Music Monday: There Goes My Life

I don't think I've seen a country song on Music Monday, so correct me if I'm wrong or let me be the love of country music dates back to a long distance romance with a country music disc jockey in 1993, and luckily Rex has gone country, too. Ah, I used to be so tough... and maybe I'm getting old, or maybe it is just being a mom, but this song never fails to make me cry.

Roxy's contribution to this week's Music Monday comes from country artist Kenny Chesney and "There Goes My Life."

All he could think about was I'm too young for this.
Got my whole life ahead.
Hell I'm just a kid myself.
How'm I gonna raise one.

All he could see were his dreams goin' up in smoke.
So much for ditchin' this town and hangin' out on the coast.
Oh well, those plans are long gone.

And he said,
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
Might as well kiss it all good-bye.
There goes my life...

A couple years of up all night and a few thousand diapers later.
That mistake he thought he made covers up the refrigerator.
Oh yeah...he loves that little girl.

Momma's waiting to tuck her in,
As she fumbles up those stairs.
She smiles back at him dragging that teddy bear.
Sleep tight, blue eyes and bouncin' curls.

He smiles...
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
I love you, daddy good-night.
There goes my life.

She had that Honda loaded down.
With Abercrombie clothes and 15 pairs of shoes and his American Express.
He checked the oil and slammed the hood, said you're good to go.
She hugged them both and headed off to the West Coast.

And he cried,
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
I love you.
Baby good-bye.

Roxy, I am not a huge country music fan either but I do like some of them. I oso like Carrie Underwood! Yeeha!

This one by Chesney is kinda slow and soothing, so it's not bad at all! ;)

I never really listened to country music before, but I have been seeing a wonderful guy who does so it is growing on me. This is a great song.

Haven't battled you in a while...Let's get it on!


Good luck!

Jason said...

Wow, this is a tough vote. You've got country and Matt has boy bands. I cannot even begin to describe the levels at which I loathe both of these musical genres. Lucky for you we have a voting alliance and I think Matt is kind of a tool.

Mizé said...

I like country but don´t know much, only some oldies.
A melodic love song and a nice guitar. I liked it.
Thanks for dropping by.

Mariuca said...

I'm not a huge country fan but I discovered Brad Paisley's Waitin on a woman with Andy Griffith. That song made me shed a couple tears.
