*i don't like drinking songs. this definitely does NOT apply to uncouth drinking songs...
i heard this twangy tune a couple of hours ago, stuck on the hollywood freeway (170). at first, i thought it was a silly song about a break up, with an overly emotional girl and a love that grew cold. i was quite wrong. after looking a bit deeper, i realized that there was a heartbreaking story behind the simple lyrics. the chorus was written on a napkin, found crumpled up on the floor after a night of heartache.
if i were you, i would read the story, then listen to the song.
it makes it so much more powerful.
