I heard a new song on the radio today and I am IN LOVE with it! Oh my goodness, so in love it’s not even funny. I have to blog the lyrics, I cannot find a video, I think they have one on YouTube and when I am able to get it (my computer belongs to the school district, I can’t access videos on it) I will post it. Please read the lyrics, though, please! They will get to you…I just know it. I’m thinking of posting a blog of the things that I am for..although too many of the ones on this song are what would be on my list…

What I’m For
Pat Green
I’m for wildflowers in the window
Mechanics you can trust
I’m for crackers in my chili
And leavin’ grudges in the dust
I’m for drive thru order takers
Who can muster up a smile
I’m for takin’ in that stray dog
That’s been hangin’ ’round for awhile
I’m for turning off the TV
Gettin’ off the internet
I’m for learning all the words
To the Gettysburg Address
I’m for dusty pawn shop guitars
And boxers passed their prime
I’m for soakin’ up the wisdom
When an old man speaks his mind.
I’m for laid off factory workers
When the wolf is at the door
You don’t have to guess what I’m against
If you know what I’m for
I’m for Texas Margaritas
Gettin’ outta debt
I’m for havin’ faith in something
That hasn’t happened yet
For the shy kid in the corner
Afraid to ask the girl to dance
For the ex-con outta prison
Who just wants a second chance
For the inner city teacher
With her heart stuck in her throat
Can still see God in every child
And never gives up hope
I’m for dusty pawn shop guitars
And boxers passed their prime
I’m for soakin’ up the wisdom
When and old man speaks his mind
I’m for Detroit factory workers
When the wolf is at the door
You don’t have to guess what I’m against
If you know what I’m for
I’m counting all my blessings
When the wolf is at my door
You don’t have to ask what I’m against
You don’t have to guess what I’m against
You know what I’m for
