Dig A Grave In The Prairie (Larry W Jones 11/22/2013) (song#6801)

Dig a grave in the prairie
Dig a grave in the cold ground
Dig a grave in the prairie
To lay my sweet Mary down

The first time I saw Mary
She was at her ranch house door
Soon I asked her to marry
Right there on the kitchen floor

Arise, arise, sweet Mary
What have desperados done
Open your eyes my Mary
With guns they are on the run

Dig a grave in the prairie
Dig a grave in the cold ground
Dig a grave in the prairie
To lay my sweet Mary down

When last I left sweet Mary
She was standing at our door
A rifle Mary carried
And two pistols Mary wore

Arise, arise, sweet Mary
What have desperados done
And why must I now bury
Sweet Mary, my only one

Dig a grave in the prairie
Dig a grave in the cold ground
Dig a grave in the prairie
To lay my sweet Mary down



Treadmill Highway (Larry W Jones 11/26/2013) (song#6802) This treadmill highway goes on out of sight Back over flats and hills I’m home tonight Old threads of blacktop just go on for miles This old treadmill highway just ain’t my style How many miles til I hold her again Can’t wait until I’m back where I began On this treadmill highway, I’m wasting time Gotta find a way to make this rig fly (instrumental) I’ve got a lonesome feeling that won’t mend Nothing is appealing from end to end My eyes are blinking and both are half-mast I keep thinking I’m going nowhere fast How many miles til I hold her again Can’t wait until I’m back where I began On this treadmill highway, I’m wasting time Gotta find a way to make this rig fly How many miles til I hold her again On this treadmill highway, I’m wasting time

Cowboy From L.A. (Larry W Jones 11/26/2013) (song#6803) Well, I’m an old man and named after my Daddy Who is now an older man with not long to go If my dreams had came true when I was a laddie This house in L.A. would have burned down long ago Make me a cowboy who rides away from L.A. Or a cardboard cutout for an old rodeo Just let me hold on to hope for a brighter day Cause livin’ in L.A. is a hard way to go When I was a young ‘un, I had me a cowgirl She weren’t much to look upon, but I was her fan Long years have passed on now from that brief teenage whirl And tears have been cast that would fill up a big dam (instrumental) Make me a cowboy who rides away from L.A. Or a cardboard cutout for an old rodeo Just let me hold on to hope for a brighter day Cause livin’ in L.A. is a hard way to go There’s ants on the floor, I can see where they’re trailing The plants outside the door are all withered and gray Why does an old cowboy keep weeping and wailing Because there is no joy on the streets of L.A. Make me a cowboy who rides away from L.A. Or a cardboard cutout for an old rodeo Just let me hold on to hope for a brighter day Cause livin’ in L.A. is a hard way to go
Even Then (Larry W Jones 11/27/2013) (song#6804)

The moon in the sky is brightly shining
Down on this lonely town soft as a dove
I can’t sleep with my heart nightly pining
In loneliness now found for my lost love 

Every year in the month of October
My darling, I wonder how you have been
Tomorrow our love will still be over
But dear, I will miss you more even then

(instrumental)

I know I won’t be seeing you again
Although in my arms are where you belong
Sweetheart, try to remember way back when
You were the words and music of my song

Every year in the month of October
My darling, I wonder how you have been
Tomorrow our love will still be over
But dear, I will miss you more even then

Tomorrow our love will still be over
But dear, I will miss you more even then
      
Pollyanna (Larry W Jones 11/27/2013) (song#6805)

Every cowboy loves a cowgirl
This cowboy’s head is in a whirl
She’s a cowgirl from Montana
And her name is Pollyanna

I’m not worried bout anything
I gave Pollyanna a ring
This cowboy loves her, yes siree
And she fell right in love with me

Who’s the most popular cowboy around
Nobody but me, me, me can be found
I’ll holler Yipee in all Montana
Because sweet Pollyanna I have found

(instrumental)

Every cowboy loves a cowgirl
This cowboy’s head is in a whirl
She’s a cowgirl from Montana
And her name is Pollyanna

I’m not worried bout anything
I gave Pollyanna a ring
This cowboy loves her, yes siree
And she fell right in love with me

I’ll holler Yipee in all Montana
Because sweet Pollyanna I have found
      
On Every Trail You Ride (Larry W Jones 11/28/2013) (song#6806)

On every trail you ride, sunshine follows
On every trail you ride, hill or hollows
Cowboys love you and give a big Howdy
They dance a jig that sometimes is rowdy
Here to the Great Divide
On every trail you ride

Face like an angel
Hair in pony tails
Form fine and graceful
In every detail
I’ll make you my bride
And on trails we’ll ride

(instrumental)

On every trail you ride, sunshine follows
On every trail you ride, hill or hollows
Cowboys love you and give a big Howdy
They dance a jig that sometimes is rowdy
Here to the Great Divide
On every trail you ride
 
Cowboys love you and give a big Howdy
They dance a jig that sometimes is rowdy
Here to the Great Divide
On every trail you ride

On every trail you ride
      
Rose Of The Brazos (Larry W Jones 11/28/2013) (song#6807)

One day I met her, rose of the Brazos
Sweetest rose in all of Waco
One day I left her, rose of the Brazos
As she said I will miss you so

All the roses have faded along the Brazos
All except the one rose that lives here in my heart
Some day I’ll meet again the rose of the Brazos
And from that sweet rose in Waco, I’ll never part

(instrumental)

She’s waiting on the banks of the Brazos
Sweetest rose in all of Waco
We’ll meet there on the banks of the Brazos
And I will say I missed you so

All the roses have faded along the Brazos
All except the one rose that lives here in my heart
Some day I’ll meet again the rose of the Brazos
And from that sweet rose in Waco, I’ll never part

We’ll meet there on the banks of the Brazos
And I will say I missed you so
      
Cross Over The Brazos (Larry W Jones 12/02/2013) (song#6808)

I’ve ridden trails day after day
With hidden dreams now cast away
But I’ll cross over the Brazos
Down in Texas the state I love
And there I’ll stay

Most folks I trusted way back there
They dusted me off with their stare
But I’ll cross over the Brazos
Down in Texas the state I love
And there I’ll stay

Folks who live over the Brazos
Still say Howdy in Texas ways
Hitch your pony to any post
We hope you stay for many days

(instrumental)

So there down by the Brazos stream
I’ll live out all my hidden dreams

Now I’ll cross over the Brazos
Down in Texas the state I love
And there I’ll stay
And there I’ll stay
There I’ll stay
      
Everything’s Out Of date In Virginia City (Larry W Jones 12/03/2013) (song#6809) 

I drove into Virginia City on Monday
It was a ghost town with improvements way past due
Ben Cartwright was still dressed in his best from Sunday
He saw me and expressed, what’s this world comin’ to
I asked Little Joe where I could charge my cell phone
He said, I’m not sure just what you’re talkin’ about
That’s when I knew Virginia City was unknown
The one phone in the old town was a telegraph 

Everything’s out of date in Virginia City
Because everything they have there is way too old
The Ponderosa’s corral is such a pity
The old top rail is covered with fungus and mold
Everything’s like bad dreams in Virginia City
They don’t even have a burlesque Can Can show
And when it comes to real comfort they can’t compete
Because they burn real cow chips just to get some heat
You’ll burn the soles of your boots when warming your feet
Yeah boys, everything they have there is way too old
Everything in Virginia City’s way too old

Everything’s out of date in Virginia City
Because everything they have there is way too old
The streets are paved with dirt and everything’s gritty
And the only entertainment’s a rodeo
But cowgirls are pretty in Virginia City
They’re decked out in calico and buttons and bows
I started to think Virginia City’s not real
Because I got a feelin’ they were too gentile
It was so appealing, everything I could feel
Yeah boys, everything we have here is way too old
Everything in Virginia City’s way too old
      
This Blue Steel Guitar (Larry W Jones 12/03/2013) (song#6810)

This blue steel guitar taught me how to play love songs
But they are all somebody done somebody wrong
It led me to places where no true love belongs
Those dimly lit faces misplaced among the throng

This blue steel guitar brought me a lonely lady
Right in tune with her ears and her poor broken heart
I don’t know for sure how it ends but just maybe
This blue steel guitar may just give our love a start

This blue steel guitar is my whole way of living
I will never be a star that you ever knew
But somehow I’m thankful for what it’s now giving
This blue steel guitar has given my poor heart you

(instrumental)

This blue steel guitar brought me a lonely lady
Right in tune with her ears and her poor broken heart
I don’t know for sure how it ends but just maybe
This blue steel guitar may just give our love a start

This blue steel guitar is my whole way of living
I will never be a star that you ever knew
But somehow I’m thankful for what it’s now giving
This blue steel guitar has given my poor heart you
      
Wild Prairie Rose (Larry W Jones 12/04/2013) (song#6811)

Why was I born over here
I will tell, lend me your ear
Maybe only heaven knows
Why I was born a wild rose

I’m just a wild prairie rose
Bound to grow wilder I know
Don’t no one try to tame me
I’m wild as a rose can be

I’m just a wild prairie rose
Pretty as everyone knows
But rose pollen up your nose
Is from me when the wind blows

I’m not a mild prairie rose
All cowboys keep on their toes
Cause I grow where cactus grows
I’m just a wild prairie rose

Young cattle let out a bawl
Just like a bad cattle call
When I tell them one and all
Don’t you make my petals fall

Cowboy Bob and cowboy Bill
Rode up the hill for sweet Jill
Both of them tried to propose
With a picked wild prairie rose

They picked my prairie cousin
And my aunts by the dozen
Sweet Jill fled where no one knows
Just like a wild prairie rose

On the prairie I have played
Now it’s time for me to fade
This wild prairie rose has paid
For being a prairie maid

I’m just a wild prairie rose
Pretty as everyone knows
But rose pollen up your nose
Is from me when the wind blows
      
Kentucky Wildwood (Larry W Jones 12/04/2013) (song#6812)

Oh, I found in Kentucky a raven haired girl
There strolling mid the roses all covered with dew
That girl in Kentucky, she set my mind awhirl
With a smile on her face and eyes of brightest blue

I told her I’d love her if she would be my flower
And how our love would blossom, time would surely show
But she told me I could never come to her bower
For her new husband and lover would surely know

I left in fair Kentucky that raven haired girl
She watched as I departed but she understood
That girl in Kentucky, she set my mind awhirl
And I’ll always remember Kentucky wildwood

(instrumental)

I left in fair Kentucky that raven haired girl
She watched as I departed but she understood
That girl in Kentucky, she set my mind awhirl
And I’ll always remember Kentucky wildwood

Yes, I will remember until I’m old and grey
Kentucky wildwood and the girl I met that day
And when my time has come please carve upon my grave
In Kentucky wildwood his heart he gave away
      
Sal Was A Saddle Pal Of Mine
 (Larry W Jones 12/05/2013) (song#6813)

Sal was a saddle pal of mine
Sal was a saddle pal of mine
Never had no quarrel at anytime
Sal was a saddle pal of mine

Sal died out on the Chisholm trail
Sal died out on the Chisholm trail
It was in cold Winter with sleet and hail
Sal was a saddle pal of mine

Sal never done nobody wrong
Sal never done nobody wrong
He always had a smile and cowboy song
Sal was a saddle pal of mine

(instrumental)

I tied my pony and I cried
I tied my pony and I cried
On the day when I heard that old Sal died
Sal was a saddle pal of mine

Sal was a saddle pal of mine
Sal was a saddle pal of mine
Never had no quarrel at anytime
Sal was a saddle pal of mine
      
Let’s Say Hello Instead Of Goodbye (Larry W Jones 12/06/2013) (song#6814) 

Let’s say hello instead of goodbye in a loving kind of way
My love is strong to right any wrong that might some day come our way
I have lived and loved and I’ve played my part forever and a day
Let’s say hello instead of goodbye in a loving kind of way

The love we’ve had I will not regret whenever you’re on my mind
My happiness was all renewed whenever you were sweet and kind
Our love’s at stake so for heaven’s sake please don’t leave and go away
Let’s say hello instead of goodbye in a loving kind of way

(instrumental)

I found such happiness sweetheart in every darling thing you did
Let’s let good fortune come our way and goodbye may heaven forbid
Remember me and I’ll remember you like it was yesterday
Let’s say hello instead of goodbye in a loving kind of way

If you have met another dear, give him my best and say adieu
I’ll think of you throughout the years until my time on earth is due
But if you change your mind my dear, I beg you to come home and stay
Let’s say hello instead of goodbye in a loving kind of way
      
Rocky Mountain Mud (Larry W Jones 12/06/2013) (song#6815)

Moved my fam’ly up from our southern home
With dreams of Colorado hills to roam
Built a log cabin out of sweat and blood
Heaven on earth was Boulder County dirt
Til it all turned to Rocky Mountain mud

And there was rain on the mountain, floods down below
The stream St Vrain roared like a thousand years ago
But there’s dreams in them hills for me I know

Lookin’ out windows when the rain arrived
Wonderin’ by mornin’ if still alive
Boulder Canyon rocks made a mighty thud
Heaven on earth was Boulder County dirt
Til it all turned to Rocky Mountain mud

Jamestown gold was a hard rock miner’s treat
Til waters came roaring down steep James Creek
Push came to shove to save the ones you loved
Heaven on earth was Boulder County dirt
Til it all turned to Rocky Mountain mud

And there was rain on the mountain, floods down below
The stream St Vrain roared like a thousand years ago
But there’s dreams in them hills for me I know

My wife and my children right thanks they gave
The hand of Almighty was there to save
It took a thousand years for such a flood
Heaven on earth was Boulder County dirt
Til it all turned to Rocky Mountain mud

And there was rain on the mountain, floods down below
The stream St Vrain roared like a thousand years ago
But there’s dreams in them hills for me I know

It took a thousand years for such a flood
And it all turned to Rocky Mountain mud
All our dreams turned to Rocky Mountain mud
      
Don’t Hold Back from Telling Me (Larry W Jones 12/06/2013) (song#6816)

If you don’t want me by your side
Then go ahead and flaunt your pride
Dear, don’t hold back from telling me

If you can’t open up your heart
And you have notions to depart
Dear, don’t hold back from telling me

I know you’re pretending he isn’t there
Our love is slowly ending without care
I knew that you have a new love affair

(instrumental)

If you don’t want secrets to linger on
Take my ring from your finger and be gone
My darling, don’t hold back from telling me

If you can’t open up your heart
And you have notions to depart
Dear, don’t hold back from telling me
      
Trails Of Purple Sage (Larry W Jones 12/07/2013) (song#6817)

We’ll remember back when summer winds blow
Across prairies in gentle waves
And tell the west wind in setting sun’s glow
When we rode trails of purple sage

You brought your sweet love and to gaze awhile
Across prairies in gentle waves
In my arms you fell with your gentle smile
When we rode trails of purple sage

Will you ride with me, will you let me know
Across prairies in gentle waves
Tell the west wind in the setting sun’s glow
We’ll ride all trails of purple sage

(instrumental)

I promise dear, that all I have spoken
Are words of truth that will not be broken

Feel the summer wind as it lightly trips
Across prairies in gentle waves
Our heart beats joined as one when kissing lips
When we rode trails of purple sage

Though years may pass since these warm summer days
Across prairies in gentle waves
Our child will learn to live in loving ways
When he rides trails of purple sage

We’ll remember back when summer winds blow
Across prairies in gentle waves
And tell the west wind in setting sun’s glow
When we rode trails of purple sage
      
Rose Of Rangiroa (Larry W Jones 12/08/2013) (song#6818)

He could smell the roses of Tahiti
The brave captain of the Pua Noa
We sailors never heard his soulful plea
When he died on shoals of Rangiroa

Just six short hours of sail from Tahiti
We heard waves of Tiputa breakers roar
Our brave captain steered for the harbor lee
But the Pua Noa would sail no more

The captain had brought his fine ship around
As many times he’d done in Samoa
But now the wooden hull was fast aground
On rocks and coral of Rangiroa

Oh captain, are we now due for drowning
All we sailors cried as a fearful crew
The Pua Noa is smashed and grounded
And her wooden sides are stove through and through

Oh sailors, you are Pua Noa crew
Be brave for we shall reach Tiputa atoll
The captain’s gig holds more than just a few
And to Rangiroa we all shall go

Sailors assembled at the muster deck
The captain’s gig was prepared for launch
Sixteen seats counted in a flustered check
But seventeen souls were our haggared bunch

The captain cried out, now men don’t delay
Don’t think about me or where I’m going
My duty’s to save you sailors today
So be on your way to Rangiroa

Now there is a rose of Rangiroa
It’s beauty is seen by all sailor men
And there is laughter on Rangiroa
And sweet rum for sailors as always been

But no sweet rum can ease my dreadful pain
Even if I were back in fair Samoa
When the captain’s gig returned, we saw plain
Our drowned captain, rose of Rangiroa

He could smell the roses of Tahiti
The brave captain of the Pua Noa
We sailors never heard his soulful plea
When he died on shoals of Rangiroa
      
Fall-Guy Fallacy (Larry W Jones 12/10/2013) (song#6819)

More quarters and beers, memories and tears
He remembers her love from way back when
He’s a fall-guy fool where fallacy rules
When everything he tries can never win
He loves her from the bottom of his heart
But in the end he knows he’s played the part

His life is just a fall-guy fallacy
He fell in love with her but now can’t see
That she just doesn’t love him anymore
His life is just a fall-guy fallacy
Quarters fall in the jukebox endlessly 
While the bartender serves just one beer more

She was his scene, his only scheme
A moonlight dream that now is gone
A few quarters more, who keeps score
Of the times when she done him wrong
He feeds the jukebox quarters endlessly
And all just for a fall-guy fallacy

(instrumental)

More quarters and beers, memories and tears
He remembers her love from way back when
He’s a fall-guy fool where fallacy rules
When everything he does can never win
He loves her from the bottom of his heart
But in the end he knows he’s played the part

His life is just a fall-guy fallacy
He fell in love with her but now can’t see
That she just doesn’t love him anymore
His life is just a fall-guy fallacy
Quarters fall in the jukebox endlessly 
While the bartender serves just one beer more

He feeds the jukebox quarters endlessly
And all just for a fall-guy fallacy
And all just for a fall-guy fallacy
      
Loco Questions (Larry W Jones 12/10/2014) (song#6820)

Well boys, I’ve heard loco questions and often wondered why
So I answer loco questions in a loco reply
Boys, ever pull your boots on with your saddle by your side
And some greenhorn up and asks if you’re goin’ for a ride

Loco questions, I just answer like I’m a loco man
No, I just like the feel of boots and saddle in my hand
Those greenhorn questions, now they don’t come from the wisest men
As for loco questions, now boys, you’ll hear ‘em now and then

Now, when the fence mendin’s all done at the end of the week
And you’re tendin’ to pers’nal chores, you hear some loco speak
Cause when on Friday evenin’, some wrangler will see you bathe
He might ask if you’re a-leavin’ to see some in-town babe

Loco questions, I answer while I’m puttin’ on my duds
No, this tub ain’t for bathin’, I just like the feel of suds
I ain’t felt this clean since I don’t know cause I forgot when
As for loco questions, now boys, you’ll hear ‘em now and then

Well boys, now I know you’ve all met a stranger on the trail
And he asks you after drinkin’ too much sasparilla ale
Old timer, what time does the train arrive in San Antone
And I say it’s on time and he asks has it been postponed

Loco questions, makes an old cowboy want to weep and wail 
No, it ain’t been postponed, that old iron horse is just a snail
The engineer resets his watch back to where time begin
As for loco questions, now boys, you’ll hear ‘em now and then

Now suppose you’re out on roundup and them longhorns stampede
And you ride hell bent for leather to do your cowboy deed
Then your horse steps in a hole and you end up eatin’ dirt
Some fool trail boss will ride up and ask if your horse is hurt

Loco questions, as you lie there and just about dyin’
No boss, I’m just diggin’ for grub worms for Cookie’s fryin’
He likes to cook ‘em when they’re fresh and I’ve just dug up ten
As for loco questions, now boys, you’ll hear ‘em now and then

Now boys, any questions? I thought not. Amen
      
From Now On I Won’t Hang On (Larry W Jones 12/11/2013) (song#6821)

I’ve hung on for a long time my darling
Spending time and every dime just for you
But now my dear I’m tired of quarreling
From now on I won’t hang on to the blues

From now on I won’t hang on to the blues
I’ve gone as far as I can paying dues
A man has to jump from a frying pan
From now on I won’t hang on to the blues

(instrumental)

From now on I won’t hang on to the blues
I’ve gone as far as I can paying dues
A man has to jump from a frying pan
From now on I won’t hang on to the blues

This song I’ve sung was a long time coming
The lines don’t leave out any hidden clues
You’ve forbidden me from your sweet loving
From now on I won’t hang on to the blues

You’ve forbidden me from your sweet loving
From now on I won’t hang on to the blues
      
Wyoming Cowgirl (Larry W Jones 10/11/2013) (song#6822)

Boys, if you’re a-ridin to Wyoming
Where the golden eagle flies in the sky
Look for one pretty for this song to sing
For she was once the cowgirl of my eye

Boys, if you ride when the cold snowflakes fall
And the streams are froze when the summer’s gone
I’ll pay in fine gold to you, one and all
Just to sing to her this cowboy love song

Boys, please tell me true upon your return
If she still has such long and golden hair
Just let her know my heart for her still burns
And how I wish I could be with her there

(instrumental)

It’s been awhile but I recall her smile
As if on a Wyoming angel’s face
A Wyoming cowgirl with grace and style
No other girl can ever take her place

Boys, if you’re a-ridin to Wyoming
Where the golden eagle flies in the sky
Look for one pretty for this song to sing
For she was once the cowgirl of my eye

Look for one pretty for this song to sing
For she was once the cowgirl of my eye
      
Wagon Wheels Gonna Roll Again (Larry W Jones 12/11/2013) (song#6823)

Wagon wheels gonna roll again, the west ain’t gone and done
Hop aboard the old Conestoga and join in the fun
Wagon wheels gonna roll again, not on the silver screen
Wagon wheels gonna roll again across the wide prairie

Now, don’t let the present fool you, the west ain’t gone away
There’s still cowboys ridin’ drag on the Chisholm trail today
Climb aboard the old chuck wagon and sing a western song
Yeah, open up your lungs and get it sung out loud and long

Wagon wheels gonna roll again, the west ain’t gone and done
Hop aboard the old Conestoga and join in the fun
Wagon wheels gonna roll again, not on the silver screen
Wagon wheels gonna roll again across the wide prairie

Wagon wheels gonna roll again, the west ain’t gone and done
Hop aboard the old Conestoga and join in the fun
Wagon wheels gonna roll again, not on the silver screen
Wagon wheels gonna roll again across the wide prairie

Wagon wheels gonna roll again, the west ain’t gone and done
Hop aboard the old Conestoga and join in the fun
Wagon wheels gonna roll again, not on the silver screen
Wagon wheels gonna roll again across the wide prairie

Wagon wheels gonna roll again, Yipee!
      
Ain't No Pie In My Red Cherry Sky (Larry W Jones 12/13/2013) (song#6824)

Sometimes when the sun goes down in the west
There are some clouds that catch a person’s eye
And the ones that I remember the best
Are those that look like a red cherry pie

But now I lead a quiet existence
Ever since you left me with no goodbye
Even the sun has now kept his distance
There ain’t no pie in my red cherry sky

Well now, I thought I was doing alright
I had no reason to think love would die
But now my bright sun has turned into night
There ain’t no pie in my red cherry sky

(instrumental)

Now, I don’t mean to just fuss and complain
But my future’s dim and no wonder why
My sunshine is gone and now here comes rain
There ain’t no pie in my red cherry sky

Yeah now I lead a quiet existence
Ever since you left me with no goodbye
Even the sun has now kept his distance
There ain’t no pie in my red cherry sky

Ever since you left me with no goodbye
There ain’t no pie in my red cherry sky
      
Dancing At The Big Barn Dance (Larry W Jones 12/14/2013) (song#6825)

Boys, set out the hay bales along the walls
Junior Sales gonna call out square dance calls
We’re dancin’ at the big barn dance tonight

Sweep out the wooden floor from front to back
Polish it some more with a burlap sack
We’re dancin’ at the big barn dance tonight

Little Joe’s breakin’ out fiddle and bow
Guess he’s gonna play for a do-si-do
I hear a guitar tunin’ up just right

Bring your pretty girl and give her a whirl
Pretty soon you’ll be in a special world
We’re dancin’ at the big barn dance tonight

Well boys, banjo is home in bluegrass style
But when it’s western swing, the crowd goes wild
So swing with you brung you and stay awhile

Now, some license plates are from out of town
They brought their dates to bring the rafters down
We’re dancin’ at the big barn dance tonight

Boys, scoot a boot two-step in Texas style
And dance your cute darlin’ a country mile
We’re dancin’ at the big barn dance tonight

Listen to the beat of loud percussion drums
Keep your feet movin’ til the morning comes
We’re dancin’ at the big barn dance tonight
      
A Cowgirl’s Man I’ll Be (Larry W Jones 12/16/2013) (song#6826)

A cowgirl, a cowgirl, a cowgirl is for me
If ever I marry, a cowgirl’s man I’ll be

Now, I wouldn’t marry a widow wearin’ black
I’d marry a cowgirl who reins her horses back

I won’t marry a farm girl, always in the dirt
I’d marry a cowgirl wearin’ calico skirts

A cowgirl, a cowgirl, a cowgirl is for me
If ever I marry, a cowgirl’s man I’ll be

(instrumental)

I wouldn’t marry a barmaid who wants money
But I would marry a cowgirl sweet as honey

I won’t marry an uptown dame that I can’t tame
But I’d marry a cowgirl with a shapely frame

Cowboys, oh cowboys, now lend your ear unto me 
If ever I marry, a cowgirl’s man I’ll be

A cowgirl, a cowgirl, a cowgirl is for me
If ever I marry, a cowgirl’s man I’ll be
      
Ray Price (Larry W Jones 12/16/2013) (song#6827)

In Perryville a son was born in twenty six
No one knew as he grew in country sticks
But Texas heard him as he grew into a man
Ray Price was born to lead a country band

Some things are priceless when it comes to souvenirs
Some songs are sung throughout our golden years
Ray Price was priceless on the Grand Ole Opry stage
His voice was grand no matter what his age

From radio KRBC to Big D Jamboree
He would Talk To Your Heart as the last of the breed
Ray told us one and all,Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes
When you’re out honky tonkin’ under City Lights

(instrumental)

Some things are priceless when it comes to souvenirs
Some songs are sung throughout our golden years
Ray Price was priceless on the Grand Ole Opry stage
His voice was grand no matter what his age

Crazy Arms will give you Heartaches By The Number
Those old Burning Memories will bring you under
Ray begged Danny Boy to Make The World Go Away
The Cherokee Cowboy sung his last song today

The Nashville Sound was For The Good Times that we knew
It’s over and done but I’m Still Not Over You
Ray, you gave us your country songs and memories
For that we all thank you and may you rest in peace
      
Blue Blue (Larry W Jones 12/18/2013) (song#6828)

Blue, blue, I’m blue all day
And the nights bring on a chill
Blue, blue, you’ve gone away
Each day makes me bluer still

Like Mama, like daughter is the way you were born
You didn’t cry when you left me alone
You’re just another woman who would blow her horn
When she’s bound for her travelin’ on

Blue, blue, I’m blue all day
And the nights bring on a chill
Blue, blue, you’ve gone away
Each day makes me bluer still

Well, I guess there ain’t no man in this whole wide world
Gonna tell you just how to spend your time
Cause you’re gonna be a good lovin’ ramblin’ girl
With a social ladder waitin’ to climb

Blue, blue, I’m blue all day
And the nights bring on a chill
Blue, blue, you’ve gone away
Each day makes me bluer still

Well, I know you live just for when the sun goes down
Look for situations to get ahead
A red, red carpet in the brightest lights of town
Is the place where you and your feet have fled

Blue, blue, I’m blue all day
And the nights bring on a chill
Blue, blue, you’ve gone away
Each day makes me bluer still

Blue, blue, I’m blue all day
And the nights bring on a chill
Blue, blue, you’ve gone away
Each day makes me bluer still
      
From A Buick To A Bently (Larry W Jones 12/19/2013) (song#6829)

From a Buick to a Bently
She made the grade to luxury
And she broke it to me gently
As if it was some mystery
Well, she’s been gone a few years now
Rubbing shoulders with her new peers
But there’s a frown upon her brow
Her eyes are full of silver tears

Yeah, she traded in her Buick
For champagne and bright lights of town
Now it’s time to face the music
She was their toy they’ve now put down
I’ll pick her up in town some day
In a Buick with worn out gears
And as the Bently drives away
Her eyes will fill with silver tears

From a Buick to a Bently
She made the grade to luxury
And she broke it to me gently
As if it was some mystery

(instrumental)

I saw her in the front page news
At a big ball and looking fine
But I could see she had the blues
When I read words between the lines

Yeah, she traded in her Buick
For champagne and bright lights of town
Now it’s time to face the music
She was their toy they’ve now put down
I’ll pick her up in town some day
In a Buick with worn out gears
And as the Bently drives away
Her eyes will fill with silver tears
      
Worn Dirt Trail (Larry W Jones 12/20/2013) (song#6830)

A worn dirt trail leads way up the mountain
That I walked on every day as a kid
Years ago I could not delay to travel
On down that worn dirt trail, and so I did

Mama saw me go, I saw her weeping
She had begged me, as her son, please don’t go
Daddy gave me words for my safe keeping
As I walked that worn dirt trail so long ago

I went away and became a lost son
The years went on by as I loved to roam
Til the day I knew just what I had done
And I longed for that worn dirt trail and home

(instrumental)

I went away and became a lost son
The years went on by as I loved to roam
Til the day I knew just what I had done
And I longed for that worn dirt trail and home

I returned to the mountain I had known
Now as a man to tell them all my tales
But I found engraved on their cold tombstone
Gone home son, on our mountain worn dirt trail
      
Flow Easy Wide River Flow Easy Wide River (Larry W Jones 12/22/2013) (song#6831)

Flow easy wide river, my sweetheart’s here with me
Flow easy wide river, while our dreams both agree 
Our pledges we’ve given in our true words divine
Flow easy to show us how true love survives time

Tomorrow my sweetheart will become my new wife
And we pray our new start will be free of all strife
Your smooth satin waters are soothing in our view
Flow easy wide river, make our dreams all come true

(instrumental)

Tomorrow my sweetheart will become my new wife
And we pray our new start will be free of all strife
Your smooth satin waters are soothing in our view
Flow easy wide river, make our dreams all come true

Flow easy wide river, my sweetheart’s here with me
Flow easy wide river, while our dreams both agree 
Our pledges we’ve given in our true words divine
Flow easy to show us how true love survives time

Flow easy wide river, for my sweetheart’s love and for mine
      
Catch Me In Your Arms (Larry W Jones 12/22/2013) (song#6832)

Catch me in your arms in case I fall, dear
Don’t move aside for then might fall a tear
Dear, keep me from harm in case I should call 
Please catch me in your arms in case I fall

Now, don’t have hesitation that you can
Make reservations for a fallen man
Your arms mean more to me than warmest gold
Be there for me in case my life unfolds

Catch me in your arms in case I fall, dear
Don’t move aside for then might a tear
Dear, keep me from harm in case I should call 
Please catch me in your arms in case I fall

(instrumental)

When you go out on the town, look for me
I might be falling down for all to see
But it won’t from sweet wine or bottled beer
It will be from the times when you’re not here

Catch me in your arms in case I fall, dear
Don’t move aside for then might a tear
Dear, keep me from harm in case I should call 
Please catch me in your arms in case I fall

Dear, catch me in your arms in case I fall
      
Hear The Banjos Ring In Tennessee (Larry W Jones 12/23/2013) (song#6833)

Hear the banjos ring in Tennessee
Ringing bluegrass in my memory
Just like young Tennessee Jack and Jill
I want to climb up every high hill
To hear banjos ring in Tennessee

On the front porch pickin’ slow or fast
Old dog kickin’ at his fleas enmass
The old homestead that I left behind
Is still felt here in my heart and mind
Hear the banjos ring in Tennessee

(instrumental)

Hear the ringing of the banjo strings
Hear the singing that the music brings
For square dancing, rounding or clogging
Next to the mountain girl I’m hogging
Hear the banjos ring in Tennessee

On the front porch pickin’ slow or fast
Old dog kickin’ at his fleas enmass
The old homestead that I left behind
Is still felt here in my heart and mind
Hear the banjos ring in Tennessee

Hear the banjos ring in Tennessee
      
I Could See All Of Texas (Larry W Jones 12/24/2013) (song#6834)

If I could be a millionaire
I’d buy a place in space somewhere
Because my face would have no care
I could see all of Texas from up there

I could see all of Texas from up there
I would peer down from my own space armchair
While I sang a song and watched cattle roam
I could see all of Texas from up there

I do like my boots on firm ground
In Texas is where I’ll be found
But if I were a space cowboy
I could see all of Texas from up there

(instrumental)

I do like my boots on firm ground
In Texas is where I’ll be found
But if I were a space cowboy
I could see all of Texas from up there

I could see all of Texas from up there
I would peer down from my own space armchair
While I sang a song and watched cattle roam
I could see all of Texas from up there
      
If love Didn’t Live Here Anymore (Larry W Jones 12/26/2013) (song#6835)

If love didn’t live here anymore
Such a lonely place my world would be
If love didn’t live here anymore
I’d just leave and sail the seven seas

But your sweet love has been my lifeline
When dark storms of life began to brew
Dear, your love has been so warm and kind
That’s why I couldn’t live without you

If love didn’t live here anymore
Such a lonely place my world would be
If love didn’t live here anymore
I’d just leave and sail the seven seas

(instrumental)

If love didn’t live here anymore
Such a lonely place my world would be
If love didn’t live here anymore
I’d just leave and sail the seven seas

But you gave our love motivation
That keeps life’s storms from coming ashore
All our dreams would have low duration
If love didn’t live here anymore
      
My Hiking Boots (Larry W Jones 12/26/2013) (song#6835)

My hiking boots don’t fit me as before
No darlin’, they don’t fit me anymore
Stay on your side of the hill, if you will
My hiking boots don’t fit me as before

Darlin’, it’s a far piece from hill to dale
And my hiking boots now make my feet sore
No, it’s not that I’m feeling ill or frail
My hiking boots don’t fit me as before

My hiking boots don’t fit me as before
No darlin’, they don’t fit me anymore
Stay on your side of the hill, if you will
My hiking boots don’t fit me as before

(instrumental)

Our love has gone over the hill darlin’
I know that you don’t love me as before
And since I’m over all the quarrelin’
My hiking boots don’t fit me as before

My hiking boots don’t fit me as before
No darlin’, they don’t fit me anymore
Stay on your side of the hill, if you will
My hiking boots don’t fit me as before
      
Mountain Music Is Coming Down (Larry W Jones 12/27/2013) (song#6836)

Well, I’ve heard that mountain music is coming down
Down the mountain and headed into town
Don’t give a fiddle, long as I’m in the middle
Good old mountain music is coming down

Once my old Gramps got the cramps in both of his knees
From tapping his feet til his knees turned brown
I took him into town, the doctor was well pleased
Good old mountain music is coming down

Well, I’ve heard that mountain music is coming down
Down the mountain and headed into town
Don’t give a fiddle, long as I’m in the middle
Good old mountain music is coming down

(instrumental)

My old Gramps got to feeling fit as a fiddle
He tuned it up and rosined up his bow
He played it as I made corn cakes on the griddle
Then went to town to play on radio

Well, I’ve heard that mountain music is coming down
Down the mountain and headed into town
Don’t give a fiddle, long as I’m in the middle
Good old mountain music is coming down

Once my old Gramps got the cramps in both of his knees
From tapping his feet til his knees turned brown
I took him into town, the doctor was well pleased
Good old mountain music is coming down
      
Hear Me Out (Larry W Jones 12/27/2013) (song#6837)

Hear me out while I squeeze you tight
I’ll ask you please with words that’s right
Dear, just hear me out is my plea

My arms can feel if love is real
What I have to say has appeal
Hear me out and listen closely

What it’s all about is true love
Even without shining stars above
Dear, hear me out and you will see
How true love can be heavenly

(instrumental)

Just hear me out, hear what I say
My love for you is here to stay
Please hear me out eternally

Hear me out while I squeeze you tight
I’ll ask you please with words that’s right
Dear, just hear me out is my plea

Please hear me out eternally
      
Happy Foot Tapping Band (Larry W Jones 12/28/2013) (song#6838)

Ken Little Red Hayes was a happy guy
He made three halls-of-fame in his time
When it came to fiddlin’, Ken wasn’t shy
Yep, Little Red Hayes was a friend of mine

He played four-string fiddle with cowboy pals
Who set the rhythm by tapping their feet
He was so loved by all cowboys and gals
Cause his fiddle playing couldn’t be beat
They called him the best in western swing land
With his happy foot tapping cowboy band

He played the Liberty Texas Opry
Every Saturday when the sun went down
Folks drove from miles around to hear and see
That happy foot tapping band of reknown

(instrumental)

He played four-string fiddle with cowboy pals

Unwelcome Mat (Larry W Jones 12/28/2013) (song#6839)

Did you see someone who stopped by with flowers, dear
He left them for you underneath your dim porch light
And did you find a note that was stained by a tear
I dropped in on your unwelcome mat last night

Did you hear some footsteps on your sidewalk at all
They were stepping slow trying to be so polite 
I know you never heard teardrops from his eyes fall
I dropped in on your unwelcome mat last night

(instrumental)

Did you hear some footsteps on your sidewalk at all
They were stepping slow trying to be so polite 
I know you never heard teardrops from his eyes fall
I dropped in on your unwelcome mat last night

Oh, I know I told myself that it was all wrong
That my love for you could never turn out alright
But I suppose all my dreams are still holding on
I dropped in on your unwelcome mat last night
      
All That I Recall (Larry W Jones 01/03/2014) (song#6840)

Depart with my heart, dear
But darling, take it all
Take away all my tears
And all that I recall

Like moon glow, and rainbow
The sound of waterfalls
Take my heart as you go
And all that I recall

Don’t let me recall that September
As red leaves were falling in the Fall
Because by this coming December
My head and heart might just want to call

(instrumental)

Like moon glow, and rainbow
The sound of waterfalls
Take my heart as you go
And all that I recall

Don’t let me recall that September
As red leaves were falling in the Fall
Because by this coming December
My head and heart might just want to call

Depart with my heart, dear
But darling, take it all
Take away all my tears
And all that I recall
      
My Little Old Big Hearted You (Larry W Jones 01/05/2014) (song#6841)

Now, I was feelin’ down and blue
Countin’ ties on the railroad track
And I didn’t know what to do
Since my blue skies had turned to black
But when you came, hope was renewed
My little old big hearted you

Everywhere I went, time was spent
In solitary with no view
I was down to my last red cent
And my poor heart was broken too
I had no hope until I knew
My little old big hearted you

(instrumental)

The way I was, you would have thought
That I had given up on dreams
But you came along and you taught
Me how to live without extremes
On dark clouds, silver lines you drew
My little old big hearted you

I always wanted a small place
That I could call my very own
And always wished that some sweet face
That looked like yours would come along
Now you’re my heart’s song through and through
My little old big hearted you
      
Tomorrow The Rain’s Gonna Fall (Larry W Jones 01/07/2014) (song#6842)

Tomorrow the rain’s gonna fall
Don’t know if I can make it through tonight
When the morning comes you’ll be out of sight
Tomorrow the rain’s gonna fall

There’ll be raindrops from the sky
And I know some will fall down from my eyes
Cause they started when you said your goodbyes
Tomorrow the rain’s gonna fall

Tomorrow clouds will come my way
Oh, tomorrow will be a cloudy day
And the tears in my eyes will not be small
Tomorrow the rain’s gonna fall

(instrumental)

There’ll be raindrops from the sky
And I know some will fall down from my eyes
Cause they started when you said your goodbyes
Tomorrow the rain’s gonna fall

Tomorrow clouds will come my way
Oh, tomorrow will be a cloudy day
And the tears in my eyes will not be small
Tomorrow the rain’s gonna fall

Tomorrow the rain’s gonna fall
      
Bottle Of Gin And Loretta Lynn (Larry W Jones 01/10/2014) (song#6843)

A bottle of gin and Loretta Lynn and my problems are all gone
Night after night I say hello to my two old friends
These Barroom Habits will remain here with me Before I’m Over You
My best friends, a bottle of gin and Loretta Lynn

Darlin’, I don’t know who he is but He’s Somewhere Between You And Me
I tried to get you off my mind but You’ve Just Stepped In
Is there Any One Any Worse Any Where with friends that sets them free
My best friends, a bottle of gin and Loretta Lynn

(instrumental)

A bottle of gin and Loretta Lynn and my problems are all gone
Night after night I say hello to my two old friends
These Barroom Habits will remain here with me Before I’m Over You
My best friends, a bottle of gin and Loretta Lynn

Is there Any One Any Worse Any Where with friends that sets them free
My best friends, a bottle of gin and Loretta Lynn
My best friends, a bottle of gin and Loretta Lynn
A bottle of gin and Loretta Lynn
      
Don’t Play No Song Of San Antone (Larry W Jones 01/10/2014) (song#6844)

Don’t play no song of San Antone
Don’t play no yellow Texas rose
Somebody done somebody wrong
I know about those songs of woe

Go ahead, drop a quarter in
And listen to that jukebox start
My dreams are dead, love didn’t win
San Antone hides my broken heart

I’m way up here in Abilene
Don’t play no song of San Antone
My dreams are somewhere in between
San Antone and a granite stone

(instrumental)

Go ahead, drop a quarter in
And listen to that jukebox start
My dreams are dead, love didn’t win
San Antone hides my broken heart

Buddy, don’t play that number ten
Now, don’t you know that would be wrong
My dreams are dead, love didn’t win
Don’t play no song of San Antone
      
Born A Cattleman (Larry W Jones 01/11/2014) (song#6845)

Now, I was born in a saddle, leather reins in my hand
Boys, I was born in a saddle, leather reins in my hand
My Daddy was a wrangler, I was born a cattleman

Now, I was born for the roundup, to rope and tie and brand
Boys, I was born for the roundup, to rope and tie and brand
My Daddy was a wrangler, I was born to be top hand

Now, I was born in a saddle, leather reins in my hand
Boys, I was born in a saddle, leather reins in my hand
My Daddy was a wrangler, I was born a cattleman

(instrumental)

Now, I don’t care darlin’, about any other cowgal
No, I don’t care darlin’, about any other cowgal
Just as long as you’re there to meet me at the big corral

Now, I was born in a saddle, leather reins in my hand
Boys, I was born in a saddle, leather reins in my hand
My Daddy was a wrangler, I was born a cattleman
      
Cowgirl From Laramie (Larry W Jones 01/11/2014) (song#6846)

The cowgirl came from Laramie
And all her clothes were calico
She only wanted love from me
I loved only the rodeo

She never married for money
I know because she told me so
But my love was for the money
To be made in the rodeo

The cowgirl’s name was not Jane Doe
Oh, she was much better than that
But in due time she came to know
Rodeo was under my hat

(instrumental)

Her Daddy said I was no good
Listen my dear and please don’t go
That cowboy’s heart is made of wood
He was born for the rodeo

The ranch she came from had a fence
To keep us no good wranglers out
She couldn’t see through my pretense
And what my mind was all about

The cowgirl came from Laramie
And all her clothes were calico
She only wanted love from me
I loved only the rodeo
      
Horse Hair Rope And A Pair Of Ropers (Larry W Jones 01/19/2014) (song#6847)

I drove out of Denver with Bob Taylor
Heading up north to Laramie and home
Hitched to the truck was my two horse trailer
When we got there it looked like she was gone

I told Bob that it just don’t make no sense
But Bob said that’s where I made my mistake
The grass looks much greener outside the fence
When a woman takes more than she can take

Bob was right about our rodeo roots
We’d been acting like a pair of jokers
All she left was a rope tied round some boots
A horse hair rope and a pair of ropers

(instrumental)

She had told me one time or maybe two
That my rodeo love was killing time
And every time I told her, I love you
She said, rodeo love is killing mine

Bob was right about our rodeo roots
We’d been acting like a pair of jokers
All she left was a rope tied round some boots
A horse hair rope and a pair of ropers

All she left was a rope tied round some boots
A horse hair rope and a pair of ropers
      
Gonna Find A Rocky Mountain (Larry W Jones 01/23/2014) (song#6848)

Gonna find a rocky mountain
Gonna go climb it way up high
Gonna find a clear blue fountain
Drink snow water before I die

The good times never come easy
And the bad times are easy come
In between the good and the bad
I’ve had to worry more than some

I’ve always lived in the flatlands
Where life and dreams were not entwined
Think it’s time to leave these badlands
Leave worries and troubles behind

(instrumental)

Gonna find a rocky mountain
Gonna go climb it way up high
Gonna find a clear blue fountain
Drink snow water before I die

Now, nothing else could be finer
Than to find me a mountain friend
She might be a dream designer
Who could put my heart on the mend

Gonna find a rocky mountain
Gonna go climb it way up high
Gonna find a clear blue fountain
Drink snow water before I die
      
Kawliga (Larry W Jones 01/25/2014) (song#6849)

Kawliga was a wooden Indian who ain’t here no more
The Indian maiden who he loved thought he was such a bore
Kawliga-a-a-a-a, he never could make up his mind
Because his mind was made of heart-wood knotty pine

He wore a pair of wooden moccasins made in Amsterdam
His feet hurt so bad he needed a podiatrist exam
Kawliga-a-a-a-a, he never even learned to walk
The Indian maiden waited for him to talk

Poor old Kawliga, he never got her kiss
Poor old Kawliga he don't know what he's missed
Is it any wonder that his face is red
The words she told him are better left unsaid

(instrumental)

One day a wealthy customer paid a ransom for the maid
He said he loved the wooden Indian with her coal black braids
Kawliga stood there and watched them load her in a pickup truck
Then his tear drops flowed because he was out of luck

Poor old Kawliga, he never got her kiss
Poor old Kawliga he don't know what he's missed
Is it any wonder that his face is red
The words she told him are better left unsaid
      
Til There Ain’t No Horse In Houston (Larry W Jones 01/29/2014) (song#6850)

Dear, if you ask me how long I’ll love you
I’ll write it as a song for all to see
If you ask if anyone’s above you
I’ll say you’re on top of the Texas T

I will love you til there ain’t no horse in Houston
Til they build another big Astrodome
To end my loving you, there ain’t no solution
Darlin’, my love just never will be gone

Til they stop their shopping at the Galleria
Til the skyline won’t show the Pennzoil Place
Til they quit eating tortillas and fajitas
Darlin’, til then I’ll be loving your face

(instrumental)

I will love you til there ain’t no horse in Houston
Til they build another big Astrodome
To end my loving you, there ain’t no solution
Darlin’, my love just never will be gone

Til NASA shuts down on the Johnson Space Center
Til there ain’t no more Houston Rodeo
Til there ain’t no more freeways where you can enter
Darlin’, my song will be in stereo

I will love you til there ain’t no horse in Houston
Til they build another big Astrodome
To end my loving you, there ain’t no solution
Darlin’, my love just never will be gone

Darlin’, my love just never will be gone
      
Yesterday’s Ballads (Larry W Jones 01/30/2014) (song#6851)

Yesterday’s ballads
With words they convey
Have faded to gray

Yesterday’s ballads
Are not sung today
There’s nothing to say

Except that I still recall
The biggest thrill of them all
When yesterday’s ballads were new
When you and I had a ball
At the big party dance hall
Where I said darling, I love you

(instrumental)

Yesterday’s ballads
Are now just refrains
That only bring pains

Yesterday’s ballads
Down memory lanes
Won’t be sung again

I suppose yesterday’s tunes
Written under some full moon
Were composed for lovers in June
Now they have faded like dew
I recall places we knew
Where I said darling, I love you
      
You Can’t Find Gold In A Fool’s Gold Mine (Larry W Jones 01/30/2014) (song#6852)

Well, I tried to make her love me
But then she made her get away
I’m in mourning come morning each day
Her love was just an illusion
That just led to my confusion
Well, I guess I must have been blind
You can’t find gold in a fool’s gold mine

When I see gold in morning skies
Tears fall from my eyes right away
And cloud any beauty come what may
Her love was all a fantasy
For me it wasn’t meant to be
Well, I guess I fell for the shine
You can’t find gold in a fool’s gold mine

(instrumental)

Her love was just an illusion
That just led to my confusion
It was all just a fantasy
For me it wasn’t meant to be

Someday if I ever find love
I’ll make sure it’s not fool’s gold love
Oh no, I won’t fall for the shine
You can’t find gold in a fool’s gold mine
      
You Make My Boots Want To Get Up And Scoot (Larry W Jones 01/30/2014) (song#6853)

You make my boots want to get up and scoot
To the music of a western swing band
You make my hat want to be your door mat
The more that you hold my heart in your hand

I was just a lonely cowboy
With only one thing left to do
To find my only cause for joy
And darlin’, that’s when I found you

You make my boots want to get up and scoot
To the music of a western swing band
You make my hat want to be your door mat
The more that you hold my heart in your hand

(instrumental)

Play the fiddles, western swing band
Let’s do the boot scoot boogie dance
Move around the floor hand in hand
My boots and I feel like romance

You make my boots want to get up and scoot
To the music of a western swing band
You make my hat want to be your door mat
The more that you hold my heart in your hand
      
Misery Blues (Larry W Jones 02/01/2014) (song#6854)

I feel the worry of misery blues
My baby’s in big a hurry to leave
And she didn’t even leave me a clue
Just a note that makes my broken heart grieve

This is the day that she’s sayin’ so long
Dog gone, I think I’m a-goin’ to cry
Well, I don’t know what it was I did wrong
To make my sweet baby bid me goodbye

So much for a delicate dream
It broke apart somehow
But I still hold her in esteem
In my heart even now

I know she loved me, she said it was true
But now she’s left me with misery blues

(instrumental)

I know she loved me, she said it was true
But now she’s left me with misery blues

Oh, I had a love but she was a good time gal
Now good times are gone far away from me
It’s a sad song, I was her part time pal
She’s parted and gone to where I can’t see

I know she loved me, she said it was true
But now she’s left me with misery blues
      
Bluebonnet Meadows (Larry W Jones 02/05/2014) (song#6855)

There is a girl I love dearly
Back in the rolling Texas hills
When bluebonnets bloom, I miss her
I love her and I always will

The bluebonnets that are blooming
Have called me back where I belong
I know bluebonnets are blooming
Cause I seem to hear her sweet song

Tonight I’m far from those meadows
Away from those Texas hills
I’m going back to those meadows
Those meadows that bluebonnets fill

(instrumental)

I returned across the border
The girl I loved had gone away
That sad news came from her father
She sleeps under bluebonnets clay

The bluebonnets that are blooming
Have called me back where I belong
I know bluebonnets are blooming
Cause I seem to hear her sweet song
      
Jolly Drifting Cowhand (Larry W Jones 02/07/2014) (song#6856)

Hear my tune as I start to croon
I’m a jolly drifting cowhand
Cuttin’ horse spurred, cows from the herd
Wranglers heatin’ up the cow brand

Wherever I roam is my home
I’m a jolly drifting cowhand
My ride is done through rain and sun
Anywhere there is prairie land

I’ve got no care, none anywhere
I’m a jolly drifting cowhand
Eat cornpone bread, no bunkhouse bed
Bedroll spread wherever I can

(instrumental)

Hear my tune as I start to croon
I’m a jolly drifting cowhand
Cuttin’ horse spurred, cows from the herd
Wranglers heatin’ up the cow brand

I spend my time and silver dime
I’m a jolly drifting cowhand
Hear my song as I ride along
I’m tall in the saddle and tanned

I’ve got no care, none anywhere
I’m a jolly drifting cowhand
Eat cornpone bread, no bunkhouse bed
Bedroll spread wherever I can

Hear my tune as I start to croon
I’m a jolly drifting cowhand
Just a jolly drifting cowhand
      
I Came Awful Close To Losing You (Larry W Jones 02/13/2014) (song#6857)

Darling, I was gone much too often
And you were too often much in need
Of attention long overdue
Those long hauls rolling out of Austin
Left you growing lonely, I concede
I came awful close to losing you

You never questioned my whereabouts
Or when my routes would bring me back home
To Austin one day out of the blue
Once you told me, you too wished to roam
But you never tried your walking shoes
I came awful close to losing you

(instrumental)

You never questioned my whereabouts
Or when my routes would bring me back home
To Austin one day out of the blue
Once you told me, you too wished to roam
But you never tried your walking shoes
I came awful close to losing you

Your love’s what I’ve needed most of all
It’s the one thing that means life to me
When a wife like you shows her love true
I know at times you wished to be free
I’m so glad those long hauls are all through
I came awful close to losing you

I came awful close to losing you
      
I Can’t Sing Away These Lonesome Blues (Larry W Jones 02/14/2014) (song #6858)

I have tried to forget since your goodbye
I regret there are things money can’t buy
What I’ve invested has no dividend
Our happiness was tested to its end

I never dreamed that I would see this day
I should have listened but now it’s too late
I might sail away on a solo cruise
But I can’t sing away these lonesome blues

No, I can’t sing away these lonesome blues
I spent my life and money just to lose
I called you my honey and that’s the truth
But I can’t sing away these lonesome blues

(instrumental)

My billfold is flat, now think about that
I must admit, I’m just your old door mat
I have learned my lesson what ‘ere the cost
I’m in depression deep like one who’s lost

I never dreamed that I would see this day
I should have listened but now it’s too late
I might sail away on a solo cruise
But I can’t sing away these lonesome blues
      
This Cowboy’s Sweetheart (Larry W Jones 02/15/2014) (song#6859)

She wants to be this cowboy’s sweetheart
And teach her how to rope and to ride
She wants to see prairies and deserts
And ride up and o’re the Great Divide

She wants to hear coyotes howling
Well now, just why I can only guess
She wants to be this cowboy’s sweetheart
Because she loves both me and the west

(instrumental)

She wants to ride old Paint in the wind
And feel the wind blowing in her face
Far away from her dear next of kin
Riding like she might come in first place

She wants to sleep next to a cow too
And hear them moo to the moon above
She wants to hear my guitar on cue
When I tell her that she’s my true love
      
Rabbit On The Run (Larry W Jones 02/05/2014) (song#6860)

There goes a rabbit on the run
Dagnabit, I ain’t got no gun
How to catch him, now let me see
Now, most rabbits run in circles
So, I’ll be like all turtles be
And then I’ll catch him in my snare
And soon I’ll be cookin’ that hare
Yep, I’ll just play like a turtle
And then I’ll catch him in my snare
Soon I’ll be eatin’ hairy hare

I’ll build me a big hot campfire
And then I’ll roast that speedy hare
It might sound seedy goin’ down
But I’ll roast him until he’s brown
Then spread my bedroll for the night
And dream of rabbits in moonlight

(instrumental)

Yep, I’ll roast him until he’s brown
Then spread my bedroll for the night
And dream of rabbits in moonlight
Rabbit on the run til daylight

Soon I’ll be ridin’ down the trail
Soles on my boots are almost gone
Just ahead is an old bunk house
I’ll rest my head and weary bones
I roasted him till he was brown
Then spread my bedroll for the night
And dreamed of rabbits in moonlight
Rabbit on the run til daylight
      
Peanut Brittle Heart (Larry W Jones 02/17/2014) (song#6861)

Before she left on the train we said our goodbyes
She promised to return with teardrops in her eyes
I wanted her to stay as sweet as from the start
So I gave her a candy peanut brittle heart

The peanut brittle slipped from her fingers and broke
Into tiny pieces as the conductor spoke
All aboard, as I picked up pieces part by part
And asked if she could mend that peanut brittle heart

(instrumental)

Today the postman came with letters in the snow
One was from the sweetest girl that a man could know
But the lines were not for a brittle heart like mine
For she had wed another farther down the line

I’ll keep that tear-stained letter though it’s now too late
Some things heal but my brittle heart will have to wait
I’ll be in sorrow while Father Time plays his part   
And dream she didn’t drop my peanut brittle heart
      
Riding These Tracks Back To You (Larry W Jones 03/01/2014) (song#6863)

My travel bag is packed, I’m riding down the tracks
It’s been so long since my eyes have seen you
The time that has gone by has seen the tears I’ve cried
Because dear, I’ve been so lonesome and blue

I hope you feel delight in what I know is right
That the love we once knew will be renewed
Too many years alone and many tears have shown
Why I’m now riding these tracks back to you

(instrumental)

I want you as my girl, not just a long lost whirl
Try to remember sweet times we once knew
I’ll be there at high noon so I’ll see you there soon
Cause I’m now riding these tracks back to you

I’m hoping that today bright skies will come our way
And no dark clouds will appear in the blue
Be ready for my arms to hold your many charms
When I’m through riding these tracks back to you
      
Cowboy Quadrangle (Larry W Jones 03/01/2014) (song#6864)

There once were some cowboy pals who sang about cowboy gals
As they drove a big herd of longhorns up the Chisholm trail
They sang songs so lowly and the cattle drive went slowly
But there was a somewhat discontent that came to prevail

The cowboy riding drag wanted to lead with his old nag
The one riding left flank wanted the right where rode old Hank
The cowboy riding lead wanted to stay there on his steed
The one riding right flank just wanted whiskey that he drank

Now, this cowboy quadrangle was not the best of angels
They sang bawdy ballads that turned to red the purple sage
There was no virtuoso but no one dared to say so
Though all the cowboys were all beginning to show their age

The cowboy riding drag wanted to lead with his old nag
The one riding left flank wanted the right where rode old Hank
The cowboy riding lead wanted to stay there on his steed
The one riding right flank drew his pistol but it was blank

The cattle started lowing, impatience started showing
The cowboys cussed the longhorns and the others of the breed
Loud thunder crashed around them and clouds made the daylight dim
But it was the lightning that made the longhorn herd stampede

The cowboy riding drag wanted to lead with his old nag
The one riding left flank wanted the right where rode old Hank
The cowboy riding lead wanted to stay there on his steed
The one riding right flank was drunk and thought it was a prank

Now, all you good cowboys give ear to what I tell you here
Don’t fuss and fight about what side you ride is right or wrong
Boys, just punch them cows on up that Chisholm trail without fail
And you just tell all them little dogies to git along

The cowboy riding drag wanted to lead with his old nag
The one riding left flank wanted the right where rode old Hank
The cowboy riding lead wanted to stay there on his steed
The one riding right flank traded places with cowboy Hank
      
Alabama Alibi (Larry W Jones 03/02/2014) (song#6865)

As morning breaks the darkness on my Alabama home
I roll across the Mississippi line
This old Ford F-150 tires sing as I drive along
And the road disappears in miles behind

Oh, I thought I would find happiness in another state
But no other place ever suited me
An Alabama alibi proved just what was my fate
Yes, Alabama set my mind at ease

(instrumental)

A U-turn in Arizona, the setting sun was seen
In my rear view mirror looking mighty fine
Alabama has no desert, the grass is mighty green
That water well is filled with finest wine

Oh, I thought I would find happiness in another state
But no other place ever suited me
An Alabama alibi proved just what was my fate
Yes, Alabama set my mind at ease
      
Hello Sunshine (Larry W Jones 03/02/2014) (song#6866)

(Hello Sunshine)

Hello sunshine, gee but I missed your smile
For your smile, I’ve traveled many a mile
I was lonesome and lonely tears would start
But thoughts of you brought bluebirds to my heart

You kept blue eyes full of love I now see
And blue skies have been waiting just for me
I worried but everything turned out fine
So, goodbye to rain and hello sunshine

(instrumental)

You kept blue eyes full of love I now see
And blue skies have been waiting just for me
I worried but everything turned out fine
So, goodbye to rain and hello sunshine

I worried but everything turned out fine
So, goodbye to rain and hello sunshine
Hello sunshine (Hello) 
      
For Your True Love (Larry W Jones 03/03/2014) (song#6867)

Take a pen and then begin
To draw a line round the moon
That’s just how far up above
I would go for your true love

Count all the stars in the sky
Count their twinkles from on high
Make believe that they’re made of
Lights that burn for your true love

Make believe that they’re made of
Lights that burn for your true love

(instrumental)

Around the moon draw a line
It may take a long long time
That will not be the end of
Thankfulness for your true love

Count all the stars in the sky
Count their twinkles from on high
Make believe that they’re made of
Lights that burn for your true love

Make believe that they’re made of
Lights that burn for your true love
      
I Forgot You Yesterday (Larry W Jones 03/08/2014) (song#6868)

A memory is just something that someway comes about
And it’s also something that surely we can’t live without
I know because someway a memory came by today
Had to remind myself that I forgot you yesterday

Your old memory appeared so sublime
But the tears it brought me was like a crime
All those thoughts I thought had been cast away
Cause my dear, I forgot you yesterday

(instrumental)

It seems that I’ve been forgetting about you for awhile
It’s just not fitting that your memory still makes me smile
At daybreak I felt the ache that always comes, come what may
Had to remind myself that I forgot you yesterday

Your old memory appeared so sublime
But the tears it brought me was like a crime
All those thoughts I thought had been cast away
Cause my dear, I forgot you yesterday

All those thoughts I thought had been cast away
Cause my dear, I forgot you yesterday
      
Riding My Old Pony Home (Larry W Jones 03/08/2014) (song#6869)

I lost in a gamble, now I’m on a ramble
Lost in a gamble boys, now I’m on a ramble
Lost all but my clothes, my hat, boots and comb
And now I’m riding my old pony home

Clouds forming o’er the plain and it sure looks like rain
Clouds forming o’er the plain boys, it sure looks like rain
Cloudy as my song as I ride along  
And now I’m riding my old pony home

I lost in a gamble, now I’m on a ramble
Lost in a gamble boys, now I’m on a ramble
Lost all but my clothes, my hat, boots and comb
And now I’m riding my old pony home

(instrumental)

A few more miles to go, I’ve got nothing to show
Few more miles to go boys, I’ve got nothing to show
I lost it all when I went out to roam
And now I’m riding my old pony home

I lost in a gamble, now I’m on a ramble
Lost in a gamble boys, now I’m on a ramble
Lost all but my clothes, my hat, boots and comb
And now I’m riding my old pony home

I lost in a gamble, now I’m on a ramble
Lost in a gamble boys, now I’m on a ramble
Lost all but my clothes, my hat, boots and comb
And now I’m riding my old pony home
      
Howdy Do Country Dew (Larry W Jones 03/09/2014) (song#6870)

Howdy do country dew
I’m back home where I grew
Every day is brand new
Howdy do country dew

Just like a new born man
I return when I can
To this place I once knew
Howdy do country dew

On the porch watching skies
Blue looks good to my eyes
Here my worries are few
Howdy do country dew

(instrumental)

Howdy do country dew
I’m back home where I grew
Every day is brand new
Howdy do country dew

My often thoughts of you
Soften times we’ve been through
Good love is still in view
Howdy do country dew

Howdy do country dew
I’m back home where I grew
Every day is brand new
Howdy do country dew
      
Banjo Strings That Ring (Larry W Jones 03/09/2014) (song#6871)

When I get home at end of day
Rock on the porch cause that’s my way
Listen to the blue birds that sing
And play it out on strings that ring

Banjo strings that ring in the air
Back woods music that’s meant to share
Neighbors come like birds fly on wing
To hear me play on strings that ring

(instrumental)

When I retire I have to say
My fire will be for banjo play
My mind’s at ease with anything
When I play out on strings that ring

Banjo strings that ring in the air
Back woods music that’s meant to share
Neighbors come like birds fly on wing
To hear me play on strings that ring

To hear me play on strings that ring
To hear me play on strings that ring
      
When Springtime Buds Begin To Bloom (Larry W Jones 03/09/2014) (song#6872)

When Springtime buds begin to bloom
Is when I feel a sense of doom
My Mother’s voice just like a song
Says to me, don’t stay gone too long

When just a lad of sixteen years
I left my home without a tear
Silver and gold I made in time
With a heart made of knotty pine

When Springtime buds begin to bloom
Is when I feel a sense of doom
My Mother’s voice just like a song
Says to me, don’t stay gone too long

(instrumental)

Dad and Mother have passed away
I never wrote to even say
That all my wealth I would have shared
Or just to say for them I cared

When Springtime buds begin to bloom
Is when I feel a sense of doom
My Mother’s voice just like a song
Says to me, don’t stay gone too long

When Springtime buds begin to bloom
      
Bluebonnet Bells Are Ringing (Larry W Jones 04/02/2014) (song#6873)

Moonlight shining over Texas
Is such a dreamy silver thing
Shining down on fields and meadows
Waiting for morning doves to sing

Down in Texas in the moonlight
Not far away from Tennessee
Those bluebonnet bells are ringing
In the hill country tenderly

(instrumental)

Moonlight shines for you and me, dear
When we go strolling hand in hand
Makes me want to hold you so near
Here in our Texas Dixieland

A wedding ring I'll be bringing
To place so gently on your hand
Where bluebonnet bells are ringing
Here in our Texas Dixieland
      
Down To Old Laredo (Larry W Jones 04-13-2014) (song#6874)

I rode down to old Laredo
Down along the Rio Grande
Stepped inside a cantina
Heard a mariachi band

Oh, raven hair, eyes of coal
Her lips painted red as wine
I fell in love, heart and soul
And I knew I'd make her mine

Destination, El Paso
Oh, but then I changed my mind
I rode down to old Laredo
And there a love I did find

Oh, raven hair, eyes of coal
Her lips painted red as wine
I fell in love, heart and soul
And I knew I'd make her mine

As we danced, I held her close
And I whispered in her ear
Please be my Laredo rose
And her answer was so clear

Oh, raven hair, eyes of coal
Her lips painted red as wine
I fell in love, heart and soul
And I knew I'd make her mine

That same mariachi band
Played there on our wedding day
A band of gold on her hand
Said true love was there to stay

Oh, raven hair, eyes of coal
Her lips painted red as wine
I fell in love, heart and soul
And I knew I'd make her mine
      
Severed Tie That Binds (Larry W Jones 04/13/2014) (song#6875)

He was born out in the country
At a bottom land cotton patch
Ever since he moved into town
He always dreamed of movin' back

To where a family was one
Held tightly by a tie that binds
Cotton pickin' was always done
With love in the back of their minds

(instrumental)

But his brothers had left and gone
One to the east, another west
His Mama looked sad and withdrawn
Where Daddy was, she only guessed

Now he just wonders what went wrong
And what it was went through their minds
And now he sings a country song
About a severed tie that binds
      
Cowboy Riding O'er The Prairie (Larry W Jones 04/13/2014) (song#6876)

The western sky was all aglow as the sun was sinking low
Reflecting on a cowgirl in calico so slim
And it was in the month of May when the prairie blooms in sage
That he held her in his arms and then she said to him

You're a cowboy riding o'er the prairie
A cowboy riding there I see
Brave and so tall, for you my heart does fall
Riding o'er the prairie for me

(instrumental)

One day a letter came and no future day would be the same
The trail boss wrote that her brave and tall cowboy was dead
With great shock and much surprise, many teardrops fell from her eyes
As she thought about the words to him that she had said

You're a cowboy riding o'er the prairie
A cowboy riding there I see
Brave and so tall, for you my heart does fall
Riding o'er the prairie for me

(instrumental)

The western sky was all aglow as the sun was sinking low
Reflecting on a cowgirl in calico so slim
And it was in the month of May when the prairie blooms in sage
That he held her in his arms and then she said to him

You're a cowboy riding o'er the prairie
A cowboy riding there I see
Brave and so tall, for you my heart does fall
Riding o'er the prairie for me
      
Amelia Earhart (Larry W Jones 04/17/2014) (song#6877)

Silver wings across the ocean, silver wings against the sky
Wings beneath Amelia carried her away
On that Lockheed was Fred Noonan on the second of July
Those wings across the ocean disappeared that day

Now, there was no airfield to be seen anywhere, anywhere
The vast Pacific Ocean wasn't being fair
Fred and Amelia were not found anywhere, anywhere
They both were flying on a wing and a prayer

(instrumental)

Amelia Earhart and Fred were searching for an island
But Howland Isle could not be seen for them to save
Silver wings across the ocean, silver wings against the sky
Fred and Amelia went to a deep blue grave

May their sad story live throughout the ages of silver wings
On the many pages of books and silver screens
Amelia and Fred blazed new routes in that Electra plane
But the vast Pacific that day their lives did claim
      
Mournful Moon Of Kentucky (Larry W Jones 04/17/2014) (song#6878)

There shines a mournful moon of Kentucky
On those bluegrass fields down below
My heart pines with that moon of Kentucky
For a blue eyed girl whom I used to know

That blue eyed girl said she would wait for me
Then headed straight for Tennessee
There shines a mournful moon of Kentucky
Mourning now for that blue eyed girl and me

I left those bluegrass fields of Kentucky
Searching all over Tennessee
There shines a mournful moon of Kentucky
Even he can't find her for me

(instrumental)

That blue eyed girl said she would wait for me
Then headed straight for Tennessee
There shines a mournful moon of Kentucky
Mourning now for that blue eyed girl and me

I left those bluegrass fields of Kentucky
Searching all over Tennessee
There shines a mournful moon of Kentucky
Even he can't find her for me
      
Lonesome Vinyl (Larry W Jones 04/20/2014) (song#6879)

I dropped a dime in the jukebox and selected a song
Thinking that I would lose my blues somehow
But the song I chose was about doing somebody wrong
And I suppose it doesn't matter now

Go on and spin you lonesome vinyl, spin
Play the final verse of my broken heart
Go on and spin you lonesome vinyl, spin
Let teardrops begin from the very start

(instrumental)

She told me love was over and parting was over due
Who could have known what she would do to me
Spin that lonesome vinyl while I'm feeling lowly and blue
Something went wrong and now she's going free

Go on and spin you lonesome vinyl, spin
Play the final verse of my broken heart
Go on and spin you lonesome vinyl, spin
Let teardrops begin from the very start
      
Big Dim Hollow (Larry W Jones 04/21/2014) (song#6880)

Well, I'm gonna hide in Big Dim Hollow
And abide where the light of love don't shine
Where that girl who done me wrong won't follow
And where I can ease my sad, weary mind

Well, I'm gonna hop on the next freight train
And then wait for a stop along the track
Right next to the road to Big Dim Hollow
And I might never be a-comin' back

Yeah, I'd rather die in Big Dim Hollow
Than live with a big lie of that girl's kind
Well, I'm gonna hide in Big Dim Hollow
And abide where the light of love don't shine

(instrumental)

Well, I'm gonna hop on the next freight train
And then wait for a stop along the track
Right next to the road to Big Dim Hollow
And I might never be a-comin' back

Yeah, I'd rather die in Big Dim Hollow
Than live with a big lie of that girl's kind
Well, I'm gonna hide in Big Dim Hollow
And abide where the light of love don't shine
      
Goodbye Darlin' Jane (Larry W Jones 04/23/2014) (song#6881)

Goodbye darlin' Jane, you're all packed to go
On that outbound train come the dawn
Now I hear that train, that train whistle blow
In a little while you'll be gone

Now I hear that train, clack, clackety clack
And you're all packed for leavin' on that train
Now I hear that train, comin' down the back
Goodbye darlin' Jane, won't see you again

(instrumental)

Jane, you know well, I treated you alright
And Jane, you know that I'll be blue
Oh, woe is me, oh, woe is me tonight
Jane, you're leavin' a love that's true

Now I hear that train, clack, clackety clack
And you're all packed for leavin' on that train
Now I hear that train, comin' down the back
Goodbye darlin' Jane, won't see you again
      
The Red Rose (Larry W Jones 04/26/2014) (song#6882)

Johnny, her darling, will never return
His romance had seemed like only a blur
For Johnny, her sad heart would ever burn
His memory would stay faithful to her

She remembered the last words he had said
When he whispered he loved her more than life
That he could not wait for them to be wed
And that soon she would become his own wife

How her dreams were flying up in the air
Along with her heart as in a love song
Then Johnny took a red rose from her hair
And went to work, leaving her there alone

(instrumental)

When they found Johnny, they all shed a tear
For he had drowned in the pond at the mill
Dead in the waters so still and so clear
That flowed down to the grain mill from the hill

Johnny's bright eyes would be forever closed
But fixed in his lapel they found still there 
Something that belonged to her they supposed
The red rose he had taken from her hair
      
The Last Whippoorwill (Larry W Jones 04/26/2014) (song#6883)

Autumn is nigh, little darlin'
Please don't cry when I go away
Strings will come loose, little darlin'
That held tight our love many days

My life will no longer travel
All over these mountains and hills
My love dreams will soon unravel
I have heard the last whippoorwill

(instrumental)

Leaves on the trees are now falling
Little darlin', don't cry for me
The last whippoorwill is calling
His last song will soon set me free

We lived and loved, little darlin'
Like blossoms in the Summer rain
But love will not come to harvest
Before the last whippoorwill sings
      
I Cried Some More (Larry W Jones 04/26/2014) (song#6884)

Teardrops fell in the wedding room
As bells rang for the bride and groom
I was watching you from the door
When vows were said I cried some more

I cried some more when I got home
And tried to find why you would roam
I thought of what might be in store
Then bowed my head and cried some more

I read your letters one by one
It took awhile to get them done
I wondered what you wrote them for
Then put them down and cried some more

(instrumental)

My love for you had been denied
And dreams turned blue I could not hide
The future that I pictured shared
Disappeared and you hadn't cared

I searched for reasons why I stay
So in love with you come what may
I couldn't say what's now in store
Just bowed my head and cried some more
      
I'm Gonna Be Her Honey Bee (Larry W Jones 04/27/2014) (song#6885)

Well, she has such beautiful charms
And she's got such wonderful arms
The sweetest thing I've ever seen
She owns a hive full of honey
I'm gonna be her honey bee

Well, her looks are kinda glamoured
And I'm hooked and all enamoured
Up on a cloud for all to see
She owns a hive full of honey
I'm gonna be her honey bee
 
Her Daddy owns a Texas ranch
Her Mama runs a banking branch
They're all as rich as they can be
I'm gonna be her honey bee

(instrumental)

Well, she's the girl that I adore
She doesn't know what is in store
But pretty soon she's gonna see
She owns a hive full of honey
I'm gonna be her honey bee

Well, she has such beautiful charms
And she's got such wonderful arms
The sweetest thing I've ever seen
She owns a hive full of honey
I'm gonna be her honey bee
      
Hills Of Old Kentucky (Larry W Jones 04/27/2014) (song#6886)

A long time ago I left home to roam
From the hills of old Kentucky
I left the sweetest girl in the whole world
In the hills of old Kentucky

Well now, that girl of mine in Kentucky
I hope she's waiting there for me
If I settle down, it will be around
Those same hills of old Kentucky

(instrumental)

She begged me not to go and leave her so
Alone while I was fancy free
As I rambled around, no place I found
Dear as hills of old Kentucky

Well, one day I'll wander back to that shack
And that sweet girl waiting for me
I hope I'm not late for our wedding day
In the hills of old Kentucky
      
Sugar Maple Love (Larry W Jones 04/30/2014) (song#6887)

Oh, I met her in Vermont in the warmth of Summertime
She was all I could ever want at anytime
I vowed that I would love her and forever I'd be true
In Vermont our sugar maple love grew and grew

She's my sugar maple sweetheart, as cute as she can be
Her kiss is sweet as maple sugar is to me
When it's sugar maple syrup time, wedding bells will chime
Music from above's for our sugar maple love

Oh, they'll bring out their fiddles and the country band will play
At the big hoedown for good folks from miles away
I'll be king of the county in a Vermont wedding scene
And she will be my own sugar maple love queen

(instrumental)

She's my sugar maple sweetheart, as cute as she can be
Her kiss is sweet as maple sugar is to me
When it's sugar maple syrup time, wedding bells will chime
Music from above's for our sugar maple love

Oh, they'll bring out their fiddles and the country band will play
At the big hoedown for good folks from miles away
I'll be king of the county in a Vermont wedding scene
And she will be my own sugar maple love queen
      
I'll Wait To Waltz With You Again (Larry W Jones 04/30/2014) (song#6888)

I'll wait to waltz with you again
Just so I can see all your charms
My dreams will all come true by then
Cause you'll be waltzing in my arms

I'll wait to kiss your lips again
With love I've kept here in my heart
Yes, sweetheart, I will wait, and then
Our sweet waltz will nevermore part

I know it broke your heart and mine
That day I spoke, I had to go
But remember love, darling mine
I told you then, I love you so

(instrumental)

I'll wait to waltz with you again
Just like we did one happy night
I'm telling you, my words are true
For I swear by love's guiding light

I'll wait to waltz with you again
Just so I can see all your charms
My dreams will all come true by then
Cause you'll be waltzing in my arms
      
Letters Have No Heart (Larry W Jones 05/05/2014) (song#6889)

Dear, I read your letter that came today
Yes, I read your letter in every part
But when I write back dear, this I must say
You're far away and letters have no heart

Letters have no heart with strong beats to feel
Your signature is with ink that's gone cold
Dear, I need you here to know that you're real
Because letters have no heart of real gold

Letters have no heart and don't understand
That from the start I have needed you charms
Dear, I hold you're letter here in my hand
But all I need is to hold you in my arms

(instrumental)

Letters have no heart and don't understand
That from the start I have needed you charms
Dear, I hold you're letter here in my hand
But all I need is to hold you in my arms

Letters have no heart with strong beats to feel
Your signature is with ink that's gone cold
Dear, I need you here to know that you're real
Because letters have no heart of real gold
      
My Way To Cope (Larry W Jones 05/05/2014) (song#6890)

Dear, I read your letters much too often
It helps me keep alive a fading hope
I know your letters are meant to soften
Our parting and it's just my way to cope

I hold on to love that's gone
For reasons to live I grope
I have lost love that was my own
Letters are my way to cope

My heart aches so much as I read your words
They keep me from making a hanging rope
The line between reality is so blurred
But dear, your letters are my way to cope

(instrumental)

I hold on to love that's gone
For reasons to live I grope
I have lost love that was my own
Letters are my way to cope

My heart aches so much as I read your words
They keep me from making a hanging rope
The line between reality is so blurred
But dear, your letters are my way to cope
      
Lights Of Old San Antone (Larry W Jones 05/06/2014) (song#6891)

When the blue Texas twilight falls
And velvet seems to cover all
On the hill country there is shone
All the lights of old San Antone

Gentle breezes blow cedar trees
And the river sets minds at ease
This cowboy's heart is filled with song
With the lights of old San Antone

The cattle drive is now over
And for now I'm not a rover
A senorita's heart I own
Neath the lights of old San Antone

(instrumental)

The cattle drive is now over
And for now I'm not a rover
A senorita's heart I own
Neath the lights of old San Antone

In San Antonio I will stay
Til cattle again calls me away
But for now I'll be right at home
In the lights of old San Antone
      
Billy Bob Brown (Larry W Jones 05/06/2014) (song#6892)

I was born far from town
The snow was falling down
Daddy said with a frown
His name's Billy Bob Brown

Ride on cowboy, ride on down the trail
Ain't nobody gonna throw your bail
Carry your own load and don't get throwed
Ride on cowboy, ride on down the trail

I rode away from the ranch house scene
Somewhere around the age of thirteen
Got me a job as a wrangler, lord
Ridin' drag behind the herd was hard

(instrumental)

Well, the trail boss made the big money
While the poor wranglers did all the work
Yeah, the trail boss made the big money
While wranglers ridin' drag ate the dirt

Well boys, you have heard my dismal tale
Now pay my words some mind without fail
I'm down and my name's Billy Bob Brown
Ride on cowboy, ride on down the trail
      
I Saw You Go (Larry W Jones 05/07/2014) (song#6893)

Time after time I see the same old scene
Your leaving left me feeling sad and numb
Dear, in my mind you're still the same old dream
I saw you go but will I see you come

At the station when the noon train arrives
Will you then step off among all the hum
I sent a letter, you know I'm alive
I saw you go but will I see you come

My arms are waiting but I still worry
That maybe I'll be looking like a chum
If you're not on that train I'll be sorry
I'll be on the highway riding my thumb

(instrumental)

My arms are waiting but I still worry
That maybe I'll be looking like a chum
If you're not on that train I'll be sorry
I'll be on the highway riding my thumb

Time after time I see the same old scene
Your leaving left me feeling sad and numb
Dear, in my mind, you're still the same old dream
I saw you go but will I see you come

Dear, in my mind, you're still the same old dream
I saw you go but will I see you come
      
Related To The Blues (Larry W Jones 05/07/2014) (song#6894)

I was born in sorrow many years ago
My relations are Mom and Dad, that is true
Though unstated, many tears began to flow
I'm think I must be related to the blues

So many roads I have traveled to their end
Loads that I carried have worn out both my shoes
My dreams unraveled, I knew I couldn't win
I'm think I must be related to the blues

Now, some folks say that I brought it on myself
Well, the paths I have been down I didn't choose
But I put my dreams and heart upon the shelf
I'm think I must be related to the blues

(instrumental)

Mom and Dad told me that nothing would be free
I hold nothing after paying all my dues
My relations are all sad and there are three
I'm think I must be related to the blues

So many roads I have traveled to their end
Loads that I carried have worn out both my shoes
My dreams unraveled, I knew I couldn't win
I'm think I must be related to the blues

My dreams unraveled, I knew I couldn't win
I'm think I must be related to the blues
      
Am I Wasting Your Time (Larry W Jones 05/07/2014) (song#6895)

Do the stars seem to twinkle brighter
Do moon beams become ever lighter
Or darling, am I wasting your time

Does your love grow a little warmer
Do I just know a little charmer
Or darling, am I wasting your time

Can I rely on your words every day, love
Or do you lie every way you may think of
And when I'm tasting your lips, do you feel mine
Or darling, am I wasting your time

(instrumental)

Do you wish I would be a little bolder
When I ask to put your head on my shoulder
Or darling, am I wasting your time

Can I rely on your words every day, love
Or do you lie every way you may think of
And when I'm tasting your lips, do you feel mine
Or darling, am I wasting your time
      
Old Old Ranch House In The Mountains (Larry W Jones 05/07/2014) (song#6896)

There's an old, old ranch house in the mountains
In a canyon that's far from town
Time wrought its toll on a story that's told
Why that ranch house is tumbled down

When leaves begin to fall in the Autumn
And the wind blows so cold you almost freeze
An old, old cowboy almost forgotten
Lives there and hangs his head in memories

Townfolks say he built it for his sweetheart
All furnished for their wedding ball
But the last day of Summer saw her part
The house stood empty in the Fall

(instrumental)

When leaves begin to fall in the Autumn
And the wind blows so cold you almost freeze
An old, old cowboy almost forgotten
Lives there and hangs his head in memories

Townfolks say he built it for his sweetheart
All furnished for their wedding ball
But the last day of Summer saw her part
The house stood empty in the Fall
      
Oak Tree Big Tree (Larry W Jones 05/07/2014) (song#6897)

When I was young I dug in the prairie
And then planted an acorn in the sand
I watched it grow until I grew weary
Why it grew slow I didn't understand

Why that oak tree grew so slow, I don't know
It was still small when I left home to roam
All around the country I had to go
And then one day I wandered on back home

Oak tree, big tree
Reach to the sky
Oak tree, big tree
Limbs spreading wide

When I was young, on the day that I left
The prairie was full of green bales of hay
My song's now sung and my dreams are bereft
My prairie home is so silent today

(instrumental)

There's a white picket fence Daddy's hands built
Broken down around Mom and Daddy's grave
Under my oak tree, waiting there for me
Is a stone with my name that Daddy made

Oak tree, big tree
Reach to the sky
Oak tree, big tree
Limbs spreading wide
A shade for Mom and Daddy and me
      
Cowboys Went To The Big Barn Dance (Larry W Jones 05/07/2014) (song#6898)

Well, some cowboys went to the big barn dance
Where they saw funny sights they'd never seen
Moo cow painted her lips and took a chance
To kiss a brahma bull behind a screen

Now, maybe the funniest thing they saw
Was a wild mustang that started to prance
Then he sang a long song from Arkansas
And hee-hawed like a donkey at the dance

(instrumental)

A chicken with a banjo beat them all
Both feet were tapping for the big barn show
A pig was chomping on an old mango
While a big goat was calling do-si-do

Mother goose was showing her fancy clothes
Donald Duck wasn't wearing underwear
Miss piggie turned up her pink powdered nose
And the big barn dance ended then and there
      
You Look Finer All Over (Larry W Jones 05/07/2014) (song#6899)

Dear, you look finer all over more that any place else
When I'm out places with you
Yes, you look finer all over more that any place else
One liners can't describe you

Dear, you look as fine as fine wine when poured in a glass
Your lips make me know I'm took
Dear, you look finer all over more that any place else
That's exactly how you look

(instrumental)

Dear, you look finer all over more that any place else
I can see it when you're near
Yes, you look finer all over more that any place else
And I wanna make that clear

Well now, I know I'm in big trouble any old time
Words are a babbling brook
Dear, you look finer all over more that any place else
That's exactly how you look

Yes, you look finer all over more that any place else
That's exactly how you look
      
Riding Toward The Mountains West (Larry W Jones 05/07/2014) (song#6700)

This prairie land we'll see no more
Our hard work here has been in vain
Although we know not what's in store
We're riding toward the mountains west

You said you'll always go with me
So please don't turn your thoughts away
Where e're I go just follow me
Because we're riding west, I say

(instrumental)

Years have come and gone since we met
We have worked and now we need our rest
But there are better places yet
We're riding toward the mountains west

You'll go with me to lands we'll love
Our hearts will bound within our chests
Flowers bloom in Spring for our love
We're riding toward the mountains west
