He wrote this song and it was released in August 1994 as the second single from his album Who I Am. In late 1994, it became his ninth Number One hit on the Billboard country charts.

About Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson was born in the small town of Newnan, Georgia, on October 17, 1958. He grew up singing gospel music, both in church and at home with his family, and as a teenager he performed locally as part of a country duo. He left school to work and married his high-school sweetheart, Denise, who worked as an airline stewardess. In 1989, Jackson became the first artist signed to Arista’s new country division. Jackson’s debut album, Here in the Real World, was issued in 1990 and became a platinum-selling hit on the strength of four Top Five hits: the title cut, “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “Wanted,” and the first of many chart-toppers, “I’d Love You All Over Again.” He shot to full-fledged superstardom with the follow-up, 1991’s Don’t Rock the Jukebox, whose title track was an inescapable number one smash that year.

Livin’ on Love Lyrics

Alan Jackson

Two young people, without a thing
Say some vows and spread their wings
And settle with just what they need
Living on love
She don’t care ’bout what’s in style
She just likes the way he smile
It takes more than marvel and time
Living on love

Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothing ain’t worth a dime
It’s like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that’s what you’re thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking
It doesn’t take much, when you get enough
Living on love

Two old people, without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side on that front porch swing
Living on love

He can’t see anymore
She can barely sweep the floor
Hand in hand they walk through that door
Just living on love

Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothing ain’t worth a dime
It’s like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that’s what you’re thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking
It doesn’t take much, when you get enough
Living on love

Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothing ain’t worth a dime
It’s like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that’s what you’re thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking
It doesn’t take much, when you get enough
Living on love
No, It doesn’t take much, when you get enough
Living on love

God and Country Music Lyrics

George Strait

God and country music are like whiskey and a prayer
Like Johnny Cash’s arm around Billy Graham
God and country music
They both never change
You find ’em when you need ’em
Where you stand

There’s always lost in the found
And darkness in the I-saw-the-light
It’s living in the small towns
In some church and backroad honky tonk tonight

It’s a dance between the sin and the salvation
Come hell or high water
There’s two things still worth saving
God and country music
God and country music

God and country music
They both showed you the truth
Seen the low of the valley
And the highs of the mountains too
Folded hands and guitar strings
Jukebox preachers and angels singing
Call you like they knew ya
Between the hell and hallelujah

There’s always lost in the found
And darkness in the I-saw-the-light
It’s still living in the small towns
In some church and backroad honky tonk tonight

It’s a dance between the sin and the salvation
Come hell or high water
There’s two things still worth saving
God and country music
God and country music

There’s always lost in the found
And darkness in the I-saw-the-light
It’s still living in the small towns
In some church and backroad honky tonk tonight
It’s a dance between the sin and the salvation
Come hell or high water
There’s two things still worth saving

God and country music
God and country music
God and country music
God and country music

Kris Kristofferson Live Performance of His No. 1 Hit Song “For The Good Times”

For The Good Times” is a 1970 song written by Kris Kristofferson himself. He wrote the first verse and chorus in 1968 while driving from Nashville to the Gulf of Mexico, but he did not complete the tune and release it until 1970. Later that year, Ray Price recorded a version of the song which topped the U.S. country music charts and was awarded “Song Of The Year” by the Academy of Country Music. “For The Good Times” was Price’s fifth #1 single and spent a total of nineteen weeks on the country chart. Enjoy this great country song!

Kristoffer “Kris” Kristofferson (born June 22, 1936) is an American country music singer, songwriter, musician, and film actor. Born in Brownsville, Texas, he attended Pomona College, where he achieved a degree in literature and specialised in the poetry of Blake. Whilst at college, he published a series of short stories in Atlantic Monthly, and went on to win a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford.
It was in 1958, during his stay in England, that Kristofferson first performed his own music, under the pseudonym ‘Kris Carson’. After graduating from Oxford, Kristofferson served in the US army for five years and, upon being discharged, turned down a teaching post in order to pursue his music career in Nashville.

For the Good Times Lyrics

Kris Kristofferson

Don’t look so sad
I know it’s over
But life goes on
And this old world will keep on turning
Let’s just be glad
We had some time to spend together
There’s no need to watch the bridges
That were burning

Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body
Close to mine
Hear the whisper of the rain drops
Blowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me
One more time
For the good times

I’ll get along
You’ll find another
And I’ll be here
If you should find you ever need me
Don’t say a word about tomorrow
Or forever
There’ll be time enough for sadness
When you leave me

Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body
Close to mine
Hear the whisper of the rain drops
Blowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me
One more time
