This Ain’t Nothin’ — This Friday’s Song

This Friday’s song is “This Ain’t Nothin” by Craig Morgan. This 2010 song has always been a personal favorite. In the song, when a reporter asks an old man about the tornado that has just destroyed his home, the man recounts some of the people he has lost during his life – a father, a brother, a best friend, and, most recently, his wife of fifty years – and explains that losing a measly house “ain’t nothin’” by comparison. Unlike his deep-down emotional bruises, the rubble in which he stands “ain’t nothin’ time won’t erase” and “ain’t nothin’ money can’t replace.”

He said I learned at an early age,

There’s things that matter and there’s things that don’t

So if you’re waiting here for me to cry,

I hate to disappoint you boy, but I won’t

Then he reached down in the rubble and picked up a photograph

Wiped the dirt off of it with the hand that he still had

He put it to his lips and said man she was something

But this ain’t nothin’

The song is a great reminder to always keep your perspective and understand what is truly important in your life.

Hope you enjoy!
