​Just A Country Boy

This song is by Showaddywaddy and appears on the album Crepes & Drapes (1979).

I had a very old friend
Who never knew about me
He never knew
But he gave me everything I need
A way of life that shows in everything I say and do
He gave me enough to sing the blues
Just a country boy from Memphis Tennessee
No one could have known what fate meant him to be
Became a voice that could ring with every feeling ever known
But no words could tell just what he meant to me

Oh I was only ten years old
But it seems like yesterday
When I first heard him on the radio
And his music made me dance all night
And his sad songs made me cry
I'll always feel the same way 'til I die

And his music made me dance all night
And his sad songs made me cry
I'll always feel the same way 'til I die

I was one of the crowd who worshipped him
I was one of the crowd who told him he was king
I was one of the crowd he had to prove himself to time and time again
And no mortal man could ever stand the strain

Oh I was only ten years old
But it seems like yesterday
When I first heard him on the radio
And his music made me dance all night
And his sad songs made me cry
I'll always feel the same way 'til I die
I'll always feel the same way 'til I die
I'll always feel the same way 'til I die
I'll always feel the same way 'til I die
