Friday – Country Music lyrics – Sept. 12, 2008

I’m a huge country music fan. In college, I started a hardcore country music show Dirt Roads & Honkytonks at WUOG, the college radio station at the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs!

I thought I’d post some country music lyrics once a week for everyone’s pleasure.

First up, Two Dollar Toy by Stoney Edwards.

One brief aside re: digital media. Why doesn’t Amazon have Stoney Edwards available in their MP3 downloads? Repeat after me all you media execs, backlist, backlist, backlist.

TWO DOLLAR TOY by Stoney Edwards

Last night a two dollar toy made a million dollar daddy out of me

Last night I woke up like I done many times before
But this time I had evil on my mind
I quietly packed my clothes and headed for the door
But in the hallway stumbled and fell over a toy

My little girl says daddy cover me
And daddy please don’t go
That’s when the love in my heart
Overruled the thought I had in my mind
Last night a two dollar toy made a million dollar daddy out of me

[ steel ] I’d felt a two feet tall as I walked by down the hall
Put my clothes back on the rack where they belong
I lit a smoke and I thought what a fool I almost was
And how a two dollar toy made a million dollar daddy out of me
Last night a two dollar toy made a million dollar daddy out of me
