Call it a cult, call it a clan
whatever you call it, I'm a big fan
of the steelers of the world (of the steelers of the world)
Is it a fact? I don't know why?
But most of them seem to be really shy!?
All the steelers of the world (all the steelers of the world)

The reason may be that they need to concentrate
on fingerpicks and pedals, - and the band won't wait!?
They've got a kind of 'header':
Always make it better!
I only wanna be a steelers wife!

Call it a cult, call it a clan
whatever you call it, I'm a big fan
of the steelers of the world (of the steelers of the world)
quiet and warm, friendly and nice
often it shows on their belly-size :)
on the steelers of the world (on the steelers of the world)

They could have picked an instrument they'd learn real fast
but chose a learning process that'll always last!
They've got a special passion!
Not so much in fashion!
I only wanna be a steelers wife!

Solos: Intro of band.

Call it a cult, call it a clan
whatever you call it, I'm a big fan
of the steelers of the world (of the steelers of the world)
All over the world, they've got a plan
of helping each other whenever they can
all the steelers of the world (all the steelers of the world)

They never get the credit or the proper pay! - (but)
without them where would country music be today?
They've got a kind of 'header':
Always make it better!
I only wanna be a steelers wife!
I only wanna be a steelers wife! 


STORY behind this song:

Well...this a TRIBUTE song to pedal steelguitar players all over the world with my heartfelt thanks for keeping Country Music alive! They chose THE MOST complicated instrument in the whole world and they all struggle with being better all the time. They even have a "CLAN" or "CULT" (A Steelguitar Forum) in which they actually help each other all around the world....and THAT is just so awesomeeee!

Being married to a steeler I have met A LOT of them, and I noticed that most of them have a lot in common, besides playing the steelguitar. They are real special people for sure. Talking to another steelers wife, we decided to call it 'a cult or 'a clan'...and that is what triggered my song...which is meant in the most loving way, but I also hope it will bring a smile on some faces. I just LOVE steelguitar and steelers! Don't you all?  You may see some pictures on my website
