Population Me
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


This place will tell you lies
With each passing shadow that goes by
But there's only one or two, at most just three
More likely none that I still believe

They'll say you're not alone
But don't listen to them
Tell that very long I did then find out through misery
That the true population's me
I used to look for days around
But no trace of her love could be found
I'd holler, cry out, beg and scream
Throw myself down, then start to plead

Searched for her heart 'til mine would bleed
Offered it up but there wasn't any need
Too late to care, she's no longer here
The population's me

I used to look for days around
But no trace of her love could be found
I'd holler, cry out, beg and scream
Throw myself down, then start to plead

Searched for her heart 'til mine would bleed
Offered it up but there wasn't any need
Too late to care, she's no longer here
The population's me

This place will tell you lies
With each passing shadow that goes by
But there's only one or two, at most just three
More likely none that I still believe

This place will tell you lies
With each passing shadow
That goes by
But there's only one or two
At most just three
More likely none
That I still believe

They'll say you're not alone
But don't listen to them
Tell that very long
I did then find out
Through misery
That the true population's me

I used to look for days around
But no trace of her love
Could be found
I'd holler, cry out, beg,
And scream
Throw myself down,
Then start to plead
Searched for her heart,
Til mine would bleed
Offered it up,
But there wasn't any need
Too late to care
She's no longer here
The population's me

I used to look for days around
But no trace of her love
Could be found
I'd holler, cry out, beg, and
Scream
Throw myself down,
Then start to plead
Searched for her heart,
Til mine would bleed
Offered it up,
But there wasn't any need
Too late to care

She's no longer here
The population's me

This place will tell you lies
With each passing shadow
That goes by
But there's only one or two
At most just three
More likely none

Yoakam has written & recorded more than a few masterpieces, but this is total genius. Great arrangement & production by Pete Anderson too. Dig the trumpet solo.

Lucky B

The Master's masterpiece as far as I'm concerned! ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

jennifer dolson

That lonesome moan and banjo blow me away...and the lyrics touch the depths of my soul

Dzidra Veveris-Åkeson Veveris-Åkeson

An absolute Masterpiece by the best of C&W, Rock and Blues of today

Ditto!

Chris Boutelle

Arrangement is amazing. So many instruments to tickle the senses.

Ken Brennan

Unbelievable how good this is! Close your eyes while listening and it feels like your'e being taken back to the 1930s and the great depression. Dwight is a genius and head and shoulders above any of the modern era.

Diana Davis

What a song! That trumpet solo.....Wow!

John Lawrence

Diana Davis touch of the Kurt Weill, yes?
