One Town Between Us (Larry W Jones 02/08/2015) (song#7001)
 
Far down the road you went driving
Leaving a load here on my mind
And I'm not really surviving
Just within four walls I'm confined

One town between us, that's where you are
One town between us, one town too far

Every day I keep asking why
Why did the road call you by name
Every day I look to the sky
Asking myself if I'm to blame

One town between us, that's where you are
One town between us, one town too far

(instrumental)

I thought our vows were forever
To live and to laugh and to love
I wonder how they were severed
From riding the wings of a dove

One town between us, that's where you are
One town between us, one town too far
Hidden Valley (Larry W Jones 02/08/2015) (song #7002)

Hidden is the valley I'm going to
Where all tears that are shed are deepest blue
My poor heart is filled with pain endlessly
So I'll hide away in Hidden Valley

Hidden are her charms that I once knew of
Gone from my arms without a clue is love
I feel like pins in a bowling alley
That's why I'll settle in Hidden Valley

Hidden Valley's at the foot of sorrow
Hidden Valley's where I'll be tomorrow

(instrumental)

Hidden are her charms that I once knew of
Gone from my arms without a clue is love
I feel like pins in a bowling alley
That's why I'll settle in Hidden Valley

That girl's the reason I lost happiness
Now has come the season of lonesomeness
My poor heart is filled with pain endlessly
So I'll hide away in Hidden Valley

Hidden Valley's at the foot of sorrow
Hidden Valley's where I'll be tomorrow
How Can I Survive (Larry W Jones 02/09/2015) (song#7003)

When you left I was bereft of just what to do
It was like a theft when all my gold dreams turned blue
How can I survive when of your love I'm deprived
You're who I'm thinking of while working nine to five 

How can I survive when I don't know where to start
To stop loving you are words I can't tell my heart
I'll go on loving you as long as I'm alive
But I'll go along asking how can I survive

(instrumental)

How can I survive when I don't know where to start
To stop loving you are words I can't tell my heart
I'll go on loving you as long as I'm alive
But I'll go along asking how can I survive

How can I survive when of your love I'm deprived
You're who I'm thinking of while working nine to five 
How can I survive when of your love I'm deprived
You're who I'm thinking of while working nine to five
Twelve Roses Minus One (Larry W Jones 02/10/2015) (song#7004)

Dear, I sent you twelve roses minus one
The flower shop girl didn't have a clue
I lost the one love I thought I had won
The one flower that is missing is you

I regret the bouquet is one rose short
I hope eleven brings happiness that's due
But I know loneliness fills my heart heart
The one flower that is missing is you

(instrumental)

I regret the bouquet is one rose short
I hope eleven brings happiness that's due
But I know loneliness fills my heart heart
The one flower that is missing is you

Dear, I sent you twelve roses minus one
The one flower that is missing is you
Dear, I sent you twelve roses minus one
The one flower that is missing is you
I'm Not Crazy For Wanting You
(Larry W Jones 02/11/2015) (song#7005)

I'm not crazy for wanting you
Though my mind says you'll paint love blue
My poor heart is kind in saying
I'm not crazy for wanting you

I don't dare to let this dream go
Though it will be unfair, I know
But even so, I know it's true
I'm not crazy for wanting you

(instrumental)

I don't dare to let this dream go
Though it will be unfair, I know
But even so, I know it's true
I'm not crazy for wanting you

I cannot bear to see you gone
I'm aware that to you I'm drawn
With each dawning I dream anew
I'm not crazy for wanting you
I Knew It Had To Be You (Larry W Jones 02/11/2015) (song#7006)

Made up hair and made up eyes
I saw right through your disguise
I knew it had to be you

Designer dress, look your best
You must think that you've been blessed
I knew it had to be you

You said you'd be my only
So why am I so lonely
I saw a smile on your face
It was a disgraceful view
I knew it had to be you

(instrumental)

Big jewel on your finger
Bent all rules I remember
I knew it had to be you

A poor farm girl I once knew
You left someone who was true
I knew it had to be you

You said our love could weather
All trials and be together
I did my part all the same
Now whose heart is there to blame
I knew it had to be you
Nothing's Gonna Change (Larry W Jones 02/12/2015) (song#7007)

Well, nothing's gonna change cause you're trapped in my memory
I've kept your pictures on the walls and the ones in the halls
Your chair is still around and the curtains have not come down
No, nothing's gonna change cause you're trapped in my memory

The guitar that you gave, I still try to play when I'm brave
The jukebox still turns and the records I never have burned
I mow the grass and weeds and do the other manly deeds
No, nothing's gonna change cause you're trapped in my memory

(instrumental)

The guitar that you gave, I still try to play when I'm brave
The jukebox still turns and the records I never have burned
I mow the grass and weeds and do the other manly deeds
No, nothing's gonna change cause you're trapped in my memory

The same carpet's on the floor as when you walked out the door
Nothing's gonna change and it all remains just as before
I don't see a silver line cause dark clouds are in my mind
No, nothing's gonna change cause you're trapped in my memory
I'm A Poor Cowboy (Larry W Jones 02/13/2015) (song#7008)

Now, I've got no horse cause he just went lame
And most of my saddle pals claim the same old line
But I've got a cowgirl, calls me honey
She's not out for money which suits me fine

Well, I've rode on roundups and cattle drives
Ain't much I ain't done since bein' alive
I've seen lots of gals dressed in calico
But when pressed for marriage away I rode

(instrumental)

Yeah, some cowgirls mentioned golden band rings
But I ain't got the money for such things
My brand is a zero over a bar
Never gonna be a hero or a star

But I've got a cowgirl, calls me honey
She's not out for money which suits me fine
I'm a poor cowboy, just a poor cowboy
I'm a poor cowboy, just a poor cowboy
Ain't got a dime
Long Tall Texan Long Time Blues (Larry W Jones 02/13/2015) (song#7009)

It's been a long long time since I kissed me a girl
And when I kiss my horse it don't give me a whirl
I might trade my old cowboy boots for hobnail shoes
Yeah boys, I've got the long tall Texan long time blues

I thought Sally Mae was the right cowgirl for me
Oh, but then she began to stray incessently
There ain't no joys in a love where you always lose 
Yeah boys, I've got the long tall Texan long time blues

(instrumental)

Well, I went to the big barn dance the other night
I'll be darned if it didn't turn into a fight
They drug me out by my boots with a big shine bruise
Yeah boys, I've got the long tall Texan long time blues

Ridin' low in the saddle cause my backbone's slipped
The sheriff done told me, boy, don't give me no lip
It's been a long long time since I kissed me a girl
And when I kiss my horse it don't give me a whirl

Yeah boys, I've got the long tall Texan long time blues
The long tall Texan long time blues
If You Ride Down My Trail Again (Larry W Jones 02/13/2015) (song#7010)

Will you stop by my ranch if you ride down my trail again
We can talk about what went wrong and of what might have been
If your visit makes me fonder or I'm still just a friend
I need to know sweetheart, if you ride down my trail again

If you ride down my trail again I'll be in the corral
Let me know and let me see dear, if you'll still be my gal
I feel like I've been on a long cattle drive that won't end
I'll sing a sweeter song if you ride down my trail again

(instrumental)

If you ride down my trail again I'll be in the corral
Let me know and let me see dear, if you'll still be my gal
I feel like I've been on a long cattle drive that won't end
I'll sing a sweeter song if you ride down my trail again

Will you stop by my ranch if you ride down my trail again
We can talk about what went wrong and of what might have been
If you ride down my trail again
Eight In The Evening (Larry W Jones 02/14/2015) (song#7011)

The wall clock says eight in the evening, time for the grieving
I prob'ly won't sleep until dawn
From the moment I saw her walking, ended the talking
About why she was so withdrawn

All the shock that came from my knowing, love wasn't growing
I couldn't believe she was gone
The wall clock says eight in the evening, time for the grieving
I prob'ly won't sleep until dawn

(instrumental)

I did all I could to deserve her, I tried to serve her
I don't know how I'll carry on
Later tonight I won't be sleeping, my eyes are weeping
In love I was her merry pawn

The wall clock says eight in the evening, time for the grieving
I prob'ly won't sleep until dawn
The wall clock says eight in the evening, time for the grieving
I know I won't sleep until dawn
Notebook And Pencil (Larry W Jones 02/16/2015) (song#7012)

Notebook and pencil, help my fingers write
Just a note to tell her all is not right
She'll look at my note and know we are through
But I don't know how cause she'll be so blue

Notebook and pencil, almost out of lead
I've started so often my hand feels dead
I'm glad it's not ink like tears that won't dry
Notebook and pencil, please help me to write

(instrumental)

On the floor is a pile of scrap paper
Too many notes that I know would break her
How can I tell her I've found a new friend
Notebook and pencil, please help me begin

Notebook and pencil, help my fingers write
Just a note to tell her all is not right
She'll look at my note and know we are through
But I don't know how cause she'll be so blue

Notebook and pencil, please help me get through
Kingwood Texas Cowboy (Larry W Jones 02/21/2015) (song#7013)

He wears a Stetson and he's Texas to the bone
Riding out across the prairies and the wide range
Cowgirls love or hate him but won't leave him alone
Although the ones who love him know he'll never change

And they just call him the Kingwood Texas Cowboy
He rides into town with a great big Texas flair
Way too many hearts he has broken from the start
He's the Kingwood Texas Cowboy but few girls care

(instrumental)

One time he rode out from Kingwood to San Antone
To see a cowgirl he thought was his amigo
But when he arrived, of her love he wasn't shown
She was kissing one unknown by the Alamo

And they just call him the Kingwood Texas Cowboy
He rides into town with a great big Texas flair
Way too many hearts he has broken from the start
He's the Kingwood Texas Cowboy but few girls care

Way too many hearts he has broken from the start
He's the Kingwood Texas Cowboy but few girls care
Texas Mambo (Larry W Jones 02/21/2015) (song #7014)

(short fiddle intro)

Well pards, I say Yep to the dancing there
It's a Mambo step with a Texas flair
Almost as fast as the Cotton-Eyed Joe
And it's here to last, the Texas Mambo

Here comes sweet Eileen straight from Abilene
Ready to dance to a Texas combo
Fiddles are in tune with the Texas moon
It's a riddle, it's the Texas Mambo

(instrumental fiddle and maracas)

Now, all you Dallas Texans clap your hands
And in El Paso on the Rio Grande
Look at Alice dance the Mambo with Gus
There's a little Mambo in all of us

And I never thought I would see the day
They'd do the Mambo on Galveston Bay
All cowboys and cowgirls and sourdoughs
Are dancin' to the new Texas Mambo

(short fiddle and maracas)

And I never thought I would see the day
They'd do the Mambo on Galveston Bay
All cowboys and cowgirls and sourdoughs
Are dancin' to the new Texas Mambo

Texas Mambo!
Trying To Clear My Worried Mind (Larry W Jones 03/17/2015) (song#7015)

You can call it a malfunction
When I heard that outbound train whine
I missed her at the town junction
Trying to clear my worried mind

I traveled the wide world over
Where a true love I tried to find
Even picked a four leaf clover
Trying to clear my worried mind

I rode the rails from east to west
And searched the skies for just a sign
All hope failed but I did my best
Trying to clear my worried mind

(instrumental)

I rode the rails from east to west
And searched the skies for just a sign
All hope failed but I did my best
Trying to clear my worried mind

Hear my story and what I found
If your heart is troubled like mine
Don't give up wherever you're bound
Trying to clear your worried mind
I Need A Sweetheart (Larry W Jones 04/19/2015) (song#7016)

Some people hold everything in their hands
Except for what they need most in this life
Time for them is like footprints in the sand
That soon disappear in heartaches and strife

I want fine silver and I want good gold
But I need a sweetheart that I can hold
I have traveled the world out in the cold
And I need a sweetheart that I can hold

(instrumental)

There was a time when everything was fine
Or at least that is what I used to say
Until I realized what was never mine
For real love always seemed to slip away

I want fine silver and I want good gold
But I need a sweetheart that I can hold
I have traveled the world out in the cold
And I need a sweetheart that I can hold

I want fine silver and I want good gold
But I need a sweetheart that I can hold
Just Get The Job Done (Larry W Jones 11/02/2015) (song #7017)

When I was real young, Daddy's song was sung
Don't fool around son, Just get the job done
Grow up to be a man
Right now you're real young, but follow your sun
When the work is done, go and have your fun
You'll make a real top hand

Just get the job done, son get the job done
That was my Daddy's song that I heard sung

Well, when I grew up, bought a pickup truck
Saved all my money, every cent and buck
Grew up tall and tanned
When I was real young, I followed my sun
I got the work done, no time for real fun
Now I'm a real top hand

(instrumental)

While I raised my son, Daddy's song was sung
Grow up to be a man
Right now you're real young, but follow your sun
When the work is done, go and have your fun
You'll make a real top hand

Just get the job done, son get the job done
That was my Daddy's song that I heard sung
Just get the job done, just get the job done		
I Write The Songs I've Written Larry W Jones 02/01/2017) (song #7018) 

I write the songs I've written for fools like me to sing
Between the lines are hidden both big and little things
And if you ever hear them, don't think I'm being mean
I write the songs I've written for fools like me to sing

I once wrote a song for one who was my own
Some guy came along and now I'm all alone
Didn't learn my lesson, wrote another song
Bout another girl who done this writer wrong

I write the songs I've written for fools like me to sing
Between the lines are hidden both big and little things
And if you ever hear them, don't think I'm being mean
I write the songs I've written for fools like me to sing

(Instrumental)

I once wrote some words I thought would touch her heart
Words that painted pictures like a work of art
But between the lines I knew it wasn't smart
I sung her that song and then watched her depart

I write the songs I've written for fools like me to sing
Between the lines are hidden both big and little things
And if you ever hear them, don't think I'm being mean
I write the songs I've written for fools like me to sing		
Once In A Blue Moon When I Dream Larry W Jones 02/01/2017) (song #7019)

Once in a blue moon when I dream, I'll dream a dream of you
And it always starts, my dear, when our dreams were new
But I never reach the end to see if that dream comes true
The moon turns blue because of things I never knew

I never knew the time would come when I'd be all alone
It seems a crime to pay for things I've never done
My poor heart will soon be beating as when I'm growing old
Once in a blue moon when I dream, the moon is cold

(Instrumental)

Once in a blue moon when I dream, it's still the same old song
It seems to end somehow just when it's going strong
Oh, I try as best I can but it never does come true
I lie awake in bed just crying over you

I never knew the time would come when I'd be all alone
It seems a crime to pay for things I've never done
My poor heart will soon be beating as when I'm growing old
Once in a blue moon when I dream, the moon is cold

My poor heart will soon be beating as when I'm growing old
Once in a blue moon when I dream, the moon is cold
Down There In Your Own Town Square Larry W Jones 02/01/2017) (song #7020) 

Boats, trains and planes can take you clear to Spain
And you'll be glad when you get there
But if you can't go, don't cry in the rain
It's down there in your own town square

The food they serve in old downtown Madrid
Is said to be the best of fare
Oh, but you too can do just as I did
Dine down there in your own town square

Yes, you can buy your silver in Seville
And gold medallions that are rare
But you can find a treasure at Goodwill
Right down there in your own town square

(Instrumental)

Yes, you can buy your silver in Seville
And gold medallions that are rare
But you can find a treasure at Goodwill
Right down there in your own town square

Boats, trains and planes can take you clear to Spain
And you'll be glad when you get there
But if you can't go, don't cry in the rain
It's down there in your own town square

All you search to find, just keep this in mind
It's down there in your own town square
Ain't No Fix For Rocky Mountain Blues (Larry W Jones 02/02/2017) (song #7021)

Boys, ain't no fix for Rocky Mountain Blues

I started out to lace my hiking boots
And to load my backpack on both shoulders
Hiking the Rockies are part of my roots
In Summer before the days get colder

But then I heard that old telephone ring
And well, I knew it wouldn't be good news
Boss said I've gotta work the shift called swing
Boys, ain't no fix for Rocky Mountain Blues

Now, some days I win and some days I lose
No, ain't no fix for Rocky Mountain Blues

(Instrumental)

Now, my wife told me as sweet as honey
I need six new dresses, money from you
Miss my hiking on a day so sunny
Cause, ain't no fix for Rocky Mountain Blues

Gonna sneak up the trail before daylight
Before my wife and my boss got any clues
Hope I don't meet a bear ready to fight
But, ain't no fix for Rocky Mountain Blues

Now, some days I win and some days I lose
No, ain't no fix for Rocky Mountain Blues
Gotta go take a hike
Heavy On My Mind But Light On My Heart (Larry W Jones 02/02/2017) (song #7022) 

Dear, you're heavy on my mind but light on my heart
I was inclined that way right from the very start
Yeah, I fell in love with a perfect work of art
And you're heavy on my mind but light on my heart

I remember when it seemed I just could not win
Cause, at the game of love I was just a has been
But then you came in view and I had a new start
Now, you're heavy on my mind but light on my heart

(Instrumental)

Your sweet love has given me a chance to be free
Free from a heavy heart and darkness over me
From our first hello, I knew we'd never part
Dear, you're heavy on my mind but light on my heart  

Dear, you're heavy on my mind but light on my heart
I was inclined that way right from the very start
Yeah, I fell in love with a perfect work of art
And you're heavy on my mind but light on my heart

Yes, you're heavy on my mind but light on my heart
Doggone Lonely Blues (Larry W Jones 02/02/2017) (song #7023) 

Well now, this old heart of mine is crying
Like tears down a bottle of booze
I'm so lonely that I'm just gonna quit trying
To lose these doggone lonely blues

You said we'd be like birds of a feather
And in all kinds of weather, true
Now my dear, I don't know as to whether
I'll lose these doggone lonely blues

Something told me before you were leaving
That you'd go on a one way cruise
Now you've left me here alone and grieving
With just these doggone lonely blues

(Instrumental)

Somehow I feel you have gone forever
Cause when you left, you left no clues
And now that you're gone, I know I'll never
Live without doggone lonely blues

I suspect by now you've found another
Man to fill my old empty shoes
But don't let me know because I rather
Just live with doggone lonely blues
Oh Fool Hearted Me (Larry W Jones 02/02/2017) (song #7024) 

Oh, fool hearted me, oh, fool hearted me

Oh, fool hearted me let love slip away
Like a ship that slipped its line at the quay
Well, I should have known but I could not see
What a fool I was, oh, fool hearted me

Yes, my eyes were blurred but wide open too
With rain that falls down from the skies of blue
That was the day I heard of her decree
She wanted to be free, oh, fool hearted me

(Instrumental)

To her I gave my love so completely
Fool hearted me lost eventually
Promises she gave me were not to be
And now words are engraved, fool hearted me

Oh, fool hearted me let love slip away
Like a ship that slipped its line at the quay
Well, I should have known but I could not see
What a fool I was, oh, fool hearted me

Oh, fool hearted me, oh, fool hearted me
A New Heartbreak For Old Times Sake (Larry W Jones 02/03/2017) (song #7025)

My dear, I need to ask you, do one thing for me
It's about something old I can't shake
Though you are gone, return to me for my heart needs
A New Heartbreak For Old Times Sake

You once gave me a chance to love and laugh and live
Then my world rattled like a quake
Now please return to me for I know you can give
A New Heartbreak For Old Times Sake

(Instrumental)

I doubt that there's a chance to spark romance again
I'll mark my time while my heart aches
And take the stance once more that maybe I can win
A New Heartbreak For Old Times Sake

You once gave me a chance to love and laugh and live
Then my world rattled like a quake
Now please return to me for I know you can give
A New Heartbreak For Old Times Sake

Now please return to me for I know you can give
A New Heartbreak For Old Times Sake
I Don't Need Another You (Larry W Jones 02/04/2017) (song #7026)

I don't need another you to replace
The smile I make every day, every place
I don't need another you with your grace
You're the reason why I win at life's race

Now, I don't need to think of you at all
You're on my mind both daylight and nightfall
I like the way you heed love's every call
I don't need another you in the hall

(Instrumental)

I don't need another you, someone new
Cause you're the only one I'll be true to
Dear, I knew that as our love grew and grew
I don't need another you in the queue

I don't need to find new places to go
Or look at some new faces I don't know
I remember when I became your beau
I don't need another you just for show

I don't need another you at my door
You're the only one I need more and more
Blow That Horn Mister Engineer (Larry W Jones 02/05/2017) (song #7027)

This old box car is rolling through the night
Following a star somewhere out of sight
Won't you blow that horn Mister Engineer
Before that old town called Nashville is here

Blow that horn Mister Engineer
Wake me up when Nashville is near
My Boomer Days are almost gone
I gotta sing my railroad song

(Instrumental)

Well, I had lots of ramblin' on my mind
But the time has come for me to unwind
Nashville is calling to me loud and clear
Won't you blow that horn Mister Engineer

Blow that horn Mister Engineer
Wake me up when Nashville is near
My Boomer Days are almost gone
I gotta sing my railroad song

Blow that horn Mister Engineer
Wake me up when Nashville is near
My Boomer Days are almost gone
I gotta sing my railroad song
With No Dark Shadow Of Your Memory (Larry W Jones 02/02/2017) (song #7028)

How I wish that I could see the sunshine
For I would feel that I am at last free
And I wish that I held a hand in mine
With no dark shadow of your memory

My whole world became an unlit garden
When you just walked away with no pardon
Now I can only feel fit and carefree
With no dark shadow of your memory

I could feel the warm sunshine over me
With no dark shadow of your memory

(Instrumental)

I know that there would come the good old times
When the air was warm as in Summertime
If only love's light I could clearly see
With no dark shadow of your memory

My whole world became an unlit garden
When you just walked away with no pardon
Now I can only feel fit and carefree
With no dark shadow of your memory

I could feel the warm sunshine over me
With no dark shadow of your memory

With no dark shadow of your memory
Vows Of A Yellow Rose (Larry W Jones 02/05/2017) (song #7029)

A red rose means love but a yellow means goodbye
One comes from above while the other says denied
I gave eleven red roses, you were number twelve
How was I to know those red roses you would shelve

Throughout these cold lonely years dear, since I lost you
I still see one yellow rose that looks like brand new
I was hoping that twelfth red rose would be my own
But you turned out to be a yellow rose of stone

(Instrumental)

I went to your wedding and hid behind the crowd
Each word you repeated were words that I avowed
I left before it ended, my hopes were then closed
I lost my future with vows of a yellow rose

A red rose means love but a yellow means goodbye
One comes from above while the other says denied
I gave eleven red roses, you were number twelve
How was I to know those red roses you would shelve

I left before it ended, my hopes were then closed
I lost my future with vows of a yellow rose

The Kinda Lovin' I Love (Larry W Jones 02/06/2017) (song #7030)

The foreman loves it when I'm working late
The owner loves it when my check's not late
The tabby loves it when I stroke her fur
The dog loves it when I remove a burr
But what I really love is love from her

She's has the kinda lovin' I love
She's kinda warm like a hand in glove
She's kinda what I've been dreamin' of 
She's has the kinda lovin' I love

(Instrumental)

The neighbor loves it when she sees me grin
The Ford loves it when I give it a spin
The sailboat loves it when it feels the wind
The song loves it when the music begins
But what I really love ain't next of kin

She's has the kinda lovin' I love
She's kinda warm like a hand in glove
She's kinda what I've been dreamin' of 
She's has the kinda lovin' I love

She's has the kinda lovin' I love
She's kinda warm like a hand in glove
She's kinda what I've been dreamin' of 
She's has the kinda lovin' I love
What Heel Would Steal My Steel Guitar (Larry W Jones 02/07/2017) (song #7031)

Now, I am a steeler, steel guitar's what I play
Card carryin' steeler, that's what my music cards say
Was on my way to bein' a steel guitar star
Left in my car, what heel would steal my steel guitar?

It was an old Gibson, from a second hand store
Wanted a new one but couldn't afford anymore
I treated it like royalty or maybe more
Now I'm at war, what heel would steal my steel guitar?

(Steel Guitar Instrumental)

I polished all the pedals until they all shined
Like a sewing machine treadle that's been refined
Ladies loved to hear that twang, they came from afar
They don't hang 'round no more, I lost my steel guitar

It was an old Gibson, from a second hand store
Wanted a new one but couldn't afford anymore
I treated it like royalty or maybe more
Now I'm at war, what heel would steal my steel guitar?

(Steel Guitar Instrumental)

I played those strings like a Shot Jackson old Show-Bud
And played just like Ralph Mooney in Bakersfield could
Jerry Byrd and Herb Remington, I was on par
Ain't gonna tell Speedy West I lost my guitar 

It was an old Gibson, from a second hand store
Wanted a new one but couldn't afford anymore
I treated it like royalty or maybe more
Now I'm at war, what heel would steal my steel guitar?
Now The Cattle Drive Is Over (Larry W Jones 02/09/2017) (song #7032)

(Now the cattle drive is over, the purple night is drawing nigh)

Now the cattle drive is over
The purple night is drawing nigh
Shadows of the cowboys lengthen
As the bright sun sinks from the sky

There's a bedroll for the weary
All ready for some sweet repose
Round the campfire they'll be cheery
As cowboy songs will be composed

(Instrumental)

There's a bedroll for the weary
All ready for some sweet repose
Round the campfire they'll be cheery
As cowboy songs will be composed

And when the morning comes again
Sleepy eyes will then open wide
Cowboys who are like next of kin
Unto their own homesteads will ride

Now the cattle drive is over
The purple night is drawing nigh
Charro Gold (Larry W Jones 02/09/2017) (song #7033)

I recall two years to the day
Rain fell like buckets from the sky
Green grass and flowers on display
West Texas bailed up oats and rye

But two years later in Midland
Dust blew strong in west Texas skies
So strong it almost hid the sun
And I saw tears in Papa's eyes

He spoke about the golden colt
That horse I loved was two years old
Grass died, Odessa Creek ran dry
Papa had to sell Charro Gold

Charro Gold, races he had run
Charro Gold, races he had won
Charro Gold and I were best friends
How could such end with Charro Gold

(Instrumental)

As time went by, well so did I
On the path of the rodeo
My old Ford pickup almost died
On the long road to Idaho

I joined the ring like all cowboys
Pulled a number from the hat bold
In chute five was my ride of joy
I rode the outlaw Charro Gold

Charro Gold, races he had run
Charro Gold, races he had won
Charro Gold and I were best friends
I bought him back, my Charro Gold
These Blues Are My Just Dues (Larry W Jones 02/09/2017) (song #7034)

This expression on my face has been here awhile
It's not a smile
My life has turned around, now it looks upside down
Just like a clown
I searched through all the clues
These blues are my just dues

These old blues are workin' hard on me, on my heart
Where did it start
These old blues just won't set me free, they let me see
That I'm the key
Your sweet love I refused
These blues are my just dues

(Instrumental)

The sun tried to shine but dark clouds got in the way
Still here today
Now I need the comfort of your arms more and more
Or rain will pour
I know there's no excuse
These blues are my just dues

These old blues are workin' hard on me, on my heart
Where did it start
These old blues just won't set me free, they let me see
That I'm the key
Your sweet love I refused
These blues are my just dues
Small Town Breakdown (Larry W Jones 02/10/2017) (song #7035)

Small town things can mean so much
Small things like your easy touch
Now that you are not around
Led to my small town breakdown

Missing you both day and night
An oath that seemed just and right
My face is all just a frown
It's been my small town breakdown

And if I meet you again
On some street where love had been
Right here in this old small town
It would bring small town breakdown

(Instrumental)

And if I meet you again
On some street where love had been
Right here in this old small town
It would bring small town breakdown

Missing you both day and night
An oath that seemed just and right
My face is all just a frown
It's been my small town breakdown
Fifty Seven ThunderbirdTitle (Larry W Jones 02/10/2017) (song #7036)

We were looking through old photographs
When some fond old memories were stirred
Cause one of them made us smile and laugh
Bright red fifty seven Thunderbird

Yeah, we got excited talking about
All the times we drove that car around
It was the cutest without a doubt
Fifty seven Thunderbird in town

It had fins that swept all the way back
To the blue-dot tail lights we preferred
Port hole window in a hard top black
Fit that fifty seven Thunderbird

We drove that car in the sun and rain
And parked in the park to share love words
How we wish we had that car again
Our old fifty seven Thunderbird

(Instrumental)

We laughed about it, tears in our eyes
Both happy and sad without a word
We marveled at why and how time flies
And our fifty seven Thunderbird

It had fins that swept all the way back
To the blue-dot tail lights we preferred
Port hole window in a hard top black
Fit that fifty seven Thunderbird

Our old fifty seven Thunderbird
She Was A Bud Before The Rose (Larry W Jones 	02/11/2017) (song #7037)

We both were young as I recall the time
But soon love would fall like a song in rhyme
Way before our prime
She was a bud before the rose appeared
But not too young before the flood of tears

She was a bud before the rose
A pretty flower, head to toes
We were too young when love was found
Time found petals flung to the ground

(Instrumental)

While still in school I bought a band of gold
Our parents knew better and we were told
There's a hill to climb
Now as I recall through a flood of tears
She was a bud before the rose appeared

She was a bud before the rose
A pretty flower, head to toes
We were too young when love was found
Time found petals flung to the ground

She was a bud before the rose
A pretty flower, head to toes
She was a bud before the rose
Soft Tears Fell On Hardwood (Larry W Jones 02/12/2017) (song #7038)

Soft tears fell on hardwood when she fell out of love

Soft tears fell on hardwood, she danced with someone new
Soft tears fell on hardwood, my world turned shaded blue
Soft tears fell on hardwood like raindrops from above
My tears fell on hardwood when she fell out of love

Teardrops that she walked on were scattered on the floor
Trampled like my heart was, so broken more and more
Soft tears fell on hardwood before the others dried
Soft tears fell on hardwood, my love met its demise

(Instrumental)

Teardrops that she walked on were scattered on the floor
Trampled like my heart was, so broken more and more
Soft tears fell on hardwood before the others dried
Soft tears fell on hardwood, my love met its demise

Soft tears fell on hardwood, she danced with someone new
Soft tears fell on hardwood, my world turned shaded blue
Soft tears fell on hardwood, she danced with someone new
Soft tears fell on hardwood...
Add Another New Fool To The Rule (Larry W Jones 02/12/2017) (song #7039)

Well, I've burned some bridges to the ground
And turned some dreams upside down in town
I broke rules of love by playing cool 
Add another new fool to the rule

Add another new fool to the rule
I lost out by never chosing you
Rules say hearts feel pain where there's no gain
Add another new fool to the rule

(Instrumental)

Burning love to ashes was my game
And smoke is not only what remains
Rules said all along, don't do no wrong
Add another new fool to the rule

Add another new fool to the rule
I lost out by never chosing you
Rules say hearts feel pain where there's no gain
Add another new fool to the rule

I lost out by never chosing you
Add another new fool to the rule
My Hard Times Were Never Easy (Larry W Jones 02/12/2017) (song #7040)

My hard times were never easy
And easy times were kinda hard

Raised in an old tar paper shack
Freight trains rolled by with smoking stack
Grew up too soon, became a man
Ate beans and grits from a tin can


I got knocked down and thrown around
When I moved to a big old town
Moved to the country with no plan
Little town talked against this man

My hard times were never easy
Always had to be on my guard
The big sawmill boss was sleazy
And easy times were kinda hard

(Instrumental)

My hard times were never easy
Always had to be on my guard
The big sawmill boss was sleazy
And easy times were kinda hard

One love I lost, another found
But she turned to frost on cold ground
That bridge burned and I let it be
All that's left is her memory

My hard times were never easy
And easy times were kinda hard
My hard times were never easy
And easy times were kinda hard
As Long As Four Winds Blow (Larry W Jones 	02/13/2017) (song #7041)

There's no way you can hold the wind
I rarely go back where I've been
No sweet face has a hold on me
Too many places I must see

As long as four winds blow, as high tides ebb and flow
As long as trains roll on, as rains fall then are gone
As long as geese are wild, I'll be unreconciled
As long as four winds blow, as long as four winds blow

(Instrumental)

A strong chain gang could never hold
The wind or me even when old
One like me with a restless soul
Will wander on as four winds blow

As long as four winds blow, as high tides ebb and flow
As long as trains roll on, as rains fall then are gone
As long as geese are wild, I'll be unreconciled
As long as four winds blow, as long as four winds blow

(Instrumental)

My Daddy told me when I went home
Your Mama and me are alone
It's good to have you back here, son
I said I have to move along

As long as four winds blow, as high tides ebb and flow
As long as trains roll on, as rains fall then are gone
As long as geese are wild, I'll be unreconciled
As long as four winds blow, as long as four winds blow
Are You Sincere (Larry W Jones 02/13/2017) (song #7042)

Are you sincere or will I miss
My holding you near for your kiss
I love you dear, that you must know
If you're sincere, please let it show

Are you sincere with me my dear
When you tell me to never fear
Sincerity will never lie
Please be sincere, don't let love die

Are you sincere with words you speak
Let it be clear, true words I seek
That you love me, you truly do
If you're sincere, I won't be blue

(Instrumental)

Are you sincere with words you speak
Let it be clear, true words I seek
That you love me, you truly do
If you're sincere, I won't be blue

Are you sincere and tell no lies
Are you truthful with no disguise
If you are dear, that will be fine
If you're sincere, you will be mine
Happy Street And Sad Avenue (Larry W Jones 02/13/2017) (song #7043)

This phone booth's posted address is
Happy Street and Sad Avenue
At the corner of decision
Of running or return to you

I searched in both of my pockets
And found a quarter and a dime
My finger's in the dial socket
Happy and sad at the same time

Skies are cloudy, here comes the rain
Close the booth door with one old shoe
I'm ringing from the corner of
Happy Street and Sad Avenue

(Instrumental)

How long will you take to answer
Let it ring a minute or two
Half an hour and I'm still here at	
Happy Street and Sad Avenue

I guess I'll hang up the phone now
Waiting longer will be no use
I know which way I will go now
Happy Street no, Sad Avenue
Away Out On The Prairie (Larry W Jones 02/15/2017) (song #7044)

Well, I packed the saddle bags on my old gray nag
Bid farewell to Liza Jane, I couldn't tarry
Goin' where men are ragtag
Away out on the prairie 

(Yodel) Eye-de oh-lo-oo, de-lee-oh-oo, dee-oh, lee-oh-oo-dee-ee

Where the antelopes roam is where I'll build my home
And the rainbow hues and skies of blue are airy
The dirt out there is loamy
Away out on the prairie

(Yodel) Eye-de oh-lo-oo, de-lee-oh-oo, dee-oh, lee-oh-oo-dee-ee

Where thunderstorms roll by across the western sky
And the sun shines through to make me glad and merry
I'll live there until I die
Away out on the prairie

(Yodel) Eye-de oh-lo-oo, de-lee-oh-oo, dee-oh, lee-oh-oo-dee-ee

Where rattlesnakes coil and my lantern burn coal oil
And the dead cowboy in the ground we will bury
The prairie chicken I'll broil
Away out on the prairie

(Yodel) Eye-de oh-lo-oo, de-lee-oh-oo, dee-oh, lee-oh-oo-dee-ee

Where there ain't no falls and the lone whippoorwill calls
And they grow lots of corn, wheat, sorghum and barley
I'll live where there ain't no walls
Away out on the prairie

(Yodel) Eye-de oh-lo-oo, de-lee-oh-oo, dee-oh, lee-oh-oo-dee-ee

Well, I packed the saddle bags on my old gray nag
Bid farewell to Liza Jane, I couldn't tarry
Goin' where men are ragtag
Away out on the prairie
Little Buckaroo In The Big Corral (Larry W Jones 02/15/2017) (song #7045)

I grew up a wrangler and known as Cowboy Joe
A little buckaroo, I knew where I must go
Each morning at six, the breakfast chow iron would ring
A sleepy buckaroo would wake and do his thing

Little buckaroo grew to love the chapparal
He learned to groom his cayuse in the big corral
The cowboys helped him mount up on his saddle pal
I, the little buckaroo in the big corral  

Now, my job was sometimes hard but I loved to go
I shoveled horse biscuits in Summer and in snow
Many times I had to run, horses were not slow
Many times my hat was gone when the winds would blow

(Instrumental)

Little buckaroo grew to love the chapparal
He learned to groom his cayuse in the big corral
The cowboys helped him mount up on his saddle pal
I, the little buckaroo in the big corral

Some old cowboys still tell me as the years go by
That I was just a little chap but always spry
Sometimes I'm sad that things have changed before my eyes
Being in that big corral I will always prize

Little buckaroo grew to love the chapparal
He learned to groom his cayuse in the big corral
The cowboys helped him mount up on his saddle pal
I, the little buckaroo in the big corral
Today Is A Glad Glad Day For Me (Larry W Jones 02/15/2017) (song #7046)

Today is a glad glad day for me
I say it's a good good day I see
Darlin' walked my way, said she would stay
Today is a glad glad day for me

Today is a nice nice day for me
Birds of paradise are in the trees
I feel marvelous, yes, wonderous
Today is a glad glad day for me

All I see is happiness for me
Sad went away, she came by today
Said she'd wear my name eternally
Today is a glad glad day for me

(Instrumental)

Today is a glad glad day for me
Morning started with a sunny dawn
Worries are gone, I can carry on
Today is a glad glad day for me

Today is a glad glad day for me
I say it's a good good day I see
Darlin' walked my way, said she would stay
Today is a glad glad day for me
Dust Clouds On Horizon (Larry W Jones 02/15/2017) (song #7047)

I see dust clouds on horizon, dust storm is in the air
The Kansas wind is blowin', corn belt dust is everywhere
Better close the windows, dust will fill the cracks before long 
Dust clouds on horizon blowin' strong

I see dust bowl winds a-blowin', folks will be leavin' soon
I know just where they'll be goin', a California boom
Pack up the Model-A, the wife and kids must come along	
Dust clouds on horizon blowin' strong

Put the chicken coop together, those winds will make 'em fly
No chance for rainy weather, no dark rain clouds in the sky
Hurry and come along, Kansas no longer is our home
Dust clouds on horizon blowin' strong

(Instrumental)

I see dust clouds on horizon. dust storm is in the air
The Kansas wind is blowin', corn belt dust is everywhere
Better close the windows, dust will fill the cracks before long 
Dust clouds on horizon blowin' strong

I see dust bowl winds a-blowin', folks will be leavin' soon
I know just where they'll be goin', a California boom
Pack up the Model-A, the wife and kids must come along	
Dust clouds on horizon blowin' strong
Vintage Of The Vine (Larry W Jones 02/15/2017) (song #7048)

When times got hard I dropped my guard
The only prop that I could find
Was when love was gone, on my own
I drank the vintage of the vine

And as I fell into the well
Of life that crossed the border line
I met the wall of my great fall
Into the vintage of the vine

But one sweet miss saw through all this
And cleared the cobwebs from my mind
With love from her she wiped the blur
From that old vintage of the vine

(Instrumental)

But one sweet miss saw through all this
And cleared the cobwebs from my mind
With love from her she wiped the blur
From that old vintage of the vine

I'd had enough, the road was rough
She kindly helped me to unwind
And kept me strong through right and wrong
Back from the vintage of the vine

She kindly helped me to unwind
Back from the vintage of the vine
Little Dogies Kept Moving Along (Larry W Jones 02/19/2017) (song #7049)

Move along little dogies, move along
A Wyoming spread will be your new home

Now, we started out from old El Paso
Driving the herd with a yip and a song
Cowboys were yelling, cattle were lowing 
And little dogies kept moving along

Move along little dogies, move along
A Wyoming spread will be your new home

We stopped for the night to rest up our bones
In the campfire light we sang cowboy songs
And while the cows and dogies were sleeping
We thought of tomorrow and trails so long

(Instrumental)

Move along little dogies, move along
A Wyoming spread will be your new home

We pushed on by Denver on the Front Range
Seemed strange to be far from Texas so long
One more week, we'd be at Laramie Grange 		
And little dogies kept moving along

Move along little dogies, move along
A Wyoming spread will be your new home

We crossed the border below old Cheyenne
Turned to the West and North still going strong
Laramie welcomed the herd and each man
And little dogies kept moving along

Move along little dogies, move along
This Wyoming spread is now your new home
Gamble A Chance On Me (Larry W Jones 02/19/2017) (song #7050)

You lost your gamble with him
He left you so blue I see
You think your chances are slim
Just gamble a chance on me

Dear, I will be that someone
Whom you need so earnestly
Now, don't think love is not won
Just gamble a chance on me

Bet your heart and keep trying
And soon you will start to see
There's no reason for crying
Just gamble a chance on me

(Instrumental)

Yes, you can be a winner
Just gamble a chance on me
Let me take you to dinner
I'll show you how love can be

Don't be afraid of some spade
Or some sly Joker to flee
I'll be your King, you my maid
Just gamble a chance on me

True love is not just a hand
To shuffle and play with glee
Dear, your future will be grand
Just gamble a chance on me
Downstream Of The Bayou Bend (Larry W Jones 02/23/2017) (song #7051)
There's a pathway that takes me back to yesterday
And how often I have strayed to where I have been
Among the flowers there I renew my powers
It's like an old friend downstream of the bayou bend

I know it's just a memory that comes again
But a memory that I consider a friend
Downstream of the bayou bend I wander again
In mem'ry I stroll downstream by the bayou bend

(Instrumental)

Here in the present I see all troubles and trials
Some of them impossible to deal with and mend
But I know where to go for happiness and smiles
Along the pathway downstream of the bayou bend
I know it's just a memory that comes again
But a memory that I consider a friend
Downstream of the bayou bend I wander again
In mem'ry I stroll downstream by the bayou bend
Cowboy Now But A Cattleman Soon (Larry W Jones 02/22/2017) (song #7052)

(I'm just a cowboy now but a cattleman soon)

As a young cowboy he dreamed of owning a spread
Much bigger than the cabin where he lay his head
Just a lad of sixteen when he left on that day
Just a little note that he'd be gone far away

I'm just a cowboy now but a cattleman soon
I'm gonna own somehow a big ranch and the moon
I'm just a cowboy now but a cattleman soon
And when I return I'll be a big rich tycoon

Well, he went down to Texas and spent his last cent
But the foreman said son you're a lad with horse sense
You will be a Top Hand and a partner this Spring
I can tell by your work that a spread is your dream

I'm just a cowboy now but a cattleman soon
I'm gonna own somehow a big ranch and the moon
I'm just a cowboy now but a cattleman soon
And when I return I'll be a big rich tycoon

(Instrumental)

Only nineteen when he bought his first cows and bull
And it wasn't long before his pockets were full
The years went by with little thought of Mom and Dad
He was a cattleman with all that could be had

The pullman left the station with him in first class
He thought of Mom and Dad as the miles rolled on past
When he arrived there was no one to smile and wave
The old cowboy placed flowers on both of their graves

I'm just a cowboy now but a cattleman soon
I'm gonna own somehow a big ranch and the moon
I'm just a cowboy now but a cattleman soon
And when I return I'll be a big rich tycoon
Strong Coffee Weak Feeling (Larry W Jones 02/23/2017) (song #7053)

Strong coffee, weak feeling
Eggs fryin', I'm tryin' to survive
Strong feelin' that I'm now losin' you

Strong coffee, weak reason
One of us in treason, that is true 
Strong feelin' that I'm now losin' you

I won't try to explain
There's no way that I can understand
But it's so plain that I'm not your man

(Instrumental)

Strong coffee, strong grieving
Oh, I can see that you'll be leaving
Strong feelin' that I'm now losin' you

Strong coffee, lame answer
Around my questions you're a dancer
Strong feelin' that I'm now losin' you

Strong coffee, weak feeling
Eggs fryin', I'm tryin' to survive
Strong feelin' that I'm now losin' you

Strong coffee, weak feeling
Strong feelin' that I'm now losin' you
Blueberry Picking Time (Larry W Jones 02/23/2017) (song #7054)

Well, early Friday morning was a fine fine day
After packing my buckets I was on my way
Drove over to my darlin's place with so much charm
Said, honey let's go to Moorhead's Blueberry Farm

Well, she picked to the left and I picked to the right
We picked all mornin' till the sun was shinin' bright
Mister Moorhead could see that we were doin' fine
Pickin' up the pace at blueberry pickin' time

Today's blueberry pickin', blueberry pickin'
And it's almost better than a rhythm and rhyme
Yeah, it's blueberry pickin', blueberry pickin'
I'm a pacesetter at blueberry pickin' time

(Instrumental)

Well, I filled both of my buckets up to the brim
I looked through blueberry bushes and on a whim
I asked my little darlin' for a kiss like dew
But she told me, your fingers and your lips are blue

So, I kissed her anyway and she jumped and squealed
I knew our love was sealed in the blueberry field
I told her I loved her and that she was a catch
Can't to meet again in Moorhead's blueberry patch

Today's blueberry pickin', blueberry pickin'
And it's almost better than a rhythm and rhyme
Yeah, it's blueberry pickin', blueberry pickin'
I'm a pacesetter at blueberry pickin' time

Yeah, it's blueberry pickin', blueberry pickin' time
Blue Mandolin Waltz (Larry W Jones 02/23/2017) (song #7055)

On a dance floor in the Kentucky hills
Oh, she was one to adore forever
We fell in love to the mandolin trills
As we both danced arm in arm together

Blue mandolin waltz, blue mandolin waltz
We both recall that sweet dance in the Fall
And we've been together in all weather
Since the band played the Blue Mandolin Waltz

(Instrumental)

Now, once in a while I can't help but smile
When I play an old record from the vaults
We dance in the hall just like in that Fall
When the band played the Blue Mandolin Waltz

The Maiden's Prayer or Bob's old Faded Love
Takes us back to times of soda pop malts
And we take the time to recall our prime
When the band played the Blue Mandolin Waltz

And we take the time to recall our prime
When the band played the Blue Mandolin Waltz
Sad Lonely Summer (Larry W Jones 02/24/2017) (song #7056)

Sad lonely Summer
Sad lonely Summer days that last so long
Sad raindrops falling
Stalling my hope for a glad Summer song

There's no bluebonnets
They all died before Summer came along
Sad dried up flowers
Hours of wondering where did I go wrong

(Instrumental)

She must have taken
All the love that I found after we met
Sad lonely Summer
My only thoughts now are just sad regret

I'm in the middle
Of a big riddle I can't figure out
Sad lonely Summer
Of walking alone and doing without

Sad lonely Summer
Sad lonely Summer days that last so long
Sad raindrops falling
Stalling my hope for a glad Summer song
Night Shadows On Moonlight Trail (Larry W Jones 02/24/2017) (song #7057)

Slanting are shadows of night
The wind in cottonwoods light
Moonbeams shine through them so bright
Night shadows on Moonlight Trail

Bright is the moon in the sky
Riding is like through a veil
Nobody sees me ride by
Night shadows on Moonlight Trail

(Instrumental)

Drift on along night shadows
Shadows that are light and frail
Like words of a song composed
Night shadows on Moonlight Trail

Bright is the moon in the sky
Riding is like through a veil
Nobody sees me ride by
Night shadows on Moonlight Trail

Nobody sees me ride by
Night shadows on Moonlight Trail
Dreams Fell Down On Your Way Up (Larry W Jones 02/25/2017) (song #7058)

I was yours til something vile came and took away my smile
You're on a new found track and you're not even looking back
My poor heart was just your pup and love is now in breakup
You just threw it in the dump, dreams fell down on your way up

Dreams fell down on your way up, you were gone before sunup
I'll be blue for quite awhile, while you dress in fancy style
After drinking wine they serve you, some fine day you'll be blue
But I can tell by your snub, dreams fell down on your way up

(Instrumental)

Dreams fell down on your way up, you were gone before sunup
I'll be blue for quite awhile, while you dress in fancy style
After drinking wine they serve you, some fine day you'll be blue
But I can tell by your snub, dreams fell down on your way up

Somehow you changed, I know it's true, but I don't have a clue
As to why you changed your game, how I wish that it was plain
I drive in my pickup feeling deprived by this mix-up 
Well, I guess I'll just give up, dreams fell down on your way up
My Wasted Years (Larry W Jones 02/26/2017) (song #7059)

I was voted most likely to succeed
And I even believed it too
Never thought I'd be a person in need
But there were things I never knew

If you read the book of my life
Front to back the pages are rife
With nothing but sorrow and strife
Of my wasted years

(Instrumental)

I looked everywhere for true love
Never found the one I dreamed of
My life has been all give and shove
Here is what my life has become

If you read the book of my life
Front to back the pages are rife
With nothing but sorrow and strife
Of my wasted years

If you read the book of my life
It's my wasted years
Mister Gloom Keep Your Distance From Me (Larry W Jones 02/26/2017) (song #7060)

Mister Gloom, keep your distance from me
I've haven't much resistance, you see
And your persistence won't let me be

Love never found any room for me
I've been bound by loss and misery
Mister Gloom, keep your distance from me

Purpose in life has been a problem
Just like playing the fife so solemn
Gloominess is not my cup of tea

(Instrumental)

Purpose in life has been a problem
Just like playing the fife so solemn
Gloominess is not my cup of tea

Love never found any room for me
I've been bound by loss and misery
Mister Gloom, keep your distance from me

Mister Gloom, keep your distance from me
Lift Up My Head And Smile (Larry W Jones ) (song #)

My head was down like shadows in the valley of the isle
Darlin' had sailed to the mainland to stay for just awhile

I waited for months for her to sail back to our island shore
She stated that she would not fail, so who could ask for more

I went down to the harbor to watch ships come to the isle
Darlin' stood by the rail so I lift up my head and smile

She's like warm sun that shines through rain, lift up my head and smile
Lift up my head and smile again, lift up my head and smile

(Instrumental)

I went down to the harbor to watch ships come to the isle
Darlin' stood by the rail so I lift up my head and smile

She's like warm sun that shines through rain, lift up my head and smile
Lift up my head and smile again, lift up my head and smile

Darlin' stood by the rail so I lift up my head and smile
My Dream Climbed A Higher Hill (Larry W Jones 03/01/2017) (song #7062)

My dream climbed a higher hill and that's all I have to say
What she said was such a thrill, made my dream come true today
All the things I tried to do, she caused to be fulfilled
My world's no longer blue since my dream climbed a higher hill

I used to be the fall guy, I was never number one
Today I still wonder why and just how her love I won
I lived life without a plan, oh yes, but that was until
The dream of this happy man ran and climbed a higher hill

(Instrumental)

I used to be the fall guy, I was never number one
Today I still wonder why and just how her love I won
I lived life without a plan, oh yes, but that was until
The dream of this happy man ran and climbed a higher hill 

I'm glad she made up my mind that maybe true love could be
Not just something far behind but a newfound reality
At this time I'm doing fine and her love removes the chill
Today I'm inclined to say my dream climbed a higher hill

My dream climbed a higher hill
I Just Broke In A New Heartbreak (Larry W Jones 03/02/2017) (song #7063)

If anyone asks about me
Don't tell them that I have an ache
Cause I don't want them all to see
I just broke in a new heartbreak

It all started with just a crack
Then began to shiver and shake
More than once I've been down this track
I just broke in a new heartbreak

Why can't the blues leave me alone
The blues just turned my future black
All I can do is cry and groan
I just broke in a new heartbreak

(Instrumental)

It all started with just a crack
Then began to shiver and shake
More than once I've been down this track
I just broke in a new heartbreak

Why can't the blues leave me alone
The blues just turned my future black
All I can do is cry and groan
I just broke in a new heartbreak

I tried counting from one to ten
But then I stopped at number eight
There's too many to count again
I just broke in a new heartbreak
You're Behind My Peace Of Mind (Larry W Jones 03/02/2017) (song #7064)

My quest for peace of mind was somewhere behind me
I could only guess if someday love I would find
But then you came along to help and refine me
Keep this in mind dear, you're behind my peace of mind

I went without fingertips and sweet honey lips
I was convinced such things for me were not designed
Oh, so blind I was but in this I came to grips
Keep this in mind dear, you're behind my peace of mind

(Instrumental)

I went without fingertips and sweet honey lips
I was convinced such things for me were not designed
Oh, so blind I was but in this I came to grips
Keep this in mind dear, you're behind my peace of mind

Keep this in mind dear, you're behind my peace of mind
I find it now clear that hope and love can be aligned
With you, I'm in love deep and I no longer weep
Keep this in mind dear, you're behind my peace of mind

With you, I'm in love deep and I no longer weep
Keep this in mind dear, you're behind my peace of mind
You're behind my peace of mind
A Dollar Broken Down In Pennies (Larry W Jones 03/02/2017) (song #7065)

A dollar broken down in pennies might seem like a lot
But a penny's worth of love from  you is all that I got
A dollar counted up in pennies takes a lot of time
Like my penny dream of you that wasn't worth one thin dime

My poor heart you melted just like a snowball in the Spring
But by the time Summer came your love didn't mean a thing
Give me back my dollar so I can have some dough to spend
The kind of love you gave will take more than pennies to mend

All that I recall of a love I tried and tried to find
Is now just a penny for my thoughts when you're on my mind
A dollar broken down in pennies is like my heart feels
So, I guess I'll spend these pennies on a new love that's real

(Instrumental)

My poor heart you melted just like a snowball in the Spring

Is now just a penny for my thoughts when you're on my mind
A dollar broken down in pennies is like my heart feels
So, I guess I'll spend these pennies on a new love that's real

A dollar broken down in pennies is like my heart feels
Foggy Foggy Street (Larry W Jones 03/02/2017) (song #7066)

Last Thursday was a dreary day downtown
A bleary misty day and overcast
At lunch I went outside and walked around
While wishing that the day would soon be past

I took a walk down foggy foggy street
On my face a frown and my heart was blue
And as I walked down foggy foggy street
I saw you and the sun came shining through

It was then I realized of myself
I needed love but love was on the shelf
Until I wound up where the skies turned blue
On foggy foggy street where I found you

(Instrumental)

I took a walk down foggy foggy street
On my face a frown and my heart was blue
And as I walked down foggy foggy street
I saw you and the sun came shining through

It was then I realized of myself
I needed love but love was on the shelf
Until I wound up where the skies turned blue
On foggy foggy street where I found you

On foggy foggy street where I found you
Call Me Mister Left Behind (Larry W Jones 03/04/2017) (song #7067)

Now, I'm too old for ridin', too old for ropin'
My days are right now slidin' into just copin'
And now I find the path ahead downward slopin'
Call me Mister Left Behind

I still watch all those cowboys on the silver screen
On my little black 'n white television scene
Those black 'n white hats still beat all I've ever seen
Call me Mister Left Behind

The Overland stage coach still stops at the station
And runnin' from outlaws in the Indian Nation
Oh, I give my grandkids lots of agitation
Call me Mister Left Behind

(Instrumental)

I dialed my old Philco to the Grand Ole Opry
But that new country music sounded ungodly
There was no steel guitar and singin' was sloppy
Call me Mister Left Behind

Now, my old Buick's two barrel carburetor
Goes uphill but overheats the radiator
And I don't have no new GPS locator
Call me Mister Left Behind

I'm like an ocean sailor full of salty brine
Sometimes I lick all of my fingers when I dine
Now, I know I ain't much but I'm a-doin' fine
Call me Mister Left Behind

Now, I know I ain't much but I'm a-doin' fine
Call me Mister Left Behind
I'll Take What's Left (Larry W Jones 03/05/2017) (song #7068)

I'll take what's left if he's not right for you
I came late but my love for you is true
I can wait forever if I have to
I'll take what's left if he's not right for you

I'll take what's left if he makes you cry, dear
I don't care if it takes a hundred years
I hope you understand that I'm your man
I'll take what's left if he's not right for you

(Instrumental)
 
Oh, I left all my dreams of love behind
I wondered why my stars would not align
Remember, if he ever makes you blue
I'll take what's left if he's not right for you

I see that all he sees is using you
Dear, I beg you please don't just let it be
The door to my heart will open on cue
I'll take what's left if he's not right for you
Roaming Wyoming (Larry W Jones 03/06/2017) (song #7069)

Tomorrow in the gloaming
I'll be roaming Wyoming in the morning
And nothing could be better
For weather doesn't call for any warning
When I'm roaming Wyoming in the morning

Where grass reflects the dewdrops
And sage covers all the land
Where the deer graze on hilltops
And a cowboy is a man

Riding along with my pals
We'll be roaming Wyoming in the morning 
We'll be thinking of our gals
Dressed in calico they look so charming
While we're roaming Wyoming in the morning

Now, I would just like to say
All cowboys are born to roam
But they'll return home one day 
From their roaming Wyoming

(Instrumental)

Where grass reflects the dewdrops
And sage covers all the land
Where the deer graze on hilltops
And a cowboy is a man

Riding along with my pals
We'll be roaming Wyoming in the morning 
We'll be thinking of our gals
Dressed in calico they look so charming
While we're roaming Wyoming in the morning

Now, I would just like to say
All cowboys are born to roam
But they'll return home one day 
From their roaming Wyoming
Front Range Cowboy Fiddle (Larry W Jones 03/06/2017) (song #7070)

When the fast Zephyr pulled into Denver
In the station he stood in the middle
Tourists dropped in his case legal tender
While he played his front range cowboy fiddle

He would play Bob Wills' Cherokee Maiden
To count the money he wouldn't diddle
Then a tune about love that was fadin'
He played on his front range cowboy fiddle

The old cowboy played until the Zephyr
Left Denver departing like a missile
Then he closed up his case made of leather
Drank wine with his front range cowboy fiddle

(Instrumental)

Drank wine with his front range cowboy fiddle
Headwaters Of The Rio Colorado (Larry W Jones 03/06/2017) (song #7071)

Well, my leavin' might be the start of grievin'
For me as well as you and all of our dreams
But by this time tomorrow I'll be weavin'
My way along the western slope far upstream

It snows in September and lasts til July
No place for man except the desperado
There is where I might just be until I die
Headwaters of the Rio Colorado

Well, this time I know it's gonna be for good
I'll build a cabin in a lonely hollow
Forget about you when I'm in that no good
Headwaters of the Rio Colorado

(Instrumental)

It snows in September and lasts til July
No place for man except the desperado
There is where I might just be until I die
Headwaters of the Rio Colorado

Forget about you when I'm in that no good
Headwaters of the Rio Colorado

There is where I might just be until I die
Headwaters of the Rio Colorado
Valley Of Cimarron (Larry W Jones 03/06/2017) (song #7072)

New Mexico is a land where enchantment is so grand
And there's a valley that could not be made by human hand
The Valley of Cimarron was where I saw newborn fawn
I awake each dawn to ride the Valley of Cimarron

Once in awhile when I feel blue the sun comes shining through
Cliffs in the Valley of Cimarron show a golden hue
There is no ocean but purple sage looks like waves I've known
I've grown to love this life in the Valley of Cimarron

As I ride on the trail through the Valley of Cimarron
I sing a song, a cowboy tale, of life where I was drawn
And as I ride along the way where skies are rarely gray
The Valley of Cimarron whispers that here I must stay

(Instrumental)

Once in awhile when I feel blue the sun comes shining through

I sing a song, a cowboy tale, of life where I was drawn
And as I ride along the way where skies are rarely gray
The Valley of Cimarron whispers that here I must stay

Yes, I must stay and live in the Valley of Cimarron
Class Of Sixty Three (Larry W Jones 03/07/2017) (song #7073)

Well, I took a trip to my hometown
The class reunion was fancy free
I tried to smile just to hide a frown
I was their star, class of sixty three

I recalled my first banana split
At the corner drugstore I still see
I liked the waitress more, I'll admit
When I was in class of sixty three

Voted the most likely to succeed
They all thought that I was big indeed
They don't know about my shantytown
I'm still their star, class of sixty three

(Instrumental)

Well, thank you old pal, I'm doing fine
How about you, are you fancy free
I just had to come home one more time
To meet my old class of sixty three

I recalled my first banana split
At the corner drugstore I still see
I liked the waitress more, I'll admit
When I was in class of sixty three

Voted the most likely to succeed
They all thought that I was big indeed
They don't know about my shantytown
I'm still their star, class of sixty three
Club Of Losers Homecoming Game (Larry W Jones 03/08/2017) (song #7074)

A grouping of singles stand side by side
Sad looks on their faces that they can't hide
They're all of ill gain and filled up with pain
At the club of losers homecoming game

We all shake hands and wish each other well
Steak and potatoes at the dinner bell
Some are sleep walkers, others fast talkers
At the club of losers homecoming game

We sign the guest book and read all the names
Some have the look that another's to blame
The club of losers in love is a shame
At the club of losers homecoming game

(Instrumental)

We all shake hands and wish each other well
Steak and potatoes at the dinner bell
Some are sleep walkers, others fast talkers

We sign the guest book and read all the names
Some have the look that another's to blame
The club of losers in love is a shame
At the club of losers homecoming game

We sign the guest book and read all the names
Some have the look that another's to blame
The club of losers in love is a shame
At the club of losers homecoming game
Old San Angelo Waltz (Larry W Jones 03/08/2017) (song #7075)

There's a dancehall cowboys know
And that's where I long to go
To dance once more old San Angelo Waltz
I love to hear the band play
Where the big cottonwoods sway
To the tune of old San Angelo Waltz

Oh, they waltz in Kentucky
And Tennessee is lovely
But I'll dance the old San Angelo Waltz
Hearts are light in West Texas
Stars are like a bright necklace
Where they dance the old San Angelo Waltz

The Concho River flows by
Breeze whispers a lover's sigh
The moon smiles on old San Angelo Waltz
So, before long I must roam
To my San Angelo home
And dance to the old San Angelo Waltz

(Instrumental)

Oh, they waltz in Kentucky
And Tennessee is lovely
But I'll dance the old San Angelo Waltz
Hearts are light in West Texas
Stars are like a bright necklace
Where they dance the old San Angelo Waltz

The Concho River flows by
Breeze whispers a lover's sigh
The moon smiles on old San Angelo Waltz
So, before long I must roam
To my San Angelo home
And dance to the old San Angelo Waltz

And dance to the old San Angelo Waltz
Come Ride In My Boots For Awhile (Larry W Jones 03/08/2017) (song #7076)

If trail you're on isn't where you belong
Come ride in my boots for awhile
If the song you sing has a lonely ring 
Come ride in my boots for awhile

I tried to live in her world of just give 
But I could not afford her style
If your love has failed, follow down my trail
Come ride in my boots for awhile

Sad tears I once cried but now I just ride
Slowly on the trail of exile
If it's agreed that your heart is in need
Come ride in my boots for awhile

(Instrumental)

If your eyes see demise of the lonely
And your only hope is denial
Then follow me through weeping willow trees
Come ride in my boots for awhile

I tried to live in her world of just give 
But I could not afford her style
If your love has failed, follow down my trail
Come ride in my boots for awhile

Sad tears I once cried but now I just ride
Slowly on the trail of exile
If it's agreed that your heart is in need
Come ride in my boots for awhile
Can We Be Partners In Life's Dance (Larry W Jones 03/09/2017) (song #7077)

Well, you turned your face to the wind and your back to the sun
Leave your lost love behind but don't leave your eyes closed and blind
And just in case you need a friend make a track to this one
My interest you will find is perceived by true love designed 

Dear, I know how bitter you are
But there's a glitter of a chance
That I can help to heal your scars
Can we be partners in life's dance

You won't have to go it alone
Cause I will promise in advance
My love will be the best you've known	
Can we be partners in life's dance

(Instrumental)

You won't have to go it alone
Cause I will promise in advance
My love will be the best you've known	
Can we be partners in life's dance

Waltzing through life without the strife
On me I beg you take a chance
Hold my hand as husband and wife
Can we be partners in life's dance

Can we be partners in life's dance

Cowboy Cowpoke (Larry W Jones 03/10/2017) (song #7078)

Well, she showed me a picture of her place
Said she lived at the end of Royal Trace
The driveway live oak trees looked really old
And the iron gate was colored yellow gold

So, I pulled out my billfold with the hole
Showed her a picture of all I controlled
That's what it looked like before it was sold
Her big world and mine hardly ever spoke

I told her I'm just a cowboy cowpoke
And I ain't what she thought she knew of me
These fancy duds I wear is just a joke
A cowboy cowpoke is my destiny

(Instrumental)

I told her I'm just a cowboy cowpoke
And I ain't what she thought she knew of me
These fancy duds I wear is just a joke
A cowboy cowpoke is my destiny

I own one sway back Appaloosa mare
The only horse I've had since I went broke
Sorry M'am but I'll never be your fare
I'll forever be a cowboy cowpoke

Sorry M'am but I'll never be your fare
I'll forever be a cowboy cowpoke
A cowboy cowpoke, cowboy cowpoke
Bungalow On The Bayou (Larry W Jones 03/10/2017) (song #7079)

	There's an old bungalow on the bayou
The clapboard planks are made of seasoned birch
On that old bungalow on the bayou
Is a welcome mat on the wooden porch

His Cajun mom and dad named Thibodeaux
Waited for their son who was gone so long
He left home one morning on his pirogue
A Cajun boy now gone so far from home

Well, it's been so many years he left them
There were many things he just had to see
A Zydeco band he joined on the whim
With an old banjo he played on his knee

(Instrumental)

Days in that bungalow on the bayou
Turned into many months and then long years
Nights in that bungalow on the bayou
Were filled with longing and many shed tears

Old man Thibodeaux is tired and weary
The swamps have taken their toll on his age
Old Mom Thibodeaux's eyes have gone bleary
Bungalow on the bayou is a cage

They still hunt the rabbit and the possum
Surviving many hurricanes that blew
Still hoping that their wish would soon blossom
At their son's bungalow on the bayou

Still hoping that their wish would soon blossom
At their son's bungalow on the bayou
Teardrops Dropped By Today (Larry W Jones 03/11/2017) (song #7080)

Today some old acquaintances dropped by
To see if I'm getting along OK
I welcomed them in and tried not to cry
When some of my teardrops dropped by today

I'm told one little tear can't hurt a lot
At least that's what I've been told anyway
But that one little thought someone forgot
When some of my teardrops dropped by today

I counted my old pals inside the door
They said that they wouldn't prolong their stay
I told them don't worry about the floor
When some of my teardrops dropped by today

(Instrumental)

I counted my old pals inside the door
They said that they wouldn't prolong their stay
I told them don't worry about the floor
When some of my teardrops dropped by today

I stopped counting each teardrop as it fell
Cause I knew I would lose count anyway
Love was gone, my acquaintances could tell
When some of my teardrops dropped by today
Bucking And Busting At The Rodeo (Larry W Jones 03/11/2017) (song #7081)

Well, I came from the city, used to live downtown
But then I got real gritty, now put on a show
I turned into a cowboy, now bring the house down
With my bucking and busting at the rodeo

My Levis are of denim, Stetson brand of hat
I'm in it for the money, winning lots of dough
Those saddles when I'm in'm know eight seconds flat 
With my bucking and busting at the rodeo

(Instrumental)

Well, I rolled into Houston, no one did I know
I drew bronco number five, cowboy-up to go
I got bucked and busted bad, that was my last show
No more bucking and busting at the rodeo

I went back to the city, started work downtown
I know it's sure a pity, life is kinda slow
But at least I'm alive, no rodeo clown
Like my bucking and busting at the rodeo

But at least I'm alive, no rodeo clown
Like my bucking and busting at the rodeo
Raised On Sunny Country Days (Larry W Jones 03/11/2017) (song #	7082)

Well, when I met her I tried to get her
But she was wary of my city ways
I tried my best but she would not concur
Cause she was raised on sunny country days

Yeah, she was raised on sunny country days
Contented with her simple country ways
Barn dance on Friday, cowgirl on display
Oh, she was raised on sunny country days

(Instrumental)

I tried to be her prince but she would wince
At just the thought of city smog and haze
To catch her gaze I'd have to change my ways 
Cause she was raised on sunny country days

I moved out of town, put knee on the ground
Asked her hand if I'd be her country man
She said of course, then you I can endorse
Cause she was raised on sunny country days

She said of course, then you I can endorse
Cause she was raised on sunny country days
Sweet Irene (Larry W Jones 03/12/2017) (song #7083)

Once a handsome cowboy who had an eye so keen
Fell in love with a cowgirl with bright eyes of green
He promised her a wedding like she'd never seen
Then one day a quarrel broke his vow to sweet Irene

The handsome cowboy rode out to join some wranglers
Most of them were good of soul and some were manglers
On the cattle trail so green he thought of Irene
He wondered how she was with her bright eyes of green

One evening round the campfire at the end of day
The cowboys asked him if he would his guitar play
When he started playing the firelight seemed serene
A mistake he had made by leaving sweet Irene

Cowboys could tell when he was done that he felt blue
Must be a cowgirl waiting down the trail for you
The lonely cowboy told them at the dying flame
All about Irene and he knew he was to blame

At dawn he saddled up for the trail back to town
The cowboys tried to cheer him up and not to frown
When he arrived the men in town took him to see
The grave she was buried in for eternity

They said young man your true love waited here for you
And we think she died when her heart broke right in two
The cowboy grieved that he was late upon the scene
Sorrow fell as tears on the grave of sweet Irene
Goodtime Cowboy (Larry W Jones 03/13/2017) (song #7084)

I'm saddled with lonesome but I'm riding with joy
Everybody knows me as the goodtime cowboy
From Reno to Abilene and places between
All faces I've seen call me the goodtime cowboy

From the day I was born I lived the rodeo
My Levis are worn and my pearl-snap shirt has holes
To the livestock show in Houston I will convoy
Clock eight seconds saddled as the goodtime cowboy

Well, maybe I'll meet up with a filly or two
But when both my feet walk I'll leave both of them blue
I'm saddled with lonesome but I'm riding with joy
Everybody knows me as the goodtime cowboy

(Instrumental)

From the day I was born I lived the rodeo
My Levis are worn and my pearl-snap shirt has holes
To the livestock show in Houston I will convoy
Clock eight seconds saddled as the goodtime cowboy

Well, maybe I'll meet up with a filly or two
But when both my feet walk I'll leave both of them blue
I'm saddled with lonesome but I'm riding with joy
Everybody knows me as the goodtime cowboy

I'm saddled with lonesome but I'm riding with joy
Everybody knows me as the goodtime cowboy
Charlene Donnay (Larry W Jones 03/13/2017) (song #7085)

Well, they say he talks like he's lost his mind
He repeats her name as Charlene Donnay
Someone came to dance, she left him behind
His mind is in a trance from chardonnay

An old love song sure will make him unwind
As he takes a new drink of chardonnay
He holds onto the bottle that's designed
To remind him of sweet Charlene Donnay

Come and dance Charlene, to our old love song
That's what he says night and day anyway
He knows somebody done somebody wrong
But he won't blame it on Charlene Donnay

(Instrumental)

Come and dance Charlene, to our old love song
That's what he says night and day anyway
He knows somebody done somebody wrong
But he won't blame it on Charlene Donnay

Now, he puts a quarter in the jukebox
To hear his favorite love record play
He drinks chardonnay straight or on the rocks
And thinks about his sweet Charlene Donnay

He drinks chardonnay straight or on the rocks
And thinks about his sweet Charlene Donnay
And thinks about his sweet Charlene Donnay
And thinks about his sweet Charlene Donnay
Maiden Of The Muscadine (Larry W Jones 03/13/2017) (song #7086)

Even a man who's blind knows when the curtain falls
He's now certain that she was not the faithful kind 
The muscadine grape is sweet and to him it calls	
He reaches for the maiden of the muscadine

His happiness is gone to somewhere far away
Like an old song forgotten that no more will shine
There's no tomorrow that will be as yesterday
His new love is the maiden of the muscadine

But forgetfulness will soon soothe that troubled man
As the wine tries to erase that line in his time  
It's almost a healing from dealing with some plan
Time's better with the maiden of the muscadine

(Instrumental)

His sorrow is like a trip on a sinking ship
When the only life boat has left him far behind
Or when an eagle is grounded with his wings clipped
He grips the glass of maiden of the muscadine

His happiness is gone to somewhere far away
Like an old song forgotten that no more will shine
There's no tomorrow that will be as yesterday
His new love is the maiden of the muscadine

His happiness is gone to somewhere far away
Like an old song forgotten that no more will shine
There's no tomorrow that will be as yesterday
His new love is the maiden of the muscadine
The Man In The Moon Rose From Texas (Larry W Jones 03/14/2017) (song #7087)

Well, the man in the moon rose from Texas
I know because I see him every night
He wears a ten gallon hat on his head
And he spreads his love with moonbeams so bright

Yes, the man in the moon rose from Texas
He says howdy to each star in his zone
Oh, the man in the moon rose from Texas
And he lights up the rose of San Antone

That trail boss in the air has quite a flare
He rises with the moon without a care
Yes, the man in the moon rose from Texas
I saw him rise in June when I was there

(Instrumental)

He rises above to spread down his love
On all Texans when fiddles start to play
Oh, the man in the moon rose from Texas
Texans give him a big yip, yip hooray

That trail boss in the air has quite a flare
He rises with the moon without a care
Yes, the man in the moon rose from Texas
I saw him rise in June when I was there

Well, the man in the moon rose from Texas
Oh, the man in the moon rose from Texas
Yes, the man in the moon rose from Texas
Texans give him a big yip, yip hooray
Drifting Down The Dreams Of No Return (Larry W Jones 03/15/2017) (song #7088)

That cabin is just a shack as I go drifting back in my dreams
But it will forever in my memory burn
That shanty cabin is where I was born and I'm still there it seems
As I go drifting down the dreams of no return

How often the times I go drifting down the dreams of no return
To the path I trod along the stream's willow trees
The sunshine I felt on my back makes me want to pick up my pack
Just to go drifting down the dreams of no return

I remember Mama when she was old and gray in the doorway
Telling me it was time to milk the cow and churn
Her smile I recall as she skimmed off the cream for butter and whey
As I go drifting down the dreams of no return

(Instrumental)

My memories are like shadows of twilight but still shining bright
And I can vision that forever they will burn
As an answer to my prayer that I never forget living there
As I go drifting down the dreams of no return

How often the times I go drifting down the dreams of no return
To the path I trod along the stream's willow trees
The sunshine I felt on my back makes me want to pick up my pack
Just to go drifting down the dreams of no return

The sunshine I felt on my back makes me want to pick up my pack
Just to go drifting down the dreams of no return
Drifting down the dreams of no return
Drifting down the dreams of no return
Rodeo Road (Larry W Jones 03/15/2017) (song #7089)

Well, I met her one sunny day in Spring
And she said she sure liked the songs I sing
I showed her my trophy buckle of gold
I won in eight seconds of rodeo

She knew the rodeo was coming soon
We would be wed the coming full moon June
But the rodeo road was way too long
Another man came and sung his love song

My memory rides back down the rodeo road
When my thoughts wander there under a heavy load
This trophy buckle looks tarnished instead of gold 
I lost her when I rode down the rodeo road

(Instrumental)

When I drive to an old familiar place
Hauling my saddle, I'm still in the chase
Trying to make a name without a care
But without the girl I left way back there

My memory rides back down the rodeo road
When my thoughts wander there under a heavy load
This trophy buckle looks tarnished instead of gold 
I lost her when I rode down the rodeo road

My memory rides back down the rodeo road
When my thoughts wander there under a heavy load
This trophy buckle looks tarnished instead of gold 
I lost her when I rode down the rodeo road
Doggone Clackety Train (Larry W Jones 03/16/2017) (song #7090)

My darlin' went to the depot and hopped on a clackety train
She said she was headed northbound and would never return again
Didn't see no wave goodbye or tears streaming down from her blue eyes
That doggone clackety train went north clacking on those railroad ties

That doggone clackety train
Left me here alone and blue
No southbound clackety train
Will bring her back to me soon

The engineer pushed the throttle and that clackety train was gone
It disappeared around the bend and I could hear that whistle moan
Then I saw a note she dropped and read it with tears in both my eyes
All it said was goodbye Joe, I'm on this train to another guy

(Instrumental)

Up At The Summit Of A Mended Heart (Larry W Jones 03/16/2017) (song #7091)

Once I was alone and blue to the bone
I was deep in a valley of despair
Then she came along and now love has grown
Just like a tall mountain since she's been here

I feel like I'm at a mountain summit
In love with a girl and a brand new start
On the mend, a new love song, I hum it 
Up at the summit of a mended heart

Up at the summit of a mended heart
I carved her sweet name on a sweetheart tree
Up at the summit of a mended heart
She gave a new start for eternity

(Instrumental)

I feel like I'm at a mountain summit

On the mend, a new love song, I hum it 
Up at the summit of a mended heart

Up at the summit of a mended heart
She gave a new start for eternity

On the mend, a new love song, I hum it 
Up at the summit of a mended heart
Up at the summit of a mended heart
At The Start Of Memory Lane (Larry W Jones 03/16/2017) (song #7092)

Some songs end down memory lane
With something that he or she said
Those songs always end in much pain
With a true love that now is dead

At the start of memory lane
You and I walked there in gladness
We strolled hand in hand in the rain
And we never once had sadness

The love we have is what we had
At the start of memory lane
And both of us are oh, so glad
It's still so strong through all the rain

(Instrumental)

I remember young eyes of blue
And such a very pretty face
Though I'm now aged and so are you
We both have smiles upon our face

The love we have is what we had
At the start of memory lane
And both of us are oh, so glad
It's still so strong through all the rain

The love we have is what we had
At the start of memory lane
River Of Regret (Larry W Jones 03/16/2017) (song #7093)

She met him by the river of regret
Misguided and confused as he could get
She cleared his mind and said let's take a chance
To drift along the river of romance

He became her dream like a stream so deep
She felt her love was something he would keep 
But little did she know it had a fork
Which way would he go with her loving heart

Warm days along the river where they met
Were like the rapid ways of lovers flame
But how quickly those lovers ways became
A shiver on the river of regret

(Instrumental)

Warm days along the river where they met
Were like the rapid ways of lovers flame
But how quickly those lovers ways became
A shiver on the river of regret

One day he told her of his wayward life
He would never settle down with a wife
She knew she had lost her chance on a bet
He left her by the river of regret

She cleared his mind and said let's take a chance
To drift along the river of romance
She knew she had lost her chance on a bet
He left her by the river of regret
Outwest Cowboy (Larry W Jones 03/17/2017) (song #7094)

When the sun rose in Providence I was convinced to leave
Cause Rhode Island was too far East and all I did was grieve
So I decided to head back to the West, thank you M'am
There ain't no Eastern trail for the outwest cowboy I am

Drove my pickup to St Paul to see all there was to see
But I never got stuck in Minnesota, no sir'ee
I pointed my pickup West fast as I could make it scram
There ain't no Northern trail for the outwest cowboy I am

(Instrumental)

I took a big paddle wheeler South down the Big Muddy
A slick willie card dealer proved not to be my buddy
So I took a freight train West from New Orleans on the lam
There ain't no Southern trail for the outwest cowboy I am

Well, I found out the hard way I cain't stay East, North or South
There's just somethin' about 'em that don't taste good in my mouth
Now I'm out here where the West is Best and life ain't no sham
There's lots of Western trails for the outwest cowboy I am
Back In The Backwoods (Larry W Jones 03/17/2017) (song #7095)

Way back in the backwoods where I came from
There ain't much good that comes from bein' born
In the city you found out where you stood
The same ground as way back in the backwoods

Way back in the backwoods there ain't a chance
To meet someone fair who would seek romance
Met a girl but couldn't give her a whirl
Her Dad just said go back in the backwoods

Now, one of these fine days I want to gaze
Upon the ways of high society
Oh, but as for me now it's understood
I'll work the plow way back in the backwoods

(Instrumental)

Way back in the backwoods there ain't a chance

Now, one of these fine days I want to gaze
Upon the ways of high society
Oh, but as for me now it's understood
I'll work the plow way back in the backwoods

Oh, but as for me now it's understood
I'll work the plow way back in the backwoods
Way back in the backwoods
Back in the backwoods
Don't Exclude Me (Larry W Jones 03/18/2017) (song #7096)

Don't exclude me from your exclusive hold
Darling, include me in warm arms you fold
I need you more than ever when it's cold
Don't exclude me from your exclusive hold
 
Don't exclude me from your exclusive kiss
My darling, to do so would be amiss
No other lips could be better than this
Don't exclude me from your exclusive kiss

Now, there's a strong incoming tide running
My deep love for you please don't be shunning
I would welcome your arms toward me unfurled
Don't exclude me from your exclusive world

(Instrumental)

Now, there's a strong incoming tide running
My deep love for you please don't be shunning
I would welcome your arms toward me unfurled
Don't exclude me from your exclusive world

Don't exclude me from your exclusive vow
To say I do beneath a flowered bough
Please include me in what I'm dreaming of
Don't exclude me from your exclusive love

Please include me in what I'm dreaming of
Don't exclude me from your exclusive love
Don't Leave Love's Leftovers For Me (Larry W Jones 03/19/2017) (song #7097)

You say that it's over and done
Of my love you want to have none
If love should haunt your memory
Don't leave love's leftovers for me

It's hard to think that we are through
Now all that's left is colored blue
You'll walk right over love carefree
Don't leave love's leftovers for me

I thought you were happy at heart
How did we draw so far apart
Where was the flaw I didn't see
Don't leave love's leftovers for me

(Instrumental)

It's hard to think that we are through
Now all that's left is colored blue
You'll walk right over love carefree
Don't leave love's leftovers for me

I thought you were happy at heart
How did we draw so far apart
Where was the flaw I didn't see
Don't leave love's leftovers for me

Where was the flaw I didn't see
Don't leave love's leftovers for me
A Wild Irish Rose Rosie (Larry W Jones 03/20/2017) (song #7098)

First of all I recall Spring of our prime
When her words sounded like music and rhyme
She said, I Do, to a life that was new
Rosie and I knew our love would be true

Next of all I recall when things went wrong
I would sing to Rosie a sweet love song
Rosie, I'd say, I love you anyway
And I will until my own dying day 

I'll bring you a wild Irish rose, Rosie
I'll bring you a wild Irish rose, my love
Each day, in Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring
A new wild Irish rose, Rosie, I'll bring

We strolled hand in hand in early evening
For years as the seasons went rolling by
My love for Rose never knew any lows	  	
The green of her eyes said all I would prize

Sometimes as we strolled along the pathway
I'd feel a song coming on and I'd say
Rosie, now we've been together so long
In all kinds of weather, this is my song

I'll bring you a wild Irish rose, Rosie
I'll bring you a wild Irish rose, my love
Each day, in Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring
A new wild Irish rose, Rosie, I'll bring

And I recall in the Spring of our prime
When her words sounded like music and rhyme
Now I stroll down the path in the evening
As I have as seasons go rolling by

At the end of the path in the cool shade
Is the place of age's wrath and the grave
Rosie, now we were together so long
In all kinds of weather, this is my song

I'll bring you a wild Irish rose, Rosie
I'll bring you a wild Irish rose, my love
Each day, in Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring
A new wild Irish rose, Rosie, I'll bring

I'll bring you a wild Irish rose, Rosie
I'll bring you a wild Irish rose
Once You've Thought About It Twice (Larry W Jones 03/21/2017) (song #7099)

Come on home once you've thought about it twice
You ought to board that train is my advice
The door I'll unlock, through it you can walk 
It's no chore once you've thought about it twice

Darling, since you went I've spent nights awake
This empty house is more than I can take
I doused my pride dear, and I've paid the price
Come on home once you've thought about it twice

Dear, I confess that I still love you so
And I'd be blessed to know our love can grow
Trust me once more and life will be like spice
Come on home once you've thought about it twice

(Instrumental)

Darling, since you went I've spent nights awake
This empty house is more than I can take
I doused my pride dear, and I've paid the price
Come on home once you've thought about it twice

Dear, I confess that I still love you so
And I'd be blessed to know our love can grow
Trust me once more and life will be like spice
Come on home once you've thought about it twice

Trust me once more and life will be like spice
Come on home once you've thought about it twice
Is It Wrong To Be Right After All (Larry W Jones 03/22/2017) (song #7100)

I knew it was over as she packed up to go
She took a right turn and walked down the hall
I could see it all coming and I felt it so
So, is it wrong to be right after all

Oh, I thought I was smart because I saw it all
She said she would never come back again
It wasn't long before love would find ways to fall
So, is it wrong to be right after all

(Instrumental)

Oh, I thought I was smart because I saw it all
She said she would never come back again
It wasn't long before love would find ways to fall
So, is it wrong to be right after all

Oh, I thought I was smart because I saw it all
She said she would never come back again
It wasn't long before love would find ways to fall
So, is it wrong to be right after all

It wasn't long before love would find ways to fall
So, is it wrong to be right after all
