Just my Thoughts

Brad Paisley

I admit I like a bargain. Most times that is what I think I get if I buy a Brad Paisley CD.

First, I can share the CD with my 16 year old who is not a big country fan. Paisley is a fantastic guitarist so Ben likes listening to him play.

Second, his CDs run the gamut. Some of his songs just hit you right in the gut. They make you stop and think but others are like buying tickets to a comedy show. I was listening to his newest CD this morning and had never heard the song “I’m Still A Guy.” This one is good so I have to share the lyrics.

When you see a deer
You see Bambi
And I see antlers up on the wall
When you see a lake
You think picnics
And I see a large mouth up under that log
You’re probably thinking that you’re gonna change me
In some ways well, maybe you might
Scrub me down dress me up
But no matter what
Remember I’m still a guyWhen you see a priceless French painting
I see a drunk naked girl
You think that riding a wild bull sounds crazy
And I’d like to give it a whirl
Love makes a man do some things he ain’t proud of
And in a weak moment I might walk your sissy dog
Hold your purse at the mall
But remember I’m still a guy

And I’ll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around
Knock some jerk to the ground
‘Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

I can hear you now talking to your friends
Saying yeah girls he’s come a long way
From dragging his knuckles and carrying a club
And building a fire in a cave
But when you say a backrub means only a backrub
Then you swat my hand when I try
Well now what can I say at the end of the day
Honey, I’m still a guy

And I’ll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around
Knock some jerk to the ground
‘Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

These days there’s dudes getting facials
Manicured waxed and botoxed
But with deep spray on tans and creamy lotioney hands
You can’t grip a tackle box
With all of these men lining up to get neutered
It’s hip now to be feminized I don’t highlight my hair
I’ve still got a pair
Yeah, honey I’m still a guy

My eyebrows ain’t plucked
Theres a gun in my truck
Thank God I’m still a guy

I am still laughing.
