M -- May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You

I have always sung Jim Reeves' May the Good Lord bless and keep you in a soft, solemn undertone, treating it with as much feeling and reverence as if it weren't a song, but a beautiful blessing, a prayer.






Jim himself sang this one with a sense of awe and humility, it has always seemed to me.



If you listen to the lyrics, I'm sure you'll feel that way too.

  2. I've always loved Jim Reeves. He was my grandmother's favorite country artist. The name "Gentleman Jim" fit him so well. His death in that plane crash was such a tragedy.
