Right on the Money

jackson-wedding-songWell let’s begin with the day I met her,
How fast this good old boy’s world got better!
Sky got bluer, the grass got greener…
Just the first few seconds after I first seen her.Alpine lake 2012Like my favorite song on a new set of speakers,
My best old jeans and my broke in sneakers.
A home run pitch floating right down the middle,
The sweet music made when the bow hits the fiddle.11796429_134358050236086_2459724792358856154_nShe’s right on the money,
She goes direct to my heart.
And when it comes to loving me…
She’s everything, I mean bulls eye perfect,
She’s right on the money!31480961655_8df326015b_bShe’s no red lights when I’ve overslept,
She’s a three point jump shot that’s nothing but net!
A hand full of aces, the dealer’s done dealing,
I’m forever on a roll, that’s how she’s got me feeling!33101381953_97e49b128f_zShe’s right on the money,
She goes direct to my heart.
And when it comes to loving me…
She’s everything, I mean bulls eye perfect,
She’s right on the money!

I ain’t much around the house, but I aim to please.
There’s absolutely no reason to doubt her,
When she says, I wouldn’t last ten minutes without her.

Married my girl on November 17, 2012 – Right on the Money by Alan Jackson is our song

My sweet girl took me to my first concert at the

Stockton Convention Center to hear Alan Jackson wp2270039

it was the day Mike’s dad died and Alan sang:

“Small Town Southern Man”

Born the middle son of a farmer
And a small town Southern man
Like his daddy’s daddy before him
Brought up workin’ on the land
Fell in love with a small town woman
And they married up and settled down
Natural way of life if you’re lucky
For a small town Southern man

First there came four pretty daughters
For this small town Southern man
Then a few years later came another
A boy, he wasn’t planned
Seven people livin’ all together
In a house built with his own hands
Little words with love and understandin’
From a small town Southern man

[Chorus:]
And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
(He) was always proud of what he had
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
(Raised on the ways and gentle kindness)
(Of a small town Southern man)

Callous hands told the story
For this small town Southern man
He gave it all to keep it all together
And keep his family on his land
Like his daddy, years wore out his body
Made it hard just to walk and stand
You can break the back
But you can’t break the spirit
Of a small town Southern man
