Somebody knows how to tell a good story in song! Add to that a very catchy hook and this song's a winner all around. And did I mention the very fun instrumentation? Crystal clear vocals? All the elements of a great country song are here.

    - Kate Carpenter

Great feel and mild arrangement that's not too complicated. When the snare drum kicks in with the full backing vocals - it works very well. I found myself really liking the "bobby, why'd you do it" quite a bit. I bet this is a crowd fave1

    - Monday Funeral

Bobby, Why'd You Do It
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker

Bobby's at the river, Bobby's on the run
Bobby took a women out, just to have a little fun
And she said, "Bobby, come to dinner, I want you to meet my mom
About nine months later she said, "Bobby, looky got a son

Bobby must have been drinking, Bobby must have been stoned
Bobby had to be something, just to see that girl alone
And she said, Bobby, won't you call me, come on over, tomorrow, today
Old Bobby took to running, now he's living on a beach in old Bombay

Bobby why'd you do it
Has it really been so long
Bobby, why'd you do it
You had to know we'd put you down in song
We use to call him sluffrich, he use to kiss and tell
He use to be a friend with whom you could go out and raise some hell
But now he's hiding in a laboratory, that old woman's going to hunt him down
He loves her so dearly; he won't even come back to town

--Solo Verse Break--

Bobby changed his image, Bobby changed his home
Bobby moved to L.A., just a keeping that winnna honed
He's in the big time...T.V. most every night
And he's bored with the good life and old Curly Top's looking alright

-Repeat Chorus-
