Glen Campbell + Loretta Lynn = Happiness

I was listening to Loretta Lynn's album Coal Miner's Daughter today and fell in love with a song called Less of Me. My friend the Internet tells me that Glen Campbell wrote the lyrics. I love the sentiment.

Let me be a little kinder, let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me, let me praise a little more.
Let me be when I am weary, just a little but more cheery,
Think a little more of others and a little less of me.

Let me be a little braver when temptation bids me waver,
Let me try a little harder to be all that I should be.
Let me be a little meeker with the brother who is weaker,
Let me be think more of my neighbor and a little less of me.

Let me be when I am weary, just a little bit more cheery,
Let me serve a little better those that I am striving for,
Let me be a little meeker with the brother who is weaker,
Think a little more of others and a little less of me.

Let me be when I am weary, just a little bit more cheery,
Think a little more of others and a little less of me.


Fun facts from Glen Campbell's wikipedia page:
He credits his Uncle Boo with teaching him how to play guitar.
In 1971, he took his show the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour on the road for two nights to the Muny in Forest Park (the largest and oldest outdoor theatre in America) in St. Louis, Missouri.
