This is my all time favorite ...

When I Dream  -  Crystal Gayle

I could have a mansion that is higher than the trees
I could have all the gifts I want and never ask please
I could fly to Paris, oh, it's at my beck and call
Why do I go through life with nothing at all?
But when I dream, I dream of you
Maybe someday you will come true
I can be the singer or the clown in every room
I can even call someone to take me to the moon
I can put my makeup on and drive the men insane

*ahem*

There's a tear in my beer
Cause I'm cryin for you, dear
You are on my lonely mind
Into these last nine beers
I have shed a million tears
You are on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep drinkin'
Until I'm petrified
And then maybe, these tears will leave my eyes
There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm cryin' for you, dear
You are on my lonely mind

Last night I walked the floor
And the night before
You were on my lonely mind
It seems my life is through
And I'm so dog gone blue
You are on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep drinkin
Til I can't move a toe
And then maybe, my heart won't hurt me so
There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm crying for you, dear
You are on my lonely mind

Lord, I've tried and I've tried
But my tears, I can't hide
You are on my lonely mind
All these blues that I've found
Have really got me down
You are on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep drinkin
'Til I can't even think
'Cause in the last week, I ain't slept a week
There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm crying for you, dear
You are on my lonely mind

Songwriters: Hank Williams Sr.

I don't know if it's my favourite, but it's certainly iconic. It has all the tropes of a good country song.

Chris, I like that one and most of Hank's songs.  Here is my favorite:

I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
I'm so lonesome I could cry

I've never seen a night so long
When time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind a cloud
To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die?
Like me he's lost the will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry

Songwriters: Hank Williams / Sr.

Two of my many favorites by my favorite musician...he's all over the place musically, not to be categorized, but these are pretty country twangy sounding to me

Too Far Gone

When I woke up you were gone
And the sun was on the lawn
Empty pillow with perfume on
I smelled it

Well, we met in my favorite bar
Took a ride in my old car
But I still don't know how
We made it home

Was I too far gone
Too far gone
Too far gone
For you

We had drugs and we had booze
But we still had something to lose
And by dawn I wanted
To marry you

With our attitudes by day
And our secret dreams by night
Can we really live our lives
That way

Am I too far gone
Too far gone
Too far gone
For you

Was I too far gone
Too far gone
Too far gone
For you


On The Losing End

I went into town to see you yesterday but you were not home.
So I talked to some old friends for a while before I wandered off alone.

It's so hard for me now
But I'll make it somehow,
Though I know I'll never be the same.
Won't you ever change your ways,
It's so hard to make love pay
When you're on the losing end,
And I feel that way again.

Well, I miss you more than ever, since you've gone I can hardly maintain.
Things are different round here every night, my tears fall down like rain.

It's so hard for me now
But I'll make it somehow,
Though I know I'll never be the same.
Won't you ever change your ways,
It's so hard to make love pay
When you're on the losing end,
And I feel that way again.

 
We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
