A Hookline And Some Tralala
(© by Ko-Do 3/2018)



what I like about those country songs
is the stories that they tell
of all the rights and all the wrongs
between heaven and hell
it's casual entertainment
and easy on the ears
for you and I
can identify
with what we hear

Chorus
no need for endless operas
just to tell the world some things
just a hook-line and some tralala
that everyone can sing

it's only three chords and the truth
like Harlan Howard said
it's mostly gentle, sometimes rude
and it may drive you mad
it's casual entertainment
and easy on the ears
for you and I
can identify
with what we hear

Chorus
