about

Volume 3 of the Splintercat Series recorded with Colin J Nelson at Her Car Studios. This song was auto-biographically co-written with Liam Fitzgerald of The Rainieros. It's refreshing to hear a country song that actually happened, or within the process of writing, the song became a self-fulfilling prophecy. The women throughout this song have been obliquely generalized for the sake of good taste. People to graciously thank include (though not limited to):
Kirsten Ballweg
Amy Jo Kennedy
Johnny Mercury
Hal Columbo
Christina Petty
Brian Christianson
Betsy Balog
Steven Burnett
Paige (something)
I hope everyone enjoys this song as I have enjoyed making it. Thanks very much to Liam, Donnie, and Colin for the think tank that produced a permanent satisfaction.

lyrics

Liam: Your gal left with another man, my gal she ain't coming back
we're a couple of broken hearted, lonely men
Casey: I've been moping around so long, singing all those sad love songs, it's time I put my heart back on the mend
Liam: I wanna go out and meet some pretty ladies
Casey: I hear ya, I feel the same way too
Liam: I got a feeling we can kick this thing together
Casey: Them pretty ladies won't know what to do
Liam: (they won't)

Wingmen: I need a Wingman for the weekend
so I can feel like a man again
I'm on a bender I won't remember until this heartache ends
'cause times like these are really rough
but guys like us are pretty tough
I need a Wingman for the weekend and I'm counting on you my friend

Casey: Well I've been having a better time, staying out most every night, dancing with the ladies until 2
Liam: Things are so much better here. I danced a bunch and I drank some beer but don't you get to thinking that we're through
Casey: I wanna drink champagne until the sunrise
Liam: You know I hear ya, I feel the same way, too.
Casey: Let's meet some girls and give 'em all our best lines
Liam: I'm thinking that 's exactly what we'll do

Wingmen: I need a Wingman for the weekend
so I can feel like a man again
I'm on a bender I won't remember until this heartache ends
'cause times like these are really rough
but guys like us are pretty tough
I need a wingman for the weekend and I'm counting on you my friend
