Going through hell

Geek Fun, Random

For some Friday perspective, we’re going country!

Times are still tough.  Some of us are slogging through jobs that we’d like to change, and some of us have the tougher slog to find a job.   If you find yourself in a tough job situation (or a tough life situation) it often helps to remember that this too shall pass. 

I’m a Texan by birth, and I admit that I still listen to country music.  One thing country music does well is to create a keep on fighting vibe.  So if you are going through hell and need a shot of courage, consider the song lyrics of the Rodney Atkins song, “If you’re going through hell”.   Don’t slow down, keep on going and you might get out before the devil even knows you’re there!

Check it out on YouTube if you haven’t heard the music before.

Well you know those times
When you feel like there’s a sign there on your back
Says I don’t mind if ya kick me
Seems like everybody has
Things go from bad to worse
You’d think they can’t get worse than that
And then they do

You step off the straight and narrow
And you don’t know where you are
Use the needle of your compass
To sew up your broken heart
Ask directions from a genie
In a bottle of Jim Beam
And she lies to you
That’s when you learn the truth

If you’re going through hell
Keep on going, don’t slow down
If you’re scared, don’t show it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you’re there

Well I been deep down in that darkness
I been down to my last match
Felt a hundred different demons
Breathing fire down my back
And I knew that if I stumbled
I’d fall right into the trap that they were laying, yeah

But the good news
Is there’s angels everywhere out on the street
Holding out a hand to pull you back up on your feet
The one’s that you’ve been dragginig for so long
You’re on your knees
You might as well be praying
Guess what I’m saying

If you’re going through hell
Keep on going, don’t slow down
If you’re scared don’t show it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you’re there

Yeah, if you’re going through hell
Keep on moving, face that fire
Walk right through it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you’re there

If you’re going through hell
Keep on going, don’t slow down
If you’re scared don’t show it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you’re there
