Inspired by Hank Locklin's "Please Help Me, I'm Fallen", a country hit of some regard.
This is a 'last set' re-lyric of the song and there is a slightly "rougher" version for party bands.
I cannot sing. I hear music correctly, but I can't get it out correctly. So, I'm not 'tone deaf', but 'tone inaudible' instead. Flat, I think. One night while celebrating my 65th birthday (39Z) at a local bar. I was certainly tipsy, but did not have to drive. My better half encouraged me to do the Karaoke thing. It was a country western bar my friends had selected, so I pick this Hank Locklin song. It was short and twangy and I was loose enough to think I could pull it off to the satisfaction of a drunken crowd.
The emcee said he had the song. I threw down a quick shot of schnapps and grabbed the microphone. The music started, but there no words on the screen. I turned and asked, "What do I do?" Calm... he had seen this before... he said, "Wing it or walk, old man." Made me mad, so I decided to wing it. He restarted the music. My wife has often said I was quick with a rhyme....and so it was. I could not remember much but the first line of the actual song, so this re-lyric is what the alcohol supplied my rhyming talent. Luckily, some friends recorded the song on their phones or whatever. By the way, the 40 -50 women in the room, married and single, were hootin' and hollerin' at the "satisfy you" part. I won hands down. Ain't it great to be alive?
