There seemed to be a lot of C&W crossovers in late '65 - early '66, and
this one by the Statler Brothers was the biggest of the bunch (#4). --AWR
"Flowers On The Wall"
(Lew DeWitt)
Verse 1:
[C]I keep hearin' you're concerned ab[Am]out my happiness
But [D7]all that thought you've given me is c[G]onscience I guess
If I w[C]ere walkin' in your shoes, I [Am]wouldn't worry none
While y[D7]ou and your friends are worryin' 'bout me, I'm h[G]avin' lots
of fun
Countin' f[Am]lowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
Playin' solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin' c[F]igarettes and watchin' "Captain Kangaroo"
Now don't tell [G]me
I[F]'ve nothin' to d[G]o
Verse 2:
Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town
As long as I can dream it's hard to slow this swinger down
So please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doin' fine
You can always find me here and havin' quite a time
(repeat chorus)
Verse 3:
It's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
Anyway, my eyes are not accustomed to this light
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete
(repeat chorus)
D[F]on't tell [G]me
I[F]'ve nothin' to d[G]o
[G] [C]
