Thanks for sharing it with us. It reminds me of one of my favorite Tracy Lawrence songs:
"You find out who your friends are
Somebody's gonna drop everything
Run out and crank up their car
Hit the gas, get there fast
Never stop to think 'what's in it for me?' or 'it's way too far'
They just show on up with their big old heart
You find out who your friends are
Everybody wants to slap your back
wants to shake your hand
when you're up on top of that mountain
But let one of those rocks give way then you slide back down look up
and see who's around then."
Thanks so much for letting me know about the song.......DH & I always said that Kenny Roger's "THROUGH THE YEARS" is actually a song that could have been "written" ( somewhat ) for us.....I had it played at DH Terry's funeral......along with another "song" that we said was "our" song.....everyone was absolutely thrilled about the songs the children ( we have 4) and I chose......We chose religious and songs that were popluar in the early 70's when we dated.......( we dated for 2 1/2 weeks, wrote letters for 10 months ( back and forth to Germany where Terry was stationed in the Service) and Terry came home in June to marry me. You might say that we hardly "knew" each other....but it worked......and we had 28 1/2 wonderful years together !
Again, thanks for mentioning the song....I am going to look it up !
