I Wish I Was This Smart - Country Haiku

HaikuIf you’ve been secretly hoping that someone would create a weird little Web site featuring nothing but country songs rendered as haiku, wish no longer. We’ve found it for you!

Click here to see the lyrics and themes of hit country songs from the past and present boiled down to their essence, haiku style. Here are a few of our favorites.

(thanks to Phylis Stark for turning us on to this)

• Rain is a good thing
Until it destroys Nashville
Then it kinda sucks

• The house that built me
Was bought up, flipped and resold
Now in foreclosure

• If you want to hear
One more “old man’s advice” song
Well, ain’t you crazy?

• You want a band name
That beats “The Long Road to Love?”
You just keep praying

• There ain’t nothing like
A Sonia Dada cover
To say “I’m country”

• Uh uh uh uh uh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
Uh uh undo it

• Sometimes I wonder
On this Highway 20 ride
Should I move closer?
