I just bought Tim McGraw's new CD, "Two Lanes of Freedom". While I was listening to it, I realized that one of the songs, "The Book of John", was about a scrapbook!

"and they almost tossed it out!"


And the King will tell them, when you did it to one of the least of these,you were doing it to me.

I just bought this CD last night and was thinking to come here and say the same thing! I loved the song. I wonder if Faith scraps.

Good question! I can only imagine what her scrapbook room would look like if she did!

Love it!
I hadn't heard it, so I had to go give it a listen.

Awww, those Nashville songwriters really know how to get your heart moved to tears. What a wonderful song!

That's great! I love Faith Hill. I'll have to ask my MIL if she has the new album of Tim's.

Lyrics

Book of John

We were sittin' round the supper table
And the buzz of the Frigidaire (ETA)
Was the only sound til Mama laid down
A book she found upstairs
It was covered in dust in the back of the closet
Goodwill box
We almost tossed it out
We could've lost all those memories

There was a picture of Mama in the pourin' rain
Ticket stubs to a Braves game
Silver Star and a baggage claim
From Hanoi, Vietnam
There was a picture of 'em crawlin' on Grandpa
Leather skin from a baseball
We laughed and cried
Told stories all night long
From the Book of John

Now the pot of coffee's almost gone
As we turn another page
Climbin' on him like a jungle gym
Watchin' his hair turn grey
All the Polaroids are just reminders
You can't hold life in a three-ring binder
But we flipped on through 'em anyway

There's a picture of his sister
Taken mid-July
On the steps of the church
Pullin' at his tie
Hair still wet from gettin' baptized
A brand new blue suit on
An old set of keys to his Chevrolet
A crumpled up receipt for a wedding ring
We watched ourselves grow up there in his arms
In the Book of John

That sun came up
We're wide awake
Head to toe in black and grey
A long, black Lincoln waitin' down the drive
He was father, son, husband and friend
I still flip through it every now and then
When I need just a few words of advice
It's almost like he's not really gone
And I know one day I'll be passin' on
The Book of John

Just an FYI as I know the lyrics online are being given wrong.

It's Frigidaire - the refrigerator. NOT 'frigid air'. I don't think very cold air makes a buzzing sound.

*kaleidoscope*, thanks for the heads up, I haven't heard the song yet and thought the buzz of the frigid air was weird! I haven't heard the song yet. I like Tim, by the way, we are both from north Louisiana, he grew up just east of me and someone I grew up with lives in his hometown now.

Yeah... it took me a minute to realize what it was supposed to be.
