"Amanda" as written by and Bob Mcdill....
I've held it all inward
God knows I've tried
But it's an awful awakening in a country boy's life
To look in the mirror in total surprise
At the hair on my shoulders and the age in my eyes

Amanda, light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife

It's a measure of people who don't understand
The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band
I got my first guitar when I was 14
Well, I finally made 40, still wearing jeans

    General Comment"It's a measure of people who don't understand

    What a great line and oh so true. I relate this line to all those people who say that country music is too twangy, too sad, too old-fashioned, and too backwards. Country music is real, is about life, and is the most honest and revealing genre of music that I've ever experienced. It's a shame that some people don't get to experience it. And, ol' Waylon is one of my favorites of all-time. There should definitely be a lot more of his songs on this site such as "Drinking and Dreaming," "Broken Promise Land," "I've Always Been Crazy," "It's Not Supposed to be That Way," etc. etc. etc. I mean, come on, these are classics!!!
