Here And Now Or Gone (Larry W Jones 10/21/2012) (song#6601)

Today the sun arose, brightness hard to see
The moon went to doze, peaceful as could be
I feel on me the pull of gravity
It fills me full of lone reality

Sometimes I just don’t know where I belong
I’m not in your photograph nor your song
Let me know if I’m right or if I’m wrong
Is tomorrow the here and now or gone

I could ride an outbound train down the track
And then refrain from ever coming back
I could run away on an outbound train
Oh, but could I run away from the pain

(instrumental)

Up in the sky a lonely eagle flies
Down here I’m not the only man who cries
But I’m the one who fears the early dawn
Is tomorrow the here and now or gone

Sometimes I just don’t know where I belong
I’m not in your photograph nor your song
Let me know if I’m right or if I’m wrong
Is tomorrow the here and now or gone

Let me know if I’m right or if I’m wrong
Is tomorrow the here and now or gone
      
Seasons Remind Me Of You (Larry W Jones 10/23/2012) (song#6602)

Soft wind in the willows, a full moon in the sky
Will forever remind me of you
New garden of orchids, pearls of dew for the eye
Will forever remind me of you

My love will be yours forever
Cause dear, forever I'll be true
Summer turns to Autumn weather
But seasons remind me of you

(instrumental)

The stillness of peaceful twilight when day is done
Will forever remind me of you
I will love you day and night as my only one
Each thought dear, will remind me of you

My love will be yours forever
Cause dear, forever I'll be true
Summer turns to Autumn weather
But seasons remind me of you
      
A New Fallen Heart (Larry W Jones 10/25/2012) (song#6603)

You’re winning for yourself another heart like mine
By now your cheating heart must be just feeling fine
Your kind of love is like a work of darkest art
You just won a new fallen heart while mine just fell apart

You won’t find another man with love just as true
As this love that’s still deeply in my heart for you
Now that you have changed your ways and fallen in grace
Does he know what his heart will someday have to face

Oh, his heart fell for you just like a fallen tree
When you fall into his arms, do you think of me
I gave you all my love but that wasn’t so smart 
You just won a new fallen heart while mine just fell apart

(instrumental)

You won’t find another man with love just as true
As this love that’s still deeply in my heart for you
Now that you have changed your ways and fallen in grace
Does he know what his heart will someday have to face

Oh, his heart fell for you just like a fallen tree
When you fall into his arms, do you think of me
I gave you all my love but that wasn’t so smart 
You just won a new fallen heart while mine just fell apart
      
A Thousand Miles Ahead (Larry W Jones 10/26/2012) (song#6604)

There's a thousand miles ahead of me and that's where I'll go
I know this new train is fast and it never does run slow
Riding the Midnight Special on sweet promises she said
Yes, I’m rolling toward my darlin’ a thousand miles ahead

Just a thousand miles ahead and I’m feeling mighty glad
I used to feel so down and low with nothing more to add
I was full of woe but now my future is bright instead
Now I’m rolling toward blue skies just a thousand miles ahead

(instrumental)

I know I’ll hold her in my arms and never let her go
Yes, that’s why I feel so happy instead of feeling low
And I’ll promise her the world on that fine day when we wed
I’m rolling down these tracks with just a thousand miles ahead

Just a thousand miles ahead and I’m feeling mighty glad
I used to feel so down and low with nothing more to add
I was full of woe but now my future is bright instead
Now I’m rolling toward blue skies just a thousand miles ahead
      
Oklahoma Cherokee Rose (Larry W Jones 10/26/2012) (song#6605)

North of the old Red River, a sight there made me shiver
A page was tied to a tumbleweed caught in purple sage
It felt strange that to me a tumbleweed would deliver
A letter blown by the wind composed of a single page

The writing was all in blue, from someone I never knew
But it was surely from a lady I right then supposed
Her man died in eighty two and she was alone and blue
So I rode to find that Oklahoma Cherokee Rose

I rode into the north wind from where came that tumbleweed 
Wishing upon the moon and every shining star above
That maybe soon I would find her and then to her face read
The page from a tumbleweed that spoke of her need for love

(instrumental)

The next day is when I found on an Oklahoma mound
A lady in calico where Red River breezes blow
She said her man had died and so to tumbleweeds she tied
A one page letter to go wherever the wind would know

On an Oklahoma mound, true love this old cowboy found
Now we fill our cabin with love residing in repose
No more pages now are tied to tumbleweeds on the ground
I’m so in love with my Oklahoma Cherokee Rose
      
I Shook The Hand Of The Man In The Moon (Larry W Jones 10/28/2012) (song#6606)

I shook the hand of the man in the moon
And he played for me a beautiful tune
All about a love that would soon come true
I would kiss the hand of a girl like you

I used to walk around with heart shattered
I was just a fool dressed all in tatters
I shook the hand of the man in the moon
The first of the month in the month of June

Now I have a cause to continue to breathe
Because you came along and set my soul at ease
And you have a loving heart I can see right through
I shook the hand of the man in the moon and you

(instrumental)

I used to walk around with heart shattered
I was just a fool dressed all in tatters
I shook the hand of the man in the moon
The first of the month in the month of June

Now I have a cause to continue to breathe
Because you came along and set my soul at ease
And you have a loving heart I can see right through
I shook the hand of the man in the moon and you

I shook the hand of the man in the moon and you
      
Memories Have A Mind (Larry W Jones 10/28/2012) (song#6607)

I heard my memory say you’d come back to me
But then my mind made clear that it was not to be
My poor heart knows I will love you eternally
Yes, memories have a mind that’s too blind to see

I tried everything that a man like me can do
To keep you satisfied and loving me so true
I remember giving you my heart and the key
Yes, memories have a mind that’s too blind to see

What you did with our love I never can forget
But I still dwell on reasons why I love you yet
To give up on you now won’t set my mem’ry free
Yes, memories have a mind that’s too blind to see

(instrumental)

I guess now I’m your used-to-be
Just a used-to-be memory

I tried everything that a man like me can do
To keep you satisfied and loving me so true
I remember giving you my heart and the key
Yes, memories have a mind that’s too blind to see

What you did with our love I never can forget
But I still dwell on reasons why I love you yet
To give up on you now won’t set my mem’ry free
Yes, memories have a mind that’s too blind to see

Memories have a mind that’s too blind to see
      
Old Brand New Hurt In My Heart (Larry W Jones 10/29/2012) (song#6608)

Well, I’ve got an old ranch with old lumber
And a horse branded with an old number
I feel so old since we are both apart
Now I’ve renewed friendships with old faces
I even went and viewed our old places
But I’ve still got that old
Brand new hurt in my heart

Got some old Justin boots for next Friday
They wear my feet well though don’t look tidy
The old barn dance will give me a new start
That old beat up Ford pickup I still drive
I’m glad I still wake myself up alive
But I’ve still got that old
Brand new hurt in my heart

(instrumental)

Yeah, that same old brand new hurt is still here
Reminding me that you are nowhere near
That you and I are far apart
Got an old wallet with a little money
And a little photo of my honey
But I’ve still got that old
Brand new hurt in my heart

Got some old Justin boots for next Friday
They wear my feet well though don’t look tidy
The old barn dance will give me a new start
That old beat up Ford pickup I still drive
I’m glad I still wake myself up alive
But I’ve still got that old
Brand new hurt in my heart

I’ve still got that old brand new hurt in my heart
      
Big Coal Black Freight Train (Larry W Jones 10/29/2012) (song#6609)

Big coal black freight train, rolling down the track
My whole world is as dark as your smokestack
Roll back again and make your whistle blow
I’ve got places I ain’t been but must go

Big coal black freight train, don’t leave me behind
Cause my leaving here is now on my mind
Big coal black freight train, listen to my song
You’re my company when I’m so alone

My world is dark and I’m so doggone blue
So many black miles I’ve ridden with you
I know the engineer at your throttle
Give me a ride and I’ll share my bottle

(instrumental)

Big coal black freight train, don’t leave me behind
Cause my leaving here is now on my mind
Big coal black freight train, listen to my song
You’re my company when I’m so alone

Big coal black freight train, a hobo I am 
Roll me straight through the rain to Birmingham
Big coal black freight train, my ticket comes free
And I sure have enjoyed your company
      
Roll It On Over (Larry W Jones 11/16/2012) (song#6610)

After I was born, when I was ten
I remember young puppy love then
For a little girl my heart did pine
Roll it on over on down the line

Everything looked fine, she would be mine
Roll it on over on down the line
Then she made me cry, she said goodbye
Roll it on over on down the line

She just told me babe, the road is long
The choice I’ve made is now set in stone
Don’t you cry for me and you’ll be fine 
Roll it on over on down the line

(instrumental)

Everything looked fine, she would be mine
Roll it on over on down the line
Then she made me cry, she said goodbye
Roll it on over on down the line

One day I heard that she was now wed
Not to me but another instead
Oh, young puppy love can die in time
Roll it on over on down the line

For a little girl my heart did pine
Roll it on over on down the line
Roll it on over on down the line
      
Heart Of A Clown (Larry W Jones 11/21/2012) (song#6611)

All my friends think I’m the same as I’ve ever been
Happy as a lark walking in the park at ten
But they don’t have to deal with what has got me down
This real hurt down deep inside the heart of a clown

Oh, I still have my pride although you’re not around
All my tears have dried after falling down on the ground 
A feeling I’ve tried to avert is coming round
This real hurt down deep inside the heart of a clown

(instrumental)

Oh, the heart of a clown is in disgrace
Sometimes you can see it here in my face
I try not to show it when I’m downtown
But friends know I’ve got the heart of a clown

Oh, I still have my pride although you’re not around
All my tears have dried after falling down on the ground 
A feeling I’ve tried to avert is coming round
This real hurt down deep inside the heart of a clown

This real hurt down deep inside
Inside the heart of a clown
      
After Dawn In Denver (Larry W Jones 11/21/2012) (song#6612)

I now see the sun that shines on Denver
But I know the sun will never render
The warmth of sweet love since you went away
The sun is not as bright as yesterday

It’s after dawn in Denver and I’m free
You’re gone from Denver, now a memory
All along, how could I have been so blind
After dawn in Denver, you’re on my mind

Today I’ll stay away from neon lights
But I’ll be drawn to them on Denver nights
After dawn in Denver, life must go on
Just a pawn in love’s game’s how I’ll be known

(instrumental)

Today I’ll stay away from neon lights
But I’ll be drawn to them on Denver nights
After dawn in Denver, life must go on
Just a pawn in love’s game’s how I’ll be known

It’s after dawn in Denver and I’m free
You’re gone from Denver, now a memory
All along, how could I have been so blind
After dawn in Denver, you’re on my mind

After dawn in Denver, I’m left behind
      
Barcelona Eyes (Larry W Jones 11/22/2012) (song#6613)

Barcelona eyes
I see tears in dark Barcelona eyes
Dear, it’s you I prize
My own true love for you is not disguise

Moons will come and go
Soon my dear, I’ll return and then you’ll know
My love is sincere
Barcelona eyes, please wait for me here

(instrumental)

Barcelona eyes
Brightest in all of Catalonia
Barcelona eyes
Prettiest eyes this senor ever saw

Moons will come and go
Soon my dear, I’ll return and then you’ll know
My love is sincere
Barcelona eyes, please wait for me here

Barcelona eyes, please wait for me here
      
Marking Time (Larry W Jones 11/23/2012) (song#6614)

I’m marking time here waiting just for you
My dear, make up your mind so I can too
Is it worth my while, what I’m waiting for
For your sweet smile I’ll wait forevermore

There came a time so dark I could not see
No spark of love was seen back then for me
But now I’m hoping love can be renewed
I’m marking time here waiting just for you

(instrumental)

There came a time so dark I could not see
No spark of love was seen back then for me
But now I’m hoping love can be renewed
I’m marking time here waiting just for you

Dear, now I’m hoping love can be renewed
I’m marking time here waiting just for you
I’m marking time, marking time
Marking time here waiting just for you
      
Each And Every Heartbeat (Larry W Jones 11/24/2012) (song#6615)

I am told by each and every heartbeat
That I still love you though we’re far apart
But no matter how far you are, my sweet
I love you with each and every heartbeat

Dear, I hope with each and every heartbeat
That you will return and let new love start
I can’t return to one of my old sweets
I love you with each and every heartbeat

(instrumental)

I am told by each and every heartbeat
That I still love you though we’re far apart
But no matter how far you are, my sweet
I love you with each and every heartbeat

Dear, I hope with each and every heartbeat
That you will return and let new love start
I can’t return to one of my old sweets
I love you with each and every heartbeat
      
I’m To Blame (Larry W Jones 11/24/2012) (song#6616)

I’m to blame for having lost you
You were my flame that I let go
All my friends said it will cost you
And just how right they’ve yet to know

I’m a fool who left you lonely
Much more of love I should have shown
Dear, you’re still my one and only
But I’m to blame now that you’re gone

I’ll now live my life forever
Without you here right by my side
Bonds of true love I caused to sever
And I’m to blame for your goodbye

(instrumental)

I’m a fool who left you lonely
Much more of love I should have shown
Dear, you’re still my one and only
But I’m to blame now that you’re gone

I’ll now live my life forever
Without you here right by my side
Bonds of true love I caused to sever
And I’m to blame for your goodbye
      
The Cowboy And Cinderella (Larry W Jones 11/25/2012) (song#6617)

In a bar room chair she sat, with a tattered worn out hat
Loneliest face I’d ever seen
Outside the wind and falling snow meant nowhere else to go
For the sad Cinderella queen

In my Stetson hat and boots, and my faded Wrangler suit
We were a matched up pair it seemed
When I pulled me up a chair, she pulled back her long blonde hair
From the face of a cowboy’s dream

And our dance in the bar room, brightened up the cold night gloom
Like a glowing warm candela
Her song was acapella, but music to this fella 
The cowboy and Cinderella

(instrumental)

Somewhere in between a dance, somehow we both found romance
In a Colorado bar room
Was it the stormy weather, a girl and cowboy leather
That made such true love start to bloom

And our dance in the bar room, brightened up the cold night gloom
Like a glowing warm candela
Her song was acapella, but music to this fella 
The cowboy and Cinderella

Her song was acapella, but music to this fella 
The cowboy and Cinderella
The cowboy and Cinderella
      
Teardrops On A Postcard (Larry W Jones 11/27/2012) (song#6618)

Teardrops on a postcard the postman brought today
Told how hard it’s been on you since I’ve been away
I admit I have missed you and in dreams kissed you
So I’m returning home for true love to renew

Teardrops on a postcard on each sad line I read
Dear, I can’t disregard the sweetest words you said
I didn’t have to read between the lines for clues
So I’m returning home for true love to renew

I don’t have to think about what I have to do
Cause I don’t like to see you pout or feeling blue
And these teardrops on a postcard I got from you
Made me stop and think of all I have put you through

(instrumental)

I don’t have to think about what I have to do
Cause I don’t like to see you pout or feeling blue
And these teardrops on a postcard I got from you
Made me stop and think of all I have put you through

Your teardrops on a postcard is a heartfelt sign
That your life has been scarred but I’m still on your mind
And that’s why I’ll love you until the end of time
Teardrops on a postcard now has some tears of mine
      
City Slickers Think I’m Poor (Larry W Jones 11/29/2012) (song#6619)

Moonbeams falling on the prairie meadow
Like gold dust sparkling on a western night
Whippoorwills calling from a hill I know
Coyotes howling in the pale moonlight

Prairie purple sage smells like sweet perfume
Stars in the high heavens are all on tour
Morning light will show the prairie in bloom
And all the city slickers think I’m poor

Playing harmonica on my front porch
Fireflies lighting up the cool nighttime sky
Watching a caterpillar on his march
City slickers are not as rich as I

(instrumental)

Prairie purple sage smells like sweet perfume
Stars in the high heavens are all on tour
Morning light will show the prairie in bloom
And all the city slickers think I’m poor

Playing harmonica on my front porch
Fireflies lighting up the cool nighttime sky
Watching a caterpillar on his march
City slickers are not as rich as I
      
All Alone Star Of Texas (Larry W Jones 12/06/2012) (song#6620)

Last night I played Billy Bob’s honky tonk
The crowd swayed like a wild rodeo bronc
Just like they did for my El Paso show
Singing faded San Antonio rose

I’m the big all alone star of Texas
Right in the heart of Texas feeling bad
Yeah, I’m the all alone star of Texas
I’m the star of the show concealing sad

Heading south from Dallas to Houston town
Down where blue denim skirts are evening gowns
Then I might just be where nobody knows
Singing faded San Antonio rose

(instrumental)

I’m the big all alone star of Texas
Right in the heart of Texas feeling bad
Yeah, I’m the all alone star of Texas
I’m the star of the show concealing sad

Heading south from Dallas to Houston town
Down where blue denim skirts are evening gowns
Then I might just be where nobody knows
Singing faded San Antonio rose

I’m the big all alone star of Texas
All alone star of Texas
Yeah, I’m the all alone star of Texas
Right in the heart of Texas feeling bad
      
What Will Become Of Me Now (Larry W Jones 12/08/2012) (song#6621)

The roses of Spring have withered today
As if they've been turned by the plow
To you I can't cling cause you've gone away
Oh, what will become of me now

I'll never find someone like you to love
No new love would do anyhow
A new moon will shine on you from above
But, what will become of me now

If you get lonesome and want to come home
I'll be here for you, I'll avow
But some hearts are known to endlessly roam
Oh, what will become of me now

(instrumental)

If you get lonesome and want to come home
I'll be here for you, I'll avow
But some hearts are known to endlessly roam
Oh, what will become of me now

When years have gone by like wind in the skies
Dear, I'll still remember your vow
This song will bring lonely tears to my eyes
Oh, what will become of me now

This song will bring lonely tears to my eyes
Oh, what will become of me now
      
You See Me Walking (Larry W Jones 12/09/2012) (song#6622)

Sometimes the talkin' ain't of words that's comin' true
That's why I'm walkin' down these lonesome railroad tracks
You’ve now become someone I never dreamed was you
You see me walkin' and my shoes ain't comin' back

An old lesson learned is the one you taught to me
I guess I’m a-guessin’ I’m the fool of the pack
Your words sounded shockin’ bout wanting to be free
You see me walkin' and my shoes ain't comin' back

(instrumental)

Sometimes the talkin' ain't of words that's comin' true
That's why I'm walkin' down these lonesome railroad tracks
You’ve now become someone I never dreamed was you
You see me walkin' and my shoes ain't comin' back

My dear, I still love you and I will til the end
But sometimes a King can become a lowly Jack
I played my best hand in love but I didn’t win
You see me walkin' and my shoes ain't comin' back

I played my best hand in love but I didn’t win
You see me walkin' and my shoes ain't comin' back
      
The Old Western Hills (Larry W Jones 12/11/2012) (song#6623)

The old western hills are silent tonight
There’s no echo of songs of long ago
The old western hills once sang love’s delight
With sweet words I heard when you loved me so

The breeze in the hills made soft melody
But now the western breeze just brings me chills
Oh, please return again, my dear, to me
With songs of love in the old western hills

(instrumental)

The old western hills still call out to me
They call with our love songs of long ago
The old western hills are begging you please
With sweet words I heard when you loved me so

The breeze in the hills made soft melody
But now the western breeze just brings me chills
Oh, please return again, my dear, to me
With songs of love in the old western hills

Oh, please return again, my dear, to me
With songs of love in the old western hills
      
Just Beyond The Moon (Larry W Jones 12/15/2012) (song#6624)

My darlin’ is my lover as she’s been for many years
And so I told her, when I die, don’t shed so many tears
Just walk out on a moonlit night and look up to the sky
And remember how I loved you until the day I died

Dear, remember how I told you that love would never leave
So never may there be any sad cause for you to grieve
Just remember all our vows that we gave that month in June
For they will all still be living soon just beyond the moon

When you look up at the sight of a starry moonlit night
You will know that all is right for love will have won the fight
Among the stars that are strewn you will hear love songs in tune
Like that night in June when love came from just beyond the moon

(instrumental)

Dear, remember how I told you that love would never leave
So never may there be any sad cause for you to grieve
Just remember all our vows that we gave that month in June
For they will all still be living soon just beyond the moon

When you look up at the sight of a starry moonlit night
You will know that all is right for love will have won the fight
Among the stars that are strewn you will hear love songs in tune
Like that night in June when love came from just beyond the moon

Among the stars that are strewn you will hear love songs in tune
Like that night in June when love came from just beyond the moon
      
Songs Of San Antone (Larry W Jones 12/15/2012) (song#6625)

I wonder if there is a Texan in the know
Who knows if there are written songs of long ago
That can be known for countless loves that were bestowed
Songs of San Antone must include the Alamo

I wonder if there is a couple in love’s glow
Who never strolled down where the peaceful river flows
At Fiesta time is when true love blooms and grows 
Songs of San Antone must include the Alamo

A friend lives in Chicago where the winds blow cold
He had lost his love and now had no place to go
He asked where I fell in love and became her beau
I said my song of love includes the Alamo

(instrumental)

My song of San Antone includes the Alamo
I opened up my heart when I was feeling low
My sad heart said turn around and then you will know
True love is standing there beside the Alamo

To that senorita my whole life I now owe
She is now my wife and I am more than her beau
By the Alamo our true love would bloom and grow
Songs of San Antone must include the Alamo
      
After This Heartbreak Is Over And Done (Larry W Jones 12/18/2012) (song#6626)

After this heartbreak, I will still be blue
Cause my thoughts can’t forsake thinking of you
I’ll stay awake until the morning sun
After this heartbreak is over and done

Will time overwrite the old memories
Will days become bright on pathways for me
After all will you still be my only one
After this heartbreak is over and done

(instrumental)

Will time overwrite the old memories
Will days become bright on pathways for me
After all will you still be my only one
After this heartbreak is over and done

After all will you still be my only one
After this heartbreak is over and done
After this heartbreak is over and done
      
Pages And Pages Ago (Larry W Jones 12/18/2012) (song#6627)

Way back in history you made me cry
Pages and pages ago
A book of misery that read goodbye
Pages and pages ago

The first page records your walking away
And the last page ends with woe
I finished reading the book yesterday
Pages and pages ago

A new love came and stepped into my place
Though you knew I loved you so
I still see a face I cannot erase  
Pages and pages ago

(instrumental)

The first page records your walking away
And the last page ends with woe
I finished reading the book yesterday
Pages and pages ago

A new love came and stepped into my place
Though you knew I loved you so
I still see a face I cannot erase  
Pages and pages ago
      
One Starlit Night (Larry W Jones 12/18/2012) (song#6628)

One starlit night a halo surrounded the moon
While I had a dream that love would be coming soon
One starlit night was when my every dream came true
Gleams of love began to beam when I first met you

One starlit night has lasted forever
You came into sight and left me never
A starlit halo surrounded the moon 
That night when love surrounded us in June

On one starlit night my fortune began to change
A sweet dream came true that I would not ever change
I wished upon a star that I’d find a love true
And now that here you are, I’m so in love with you

(instrumental)

One starlit night has lasted forever
You came into sight and left me never
A starlit halo surrounded the moon 
That night when love surrounded us in June

On one starlit night my fortune began to change
A sweet dream came true that I would not ever change
I wished upon a star that I’d find a love true
And now that here you are, I’m so in love with you
      
I Just Fed My Heart A Fairytale (Larry W Jones 12/19/2012) (song#6629)

You left me here to believe your fable
Of how much you loved me in great detail
I tried to tell friends but wasn’t able
And I just fed my heart a fairytale

I just smile and make believe I’m joyful
I hope my friends can’t see I wear a veil
I read your book about being loyal
And I just fed my heart a fairytale

Why do folks all whisper as they pass by
They say I’m so blind I need to learn Braille
I’ll find a new love, that’s a low class lie
Cause I just fed my heart a fairytale

(instrumental)

I just smile and make believe I’m joyful
I hope my friends can’t see I wear a veil
I read your book about being loyal
And I just fed my heart a fairytale

Why do folks all whisper as they pass by
They say I’m so blind I need to learn Braille
I’ll find a new love, that’s a low class lie
Cause I just fed my heart a fairytale

Yes, I just fed my heart a fairytale
      
Another Herd Another Norther (Larry W Jones) (song#6630)

Another herd, another norther
The big cattle drive is under way
Another herd, another norther
This old Chisholm Trail ain’t worth the pay

The big trail boss said he’d pay weekly
But it’s been a month since I got paid
Another herd, another norther
Rain and lightning make longhorns afraid

Another herd, another norther
The big cattle drive is under way
Another herd, another norther
This old Chisholm Trail ain’t worth the pay

(instrumental)

My sweet Molly is why I’m strivin’
To keep these cattle from being strays
She’s the reason why I’m still ridin’
This old Chisholm Trail is cowboy ways

Another herd, another norther
The big cattle drive is under way
Another herd, another norther
This old Chisholm Trail ain’t worth the pay

Another herd, another norther
Rain and lightning make longhorns afraid
Another herd, another norther
But this Chisholm Trail is cowboy ways
      
Blue Midnight Special (Larry W Jones 12/21/2012) (song#6631)

Blue midnight special, rolling on around the bend
Your glowing black smokestack looks like a long lost friend
Each time you come around I hear your whistle blow
You hide the sun, bring the rain everywhere you go

Blue midnight special, don’t you leave me here behind 
My old hobo ways are waitin’ on down the line
Blue midnight special, don’t you leave me here alone
Don’t you know an old outbound boxcar is my home

(instrumental)

Blue midnight special, don’t you leave me here behind 
My old hobo ways are waitin’ on down the line
Blue midnight special, don’t you leave me here alone
Don’t you know an old outbound boxcar is my home

Well, I’m feeling blue and I need your company
Blue midnight special, hold the line and wait for me 
It’s lonely here waiting for the blue moon to crest
Mister engineer, let me be your midnight guest
      
Galveston Childhood (Larry W Jones 12/26/2012) (song#6632)

Down in the warm southern gulf waters off the Texas main
Lies an island named Galveston blessed by warm wind and rain
Now, on Galveston Bay there’s a little house made of wood
And that’s where I spent the very best days of my childhood

Those Galveston days were special to me most of the time
Puppy love’s in every story and there’s sure one in mine
Oh, but my heart got broke the day she spoke, don’t come no more
Guess she’s the reason I left Galveston a little sore

Now, folks on Galveston isle make their living from the sea
And the big Gulf of Mexico was home sweet home to me
If I could change or rearrange the times, I surely would
Just to live again with my friends in Galveston childhood

(instrumental)

Spoken:
I would watch the shrimp boats sailing out on Galveston Bay
And I would live again the blessedness of childhood ways
Galveston had no strangers that I knew of way back then
It was just an isle where everybody was my dear friend

Now, folks on Galveston isle make their living from the sea
And the big Gulf of Mexico was home sweet home to me
If I could change or rearrange the times, I surely would
Just to live again with my friends in Galveston childhood

Just to live again with my friends in Galveston childhood
      
Outbound Greyhound (Larry W Jones 12/28/2012) (song#6633)

Grieving, my mind’s sadly grieving
A purple night is coming round
Bleeding, my poor heart is bleeding
She’s boarding an outbound Greyhound

Loving, she was always loving
Each day since she became my bride
Coming, I could see it coming
I’ve lost everything I tossed aside

I’ve lost everything that made my life worth living
Now I’ll pay the cost of taking and not giving
All a man could want is now lost along with pride 
Besides love, I’ve lost everything I tossed aside

(instrumental)

Pleading, words were lost in pleading
Begging for forgiveness again
Knowing, realizing she’s bound
She’s boarding an outbound Greyhound
 
I’ve lost everything that made my life worth living
Now I’ll pay the cost of taking and not giving
All a man could want is now lost along with pride 
Besides love, I’ve lost everything I tossed aside

Loving, she was always loving
Each day since she became my bride
Coming, I could see it coming
I’ve lost everything I tossed aside
      
Magnificent Colorado (Larry W Jones 12/28/2012) (song#6634)

Now, much has been said of places
Some folks travel so far to see
Beautiful sights always graces
Someone’s homeland from sea to sea

Some people go for the journey
Just so they can say they were there
But for one place my heart’s burning
For no other place can compare

Magnificent Colorado
Where high mountains reach to the sky
Magnificent Colorado
Where eagles teach young ones to fly

Folks there reside in the mountains
Some in green valleys or the plains
Magnificent Colorado
Most beautiful place I can name

(instrumental)

Magnificent Colorado
Where high mountains reach to the sky
Magnificent Colorado
Where eagles teach young ones to fly

Folks there reside in the mountains
Some in green valleys or the plains
Magnificent Colorado
Most beautiful place I can name

Magnificent Colorado
I sing of your beauty and fame
      
Golden Ringlets Laced In Navy Blue (Larry W Jones 12/29/2012) (song#6635)

In a distant village where the warm summer breezes blow
T’was there I rambled when I met a girl with golden glow

She looked fresher than the morning in the new fallen dew
Her hair fell down in golden ringlets laced in navy blue

So cruel was my destiny when time came for our farewell
Two hearts in love for such brevity still in love does dwell

She looked fresher than the morning in the new fallen dew
Her hair fell down in golden ringlets laced in navy blue

(instrumental)

In a distant village where the warm summer breezes blow
T’was there I rambled when I met a girl with golden glow

She looked fresher than the morning in the new fallen dew
Her hair fell down in golden ringlets laced in navy blue

Her hair fell down in golden ringlets laced in navy blue
      
Sliding Out Of Reasons To Hide (Larry W Jones 12/30/2012) (song#6636)

Heart bruised in love, I was in fear
Of trying to find love again
I would hide when a girl got near
Who wanted time with me to spend

But then I saw I was followed
By somebody matching my stride
I thought maybe I had wallowed
In my own self pity and pride 

Oh, I’m sliding out of reasons to hide
Yes, I’m sliding out of reasons to hide
I dreamed last night that you were by my side
Oh, I’m Sliding out of reasons to hide

(instrumental)

Woke up this morning with a yawn
Finding that you were on my mind
Out the window it was past dawn
Thinking of you at half past nine

Oh, I’m sliding out of reasons to hide
Yes, I’m sliding out of reasons to hide
I dreamed last night that you were by my side
Oh, I’m Sliding out of reasons to hide

Yes, I’m Sliding out of reasons to hide
      
As Long As You Long For Me (Larry W Jones 12/31/2012) (song#6637)

Do you long for me as I long for you
If so, how long will love be
This love song I sing will be of love true
As long as you long for me

Do you yearn for me as I yearn for you
Will you yearn someday to be free
My love will burn as flames of fire burn blue
As long as you long for me

(instrumental)

Will you care for me as I care for you
As long as through eternity
Dear, we’ll be a pair in all that we do
As long as you long for me

Do you long for me as I long for you
If so, how long will love be
This love song I sing will be of love true
As long as you long for me

This love song I sing will be of love true
As long as you long for me
      
Call Her Missus Gone (Larry W Jones 01/02/2013) (song#6638)

Adios my love and saludos gloomy dawn
I guess I’ll welcome home, I’ve been waiting for you
Now that she has left, I’m just barely holding on
Just call her Missus Gone and call me Mister Blue

When she bid me final adios this morning
That’s when I figured out that you would come in view
Adios my love and saludos gloomy dawn
Just call her Missus Gone and call me Mister Blue

(instrumental)

Well, now that she’s gone, I love her more than ever
Since she bid adios and said that she’d move on
Now that she has left, I’m just barely holding on
Just call her Missus Gone and call me Mister Blue

When she bid me final adios this morning
That’s when I figured out that you would come in view
Adios my love and saludos gloomy dawn
Just call her Missus Gone and call me Mister Blue
      
I Told My Heart All About You (Larry W Jones 01/03/2013) (song#6639)

I told my heart all about you, dear
My heart didn’t know that we were through
I wasted my time since you’re not here
When I told my heart all about you

I told my heart all about you, dear
I told it I would hold someone new
But I was a fool, it’s now so clear
When I told my heart all about you

(instrumental)

I told my heart that I’d forget you
But to tell is harder than to do
Somehow I know my words were untrue
When I told my heart all about you

Friends don’t know that it’s over and done
They don’t know that I care like I do
But my heart knows you’re my only one
When I told my heart all about you

Yes, my heart knows you’re my only one
When I told my heart all about you
      
Already Come And Gone (Larry W Jones 01/04/2013) (song#6640)

My friends all ask me if I still miss you
They don’t know how it hurts me to the bone
They even ask me which of us was true
I say truth has already come and gone

Oh, your memory hung around last night
Like a sweet song sung until early dawn
I was in anguish because of my plight
I wished it had already come and gone

A little fib is what I always say
I just say that I’m still here hanging on
Yes, your memory came around today
I thought it had already come and gone

(instrumental)

Oh, your memory hung around last night
Like a sweet song sung until early dawn
I was in anguish because of my plight
I wished it had already come and gone

A little fib is what I always say
I just say that I’m still here hanging on
Yes, your memory came around today
I thought it had already come and gone

I wish your me’ry would leave me alone
      
Little Cowboy Joe (Larry W Jones 01/08/2012) (song#6641)

Down a far off trail of misery across the wide prairie
There a little cowpoke is waiting and he resembles me
His cowboy hat is small but he wears it proudly, that I know
Now, I don’t know his name but I call him Little Cowboy Joe

That cowpoke’s called Little Cowboy Joe that I would like to know
He may feel so all alone somewhere across the wide prairie
One day maybe he will wear my name, at least that is my aim
I want the world to know Little Cowboy Joe’s my progeny

Little Cowboy Joes’s mama died on the night of giving birth
And here I am in this dark cell doing time in Leavenworth 
When I get free I’ll cross the wide prairie, sun, rain, sleet or snow
And I’ll try to be a good daddy to Little Cowboy Joe

(instrumental)

And here I am in this dark cell doing time in Leavenworth

Yes, I’ll try to be a good daddy to Little Cowboy Joe
      
Red Blood Drops On Silver Sage (Larry W Jones 01/09/2013) (song#6642)

There’s red blood drops on silver sage tonight
Sprinkled under a silver moon above
Now, lay me down cowboys so that I might
Dream my last sweet dream of the one I love

There’s red blood drops on silver sage tonight
I tried in vain to rope that longhorn stray
Now, lay me down cowboys so that I might
Dream my last sweet dream of one far away

(instrumental)

Here on this range I must wait for my love
Though her love for me may change by and by 
There’s red blood drops on silver sage tonight
Though my true love for her will never die

There’s red blood drops on silver sage tonight
Sprinkled under a silver moon above
Now, lay me down cowboys so that I might
Dream my last sweet dream of the one I love

Dream of the one I love
Dream of the gal I love 
      
Call Of The Lone Whippoorwill (Larry W Jones 01/11/2013) (song#6643)

Twilight falls on the lonesome trail
The sun is setting o’re the hill
I hear so clear through hill and dale
The call of the lone whippoorwill

There’s no resting along the trail
I keep riding, for that’s my will
My heart still hears the lowly wail
The call of the lone whippoorwill

(instrumental)

There’s no resting along the trail
I keep riding, for that’s my will
My heart still hears the lowly wail
The call of the lone whippoorwill

On many trails I’ve never been
But all my dreams I must fulfill
Guess I’ll keep hearing until then
The call of the lone whippoorwill

Guess I’ll keep hearing until then
The call of the lone whippoorwill
      
Waco Wanda (Larry W Jones 01/11/2013) (song#6644)

At a barn dance by the Brazos
Down in Texas I did wander
Her dress was made of calico
And they called her Waco Wanda

Waco is her hacienda 
Her dance is just like a samba
She’s on each cowboy’s agenda
Real romance is Waco Wanda

Oh Waco Wanda, sweet Texas lady
You know I love you more than just kinda
Please tell me you love me more than maybe
So I can call you my Waco Wanda

(instrumental)

Waco Wanda, by the Brazos
Just toward you my boots will wander
Please don’t say no when I propose
Just be my sweet Waco Wanda

Oh Waco Wanda, sweet Texas lady
You know I love you more than just kinda
Please tell me you love me more than maybe
So I can call you my Waco Wanda
      
Felina (Larry W Jones 01/12/2013) (song#6645)

In west Texas lived a Mexican girl
Every cowboy lived to give her a whirl
Down to the town of El Paso they came
The girl they found was Felina by name

One cowboy named Marty, he loved her so
Loved young Felina in old El Paso
Down to the town of El Paso he came
The girl he loved was Felina by name
 
Then one day a wild new cowboy rode in
Stopped at her saloon for whiskey and gin
He saw Felina there in the saloon
And asked her to dance before it was noon

When their eyes met, it wasn’t discreetly
Young Felina smiled at him so sweetly
But as young Felina in his arms swept
Marty in anger and jealousy stepped  

The wild new cowboy’s eyes were a-gleaming
Soon shots were heard and Felina’s screaming
Fast was Marty’s gun outside of the law
But faster still was the new cowboy’s draw

That day when Marty died in the saloon
His lips whispered sometime just before noon
If I have to die, it’s better like this
Knowing the feel of Felina’s last kiss

In El Paso they still tell the story
In its grandeur though bloody and gory
Of cowboy Marty and his love of fame
The girl he loved was Felina by name
      
Ribbons Of The Land (Larry W Jones 01/12/2013) (song#6646)

I’ve known valleys, shallow and deep
High mountains and hallows they keep
Through them all, stone, gravel, and sand
There runs the ribbons of the land

Through towns all around there is found
Ribbons of steel laid on the ground
From East to West and down seaboard
You still hear the sound of All Aboard

Ribbons of the land on their run
Chasing the sun til day is done
All through the night trains make their way
On steel ribbons til light of day

Recall a place o’re the Divide
A spike driven on prairies wide
Two trains met to musical bands
And joined two ribbons of the land

Ribbons of the land on their run
Chasing the sun til day is done
All through the night trains make their way
On steel ribbons til light of day

When light of dawn heats up the rails
Train horns drone to greet with their wails
My feet will rest just for awhile
Then ride the ribbon rails in style

Ribbons of the land on their run
Chasing the sun til day is done
All through the night trains make their way
On steel ribbons til light of day

Ribbons of the land on their run
Chasing the sun til day is done
      
Another Trail To Ride (Larry W Jones 01/14/2013) (song#6647)

Well, it’s just knowing the corral gate is open
And a trail is free to ride across prairies wide
And my bedroll’s tied behind my saddle, hoping
That keeps me searching for another trail to ride

And like the wind that’s blowing and never shackled
By some woman not knowing when her eyes will dry
It’s just the thought of my going when I’m saddled
That keeps me searching for another trail to ride

There’s no moss clinging to the stones hooves are throwing
And there’s no loss of things I never even owned
Words that people say will never stop my going
As long as I can ride new trails I’ve never known

Well, it’s just knowing new horizons are waiting
Far off across the mountains and the Great Divide
And that simple dreams are never complicating
That keeps me searching for another trail to ride

Through the low valleys and high meadows that I find
As I’m riding along singing a western song
Sometimes I wonder if I’m wrong to be the kind
That keeps on searching for new trails to ride along

Though my ride may be in quiet or I may face
Danger from some lawless men who might want my hide
I’ll keep going though I may need to quicken pace
And keep on searching for another trail to ride

My tin pot of coffee’s boiling on a campfire
That I just made to push away the nighttime chill
But there’s no way I’d trade for farms and bailing wire
When there’s new trails to ride and so I’m riding still

I drink coffee down, eat my chow and say goodnight
To stars and moon above and close my weary eyes   
Then dream of places I've never been til daylight
That keeps me searching for another trail to ride
      
I Love You Today (Larry W Jones 01/16/2013) (song#6648)

Dear, I’ll tell you daily how I love you
Nothing less would I tell you anyway
In my heart, there’s no one else above you
My dear, I’ll confess, I love you today

My whole world would end if you should scorn me
For my heart was born to hold love this way
My love for you is as the endless sea
My dear, I’ll confess, I love you today

When you’re away, for you my heart does yearn
As if blue skies have turned to dismal grey
I feel so blessed whenever you return
My dear, I’ll confess, I love you today

(instrumental)

My whole world would end if you should scorn me
For my heart was born to hold love this way
My love for you is as the endless sea
My dear, I’ll confess, I love you today

Dear, I’ll tell you nightly when I’m sleeping
In my every dream as I drift away
That my love for you is in safe keeping
My dear, I’ll confess, I love you today

My whole world would end if you should scorn me
For my heart was born to hold love this way
My love for you is as the endless sea
My dear, I’ll confess, I love you today
      
Someone Is Holding My Darling (Larry W Jones 01/17/2013) (song#6649)

Someone is holding my darling, holding her tight
Someone is holding my darling in the moonlight
I know he’s telling her lies about this next June
But there are stars in her eyes underneath the moon

A lesson she will learn that I already know
I hate to be the one who said I told her so
But that won’t help me now cause I’m so torn apart
Someone is holding my darling, holding her heart

(instrumental)

A lesson she will learn that I already know
I hate to be the one who said I told her so
But that won’t help me now cause I’m so torn apart
Someone is holding my darling, holding her heart

But that won’t help me now cause I’m so torn apart
Someone is holding my darling, holding her heart
Someone is holding my darling, holding her heart
Holding my darling, holding her heart
      
Texas Trail Boss Man (Larry W Jones 01/18/2013) (song#6650)

Well now, trail boss man, don’t you hear that cattle call
Texas trail boss man, don’t you hear that cattle call
Drive them cows through rain and hail with your Texas drawl

I ride for a trail boss man who don’t treat me right
Straddle ‘ol Buckskin Dan all day, ride herd at night
Texas trail boss man, don’t you hear that cattle call
Drive them cows through rain and hail with your Texas drawl

Buckskin Dan and I need water, let’s stop I plead
But mister trail boss man and I just disagreed
Texas trail boss man, don’t you hear that cattle call
Drive them cows through rain and hail with your Texas drawl

(instrumental)

Buckskin Dan and I need water, let’s stop I plead

Texas trail boss man, don’t you hear that cattle call
Drive them cows through rain and hail with your Texas drawl
      
Heartless Sweetheart (Larry W Jones 01/19/2013) (song#6651)

Sweetheart, you once vowed to love me alone
You promised to be mine, my very own
Don’t you remember or have you forgot
Dear, something happened to untie the knot

Oh, heartless sweetheart, how heartless of you
You broke every vow that said you’d be true
Now, I kept all of mine right from the start
You gave me no sign, oh heartless sweetheart

(instrumantal)

When you said goodbye that last day in Spring
I started the cry a heartache will bring
Oh, heartless sweetheart, how heartless of you
My skies are now grey that once were so blue

If your tomorrows become bygone years
And you have sorrows that bring you strong tears
Think of me darling, and though we’re apart
Know I still love you, oh heartless sweetheart 
      
Baby Wrens And Children (Larry W Jones 01/20/2013) (song#6652)

(Spoken)
I was just fifteen when I went on my first cattle drive
My Daddy told me lots of things to help me stay alive
Words were spoken like a man but with a tear in his eye
As my Mamma held his hand I hated to see her cry

Mamma helped me pack my saddle bags for the cattle drive
Daddy gave me twenty dollars that he had set aside
Both of them smiled the way in which parents have always known
The way young ones can come back home is ride away and roam 

Baby wrens and children spread their young wings on breezy days
It’s nature’s thread of life that pulls on hearts in many ways
Now, baby wrens and children never know where they will go
Baby wrens fly away and boys follow their own rainbow

(Spoken)
To my dear Mamma I heard my dear Daddy say
Baby wrens and children spread their wings every day

(instrumental)

My mind was filled with wonder as I waved and said goodbye
I wondered if I had the skill to spread my wings and fly
But then, to my dear Mamma I heard my dear Daddy say
Sweetheart, baby wrens and children spread their wings every day

Baby wrens and children spread their young wings on breezy days
It’s nature’s thread of life that pulls on hearts in many ways
Now, baby wrens and children never know where they will go
Baby wrens fly away and boys follow their own rainbow

(Spoken)
Baby wrens and children spread their wings every day
      
Manischewitz Table Wine (Larry W Jones 01/23/2013) (song#6653)

I’m sitting at a table all alone tonight
My cheap Manischewitz is tasting mighty fine
But blurry visions of my past come into sight
In bubbles in my Manischewitz table wine

I try to focus on somebody who loves me
But the tears that fill my eyes feel like salty brine
My faulty ways led down a path I now can see
In bubbles in my Manischewitz table wine

A cloudy vision of the road I have traveled
Is one that is not with much gold or silver lined
All I see is a life that has come unraveled
In bubbles in my Manischewitz table wine

(instrumental)

A cloudy vision of the road I have traveled
Is one that is not with much gold or silver lined
All I see is a life that has come unraveled
In bubbles in my Manischewitz table wine

As I picture a trusting heart that’s now broken
I look around my lonely table one more time
And all I see is love’s door that won’t be opened
In bubbles in my Manischewitz table wine
      
Did We Have To Get This Close To Say Adios (Larry W Jones 01/23/2013) (song#6654)

Once we were just friends and I didn’t really mind
Losing you didn’t seem to be so great a loss
Oh, but time brought us together and made things rhyme
Did we have to get so close to say adios

Darling, why did you delay in your departing
Why you stayed around I can’t really diagnose
You could have left way before real love was starting
Did we have to get so close to say adios

(instrumental)

Dear, why did you give sweet love a reason to live
For just a time and then for it to ever close
How I wanted you and all the love you could give
Did we have to get so close to say adios

Darling, why did you delay in your departing
Why you stayed around I can’t really diagnose
You could have left way before real love was starting
Did we have to get so close to say adios
      
Rich Girl With Everything (Larry W Jones 01/25/2013) (song#6655)

I know you’re in your castle living as a queen
Rich girl with everything except a king to love
I want to be your vassal giving love a wing
It would be reverie to be your king to love

On both your hands are diamonds, pretty shining stones
But look in your hall mirror and the scene is clear  
Rich girl with everything except she’s all alone
A queen with everything but with eyes full of tears

(instrumental)

On both your hands are diamonds, pretty shining stones
But look in your hall mirror and the scene is clear  
Rich girl with everything except she’s all alone
A queen with everything but with eyes full of tears

I know you’re in your castle living as a queen
Rich girl with everything except a king to love
I want to be your vassal giving love a wing
It would be reverie to be your king to love

Better living in a shack with someone who cares
Than a castle crying with no king’s love to share
      
On The Hill Of A Whippoorwill (Larry W Jones 01/26/2013) (song#6657)

When I lost your love, I had a feeling
That down deep inside my heart was reeling
It resides with love unfulfilled
On the hill of a whippoorwill

Now I don’t have to stop and wonder why
A poor whippoorwill barely learns to fly
Down on the ground he wants to be
Poor and alone, he’s just like me

Oh yes, I could feel something happening
Yes dear, I could feel something happening
My dear, I could feel something happening, a chill
Just when you let go of my hand
Our love was buried in the sand
On the hill of a whippoorwill

(instrumental)

Now as I watch the setting of the sun
How I’m regretting that our love’s undone
It resides with heart unfulfilled
On the hill of a whippoorwill

Oh yes, I could feel something happening
Yes dear, I could feel something happening
My dear, I could feel something happening, a chill
Just when you let go of my hand
Our love was buried in the sand
On the hill of a whippoorwill
      
Oh Lone Cowboy (Larry W Jones 01/27/2013) (song#6658)

Oh, lone cowboy, far trails, far trails have called you
From Texas to the big Montana sky
Fall roundup’s done and snowflakes now befall you
For you alone a girl now weeps and cries

She bids return at roundup in the Springtime
Down where warm Texas prairie breezes blow
For it is there that red-wing blackbirds sing rhyme  
Oh, lone cowboy, oh lone cowboy, she loves you so

If you delay, red-wing blackbirds go flying
True love will die, for hearts cannot abide
And you’ll return to find where she is lying
With broken heart, for you alone she died

(instrumental)

If you delay, red-wing blackbirds go flying
True love will die, for hearts cannot abide
And you’ll return to find where she is lying
With broken heart, for you alone she died

Then you’ll come near, with boots you’ll trod around her
No warmth will be forthcoming from her grave
Oh, lone cowboy, in death you will have found her
You cannot hold the love for you she gave

Oh, lone cowboy, oh lone cowboy, she loved you so
      
Alberta Timberland (Larry W Jones 01/28/2013) (song#6659)

People spend their time today
Penned in the grime of cities
They should mend their tiresome ways
And end their time of pity
I suppose they just don’t know
There’s a brighter place to go

Listen to my song of Alberta Timberland
Along the Great Divide where living is so grand
Purple sage grows in the sun by an aspen run
Beauty is as nature planned
In Alberta Timberland

(instrumental)

Those old Rocky Mountains lead back many a day
And verdant valleys plead you have a peaceful stay
A stage for everyone to know when day is done
Beauty is as nature planned
In Alberta Timberland

Listen to my song of Alberta Timberland
Along the Great Divide where living is so grand
Purple sage grows in the sun by an aspen run
Beauty is as nature planned
In Alberta Timberland
      
A Cowboy Has To Yodel In the Morning  Cowboy Has To Yodel In the Morning (Larry W Jones 01/30/2013) (song#6660)

A cowboy has to yodel in the morning
Sometimes it comes about without a warning
Before he gets his breakfast
His voice starts getting restless
That’s when he starts his yodel cattle calling

And he goes, yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle!
The darndest way of wakin' yet devised!
When he goes yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle!
Looky how them longhorns git hypnotized!

Now, good ‘ol bunkhouse boys can be mean fellers
I mean they don’t like bunkhouse yodel yellers
Before he gets his boots on
They want to get his noose on
Cowboys shouldn’t yodel to bunkhouse dwellers

But he goes, yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle!
The darndest way of wakin' yet devised!
When he goes yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle!
Looky how them cowboys git hypnotized!

He can’t wait to do his yell
Been his trait for quite a spell
Though it grates on old O’dell
A cowboy has to yodel in the morning

Just look at life from a yodel point of view
Although you might disjoint a jaw bone or two
Your pay might get a docket
Or get a black eye socket
A cowboy has to yodel in the morning

And he goes, yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle!
The darndest way of wakin' yet devised!
When he goes yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle!
Looky how them longhorns git hypnotized!

Yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle!
      
Let Me Hold My Dreams Of Yesterday (Larry W Jones 01/30/2013) (song#6661)

Take away the photos that you gave me
Take away the vows that both of us gave
Take them all away today
Though my world may turn to grey
But let me hold my dreams of yesterday

Take away those sweet words that you wrote dear
When my glad heart was stirred in yesteryear
I thought they were from your heart
But now that we’re far apart
Dear, let me hold my dreams of yesterday

(instrumental)
 
Take away the true love that you promised
Take away sweetest lips that I once kissed
Take away those moonlight beams
Where my mind went to extremes
But let me hold my dreams of yesterday

All that I own, I give to you darling
Although my heart for your love is starving
Take away love’s every part
Take away my broken heart
But let me hold my dreams of yesterday

Take away my broken heart
But let me hold my dreams of yesterday
      
Cowboy Heartbreak Trail (Larry W Jones 02/03/2013) (song#6662)

I ride alone on a trail of sorrow
Over prairies wide and hill and lowly dale
I’ll be on this lonely trail tomorrow
Cause I’m riding on cowboy heartbreak trail

All my sweet dreams are scattered behind me
Only my broken heart can tell the tale
Of a cowpoke with tatters that bind me
To ride along on cowboy heartbreak trail

(instrumental)
 
I wondered if someday you would leave me
Now I know our love was to no avail
Oh, I knew that someday you would grieve me
To sing my song on cowboy heartbreak trail

All my sweet dreams are scattered behind me
Only my broken heart can tell the tale
Of a cowpoke with tatters that bind me
To ride along on cowboy heartbreak trail
      
Cowboy Jamboree (Larry W Jones 02/10/2013) (song#6663)

Hitch your horses to the railing, your troubles to the moon
Ditch your worries in the sea
From whatever you are ailing, they’ll disappear real soon
At the cowboy jamboree

If you can find just enough time, it won’t take very long
You’ll be as happy as me
Put on your boots and Stetson hat and sing a western song
At the cowboy jamboree

(instrumental)

Hear those country bumpkins playin’, just love that western swing
Let’s hear a big ‘ol whoopee
Cowboys and cowgirls are swayin’ like the wind in the Spring 
At the cowboy jamboree

If you can find just enough time, it won’t take very long
You’ll be as happy as me
Put on your boots and Stetson hat and sing a western song
At the cowboy jamboree

Put on your boots and Stetson hat and sing a western song
At the cowboy jamboree, yes siree
      
Am I Your Number One (Larry W Jones 02/12/2013) (song#6664) [Duet]

Am I your number one
When all is said and done
Dear, will you never run
Or make love come undone

Will you partake of good and bad
And not forsake or make me sad
My dear, when all my life has run
I’ll ask, am I your number one

Am I your number one? Yes you are
When all is said and done? Yes you are
Dear, will you never run? Never will
Or make love come undone? Promise still
Dear, you’re my number one
When all is said and done
Never fear my dear, for you’re my number one

(instrumental)

Am I your number one through and through
Will you be warm as the sun and true
Though there may come storms as well as blue
Please tell me you’ll be my number one

Am I your number one? Yes you are
When all is said and done? Yes you are
Dear, will you never run? Never will
Or make love come undone? Promise still
Dear, you’re my number one
When all is said and done
Never fear my dear, for you’re my number one

Darling, both of us will be each other’s number one
      
Cadillac Cul-de-sac (Larry W Jones 02/21/2013) (song#6665)

I see that rich man who lives on Cadillac Cul-de-sac
But I’m a poor man who lives on the wrong side of the track
If I was that rich man, I would leave here and not come back
But I’m a poor man who dreams of Cadillac Cul-de-sac

I see that rich man who lives on Cadillac Cul-de-sac
He drives a big new limousine that’s painted shiny black
If I was that rich man, I wouldn’t live in this old shack
I’d be a new man who lives on Cadillac Cul-de-sac

(instrumental)

There’s a lot of folks like him on Cadillac Cul-de-sac
My future is looking slim and the clouds are turning black
If I was that rich man, I would move on across the track
I would park my Chevy van on Cadillac Cul-de-sac

I see that rich man who lives on Cadillac Cul-de-sac
But I’m a poor man who lives on the wrong side of the track
If I was that rich man, I would leave here and not come back
But I’m a poor man who dreams of Cadillac Cul-de-sac

Yeah, I’m a poor man who dreams of Cadillac Cul-de-sac
      
Indian Mound (Larry W Jones 03/02/2013) (song#6666)

A sweet love I found on Indian Mound
On Indian Mound in Cherokee land
I recall the sound on Indian Mound
When my heart would pound while holding her hand

A breeze on the Cherokee Strip
Brought an Indian maiden’s love
But her love from my fingers slipped
Like the wind from heavens above

Now she is gone and nowhere to be found
No longer around on Indian Mound

(instrumental)

A breeze on the Cherokee Strip
Brought an Indian maiden’s love
But her love from my fingers slipped
Like the wind from heavens above

Now she is gone and nowhere to be found
No longer around on Indian Mound
      
More Long Trails (Larry W Jones 03/03/2013) (song#6667)

More long trails I ride lonely
Over prairies far and wide
Things that time watches closely
Never meant to cast aside
But it’s a long way back home
So I guess I’m ridin’ on
You’re the one I miss mostly
In the saddle as I ride

I might see Colorado
Those Autumn leaves will soon fall
There will be red Alpenglow
On big mountains standing tall
It’s too late to change my mind
So on lonely trails I’ll wind
Wishing somehow as I go
That you hear my lonely call

(instrumental)

I’ll be there to see the snow
Fall on trails along the woods
And it’s there that winds will blow
On my campfire and canned goods
I often think of you, dear
On the brink of lonely tears
When alone is when I know
Something was misunderstood

More long trails I ride lonely
Over prairies far and wide
Things that time watches closely
Never meant to cast aside
But it’s a long way back home
So I guess I’m ridin’ on
You’re the one I miss mostly
In the saddle as I ride

More long trails I ride lonely
Over prairies far and wide
      
A Treasure Like You (Larry W Jones 03/04/2013) (song#6668)

I’ve seen pure gold and I have seen silver
And I have seen orchids covered with dew
I’ve seen magic carpets of a weaver
But I’ve never seen a treasure like you

I’ve held fair trophies from the Olympics
From far away where silver airplanes flew
I’ve held a painting that beauty depicts
But I’ve never held a treasure like you

I’ve owned a house on White Cliffs of Dover
And I’ve owned fine things, more than just a few
But all I’ve owned, as I think it over
Dear, I’ve never owned a treasure like you

(instrumental)

I’ve held fair trophies from the Olympics
From far away where silver airplanes flew
I’ve held a painting that beauty depicts
But I’ve never held a treasure like you

I’ve owned a house on White Cliffs of Dover
And I’ve owned fine things, more than just a few
But all I’ve owned, as I think it over
Dear, I’ve never owned a treasure like you
      
The Die Has Been Cast (Larry W Jones 03/05/2013) (song#6669)

When will warm breezes cease blowing
When will pain leave my heart at last
Doesn’t the world know the die has been cast
Love died the day of your going

When will bluebirds stop their singing
When will mem’ries end of the past
Doesn’t the world know the die has been cast
Love died when bells stopped their ringing

This morning as I awoke, I asked the world when
When will my poor heart understand
Just why you let go of my hand
And how can I live to find a true love again

(instrumental)

When will my dreams stop bestowing
Sweet scenes that now only harass
Doesn’t the world know the die has been cast
Love died the day of your going

Spoken:
When will my dreams stop bestowing
Sweet scenes that now only harass

Sung:
Doesn’t the world know the die has been cast
Love died the day of your going
      
Last Run For The Roses (Larry W Jones 03/06/2013) (song#6670)

Speak to me with a smile, cheek to cheek with beguile
While I make believe we walk in clover
Try to say anything that’s currently in style
No words of talk that our love is over

I guess it’s time to face I came in second place
The look on my face somehow discloses
I played love by the book, somehow it never took
Well, this is my last run for the roses

How I wish I were the man who could understand
But what I find here in my troubled mind
Are questions as to whether I can love again
I guess the answer lies in future time

(instrumental)

How I wish I were the man who could understand
But what I find here in my troubled mind
Are questions as to whether I can love again
I guess the answer lies in future time

If I find love anew, I’ll find I still love you
For that’s what my broken heart exposes
I’ll bring some daffodils to see if you’ll fulfill
What will be my last run for the roses
      
You Can’t Take The Cowboy Out Of Me (Larry W Jones 03/07/2013) (song#6671)

Well, you can’t take the cowboy out of me
Each day I live to ride the ranges free
I want to ride across the Great Divide
And you can’t take the cowboy out of me

I’ll never grow too old to lose my way
When I’m out riding trails that bring what may
I’m bound to be a cowboy endlessly
No, you can’t take the cowboy out of me

(instrumental)

Well, you can’t take the cowboy out of me
Each day I live to ride the ranges free
I want to ride across the Great Divide
And you can’t take the cowboy out of me

I’ll never grow too old to lose my way
When I’m out riding trails that bring what may
I’m bound to be a cowboy endlessly
No, you can’t take the cowboy out of me

No siree…boy
You can’t take the cowboy out of me
      
Face On The Saloon Room Floor (Larry W Jones 03/10/2013) (song#6672)

Twas just before the high noon
When hot sun was shining down
Cowboys had filled the saloon
At the middle of the town

Bawdy songs and cowboy lies
Was heard through the swinging door
When a drifter in demise
Walked across the saloon floor

Where’d he come from, someone asked
Blown in by the prairie wind
He carries an empty flask
That once held bad snake oil gin

Hey Tony, just look at ‘im
If your eyes can stand the scag
Cause I don’t think I’d touch ‘im
Look like he’s been ridin’ drag

Their banter the drifter took
For to such he was attune
A smile was the drifter’s look
On the floor of the saloon

Now boys, be you kind of heart
Among such a cowboy gang
For I am a man of art
The old drifter to them sang

Just fill my flask with whiskey
Silver dollars I can’t show
Once I spent my money free
On good cowboys short of dough

Don’t laugh even though you think
This old drifter has no clue
Once I bought my fav’rite drink
In fine saloons just like you

Well, thank you pards, I must say
My flask is filled as before
I’ll drink whiskey this fine day
On this fine saloon wood floor

Now, I’d sing you boys a song
But my ballad days are past
My fine voice is too far gone
Like a love that didn’t last

Boys, fill up a glass of ale
Sasparilla just won’t do
And I’ll tell you boys a tale
That I swear is all too true

That I was a good Top Hand
Not a one of you would think
But I was that kind of man
Afore I started to drink

Fill up my glass again Joe
This time don’t make it so tame
There ain’t no drifter I know
Who can beat me at this game

Five fingers is my reward
So, uncork that whiskey brew
And I’ll say, saloon landlord
Best respects I’ll give to you

You’ve treated me well this time
Boys, if you’ll give me your ear
Here’s how I’m the drifter kind
That you now see standing here

I’ll repeat, I was the man
And replete with all good health
But I still can’t understand
Blunders that would end my wealth

Of artists, I was the best
On canvas, on bricks or wood
Of artists, yes, I was blessed
Mind you, I was pretty good

I worked long on one painting
Of a lady fair to eyes
I used all of my training
On a lady in disguise

Boys, my painting you’ve not seen
For it hangs without a name
But her lines are smooth and clean
As one in the Hall of Fame

The painting was real refined
And here is the Joker’s part
Her canvas eyes looked in mine
And melted my poker’s heart

Boys, don’t think I’m all shady
That a drifter such as me
Could ever have a lady
Who would share her love with me

But so it was for awhile
Rolled seven come eleven
And I was told that her smile
Made cowboys dream of Heaven

My love was with such keenness
To her, all my love I’d give
Her form was just like Venus
In beauty that lady lived

Now, her eyes would fit Queen Noor
Along with her raven hair
And of ladies I am sure
No maven was e’re so fair

I was working overtime
On a painting one fine day
When a cowboy pal of mine
Just stopped in while on his way

My lady admired the lad
And this is what I surmise
When she looked at him, she had
Never seen such dreamy eyes

Now, his name Pat O’Grady
And before much time had gone
My pal had stole my lady
And left me there all alone

Well, more than a year, I know
It was that my poor heart bled
But that love I treasured so
Finally faded, was dead

So, now boys, I took to drink
That’s why you don’t see me smile
Boys, don’t laugh or you might think
You see tears fall for awhile

Well now, what’s the matter pal
Is that a tear in your eye
She was a lady, a gal
Who could make a cowboy cry

Fill my glass with whiskey straight
And I’ll make you cowboys glad
I’ll paint right here a portrait
Of her face in beauty clad

Give me brush and paint of black
Come tomorrow through the door
I’ll finish e’re you come back
Her face on the saloon room floor

More whiskey and brush in hand
The drifter’s portrait began
He painted a face as planned
One that stole the heart of man

The bartender turned the lock
On the saloon with such dread
For there at just six o’clock
The old drifter’s face was dead

Give me brush and paint of black
Come tomorrow through the door
I’ll finish e’re you come back
Her face on the saloon room floor
      
You Changed Everything To Nothing (Larry W Jones 03/11/2013) (song#6673)

You changed everything to nothing
Oh, but now it doesn’t matter anyhow
Dear, I thought that you were loving
You changed everything to nothing for me now

Love was easy when it was new
Dear, I never changed a thing in loving you
Now you’ve changed your mind through and through
You changed everything to nothing I once knew

(instrumental)

You changed everything to nothing
Oh, but now it doesn’t matter anyhow
Dear, I thought that you were loving
You changed everything to nothing for me now

Love was easy when it was new
Dear, I never changed a thing in loving you
Now you’ve changed your mind through and through
You changed everything to nothing I once knew

But dear, nothing’s changed in my loving you
      
Stranded At Low Tide (Larry W Jones 03/16/2013) (song#6674)

Water is deep in the harbor
And dear, I hope that you’re still mine
But if new love keeps your ardor
Dear, I’ll be stranded at low tide

I have sailed the seven oceans
I know you’ve waited a long time
If for new love you’ve emotion
Dear, I’ll be stranded at low tide

(instrumental)

Many moons have passed, my darling
And soon I’ll know about your vow
My poor heart will break from starving
If time should show love’s over now

I have sailed the seven oceans
I know you’ve waited a long time
If for new love you’ve emotion
Dear, I’ll be stranded at low tide
      
I’ll Never Live A Day Not Loving You (Larry W Jones 03/18/2013) (song#6675)

I’ll never dine or spend my time alone
For that would be a way to make me blue
You’ll be forevermore my only song
I’ll never live a day not loving you

Last night I dreamed of you in memory
Today you’re still as fresh as morning dew
It’s just the way my mind finds reverie
I’ll never live a day not loving you

I’ll never live a day not loving you
It’s the one way I find to make it through
Dear, I can’t say on who the blame is due
I’ll never live a day not loving you

(instrumental)

Last night I dreamed of you in memory
Today you’re still as fresh as morning dew
It’s just the way my mind finds reverie
I’ll never live a day not loving you

Dear, I can’t say on who the blame is due
I’ll never live a day not loving you

I’ll never live a day not loving you
      
New Dust Cover (Larry W Jones 03/18/2013) (song#6676)

Same old girl in new dust cover
I just discovered through my friends
Same old girl in new dust cover
Just came back into view again

They say you have now recovered
But I cannot believe their lies
Same old girl in new dust cover
You just can’t look straight in my eyes
Same old girl in new dust cover
Dear, I can’t trust your new disguise

(instrumental)

They say you have now recovered
But I cannot believe their lies
Same old girl in new dust cover
You just can’t look straight in my eyes

But my heart cannot oppose you
I suppose feelings can’t be crushed
You’re the same old girl I once knew
Just your image is newly brushed
Same old girl in new dust cover
Same lover I’ll still love again
      
Riding With An Old Top Hand (Larry W Jones 03/19/2013) (song#6677)

Riding with an old top hand
On the twilight trail
Down along the Rio Grande
Over hill and dale

Songs we sing in the Spring when we’re gathering the herd to brand 
On the ranch by a branch and where just by chance a fish we’ll land
One of these days I’ll be an older man and an old top hand
Down along the Rio Grande

(instrumental)

Riding with an old top hand
On the twilight trail
Down along the Rio Grande
Over hill and dale

Songs we sing in the Spring when we’re gathering the herd to brand 
On the ranch by a branch and where just by chance a fish we’ll land
One of these days I’ll be an older man and an old top hand
Down along the Rio Grande

Riding with an old top hand
On the twilight trail
      
An Armful From Lonely (Larry W Jones 03/19/2013) (song#6678)

I’m just an armful from lonely
When I’m only this far from you
Dear, I feel this way every day
An armful from lonely for you

I’m a dream away from waking
Sleep walking the floor over you
In my heart I find I’m aching
Talking to the door, feeling blue

Dear, you know that it would grieve me
If my arms are not full of you
But you show you’re gonna leave me
I’m an armful from being blue

(instrumental)

Dear, you know that it would grieve me
If my arms are not full of you
But you show you’re gonna leave me
I’m an armful from being blue

Arms that were full are unwinding
I know it’s sad to say but true
It’s too bad but now I’m finding
An armful from lonely for you
      
Wolverton Mountain Man (Larry W Jones 03/20/2013) (song#6679) 

Well, I was just a young lad going with the flow
When I first heard Claude King sing on the radio
I was at a soda fountain in Louisian
Listnin’ ‘bout a big bad Wolverton Mountain man

Now, old man Clowers made good hard liquor brandy
With a gun and a knife he was mighty handy
He had a pretty young daughter with raven hair
But Wolverton bears and birds protected her there

(instrumental)

Now I’m an older man and time goes marching on
And it was in March when I heard Claude King was gone
I wonder if he ever kissed Clifton’s daughter’s sweet lips
Or if he married that girl on one of his trips

I know Claude King climbed up on Wolverton Mountain
Cause all of his dreams were with that young girl he loved
He took his chances up on Wolverton Mountain
It was too lonesome down below than up above

Well, I was just a young lad going with the flow
When I first heard Claude King sing on the radio
Up on that Wolverton Mountain he loved her so
      
It Ain’t Easy Gettin’ Even (Larry W Jones 03/23/2013) (song#6680)

Well now, it ain’t easy gettin’ even
Even if it’s fittin’, it just ain’t wise
It makes you blue no matter what you do
So you might as well learn to compromise

One night I saw my sweetheart out dancin’
Romancin’ someone else out on the floor
I stepped in between, really made a scene
And got my fool self knocked right out the door

Well now, it ain’t easy gettin’ even
Even if it’s fittin’, it just ain’t wise
It makes you blue no matter what you do
So you might as well learn to compromise

(instrumental)

I called her up the next day and told her
About the way she double crossed my mind
My sweetheart I bossed even though I lost 
And this is the only thing I now find

Well now, it ain’t easy gettin’ even
Even if it’s fittin’, it just ain’t wise
It makes you blue no matter what you do
So you might as well learn to compromise

Even if it’s fittin’, it just ain’t wise
So you might as well learn to compromise
      
Under A Full Western Moon (Larry W Jones 03/30/2013) (song#6681)

Boys in the bunkhouse are rarin’ to go
Calico girls are ready for the show

Smooth guitars are playing on Friday night
Couples are swaying round a campfire bright
Fiddlers set the pattern for two hearts to swoon
Under a full western moon

A full moon’s shining in the west tonight
The man in the moon did his best alright
Hearts are combining to a lover’s tune
Under a full western moon

(instrumental)

Cowgirls are sighing, dancing with cowboys
Children are spying, making lots of noise
Somewhere in the darkness, coyotes howl
Followed by the call of an old barn owl

A full moon’s shining in the west tonight
The man in the moon did his best alright
Hearts are combining to a lover’s tune
Under a full western moon
      
My Heartache Is Colored You (Larry W Jones 04/02/2013) (song#6682)

I never knew heartaches had a color
Except that they were pictured colored blue
Your love was a shiny silver dollar
Now I find my heartache is colored you

I tried all the bright lights of the city
But now they only break my heart in two
I can’t stop crying and that’s a pity
Cause I find my heartache is colored you

Time will not mend my blue colored heartache
You’ll be on my mind all the long year through
I don’t know how much my poor heart can take
Cause I find my heartache is colored you

(instrumental)

I tried all the bright lights of the city
But now they only break my heart in two
I can’t stop crying and that’s a pity
Cause I find my heartache is colored you

Time will not mend my blue colored heartache
You’ll be on my mind all the long year through
I don’t know how much my poor heart can take
Cause I find my heartache is colored you

Dear, I find my heartache is colored you
      
Long Trail Of This Cowboy’s Memories (Larry W Jones 04/08/2013) (song#6683)

There’s an old broken down corral on a ghost town chaparral
Where I used to listen to the western breeze
On a ranch there I was born to a life I could never scorn
Down the long trail of this cowboy’s memories

Well, have you ever gone riding down the trail of memories
Where never was heard a discouraging word 
And where the sun made you weary but life was never dreary
On a ranch nestled among cottonwood trees

(instrumental)

To my dear mother I’ll explain at the end of mem’ry lane
Why it took so long to return and beg please
Forgive your own forgetful son for the trails that he has run
Down the long trail of this cowboy’s memories

Shadows of the twilight bring memories of when life was right
Right back to days those golden that used to be
And the only answer to my prayer will find me riding there
Down the long trail of this cowboy’s memories
      
Annette (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2013) (song#6684)

Well, there's a little Mouseketeer lookin' real good 
And she's churnin' up the surf like I knew she would 
She's on her way to Disneyland , I’ll bet
Cause she’s got the whole country out of breath

Annette, sweet dancin’ Mouseketeer, Annette
She’s a singin’ California brunette
My heart gets to pumpin’ up a big sweat
For Annette, that sweet Mouseketeer, Annette

Well, I feel like a lucky boy, she brings me joy
Beach Blanket Bingo makes me give a shout, Ahoy
The cutest movie queen I ever met
She’s Annette, that sweet Mouseketeer, Annette

(instrumental)

Well, I feel like a lucky boy, she brings me joy
Beach Blanket Bingo makes me give a shout, Ahoy
The cutest movie queen I ever met
She’s Annette, that sweet Mouseketeer, Annette

The Mickey Mouse Club was a television scene
With a nice vision that made every boyhood’s dream
She was the prettiest girl, everybody’s pet
Sweet Annette, that sweet Mouseketeer, Annette
      
Forty Niner Gold (Larry W Jones 04/11/2013) (song#6685)

Miner of silver, forty-niner gold
When love is in trouble, it’s love that’s cold
My heart you have gambled and torn apart
Silver and gold is a just purple heart

Miner of silver, forty-niner gold
When love deals you double, it’s love that’s cold
You deal from the bottom and hearts will pay
The big wheel of fortune won’t spin your way

You were my queen, I thought I was a king
A fool's silver and gold don’t mean a thing
Miner of silver, forty-niner gold
Love is in trouble when a love grows cold

(instrumental)

Miner of silver, forty-niner gold
When love deals you double, it’s love that’s cold
You deal from the bottom and hearts will pay
The big wheel of fortune won’t spin your way

You were my queen, I thought I was a king
A fool's silver and gold don’t mean a thing
Miner of silver, forty-niner gold
Love is in trouble when a love grows cold

Miner of silver, forty-niner gold
      
More Than This Cowboy Could Give (Larry W Jones 04/13/2013) (song#6686)

There rides a cowgirl who once owned my heart
A lifetime of trails have led us apart
Her love was a dream this cowboy once had
But she wanted more than clothes made of plaid
Yes, she wanted more than clothes made of plaid

She taught me to love then taught me to cry
I ought to have learned from tears in my eye
My love is offered as long as I live
She wanted more than this cowboy could give
She wanted more than this cowboy could give

Her ranch is a mansion on the high hill
But she is the cowgirl in my eye still
She’s this cowboy’s love as long as I live
She wanted more than this cowboy could give
She wanted more than this cowboy could give

(instrumental)

Her ranch is a mansion on the high hill
But she is the cowgirl in my eye still
She’s this cowboy’s love as long as I live
She wanted more than this cowboy could give
She wanted more than this cowboy could give

My love is offered as long as I live
She wanted more than this cowboy could give
She wanted more than this cowboy could give
      
Stage Mail (Larry W Jones 04/13/2013) (song#6687) 

The stage mail arrived and dear, your letter was there
It was opened with cheer and with diligent care
Then I read your lines with disbelief and dismay
I almost lost my mind with the stage mail today

I guess I’ll never know dear, what became of you
On this long cattle drive I thought you would be true
But now it’s all over and my skies have turned grey
I’m bound for a rover with the stage mail today

(instrumental)

I guess I’ll never know dear, what became of you
On this long cattle drive I thought you would be true
But now it’s all over and my skies have turned grey
I’m bound for a rover with the stage mail today

Dear, now it’s all over and my skies have turned grey
I’m bound for a rover with the stage mail today
I’m bound for a rover with the stage mail today
With the stage mail today
      
This Last Cattle Drive (Larry W Jones 04/15/2013) (song#6688)

Now, how can a cowboy save a dollar
I thought as the trail boss doled out my pay
Seems like it’s gettin’ smaller and smaller
Than cattle drives I rode on yesterday

The drive ends at the yard of the railroad
And we cowboys did our very best part
On my broad shoulders I don’t need this load
Just like I don’t need a hole in my heart

I’m gonna ride back down the trail o’er the prairie
And ride down a trail where love I can find
I’m gonna ride back down the trail o’er the prairie
And I’ll leave this last cattle drive behind

(instrumental)

Now, how can a cowboy wed a woman
When he’s ridin’ along on shaky ground
She deserves more than this poor cattleman
Can afford to make her world go around

I’m gonna trade in my spurs and saddle
Find me a job that pays well in pure gold
Then I’ll marry that woman and cuddle
Like I should have done a long time ago

I’m gonna ride back down the trail o’er the prairie
And ride down a trail where love I can find
I’m gonna ride back down the trail o’er the prairie
And I’ll leave this last cattle drive behind
      
George Jones (Larry W Jones 04/26/2013) (song#6689)

He said I’ll sing until I die
And then on wings I’ll carry on
The songs he sang were mournful cries
From his own life they all were drawn

At eighty one he topped them all
Just as he’d done from way back when
Now George resides in that big hall
Of country fame with other men

He kept a pencil by his bed
And his guitar he kept there too
The songs he wrote were in his head
To play whenever he felt blue

Crowds went to see George yesterday
They shouted loud and with no tears
Now they’re all sad he went away
But they’ll remember him for years

(instrumental)

George Jones stopped singing songs today
A wreath they placed upon his door
All men are made from lowly clay
George Jones stopped singing songs today

(spoken)
Oh, we all knew that George was marking time
And we all wondered if he really could
Make that last performance he had in mind
Before the door closed on George Jones for good

George Jones stopped singing songs today
A wreath they placed upon his door
All men are made from lowly clay
George Jones stopped singing songs today
      
Slim Whitman (Larry W Jones 06/19/2013) (song#6690)

Slim Whitman had a Secret Love
Rose Marie was her Irish name
But then Tomorrow Never Comes
And for Slim, It’s All In The Game

Slim sang the Indian Love Call
But the North Wind stole Rose Marie
And Love Song Of The Waterfall
Had Slim’s poor heart Broken In Three

Slim’s songs rang from the Singing Hills
But One Dream was never to be
Where The Lilacs Grow there now trills
I Remember You, Rose Marie

(instrumental)

Slim sang the Indian Love Call
But the North Wind stole Rose Marie
And Love Song Of The Waterfall
Had Slim’s poor heart Broken In Three

Slim’s songs rang from the Singing Hills
But One Dream was never to be
Where The Lilacs Grow there now trills
I Remember You, Rose Marie

Slim Whitman had a Secret Love
Rose Marie was her Irish name 
      
Look Back And Look At Me (Larry W Jones 07/04/2013) (song#6691)

Someone behind you is on bended knee
Look back and look at me
True love will find you, please don’t wait and see
Look back and look at me

I am that someone, oh please hear my plea
Look back and look at me
I really love you, so reach for my hand
Look back, I’ll be your man

(instrumental)

You will find someone with love’s master key
Look back and look at me
I will unlock love for eternity
Look back and look at me

Don’t keep on passing, as waves on the sea
Look back and look at me
I really love you, I need you to hold
Look back, let love unfold

Look back, look back and true love you will see  
Look back and look at me
      
Tall In A Western Saddle
 (Larry W Jones 07/06/2013) (song#6692)

Oh, he rode tall in a western saddle
And pinned to his vest was a Texas star
When bad outlaws saw him, they all scattered
But he knew the badlands and where they are

That Texas Ranger had no fear
Just one riot he had to tame
When he rode up, it was so clear
That Ranger was a man of fame

Tall Ranger Bill McDonald rode the West
From Dallas to El Paso and Langtry
For justice, law and order, he was best
Outlaws feared big Bill and the hanging tree

(instrumental)

Texas needed men who knew right from wrong
And big Bill McDonald was just the man
In a western saddle he rode along
And it did them no good when outlaws ran

That Texas Ranger had no fear
Just one riot he had to tame
When he rode up, it was so clear
That Ranger was a man of fame

Tall Ranger Bill McDonald rode the West
From Dallas to El Paso and Langtry
For justice, law and order, he was best
Outlaws feared big Bill and the hanging tree

Oh, he rode tall in a western saddle
Outlaws feared big Bill and the hanging tree
      
That’s All (Larry W Jones 07/08/2013) (song#6693)

Now, you’ve got that Texas ring in your talk
How about that Texas swing in your walk
You’ve got the bluest eyes, I realize
Oh, you’re the Texas gal for me, that’s all

That’s all, yes that’s all
And I’ll tell them all with my Texas drawl
At the big barn dance I’ll be in a trance
When we’re out there on the floor with romance
Oh, you’re the Texas gal for me, that’s all
 
(instrumental)

Now, you’ve got that Texas ring in your talk
How about that Texas swing in your walk
You’ve got the bluest eyes, I realize
Oh, you’re the Texas gal for me, that’s all

That’s all, yes that’s all
And I’ll tell them all with my Texas drawl
At the big barn dance we’ll two-step and prance
When you’re out there on the floor in hot pants
Oh, you’re the Texas gal for me, that’s all

That’s all, yes that’s all
I mean to tell Y’all, that’s all
      
Match Box Fire (Larry W Jones 07/08/2013) (song#6694)

Our love is a match box fire, struck to keep us warm
We won’t catch cold when we’re stuck in each other’s arms

We’re gonna set the woods on fire, then let it burn
Our love is a match box fire is what I discern

The vows we made are attached to our hearts for good
They will never fade, I don’t need to knock on wood

Our love is a match box fire, struck to keep us warm
We won’t catch cold when we’re stuck in each other’s arms

(instrumental)

We’re gonna melt any snow that falls on the ground
Our love is a match box fire that will stay around

We’re gonna stick together as love grows higher
Just like a box of match sticks when they’re set on fire

Our love is a match box fire, struck to keep us warm
We won’t catch cold when we’re stuck in each other’s arms

Our love is a match box fire
A match box fire to keep us warm
      
Always Say No To Never (Larry W Jones 07/09/2013) (song#6695)

If you’re watchin’ movies with your date at the drive-in
And you pull her closer for a kiss but she says never
Dive in with a line so clever, she’ll like your endeavor 
Always say no to never

Always say no to never when it comes down to datin’
She’ll come around to common ground if you’re smooth and clever
So take a chance on romance instead of sittin’, waitin’
Always say no to never

Try a little wooin’ if you want to hear some cooin’
You never know but true love might grow and last forever
Take her no with a grin and never give in whatsoever
Always say no to never

(instrumental)

Always say no to never when it comes down to datin’
She’ll come around to common ground if you’re smooth and clever
So take a chance on romance instead of sittin’, waitin’
Always say no to never

Try a little wooin’ if you want to hear some cooin’
You never know but true love might grow and last forever
Take her no with a grin and never give in whatsoever
Always say no to never

Never, ever give in
Always say no to never
      
When Teardrops Fell On A Fallen Heart (Larry W Jones 07/11/2013) (song#6696)

A good old friend passed away today
Folks say that bad whiskey played a part
But more was callin’ return to clay
When teardrops fell on a fallen heart

He loved a woman but I did too
And he lost before true love could start
He was a broken man, feeling blue
When teardrops fell on a fallen heart

Her one love was meant for only me
So, he failed at love right from the start
He tried so well but just couldn’t see
When teardrops fell on a fallen heart

(instrumental)

He loved a woman but I did too
And he lost before true love could start
He was a broken man, feeling blue
When teardrops fell on a fallen heart

Her one love was meant for only me
So, he failed at love right from the start
He tried so well but just couldn’t see
When teardrops fell on a fallen heart

A good old friend passed away today
When teardrops fell on a fallen heart
      
That Neon Glow (Larry W Jones 07/12/2013) (song#6697)

That neon glow puts on a show that plays upon your heart
Fun time begins and only ends when daylight says depart
It seems so strange how you have changed and turned into a flirt
Dear, don’t you know that neon glow doesn’t care who it hurts

Neon glow doesn’t care who it hurts
Like sun on skin that’s fair it will burn
Long blond hair falls down your cowgirl shirt
Neon glow has no point of return

Neon glow doesn’t care who it hurts
Just like hot stars, neon lights will will scar your very soul
Stop now or you’ll get your just deserts
That neon glow is just for show and soon will take its toll

(instrumental)

Neon glow doesn’t care who it hurts
Like sun on skin that’s fair it will burn
Long blond hair falls down your cowgirl shirt
Neon glow has no point of return

Neon glow doesn’t care who it hurts
Just like hot stars, neon lights will will scar your very soul
Stop now or you’ll get your just deserts
That neon glow is just for show and soon will take its toll

That neon glow puts on a show that plays upon your heart
      
I’m Over Going Under Over You (Larry W Jones 07/15/2013) (song#6698)

I know everybody’s talking about me now
How I’ve been walking with a frown upon my brow
But starting today things will be brand new
I’m over going under over you

Now, those old honky tonks have been dear to my heart
Tears fell in my beer when you said we had to part
But now the time to change my mind is due
I’m over going under over you

Well, I heard them say that I used to be a man
That was before you left on a train to Spokane
But that train told me what I now must do
I’m over going under over you

(instrumental)

A Black magic woman I couldn’t tell
Just how you pulled my strings I had no clue
Well, I’m over going under your spell
I’m over going under over you

Now, those old honky tonks have been dear to my heart
Tears fell in my beer when you said we had to part
But now the time to change my mind is due
I’m over going under over you

Well, I heard them say that I used to be a man
That was before you left on a train to Spokane
But that train told me what I now must do
I’m over going under over you

Yeah, that train told me what I now must do
I’m over going under over you
      
Little Brown Jug Of Tears
 (Larry W Jones 07/16/2013) (song#6699)

With pranks I’ve ranked high many times
With games I’ve aimed at plenty minds
Vest pockets filled with best of gold
Like rockets gone when love grew cold

Now I hold a little brown jug of tears
My face has turned into a mug of fears
The rug was pulled out from under my cheers
Now I’m in a little brown jug of tears

Man of fame was my middle name
It began but ended in shame
I was a fool for many years
Penny wise in a jug of tears

(instrumental)

Now I hold a little brown jug of tears
My face has turned into a mug of fears
The rug was pulled out from under my cheers
Now I’m in a little brown jug of tears

Man of fame was my middle name

Penny wise in a jug of tears

My face has turned into a mug of fears
Now I’m in a little brown jug of tears
Yes, I’m in a little brown jug of tears
Oh, I’m in a little brown jug of tears
      
Serenade Of The Saddle (Larry W Jones 07/17/2013) (song#6700)

Dear, don’t you cry for me tonight
I’m riding home, I’m riding home
Don’t let your eyes dim like twilight
I’m riding home, I’m riding home

All cowboys on the trail, hear me
Through my travails, I’m so weary
This wrangler will never more roam
I’m riding home, I’m riding home

Boys, listen to the serenade of the saddle 
My saddle song is a lone cowboy’s melody
Boys, listen to the serenade of the saddle 
One day you cowboys may sing the same song as me

Treat me easy and ride me right
And when you’re in stride, cinch me tight
You’re riding home, you’re riding home
I’m your saddle, your home tonight

(instrumental)

Uphill Kind Of Love (Larry W Jones 07/18/2013) (song#6701)

I’ve got an uphill kind of love for the girl in the vale
I’ve got a big mountain to move for the girl in the dale
Cause I want to marry, but oh, she just wants to tarry
I’ve got an uphill kind of love for the girl in the vale

Her sweet name is Gail and she lives by the stream in the vale
She herds the milk cows up the slope like a dream in detail
I’ve tried every way to get her to say she will marry
But all she will do is make me feel blue and to tarry

I’ve got an uphill kind of love for the girl in the vale
I’ve got a big mountain to move for the girl in the dale
Cause I want to marry, but oh, she just wants to tarry
I’ve got an uphill kind of love for the girl in the vale

(instrumental)

In a shady glen I hoped her hand to win yesterday
I told that young lady that I’d be her man right away
She turned up her nose and there did compose why she tarried
Sweet love songs you’ve sung but I am too young to be married

I’ve got an uphill kind of love for the girl in the vale
I’ve got a big mountain to move for the girl in the dale
Cause I want to marry, but oh, she just wants to tarry
I’ve got an uphill kind of love for the girl in the vale

I’ve got an uphill kind of love for the girl in the vale
      
Long Neck To A Lone Wreck (Larry W Jones 07/19/2013) (song#6702)

Now, don’t ask why I’m not cheerful
Or why my voice is kinda slurred
Don’t ask why my eyes are tearful
To me such questions sound absurd

Happiness was fully mine until her shoes walked out the door
Emptiness is empty rooms and empty long necks on the floor
She sent a Dear John letter and said our dreams did not concur
I went from a Lone Star long neck to a lone wreck over her   

Down and out waking up alone
This old house ain’t the home I knew
From happy to sorrow I’m known
A long neck to a lone wreck too

(instrumental)

Down and out waking up alone
This old house ain’t the home I knew
From happy to sorrow I’m known
A long neck to a lone wreck too

Happiness was fully mine until her shoes walked out the door
Emptiness is empty rooms and empty long necks on the floor
She sent a Dear John letter and said our dreams did not concur
I went from a Lone Star long neck to a lone wreck over her

Lone Star long neck to a lone wreck over her
Long neck to a lone wreck over her
      
I Remembered My Amnesia Today (Larry W Jones 07/21/2013) (song#6703)

I named her Amnesia the day she left
Because I knew I’d forget her in time
I said that was all with love now bereft
I wouldn’t recall just when she was mine

I’d forgotten how far I’d been taken
With my own true love forsaken her way
But when she walked by tears fell from my eyes
I remembered my Amnesia today

Old Father Time had been slowly healing
Skies had turned blue that were cloudy and grey
Blue turned to black when thoughts came back stealing
I remembered my Amnesia today

(instrumental)

She walked on by without a trace of care
Her form had the grace a queen would display
I knew I had seen our past love affair 
I remembered my Amnesia today

Old Father Time had been slowly healing
Skies had turned blue that were cloudy and grey
Blue turned to black when thoughts came back stealing
I remembered my Amnesia today

Old Father Time had been slowly healing
Skies had turned blue that were cloudy and grey
Blue turned to black when thoughts came back stealing
I remembered my Amnesia today
      
I’m Not Concerned
 (Larry W Jones 07/22/2013) (song#6704)

I’m not concerned of what the future leads to
Whether it be wheat or weeds I have no clue
I don’t care but my hands will still guide the plow
I’m not concerned since love was spurned anyhow

It will take some years, my dear, to forget you
My own love was true and I thought yours was too
That’s in the past and there’s no sweat on my brow
I’m not concerned since love was spurned anyhow

(instrumental)

My dear, your departure took me by surprise
Father Time is marching on and makes one wise
It will take some time before I once more vow
I’m not concerned since love was spurned anyhow

After night has turned to day I’ll forget you
Anyway I’ll try although I might be blue
Life goes on and what it brings me I’ll allow
I’m not concerned since love was spurned anyhow
      
One September Morning (Larry W Jones 07/23/2013) (song#6705)

One September morning
I’m riding along with my pals
September we’ll spend til the end at the roundup corral
Then we’ll sing of our gals
We’ll herd cattle for miles
With our smiles and our cowboy songs
Our cattle call we’ll recall after September is gone
Well after September is gone

This September morning
I’m riding along with my pals
September is here and we are near the big chaparral 
A familiar locale
Rocking in the saddle
Reins on the bridle lightly drawn
Our cattle call we’ll recall after September is gone
Well after September is gone

(instrumental)

Rocking in the saddle
Reins on the bridle lightly drawn

One September morning
I’m riding along with my pals
September we’ll spend til the end at the roundup corral
Then we’ll sing of our gals
We’ll herd cattle for miles
With our smiles and our cowboy songs
Our cattle call we’ll recall after September is gone
Well after September is gone
      
Ocho Rio (Larry W Jones 07/28/2013) (song#6706)

I rode into Reno feelin’ real proud
Thinkin’ of pleasin’ that Reno rodeo crowd
The line boss said with a grin and chuckle
Gold buckle to the man who rides Ocho Rio

Ocho Rio was an ornery cuss
All good cowboys before had lost more than their pride
I took hold of the reins, said times have changed
That cayuse won’t be loose til the end of my ride

I swung into the saddle, reins in hand
Ocho Rio was rattled with eyes opened wide
That’s when I saw the cowgirl in the stands
She had a worried look about my cowboy hide

Ocho Rio was an ornery cuss
All good cowboys before had lost more than their pride
I took hold of the reins, said times have changed
That cayuse won’t be loose til the end of my ride

His head he tucked and then he bucked so high
I looked a wreck around his neck with eye to eye
I saw the sky and then I saw the dirt
My mind was addled as I saw the coming hurt

Ocho Rio was an ornery cuss
All good cowboys before had lost more than their pride
I lost hold of the reins, legs rearranged
That ornery cuss had just ended my best ride

Well, I awoke in the emergency
Where that cowgirl from the rodeo was my nurse
With urgency I coerced her first name
She said, marry me and our last will be the same

Ocho Rio, you’re an ornery cuss
I made a fuss but I got married just the same
Ocho Rio, you’re an ornery cuss
I’m married to that cowgirl nurse and you’re to blame

I’m married to that cowgirl nurse
It ain’t a curse but Ocho Rio, you’re to blame
Ocho Rio, you’re to blame
      
Any Loving Care You Can Spare (Larry W Jones 07/28/2013) (song#6707)

Dear, if you have any unused cuddles
Remaining from your many love affairs
Those don’t scuttle, cause I want to huddle
I need any loving care you can spare

Now dear, if you have only a minute
And you find yourself lonely anywhere
I’ll be your old friend on who you depend
I need any loving care you can spare

I don’t need more heartaches to make me blue
But one more from you I think I can bear
I loved you once before, now love me more
I need any loving care you can spare

(instrumental)

Now dear, if you have only a minute
And you find yourself lonely anywhere
I’ll be your old friend on who you depend
I need any loving care you can spare

But one more from you I think I can bear
I loved you once before, now love me more
I need any loving care you can spare
      
I Love You Only (Larry W Jones 07/28/2013) (song#6708)

I love you only
Yes darling, I swear it’s true
For you only, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do
To prove my love for you

I love you only
Yes darling, and tenderly
With you only, I would spend eternity
To prove my love is true

Through stormy weather
We’d be together
I’d love forever
You only my sweet

(instrumental)

I love you only
Yes darling, and tenderly
With you only, I would spend eternity
To prove my love is true

Through stormy weather
We’d be together
I’d love forever
You only my sweet

I love you only
Yes darling, and tenderly
With you only, I would spend eternity
To prove my love is true
      
Back Street Opry Cowboy (Larry W Jones 07/29/2013) (song#6709)

He plays back street bars where no stars are found
In western suits real country roots he shows
The back street opry cowboy makes his rounds
And sings his songs until the bars all close

His songs are all about the good old days
Good old Faded Love and other requests
He sings them loud through the room's smoky haze
The back street opry cowboy gives his best

Always in his mind is a dream of fame
Roy Acuff, Roy Rogers, and other Roys
Only in bars they seem to know his name
It’s home to the back street opry cowboy

(instrumental)

His songs are all about the good old days
Good old Faded Love and other requests
He sings them loud through the room's smoky haze
The back street opry cowboy gives his best

Always in his mind is a dream of fame
Roy Acuff, Roy Rogers, and other Roys
Only in bars they seem to know his name
It’s home to the back street opry cowboy

He plays back street bars where no stars are found
The back street opry cowboy makes his rounds
      
Return To Dreamy Hollow (Larry W Jones 07/30/2013) (song#6710)

Dreaming now of yesterday
You and I were in love so
Night time bright stars light my way
Where I now must fondly go

Neath a willow, velvet sky
Golden moonlight softly beams
On my pillow I will fly
To you again in sweet dreams

Return to dreamy hollow
Where I first met darling you
My dreams I now must follow
Of your sweetheart eyes of blue

(instrumental)

In shadows you are calling
Just the way you used to do
Soft moonlight now is falling
Where I first met darling you

Return to dreamy hollow
Where I first met darling you
My dreams I now must follow
Of your sweetheart eyes of blue

Return to dreamy hollow
Where I first met darling you
      
Railway Hostess (Larry W Jones 08/01/2013) (song#6711)

She was a railway hostess and one of the best
Some say her destination was plain
She was good looking while serving folks the cooking
Now she’s looking to roll home again

From Grand Central Station to throughout the nation
On iron horses she served four courses 
That was her beginning but then came the ending
Now she’s looking to roll home again

(instrumental)

She was a railway hostess and one of the best
Some say her destination was plain
She was a first class rider, now an outsider 
And she’s looking to roll home again

A big cigar smoker she knew was a joker
Promised her a mansion and rich things
She took all of his money, said thank you honey
And boarded a train to New Orleans

(instrumental) 

Now the railway hostess can’t afford the postage
To ship her belongings on a train
The fancy railcar is gone and she’s all alone
She hears Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain

She was a railway hostess and one of the best
Some say her destination was plain
She was good looking while serving folks the cooking
Now she’s looking to roll home again

She hears Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain
      
Breakdown For The Blues (Larry W Jones 08/02/2013) (song#6712)

Well, the postman is late and here I wait
My mind is in a real bad state
And just where you are bound I’ve got no news
I’m in a break down for the blues

Darlin’ you don’t know the harm you have done
Don’t you know you’re my only one
On my brow is a frown all around town
I’m in a break down for the blues

(instrumental)

Dear, when I go home, you will still be gone
Why did you have to go and roam
I’m walking the floor in these worn out shoes
I’m in a break down for the blues
 
I’ve got your picture autographed with love
On behalf of the moon above
When it comes to love, some win and some lose
I’m in a break down for the blues
      
All My Heart Yearns For Is Forever (Larry W Jones 08/15/2013) (song#6713)

All my heart yearns for is forever
For you and me to be together
Cause you’re all I want to ever see

Dear, you’re my mark, my inspiration
And you have sparked my dedication
All my heart yearns for is you and me

When I feel down and so despondent
You’re around to be my respondent 
All my heart yearns for is so alive

You’re my partner when I am lonesome
And my doctor who makes love wholesome
Step by step we’ll both walk side by side

(instrumental)

All my heart yearns for is forever
For you and me to be together
Cause you’re all I want to ever see

Just you and me with just each other
We’ll cross seven seas and discover
All our hearts yearn for is forever

All my heart yearns for is forever
For you and me to be together
Cause you’re all I want to ever see
      
Old Death Valley Dan (Larry W Jones 08/17/2013) (song#6714)

Well, my ride had just begun to a cattle run
Trav’lin’ cross Death Valley in the hot Summer sun
My throat was dry and my dream was down in the dump
Until I saw what seemed to be a water pump

An illusion kin be confusion to a man
But it weren’t no delusion, that tin coffee can
In it was a note that said the seal may be dry
But other cowpokes were glad they gave it a try

So go ahead and prime the pump and just believe
Cause cowboy, you must give while you live to receive
You can drink your fill and then fill your water can
Just leave some for goodwill, wrote old Death Valley Dan

Old Death Valley Dan said you need to prime the pump
With water left for seed neath that old dried out stump
There’s just enough to prime it, go slow and time it
A wet seal will last, but pump it fast to prime it

So go ahead and prime the pump and just believe
Cause cowboy, you must give while you live to receive
You can drink your fill and then fill your water can
Just leave some for goodwill, wrote old Death Valley Dan

I found Dan’s canteen full of water sweet and clean
It was just the prettiest thing my eyes had seen
I needed a drink but I had to just believe
Cause Dan said you must give while you live to receive

I poured the water in and made that handle jump
That’s when I heard the sound of a primed water pump
I drank my fill, watered my horse and filled the can
As I recalled the words of old Death Valley Dan

So go ahead and prime the pump and just believe
Cause cowboy, you must give while you live to receive
You can drink your fill and then fill your water can
Just leave some for goodwill, wrote old Death Valley Dan

You can drink your fill and then fill your water can
Just leave some for goodwill, wrote old Death Valley Dan
      
Railroad Tramp (Larry W Jones 08/17/2013) (song#6715)

Next to a railroad water tank one damp December day
On the cold floor of a boxcar a railroad tramp there lay
His old buddy sat beside him with tears that made him choke
He listened to the final words the railroad tramp then spoke

I’m riding to a greener land where all is well and right
Where everyone shows charity and knows my dismal plight
When I die and say goodbye I will live my hobo’s dream
There I will reside where rye whiskey fills the valley stream 

Relate to all, both big and small, my railroad time is due
Bud, just tell them that I’ll be on the main line going through
Give them my best for I must rest and tell then do not weep
Under the sun my trav’lin’s done and now I go to sleep

I’m riding to a greener land where all is well and right
Where everyone shows charity and knows my dismal plight
When I die and say goodbye I will live my hobo’s dream
There I will reside where rye whiskey fills the valley stream 

Buddy, I hear a whistle and the train is drawing nigh
It must be that midnight zephyr aboard which I must fly
The railroad tramp gave his last food stamp for the outbound main
To his old buddy and boarded the midnight zephyr train

I’m riding to a greener land where all is well and right
Where everyone shows charity and knows my dismal plight
When I die and say goodbye I will live my hobo’s dream
There I will reside where rye whiskey fills the valley stream 

When I die and say goodbye I will live my hobo’s dream
There I will reside where rye whiskey fills the valley stream
      
When She Saw My Face In The Moon (Larry W Jones 08/17/2013) (song#6716)

When she saw my face in the moon
That’s when she smiled and winked at me
I made believe I was happy
But deep in my eyes she could see

That my face was bluer than blue
Our days of gold had flown, I knew
And when she smiled and winked at me
I knew our love was not to be
When she saw my face in the moon
When she saw my face in the moon

(instrumental)

Yes, she saw my face in the moon
That’s when she smiled and winked at me
Like a bright star when it’s happy
But deep in my eyes she could see

That my face was bluer than blue
Our days of gold had flown, I knew
And when she smiled and winked at me
I knew our love was not to be
When she saw my face in the moon
When she saw my face in the moon
      
Cinco Rios Cinco Valles (Larry W Jones 08/18/2013) (song#6717)

Cinco rios, cinco valles, mi amor
Five rivers, five valleys to view

Cinco rios, cinco valles, my darling
Five streams that now seperate our love that's due

One river, I’ll see your lovely face smiling
One valley, and my poor heart will feel less pain

One for your valor and one your beguiling
And one final valley to love you again

(instrumental)

Cinco rios, cinco valles, mi amor
Five rivers, five valleys to see

Cinco rios, cinco valles
Each will bring you closer to me

Cinco rios, cinco valles, mi amor
Five rivers, five valleys to view

Cinco rios, cinco valles
Each will bring me closer to you

Each will bring me closer to you
      
Wrap Your String And Spin My Top (Larry W Jones 08/19/2013) (song#6718)

Just like a spinning potter’s wheel
My head’s wound like a fishing reel
You make hearts wanna skip and hop
Just wrap your string and spin my top

When the moon is full, then you pull
I’m spinning like Taurus the Bull
If you see I’m about to stop
Just wrap your string and spin my top

Darlin’ you’ve got me in romance
Now I just wanna dance, dance, dance
Let’s go down to the sock hop bop
Just wrap your string and spin my top

(instrumental)

Darlin’ you’ve got me in romance
Now I just wanna dance, dance, dance
Let’s go down to the sock hop bop
Just wrap your string and spin my top

If I get tired and running down
Wrap your top string round and around
Spin me til I’m about to drop
Just wrap your string and spin my top

Outro:
Now darlin’, that ain’t no yo-yo string is it?
I don’t wanna be no yo-yo, oh no
I wanna be a spinnin’ top…need a top string… 
      
Rocky Mountain Moon (Larry W Jones 08/20/2013) (song#6719)

Moonlight was bright on the Rocky Mountains
The night we said that long ago goodbye
I’m still so far from the Rocky Mountains
Only the man in the moon sees me cry

Rocky Mountain moon, keep your light shining
Shining on that sweet mountain girl for me
Rocky Mountain moon, you know I’m pining
For that Rocky Mountain girl I can’t see

I’m hoping that tonight you’ll be glowing
Through her high Colorado window soon
Tell her of my love so she’ll be knowing
I’ll be with her soon, Rocky Mountain moon

(instrumental)

Rocky Mountain moon, keep your light shining
Shining on that sweet mountain girl for me
Rocky Mountain moon, you know I’m pining
For that Rocky Mountain girl I can’t see

I’m hoping that tonight you’ll be glowing
Through her high Colorado window soon
Tell her of my love so she’ll be knowing
I’ll be with her soon, Rocky Mountain moon

Tell her of my love so she’ll be knowing
I’ll be with her soon, Rocky Mountain moon
I’ll be with her soon, Rocky Mountain moon
      
Running Away Again (Larry W Jones 08/21/2013) (song#6720)

Riding on box cars while viewing the night stars
Sharing my bottle with another wino
Hearing the rails sing as the old box cars swing
Guess I’m about to be another hobo

Running away again from memories of you
Trying to look ahead to better times somewhere
Sometimes I wish I knew just where I’m headed to
Looking for where your memory will not be there

Ahead is new ground, a new or an old town
I don’t even care if it’s Kalamazoo
I’ll get off this night train, even in hard rain
That might wash away my memories of you

Running away again from memories of you
Trying to look ahead to better times somewhere
Sometimes I wish I knew just where I’m headed to
But I’m dreading that your memory will be there

(instrumental)

Here at the train stop, I feel the cold rain drops
And I know the reason I’m feeling so blue
I can’t stop drinking and I can’t stop thinking
Every season will bring memories of you

Running away again from memories of you
Trying to look ahead to better times somewhere
Sometimes I wish I knew just where I’m headed to
How can I run when your memory is still here

Sometimes I wish I knew just where I’m headed to
How can I run when your memory is still here
      
Goodbye Love (Larry W Jones 08/21/2013) (song#6721)

Now, look who’s walking out the door
Like you’ve walked out on me before
Goodbye love, goodbye love
Out in the world’s where you belong
Though I will miss you when you’re gone
Goodbye love, goodbye love

Well, make yourself another home
I know your plans will all go wrong
So long love, so long love

(instrumental)

You promised love time and again
Now you’ve gone back where you began
I wondered if your love was true
You plundered the words I love you

I tried to please in every way
And on my knees I begged you stay
Goodbye love, goodbye love
I’ll be so blue now that you’re gone
It’s you who made our love go wrong
Goodbye love, goodbye love

(instrumental)

You promised love time and again
Now you’ve gone back where you began
I wondered if your love was true
You plundered the words I love you

Somehow I’m peaceful as can be
I’m still blue but I’m still old me
Goodbye love, goodbye love
You’re gone and now my song’s complete
So I’m now drawn to just repeat
Goodbye love, goodbye love
Goodbye love, goodbye love
      
Tramp Along The Track (Larry W Jones 08/22/2013) (song#6722)

A midnight train came rollin’, she boarded on the fly
I needed her consolin’ but all she said was bye
She peered out from the window as smoke was blowing black
Then she left me cryin’ like a tramp along the track

Adios, goodbye, she called out through the engine’s steam
Adios, goodbye, goin’ to places I ain’t seen
She said I was a drifter that she ain’t takin’ back
Then she left me cryin’ like a tramp along the track

(instrumental)

I know she’ll keep goin’ somewhere out there in the blue
Probably to places where some tramp has been there too
I tried to settle down and said I would no more roam
Now the table’s upside down cause she has moved along

Adios, goodbye, the outbound track was callin’ her
Adios, goodbye, she’s on the main line, not a spur
I lost what was mine and my future is lookin’ black 
When she left me cryin’ like a tramp along the track

I lost what was mine and my future is lookin’ black 
When she left me cryin’ like a tramp along the track
      
Footsteps On My Teardrops (Larry W Jones 08/22/2013) (song#6723)

First down the aisle was the man who was best
Next the bridegroom with his smile for the guests
Then came footsteps on my teardrops I shed
Yes, footsteps on my teardrops as you wed

Next down the aisle came the bridesmaid so blessed
And you in great style in your wedding dress
Then came footsteps on my teardrops I shed
Yes, footsteps on my teardrops as you wed

(instrumental)

First in line at the party, bride and groom
Each one drank hearty for your honeymoon
Then came footsteps on my teardrops I shed
Yes, footsteps on my teardrops as you wed

Now that you’re wed, I’m so alone and blue
I dread to think what I might up and do 
Cause there’s footsteps on my teardrops I shed
Yes, footsteps on my teardrops as you wed
      
Yosemite Wind (Larry W Jones 08/24/2013) (song#6724)

In the Sierra Nevadas there’s ponderosa pines
And scenic places where only a mountain boy can climb
Now that I’ve grown older, I recline and then I pretend
I’m back in California in the Yosemite wind

When I was a young lad, everything I needed I had
And now I find that pleasures and wealth can make a man sad
Now, there’s one place I want to return before my life ends
Right back to California in the Yosemite wind

(instrumental)

When I was a young lad, everything I needed I had
And now I find that pleasures and wealth can make a man sad
Now, there’s one place I want to return before my life ends
Right back to California in the Yosemite wind

Oh, I’ve lived a full life, but one full of troubles and strife
Good times have been so few and all my regrets are now rife
Now, there’s one place calling me back just like a long lost friend
Right back to California in the Yosemite wind 

Back to California in the Yosemite wind 
In the Yosemite wind
      
Lick Skillet Road (Larry W Jones 08/25/2013) (song#6725)

There’s a road in Boulder County Colorado
That some old mountain miner named Lick Skillet Road
Known as the steepest county road in the country
Gold by the load was hauled along Lick Skillet Road

More than good gold was cookin’ in Boulder County
Old miners were lookin’ for somethin’ called white gold
White lightnin’ was the brew, called Boulder County dew
Moonshiners were a-cookin’ on Lick Skillet Road

(instrumental)

In Winter when it snows don’t you think of drivin’
From the bottom up to the top now, I am told
It’s one way down and even then you might be dyin’
But not from miners moonshine on Lick Skillet Road

More than good gold was cookin’ in Boulder County
Old miners were lookin’ for somethin’ called white gold
White lightnin’ was the brew, called Boulder County dew
Moonshiners were a-cookin’ on Lick Skillet Road

White lightnin’ was the brew, called Boulder County dew
Moonshiners were a-cookin’ on Lick Skillet Road
      
Chattahoochee Poochie (Larry W Jones 08/25/2013) (song#6726)

There’s a flow down in south Georgia
Called the old Chattahoochee stream
There’s a bloodhound in south Georgia
Huntin’ for his old southern dream  

I’m that Chattahoochee poochie
Huntin’ for you though you don’t care
Just a Chattahoochee poochie
A-chasin’ my tail everywhere

You’re just like the Chattahoochee
You keep goin’ and never stop
I’m a Chattahoochee poochie
I’ll keep a-huntin’ til I drop

(instrumental)

I’m that Chattahoochee poochie
Huntin’ for you though you don’t care
Just a Chattahoochee poochie
A-chasin’ my tail everywhere

You’re just like the Chattahoochee
You keep goin’ and never stop
I’m a Chattahoochee poochie
I’ll keep a-huntin’ til I drop

I’m a Chattahoochee poochie
A-chasin’ my tail everywhere 
      
New Old Heartache (Larry W Jones 08/26/2013) (song#6727)

An old friend you once knew has come to town
I’ve seen him seeing you just like before
My world’s gone right down since he’s come around
I hear a new old heartache at my door

I thought your ways had changed the day he left
He’s back and I see his tracks more and more
My heart’s bereft because of your love’s theft
I hear a new old heartache at my door

Why do you do the same as you once did
You’re both to blame for things true love forbids

(instrumental)

Last night we had plans for a real fine date
I waited til the rain began to pour
I no longer rate, that I can’t debate
I hear a new old heartache at my door

I thought your ways had changed the day he left
He’s back and I see his tracks more and more
My heart’s bereft because of your love’s theft
I hear a new old heartache at my door

I know what’s in store
I hear a new old heartache at my door
      
Born For Despair (Larry W Jones 08/27/2013) (song#6728)

Born for despair, each day I lose again
Cause everywhere I know the blues will win
I’m in dismay each day for losing you
Born for despair, the blues come tearing through

Born for despair, my load is heavy now
Every road I know is rocky somehow
I’m so weary of hearing songs so blue
Born for despair, but I still long for you

Born for despair, my future’s colored grey
I’ve got no mother to show me the way
You are the only love I ever knew
Born for despair, but I still long for you

(instrumental)

Born for despair, my load is heavy now
Every road I know is rocky somehow
I’m so weary of hearing songs so blue
Born for despair, but I still long for you

Born for despair, my future’s colored grey
I’ve got no mother to show me the way
You are the only love I ever knew
Born for despair, but I still long for you
      
Long Distance Letters (Larry W Jones 08/28/2013) (song#6729)

Dear, I’ve read all your long distance letters
I stacked them by your picture in a frame
You here in person would be much better
Where I would ask if I could change your name

Mother said you had no one above me
Father said to be patient and just wait
My sister wonders if you still love me
Dear, please hurry home before it’s too late

I’m tired of reading long distance letters
Though your I Love You is written in bold
Loose my heart from lonely, ice cold fetters
Come back my dear, so our love won’t grow cold

(instrumental)

Mother said you had no one above me
Father said to be patient and just wait
My sister wonders if you still love me
Dear, please hurry home before it’s too late

I’m tired of reading long distance letters
Though your I Love You is written in bold
Loose my heart from lonely, ice cold fetters
Come back my dear, so our love won’t grow cold
      
Sailing For The Whaling (Larry W Jones 08/28/2013) (song#6730)

Oh, fare thee well my own sweet love
Where I must sail is far away
I am bound for the whaling grounds
But I’ll return some bonny day

Oh, fare thee well my own sweet love
One fine day I’ll return to you
Grief is not the sailing for the whaling
Darling, it is my leaving you

I have boarded the Flying Cloud
Burgess is her captain, by name
He bellows commands to us loud
Belay the staysail, hoist the main

Oh, fare thee well my own sweet love
One fine day I’ll return to you
Grief is not the sailing for the whaling
Darling, it is my leaving you

(instrumental)

Sunset falls on the home of mine
Ashore my heart with you remains
I’ll sail the foam a long, long time
Before my eyes see you again

Oh, fare thee well my own sweet love
One fine day I’ll return to you
Grief is not the sailing for the whaling
Darling, it is my leaving you
      
Ocean Of Champagne (Larry W Jones 08/28/2013) (song#6731)

Some fine folks drink champagne under the moon
Red necks drink beer to a Hank Williams tune
All that I need love, for feeling OK
Is for your love dear, come whatever may

I’d give an ocean of champagne
Or a bar full of beer
To hear a Hank Williams refrain
That you love me, my dear

That would change all my lost love songs
That make me feel so blue
To songs that would right all the wrongs
Like champagne and love true

(instrumental)

I’d give an ocean of champagne
Or a bar full of beer
To hear a Hank Williams refrain
That you love me, my dear

That would change all my lost love songs
That make me feel so blue
To songs that would right all the wrongs
Like champagne and love true

I’d give an ocean of champagne
Or a bar full of beer
To hear a Hank Williams refrain
That you love me, my dear 
      
Say It With A Song (Larry W Jones 08/29/2013) (song#6732)

A song is made of words all lovers know
And romance just goes along with the flow
Any young couple will tell you it’s so
So if you want to see your young love grow

Say it with a song, say it with a song
For she would rather be kissed and be held
To the tune of that old black magic spell
Take her for a spin with a violin
And it won’t be wrong if you sing along
Say it with a song, say it with a song

(instrumental)

There’s a petition down deep in my heart
But for rendition, now how should I start
Maybe tradition will reach to her heart
I’ll just beseech her with this work of art

Say it with a song, say it with a song
For she would rather be kissed and be held
To the tune of that old black magic spell
Take her for a spin with a violin
And it won’t be wrong if you sing along
Say it with a song, say it with a song 
      
Under Campeche Stars (Larry W Jones 08/31/2013) (song#6733)

That night we met on the shore in old Mexico
Timing was set under Campeche stars
Love at first sight came ashore in old Mexico
That night we met under Campeche stars

Ocean waves broke in their splendor
Lanterns in the town square burned low
Two hearts awoke and surrendered
Turned by love that I knew would grow
Mariachi bands were playing
We danced until the early dawn
Romance I thought would be staying
One glance away and she was gone

(instrumental)

Tonight I know on the shore of old Mexico
Lanterns glow by Mariachis guitars
Back to the shore of old Mexico I must go
To her once more under Campeche stars

(instrumental)

Tonight I know on the shore of old Mexico
Lanterns glow by Mariachis guitars
Back to the shore of old Mexico I must go
To her once more under Campeche stars
      
With Yellow Roses I Say Goodbye (Larry W Jones 08/31/2013) (song#6734)

Today you’ll receive ten yellow roses
I know you won’t be grieved or even blue
You know the meaning of yellow roses
They’re for someone you love who’s been untrue

Place them where warm sunlight will never fall
It won’t take them long to wither and die
I would rather my tears not fall at all
But with yellow roses I say goodbye

(instrumental)

Red roses have always meant I love you
And pink is for grace and elegance shown
White is for innocence and honor too
But yellow is for love that chose to roam

Place them where warm sunlight will never fall
It won’t take them long to wither and die
I would rather my tears not fall at all
But with yellow roses I say goodbye

With those yellow roses I say goodbye
      
Discarded Love (Larry W Jones 09/01/2013) (song#6735)

Searching for another discarded love
For someone like me who has loved and lost
Searching for another discarded love
For someone who knows what wrong love has cost

I don’t want a heart that has never known
That there is no cheer in being alone
I don’t want a love that will disappear
I want a lost love that can be sincere

So, In regard to a discarded love
Someone now charred by misery and pain
Bring your heart that’s torn by discarded love
But willing to gamble on love again

(instrumental)

I know there are other hearts just like mine
There is no chain but it’s still not sublime
Bring your heart so that both of us may claim
We’re willing to gamble on love again

So, In regard to a discarded love
Someone now charred by misery and pain
Bring your heart that’s torn by discarded love
But willing to gamble on love again
      
Ballad For Texas (Larry W Jones 09/01/2013) (song#6736)

Belt me out a ballad for Texas
A valid song for the Lone Star State
Where a cowboy can ride and brand a longhorn’s hide
Belt me out a ballad for Texas

All the longhorns in Texas are steers
And the corn grows taller by the ears
All the cowgirls look fine and especially mine
She’s about my ballad for Texas

Belt me out a ballad for Texas
The state where my Mama gave me birth
On the wide Texas range some things I’d never change
Like the big stockyards in old Fort Worth

There’s big ten gallon hats in Texas
For cowboy heads full of Texas brags
Where big ‘ol buckles won’t draw no Yankee chuckles
I wear big ‘ol buckles in Texas

Belt me out a ballad for Texas
Where cowboys legs are naturally bowed
From horses they’ve rode while living the cowboy code
Down those old cattle trails in Texas

So pardner, if you go to Texas
Give a Howdy to my folks down there
Tell ‘em I’m roamin’ but soon I’m comin’ homin’
To belt out a ballad for Texas
      
Andy The Brandy Man (Larry W Jones 09/02/2013) (song#6737)

I’m hoping the apricots in California
Grow just as sweet as they possibly can
Cause I’m hitting the downtown spots in Chicago
With the broken heart of a shattered man

I feed the jukebox in the dim bar room corner
My last quarters for the songs that I scan
The sad bartender asks me why I’m a mourner
I just say I’m Andy the brandy man

(instrumental)

I came to cold Chicago from downtown Nashville
My darlin’s on a California train
Maybe if my glass you would with good brandy fill
My broken heart won’t feel the awful pain

I feed the jukebox in the dim bar room corner
My last quarters for the songs that I scan
The sad bartender asks me why I’m a mourner
I just say I’m Andy the brandy man

I just say I’m Andy the brandy man
      
Back On The Road Once More (Larry W Jones 09/02/2013) (song#6738)

I’m back on the road once more
Back where I’ve been once before
Won’dring what may be in store
Remem’bring love in days of yore

There’s tears in my eyes once more
Like a reprise once before
Sad and not knowing what for
Remem’bring love in days of yore

I’m back on the road once more
Back where I’ve been once before

(instrumental)

I remember the time when I thought love would be mine
But now the sweet wine has been turned into bitter brine
I’m back on the road once more and just wasting my time

There’s tears in my eyes once more
Like a reprise once before
I’m back on the road once more
Back where I’ve been once before
      
Bobwhites And Cowboy Bobs (Larry W Jones  09/04/2013) (song#6739)

I looked at Mom and Daddy from my saddle on that day
My first cattle drive would change me from a boy to a man
I don’t think I had ever seen my parents cry that way
Mama tried to be strong while holding onto Daddy’s hand

Daddy untied my saddle bags and dropped some money in
He said to my Mom that I would make a good cattle man
Mama smiled at him when she knew it was time to begin
Dad said it’s time to go but cowboy Bob come back again

Cause bobwhites and cowboy Bobs fly away like winds that blow
But there comes a bright rainbow after winds and rain you know
Bobwhites and cowboy Bobs fly away to where cattle go
Cowboy Bobs ride for the jobs that make a young cowboy grow

(instrumental)

A thousand thoughts of wonder came as I waved them goodbye
How they taught me to read and write and how to make love grow
As I spurred my steed I heard my Daddy say with a sigh
Yeah, bobwhites and cowboy Bobs fly away like winds that blow

Cause bobwhites and cowboy Bobs fly away like winds that blow
But there comes a bright rainbow after winds and rain you know
Bobwhites and cowboy Bobs fly away to where cattle go
Cowboy Bobs ride for the jobs that make a young cowboy grow

Bobwhites and cowboy Bobs fly away
      
New Weather Girl (Larry W Jones 09/05/2013) (song#6740)

She was just like the weather girl
When she left she took away the sunshine
During the Winter of our love
But when you came in sight, there was no grey
Now there are no clouds up above
And there’s a good chance of sunshine today

Now you are my new weather girl
When you came you brought back warmth and sunshine
It’s a new Summer of our love
The forecast looks like May, there is no grey
Look at the blue skies up above
Yes, there’s a good chance of sunshine today

(instrumental)

Living in a Summer of love
I’m glad you’re my new weather girl
Good weather is your forecast of
Summer love all over the world

Now you are my new weather girl
When you came you brought back warmth and sunshine
It’s a new Summer of our love
The forecast looks like May, there is no grey
Look at the blue skies up above
Yes, there’s a good chance of sunshine today
      
Rocky Mountain Rocks (Larry W Jones 09/08/2013) (song#6741)

Now, if you get Rocky Mountain rocks in your boots
Listen to the talk of walking I’m telling you
You will want to abide where you can lay down roots
If you get those Rocky Mountain rocks in your boots

Now, if you’re searching for a higher place above
Rocky Mountain rocks you’ll embrace
You will love the slower pace and wide open space
Rocky Mountain rocks is the place

(instrumental)

Now, if you’re searching for a higher place above
Rocky Mountain rocks you’ll embrace
You will love the slower pace and wide open space
Rocky Mountain rocks is the place

The Front Range and Western Slope have hidden treasures
It’s a Rocky Mountain paradise
You’ll set down your roots with your boots in due measure
With Rocky Mountain rocks in your boots
      
Quicker Picker (Larry W Jones 09/09/2013) (song#6742)

At a big dance hall named Gilley’s
Folks were havin’ a ball when she strolled by
Cowboys were actin’ real silly
Some even had their big mouths opened wide

Well, I shoulda been a quicker picker
But I was too slow on the draw
I mean it only took a lean minute
The last of her was all I saw
I didn’t get a chance for her romance
Although I’m a country kicker
Well, so long, she was gone in a flicker
Yeah, I shoulda been a quicker picker

(instrumental)

A faster cowboy by the big jukebox
Had her dancing out on the floor
Yeah, he was quicker than an old red fox
And I was too slow on the draw

Well, I shoulda been a quicker picker
But I was too slow on the draw
I mean it only took a lean minute
The last of her was all I saw
I didn’t get a chance for her romance
Although I’m a country kicker
Well, so long, she was gone in a flicker
Yeah, I shoulda been a quicker picker

Now, next time I go to Gilley’s
And there’s a filly at the door
Gonna be a quicker picker
This Billy Bob’s silly no more
      
Boulder County Rose (Larry W Jones 09/09/2013) (song#6743)

Today I’m thinking of Boulder County
Where the mountains put on wild flower shows
Where warm sun shines bright on nature’s bounty
And on my own sweet Boulder County rose

I can hear the old Boulder folks singing
While on their guitars and fiddles they play
I can hear the strings of banjos ringing
Down through Boulder Canyon at end of day

(instrumental)

The hum of bees on flowers will guide me
On Rocky Mountain trails sweet with perfume
With my Boulder County rose beside me
Hand in hand neath a Boulder County moon

Today I’m thinking of Boulder County
Where the mountains put on wild flower shows
Where warm sun shines bright on nature’s bounty
And on my own sweet Boulder County rose 
      
Regardless (Larry W Jones 09/09/2013) (song#6744)

I might be right but just in case I’m wrong
I might be weak instead of being strong
Regardless, I’m guarding my love for you

I might be a winner or a loser
Or just a beginner for the blues sir
Regardless, I’m guarding my love for you

(instrumental)

Somehow I have always lost at romance
And I know it’s a chance that I’m taking
Regardless of the start, I take to heart
My love for you will never be shaking

Oh, I might live my life to regret it
I might give it more than I will get it
Regardless, I’m guarding my love for you

(instrumental)

Somehow I have always lost at romance
And I know it’s a chance that I’m taking
Regardless of the start, I take to heart
My love for you will never be shaking

Oh, I might live my life to regret it
I might give it more than I will get it
Regardless, I’m guarding my love for you

Regardless, I’m guarding my love for you
      
Back Where The Buffalo Used To Roam (Larry W Jones 09/10/2013) (song#6745)

Each night in my dreams are western scenes
Reminding me of my old ranch home
I’m bound where for years I haven’t seen
Back where the buffalo used to roam

These bright downtown lights and city sights
Remind me of Houston’s Astrodome
I need some time alone, that’s my rights 
Back where the buffalo used to roam

Drink coffee from a cup I’ve filled up
Lean back on the porch and watch the moon
Listen to a whippoorwill from the hill
Strum my guitar to a cowboy tune

On my horse I’ll ride along the trail
Mend fences, work fingers to the bone
Yes, I’m gonna return without fail
Back where the buffalo used to roam

Storms will form and I’ll hear thunder roll
Good rain will transform the land for days
I’ll inform city friends of my goal
To spend life in my old cowboy ways

I’m gonna watch bright stars up above
After watching the big sun go down
I’m gonna sing songs of cowboy love
A hundred miles from any known town

I’m packing soon for returning back
To where prairie skies are brilliant blue
The ranch house might be a leaning shack
But I’ll be back where dreams will come true

These big freeways make such lonely trails
They ain’t for me or where I belong
Tradin’ shoes for boots and horse shoe nails
Back where the buffalo used to roam
      
Ride On (Larry W Jones 09/11/2013) (song#6746)

Now, cowboy life is fabulous
When the roundups are going right
But even life that’s fabulous
Can turn around from day to night
So, when you fall from the saddle
Don’t be addled, just get up and

Ride on, ride on
Trails of troubles ain’t all that long
Ride on, ride on
Don’t stay there sittin’ in the dust
It ain’t fittin’ and it ain’t just
You’ll feel better if you don’t moan
Ride on

(instrumental)

If your cowgirl says it’s the end
And your broken heart’s full of woes
Don’t act like cattle that are penned
Just ride on through her adios

Ride on, ride on
Trails of troubles ain’t all that long
Ride on, ride on
Don’t stay there sittin’ in the dust
It ain’t fittin’ and it ain’t just
You’ll feel better if you don’t moan
Ride on

Don’t stay there sittin’ in the dust
It ain’t fittin’ and it ain’t just
You’ll feel better if you don’t moan
Ride on, ride on
      
Ride Through This Land With Me (Larry W Jones 09/11/2013) (song#6747)

Ride through this land with me
Please let me be your guide
Come take your stand with me
Hand in hand by my side
For love we look but rarely find
But I’m fairly sure in my mind

That I have found true love
For in your eyes I see
What I’ve been dreaming of
To last eternally
Please let my dreams now be
Ride through this land with me

(instrumental)

For love we look but rarely find
But I’m fairly sure in my mind

That I have found true love
For in your eyes I see
What I’ve been dreaming of
To last eternally
Please let my dreams now be
Ride through this land with me

Please let my dreams now be
Ride through this land with me
      
Really Swell Moonlight (Larry W Jones 09/11/2013) (song#6748)

I see soft moonbeams on the prairie
The breeze, it seems, is fresh and airy
The hoot owl is winking with one eye
And who’s thinking he’s in love, but I

Well, well, that’s some really swell moonlight
Well, well, this is a really swell night
My heart, it has been set a-reelin’
All that I see in sight is alright

(instrumental)

The longhorns are sleeping or lowing
Fish jump in the stream nearby flowing
I sing my night herd songs on the fly
And who’s thinking he’s in love, but I

Well, well, that’s some really swell moonlight
Well, well, this is a really swell night
My heart, it has been set a-reelin’
All that I see in sight is alright

(instrumental)

All is well, the prairie is calm now
I can tell, her love’s in my palm now
The answer she gave is now spoken
Of love that will never be broken

Well, well, that’s some really swell moonlight
Well, well, this is a really swell night
My heart, it has been set a-reelin’
All that I see in sight is alright

I sing my night herd songs on the fly
And who’s thinking he’s in love, but I
      
Last Train From Maine (Larry W Jones 09/12/2013) (song#6749)

I’m riding the last train from Maine
On rails that must be worn and old
This boxcar’s rolling through the rain
Ain’t no consoling from the cold
Us hobos are never welcome
We’re forever in ragged clothes
I’m riding the last train from Maine
Rolling south where the warm wind blows

I know every hobo jungle
All down from Maine to New Orleans
My bedroll is in a jumble
My socks have stains that can’t be seen
There’s a big black locomotive
On the boiler is number one
I’m riding the last train from Maine
Rolling south toward a warmer sun

(instrumental)

I’m riding the last train from Maine
On rails that must be worn and old
This boxcar’s rolling through the rain
Ain’t no consoling from the cold
Us hobos are never welcome
We’re forever in ragged clothes
I’m riding the last train from Maine
Rolling south where the warm wind blows

Other hobos will be waiting
When this long freight train comes around
I can tell by the wheels grating
Throttle’s back and we’re slowing down
This ride has covered much terrain
From up north where I nearly froze
I’m riding the last train from Maine
Rolling south wearing summer clothes

(instrumental)

I’m riding the last train from Maine
On rails that must be worn and old
This boxcar’s rolling through the rain
Ain’t no consoling from the cold
Us hobos are never welcome
We’re forever in ragged clothes
I’m riding the last train from Maine
Rolling south where the warm wind blows

I’m riding the last train from Maine
Rolling south where the warm wind blows
      
Leaning On New Orleans (Larry W Jones 09/12/2013) (song#6750)

Daddy and Mama raised us kids in Louisian
In old New Orleans where the Mississippi flows
And all the dreams of this old Louisiana man
Are in New Orleans where crawdads and Creoles grow

My folks were sharecroppers in a big cotton field
It was home to my brother and sister and me
I remember the sight of big ‘ol paddle wheels
Rollin’ down the Mississippi so fancy free

Well, I’m leaning on New Orleans for all my dreams
Nothing’s gonna be intervening with my plan
Yeah, I’m leaning on New Orleans for all my dreams
To all come true for this old Louisiana man

(instrumental)

My folks passed on and my brother and sister’s gone
I’m at the age where my age is startin’ to show
Goin’ back to New Orleans and eat Creole prawn
On the banks of the Mississippi at Boudreaux’s

Well, I’m leaning on New Orleans for all my dreams
Nothing’s gonna be intervening with my plan
Yeah, I’m leaning on New Orleans for all my dreams
To all come true for this old Louisiana man

Yeah, for all my dreams, I’m leaning on New Orleans
      
Cowboy Brown (Larry w Jones 09/18/2013) (song#6751)

Every morning I clean the stalls
They call me Cowboy Brown
I’m still young and not very tall
The cowboy of the town

I roll out early from my bed
The cows I have to meet
Old cowboy hat upon my head
Worn boots upon my feet

But don’t you mind now how I look
Don't look at me and frown
I help the wranglers and the cook
They call me Cowboy Brown

Sometimes I get cold and hungry
My jeans are worn and thin
I work but I’m never angry
My strength comes from within

My Daddy died a drunkard M’am
My Mama used to say
Now for helping my Mom I am
In my own cowboy way

My Mama always told me, son
Here’s something you can use
An eternal life you have won
If you live the Gospel news

(instrumental)

Every morning I clean the stalls
They call me Cowboy Brown
I’m still young and not very tall
The cowboy of the town

I roll out early from my bed
The cows I have to meet
Old cowboy hat upon my head
Worn boots upon my feet
 
But don’t you mind now how I look
Don't look at me and frown
I help the wranglers and the cook
They call me Cowboy Brown
      
Come April (Larry W Jones 09/20/2013) (song#6752)

Come April, she’ll arrive
When new flowers and blossoms come alive

Then come May, as a lei
She’ll be wrapped in my loving arms each day

Oh by June, all too soon
She’ll walk around, and sometimes out of sight

Come July, say goodbye
Who knows where she will go when come twilight

Come August, summer’s gone
The end of endless dreams that can’t go on

September, remember
New April love now seems to have grown old

(instrumental)

Come April, she’ll arrive
When new flowers and blossoms come alive

September, remember
New April love now seems to have grown old
      
Locomotive Painted Black (Larry W Jones 9/22/2013) (song#6753)

Locomotive painted black, rolling down the railroad track
Did you see just where she stepped off
Would you keep silent if she scoffed
Her new carpet bag she carried
She and I were getting married
Her vows to me of love I hope she hasn’t taken back

Locomotive painted black, rolling down the railroad track
She boarded back in Tennessee
Your train is empty as can be
Now, it wasn’t that long a ride
She should be here right by my side
I must confide to you that my pride is starting to crack

(instrumental)

Oh, I clued her in about how intruders win at hearts
She may have found a new romance
Sometimes that happens with a glance
And just like locomotive fire
That look can strike a new desire
Wish she were here at the station instead of unknown parts

Locomotive painted black, rolling down the railroad track
She boarded back in Tennessee
Your train is empty as can be
Now, it wasn’t that long a ride
She should be here right by my side
I must confide to you that my pride is starting to crack

She boarded back in Tennessee
Your train is empty as can be
      
Fernando’s Guitar (Larry W Jones 09/23/2013) (song#6754)

Love songs he’s playing in the zo’calo
But manana you’ll be straying afar
Darling, hold me and say you love me so
As we now dance to Fernando’s guitar

Aye yi yi yi, Aye yi yi yi
Oh manana, I will look for your star
Tomorrow I’ll sleep with tears in my eyes
And with sorrow hear Fernando’s guitar

(instrumental)

Fernando plays on in the zo’calo
Beneath all those shining Mexican stars
Manana I will be pining I know
Alone with only Fernando’s guitar

Aye yi yi yi, Aye yi yi yi
Oh manana, I will look for your star
Tomorrow I’ll sleep with tears in my eyes
And with sorrow hear Fernando’s guitar

Aye yi yi yi, Aye yi yi yi
      
Silver Clouds Of Love (Larry W Jones 09/23/2013) (song#6755)

Dark storm clouds covered life when losing you
Strife overshadowed words that begged you stay
But now skies are blue with a love that’s true
And silver clouds of love are on their way

I thought you were the correct girl for me
But I now stand corrected all the way
The wrong weather girl you turned out to be
But now my world looks brighter every day

Dark storm clouds covered life when losing you
Strife overshadowed words that begged you stay
But now skies are blue with a love that’s true
And silver clouds of love are on their way

(instrumental)

On one big whim you left and went to him
Like tree limbs blowing in a gusty wind
I just dusted off my dreams that were dim
When I saw silver clouds of love move in

Dark storm clouds covered life when losing you
Strife overshadowed words that begged you stay
But now skies are blue with a love that’s true
And silver clouds of love are on their way

Yes, silver clouds of love now come my way
      
Pecos Land (Larry W Jones 09/24/2013) (song#6756)

Well, my horse needed water in the Pecos land
It was hotter, of course, than anywhere I’d been
The Pecos bed was dry and filled with Texas sand
I rode on across with hot sun burning my skin 

Texas sun and sand in the Pecos land
Man oughta be banned from the Pecos land

Well, my old horse up and died in the Pecos land
My eyes were so dry I couldn’t cry if I tried
I walked on across to the Texas Rio Grande
But in the Pecos land I would never abide

(instrumental)

Texas sun and sand in the Pecos land
Man oughta be banned from the Pecos land

Well, my horse needed water in the Pecos land
It was hotter, of course, than anywhere I’d been
The Pecos bed was dry and filled with Texas sand
I rode on across with hot sun burning my skin 

Texas sun and sand in the Pecos land
Man oughta be banned from the Pecos land
Man oughta be banned from the Pecos land
Man oughta be banned from the Pecos land
      
My Only Care Is To Forget (Larry W Jones 09/26/2013) (song#6757)

You didn’t care when you left me there
You don’t care that you have no regret
Where you have gone I don’t wonder where
Now my only care is to forget

You didn’t care to give love I need
You don’t care about me even yet
What you have done is make my heart bleed
Now my only care is to forget
 
(instrumental)

You didn’t care to give love I need
You don’t care about me even yet
What you have done is make my heart bleed
Now my only care is to forget

You don’t care about me even yet
Now my only care is to forget
Now my only care is to forget
      
Mobile Bay Hurricane (Larry W Jones 09/27/2013) (song#6758)

Down in Alabama, gulf at high tide
Old shrimp boats sail the ocean decked with pride
Seen in panorama, rain once again
As big waves on the gulf come rolling in 

Dimples in the ocean
Emotions roll in simple things
Dimples in the ocean
My soul is tingled when it rains

Gulf Shores to Pensacola, Mobile Bay
Hurricane blowing Alabama way
Storm and wind and rain coming once again
As big waves on the gulf come rolling in

(instrumental) 

Dimples in the ocean
Emotions roll in simple things
Dimples in the ocean
My soul is tingled when it rains

Well, tonight when it’s midnight in Mobile
Hurricane party, let’s fire up the grill
Let the rain come down all over this town
Hope we all don’t drown in the hurricane

Dimples in the ocean
Emotions roll in simple things
Dimples in the ocean
My soul is tingled when it rains

When it rains a Mobile Bay hurricane
      
As Autumn Falls (Larry W Jones 09/28/2013) (song#6759)

Summer has come and gone for all
Seems the sunshine can never last
I hear the call as Autumn falls
For Winter is coming on fast

Years have passed since I learned to crawl
I remember one most of all
I hear the call as Autumn falls
I hear the call as Autumn falls

There goes her farewell train again
Rolling on down that cold steel rail
Here comes my heartfelt pain again
Although I feel no one can tell

(instrumental)

There goes her farewell train again
Rolling on down that cold steel rail
Here comes my heartfelt pain again
Although I feel no one can tell

My memory can’t find its rest
Spring has gone and Summer is lost
The rest of the year is a test
I must go on what e’er the cost

Years have passed since I learned to crawl
I remember one most of all
I hear the call as Autumn falls
I hear the call as Autumn falls
      
I Picked A Rose In December (Larry W Jones 09/29/2013) (song#6760)

I picked a rose in December
I ate apple pie in the sky
I found a tree I remember
And picked the apple of my eye

I picked a rose in December
And built a snowman in July
Our love glows warm as an ember
Dear, you’re my rose, I wouldn’t lie

My sad heart was always dreaming
I remember being so blue
I picked a rose in December
That’s how it goes when loving you

(instrumental)

I picked a rose in December
And built a snowman in July
Our love glows warm as an ember
Dear, you’re my rose, I wouldn’t lie

My sad heart was always dreaming
I remember being so blue
I picked a rose in December
That’s how it goes when loving you

I picked a rose in December
That’s how it goes when loving you
      
My Heart Will Love Her Evermore (Larry W Jones 10/04/2013) (song#6761)

My heart doesn’t pay attention
It lost its head just as before
Though tomorrow will bring sorrow
My heart will love her evermore

I bent my heart’s ear for awhile
But it didn’t listen, I’m sure
It tried to change tears for a smile
My heart will love her evermore

My heart doesn’t pay attention
My heart doesn’t even listen
Why do I even make mention
Of a heart that loves evermore

(instrumental)

My poor heart’s forever broken
It will never heal or feel fine
It won’t listen to words spoken
I think my heart has lost its mind

I bent my heart’s ear for awhile
But it didn’t listen, I’m sure
It tried to change tears for a smile
My heart will love her evermore

My heart doesn’t pay attention
My heart doesn’t even listen
Why do I even make mention
Of a heart that loves evermore
      
Texas Boogie (Larry W Jones 10/04/2013) (song#6762)

Boys and girls, lend me your ear for awhile
About a new dance that’ll drive you wild
Cattle in Texas learned to do it too
The Texas Boogie beats the old soft shoe

Now, you can dance it fast or dance it slow
So, take a chance on this new do-si-do
Texas Boogie’s done Amarillo style
Just let your boots run Texas Boogie wild

Uncle Tom’s cabin fever drove him wild
Now he's a believer, Amarillo style
Old Tom burned down his cabin, a beauty
Dancin’ around to the Texas Boogie

Now, you can dance it fast or dance it slow
So, take a chance on this new do-si-do
Texas Boogie’s done Amarillo style
Just let your boots run Texas Boogie wild

Well boys, two old maids were lying in bed
One looked over at the other and said
Let’s raise the shades and drive the neighbors wild
With Texas Boogie Amarillo style

Now, you can dance it fast or dance it slow
So, take a chance on this new do-si-do
Texas Boogie’s done Amarillo style
Just let your boots run Texas Boogie wild

Dancin’ around to the Texas Boogie
Dancin’ around to the Texas Boogie
      
I Heard Train Engines Running (Larry W Jones 10/04/2013) (song#6763)

I heard train engines running on the rails by our home
They sounded just like thunder in the rain
When I listened to that sound my mind began to roam
I heard it and I’ve never been to same

Don’t you cry now darlin’ and don’t you be feelin’ blue
I talked with you this mornin’ in my dreams
Don’t you cry now darlin’ cause don’t you know I love you
I heard train engines running, blowing steam

Railroads are just steel tracks running every which of way
I’ve been there and back and stayed for awhile
I have gone the distance and my hair is turning gray
But I have loved you dearly every mile

(instrumental)

Sometimes my head gets achin’ in abandoned train yards
Then I hop a freight and be on my way
I’ll check general delivery post for any cards
And darlin’, I’ll answer back somewhere along the way 

Don’t you cry now darlin’ and don’t you be feelin’ blue
I talked with you this mornin’ in my dreams
Don’t you cry now darlin’ cause don’t you know I love you
I heard train engines running, blowing steam

I heard train engines running on the rails by our home
When I listened to that sound my mind began to roam
      
Mister Big Time Can You Spare A Dime (Larry W Jones 10/05/2013) (song#6764)

He stands outside the station in the rain
As one train after train rolls in on time
He begs with a voice that tolls all in vain
Hey Mister Big Time, can you spare a dime

Folks come and folks go who give him a glance
They just see someone who is not their kind
He wants to give up but takes one more chance
Hey Mister Big Time, can you spare a dime

He walks on from the station feeling low
Today was just another hill to climb
But he’ll be back when new train whistles blow
To beg Mister Big Time for one more dime

(instrumental)

Folks come and folks go who don’t hurt within
It won’t bother them while they’re in their prime
When he’s at the station begging again
Hey Mister Big Time, can you spare a dime

He stands outside the station in the rain
As one train after train rolls in on time
He begs with a voice that tolls all in vain
Hey Mister Big Time, can you spare a dime

Hey Mister Big Time, can you spare a dime
Hey Mister Big Time, can you spare a dime
Hey Mister Big Time, can you spare a dime
      
About Face (Larry W Jones 10/09/2013) (song#6765)

About face, about face, my love is out of sight
Please return, my darling, and end this darkest night
About face, about face, come back across the line
To the time when you said that you’d be only mine

I recall your promise and your tender embrace
About face, about face, for time cannot erase
Love now in my heart that’s the same as yesterday
About face, about face, return and no more stray

(instrumental)

I remember when you left to go your own way
It was in December when snow was on the ground
I begged you to return or else my heart would pay
About face, about face, no new love have I found

About face, about face, my love is out of sight
Please return, my darling, and end this darkest night
About face, about face, come back across the line
To the time when you said that you’d be only mine

About face, about face, my heart is on the line
      
You’re Wrong I’m Right (Larry W Jones 10/12/2013) (song#6766)

You’re wrong, I’m right, she’s left and gone
I knew she would leave all along
I heard you say she’d always stay
But she’s left and gone her own way

Old pal, you had good intentions
Don’t view it as intervention
You’re wrong, I’m right, she’s left and gone
Somewhere in a Hank Williams song

Oh, I knew what she was up to
Stirred up like a Dixie cup brew
You’re wrong, I’m right, she’s left and gone
I knew she would leave all along

(instrumental)

You’re wrong, I’m right, she’s left and gone
I found the note she left at dawn
Just why she left I have no clue
But she sure left me feeling blue

You’re wrong, I’m right, she’s left and gone
I knew she would leave all along
I heard you say she’d always stay
But she’s left and gone her own way

You’re wrong, I’m right, she’s left and gone
She’s gone from sight so you were wrong
      
Trotting Through Box Canyon (Larry W Jones 10/13/2013) (song#6767)

Fences are all mended, the sun is setting low
I could take my ease on the old corral top rail
But though the day has ended I’ve just gotta go
To watch the sun set down the old Box Canyon trail 

Trotting through Box Canyon as evening sun goes down
An oil painting can’t convey the scene I now see
Cattle herds are grazing, some black and white and brown
A whippoorwill calls from his lonely hill to me

(instrumental)

Purple sage is all in bloom, growing everywhere
Tall canyon walls are wearing their best sunset veil
Looks almost like heaven, a scene beyond compare
Watching the sun set down the old Box Canyon trail 

Trotting through Box Canyon as evening sun goes down
An oil painting can’t convey the scene I now see
Cattle herds are grazing, some black and white and brown
A whippoorwill calls from his lonely hill to me

Trotting through Box Canyon to watch the sun go down
      
I Still Pin Your Name In The Wind (Larry W Jones 10/15/2013) (song#6768)

Dear, I feel regret that my pet is running round
Your new Cadillac has been seen all over town
Though your love is now growing thin
I still pin your name in the wind

Just as the wind blows, you want to be fancy free
Don’t you know I want you to take a chance on me
I guess I will until the end 
I still pin your name in the wind

(instrumental)

Just as the wind blows, you want to be fancy free
Don’t you know I want you to take a chance on me
I guess I will until the end 
I still pin your name in the wind

I still hold out the hope that you’ll return some day
Meanwhile I grope for words to say to make you stay
Though it’s been a fight I can’t win
I still pin your name in the wind

I guess I will until the end 
I still pin your name in the wind
      
Take This Loneliness From Me (Larry W Jones 10/16/2013) (song#6769)

Take this loneliness from me
And a lighter side you’ll see
I won’t be sad and lonely
Take this loneliness from me

I’ll feel so good or better
I might even learn to fly
I’ll be a go go getter
Kiss this loneliness goodbye

Take this loneliness from me
And a lighter side you’ll see
I won’t be sad and lonely
Take this loneliness from me

(instrumental)

Fill my cup with happiness
I know you can do it too
Take away this loneliness
With your love I know is true

Cover me with love and life
And set this heart of mine free
No more emptiness and strife
Take this loneliness from me

Take this loneliness from me
And a lighter side you’ll see
I won’t be sad and lonely
Take this loneliness from me

Take this loneliness from me
      
Go Cowboy Go (Larry W Jones 10/16/2013) (song#6770)

Well, I told her when it comes to cowboys
I was the toughest cowboy in the world
Then she said, just prove you’re not a plowboy
And I’ll be your ever lovin’ cowgirl

Then she said, go cowboy go
Yes, she said, go cowboy go
Well, I won the rodeo
When she said, go cowboy go

Well, I took her out to the big barn dance
Showed her I’m the best dancer in the land
When she looked at me with eyes of romance
I felt the magic in her cowgirl hand

(instrumental)

Then she said, go cowboy go
Yes, she said, go cowboy go
Well, I won the rodeo
When she said, go cowboy go

Well, I told her when it comes to kissin’
That kissin’ a horse is only for fools
And then she told me that she’d been missin’
Cowboy kissin’ that breaks all of the rules

Then she said, go cowboy go
Yes, she said, go cowboy go
Well, I won the rodeo
When she said, go cowboy go
      
Cowboy’s Holiday (Larry W Jones 10/17/2013) (song#6771)

Saddle up your pony and ride off down the trail
The path may be stony but your stride will not fail
In the land where a western man can find his way
On a cowboy’s holiday

At twilight camp, you dine on scrambled moonlight beams
And for breakfast, Champ, line your plate with cowboy dreams
You’ll be livin’ fancy free, no cares come what may 
On a cowboy’s holiday

Make it a long trail ride
View the sun, moon and stars above
Think of your future bride
Two hearts beat for a cowboy’s love

(instrumental)

Make it a long trail ride
View the sun, moon and stars above
Think of your future bride
Two hearts beat for a cowboy’s love

Cowboy, kiss your horse and don’t mind if someone sees
You will miss her of course but just do as you please
Don’t forget to come home from where you roam or stray
On a cowboy’s holiday
      
West Of Prescott (Larry W Jones 10/17/2013) (song#6772)

A little way west of Prescott
Play all day in an old saloon
A little way west of Prescott
I met a cowgirl there last June  

Her name’s Dorothy but known as Dot
A little way west of Prescott
I left there but I came back soon
To see that girl called Prescott Dot
For that cowgirl called Prescott Dot

I caught a stage and headed back
A little way west of Prescott
With guitar on the stage roof rack
To play for my sweet Prescott Dot

(instrumental)

Dot and I own a little ranch
And I’m sure proud of all I’ve got
A young cowboy’s on our tree branch
A little way west of Prescott

Cattle are in the big corral
A little way west of Prescott
I love Dot and my saddle pal
A little way west of Prescott

A little way west of Prescott
I met a cowgirl there last June  
I love Dot and my saddle pal
A little way west of Prescott Arizona
      
Loveless Ranch House On The Range (Larry W Jones 10/18/2013) (song#6773)

From high up there on a mournful mountain
He knows her loneliness will never change
From his cabin window on the mountain
He can see her big ranch house on the range

He remembers the day when she departed
A cabin for a ranch house she exchanged
But there’s no love for the broken hearted
Down in a loveless ranch house on the range

(instrumental)

He’s been waiting and hoping for years now
For her to return though it does seem strange
Cause he knows she can’t be happy anyhow
Down in a loveless ranch house on the range

He can see a lantern in her window
In a house that looks empty in the rain
Oh how sad she must be as a widow
Down in a loveless ranch house on the range
      
After You Depart (Larry W Jones 10/18/2013) (song#6774)

After you depart and leave me crying
After you depart there’s no denying
You will feel bad and you will feel sad
You’ll miss the best love you ever had

There will come a day, don’t forget it
Recall words I say, you’ll regret it
When that day arrives and you’re lonely
Your heart won’t be the one and only
Sad broken heart after you depart

(instrumental)

After you depart and leave me crying
After you depart there’s no denying
You will feel bad and you will feel sad
You’ll miss the best love you ever had

There will come a day, don’t forget it
Recall words I say, you’ll regret it
Mistakes will haunt you, heartbreaks will too
You will walk the floor and you’ll be blue
After you depart and go away
      
All American Texas Girl (Larry W Jones 10/19/2013) (song#6775)

Her home sweet home is Texas as far as her eyes can see
All American Texas girl as country as she can be

Each day she starts her morning dialing on her radio
Old Hank Williams country songs from a Grand Ole Opry show
Marty Robbins sings El Paso and Monroe’s Uncle Pen
An all American Texas girl just as she’s always been

Hank Snow’s from Nova Scotia but a star in Tennessee
And she loves to hear him sing I’m Movin’ On, rolling free
She’s raised on Texas sunshine and it shows for all to see
All American Texas girl as country as she can be

(instrumental)

Each day she starts her morning dialing on her radio
Old Hank Williams country songs from a Grand Ole Opry show
Marty Robbins sings El Paso and Monroe’s Uncle Pen
An all American Texas girl just as she’s always been

One day she went to Nashville and sang just like Patsy Cline
Folks at the Blue Bird Café said her songs were sounding fine
Now she’s singing at the Opry where stars of country smile
An all American Texas girl on the radio dial

Now she’s singing at the Opry where stars of country smile
An all American Texas girl on the radio dial
      
Almost Galveston (Larry W Jones 10/19/2013) (song#6776)

She was raised in Minnesota
Where long winters grew colder year by year
And she feared of growing older
So she dreamed of some place to bring her cheer
Her dreams are almost Galveston
Almost a place to run
Her dreams are almost Galveston
Almost warm Texas sun

She moved out of Minnesota
But she never made it to Texas soil
Truck broke down in Oklahoma
Where small town Okies don’t need suntan oil
Her dreams are almost Galveston
Almost a place to run
Her dreams are almost Galveston
Almost warm Texas sun

(instrumental)

A window air conditioner
Blows cool air instead of a summer breeze
Old hard times has conditioned her
To turn her head away from hopeless things
Her dreams are almost Galveston
Almost a place to run
Her dreams are almost Galveston
Almost warm Texas sun

Radio says a hurricane
Is blowing through the Gulf of Mexico
In her mind she knows all the same
Down to Galveston she still wants to go
Her dreams are almost Galveston
Almost a place to run
Her dreams are almost Galveston
Almost warm Texas sun
      
Back Home Alone Again (Larry W Jones 10/23/2013) (song#6777)

The weather’s turning nasty, snow is falling down
This cold day has been a weight upon my shoulders
The windows are so drafty, like an old ghost town
And the night is getting late and getting colder

Well, it’s so sad to be back home alone again
In this old shingled shack without a single friend
Yeah, it’s so sad to be back home alone again

I’ve heard no recent news about her for months now
And I don’t choose to listen to what neighbors say
It ain’t true or decent, all the talk anyhow
My only vision is to look at yesterday

(instrumental)

Well, it’s so sad to be back home alone again
In this old shingled shack without a single friend
Yeah, it’s so sad to be back home alone again

Well, it’s time to get some rest for this old body
Be my guest if you ever want to live like me
Don’t be blaming me if your whole world looks shoddy
And you’re back home alone for all the world to see

Well, it’s so sad to be back home alone again
In this old shingled shack without a single friend
Yeah, it’s so sad to be back home alone again
      
Night Train On The Midnight Line (Larry W Jones 10/26/2013) (song#6778)

White light glowing on the trestle track
White smoke blowing from the coal black stack
Night train, leaving me back here so far behind

White steam puffing from the black choo choo
Big wheels rolling while I’m blue, blue, blue
Night train on the midnight line, you’re so unkind

(instrumental)

Well, my darlin’ said her love was true
I didn’t know of her sly design
Now she’s long gone and she left me blue
On that night train on the midnight line

Night train on the midnight line
Night train on the midnight line  
You came, she left right on time
Night train, leaving me back here so far behind
      
Ring In My Heart (Larry W Jones 10/27/2013) (song#6779)

Dear, there’s a ring in my heart
And things called stars in my eyes
I think love has found a start
Now there’s a tie that binds me
Your light of love now blinds me
Yes, there’s a ring in my heart

I now have such peace of mind
A golden fleece is my find
Hidden in a work of art
You’ll be mine and I’ll be true
With love so fine, I’m not blue
Yes, there’s a ring in my heart

(instrumental)

Now you reside in my heart
And with pride I hide the key
Walls of love won’t fall apart
Long as you belong to me

Dear, please say you’ll never leave
If you do, I’ll ever grieve
And follow you off the chart
Dear, I would search everywhere
Somewhere I would find you there
Yes, there’s a ring in my heart

Dear, I would search everywhere
Somewhere I would find you there
Yes, there’s a ring in my heart
      
Billy Bob Stomp (Larry W Jones 10/27/2013) (song#6780)

Down in Texas where real Billy Bob's do thier romp
Each Tom, Dick and Harry does the Billy Bob Stomp
On Billy Bob's Texas dance floor in cowboy boots
The guys and gals are out to show their Texas roots

There were Billy Bobs doin’ the Billy Bob Stomp
Yeah, Billy Bobs were doin’ the Billy Bob Stomp
Down in Texas where real Billy Bobs do their romp
Each Tom, Dick and Harry does the Billy Bob Stomp

Well, I love Billy Bob’s when the music begins
I grab a pretty lady and we romp right in
Then I tell my pretty lady to go, go go
But now darlin’, don’t you step on Billy Bob’s toe

(instrumental)

There were Billy Bobs doin’ the Billy Bob Stomp
Yeah, Billy Bobs were doin’ the Billy Bob Stomp
Down in Texas where real Billy Bobs do their romp
Each Tom, Dick and Harry does the Billy Bob Stomp

A friend from New York came down to stay for awhile
I told him Billy Bob’s Texas would make him smile
He thought the Billy Bob Stomp just couldn’t be true
So I took him there and now he’s doin’ it too

There were Billy Bobs doin’ the Billy Bob Stomp
Yeah, Billy Bobs were doin’ the Billy Bob Stomp
Down in Texas where real Billy Bobs do their romp
Each Tom, Dick and Harry does the Billy Bob Stomp
      
Brighten The Path On Which You Tread (Larry W Jones 10/29/2013) (song#6781)

People, brighten the path on which you tread
Brighten the path on which you tread
Someone may need your hand to get ahead
Brighten the path on which you tread

Don’t delay for even a day or two
Here is what you can do instead
To your neighbors show you care for them too
Brighten the path on which you tread

People, brighten the path on which you tread
Brighten the path on which you tread
Someone may need your hand to get ahead
Brighten the path on which you tread

(instrumental)

You may have some ability to share
Don’t give in to futility or dread
Extend your hand to people everywhere
Brighten the path on which you tread

People, brighten the path on which you tread
Brighten the path on which you tread
Someone may need your hand to get ahead
Brighten the path on which you tread
      
Burning The Bunkhouse Down (Larry W Jones 10/29/2013) (song#6782)

Cows in the holding pen sure are a restless lot
Wranglers including Trail Boss Ben are in a trot
The cowboy band is right in tune with western sounds
It’s wall to wall with Little Joe and Slim who’s tall
Cowboys are burning the bunkhouse down

Cowboys are burning the bunkhouse down to the ground
The cowboy band knows how to make ‘em dance around
Girls look cute in cowgirl boots and calico gowns
The round dance is turning to do-si-do –ing square
Cowboys are burning the bunkhouse down

(instrumental)

The herd inside the door’s hot as telegraph wires
And the strings on the old banjo are smoking fire
The night is fun and there ain’t no one with a frown
The roundup is done and I’m a son-of-a-gun
Cowboys are burning the bunkhouse down
 
Cowboys are burning the bunkhouse down to the ground
The cowboy band knows how to make ‘em dance around
Girls look cute in cowgirl boots and calico gowns
The round dance is turning to do-si-do –ing square
Cowboys are burning the bunkhouse down
      
Cardboard Cutout Cowboy (Larry W Jones 11/09/2013) (song#6783)

I wrote a letter and mailed it home
And apologized for leaving her alone
She wrote back in a different tone
About cowboys who are Hollywood unknowns

You’re like a cardboard cutout cowboy
Who’s out of touch with reality it seems
Just like a cardboard cutout cowboy
A poster child of the phony silver screens

(instrumental)

She knows I left her back in Texas
For cowboy shows on Hollywood silver screens
She don’t understand that Texas
means cowboy hats, boots and old Levi jeans

You’re like a cardboard cutout cowboy
Who’s out of touch with reality it seems
Just like a cardboard cutout cowboy
A poster child of the phony silver screens
 
I’m like a cardboard cutout cowboy
Who’s out of touch with reality it seems
Just like a cardboard cutout cowboy
A poster child of the phony silver screens
      
Rose Of Laredo (Larry W Jones 11/09/2013) (song#6784)

I traveled south of the border
In search of some heart to romance
My search ended in Laredo
At the start of a Rumba dance

That senorita looked so fine
Her eyes were so happy and gay
I knew that she would soon be mine
That sweet rose down Laredo way

And so I told her manana
As long as both of us may live
She would be my prima donna
And to her my heart I would give

(instrumental)

That senorita looked so fine
Her eyes were so happy and gay
I knew that she would soon be mine
That sweet rose down Laredo way

Oh, but now I must forget her
For duty said I cannot stay
But I will never regret her
My sweet rose down Laredo way

Oh, but now I must forget her
For duty said I cannot stay
But I will never regret her
My sweet rose down Laredo way
      
Petticoat Junction (Larry W Jones 11/10/2013) (song#6785)

Put on your new petticoat and meet me at the junction
By the railroad half way between Hooterville and Pixley
That locomotive number three gives off a heavy beat
Petticoat Junction is the place to dance and shake your feet

Meet me down at the junction when the sun begins to set
Betty, Bobbie and Billie Jo are pretty as it gets
Uncle Joe Carson gonna show us how to paint the town
Yeah, meet me at Petticoat Junction when the sun goes down

(instrumental)

You can park your Cadillac anywhere along the street
As long as you act nice to Kate and other folks you meet
Now, Charley Pratt and Floyd Smoot knows what the function means
With Betty, Bobbie and Billie Jo on the Junction scene

Meet me down at the junction when the sun begins to set
Betty, Bobbie and Billie Jo are pretty as it gets
Uncle Joe Carson gonna show us how to paint the town
Yeah, meet me at Petticoat Junction when the sun goes down
      
Driving Away from Nashville Town (Larry W Jones 11/11/2013) (song#6786)

I’m driving away from Nashville town
I’m driving away from Nashville town
I’m driving away from Nashville town
And my drivin’s gonna drive me down

I was born in nineteen forty four
On April six and not a day more
Mama said Dad was walking the floor
He was gonna go driving, driving
Gonna go driving away from there

(instrumental)

My dear Mama told me in due time
In Nashville son, you can’t walk the line
And you won’t even make one thin dime
Get in your pickup and go driving
My son, go driving away from here

I’m driving away from Nashville town
I’m driving away from Nashville town
I’m driving away from Nashville town
And my drivin’s gonna drive me down

(instrumental)

I got a letter the other day
Uncle said Mama had passed away
And he said it was too late to pray
Stay down in Texas and drive around
Don’t bother drivin’ to Nashville town

I’m driving away from Nashville town
I’m driving away from Nashville town
I’m driving away from Nashville town
And my drivin’s gonna drive me down

I’m driving away from Nashville town
I’m driving away from Nashville town
I’m driving away from Nashville town
And my drivin’s gonna drive me down
      
Once Burned Twice Shy (Larry W Jones 11/11/2013) (song#6787)

I loved you once and that’s enough
I was a dunce whom you could bluff
I can’t forget hurts that remain
When someone flirts with dying flames

Once burned, twice shy, no fool am I
Burned twice, I’m not that kind of guy
I’m your ex love and not the same
Cause I can’t love a dying flame

(instrumental)

I made changes but not enough
You weren’t satisfied with such stuff
I wouldn’t use a ten foot pole
Cause I’m not under your control

Once burned, twice shy, no fool am I
Burned twice, I’m not that kind of guy
I’m your ex love and not the same
Cause I can’t love a dying flame

Once burned, twice shy, no fool am I
Burned twice, I’m not that kind of guy
Oh no, I’m not that kind of guy
      
Easier Than Yesterday (Larry W Jones 11/12/2013) (song#6788)

I believe that somehow tomorrow
Will be easier than yesterday
Now, I know it ain’t here, but it’s near
And I believe it’s coming my way

Call it wishful thinking or a dream
I’ve not been drinking or anything
I believe that somehow tomorrow
Will be easier than yesterday

(instrumental)

With both hands I’m sprucing up my yard
And I’m introducing things that pay
Planting future fruit trees is real hard
But I’m looking way past yesterday

Call it wishful thinking or a dream
I’ve not been drinking or anything
I believe that somehow tomorrow
Will be easier than yesterday

(instrumental)
 
The summer’s hot but I don’t complain
Cause they get rain on the plain in Spain
Call it wishful thinking or a dream
Yes, I believe in what isn’t seen

I believe that somehow tomorrow
Will be easier than yesterday
Now, I know it ain’t here, but it’s near
And I believe it’s coming my way

I believe that somehow tomorrow
Will be easier than yesterday
      
Blue Lane Called Lonely (Larry W Jones 11/13/2013) (song#6789)

I’m telling myself that it’s all over
My darling, I just wanted you to know
And although you won’t say you are sorry
Don’t worry, for my heart still loves you so   

You may be wondering just where I am
Well, sometimes I wonder the same thing too
Others are with me but no traffic jam
We’re all walking a lonely lane called blue

I’m walking down a blue lane called lonely
Away from the place known as Heartbreak Town
This dreary road is not in name only
Along here, more broken hearts can be found

(instrumental)

The road bed is paved with pain and sorrow
And there is no soft shoulder to cry on
Most of us will still travel tomorrow
Walking down this old blue lane of bygones

The hands on my old watch never move now
They both stand just a notch away from lost
No future, just mem’ries to remove now
Oh, I will try no matter what the cost 

I’m walking down a blue lane called lonely
Away from the place known as Heartbreak Town
This dreary road is not in name only
Along here, more broken hearts can be found
      
Can’t Keep My Mind From Reminding Me Of You (Larry W Jones 11/14/2013) (song#6790)

Lately your touch was as cold as the rain
That falls down from the cloudy winter skies
It was too much to wish things were the same
Our love was drowned in yesterday’s goodbye

Even though you didn’t mind making me blue
I can’t keep my mind from reminding me of you
How I have tried but I find this so true
I can’t keep my mind from reminding me of you

(instrumental)

I told myself it that was time to go
And wrote you a note to say we were through
I took out my bag and filled it with clothes
Then tore up the note I wrote just for you

Even though you didn’t mind making me blue
I can’t keep my mind from reminding me of you
How I have tried but I find this so true
I can’t keep my mind from reminding me of you

(instrumental)

I wish I could find a way to be free
To just free my mind and let me be me

Even though you didn’t mind making me blue
I can’t keep my mind from reminding me of you
How I have tried but I find this so true
I can’t keep my mind from reminding me of you

Even though you didn’t mind making me blue
I can’t keep my mind from reminding me of you
      
Seven Hills Of Lynchburg (Larry W Jones 11/15/2013) (song#6791)

When I saw her, love would draw her
For I knew I would make her mine
When she spoke of old Virginia
I saw the love in eyes that shined

And she spoke of hills she lived on
In Virginia by water mills
And since then I’ve sung this folk song
Of old Lynchburg’s own seven hills

(instrumental)

Here the sun glows on the new rose
When the summer is drawing nigh
I know she knows as our paths chose
In Virginia true love came by

There’s reality in eternity
When hearts like ours true love instills
What is sown now is my song now
Of old Lynchburg’s own seven hills

(instrumental)

As the sun rolls into sunset
The seven hills are colored gold
And of two souls when we first met
Our song of love will e’re be told

And she spoke of hills she lived on
In Virginia by water mills
And since then I’ve sung this folk song
Of old Lynchburg’s own seven hills
      
Hamburgers In Birmingham(Larry W Jones 11/15/2013) (song#6792)

Good food is what keeps my driving drivin’
These long hauls are stressful in many ways
Tryin’ to lose weight but man, I’m strivin’
Hard to find a good hamburger these days

Late at night I see these wonderful signs
About hamburgers served with real cured ham
And my eyes get fixated by the lines
Of the freeway exit to Birmingham

Heaven sent hamburgers in Birmingham
Buy one and I get one free is the price
The hamburgers here are the best what am
Truckers love hamburgers in Birmingham

(instrumental)

Over the road men are a lonesome sort
They drive day and night just to hear gears jamb
Whether it’s gonna be long hauls or short
They all love hamburgers in Birmingham

The route gets changed every now and again
But I tell the dispatcher what I need
He reroutes my load but says I’m to blame
For Birmingham burgers on which I feed 

Heaven sent hamburgers in Birmingham
Buy one and I get one free is the price
The hamburgers here are the best what am
Truckers love hamburgers in Birmingham

(instrumental)

I order mine with double cheese and fries
And a diet Coke will do me just fine
When I’m all done driving and when I die
Blame it on Birmingham where truckers dine

Heaven sent hamburgers in Birmingham
Buy one and I get one free is the price
The hamburgers here are the best what am
Truckers love hamburgers in Birmingham
      
Smiling In The Sun (Larry W Jones 11/17/2013) (song#6793)

Oh my dear, I want you to see 
What your love has caused me to be
When I hold your hand, it’s so grand
Just to know the heart I have won 
That’s why I’m smiling in the sun

I don’t need to look for blue skies
For I took one look at your eyes
And you must know I love you so
Cause my heart and yours are now one
That’s why I’m smiling in the sun

Sunbeams are falling from heaven
As they have for eternity
And dear, no matter the weather
My love for you is forever
Just as the sun will always be

(instrumental)

I don’t need to look for blue skies
For I took one look at your eyes
And you must know I love you so
Cause my heart and yours are now one
That’s why I’m smiling in the sun

Sunbeams are falling from heaven
As they have for eternity
And dear, no matter the weather
My love for you is forever
Just as the sun will always be

Cause my heart and yours are now one
That’s why I’m smiling in the sun
That’s why I’m smiling in the sun
      
Swing Time In Texas (Larry W Jones 11/17/2013) (song#6794)

It’s swing time in Texas
Spade Cooley and his band
Honey, let’s go swingin’
To cowboy Dixieland
It’s swing time in Texas
Bob Wills can steal the show
We’ll dance to steel guitars
I’ve heard on radio

Come, let’s do some swingin’
To Texas western sound
It’s swing time in Texas
We’ll dance to Milton Brown

(instrumental)

It’s swing time in Texas
Spade Cooley and his band
Honey, let’s go swingin’
To cowboy Dixieland
It’s swing time in Texas
Bob Wills can steal the show
We’ll dance to steel guitars
I’ve heard on radio

The band’s slowed down a bit
So let’s now dance real close
We make a perfect fit
While swing time music flows

It’s swing time in Texas
Spade Cooley and his band
Honey, let’s go swingin’
To cowboy Dixieland
It’s swing time in Texas
Bob Wills can steal the show
We’ll dance to steel guitars
I’ve heard on radio
      
More Western Than Cowboy Movies (Larry W Jones 11/18/2013) (song#6795)

Now, I’ve heard city slickers talkin’ bout new Levi jeans
About their Stetson hat ‘n boots and all that’s in between
But they don’t even look like real cowboys with their long hair
And they don’t know the diff’rence ‘tween a gelding and a mare
So this cowboy song that I have wrote is real, note for note
Straight from this old horse’s mouth of what western really means

I’m more western than cowboy movies on the silver screen
As western as tall ponderosa pine trees I have seen
I love to hear the sound that comes from yonder prairie hill
It’s the lonesome song of the solitary whippoorwill
I’m a real cowboy who knows what’s best, livin’ in the west

(instrumental)

On streets of Nashville, longhorns above a Cadillac grill
And all the way down to Houston town, it’s the same old drill
Everybody dresses western from their head to their toes
They want to be the cowboys in Hollywood western shows

I’m more western than cowboy movies on the silver screen
As western as tall ponderosa pine trees I have seen
I love to hear the sound that comes from yonder prairie hill
It’s the lonesome song of the solitary whippoorwill
I’m a real cowboy who knows what’s best, livin’ in the west

(instrumental)

I’m more western than cowboy movies on the silver screen
As western as tall ponderosa pine trees I have seen
I love to hear the sound that comes from yonder prairie hill
It’s the lonesome song of the solitary whippoorwill
I’m a real cowboy who knows what’s best, livin’ in the west
      
Texas In Her Heart (Larry W Jones 11/20/2013) (song#6796)

With lone stars in her eyes
And Texas in her heart
We honky tonk at night
The old juke box sounds right
With lone stars in her eyes
And Texas in her heart
She knows that she’s the girl
And the only one this cowboy will ever love

Bright Texas stars, Bright Texas stars
In cowgirl eyes, In cowgirl eyes
Under full moon in Texas skies
Bright Texas stars are in her eyes and heart


If you ever feel blue
Remember I love you
As long as lone stars shine remember that you’re mine

(instrumental)

With lone stars in her eyes
And Texas in her heart
WE honky tonk at night
The old juke box sounds right
With lone stars in her eyes
And Texas in her heart
She knows that she’s the girl
And the only one this cowboy will ever love

Bright Texas stars, Bright Texas stars
In cowgirl eyes, In cowgirl eyes
Under full moon in Texas skies
Bright Texas stars are in her eyes and heart

With lone stars in her eyes
And Texas in her heart
She knows that she’s the girl
And the only one this cowboy will ever love
      
Back Roads And Country People (Larry W Jones 11/21/2013) (song#6797)

I love those back roads and country people
Who live outside of town
Cause I’m a back roads and country person
The country’s where I’m found

I wet a fish hook most every weekend
Tied to my country toes
And I’ve read the Good Book from end to end
It’s so much more than prose

I hear a glad welcome at every turn
Good country people never put me down
Some still make butter from a butter churn
They live outside of town

(instrumental)

Out in the country, folks don’t get rowdy
They give a big howdy to all they meet
I love to walk and wander down back roads
I can’t be fond of big town city streets

I love those back roads and country people
Who live outside of town
Cause I’m a back roads and country person
The country’s where I’m found

I love those back roads and country people
Who live outside of town
      
Outbound Rails I’ll Ride (Larry W Jones 11/21/2013) (song#6798)

I don’t know what to say or what to do
Since I saw someone new walking close by her side
I love her but brother, I’m telling you
It’s to the train station for outbound rails I’ll ride

That new fellow’s a stranger in our town
And there’s danger that our intentions will collide
I think I can see just what’s going down
It’s to the train station for outbound rails I’ll ride

I always thought our thinking was alike
I had no inkling that hers might not be the same
But now I know who has to take a hike
I can see I won’t be the one to change her name

(instrumental)

That new fellow’s a stranger in our town
And there’s danger that our intentions will collide
I think I can see just what’s going down
It’s to the train station for outbound rails I’ll ride

I always thought our thinking was alike
I had no inkling that hers might not be the same
But now I know who has to take a hike
I can see I won’t be the one to change her name

Yes, there’s danger that our intentions will collide
It’s to the train station for outbound rails I’ll ride
      
Call My Goodbye Gone (Larry W Jones 11/22/2013) (song#6799)

Just call my goodbye gone, don’t hang your head and cry
You may not like my song, but dear you didn’t try
I bought you frills and lace, you threw them in my face
Don’t look for me at dawn, just call my goodbye gone

I’ll soon be on my way, I won’t come back some day
Though you don’t care today, tomorrow you will pay
Now don’t think I’m unkind for leaving you behind
Just call my goodbye gone cause that’s what’s on my mind

(instrumental)

I never done you wrong, I loved you all along
But you lived for that late night honky tonkin’ throng
I knew just where you were, in town you caused a stir
My dear, you should have stayed at home where you belonged

Just call my goodbye gone, don’t hang your head and cry
You may not like my song, but dear you didn’t try
I bought you frills and lace, you threw them in my face
Don’t look for me at dawn, just call my goodbye gone

Don’t look for me at dawn, just call my goodbye gone
      
Diamond Jim (Larry W Jones 11/22/2013) (song#6800)

There’s a big trail boss whose neck is
As stubborn as his face is grim
He runs a ranch down in Texas
Where cowboys call him Diamond Jim
They say he keeps all his money
Hidden somewhere in Dead Man Draw
Believe me boys, ain’t so funny
Most was made way outside the law

Well, I signed on for his trail drive
With a goodwill shake of our hands
Now boys, sure as I am alive
The horse he gave could barely stand
Our best food was trail lizard stew
Toward the end we looked mighty slim
Yeah boys, we were a motley crew
In the employ of Diamond Jim

Now, Jim wore a big white Stetson
A forty five strapped to his hips
He caused us to sweat and fret some
Every time big Jim flapped his lips
Boys, he was such a bad mangler
We despised him from limb to limb
I ain’t never seen a wrangler
As ornery as Diamond Jim

Well boys, I’m tired of his rattle
Real soon boys, I’m a-tellin’ him
I ain’t gonna punch no cattle
In the employ of Diamond Jim
When I’m dead and in the celler
And my future is lookin’ dim
Take my blanket please, you fellers
But my fleas go to Diamond Jim
