    I posted on Skywatcher's thread about a song that I just love. It's a country song but the words are perfect. Hugs to skywatcher, watchingherskip and their families


    Live Like You Were Dying
    By Tim McGraw

    He said I was in my early forties
    with a lot of life before me
    when a moment came that stopped me on a dime
    and I spent most of the next days
    looking at the x-rays
    Talking bout the options
    and talking bout sweet time
    I asked him when it sank in
    that this might really be the real end
    how's it hit you when you get that kinda news
    man what'd you do

    and he said
    I went sky diving
    I went Rocky Mountain climbing
    I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
    and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
    and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
    and he said someday I hope you get the chance
    to live like you were dying.

    He said I was finally the husband
    that most the time I wasn't
    and I became a friend a friend would like to have
    and all the sudden going fishin
    wasn't such an imposition
    and I went three times that year I lost my dad
    well I finally read the good book
    and I took a good long hard look
    at what I'd do if I could do it all again

    and then
    I went sky diving
    I went Rocky Mountain climbing
    I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
    and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
    and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
    and he said someday I hope you get the chance
    to live like you were dying.

    Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about
    what'd you do with it what did you do with it
    what did I do with it
    what would I do with it?

    Sky diving
    I went Rocky Mountain climbing
    I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
    and then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
    and I watched an eagle as it was flying
    and he said someday I hope you get the chance
    to live like you were dying.
    To live like you were dying
    To live like you were dying
    To live like you were dying
    To live like you were dying

    Oh man where do I start

    For my kids

    Everythings Magic - Angels and Airwaves

    Just because I want them to never forget that there is magic in everything

    [YOUTUBE]pLOI-zBhwqM[/YOUTUBE]

    Everyday - Rascal Flatts

    Just because they do save me...everyday

    [YOUTUBE]bqus3aNHr7o[/YOUTUBE]

    And a pictorial..of my grandparents..here is the video...the first time I heard this song I had to pull over because I was crying so hard..it still gets me when I hear it

    In Color - Jamey Johnson

    [YOUTUBE]FXKBUK94cC0[/YOUTUBE]

    Said grandpa whatís this picture here.
    Itís all black and white it ainít real clear.
    Is that you there?
    He said yeah, I was 11.
    Times were tough back in '35, thatís me and Uncle Joe just tryiní to survive a cotton farm in the Great Depression.




    If it looks like we were scared to death like a couple of kids just trying to save each other you should've seen it in color.

    Oh, and this one here was taken over seas, in the middle of hell in 1943 in the winter time.
    You can almost see my breath.
    That was my tail gunner ole Johnny Maggee he was a high school teacher from New Orleans and he had my back right through the day we left.




    If it looks like we were scared to death like a couple of kids just trying to save each other you should've seen it in color.
    A picture's worth a thousand words but you canít see what those shades of gray keep covered you should've seen it in color

    This one is my favorite one. This is me and grandma in the summer sun all dressed up the day we said our vows.
    You can't tell it here but it was hot that June and that rose was red and her eyes were blue and just look at that smile I was so proud.
    Thatís the story of my life right there in black and white.



    And if it looks like we were scared to death like a couple of kids just trying to save each other you should've seen it in color.

    A pictures worth a thousand words but you canít see what those shades of gray keep covered you should have seen it in color.

    You should have seen it in color.

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    Great songs ladies! I do know the country ones. Honestly, these lyrics are why country songs are the best (IMHO). Sure the wife leaves and the dog dies (;)), but they are about real life.
