The Chair

Album: Greatest Hits (1987)
  • Well excuse me, but I think you've got my chair,
    No that one's not taken, I don't mind if you sit here,
    I'll be glad to share.

    Yea it's usually, packed here on Friday nights,
    Oh if you don't mind could I talk you out of a light?
    Well thank you, could I drink you a buy?
    Oh listen to me, what I mean is can I buy you a drink?
    Anything you please.

    Oh you're welcome, well I don't think I caught your name,
    Are you waiting for someone to meet you here?
    Well that makes two of us, glad you came.
    No I don't know the name of the band but they're good,
    Aren't they, would you like to dance?

    Yea I like this song too, it reminds me of you and me baby
    Do you think there's a chance?
    That later on, I could drive you home?
    No I don't mind at all,
    Oh I like you too and to tell you the truth
    That wasn't my chair after all.

    Oh I like you too and to tell you the truth
    That wasn't my chair after all. Writer/s: HANK COCHRAN, DEAN DILLON

  • Atl from Aztlán, MexicoVery nice song
  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaAm curious. does anyone know if George used his regular band on his recordings? if no who usually played fiddle on his LPs? and have to say this is an orgional idea for dating, in a way.
  • Steve from Tempe, AzWhile "The Chair" was a huge hit for George, follow up songs: The Table, The Lamp and The Recliner failed to achieve the same level of success. These were widely panned by fans and critics alike.
  • Jezebel from Lincoln, MoI know......who in the world is Garth Brooks .....George Strait is I'm sorry but ten times fold!!!
  • Lynn from El Paso, TxGeorge is the King! It's wonderful to hear even the new acts sing his praises at his contributions to make country music what is it today. He is a class act. He's the best!
  • Ken from Apopka, FlGeorge as of now, has 52 #1 hits!
  • Alicia from Stonefort, IlWhile I do love everything that George Strait has ever done, he doesn't have the most #1 hits. the actual holder of this title is Conway Twitty.
  • Zak from Austin, TxActually, George Strait's 51 #1 hits isn't just a Country Music record. He has more #1 hits than any artist in the history of music...period.
