For today’s SLS, Helen has asked us to consider ‘glass’. Thanks, Helen!

Here’s a couple of oldie country songs I remember well. My husband used to listen to these all the time, as he’s a big fan of country music, especially the old time country. I like a lot of country music, but it’s not my favorite genre. These two do seem to stay around in my memory of hearing them, though, and I do like them.

“Rose Colored Glasses”, by John Conlee, was released as a single from the album of the same name in 1978. It was written by John Conlee and George Baber, and is on the ABC label.

“There Stands the Glass”, by Webb Pierce, was released in 1953. It was written by Russ Hull, Mary Jean Shurtz, and Autry Greisham, and is on the Decca label.

There stands the glass that will ease all my pain
That will settle my brain it’s my first one today
There stands the glass that will hide all my tears
That will drown all my fear, brother I’m on my way
I’m wondering where you are tonight
I’m wondering if you are all right
I wonder if you think of me in my misery
There stands the glass fill it up to the brim
Til my troubles grow dim, it’s my first one today
I’m wondering where you are tonight
I’m wondering if you are all right
I wonder if you think of me in my misery
There stands the glass fill it up to the brim
Til my troubles grow dim, it’s my first one today
