…what would the song title be?

Caregiving and county songs have a lot in common. During a caregiving experience, you lose your money, your freedom and your patience. And, a country song is all about losing–the girl, the house, the pick-up truck.

So, what’s the title of your country song inspired by your caregiving experience?

To spur your creative juices, consider these country song titles:

* If You Don’t Believe I Love You Just Ask My Wife
* Timber, I’m Falling in Love
* You’re the First Time I Thought About Leaving
* Love Will Beat Your Brains Out
* You Can Tell the Man Who Boozes (By the Company He Chooses)
* I Think I’ll Drink Myself Into the Past
* I Got Tears in My Ears From Lying on My Back Crying on My Pillow Over You
* Sleeping Single in a Double Bed
* The Pint of No Return
* Your Negligee Has Turned to Flannel Nightgowns
* Guess My Eyes Were Bigger Than My Heart
* It Ain’t Love but It Ain’t Bad
* Thank God and Greyhound She’s Gone
* I’d Rather have a Bottle in Front of Me Than a Frontal Lobotomy
* Don’t Let That Doorknob Hit You (on the Way Out)
* You’re Out Doing What I’m Here Doing Without

“I Finally Found True Love!” @Denise? Too true!


My husband has dystonia so here’s what I came up with:

Just Because His Muscles Tense My Love Ain’t Jumped the Fence

Stand By Your Bedpan

Even Though You Gait Is Wobbly My Love is Straight and True


For better, for worse
We heard the preacher say.
In sickness and health
We promised on that day.
Now forty years have flown by
And we look back at them and sigh.
For better, for worse
