3. Lyle's mom used to be Mrs/Dr DemoTex's secretary in Houston.
In her Exxon, USA days. We never met Lyle. But as a former big-bander (bassist), I do like his tunes.

4. Lyle and Robert Earl...
Proof that good things CAN come out of Texas A & M.

I's teasing you, GOP. Chill out. You know we love you. :-)

6. Lyle? Love it.
The first time I heard the recording of "Joshua Judges Ruth", for me and my mate, it was sit straight up in the chair time and "WHO IS THIS?". Lovett was barely on my radar and I couldn't believe what I'd been missing. Instant fan x 2.

I am an admirer of the man.

8. Simple Song
one of my favorite songs is a Lyle Lovett song ... if you've never heard it, you should ... here are the lyrics:

Simple Song
(Lyle Lovett)

It's a simple song for simple feeling
You see the moon and watch it rise
Across the continent the night bird sings
And somewhere someone hears its cry

So disillusioned
Keep your head down
If you do they'll never know
You'll have no answers to their questions
And they will have to let you go

And disenfranchised
Revolution
They'll take away by right what's yours
And make you martyrs of your own cause
When they don't know what cause it's for

And all deserted
Stand alerted
They'll love you when you're all alone
But you find a red rose in the morning light
You wait the night and find it gone

So hear my words with faith and passion
For what I say to you is true
And when you find the one you might become
Remember part of me is you

11. Fellow Aggie alum Lyle Lovett ROCKS.
He's the best thing (along with John Sharp, a Democrat) that ever came out of Texas A&M.

13. I'd like to reconsider. Please. If it's not too late.
Given that true intellectual and
emotional compatibility
Are at the very least difficult
If not impossible to come by
We could always opt for the more
temporal gratification
Of sheer physical attraction
That wouldn't make you a shallow
person
Would it

If Ford is to Chevrolet
What Dodge is to Chrysler
What Corn Flakes are to Post Toasties
What the clear blue sky is to the deep
blue sea
What Hank Williams is to Neil
Armstrong
Can you doubt we were made for each
other

Look
I understand too little too late
I realize there are things you say
and do
You can never take back
But what would you be if you didn't
even try
So after a lot of thought
I'd like to reconsider
Please
If it's not too late
Make it a cheeseburger
