about

We wrote this at Tresa's place, north of Hendersonville back in 1996. One or two sessions . . . I think it was just one though . . . I remember it coming pretty easily . . . it was her title, we worked the lyric together as I put music to it. This was a lot of fun to write, and it was the only song that we wrote together. Interesting Story: Tresa once wrote a bluegrass song that her friend Bill Munroe was going to record . . . she even had the joy of hearing him sing it backstage at the Grand Ole Opry with some other huge bluegrass stars jamming along . . . he was going to record it on his next album, and then . . . he passed away before recording another album!

lyrics

I'LL LET THE JUKEBOX DO MY TALKIN'

Friday night is here again, and I'm not hard to find
I'm back in this honky-tonk, and there's a reason why
She'll be here before too long, I hope she'll look for me
Tonight I'll tell her how I feel, and I won't have to speak

I'll let the jukebox do my talkin'
and by George I'll win her heart
I'll pick A-5, "Check Yes or No"
- That's a real good place to start
I'm too shy to tell her
that I feel this way
So I'll put money in the slot
and let the music play
I'll let the jukebox do my talkin'

Met her here two months ago, now we dance all the time
But when I try to ask her out, all I can do is smile
My heart pounds inside my chest whenever we get close
Tonight I think I've found a way I can let her know

I'll let the jukebox do my talkin'
and by George I'll win her heart
I'll pick A-5, "Check Yes or No"
- That's a real good place to start
I'm too shy to tell her
that I feel this way
So I'll put money in the slot
and let the music play
I'll let the jukebox do my talkin'

I'll let the jukebox do my talkin'
and by George I'll win her heart
I'll pick A-5, "Check Yes or No"
- That's a real good place to start
I'm too shy to tell her
that I feel this way
So I'll put money in the slot
and let the music play
I'll let the jukebox do my talkin'

I'll let the jukebox do my talkin'
