You can judge a country song “epic”,
When the steel guitar strings scream…
The tune becomes one with your body;
You have lived what the lyrics mean.
“Today was Angie’s Birthday,
I guess it slipped your mind” *…
Sorry Angie, but life happens,
Merle knows that life’s unkind.
Yet some songs can deliver you,
To a cabin in the wood…
Where blue smoke from the chimney
Signals life is sweet and good.
*“ Holding Things Together” Merle Haggard
