Glenn Campbell


Yes, I am probably too young and I am probably
going to sound like a dweeb by saying as a young
girl, I loved Glenn Campbell.
You have to remember I was the baby of 7 and the oldest
was 23 years older than me, so I had a wide range of music
to listen to and love.
I loved Glenn Campbell.
Last week as I was rocking one of the TES babies I
was thinking of an old Glenn Campbell song
and how it could be a mantra to life.
It made me go home and look up the words:
LET ME BE A LITTLE KINDER
glen campbell
LET ME BE A LITTLE KINDER
LET ME BE A LITTLE BLINDER
TO THE FAULTS OF THOSE ABOUT ME
LET ME PRAISE A LITTLE MORE
LET ME BE WHEN I AM WEARY,
JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE CHEERY
THINK A LITTLE MORE OF OTHERS
AND A LITTLE LESS OF ME.
LET ME BE A LITTLE BRAVER
WHEN TEMPTATIONS BID ME WAIVER
LET ME STRIVE A LITTLE HARDER
TO BE ALL THAT I SHOULD BE.
LET ME SERVE A LITTLE BETTER
THOSE THAT I AM STRIVING FOR
LET ME BE A LITTLE MEEKER
WITH THE BROTHER THAT IS WEAKER
THINK A LITTLE MORE OF OTHERS
AND A LITTLE LESS OF ME.
Is this not perfect lessons to live by?
It is my song of the week,
going to sing it in my head every time
I start to think I am better, that I don't have
patience. I am going to smile as I hear
Glenn Campbell sing in my head.

  1. You missed the boat ... should have went with this one instead ....

    Well I really don't mind the rain
    And a smile can hide all the pain
    But your down when you're riding the train that's taking the long way
    And I'll dream of the things I'll do
    With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe
    There'll be a load of compromisin'
    On the road to my horizon
    But I'm gonna be where the lights are shining on me .......

    (EVERYONE TOGETHER)

    Like a rhinestone cowboy
    Riding out on a horse in a star spangled rodeo
    Rhinestone cowboy
    Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know ...................
