Thinkin too hard...

... about A Table Away

     I always love a country song that tells a story, but every once in a while it takes me a few times to pick up all the little details, those tiny clues that give the story even more depth.  Sunny Sweeny's single really had me until I started thinking a little too hard about the lyrics.
     The first couple of times I heard the song I felt really bad for the girl who is singing.  She's sitting just a few feet away when she sees her man with another chick!  After a time or two, though, I started listening a little closer.  First of all, she recognizes the other woman as her lover's WIFE, from the wedding ring she's wearing.  That means that she's all angry at this guy for staying with the woman he's married to instead of running of with her.  Hmmm... Let's look a little more.
     If this guy and his wife are having a romantic dinner, there's not much chance that the singer/narrator was invited out to join them.  It seems too much of a coincidence to think that the narrator made a reservation for one at the local French restaurant, only to discover to her dismay that her lover and his wife were also having dinner there.  Nope.  Here's what happened.  She followed him around to see what he was doing that night and, sure enough, that led her to a table just a few feet away from them in the restaurant. 
     It's still a fun one to listen to, but I'm not nearly as sympathetic as I used to be when this one plays.  If you ask me, that guy should just stay with his wife and try to make up for the fact that he's been getting too close to the kind of girl that cheats AND spies.  I don't know, maybe i'm just...

I like the way you think!!
I like the way you think (shows your raisin'), but hey, lyrics are lyrics. I honestly don't think Ronnie Dunn has ever done the "Boot Scootin' Boogie" either :) Maybe Kix but definitely not Ronnie...but I still ABSOLUTELY love Sunny's new song.....I love her voice...that's what "COUNTRY" sounds like...I predict stardom in her future.....I request it all the time......It's a new favorite!!!! Thanks for letting me share my opinion!!
