De vader van Pam Tillis was een nog grotere countrystar dan de dochter. Mel Tillis maakte in de jaren ’60, ’70 en ’80 zo’n achtendertig albums en zestig singles waarvan er zes op #1 eindigden. In 1979 had hij zijn voorlaatste #1-hit met dit Coca Cola Cowboy.  In 2007 werd hij door dochter Pam Tillis voorgesteld als lid van de Country Music Hall Of Fame. En vorig jaar kreeg hij van president Obama de National Medal Of Arts. Op 8 augustus wordt Mel 81 jaar. We hebben van deze goeie oldie een leuk filmpje met heel wat bekenden.

Songtekst :

I called collect on the phone
You say you’re tired and alone
But it sounds like someone else is lying there
She said don’t call me no more
Don’t you knock on my door
Its too late now, and I know you’ll never change
She said….

(Chorus)
Youre just a Coca Cola cowboy
You got an Eastwood smile, and Robert Redford hair
But you walked across my heart like it was Texas
And you taught me how to say I just don’t care

She said just leave me alone
And let me hang up this phone
Cause he’ll see me cry, and think I still love you
Please don’t call me no more
I changed the locks on my door
Its time you understood that we are through
She said….

Youre just a Coca Cola cowboy
You got an Eastwood smile, and Robert Redford hair
But you walked across my heart like it was Texas
And you taught me how to say I just don’t care

Guitar solo

She said…
Youre just a Coca Cola cowboy
You got an Eastwood smile, and Robert Redford hair
But you walked across my heart like it was Texas
And you taught me how to say I just don’t care

Yes she taght me how to say I just don’t care
