Lyrics: Have you ever heard raindrops wailin’ on an old tin roof
Or Haggard and Cash pourin’ out the simple truth
Do you think that a little bit of fiddle is never enough
Then buddy, you know exactly where I’m comin’ from

If it don’t twang, it aint my thang
If it don’t Hank, like the midnight train
Or cry like a steel
Bendin my ole heartstrings
If it don’t twang, it aint my thang
If it don’t swang, then I cant
Its gotta have soul or I don’t give a dang
If it don’t twang, it aint my thang

When I hear some backporch pickin’ on an old banjo
It makes me hungry for some country on my radio
And I’ve never heard a sweeter song in this whole wide world
Then a “hey ya’ll” rolling off the lips of a southern girl

Chorus
Solo
Chorus

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
