TGIF (1)


TGIF is a weekly feature hosted by Ginger over at GReads.
Musical Stories: If you could read a book about any song,
which song would you love to see written down in story form?

Oh, this is a good question for me, but it's impossible for me to pick just one! I love music and I love songs that tell stories. I can really appreciate artists that write their own lyrics. I also have varied tastes and 43 years of memories to pick songs from! Here is a list of a few songs that I can quickly think of off the top of my head:

Matchbox Twenty - Rest Stop
Civil Twilight - Please Don't Find Me
Marc Broussard - Hope For Me Yet
Marc Broussard - Let Me Leave

Tracy Byrd - Somewhere I Wanna Go. Such a beautiful song. I love Tracy Byrd so very much. From 1993 until he stopped touring 2 years ago we used to go see him in concert at least 5 times a year. Sometimes even more than that. We were in his fan club so we always got to go backstage for hugs and pictures. My kids grew up with my husband and I following Tracy around and they loved it and thought roadtrips were normal. I even have a Tracy Byrd tattoo - that's how much I love him.

Okay, seriously now, this is my pick for a song that I would want to read a book about. I really like this song, and I really love Wade Hayes. I was so upset back in November when I found out he was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. I cried and cried. He had surgery right away and has been going through chemo. Hopefully he will be able to recover.

Wade Hayes - The Day That She Left Tulsa (In A Chevy)

We were a half mile high on the Ferris wheel
At our old county fair
I didn't even know we had trouble until
She told me way up there
That's when my life started spinning round
My world came crashing to the ground
The day that she left Tulsa

In a Chevy in a hurry in the pouring down rain
With the caution lights flashing in the passing lane
From a bridge I watched our dreams goin' down the drain
In a Chevy in a hurry in the pouring down rain

No she wasn't showing yet but she'd be by Christmas time
Up there like a fool I took for granted it was mine
She never came out and told me that I was wrong
But all of a sudden the light came on
The day that she left Tulsa

In a Chevy in a hurry in the pouring down rain
With the caution lights flashing in the passing lane
From a bridge I watched our dreams goin' down the drain
In a Chevy in a hurry in the pouring down rain

I guess she thought the truth would end up driving me away
Well she was wrong but I never had the chance to say
The day that she left Tulsa
