My life is simply that. A weaving. We live in small town USA and I'm living a life I love…

Waitin’ On a Woman…

Have you heard the song by Brad Paisley… I love the lyrics. There is something about country music that makes a person feel at home. I love that they tell stories and the songs pull you in… Anyways, we just listened to it so I thought I’d post the lyrics in case you haven’t heard it. (In the video is one of our favorite actors… Andy Griffith)

Sittin’ on a bench at West Town Mall
He sat down in his overalls and asked me
”You waitin’ on a woman?”
I nodded yeah and said, ”How ’bout you?”
He said, ”Son since nineteen fifty-two I’ve been
Waitin’ on a woman.”

When I picked her up for our first date
I told her I’d be there at eight
And she came down the stairs at eight-thirty
She said, ”I’m sorry that I took so long
Didn’t like a thing that I tried on.”
But let me tell you son she sure looked pretty
Yeah, she’ll take her time but I don’t mind
Waitin’ on a woman.

He said, ”The wedding took a year to plan
You talk about an anxious man, I was nervous
Waitin’ on a woman.”
And then he nudged my arm like old men do
And said, ”I’ll say this about the honeymoon, it was worth it
Waitin’ on a woman.”

And I don’t guess we’ve been anywhere
She hasn’t made us late I swear
Sometimes she does it just ’cause she can do it
Boy it’s just a fact of life
It’ll be the same with your young wife
Might as well go on and get used to it
She’ll take her time ’cause you don’t mind
Waitin’ on a woman.

I’ve read somewhere statistics show
The man’s always the first to go
And that makes sense ’cause I know she won’t be ready
So when it finally comes my time
And I get to the other side
I’ll find myself a bench, if they’ve got any
I hope she takes her time, ’cause I don’t mind
Waitin’ on a woman.

Honey, take your time, cause I don’t mind
Waitin’ on a woman…

Some waiting’s good..
