Today's Special Tune


Oakhurst Inn

July 29, 2022


Big fan of Mary Chapin Carpenter who I believe lives around Charlottesville. What a thrill it must have been for her to have a these female legends of country music join her in singing this song. Wow.


Show a little inspiration, show a little spark And show that things that drew me to you and stole my heart And tell me something I don't know instead of everything I do And look at me as if I mean something to you Our hearts are beating while we sleep, but while we're wide awake You know the world won't stop, and actions speak louder Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say Everything we got, we got the hard way


Show a little passion, baby, show a little style And show the knack for knowing when and the gift for knowing how And have a little trust in us when fear obscures the path You know we got this far, darling, not by luck, but by never turning back Some will call on destiny, but I just call on faith That the world won't stop, and actions speak louder Listen to your heart, to what your heart might say Everything we got, we got the hard way


Caught up in our little lives, there's not a lot left over I see what's missing in your eyes; you're searching for that field of clover So show a little inspiration, show a little spark Show the world a little light when you show it your heart We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder Listen to your heart, and your heart might say Everything we got, we got the hard (everything we got, we got the hard way) Everything we got, we got the hard way (Because the world won't stop) hang on, baby...


Another great message in this song:




I'm heading out without a tear I'm heading out without a fight Nothing like this empty road To take some trouble off my mind


Had enough of sad days Had enough of sleepless nights I only need a tank of gas Babe I'm going for a ride


Cause when I'm all alone on a midnight highway There's nothing like two hands on the wheel And the radio playing I Won't Back Down Baby that's about the way I feel


Might be gone a couple of hours Might be gone a couple of days I won't know til I turn around We'll have to see just how it plays


All the way down 81 I've got some friends in Nashville Atlanta it's been way too long By morning I'll make Asheville


Cause when I'm all alone on a midnight highway There's nothing like two hands on the wheel And the way the wind blows just before a rainstorm Baby that's about the way I feel


Don't know if you tried to call My phone ran out of signal I don't know if you miss me at all:


'Cause I'm out here all alone on a midnight highway And I've got both hands on the wheel Passing darkened towns the world's forgotten Baby that's about the way I feel Just a little speck on the far horizon Baby that's about the way I feel And I won't back down
