James Wesley - Real

Song Title : Real | Artist/Band : James Wesley
Five-hundred channels and there ain't much on tonight
Except reality shows about some folk's so-called lives
A pretty girl cries 'cause she don't get a rose
But she'll find love next year on her own show

And they call that real

Real is a hand you hold fifty-seven years
Real is a band of gold tremblin' with fear
It's the first long tear down an old man's face, watchin' his angel slippin' away
His heart's so broke, it's never gonna heal

I call that real

Where I live, housewives don't act like that
And the survivors are farmers in John Deere hats
Our amazin' race is beatin' the check
Prayin' that the bank ain't ran it through yet

Real, like too much rain fallin' from the sky
Real, like the drought that came around here last July
It's the damn boll weevils and the market and the weeds, the prayer they're sayin' when they plant the seeds
And the chance they take to bring us our next meal

I call that real

Real, like a job you lose 'cause it moves to Mexico
Like a mama and a baby with no safe place to go

Like a little dream-house with a big old foreclosed sign
Like a flag-draped coffin and a twenty-one gun goodbye

I call that real
Man, I call that real
Oh, I call that real

I think this is one of the BEST country songs in a very long time. People have forgotten what is REAL. This song reminds us and I hope it makes alot of people think about what is REALly important! James Wesley has a beautiful voice and the emotion can be heard in every word!!!

I know a lot about what this song is saying. I grew up/still live on a farm and we have to deal with weather, market, bugs, and money. I have also had to deal with my only brother leaving for Iraq twice and each time someone from his unit got killed.

I LOVE this song. I have grown up farming in a small town in Western KY, where farming is all we know. I've seen great years and then ive seen my family struggle. I really appreciate the realness of this song!

Great song. Love the lyrics. Totally agree with Eric. Some people are forgetting how you are supposed to live your life, and that there are bigger losses than not being chosen out of 12 other beautiful girls to marry a shallow guy.

I am not a farmer, I am not in the army, but I have the utmost respect for them..

My friend lent me a cd with this song on it.. I've listened to it countless times. And it never gets old. I don't understand how ppl obsess over the reality show bullshit. Its useless garbage.

I'm from bancroft ontario, I'm a carpenter raising a child on my own. my fiancé passed away while giving birth.. I call that real
