Would You Catch A Falling Star

Album: I Just Came Home To Count The Memories (1982)
  • You know the crowd was very small for a country music show
    But he faked a curtain call just like it was years ago
    And then a lady grabbed his arm as he staggered down the aisle
    And with all his country charm he addressed her with a smile.

    Would you catch a fallen star before he crashes to the ground
    Don't you know how people are nobody loves you when you're down
    Pick me up and take me home and I'll bring my old guitar
    Sing a golden oldie song if you'll catch a fallen star.
    [ steel ]
    He had a silver plated bus and a million country fans
    Now there's just a few of us and he drives a little van
    And they were beatin' down his door the lovely women left and right
    And now he's on a hardwood floor a wonderin' where he'll spend the night

    Would you catch a fallen star before he crashes to the ground
    Don't you know how people are nobody loves you when you're down
    Pick me up and take me home and I'll bring my old guitar
    Sing a golden oldie song if you'll catch a fallen star
    Sing a golden country song if you'll catch a fallen star. Writer/s: BOBBY BRADDOCK
