"Don't Rock The Jukebox" as written by and Alan Eugene/stegall Jackson....
Don't rock the jukebox
I want to hear some Jones
'Cause my heart ain't ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don't feel like rockin'
Since my baby's gone
So don't rock the jukebox
Play me a country song

Before you drop that quarter
Keep one thing in mind
You got a heart-broke hillbilly
Standing here in line
I've been down and lonely
Ever since she left
Before you punch that number
Could I make one request

Don't rock the jukebox
I want to hear some Jones
'Cause my heart ain't ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don't feel like rockin'
Since my baby's gone
So don't rock the jukebox
Play me a country song

I ain't got nothin'
Against rock and roll
But when your heart's been broken
You need a song that's slow
There ain't nothin' like a steel guitar
To drown a memory
Before you spend your money baby
Play a song for me

Don't rock the jukebox
I want to hear some Jones
'Cause my heart ain't ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don't feel like rockin'
Since my baby's gone
So don't rock the jukebox
Play me a country song

Yeah, don't rock the jukebox
Play me a country song.

    General CommentCountry music is indeed the story of my life too. Some of my friends still do not see that, but oh well >.>

    General CommentI love this song because I won't settle for anything other then country music and that's what this song is asking for. He's saying, "Don't blast that annoyin' rock and whatever else you might desire, cause all I wanna hear is sum' good ole country music!"

    General CommentYeah lately I've been feeling this way, I pretty much just want to listen to country nowadays. Country isn't really the story of my life, but I find it is a very simple style of music, it makes me dream about living a much simpler life. While I ignored the style, I'm discovering that it's part of me. It reminds me of my childhood as my mother played it a lot back then, especially this song. I also learned that my late grandfather loved this style, so I feel that listening to the new generation of it brings me closer to him.

    My InterpretationIt's about a person who thinks that country music is the only music that can heal a broken heart. He fails to realize that sometimes people can be angry and bitter when their hearts are broken, so they need to listen to rock and roll to heal their broken hearts. He obviously isn't one of those people who gets bitter and angry when his heart is broken.
