    For the sake of the very few fans of country music on bladi (yes, we're a very small, select group), let's collect and suggest our favorite country songs here...

    I'll kick off this thread with one of my all-times favorites: "Love has no pride"

    I've had bad dreams too many times
    To think that they don't mean much anymore
    And fine times have gone and left my sad home
    And the friends who once cared just walk out my door

    But love has no pride when I call out your name
    And love has no pride when there's no one to blame
    But I'd give anything to see you again

    I've been alone too many nights
    To think that you could come back again
    I've heard you talk
    She's crazy to stay
    But this love hurt's me so
    I don't care what you say

    But love has no pride when I call out your name
    And love has no pride when there's no one to blame
    But I'd give anything to see you again

    If I could buy your love
    Then I'd surely try my friend
    And if I could pray
    My prayers would never end

    But if you want me to beg
    I'll fall down on my knees
    And ask you to come back
    I'd be pleading for you to come back
    I'd beg for you to come back to me

    Love has no pride when I call out your name
    And love has no pride when there's no one but myself to blame
    But I'd give anything to see you again
    Yes I'd give anything to see you again

    This is my favorite one..."Calling me" (Kenny Rogers and Don Henley)
    Here are the lyrics:

    There's a back road leadin' off the hard-top
    Half-a-mile past the slingshot tree
    Wanders round through a million mem'ries
    It's callin' me, callin' me.

    There's a white house with fading shutters
    The old front door that never needed a key
    An' I hear my Momma in the hush of the evenin'
    Callin' me, yeah, she's callin' me.

    An' no matter where I'm goin'
    It reminds me of where I'm from
    Just as long as I can hear it
    I know I'm not too far gone.

    There's a first kiss under the willow
    Love so honest, it was hard to believe
    An' even when my heart is breakin'
    It's callin' me, callin' me.

    Yes, it's callin' me
    (Ooh, yeah, yeah.)
    Callin' me, callin' me.

    An' no matter where I'm goin'
    It reminds me of where I'm from
    Just as long as I can hear it
    I know I'm not too far gone.

    There's a tiny country chapel
    Filled with voices singin' harmony
    An' when my soul is lost in the silence
    Oh, it's callin'; yes, it's callin' me.

    Yes it's callin' me.
    (Callin' me.)
    Callin'
    Oh, it's callin'
    Yes, it's callin' me...

    (By the way, "Love has no pride" is a beautiful song, thx!)

    my FAV is we `ve had enough/ michael jackson
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvjy6MQr6fE
    Love was taken from a young life
    And no one told her why
    Her direction has a dimlight
    From one more violent crime

    She innocently questioned why
    Why her father had to die
    She asked the men in blue
    How is it that you get to choose
    Who will live and who will die
    Did god tell you you could decide ?
    You saw he didn't run
    And that my daddy had no gun

    In the middle of a village
    Way in a distant land
    Lies a poor boy with his broken toy
    Too young to understand

    He's awaken, ground is shakin
    His father grabs his hand
    Screaming, crying, his wife's dying
    Now he's left to explain

    He innocently questioned why
    Why his mother had to die
    What did these soldiers come here for ?
    If they're for peace, why is there war ?

    Did God say that they could decide
    Who will live and who will die ?
    All my mama ever did
    Was try to take care of her kids

    We're innocently standing by
    Watching people lose their lives
    It seems as if we have no voice
    It's time for us to make a choice

    Only god could decide
    Who will live and who will die
    There's nothing that can't be done
    If we raise our voice as one

    They've gotta hear it from me
    They've gotta hear it from you
    They've gotta hear it from us
    We can't take it
    We've already had enough

    They've gotta hear it from me
    They've gotta hear it from you
    They've gotta hear it from us

    We can't take it
    We've already had enough

    They've gotta hear it from me
    They've gotta hear it from you
    They've gotta hear it from you baby

    We can't take it
    We've already had enough

    Deep in my soul baby

    Deep in your soul and let God decide

    Deep in my soul

    It's up to me and i'm still alive

    They've gotta hear it from us

    We can't take it
    We've already had enough

    It's going down baby
    Just let God decide,

    It's going on baby
    Just let God decide

    Deep in my soul baby

    We've already had enough

    They've gotta hear it from me
    They've gotta hear it from you
    They've gotta hear it from us

    We can't, we can't
    We've already had enough

    Great contributions guys! ;)

    This one's on the melancholic side: it's about an old man who's slowly losing the love of his life to Alzheimer.

    Moving Oleta

    Reba McEntire

    Moving Oleta was the hardest thing he'd done.
    The nurses saw an old woman crying,
    But he saw the love of his life.

    She don't know where she is,
    But she knows this isn't home:
    Love is a hard, hard road.

    He met her in the summer of thirty-seven,
    In a brush arbor down on the Rush Creek shore.
    He loved her black hair and the mischief in her smile
    But she won him with her eyes...

    All the years and children gone,
    He still sees her the same:
    Love is a hard, hard road.

    He woke up each morning and drove into town;
    He stayed all day 'til her dinner came.
    Then he took her to her room
    Leaned on her wheelchair like a walker,
    And covered her with a quilt that she'd made...

    Only God and a couple of nurses,
    Helped the old man shoulder the load:
    Love is a hard, hard road.

    He said "They tell me this is all that's left,
    Say this hell on earth is best,
    I list all those reasons and I still don't understand!"

    He cursed his body old and weak;
    Tears of failure burned his cheeks.
    He said "Oh, don't you know I prayed to die before this day...:"
    Love is a hard, hard road.

    There's a shadow much darker than the Valley of Death,
    When you fear the reaper might not come today.
    They line 'em up in lazy boys out in the sunroom;
    The TV keeps the quiet away...

    She can't recall his name,
    And she's the only love he's known:
    Love is a hard, hard road...
    Love is a hard, hard road.

    That's what I've said: we're a small select group, and country is picky about its fans... :D

    Actually, there's a lot of different brands of country music. Stuff I don't like is hillbilly or old-style country and western: that's really not my kind of music. But contemporary country, say from the nineties and 2000-2008 ain't all that bad. If you're in the right mood for it, it's decent music. Add to this bluegrass, alternative country and adult country, and it's an interesting mix to listen to from time to time. Just don't overdo it.

    haha i'm such a sucker for this stuff! i've been listening to this one non-stop tonight :rouge:

    allison krauss - when you say nothing at all


    It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
    Without saying a word you can light up the dark
    Try as I may I could never explain
    What I hear when you don't say a thing

    The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
    There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
    The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
    You say it best when you say nothing at all

    All day long I can hear people talking out loud
    But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
    Old Mr. Webster could never define
    What's being said between your heart and mine

    The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
    There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
    The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
    You say it best when you say nothing at all

    The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
    There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
    The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
    You say it best when you say nothing at all

    Since the day they got married,
    He'd been praying for a little baby boy.
    Someone he could take fishing,
    Throw the football and be his pride and joy.
    He could already see him holding that trophy,
    Taking his team to state.
    But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket,
    All those big dreams changed.

    And now he's wrapped around her finger,
    She's the center of his whole world.
    And his heart belongs to that sweet little beautiful, wonderful, perfect All-American Girl.

    Sixteen short years later,
    She was falling for the senior football star.
    Before you knew it he was dropping passes,
    Skipping practice just to spend more time with her.
    The coach said "Hey son, what's your problem? Tell me, have you lost your mind?"
    Daddy said you'll lose your free ride to college, boy you better tell her goodbye.

    But now he's wrapped around her finger,
    She's the center of his whole world.
    And his heart belongs to that sweet little beautiful, wonderful, perfect All-American...

    And when they got married and decided to have one of their own,
    She said "Be honest, tell me what do you want?"
    And he said "Honey, you oughta know... Sweet, little, beautiful... one just like you. Oh a beautiful, wonderful, perfect All-American..."


    Now he's wrapped around her finger,
    She's the center of his whole world.
    And his heart belongs to that sweet little beautiful, wonderful, perfect All-American Girl.
    Oh American Girl

    That's a very nice one cuty-pie. :)

    Here's another great one:

    Don't Take The Girl - Tim McGraw

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP1G5i5q-hk

    Johnny's daddy was taking him fishin',
    When he was eight years old.
    A little girl came through the front gate,
    Holding a fishing pole.

    His dad looked down and smiled,
    Said "we can leave her behind.
    Son, I know you don't want her to go,
    But someday you'll change your mind."

    And Johnny said
    "Take Jimmy Johnson,
    Take Tommy Thompson,
    Take my best friend Bo.

    Take anybody that you want
    As long as she don't go.
    Take any boy in the world,
    Daddy, please don't take the girl."

    Same old boy, same sweet girl,
    Ten years down the road,
    He held her tight and kissed her lips,
    In front of the picture show.

    Stranger came and pulled a gun,
    Grabbed her by the arm,
    Said "If you do what I tell you to do,
    There won't be any harm."

    And Johnny said
    "Take my money,
    Take my wallet,
    Take my credit cards.

    Here's the watch that my grandpa gave me,
    Here's the key to my car.
    Mister give it a whirl,
    But, please don't take the girl."

    Same old boy, same sweet girl,
    Five years down the road.
    There's gonna be a little one,
    And she says "it's time to go."

    Doctor says "the baby's fine,
    But you'll have to leave,
    'Cause his momma's fading fast,"
    And Johnny hit his knees.

    And there he prayed:
    "Take the very breath you gave me,
    Take the heart from my chest.
    I'll gladly take her place,

    If you'll let me;
    Make this my last request.
    Take me out of this world,
    God, please don't take the girl."

    Johnny's daddy, was taking him fishin',
    When he was eight years old...

    Hey baby, let's go to Vegas
    Kiss the single life good-bye
    Hey baby, let's go to Vegas
    Bet on love and let it ride

    Lyin' on the bank of the river
    Stars are dancin', Lord it's hot
    Holdin' you is what I live for
    I just had a crazy thought

    Hey baby, let's go to Vegas
    Kiss the single life good-bye
    Hey baby, let's go to Vegas
    Bet on love and let it ride

    We'll find a little wedding chapel
    A pair of rings and a preacher too
    Underneath the neon steeple
    We'll take a gamble and say "I do"

    Hey baby, let's go to Vegas
    Kiss the single life good-bye
    Hey baby, let's go to Vegas
    Bet on love and let it ride

    Viva Las Vegas, sparklin' lights
    Dangerous livin', tumblin' dice
    You're my ace in the hole now honey
    And I'm your lady luck
    Pack a few things and a little money
    And put 'em in the truck

    Hey baby, let's go to Vegas
    Kiss the single life good-bye
    Hey baby, let's go to Vegas
    Bet on love and let it ride
