Me Against This Lonesome Trail (Larry W Jones 07/19/2017) (song #7201)
 
Trail, please don't lead me on, I need her memory gone
Moon, go away and hide, don't shine on me as I ride
She broke this heart of mine, never even gave a sign
Love's gonna fail when it's me against this lonesome trail 

It's me against this lonesome trail, and love's gonna fail
She's in every canyon shadow, every wide meadow
The tears I cry for her won't dry, they all tell a tale
When it's me against this lonesome trail

(Instrumental)

Trail, where is your long end, how did this long ride begin
Stars, please don't shine tonight, this trail's end is not in sight
This cowboy's heart might fail, her love was to no avail
Love's gonna fail when it's me against this lonesome trail 

It's me against this lonesome trail, and love's gonna fail
She's in every canyon shadow, every wide meadow
The tears I cry for her won't dry, they all tell a tale
When it's me against this lonesome trail

When it's me against this lonesome trail

Mingling Memories With Rye (Larry W Jones 07/20/2017) (song #7202)

Pardon me darlin', I just thought I'd call
Although I just cannot remember why
Maybe the reason is my heart still falls 
When I'm mingling memories with rye

Oh, I know it's so foolish to believe
That you might return to me bye and bye
But dear, my mind is ready to deceive
When I'm mingling memories with rye

(Instrumental)

I promised myself that I'd forget you
Now I find that I'm not that sort of guy
And all of my regrets come right on queue
When I'm mingling memories with rye

Oh, I know it's so foolish to believe
That you might return to me bye and bye
But dear, my mind is ready to deceive
When I'm mingling memories with rye

When I'm mingling memories with rye
When I'm mingling memories with rye

Honey's Gone From My Honey Comb (Larry W Jones 07/22/2017) (song #7203)

(My honey's gone, gone, gone from my honeycomb)

Oh my, my honey's gone from my honeycomb
And therefore, my one love's now my one has-been
She was a winner til she went to dinner
With somebody new in his Mercedes Benz

Oh, the bees all buzz (the bees all buzz)
Round my honey tree (my honey tree)
But the honey bees (the honey bees)
Ain't makin' honey (makin' honey)
He took her in his car trimmed in chrome
My honey's gone from my honeycomb

Oh my, my honey's gone from my honeycomb
And therefore, my one love's now my one has-been
She was a winner til she went to dinner
With somebody new in his Mercedes Benz

(Instrumental)

Oh, the bees all buzz (the bees all buzz)
Round my honey tree (my honey tree)
But the honey bees (the honey bees)
Ain't makin' honey (makin' honey)
He took her in his car trimmed in chrome
My honey's gone from my honeycomb

She was a winner til she went to dinner
With somebody new in his Mercedes Benz
He took her in his car trimmed in chrome
My honey's gone from my honeycomb

Honey's gone from my honeycomb
Honey's gone from my honeycomb

Bridge To Your Memory (Larry W Jones 07/26/2017) (song #7204)

Each new day brings a new way of trying
To construct something that I sorely need
It's not from a parts store that I'm buying
I'm building a bridge to your memory

Now, each and every board is expensive
I've been paying for an eternity
But my plans are complete and extensive
I'm building a bridge to your memory

(Instrumental)

I'm building a new bridge to a heartache
And when I'm done then everyone will see
That what I'm constructing is a mistake
I'm building a bridge to your memory

Now, each and every board is expensive
I've been paying for an eternity
But my plans are complete and extensive
I'm building a bridge to your memory

Yes, my plans are complete and extensive
I'm building a bridge to your memory
Blue-Dot Tail Lights (Larry W Jones 07/26/2017) (song #7205)

The month was November, fifty two
Blue-dot tail lights fading in the night
I watched them disappear, then I knew
I'd remember those blue-dot tail lights

She drove off in the rain while crying
I begged her to stay until daylight
I knew both of our dreams were dying
Just like those fading blue-dot tail lights

Dreams of love faded in November
I watched them disappear out of sight
And every day I still remember
Blue-dot tail lights fading in the night

(Instrumental)

The years have passed and I'm alone now
My future since then has not been bright
I would have stopped her if I’d known how
Blue-dot tail lights fading in the night

Warm Summer has turned to cold Winter
My poor heart’s blue and it’s feeling pain
I watched them disappear out of sight
Blue-dot tail lights fading in the night

Dreams of love faded in November
I watched them disappear out of sight
And every day I still remember
Blue-dot tail lights fading in the night
Riding The Trail On Back Home (Larry W Jones 07/27/2017) (song #7206)

I've rode along and sung a song up the Chisholm Trail so long
Abilene's up ahead where we'll sell the spread
I've rode along and sung a song up the Chisholm Trail so long
And soon I'll be riding the trail on back home 

I wrote a note to Jenny and mailed it to our Texas home
Jenny’s only twenty, I miss her plenty
I wrote a note to Jenny and mailed it to our Texas home
I know my sweet Jenny’s been alone too long

I've rode along and sung a song up the Chisholm Trail so long
And soon I'll be riding the trail on back home

(Instrumental)

The big trail boss and top hand are rough on me and hard to please
Abilene’s up ahead, I need a soft bed
The big trail boss and top hand are rough on me and hard to please
But soon I'll be riding the trail on back home

I've rode along and sung a song up the Chisholm Trail so long
Abilene's up ahead where we'll sell the spread
I've rode along and sung a song up the Chisholm Trail so long
And soon I'll be riding the trail on back home

I've rode along and sung a song up the Chisholm Trail so long
And soon I'll be riding the trail on back home
Mama s Still My San Antonio Rose (Larry W Jones 07/28/2017) (song #7207)

Mama sang country songs while doing clothes
I learned how life in Texas country goes
She's gone now but oh, everybody knows
Mama's still my San Antonio Rose

I was raised close to where the river flows
Deep in the heart of Texas lies a rose
Daddy played fiddle with a rosined bow
Mama's still my San Antonio Rose

(Instrumental)

The Texas two step came naturally
Mama taught me how to scoot my boot feet
No wonder Texas music's what I chose
Mama's still my San Antonio Rose

I was raised close to where the river flows
Deep in the heart of Texas lies a rose
Daddy played fiddle with a rosined bow
Mama's still my San Antonio Rose

Deep in the heart of Texas lies a rose
Mama's still my San Antonio Rose
Waxahachie Waltz (Larry W Jones 07/30/3017) (song #7208)

The dance was in Waxahachie
Beneath a yellow Texas moon
Love was there in Waxahachie
My heart and hers were so in tune

But something was wrong at dawning
She was gone and I was alone
Now I wonder why the soriee
Her Waxahachie waltz with me

(Instrumental)

But something was wrong at dawning
She was gone and I was alone
Now I wonder why the soriee
Her Waxahachie waltz with me

Waxahachie moon way up high
Tonight shine down on her your light
Waxahachie moon way up high
Show me where she waltzes tonight

(Instrumental)

Waxahachie moon way up high
Tonight shine down on her your light
I wish again for that soriee
Her Waxahachie waltz with me
Scraps and Fragments Shreds and Remnants (Larry W Jones 08/03/2017) (song #7209)

Scraps and fragments, shreds and remnants of love’s sad demise
Tell the story of a dream that slowly dies
Torn envelopes and old love letters lie in tatters
As I view them through the cloud of misty eyes

Scraps and fragments, shreds and remnants of what once was dear
Now I’m sorry every morning of the year
I know I’m to blame for putting out love’s burning flame
And I know that I will never hold you near

(Instrumental)

Scraps and fragments, shreds and remnants of your honest love
Are all that’s left from the solemn vows thereof 
Your heart was broken by thoughtless words that were spoken
Words that now sound like a doleful mouring dove

Scraps and fragments, shreds and remnants of what once was dear
Now I’m sorry every morning of the year
I know I’m to blame for putting out love’s burning flame
And I know that I will never hold you near

Scraps and fragments, shreds and remnants of your honest love
One More Ballad (Larry W Jones 08/06/2017) (song #7210)

I've got one more ballad to sing
To sing before I make it home
Before I make it home to love
To love my last ballad will bring

I've got one more ballad to do
To do as one last ballad song
One last ballad song and then leave
And then leave for my home and you

(Instrumental)

Every one-night stand with the band
With the band while out on the road
Out on the road in some new town
In some new town a new bandstand

I've got one more ballad to sing
To sing to a crowd a strangers
A crowd of strangers I don’t know
I don’t know what tonight will bring

(Instrumental)

I've got one more ballad to sing
To sing before I make it home
Before I make it home to love
To love my last ballad will bring

I've got one more ballad to do
To do as one last ballad song
One last ballad song and then leave
And then leave for my home and you

One last ballad song and then leave
And then leave for my home and you
Way Out On The Range (Larry W Jones 07/08/2017) (song #7211)

My Daddy taught me how to ride way out on the range
He taught me how a calf is tied way out on the range
And when he taught me how to brand
He said I'd be a real top hand
And I grew up to be a man way out on the range

I worked my first big cattle drive way out on the range
We moved the herd while side by side way out on the range
And the worst stampede I ever saw
Was when the herd charged up that draw
Those cattle were like bad outlaws way out on the range

Now, I recall when Cookie called way out on the range
He cooked trail lizard stew for all way out on the range
This cowboy never turned so green
When old Cookie turned out so mean
Cookie's stew was the darndest thing way out on the range

(Instrumental)

We passed a covered wagon train way out on the range
I met a gal named Mary Jane way out on the range
My riding range came to an end
Mary Jane's more than just a friend
She's now my closest next of kin way out on the range

I look back on my cowboy life way out on the range
Along with my sweet cowgirl wife way out on the range
I wouldn't trade it for the world
I'm amazed how it all unfurled
Now it's just me and my cowgirl way out on the range
Paper Palace (Larry W Jones 08/12/2017) (song #7212)

I didn’t build you a paper palace
Or compose for you a hollow love song
Just my true love to you I did confess
And those were words that can’t be taken wrong

But you now live in your paper palace
With a hollow love that has now gone wrong
I feel your sorrow in your new address
Your paper palace is an empty song

I didn’t build you a paper palace
I built a mansion made of love that’s strong
But you now live in your paper palace
That isn’t made out of enduring stone

(Instrumental)

I didn’t know you were such a dreamer
If I had, I’d have composed a love song
About someone who was just a schemer
In a paper palace now that she’s gone

But you now live in your paper palace
With a hollow love that has now gone wrong
I feel your sorrow in your new address
Your paper palace is an empty song

I didn’t build you a paper palace
Your paper palace is an empty song
Our Harris County Kingwood Home (Larry W Jones 08/13/2017) (song #7213)

In our Kingwood home in Harris County
In Texas not too far from Galveston
Resides a lady as sweet as honey
And just warm as the Harris County sun

The one I married came on a love boat
I met her where the waves were making foam
And I still sing to her love songs I wrote
There in our Harris County Kingwood home

(Instrumental)

I love Harris County in the Springtime
When the sweet magnolia blossoms bloom
For it was in Kingwood in the Springtime
Where loyal vows were said by bride and groom

The one I married came on a love boat
I met her where the waves were making foam
And I still sing to her love songs I wrote
There in our Harris County Kingwood home

And I still sing to her love songs I wrote
There in our Harris County Kingwood home
Skagway Motherlode (Larry W Jones 08/13/2017) (song #7214)

Dear me, I have lost my loving mother
Here in Skagway Alaska I was born
Where my dear old mother gave me shelter
But now for her memory I will mourn
She fell into my Daddy's gold smelter
And now she has acquired a brand new form

Folks here say she carried a heavy load
Well now folks, of that I cannot denounce
Miners barely lifted her I am told
And they buried my mother by the ounce

(Instrumental)

Now, old Skagway Jack played on his banjo
Oh, he picked out an awful mournful tune 
For mother who made Skagway her abode
When I heard the parson give his sermon
I knew there were no ashes to be strewn
Cause they call her the Skagway motherlode

Folks here say she carried a heavy load
Well now folks, of that I cannot denounce
Miners barely lifted her I am told
And they buried my mother by the ounce

(Instrumental)

Now here I sit in Alaska twilight
In the northern land of the midnight sun
Thinking of my dear mother's heavy load
And I wonder if someday I just might
Stake a claim for a favored Skagway son
A miner for the Skagway motherlode

Folks here say she carried a heavy load
Well now folks, of that I cannot denounce
Miners barely lifted her I am told
And they buried my mother by the ounce

And I wonder if someday I just might
Stake a claim for a favored Skagway son
A miner for the Skagway motherlode
Royal Caribbean Line (Larry W Jones 07/14/2017) (song #7215)

Did Juneau that I've done my time
On Royal Caribbean Line
Juneau's where the midnight sun shines
Hail Royal Caribbean Line

Did Juneau that their ships are good
Their hulls aren't made of rotten wood
Juneau welcomes all their big ships
They're as fast as clipper ships clip

Did Juneau that in Juneau town
Salmon is best for miles around
Captain's table has food that's fine
On Royal Caribbean Line

(Instrumental)
  
Did Juneau that they're made for snow
Juneau is where the cold winds blow
Alaska gold's what you will find
On Royal Caribbean Line

Did Juneau that in Juneau town
Salmon is best for miles around
Captain's table has food that's fine
On Royal Caribbean Line
 
Did Juneau with Juneau's adieu
You'll book a new Alaska cruise
You'll be ready to sail the brine
On Royal Caribbean Line
No Melancholy Melody (Larry W Jones 08/19/2017) (song #7216)

I'm not gonna sing some melancholy melody
And dear, I'm coming your way as soon as soon can be
I've traveled all around and taken the wrong long way
But I'll be singing a brand new happy tune today

My own Daddy once told me, my son, listen to me 
Take my advice, don't sing a melancholy melody
Find someone on whom you can always fully rely
And then you won't have to wipe away tears from your eye

(Instrumental)

Well dear, I thought and decided just the other day
No melancholy melody should ever come your way
So, I'm through with wasting yours and my own precious time
I'm heading back to you and I'll be walking the line

I'm not gonna sing some melancholy melody
And dear, I'm coming your way as soon as soon can be
I've traveled all around and taken the wrong long way
But I'll be singing a brand new happy tune today

I'm not gonna sing some melancholy melody

Perfect Canyon (Larry W Jones 8/20/2017) (song #7217)

Gonna find a perfect canyon
Gonna live there until I die
And I don't need no companion
To ask of me his questions why

Easy times in perfect canyon
Where no bad times are gonna show
There'll be in perfect canyon
No place for old worries to grow

(Instrumental)

I always wanted to go there
To see what good things I can find
Because in that perfect canyon
Won't be no worries left behind

Gonna find a perfect canyon
Gonna live there until I die
And I don't need no companion
To ask of me his questions why

Gonna find a perfect canyon
Gonna live there until I die
Song Of Waxahachie (Larry W Jones 08/21/2017) (song #7218)

Lifelong, nothing is more catchy
Than a song of Waxahachie in the summertime
Houses that look like gingerbread
Are locals nook of old homesteads
Like a song of Waxahachie sung with love and rhyme

Never seen a Texas lassie
As sweet as in Waxahachie where they look so fine
With bangles that look so golden
They entangle hearts so bolden
Like a song of Waxahachie filled with love and wine

(Instrumental)

Lifelong, nothing is more catchy
Than a song of Waxahachie in the summertime
Houses that look like gingerbread
Are locals nook of old homesteads
Like a song of Waxahachie sung with love and rhyme

That old Texas town is classy
Much more than old Tallahassee ever hoped to be
All the people there are neighbors
Simple farmers, ranchers, bakers
Their old song of Waxahachie suits me to a tee
Too Much Lost To Now Regain (Larry W Jones 08/22/2017) (song #7219)

Too many trails behind me
Broken rails that I now see
Like horseshoe nails causing pain
Too much lost to now regain

Too many sunsets have gone
Too many debts I now own
All love and treasures have drained
Too much lost to now regain

(Instrumental)

I rode across the desert
Searched for a trail to divert
Found no cool water or rain
Too much lost to now regain

Too many sunsets have gone
Too many debts I now own
All love and treasures have drained
Too much lost to now regain

Too much lost to now regain
I'll Feed The Jukebox (Larry W Jones 08/27/2017) (song #7220)

Well she left town and wouldn't be back soon
She left a mem'ry in an old barroom
It plays a tune like a fam'ly to me
I treat it like a dear family tree

I'll feed the jukebox while she's gone
I need to hear those country songs
It plays her memory til dawn
I'll feed the jukebox while she's gone

(Instrumental)

Please barkeep, keep the cooler full for me
She left with a jeweller to Tennessee
I'm almost broke just like a chessboard pawn
I'll feed the jukebox while she's gone

I'll feed the jukebox while she's gone
I need to hear those country songs
It plays her memory til dawn
I'll feed the jukebox while she's gone

It plays her memory til dawn
I'll feed the jukebox while she's gone
On Lavender Lane (Larry W Jones 08/28/2017) (song #7221)

On lavender lane, I hear love's refrain
When I walk with you on lavender lane
And the lilac hue of the roses too
Know that I love you on lavender lane 

Sweet incense has commenced and it's so plain
I'm convinced there's love on lavender lane
Lavender lane, a street I can't explain
But I know love lives on lavender lane

(Instrumental)

Lavender lane is lined with live oak trees
And the sweet flowers lure the honey bees
I'm sure you know why I love this terrain
I'm in love with you on lavender lane

On lavender lane, I hear love's refrain
When I walk with you on lavender lane
And the lilac hue of the roses too
Know that I love you on lavender lane

On lavender lane, I hear love's refrain
When I walk with you on lavender lane
Blue Is The Rose (Larry W Jones 09/14/2017) (song #7222)

Stroll down in the vale my sweet bonnie maid
Stroll down in the vale to your lov-er
You choose the place and our vows will be made
And then you will be mine for-ever 

Blue is the rose that bends down in repose
That grows in yonder vale
Blue is the rose for as everyone knows
Even true love can fail

(Instrumental)

Twas down in green Kilarney's vale we strayed
The moon shined down on our endeavor
The stars shined so bright on that magic night
As our vows were made there for-ever

Blue is the rose that bends down in repose
That grows in yonder vale
Blue is the rose for as everyone knows
Even true love can fail

(Instrumental)

Hard was the parting and it will not fade
Vows of love were not meant to se-ver
Twas down in the vale my sweet bonnie maid
Said that she would be mine for-ever

Blue is the rose that bends down in repose
That grows in yonder vale
Blue is the rose for as everyone knows
Even true love can fail
Down Canyon Trail (Larry W Jones 09/15/2017) (song #7223)

I ride through the sand with my saddle bags at hand
Riding away down canyon trail
I’ve ridden this trail before, I don’t know what for 
Chasing my dreams down canyon trail

My Daddy once said, listen son
You’re much too young to ride and run
I know that’s what you’ve been wishing
But here’s a cane pole for fishing

(Instrumental)

One day I filled my saddle bags 
And saddled up the old gray nag
I rode far over hill and dale
A twelve year old down canyon trail

I ride through the sand with my saddle bags at hand
Riding away down canyon trail
I’ve ridden this trail before, I don’t know what for 
Chasing my dreams down canyon trail

(Instrumental)

Well, in time I married a wonderful sweet gal
Then came the day her face turned pale
For she had discerned that I couldn’t be corralled
My dreams were still down canyon trail

I ride through the sand with my saddle bags at hand
Riding away down canyon trail
I’ve ridden this trail before, I don’t know what for 
Chasing my dreams down canyon trail
Hillbilly Waltz (Larry W Jones 09/15/2017) (song #7224)

A hillbilly waltz the band was playing
As we were swaying around the dance floor
Someone else was by the door surveying
The one waltzing girl that I so adored

I felt a tap on my shoulder
A dance with my girl was his thought
Somehow I knew it was over
He danced the next hillbilly waltz

A hillbilly waltz the man befriended
And I knew the song's meaning from the start
Before that hillbilly waltz was ended
I felt beginnings of a broken heart

(Instrumental)

I felt a tap on my shoulder
A dance with my girl was his thought
Somehow I knew it was over
He danced the next hillbilly waltz

A hillbilly waltz the man befriended
And I knew the song's meaning from the start
Before that hillbilly waltz was ended
I felt beginnings of a broken heart

Before that hillbilly waltz was ended
I felt beginnings of a broken heart
Reserve A Table For One (Larry W Jones 09/16/2017) (song #7225)

Hello bartender, work day's almost done
Could you please reserve a table for one
Set up a cold beer for one who needs cheer
And load the jukebox with songs I hold dear

She doesn't love me and she told me so
It's all over now and why, I don't know
Sounds odd to reserve a table for one
Me and a beer as the jukebox plays on

OK bartender, in a corner is fine
Load the jukebox for a dime at a time
Thanks for reserving a table for one 
I'll be there at six when work day is done

(Instrumental)

She doesn't love me and she told me so
It's all over now and why, I don't know

OK bartender, in a corner is fine

Back At Your Front Door (Larry W Jones 09/17/2017) (song #7226)

Now, I've been driving trucks for so long
In black of night some roads were took wrong
I've looked every place and maybe more
And here I am, back at your front door

I want to knock but then turn away
I'm just a jock of the long highway
A thousand miles of diesel's loud roar
And here I am, back at your front door

(Instrumental)

I want to knock but then turn away
I'm just a jock of the long highway
A thousand miles of diesel's loud roar
And here I am, back at your front door

I bed down in the cab, try to sleep
At a rest stop on a lonely street
Crank it up by around three or four 
Wishing I was back at your front door

Wishing I was back at your front door
And here I am, back at your front door
Rememorable You (Larry W Jones 09/18/2017) (song #7227)

Who remembers all the flowers I sent
Who remembers all the places we went
In each springtime, summer, winter and fall
Just recall, it's rememorable you

Rememorable you, I love you as you are
Rememorable you, more than deserved by far
I was a dreamer, I know you were too
My dream won't change, rememorable you

(Instrumental)

Who remembers those movie Looney Tunes
Who remembers drive-ins under the moon
I had a ball and someone else did too
Just recall, it's rememorable you

Rememorable you, I love you as you are
Rememorable you, more than deserved by far
I was a dreamer, I know you were too
My dream won't change, rememorable you

I was a dreamer, I know you were too
My dream won't change, rememorable you
A Lot Got Forgotten (Larry W Jones 09/19/2017) (song #7228)

Sometimes I think back of long yesterday
And recall all the steps we have trodden
But there are some things that got in the way
Since then and now a lot got forgotten

We lost the battle for love in the war
Well, I guess we forgot what love was for
We went from the top straight to the bottom
Since then and now a lot got forgotten

(Instrumental)

We lost the battle for love in the war
Well, I guess we forgot what love was for
We went from the top straight to the bottom
Since then and now a lot got forgotten

Now, a lot gets lost when two minds don't talk
And we both were blind and now count the cost 
Since then and now a lot got forgotten
Since then and now a lot got forgotten
