Is My Life Just A Country And Western Song

Sometimes I get to wonderin after something I thought was right went wrong,
Is this really my life I’m livin or is this some country and western song?

Like the night I know I went to bed with a Venice de Milo, I really had quite a find,
And in morning I was lookin at some hag without arms,
Guess tequila can really play with your mind.

Why do things go like they do, when I try so hard just to get along?
Is this really my life I’m livin or is this some country and western song?

I remember that beauty that said she would love forever and she’d always be my honey,
Guess she thought it would take a lot longer for her to be able to spend all my money.

Yes, I can’t help but think when the radios playin and I’m singin along,
Is this really my life I’m livin or is this some country and western song?

I mean, as I listen I always relate to those sad tales on the radio, that I hear,
It makes me want to go out and drown my sorrows,
Just like the singers, in tubs whisky and beer.

Seems like there is always someone lyin or cheatin,
And I’m like them, feelin like somebody done me wrong,
Is this really my life I’m livin or is this some country and western song?

Can’t count the times I’ve heard that some days are diamonds and others are coal,
I’m tellin you, I am ready for some diamond days, cuz these coal days are gettin old.

Yes, it has me wondering if things are tellin me that I really no longer belong.
But, is this really my life I’m livin or is this some country and western song?

  1. I think, I `ve got an idea, what is going on in your mind with this poem. And I certainly hope, those feelings of yours have gone now and you will get plenty of diamond days in your future! Leena

  2. Things are fine here. I just decided to write a dark poem. Now the next test will be to learn to play the guitar and turn it into a hit C&W song.

    Thanks for dropping in. Your presence has been missed.
