Johnny Cash - If I Told You Who It Was lyrics

I was down in music city 'bout a week ago I wanted to see the brand old Loper show, so I held a cap and I headed down to Opryland They said they sold their last ticked the day before, so I kinda just hung around the backstage door and down the steps she came, men oh men My favourite female country star, she waved her fans and headed for her car Her tire, unlike her body, was very flat She said, could you change my tire I said your wish is my desire As she raised the lid, I grabbed her bomber jack She said I sure do appreciate you're changing my tire If I told you who it was, if I told you who it was You'd say I was making it up You've seen her on the screen and in country magazines You'd think I was making it up She said it was our little secret and my gully, Oh I'm gonna keep it Anyway you wouldn't believe it If I told you who it was She said you need a lift and I said well, you can drop me of at the York motel, so we headed down Briley parkway in the town I told her I got all your records ma'am, she smiled and said well I be damned She said, you're kind of cute fellar, wanna mess around? When we got to my room just the people lied I said sure wish I could've heard you sing tonight She smiled at me and said what do you wanna hear? Well if I was one of them country music folks I'll tell you, she'd sure get my vote for the best performance of the year If I told you who it was, if I told you who it was You'd say I was making it up You've seen her on the screen and in country magazines You'd think I was making it up She said it was our little secret and my gully, Oh I'm gonna keep it Anyway you wouldn't believe it If I told you who it was Well I tell you this much, when I put my arms around her and squeezed her real tight She looked up at me with those big beautiful eyes, took a deep breath in the side and said: "Howdy I'm just so proud to be here!" If I told you who it was, if I told you who it was You'd say I was making it up You've seen her on the screen and in country magazines You'd think I was making it up She said it was our little secret and my gully, Oh I'm gonna keep it Anyway you wouldn't believe it If I told you who it was
