It would seem that while Tom & Janice were writing their "strong good ol' girl" song,
I was writing one, too... small world.
There are plenty of good-ol-boy songs.
So, a little balancing...

This one's a Country Boogie Blues Rock Shuffle

smile



GOOD OL' GIRL

she ain't one to sit idly by
while the good ol' boys talk trash
and she ain't sittin' shotgun
with her feet up on your dash
she slides in behind the wheel says "buckle up boy
'casue this girl's gonna show you fast"

she ain't one for daisy dukes
she wears wrangers with a crease
her boots aren't covered in rainbows and flowers
it's all scuffs, red clay and grease
her pony tail pulled through a mossy oak cap
a look that says "i do what i please"
   
   while good ol' boys
   party by the river
   she does her own thing
   so you'll have to forgive her
   she knows just who she is
   she's a good ol' girl
   fair warning this good ol' girl's
   gonna rule your world

if you're looking for dainty and fragile
forget about looking here
she ain't satin or crinoline and lace
it's all camo and vintage john deere
don't let her hear you say a word against willie
keep your hands off her fishing gear

she'll take carolina barbecue
any day over french cuisine
buddy save that rose for your mama
she's partial to jim beam
some think she's a nightmare
but she's living the dream
   
   while good ol' boys
   party by the river
   she does her own thing
   so you'll have to forgive her
   she knows just who she is
   she's a good ol' girl
   fair warning this good ol' girl's
   gonna rule your world

WOW, This is fantastic!
You have a wonderful way with words! "she ain't one for daisy dukes she wears wrangers with a crease
her boots aren't covered in rainbows and flowers
it's all scuffs, red clay and grease" You just gotta love lyrics like that!

Super groove, great vocal and lyrics all mix professionally then you throw is some very tasty guitar and you have a winner!

This is a winner!

Floyd,
Wow, maybe I missed other songs you played lead on, but the intro knocked me back to listen again; that and the fills throughout sound so good.
My favourite lines from an excellent write:

"it's all camo and vintage john deere
don't let her hear you say a word against willie
keep your hands off her fishing gear"

All the boxes are ticked - this is another corker of a tune, as they say where I`m from.

Robert

Hey Floyd ...

You one good old songwriter, too! But please, no pics of you in Daisy Dukes! Has a Travis Tritt vibe to it. First time, I think I've heard you play your own lead. You should do it more often! Still can't stop my foot from tapping and the song's been over for several minutes.

This has a thick layer of "really good" drenched all over it!

Bets to you & yours. Be safe ...

Alan

This is very, very, very good - which is par for the course from you :-) What makes this sound great, as opposed to "just" good, are the lyrics - at least in my view. Superb word painting. The arrangement and playing is great, the voice is wonderful as per usual - the lyrics make it fantastic. Well done.

Well, you had my attention just from reading the song description before I hit play: "Country Boogie Blues Rock Shuffle" wink
I thought, man, that would be like me doing a traditional country song eek

But you nailed it; Great song, great groove, fun and well written lyrics.

And, you have been holding out in the guitar department! I had no idea you could play electric leads. Nicely done, I especially like what you did for the intro.

Love your vocal in this one! Very strong, especially during the chorus.

Nice stops in the chorus!

Drums sound awesome too.

Yeah! Well done, floyd smile

Another stellar (or maybe Stella for this one, I know two Stella's, both Kuntry Gurls wink ) write, arrangement and performance. While that great guitar performance and tone draws well deserved attention, your care in handling the vocal dynamics is outstanding on this song and caught my ear. I really like this song and will be coming back to listen some more.

Hi Floyd,

A nice Boogie Woogie you made here!
You can feel Corona is comming to an end, or at least lets all hope it does.
Than there can be parties where the band plays this kind of moody songs.
I liked how you sing the chorusses. Bright and very relaxed!
A good song, Floyd!

Hans

What a cool backtrack Floyd. This one makes you want to get out of your chair. Loved the guitar tone. Real bite. Another super vocal and lyric. Well done...

A nice bluesy number with your usual panache. Enjoyed the lyric, the addition of your guitar, and the impassioned vocal performance.

An excellent addition to your catalogue.

Thanks, Robert. I played some fills on one of Janice & Bud's songs... But this is the first time I've played any extended leads on anything...

Lots of fantastic comments need to be bestowed on you for this extraordinary delivery.

This is absolutely full of Wow Factor

Knockout lyrics, and sensational vocal delivery.

"she ain't satin or crinoline and lace
it's all camo and vintage john deere"

How good is that!

FJ,
Very cool rocker!
Loved lyrics and phrasing on this. Delivery is super strong. Excellent write. Guitars worked really well, loud, but not over the edge. You probably had a blast recording this smile
Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Floyd,

Great vibe right out of the gate—foot-tapping, head-rocking. I think this is among your best vocals, e.g., the way you drag out “fast” in the last line of the first verse. All the stops are right on time. Great lyrics—paints a perfect picture of just who this “good ol’ girl” is. Top to bottom—stellar, stellar, stellar. Outstanding work!

My humble regards,

Deej

Just took another listen Wanted to say this reminded me of a B&D-type song with Kix on the lead vocal. Works for me! Now, waiting for your next great song ...
