about

Emilie loved this song and wanted to record it as a duo...with her taking the more male lyrics.....she says "I will listen when you talk, if you will cook what I have shot"....OK ... they are hillbillies after all...and Anthony loved to sing...referring to the wedding party and the pig... "stick an' apple in his mouth and shove a carrot way down south"... doesn't that keep the moisture in?

lyrics

Hillbilly Proposal©Jimbro Lutz 2015 New Normal Music, BMI, All rights reserved.

(D)I’ve been trouble…and I’ve been a lonely girl…
and I’ve been a stranger …and I’ve been a friend and
(A) you’ve broken many hearts ….but you stick when times are tough
(D) and you’ve got a pretty face …. And you know what you (A) want

I think I’m ready to….settle me down with you
If you think you’re ready to….love me like I want you to
love my crazy family too…. They remind me of you
and everything’s sunshine to you….and it rains when you want it to

(ch)(Em) I’ll dance when you want to go…. (C) I’ll dance fast and I’ll dance slow
(Am) You can love me when you want ….(B) If you take me to a restaurant

If you marry me in spring….you’ll get grannies diamond ring
we’ll catch a chicken in the yard….we’ll BBQ a wily hog
stuff an apple in his mouth …..shove a carrot way down south
we’ll have more friends than we know….and don’t you know that honey moon will glow….

Let’s grow a family tree…. water roots when they need
plant a garden every spring… grow our own in between
we’ll have all we need….we’ll get by when times are lean
babies look like you and me….(D) it will be our (A) destiny….

(ch)I’ll dance when you want to go…. I’ll dance fast and I’ll dance slow
I will listen when you talk…if you will cook what I have shot

(D)I’ve been trouble…and I’ve been a lonely girl…
and I’ve been a stranger …and I’ve been a friend and
(A) you’ve broken many hearts ….but you stick when times are tough
(D) and you’ve got a pretty face …. And you know what you (A)(G)(D) want.
