Zac Brown Band with "Toes" #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.”

~­­­­­ August Wilson

I was walking in a straight line going towards a cliff. No one could tell me where to go, what was right or wrong, how to feel because I knew my direction, where I was going, who I was, I knew my soul and to hell with everyone else! Stubborn, self-righteous, egotistical and completely wrong that is right, that was me. “Was” being the important word. I truly believe that the path to heaven is right through the middle of hell! Maybe some of us get lost and stay there but it is too HOT for me.

On a side bar, there were people that entered my life today, all day long and were kind and it felt good to be around them. There was also that demon FEAR trying to swallow me whole but I reconciled that the next step would not be over the cliff just yet and I didn’t need to be saved.  I am amazed at humanity and the decency some people exhume.

That said, on my way home I heard a little bit of heaven and it brought a smile to my face. Music can encourage tears, a smile and ultimately the renewal of one’s spirit.
The song is titled “Toes” and sung by Zac Brown Band. The video was published on Jul 9, 2009 by Zac Brown Band. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight...

"Toes" (3)

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today. Life is good today.

Well, the plane touched down just about 3 o'clock
And the city's still on my mind
Bikinis and palm trees danced in my head
I was still in the baggage line
Concrete and cars
Are their own prison bars
Like this life I'm living in
But the plane brought me farther.
I'm surrounded by water
And I'm not going back again

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today. Life is good today.

Adios and vaya con dios
Yeah, I'm leaving GA
And if it weren't for tequila and pretty senoritas
I'd have no reason to stay
Adios and vaya con dios
Yeah, I'm leaving GA
Gonna lay in the hot sun and roll a big fat one
And grab my guitar and play

Four days flew by
Like a drunk Friday night
As the summer drew to an end
They can't believe
That I just couldn't leave
And I bid adieu to my friends
Because my bartender -- she's from the islands
Her body's been kissed by the sun
And coconut replaces the smell of the bar
And I don't know if it's her or the rum

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today. Life is good today.

Adios and vaya con dios
A long way from GA
Yeah, and all the muchachas -- they call me "big poppa" when I throw pesos their way
Adios and vaya con dios
A long way from GA
Someone do me a favor and pour me some Jaeger
[Another version: "Hey, boss, do me a favor and pass me the Jaeger"]
And I'll grab my guitar and play

Adios and vaya con dios
Going home now to stay
The senoritas don't care-o when there's no dinero
[Another version: "'Cause senoritas don't care-o when there's no dinero"]
I got no money to stay
[Another version: "You got no money to stay"]
Adios and vaya con dios
Going home now to stay
Just gonna drive up by the lake
[Another version: "I'm just gonna kick it on the lake"]

I put my ass in a lawn chair, toes in the clay
[Another version: "With my ass in a lawn chair, toes in the clay"]
Not a worry in the world, a PBR on the way

Life is good today. Life is good today.

I hope you like this selection and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support.

Peace and Love always
