    Actually George Strait was really good after 1980.

    Clint Black and Lyle Lovett's first albums were also good.

    So I am 98.763% correct.

    Clint Black - Better Man

    Clint Black - Better Man (1989)



    What do you say when it's over?
    I don't know if I should say anything at all
    One day we're rollin' in the clover
    Next thing, you know, we take the fall

    Still, I think about the years since I first met you
    And the way it might have been without you here
    I don't know if words from me can still upset you
    But I've just gotta make this memory stand clear

    I know I'm leavin' here a better man
    For knowin' you this way
    Things I couldn't do before now I think I can
    And I'm leavin' here a better man

    I guess, I always knew I couldn't hold you
    But I'd never be the one to set you free
    Just like some old nursery rhyme your Mama told you
    You still believe in some old, 'Meant to be'

    Still, I'm leavin' here a better man
    For knowin' you this way
    Things I couldn't do before now I think I can
    And I'm leavin' here a better man

    Yes, I'm leavin' here a better man
    For knowin' you this way
    Things I couldn't do before now I know I can
    And I'm leavin' here a better man
    (Ooo ooo ooo)
    Yes, I'm leavin' here a better man

    Lyle Lovett - If I Had a Boat

    Lyle Lovett - If I Had a Boat (1987)



    "If I Had A Boat"

    If I had a boat
    I'd go out on the ocean
    And if I had a pony
    I'd ride him on my boat
    And we could all together
    Go out on the ocean
    Me upon my pony on my boat

    If I were Roy Rogers
    I'd sure enough be single
    I couldn't bring myself to marrying old Dale
    It'd just be me and trigger
    We'd go riding through them movies
    Then we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail

    And if I had a boat
    I'd go out on the ocean
    And if I had a pony
    I'd ride him on my boat
    And we could all together
    Go out on the ocean
    Me upon my pony on my boat

    The mystery masked man was smart
    He got himself a Tonto
    'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
    But Tonto he was smarter
    And one day said kemo sabe
    Kiss my ass I bought a boat
    I'm going out to sea

    And if I had a boat
    I'd go out on the ocean
    And if I had a pony
    I'd ride him on my boat
    And we could all together
    Go out on the ocean
    Me upon my pony on my boat

    And if I were like lightning
    I wouldn't need no sneakers
    I'd come and go wherever I would please
    And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
    And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
    But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

    And if I had a boat
    I'd go out on the ocean
    And if I had a pony
    I'd ride him on my boat
    And we could all together
    Go out on the ocean
    Me upon my pony on my boat

    Pearl Jam - Better Man

    Pearl Jam - Better Man (1994)




    "Better Man"

    Waitin', watchin' the clock, it's four o'clock, it's got to stop
    Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech
    As he opens the door, she rolls over
    Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

    She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man
    She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man
    Can't find a better man
    Can't find a better man

    Talkin' to herself, there's no one else who needs to know
    She tells herself

    Memories back when she was bold and strong
    And waiting for the world to come along
    Swears she knew him, now she swears he's gone

    She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man
    She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man

    She lies and says she still loves him, can't find a better man
    She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man
    Can't find a better man
    Can't find a better man

    She loved him, she don't want to leave this way
    She feeds him, that's why she'll be back again

    Can't find a better man
    Can't find a better man
    Can't find a better man
    Can't find a better man

    This song reminds me of my freshman and sophomore years in high school in Katy, Tx. I worked all four years at my next door neighbor's commercial AC compressor repair shop. But I only rode with him every morning to work during the summer during the first two years. He knew my mom and dad and was a white haired guy with a big belly. He was soft spoken and always listened to country music. He almost never talked. And when the commercials came on, he would reach over and turn down the volume knob to where you could barely hear it. But he would turn back up when the music played. Even today, I still turn down the volume down when the commercials come on.

    George Strait - Amarillo By Morning

    George Strait - Amarillo By Morning (1982)



    "Amarillo By Morning"

    Amarillo by morning, up from San Antone
    Everything that I've got is just what I've got on
    When that sun is high in that Texas sky
    I'll be bucking at the county fair
    Amarillo by morning, Amarillo I'll be there

    They took my saddle in Houston, broke my leg in Santa Fe
    Lost my wife and a girlfriend somewhere along the way
    Well I'll be looking for eight when they pull that gate
    And I hope that judge ain't blind
    Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's on my mind

    Amarillo by morning, up from San Antone
    Everything that I've got is just what I've got on
    I ain't got a dime, but what I got is mine
    I ain't rich, but Lord I'm free
    Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's where I'll be
    Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's where I'll be

    Song of the South...it's not about Einstein's field equations, the existence of Bigfoot, or peace in the Middle East. It's about sweet potato pie. Which is awesome.

    Alabama speaks for you, does it not?

    Alabama - Song of the South

    Alabama - Song of the South (1989)



    "Song Of The South"

    Song, song of the south
    Sweet potato pie, and I shut my mouth
    Gone, gone with the wind
    There ain't nobody looking back again

    Cotton on roadside, cotton in the ditch
    We all picked the cotton but we never got rich
    Daddy was a veteran, a southern democrat
    They oughta get a rich man to vote like that singing

    Song, song of the south
    Sweet potato pie, and I shut my mouth
    Gone, gone with the wind
    There ain't nobody looking back again

    Well somebody told us Wall Street fell
    But we were so poor that we couldn't tell
    The cotton was short, and the weeds was' tall
    But Mr. Roosevelt's a'gonna save us all

    Well momma got sick, and daddy got down
    The county got the farm, and we moved to town
    Poppa got a job with the TVA
    We bought a washing machine, and then a Chevrolet

    Singing
    Song, song of the south
    Sweet potato pie, and I shut my mouth
    Gone, gone with the wind
    There ain't nobody looking back again ...
