31 Days of Random Questions – Day 12

What is a song that always makes you smile?
Built to Last by Heartland; it has a pretty melody and the lyrics remind me of my grandparents who will celebrate their 65-year anniversary in November. The chorus goes:


Here’s to the makers of things built to last
Like church bells and bridges, and baseball on grass
Like Ferguson tractors and Lucchese boots
My daddy’s old tools I still use
The pledge of allegiance, the stars and the stripes
The words in the Bible, the sun in the sky
And here’s to the twinkle in old married eyes
Still there after fifty years past
Here’s to the makers of things built to last

  1. Glad to read your 31 dayers. This song certainly cheers us up.

  2. Beautiful Day by U2 every time I hear it.

    And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
    After the flood all the colors came out
    It was a beautiful day
    Don’t let it get away
    Beautiful day
