Today is Monday, which means it’s time for the Inspirational song of the week!
There are so many reasons I think this song is inspirational, the first of which is the INCREDIBLE rhythm of Jimmy Page’s guitar work……
Here are the words, provided by songlyrics.com
Ah caught you smiling at me,
That’s the way it should be,
Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine.
Ah all the good times we had,
I sang love songs so glad
Always smiling, never sad, so fine.
*As we walk down the country lanes,
I’ll be singing a song,
Hear me calling your name.
Hear the wind within the trees,
Telling Mother Nature ’bout you and me.
Well if the sunshines so bright,
Or on our way it’s darkest night
The road we choose is always right, so fine.
Ah can your love be so strong
When so many loves go wrong
Will our love go on and on and on and on and on and on?
My, my la de la come on now it ain’t too far,
Tell your friends all around the world,
Ain’t no companion like a blue eyed merle.
Come on now well let me tell you,
What you’re missing, missing, ’round them brick walls.
So of one thing I am sure,
It’s a friendship so pure,
Angels singing all around
My door so fine.
Yeah, ain’t but one thing to do
Spend my nat’ral life with you,
You’re the finest daughter I knew, so fine.
When you’re old and your eyes are dim,
There ain’t no old Shep gonna happen again,
We’ll still go walking down country lanes,
I’ll sing the same old songs,
Hear me call your name.
I have found it inspirational to think of love being like “leaves to a tree”, but in reality, that is a very good description of what love does.
And how about the part that says “The road we choose is always right, so fine” It’s a wonderful reminder that making a commitment to yourself is always a great idea. Good stuff!
And how about the part “So of one thing I am sure, it’s a friendship so pure, angels singing all around my door so fine.” Can you even imagine having so much happiness in your life that angels are singing all around your door? Go ahead and try……….see…………………… that’s what inspiration feels like
My family and I are having a very nice, relaxing Labor day weekend. I hope you and your family are as well.
