Best divorce song ever...

OK, my vote is for Kenny Rogers 'The Gambler'. The chorus is so true.

You gotta know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run

You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done.

Tammy Wynette (I think)

Awr D.I.V.O.R.C.E becomes final today....

Of course! Can't believe I haven't already got that on my Spotify 'Country' playlist. Added it now, plus George Jones and Tammy Wynette 'Golden Ring'

I have a joke smile

What happens to a country and western bloke when he sings backwards?

He gets his farm, his wife, his kids and his dog back smile smile

I recognise that's a bit sexist but it does make me titter. And yes, I do like country and western music smile

James Taylor, Used to Be her Town Too:

But now he's gone and life goes on, nothing lasts forever, oh no.
She gets the house and the garden, he gets the boys in the band.
Some of them his friends, some of them her friends, some of them understand.
Lord knows that this is just a small town city, yes, and everyone can see you fall.
It's got nothing to do with pity, I just wanted to give you a call...

Billy Connolly's D I V O R C E is the best. It's a parody of Tammy Wynette's version. It contains the best line ever in a song;
'Both my wife and my wee scabby dog will soon be hauled away'.
