Story Behind the Song

Michael Parker conceived this hook and story idea. Together, we rewrote and rewrote the lyrics. Took over 7 years (with long breaks in between) to believe the song was demo-worthy.

Lyrics

He tuned his old Gibson right next to the kitchen
Till he was called up to the mic
He said I finally got Jolene out of hock
And I wrote down this new song last night

Thank God for women who ain't
after money
For coffee and trusty old cars
Thank God for strangers with
stories worth tellin'
Holed up in old roadside bars
Thank God for Willy Johnny and
Waylon
Small stages and heavy tip jars
And for music and beer and
allaya here
And thank God for this pawnshop
guitar

He sang of his mother and two little brothers
And how they all wanted him home
Did his best to explain how you can't walk away
From a dream that won't leave you alone

T'ward the end of the tune I looked 'round the room
Just as some big biker yawned
But the rest of the crowd got up and got loud
And we all started singin' along

CHORUS

He hung out a few hours made a few dollars
Sold a few homemade CDs
Put a buck in the jukebox played "Luckenbach Texas"
And he left with me and Jolene, singin'

TAG
Thank God for women who ain't after money
For coffee and trusty old cars
And for music and beer and allaya here
And thank God for this pawnshop guitar
