Do any of you have any songs that you would like to share that you hold close to your heart?

I have several, but one song in particular I hold very close. It’s an old song, but it’s come back on CMT lately. Hank Jr. sings “A Country Boy Can Survive”.

Now, I had a bad spell in my life, I thought I had hit rock bottom. I didn’t think I was ever going to get better. It was only a state of mind. Now I blame the problem on some medication that I was on, but couldn’t see that at the time.

I’ve always liked “A Country Boy Can Survive”, but when I heard this song while I had my problem, I listened to it a little deeper and thought, You know what, I am strong, I can pull through this. When ever I would listen, it would give me the strength I needed to carry on.

And now I hold this song close, it really means something to me.

I sold what I could, and packed what I couldn't. Stopped to fill up on my way out of town. I loved like i should, and lived like a shouldn't. And I had to lose everything to find out. Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road. I'm movin on.....

You Shook me all Night Long -- AC/DC
Holy Grail -- Hunters and Collectors
Highway to Hell -- AC/DC

Living easy, livin' free
Season ticket, on a one - way ride
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don't need reason, don't need rhyme
Ain't nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there too

I'm on the highway to hell
Highway to hell
I'm on the highway to hell
Highway to hell

The Promise by Tracy Chapman

If you wait for me then I'll come for you
Although I've traveled far
I always hold a place for you in my heart
If you think of me If you miss me once in awhile
Then I'll return to you
I'll return and fill that space in your heart
Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting
If you dream of me like I dream of you
In a place that's warm and dark
In a place where I can feel the beating of your heart

Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting
I've longed for you and I have desired
To see your face your smile
To be with you wherever you are

Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting
I've longed for you and I have desired
To see your face, your smile
To be with you wherever you are

Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
Please say you'll be waiting

Together again
It would feel so good to be
In your arms
Where all my journeys end
If you can make a promise If it's one that you can keep, I vow to come for you
If you wait for me and say you'll hold
A place for me in your heart.

"Its your love" by Faith Hill and Tim Mcgraw, dont have time to write out the words just now, but it has special meaning between me and a very special man - He and I are those two people, soul mates, just a matter of getting to one another! Have a wonderful night everyone!

The preacher man says it’s the end of time and the Mississippi river is going dry.

The interest is up and the stock markets down, and ya only get mugged if ya go down town.

I live back in the woods ya see, the woman and the kids and the dogs and me.

I got a shotgun rifle, and a four wheel drive, and a country boy can survive.

Country folks can survive.

I can plow a field all day long, I can catch cat fish from dusk till dawn.

Make our whisky and our own smokes too, aint to many things these ol boys can’t do.

We grow big ol tomatoes and home made wine, and a country boy can survive. Country folks can survive.

Because you can’t stomp us out and you can’t make us run. We’re them ol boys raised on shot gun.

We say grace, we say ma’am, if you aint into that we don’t give a damn.

We came from the West Virginia coal mines, the Rocky Mountains, and the western skis.

And we can skin a buck, we can run a trout line, and a Country boy can survive, country folks can survive.

I had a good friend in New York City, he never called me by my name just hillbilly.

My grand paw taught me to live off the land and his taught him to be a business man.

He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights and I’d send him some home made wine.

But he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife, for forty three dollars my friend lost his life.


I’d love to spit some beach nut in that dudes eye and shoot him with my ol 45. Cause Country boy can survive, country folks can survive.

Because you can’t stomp us out and you can’t make us run. We’re them ol boys raised on shot gun.

We say grace, we say ma’am, if you aint into that we don’t give a damn.
We’re from north California and south alabam and little town all around this land.

And we can skin a buck, we can run a trout line, and a Country boy can survive, country folks can survive.

Country Boy can survive.

Country folks can survive.

Hold On
Wilson Phillips

I know this pain
Why do lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you
Don't ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

[Chorus:]
Some day somebody's gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don't you know?
Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things'll go your way
Hold on for one more day

You could sustain
Or are you comfortable with the pain?
You've got no one to blame for your unhappiness
You got yourself into your own mess
Lettin' your worries pass you by
Don't you think it's worth your time
To change your mind?

[Chorus]

I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and
Break free the chains
Yeah I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and you
Break free, break from the chains

Some day somebody's gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don't you know?
Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day yeah
If you hold on

Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day,
If you hold on
Can you hold on
Hold on baby
Won't you tell me now
Hold on for one more day 'Cause
It's gonna go your way

Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can't you change it this time

Make up your mind
Hold on
Hold on
Baby hold on

Black Eyes, Blue Tears... For reasons that aren't exactly secret.

"Black Eyes, Blue Tears"
Come On Over, Shania Twain
Written by Shania Twain and Mutt Lange.

Black eyes, I don't need 'em
Blue tears, gimme freedom

Positively never goin' back
I won't live where things are so out of whack
No more rollin' with the punches
No more usin' or abusin'

Bridge:
I'd rather die standing
Than live on my knees
Begging please-no more

Chorus:
Black eyes-I don't need 'em
Blue tears-gimme freedom
Black eyes-all behind me
Blue tears'll never find me now

Definitley found my self esteem
Finally-I'm forever free to dream
No more cryin' in the corner
No excuses-no more bruises

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

I'd rather die standing
Than live on my knees, begging please...

(Chorus)

It's all behind me, they'll never find me now

Find your self-esteem and be forever free to dream

I'm a country man myself, but just the other day, my girl played Joe Cocker " You are so beautiful", and came into the bathroom just as was I getting out of the shower. She pushed me down on the toilet and litteraly raped me right there. She looked me in the eyes and sang some of it to me while she was grinding herself on me deep, slow, and oh so passionately. Needless to say Joe Cocker made a tune that is etched in my mind for all time. God I love music!!!

Wow, I have a lot of them. One in particular is by Roy Orbison.....anything you want. My hubby used to always sing this to me when we were dating. It always managed to put a smile on my face.

Every time I look into your lovely eyes,
I see a love that money just can't buy.
One look from you, I drift away.
I pray that you are here to stay.

Anything you want, you got it.
Anything you need, you got it.
Anything at all, you got it.
Baby!

Every time I hold you I begin to understand,
Everything about you tells me I'm your man.
I live my life to be with you.
No one can do the things you do.
Anything you want, you got it.
Anything you need, you got it.
Anything at all, you got it.
Baby!
Anything you want
Anything you need
Anything at all

I'm glad to give my love to you.
I know you feel the way I do.
Anything you want, you got it.
Anything you need, you got it.
Anything at all, you got it.
Baby!
Anything you want, you got it
Anything you need, you got it
Anything at all, you got it
Baby
Anything at all
Baby
You got it
