Mac Davis is perhaps best known for his role in North Dallas Forty in 1979, alongside Nick Nolte. He also had his own TV variety show in the 1970's. He was born in Lubbock, Texas on January 21, 1942, where he was raised. As a singer/songwriter, he wrote "In the Ghetto" and "A Little Less Conversation", both made popular by Elvis Presley. His "I Believe in Music" is likely his most attributed song.Read More...
His most popular song may be "Texas in My Rear View Mirror" which is somewhat autobiographal since he was raised in Lubbock and left there to make it big, only to return later a much wiser man. "Watchin' Scotty Grow" was written for his son, and is better known in the recording made popular by singer Bobby Goldsboro.

- LyricsGirl you're gettin' that look in your eyes,
and it's starting to worry me.
I ain't ready for no family ties,
nobody's gonna hurry me.
Just keep it friendly girl 'cause I don't want to leave,
- Lyrics"Back a few months ago, I was headlinin' a great big nightclub
And they put me up a couple days early, I came in a couple days early
And they put me up in what they call the "Star Suite"
Now here I am, headlinin' in one of the biggest nightclubs
In the country and I wake up at eight o'clock in the morning

Where you going in such a hurry
Don't you think it's time you realized
There's a whole lot more to life than work and worry
The sweetest things in life are free
- LyricsShe's a woman
She's a baby
She's a witch
She's a lady
She's a free and gentle spirit
- LyricsAs the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
