Can you give me an idea for a country song?

Asked by Kayak8 (16438points) June 9th, 2009

We’ve been through my dog left, my wife left, my house burnt down, etc. I need a good (and unique) idea for a country song. I am more interested in funny than mushy.

What about one where you just sing about how everything is fantastic? You could make that funny and parody what most people think of country music.

How about:

From the seas off California’s coast
To the Atlantic east of Maine
I am the nightmare of both the Left and Right
A blue-collar redneck WITH A BRAIN!

I work in the country and live in a small town…dicks.:)

Probably something about the failure of GM or Chrysler and the effect on a small town when the only dealership closes.

GM is bankrupt and my job is down the tubes. Worst of all my truck needs repair and they ain’t making parts anymore.

I got my right hand blown off in a hunting accident, now i can’t touch myself to the memory of you.

@eponymoushipster . . .You still have your left hand.

Perhaps that one is busy with your progressive, metro-sexual, best friend, Evan, whom you are only giving sexual release because he just found out his portfolio tanked in the bailout mess?

@Blondesjon he’s a country boy. the devil lives in your lefthand, and if you touch your “baby straw” with your left hand, it’ll go leprous and fall off!

Blondesjon's avatar

@eponymoushipster . . .That’s a myth. You’ve touched hundreds of “baby straws” with your demon tongue and you still don’t sound like Helen Keller when you talk.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Blondesjon tongue != left hand, though. and they were “baby cupcake holders”, not straws.

Some times I get the “you never remember to do the things I ask you” speech from my wife, so I really try hard to make sure not to forget…some times I still do, nothing intentional mind you, just I might have 15 things going on and I remember 14, but miss one, always seems to be the one thing she’ll latch onto. I know this is not at all abnormal for married couples, most the guys I know hear the same thing from their wives.

Anyway, last night at maybe 6pm she says to me, next one of us who goes to the basement should bring up a roll of paper towels (they are on a shelf leading to the basement). So, about 7:30 I’m heading down to the basement with a load of laundry, and as I’m walking down, I grab a roll of paper towles and roll them across the kitchen floor to where she’s standing.

She says, thanks, but I already got one (we had one in a paper bag from a recent picnic we went to)...she said she just grabbed it because she figured I’d forget. It made me think how often am I getting in trouble for all the forgetting she thinks I was gonna do. To me, THAT sounded like a country song.

My state is blue, and my heart is too.

It didn’t take me an hour to come up with that. Really.

It’s me, baby

this has to be a song that meets your needs, David Allan Coe, “You Never Called Me By My Name”. Strangely, a genuine red neck bigot…from the great mid-western state of ohio.

Sing about the sad sad day when you had to order a coke instead of a beer because the bar was out.

avalmez's avatar

in the south you would have beeen asked, “What kind of coke? Sprite, root beer, etc?” :)

A joke:

What do you get if you play a country record backwards?

You get your wife back, you get your kids back, you get your dog back, you get your job back.

How about a song about Johnny Cash?
