommorah was tame to what I found I wouldn't live in New York City if they gave me the whole dang town.   Well, I ain't seen the sunshine since the day that I arrived 'Cause brother I've been busy a-tryin' to survive Nobody knows you've been here till you're six feet under ground Than you become a statistic if they remember to write you down.   I wouldn't live in New York City if they gave me the whole dang town Talk about a bummer it's the biggest one around Sodom and Gommorah was tame to what I found I wouldn't live in New York City if they gave me the whole dang town...

George Strait And The Hee Haw Gang Comedy In The Cornfield (Tue, 14 Aug 2018)
The Cornfield—Vignettes patterned after Laugh-In's "Joke Wall," with cast members and guest stars "popping up" to tell jokes and one-liners. Until his death, Stringbean played the field's scarecrow, delivering one-liners before being shouted down by the crow on his shoulder; after his 1973 murder, Stringbean was not replaced; and a wooden scarecrow was simply seen in the field as a memorial. Guest stars often participated in this sketch as well; and on occasion, personalities from TV stations that carried Hee Haw, as well as country music radio personalities, would appear in this sketch with Owens or Clark.
