Ultimate Playlist #350: Amarillo By Morning

I ain’t got a dime but what I’ve got is mine

I ain’t rich, but lord, I’m free

I don’t know anything about rodeos that I haven’t learned from country songs and movies. There’s a bittersweet quality to these songs, about men who give up their money and wives to chase a dream that always ends up breaking them to pieces.

  1. This classic goes way back, and it is still as good today as it was when it first came out. A song of men who give up everything they love to chase their dreams of rodeo glory. They chase and chase and then they finally realize to themselves that it really cost them what is the most important thing in life; the ones we love. They learn this lesson to late. Good song about a familiar country music theme. Nobody can pull it off like the one and only King George. By the way, I looked this song up, it is rated as King George’s best song out of ALL of his hits. Great selection Egg
