Story Behind The Song

This is an unabashed tribute song to one of my musical influences. To me, the best female singer ever. Thanks to Greg Lambert , he gets a SWA ( songwriting assist) on this one.

I.. sure loved your voice
Your down home charm and smile
You were the peoples choice
To bring country back in style

You were a songwriters best friend
You spun lyrics into gold
Every song was your own blend
Of your sweet brown eyed soul.


Oooh ooooh would you be my baby
Would you rock me on the water
For a long long time
Ooh ooh
Was I so crazy ...for loving you
Your simple dreams I think were gonna work out fine

I had to own your next release
I was a prisoner in disguise
When you came to Tennessee
I was willin' wait in line

A Southern California girl
The kind that guys would dream about
A thousand miles from my own world
Even when you came to town


I caught your show one autumn nite in Memphis
Andrew Gold was with you on the stage

You sang love me tender and dedicated it to Elvis
The room grew quiet
Like a ghost was in the place



Well played and well-written. The words work and convey the message.
