1. Angels Flying Too Close to the Ground – Willie Nelson




If you had not have fallen
Then I would not have found you
Angel flying too close to the ground
And I patched up your broken wing and hung around a while
Trying to keep your spirits up and your fever down
I knew someday that you would fly away
For love’s the greatest healer to be found
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground
Fly on, fly on past, the speed of sound
I’d rather see you up than see you down
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground.
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground.

2. Believe – Brooks and Dunn



Old man Wrigley lived in that white house
Down the street where I grew up
My mama used to send me over with things
We struck a friendship up
I spent a few long summers
Out on his old porch swing
Said he was in the war, when in the navy
Lost his wife, lost his baby
Broke down and asked him one time
“How you keep from goin’ crazy?”
He said, “I’ll see my wife and son in just a little while”
Mm, I asked him what he meant, he looked at me and smiled
Said, “I raise my hands
Bow my head
I’m findin’ more and more truth
In the words written in red
They tell me that there’s more to life
Than just what I can see, I believe”
A few years later I was off at college
Talkin’ to mom on the phone one night
Gettin’ all caught up on the gossip
The ins and outs of the small town life
She said, “Oh, by the way son
Old man Wrigley’s died”
Later on that night
I laid there thinkin’ back
Thought about a couple long-lost summers
I didn’t know whether to cry or laugh
If there was ever anybody
Deserved a ticket to the other side
It’d be that sweet old man
Who looked me in the eye
Said, “I raise my hands
Bow my head
I’m findin’ more and more truth
In the words written in red
They tell me that there’s more to life
Than just what I can see”
I can’t quote the book
The chapter or the verse
You can’t tell me it all ends
In a slow ride in a hearse
You know I’m more and more convinced
The longer that I live
Yeah, this can’t be (no, this can’t be), no, this can’t be (no, this can’t be)
No, this can’t be all there is
Lord, I raise my hands
Bow my head
Oh, I’m findin’ more and more truth
In the words written in red
They tell me that there’s more to life
Than just what I can see (just what I can see), I believe
Oh, I (I believe)
I believe
I believe
(I believe)
I believe
(I believe)
I believe
(I believe)
I believe
(I believe)
I believe

“Believe” is a song about hope and belief. Hope that there is something better waiting for you, and there is a place where one can be with loved ones who have passed, and belief, that there is more to love and life than what can be seen.

 

3. Bless the Broken Road – Rascal Flatts


I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you
That every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yes it did
I think about the years I spent just passing through
I’d like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You’ve been there you understand
It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true
Every long lost dream led me to where you are
And others who broke my…

“Bless the Broken Road” is a song about love, and that in the end you were meant to be with the one you are with, and that fate doesn’t always follow a straight path but one with obstacles, mistakes, and detours, are necessary along the way to get you to the place you are and were meant to be.

 

4. Broken Halos – Chris Stapleton




Seen my share of
Broken halos
Folded wings that used to fly
They’ve all gone
Wherever they go
Broken halos that used to shine
Angels come down
From the heavens
Just to help us on our way
Come to teach us
Then they leave us
And they find some other soul to save
Seen my share of
Broken halos
Folded wings that used to fly
They’ve all gone
Wherever they go
Broken halos that used to shine
Broken halos that used to shine
Don’t go looking
For the reasons
Don’t go asking
Jesus why?
We’re not meant to know the answers
They belong to the by and by
They belong…

“Broken Halos” was inspired by the early death of a childhood friend of Stapleton’s. His friend passed away at the age of 38 from pancreatic cancer, and was the same age Stapleton was at the time. Stapleton wrote the song the very day he passed. It is a song inspired by those who are lost before “their time.”

 

5. Drink a Beer – Luke Bryan




When I got the news today
I didn’t know what to say.
So I just hung up the phone.
I took a walk to clear my head,
This is where the walking lead
Can’t believe you’re really gone
Don’t feel like going home
So I’m gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer
Funny how the good ones go
Too soon, but the good lord knows
The reasons why it gets
Sometimes the greater plan is kinda hard to understand
Right now it don’t make sense
I can’t make it all make sense
So I’m gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer
So long my friend, until we meet again
I’ll remember you
And all the times we used to
Sit right here on the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer
Drink a beer, drink a beer.

6. God’s Will – Martina McBride




I met God’s will on a Halloween night
He was dressed as a bag of leaves
It hid the braces on his legs at first
His smile was as bright as the August sun
When he looked at me
As he struggled down the driveway
It almost made me hurt
Will don’t walk too good
Will don’t talk too good
He won’t do the things that the other kids do
In our neighborhood
I’ve been searchin’, wonderin’, thinkin’
Lost and lookin’ all my life
I’ve been wounded, jaded, loved, and hated
I’ve wrestled wrong and right
He was a boy without a father
And his mother’s miracle
I’ve been readin’, writin’, prayin’, fightin’
I guess I would be still
Yeah, that was until
I knew God’s will
Will’s mom had to work two jobs
We’d watch him when she had to work late
And we’d all laugh like I hadn’t laughed
Since I don’t know when
Hey Jude was his favorite song
At dinner he’d ask to pray
And then he’d pray for everybody in the world but him
I’ve been searchin’, wonderin’, thinkin’
Lost and lookin’ all my life
I’ve been wounded, jaded, loved, and hated
I’ve wrestled wrong and right
He was a boy without a father
And his mother’s miracle
I’ve been readin’, writin’, prayin’, fightin’
I guess I would be still
Yeah, that was until
I knew God’s will
Before they moved to California
His mother said they didn’t think he’d live
And she said each day that I have him
Well It’s just another gift
And I never got to tell her
That the boy showed me the truth
In crayon red, on notebook paper
He’d written me and God love you
I’ve been searchin’, prayin’, wounded, jaded
I guess I would be still
Yeah that was until
I met God’s will on a Halloween night
He was dressed as a bag of leaves

7. Go Rest High on That Mountain – Vince Gill




I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain.
You weren’t afraid to face the devil,
You were no stranger to the rain.
Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done.
Go to heaven a-shoutin’
Love for the Father and the Son.
Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve.
I wish I could see the angels…

8. How Can I Help You Say Goodbye – Patty Loveless




Through the back window of our ’59 wagon
I watched my best friend Jamie slipping further away
I kept on waving till I couldn’t see her
And through my tears I asked again why we couldn’t stay
Mama whispered softly time will ease your pain
Life’s about changing nothing ever stays the same
And she said how can I help you to say goodbye it’s okay to hurt and it’s okay to cry
Come let me hold you and I will try how can I help you to say goodbye
I sat on our bed he packed his suitcase I held a picture of our wedding day
His hands were trembling we both were crying
He kissed me gently and then he quickly walked away
I called up mama and she said time will ease your pain
Life’s about changing nothing ever stays the same
She said how can I help you…
Sitting with mama alone in her bedroom
She opened her eyes and then squeezed my hand
She said I have to go now my time here is over
And with her final words she tried to help me understand
Mama whispered softly…

9. How Do I Live Without You – Trisha Yearwood




How do I get through one night without you?
If I had to live without you
What kind of life would that be?
Oh now, I need you in my arms, need you to hold
You’re my world, my heart, my soul
If you ever leave
Baby, you would take away everything good in my life
Without you, there’d be no sun in my sky
There would be no love in my life
There’d be no world left for me
And I, baby, I don’t know what I would do
I’d be lost if I lost you
If you ever leave
Baby, you would take away everything real in my life
And tell me now
How do I live without you?
I want to know
How do I breathe without you?
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive?
How do I, how do I, oh, how do I live?
If you ever leave
Baby, you would take away everything
I need you with me
Baby, ’cause you know that you’re everything good in my life
And tell me now
How do I live without you?
I want to know
How do I breathe without you?
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive?
How do I, how do I, oh, how do I live?
How do I live without you, baby

10. How Great Thou Art – Carrie Underwood




O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
And when I think of God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art

How great Thou art, how great Thou art

11. I Hope You Dance – Lee Ann Womack




I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’
Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance (Where those years have gone?)
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder?)

12. I’ll Fly Away – Hank Williams




Some glad morning when this life is over
I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away, oh, glory
I’ll fly away
When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye
I’ll fly away

13. I’m Already There – Lonestar




He called her on the road
From a lonely, cold hotel room
Just to hear her say I love you one more time
But when he heard the sound
Of the kids laughing in the background
He had to wipe away a tear from his eye
A little voice came on the phone
Said, “Daddy when you coming home?”
He said the first thing that came to his mind
I’m already there
Take a look around
I’m the sunshine in your hair
I’m the shadow on the ground
I’m the whisper in the wind
I’m your imaginary friend
And I know I’m in your prayers
Oh, I’m already there
She got back on the phone
Said I really miss you, darling
Don’t worry about the kids–they’ll be all right
Wish I was in your arms
Lying right there beside you
But I know that I’ll be in your dreams tonight
And I’ll gently kiss your lips
Touch you with my fingertips
So turn out the light and close your eyes
I’m already there
Don’t make a sound
I’m the beat in your heart
I’m the moonlight shining down
I’m the whisper in the wind
And I’ll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I’m already there
We may be a thousand miles apart
But I’ll be with you wherever you are
I’m already there
Take a look around
I’m the sunshine in your hair
I’m the shadow on the ground
I’m the whisper in the wind
And I’ll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I’m already there
Oh, I’m already there

14. I’m Gonna Miss You – Dolly Parton


I’m gonna miss you, I’m gonna miss you
You fought a good fight, may you rest in peace now
You’ve earned the right, you stood brave and tall
The ultimate price, we honor you now
For God and country, you gave it all
And although I’m proud of all that you stood for
My selfish heart just wants you home
Your family and friends are all so proud of you
But I can’t accept the fact that you’re gone
And I’m gonna miss you
When the golden sun sinks slowly o’er the crest of yonder hill
I’m gonna miss you
In the wee hours of the mornin’ when the world is calm and still
When I can see you, touch you, feel you, hear your heart beating true
Even though you’re gone, my love lives on
And I, I’m gonna miss you
I’m gonna miss you
I’m gonna miss you
Your touch, your smell, your kisses, and the comfort of your eyes
I’m gonna miss you
Your laughter, tears, your humor, and that crooked little smile
And I’m gonna miss the plans and dreams we had that never will come true
God wanted you, but I did too
And I, I’m gonna miss you
I’ll miss you
And I’ll see your face in every star
I’ll be lovin’ you wherever you are
I’ll miss you, god how I’ll miss you
While others go on with their lives
And I see you in our children’s’ eyes
I’ll miss you, oh how I’ll miss you
I’m gonna miss you, oh I will miss you
Oh how I’ll miss you
I’m gonna miss you, forever miss you

I am weak but Thou art strong

As I walk, let me walk close to Thee
Just a closer walk with Thee

Daily walking close to Thee

16. My Angel – Kellie Pickler




Every day when school got out
I’d get off the bus and I’d run down
That old dirt road where you were waiting for me
On the front porch in that blue swing
You’d be smiling and we would sing
Amazing Grace and Jesus Loves Me
You were like my mother
You were my best friend
You were everything I want to be
And all the good inside of me
There’s never been
Never been another
That loved me like you did
My grandmother, my angel
Even though I can’t touch your face
I feel you with me every day
I wish you could see all my dreams coming true
When I get lost I close my eyes
And I feel you shining down so bright
I feel you shining down on me
You were like my mother
You were my best friend
You were everything I want to be

17. Live Like You Were Dying – Tim McGraw




He said
“I was in my early forties
With a lot of life before me
And a moment came that stopped me on a dime

Looking at the x-rays
Talkin’ ’bout the options
And talkin’ ’bout sweet time”
I asked him
“When it sank in
That this might really be the real end
How’s it hit you
When you get that kind of news?
Man, what’d you do?”
He said
“I went skydiving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Fumanchu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I’d been denying”
And he said
“Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying”

18. Temporary Home – Carrie Underwood




Little boy, six years old
A little too used to bein’ alone
Another new mom and dad, another school
Another house that’ll never be home
When people ask him how he likes this place
He looks up and says with a smile upon his face
“This is my temporary home
It’s not where I belong
Windows in rooms that I’m passin’ through
This is just a stop, on the way to where I’m going
I’m not afraid because I know this is my
Temporary home.”
Young mom on her own
She needs a little help got nowhere to go
She’s lookin’ for a job, lookin’ for a way out
‘Cause a half-way house will never be a home
At night she whispers to her baby girl

Like a lifeline to my heart
Underneath the thunder, we’d be warm
If I had only known
It was our last walk in the rain
If I had only known
I’d never hear your voice again
I’d memorize each thing you ever said
And on those lonely nights
I could think of them once more
Keep your words alive inside my head
If I had only known
I’d never hear your voice again
You were the treasure in my hand
You were the one who always stood beside me
So unaware I foolishly believed
That you would always be there
But then there came a day
And I turned my head and you slipped…

20. Angels Among Us – Alabama




I was walkin’ home from school
On a cold winter day,
Took a short cut through the woods
And I lost my way.
It was gettin’ late, and I was scared and alone.
Then a kind old man took my hand, and led me home.
Mama couldn’t see him,
But he was standing there,
And I knew in my heart
He was the answer to my prayer.
Oh, I believe there are Angels Among Us,
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love.
When life held troubled times
And had me down on my knees
There’s always been someone
To come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger
To lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend
Just to say I understand
Now ain’t it kind of funny
At the dark…

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known you’d ever say goodbye
And now I’m glad I didn’t know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I’d have to miss the dance
Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn’t I the king
But if I’d only known how the king would fall
Hey who’s to say you know I might have changed it all
And now I’m glad I didn’t know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I’d of had to miss the dance
Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I’d of had to miss the dance

22. Daddy’s Hands – Holly Dunn




I remember daddy’s hands folded silently in prayer
And reachin’ out to hold me, when I had a nightmare
You could read quite a story in the callous’ and lines
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind
I remember daddy’s hands how they held my mama tight
And patted my back for something done right
There are things that I’d forgotten that I loved about the man
But I’ll always remember the love in daddy’s hands
Daddy’s hands were soft and kind when I was cryin’
Daddy’s hands were hard as steel when I’d done wrong
Daddy’s hands weren’t always gentle but I’ve come to understand
There was always love in daddy’s hands
I remember daddy’s hands workin’ ’til they bled
Sacrificed unselfishly just to keep us all fed
If I could do things over, I’d live my life again
And never take for granted the love in daddy’s hands
Daddy’s hands were soft and kind when I was cryin’
Daddy’s hands were hard as steel when I’d done wrong
Daddy’s hands weren’t always gentle but I’ve come to understand
There was always love in daddy’s hands
Daddy’s hands were soft and kind when I was cryin’
Daddy’s hands were hard as steel when I’d done wrong
Daddy’s hands weren’t always gentle but I’ve come to understand
There was always love in daddy’s hands

23. One More Day – Diamond Rio




Last night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me
It could be for anything
I didn’t ask for money
Or a mansion in Malibu
I simply wished for one more day with you!
One more day, one more time
One more sunset, maybe I’d be satisfied
But then again, I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you
One more day
First thing I’d do is pray for time to crawl
I’d unplug the telephone and keep the t.v off
I’d hold you every second
Say a million I love you’s
That’s what I’d do with one more day with you
One more day, one more time
One more sunset maybe I’d be satisfied
But then again I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you
One more day, one more time
One more sunset maybe I’d be satisfied
But then again I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still for one more day
Leave me wishing still for one more day
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you.

Remember when I was young and so were you
And time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when
Remember when we vowed the vows and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when
Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other’s hearts
Remember when
Remember when the sound of little feet
Was the music we danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we’d never give it up
Remember when
Remember when thirty seemed so old

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
And I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown
To the old rugged cross I will ever be true
It’s shame and reproach gladly bear
Then he’ll call me someday to my home far away
Where his glory forever I’ll share

And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it’s like
To ride a drop of rain
Yeah, when I get where I’m going
There’ll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I’ll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I’m going
Don’t cry for me down here

And he’ll match me step for step
And I’ll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left

27. When I’m Gone – Joey+Rory




A bright sunrise will contradict the heavy fog that weighs you down
In spite of all the funeral songs
The birds will make their joyful sounds
You’ll wonder why the earth still moves
You’ll wonder how you’ll carry on
But you’ll be okay on that first day when I’m gone
Dusk will come with fireflies and whippoorwill and cricket’s call
And every star will take its place
In silvery gown and purple shawl
You’ll lie down in our big bed
Dread the dark and dread the dawn
But you’ll be alright on that first night when I’m gone
You will reach for me in vain
You’ll be whispering my name
As if sorrow were your friend
And this world so alien
But life will call with daffodils
And morning glorious blue skies
You’ll think of me some memory
And softly smile to your surprise
And even though you love me still
You will know where you belong
Just give it time, we’ll both be fine
When I’m gone

Weatherman said it’s gonna snow
By now I should be used to the cold
Mid-February shouldn’t be so scary
It was only December
I still remember the presents, the tree, you and me
But you went away
How dare you, I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you
Living alone here in this place
I think of you, and I’m not afraid
Your favorite records make me feel better
‘Cause you sing along with every song
I know you didn’t mean to give them to me
But you went away
How dare you, I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you
It really sinks in, you know
When I see it in stone
‘Cause you went away,
How dare you, I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you

29. Three Wooden Crosses – Randy Travis




A farmer and a teacher, a hooker and a preacher
Ridin’ on a midnight bus bound for Mexico
One’s headed for vacation, one for higher education
And two of them were searchin’ for lost souls
That driver never ever saw the stop sign
And eighteen wheelers can’t stop on a dime
There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway
Why there’s not four of them, Heaven only knows
I guess it’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you
It’s what you leave behind you when you go
That farmer left a harvest, a home and eighty acres
The faith and love for growin’ things in his young son’s heart
And that teacher left her wisdom in the minds of lots of children
Did her best to give ’em all a better start
And that preacher whispered, “Can’t you see…

30. You Should Be Here – Cole Swindell




It’s perfect outside it’s like god let me dial up the weather
Got the whole crew here, I ain’t seen some of them in forever
It’s one of those never forget it, better stop and take it in kinda scenes
Everything’s just right yeah except for one thing
You should be here, standing with your arm around me here
Cutting up, cracking a cold beer
Saying cheers, hey y’all it’s sure been a good year
It’s one of those moments, that’s got your name written all over it
And you know that if I had just one wish it’d
Be that you didn’t have to miss this
You should be here
You’d be taking way too many pictures on your phone
Showing them off to everybody that you know back home
And even some you don’t yeah
They say now you’re in a better place
And I would be too if I could see your face
You should be here, standing with your arm around me here
Cutting up, cracking a cold beer
Saying cheers, hey y’all it’s sure been a good year
It’s one of those moments, that’s got your name written all over it
And you know that if I had just one wish
It’d be that you didn’t have to miss this
Aw you should be here
You’d be loving this, you’d be freaking out, you’d be smiling, yeah
I know you’d be all about what’s going on right here right now
God I wish somehow you could be here
Oh you should be here
Yeah this is one of those moments that’s got your name written all over it
And you know that if I have just one wish it’d be that you didn’t have to miss this
Aw you should be here
You should be here

31. You’re Gonna Miss This – Trace Adkins




She was staring out the window of that SUV
Complaining, saying “I can’t wait to turn eighteen”
She said “I’ll make my own money, and I’ll make my own rules”
Momma put the car in park out there in front of the school
She kissed her head and said “I was just like you”
You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this
Before she knows it she’s a brand new bride
In her one-bedroom apartment, and her daddy stops by
He tells her “It’s a nice place”
She says “It’ll do for now”
Starts talking about babies and buying a house
Daddy shakes his head and says “Baby, just slow down”
You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this
Five years later there’s a plumber workin’ on the water heater
Dog’s barkin’, phone’s ringin’
One kid’s cryin’, one kid’s screamin’
She keeps apologizin’
He says “They don’t bother me
I’ve got two babies of my own
One’s thirty six, one’s twenty three
Huh, it’s hard to believe, but
You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna’ miss this
Yeah
You’re gonna’ miss this

32. Don’t Blink – Kenny Chesney



I turned on the evening news
Saw an old man being interviewed
Turning a hundred and two today
Asked him what’s the secret to life
He looked up from his old pipe
Laughed and said “All I can say is”
Don’t blink
Just like that, you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your “better half”
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink
I was glued to my TV when it looked like he looked at me and said
“Best start putting first things first”
Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
You can’t flip it over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you for what it’s worth
Don’t blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your “better half”
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink
So I’ve been tryin’ to slow it down
I’ve been tryin’ to take it in
In this here today, gone tomorrow world we’re livin’ in
Don’t blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your “better half”
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink
Naw, don’t blink
Life goes faster than you think

33. If Heaven – Andy Griggs




If heaven was an hour, it would be twilight
When the fireflies start their dancin’ on the lawn
And suppers on the stove, and mammas laughin’
And everybody’s workin’ day is done
If heaven was a town it would be my town
On a summer day in 1985
And everything i wanted was out there waitin’
And everyone i loved was still alive
don’t cry a tear for me now baby
There comes a time we all must say goodbye
And if that’s what heavens made of
You know what I ain’t afraid to die
If heaven was a pie it would be cherry
Cool and sweet and heavy on the top
And just one bite would satisfy your hunger
There’d always be enough for everyone
If heaven was a train it sure…

34. If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away – Justin Moore




Every day I drive to work across Flint River bridge
A hundred yards from the spot where me and grandpa fished
There’s a piece of his old fruit stand on the side of Sawmill Road
He’d be there peelin’ peaches if it was twenty years ago
What I wouldn’t give
To ride around in that old truck with him
If heaven wasn’t so far away
I’d pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa
Watch ’em laugh at the way he talked
Find my long lost cousin John
The one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
She’s a doctor and he’d be proud
Tell ’em we’d be back in a couple of days
In the rearview mirror we’d all watch him wave
And losing them wouldn’t be so hard to take
If heaven wasn’t so far away
I’d hug all three of those girls we lost
From the class of ninety-nine
And I’d find my bird dog Bo and take him huntin’ one more time
I’d ask Hank why he took those pills back in fifty-three
And Janis to sing the second verse of “Me and Bobby McGee”
Sit on a cloud and visit for a while
It’d do me good just to see them smile
If heaven wasn’t so far away
I’d pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa
Watch ’em laugh at the way he talked
I’d find my long lost cousin John
The one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
She’s a doctor and he’d be proud
Tell him we’d be back in a couple of days
In the rearview mirror we’d all watch him wave
Yeah losing them wouldn’t be so hard to take
If heaven wasn’t so far
If heaven wasn’t so far
If heaven wasn’t so far away
So far away
So far away

35. There You’ll Be – Faith Hill




When I think back on these times
And the dreams we left behind
I’ll be glad, ’cause I was blessed to get
To have you in my life
When I look back on these days
I’ll look and see your face
You’re right there for me
In my dreams, I’ll always see you soar above the sky
In my heart, there will always be a place for you, for all my life
I’ll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
Well, you showed me how it feels
To feel the sky within my reach
And I always will remember all
The strength you gave to me
Your love made me make it through
Oh, I owe so much to you
You’re right there for me
In my dreams, I’ll always see you soar above the sky
In my heart, there will always be a place for you, for all my life
I’ll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
‘Cause I always saw in you my light, my strength
And I want to thank you now, for all the ways
You’re right there for me (You’re right there for me)
You’re right there for me
For always
In my dreams, I’ll always see you soar above the sky
In my heart, there will always be a place for you for all my life
I’ll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
There you’ll be
