Junior Brown - I Hung It Up

Image from the Wik, baby
I can't believe that I've been posting country music each week for 6 years and never put up a song my Junior Brown.  If you haven't run across him, you're in for a treat.  He invented his own special guitar, with an electric 6 string on the top and a slide 6 string on the bottom.  He is nothing short of a virtuoso and his music never really hit the big time, but never fails to make my toes tap.

The lady playing the acoustic guitar in the video is the talented and dishy Mrs. Brown.



I Hung It Up (Songwriter: ?)
I used to drink I used to smoke
I used to be a troublemaker and it ain’t no joke
I hung it up I hung it up
Yeah, Well I hung it up baby, cause I’m getting hung up on you.

I got some telephone calls from a gal or two,
But I hung it up right up cause I want to talk to you, 
I hung it up I hung it up
Yeah, Well I hung up the telephone cause I’m getting hung up on you.

Well I cut out your picture from your high school book
And I hung it on the wall so I can always take a look
I hung it up I hung it up
I hung up your picture cause I’m getting hung up on you.

I took out my car for a Sunday drive
But I ran it through a fence watching you walk by
I hung it up I hung it up
Now I hung up the car cause I’m getting hung up on you.

I went fishin’ in the river but I snagged my line.
It got hung up on a stump cause you were on my mind.
I hung it up I hung it up
I hung it up baby cause I’m getting hung up on you.

Junior's got attitude. He got arrested here in Charlotte back in the 90's for refusing to turn his amp down.

I still pine for a Junior Brown full of old Ernest Tubb songs.
