Stand By My Woman Man...

As a general rule, men don’t like the idea of going on marriage enrichment conferences or retreats. I think I have solved that issue. I have a handful of favorite classic country songs that I really like. The lyrics from those songs could be used as the basis of a male friendly marriage enrichment event. The sessions at the retreat would look like this:



Session #1
Daydreams about Night Things, by Ronnie Milsap

I'm having day dreams bout night things
In the middle of the after-noon
And while my hands make a living my mind's home loving you
I'm having day dreams about night thing
In the middle of the after-noon
And every night you make my daydreams come true


Session #2
Kiss an Angel Good Morning, by Charley Pride


Whenever I chance to meet
some old friends on the street
They wonder how does a man get to be this way
I've always got a smiling face
Anytime and any place
And everytime they ask me why
I just smile and say
You've got to
Kiss an angel good morning
and let you know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
and love her like the devil when you get back home


Session #3
I am a Stand by My Woman Man

At five o’ clock she knows I’ll soon be home.
She don't worry ‘bout me runnin' 'round,
'cause all of my good times are wating right there for me
and she knows where I'll be when the sun goes down.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
Our world turns around a little gold band,
and love leads us through life, hand in hand.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
We fall asleep at night thinking , ain't love grand.
That's why I'm a stand by my woman man
When she's down, she knows I'll be beside her.
'Cause I'm not just her lover, I'm her friend.
Our love keeps getting better and I'll gladly spend forever
standing by the woman who stands by her man.


Session #4
She’s Everything, by Brad Paisley

She's a yellow pair of running shoes
A holey pair of jeans
She looks great in cheap sunglasses
She looks great in anything
She's I want a piece of chocolate
Take me to a movie
She's I can't find a thing to wear
Now and then she's mood
And she's everything I ever wanted
And everything I need
I talk about her, I go on and on and on
'Cause she's everything to me


I think my marriage retreat will be a raging success. A lot of men like classic country music. Not all of the songs are about guys that get drunk and lose their wife and their truck. A lot of the songs have a great message. I don’t know how I am going to market my great idea yet, but I think about my marriage enrichment weekend for the future every time I listen to the classic country station! In the meantime men, choose to be a stand by your woman man!
