Sonny Curtis performs "Good Ol' Girls"

Sonny Curtis (born May 9, 1937) is an American singer and songwriter. Most of his work falls into the pop and country genres. He was a teenage friend and band member with Buddy Holly in Lubbock, Texas.

Curtis was born in Meadow, Texas, United States. He played on some of Buddy Holly's earlier 1956 Decca sessions, including the minor hit 'Blue Days Black Nights' and a song he wrote, 'Rock Around With Ollie Vee'. In 1955 and 1956 he, along with Buddy Holly, opened concerts for rising new star Elvis Presley. Although he had gone on the road with other musicians by the time Buddy Holly put together the Crickets in 1957, Curtis joined the Crickets after Holly's death in 1959, and soon took over the lead vocalist role in addition to lead guitar. As the credits show, he was part of the band for the 1960 album In Style with the Crickets for which they recorded the original versions of two of Curtis's best known songs, "I Fought the Law" and "More Than I Can Say" (co-written with drummer Jerry Allison). Along with Cricket Jerry Allison he participated in Eddie Cochran's last recording sessions, including the song 'Three Steps to Heaven'. In 1964 he released the single "A Beatle I Want to Be". He has continued to record and perform intermittently as part of the band over six decades, most recently in their album The Crickets and their Buddies (2004), where they reprised most of their hits with help from many noted fellow musicians. Curtis did leave the band several times to pursue his solo career but even during those periods made occasional guest appearances, in performance and on record, with the Crickets. His song "The Real Buddy Holly Story" was written in response to the inaccuracies in the movie The Buddy Holly Story.

Sonny Curtis Good Ol' Girls Lyrics

 

Saturday night, a smoke-filled bar,

Waylon and a long-neck beer,

The place is a jumpin' with good ol' boys

And guess what brought 'um in here

They all love Waylon, they all love beer,

They love to give the dance floor a whirl,

But there wouldn't be one single good ol' boy

If it wasn't for the good ol' girls.

 

Good ol' girls by the dozen,

Good ol' girls you just love 'um

There wouldn't be one single good ol' boy

If it wasn't for the good ol' girls.

 

You can bet them boys ain't sittin' there drinkin',

 

Just to pass away the time,

And the pinball players and the eight-ball shooters

Got another game on their mind,

It's a simple game just take a look,

It's the same all over the world,

No, there wouldn't be one single good ol' boy

If it wasn't for the good ol' girls.

 

Good ol' girls by the dozen,

Good ol' girls you just love 'um

There wouldn't be one single good ol' boy

If it wasn't for the good ol' girls.

 

You can look into their faces

And just about read their minds

Good ol' boys hate being alone

When it comes to closin' time.

They live for the night life, cold beer,

And a good ol' country song,

But there's just one thing that keeps them out runnin'

Instead of stayin' home.  And that's

 

Good ol' girls by the dozen,

Good ol' girls you just love 'um

There wouldn't be one single good ol' boy

If it wasn't for the good ol' girls.

 

Good ol' girls by the dozen,

Good ol' girls you just love 'um

There wouldn't be one single good ol' boy

If it wasn't for the good ol' girls.

 

Naw, there wouldn't be one single good ol' boy

If it wasn't for the good ol' girls.
