~Favorite Song's About Friends~





Tracy Lawrence - Find Out Who Your Friends Are



Oh,
Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere
Or get yourself in a bind lose the shirt off your back
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare

This is where the rubber meets the road
This is where the cream is gonna rise
This is what you really didn't know
This is where the truth don't lie

{Chorus}
You find out who your friends are
Somebody's gonna drop everything
Run out and crank up their car
Hit the gas, get there fast
Never stop to think 'what's in it for me?' or 'it's way too far'
They just show on up with their big old heart
You find out who your friends are

Everybody wants to slap your back
wants to shake your hand
when you're up on top of that mountain
But let one of those rocks give way then you slide back down look up
and see who's around then

This ain't where the road comes to an end
This ain't where the bandwagon stops
This is just one of those times when
A lot of folks jump off

{Chorus}

When the water's high
When the weather's not so fair
When the well runs dry
Who's gonna be there?

{Chorus}

You find out who your friends are
(yeah, yeah)
You find out who your friends are

Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere
(Well man, I've been there)
Or get yourself in a bind lose the shirt off your back
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare
(Man, I've been there)

Man, I've been there
Oooh yeah.

Shania Twain - Come On Over (Dallas)


Get a life-get a grip
Get away somewhere, take a trip
Take a break-take control
Take advice from someone you know
Come on over-come on in
Pull up a seat-take a load off your feet
Come on over-come on in
You can unwind-take a load off your mind

Make a wish-make a move
Make up your mind-you can choose
When you're up-when you're down
When you need a laugh come around

Come on over-come on in
Pull up a seat-take a load off your feet
Come on over-come on in
You can unwind-take a load off your mind

Oh, oh, oh...

Be a winner-be a star
Be happy to be who you are
Gotta be yourself-gotta make a plan
Gotta go for it while you can

Come on over-come on in
Pull up a seat-take a load off your feet
Come on over-come on in
You can unwind-take a load off your mind

Get a life-get a grip
Get away somewhere, take a trip
Take a break-take control
Take advice from someone you know

Come on over-come on in
Pull up a seat-take a load off your feet
Come on over-come on in
You can unwind-take a load off your mind

Oh, oh, oh...

Easily a most loving song about his record company, written by Freddy Mercury in Queen.

Death on Two Legs.

Very touching.

When I saw this thread, the first song to come to mind was "Friendship" by Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra (1940). If you're a Tommy Dorsey fan, this is totally unlike anything else he ever did. The female soloist is a very young Jo Stafford, who would be a big singing star in the latter part of the '40's and well into the '50's. Sadly, the song is not on Youtube, but you can hear it on the Tommy Dorsey Juke Box, No. 18.

Emotions are definitely heavy for those I pinged.

And you’re right, I wish I could send that message to all FReepers.

My favorite version of this song is by the Miami Royal Palm Orchestra, but it's unavailable online. However, Ray Starita, from England, recorded a fine version.

Together--Ray Starita and His Ambassadors (1928)

Wake-Up Call

November 2, 2012

One early autumn morning as I drove to work in the dark, I was startled by a flash of brown in my headlights followed by the sound of something hitting the front of my car. I had clipped a deer at 70 miles per hour! It was only a glancing blow, and no damage was done to my car (or the deer, as far as I could tell), but it really shook me up. I had been in my usual “autopilot mode” for the familiar drive to the office, but the shock of the incident certainly got my attention. I was now fully alert and trying to calm a racing heartbeat. It was a most unpleasant wake-up call.

The apostle Peter offers us a different kind of wake-up call—one that while unpleasant is necessary. He alerts us to a spiritual battle we are engaged in with a powerful enemy. Peter warns, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). This is a call to wake up, see the danger, and be ready for his attack!

Only when we are aware of the danger that faces us every day will we consciously seek the help we need. And only if we are on the alert will we lean on the strength of our Lord, who is greater than our spiritual enemy.

Though evil may surround us,
We need not fear defeat;
For when God fights the battle,
Our enemies retreat. —Sper
The Christian life is a battleground.

Read: 1 Peter 5:1-9

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. —1 Peter 5:8
Bible in a Year:
John 1-3

PLAYMATE-Kay Kayser

From my childhood in the 40s.

Playmate come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three,
Climb up my apple tree,
Look down my rain barrel,
Slide down my cellar door,
And we’ll be jolly friends forever more

She couldn’t come out and play,
It was a sunny day
With tearful eye, she breathed a sigh
And I could hear her say,

I’m sorry, playmate,
I cannot play with you
My dollies have the flu,
Ain’t got no rain barrel,
Ain’t got no cellar door
But we’ll be jolly friends, forever more
