    Can't remember the title of a country song

    Okay, I need help. I'm trying to think of a song, I believe it came out around 1998 or 1999. The basic premise of the song is to pay forward a good deed or favor to someone in place of the person who just helped each character in the song. I think there was a part in the song about someone stranded on the side of the road, and a waitress and a tip, and it was sung by a male country artist, but I don't recall who it was. Does this sound familar to anyone? Google searches haven't brought up anything for me so far.

    I definitely remember the song but am drawing the same blank as you at the title, sava.

    Re: Can't remember the title of a country song

    sava, that would be the song "The Chain Of Love" by Clay Walker. It's an awesome song.

    He was driving home one evening,
    In his beat up Pontiac
    When an old lady flagged him down,
    Her Mercedes had a flat
    He could see that she was frightened,
    Standing out there in the snow
    'Til he said I'm here to help you ma'am,
    By the way my name is Joe

    She said I'm from St. Louis,
    And I'm only passing through
    I must have seen a hundred cars go by,
    This is awful nice of you
    When he changed the tire,
    And closed her trunk
    And was about to drive away,
    She said how much do I owe you
    Here's what he had to say

    You don't owe me a thing, I've been there too
    Someone once helped me out,
    Just the way I'm helping you
    If you really want to pay me back,
    Here's what you do
    Don't let the chain of love end with you

    Well a few miles down the road,
    The lady saw a small cafe
    She went in to grab a bite to eat,
    And then be on her way
    But she couldn't help but notice,
    How the waitress smiled so sweet
    And how she must've been eight months along,
    And dead on her feet

    And though she didn't know her story,
    And she probably never will
    When the waitress went to get her change,
    From a hundred dollar bill
    The lady slipped right out the door,
    And on a napkin left a note
    There were tears in the waitress's eyes,
    When she read what she wrote

    You don't owe me a thing,
    I've been there too
    Someone once helped me out,
    Just the way I'm helping you
    If you really want to pay me back,
    Here's what you do
    Don't let the chain of love end with you

    That night when she got home from work,
    The waitress climbed into bed
    She was thinkin' about the money,
    And what the lady's note had said
    As her husband lay there sleeping,
    She whispered soft and low
    Everything's gonna be alright, I love you, Joe

    I can't remember the name to a song, either. It goes like this:

    "hmm mmmm him."

    Anyone know?

    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    I had that on vinyl, till my daughter's boyfriend kicked his feet on the table where it was lying, and crushed it. Dude looked like "Joey" from the TV show Friends too. Took me forever to find that record.
