Friday Plot Swap: Musical Style

Friday Plot Swap

Dawn's Plot Swap
Have a plot? Leave one
Need a plot ? Take one 
Old Country Style
No matter if you like country music or not, you have to admit they know how to tell a story.  Here are three country songs that have always sparked my imagination. 
Yeah, the stage was set when the lights went out, there was death in Tuscon town. Two shadows ran for the bar back door and one stayed on the ground. 
Both belonging to another But longing to be lovers.
Promising each other that the night will only know
Parked on some old backstreet.They laid down in the backseat
And fell into the fire down below.But they would pay for their deceiving for a deadly web was weaving.Why they picked that spot that evening Lord, the night will only know. Well within the innuendos just outside the steamy windows, the night was shattered by a woman's scream. Motionless and frightened, the grip of fate had tightened And with trembling hands they wiped away the steam

Seven Spanish Angels (Willie Nelson and Ray Charles) 

She reached down and picked the gun up that laying smoking in his hand. She said, "Father, please forgive me, but I can't live without my man." And she knew the gun was empty and she knew she couldn't win.

I know there are many, many more. 
So, swap with me.
What is your favorite story-telling song (country or not)?

My favorite story song is "Little Hands" by Duncan Sheik. The whole song is great, but I like this line, "Oh well, can't blame a guy for tryin'."

Interesting song. I like the "I'll let it go, but I'll never say never."

He's not bad to look at while you are listening, either! :)

:) I consistently put this song on my writing mixes, but then I find myself listening to it and singing along. :)

He is an attractive guy. ^__^

"Sometime Around Midnight" by The Airborne Toxic Event. I got it as a free iTunes song @ Starbucks. So haunting. :)

I love Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" so much that I'm determined to write a scene to it. One of these days.
