Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  “Songs that includes somebody famous in it.


From his 2006 album, Water and Bridges, Kenny Rogers’ The Last 10 Years chronicles life on the planet, milestones achieved, hardships and tragedies… and the lives lost by those who’d made their mark in history and our hearts.

Though I”m still not over the cosmetic surgery that forever changed his appearance, that voice is still classic Kenny.


  • Kenny Rogers has recorded 65 albums and sold over 165 million records.

  1. Nope, you can never mistake that voice! I had never heard this one before, though and it was a great one, thanks for sharing! 🙂

    We used to have some kind of Kenny Rogers restaurant here in a town I used to live in, but I never got the chance to try it before it closed its doors. Not sure if it was the chain you were referring to, just remember seeing his name on the building.
