More of the Same.....

I'm tired because I've worked seven days straight and have two more to go. And then I have ten days off.

I have nothing to write today but I decided to just type anyway because that's what everything I've ever read about writing says to do when you don't feel like writing.

I don't feel like writing so I'm writing.

It was a long day at work today and I only did one thing which was create a table for summer reading books. Most of them are classics that I should have read a long time ago but I haven't. I'd like to take some time this summer, since I have no television shows left, to read four or five of those books.

By the way, on my way back from Kyle's ranch on Saturday I heard this song that I have since learned is on Brad Paisley's newest CD and is a duet with him and Alison Krauss. I'm telling you, this song made me weep. I guarantee you within a few years this song with be considered a classic. It's called whiskey lullaby and I'll print the lyrics below because it'll fill up space and I really want you to see the lyrics even though it won't be as powerful without the music because Alison Krauss could sing the phone book and bring me to tears:

Whiskey Lullaby (Featuring Alison Krauss)
Bill Anderson/Jon Randall (BMI)


She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night

1st Chorus
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

(Sing lullaby-- la, la, la, la, la, etc.)

The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
Until the night

2nd Chorus
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

(Sing lullaby- la, la, la, la, etc.)
