"Some People Change" as written by Michael Dulaney, Jason Sellers and Neil Thrasher....
His old man was a rebel yeller.
Bad boy to the bone he'd say,
"Can't trust a colored feller"
And he'd judge 'em by the tone of their skin.
And he was raised to think like his dad,
Narrow mind, full of hate,
On the road to nowhere fast,
Until the grace of god got in the way,
Then he saw the light and hit his knees and cried and said a prayer,
And rose up a brand new man, and left the old one right there.

Here's to the strong,
Thanks to the brave,
Don't give up hope,
Some people change.
Against all odds,
Against the grain,
Love finds a way,
Some people change.

She was born with her mothers habit,
Guess you could say it's in her blood,
She hates it that she's gotta have it,
She fills her glass up.
And she'd love to kill that bottle,
But all she could think about is a,
A better life, a second chance,
And everyone she's lettin' down.

She throws that bottle down.


Thank god for those who make it.
Let them be the love.

Some people change.

    General CommentI agree with y'all. This song really has the power to touch anybody who hears it and wants to listen. Especially because there's some sort of negative connotation with blacks and country, thinking that it's racist and only for whites. This song is truly inspirational. I love Kenny (but not in a gay sort of way, haha) :)

    General CommentI love this song. it reminds of a friend who was about to kill herself. she basically had nothing left, she felt like no one loved her, but then she relized that i love her. my love gave her a new begining and started to chage and found god.

    General CommentPeople are fools who think the remade version of this song by Montgomery Gentry is better than the Kenny version. Long Live KC.

    General CommentThis is more and more becoming my favorite songg, not because I have an alcoholic in the family, or a closemined, but with the chorus mainly. It really speaks to me about life and love and well, I'm in such a bad spot right now with love, this song actually makes me cry.

    General Commentyeah, this song made me cry too. one of my best friends broke my heart the other day. not in the traditional sense. but see i'm Christian, i was talking to him about religion, and he told me about how he thinks that Christianity is false hope, and he's hostile towards God, and how he's so far from joining any faith. My heart ached for him, and i cried when we were talking about it. then a few days later, I heard this song (kudos to kenny chesney, i always loved him!) and i started crying again. This song reminds me not to ever give up hope, i love it!

    General Commenti love kenny more than the next person, but I do believe this is one of those songs that sounds like there's more emotion coming from Montgomery Gentry. that's just how it is

    General Commentlol, come on guys...this is called songmeanings, not mymusicisbetterthanyourmusic.com!
    "red is my favorite color" "yuck! red sucks! blue is better!" --This will get us nowhere. Thank goodness we are all different human beings, so we all express ourselves differently, therefore just agree to disagree,:) And can all find different meanings in a song, hence this site. :D

    If "some people change" is a great truth in life (it is), then so is "people like what they like". And it's ok.

    I adore this song--one of my all-time favorites I never tire of, shear brilliance.
    It had meant differnt things to me at differnt times, but always hope.
    Hope when I see someone being unfair/unkind, even to me, not to hate back, but see who they could be someday, or hope for myself when it feels like everything I've done has gone wrong, like now.
    Someday even I could change.

    rocker's comment inspired me, thanks. I wish when I was down, I had had a friend like you.

    "Thank God for those who make it
    Let them be the light
    Some people change"

    This part is a beautiful reminder to use your strength and courage to pull others up, not put them down or see yourself as superior.

    General CommentWell angus I do like the Montgomery Gentry version better. I mean Kenny Chensney is one of the most amazing artists ever, but this doesn't sound like something he would really relate to. When Montgomery Gentry sing it you hear so much more emotion.
