Here's another one!

I woke up with the words "getting cards and letters from people I don't even know..." playing in my head. And, I thought, "'Rhinestone Cowboy'! There's another song with lyrics about letters!"

Oh, yes, I admit it...I know the words to Glen Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy." If you're not familiar with the 1970s song written by Larry Weiss, you can hear it on Glen Campbell's MySpace page.

Another letter song is Collin Raye's "Love, Me." It's about a grandpa who carries around a letter that the grandma wrote him years ago, and many lyrics sites online refer to it as "If You Get There Before I Do." It was written by Skip Ewing and Max T. Barnes. It starts out, "I read a note my grandma wrote back in nineteen twenty-three.
Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me."

I wonder how many love letters were sent and received last week...

Isn't it strange how we wake up with random thoughts. :) I woke up to a song in my head today.

Glad to see that you're still going strong with your letter writing! =)

I had just read your latest posting and was thinking of any other songs, when I got in the car to take the kids to school. As I started the car I heard these lyrics by the Beatles, "And then while I'm away, I'll write home everyday and I'll send all my loving to you" in their song "All my loving." Another song is "Home" by Michael Buble. "I've been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you. Each one a line or two. I'm fine,Baby. How are you? I would send them but I know that it's just not enough. My words are cold and flat and you deserve more than that"

The other day my daughter woke up singing "Hopelessly Devoted To You" from Grease.

You've been tagged. Head back to my blog if you need the rules.

Have a great day!
