Anyway I downloaded all the songs we had on iTunes (ones the kids had bought and ones that we had put on the computer from CD's) but knew there were literally hundreds of songs that I would love to have so I implemented the "Feel Good Song Of The Day" for myself - some days I buy one and some days I just look thru what we have and go with anything that makes me smile - it is my theme song for the day!
So these were last weeks picks:
- Delta Dawn - Tanya Tucker
- Lizzie and The Rainman - Tanya Tucker (I am a huge Tanya Tucker fan)
- Rollin' With The Flow - Charlie Rich
"Seems to me if you were going to spend that much money on someone singing it's ashame it's not Merle Haggard!"
So Merle Haggard it will be today - it just came down to picking a song! The first that occurred to me was Pancho and Lefty - right before Chris and I got married we were at the Amity Sale Barn one night and they ran some baby goats thru the ring and I said "Awww I want a baby goat" and being that we were still in that "Whatever makes you happy sweetheart" stage - we brought 2 baby goats home - we named them Pancho and Lefty - poor Lefty only made it a couple of days but Pancho was the best goat ever (I know that several people who know me well are picking themselves up off the floor right now as they never knew I owned a goat or even admit that I loved that dumb goat) - but he was a good goat, he seriously never caused a problem, he never ate stuff he wasn't supposed too, never got out of his pen on his own - he was like a goat on Prozac - happy and well behaved!
I really did love that goat!
But that really isn't what you might call a peppy song - some of my other favs by Merle Haggard would be:
Mama Tried, I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink, The Fightin' Side of Me, Workin' Man Blues - the list goes on - but not really what I was looking for in my theme song for the day! So I asked Chris and after singing a few verses from about 20 Merle Haggard songs he starts singing "Rainbow Stew" and I knew that was it!
