"(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 Chevrolet set
There's no Riviera
In Festus, Missouri

And you won't find Onasis
In Mullinville, Kansas
No, we're not the jet set
We're the old Chevrolet set
But ain't we got love?

No we're not the jet set
We're the old Chevrolet set
Our steak and martinis
Is draft beer with weiners

Our Bach and Tchaikovsky
Is Haggard and Husky
No we're not the jet set
We're the old Chevrolet set
But ain't we got love?

No, we're not the jet set
We're the old Chevrolet set
The Jones and Wynette set
Ain't the flamin' suzette set

Our Bach and Tchaikovsky
Is Haggard n'

    General CommentThis songwriting is so brilliant. I absolutely love this song. It's sweet and funny. The John Prine / Iris Dement cover is great, too, but I love the original George Jones and Tammy Wynette version best.
