lyrics

I like listening to Lucinda Williams,
but I always thought she was just being bleak,
didn't know anyone could hurt that bad,
until you made a country singer out of me.
Country singers are just bitchers and moaners,
the trick is making the pain sound sweet,
I didn't have much to say about heartbreak,
until you made a country singer out of me.
Sure, I drive an old truck around,
and I wear tight Wrangler jeans,
but I didn't know what sorrow was,
and the truck is Japanese.
I liked cowboy hats before I met you,
and clean white shirts and dirty jeans,
but I didn't like the twang of the strains of sadness
until you made a country singer out of me.
Sure, I drive...
Now there's a man here who wants to thank you,
for making me cry and stumble and sing,
he's a record company man and he's grateful,
you made a country singer out of me.
Sure, I write the songs and sing them,
but you are the reason I'm here,
I tried to give you all my love,
you gave me a career.
