#30 day album challenge

https://sandmanjazz.wordpress.com/2020/09/08/30-day-album-challenge-day-8/

Fully Loaded God’s Country by Blake Shelton is the last music purchase I’ve made. The three songs that appealed to me the strongest are Hell Right, Nobody But You, and Came Here to Forget. But Turning Me on is pretty good as well. I’m really glad I purchased the cd versus just hearing it on YouTube or Apple Music. I was pleased to see that Blake co-wrote some of the songs.

Hell Right because it reminds of so many memories with my children and friends around bonfires. Lots of booze tossed back, laughter, and tears. Some days I miss those bonfires but not many of the people unfortunately other than my children. It’s funny what happens after a divorce, people who you believed were your friends disappear. Some continued being my friend and some came back around to being a friend. But those days of tossing back booze right the fire aren’t the same. Kind of like that adage, you can’t go home again.

Hell Right

Hey
Yeah?
Tell ’em that story you were tellin’ meCouple boys clock out about 5:35
Tryna put a little hammer in their head
Standin’ in the liquor store, starin’ at a fifth
But they picked up a handle insteadHell right (hell right?)
Hell right (okay)Couple girls with their boots on got their Bluetooth on
T-shirts sayin’ “Go Sooners”
Then the girl from the small town took off the “Old Town”
Put on a little Hank Jr. (Thank God)
Hell right
She got all her rowdy friends comin’ over tonightHell right (hell right), hell right (hell right)
Everybody’s throwin’ down on a Friday night
Somewhere in America
There’s a bottle to burn and a fire to light
And you ain’t done nothin’ if you did it half way
If you gonna raise hell, then you better damn raise
Hell right (hell right)
Hell right (hell right)
Hell rightThere’s a guitar on the ground that was makin’ some sound
‘Til somebody pulled a hillbilly slip
Now there’s fog on the window, she never woulda kissed him
If he didn’t play a lick like thisHell right
Hell rightHell right (hell right), hell right (hell right)
Everybody’s throwin’ down on a Friday night
Somewhere in America
There’s a bottle to burn and a fire to light
And you ain’t done nothin’ if you did it half way
If you gonna raise hell, then you better damn raise
Hell right (hell right)
Hell right (hell right)
Hell rightNow it’s 7 a.m
Damn if there ain’t an empty handle on a square hay bale
Everybody’s passed out drunk, but when they wake up
They’re all gonna hurt like hell right
Yeah, boyHell right (hell right), hell right (hell right)
Everybody’s throwin’ down on a Friday night
Somewhere in America
There’s a bottle to burn and a fire to light
And you ain’t done nothin’ if you did it half way
If you gonna raise hell, then you better damn raise
Hell right, hell right, hell right

Nobody But You because I don’t have to look back and wonder who I love is married too, because Vic is married to me. We’ve been married 12 years. I remember like it was yesterday when he was here in Jersey and I was in Maine wondering if he wanted me to be part of his life as much as wanted him to be in mine.

Nobody But You

Don’t have to leave this town to see the world
‘Cause it’s something that I gotta do
I don’t wanna look back in thirty years
And wonder who you’re married to
Wanna say it now, wanna make it clear
For only you and God to hear
When you love someone, they say you set ’em free
But that ain’t gonna work for me

I don’t wanna live without you
I don’t wanna even breathe
I don’t wanna dream about you
Wanna wake up with you next to me
I don’t wanna go down any other road now
I don’t wanna love nobody but you
Looking in your eyes now, if I had to die now
I don’t wanna love nobody but you (you)

All the wasted days, all the wasted nights
I’ll blame it all on being young
Got no regrets ’cause it got me here
But I don’t wanna waste another one
I’ve been thinking about what I want in my life
It begins and ends the same
If I had to choose what I couldn’t lose
There’d only be one thing

I don’t wanna live without you
I don’t wanna even breathe
I don’t wanna dream about you
Wanna wake up with you next to me
I don’t wanna go down any other road now
I don’t wanna love nobody but you
Looking in your eyes now, if I had to die now
I don’t wanna love nobody but you (you)
I don’t wanna love nobody but you (you)

I wanna say it now, wanna make it clear
For only you and God to hear

I don’t wanna live without you (I don’t wanna live)
I don’t wanna even breathe
I don’t wanna dream about you
Wanna wake up with you next to me (next to me)
I don’t wanna go down any other road now
I don’t wanna love nobody but you

(I don’t wanna love nobody)
Looking in your eyes now, if I had to die now
I don’t wanna love nobody but you (you)
I don’t wanna love nobody (you)
I don’t wanna love nobody but you (you)

Came Here to Forget just so I’m clear … I wasn’t looking for rewinds from my ex. But it was very challenging getting past the damage of thirty years. I wasn’t confident and dating was terrifying. John had browbeat me for years. I never imagined any one would love me again.

I would sit on a bar stool just like in the video, drinking to forget. Drinking to I couldn’t walk and dialing the phone… wondering who to call and then realizing there wasn’t anyone to call…Those nights locking myself in the car and sleeping it off before even trying to drive. Then the mad dash looking for a place to empty a really full bladder. I could have easily gone on a no return spiral but I didn’t. Trust me. Don’t ever give up.

Came Here to Forget

Girl getting over him and I’m getting over her
The eyes have it made, ain’t gotta say a word
Misery loves company, that’s why it’s you and me
Buying each other drinks, back at the bar, thick as thieves
Stealing these little sips
Doing our best to make the best of the worst of it

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with him before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
You better keep on keeping it lit
‘Til we can’t remember
Can’t remember what we came here to forget

Go ahead and check your phone, like I’ve been checking mine
Nobody’s ex is texting for a rewind
Looks like it’s just me and you
Falling in love just enough to get us through
While we’re getting through

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with him before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
We better keep on keeping it lit
‘Til we can’t remember
Can’t remember what we came here to forget

Yeah, first of all we came here to forget
Looks like it’s just me and you
Falling in love just enough to get us through
While we’re getting through

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with you before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
You better keep on keeping it lit
‘Til we can’t remember
Can’t remember what we came here to forget

What we came here to forget
What we came here to forget
Baby, baby
That’s what we came here to forget

Remember when I chose Bobby Bare and I mentioned how Shel Silverstein (poet and songwriter} had wrote Bobby’s music. Well, amusingly, he also did Tequila Sheila for Mac Davis and Blake did a cover of the song on this album.
