LISTEN TO MY SONG (Dick Miles) Del Reeves - 1967 SPOKEN: Alright gang, I've wrote'n a smash hit (Ha-ha-ha-ha) That's not so funny (Ha-ha) Let's all sing together It's got to be pretty, let's go... Listen to my song, well, listen to my song (Tell me) Oh, yes (If you like it played) (I'll change it if it's wrong) That's it (Listen to my music, George) Oh, sing it chidren (See if it's alright) It's a hit (If it's not what you had in mind) (I'll write you one tonight) I'll change it Well I wrote a little song a few months ago My friends all said that thing oughta go So I packed my bags and I headed for Nashville town Well I wanted to get me a big star to do it So I made me a list with a few names to it And I started out to see if Eddy Arnold was in town Well I found him at home, way back in the den I could tell he was glad when I walked in Cause he broke into singin' "Make The World Go Away" He finally listened to a part of my song And then with a drawl about two miles long He said, "See Ernest Tubb, heh-heh, he lives just across the way" Listen to my song, well, listen to my song, that's it (Tell me) Sing it children (If you like it played) (I'll change it if it's wrong) Oh, it's a smash hit (Listen to my music, George, see if it's alright) It's alright (If it's not what you had in mind, I'll write you one tonight) Well I seen ol' Ern, he was 'Walkin' The Floor' 'Cause Justin's records were sellin' more But he put me on the tape and listened to every word He said, "I've been singin' since I was a kid And nothin' sounds like that song did Ah, throw him out Billy Byrd" Well I collected myself and got back on my feet I saw Johnny Cash up and down the street And I asked him if he could use a hit or two He said, "I made mine on a 'Ring Of Fire' 'Side Luther can't play it on his guitar So I don't care if I doo-di-doo-di-doo" I called Bill Anderson and he was at home But he said, "My 'Mama Sang A Song' I'm sorry, but I hope that you understand" Then I saw Ralph Emery and I talked to him Along with Tex Ritter up at WSM But they was too busy shakin' one another's hands Finally I decided that the only way A stranger in Nashville can make a little hay Is just to cut a record himself with that Nashville sound So I borrowed me some money and that's what I did Everybody tells me I've got a hit At least it's bubblin' under the hot one hundred, ha-ha And Florence, Alabama at the bus station Listen to my song, well, listen to my song, that's it (Tell me) Oh, sing it chidren, let me hear ya (If you like it played, I'll change it if it's wrong) Oh, it's a smash...............FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2005)
