    "When I got back to bed someone had taken my place."

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Swingin' on the Riviera one day
    And then layin' in the Bombay alley next day

    and

    Now I don't mind choppin' wood, and I don't care if the money's no good
    Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest,

    Spent a night in LA
    just another chance to see you
    just you and I
    Wanted you to know
    that my playin days are over
    cause all I do is think of you

    I was listening to this one today. It's been a while!

    2nd one..Bobbie Gentry, "Harper Valley PTA".

    But, why do you post 2 different songs in the same post?

    Bobbie Gentry did "Tallahatchee Bridge". "Harper Valley" is by Jeannie C. Riley.

    I post two at a time to save a little typing. The first one is "A Dozen Pairs of Boots" by Del Reeves.

    ...there was a virus goin' round, papa caught it and he died last spri-ii-iing.
    And now mama doesn't want to do much of anythi-ii-iing.
    And as for me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ri-ii-iidge
    And throwing them in-to the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge

    Can't believe I missed them both, even after seeing Jeannie at Camp LeJeune.

    I'm getting CRS.

    They say heavy metal music causes violence? No. Hearing Harper Valley causes violence. I HATE that song. Hate Tallahatchee bridge too.

    I didn't say those were good songs- - - - -just obscure. Now if Jeannie had offered to do the horizontal tango with me back then, I would have been happy to make sure she couldn't sing a note for quite a while!

    How's this for obscure?

    Yes, it does. It was a cut and paste from the lyrics posted on the web. Change "hoses" to "horse"

    Never cared for that song much. I've heard it, but never knew the artist.

    One of my favorites. Not sure why, it makes no sense at ALL.
