Don't Swim in Public Pools

Timothy Birdnow

I dreamed up this little ditty this morning. Thought it would be fun to post. I think I hit about every point needed for a good country western song.

Don't Swim in Public Pools

by Timothy Birdnow

When I was a little boy
my daddy never brung me any toys
but I sat there plenty with him at the bar
all alone or with his pals
and a bunch of flashy made up gals
and I still remember the words he spoke to me

Son don't swim in public pools
or go to breaking all the rules
you don't want to end up bein' just like me
waste your time in sleazy bars
a drink and smoke those cheap cigars
and keep those skanks from sittin' on your knee

Pretty soon I became a man
and took to sittin' on my can
in honky tonks near Houston or Abileen
drinkin' whiskey without ice
playin' cards and shootin' dice
I forgot those words my daddy said to me

Son don't swim in public pools
or go to breaking all the rules
you don't want to end up bein' just like me
waste your time in sleazy bars
a drink and smoke those cheap cigars
and keep those skanks from sittin' on your knee

I remember one particular night
with a lady, my she looked a fright
But I was high on booze from Kentucky
she robbed me when it all was done
I remember starin' down the barrel of a gun
but I was way too drunk for me to see

Son don't swim in public pools
or go to breaking all the rules
you don't want to end up bein' just like me
waste your time in sleazy bars
a drink and smoke those cheap cigars
and keep those skanks from sittin' on your knee

I won another playin' poker strip
she give me nasty pickle drip
I spent six months chewin penicillin
I know that she was more than willin'
but the burn just wasn't worth the thrillin
nor the cold sore now upon my lip

Son don't swim in public pools
or go to breaking all the rules
you don't want to end up bein' just like me
waste your time in sleazy bars
a drink and smoke those cheap cigars
and keep those skanks from sittin' on your knee

When I met Janie I fell real hard
but she maxxed out my credit card
and left by taking my dog from out the yard
she'd asked me if I was a cop
when we first met, I shoudla stopped
But son I never drew that lucky card

Son don't swim in public pools
or go to breaking all the rules
you don't want to end up bein' just like me
waste your time in sleazy bars
a drink and smoke those cheap cigars
and keep those skanks from sittin' on your knee

Now I'm getting long in years
I still pound down those Lone Star beers
I still get down with the honky tonkin' scene
I got five kids who call me dad
on greeting cards
it make me sad
I sometimes think how different it could've been

Son don't swim in public pools
or go to breaking all the rules
you don't want to end up bein' just like me
waste your time in sleazy bars
a drink and smoke those cheap cigars
and keep those skanks from sittin' on your knee

Now the flag it barely flies
all the ladies laugh at it's small size
and I ain't won a round of poker for a year
my daddy never played the fool he said son take care of all your tools
but at this rate I'll wind up like a steer

Son don't swim in public pools
or go to breaking all the rules
you don't want to end up bein' just like me
drunk and broke and awful whoozie
chasin' all those nasty floozies
It just ain't worth it son now don't you see

Son don't swim in public pools
or go to breaking all the rules
you don't want to end up bein' just like me
there ain't no luck in a pickup truck
with a girl who only wants to buck
you just don't want to end up being me

1 Great! You got a tune to go with this? I think it needs a steel guitar player.

2 I have one in my head Dana, but as I don't know how to read or write music I cannot translate it for anyone.

I wanted to add a line about steel guitars too but it was getting too long.
