The Beauty of Country Music

Because I am the only one blogging at the moment, I am going to indulge myself and post the lyrics to a great country song from a great artist, John Michael Mongtomery:

by John Michael Montgomery

Album : Letters from Home,
The Very Best of John Michael Montgomery

He really liked flannel with red over-alls
if you look in his closet it was all that you saw
He dressed up on Sunday and thought he look neat
in a green leasure suit with wing tips on his feet

And I was 15 and real hip with long hair
and I asked momma why is daddy so square
and I couldn't belive all that he didn't know
I guess it's hard to be cool when your 40 years old

The night I turned 20 she came with the news
scared half to death and didn't know what to do
I told her I'm sorry but it's not to late, there's a doctor
I heard of that fixes mistakes

I though he was workin' and I was alone
but he was standing behind me when I hug up the phone
he said son there's a few thing you don't know about
if you listen real close we can figure this out
cus i was 18 and as wild as it came when one night
a young girl told me the samething and you wouldn't be here
if she haden't said no you see it's hard to be cool when you're 20 years old

These day's I like flannel and old levi jeans
and I look at my young boy who just turned 15 and I know what he's thinking but its ok to know because it's hard to be cool
when your 15 years old

To get a feel for the music, check out the sample over at amazon.

Other than -- maybe -- Christian Music, what other genre is going to tackle an issue like abortion in this way? Considering it as a moral issue (not just a legal one) with the young man making the right decision? That last part I think is significant. Calling on young men to take responsibility and act morally and with maturity when facing sexual and family issues is rare in our society.
