Patsy Cline on Writing

I got me a hit record and I ain’t never made a cent from it.

His hug is his beer in a frosted mug.

I don’t apologize that I don’t sing through my nose.

Sitting around the house playing the wife and mother is driving me crazy.

I thought I loved him but he’s dull.

I’ll die before I go all the way pop.

That applause don’t help you any when you’re laying in that bed at night being totally ignored.

I’ll screw the boots off of you.

I’ve become a captive of my own ambitions.

They said I would be the Hemingway of music. I would have my own style.

I got to change my firecracker!

Most lyrics don’t have any balls.

It’s like things are creeping on me and I just want to lay low.

I go to church on Sundays, the vows I make. I break them on Monday.

I don’t give a goddamn!

I’m gonna walk a little bit of dog.

      these are great–where did you find them?

      Cool stuff.

      But you “lie” in bed, not “lay.” Or you “lay” someone in bed (in all the meanings of that term).

      Cool, thanks, Eldo.  I’m sure Patsy is in her grave appreciating you correcting her grammar.

  5. Leapsloth14

      WTF Eld, don’t be a cube.

      Cube cubed:

      You also ‘lie low’, unless you “lay [something] low”.

      You also “ain’t ever” done something you’ve never done.

      You also “apologize [for] sing[ing]” or “[for not] sing[ing]”.

      And figures of speech!  –oh, you avoid figures of speech like you would avoid walking in the rain to calm the howling dog in your heart.

      I’m gonna walk a little bit of dog.

  8. MJ

      Once more, with feeling: I’m gonna walk a little bit of dog.
