"Meg White" as written by and Raycharles Jack Lamontagne....
Meg White
You're alright
In fact, I think you?re pretty swell
Can't you tell?

Meg White
Such a pretty thing
I saw your face on the cover
Of a magazine

Some day (some day)
I'd like (I?d like)
To take a walk with you
Maybe ride our bikes down by the sea side

Meg White
I saw you on the big screen
Oh, Jack was king, but you stole the scene

Meg White
Baby, you're the bomb
Oh, Jack is great don?t get me wrong
But this is your song

Some day (some day)
I'd like (I'd like)
To take a walk with you
Talk about most anything you'd like to talk about
And watch the sun going down
Going down

Playin' those drums is hard to do
It's true
And nobody plays them quite like you do

Meg White
You're alright
In fact, I think you're pretty swell
Can't you tell?

Meg White
Such a pretty thing
I saw your face on the cover of a magazine

Some day (some day)
I'd like (I'd like)
To take a walk with you
Maybe ride our bikes down by the sea side
And watch the sun going down
Going down

    General CommentIs there a backstory to this song? Cuz it seems like Ray has a bit of an affliction and the only medicine is a bit of Meg White lovin'.

    I can't believe how much more powerful the music is in Ray's new album. It's kept it's romantic feel, but it's certainly a new direction for him.

    General CommentYeah I think this one is pretty obvious. Meg White. It's all right there in the title.

    General CommentI totally agree about the power of Gossip in the Grain. It's like his voice got more...soul in it because it's pretty amazing. And it is, in fact, about Meg White, the singer from the White Stripes. I don't know if there's anything going on between them.

    General CommentIf you wikipedia 'Meg White', it says "Ray Lamontagne wrote a song for her, which is featured on his recently released third album, Gossip in the Grain. He wrote it for her because he has been attracted to her for a long time."

    It's Wiki though so you can't really trust it but that may be why.

    General CommentThis is the silliest song on the album, sorry to say, it sounds like some Meg White groupy wrote the song in hopes of courting her "you're the bomb" I never expect Ray to write that.

    General CommentIt is not about romantic feelings for Meg White. Meg White seriously struggles with being shy just like Ray Lam does. He respects her as a musician, all while he may think she is attractive. Ray Lamontagne loves Meg Whites talent and music. I believe he found someone who may be the equivalent of a shy, reclusive person as he is and is showing his reverence.

    My OpinionMeg is a Damsel in Distress, and Ray is idiosincratic enough to take on the role of her Knight in Shiny Armour* who doesn't give a flying rat's ass what everybody else thinks, he's gonna write this song for her and record it and put it in an album because, damn**!


    *(He's been growing the beard and all.)
    **(Also because, boobs! - consideration by me, not Ray Lamontagne.)
