lyrics

SHELBY
If you go n see Shelby tonight
Won't you tell her that I’m workin on a brand new bike
If you go n see Shelby tonight
Won't you tell her that I sure like the way she writes

And when she comes down off that stage
And she’s all done singin like a bird
Won’t you put in a word for me
If you go n see Shelby

If you go n see Shelby tonight
Won't you tell her that I’d be there if I only could
But I get a little bit shy around Shelby
Cuz I don’t know the words as well as I should

But the ones I know are stuck like swift arrows in me
Make me feel like I’m swimmin in some glassy sea
You might mention that casually
If you go n see Shelby

Won't you tell her that I write songs too
And I’ve got a tattoo of Gram Parsons on my arm
And I’m strong and silent and tall and she oughtta give me a call
What could be the harm

If you go n see Shelby tonight
Tell her that I really dug her set at Bumbershoot
And If you go n see Shelby tonight
You might as well tell her that I think she’s really cute

And when something feels this right it can’t be wrong
I might even be able to help her write a happy song
So won't you put in a good word for me
If you go n see Shelby
