Step Into the Light warns of the dangers of listening to too much country music.


Step Into the Light

Take that record off don't you know it’s dangerous...
Three chords and the truth will make a wreck of us.
When Hank sings with that lonesome sound,
Darkness falls when you put the needle down.

Step out into the light,
Only good can come of this.
And though there is beauty in the songs of sadness
Don't let it be all there is.
Those songs will mess you up,
You'll never have enough.
You'll forever be stuck in a minor key,
Out of love and out of luck.

Make sure Nancy plays only once in a very blue moon.
And Gillian breaks your heart when she sings an old time tune.
When Lyle sings the Family Reserve,
You'll get the misery you deserve!

Don’t you get lost with Lucinda on a gravel road.
Or go out with Josh dressed up like Nebraska.
Or hit the road with Ryan to Sweet Carolina.
Take the wrong turn to total disaster.
