Tonight my husband is in Kansas, which means I've spent a lot of time on Youtube and Facebook. I've been looking up songs that connect me to various relatives and I've hit a stone wall with this one. Seriously, there seems to be no Internet info on it.
It's the one song that stands out as "our song" for me and Cliff. I know he remembers the song, but he has never recalled why it is special. I do, because women remember these things.
Usually if you are looking for a song, it's on Youtube. A simple search finds it. For some reason this one was difficult.
I'd love to tell you why this one is so meaningful to me, but it would embarrass my children... or maybe it would make them proud, who knows. I think it would make my son proud and embarrass my daughter.
But I digress.
Here, for your enjoyment, is "You Ain't No Better Than Me". There's another song tacked onto the end of it... just go ahead and stop the video when that starts, if you made it that far.
I remember all the words to this song, but this part is my favorite:
Why do you strut around town just a-puttin' me down when you ain't no better than me.
You stay on the run just a-waggin' your tongue, when you ain't no better than me.
There's a little something you should know, and I'm just the one to tell you so.
You put your britches on one leg at a time, and that's the very same way that I do mine...
And so it goes. When I think about all the romantic songs that people consider "our song", I have to laugh. We've been married almost forty-six years, and this is ours.
What do you consider "your song"?
