Lone Don’t Mean Lonesome

“Lone don’t mean Lonesome, Lonesome don’t mean Lone…  I just really like to know my song stands on its own.  I like to sing ‘em all ‘lone sometimes you know – just to make sure!  If my song isn’t getting well, band doctors cannot cure.  When you play it center stage alone, the flaws sure come to light, I run and tinker just once more…  Until folks feel it right!  I thank the folks who listened…  At this Lone Jubilee!  Reminding me I sing for them, I don’t sing songs for me!  I’ll play ‘em better with my band…  When I’m not on my own, Lone don’t mean Lonesome, Lonesome don’t mean Lone…” Michael Martin Murphey, with apologies to the band.

Michael Martin Murphey is one of the main influences on my career.  He is among America’s best songwriters.” Lyle Lovett
