25 March 2007, Another Sunday ends another week here in Afghanistan. We had a good day today. Ron Simpson over at The Cluttered Eclectic Mind tagged me with the 7 songs I'm into meme. This would have been easier for just picking artists, but here we go.

I Cross My Heart - George Strait
This is a song that brings me closer to Mrs. Dub, I have several that make me think of the time we have had and will have when I'm home again.

You Do Your Thing - Montgomery Gentry
Just the first of a list of songs that get my patriotic blood pumping through my veins.
"I ain't tradin' in my family's safety
Just to save a little gas
And I'll pray to God any place, any time
And you can bet I'll pick up the phone if Uncle Sam calls me up
You do your thing, I'll do mine"
Beer For My Horses - Toby Keith
Just stepping up to the plate to answer the call and serve up justice to those doing wrong.
American By God's Amazing Grace - Luke Stricklin
"For the last twelve months I've had a new address, the neighborhood smells like sewerage and the streets are lined with trash. You never know what's gonna be the next thing to explode but unlike these people, I have another home. It breaks my heart to see these kids out on the streets walking barefoot through the trash, diggin' for something to eat. I give them what I got, just to let them know I care and I thank God it's not my son that's standing there"
This Cowboy's Hat - Chris LeDoux
You can say what you want but when you try to take something away from me, you might get more than what you bargained for, Chris speaks of an old hat that each symbol on it has meaning in his life about someone in his life. Respect it or leave it alone. (hmmm, I like that slogan)
Not Me - Keni Thomas
Pride, Honor, Integrity, these aren't just words to a soldier, they are a way of life...
"A young captain at attention, a star pin on his chest, He recalls the battle while the final roll call's read. They were the finest soldiers it was my privilege to lead, They deserve the medals the men who died, not me Not me, not me, I just did what i was called to do, you'd do the same if it was you, Not me, not me. The world becomes a better place when someone stands and leads the way, steps forward when they'd rather say not me"
Fightin' Words - Trace Adkins
So one slip of the tongue 'bout my dog
Or my woman
Or this country that I proudly serve
You'll see a side of me man
That you damn sure don't wanna
Cause them there's fightin' words
Excuse me
First amendment?
Son, the first amendment protects you from the government
Not from me
You can say whatever you want to out there
You come within reach of me
I'll exercise my right to give you a good ol' country ass whoopin'
Is what I'll do for you
By God
These are my songs, these are my views. Be safe and have a great day.

The Dixie Chicks aside, country music is the most patriotic.

Remember "McBride in the Ride - Can I Count On You?" That started it all for us! I'm glad you picked "Cross my Heart" as our song -- everytime I hear it, I'm reminded of our wedding day :} I'm suprised you didn't pick "American Soldier" by Toby Keith. I also like "That's Something To Be Proud of" by Montgomery Gentry. They all make me think of you and make me very Proud of what you do!

Callie Ann said...

DariDonovan said...

Been a fan of George Strait for many years. He is awesome. Great song list. Just getting in from a weekend business trip, popped over to say hello. Have a great week!

Haven't had a moment yet to do that other thing you listed, will try and do that first of the week.

Sarge Charlie said...

dixie chicks, who's that ron? Great choices Sarge, you are my kind of guy. I am dropping off your soap box, thanks for the use of it, sometime you just have to climb up on something.

Sarge Charlie said...

Oh remember "Together Again" its a nice homecoming song.........

how many days??????????

JustMeShann said...

Great song list... One of my favorites also is Arlington; make me tear everytime I hear no matter where I am... Happy Monday to you :o)

ShadowFalcon said...

Is it bad that I haven't heard any of those songs

Sarge Charlie said...

Did you see the movie with George Strait, if I remember right your song is what he did on a stage in LV, a real tear jerker.......

Skittles said...

Great songs! I Cross My Heart was my son & daughter-in-law's first dance at their reception :)

MrsDub said...

It's 10:30 and you never called back, so I guess I will talk to you tonight. Love you

David said...

Nothing better than George Strait to tell your wife you love her... as long as it's not All My Exes.

Katie said...

Good picks and I have to say one of my favorites is George Strait. :)

Michael C said...

Looking at your list makes me think you and I would get along very well!

Cross my heart was my wedding song and Chris LeDoux's This Cowboy's Hat is awesome! His boxed set has been a fixture in my truck for 10 years now.

Luke Strickland was here in Boise at the farewell picnic for the 321st.

I love that song...

MrsDub said...

Everyone needs to go to Flagazer's site and watch the video of Chely Wright performing "Bumper of my SUV". It's a song she wrote about her brother, who is a Marine. Awesome song and it says it all!!! We all need to display our Colors Proudly!!

I really feel bad that I don't know any of these. I do know George Strait, and might know the song if I heard it. I recognize Chris LeDoux, Toby Keith and Trace Adkins. I like Trace Adkins' voice. After listening to and watching Hannity and understanding how patriotic these guys are, I will support them. My hubman likes C&W and we've been listening to Brad Paisley's latest. I'm really trying hard...
