  • I need to hear a melody
    That's sad with three part harmony
    A bar room jukebox symphony
    I need to hear a melody

    I need to hear a song that's blue enough
    to break a heart in two
    After what you put me through
    I need to hear a song that's blue

    Yeah make it lonely
    When you do it
    And I'll know somebody else out there's been through it
    Instead of hurting by myself
    Man I'll just sing along
    I need to hear a loser crying
    Songs about a love that's dying
    Lyin' cheatin' to the bone
    Three chord stone cold country song

    I need to hear a drinking tune
    Cowboys howling at the moon
    In some swingin' ol' saloon
    I need to hear a drinking tune

    Yeah make it lonely
    When you do it
    And I'll know somebody else out there's been through it
    Instead of hurting by myself
    Man I'll just sing along

    I need to hear a loser crying
    Songs about a love that's dying
    Lyin' cheatin' to the bone
    Three chord stone cold country song

    Yeah country song
    Three chord stone cold country song Writer/s: BOB DI PIERO, MELVERN RIVERS II RUTHERFORD, TOBY KEITH
