DEAR HARLAN HOWARD (Red Simpson / Don Bowman) Don Bowman - 1965 Dear Harlan Howard, will you write me a hit Don't you know that I could sing the fire right out of it You've written songs for every star in Nashville, Tennessee So how's about it, Harlan, would you write a hit for me Now, I can come to Nashville if you'll just send me the fare Boy, if me and you get together, aw we'll tear 'em up down there I loved Heartaches By The Number and Busted impressed me so much I painted your name in big red letters 'cross the side of my pick-up truck Boy the way you write and the way I sing, no tellin' how far we could go Be smokin' cigars and drivin' big cars, probably be on the Jimmy Dean show Dear Harlan Howard, will you write me a hit Don't you know that I could sing the fire right out of it You've written songs for every star in Nashville, Tennessee So how's about it, Harlan, would you write a hit for me Now, wouldn't wancha you to be ashamed of me when you show me 'round Nashville So I got a few things down at Monkey Wards and said just send ol' Harlan the bill Bought me a bright green cowboy shirt and a pair of leopard skin boots And you won't believe them rhinestones that Mother sewed on my suits I met Roger Miller a l'il while back and sang him a song or two He said you just write ol' Harlan, he said it was the least he could do He said he owed you somethin', Harlan, so he's sendin' me, ain't that a blast You write 'em and I'll sing 'em, I got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see, see Boy I wish you'd-a give that song to me instead of Buck Owens (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2011)
