Here is a selection of country songs lyrics about life and love, taken from various compositions.
Yeah, I know when it comes to country music, you either love it or hate it.
Some say country music is just some three chord songs of soppy lyrics about broken hearts, Jesus, two-timing men or honky-tonk bars.
