No wonder his dog left him

So I was listening to the country station the other day in the truck. (Perhaps it’s driving a pickup truck? *g* No, not really.) I actually listen to many different types of music—current favorite CD: Ten Thousand Fists by Disturbed.

But country’s my “go to” music. I think country song writers are wonderful storytellers, and many of the songs—even the tragic ones—are like mini-romances, too. (“She Didn’t Have Time” by Terri Clark—total romantic short story.) And most off all, country keeps it real.

So I’m driving down the road when a Brad Paisley song I hadn’t heard came on. It got to the chorus and I swear I almost drove off the shoulder. I looked at my son and said, “Did he just say what I think he said?”

‘Cause I’d like to see you
Out in the moonlight
I’d like to kiss you
Way back in the sticks
I’d like to walk you
Through a field of wildflowers
And I’d like to check you for ticks

There is such a thing as too real, I guess.

Dude, not so sexy.

    :lmao: I heard this song a few weeks ago and nearly wet myself. I was trying to tell Josh about it but I couldn’t do the lyrics…um..justice.

    Oh my dear God. I’d say that’s something you’d never find in a romance novel, except there was one that featured chiggers I’ve never been able to burn out of my brain…:rofl:

    Brad Paisley’s hilarious like that. It’s like his fishin’ song. “Oh I’m gonna miss her, when she’s gone…oh lookey there, another bite”

    PS: I’ll have you know that Terri Clark is Canadian. Yeah, she is! :cheer: – have you heard her new song Dirty Girl? Another perfect song for romantic erotica or whatever the heck it’s called now. LOL

    I know Brad Paisley’s having fun with the fishing and mud on the tires and all, but this cracked me up.

    OK That’s funny as hell. I have that album by Disturbed. Love it.
