Lyrics

Big Wylene

Written By: Phillip Matthis

It was late Friday night at the local waterin’ hole
I was sittin’ on a barstool not botherin’ a soul
When suddenly out of nowhere something blocked out the neon lights
And standing there in front of me was the ugliest sight

(Chorus)
She was three hundred pounds of lovin’, uglier than a fart in church
Wore a big green machine John Deere T-shirt
She had more rolls than a bakery and she had hair where no hair should be
She was Big Wylene and she had her eyes set on me.

Well she took me on the dance floor, shook me to and fro’
People passed by just like tree limbs during a tornado
Just when I thought the worst was over she flung me over her head
And said before this night is over you’ll end up in my bed.

Chorus

I did the only thing any normal man would do
I broke and ran for the door to leave that saloon
But, man for a big girl, ol’ Wylene could fly
She jumped across the hood of my truck and punched me in the eye

Chorus

What happened next really rocked my world
I woke up butt naked layin’ in bed next to her
She said I’ll bet this is a night that you’ll never forget
Then smiled at me with all three teeth and lit a cigarette

Chorus

Oh yeah she was Big Wylene and she had her eyes set on me.

Harnett County Heartbreaker

(Chorus)
Harnett County Heartbreaker
You sure know how to break a man’s soul
Harnett County Heartbreaker
I never thought you’d be so cold
Your pretty blue eyes and black flowing curls hid the devil in disguise
I believed all your lies and you took me for a ride
Now all I can do is sit and cry.

Chorus

You told me that you loved me and then you ran away
Back into the arms of someone else
You never cared about me were the hurtful words you said
Those are words that I never will forget

Chorus

I’ll never love another woman in this world
The wounds you’ve cut will bleed until I’m gone
I’ll especially stay away from those Harnett County girls
They’ll tell you that they love you and then they’ll do you wrong
Harnett County Heartbreaker
I never thought you’d be so cold
Harnett County Heartbreaker
You sure know how to break a man’s soul
I never thought you’d be so cold

Clear Run Bridge

Written By: Phillip Matthis

“Clear Run Bridge”
Down at Clear Run Bridge on a Saturday night
They pull out the chairs and turn on the lights
Folks start to gather as the sun fades out of sight
That old country store starts to come to life
(Chorus)
With the banjoes, fiddles, and mandolins
Others will join as they come in
It won’t cost you a dime to have a good time
Down at Clear Run Bridge
Amos can’t play but he sure loves to sing
Michael can play it, if it’s got any strings
Holler out the title if you wanna hear a song
If you don’t know the words then you can hum along
Chorus
There’s laughing, clapping, dancing. You can listen or you can talk
There’s an outhouse around the corner if you get nature’s call
You can make new friends or talk with one’s you know
I tell you friends there’s no place that I’d rather go….than
Down to Clear Run Bridge on a Saturday night
They pull out the chairs and turn on the lights
Folks start to gather as the sun fades out of sight
That old country store starts to come to life
With the banjoes, fiddles, and mandolins
Others will join as they come in
It won’t cost you a dime to have a good time
Down at Clear Run Bridge
It won’t cost you a dime to have a good time
Down at Clear Run Bridge
