Country Music and Star Wars – A Momentary Collision

Do the Star Wars sway to this 1977 country song, “May the Force Be With You Always”

Tom T. Hall’s “May the Force Be With You” always was the first single from his November 1977 album New Train Same Rider. The song hit number 13 on Billboard’s “Hot Country Songs” chart and went to number 5 in Canada. Sing along with me now, sweetheart:

There is a force that moves our lives from place to place
There is a force exchanging smiles from face to face
If we must go and we must go then we will be apart
May the force be with you always sweetheart.

There is a force that moves the wind and changes tides
Not that we would but if we should we couldn’t hide
The force is all and we as one are but a tiny part
May the force be with you always sweetheart.

The force is bigger than the little plans we made
The force picks winners in the little games we play
If we are part of something bigger we can face the dark
May the force be with you always sweetheart
