Suckin' Them Suds (Larry W Jones 03/23/2017) (song#7101)
 
This morning I met face to face
With a man so full of disgrace
I stared at him as he stared back
Both of us looked ready to crack

Oh, suckin' them suds for breakfast
A six-pack of Buds that won't last
The face in the mirror looked old
From chasing a dream that's gone cold

I told the face in the mirror
Suckin' suds won't bring her nearer
Them Buds will just bring you more pain
He said, pop me one more again

(Instrumenal)

Well, I wanted to clear the air
All about his old love affair
So, I told him, now listen bud
You lost her from suckin' them suds

Oh, suckin' them suds for breakfast
A six-pack of Buds that won't last
The face in the mirror looked old
From chasing a dream that's gone cold

I told the face in the mirror
Suckin' suds won't bring her nearer
Them Buds will just bring you more pain
He said, pop me one more again
Soundtrack Of Railroad Tracks (Larry W Jones 03/25/2017) (song #7102)

My darlin' packed her case today and went away
Oh, and she didn't say just where she's gonna stay
I heard her say, now Jack, I won't be coming back
So, you can play that jukebox song of railroad tracks 

Play that soundtrack of railroad tracks she's rolling on
The one that sounds just like she's gone and done me wrong
My heart for her burns but she's on the tracks of no return
Play that soundtrack of railroad tracks she's rolling on

(Instrumental)

Now, I don't know just what it was I went and did
But when I came home late she went and flipped her lid
She was on an outbound track and laid down the law
Said something about a straw, then about her Ma

Play that soundtrack of railroad tracks she's rolling on
The one that sounds just like she's gone and done me wrong
My heart for her burns but she's on the tracks of no return
Play that soundtrack of railroad tracks she's rolling on

My heart for her burns but she's on the tracks of no return
Play that soundtrack of railroad tracks she's rolling on
Bare Billfold And Her Empty Fools Gold Heart (Larry W Jones 03/26/2017) (song #7103)

Well, she could barely keep her hands off my billfold
I could barely keep my mind off this work of art
I was looking for gold but her I couldn't hold
With my bare billfold and her empty fools gold heart

I was delayed in seeing through her every move
Til I was belayed and found my dream torn apart
She asked me for more but that I could not approve
With my bare billfold and her empty fools gold heart

If she had rarely kept her hands on my billfold
Then I could have carried out my dream's every part 
But she was the smart one and I'm left in the cold 
With my bare billfold and her empty fools gold heart

(Instrumental)

I was delayed in seeing through her every move
Til I was belayed and found my dream torn apart
She asked me for more but that I could not approve
With my bare billfold and her empty fools gold heart

If she had rarely kept her hands on my billfold
Then I could have carried out my dream's every part 
But she was the smart one and I'm left in the cold 
With my bare billfold and her empty fools gold heart

Yeah, she was the smart one and I'm left in the cold 
With my bare billfold and her empty fools gold heart
Facing My Back Against The Wall (Larry W Jones 03/26/2017) (song #7104)

I feel like I'm facing my back against the wall
Cause my love life is looking black and that ain't all
I can face feeling blue but not in losing you
I feel like I'm facing my back against the wall

I took you here for romance and a dance or two
Then across the floor walked a man that you once knew
Now, I couldn't place him but he looked lean and tall
I feel like I'm facing my back against the wall

You looked his way and I saw your eyes twinkle bright
I didn't know what to say but stars fell that night
My face turned white as I backed up and saw it all
I feel like I'm facing my back against the wall

(Instrumental)

I took you here for romance and a dance or two

Now, I couldn't place him but he looked lean and tall
I feel like I'm facing my back against the wall

You looked his way and I saw your eyes twinkle bright
I didn't know what to say but stars fell that night
My face turned white as I backed up and saw it all
I feel like I'm facing my back against the wall

Yeah, I'm losing face with my back against the wall
Rancher's Blues (Larry W Jones 03/26/2017) (song #7105)

I heat the iron in a cottonwood fire
Brand the cattle til it singes their hair
Sometimes I'm sorry to hear their loud moos
But that's just a part of these rancher's blues

I buy more hay when the weather is dry
And wish for some rain from a clear blue sky
Sometimes I wonder why this life I choose
Just another part of these rancher's blues

The seasons come around and then they go
I've seen on the ground dust and rain and snow
Oh, I've hung my head while paying my dues
But it's all a part of these rancher's blues

(Instrumental)

I drive the new yearlings to the train yard
Unloading the big truck is work that's hard
I read the local paper for good news
Nothing there but my neighbor rancher's blues

The corral fence is old and top rail's down
I take my love to a little hoe-down
She says don't worry about these old shoes
Our love is stronger than these rancher's blues

She says don't worry about these old shoes
Our love is stronger than these rancher's blues
Son Of The Tramp Iron Railroad (Larry W Jones 03/28/2017) (song #7106)

Well, I was born in Costa Mesa by the railroad track
Mama gave birth in a tar papered shack
And by the time I was fourteen I lived like twenty one
Cause I learned how to survive on my own

Now, my Daddy was a hobo, so that's what I've been told
Mama never saw the love she was owed
I've ridden these old rusty rails until now I am old
I'm just a Son of the tramp iron railroad 

People call be a hobo whenever I'm in their town
They walk the other way when I'm around
I know just what they're thinking and what was on me bestowed
Another son of the tramp iron railroad

(Instrumental)

Now, my Daddy was a hobo, so that's what I've been told

I'm just a Son of the tramp iron railroad

They walk the other way when I'm around
I know just what they're thinking and what was on me bestowed
Another son of the tramp iron railroad

I'm just a son of the tramp iron railroad
Son of the tramp iron railroad
Bluebird Cafe Blues (Larry W Jones 03/29/2017) (song #7107)

I walked into the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville
An old timer was there paying his music dues
He was singin' real low but he was playin' strong
On his six string pickin' out Bluebird Cafe blues

Tall and lanky with his old right boot on a rung
Only the bar stool cared about the songs he sung
He seldom drank booze and always said his thank you's
For his six string pickin' out Bluebird Cafe blues

Well, I made that cafe like a home that was mine
That's where I ate and I watched him til closing time
I studied his pickin', I had nothing to lose
And soon I would copy his Bluebird Cafe blues

(Instrumental)

One night he asked me to join him on Bluebird stage
We picked on our guitars and life turned a new page
He said his time was done and the crowd wanted new
Now I'm the one pickin' out Bluebird Cafe blues

Many years have gone by and now I wonder if
The old man's pickin' his six string with Bluebird riffs
I'm now at the Opry paying my music dues
Owing it all to pickin' Bluebird Cafe blues

I'm now at the Opry paying my music dues
Thank you old timer for your Bluebird Cafe blues
Abide With Me (Larry W Jones 03/30/2017) (song #7108)

Abide with me where I am or where I will be
For I cannot bear to live alone and lonely
Abide with me and be my love around the world
With arms unfurled be my girl and abide with me

It's been awhile since I could smile and laugh again
I'd walk a thousand miles for your love to win
Abide with me and you will know I love you so
Our love will grow, let it show and abide with me

With love that's rare I'll share with you eternally
And we will see what's there wherever we will be
So, come along and sing my song and you'll agree 
That our love will be warm when you abide with me


(Instrumental)

And we will see what's there wherever we will be
So, come along and sing my song and you'll agree 
That our love will be warm when you abide with me

So, come along and sing my song and you'll agree 
That our love will be warm when you abide with me
Wallpapered Walls And A Floor (Larry W Jones 03/31/2017) (song #7109)

Wallpapered walls and a floor
A hall echoing to me
They're a home to me no more
Just a jail for me to see

The memory of her love
That is now far in the past
Is like chains around my heart
Locked by love that didn't last

(Instrumental)

Wallpapered walls and a floor
No door to glad tomorrows 
They close in and surround me
Walls and a floor of sorrows

Wallpapered walls and a floor
And a low ceiling above
Wallpapered walls and a floor
Just a captive of lost love

Wallpapered walls and a floor
Just a captive of lost love
Long Train (Larry W Jones 03/31/2017) (song #7110)

Long train, long train, you're rolling so slow
Long train, long train, big horn blowing low
Makes no difference what track I'm on
Long as this long train keeps rolling on

Long train, just where are you headed for
Both you and I don't care anymore
When she left me that's when I left too
Now all that left is this long train blues

Long train, long train, you're rolling so slow
Long train, long train, big horn blowing low
Makes no difference what track I'm on
Long as this long train keeps rolling on

(Instrumental)

Long train, long train, you're rolling so slow
Long train, long train, big horn blowing low
Makes no difference what track I'm on
Long as this long train keeps rolling on

Long train, long train, you're rolling so slow
Long train, long train, big horn blowing low
She's gone, she's gone, now I'm all alone
Ride this long train til her mem'ry's gone

She's gone, she's gone, now I'm all alone
Ride this long train til her mem'ry's gone
From A Rex To A Wreck (Larry W Jones 04/01/2017) (song #7111)

From a Rex to a wreck
From haughtiness to the lower deck
I lost a queen when I played the fool
Now I'm a sad wreck for being cruel
From a Rex to a wreck

From a Rex to a wreck
With no remorse I shuffled home late
And now of course I've sealed my own fate
I have gone from a Rex to a wreck
From a Rex to a wreck

Now, it only took a little time
To lose face like a card torn in two
And she could read between every line
To see the wreck I was coming to

From a Rex to a wreck
From haughtiness to the lower deck
I lost a queen when I played the fool
Now I'm a sad wreck for being cruel
From a Rex to a wreck

(Instrumental)

From a Rex to a wreck
From haughtiness to the lower deck
I lost a queen when I played the fool
Now I'm a sad wreck for being cruel
From a Rex to a wreck

Now, it only took a little time
To lose face like a card torn in two
And she could read between every line
To see the wreck I was coming to

From a Rex to a wreck
From haughtiness to the lower deck
I lost a queen when I played the fool
Now I'm a sad wreck for being cruel
From a Rex to a wreck
Send Me Back To San Angelo (Larry W Jones 04/01/2017) (song #7112)

Send me back to San Angelo, I'm so lonesome
So lonesome for my west Texas home town
These dirty streets of L.A. are filled with such glum
I get so lonesome when the sun goes down

The cowgirls here are really pretty but different
They all have gimmie your money syndrome
It didn't take long before my dreams were all spent
Send me back to my San Angelo home

Send me back to San Angelo, I'm so lonesome
Back in Texas I never wore a frown
Send me back to San Angelo, I'm so lonesome
I'll ride any train that's west Texas bound

(Instrumental)

I'll be so glad when my L.A. days are over
I won't ride these big freeways anymore
I'll ride that old Tom Green county like a rover
Just like I did many long years before

Mister engineer, thank you for this old boxcar
I know this train is bound for San Antone
Just slow down when you see that big west Texas star
I'll jump off in my San Angelo home

Send me back to San Angelo, I'm so lonesome
Back in Texas I never wore a frown
Send me back to San Angelo, I'm so lonesome
I'll ride any train that's west Texas bound

Just slow down when you see that big west Texas star
I'll jump off in my San Angelo home
Lady Like Her (Larry W Jones 04/02/2017) (song #7113)

Well, that jukebox in the corner is playing songs for a mourner
I know because now it's playing one about her
Every button I select plays another song about shipwreck
There's no lifeboat for loving a lady like her

That jukebox is an old Wurlitzer and it don't worry or care
No, it doesn't care if my mind is in a blur
But to help clear the air I'll put in another quarter and stare
As the spinning record plays a lady like her

(Instrumental)

That jukebox is an old Wurlitzer and it don't worry or care
No, it doesn't care if my mind is in a blur
But to help clear the air I'll put in another quarter and stare
As the spinning record plays a lady like her

But to help clear the air I'll put in another quarter and stare
As the spinning record plays a lady like her
As the spinning record plays a lady like her
A lady like her
Spent Past And Lost (Larry W Jones 04/02/2017) (song #7114)

I'm just another unknown in an unknown town
Guess I didn't stop to count the cost
I lie awake thinking on how it all went down
The life I've lived is spent, past and lost

In my younger years I burned up too many days
Troubles followed me round every bend
I always turned up where nobody had good ways
I'm spent, past and lost without a friend

I'm just another unknown in an unknown town
Guess I didn't stop to count the cost
I lie awake thinking on how it all went down
The life I've lived is spent, past and lost

(Instrumental)

Long paths of malcontent have followed me around
Spent, past and lost at my every turn
No happiness I've found and rocky is the ground
And now it's too late for me to learn

I'm just another unknown in an unknown town
Guess I didn't stop to count the cost
I lie awake thinking on how it all went down
The life I've lived is spent, past and lost

Guess I didn't stop to count the cost
The life I've lived is spent, past and lost
Where Memories Can't Go (Larry W Jones 04/03/2017) (song #7115)

Howdy pard, I just stopped by to discuss a long lost trail
One that leads far away and no one lives to tell the tale
I thought you might know since cowboy said you're up to the task
It's not for a roundup, but I'll clue you in if you ask

I'm looking for a long old trail where memories can't go
Now, I've been down many trails but her memory still shows
Once I rode to Abilene but she was still on the scene
Pardner, do you know anyplace where memories can't go

(Instrumental)

All I'm taking are saddlebags and one is filled with wine
Anything that reminds me of her I'm leaving behind
Old pal, can you point out that forgotten trail if you know
I'll ride my pony anyplace where memories can't go

I'm looking for a long old trail where memories can't go
Now, I've been down many trails but her memory still shows
Once I rode to Abilene but she was still on the scene
Pardner, do you know anyplace where memories can't go

Yeah, I just need to find that trail where memories can't go
Adios Dreamer (Larry W Jones 04/03/2017) (song #7116)

Adios dreamer, adios fairy tale
Adios for this is the end of the trail
Goodbye my illusion going far away
And may happiness come your way every day

Adios dreamer, adios fairy tale
Your face looks so lovely behind your black veil
As you both ride along I'll stay here alone
Adios dreamer for my dreams have all gone

(Instrumental)

Adios dreamer, adios fairy tale
Adios before my heart begins to fail
Goodbye my illusion going far away
And may happiness come your way every day

Adios dreamer, adios fairy tale
Your face looks so lovely behind your black veil
As you both ride along I'll stay here alone
Adios dreamer for my dreams have all gone

Adios dreamer for my dreams have all gone
Your Mem'ry Or I Go Out Of My Head (Larry W Jones 04/04/2017) (song #7117)

Your feet brought you to stay awhile
But then you turned and walked away
The love you left will not be dead until
Your mem'ry or I go out of my head

If I can't forget I'll go mad
You must leave although it's sad 
Please bear in mind what I have said
Your mem'ry or I go out of my head

I must quit this thinking of you
Because it makes no difference now
Oh yes it's true, what I now dread
Your mem'ry or I go out of my head

(Instrumental)

If I can't forget I'll go mad
You must leave although it's sad 
Please bear in mind what I have said
Your mem'ry or I go out of my head

I must quit this thinking of you
Because it makes no difference now
Oh yes it's true, what I now dread
Your mem'ry or I go out of my head

Oh yes it's true, what I now dread
Your mem'ry or I go out of my head
Gonna Ride Down A New Trail (Larry W Jones 04/05/2017) (song #7118)

Gonna ride down a new trail, one that's sunny and bright 
Cause my heart is in betrayal since she said goodbye
Gonna hide my loneliness til her mem'ry's a blur
Maybe I'll find happiness down a new trail from her

I remember the day she rode my way
I called her name that sunny month of May
Then the day my true love was discarded
Left me brokenhearted and in dismay

(Instrumental)
 
I remember the day she rode my way
I called her name that sunny month of May
Then the day my true love was discarded
Left me brokenhearted and in dismay

Gonna ride down a new trail, one that's sunny and bright 
Cause my heart is in betrayal since she said goodbye
Gonna hide my loneliness til her mem'ry's a blur
Maybe I'll find happiness down a new trail from her

Gonna ride down a new trail, one that's sunny and bright
Gonna ride down a new trail, find a new love that's right
Happy Trails Outweigh The Sad (Larry W Jones 04/06/2017) (song #7119)

I'm sittin' here looking back down trails of my life
And the way I figure, Roy and Dale got it right
They sang about happy trails and for that I'm glad
Cause I can see that happy trails outweigh the sad

I rocked my buckaroo off to sleep when he cried
And he always smiled on a rocking horsie ride
I'm fortunate for all the good fortune I've had
And I can see that happy trails outweigh the sad

(Instrumental)

Now, I never owned a big spread but I don't care
Just a loaf of lowly cowboy's bread was my fare
I know just why my happiness is so iron clad
And I can see that happy trails outweigh the sad

Yes, I worked the roundups all over this wide land
Though just a wrangler I always rode for the brand
Oh, there's lots of bad times and tales that I could add
But I can see that happy trails outweigh the sad

Oh, there's lots of bad times and tales that I could add
But I can see that happy trails outweigh the sad
Weeds Grow Well Where Feet Don't Dwell (Larry W Jones 04/07/2017) (song #7120)

The long road and I are mutual friends
And I never know where the journey ends
Like an old mule wearing blinders, half blind
I travel roads and never look behind

Now, weeds grow well where feet don't dwell
And there's no grass where my feet fell
The shoulder of the road can tell
That weeds grow well where feet don't dwell

(Instrumental)

I know flowers bloom in all the seasons 
Just like true love that searches for reasons
But there's no time for any affections
Cause my feet travel in all directions

Now, weeds grow well where feet don't dwell
And there's no grass where my feet fell
The shoulder of the road can tell
That weeds grow well where feet don't dwell

(Instrumental)

Mama said, son you were never a boy
Grew too fast to be a bundle of joy
All that I did I know I did it wrong
Just like a song about a road too long

Now, weeds grow well where feet don't dwell
And there's no grass where my feet fell
The shoulder of the road can tell
That weeds grow well where feet don't dwell

The shoulder of the road can tell
That weeds grow well where feet don't dwell
Sailboat Named Sea Trials Due (Larry W Jones 04/07/2017) (song #7121)

Well, I'm on a sailboat named Sea Trials Due
She's thirty feet long and the paint ain't new
Sailing o'er waves at a leisurely pace
Feeling the sun and warm wind in my face

Sailing south of the earth's equator line
Searching for an island to call all mine
Maybe there'll be a wahini or two
To sail on my sailboat named Sea Trials Due

(Ukulele Instrumental)

When I make it to Tahiti real soon
I'll drop anchor in a sleepy lagoon
Row the little dingy onto the shore
Look for a hammock and sleep until four

Then I'll stroll along the bay that's so blue
And look for someone to become my crew
Any Polynesian girl's smile will do
To sail on my sailboat named Sea Trials Due 
Freight Wagon Trail (Larry W Jones 04/08/2017) (song #7122)

Freight wagon trail, old ruts from yesterday
Only the prairie grass knows of their way
Horse, mule and oxen over hill and dale
Brought goods westward on the freight wagon trail

Banditos were part of the western lore
Smoke blazed from their long barreled forty four
The squeaking wheels no longer sing their song
And the loud crack of teamsters whips are gone

(Instrumental)

Banditos were part of the western lore
Smoke blazed from their long barreled forty four
The squeaking wheels no longer sing their song
And the loud crack of teamsters whips are gone

Freight wagon trail, no one cares where you've gone
Just ruts in the sands of time that were drawn
But history still lives to tell the tale
Of the grand time of the freight wagon trail

But history still lives to tell the tale
Of the grand time of the freight wagon trail
Half Hearted Love (Larry W Jones 04/09/2017) (song #7123)

Well, I'd just as soon be loved by no one
And never see a golden moon above
Yes, I'd rather grow old and departed
Than live a lie with your half hearted love

Oh, I'd just as soon have no sweet darlin'
And never hear the soft coo of a dove
Yes, I'd rather that touch never started
Than live with such as your half hearted love

Half hearted love is all you have given
And half hearted love just ain't worth livin'

(Instrumental)

Now, I'd just as soon be simply alone
And never dream dreams that never come true
For men such as I have never thought of
Living a lie with your half hearted love

Oh, I'd just as soon have no sweet darlin'
And never hear the soft coo of a dove
Yes, I'd rather that touch never started
Than live with such as your half hearted love

Half hearted love is all you have given
And half hearted love just ain't worth livin'
So, I'll live without your half hearted love
Manage With Care (Larry W Jones 04/09/2017) (song #7124)

Manage with care, for she is rare
Take care of her heart and be fair
Oh, I didn't play fair and square
Don't be like me, manage with care

Love her always where you may go 
Earn her love which I failed to show
Oh, please don't leave her in despair
For now I know, manage with care

(Instrumental)

Love her always where you may go 
Earn her love which I failed to show
Oh, please don't leave her in despair
For now I know, manage with care

Manage with care, for she is rare
Take care of her heart and be fair
Oh, I didn't play fair and square
Don't be like me, manage with care

Manage with care, for she is rare
Manage with care, for she is rare
Hold On Emotion (Larry W Jones 04/11/2017) (song #7125)

Hold on emotion, I feel you comin' on again
I need your potion like a long lost coming home friend
Hold on emotion, I've got a heart that you can mend
I'm not gonna let you go again

I'm holding onto a notion, a lotion called love
You feel warm to the touch just like a hand in a glove
Sometime back I lost you and I don't know where you've been
I'm not gonna let you go again

Hold on emotion, I feel you comin' on again
I need your potion like a long lost coming home friend
Hold on emotion, I've got a heart that you can mend
I'm not gonna let you go again

(Instrumental)

It's wonderful to hold a lady who's really real
And this time I know my shaky heart will really heal
Her sweet devotion is like the calm on an ocean
Hold on emotion, welcome home friend

Hold on emotion, I feel you comin' on again
I need your potion like a long lost coming home friend
Hold on emotion, I've got a heart that you can mend
I'm not gonna let you go again
Happy Annie Fifty (Larry W Jones 04/11/2017) (song #7126)

(Sweetheart, happy annie fifty)

Your hair once was fine gold but now silver
The light in your eyes is subdued
The walk in your step now shows a quiver
All things are not as we once viewed

So my sweetheart, happy annie fifty
Fifty years makes a happy memory
But for me those years went by so swiftly
So my sweetheart, happy annie fifty

The pledge we both signed has edges now curled
A page in our life now on full display
What those words read then was meant forever
And now we're almost there in golden age

So my sweetheart, happy annie fifty
Fifty years makes a happy memory
But for me those years went by so swiftly
So my sweetheart, happy annie fifty

So my sweetheart, happy annie fifty
Fifty years makes a happy memory
He Bucked Me Right Out Of The Chute (Larry W Jones 04/12/2017) (song #7127)

He bucked me right out of the chute
I'm climbin' the fence boot 'n scoot
I'll just tip my hat to that brute
He bucked me right out of the chute

I thought I drew a sway back nag
Eight second ride would be a drag
I saddled with my Texas brag
But there was just one little snag

He bucked me right out of the chute
I'm climbin' the fence boot 'n scoot
I'll just tip my hat to that brute
He bucked me right out of the chute

(Instrumental)

That cayuse didn't even spin
He sent me back where I had been
If I draw his number again
I won't think twice who just might win

He bucked me right out of the chute
I'm climbin' the fence boot 'n scoot
I'll just tip my hat to that brute
He bucked me right out of the chute

I'll just tip my hat to that brute
He bucked me right out of the chute
Liquid Heartbreak Fixer (Larry W Jones 04/13/2017) (song #7128)

Stopped at a liquid store on his way home
Walked in through the door feeling so alone
Told the counter man how he would miss her
Said give him some liquid heartbreak fixer

He told how he tried to get her to stay
And how they both cried as she went away
Told of mem'ries from the day he picked her
Now he'd pay for liquid heartbreak fixer

He said his pain just wouldn't go away
His heart was broken and in disarray
A mixer is what he was heard to say
An elixer, liquid heartbreak fixer

(Instrumental)

He told how he tried to get her to stay
And how they both cried as she went away
Told of mem'ries from the day he picked her
Now he'd pay for liquid heartbreak fixer

He said his pain just wouldn't go away
His heart was broken and in disarray
A mixer is what he was heard to say
An elixer, liquid heartbreak fixer

An elixer, liquid heartbreak fixer
Divine Is My Lady Love (Larry W Jones 04/14/2017) (song #7129)

Divine is my lady love
Like the rising of the moon
Every time I think of her
It gives me reason to croon

Divine is my lady love
In bliss is my daily life
Mornings begin with a kiss
Who could ask more from a wife

And at the end of each day
As the sun is going down
She still looks at me that way
As when in her wedding gown

(Instrumental)

Divine is my lady love
Just as gentle as a lamb
Oh, she knows what I'm made of
And accepts me as I am

Divine is my lady love
In bliss is my daily life
Mornings begin with a kiss
Who could ask more from a wife

Divine is my lady love
Texas Ranger Man (Larry W Jones 04/15/2017) (song #7130)

I've got a five pointed star on my vest
And a six gun on my hip to make arrests
All you outlaws, better run if you can
Does no go, I'm a Texas Ranger man

You'll know me by my hat, it's colored white
Just for you felons who ain't doin' right
I'm a-tellin' Y'all, I ride for the brand 
Call me Tex, I'm a Texas Ranger man

Texas Ranger man, Texas Ranger man
My home post is over in old Waco
My range is any place I have to go
Ridin' for the brand, Texas Ranger man

(Instrumental)

Now, If you outlaws know what's good for you
Better give up before I get to you
My draw's faster than the best of your clan
Call me Tex, I'm a Texas Ranger man

You'll know me by my hat, it's colored white
Just for you felons who ain't doin' right
I'm a-tellin' Y'all, I ride for the brand 
Call me Tex, I'm a Texas Ranger man

I'm a-tellin' Y'all, I ride for the brand 
Call me Tex, I'm a Texas Ranger man
Honky Tonk Honk (Larry W Jones 04/16/2017) (song #7131)

He sounds the honky tonk honk each payday
They know when he drives to the dew drop inn
He sounds the honky tonk honk each payday
When he stops in the good old boys all grin

He brings his lunch to work in a brown bag
Trying to save a dime his workmates say 
His shirt is slouchy and his pants are rags
Credit to honky tonk honk each payday

(Instrumental)

At home, food is low and shoe soles have holes
All of his kids wear Goodwill hand me downs
His devoted wife has loaded down woes
Due to his honky tonk honkin' around

He sounds the honky tonk honk each payday
They know when he drives to the dew drop inn
He sounds the honky tonk honk each payday
When he stops in the good old boys all grin

Honky tonk honk, he buys the rounds again
Dixieland Express (Larry W Jones 04/17/2017) (song #7132)

Step aboard the Dixieland, yeah, ride on the Dixieland
From the wide Atlantic through the cotton fields heading west
Step aboard the Dixieland, yeah, ride on the Dixieland
The Dixieland Express

Now, hear the lonesome sound of the train rolling outward bound
Puffing on the main line South toward old Louisian' on time 
Free as the breeze and going where I please on Dixie ground
The Dixieland Express

Step aboard the Dixieland, yeah, ride on the Dixieland
From the wide Atlantic through the cotton fields heading west
Step aboard the Dixieland, yeah, ride on the Dixieland
The Dixieland Express

(Instrumental)

Now, hear the low clickety-clack on the main line track
Oh, it sounds just the same and every time it calls my name
That's why I'm Dixieland bound with that smokestack blowing black
This is a train of fame

Step aboard the Dixieland, yeah, ride on the Dixieland
From the wide Atlantic through the cotton fields heading west
Step aboard the Dixieland, yeah, ride on the Dixieland
The Dixieland Express

Step aboard the Dixieland, yeah, ride on the Dixieland

Hootenanny Annie (Larry W Jones 04/19/2017) (song #7133)

Well, I took sweet Annie to the hootenanny
And it was uncanny how she took to the beat
In sixty three she knew folk songs from A to Z
Yeah, she's my sweet Annie, my hootenanny treat

Annie sang along with Green Green, it's green they say
Over on the far side of the hill, far away
The New Christy Minstrels said my Annie was keen
Yeah, she was born to be a hootenanny queen

Annie sang about how Tom Dooley lost his life
A poor boy but Tom sure was handy with a knife
Kingston Trio said Annie played banjo easily
Sweet Annie found it hangin' from a white oak tree

(Instrumental)

Annie got Serendipity singin' down town
A crooked little man had let the rain come down
Rained so much that it was a remarkable scene
With the four Beatles in a yellow submarine

Now, when old Michael tried to row his boat ashore
Annie said, Michael let me help you with an oar
And even if we have to row Five Hundred Miles
Silver Threads and Golden Needles will mend our trials

Well, I took sweet Annie to the hootenanny
And it was uncanny how she took to the beat
In sixty three she knew folk songs from A to Z
Yeah, she's my sweet Annie, my hootenanny treat

Hootenanny Annie, my hootenanny queen
Waiting While You're Waiting (Larry W Jones 04/19/2017) (song #7134)

Every hour of the day I'm waiting here for you
I know you're waiting for a love that's really true
Dear, with my every breath I'm hoping that you knew
That I'm waiting while you're waiting for true love too

Do you recall back in the Fall my words to you
That I would wait for you until the Springtime blue 
Well, now's the time I've waited for your word that's due
I'm waiting while you're waiting and that makes me blue

Every night I dream while waiting for day to come
For that day when you will say I'm you're only one
Dear, don't keep me waiting while you're waiting forlorn
Don't be hesitating, welcome my empty arms

(Instrumental)

Do you recall back in the Fall my words to you
That I would wait for you until the Springtime blue 
Well, now's the time I've waited for your word that's due
I'm waiting while you're waiting and that makes me blue

Every night I dream while waiting for day to come
For that day when you will say I'm you're only one
Dear, don't keep me waiting while you're waiting forlorn
Don't be hesitating, welcome my empty arms

Dear, with my every breath I'm hoping that you knew
That I'm waiting while you're waiting for true love too
Denver (Larry W Jones 04/19/2017) (song #7135)

I'm so forlorn here every morn
The people look at me with scorn
Every place I find to enter
No face has a smile to render
Moving back to Denver, Denver

Threadbare is what I call my jeans
Nobody cares because they're mean
Holes in my pockets can't hold dimes
Dark eye sockets most of the time
Moving back to Denver, Denver

The outlook here is kinda bleak
Like no paddle when up the creek
So, I'm through with this adventure
Days are over with my tenure
Moving back to Denver, Denver

(Instrumental)

The outlook here is kinda bleak
Like no paddle when up the creek
So, I'm through with this adventure
Days are over with my tenure
Moving back to Denver, Denver

Old Denver town is one mile high
Mountains there reach into the sky
Fresh air is what I'll be breathing
So, tomorrow I'll be leaving
Moving back to Denver, Denver

Old Denver town is one mile high
Mountains there reach into the sky
Fresh air is what I'll be breathing
So, tomorrow I'll be leaving
Moving back to Denver, Denver
Robin Spring Robin (Larry W Jones 04/20/2017) (song #7136)

Robin, spring robin, that will be your name 
(Robin, spring robin, you name)
You come in the Springtime for hearts to tame
(In Springtime for hearts to tame)
You come in the Springtime for hearts to tame
Robin, spring robin, that will be your name 

Robin, spring robin, just hopping along
(Spring robin hopping along)
A tender heart you rob with your Spring song
(Hearts you rob with your Spring song)
A tender heart you rob with your Spring song
Robin, spring robin, just hopping along

You drew me and woo me as others too
You promised Spring love but then left them blue
All my Spring dreams you have shattered apart
And it all springs from your robbing my heart

Robin, spring robin, feathers brown and blue
(Robin, feathers brown and blue)
If your wings were clipped it still wouldn't do
(Wings clipped it still wouldn't do)
If your wings were clipped it still wouldn't do
Robin, spring robin, feathers brown and blue

Robin, spring robin, just hop right on by
Some hearts need broken, but robin, not mine
Fly away in feathers of brown and blue 
Robin spring robin, I just don't need you

I'll wait til Winter when you're not around
Then there won't be feathers of blue and brown
To rob my tender heart with your spring song
It won't be Spring and you won't be around
To rob my tender heart with your spring song

Robin, spring robin, please don't rob my heart
I Nearly Spoke Your Name (Larry W Jones 04/22/2017) (song #7137)

As we both were waltzing she smiled the same as you
I felt I was falling in love again with you
Clearly in my mind she was the same
From my lips I nearly spoke your name

Yes my dear, from my lips I nearly spoke your name
For it was clear that in my mind she was the same
And different names were the only change
From my lips I nearly spoke your name

(Instrumental)

Yes my dear, from my lips I nearly spoke your name
For it was clear that in my mind she was the same
And different names were the only change
From my lips I nearly spoke your name

And different names were the only change
From my lips I nearly spoke your name
I nearly spoke your name
I Could (Larry W Jones 04/22/2017) (song #7138)

If someone could tell a tragic tale, well, I could
The storyline would be a tragic love affair
If someone could say they're in dismay, well, I could
To count the cost of love that's lost is hard to bear

I recall when old memories fall and linger
For someone I thought I understood
If someone could think that dreams slipped through their fingers
Well, I could, oh yes, I know I could

(Instrumental)

I recall when old memories fall and linger
For someone I thought I understood
If someone could think that dreams slipped through their fingers
Well, I could, oh yes, I know I could

I recall when old memories fall and linger
For someone I thought I understood
If someone could think that dreams slipped through their fingers
Well, I could, oh yes, I know I could

Well, I could, oh yes, I know I could
You Won't Fall For My Love In You (Larry W Jones 04/23/2017) (song #7139)

It must have been hard, what you went through
You fell in love but he made you blue
For you I'm in love, you know it too 
But you won't fall for my love in you

Dear, you don't trust me, that I can see
Oh, please don't be blind to what could be
For you I'm in love, you know it too 
But you won't fall for my love in you

I want to hold you for evermore
Your lost love has closed up your heart's door
For you I'm in love, you know it too 
But you won't fall for my love in you

(Instrumental)

You made a mistake, now you must choose
Between true love and mem'ries to lose
For you I'm in love, you know it too 
But you won't fall for my love in you

You can't repay love laid on the ground
There's only one way truth can be found
For you I'm in love, you know it too 
But you won't fall for my love in you

Why won't you fall for my love in you
I Never Waltz With Blondes (Larry W Jones 04/23/2017) (song #7140)

The band is playing Waltz Across Texas
Bringing back to my mind old memories
I came to forget one of my exes
Thinking I had thrown away love's old keys

Well now, I never waltz with blondes
They're gold diggers and all the same
But you are tall, slender and blonde
I don't waltz with blondes, what's your name

Now, the last thing I need is new romance
But could we take one waltz across the floor
On blondes I said I'd never take a chance
But that was before you waltzed in the door

(Instrumental)

Now, the last thing I need is new romance
But could we take one waltz across the floor
On blondes I said I'd never take a chance
But that was before you waltzed in the door

Well now, I never waltz with blondes
They're gold diggers and all the same
But you are tall, slender and blonde
I don't waltz with blondes, what's your name

But you are tall, slender and blonde
I don't waltz with blondes, what's your name

Pothole In My Pocket (Larry W Jones 04/25/2017) (song #7141)

There's a pothole in my pocket
Yeah, a pothole in my pocket
I can't go to the festival
No, can't go to the festival
I guess I'll stay here feeling blue
Yeah, guess I'll stay here feeling blue

There's a pothole in my pocket
I can't go to the festival
All my money went falling through
My girl with her golden lockets
Oh, she'll go to the festival
And have such fun with someone new

There's a pothole in my pocket
Yeah, a pothole in my pocket
I can't go to the festival

(Instrumental)

There's a pothole in my pocket
I can't go to the festival
All my money went falling through
My girl with her golden lockets
Oh, she'll go to the festival
And have such fun with someone new

There's a pothole in my pocket
Yeah, a pothole in my pocket
All my dreams just went falling through
My girl with her golden lockets
That girl with her golden lockets
Will have such fun with someone new

There's a pothole in my pocket
Yeah, a pothole in my pocket
I can't go to the festival
My Silver Spurs (Larry W Jones 04/26/2017) (song #7142)

Now, my silver spurs go rattle, tattle, rattle
As I go ridin' out of town
I told Clementine that I'd be ropin' cattle
She was hopin' to tie me down

Oh Clementine, dear Clementine
Yes, I may have been feeding you a line
But here, my dear's the reason there's no time

Now, my silver spurs go rattle, tattle, rattle
As I go ridin' out of town
I told Clementine that I'd be ropin' cattle
She was hopin' to tie me down

(Instrumental)

Oh Annabelle, dear Annabelle
I know that you asked me to stay a spell
But here, my dear's the reason I can't dwell

Now, my silver spurs go rattle, tattle, rattle
As I go ridin' out of town
I told Annabell that I'd be ropin' cattle
She was hopin' to tie me down

Now, my silver spurs go rattle, tattle, rattle
As I go ridin' out of town
I told all them gals that I'd be ropin' cattle
They were hopin' to tie me down

Yeah, my silver spurs go rattle, tattle, rattle
As I go ridin' out of town
Hello To Your Goodbye (Larry W Jones 04/26/2017) (song #7143)

Well, we said hello awhile ago
What went wrong, suppose I'll never know
I guess I'll say goodbye to my pride
Soon I'll say hello to your goodbye

Dear, I fear my poor heart's now in harm
Anyhow it's clear I hear alarms
Without you near I fear that I'll cry
Soon I'll say hello to your goodbye

(Instrumental)

Love, what was the force that changed your mind
Your altered course is not silver lined
Words don't falter and your eyes are dry
Soon I'll say hello to your goodbye

Dear, you don't care that my face is pale
I'm adrift like a boat with no sail
Don't leave a note for this forlorn guy
Soon I'll say hello to your goodbye

Soon I'll say hello to your goodbye
I Concur With Every Word You Heard (Larry W Jones 04/27/2017) (song #7144)

You heard him say he'd love you forever
Lines between lies and truth are often blurred
I don't know much about him, however
Dear, I concur with every word you heard

You heard him whisper sweet words in your ear
Yes, and I know your heart was really stirred
I fear I will never hold you, it's clear
But I concur with every word you heard

(Instrumental)

His own words stole your heart away from mine
In this love triangle I came in third
Believe me, for you I will ever pine
As I concur with every word you heard

You heard him say he'd love you forever
When he placed the ring and then said I Do
The one word for having you is never
But I concur with each word you heard too

Dear, I concur with every word you heard
She Traded Her Gold (Larry W Jones 04/27/2017) (song #7145)

She once led a sheltered life in a mansion home
But love was helter-skelter with his heart so cold
One day it all ended when he began to roam
And she traded her gold for a poor hand to hold

My future was looking as dark as dismal night
But when I met her she broke me out from my mold 
This lady took me from dismal night to new light
And she traded her gold for a poor hand to hold

(Instrumental)

Yes, she traded her gold for a poor hand to hold
Her warm fingers fit into my poor hand whole-souled
She gave up her sheltered life in a mansion home
And she traded her gold for a poor hand to hold

She told me that if she could live her life again
That in a mansion so cold she would never go
And now I feel like it's a mansion I live in 
When she traded her gold for a poor hand to hold

And now I feel like it's a mansion I live in 
When she traded her gold for a poor hand to hold
If I Could Whistle A Tune (Larry W Jones 04/28/2017) (song #7146)

If I could whistle a tune
That is as charming as you
Every month would be like June
With swarming honey bees too

If I could whistle a tune
That's as caring as you are
Every night would be full moon
Sharing love among the stars

Love tunes are only music
But a whistle gives a clue
That each line has a Cupid
And mine is aimed right at you

(Instrumental)

If I could whistle a tune
That you could hear for a mile
Your ears would notice real soon
That I've loved you for awhile

If I could whistle a tune
That would tell you I'm in love
Would you listen as I croon
You're the one that I'm fond of

Love tunes are only music
But a whistle gives a clue
That each line has a Cupid
And mine is aimed right at you
When I Get Back To San Antone (Larry W Jones 04/28/2017) (song #7147)

Now, what has become of this Texas boy
The one who now is a cafe busboy
A lost Texan who's just a lonely soul
Who thought he would star in a Broadway show

Well, I tried out driving a yellow cab
Lost money with crooks not paying the tab
I guess I'll just thumb my way back on home
I know it was dumb to leave San Antone

When I get back to San Antone
You値l never see this Texan gone
I値l find me a nice yellow rose
And watch her in my garden grow

(Instrumental)

I値l give all of my Texas love to her
I値l keep her warm, there値l be no need for furs
I thought I would star in a Broadway show
So far from a San Antone rodeo

When I get back to San Antone
You値l never see this Texan gone
I値l find me a nice yellow rose
And watch her in my garden grow

I値l find me a nice yellow rose
And watch her in my garden grow
When I get back to San Antone
When I get back to San Antone
Teary Bleary Dreary Days Of Winter (Larry W Jones 04/29/2017) (song #7148)

Wrap up these teary, bleary, dreary days of Winter
These days of cocoa and blankets and tears
Wrap up these teary, bleary, dreary days of Winter
Put out the cold and fold away these days of fear

I filled my pantry full of tuna fish and donuts
Then pulled the blinds down, let it snow
Now, on the couch I'll eat my old cold cuts
And watch Gilligan's Island on the picture show

Wrap up these teary, bleary, dreary days of Winter
These days of cocoa and blankets and tears
Wrap up these teary, bleary, dreary days of Winter
I wish cold Winter would never come here

Wrap up these teary, bleary, dreary days of Winter
These days of cocoa and blankets and tears
Wrap up these teary, bleary, dreary days of Winter
Put out the cold and fold away these days of fear

Don't hafta tell this guy don't go to a drive-in
No girl in her right mind would go
At this here moment I'm tryin' for survivin'
These teary, bleary, weary days of snow

Wrap up these teary, bleary, dreary days of Winter
These days of cocoa and blankets and tears
Wrap up these teary, bleary, dreary days of Winter
I wish cold Winter would never come here

I wish cold Winter would never come here
I wish cold Winter would never come here
I Fed The Jukebox With Teardrops (Larry W Jones 04/29/2017) (song #7149)

There was a note on the front door when I got home 
That told me she might go as far away as Nome		
Well, I fed the jukebox with teardrops all night long
The teardrops came easy while playing loser's songs

My darlin' went away today
Goodbye, she didn't even say
All I know is that she is gone
It's jukebox and teardrops til dawn

Well, I fed the jukebox with teardrops all night long
A dime at a time I played all those tearjerk songs
Sometimes I closed my mind to what was going on
Yes, I fed the jukebox with teardrops all night long

(Instrumental)

Bartender, I know you're my pal
Let me stay and think of my gal
All I know is that she is gone
It's jukebox and teardrops til dawn

Well, I fed the jukebox with teardrops all night long
A dime at a time I played all those tearjerk songs
Sometimes I closed my mind to what was going on
Yes, I fed the jukebox with teardrops all night long
 
Yes, I fed the jukebox with teardrops all night long
A Wild Irish Rose Grows In Ireland (Larry W Jones 04/29/2017) (song #7150)

Now, a wild Irish rose grows in Ireland
Where else could such a sweet song be composed
Yes, a wild Irish rose grows in Ireland
Where else could grow one that the whole world knows

One wild rose, send me that wild Irish rose
Send me that rose with her arms open wide
One wild rose, send me that wild Irish rose
One that opens with her true heart inside

Now, a wild Irish rose grows in Ireland
Where else could such a sweet song be composed
Yes, a wild Irish rose grows in Ireland
Where else could grow one that the whole world knows

(Instrumental)

Until she comes to me in the gloaming
My love will burn as in an Irish flame
May a wild Irish rose soon be roaming
From green Ireland with her song of acclaim

Now, a wild Irish rose grows in Ireland
Where else could such a sweet song be composed
Yes, a wild Irish rose grows in Ireland
Where else could grow one that the whole world knows

Now, a wild Irish rose grows in Ireland
Yes, a wild Irish rose grows in Ireland
Send me that rose with her arms open wide
One that opens with her true heart inside
My Heart Has A Windowpane (Larry W Jones 04/29/2017) (song #7151)

Now, my heart has a windowpane
And you can see I'm painfully in love with you
There's a reflection of a tear
Anytime that you're not with me dear, I'm so blue

Yes, my heart has a windowpane
I keep it washed just as clean as the Springtime dew
And you can see inside, it's plain 
My heart is held wide open anytime for you

(Instrumental)

Dear, my heart has a windowpane
And you can see I'm painfully in love with you
I keep it washed with tears, not rain
Anytime that you're not with me dear, I'm so blue

Yes, my heart has a windowpane
I keep it washed just as clean as the Springtime dew
And you can see inside, it's plain 
My heart is held wide open anytime for you

And you can see inside, it's plain 
My heart is held wide open anytime for you
Back Door Of My Mind (Larry W Jones 04/29/2017) (song #7152)

At midnight through the back door of my mind
She walks in without knocking every time
I walk the floor at night when she walks in
At midnight through the back door of my mind

She's the girl I used to know long ago 
I have thought about her too many times
Each night at midnight she turns on the light
Then she walks through the back door of my mind

At midnight through the back door of my mind
She walks in without knocking every time
I walk the floor at night when she walks in
At midnight through the back door of my mind

(Instrumental)

No use in trying to forget that girl
By day I'm OK and I'm doing fine
But at midnight my dreams are in a whirl
When she walks through the back door of my mind

At midnight through the back door of my mind
She walks in without knocking every time
I walk the floor at night when she walks in
At midnight through the back door of my mind

I walk the floor at night when she walks in
At midnight through the back door of my mind
Old New Braunfels (Larry W Jones 04/30/2017) (song #7153)

Old New Braunfels is a town to let your hair down and have some fun
On the Comal you can have a ball tubing with your lovely one
Float down the stream in a setting serene under skies of deep blue
Old New Braunfels is the place with no rat race where Texans head to

Take a friend to the Comal River bend
Where cool water flows from underground springs
Texas air is clean and it's a fair scene
When you float downstream on your tubing ring

Old New Braunfels is a town to let your hair down and have some fun
On the Comal you can have a ball tubing with your lovely one
Float down the stream in a setting serene under skies of deep blue
Old New Braunfels is the place with no rat race where Texans head to

(Instrumental)

With a cooler of beer, feeling the cheer
You'll meet a bunch of folks laughing at jokes 
Where all Texans go to answer the call
Is New Braunfels and the River Comal

Old New Braunfels is a town to let your hair down and have some fun
On the Comal you can have a ball tubing with your lovely one
Float down the stream in a setting serene under skies of deep blue
Old New Braunfels is the place with no rat race where Texans head to
Am I Right Or Mistaken (Larry W Jones 04/30/2017) (song #7154)

Am I right or mistaken about loving you
Sweetheart, please awaken to the fact that it's true
Am I right or mistaken of your love for me
Darling, I can't decide without your point of view

If I have to guess my heart might be in distress
I must confess you hold the key to happiness
Am I right or mistaken for dreaming at night
That there's no mistaking that our future is bright 

(Instrumental)

If I have to guess my heart might be in distress
I must confess you hold the key to happiness
Am I right or mistaken for dreaming at night
That there's no mistaking that our future is bright 

Am I right or mistaken about loving you
Sweetheart, please awaken to the fact that it's true
Am I right or mistaken
It's no mistake, I love you
When The Pampa Starts To Bloom (Larry W Jones 04/30/2017) (song #7155)

The dogies bawled, hoot owls called
Out across the Great Divide
Cowboys sang with western twang
Down the trail that we all ride

Rattlesnakes make horses shake
Like they're riding to their doom
But Spring roundup time is fine
When the Pampa starts to bloom

Daylight comes and Cookie rings
His chow iron for every man
On sourdough bread we're all fed
Washed down from a coffee can

Sun is up, cowboys round up
All the strays and then resume
The cattle drive, six til five 
When the Pampa starts to bloom

We cowboys are riding West
Through hot sun, cold snow or rain 
But the West is still the best
That's why cowboys ride again

Of all the men, some have been
Wranglers that met early doom
But we live to ride again
When the Pampa starts to bloom

Daylight comes and Cookie rings
His chow iron for every man
On sourdough bread we're all fed
Washed down from a coffee can

Sun is up, cowboys round up
All the strays and then resume
The cattle drive, six til five 
When the Pampa starts to bloom
My Desert Rose (Larry W Jones 05/01/2017) (song #7156)

One evening now begone when shadows lingered long
My darling took the stage back east toward home
It was the month of May with flowers on display
I held her in my arms and sang this song

Dear, you're my desert rose blooming on the prairie
A sweet fragrant desert rose blooming here for me
Darling rose, when you return is when we'll marry
My sweet desert rose is what you will always be 

(Instrumental)

Then a message came by way of the telegraph
The stage had been robbed by a ruthless gang
No one aboard had survived read the paragraph
My heart broke recalling the song I sang

Dear, you're my desert rose blooming on the prairie
A sweet fragrant desert rose blooming here for me
Darling rose, when you return is when we'll marry
My sweet desert rose is what you will always be 

(Instrumental)

My darling can't return from her home far away
O'er my head, words to her will linger long 
It was the month of May with flowers on display
I held her in my arms and sang this song

Dear, you're my desert rose blooming on the prairie
A sweet fragrant desert rose blooming here for me
Darling rose, when you return is when we'll marry
My sweet desert rose is what you will always be 

Darling rose, when you return is when we'll marry
My sweet desert rose is what you will always be
My Skin Ain't Tore But It Shore Is Skint (Larry W Jones 05/02/2017) (song #7157)

Well, back to the hills is where I'm a-goin'
No more can I pay the landlord a cent
Don't know where funds went but I'm a-knowin'
That my skin ain't tore but it shore is skint

I met some good old boys in the city
And I guess I loaned them more than I meant
The rent has come due and it's a pity
That my skin ain't tore but it shore is skint

(Instrumental)

I met some good old boys in the city
And I guess I loaned them more than I meant
The rent has come due and it's a pity
That my skin ain't tore but it shore is skint

Well, them good old boys ain't no more my pals
They ain't around, I don't know where they went
I'm done and I'm throwin' in the towel
Cause my skin ain't tore but it shore is skint

I'm done and I'm throwin' in the towel
Cause my skin ain't tore but it shore is skint
Isle Of Galveston (Larry W Jones 05/03/2017) (song #7158)

In the warm Gulf of Mexico just off the Texas coast
There's an island called Galveston that's warm as Texas toast
On the island there's a village with friendly southern ways
Old Jamaica Beach was my childhood home in former days

My childhood days were so carefree most of my younger time
There's always a girl in a song and so there is in mine
My heart she broke more times than one and then a few times more
She's the reason why I left her on that Galveston shore

Folks on Galveston make their living from the land and sea
I still have friends on Galveston who mean the world to me
If I only had the power to change the tides of time
I'd live again on Galveston, my home of Texas climes

Spoken:
I'd love to watch the old shrimping boats on Galveston Bay
To see sandpipers eat the small shrimp as they run and play
The isle of Galveston knows no strangers for all are friends
Yes, the isle of Galveston's where I'd like to live again

Folks on Galveston make their living from the land and sea
I still have friends on Galveston who mean the world to me
If I only had the power to change the tides of time
I'd live again on Galveston, my home of Texas climes

I'd live again on Galveston, my home of childhood times
Big Yellow Roses (Larry W Jones 05/03/2017) (song #7159)

Big yellow roses grow in my back yard
They looked red when bought on my credit card
Big yellow roses somehow don't look right
Are they yellow or is it just the light

Our marriage was planned in my own back yard
I hired a band with fiddle and guitar
But when you left, all I could do was cry
Then I knew, yellow roses mean goodbye

Big yellow roses grow in my back yard
They looked red when bought on my credit card
Big yellow roses somehow don't look right
Are they yellow or is it just the light

(Instrumental)

We planted red roses way back in Spring
We watched them grow with joy that flowers bring
Now I know, yellow roses mean goodbye
They turned yellow when your love for me died 

Big yellow roses grow in my back yard
They looked red when bought on my credit card
Big yellow roses somehow don't look right
Are they yellow or is it just the light

Big yellow roses somehow don't look right
Are they yellow or is it just the light
I Will Forever Never Love You Anymore (Larry W Jones 05/03/2017) (song #7160)

You left me lonely, now you're knocking at my door
Well, I told you then, now I'll tell you one time more
I learned my lesson and forgive me if I'm sore
I will forever never love you anymore

Don't beg me to forgive you or to forget
I'm sorry but you gave me seasons of regret
My love for you was severed right down to its core
I will forever never love you anymore

(Instrumental)

Don't beg me to forgive you or to forget
I'm sorry but you gave me seasons of regret
My love for you was severed right down to its core
I will forever never love you anymore

Once I loved you only but you walked out the door
You left me lonely and walking across the floor
I swear by stars above as never done before
I will forever never love you anymore

I swear by stars above as never done before
I will forever never love you anymore
Turn Him Out To Pasture (Larry W Jones 05/04/2017) (song #7161)

Boys, he's looking kinda wearied
And his vision ain't what it was
His mane is not the same, it's turning grey
He's seen his share of cattle drives
Boys, he's led a good horse's life
Guess we'll turn him out to pasture today

He was a colt I remember
It seems like not many a year
Ready for saddle when I gave the word
Always won when shove came to push
With a headstrong bull in the bush
When night riding he was boss of the herd

(Instrumental)

Boys, we'll leave him in the pasture
Yep, I think we'll leave him out there
Next to his pasture-pal mare, the old bay
Leave him in the pasture to graze
Out there he'll live out his last days 
Boys, we'll turn him out to pasture today

Old Dan is due for some kindness
He's earned it well without a doubt
His step isn't lively, but now is slow
Let him wander in the pasture
Down by the stream full of big trout
Turn him out to the green pasture he knows

Out there he'll live out his last days 
Boys, we'll turn him out to pasture today
I'm Tossing My Lariat At The Moon (Larry W Jones 05/08/2017) (song #7162)

I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
Trying to lasso that old man up there
I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
I want to tell him he's not being fair

That old man in the moon knows about love
He's supposed to know how to rope a girl
I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
I need him down here for love to unfurl

I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
For help to find a girl with eyes of blue
I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
I need his help to find a love that's true

(Instrumental)

Old pards watch my lariat as I toss
They laugh at me but won't be laughing soon
I'll show that old man in the moon who's boss
I'm tossing my lariat at the moon

That old man in the moon knows about love
He's supposed to know how to rope a girl
I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
I need him down here for love to unfurl

I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
For help to find a girl with eyes of blue
I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
I need his help to find a love that's true

That old man in the moon knows about love
I'm tossing my lariat at the moon
Looking Back At You Back On My Mind (Larry W Jones 05/08/2017) (song #7163)

Every once in awhile I think way back
To that long black train rolling down the track
And for every mile it traveled I find 
I'm looking back at you back on my mind

The moan of that outbound horn still sounds low
Even though it was born long years ago
Though I thought I'd left that sad day behind 
I'm looking back at you back on my mind

When I go to bed, seems I stll can feel
The low rumble of that train's rolling wheels
Next morning when I face the daily grind
I'm looking back at you back on my mind

(Instrumental)

I try to close my mind and turn away
From mem'ries of you leaving on that day
It's bad and as I'm grieving one more time
I'm looking back at you back on my mind

The moan of that outbound horn still sounds low
Even though it was born long years ago
Though I thought I'd left that sad day behind 
I'm looking back at you back on my mind

Though I thought I'd left that sad day behind 
I'm looking back at you back on my mind
Old Cowboy Song (Larry W Jones 05/09/2017) (song #7164)

Howdy pards, I'm just an old cowboy song
It's been awhile since I've been Back In the Saddle Again
I rode away on the Strawberry Roan
Off the radio dial, old cowboys wonder where I've been  

Nowadays young folks don't hear Cattle Call
And they never heard of Cole Younger or Miss Clementine 
Think Billy the Kid's shorter than 'em all
And When The Works All Done This Fall just means it's Autum time

Well now pards, if you're at the Big Corral
You'll see Old Paint and Cowboy Jack are still ridin' around
You might even see some Buffalo Gals
When they Cross the Brazos At Waco for San Antone ground

(Instrumental)

Howdy pards, I'm just an old cowboy song
I know you thought I'd gone with the Ghost Riders In The Sky
But The Cowboy's Life is where I belong
So boys, Come All You Wild Rovers to Where The Cowboys Ride 

Old Paint, Maybe I sound sad and forlorn
Bury Me Not On The Lone Prairie, my Home On The Range
On the Streets Of Laredo I was born
But I've been a Tumbling Tumbleweed on The Open Grange

Howdy pards, I'm just an old cowboy song
It's been awhile since I've been Back In the Saddle Again
I rode away on the Strawberry Roan
Off the radio dial, old cowboys wonder where I've been  

Howdy pards, I'm just an old cowboy song
I rode away on the Strawberry Roan
Ballybay Gal (Larry W Jones 05/10/2017) (song #7165)

Now lads, I took a walk in County Monaghan
On a fine May o-day o-day o-day
It was there I met a fine gal in Ballybay
On a fine May o-day o-day o-day

What's a fella to say but lo, hello hello
To a gal at the green Lough Mor locale
The heart in me was a-flutter and all aglow
On sight of the green eyed Ballybay gal

Well, I asked her for her name and with no delay
On a fine May o-day o-day o-day
Spake she, let us recline on yonder heather brae
On a fine May o-day o-day o-day

What's a fella to say but hey, Ok Ok
Spake she, my name tis Colleen O'Farrell
I kissed Colleen that May o-day o-day o-day
Lads, I kissed the green eyed Ballybay gal

Now, I won't be long singin' this 'ere Irish song
On a fine May o-day o-day o-day
Colleen 'n me, our wedding will be afore long
On a fine May o-day o-day o-day

Now lads, I took a walk in County Monaghan
On a fine May o-day o-day o-day
It was there I met a fine gal in Ballybay
On a fine May o-day o-day o-day

Wed that gal at the green Lough Mor locale
Now lads, she's my green eyed Ballybay gal
Let The Bronco Prance (Larry W Jones 05/10/2017) (song #7166)

Boys, he's all withdrawn since the filly's gone
He ain't the same old bronco roan
The corral might break and the ground will shake
I think he's got a horse heartache

Let the bronco prance, let the bronco prance
Maybe he won't run if we let him dance
The filly's gone and he's a lovesick roan
Let the bronco prance for a new romance

Let the bronco jump, he's down in the dumps
He needs lots of room to kick up his rumps
Let the bronco prance, let the bronco prance
It's a game of chance, let the bronco prance

(Instrumental)

Let the bronco prance, let the bronco prance
Maybe he won't run if we let him dance
The filly's gone and he's a lovesick roan
Let the bronco prance for a new romance

Now, he's a big ol bronc to say the least
Boys, a dance might calm the heart of the beast
Come on now Billy, get outta his way
He'll find a new filly one of these days

Let the bronco prance, let the bronco prance
Maybe he won't run if we let him dance
The filly's gone and he's a lovesick roan
Let the bronco prance for a new romance

Let the bronco prance, let the bronco prance
Cousin Morning Dove (Larry W Jones 05/11/2017) (song #7167)

Early this morning a morning dove flew over
I swear he looked right down at me
And I think he must have thought I was a loner
My mourning was sad as could be

Now I know why morning doves get up so early
Their sleep at night is light and hurried
I suppose they spend the night weeping, not sleeping
Like me, their day starts with worry

Cousin morning dove, now where are you flying to
We're birds of a feather in kind
Cousin morning dove, just like you I'm crying too
Are both of us out of our minds

(Instrumental)

Now I know why morning doves get up so early
Their sleep at night is light and hurried
I suppose they spend the night weeping, not sleeping
Like me, their day starts with worry

Cousin morning dove, now where are you flying to
We're birds of a feather in kind
Cousin morning dove, just like you I'm crying too
Are both of us out of our minds

We're birds of a feather in kind
Are both of us out of our minds
Help Yourself To My Heart (Larry W Jones 05/13/2017) (song #7168)

Now is the time to find someone
Now is the time to find a friend
Now is the time for love to start
Darling, help yourself to my heart

Real love is like a helpless child
It's sometimes lost and hard to find
Hearts know the cost when it's exiled
For I have crossed that line with mine

Now is the time to find someone
Now is the time to find a friend
Now is the time for love to start
Darling, help yourself to my heart

(Instrumental)

Some say that love is a ladder
That can extend up to the stars
But to some it doesn't matter
If hearts just tend to show it's scars

Real love is like a helpless child
It's sometimes lost and hard to find
Hearts know the cost when it's exiled
For I have crossed that line with mine

Now is the time to find someone
Now is the time to find a friend
Now is the time for love to start
Darling, help yourself to my heart

Now is the time for love to start
Darling, help yourself to my heart
Forever When I Remember You (Larry W Jones 05/14/2017) (song #7169)

Forever a deeper feel of lonely
Forever a deeper shade of blue
Oh, but that feel and shade are only
Forever when I remember you

For now, this confused heart you caused me
Still beats but not as well it used to
I can feel its deeper shade of blue
Forever when I remember you

Forever a deeper feel of lonely
Forever a deeper shade of blue
Oh, but that feel and shade are only
Forever when I remember you

(Instrumental)

Forever a deeper feel of lonely
Forever a deeper shade of blue
Forever a sharper feel of ache
Anytime when I remember you

Nobody else can feel as lonely
Oh, nobody else can feel as blue
As I will feel forever, it's true
Forever when I remember you

Forever a deeper feel of lonely
Forever a deeper shade of blue
Oh, but that feel and shade are only
Forever when I remember you
Foolish Feeling (Larry W Jones 05/17/2017) (song #7170	)

Each day is when I yearn that your shoes will return
And that you will choose to walk back where you belong
I remind myself each day, you might come to stay
But there's a foolish feeling that I might be wrong

Yes, there's a foolish feeling in my heart
A foolish feeling my dream's torn apart
I hold on to hope even though you're gone
It's the most foolish feeling I have known

Every day people say a love can live or die
And every day they know there's a fool such as I
So foolishly I think that in time I'll be fine
It's a foolish feeling that you will still be mine

(Instrumental)

Yes, there's a foolish feeling in my heart
A foolish feeling my dream's torn apart
I hold on to hope even though you're gone
It's the most foolish feeling I have known

Every day people say a love can live or die
And every day they know there's a fool such as I
So foolishly I think that in time I'll be fine
It's a foolish feeling that you will still be mine

So foolishly I think that in time I'll be fine
It's a foolish feeling that you will still be mine
Holder Of My Heart (Larry W Jones 05/18/2017) (song #7171)

You're the help that I depend on
You're the smile of a friendly song
You're my comfort if teardrops start
And you're the holder of my heart

I don't take your love for granted
I'm enchanted by what I see
Older but still a work of art
Dear, you're the holder of my heart

Yes, you're the holder of my heart
And please dear, never set it free
Until the day my life departs
You'll be the holder of my heart

(Instrumental)

You're the help that I depend on
You're the smile of a friendly song
You're my comfort if teardrops start
And you're the holder of my heart

I don't take your love for granted
I'm enchanted by what I see
Older but still a work of art
Dear, you're the holder of my heart

Yes, you're the holder of my heart
The holder of my heart
A Blossom Grew (Larry W Jones 05/18/2017) (song #7172)

A blossom grew up from the ground
That's when I knew love could be found
The gypsies say just give it time
A love will blossom that is mine 

A blossom grew for all to see
And then true love came calling me
Now she will grow inside my bower
My true love, my blossom flower
My garden grew a blossom fine
True love has blossomed that is mine 

(Instrumental)

A blossom grew up from the ground
That's when I knew love could be found
The gypsies say just give it time
A love will blossom that is mine 

A blossom grew for all to see
That's when true love came calling me
Now she will grow inside my bower
My true love, my blossom flower
My garden grew a blossom fine
True love has blossomed that is mine

My garden grew a blossom fine
True love has blossomed that is mine
All The Sad Times Are Past And Gone (Larry W Jones 05/18/2017) (song #7173)

See that southbound travelin' train
Rolling around the bend
It's bringing home my lovely dame
Never to leave again

All the sad times are past and gone
All the bad times are o'er
All the sad times are past and gone
Now I won't cry no more

I hoped so long with tearful eyes
Seems like a long long while
That I would see her big blue eyes
And see her wooing smile

(Instrumental)

All the sad times are past and gone
All the bad times are o'er
All the sad times are past and gone
Now I won't cry no more

Hear that happy singing bluebird
Singing from yonder tree
His song is one I seldom heard
Now he's singing for me

All the sad times are past and gone
All the bad times are o'er
All the sad times are past and gone
Now I won't cry no more
Fool's Gold Motherlode (Larry W Jones 05/20/2017) (song #7174)

Don't need no money man to tell me I'm in ruin
Pockets got more holes than cheese, don't know what I'm doin
But I heard the other day, at least I've been told
I just won a shaft that leads to the motherlode

I see a glow at the end of the shaft
I need a loan on top of what I owe
Now, gotta go see what it's all about
I hope it ain't no fool's gold motherlode

(Instrumental)

Well, my wife and kids thought I was an ATM
Yeah, the kids wanted cars and the wife her big gems
That ain't half the story, other half ain't been told
But I won a shaft that leads to the motherlode

I see a glow at the end of the shaft
I need a loan on top of what I owe
Now, gotta go see what it's all about
I hope it ain't no fool's gold motherlode

(Instrumental)

Well now, they say there's no fool like a fool that's old
But I ain't that old and I went to school to learn
I guess I did get burned but now my fortune's turned
I just won a shaft that leads to the motherlode

I see a glow at the end of the shaft
I need a loan on top of what I owe
Now, gotta go see what it's all about
I hope it ain't no fool's gold motherlode
Letter To My Sweetheart (Larry W Jones 05/20/2017) (song #7175)

I wrote a letter to my sweetheart
Oh, but I don't have her new address
And you should know my darling sweetheart
It's a blow to a heart in distress

I wrote a letter to my sweetheart
Oh, but I can't post it in the mail
We now live so many miles apart
I don't know if it's street, road or dale

(Instrumental)

I wrote a letter to my sweetheart
And it's hard to think she'll never know
That my letter is a work of art
That ends with the words I Love You So

I wrote a letter to my sweetheart
Oh, but I can't post it in the mail
We now live so many miles apart
I don't know if it's street, road or dale

I wrote a letter to my sweetheart
Oh, but I can't post it in the mail
Fraulein Of The Rhine  (Larry W Jones 05/21/2017) (song #7176)

In the Fatherland way over yonder
I held your hand in mine
And where you are now I often wonder
My fraulein of the Rhine 

My fraulein of the Rhine, sweet fraulein of the Rhine
The moon and stars light up the night with you in mind
When you view the heavens as light of love beckons
Remember that you are my fraulein of the Rhine

(Instrumental)

In lonely dreams I still return to you
If only in my mind
And each day with a love that still is true
My fraulein of the Rhine 

My fraulein of the Rhine, sweet fraulein of the Rhine
Waters of the river may cause you to shiver 
But I still see your charm that keeps my heart so warm
Remember that you are my fraulein of the Rhine

Remember that you are my fraulein of the Rhine
Road Runner Road (Larry W Jones 05/21/2017) (song #7177)

Well, you say that over the horizon
There is a new place you've been longing for
But I wonder if what you envision
Is that much better than your own front door

I hope you run into something of cheer 
And all your dreams turn out to be a friend
But keep in mind that I will still be here
When your road runner road comes to an end

It seems that your mind is full of worry
But I haven't heard why you cannot stay
Dear, if you were not in such a hurry
The winds of change wouldn't blow you away

(Instrumental)

The road you will follow may disappear
Or you may lose your way around the bend
But keep in mind that I will still be here
When your road runner road comes to an end

If, down the road, you are feeling lonely
And all the dreams you have don't go as planned
Return to the one who loves you only
For you I still esteem and understand

I hope you run into something of cheer 
And all your dreams turn out to be a friend
But keep in mind that I will still be here
When your road runner road comes to an end
Green Valley (Larry W Jones 05/22/2017) (song #7178)

Well, I'm gonna move to some green valley
Where the sun will come shinin' through
City blues are adding to the tally
Of heartaches over losing you

Yeah, I'm gonna catch an outbound freight train
First one that's rollin' down the track 
Gonna leave this big city full of pain
And I ain't never comin' back

Well, I'm gonna move to some green valley
Where the sun will come shinin' through

(Instrumental)

Well, I'm gonna move to some green valley
Where the sun will come shinin' through
Yeah, I'm gonna leave this tin pan alley
Where music's nothin' but the blues

Yeah, I'm gonna catch an outbound freight train
First one that's rollin' down the track 
Gonna leave this big city full of pain
And I ain't never comin' back

Gonna move to some green valley
Ain't never comin' back
Slope Of The Rockies (Larry W Jones 05/23/2017) (song #7179)

A long trail up the slope of the Rockies
From the Front Range it leads up to the sky
It was blazed by my Mama and Papa
Eighty long years ago before they died

The fireplace in the cabin kept them warm
When the cold snow outside chilled their bodies
In springtime the bluebirds sang with their charm
Same as now up the slope of the Rockies

The bright sun shines on the snow covered peaks
The valleys smile with wild flower bouquets
Two old graves on the slope of the Rockies
Are where Mama and Papa sleep today

(Instrumental)

Mama told me about pioneer days
When she and Papa settled the land here
Papa told me about their mountain ways
On the wild slope of the Rockies so dear

The bright sun shines on the snow covered peaks
The valleys smile with wild flower bouquets
Two old graves on the slope of the Rockies
Are where Mama and Papa sleep today

A long trail up the slope of the Rockies
From the Front Range it leads up to the sky
Canadian April Maple Maid (Larry W Jones 05/24/2017) (song #7180)

Well, I met her in Canada in maple tapping time
She said her name was April and then she inquired of mine 
Wasn't long before we fell in love with a love so true
It was in Canada when the skies were the deepest blue

Now she's my Canadian april maple maid
Just as sweet as maple sugar was ever made
And pretty soon we'll hear wedding bells when they chime
In Canadian maple sugar making time

(Instrumental)

A big band will play the fiddle and guitar promenade
We'll say our vows on a Canada hoedown wedding day
There'll be more tapping than Canada's maples ever seen  
I'll be tapping out love notes with my april maple maid

Now she's my Canadian april maple maid
Just as sweet as maple sugar was ever made
And pretty soon we'll hear wedding bells when they chime
In Canadian maple sugar making time

Yeah, she's my Canadian april maple maid
Just as sweet as maple sugar was ever made
My Canadian april maple maid
My Canadian april maple maid
