Songs about me........

I was thinking today as I was listening to the radio.What song best explains you?I go through several songs a day in my head and even more when I cut on a radio or pop in a cd.Music seems to relax me alot and reminds me of my past.Unfortunately I only listen to country.It does seem like I have lived alot of my life through the songs I hear but there are two that explain me to a "T".Here are the lyrics for them.

This first song is by Chris Ledoux and it's called "This Cowboy's Hat"


Well I was sitting in a coffee shop
just having a cup to pass the time
swapping rodeo stories with this old cowboy friend of mine.
When some motorcycle riders started snickering in the back
started poking fun at my friend's hat.
One old boy said "hey Tex, where'd you park your horse"
My friend just pulled his hat down low, but they couldn't be
ignored.
One husky fella said "I think I'll rip that hat right off your
head".
That's when my friend turned around, and this is what he said...
You'll ride a black tornado across a western sky.
Rope an old blue norther and milk it 'till it's dry.
Bulldog the Mississippi, pin its ears down flat
Long before you take this cowboy's hat.
Now partner, this old hat's better left alone.
You see, it used to be my daddy's, but last year he passed on.
My nephew skinned the rattler that makes up this old hat band.
But back in '69, he died in Vietnam.
Now the eagle feather was given to me by an Indian friend of mine.
Someone ran him down somewhere around that Arizona line.
And a real special lady give me this hat pin
And I don't know if I'll ever see her again.
You'll ride a black tornado across a western sky.
Rope an old blue norther and milk it 'till it's dry.
Bulldog the Mississippi, pin its ears down flat
Long before you take this cowboy's hat.
Now if your leather jacket means to you what this hat means to me,
then I guess we understand each other, and we'll just let it be.
But if you still think it's funny,
Man, you got my back up against the wall
And if you touch my hat, you're gonna have to fight us all.
Well right then I caught a little sadness in that gang leader's
eyes.
He turned back to the others and they all just kind of shuffled on
outside
But when my friend turned back towards me I noticed his old hat brim
Well it was turned up in a big old Texas grin!
You'll ride a black tornado across a western sky.
Rope an old blue norther and milk it 'till it's dry.
Bulldog the Mississippi, pin its ears down flat
Long before you take this cowboy's hat.


This next song is called "Songs about me" by Trace Adkins


I met a guy on a Red Eye, he spotted my guitar and said Whada you do?
I said I sing for a livin’. Country music mixed with a little rock and a little blues.
He said I’m sorry but I’ve never been crazy ‘bout that twang and trains and hillbilly things.
Whatever made you want to sing stuff like that?
I just looked at him and laughed and said….

Cause it’s songs about me
And who I am
Songs about lovin and livin and good hearted women, family and God
Yeah they’re all just songs about me
Songs about me

So I offered him tickets. I said You’ll see what I mean if you show up tonight.
He said I doubt you’ll change my opinion . I’ll be kinda busy but hey man, I’ll try.
Then later on when we finished our songs about scars and cars and broken hearts,
I saw him, he was standing there right next to the stage and he shouted
Man you were right it was like you sang those

Songs about me and who I am
Songs about lovin and livin and good hearted women, family and God
Yeah they’re all just songs about me
Songs about me, yeah

So I’ll just keep on singing til I hear the whole world singing.

Those are songs about me and who I am.
Songs about lovin and livin and good hearted women, family and God.
Yeah they’re all just songs about me.
Songs about me.
