From the recording You Couldn't Care Less

I owe the inspiration for writing this song to Gary Taylor, a great Houston songwriter! I have no idea how I came up with the weird modulation in this song & the odd bridge. Musically the most complex song I've written.
I had envisioned the song as a textbook Louisiana swamp rocker but Delbert McClinton's band gave it, what feels like to me, a Tom Petty spin on swamp rock. 


You Couldn’t Care Less     
Wade the widest swamp I’d be your alligator bait
Kiss a hundred water moccasin snakes
Yeah, that’s what I’d do, if it led me back to you
If it meant a glimpse of your Louisiana smile
I would make mad love to a wild crocodile
Maybe yes baby I’m a little obsessed... but you couldn’t care less
No you couldn’t care less if I loved you any much more
You couldn't care less no you couldn't give a damn
Louisiana woman stop messing with your Mississippi man
Passed ev'ry one of your tests but you couldn't care less
Midnight late crossing Lake Ponchartrain
Backed up traffic in the driving rain
You ripped off our wedding ring, said it didn't mean a thing
I'd swim upstream thru that Mississippi mud
In the heat of a summer's hurricane flood
Maybe yes baby let me take a wild guess... you couldn’t care less

Pressed my gun between your breasts
I'll love you honey til your dying breath 
Stop fogging up my windows gasping for air
Woman I just don't care
Tonight I couldn’t care less, no I couldn’t care less
Tonight I couldn’t care less if you loved me any much more
You know I couldn’t care less, no I couldn’t care less
No I couldn’t care less if you loved me any much more
