"(We're Not) The Jet Set" as written by and Bobby Braddock....
By a fountain back in Rome I fell in love with you
In a small cafe in Athens You said you loved me too
And it was April in Paris when I first held you close to me
Rome, Georgia, Athens, Texas And Paris, Tennessee

No, we're not the jet set
We're the old Chevro-let set
There's no Riviera
In Festus, Missouri

And you won't find Onassis
In Mullinville, Kansas
No, we're not the jet set
We're the old Chevro-let set
But ain't we got love

No, We're not the jet set
We're the old Chevro-let set
Our steak and martinis
Is draft beer with weenies
Our Bach and Tchaikovsky
Is Haggard and Husky
No, we're not the jet set
We're the old Chevro-let set
But ain't we got love

No, We're not the jet set
We're the old Chevro-let set
The Prine and DeMent set
Ain't the flaming suzette set
Our Bach and Tchaikovsky
Is Haggard and Husky
We're the old Chevro-let set
But ain't we got love

    General CommentJohn Prine is the most clever songwriter in the world! If this doesn't make you chuckle, give you a warm feeling....well, not much will. Unpretentious, humble, real emotion drips from this man's words. If you haven't listened to this album (a delicious blend of duets with some of the best female singers around...Iris Dement, Emmylou Harris, Dolore Keane, others), you must give a listen. Titled "In Spite of Ourselves", many tender, yet humorous portrayals of real people's feelings!
