Here is #8 in a series of an occasional sharing of an “inspirational” song. We put “inspirational” in quotes because this will not necessarily be not in the traditional sense, like something you might sing in church. We welcome you to message us with what songs inspire you.

Kenny Rogers is known for, among other things, “story songs” like “The Gambler” and “Coward of the County.” This song, from his 1999 LP “She Rides Wild Horses,” isn’t as well known although it was written by Don Schlitz, whose first songwriting hit was “The Gambler.”

This song is all about perspective… but you have to listen all the way to the end to hear the message…
