Some Of My Best Friends Are Songs

People will move...they'll pass on, look around one day they're gone
leaving you to make it on your own
folks tell me that it's risky, to be alone with whiskey
but I never have to drink alone

'cause some of my best friends are songs
They donít mind if I sing along
they love me for better or worse
rich or poor, right or wrong
some of my best friends are songs


though a man needs things near him, he must watch who he lets in
dogs will die, women run away
and I've long since discovered, after your dogs n lovers
you still have old records you can play

now some of my best friends are songs
they donít mind if I sing along
they love me for better or worse
rich or poor, right or wrong
some of my best friends are songs


songs I wish would never end
that squeeze life from ev'ry minute
songs by long forgotten men
who learned the ground's the limit


midnight walk down rainy streets, no women...no one to meet
I duck into a dark saloon
though I've been feeling lonely, I ainít drinking and I'm only
here to spin a few Keith Whitley tunes

cos some of my best friends are songs
life is short but the nights are long
they love me for better or worse
rich or poor, right or wrong
some of my best friends are songs

some of my best friends are songs
some of my best friends are songs

Couch,

Bingo!

Loved it--top notch. This is a great example song for "newbies" wanting to improve their songwriting that demonstrates well crafted yet simple lyrics for listener relating, strong melodic chorus hook, descriptive verses that create a story/picture, fabulous transitional melody bridge digression for change-up, and nice touch with the uplifting music for outro tag.

I would say this even without the professional production--the professional production and performance are icing on the cake.

Thanks, Eddie. This has always been a favorite of mine. It's one of the best tunes I've ever been involved with. Al did a great job as always. In fact, I think he did the demo in one night. I woke up and the mp3 was in my email.

He's an absolute pro.
