HIGH IN THE SADDLE

IT WAS MONDAY NIGHT AND I WAS WORKING LATE

THE RADIO WAS PLAYING OLDIES

I'D HEARD EVERY SONG A THOUSAND TIMES OR MORE

AND IT WAS STARTING TO ANNOY ME

I WENT FROM ONE END TO THE OTHER ON THAT DIAL

TRYING TO FIND SOME DIFFERENT MUSIC

I FOUND A STATION PLAYING COUNTRY HEART AND SOUL

SONGS I'D NEVER HEARD BEFORE

 

HIGH IN THE SADDLE ON THE RADIO FM BAND

HI IN THE SADDLE MADE ME A COUNTRY MUSIC FAN

 

IF IT WASN'T FOR THAT SHOW ON MONDAY NIGHT

I'D HAVE NEVER HEARD LUCINDA

OR DALE WATSON OR THE MIGHTY JUNIOR BROWN

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS MISSING

I LIKE THAT HAPPY TWANGIN HONKY TONKY SOUND

I LIKE TO LISTEN WHEN I'M DRIVING

THAT SLAPPIN BASS PUTS A SMILE ON MY FACE

THE PEDAL STEEL CAN START ME CRYIN

 

HI IN THE SADDLE ON THE RADIO FM BAND

HI IN TH SADDLE MADE ME A COUNTRY MUSIC FAN

 

HI IN THE SADDLE TRIPLE RRR'S COUNTRY MUSIC SHOW

HIGH IN THE SADDLE PUT THE COUNTRY IN MY RADIO
