Blogging Mom's Challenge Day 16- Cry Baby

Day 16 — A song that makes you cry

Wow, this one was hard, I have so many songs that really move me, not always to tears, but they bring back tons of memories and emotions for me... the lyrics are meaningful and tell a powerful story.  Here are a few of my fave power ballads and sad/sappy songs from back in the day (try not to cry):

Crossroads by Bone Thugs n Harmony
Photograph by Nickelback
One Last Breath by Creed
Whiskey Lullaby by Brad Paisley
Leaving on a Jet Plane by John Denver
Every Rose Has It's Thorn by Poison
Have a Little Faith in Me by John Hiatt
This is War by Smile Empty Soul
Don't Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith
Home by Chris Daughtry

I'm kind of all over the place with this one, but after I listed all those and listened to them again on YouTube, I realized none of them actually brought me to tears.  Sure they have a lot of meaning and take me back to a different place and time, but they didn't give me that tear-up kind of feeling.  So I thought some more, and remembered these two songs... they got me the first time I heard them, and back when I was in Army Basic Training, and when my hubby deployed to Iraq... and they still get to me when I hear them now... gives me the chills... and makes me so proud...

God Bless the U.S.A. by Lee Greenwood
