Wednesday Post #2

The song below is my new mantra. I've loved it since I first heard it, and it still has the power to make me suck it all up and keep going. Rodney Atkins is my new hero - well, plus he's pretty hot. I met him when he played here in early June, and he was so nice.
Anyway....here's a shout-out to Mr. Atkins with a big "Thank You" for putting out a song that I can really relate to.

IF YOU'RE GOIN' THROUGH HELL

Well you know those times when you feel like
There's a sign there on your back
That says I don't mind if you kick me, seems like everybody has
Things go from bad to worse, you think it can't get worse than that
And then they do

You step off the straight & narrow and you don't know where you are
Used the needle of your compass to sew up your broken heart
Ask directions from a genie in a bottle of Jim Beam & she lies to you
That's when you learn the truth

If you're goin' through hell, keep on goin', don't slow down
If you're scared don't show it
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there

I've been deep down in that darkness
I've been down to my last match
Felt a hundred different demons breathin' fire down my back
And I knew that if I stumbled I'd fall right into the trap
That they were layin'

But the good news is there's angels everywhere out on the street
Holdin' out a hand to pull you back up on your feet
The one's that you've been draggin' for so long
You're on your knees, might as well be prayin'
Guess what I'm sayin

If you're goin' through hell, keep on goin', don't slow down
If you're scared don't show it
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there


When you're goin' through hell, keep on movin'
Face that fire, walk right through it
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there

I agree, sometimes it would be very nice to slap fate with everything you got! Just once. Trouble is, y'know you're gonna pay hard for it.

Good tune, will have to find it to hear it!

Chin up! or as another blogger said Cowgirl up!

I like this song...I like all kinds of music but this song--I've heard it recently & it makes me feel hopeful about the impending divorce!
