I am listening to KHYI, The Range and I have no idea who is singing this song, but the chorus goes like this:

“Though my eye sometimes wanders, it doesn’t mean that I will be untrue.

You’re not the best, but you’re the best that I can do.”

(And I have no idea how to give an Amazon Link)

    It’s “You’re Not the Best” by Charlie Robison. Here’s how I found it: with the sophistication of Google and the vast amount of material on the Internet, you can find just about any lyric/song/artist by putting the word “lyric” in the search box, followed by a representative sampling of the lyrics, preferably the chorus because it repeats. This led us to this page http://www.texastroubadours.com/crobisontab_yourenotthebest.htm and the rest is history.

  • Hey Chris thanks for the KHYI mention! I do a lot of work with that station in hopes of keeping it alive!

    And Eric, my darling slueth, good job on finding Texas Troubadours. That’s a great site for Texas music!

  • Thought you might find this of interest:


    One of the most beloved figures in popular music and culture has endorsed the populist presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich.

    STATEMENT FROM WILLIE NELSON “I am endorsing Dennis Kucinich for President because he stands up for heartland Americans who are too often overlooked and unheard. He has done that his whole political career. Big corporations are well-represented in Washington, but Dennis Kucinich is a rare Congressman of conscience and bravery who fights for the unrepresented, much like the late Senator Paul Wellstone. Dennis champions individual privacy, safe food laws and family farmers. A Kucinich Administration will put the interests of America’s family farmers, consumers and environment above the greed of industrial agribusiness.

    “I normally do not get too heavily involved in politics, but this is more about getting involved with America than with politics. I encourage people to learn more about Dennis Kucinich at http://www.kucinich.us and I will be doing all I can to raise his profile with voters. I plan to do concerts to benefit the campaign.”

    (This is an individual endorsement and does not reflect the views of any organization.)

    “It’s an honor,” commented Rep. Kucinich, “to earn the support of a man who has come to symbolize the best values of America.” ##

    “ON THE ROAD AGAIN”: With Willie Nelson’s endorsement, momentum continues to build for our insurgent campaign — as we increase our support base, our volunteer base, our endorsements and fundraising.

    RALPH NADER, on last night’s CNN Crossfire, said: “If Dennis Kucinich gets the nomination, it’ll be less reason to have a third-party challenge. He’s a very progressive Democrat…”

    Dare to dream. We can win this nomination. With so many candidates in the race, everyone is a long shot, not just us. To see why KUCINICH WILL DEFEAT BUSH, check out http://kucinich.us/electable.htm ##

    I find it odd this comment appeared here and not on the very recent post on the same subject. I feel Googled.

  • I have to check that out. I’ll bet a lot of people can relate to that lyric.
