And lovin’ an oilman

Ain’t always what it’s supposed to be

Oh, girl, you stand by me

I’m forever yours


Faithfully, An Oilfield Love SongMy rough and tough Oilman was serenading me in a voicemail.  He took it upon himself to change some of the lyrics and he sang “Faithfully” to me.  I ate it up like it was a big piece of chocolate cake.  I loved it and I kept listening to the Journey classic.   It summed up life as an oilfield couple.  I sang it in my car, while I was cleaning the house, or folding laundry.  I sang it at the top of my lungs.  I added in a few sweet dance moves and sang it into my improvised pen microphone.  In my head, I am a rock star.

I thought about how cool it would be if someone who could actually sing recorded the song as an oilfield anthem.  Luckily for me, my mom and her identical twin sister can sing (they are referred to as “the twins”).  My mom had never heard of “Faithfully” before I introduced her to it.  How one can be unfamiliar with the glory that is Journey, I have no idea.  I feel the need to disclose that the twins know all of the Judd’s greatest hits by heart.  The Judds are their jam, not Journey.  I had them record “Faithfully” anyway.  In my humble and biased opinion, they rocked it.

(The twins)

I wanted to share this with each of you, my fellow oilfield families.  I asked for your photos.  I loved seeing your smiling faces, the love that you have for your own oilman, and your adorable children.  I put your photos and my song together.

Without further ado, I give you “Faithfully”, the oilfield edition.

Merry Christmas ya’ll.

About LC

Howdy! LC and her Oilman live in the ‘burbs north of Austin, TX. She is a real estate broker, but you won’t find her face on a bus bench and she doesn't drive a Cadillac. Oilman works in Texas as a Completions Consultant. Don’t worry, most people don’t know what that title means either. LC calls him frac guru, for short. She may be the only woman in America that hated both "Twilight" AND "50 Shades of Grey". Oilman and LC like wine, good music, their two dogs, and cervezas in Central America.

  1. That was great! Thanks! I just sent my oilman off on the first hitch after our baby was born. I needed something uplifting!
