You may not know it, but I was once a country bumpkin and one of my favorite bands was Alabama. I saw them many many times and actually had the opportunity to talk with them on their tour bus. Anyhoo, here is a song that really defined my view of what NOT to do in M as a teen growing up. Never in a million years did I think I would be on the receiving end of it, but what you gonna do.

I'm gonna send this one out to Not2Fun and the other ladies at MB that find themselves at a crossroads...

Alabama - Lady Down On Love

Its her first night on the town since she was just eighteen, a lady down on
Love and out of hope and dreams.
The ties that once bound her now are broke away, and shes like a baby, just
Learning how to play.

She never thought that love could ever end so soon.
Her mind drifts back in time to a mid-summer moon when he asked her to marry
And she glady said o.k.
And a woman came to be from the girl of yesterday.

Now shes a lady down on love.
She needs somebody to gentley pick her up.
Shes got her freedom, but shed rather be bound to a man who would love her
And never let her down.

Well, I know a lady thats down on her love, cause I used to hold her and
Have that special touch.
But work took me a way from home late at nights, and I wasnt there when she
Turned out the lights.
Then both of us got lonely and I gave into lust, and she just couldnt live
With a man she couldnt trust.

Now shes a lady down on love.
She needs somebody to gently pick her up.
She's got her freedom, but shed rather be bound to man who would love her
And never let her down.
Now shes a lady down on love.

Lady Down On Love
