My cranky back afforded me the opportunity to spend some time in front of the TV last night. More specifically, I got some quality viewing of CMT (Country Music Television). They premiered a new video last night for Kenny Chesney’s new song called “Who You’d Be Today”. Folks, if you have not seen it or heard it yet, it’s one of those songs that really moves the emotions. The video does a great job of putting his words to music by showing a young couple, images from September 11th and the war in Iraq.

I bet each of us can list the names of people we knew that died all to soon. This song was a reminder to me of some of those people and their memories. I am posting the lyrics to the song below. Keep an eye or ear out for the video or song so you can experience it for yourself. This post is dedicated to the memory of all of those people we have lost all to soon.


Who You’d Be Today – Kenny Chesney

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
Wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go
See your smile, I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
Still can’t believe your gone

It ain’t fair you died to young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All that I’ve been through
Just knowing, no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder, who you’d be today

Would you see the world
Would you chase your dreams
Settle down with a family
I wonder what would you name your babies
Someday’s the sky’s so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
And I know it might sound crazy

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know, I’ll see you again someday

Someday, someday
