so had a bunch of folks over, had bbq, it was swell

August 4th 2003 I had surgery, and they removed the testicle, then did tests after to see if the cancer spread

August 6th, 2003, I found out it had, and I would have to do chemo or radiation, or die.

Well, I had a party, cause that was a year ago, and is now past.

Tim McGraw has a song out now about it.

He said I was in my early forties

with a lot of life before me
when a moment came that stopped me on a dime
and I spent most of the next days
looking at the x-rays
Talking bout the options
and talking bout sweet time
I asked him when it sank in
that this might really be the real end
how's it hit you when you get that kinda news
man what'd you do

and he said
I went sky diving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named BluManchu
and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.

He said I was finally the husband
that most the time I wasn't
and I became a friend a friend would like to have
and all the sudden going fishin
wasn't such an imposition
and I went three times that year I lost my dad
well I finally read the good book
and I took a good long hard look
at what I'd do if I could do it all again

and then
I went sky diving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named BluManchu
and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.

Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about
what'd you do with it what did you do with it
what did I do with it
what would I do with it?

Sky diving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named BluManchu
and then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I watched an eagle as it was flying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.



well, I've B.A.S.E. Jumped, so I don't need to sky dive
I'v ridden team penning, but never bulls

that kinda leaves me with the "Love Deeper" and "Spoke Sweeter"
and I am trying those real hard like. Sometimes I forget, but I keep trying.


and really, I want to spend more time with my friends.
