Darrell Scott – The Country Boy

Eind deze maand komt het nieuwe album Long Ride Home van Darrell Scott uit.  De jeugdfoto van hem op de hoes vertelt waar het hier om draait. In 16 songs blikt hij terug op zijn leven. Het album werd speciaal opgedragen aan zijn moeder Evelyne die vorig jaar overleed. Het album was al klaar toen op 18 november ook nog eens vader Wayne omkwam bij een verkeersongeluk. U hoort hem hier meezingen in deze song.

Songtekst :

DID YOU EVER HAVE A NICKEL
AND WISH YOU HAD A DIME?
DID YOU EVER TRY TO SEARCH YOUR SOUL
BUT COULD NOT FIND YOUR MIND?

DID YOU EVER LAY YOUR BODY DOWN
WITH SOMEONE THAT DON’T LOVE YOU?
THE COUNTRY BOY HAS BEEN THERE
THAT’S WHAT MAKES HIM SING THE BLUES

IT’S NOT THE DRINKS YOU BOUGHT HIM
IT’S NOT THE TIPS YOU GAVE
FROM THE ROCKING OF HIS CRADLE
TO THE COVERING OF HIS GRAVE
YOU’LL NEVER KNOW THE LONELINESS AND SORROW HE GOES THROUGH
THE COUNTRY BOY HAS BEEN THERE
THAT’S WHAT MAKES HIM SING THE BLUES

WHEN HE SINGS ABOUT A LOVE GONE WRONG
THERE’S NO TEARS IN HIS EYES
BUT THE LONELY KNOWS HE’S CRYING OUT
ALL THE HURT HE FEELS INSIDE

HE ‘S SINGING TO THEIR BROKEN HEARTS
THAT’S ALL THAT’S LEFT TO DO
THE COUNTRY BOY HAS BEEN THERE
THAT’S WHAT MAKES HIM SING THE BLUES

IT’S NOT THE DRINKS YOU BOUGHT HIM
IT’S NOT THE TIPS YOU GAVE
FROM THE ROCKING OF HIS CRADLE
TO THE COVERING OF HIS GRAVE
YOU’LL NEVER KNOW THE LONELINESS AND SORROW HE GOES THROUGH
THE COUNTRY BOY HAS BEEN THERE
THAT’S WHAT MAKES HIM SING THE BLUES
