This song is a song that reminds me of the small town that I come from. My friends spend a lot of time driving backroads with the windows down and spending Friday nights at the football games. It says in the song, "proud of where you come, it's your last name" and that couldn't be more true about a small town.
I know that this song is maybe for an older married couple but this song reminds me of my boyfriend, Jakob. I have been through a lot in my life that no one truly knows but him. He originally started out being my best friend and it has turned into a relationship.
This song brings so many memories back! My grandparents would sing this song to me when I was younger every time I visited their house! Now today they sing it to their great grandkids which are my cousins, I feel as if its a family tradition to pass this song on to the younger kids in my family!
This song reminds me of my best friend Lucy. She has been my best friend since second grade and been there through everything. She moved to Princeville freshmen year and it was hard but no matter how far and how busy we have always remained true friends and best friends.
I haven't always had that one friend group I've always been with but when I met my group I knew right away that I could trust them and they would be here for me though anything. I have made so many memories with these people and frankly they are boys. Boys cause way less drama and are willing to stick up for you no matter who it is.
Last summer I went through something that changed my life and my outlook. From that break-up I learned to not let one person control who you are. Although I was extremely upset about the situation, I began to have a more positive attitude about it. I wanted what was best for him and I wanted to wish good upon him.
I personally do not have a lot on common with my dad, but when my parents were going through a divorce we seemed to have this song in common. Every Wednesday and every other weekend he would pick me up and pop this CD in the radio so we could sing it together and laugh. This would take our minds off of the situation that was going on.
I can always remember driving in the car with my mother or grandmother listening to this song as it played on the radio. Sitting in the backseat as a little girl bobbing my head because I didn't fully know the words then. Now that I do know the words and still to this day my mom will play it on her radio and we will sing the song as loud as we can. The meaning behind it that my mom and I shared is no matter where you end up in life you can always come back to your home and be alright.
