Rhandie from 37879Long story cut off who this song was written for didn"t want Billy to sing it then it doesn"t ever get sung or recorded. Rhandie from 37879Rhandie Lee Parker wrote this song in a matter of minutes in the early morning hours, I was 22 or 23 years old when I wrote this , I"ve never received any response of this song ever being recorded. It was the true meaning of this song with every lyric I wrote that night as with many other lyrics that love doesn"t matter to any of the artists that sung any of the songs I wrote or co-wrote. That among many reasons is what will be the dismise of trust in-between man-kind and any love songs that are written when those who sing them don"t comprehend what is and what isn"t. It"s people just like these various artists that Americans could never trust each other when trust is supposed to be earned not granted. Trust isn"t what Jon pardi will ever achieve from anybody anywhere, with zero trust Jon pardi may justice take its toll with you. Why didn"t you use every lyric of this song? Rip me off you have more beef with me than you could ever imagine. You should go ahead and contact the real writer of this song quick, be a man have it be face to face. see more comments
