Paycheck, Johnny - Fools Hall Of Fame Lyrics

As sure as the neon signs light up the city
Each night I know where she can be found
And to love like this my heart cries it's a pity
But I cry like a baby each time she's not around

I should be an example for the world to see
The perfect form of torment and shame
You should run and get a camera and take my picture
And hang me in The Fool's Hall of Fame

I'm like the child who craves the taste of candy
I yearn for love that's never around
You only step in my world if it's handy
Then you say goodbye and my world comes tumbling down

I should be an example for the world to see
The perfect form of torment and shame
You should run and get a camera and take my picture
And hang me in The Fool's Hall of Fame

    Don't like this photo - showing dear Johnny in cuffs. I know he was arrested at least twice and did time for his misgivings...

    What a great fiddle intro..

  13. Clancy Kobane

    no offense but george jones never stacked up to ol' paycheck. in my book.

    Diesel Doctor

    Paycheck my opinion and many others the best! The man had the most purest voice. Seeing him in a small tavern play one night, Mr Paycheck and his band sounded better live, then on the record. He was a very kind humble person that night. Take care! God Bless you

    Clancy Kobane

    @Diesel Doctor So glad you were able to see him then. He was something else. God bless you too!


    NIce!  thanks for posting ol' Donnie Young's music.

    Thanks for sharing Paycheck's music.  Love his singing & always have.  He is a real country singer, not like what is out there today.   Thanks, Joan

    I am also looking for the little darling album with "the real mister heartache" is that the one you have? If so I'd like to do a trade as well. I have a large George jones, lefty frizzell, Webb pierce and other classic country artist collection. Please Message me. Thank you.

  22. qkliang

    Wow. I love this.


    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you- I have the LP you are looking for... I can copy it to CD, perhaps we can work out a trade...

  24. Michael Winton

    KLUNKET...I have this album and would be happy to burn you a copy of it. I am also looking for one of his very early albums. It was from the "little darlin' years. I believe there is photo of Johnny on the front in a leather coat with the collar turned up. Let me know if you have it or know how I can get it.
