Del Reeves - Listen To My Song lyrics

Alright gang I've wrote this smash hit ha ha ha it's not so funny

Let's all sing together it's got to be pretty let's go

Listen to my song well listen to my song

(Tell me if you'd like it play I'll change it if it's wrong

Listen to my music Goerge see if it's alright

If it's not what you've had in mind I'll write you one tonight)

Well I wrote a little song a few moths ago

My friends all said that thing oughta go

So I packed my bags and I hit for Nashville town

Well I wanted to get me a big star to do it

So I made me a list with a few names through it

And I started out to see if Eddy Arnold was in town

Well I come in a home way back in the den

I can tell he was glad when I walked in

Cause he broken the singin' Make The World Go Away

He finally listen the part of my song

And then with a drawl of two two miles long

He said see Ernest Tubb ha ha he lives just across the way

Listen to my song...

Well I'd see ol' Ern he was Walking The Floor

Cause just as records were sellin' lower

But he put me on a take and listened to every word

He said I've been singin' since I was a kid

And nothin' sounds like that song did

Ah throw him out Billy Byrd

Well I quit myself got back on my feet

I saw Johnny Cash up in down the street

And I asked him if he can use a hit or two

He said I made mon on a Ring Of Fire

Size Luther king playin' on his guitar

So I don't care of the doo-di-dood-di

I called Bill Anderson and he was at home

But he said my Mama Sang A Song

I'm sorry but I hope that you understand

I saw Ralph Emery and I talked to him

Along ol' Tex Ritter and WSM

But they was too busy shakin' one another's hands

Folly I decided that the only way

A stranger in Nashville can make a little hay

Is just to turn a record himself with that Nashville sound

So I borrowed me some money and that's what I did

Everybody tells me I've got a hit

At least it's bubblin' under about one hundred ha ha

And follows Alabama at the bus station

Listen to my song...
