Words and Music

This song is pretty sad, but I did it kind of tongue in cheek. If you really hate it let me know.

Once upon a time many years ago, I was sitting on my bed writing this song...crying when my girl friend came in...she asked...why you crying...I told her...I just wrote this stupid Country Christmas song...I played it for her..and then we were both crying.
I never really let this song go out before, because I thought it's a little on the dark side...but I've had some folk tell me they like I guess beauty is still in the eye of the.....listener?


1. Hello Darling, How Ya Doin'
Yes it's me and I know it's late on Christmas Eve.
And Yes I had a few down at Joe's
But baby please don't hang up there's a few things I need to know.

2. Like how's Johnny and Adam and my sweet Dee Dee
Are the things I got em, under the tree,
and when they ask, Why isn't daddy here?
Are you gonna tell them, he did a bad thing this year,

He did a bad thing this year and now it's come clear,
and spend my nights, drowning in my own tears,
Ya know it didn't mean a thing, cause it''s your love I miss,
Darlin' ya think that maybe, I can come home for Christmas,

3. Thanks again, I guess I can sleep now and I promise that
tomorrow, I won't let you down,
They say bad boys get nothing for Christmas,
and I know it's true, cause I ain't had a thing,
since I lost you.
