Bob Wills For Supper (Larry W Jones 9/19/2018) (song #7327)

I grew up in Conroe by the Gladstell sawmill
In the country that I remember so well still
My daddy brought home the bacon but not much dough
We heard Bob Wills on radio KMCO

Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day
His Texas Playboys had good western swing to play
Daddy loved their music, I recall those airwaves
Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day

(Instrumental)

We had a big Crosley powered by vacuum tubes
The red manual dial we tuned by an AM loop
Daddy had a guitar and tried to learn to play
Along with Bob Wills and his Playboys every day

Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day
His Texas Playboys had good western swing to play
Daddy loved their music, I recall those airwaves
Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day

Momma was a lady who has us boys to keep
She worked hard to provide a place to eat and sleep
My Daddy and my Momma lived simple country ways
Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day

Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day
His Texas Playboys had good western swing to play
Daddy loved their music, I recall those airwaves
Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Thanks metalfoot. Actually, the radio was an AM-band General Electric console. Couldn't afford a Crosley.

I found this title irresistible. I love the specificity of this.
