PATTY McBRIDE
Precious Patty McBride had nothin` to hide
Her magical songs just poured out from inside
For one to see her is for one to love her
And to go to ya`ll`s friends and say

She`s a star and she shines
Lord knows why – godlike and divine
For we all want to love her
And we all want to be near her
As if you too could shine

Lately her press has been a mess
They tell of bad taxes, drug habits and wine
Did you hear her own mother would not even love her
Yet her fans write letters that say

Oh, you`re a star and you shine
Lord knows why – godlike and divine
For we all want to love her
And we all want to be near her
As if we too could shine

Back in Tennessee her old boyfriend reads
About her new lover toned, tanned and perfect teeth
Well, that old boyfriends mother says “Hey, how`s Pat”
With shame he turns to say

Oh momma, she`s a star and she shines
Lord knows why – godlike and divine
For I wanted to love her
And I wanted to be near her
As if I too could shine
