Story behind 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 :)
Lyrics
That Would Be Me © Fred Choate, Colleen Laylon, BMI, 2014 V1 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 Chorus 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 V2 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 Bridge 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
