I suppose it comes from my passion for cheese grits but I do love a good country love song. Eric Church sings about the kind of lovin’ that’s worth having and let’s face it- it’s the kind of love that’s really worth giving. Yep, that’s loving someone like Jesus does.
Of course someone else’s loving won’t keep Satan away but this song certainly speaks to that amazing love of someone staying by your side through your own ugliness. Like Jesus.
Even if country is not your speed, give a listen.
I’m a long gone Waylon song gone by,
I’m a backroads sinner at a tent revival,
She believes in me like she believes her bible,
And loves me like Jesus does.
I’m a left foot leaning on a suped up Chevy,
I’m a good ol’ boy, drinking whiskey and rye on the levee,
But she carries me, when my sings make me heavy,
And she loves me like Jesus does.
All the crazy in my dreams,
Both my broken wings,
Every single piece of everything I am,
Yeah, she knows the man I ain’t,
She forgives me when I can’t,
And the devil man, he don’t stand a chance,
Cause she loves me like Jesus does.
Always thought she’d give up on me one day,
Wash her hands of me, leave me staring down some runway,
Yeah, I thank God each night, and twice on Sunday,
That she loves me like Jesus does.
