For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Wednesday's song is an older one from Toby Keith. My List...




Artist/Band: Keith Toby

Lyrics for Song: My List

Lyrics for Album: Greatest Hits 2


Under an old brass paperweight

is my list of things to do today

Go to the bank and the hardware store,

put a new lock on the cellar door

I cross 'em off as I get 'em done

but when the sun is set

There's still more than a few things left

I haven't got to yet


Go for a walk,

say a little prayer

Take a deep breath of mountain air

Put on my glove and play some catch

It's time that I make time for that


Wade the shore and cast a line

Pick up a long lost friend of mine

Sit on the porch and give my girl a kiss

Start livin', that's the next thing on my list


Wouldn't change the course of fate

but cuttin' the grass just had to wait '

Cause I've bot more important things

like pushin' my kid on the backyard swing

I won't break my back for a million bucks

I can't take to my grave

So why put off for tomorrow

what I could get done today


Like go for a walk,

say a little prayer

Take a deep breath of mountain air

Put on my glove and play some catch

It's time that I make time for that


Wade the shore and cast a line

Pick up a long lost friend of mine

Sit on the porch and give my girl a kiss

Start livin', that's the next thing on my list

Raise a little hell,

laugh 'til it hurts

Put an extra five in the plate at church

Call up my folks just to chat

It's time that I make time for that

Stay up late,

then oversleep

Show her what she means to me

Catch up on all the things I've always missed


Just start livin',

that's the next thing on my list

Under an old brass paperweight

Is my list of things to do today




We all have lists to live by whether they are written down, in our mind, or someone has them written down for you! Just make sure you have fun and that you've added 'living' somewhere on that list. :)


Love,
Chatty
