Have you ever stopped to think what might be the greatest Country and Western songs of all time?
Many Country and Western songs have common themes, like your car breaking down, your wife or girlfriend leaving you and other crisis topics.
Then there are all the Country and Western songs about fishing, dogs, beer, drinking, getting drunk, getting arrested, waking up in jail etc.
Here’s a good list to get started on. I suspect most of these aren’t real songs though. Maybe they should be. Any good (or bad) lyricists out there?
