* TruckDriversGearChange: A few occasions: "Remember When" begins in G, modulates down to C for a solo, and then goes up to A for the final verses. "The Talkin' Song Repair Blues" does the half-step-by-verse variant, going from D to E-flat to E. He also wrote Clay Walker's "If I Could Make a Living", which begins in F, then repeats the chorus in G and again in A at the end.

* LyricalShoehorn: Pretty much all of the last two verses of "Where I Come From", which are composed of awkward phrasings and rhymes that barely make sense (for instance, "lost a universal joint and had to use my finger").

** "I'll Go On Loving You" is awfully melancholy for a song about how he will still love his woman after he's had sex with her. Really, [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong it sounds like a lot like "Suicide Is Painless"]].

* HeavyMeta: Besides the three-minute example listed below, this is also present in "The Talkin' Song Repair Blues," where a songwriter takes his car in for repairs and is given a bunch of fixup suggestions. The repairman then notices that his customer is a songwriter, and offers him a song which the songwriter then offers fix-up suggestions on in a similar fashion:
-->Well, I gave him my most sorrowful look\\
And I said, "This song's got a broken hook\\
I can order you a new one from Nashville, but it won't be cheap\\
And I know you've been using a cut-rate thesaurus\\
'Cause your adverbs are backed up into your chorus\\
And your verse is runnin' on verbs that are way too weak"
