A Happy Country Song

A Happy Country Song

My mother came to visit
Just the other day
As we were sipping coffee
She looked at me and said

Chorus:
Why can’t you write
A happy country song
One where people fall in love
And always get along
Because that’s just not the way
Most things turned out for me
People write about what they know
And all I know is misery

My mother called my sister
And told her what I said
My sister wrote me a letter
And this is how it read

Chorus:
Why can’t you write
A happy country song
One where people fall in love
And always get along
Because that’s just not the way
Most things turned out for me
People write about what they know
And all I know is misery

My wife picked up the letter
To see what my sister wrote
When she finished she looked at me
And she said I’ve just got to know

Chorus:
Why can’t you write
A happy country song
One where people fall in love
And always get along
Because that’s just not the way
Most things turned out for me
People write about what they know
And all I know is misery

People write about what they know
And all I know is misery
