Yesterday I Remembered You Again (Larry W Jones 05/09/2014) (song#6901)

Yesterday I remembered you again
I recalled all the love we had back then
My oh my, my heartache was on the mend
Yesterday I remembered you again

Oh, I was a fool before yesterday
I thought all of my fears had gone away
I should have known that tears would soon begin
Yesterday I remembered you again

(instrumental)

Oh, I was a fool before yesterday
I thought all of my fears had gone away
I should have known that tears would soon begin
Yesterday I remembered you again

My oh my, my heartache was on the mend
Yesterday I remembered you again
Yesterday I remembered you again

From Now On Don't Count Me Gone (Larry W Jones 05/25/2014) (song#6902) My darlin', from now on don't count me gone I've come home dear, to walk the line for you I done you wrong just like in that old song But that old song you'll find has been reviewed Now, my dear, I beg to have your blessing I swear my love will remain ever strong And there won't be anymore transgressing My darlin', from now on don't count me gone (instrumental) That curtain of the past is fully drawn You know that I have loved you all along With heart open wide I'll stand at your side My darlin', from now on don't count me gone Now, my dear, I beg to have your blessing I swear my love will remain ever strong And there won't be anymore transgressing My darlin', from now on don't count me gone Oh darlin', from now on don't count me gone
When The Red Robin Returns To Red River Valley (Larry W Jones 05/25/2014) (song #6903)

When the red robin returns to Red River Valley
Look down the trail and see me then returning to you
Where the river bend turns in the Red River Valley
We'll meet again at the gate of our ranch house for two

Now, adios sweetheart, after one kiss for goodbye
Remember my darling, true love doesn't grieve or sigh
When the red robin returns to Red River Valley
I will return when the big Texas moon is on high

(instrumental)

Now, adios sweetheart, after one kiss for goodbye
Remember my darling, true love doesn't grieve or sigh
When the red robin returns to Red River Valley
I will return when the big Texas moon is on high

When the red robin returns to Red River Valley
I will return when the big Texas moon is on high
        
Rodeo Gals (Larry W Jones 05/26/2014) (song#6904)

In her long Ranch King trailer fast asleep
A rodeo gal dreams of love and weeps
Cowboys she met at the last rodeo
Are on her mind but none of them will know

Ridin' round the barrels keeps dreams alive
The rodeo is her way to survive
When arena floodlights are shining bright
A rodeo gal will win big tonight

Cowboys go to a big old rodeo
To see rodeo gals put on a show
Those girls love cowboys but it's just as true
All rodeo gals love blue ribbons too

(instrumental)

Now, some give it up and go on back home
After thinking that is where they belong
But some love the rodeo through and through
All rodeo gals love blue ribbons too

Cowboys go to a big old rodeo
To see rodeo gals put on a show
Those girls love cowboys but it's just as true
All rodeo gals love blue ribbons too

Those girls love cowboys but it's just as true
All rodeo gals love blue ribbons too
        
Kin To The Wild Wild Wind (Larry W Jones 05/26/2014) (song#6905)

A wind blows wild in the Spring time
Yes, a wind blows wild in the sky
And who knows where the wild wind blows
Kin to the wild wild wind am I

Wild is the wind that blows above
Free is the wind not bound by love

A wind blows wild in the summer
Yes, a wind blows so quickly by
And who knows where the wild wind blows
Kin to the wild wild wind am I

Wild is the wind that blows above
Free is the wind not bound by love

A wind blows wild in the Autumn
Yes, a wind blows when snow flakes fly
And who knows where the wild wind blows
Kin to the wild wild wind am I

Wild is the wind that blows above
Free is the wind not bound by love

A wind blows wild in the Winter
Yes, a wind blows when time to die
And who knows where the wild wind blows
Kin to the wild wild wind am I

Wild is the wind that blows above
Free is the wind without a love
        
Once Upon A Time Long Ago (Larry W Jones 05/26/2014) (song#6906)

Once upon a time long ago
I searched for my fortune and fame
And I lived without love, I know
But after awhile came the rain

I wasn't prepared for weather
That brought such tempest to my heart
And I don't know as to whether
I really lived while in the dark

(instrumental)

I've been told that a sliver line
Is behind every cloud of gray
I had looked but could never find
Why true love never came my way

So I'll just let gray clouds gather
And cover the moon's golden glow
It will be as love that withered
Once upon a time long ago

It will be as love that withered
Once upon a time long ago
        
It Wasn't Her Tradition (Larry W Jones 05/27/2014) (song#6907)

I took my girl to a movie show and paid admission
But she wouldn't kiss me, said it wasn't her tradition
Some folks say just go ahead and don't ask for permission
That ain't how she was bred and it wasn't her tradition

Now, listen to the words I say if you have ambition
To find out if your love life is like mine, in remission
If she turns her head away, you'll then know your condition
There ain't much more to say cause it wasn't her tradition

(instrumental)

If you can't see what's going on, go to an optician
An eye exam will help you see there might be competition
Some other bloke will be the joke for her ammunition 
When his heart's broke he'll know love just wasn't her tradition

I saw my girl the other day, she was in contrition
There was no diamond wedding ring which raised my suspicion
That she was paying now for all her works of sedition
Love don't matter anyhow, it wasn't her tradition

Yeah, she is paying now for all her works of sedition
Love don't matter anyhow, it wasn't her tradition
        
Just A Dance Step And A Teardrop Away (Larry W Jones 05/27/2014) (song#6908)

Just a dance step and a teardrop away

I saw you dance on the floor in the crowd
The guy you danced with was looking so proud
I heard you laugh at the words he would say
Just a dance step and a teardrop away

Just a dance step and a teardrop away
Your glance at me I'll remember always
It told me more than words could ever say
Just a dance step and a teardrop away

(instrumental)

I know my poor heart tomorrow won't mend
In sorrow we could never be just friends
But I'll think of you every step each day
Just a dance step and a teardrop away

Just a dance step and a teardrop away
Your glance at me I'll remember always
It told me more than words could ever say
Just a dance step and a teardrop away

Your glance at me I'll remember always
Just a dance step and a teardrop away
        
Lost Dutchman Lost Sheep And Me (Larry W Jones 05/27/2014) (song#6909)

Now, they say that every heart finds someone
So why hasn't someone found me
Yes, they say that every heart loves someone
So why doesn't someone love me

Now, if you wonder what the most lost thing can be
It's the Lost Dutchman, the lost sheep and me
They say that every lost love is carved on a tree
So why doesn't someone carve one for me

(instrumental)

Now, if you wonder what the most lost thing can be
It's the Lost Dutchman, the lost sheep and me
They say that every lost love is carved on a tree
So why doesn't someone carve one for me

Now, if you wonder what the most lost thing can be
It's the Lost Dutchman, the lost sheep and me
It's the Lost Dutchman, the lost sheep and me
        
Always The Best Man (Larry W Jones 05/30/2014) (song#6910)

One by one old girlfriends are gettin' hitched
One by one I feel like I'm gettin ditched
When wedding bells sound, I've been found to cry
And then another happy says goodbye

Always the best man but never the groom
I'm smiling outside while inside there's gloom
A new invitation, same situation
Always the best man but never the groom

(instrumental)

Oh, I could maybe marry her sister
But so far I'm able to resist her
Cause all my heart I gave to one only
And a new start is not for the lonely

Always the best man but never the groom
I'm smiling outside while inside there's gloom
A new invitation, same situation
Always the best man but never the groom
        
Prairie Flowers On My Grave (Larry W Jones 05/30/2014) (song#6911)

I have ridden trails my lifetime
I have ridden trails all my days
Boys, when my last trail has ended
Plant prairie flowers on my grave

Prairie flowers, little bluestems
Prairie flowers I won't condemn
Come wild wind or rain in showers
Plant prairie flowers on my grave

Boys, don't bother with carnations
Just leave them for the ladies fair
Ride out across the wide prairie
You'll find wild flowers blooming there

Bluestem means you'll share my mem'ry
Petunia stands for friendships sweet
Aster says that you remembered
Prairie flowers go at my feet 

Prairie flowers, little bluestems
Prairie flowers I won't condemn
Come wild wind or rain in showers
Plant prairie flowers on my grave

Let meadowlarks sing their joyful
Songs while the sunshine warms their day
Boys, be always kind and loyal
Prairie flowers for my bouquet

Prairie flowers, little bluestems
Prairie flowers I won't condemn
Come wild wind or rain in showers
Plant prairie flowers on my grave
        
Tears Will Mingle With The Morning Rain (Larry W Jones 06/03/2014) (song#6912)

Yesterday we walked hand in hand together
When love was true and no foul weather came
Now come clouds that say goodbye forever
And tears will mingle with the morning rain

Let me hold you close and kiss you one more time
And feel my arms around you as before
Just lay your head on my shoulder so sublime
Before you leave and to return never more

Yesterday we walked hand in hand together
When love was true and no foul weather came
Now come clouds that say goodbye forever
And tears will mingle with the morning rain

(instrumental)

Flowers need sunshine and so does summer grain
And so it goes for things all meant to be
Now my tears will mingle with the morning rain
As you depart and go away from me

Yesterday we walked hand in hand together
When love was true and no foul weather came
Now come clouds that say goodbye forever
And tears will mingle with the morning rain

Now come clouds that say goodbye forever
And tears will mingle with the morning rain
        
Little Cowboy Pal (Larry W Jones 06/03/2014) (song#6913)

Little cowboy pal (little cowboy pal)
He's a precious little cowboy pal
A miracle and life's never dull
How we love our little cowboy pal

He's growing fast like sunflowers do
Sparkle in his eyes is like the dew
He looks so small in the big corral
He'll grow tall, our little cowboy pal

Little cowboy pal (little cowboy pal)
He's a precious little cowboy pal
A miracle and life's never dull
How we love our little cowboy pal

(instrumental)

You should see the locks upon his head
When he talks I know just what he said
And when I'm on the trail far from home
I think of him and don't feel alone

Little cowboy pal (little cowboy pal)
He's a precious little cowboy pal
A miracle and life's never dull
How we love our little cowboy pal

A miracle and life's never dull
How we love our little cowboy pal
        
My Heart Ain't One For You To Break (Larry W Jones 06/03/2014) (song#6914)

My heart ain't one for you to break
I still can smile for quite awhile
No, I won't make that one mistake
My heart ain't one for you to break

Other hearts died, a shell inside
Now they ain't what they used to be
Your kind of love I just can't take
My heart ain't one for you to break

(instrumental)

All I can say, for goodness sake
For love worthwhile, I'll walk a mile
But not for one that's just a fake
My heart ain't one for you to break

Other hearts died, a shell inside
Now they ain't what they used to be
Your kind of love I just can't take
My heart ain't one for you to break

Your kind of love I just can't take
My heart ain't one for you to break
        
I'm Likewise (Larry W Jones 06/08/2014) (song#6915)

You called and said you're lonely, I'm likewise
Tears you shed were for me only, no lies
You said you can't hide behind some disguise
Well, if your eyes haven't dried, I'm likewise

You said this time you'll listen, I'm likewise
And it's time to renew kissin', and sighs
Well, I've been missin' sunny summer skies
It's funny how I murmur, I'm likewise

(instrumental)

You're make believin' ain't workin', I'm likewise
You've been grievin' is what your voice implies
Well, I've been that way too, I'm feelin' blue
I'm glad to hear you say you're that way too

You've been thinkin' of weddin', I'm likewise
I think that's where we're headin', I'll apprise
Well, I have to admit it's no surprise
There, you've said it, I love you, I'm likewise
        
Low Lane Of Teardrops (Larry W Jones 06/09/2014) (song#6916)

The low lane of teardrops has lead you astray
You pulled out all the stops in being untrue
But I loved you then as I still do today
And I'll follow that lane to get back to you

The low lane of teardrops is dreary I know
Stripes on the edges are all painted dark blue
But here without you dear, I'm feeling so low
And I'll follow that lane to get back to you

(instrumental)

The low lane of teardrops is dreary I know
Stripes on the edges are all painted dark blue
But here without you dear, I'm feeling so low
And I'll follow that lane to get back to you

But here without you dear, I'm feeling so low
And I'll follow that lane to get back to you
The low lane of teardrops is where I will go
        
Dog On A Leash (Larry W Jones 06/11/2014) (song#6917)

I'm a dog on a leash, I'm blue tick blue
I feel like I've been kicked and heeled by you
I'm a dog on a leash, I'm all tied down
I'm the dog you're walkin' all over town

Now, such a doggone life I never knew
Until you threw me a dog bone to chew
Your love was never one to treat me right
I'm a dog on a leash afraid to bite

(instrumental)

I ain't got no strength and I'm growing old
Dear, all you want to do is point and scold
You think all I want to do is go prowl
I'm the dog you're walkin', afraid to growl

Now, such a doggone life I never knew
Until you threw me a dog bone to chew
Your love was never one to treat me right
I'm a dog on a leash afraid to bite
        
Someplace Down In Texas (Larry W Jones 06/11/2014) (song#6918)

That interstate drove my fate for ramblin'
So I chased dreams here, there and everywhere
But when I slept, mem'ries kept me scramblin'
My state was where I didn't have a prayer

Tonight someplace down in Texas
They'll embrace a good Bob Wills tune
And soon someplace down in Texas
I'll be back home this coming June

(instrumental)

I rambled many miles on those highways
Searching for a rainbow without an end
I didn't see it was Texas byways
That would lead me home like a long lost friend

Tonight someplace down in Texas
They'll embrace a good Bob Wills tune
And soon someplace down in Texas
I'll be back home this coming June

And soon someplace down in Texas
I'll be back home this coming June
        
Apple Of My Eye (Larry W Jones 06/11/2014) (song#6919)

Texas moon rising over prairie sky
Lead me back to the apple of my eye
I won't go drivin' cattle down the trail
And no more will she wear a lonely veil

At the chimney she lights a nightly fire
In our cabin she lights my one desire
Sometimes I wonder why it wasn't smart
To ride this trail drive with a lonely heart

(instrumental)

At the chimney she lights a nightly fire
In our cabin she lights my one desire
Sometimes I wonder why it wasn't smart
To ride this trail drive with a lonely heart

Texas moon rising over prairie sky
Lead me back to the apple of my eye

Lead me back to the apple of my eye
        
Our Wedding Melody (Larry W Jones 06/12/2014) (song#6920)

Oh my darling, my only one you now will be
All dressed in white, oh what a sight you are to see 
My true love I promise for all eternity
Let music begin for our wedding melody

My love for you darling will grow as years go by
Rejecting all others until my death is nigh

My true love I promise for all eternity
Let music begin for our wedding melody

(instrumental)

Oh my darling, my only one you now will be
Here in my arms as in my heart eternally
Never more to roam, home sweet home is destiny
Let music begin for our wedding melody

Never more to roam, home sweet home is destiny
Let music begin for our wedding melody
Let music begin for our wedding melody
        
What Happened To The Jukebox (Larry W Jones 06/14/2014) (song#6921)

One night I was feelin' blue and didn't know what to do
So I jumped in my old pickup truck and flew out of town
Down at the county line road I knew what good things there flowed
Cause that small honky tonk used to be my old stompin' ground

Well, I got there with time to spare but it wasn't the same
I didn't hear no country music from the hall of fame
The place looked kinda dead and the black-suited doorman said
Sorry but you have to be a member in good acclaim

So I said, what happened to the jukebox
That used to stand in the corner
And who replaced the double swingin' doors
That let in all the old mourners

And who put up all these incandescent lights
Dim neon used to barely light the nights
What you have done in here won't right the wrongs
What happened to the jukebox country songs

(instrumental)

I looked across the room where the neon jukebox once boomed
And there sat a six piece band looking so perfectly groomed
I wasn't mistaken, my old stompin' ground was taken
By an uptown crowd that meant my old honky tonk was doomed

So I said, what happened to the jukebox
That used to stand in the corner
And who replaced the double swingin' doors
That let in all the old mourners

And who put up all these incandescent lights
Dim neon used to barely light the nights
What you have done in here won't right the wrongs
What happened to the jukebox country songs
        
Pages And Pages Ago (Larry W Jones 06/15/2014) (song#6922)

Ages and ages ago, it was
That our story of lost love began
The first chapter doesn't give the cause
That was pages and pages ago

Somewhere in the middle it was read
Don't recall how it came to be so
I wish I could tear that page to shreds
That was pages and pages ago

Our book of love is finished and closed
And no more will it blossom and grow
I remember when it was composed
That was pages and pages ago

(instrumental)

Somewhere in the middle it was read
Don't recall how it came to be so
I wish I could tear that page to shreds
That was pages and pages ago

Our book of love is finished and closed
And no more will it blossom and grow
I remember when it was composed
That was pages and pages ago
        
Along The Old Pawnee Trail (Larry W Jones 06/16/.2014) (song#6923)

Columbines color the way
As sunshine warms up the day
Along the old Pawnee Trail

High above the timberline
Alpine lakes glisten and shine
Along the old Pawnee Trail

I hear you as if near you
Oh, may my song endear you
Along the old Pawnee Trail

(instrumental)

High above the timberline
Alpine lakes glisten and shine
Along the old Pawnee Trail

I hear you as if near you
Oh, may my song endear you
Along the old Pawnee Trail

Along the old Pawnee Trail
        
Am I Glad (Larry W Jones 06/16/2014) (song#6924)

Am I glad, yes I'm glad
This day's the best I've had
Nobody has ever felt as good as this lad
Am I glad, yes I'm glad

This morning your phone call
Made me dance in the hall
You said that you'd come home
No longer would you roam

Am I glad, yes I'm glad
So happy I might add
This news is all so good and none of it is bad
Am I glad, yes I'm glad

(instrumental)

I heard you say you're sorry
Now darling don't you worry
Dear, I'm so glad you had a change of heart and mind
And I'm glad you're still mine

Am I glad, yes I'm glad
This day's the best I've had
Nobody has ever felt as good as this lad
Am I glad, yes I'm glad
        
Watch That Train A-Rolling (Larry W Jones 06/24/2014) (song#6925)

Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
Well, my darlin's on it, my heart won't ever mend

My darlin' left this mornin', said she'd taken enough
My darlin' left this mornin', said she'd taken enough
I said she'd be sorry, she didn't take my bluff

Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
Well, my darlin's on it, my heart won't ever mend

Mister engineer, slow your locomotive down
Mister engineer, slow your locomotive down
If she keeps goin', this will be a lonesome town

Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
Well, my darlin's on it, my heart won't ever mend
 
Yeah, my darlin's on it, my heart won't ever mend
        
Pine Tree Growing Tall (Larry W Jones 06/29/2014) (song#6926)

There's a pine tree growing tall that in childhood I recall
It grew straight and strong and I knew it wouldn't die or fall
When hurricane winds blew, it just bent but stood there and grew
And when the storm winds were through, it was still strong through and through

Lord, let my faith grow as tall as that pine tree I recall
Yes, and let it be as strong as a wall
Help me live my life as a good man and without much strife
Just give me enough strength that I don't fall

(instrumental)

There are some troubles in this world that makes a man's hair curl
But I've got a friend who's worth more than fine diamonds or pearls
And I vowed to follow his footsteps and answer his call
That's why I remember in mind that pine tree growing tall

Lord, let my faith grow as tall as that pine tree I recall
Yes, and let it be as strong as a wall
Help me live my life as a good man and without much strife
Just give me enough strength that I don't fall

Just give me enough strength that I don't fall
        
Return My Heart (Larry W Jones 07/01/2014) (song#6927)

Return my heart, our love is done
I gave it you but not for fun
Return my heart, then say goodbye
Before the start of endless cries

I'll still love you, that is certain
But I see the final curtain
There is no life when we're apart
Let's end this strife, give back my heart

(instrumental)

Return my heart, our love is done
I gave it you but not for fun
Return my heart, then say goodbye
Before the start of endless cries

I'll still love you, that is certain
But I see the final curtain
There is no life when we're apart
Let's end this strife, give back my heart
        
Another Bridge That Just Won't Burn (Larry W Jones 07/11/2014) (song#6928)

When you left I said goodbye to a love I'd lost
I told myself that my poor heart could bear the cost
But just to show how the world of long lost love turns
Now I know you're another bridge that just won't burn

I lit the fire and then decided to move on
But my desire for our old love is much too strong
When you left you built a bridge with no real concern
But I know you're another bridge that just won't burn

(instrumental)

Nobody should love someone who made him so blue
That's what I told myself while thinking it was true
Oh, but I find myself hoping for your return 
Now I know you're another bridge that just won't burn
 
I lit the fire and then decided to move on
But my desire for our old love is much too strong
When you left you built a bridge with no real concern
But I know you're another bridge that just won't burn
        
All Of My Good Times (Larry W Jones 07/12/2014) (song#6929)

All of my good times will soon be done
All of the love I thought I had won
All of my good times will soon be done
Cause I'm no longer her number one

I never pushed and I never shoved
Nobody else ever placed above
But now I mourn because I've been scorned
Sometimes I wonder why I've been born

All of my good times will soon be done
All of the love I thought I had won
All of my good times will soon be done
Cause I'm no longer her number one

(instrumental)

Once raised on the poor side of the track
I won a queen with a diamond Jack
But I lost love's game and the whole deck
Life ain't the same when it's all a wreck

All of my good times will soon be done
All of the love I thought I had won
All of my good times will soon be done
Cause I'm no longer her number one

All of my good times will soon be done
All of the love I thought I had won
        
You Are My Starlight (Larry W Jones 07/12/2014) (song#6930)

Deep in the night time, sweet wedding bells chime
They sound so pretty when ringing gayly
Vows are exchanged dear, as if you were near
Please don't awaken me from dreams of cheer

You are my starlight, my guiding starlight
You are the moonbeams in my eyes
Every night my dear, I hold you so near
But only in my dreams until sunrise

(instrumental)

You said you'd love me, good or bad weather
And dear, I told you I would do the same
But then you told me you love another
And he would be the one to change your name

You are my starlight, my guiding starlight
You are the moonbeams in my eyes
Every night my dear, I hold you so near
But only in my dreams until sunrise

You are my starlight, my guiding starlight
But only in my dreams until sunrise
        
Texas Man (Larry W Jones 07/13/2014) (song#6931)

Well, I'm ridin' down to the Red River
And the great state of Texas I'll soon see
Yeah, I'm ridin' down to the Red River
A Texas town is waitin' there for me

Well. I've spent my days as a lone rider
In all of my ways a travelin' man
I thought horizons had to be wider
But I guess I just didn't understand

(instrumental)

Now, I ain't got no family
Cause my Ma and Pa are long gone
Died when I was in Laramie
No brothers or sisters I've known

I'm gonna hang up my spurs and saddle
Then I'll settle down as best as I can
Turn my horse to pasture with no bridle
Spend the rest of life as a Texas man
        
What Fort Worth Is Worth (Larry W Jones 07/14/2014) (song#6932)

There's no place on earth like Fort Worth
It's known in Texas as Cow Town
Somebody asked what is it worth
I told him it's where I bed down

There's no place on earth like Fort Worth
Longhorn cattle fill the stockyards
And it is the town of my birth
Fort Worth has my highest regards

If you're lookin' for good cookin'
Fort Worth has the best Texas beef
And there they sing that Texas swing
Bob Wills is still the swing band chief

(instrumental)

There's no place on earth like Fort Worth
Longhorn cattle fill the stockyards
And it is the town of my birth
Fort Worth has my highest regards

If you're daring, don"t be sparing
What Fort Worth is worth is your all
And you can bet you won't regret
Cause in Fort Worth you'll have a ball

There's no place on earth like Fort Worth
Longhorn cattle fill the stockyards
And it is the town of my birth
Fort Worth has my highest regards
        
I Love You So Much (Larry W Jones 07/15/2014) (song#6933)

My love for you is for your understanding
Of the little things that I forget to do
And I love you dear for your not demanding
More than I can give to make your dreams come true

Oh, I know the world doesn't care about me
But dear, I can bare it all because of you
My love for you is such to never doubt me
I love you so much because you love me too

(instrumental)

My love for you makes my world ever brighter
And I never question words that you confide
The daily load I carry, you make lighter
No wonder my heart for you is open wide

Oh, I know the world doesn't care about me
But dear, I can bare it all because of you
My love for you is such to never doubt me
I love you so much because you love me too
        
I'll Forgive You When I Learn To Forget (Larry W Jones 07/15/2014) (song#6934)

One fine day I'll forgive you my darling
But that fine day has not arrived just yet
Time passes by so slow but this I know
I'll forgive you when I learn to forget

Where ever you are I hope you do well
As for me, I try not to cry and fret
I don't know when but I can surely tell
I'll forgive you when I learn to forget

(instrumental)

It made me so sad to see our parting
But I'm so glad about the day we met
 But darling, if I can beg your pardon
I'll forgive you when I learn to forget

My dear, you have gone and found another
That was the day when my sun fully set
I remember when true love was smothered
I'll forgive you when I learn to forget
        
I Never Change When Seasons Do (Larry W Jones 07/15/2014) (song#6935)

In springtime you found me 'mong the flowers
My love for you was warm as summer sun
And by Autumn, as the leaves were changing
My love for you was as if just begun

Unlike weather, I'm the same each season
Spring, Summer and in cold of Winter too
And your love for me is the best reason
Just why I never change when seasons do

(instrumental)

When new Spring arrives I'm never sorry
Each Summer brings me golden memories
And when Autumn comes I never worry
Deep in Winter it's your sweet love I see

Unlike weather, I'm the same each season
Spring, Summer and in cold of Winter too
And your love for me is the best reason
Just why I never change when seasons do
        
Only An Amigo (Larry W Jones 07/18/2014) (song#6936)

The postman left some letters then walked on by
One postmarked from Arizona caught my eye
It was from my friend, I opened it real slow
The first words were penned, only an amigo

Only an amigo, Jose was his name
Only an amigo, today I'm in pain
He was my true friend, that I want you to know
Right up until the end, Jose Perigo

(instrumental)

The postmark was Nogales, near Santa Cruz
It was his last letter, for he'd paid life's dues
Only an amigo, a true friend to me
Jose Perigo, no more my friend I'll see
 
Only an amigo, Jose was his name
Only an amigo, today I'm in pain
He was my true friend, that I want you to know
Right up until the end, Jose Perigo

Only an amigo, Jose was his name
        
Where Worried Minds Aren't Known (Larry W Jones 07/18/2014) (song#6937)

Now, hear that whistle moan and hear those big wheels groan
Gonna board her and go where worried minds aren't known

I've traveled round this country, North, South, Tennessee
Somewhere down in Dixie, cotton fields callin' me

I've been to New York City and old Mexico
But folks down in Dixie are only friends I know

(instrumental)

Now, hear that whistle moan and hear those big wheels groan
Gonna board her and go where worried minds aren't known

Listen to my story and you'll know where I'm bound
Look way down in Dixieland and there I'll be found

Now, hear that whistle moan and hear those big wheels groan
Gonna board her and go where worried minds aren't known
        
Your Acting High And mighty Makes Me Low And Blue (Larry W Jones 07/18/2014) (song#6938)

Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue
Oh, I know you must be thinking only of you
Dear, I've been trying to keep myself from crying
Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue

You don't even miss me, no I don't think you do
You dismiss every loving thing I do for you
You said that you'd return but this one thing is true
Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue

(instrumental)

Dear, I'm feeling weary and somewhat low and blue
At one time I was cheery when true love I knew
Now, please don't get me wrong for this is just a song
Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue

You don't even miss me, no I don't think you do
You dismiss every loving thing I do for you
You said that you'd return but this one thing is true
Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue
        
No One Can Ever Tell (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6939)

No one can ever tell that I feel lonely
Though it's only been ten years not doing well
I cry at night but morning light try laughing
I miss you still but no one can ever tell

I tell them all we didn't leave each other
We just were not under true love's binding spell
I make believe there never came bad weather
And yes, I'm sure that no one can ever tell

(instrumental)

No one can ever tell how much I miss you
Each time that old mem'ry rings just like a bell
No one can ever tell how oft I kiss you
In my dreams while in my arms where you still dwell

I tell them all we didn't leave each other
We just were not under true love's binding spell
I make believe there never came bad weather
And yes, I'm sure that no one can ever tell
        
No Letter From Home (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6940)

No letter from home, no letter from home
No letter from back home came today

If I could read just one simple line
From mother's hand I would feel so fine
Or something my daddy had to say
No letter from back home came today

(instrumental)

No letter from home, no letter from home
No letter from back home came today

If only I knew the latest news
It might rid me of these lonesome blues
There's been no cheer for many a year
No letter from ones I hold so dear

(instrumental)

No letter from home, no letter from home
No letter from back home came today

The last I heard, they were doing well
But with no word, who can really tell
I'm leaving soon, I'll be on my way
This grieving has my hair turning grey

No letter from home, no letter from home
No letter from back home came today
        
When Our Senior Moment Comes Around (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6941)

When our senior moment comes around
We will wonder what just came unwound
We won't have much to say anyway
When our senior moment comes around

When her senior moment comes around
Grandma will act like a sniffing hound
Her teeth she won't find but she won't mind
When her senior moment comes around

(instrumental)

Grandpa will complain, can't find his cane
He won't know it's outside in the rain
He'll be past sixty down in Dixie 
When his senior moment comes around

Wheelchairs will be the rage on that day
Folks will all show their age, as they say
Hair grown from their ears won't bring much cheer
When their senior moment comes around

(instrumental)

Cosmetic stores will all close their doors
And medics will come by threes and fours
They'll ask how we are, then au revoir
When our senior moment comes around
 
Time will turn our good world upside down
We will seldom smile and always frown
It's regretful, we'll be forgetful
When our senior moment comes around
        
Old Timey Sunshiny Melody (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6942)

I wanna play it once more just like I did before
When that old Victrola sounded out in harmony
With an old timey sunshiny melody

With the falling years I recall falling on my ears
Those happy times, big and small, that I can only see
With an old timey sunshiny melody

I wanna play it once more just like I did before
When that old Victrola sounded out in harmony
With an old timey sunshiny melody

(instrumental)

I've got to get back to that little piney woods shack
Where my mind and my heart won't be bothered but feel free
With an old timey sunshiny melody

I wanna play it once more just like I did before
When that old Victrola sounded out in harmony
With an old timey sunshiny melody
        
Jole Blon (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6943)

Jole Blon, bayou garland
Darling flow'r of Louisan
I adore you and I emplore you
Let me be your Louisiana man

In the twilight's dim shadows
I wait for my only one
I miss you but then I will kiss you
When you come to my arms, Jole Blon

(instrumental)

Jole Blon, bayou sweetheart
Pretty blonde, my heart you've won
I'm waiting, don't be hesitating
Your rating's number one, Jole Blon

While the moon shines in glory
Let's stay awhile, please don't run
In Louisan they'll tell the story
Of delta bayou love, Jole Blon
        
Santa Fe Super Chief anta Fe Super Chief (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6944)

Let me tell the tale of one famous train
Her legend is almost beyond belief
She rolled out from Chicago, shine or rain
Blazing rails, the Santa Fe Super Chief

From Chicago to California sun
The Santa Fe Super Chief was on time
Hollywood celebrities rode for fun
With caviar and drinking finest wine

(instrumental)

When you rode her, you'd hear that diesel whine
A hundred miles an hour made the trip brief
Sleeping in the pullman, rocking divine
Sweet time on the Santa Fe Super Chief

Now I've told the tale of one famous train
Her legend is almost beyond belief
She rolled out from Chicago, shine or rain
Blazing rails, the Santa Fe Super Chief
        
Tavern Of The Setting Sun (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6945)

There's a bar in Dallas named Tavern of the Setting Sun
Known as a cavern for lost men and oh, I know I'm one
Don't tell my relations of the ruin that whiskey has done
It's the foundations of the Tavern of the Setting Sun

(instrumental)

Play the old jukebox and watch the records go round and round
Dring til clocks on the walls say it's alright to feel low down
The Tavern of the Setting Sun is way outside of town
It's a place of fame and it's name is one of some reknown

(instrumental)

There's a bar in Dallas named Tavern of the Setting Sun
Known as a cavern for lost men and oh, I know I'm one
Don't tell my relations of the ruin that whiskey has done
It's the foundations of the Tavern of the Setting Sun

Don't tell my relations of the ruin that whiskey has done
It's the foundations of the Tavern of the Setting Sun
        
Wabash Cannonball (Larry W Jones 07/20/2014) (song#6946)

She rolls as fast as a cannonball
On rails of steel she's a pretty sight
Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
As she rolls on through a summer night

Two long steel rails and a million crossties hear her mighty call
Gents, ladies and express mail flies on the Wabash Cannonball

(instrumental)

She rolls as fast as a cannonball
On rails of steel she's a pretty sight
Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
As she rolls on through a summer night

The hand of the engineer has the throttle full to the wall
There's no fear as he rounds the curve on the Wabash Cannonball

Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
Coming from the Wabash Cannonball
        
Tennessee Lane (Larry W Jones 07/20/2014) (song#6947)

Just like Shangri-la, Tennessee
Appalachia, Smoky Mountains
Living is peaceful, valleys so serene
Cool rivers flow through places seldom seen

Tennessee Lane, my thoughts remain
All along your winding roadways
Tennessee Lane, I'll walk again
When I return to you one day

(instrumental)

My thoughts return to remind me
How far away from home I've roamed
Now I'll put some miles behind me
Til Tennessee once more is home

Tennessee Lane, my thoughts remain
All along your winding roadways
Tennessee Lane, I'll walk again
When I return to you one day

(instrumental)

I recall my times of childhood
Before I left and ran away
I would bring them back if I could
All those good times of yesterday

Tennessee Lane, my thoughts remain
All along your winding roadways
Tennessee Lane, I'll walk again
When I return to you one day
        
Honky Tonk Swing (Larry W Jones 07/20/2014) (song#6948)

I was stepping with my sweetheart to the honky tonk swing
When an old pard swung by and said howdy
I let him cut in and I saw them laughing while dancing
My old pard swung my girl's heart far from me

I recall the scene and the honky tonk swing
It beat everything that I had ever seen
I let him cut in and I saw them laughing while dancing
My old pard swung my girl's heart far from me

(instrumental)

I was stepping with my sweetheart to the honky tonk swing
When an old pard swung by and said howdy
I let him cut in and I saw them laughing while dancing
My old pard swung my girl's heart far from me

I let him cut in and I saw them laughing while dancing
My old pard swung my girl's heart far from me
While they were stepping to the honky tonk swing
        
Remove These Shackles (Larry W Jones 07/21/2014) (song#6949)

Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live
The way it was when words were kind and love was key
I've lost confidence in you and I feel so blue
Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live

Remove these sharp pains from my heart so I can feel
All that remains of love that once was truly mine
I gave you my time but you had no love to give
Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live

(instrumental)

Just give my mind a little time for ease
Dear, please don't bind my thoughts eternally
When you're no longer here, this pain will disappear 
Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live

Remove these sharp pains from my heart so I can feel
All that remains of love that once was truly mine
I gave you my time but you had no love to give
Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live
        
Bonus Day Tomorrow (Larry W Jones 07/21/2014) (song#6950)

Gonna buy a new western suit, shine my cowboy boots
Gonna go down to the station, hear that train horn hoot
Nobody's gonna stop me and right on time I'll be
Bonus day tomorrow, my darlin' I'm gonna see

She wrote in her letter that she'll soon be on her way
Well doggone, she better or her mail I'll throw away
Gonna practice on my grin for when her train rolls in
Bonus day tomorrow, can't wait for it to begin

(instrumental)

She wrote in her letter that she'll soon be on her way
Well doggone, she better or her mail I'll throw away
Gonna practice on my grin for when her train rolls in
Bonus day tomorrow, can't wait for it to begin

Gonna buy a new western suit, shine my cowboy boots
Gonna go down to the station, hear that train horn hoot
Bonus day, bonus day
Bonus day tomorrow, my darlin' I'm gonna see
        
Today Is The Yesterday Of Tomorrow (Larry W Jones 07/21/2014) (song#6951)

Today is the yesterday of tomorrow
Tomorrow never comes and yesterday is gone
You promised me that you'd be mine tomorrow
Today's the same as yesterday when love's withdrawn

Today is the yesterday of tomorrow
And yesterday's sorrow was all my future saw
You said our future would be bright tomorrow
Today I recall yesterday was full of flaws

(instrumental)

Years past yesterday my eyes were full of tears
I hoped that tomorrow would bring love to my side
But today I know tomorrow won't bring cheer
Just like yesterday when you said you'd be my bride

Today is the yesterday of tomorrow
Tomorrow never comes and yesterday is gone
You promised me that you'd be mine tomorrow
Today's the same as yesterday when love's withdrawn
        
Cowboy Bob (Larry W Jones 07/21/2014) (song#6952)

Cowboy Bob was a wrangler at a ranch in old Cheyenne
Said he'd never marry, he liked being a single man
Then one day he swung the doors of the  Bad Outlaw Saloon
He hit the floor when a painted lady there made him swoon

He said, pour me a side of jerky and slice of rye straight
You're the prettiest Can-Can girl that I can surely rate
Fry huevos rancheros rare, over easy on my steak
Gonna spend my pay on you, every dollar that I make

(instrumental)

The Can-Can lady looked at Bob and she forgot a lot
She said, I'll bring cool sasparilla, hope you like it hot
I'll pour you a side of jerky, slice your rye whiskey straight
Huevos rancheros I'll serve rare along with easy steak

Well, the story must be told, Cowboy Bob done broke his mold
He took that lady by the arm and out the door they strolled
They climbed up on Bob's old buckboard and headed out of town
Somebody said that Cowboy Bob's will had just broken down

He said, pour me a side of jerky and slice of rye straight
You're the prettiest Can-Can girl that I can surely rate
Cowboy Bob was a wrangler at a ranch in old Cheyenne
Said he'd never marry, he liked being a single man
        
Before The Day I Found You (Larry W Jones 07/22/201450 (song#6953)

Written on pages of the ages this day will be viewed
As the day I found you, as the day I found you, yes you
But my heart will testify that you have been in my eye
Cause I've waited for this day before the day I found you

Before the day I found you, I knew, oh, how well I knew
You would be my dream come true before the day I found you
Before you walked in my life, before you became my wife
Dear, I've waited for this day before the day I found you

(instrumental)

Before the day I found you, I knew, oh, how well I knew
You would be my dream come true before the day I found you
Before you walked in my life, before you became my wife
Dear, I've waited for this day before the day I found you
 
But my heart will testify that you have been in my eye
Cause I've waited for this day before the day I found you
Dear, I've waited for this day before the day I found you
Before the day I found you
        
New Fool Like An Old Fool (Larry W Jones 07/22/2014) (song#6954)

The first time you left me I nearly cried
The second time was when I nearly died
A man in love can stand some grief and pain
New fools and old fools are all just the same

There's a new fool like an old fool
I've told myself a hundred times
There's a new fool like an old fool
The diff'rence is only nickles and dimes

(instrumental)

Darling, you called and said you were sorry
And that I shouldn't worry any more
I fall for that same old line every time
Old fools and new fools open up the door

There's a new fool like an old fool
I've told myself a hundred times
There's a new fool like an old fool
The diff'rence is only nickles and dimes
        
Cowboy Coloring Book (Larry W Jones 07/23/2014) (song#6955)

My little buckaroo is my pardner through and through
So I bought him a cowboy coloring book one day
He spends lots of time trying to stay within the lines
His favorite color is blue since she died that day

I smiled when I first looked at his new coloring book
At first the colors seemed to be all mixed up and wrong 
Then I realized as tears were falling from my eyes
My little buckaroo had colored his Mommy gone

(instrumental)

He colored the cowboy blue with saddened, tear-filled eyes
He shaded the big old barn with black lines he had drawn
And he colored the moon in a shade of darkest gloom
My little buckaroo had colored his Mommy gone

I smiled when I first looked at his new coloring book
At first the colors seemed to be all mixed up and wrong 
Then I realized as tears were falling from my eyes
My little buckaroo had colored his Mommy gone
        
Best Is Yet To Come (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6956)

It's such a short time since you came my way
I know where this much joy is coming from
I shout Oh Boy at the start of each day
And dear, I know the best is yet to come

There's nothing so fine that I've ever seen
Than someone I now call my number one
The way your eyes shine when looking at me
Says dear, I know the best is yet to come

(instrumental)

Here comes endless days of love and gladness
My fav'rite pie is made of sugar plumb
Until I die there will be no sadness
Cause dear, I know the best is yet to come

There's nothing so fine that I've ever seen
Than someone I now call my number one
The way your eyes shine when looking at me
Says dear, I know the best is yet to come

Yes dear, I know the best is yet to come
The best is yet to come
        
All Bull No Matador (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6957)

Lookit that greenhorn out on the dance floor
Got a stetson on, I ain't sure what for
Talkin' Tex but it sounds more like senor
Well pardner, he's all bull, no matador

He needs to pack up and go
He's a cowboy made for show
New boots, hat, and nothing more
He's all bull, no matador

(instrumental)
 
Now, lookit him smooth-talkin' to 'em all
Worst of all is his awful Texas drawl
If Y'all don't mind, I'll just tell him 'fore long
Take your blood red cape and head on for home

He needs to pack up and go
He's a cowboy made for show
New boots, hat, and nothing more
He's all bull, no matador
        
Good Way Of Saying Hello (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6958)

Hello, I think I love you M'am
This cowboy just wants you to know
Life would be kind if you were mine
It's a good way of saying hello

There's no better way that I've heard
To get on with a cowboy show
Than to say it's you I've preferred
It's a good way of saying hello
 
(instrumental)

I took to you and don't regret
Saying that my true love will grow
This is a good day, now we've met
It's a good way of saying hello

There's no better way that I've heard
To get on with a cowboy show
Than to say it's you I've preferred
It's a good way of saying hello

There's no better way that I've heard
It's a good way of saying hello
        
Is It Right To Test Your Love (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6959)

Is it right to say how I feel
That no other is up above
I'll head west if the feel ain't real
Now, is it right to test your love

Is it OK, the words I say
It's honey your lips are made of
I rest my case right here today
Now, is it right to test your love

(instrumental)
 
Will it cause a skip of your heart
If I said you're my lovey dove
Will soft moonlight make our love start
Dear, is it right to test your love

Is it OK, the words I say
It's honey your lips are made of
I rest my case right here today
Now, is it right to test your love

Oh, is it right to test your love
        
Speaking My Mind (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6960)

Excuse me sir, I didn't mean
To speak those words not well designed
I was talking to someone unseen
While I was just speaking my mind

Now, in my mind I did no wrong
At least nothing that I can find
I said come back where you belong
While I was just speaking my mind

(instrumental)

In my mind I whisper her name
And every time it sounds so fine
I told myself that I'm not to blame
While I was just speaking my mind

Well sir, guess I'll be on my way
I guess I must have been stone blind
There's nothing aloud I have to say
I'm in a cloud speaking my mind
        
Rustic Side Of Country (Larry W Jones 07/29/2014) (song#6961)

Keep your high rises and shopping centers
I don't need signs that say do not enter
Now, I don't mean to say something drastic
Just give me some place that's kinda rustic

Oh, give me the rustic side of country
Rustic side of country, rustic country
Nothing plastic, a life that's realistic
Just give me the rustic side of country

(instrumental)

I'm quite fond of a catfish fishing pond
Where I'll wet a hook and sing Jole Blon
I'll catch a fish with my hook and sinker
And no ticket for my inop blinker

I was born in the Texas piney woods
Learned how to live rustic and it was good
Not much money, I learned to live humbly
Oh, give me the rustic side of country

(instrumental)

Oh, give me the rustic side of country
Rustic side of country, rustic country
Nothing plastic, a life that's realistic
Just give me the rustic side of country
        
Boots On Our Feet (Larry W Jones 07/30/2014) (song#6962)

Pa was a cowboy whose face was leathered
Did his best with grace in any weather
His ranch made a living in cold or heat
Kept bread on the table, boots on our feet

We sat for a meal and gave thanks to God
For veal we ate and for the horses shod
Levis had patches on the knees and seat
Ma sewed patches, Pa put boots on our feet

(instrumental)

We rounded up cattle and cleaned the barn
Ranch work was hard from the day we were born
After work was done, Pa's fiddle was sweet
With cakes on the griddle, boots on our feet

We sat for a meal and gave thanks to God
For veal we ate and for the horses shod
Levis had patches on the knees and seat
Ma sewed patches, Pa put boots on our feet

(instrumental)

Now I own the ranch and run it the same
Cause I'm a branch cut from my Daddy's name
My fam'ly of cowboys is now complete
There's bread on the table, boots on our feet

When you sit for a meal, give thanks to God
For veal you eat and for your horses shod
If Levis have patches on knees and seat
Thank Ma for patches, Pa for boots on your feet
        
Everlasting Is The Last Time (Larry W Jones 08/01/2014) (song #6963)

My darling, I knew from the moment when we met and touched
There would be no postponement to say I love you so much
But dear, I'm not one whose heart can be so easily won
So I'll tell you how it happened and let you be the judge

I give you my word, everything is true that you have heard
And when you look in my eyes you will find no disguise 
I've loved you a long time but a long time just will not do
Everlasting is the last time I'll be in love with you

(instrumental)

My darling, when there's wrinkles on my face and gone is grace
And with only a smile, remember the times we've embraced
I will then recall that day when I promised you my all
And when the day is through I will whisper these words to you

I give you my word, everything is true that you have heard
And when you look in my eyes you will find no disguise 
I've loved you a long time but a long time just will not do
Everlasting is the last time I'll be in love with you

I've loved you a long time but a long time just will not do
Everlasting is the last time I'll be in love with you
        
Rotten Cotton (Larry W Jones 08/05/2014) (song#6964)

In Louisian around New Orleans we ran a farm when times were lean
When hurricanes blew it could get real bad
With calloused hands from cotton hoes we tilled the hot sand in long straight rows
I recall the pain when I was a lad

The years went by and later on I learned to save at the local pawn
A dirt poor man learns how to make ends meet
Our house wasn't more than a shack on the wrong side of the railroad track
Windows were kept open beacuse of heat

(instrumental)  

We made our living with rotten cotton, boll weevils aren't forgotten
In those sand hills of Cajun Louisian
We made our living with rotten cotton, boll weevils aren't forgotten
Cajun people try as best as they can

Every weekday morning at roll call we rolled out and put on overalls
Just before the hot sun began to rise
Hurricanes came with little warning and they brought a lot of mourning
I recall tears falling from Mama's eyes

We made our living with rotten cotton
We made our living with rotten cotton
We made our living with rotten cotton in Louisian
        
There Was A Time (Larry W Jones 08/05/2014) (song#6965)

There was a time when every cowboy born
Lived in a ranch house and not in a barn
There was a time when each rancher around
Helped their poor neighbor get up off the ground
There was a time

When a cowboy was just too old to ride
But all the young un's looked at him with pride
There was a time
When the branding came in the early Spring
And it was outstanding what hands would bring
There was a time

(instrumental)

There was a time when grandma and grandpa
Knew all their grandkids would obey the law
There was a time
When the biggest thing was the big barn dance
And good western swing led to sweet romance
There was a time

When longhorns drank deep from a flowing stream
And we thanked God for knowing how to dream
There was a time
When our future was looking bright ahead
And at night there was nothing there to dread
There was a time, there was a time
Bring back that time, oh, bring back that time
        


        
Walk On By (Larry W Jones 08/06/2014) (song#6966)

I saw you this morning on Main St uptown
It's been a long while since I saw you last time
But then I remembered how you put me down
Walk on by unless you mean to walk the line

You sure looked like you were in a big hurry
You didn't stop by to read the big sale sign
I wanted to say Hi but I still worry
Walk on by unless you mean to walk the line

(instrumental)

Yesterday I was only your stepping stone
Now you have the finest clothes and choicest wine
If love's door has fully closed, I'll walk alone
Walk on by unless you mean to walk the line

If I see you walking uptown tomorrow
I might ask you once again if you'll be mine
If your answer is one to bring more sorrow
Walk on by unless you mean to walk the line
        
Down On Galveston Isle (Larry W Jones 08/06/2014) (song#6967)

She watches out her window for the surf to break
Each morning when the sun begins to shine
And she remembers happy times at the clam bakes
Then pours herself a glass of morning wine

Folks say she mourns for a past due salty sailor
Who said he would return and make her smile
But he then disappeared like an ancient whaler
And never returned to Galveston Isle

Down on Galveston Isle
The current flows toward Mexico
Down on Galveston Isle
Nobody knows where she will go

(instrumental)

Every day when shrimp boats arrive in Galveston
She looks for her lost sailor at the docks
She knows that he would always be the best dressed one
From his sailor hat right down to his socks

Folks say she mourns for a past due salty sailor
Who said he would return and make her smile
But he then disappeared like an ancient whaler
And never returned to Galveston Isle

Down on Galveston Isle
The current flows toward Mexico
Down on Galveston Isle
Nobody knows where she will go
        
Borderline Bourbon Time (Larry W Jones 08/10/2014) (song#6968)

I wake up south of the border in Mexico
And I recall what I tell myself every time
There's no order or reason why you had to go
My sweet dreams all fall at borderline bourbon time

When I pass by a phone I want to call you so
Pesos in Mexico aren't worth a silver dime
I know it isn't good to drink this strong Old Crow
Margaritas go with borderline bourbon time

(instrumental)

Memories cross the border of old Mexico
And I recall them all with tequila and lime
Sometimes I ponder them over some cheap bordeaux
And then think of you at borderline bourbon time

Down here on the borderline of old Mexico
When clouds appear there is no happy silver line
Just a feeling that I'm here for more tears and woe
I'll try to forget at borderline bourbon time
        
Jingle In My Jeans (Larry W Jones 08/11/2014) (song#6969)

There's a jingle in my jeans and I know what that means
I've got a decision to make
I can mingle with the crowd and play the jukebox loud
With a song about big heartbreak

Or I can call her on the phone and beg to come home
Though I don't know what she might say
Either come on home or stay out where you are and roam
I'll know more at the light of day

(instrumental)
 
I'll flip a coin with my thumb and hope the deal is done
The gingle in my jeans will say
Tails will mean more travail and heads will be a home run
I'll know more at the light of day

There's a jingle in my jeans and I know what that means
I've got a decision to make
I can mingle with the crowd and play the jukebox loud
With a song about big heartbreak

Or I can call her on the phone and beg to come home
The gingle in my jeans will say
        
Like A Troubadour To A Meadowlark (Larry W Jones 08/13/2014) (song#6970)

There's something I really want to tell you
And I sure hope that you will understand
You're the kind of woman I'd love to woo
But for daring words I'm a bashful man

Now, when it comes to crooning a love song
I can write it in rhyme to start a spark
Then sing it in a way that can't go wrong 
Like a troubadour to a meadow lark

(instrumental)

You're the meadowlark cause I've heard you sing
But when it comes to words I'm in the dark
Unless I write them in a song of Spring
And sing them softly to a meadowlark

Now, when it comes to crooning a love song
I can write it in rhyme to start a spark
Then sing it in a way that can't go wrong 
Like a troubadour to a meadow lark

I'll sing it in a way that can't go wrong 
Like a troubadour to a meadow lark
        
Lone Prairie (Larry W Jones 08/13/2014) (song#6971)

Lone prairie, lonely are the hills
Lone is the breeze even when still
Lone prarie, nightly bringing chill
Lone is the lowly whippoorwill

Every cowboy's heart beats a lonely rhythm too
When the golden moon repeats its monthly debut
Out on the lone prairie where no town is in view
This cowboy is blue because I'm not holding you

(instrumental)

Lone prairie, only you can know
Lone is the reason for my woe
Lone prairie, it's to you I owe
Lone is the trail where I ride slow

Every cowboy's heart beats a lonely rhythm too
When the golden moon repeats its monthly debut
Out on the lone prairie where no town is in view
This cowboy is blue because I'm not holding you
        
Three Pals Have I (Larry W Jones 08/13/2014) (song#6972)

Three pals have I and I know them well
So, of them now, to you I will tell
They reside in the East and the West
Let's ride to see and you be my guest

I have a pal known as the cool breeze
Low is his sound and it's sure to please
Across prairies wide he blows so free
I feel my pal and he's one of three

I have a pal who's the closest star
He's called the sun and he's not too far
He warms up my shoulders so gently
I feel the sun shining down on me

(instrumental)

I have a pal known as evening tide
He ebbs and flows on the oceans wide
I love to hear him as pounding surf
When I'm standing near on solid turf

The Creator made breeze, stars and tide
My heart has opened to blessings wide
Fore I was born they were there to see
I know them all and they all know me

Three pals have I and I know them well
So, of them now, to you I will tell
They reside in the East and the West
Let's ride to see and you be my guest
 
Three pals have I and I know them well
        
Let's Band Together (For Her Love) (Larry W Jones 08/14/2014) (song#6973)

The band is tuning up for the dance
And things are looking up for romance
I've got lips and hands, arms and a heart
And must get them each to do their part

The band is playing their first love song
Now, lips don't you say anything wrong
And heart don't quiver or miss a beat
Just give her warm feelings when we meet

Now, lips get ready to speak up bold
Arms, you both warm up to curl and hold
That girl's the one we've been dreaming of
Let's band together now for her love

(instrumental)

Now, nerves don't get yourself all high strung
And eyes, keep your focus on just one
Hands, hold her as closely as a glove
Let's band together now for her love

Now she's walking across the dance floor
And it looks like she's coming our way
All you parts together, do your chores
Let's band together now for her love
        
Across The Twilight (Larry W Jones 08/15/2014) (song#6974)

If I pass first and you live across my twilight
Plant an oak tree where the sun will shine always bright
As the tree grows tall and the branches fill with leaves
Remember me as the one who in love believes

If I pass first and you live past my Master's call
Plant an aster whose petals will be growing tall
As the petals bloom leave room in your memory
Remember me as I pass to eternity

(instrumental)

If I pass first and you live as the living do
Plant a garden rose for those passing by to view
As the flower grows each blossom will call your name
Remember me for one day dear I'll call the same

Across the twilight, blessed gathering
The earth will be a paradise
There life's bright highlight will be unending
Across the twilight, life's reprise
        
Neon Lights And Texas Music (Larry W Jones 08/15/2014) (song#6975)

Staying home alone is not for me anymore
I'm not gonna be the same ol me as before
Billy Bob's Texas is a place that does the trick
It has those bright neon lights and Texas music

Neon lights and Texas music
My past was dim but now it's bright
Neon lights and Texas music
I'll be at Billy Bob's tonight

(instrumental)

On a stool at the bar I'll fill a glass of beer
There'll be fools just like me searching for some cheer
Yeah, they're just like me, a country hillbilly hick
Looking for bright neon lights and Texas music

Neon lights and Texas music
My past was dim but now it's bright
Neon lights and Texas music
I'll be at Billy Bob's tonight
        
Panhandle Lights (Larry W Jones 08/20/2014) (song#6976)

Panhandle lights of Amarillo I can see
Like a moth to a candle for cowboys like me
The rodeo is where I'll be tomorrow night
Another show under Texas panhandle lights

Panhandle lights are bright and pretty in night time
But they have no pity on a poor cowboy's dime
The rodeo committee will think all is right
When I sign in blue ink under panhandle lights
 
(instrumental)

The road is dark but I see a glow up ahead
I'll find a cheap motel for my bone weary head
But tomorrow night I'll try to hang on real tight
On a bucking bronco under panhandle lights

Panhandle lights are bright and pretty in night time
But they have no pity on a poor cowboy's dime
The rodeo committee will think all is right
When I sign in blue ink under panhandle lights
        
Good Cowboy Music In My Soul (Larry W Jones 08/20/2014) (song#6977)

I've been ridin' trails with my guitar and a song
Sittin' on hay bales singin' about some cowpoke
This way of livin' has gone on for much too long
There's been too much givin' and this old cowboy's broke

But there's good cowboy music in my soul
So, I'll be singin' til I'm good and old
Ridin' down the trail singin' is my goal
Cause there's good cowboy music in my soul

(instrumental)

Someday the purple sage will wither and then die
To remind me of my age and where I will lie
Just how long that will be is in the great unknown
Til then I'll ride the trails with guitar and a song

Yes, there's good cowboy music in my soul
So, I'll be singin' til I'm good and old
Ridin' down the trail singin' is my goal
Cause there's good cowboy music in my soul
        
Hillbilly Country Song (Larry W Jones 08/20/2014) (song#6978)

Well, now I realize my loss is from a big mistake
A line was crossed that now has led to my great big heartache
When true love dies because of some silly pig headed wrong
It just makes me want to sing a hillbilly country song

A hillbilly country song
About a true love gone wrong
A hillbilly country song
In there somewhere I belong

(instrumental)

It's hard to realize that a true love is gone and dead
Too little good was done and way too many wrongs were said
When true love is still a dream that now will not come along
It just makes me want to sing a hillbilly country song

A hillbilly country song
About a true love gone wrong
A hillbilly country song
In there somewhere I belong
        
Hard To Come By Easy Gone (Larry W Jones 08/20/2014) (song#6978)

It's hard to believe what you wrote, dear =9
Your note meant that you are really gone
You found someone else to bring you cheer
So I'll pack my gear and move along

Hard to come by, easy gone
Sounds like a good country song
It's too bad it sounds so sad
Hard to come by, easy gone

(instrumental)

Send my photograph from your locket
Replace it with the one you love now
I'll keep it here safe in my pocket
Although it won't matter anyhow

Hard to come by, easy gone
Sounds like a good country song
It's too bad it sounds so sad
Hard to come by, easy gone

True love is hard to come by
And it's easy to be gone
        
Here Comes Trouble Again (Larry W Jones 08/22/2014) (song#6979)

Whenever I almost get myself together
I take it on the chin
Whenever I almost bet there's sunny weather
Here comes trouble again

Trouble goes and trouble comes again upon me
She goes and comes at will
Whenever I dream it's always of her only
These woes are numbing still

(instrumental)

Whenever I think I've found a new love that's true
And my heart just might mend
That's when she comes around and makes me feel so blue
Here comes trouble again

Whenever I almost get myself together
I take it on the chin
Whenever I almost bet there's sunny weather
Here comes trouble again
        
I'll Go Down Saddled Up (Larry W Jones 08/28/2014) (song#6980)

The cowgirl I love didn't hang around
She sprang for someone in another town
Today I guess she's in her new ranch home
I'm a mess but I can branch out alone

Cause I'll go down saddled up on new trails
Gonna ride til I need new horseshoe nails
I'm not gonna frown over one spilled cup
Tell all cowboys I'll go down saddled up

(instrumental)

I'll find a new cowgirl and buy her wine
Somewhere down the trail with my silver dime
Now, I may be a fool or something else
But I'll go down saddled up by myself

Cause I'll go down saddled up on new trails
Gonna ride til I need new horseshoe nails
I'm not gonna frown over one spilled cup
Tell all cowboys I'll go down saddled up
