About the song
My cowriter came to me with this cute hook and clever song idea that allowed me to exercise a little funnier side of the muse :)
That Would Be Me
© Fred Choate, Colleen Laylon, BMI, 2014

I talked to the mirror, practiced all my lines
polished off two pots of coffee, and watched the sunrise
Grabbed my baby, we're takin' a ride
I aint' asked her yet, will she be my wife?

Pullin' in her parents drive, she still don’t have a clue
but I’m guessing, her daddy always knew....
another man....would love her one day too

That Would Be Me….That Would Be Me
I’m the stand up cowboy he never thought I'd be
Gonna shake his hand, and maybe then he'll see
If he wants someone to love her like he does…..
That Would Be Me

I met her mamma in the kitchen, heard her daddy outside
shooting down clay pigeons with Crazy Uncle Clyde
Lord I'm praying, that his aim is high
If I don't survive, kiss my baby goodbye

I whispered to her mamma, what I came here for
I want your daughters hand, then headed out the door
She pulled me back, said Son, " are you sure"?

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental Break

I said I’m here for your blessing…he reloaded his shotgun
pulled that rock from my pocket…he said
So you think you are the one?

Revised Chorus
That Would Be Me, That Would Be Me
I’m the stand up cowboy you never thought I'd be
Then I shook his hand, said, "I need you to see"
If you want someone to love her like you do…..
That Would Be Me
If you want someone to love her like you do…..
That Would Be Me, That Would Be Me
