Semi-True Stories

For those of you who know me, you know how much I love telling my stories...and equally as much, I love hearing other folks' stories. Not sure if it's the Irish in me, the Parrothead, or just the fact my family and friends enjoy telling stories. I have a pretty good memory for the details, but telling stories is a great way to keep the memories alive...even if the details sometimes change a little as time goes on. So here I will share a few of my stories. It'll be up to you to determine what are fictional facts and factual fictions. These are my Semi-True Stories...

Semi-True Stories
by Mac McAnally

With his head out the sunroof and his heart in the right place
Plan B was foolproof he drove off to her place
He yelled out his feelings among other stuff
It was too much tequila or not quite enough
It was too much tequila or not quite enough

It's a semi-true story believe it or not
I made up a few things and there's some I forgot
But the life and the telling are both real to me
And they all run together and turn out to be
A semi-true story

Well the picture is fuzzy and the details are sorted
It was on the same day that God's Own Drunk was recorded
A walking tall sheriff and a big cadillac
And me and golf shoes on the hood making tracks
This daring young singer was under attack

It's a semi-true story believe it or not
I made up a few things and there's some I forgot
But the life and the telling are both real to me
And they all run together and turn out to be
A semi-true story

Well the things that I've lived
And I've dreamed
And I've seen
And I've heard
You'll take the good with the bad
And be glad that every word

It's a semi-true story believe it or not
I made up a few things and there's some I forgot
But the life and the telling are both real to me
And they run like the rain all the way to the sea
