Guy Clark, Stuff That Works Lyrics...

There' a reason to ths post, as I normally don't post lyrics...

Well, I took a lot in prayer, felt better for it, have had many blessings and answers, and that's always a good thing, actually, it's the best medicine that heals any wounds....

Anyway, after taking a walk, I come back to find that there are two movies on tv - one, is Honey Bears favorites (watch it because I love him) and the other, I never have watched from beginning to end....I stopped on this channel AGAIN, when this really cool song was playing in the's The Rookie, with Dennis Quaid.

The song is by Guy Clark, Stuff That Works Lyrics:

Kinda says a lot to me right now:

I got an ol’ blue shirt And it suits me just fine I like the way it feels So I wear it all the time I got an old guitar It won’t ever stay in tune I like the way it sounds In a dark and empty room
I got an ol’ pair of boots And they fit just right I can work all day And I can dance all night I got an ol’ used car And it runs just like a top I get the feelin’ it ain’t Ever gonna stop

Stuff that works, stuff that holds up The kind of stuff you don’t hang on the wall Stuff that’s real, stuff you feel The kind of stuff you reach for when you fall
I got a pretty good friend Who’s seen me at my worst He can’t tell if I’m a blessing Or a curse But he always shows up When the chips are down That’s the kind of stuff I like to be around


I got a woman I love She’s crazy and paints like God She’s got a playground sense of justice She won’t take odds I got a tattoo with her name Right through my soul I think everything she touches Turns to gold


Actually, ALL the music in this movie is really good, this song just stuck out there with me...hmmmm :-)

In case you haven't watched it, although it IS an older movie, it's about a man, his dream, a wife that supports his dream, and one big amazing marriage! Great movie about two people who got it right despite the negatives, circumstances, situations, other people's opinions, etc. !
