Made In America – Am I The Only One – Happy 4th of July! (MMMM)

Happy !  I’m sure grills have been prepped, fireworks collected (unless you’re in Iowa where we’re visiting and are limited to waving around sparklers.  Yay.) and plans have been made for celebratory fun.

Since it’s Monday, it’s also time for Monday’s Music Moves Me – and I am honored and privileged to have been asked to join our fearless leaders in hosting this shindig each week.  Since I’m on vacation until next week, please bear with me as I’m trying to be a good house-guest and sister and daughter and not be glued to my laptop – which means I won’t be able to hop around and check out your songs as efficiently as I’d like to – but I’ll try to get around…ahem.

This week there is no theme, but since it is the 4th of July, I thought I’d go on the Patriotic side – how about we get patriotic with ’s song, “”:

Made In America Lyrics
Toby Keith

My old man’s that old man,
Spent his life livin’ off the land,
Dirty hands and a clean soul.
Breaks his heart seein’ foreign cars,
Filled with fuel that isn’t ours
And wearin’ cotton he didn’t grow

He’s got the red, white, and blue flyin’ high on the farm
Semper fi tattooed on his left arm
Spends a little more at the store for a tag in the back that says U.S.A.
Won’t buy nothin’ that he can’t fix,
With WD40 and a craftsman wrench
He ain’t prejudice he’s just, made in America

His wife, she’s that wife that decorates on the 4th of July
But says “every day’s independence day”
She’s golden rule, teaches school,
Some folks say it isn’t cool but she says the pledge of allegiance anyway.

Got the red, white, and blue flyin’ high on the farm
Semper fi tattooed on his left arm
Spends a little more at the store for a tag in the back that says U.S.A.
Won’t buy nothin’ that he can’t fix,
With WD40 and a craftsman wrench
He ain’t prejudice he’s just, made in America

Born in the heartland, raised up a family
Of King James and Uncle Sam

Got the red, white, and blue flyin’ high on the farm
Semper fi tattooed on his left arm
Spends a little more at the store for a tag in the back that says U.S.A.
Won’t buy nothin’ that he can’t fix,
With WD40 and a craftsman wrench
He ain’t prejudice he’s just, made in America

Made in America
Made in America

My old man’s that old man,
He’s made in America

America!

And, because it is a holiday and time for some fun, let’s have a little fun tonight with :

Lyrics
Dierks Bentley

Well it was Friday in the P.M. and just like every weekend, I was ready to throw down.
Yeah I get a little tore up, so I call my bros up to meet me out on town.
Well Wild Man Willie said “I’d like to really” but Idol was on TV. And Ray had a date with his wife and they quit drinking
but he didn’t tell me.

Am I the only one who wants to have fun tonight?
is there anybody out there who wants to have a cold beer, kick it ’til the morning light?
If I have to raise hell all by myself
I will, but y’all that ain’t right.
It’s time to get it on,
Am I the only one who wants to have fun tonight?

Well I was flyin’ solo down at Silverado’s,
the joint lookin’ like a morgue.
When this country cutie with a rock on roll booty came struttin’ in through the door.
Yelled “Who wants to dance?” and fired up the band with a Franklin and a shot of Patron.
She looked right at me, said “What’s gonna be? Are you gonna let me to party alone?”

Am I the only one who wants to have fun tonight?
Is there anybody out there who wants to have a cold beer, kick it ’til the morning light?
If I have to raise hell all by myself
I will, but y’all that ain’t right.
Yeah it’s time to get it on, am I the only one who wants to have fun tonight?

Come on come on
Get your good time on
Let’s have a little fun tonight

I echo that sentiment – let’s have a little fun tonight, shall we?  Have a Safe and Happy 4th of July!

I usually participate in Music Monday, hosted by non other than the lovely Lady Java, but since I won’t be able to hop around today, I’m not linking up – I’ll resume after we get back from vacation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go check it out and hop around to some great music!

I’m also joining another fun BlogHop – ! If you’re a new follower, please leave your link so I can follow you back!

 

Since we’ve been on vacation for a week and have a week yet to go, fret not – if you follow me during this time, I will get around to following you…worst case scenario it’ll be next week when I’m back to reality and back at my computer for hours on end…you know, ‘normal’.  Just be sure to leave me a comment, as I’ll be running down my comments list as a priority to do some payback visits as soon as I can.
