At my father-in-law’s funeral everyone expected to hear the typical somber music you usually find – maybe Ava Maria or some religious music. So when Vince Gill’s voice started to be piped throughout the funeral home, most people were a bit surprised. I never have been a fan of country music, but this song made me cry. OK, so maybe it had something to do with being at the funeral of someone I loved, but those lyrics just got to me. I looked over at my mother-in-law who looked like she couldn’t decide between crying and laughing as they played their song. So here’s the song and its lyrics (and let’s see how long you can go without tearing up):

\”Look At Us\” – Vince Gill

Look at us
After all these years together
Look at us
After all that we’ve been through
Look at us
Still leaning on each other

If you want to see
How true love should be
then just look at us

Look at you
Still pretty as a picture
look at me
Still crazy over you
Look at us
Still believin’ in forever

Look at us
After all these years together
Look at us
After all that we’ve been through
Look at us
Still leaning on each other

In a hundred years from now
I know without a doubt
They’ll all look back and wonder how
We made it all work out

Chances are
We’ll go down in history
When they want to see
How true love should be
They’ll just look at us
