Cowboy Take Me Away…I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing – MMMM

We’re in the final week of February – where has the time gone?!  Princess Nagger is very happy she’s off school today and tomorrow, and even happier school will be coming to a close just over three months from now.  Only three months!   Which means I better buckle down and get done what I need to around  the house that I can’t when she’s here shadowing my every move.  You know, like clearing out old toys that she doesn’t play with.  She has, after all, inherited the pack-rat trait from me.  Ahem.

Being that it’s Monday and still the month of February, and even though Valentine’s Day was last week, it’s still the Month of Love.  Which means sharing the love with love songs via Monday’s Music Moves Me.  I love to share.  Get it?  Love.    So for this week’s continuing love-fest, I’ve decided to show some love to the .  Lord knows they need it.  is a favorite of mine – listen and see why:

Cowboy Take Me Away Lyrics
Dixie Chicks

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly

I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of blue bonnets
And a blanket made of stars

Oh it sounds good to me

I said cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to Heaven above
And closer to you
Closer to you

I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon
And not see a building standing tall

I wanna be the only one
For miles and miles
Except for maybe you
And your simple smile

Oh it sounds good to me
Yes it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to Heaven above
And closer to you
Closer to you

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
Oh it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to Heaven above
And closer to you
Closer to you

Closer to you

Cowboy take me away

Closer to you

.

And, since I seem to have been sharing the love for all country tunes lately, I decided I better give some love to another of my favorite groups, .  Seeing on American Idol (who is doing a surprisingly good job as a judge – my doubts have been vanquished) reminded me of another of my favorite songs, I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing:

I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing lyrics
Aerosmith

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you’re far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Where every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

Don’t wanna close my eyes, I don’t wanna fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you baby and I don’t wanna miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
I’d still miss you baby and I don’t want to miss a thing

Lying close to you feeling your heart beating
And I’m wondering what you’re dreaming
Wondering if it’s me you’re seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we’re together
I just wanna stay with you in this moment forever, forever and ever

I don’t wanna close my eyes, I don’t wanna fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you baby and I don’t wanna miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
{ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/a/aerosmith-lyrics/i-don_t-want-to-miss-a-thing-lyrics.html }
I’d still miss you baby and I don’t want to miss a thing

I don’t wanna miss one smile, I don’t wanna miss one kiss
I just wanna be with you, right here with you, just like this
I just want to hold you close, feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment for all the rest of time

Don’t wanna close my eyes, don’t wanna fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you baby and I don’t wanna miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
I’d still miss you baby and I don’t want to miss a thing

I don’t wanna close my eyes, I don’t wanna fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you baby and I don’t wanna miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
I’d still miss you baby and I don’t want to miss a thing

I don’t wanna close my eyes, I don’t wanna fall asleep
Yeah, I don’t wanna miss a thing


Enjoy your Monday!

  2. The Dixie Chicks don’t get enough credit. They play the fastest fiddle since Earl Scruggs, seriously good musicians.
    Steven Tyler was my first high school band crush. I don’t think I’ve been the same since I first heard Walk This Way.
    3 months is a long time to a kid, or to anyone waiting for sunny weather. What did you think of last night’s surprise snow storm?

  3. Time flies by so fast it leaves my head spinning! One of these weeks I’m gonna get in on this meme. I just can’t get into the Dixie Chicks, but I’m always happy to hear Aerosmith! Happy Monday.

  4. I love both of these picks! My oldest has it down to how many days til graduation; 100! Unbelievable that she’s that close to being done. Have a wicked lovely day!

  5. I enjoyed both songs, and must say, I never heard either one before. I had never heard of Steven Tyler until AI. But you have to remember I’m a GG.

  6. Great picks today, mama! As you know, I’m not the biggest fan of country music, but I really do like the Dixie Chicks. I just love the lead singer’s voice and their overall sound. And that Aerosmith song just rocks, but it always reminds me of that scene from The Sweetest Thing and that’s just wrong. lol Have you ever seen movie? So funny! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0253867/

    Thanks for the MM shout out! xox 🙂

  7. I’ve only listen to Dixie Chicks on this meme, but it’s a good introduction to them. They sing well.

    Love Aerosmith on this song! gosh I used to belt it out all the time!

    Have a joyful week!

  8. We’re in the last week of February already?!?!? Holy mother of pearl.

    Love Aerosmith. The Dixie Chicks, not so much (I’m afraid I’m a rock ‘n’ roll animal).

  9. Hi Stacy,

    Love your song choices this week. I think I belt out almost all the Chicks’ songs. That Aerosmith certainly brings me back.

    As for the toy clearing, perhaps you could do this with your princess? Donate the toys so she can feel good about what she has?

  10. I’ve heard about Dixie Chicks but I haven’t listened to this song yet. I will check it on YouTube. But I love the one by Aerosmith. One of my favs actually.

    Happy MM!

  11. LOL my doubts on Steven Tyler have disappeared too ha ha ha, love Stevie on Idol! And Dixie Chicks is just awesome, love ur pick this week have a terrific week ahead! :D:D

  12. Sending {{{Hugs}}} from the Hop!

    Great choices, love them both. I feel like i’ve been really into Steven Tyler lately with him judging on American Idol and all. . . Anywho, great songs for today, i’ll probably be singing Cowboy Take Me Away for the rest of the day (it’s just one of those songs ya know?)

  13. I love Aerosmith 🙂 and this is one for the collection !

    First time hearing the Dixie Chicks .. and its a beautiful choice of song 🙂 the lead singer has a great voice … will definitely check out some of their other music.

    and is it just me or does she kinda remind you of the singer Pink ?

    have a great MM and a fab week ahead !!

  14. Love, love,love Cowboy Take Me Away. One of my favorites from Dixie Chicks. Always wanted to marry a cowboy,lol….didn’t work out that way.

  15. I keep trying to insist we celebrate Valentine’s Day, all month long. I can’t believe summer will be here someday. That means I need to start thinking about camp.

  18. I really wanted to watch the first video but due to copyright law, i cant…
    but I love love love the second one and Stevie has been awesome as a judge on AI.. loving him more!!

    Happy MM Stacy!

  19. I wanted to watch the first video but I can’t. It’s blocked in my country due copyright law. I saw Steven Tyler at American Idol but can’t remember his group! I love the song and I love the movie that starred Bruce Willis where this song was the theme song.

  20. Can I just say that I’ve had that damn song in my head since earlier today when I noticed your post title in my reader? Thanks. Cowboy taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake me awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

  21. What a great post! Fabulous music and I hear you regarding time getting away! Life has been crazy at our place too.

    I would love it if you could pop by and visit my blog some time. I host a musical meme on Sundays called Sunday Song. It would be great to have you join in with us!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.
