Kent’s Songs A-Z – George Cue

This week’s song is George Cue. Here’s the MP3:

One of the great things about songwriting is that you can write tributes to people you like (and, actually, even people you don’t like for that matter, but that’s for another day). I’ve written quite a few songs as a tribute to people or places that have meant something to me. George Cue is a man from my hometown who taught me a lot of good life lessons when I was a kid. He taught me to drive a tractor long before I could drive a car. He let me ride in the combine with him when I was little and taught me more than I wanted to know about farm work when I was older.

When people think about George they think about what a good guy he is- what a good neighbor he makes.

The song is another “done me wrong song,” but with a twist. In the story, the singer’s girlfriend has left a broken life in the big city to return and build a good, simple life in the small town where she was born. She decides to go be a good neighbor to the people she has known all her life- to be a good neighbor just like George Cue.
