Song: Humiliation Compost Heap

(Track 8/10 Nothing) Like many songwriters, when I’m playing for others, people ask, “Do you know [some song] by [some popular artist]?” This song was a spontaneous reaction to one such incident.

this rock and roll and country might work
if i don’t have to listen to those jerks
singin this one done somebody wrong
that why i had to write this song
this rock and roll and country might work

so pull your carriage do-si-do
the devil’s down in georgia, no
i’m pullin into texas, tennessee
my girl picked a fine time to leave
the whiskey and the killer bee
i forgot the part bout killin me

this rock and roll and country might stand
if only you were my own biggest fan
but i don’t play the slide guitar
or drive a 1960s car
this rock and roll and country might stand

chorus

this rock and roll and country might be
the silliest game you’ll ever see
i’ll sing and you’ll all miss the point
while everybody passes the joint
this rock and roll and country might be
