Love Me if You Can

I found these lyrics off the web so I'm not sure if they're exactly right. I heard this song today and thought it was very close to how so many people I know and have heard talk actually feel about what's happening in our country and with our dealings with other countries.


Love me if you can by Toby Keith

Sometimes I think that war is necessary.
Every night I pray for peace on Earth.
I hand out my dollars to the homeless.
But believe that every able soul should work.

My father gave me my shotgun
that I'll hand down to my son,
try to teach him everything it means.

(chorus)
I'm a man of my convictions.
Call me wrong, call me right.
But I bring my better angels to every fight.
You may not like where I'm going,
but you sure know where I stand.
Hate me if you want to, love me if you can.

I stand by my right to speak freely.
But I worry 'bout what kids learn from TV.
And before all of debatin' turns to angry words and hate,
sometimes we should just agree to disagree.

And I believe that Jesus looks down here and sees us,
and if you ask him he would say

(chorus)
I'm a man of my convictions.
Call me wrong, call me right.
But I bring my better angels to every fight.
You may not like where I'm going,
but you sure know where I stand.
Hate me if you want to, love me if you can.

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
