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
Sounds odd to reserve a table for one
Me and a beer as the jukebox plays on

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
Some Nights Are Star Filled (Larry W Jones 09/22/2017) (song #7229)

I vowed to love you and you know it's true
Though I'm alone now, you know I still do
When night surrounds me, a dream I still see
But now it seems that it wasn't to be

Some nights are star filled and some nights are dark
Some nights a dream falls far short of its mark
Sometimes cold rain falls and puts out the spark
Some nights are star filled and some nights are dark

(Instruumental)

When I awake love, I don't know myself
But all I know is that love's on the shelf
Each day and night seems much too long to bear
In each day and night dream you're always there  

Some nights are star filled and some nights are dark
Some nights a dream falls far short of its mark
Sometimes cold rain falls and puts out the spark
Some nights are star filled and some nights are dark
Western Trails (Larry W Jones 09/23/2017) (song #7230)

Western trails, have you ever traveled western trails
It's quite a scene when they cross over streams
Bubbling tunes that make the cowboys sing

Western trails, have you ever traveled hills and dales
Cowboys and cowgirls all give it a whirl
Say nothing's better in this whole wide world

Western skies, old Montana has the biggest skies
It's where the bison roam and eagle flies
And it's home with western family ties

(Instrumental)

Western trails, have you ever traveled western trails
It's quite a scene when they cross over streams
Bubbling tunes that make the cowboys sing

Old Dan, the horse I ride over the western land
In all weather, trails we ride together
Western trails, where cowboys ride tall and tanned

There's no wonder why western trails are inviting
It has to do with life that's exciting
Oh-di-lay-ee-ay, di-lay-dee-oh, de-lay-ee
Better Left Behind (Larry W Jones 09/29/2017) (song #7231)

Each time I disturb the cinders
An old time flame is what I find
Although the feeling is tender
Some dreams are better left behind

I know I shouldn't dream of you
But you have lingered on my mind
Even though I know it's so true
Some dreams are better left behind

(Instrumental)

I thought I had burned my bridges
But that old smoke is here to last
It drifts from over far ridges
In night time dreams I thought were past

I try to be strong through weakness
But now I see my heart is blind
And my mind is full of bleakness
Some dreams are better left behind

Although the feeling is tender
Some dreams are better left behind
Raining Lovedrops (Larry W Jones 09/30/2017) (song #7232)

Dear, you say you love me and I don't even have to guess
Cause it's raining lovedrops in my garden of happiness
And every time we meet someone they see I'm all aglow
It's raining lovedrops and the satisfaction of it shows

Sometimes when my heart beats it skips a beat or maybe two
Cause it's raining lovedrops in my garden of love with you
And every time we kiss I know just how much I am blessed
Cause it's raining lovedrops in my garden of happiness

(Instrumental)

Sometimes when my heart beats it skips a beat or maybe two
Cause it's raining lovedrops in my garden of love with you
And every time we kiss I know just how much I am blessed
Cause it's raining lovedrops in my garden of happiness

Yes, it's raining lovedrops in my garden of happiness
Moon Of The Twilight Range (Larry W Jones 09/30/2017) (song #7233)

Moon of the twilight range
Lighting up every night
Moon of the twilight range
Shine on my herd tonight

Dogies are still grazing
Light their way until dawn
Watch them while they're pacing
Until the night is gone

Like campfires in the night
Moonglow is oh so strange
Dogies moo at your sight
Moon of the twilight range

(Instrumental)

Dogies are still grazing
Light their way until dawn
Watch them while they're pacing
Until the night is gone

Like campfires in the night
Moonglow is oh so strange
Dogies moo at your sight
Moon of the twilight range

Moon of the twilight range
Shine on my herd tonight
Dream Sweeper In Nashville (Larry W Jones 10/03/2017) (song #7234)

All roads lead to Nashville, from Little Rock or Birmingham
They come from Louisville and Atlanta for the sights and glam
It's where guitars ring and cowboys sing about cowgirl dreams
And where a dream sweeper sweeps up the pieces in Nashville

I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee 
When the sun comes up in Nashville, there's only me
Cleaning up the streets of dreams that were not to be
I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee 

Well, it's a lonely place when the sun comes up in Nashville
Mournful looks on the faces of dreamers can bring a chill
A country boy comes looking for joy and the stage is key
But when the sun comes up I crank it up and sweep his dreams

I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee 
When the sun comes up in Nashville, there's only me
Cleaning up the streets of dreams that were not to be
I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee

(Instrumental) 

I sweep up the songs of love that fall like a broken dove
They were just show on music row when fallen from above
Dreams were shattered and now are scattered around music town
Swept off the sidewalks and into the streets after sundown

I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee 
When the sun comes up in Nashville, there's only me
Cleaning up the streets of dreams that were not to be
I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee 

Cleaning up the streets of dreams that were not to be
I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee
I Love To See Her Walking By (Larry W Jones 02/22/2018) (song #7235)

Here she comes, she's in my view again
And I know, just what I'll do again
I could lie, and say I will not cry
Though I know, I love to see her walking by

When she left, my heart was so bereft
She was all my world of dreams possessed
Now the tears will flow from both my eyes
Breathe a sigh, I love to see her walking by

(Instrumental)

I don't know just why she said goodbye
There's no reason I know to apply
Play a sad song for this lonesome guy
I'll sing along when I see her walking by

Here she comes, she's in my view again
And I know, just what I'll do again
I could lie, and say I will not cry
Though I know, I love to see her walking by

Oh I know, I love to see her walking by
Cowboys Are All From Mars (Larry W Jones 04/11/2018) (song #7236)

One night I dreamed I was on Mars
Way out among the distant stars
I was rounding up the longhorns
And singing to new dogies born

That night I dreamed about Mary
But that dream was so contrary
She took the stagecoach to Venus
Now there’s long lightyears between us

Cowboys are all from Mars
Cowgirls are from Venus
It don’t take no genius
Cowboys are all from Mars

(instrumental)

That night I dreamed about Mary
But that dream was so contrary
She took the stagecoach to Venus
Now there’s long lightyears between us

Well, I tried to lasso her moon
But Venus doesn’t have a one
Besides, old pard, there ain’t no June
On Venus or Mars to marry

Cowboys are all from Mars
Cowgirls are from Venus
It don’t take no genius
Cowboys are all from Mars

Yeah, cowgirls are from Venus
But cowboys are all from Mars
You Changed Everything About Me (Larry W Jones 06/15/2018) (song #7237)

I felt unloved and you know that was true
But now that you're mine I am never blue
Life from now on will never be the same
You're the dream I thought I would never see
You changed everything about me
But my name

You answered yes though it took a full year
You thought it over then you called me dear
Loving you will be my eternal aim
My life you rearranged for all to see
You changed everything about me
But my name

(Instrumental)

The only thing I changed was your last name
With your love my poor heart is now aflame
My dear, I can see in your eyes of blue
Your love for me is true and not a game
You changed everything about me
But my name

You answered yes though it took a full year
You thought it over then you called me dear
Loving you will be my eternal aim
My life you rearranged for all to see
You changed everything about me
But my name
I Hope Tomorrow Is Not Like Yesterday (Larry W Jones 7/15/2018) (song #7238)

I hope tomorrow is not like yesterday
Maybe her memory won't be here to stay
Gradually I might escape this tragedy
I hope tomorrow is not like yesterday

I hope for a new love, for one that will last
Not like the one that's still in my recent past
Maybe tomorrow sorrow won't come my way
I hope tomorrow is not like yesterday

(Instrumental)

I hope for a new love, for one that will last
Not like the one that's still in my recent past
Maybe tomorrow sorrow won't come my way
I hope tomorrow is not like yesterday

Gradually I might escape this tragedy
I hope tomorrow is not like yesterday
Gradually I might escape this tragedy
I hope tomorrow is not like yesterday
From Ache To Ache (Larry W Jones 7/15/2018) (song #7239)

My friends told me that you would surely leave
They said that my poor heart would sorely grieve
Now I know all about my big mistake 
My heart lives day to day, from ache to ache

I had planned on a true love for all time
I never dreamed that love could be a crime
Now I know how it feels when a heart breaks
My heart lives day to day, from ache to ache

(Instrumental)

I had planned on a true love for all time
I never dreamed that love could be a crime
Now I know how it feels when a heart breaks
My heart lives day to day, from ache to ache

Now I know how it feels when a heart breaks
My heart lives day to day, from ache to ache
My heart lives day to day, from ache to ache
From ache to ache
I'll Give You All Of My Best (Larry W Jones 7/16/2018) (song #7240)

I recall the young cowboy said to her
Words that came straight from his heart, not his head
I recall them both riding together
Way out across the wide open range spread

And I recall his kind way of saying
Darling, has anything today gone wrong
And I recall their laughter so pleasing 
When the young cowboy would sing her this song 

I'll give you all of my best dear
All the love I've ever possessed
I'll love you until death brings on its chill
Or the sun ceases to set in the west

They would ride down to town in the evening 
I recall how I'd see them riding by
Their love was seen to be more than a dream
By the bright twinkle in both of their eyes 

As a young cowpoke he bought me taffy
And she didn't mind when I tagged along
I recall he sometimes called her lassie
And the young cowboy would sing her this song

I'll give you all of my best dear
All the love I've ever possessed
I'll love you until death brings on its chill
Or the sun ceases to set in the west
 
Now he rides down to town in the evening
And he hitches his pony as before
I see smiling but inside he's grieving
The old cowboy has no one to care for

I know he feels her riding beside him 
Way out across the wide open range spread
He rides to the graveyard when the sun sets
And every day gives her all of his best

I'll give you all of my best dear
All the love I've ever possessed
I'll love you until death brings on its chill
Or the sun ceases to set in the west
Horses And Saddles (Larry W Jones 7/18/2018) (song #7241)

Horses and saddles (Horses and saddles)
I’m rich but as poor as can be

If horses were gold I’d be a big ranch tycoon
But all dreams that I hold are as blue as the moon
My sweet Betsy has left me and broken my heart
This big ranch house is lonely since we've been apart

Horses and saddles (Horses and saddles)
I’m rich but as poor as can be
Horses and saddles (Horses and saddles)
Oh Betsy please come back to me

(Instrumental)

If horses were gold I’d be a big ranch tycoon
But lost dreams of love can't live to saddle the moon
For my sweet darlin' Betsy my love is still true
Oh please come back to me and I'll prove it to you

Horses and saddles (Horses and saddles)
I’m rich but as poor as can be
Horses and saddles (Horses and saddles)
Oh Betsy please come back to me

Horses and saddles (Horses and saddles)
I’m rich but as poor as can be
Teardrops Pooling In A Stream (Larry W Jones 7/18/2018) (song #7242)

Teardrops Pooling In A Stream
There's no fooling what they mean
I fear that my eyes look like
Teardrops pooling In a stream

Teardrops in a stream can become a river
When a true love becomes nothing to you
And my true love for you became nothing
Like my teardrops in a river of blue

(Instrumental)

Teardrops Pooling In A Stream
There's no fooling what they mean
I fear that my eyes look like
Teardrops Pooling In A Stream

Teardrops will cycle back to the heavens
When the stream and river flows to the sea
Oh, and there will be no overruling
My dreams and teardrops pooling in a stream
Songbird Singer (Larry W Jones 7/18/2018) (song #7243)

Well, I'm a songbird singer, that I am told
I'm a dead ringer for an album of gold
And when downtown Nashville hears all about me
A rich bell ringer will bow down on his knee

I'll sing at the Ryman and Opry's big stage
My first paycheck will swell as more I get paid
I'm a songbird singer, I sing all the scales
My royalties will swell with gold record sales

(Instrumental)

Then I woke up but the night dream lingered on
I picked up my guitar and strummed a sad song
A songbird singer I had been in dreams told
A real  dead ringer for an album of gold

Well, Nashville will never hear all about me
A rich bell ringer I guess I'll never see
Yeah, I'm a songbird singer, that I was told
But here in Nashville I'm still out in the cold

Well, I'm a songbird singer, a dead ringer
For an album of gold
Roadways Run Eternal (Larry W Jones 7/19/2018) (song #7244)

Well, these roadways run eternal
I've driven some from end to end
I log them all in my journal
With many songs that I have penned

Yeah, these roadways run eternal
On parkways and byways I've been
Sometimes I think I'm nocturnal
But I just take it on the chin

(Instrumental)

Livin' out of cheap old motels
And greasy diners that I know
But I love that diesel too well
Life on the super slab ain't slow

Yeah, these roadways run eternal
On parkways and byways I've been
Sometimes I think I'm nocturnal
But I just take it on the chin

Yeah, these roadways run eternal
Like many songs that I have penned
Four Winds Of Lonely (Larry W Jones 7/19/2018) (song #7245)

The four winds of lonely blow strong tonight
The doors to my heart are shuttered with fright
It will be this way until morning light
The four winds of lonely blow strong tonight

Winter days are short and twilight comes on
Lonely nights are so long since you've been gone
Cold are my arms and they cannot get warm
The four winds of lonely blow strong tonight

(Instrumental)

A big freeze is due, the weatherman said
I will not blame you, but just me instead
Just when this will end I'll know by my skin
The four winds of lonely blow strong tonight

Winter days are short and twilight comes on
Lonely nights are so long since you've been gone
Cold are my arms and they cannot get warm
The four winds of lonely blow strong tonight

The four winds of lonely blow strong tonight
Cowboy Ballads In My Soul/b> (Larry W Jones 7/20/2018) (song #7247)

Well, I've been ridin' western trails
With my hoss and guitar so long
Sayin' howdy to all the folks
Who come to hear my cowboy songs
Not knowin' I'm bent but not broke

There's cowboy ballads in my soul
Western music for young and old
Keep ridin' and writin' til I fold
There's cowboy ballads in my soul

(Instrumental)

A fam'ly came from Chicago
Brought their dog and eleven kids
Said they heard of my western show
So I gave 'em all I could give

There's cowboy ballads in my soul
Western music for young and old
Keep ridin' and writin' til I fold
There's cowboy ballads in my soul

(Instrumental)

When the trail ends and shadows fall
I know just what I'd like to do
Have one last show and show 'em all
How a cowboy can sing a tune

There's cowboy ballads in my soul
Western music for young and old
Keep ridin' and writin' til I fold
There's cowboy ballads in my soul

Keep ridin' and writin' til I fold
There's cowboy ballads in my soul
Black Gold (Larry W Jones 7/22/2018) (song #7248)

Well, I grew up a ranch hand on land that was mostly sand
When I grew up tall and tanned, I asked Becky for her hand
But she saw in me nothing grand so she turned me down cold
Neither of us ever thought the land was covering black gold

I told Becky that I loved her and would provide a home
But Becky wanted a manor house and limo with chrome
She broke my heart when she said she wouldn't be comin' round
Becky drove away over the sand where black gold abounds

(Instrumental)

Where once stood a ranch house, a manor house stands now
Oil wells pump black gold on the pastures by the branded cows
Becky came by the other day and she was mighty bold
Said she'd love to live in my manor house made from black gold

Well, Becky dear, it's always good to see you on bare sand
Recall that I gave you a fair chance to accept my hand
But I'm still just a poor ranch hand when all is said and told
Goodbye Becky dear and say adios to my black gold

Goodbye Becky dear and say adios to my black gold
I Babbled To The Brook (Larry W Jones 7/22/2018) (song #7249)

I babbled to the brook flowing through the canyon
A riddle that nobody knew of
The brook figured out what the riddle was about
That it looked like I was in love

The brook babbled to the wind what shape I was in
The wind whispered to clouds above
The brook and the wind and the clouds knew my beloved
Another's heart was spoken of

The brook rose in anger and became a mad flood
Flowed like a wild river along
The wind and the clouds turned the deep canyon to mud
Drowning out my only love song

I babbled to the brook that was now a wild river
My secret has made me shiver
The cold wind and the dark clouds had now brought about
A broken heart they had delivered

(Instrumental)

In time the winds abated and clouds disappeared
The wild river is now a stream
The wind is a breeze as it whispers through the trees
Lost love is now just a bad dream

I babbled to the brook flowing through the canyon
You, the wind and clouds are my friends
But please don't you fiddle with my secret riddle
If my poor heart loves once

I babbled to the brook flowing through the canyon
You, the wind and clouds are my friends
Happy Texas (Larry W Jones 7/23/2018) (song #7250)

I found her in Colorado
She was on a visit then gone
She told me all about Happy
In Texas where she called her home

Happy's next to Amarillo
The Texas town without a frown
The old cowboys were so happy
To find water they could draw down

I may just leave Colorado
And go to find old Happy Town
It's somewhere near Amarillo
Where my Texas dream can be found

Happy's next to Amarillo
The Texas town without a frown
The old cowboys were so happy
To find water they could draw down

(Instrumental)

I know she's happy in Texas
And in Texas she'll always be
I'm sad here in Colorado
Happy Texas is calling me

Happy's next to Amarillo
The Texas town without a frown
The old cowboys were so happy
To find water they could draw down

She's happy in Happy Texas
Hope she'll be happy to see me
I Dreamed My Dream Awake (Larry W Jones 7/25/2018) (song #7251)

Last night I dreamed that you had gone
My mind had more than it could take
I thought my heart would break by dawn
Last night I dreamed my dream awake

I awoke from my dream in tears
And listened for your breath to make
Your breathing brought joy to my ears
Last night I dreamed my dream awake

(Instrumental)

I awoke from my dream in tears
And listened for your breath to make
Your breathing brought joy to my ears
Last night I dreamed my dream awake

Oh how empty my life would be
If from me your love you should take
That's what I dreamed til I could see
Last night I dreamed my dream awake

Last night I dreamed my dream awake
For A Heart Like Mine (Larry W Jones 7/26/2018) (song #7252)

For a heart like mine with an even beat
A tune in cadence makes me feel complete
That's why it makes sense that the feeling's fine
When your love's in tune for a heart like mine

Sing a line or two with a melody
And a rhyme or two for the harmony
Then let it play until the sunlight shines
It will be OK for a heart like mine

(Instrumental)

For a heart like mine that is in such bliss
I feel the fine art from your every kiss
Just play the violins in four four time
Who could ask for more for a heart like mine

Sing a line or two with a melody
And a rhyme or two for the harmony
Then let it play until the sunlight shines
It will be OK for a heart like mine

Then let it play until the sunlight shines
It will be OK for a heart like mine
Trail Of The Ponderosa Pine (Larry W Jones 7/28/2018) (song #7253)

Out on the western slope of the Rockies
On the trail of the Ponderosa pine
At twilight time I tried to read the sign
Was her heart and mine together in time

Now every June I saddle and wander
Out on the western slope of the Rockies
I wonder why love's stars did not align
On the trail of the Ponderosa pine

(Out on the western slope of the Rockies
On the trail of the Ponderosa pine)

(Instrumental)

Out on the western slope of the Rockies
I still ponder as to what might have been
If both our hearts had been with love entwined
On the trail of the Ponderosa pine

Now every June I saddle and wander
Out on the western slope of the Rockies
I wonder why love's stars did not align
On the trail of the Ponderosa pine

(Out on the western slope of the Rockies
On the trail of the Ponderosa pine)
Campfire Melodies (Larry W Jones 7/29/2018) (song #7254)

Campfire melodies
Sing some campfire melodies 

Out on the range after driving cattle
We cowboys built a fire inside a ring
Then we would all rest against our saddles
And sing along with guitars we would bring

Campfire melodies
All us cowboys just loved to sing along
Campfire melodies
Sing another old campfire cowboy song

(Instrumental)

Campfire melodies
Sing some campfire melodies 

Campfire melodies all told a story
Of some sweet cowgirl or whiskey and gin
Sometimes they were about nature's glory
Or some cowboy tale that had never been

Now that all the cattle drives are over
I recall all of them with clarity
And best of all when I was a drover
Was singing all those campfire melodies

Campfire melodies
Sing some campfire melodies
My Blue Moon (Larry W Jones 7/30/2018) (song #7255)

Well, my blue moon quit shining
I wonder where it could be
For you my heart’s still pining
But my blue moon I can’t see

I wish we were together
When the moon begins to rise
But in such cloudy weather
My blue moon is out of sight

(Instrumental)

On months when a blue moon comes
I think of vows that we made
It’s then that my heart succumbs
To grief as my blue moon fades

I wish we were together
When the moon begins to rise
But in such cloudy weather
My blue moon is out of sight

I hope the moon shines its light
To be my blue moon tonight
Love s Silver Lining (Larry W Jones 7/30/2018) (song #7256)

You’re the first to see a silver lining
When dark storm clouds form out across the sea
You’re the first when there needs some defining
As to what love is really meant to be

So dear, why am I the first in sorrow
When I see a dream that is not to be
Could it be that in some fine tomorrow
You’ll see love’s silver lining is just me

(Instrumental)

You’re the first to hear a red robin sing
When the Spring time brings new leaves on a tree
You’re the first to see all of everything
But my love is the last thing you can see

So dear, why am I the first in sorrow
When I see a dream that is not to be
Could it be that in some fine tomorrow
You’ll see love’s silver lining is just me

Could it be that in some fine tomorrow
You’ll see love’s silver lining is just me
Where There Always Is A Train (Larry W Jones 7/30/2018) (song #7257)

I used to be a hobo until it drove me insane
I know every logo from California up to Maine
I said I’d never ride again to anyplace I’ve been
But new sunsets are calling where there always is a train

I hopped on an old boxcar that was rolling western bound
Stopped in Santa Fe long enough to hop another main
That track carried me all the way to the Pacific sea
I’ll always be a hobo where there always is a train

I used to be a hobo until it drove me insane
I’ll always be a hobo where there always is a train

(Instrumental)

No one will be waiting at the train station very long
A hobo’s life don’t fit a wife who knows what’s right or wrong
I know I’m still a hobo when I hear that whistle strain
I’ll always be a hobo where there always is a train

I hopped on an old boxcar that was rolling western bound
Stopped in Santa Fe long enough to hop another main
That track carried me all the way to the Pacific sea
I’ll always be a hobo where there always is a train

I used to be a hobo until it drove me insane
I’ll always be a hobo where there always is a train
Cinders By The Track (Larry W Jones 7/31/2018) (song #7258)

Well, the box car was rolling and he hopped aboard to ride
He wanted to see the land he loved and the wide countryside
His sweetheart looked from the siding as the train wheels went clack
Then he blew a kiss that burned in the cinders by the track

Adios, goodbye, he called out through the smoke and steam
Adios, goodbye, he rode the train to spots never seen
Always was a vagabond and for trains he had a knack
He left his sweetheart weeping in the cinders by the track

(Instrumental)

He likes to ride the box cars when he sees them rolling through
Traveling the tracks is the only thing he likes to do
With dreams of love unravelling for women he adored
He waits along a siding for a chance to hop aboard 

Adios, goodbye, he called out through the smoke and steam
Adios, goodbye, he rode the train to spots never seen
Always was a vagabond and for trains he had a knack
He left his sweetheart weeping in the cinders by the track

(Instrumental)

He knows his sweetheart loves him even when he’s moving on
And sometimes he wonders why she loves those old freight train songs
But when he hears a whistle moan he shoulders his sack
And leaves his sweetheart standing in the cinders by the track

Adios, goodbye, he called out through the smoke and steam
Adios, goodbye, he rode the train to spots never seen
Always was a vagabond and for trains he had a knack
He left his sweetheart weeping in the cinders by the track
The Good You ve Done (Larry W Jones 8/02/2018) (song #7259)

Well, I never dreamed that I ever would
See the day when all I could see was good
But you turned my life from sorrow to fun
Dear, you will never know the good you’ve done

You’re still here to see my hair turn to gray
And you were there to brush my tears away
You have been my moon, my daylight and sun
Dear, you will never know the good you’ve done

(Instrumental)

I learned to smile when dark clouds came my way
For miles you’ve been the same in every way
And when storm winds blow you’re my caring one
Dear, you will never know the good you’ve done

You’re still here to see my hair turn to gray
And you were there to brush my tears away
You have been my moon, my daylight and sun
Dear, you will never know the good you’ve done
Living My Life Simply For You (Larry W Jones 8/04/2018) (song #7260)

Dear, simply for you is my motive for living
Coated over with love are the things that you do
There is no strife when taking is less than giving
Living my life simply for you

Each beat of your heart against mine is rewarding
Each day at the start is as refreshing as dew
Sweet love words from you are not from a recording
Living my life simply for you

(Instrumental)

Each beat of your heart against mine is rewarding
Each day at the start is as refreshing as dew
Sweet love words from you are not from a recording
Living my life simply for you

Our life is so simple and I like it that way
It’s just a symbol of true love meant for two
And dear, every day I’ll strive to keep it that way
Living my life simply for you

You are my wife and I love you
Living my life simply for you
Jim Bridger (Larry W Jones 8/04/2018) (song #7261)

Jim Bridger was a mountain man
The Rocky Mountains he called home
Jim Bridger was a huntin’ man
For pelts of beavers he was known

Jim Bridger couldn’t read or write
A blacksmith apprentice when young
But toward the West he set his sight
And his lone wanderings far flung

A toast I lift to Jim Bridger
It’s no boast to that man of fame
If I could drift with Jim Bridger
A mountain man would be my aim

Jim Bridger knew Colorado
And all along the Great Divide
The Green River and Yellowstone
O’re mountain passes he did ride

A toast I lift to Jim Bridger
It’s no boast to that man of fame
If I could drift with Jim Bridger
A mountain man would be my aim

Jim Bridger was a mountain man
The Rocky Mountains he called home
Jim Bridger was a mountain man
Along with Jim I’d like to roam
Country Songwriter (Larry W Jones 8/04/2018) (song #7262)

I only wanna be a country songwriter
Although I’m never gonna be a Nashville star
I can write country songs that are sad or brighter
That real country singers can sing with their guitars

I don’t wanna be a shiny rhinestone cowboy
Cause I know I’m not all that polished anyway
I only wanna be a country songwriter
And write some good country songs anyone can play

(Instrumental)

All I ask from life is to just let me write it
Stories made up of three cords and the truth will do
And there’s no use put my pencil down and fight it
This country songwriter will write some songs for you

I don’t wanna be a shiny rhinestone cowboy
Cause I know I’m not all that polished anyway
I only wanna be a country songwriter
And write some good country songs anyone can play

I only wanna be a country songwriter
And write some good country songs anyone can play
Oh Colorado (Larry W Jones 8/04/2018) (song #7263)

Another day is done with majesty on high
Another day will come where mountains touch the sky
Colorado, you know just how I love her so
Oh Colorado, why’d you let her say goodbye

She once said the beauty of your lofty mountains
Would be her one and only home sweet mountain home
Colorado, when I returned to your mountains
Oh Colorado, my sweet mountain girl was gone

(Instrumental)

Another night is done with teardrops in my eyes
Another day has come with my love not in sight
Colorado, I know you hate to see me cry
Oh Colorado, why’d you let her say goodbye

She once said the beauty of your lofty mountains
Would be her one and only home sweet mountain home
Colorado, when I returned to your mountains
Oh Colorado, my sweet mountain girl was gone

Another day will come where mountains touch the sky
Oh Colorado, why’d you let her say goodbye
Footsteps Walking Back To Me (Larry W Jones 8/05/2018) (song #7264)

I heard sounds of footsteps walking back to me

Last night in the silence of my lonely room
I heard sounds of footsteps walking back to me
When I awakened in early morning gloom
The sound had disappeared like waves of the sea

Last night in the silence of my lonely room
I heard sounds of footsteps walking back to me
They were your footsteps I only could assume
But I was hearing what now will never be

(Instrumental)

Oh, last night I was talking to my pillow
Telling it that you’d be walking back to me
Tears were falling as from a weeping willow
I knew your footsteps were just a dreamer’s plea

Last night in the silence of my lonely room
I heard sounds of footsteps walking back to me
They were your footsteps I only could assume
But I was hearing what now will never be

Last night in the silence of my lonely room
I heard sounds of footsteps walking back to me
Seasons Of Belongings (Larry W Jones 8/05/2018) (song #7265)

Dear, one year I have left to be with you
Such a short time when forever’s in view
There’s reasons for seasons of belongings
Hear what I say as I share them with you

Springtime belongs to the red red robbins 
The song of robbins to you I will bring
But that is not all of my belongings
I belong here with you when robbins sing

Summer belongs to the red red roses
Blooms of red roses to you I will bring
But that is not all of my belongings
For there is more than just summer and spring

(Instrumental)

Autumn belongs to leaves that are turning
It grieves me to think that seasons have flown
But seasons of belongings are burning
I’ll bring leaves of Autumn ‘fore they are gone

Winter belongs to cold winds and snowflakes
Snowflakes for you I will bring in when here
For sake of seasons I give you reasons
Why all belongings I give to you, dear

Dear, one year I have left to be with you
Such a short time when forever’s in view
There’s reasons for seasons of belongings
Hear what I say as I share them with you
No Longer Will I Be The Roving Kind (Larry W Jones 8/06/2018) (song #7266)

Darling, do you hear that sad whippoorwill
He’s just like me as he calls from the hill
I now feel stronger, I’ve made up my mind
No longer will I be the roving kind

Dear, I left you alone on that mountain
Too long have been the days that I’m countin’
I’m sorry that I must have been so blind
No longer will I be the roving kind


(Instrumental)

You’ll see me come riding on a sorrel
On the way I’ll pick some mountain laurels
They’ll be so pretty in your hair entwined
My roving days I now have left behind

Dear, I left you alone on that mountain
Too long have been the days that I’m countin’
I’m sorry that I must have been so blind
No longer will I be the roving kind

I’m sorry that I must have been so blind
No longer will I be the roving kind
With Every Phase Of The Moon (Larry W Jones 8/07/2018) (song #7267)

Every time the moon goes round
I always get starry eyed
Every time the moon goes round
I want you here by my side

When the moon’s in first quarter
I’m the first to feel this way
With every phase of the moon
I will love you night and day

When the moon’s waxing gibbous
Here is what I have to say
With true love it can give us
I will love you night and day

(Instrumental)

When the moon’s in third quarter
I will sing with words of love
We’ll stand like bricks and mortar
With true love’s song from above

When the moon’s full and golden
It makes my heart and mind swoon
It’s with you I’m beholden
With every phase of the moon

Every time the moon is new
I want to sing a new tune
A song about only you
With every phase of the moon

By night and day I’ll love you
With every phase of the moon
Riding My Shadow Down The Trail (Larry W Jones 8/07/2018) (song #7268)

Well, when I was a young Texas cowpoke
My Daddy bought a pony just my size
And when I rode him by a blackjack oak
He looked just like a shadow to my eyes

At the Spring roundup I followed along
And rode my pony over hill and dale
In the evening I spoke up like a song
Dad, I’m riding my shadow down the trail

I learned how to be a cowboy that Spring
Riding and roping to the last detail
I learned the joy that a girl’s love would bring
While just riding my shadow down the trail

(Instrumental)

Time has travelled on and something went wrong
The love I found is hidden by a veil
As I ride along I add more lines to my song
Yes, I’m riding my shadow down the trail

Well, those good times were such long years ago
I’ve tried to return but to no avail
The signs of the times are now filled with woe
I’m still riding my shadow down the trail

At the Spring roundup I followed along
And rode my pony over hill and dale
In the evening I spoke up like a song
Dad, I’m riding my shadow down the trail

I’ve tried to return but to no avail
I’m still riding my shadow down the trail
New Owners On The Range (Larry W Jones 8/07/2018) (song #7269)

The highway sign said Palestine was half a mile ahead
So, I took the exit just in time to see the old homestead
The sun was low as I drove slow before the day grew dark
Down there I was cornbread fed as a cowboy from the start

The old ranch house still looked the same
But the mailbox had a new name
Four wheelers sat in the locale
Where Daddy built the big corral
It was so sad to see the change
But there’s new owners on the range

The old bunkhouse had been torn down
No wranglers to be seen around
There still stood the cottonwood tree
Where I would swing out in the breeze
Looks familiar but now so strange
Since there’s new owners on the range

(Instrumental)

The old ranch house still looked the same
But the mailbox had a new name
Four wheelers sat in the locale
Where Daddy built the big corral
It was so sad to see the change
But there’s new owners on the range

The highway sign said Palestine was half a mile ahead
So, I took the exit just in time to see the old homestead
Queen Of The Rodeo (Larry W Jones 8/08/2018) (song #7270)

You’re the queen of the rodeo
You’re in all the cowboy’s arms
You have that certain cowgirl glow
That goes with all your other charms

Cowboys lay their heart at your feet
When their wide eyes upon you gaze
I want a chance for us to meet
Cause I might love you for always

(Instrumental)

May I take you to the barn dance
We can dance to the do-si-do
I hope to have some sweet romance
With the queen of the rodeo

You’re the queen of the rodeo
You’re in all the cowboy’s arms
You have that certain cowgirl glow
That goes with all your other charms

You’re the queen of the rodeo
I’d like to hold you in my arms
Sweetie Pie (Larry W Jones 8/08/2018) (song #7271)

Well, ever since she grew so high
I’ve tried to woo that sweetie pie
Makes no matter how hard I try
Cain’t gain a yard on sweetie pie

If I’m needing pie, pass me some of sweetie pie
My my feeling high I’m in love with sweetie pie

I’m so in love with sweetie pie
Pass me some of my sweetie pie
She has bright eyes blue as the sky
I’m quite in love with sweetie pie

If I’m needing pie, pass me some of sweetie pie
My my, feeling high, I’m in love with sweetie pie

(Instrumental)

Now, I don’t know if she can cook
Her cook book cover has good looks
I’ll read her recipe and try
To make her my sweet sweetie pie

If I’m needing pie, pass me some of sweetie pie
My my, feeling high, I’m in love with sweetie pie

Apple, lemon and blueberry
All those pies can make me merry
But only one’s made for to die
My little maid, my sweetie pie

If I’m needing pie, pass me some of sweetie pie
My my, feeling high, I’m in love with sweetie pie
Serve me some of my sweetie pie
Appearances Are Over (Larry W Jones 8/08/2018) (song #7272)

He appeared out of nowhere
And asked for the microphone
A hush sounded through the crowd
As his voice found words with song
 
Life I see in the mirror
And life is not what appears
Now I see it so clearer
Memories of wasted years

Appearances are over
Old country fans have all gone
I once appeared in clover
But now no one sings along

On the road I had no wife
But I had fame all around
On the road was my whole life
Til someone called in the clown

My appearances are over, now listen to my song
I will sing my songs over until my days are gone

The old cowboy closed his eyes
And sang loud with his last breath
Appearances are over
I now disappear in death

My appearances are over, now listen to my song
I will sing my songs over until my days are gone
I Lost Someone I Never Had (Larry W Jones 8/09/2018) (song #7273)

Darling, I said that I’d forget
And my poor heart is trying too
But now I live in deep regret
For I am still in love with you

I keep on thinking and thinking
How losing you makes me so sad
Though my hopes of love are sinking
I lost someone I never had

(Instrumental)

Darling, if you had just loved me
I would have been happy, not sad
But my conscience has now judged me
I lost someone I never had

I keep on thinking and thinking
How losing you makes me so sad
Though my hopes of love are sinking
I lost someone I never had

Though my hopes of love are sinking
I lost someone I never had
Cowboys Riding Down The Trail (Larry W Jones 8/10/2018) (song #7274)

Mama dear, oh Mama dear, I’ve run from the big corral
I’m out of breath as can be for a Texas prairie gal
A dust cloud was forming and I climbed to the high top rail
Mama dear, oh Mama dear, gotta tell you in detail

That we’ve got cowboys riding, cowboys riding
We’ve got cowboys riding down the trail
They’re just up the trail and riding down here fast
Some cowboys are visiting at last
We’ve got cowboys riding down the trail 

Mama, cut that apple pie, I’ll put on my gingham dress
I’m almost seventeen and I sure want to look my best
We’ll serve cool sasparilla out on our big ranch house porch
A cowboy just might take me to the barn dance after church 

Yeah, we’ve got cowboys riding, cowboys riding
We’ve got cowboys riding down the trail
They’re just up the trail and riding down here fast
Some cowboys are visiting at last
We’ve got cowboys riding down the trail

(Instrumental) 

Mama dear, oh Mama dear, our ranch is far out of town
Seems like almost a year since we’ve had cowboys coming round
Mama dear, oh Mama dear, please ask Daddy without fail
If we can take the buckboard to the dance down in the dale

Cause we’ve got cowboys riding, cowboys riding
We’ve got cowboys riding down the trail
They’re just up the trail and riding down here fast
Some cowboys are visiting at last
We’ve got cowboys riding down the trail

We’ve got cowboys riding down the trail
Simple Words To Say (Larry W Jones 8/10/2018) (song #7275)

Some people simply never find
Time to say words that are so clear
When simple words to say are kind
Like saying how I love you dear

Simple words to say right out loud
Don’t need to be loud in a crowd
Just whisper to her anyway
Love words are simple words to say

(Instrumental)

Sometimes I love you sounds the same
Go ahead, say them anyway
Just be sure love is not a game
Allure with simple words to say

Simple words to say right out loud
Don’t need to be loud in a crowd
Just whisper to her anyway
Love words are simple words to say

As the words of love songs convey
Love’s heard with simple words to say
The Bonnie Lea (Larry W Jones 8/13/2018) (song #7276)

Alone she stood on the burning sand
With a yearning gaze across the sea
She didn’t know that her sailor man
His home bound days she would no more see

Oh where oh where is her sailor man
His sailing ship was the  Bonnie Lea
As captain, ‘fore the mast he did stand
But he was cast to the deep blue sea

(Instrumental)

Deep within her sad and grieving soul
She knew her sailor man and his ways
The Bonnie Lea wrecked upon the shoals
And now he lies ‘neath the deep blue waves

Oh where oh where is her sailor man
His sailing ship was the  Bonnie Lea
As captain, ‘fore the mast he did stand
But he was cast to the deep blue sea

His sailing ship was the  Bonnie Lea
But he was cast to the deep blue sea
I Missed You Then And Now (Larry W Jones 8/13/2018) (song #7277)

Last night a whippoorwill was calling
As twilight was falling
I missed you then and now
Yesterday I was sad and lonely
Dreaming of you only
I missed you then and now

Dear, I was deep in contemplation
Heart in palpitation
I missed you then and now
And the sweet charms that I missed the most
Was arms in love engrossed
I missed you then and now

(Instrumental)

The nightingales were softly singing
Memories were ringing
I missed you then and now
As blue nighttime shadows came stealing
There came the same feeling
I missed you then and now

Dear, I was deep in contemplation
Heart in palpitation
I missed you then and now
And the sweet charms that I missed the most
Was arms in love engrossed
I missed you then and now

Last night a whippoorwill was calling
As twilight was falling
I missed you then and now
I missed you then and now
Ain t You Even Gonna Smile (Larry W Jones 8/14/2018) (song #7278)

Ain’t you even gonna smile
I’ve walked a long country mile
What’s more it’s you I adore
Ain’t you even gonna smile

Don’t go puttin’ on some style
Let me stay here for awhile
Heaven’s sake my heart don’t break
Ain’t you even gonna smile

Ain’t you even gonna smile
I’ve walked a long country mile
What’s more it’s you I adore
Ain’t you even gonna smile

(Instrumental)

Now don’t you be in denial
Don’t you put my heart on trial
I love you so don’t you know
Ain’t you even gonna smile

Ain’t you even gonna smile
I’ve walked a long country mile
What’s more it’s you I adore
Ain’t you even gonna smile

Ain’t you even gonna smile
Farewell Dear Heart Farewell (Larry W Jones 8/15/2018) (song #7279)

I saw her at the station
I watched her through the window
New arms held her flirtation
So, farewell dear heart, farewell

The train has left the station
Pain is my situation
I’ve lost her love I can tell
So, farewell dear heart, farewell

I’m going away to cry
And try to forget somehow
Now I have no sweetheart belle
So, farewell dear heart, farewell

(Instrumental)

The train has left the station
Pain is my situation
I’ve lost her love I can tell
So, farewell dear heart, farewell

I might go down to the sea
To see the big ocean swells
To drown means nothing to me
So, farewell dear heart, farewell

I saw her at the station
I watched her through the window
New arms held her flirtation
So, farewell dear heart, farewell

So, farewell dear heart, farewell
It’s No Small Thing To Fall In Love (Larry W Jones 8/15/2018) (song #7280)

Of all the things that can come true
Are the songs that cowboys sing of
But little things can make you blue
It’s no small thing to fall in love

All Texans are known for tall tales
Small things grow up far above
But even loud mouth Texans yell
It’s no small thing to fall in love

Ain’t nothing like riding the trail
Holding little reins in your gloves
But dames need a heart of big scale 
It’s no small thing to fall in love

(Instrumental)

Ain’t nothing like riding the trail
Holding little reins in your gloves
But dames need a heart of big scale 
It’s no small thing to fall in love

A ranch doesn’t have to be big
To raise cows you can push and shove
But your turtledove is no twig
It’s no small thing to fall in love

Of all the things that can come true
Are the songs that cowboys sing of
But little things can make you blue
It’s no small thing to fall in love
What Kind Of Lasso (Larry W Jones 8/15/2018) (song #7281)

Well, I tried to ride away but stumbled
And I didn’t get too far down the trail
Oh, I know that I was lowly humbled
When I tried to leave but to no avail

What kind of lasso have you thrown on me
Was it bull hide for a bull headed mind
What kind of lasso have you thrown on me
What kind of leather has my heart entwined

The steed you ride is indeed a cutter
I’ve been cut out for all cowboys to see
It’s like I’ve been thrown into the gutter
What kind of lasso have you thrown on me

(Instrumental)

The steed you ride is indeed a cutter
I’ve been cut out for all cowboys to see
It’s like I’ve been thrown into the gutter
What kind of lasso have you thrown on me

When I pulled on my old boots yesterday
You pulled a fast one and left to be free
But my old boots keep walking back your way
What kind of lasso have you thrown on me

Yes my old boots keep walking back your way
What kind of lasso have you thrown on me
Yes my old boots keep walking back your way
What kind of lasso have you thrown on me
Bronco Busting Man (Larry W Jones 8/15/2018) (song #7282)

He was a bronco buster, champion all around
He went to rodeos and laid his number down
He busted broncos in Houston and Abilene
All the broncos were big and tough and always mean

He drove into Dallas to risk his life and limb
A cowgirl named Alice took a good look at him
Put his number in the hat and waved to the fans
Alice had the number of that bronco busting man

Her dear mother said daughter please don’t treat me so
That cowboy’s a trotter that you don’t even know
But Alice said mother I have a different plan
In Texas I’ll marry that bronco busting man

(Instrumental)

Her dear mother said daughter please don’t treat me so
That cowboy’s a trotter that you don’t even know
But Alice said mother I have a different plan
In Texas I’ll marry that bronco busting man

I don’t want a farmer who’s always in the dirt
I don’t want a railroad man so those I avert
I don’t want a fisherman the smell I can’t stand
All I want is that cowboy bronco busting man

But Alice said mother I have a different plan
In Texas I’ll marry that bronco busting man
Yes Alice said mother I have a different plan
In Texas I’ll marry that bronco busting man
Old Boxcars Roll To Places New (Larry W Jones 8/16/2018) (song #7283)

Well, this ain’t no passenger train
Just an old boxcar on the main
I’ve been riding it through the night
Be somewhere new at morning light

I’ve seen cities, I’ve been around
I’ve seen pitiful run down towns
And most I’ll never return to
Old boxcars roll to places new

I’ve seen bald eagles flying high
I’ve heard hoot owls hoot in the night
I’ve made some friends black, white and red
A hobo village for my head

(Instrumental)

Well, this ain’t no passenger train
Just an old boxcar on the main
I’ve been riding it through the night
Be somewhere new at morning light

I’ve seen cities, I’ve been around
I’ve seen pitiful run down towns
And most I’ll never return to
Old boxcars roll to places new

And most I’ll never return to
Old boxcars roll to places new
Dixie Winging Home (Larry W Jones 8/17/2018) (song #7284)

Well, the sun is gone and cold Winter’s comin’ on
Here I am still on the lam in this Northern zone
The wild goose is Dixie winging across the moon
And I’ll be singing Dixie, Dixie winging soon

Winging south to Dixie
Up here I’m all alone
I feel like a gypsy
I’m Dixie winging home

(Instrumental)

I’ve got a kissin’ cousin where bees are buzzin’
And a dozen kinfolks down on the Orleans strand
Party is a-waitin’ so I ain’t hesitatin’
I’m singin’ Dixie and wingin’ to Dixieland

Winging south to Dixie
Up here I’m all alone
I feel like a gypsy
I’m Dixie winging home

(Instrumental)

My grandad and crawdads are down in Louisian
Gonna pole his pirogue across the bayou land
The wild goose is Dixie winging across the moon
And I’ll be singing Dixie, Dixie winging soon

Winging south to Dixie
Up here I’m all alone
I feel like a gypsy
I’m Dixie winging home

I feel like a gypsy
I’m Dixie winging home
An Upright Man (Larry W Jones 8/18/2018) (song #7285)

I was a rover walking down your street
I was a rover walking down your street
Good gal you weren’t even talking to me

I’ll be on the next outbound out of town
I’ll be on the next outbound out of town
Gal you put this upright man downright down

Here I am singing the blues
Here I am singing a downright blues song
Here I am singing the blues
I’m an upright man feeling downright wronged

(Instrumental)

I was a rover walking down your street
I was a rover walking down your street
Good gal you weren’t even talking to me

I see a boxcar with an open door
I see a boxcar with an open door
Good gal you won’t be seeing me no more

Here I am singing the blues
Here I am singing a downright blues song
Here I am singing the blues
I’m an upright man feeling downright wronged
Lot Of Rehearsing To Forget (Larry W Jones 8/19/2018) (song #7286)

I know that I’ll recover from you soon
So just give me a year or two
By that time I’ll be over and immune
From shedding daily tears for you

It takes lots of rehearsing to forget
Every day I rehearse a lot
Each and every day it gets worse and yet
I still rehearse with all I’ve got

I rehearse daily saying that we’re through
For only you I know that’s true
With rehearsal there comes reversal too
Why am I still in love with you

(Instrumental)

In a year or two I’ll be starting new
Been rehearsing a month since June
I just tell my heart to believe it’s true
That I’ll recover from you soon

It takes lots of rehearsing to forget
Every day I rehearse a lot
Each and every day it gets worse and yet
I still rehearse with all I’ve got

I rehearse daily saying that we’re through
For only you I know that’s true
With rehearsal there comes reversal too
Why am I still in love with you

It takes lots of rehearsing to forget
No Words To Convey (Larry W Jones 8/19/2018) (song #7287)

All my friends will wonder what I have been under
Oh, they will be asking bout you
And just why I seem so lonely day after day
I will have no words to convey

Why I’m in pain I will not say
I will have no words to convey
To explain why you went away
I will have no words to convey

All my friends see I’m blue but what thing can I do
The end came right out of the blue
Why my world is gray and just why you went astray
I will have no words to convey

(Instrumental)

Darling if you ever yearn someday to return
Know that I still love you today
And dear, I won’t ask why you treated me this way
I will have no words to convey

Why I’m in pain I will not say
I will have no words to convey
To explain why you went away
I will have no words to convey

Darling if you ever yearn someday to return
Know that I still love you today
And dear, I won’t ask why you treated me this way
I will have no words to convey
Tapestry Of Stars (Larry W Jones 8/19/2018) (song #7288)

It was a wonderful sight that we saw that night
When the stars twinkled in the heavens clear to Mars
It was clearly a delight to know all was right
Love tapped you and me with a tapestry of stars

A tapestry of stars dear
Illuminated above
A bright tapestry of stars
Shined from heaven on our love

(Instrumental)

Heavenly stars were twinkling in their apogee
And in a wink we knew that all would be alright
Heavenly stars were twinkling in their tapestry
And our heavenly love was on the brink that night

A tapestry of stars dear
Illuminated above
A bright tapestry of stars
Shined from heaven on our love

It was clearly a delight to know all was right
Love tapped you and me with a tapestry of stars
Be Truthful With Me (Larry W Jones 8/19/2018) (song #7289)

Be truthful with me love on far trails where you ride
Follow your star but please return here to my side
And wherever you’re riding down trails hear my plea
Whether o’er hill or dale love be truthful with me

Please don’t break my poor heart love and don’t be untrue
My heart will ache love in sleep or daydreams of you
All I want dear is for you to truthfully be
In love with me only and be truthful with me

(Instrumental) 

My poor heart would break dear if you were untrue
Asleep or awake dear I'll dream about you
For you are my darling you're all that I see
If you really love me be honest with me

Please don’t break my poor heart love and don’t be untrue
My heart will ache love in sleep or daydreams of you
All I want dear is for you to truthfully be
In love with me only and be truthful with me

All I want dear is for you to truthfully be
In love with me only and be truthful with me
Starlight On The Rio Colorado (Larry W Jones 8/20/2018) (song #7290)

When there’s starlight on the Rio Colorado
Lonely thoughts wander far in memory of you
As I ride along the Rio Colorado
My heart is longing for your sight that’s overdue

We pledged our love in the Rio’s moonlight shadows
When shadows fall, words I recall, I love you too
When there’s starlight on the Rio Colorado
If you return I’ll be there to share love renewed

(Instrumental)

It is you for whom my heart is always pining
If you return I will have found Eldorado
When the moon is just brand new in silver lining
And there’s starlight on the Rio Colorado

We pledged our love in the Rio’s moonlight shadows
When shadows fall, words I recall, I love you too
When there’s starlight on the Rio Colorado
If you return I’ll be there to share love renewed

When there’s starlight on the Rio Colorado
If you return I’ll be there to share love renewed
Cresson Mine Of Cripple Creek (Larry W Jones 8/20/2018) (song #7291)

Up in the pines of Colorado
Down in the mine they went every week
Hear the story of two men who died
In the Cresson mine of Cripple Creek

June sixteen of nineteen twenty two
Was on a Friday with weather cool
Mines were dug with dynamite and picks
Murray Colgin was aged forty six

Thomas Bailey was only twenty
This miner’s life should have seen plenty
His dear Mom and Dad were all he had
How this story ends is really sad

Bailey had a notion not to work
But he worked his shift with Chuck Matthews
Suddenly the sound of falling rock
A boulder twenty five tons let loose

Young Bailey died of a broken neck
And Murray Colgin died at midnight
The Gazette Telegraph spread the news
Two Cresson miners had paid their dues

Now folks my sad story has ended
I know the ending has sounded bleak
When Thomas and Murray descended
In the Cresson mine of Cripple Creek
Year Of The Klondike Gold (Larry W Jones 8/21/2018) (song #7292)

Lads, mark this date for I’ll now tell you straight
About miners in Alaska so cold
Twas in the year of eighteen ninety eight
In Alaska’s year of the Klondike gold

Of jolly comrades and folly they had
For they were all men with hearts brave and bold
Lads, none were e’er sad and none were e’er bad
In Alaska’s year of the Klondike gold

Now, there was old Jess who never would stress
Like all the rest to the digs he would go
One full moon in June his end was the flume
In Alaska’s year of the Klondike gold

There was rag tag Jim who never was grim
Whose life and his story now must be told
He found a lode but the ground did explode 
In Alaska’s year of the Klondike gold

There was sly Dan a good guy of a man
All hearts of the shy ladies he would hold
The charge was a dud he payed with his blood
In Alaska’s year of the Klondike gold

Now, of all the gold miners I’ve ever knowed
None are here left but their stories now told
For wealth and glory we all braved the cold
In the booming year of the Klondike gold
On The Trail To Cheyenne (Larry W Jones 8/21/2018) (song #7293)

Each day when the sun is sinking
And eagles have spread their wingspan
Stars in the heavens start winking
On the trail to Cheyenne

I hear sad whippoorwills calling
Down from their hills of western sand
As I ride shadows are falling
On the trail to Cheyenne

(Instrumental)

In Cheyenne there’ll be music
For me and my cayuse named Dan 
I’ll sing along with cowboy song
On the trail to Cheyenne

Well here I am outside of town
Bacon is frying in a pan
Tonight I won’t have to bed down
On the trail to Cheyenne

Hummm Hummm
On the trail to Cheyenne
Jackalope Bill (Larry W Jones 8/22/2018) (song #7294)

At a roundup on the Concho, Outskirts of old San Angelo
One jumpin’ hoss was hard to rope, Cause boss he was a jackalope
Cross twixt rabbit and antelope, Ornery cuss as ever seen
One cowboy had to show his skill, He was known as Jackalope Bill

Bill saddled that mix of fury, Wrangled up and down in the dust
Bill thought he was judge and jury, Till his Jackalope ride went bust
Jackalopes are big mean rabbits, Mixed with antelopes they don’t drag
Jackalope Bill lost his habits, Of Texas cowboys in their brag

The cinch broke right in the middle, And upward Jackalope Bill flew
The ascension wasn’t little, Jackalope Bill went out of view
At that roundup on the Concho, Outskirts of old San Angelo
Bill’s last words were like sourdough, From a far distance soft and low

Watch out boys cause I’m still ridin’, Up here more Jackalopes abide
So I’m up here and decidin’, Which Jackalope to rope ‘n ride
Since those old San Angelo days, Out on the Concho roundup grounds
Texas cowboys have parted ways, And Jackalope Bill ain’t been found
Song Of San Antone (Larry W Jones 8/22/2018) (song #7295)

Listen close to my song and surely you will hear
That it is not a dream that I share all alone
This song of San Antone all hearts ever hold dear
For cowboys seem to love a song of San Antone

San Antone is where we hear a soft melody
That sounds as if it drifts down to us from above
It stays like a gift wrapped around our memory
A song of San Antone is a sweet song of love

(Instrumental)

San Antone is where we hear a soft melody
That sounds as if it drifts down to us from above
It stays like a gift wrapped around our memory
A song of San Antone is a sweet song of love

The moon o’er San Antone is so dear to our hearts
It glows like a yellow rose that’s lovingly grown
Such a rose so tender we’d never tear apart
As we sing again our sweet song of San Antone

(Instrumental)

San Antone is where we hear a soft melody
That sounds as if it drifts down to us from above
It stays like a gift wrapped around our memory
A song of San Antone is a sweet song of love

The song we sing is full of love words that we know
Mariachi bands play while cowboys sing along
It’s a song of love sung beside the Alamo
Our sweet rose so young is the song of San Antone
Wreck Of The Emily Reed (Larry W Jones 8/22/2018) (song #7296)

Now listen ye mates and please give me heed
I’ll tell the tale of the Emily Reed
A down-east clipper and not a cutter
Her first sail was case oil to Calcutta

In eighteen eighty she sailed out from Maine
For eighteen years she fought the wind and rain
From New York to Liverpool she set sail
And around the world sought the ports from gales

Now, the Emily Reed had loaded the scales
With a cargo of coal from New South Wales
On Valentine’s Day in nineteen oh eight
The coast of Oregon would see her fate

A lighthouse was there on Tillamook Rock
Time was off on her chronometer clock
Lookouts strained to see where waves would take her 
The Emily Reed had sailed through breakers

Then there came a mighty crunch and shudder
Emily Reed split from bow to rudder
Walls of green water poured over the ship
And brave sailors screamed from quivering lips

Now, Captain Kessel and his wife, they knew
They would lose some of the Emily’s crew
Seven brave sailors were the men they lost
In night time waters their bodies were tossed

Lads, this ends my story of a fair ship
That sailed all the oceans at a fair clip
Beware sailors to my story give heed
This tale of wreck of the Emily Reed
Colt Forty Five (Larry W Jones 8/23/2018) (song #7297)

Into the county of Sabine a Ranger rode 
He had come to settle matters so they were told
Didn’t matter if he took ‘em dead or alive
Said the Texas Ranger with a Colt forty five
A Colt forty five

Sabine’s Scrappin’ Valley was river bottom land
And hiding in the thickets was a wanted man
Conner was an outlaw and off the land survived
Waiting in an ambush for the law to arrive
The law to arrive

His feuding killed neighbors Kit Smith and Eli Lowe
There were many others said neighbors in the know
The sheriff asked Waco for a plan to derive
Send a Texas Ranger with a Colt forty five
A Colt forty five

The Ranger made his way to the town of Hemphill
It was in November the wind was very still
The folks in town worried that he would not survive
This new Texas Ranger with a Colt forty five
A Colt forty five

Now, Willis Conner was known for his deadly shot
By a Ranger he wasn’t about to be caught
His gun was always loaded ready for a fight
And now a Texas Ranger rode within his sight
Rode within his sight

He rose up from the ambush with his pistol drawn
The fateful ending is still told about in song
Conner met his end a faster bullet arrived
From the Texas Ranger with a Colt forty five
A Colt forty five

If you’re in Texas and you drive through Waco town
The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame is close around
Hear the story of a lawman that’s not contrived
He’s a Texas Ranger with a Colt forty five
A Colt forty five
Motherlode (Larry W Jones 8/23/2018) (song #7298Dug by hand in hard rock he worked around the clock

In the mountains abode he found the motherlode
With his hammer in one hand the rocks turned to sand
And his chisel found the vein of the motherlode

He was where he belonged and he was standing strong
He filled up his load where the yellow metal showed
No one was ever told where he got all his gold
Never did a single soul find his motherlode

He went out one day to search for more yellow pay
The vein had run out but he gave another shout
When his hammer and chisel struck another node
A happy man in his hand a new motherlode

(Instrumental)

He went out one day to search for more yellow pay
The vein had run out but he gave another shout
When his hammer and chisel struck another node
A happy man in his hand a new motherlode

A miner’s life gets tough when he can’t get enough
Of the money that he feels inside he is owed
He heard dynamite explode and his body bowed
The old miner sold his soul for the motherlode

A miner’s life gets tough when he can’t get enough
The old miner sold his soul for the motherlode
Today I Brand You A Cowboy (Larry W Jones 8/23/2018) (song #7299)

Few men are fortunate to be cowboys
City slickers can’t ride for the brand
The cowboy code is wrapped in tough leather
That holds a hot branding iron in both hands

Today I brand you a cowboy
Your face is hardened by the wind
A tall though young top hand cowboy
Pard, I’m glad to call you my friend

(Instrumental)

Your old Daddy raised you as a cowboy
He knew that you would do the fam’ly fine
And pard, today I brand you a cowboy
Just keep the cowboy code close in your mind

Today I brand you a cowboy
Your face is hardened by the wind
A tall though young top hand cowboy
Pard, I’m glad to call you my friend

(Instrumental)

So, cowboy saddle up and chase your dreams
Show those city slickers what cowboy means
Keep your face against the wind and stand tall
As you ride along sing the cattle call

Today I brand you a cowboy
Your face is hardened by the wind
A tall though young top hand cowboy
Pard, I’m glad to call you my friend

Today I brand you a cowboy
Pard, I’m glad to call you my friend
El Dorado Hills (Larry W Jones 8/24/2018) (song #7300)

In daylight and twilight from daybreak to sundown
Through valleys and mountains for sake of the thrills
A man will chase his dream until he wears a frown
As he keeps searching for those El Dorado Hills

Cowboy, ride on, ride on until you lose your way
Golden rainbows are somewhere ahead of you still
Your face is now wrinkled and your hair has turned gray
But ride on in search of those El Dorado Hills

(Instrumental)

Your Daddy once told you what a man’s gotta do
Life ain’t worth livin’ if all you have are the frills
Boy you’re just a mortal and your years will be few
So ride on in search of those El Dorado Hills

Oh, your past love knows that you’ll get lost in the snow
For she can see blue clouds forming and feel the chill
So, ride cowboy ride to where you feel you must go
More men have died to find those El Dorado Hills

So, ride cowboy ride to where you feel you must go
More men have died to find those El Dorado Hills
Rock Pile Yard (Larry W Jones 8/27/2018) (song #7301)

Well, the judge said son you’re freedom is done
Goin’ to prison for goin’ on the run
Ten long years Is gonna be your reward
Doin’ time is hard in a rock pile yard

On a ball and chain in a prison yard
Watchin’ all the time is a prison guard
Oh, I was fine til I stepped out of line
Doin’ time is hard in a rock pile yard

(Instrumental)

They call me by my number not my name
Nobody else but me I guess to blame
Reputation’s marred and my cell is barred
Doin’ time is hard in a rock pile yard

A heavy nine pound hammer in my hand
Turnin’ heavy rocks into pebble sand
I stammer when I talk like a retard
Doin’ time is hard in a rock pile yard

That gal of mine’s free on the boulevard
Doin’ time is hard in a rock pile yard
Soul Food And Cornbread (Larry W Jones 8/27/2018) (song #7203)

When I was just a toddler no bigger than a swaddler
My Mama looked me in the eye and said
Listen son if you’re gonna grow there’s something you must know
A man’s gotta eat soul food and cornbread

Mama kept feedin’, I kept eatin’ soul food and cornbread
Soul food in the mornin’, cornbread at night
Chicken fried steak and fatback is how I was fully fed 
I grew into a big boy overnight

If you got bursitis, colitis or the swellin’ gout
Read the label and see what it’s about
Hog jowl with ham hocks and ox tail is what the label read
At the checkout was soul food and cornbread

(Instrumental)

Mama kept feedin’, I kept eatin’ soul food and cornbread
Soul food in the mornin’, cornbread at night
Chicken fried steak and fatback is how I was fully fed 
I grew into a big boy overnight

Invited to a party, I thought I would eat hearty
They served up barley and calamari
Well, I slipped into the kitchen and then my face turned red
The caught me eatin’ soul food and cornbread

Pickled pigs feet, black-eye peas, collard greens and key lime pie
I’ve got an eye for soul food and cornbread
Walking Down The Low Road Home (Larry W Jones 8/27/2018) (song #7303)

Just walking down the low road home
I’m walking down the low road home
Yes, I lost my way but now I can say
I’m walking down the low road home

Walking toward a morning sunrise
Won’t be no darkness in the skies
I’m tired and no more will I roam
I’m walking down the low road home

Just walking down the low road home
I’m walking down the low road home
Yes, I lost my way but now I can say
I’m walking down the low road home

When I left home and said goodbye
I thought my dreams were flying high
Low and behold I held a bone
I’m walking down the low road home

Just walking down the low road home
I’m walking down the low road home
Yes, I lost my way but now I can say
I’m walking down the low road home

This old road is weary and long
Things got dreary when I went wrong
I wear a frown but feeling strong
I’m walking down the low road home

Just walking down the low road home
I’m walking down the low road home
Yes, I lost my way but now I can say
I’m walking down the low road home
Prairie Flowers For Mary (Larry W Jones 8/27/2018) (song #7304)

Her ranch and mine were close on the prairie
In a one room school we sat side by side
I waited for the day to ask Mary
If she would consent to be my sweet bride

Some prairie flowers for Mary I gave
When came the day to ask for her small hand
She smelled the blooms and said I must be brave
Her Dad was not an understanding man

Mary’s mother had died when she was young
And her Dad was bitter at the whole world
He wasn’t the kind to hold his sharp tongue
He said I couldn’t marry his young girl

(Instrumental)

Some prairie flowers for Mary I gave
When came the day to ask for her small hand
She smelled the blooms and said I must be brave
Her Dad was not an understanding man

Days of my youth are gone and I’m saddened
Some prairie flowers for Mary I gave
But the pain is more than I imagined
Prairie flowers for Mary on her grave

Some prairie flowers for Mary I gave
Prairie flowers for Mary on her grave
Cattleman’s Ball (Larry W Jones 8/28/2018) (song #7305)

Once again we meet for a drive of the cattle
The trail is long so we’ll ride it with care
Just like old times we’ll hear the chuck wagon’s rattle
And hope the wide western skies will be fair

Once again we’ll shake hands just as in years gone by
We’re cowboys but we’ll play like boys, not men
Time for old friendships and new fortunes has drawn nigh
Let’s smile while we drive the cattle again

Hats off cowboys to the dreams of old times gleaming
Yip yip hooray for this last cattle call
When it’s over to the barn dance we’ll be streaming
Our boots will dance at the Cattleman’s Ball 

(Instrumental)

The old prairie was wide where the new cattle grazed
It was scary where the antelope grew
We strapped on a pistol but rarely was it raised
Even in stampedes that we cowboys knew

Once again we’ll follow the path to Dodge City
The old Chisholm’s a long and dusty trail
We’ll recall when all saloon girls were so pretty
And the big trail boss bailed us out of jail

Hats off cowboys to the dreams of old times gleaming
Yip yip hooray for this last cattle call
When it’s over to the barn dance we’ll be streaming
Our boots will dance at the Cattleman’s Ball 
Vagabond Breeze (Larry W Jones 8/28/2018) (song #7305)

The vagabond breeze leaves no guarantees
It only pleas to let it roll yonder
Her highway man was raised in small degrees
As many men to the vagabond breeze

In a small abode where the semis rolled
Only big trucks would his daydreams appease
The whining sound of a diesel outbound
Found him at ease with the vagabond breeze

The vagabond breeze leaves no guarantees
It only pleas to let it roll yonder
Her highway man was raised in small degrees
As many men to the vagabond breeze

(Instrumental)

Well, she married him on a fast rebound
He said his trucking days were done and through
But he struck out new when he looked around
Now she’s home alone with a heart that’s blue

The vagabond breeze leaves no guarantees
It only pleas to let it roll yonder
Her highway man was raised in small degrees
As many men to the vagabond breeze

Her highway man was raised in small degrees
As many men to the vagabond breeze
The Auction (Larry W Jones 8/29/2018) (song #7306)

A black and white notice he posted on the driveway gate
The old man looked very polite and then he drove away
I ran down the long path to see what it was all about
Daddy and Mama wanted to see what it had to say

They read the notice and I saw their tears
Mortgage and foreclosure was due today
Forty years of ranching was many years
And it all came down to the day to pay

Daddy drove to town and there posted on the feed lot store
Was the same black and white notice from the county court house
A public auction was to be held and the bidding was for
An old ranch house and all of the belongings thereabouts

Forty years of ranching, working and toil
Forty years somehow ended up this way
I saw my Daddy’s blood begin to boil
Mama cried but she had nothing to say

The auction went all day long with the loud auctioneer’s song
Every number that he called was an arrow through the heart
The cattle, horses and all to someone else would belong
Daddy and my Mama stood there and watched it all depart

Forty years of ranching, working and toil
Forty years somehow ended up this way
I saw my Daddy’s blood begin to boil
Mama cried but she had nothing to say

The auction went all day long with the loud auctioneer’s song
The auction went all day but it took forty years to pay
Conestoga (Larry W Jones 9/01/2018) (song #7308)

Conestoga, conestoga, conestoga wagon
Keep on a-rollin’ conestoga
Roll on, roll on conestoga, to Saratoga
Roll on over the trail, conestoga

Walk on mule team, there’s another load of settlers
Waitin’ in Missouri
Keep on a-rollin’ conestoga
They came from Ticonderoga

(Instrumental)

Conestoga, conestoga, conestoga wagon
Keep on a-rollin’ conestoga
Roll on, roll on conestoga, to Saratoga
Roll on over the trail, conestoga

Walk on mule team, there’s another load of settlers
Waitin’ in Missouri
Conestoga, conestoga, conestoga wagon
Roll on but don’t get in a hurry conestoga
You Touched My Heart With Love In Your Eyes (Larry W Jones 9/03/2018) (song #7309)

I once though sorrow was what came to be
As just a sad part of reality
That a dream lives to blossom and then dies
Til you touched my heart with love in your eyes

Oh, you touched my heart with love in your eyes
When I thought love was a trick in disguise
You decided to pick a big surprise
When you touched my heart with love in your eyes

(Instrumental)

Darling, now that I’m yours and you are mine
No sorrow will be ours for all of time
Happiness now and tomorrow blue skies
Cause you touched my heart with love in your eyes

Oh, you touched my heart with love in your eyes
When I thought love was a trick in disguise
You decided to pick a big surprise
When you touched my heart with love in your eyes

Happiness now and tomorrow blue skies
Cause you touched my heart with love in your eyes
Curtain Call Downpour (Larry W Jones 9/07/2018) (song #7310)

Well, the sun it used to shine every day
From the first time I saw you at the candy store
But that was then before you went away
Now the rain falls down in a curtain call downpour

Your first showing was like on center stage
And you read your lines as from a musical score
You sang of love like a bird in a cage
Now the rain falls down in a curtain call downpour

(Instrumental)

Well, the sun it used to shine every day
From the first time I saw you at the candy store
But that was then before you went away
Now the rain falls down in a curtain call downpour

The tickets for a lover’s balcony
I paid the price for the one girl whom I adored
But the show ended in a tragedy
And the rain falls down in a curtain call downpour

I paid the price for the one girl whom I adored
Now the rain falls down in a curtain call downpour
Shady Grove (Larry W Jones 9/08/2018) (song #7311)

Shady Grove, my woodland flower
Shady Grove, girl you must be brave
Shady Grove, how near comes the hour
I am bound for the ocean waves

Hair as red as a storm sundown
Oh, how I dread that we must part
But in the morn I’m ocean bound
Shady Grove, pledge to me your heart

Repeat #1

Oh how I wish for a fine steed
An equine at her woodland home
And Shady Grove at times to feed
While I’m away across the foam

Repeat #1

I went to visit Shady Grove
A woodland flower at her door
Now she’s a sailor’s treasure trove
A gem this sailor’s heart adores

Repeat #1

When I was just a cabin boy
I sailed on the fine Falls of Clyde 
How fine t’wood be and filled with joy
To have Shady Grove be my bride

Repeat #1

The hand of Shady Grove I’ll hold
When I return from o’er the brine
With hair so red and heart of gold
I’ll ask Shady Grove to be mine

Repeat #1
Quiet Dreamer (Larry W Jones 9/08/2018) (song #7312)

So quiet is this world of night dreamers
So quiet that day time is no healer

Yes you could call me the quiet dreamer
For I dream that in love I’m doing fine
I dream of things that only true love brings
But my love dreams lie quiet all the time

Yes you could call me the quiet dreamer
For I dream in a world hushed and alone
I once believed that I wasn’t deceived
But now my love dreams are fading at dawn

(Instrumental)

So quiet is this world of night dreamers
So quiet that day time is no healer

Yes you could call me the quiet dreamer
Even when I’m awake and skies are clear
I quietly dream but it’s a mind scheme
That you will return and bring lasting cheer

Yes you could call me the quiet dreamer
For I dream in a world hushed and alone
I once believed that I wasn’t deceived
But now my love dreams are fading at dawn

Each night dear, I quietly dream of you
Continental Divide (Larry W Jones 9/09/2018) (song #7313)

Now, if your new vacation time is mighty nigh
Just take my advice highly and I’ll be your guide
Drive your old wheels up a high road that meets the sky
Get your monumental ride o’re the Continental Divide

It separates the Atlantic from Pacific
And to be specific, it goes from South to North
Or for what it’s worth it divides the North South earth
Get your monumental ride o’re the Continental Divide

(Instrumental)

Now, you could start your drive in Patagonia
Or maybe the Cape Prince of Wales in Alaska
If I were to ask ya to cross Colorado
Trail Ridge Road and Milner Pass is a route I know
Get your monumental ride o’re the Continental Divide

It separates the Atlantic from Pacific
And to be specific, it goes from South to North
Or for what it’s worth it divides the North South earth
Get your monumental ride o’re the Continental Divide

Over the Continental Divide
Over the Continental Divide
Over the Continental Divide
Get your monumental ride o’re the Continental Divide 
What Can I Say (Larry W Jones 9/10/2018) (song #7314)

What can I say about how I love you
When the alphabet has only twenty six letters
What can I say about how I love you
When I’m so beset it’s only your love that matters

Do I have to spell it out
As to what love’s all about
Must I whisper it or shout
What can words say about you

The alphabet with letters
Make up words that don’t matter
What can words say about you
If only my heart you knew

(Instrumental)

What can I say about how I love you
When all the world’s best poets have run out of love rhymes
What can I say about how I love you
When every day you know it’s you I want to be mine

Do I have to spell it out
As to what love’s all about
Must I whisper it or shout
What can words say about you

The alphabet with letters
Make up words that don’t matter
What can words say about you
If only my heart you knew
Run Horses Run (Larry W Jones 9/10/2018) (song #7315)

I follow horses as horses follow their trail
Run horses run, horses run
I follow horses, run horses run, horses run
Run horses run, horses run

I follow their trail all day long
O’re hill and dale with cowboy songs
Run horses run, I’ll tag along
I follow horses, run horses run, horses run

(Instrumental)

Now, a cowboy needs horses to follow their trail
Run horses run, horses run
Pleasure and joy will follow in western song tales
Run horses run, horses run

I follow their trail all day long
O’re hill and dale with cowboy songs
Run horses run, I’ll tag along
I follow horses, run horses run, horses run

I follow their trail all day long
O’re hill and dale with cowboy songs
Run horses run, I’ll tag along
I follow horses, run horses run, horses run
In These Cowboy Boots (Larry W Jones 9/11/2018) (song #7316)

I never was the kind to really give a hoot
But girl, you changed my mind about my country roots
Your talk and your sweet smile show something really cute
Don’t think I’m talking funny because I’m country
I can walk a country mile in these cowboy boots

I can walk a country mile in these cowboy boots
Been in them for awhile since the day I was born
In these cowboy boots I won’t tell to you some yarn
I’ll tell you that I love you in these cowboy boots

(Instrumental)

I hope you don’t think that I’m just some tall galoot
I’m on the brink of feeling love is now acute
I’d like to waltz you right across big Texas too
I can walk a country mile in these cowboy boots

I can walk a country mile in these cowboy boots
Been in them for awhile since the day I was born
In these cowboy boots I won’t tell to you some yarn
I’ll tell you that I love you in these cowboy boots

I’ll tell you that I love you in these cowboy boots
Harmony Fiddles (Larry W Jones 9/11/2018) (song #7317)

Two harmony fiddles in a western swing song
Harmony fiddles made me want to sing along
We danced that night around the floor and the middle 
To Bob Wills western swing with harmony fiddles

Now harmony fiddles remind me I’m alone
There’s no harmony in western swing since she’s gone
Why she left is still to me a stingin’ riddle
But I still like Bob Wills twin harmony fiddles

(Instrumental)

For awhile we danced together in harmony
It’s a riddle how romance came to dormancy
Two step was neat and how I miss that shuffle beat
Harmony fiddles almost made my world complete

Now harmony fiddles remind me I’m alone
There’s no harmony in western swing since she’s gone
Why she left is still to me a stingin’ riddle
But I still like Bob Wills twin harmony fiddles

She’s gone and the reason why is still a riddle
But I still like Bob Wills twin harmony fiddles
Don’t Cry And Say Goodbye (Larry W Jones 9/12/2018) (song #7318)

Give me a kiss I can’t resist
And don’t you do it on the fly
But if you do you’ll still be missed
Darling, don’t cry and say goodbye

Hold me real close, see how it goes
Cause don’t you know that arms don’t lie
Your charms are more than fancy clothes
Darling, don’t cry and say goodbye

(Instrumental)

And for a date please don’t be late
I’m blue when time goes slipping by
If you love me then tell me straight
Darling, don’t cry and say goodbye

Dear, don’t play my heart like a pawn
Try to see my love eye to eye
It would be wrong to see you gone
Darling, don’t cry and say goodbye

It would be wrong to see you gone
Darling, don’t cry and say goodbye
I See That You See (Larry W Jones 9/12/2018) (song #7319)

Sweetheart, I see that you see
Just how much you mean to me
What I saw filled me with awe
My happy heart skipped a beat

Sweetheart, I see that you see
I’m sure that you will agree
We’ll go ask your Ma and Pa
Set that date for you and me

(Instrumental)

Sweetheart, I see that you see
I’m sure that you will agree
We’ll go ask your Ma and Pa
Set that date for you and me

Sweetheart, I see that you see
It’s now time to say goodnight
Before we part pledge your heart
I see that you see it’s right

Sweetheart, I see that you see
I see that you see it’s right 
My Wild Mountain Rose (Larry W Jones 9/12/2018) (song #7320)

Come along night songs and dreams
Western skies draw to a close
Flow down softly valley streams
Sleep on, my wild mountain rose

Hill and dale, the light grows pale
Listen to cows as they low
The moon will rise without fail
Shine on my wild mountain rose

Ponderosa limbs and boughs
You know when the wild wind blows
Please be mild upon her brow
Sleep on, my wild mountain rose

Come along night songs and dreams
My wild mountain rose at rest
Flow down softly valley streams
To rivers wild in the west

Now hear the mockingbird sing
Welcome to sunshine’s warm glows
Love and laughter to me bring
Awake, my wild mountain rose
If I Lost You On The Trail (Larry W Jones 9/12/2018) (song #7321)

If I lost you on the trail
The man in the moon would sigh
If I lost you on the trail
Starlight would flicker and die

All whippoorwills at twilight
Would call with their sad refrain
Nighthawks would see and take flight
To shield you from any rain

(Instrumental)

If I lost you on the trail
The man in the moon would sigh
If I lost you on the trail
Starlight would flicker and die

But when you ride beside me
No cold winter winds would blow
With you as my bride to be
True love will abide and grow

Much too high would be the cost
If I lost you on the trail
Fancy Cattle Drive (Larry W Jones 9/12/2018) (song #7322)

I want to take you on a fancy cattle drive
A fancy cattle drive where dreams of fancy thrive
This old trail will lead you to the west’s biggest hall
Where the cows all stampede to for their yearly ball

They have an ensemble a-way out on the trail
And that’s where they assemble each year without fail
Now let them sing for us what resembles a song
On this cattle drive as you and I string along

(Instrumental)

On this fancy cattle drive, heifers are lowing
The big bulls have derived lariats for throwing
And they round up the heifers with unerring throws
For dancing in leather where the prairie stream flows

With stars up there shining, sweet dreams I’m designing
Because down here I’ve been pining from nine to five
To ask for your hand although it’s chancy but planned 
While I take you on a long fancy cattle drive

(Instrumental)

The fancy cattle drive is over but was neat
Big bulls and young heifers kiss goodbye long and sweet
Ensembles of birds in the trees fly on the breeze
Next year at the ramble they’ll invite all the bees

Now the bulls and heifers as well as birds and bees  
Are taking measures for next year’s pleasures like these
And so my darling, would you be willing to strive
To ride forever on a fancy cattle drive

They have an ensemble a-way out on the trail
And that’s where they assemble each year without fail
Now let them sing for us what resembles a song
On this cattle drive as you and I string along
Blanket Of Western Sky Stars (Larry W Jones 9/12/2018) (song #7323)

I recall from time to time that night so sublime
The glorious heavens had around them no bars
It was in that session I had the impression
I wrapped you in a blanket of western sky stars

That was the hour when on us a shower
Of true love grew like a new born flower
I recall that I wrote in my memoires
You wore a blanket of western sky stars

(Instrumental)

My fingertips then slipped upon your ruby lips
And a million stars appeared in heavenly eyes
It was in that session I had the impression
I wrapped you in a blanket of western sky stars

That was the hour when on us a shower
Of true love grew like a new born flower
I recall that I wrote in my memoires
You wore a blanket of western sky stars

I recall that I wrote in my memoires
You wore a blanket of western sky stars
Rodeo Where Old Cowboys Go (Larry W Jones 9/13/2018) (song #7324)

It’s a small town rodeo where old cowboys go
Where old cowboy friends meet and tall Texas tales grow
That small town is in Texas where it’s called Conroe
I miss that old rodeo where old cowboys go

To most folks it’s just a town that is old
But to me the streets are laid down in gold
To me nothing beats the town I love so
Conroe, where cowboys go to rodeo

(Instrumental) 

Now, I’ve never been rich but I’ve lived what is poor
I would give my all for that town with no grandeur
For a small town rodeo where old cowboys go
Small town Conroe, where cowboys go to rodeo 

To most folks it’s just a town that is old
But to me the streets are laid down in gold
To me nothing beats the town I love so
Conroe, where cowboys go to rodeo

It’s a small town rodeo where old cowboys go
The Lonely Cowboy (Larry W Jones 9/13/2018) (song #7325)

Have you seen the lonely cowboy
Now, it seems he’s the only one
His face is never filled with joy
And laughter in his eyes is gone

Have you seen the lonely cowboy
You can hear it when his heart cries
He lost out on Helen of Troy
She deceived him with all her lies 

(Instrumental)

Have you seen the lonely cowboy
In the saloon he drowns his fears
He looks as rough as corduroy
Not tough enough to hide his tears

Have you seen the lonely cowboy
Some say he looks a lot like me
Have you seen the lonely cowboy
Then you have looked right straight at me

Have you seen the lonely cowboy
Then you have looked right straight at me
Sweet Maori Rose (Larry W Jones 9/13/2018) (song #7326)

I heard you weeping as soft tradewinds were sweeping
Came the feeling I was still on New Zealand’s shore
I know your heart’s burning for my early returning
I’m on my way so darling don’t weep anymore

Your voice is echoing o’re the silvery sea
Tradewinds are knowing a pleading song to compose
I’m on my way to southern New Zealand and Thee
And soon I will be with my sweet Maori rose

(Instrumental)

Until the tradewinds stop singing their dreamy song
Our love will be streaming in lines written in prose
I’m on my way and my darling I won’t be long
And soon I will be with my sweet Maori rose

Your voice is echoing o’re the silvery sea
Tradewinds are knowing a pleading song to compose
I’m on my way to southern New Zealand and Thee
And soon I will be with my sweet Maori rose

I’m on my way to southern New Zealand and Thee
And soon I will be with my sweet Maori rose
Bob Wills For Supper (Larry W Jones 9/19/2018) (song #7327)

I grew up in Conroe by the Gladstell sawmill
In the country that I remember so well still
My daddy brought home the bacon but not much dough
We heard Bob Wills on radio KMCO

Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day
His Texas Playboys had good western swing to play
Daddy loved their music, I recall those airwaves
Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day

(Instrumental)

We had a big Crosley powered by vacuum tubes
The red manual dial we tuned by an AM loop
Daddy had a guitar and tried to learn to play
Along with Bob Wills and his Playboys every day

Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day
His Texas Playboys had good western swing to play
Daddy loved their music, I recall those airwaves
Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day

Momma was a lady who has us boys to keep
She worked hard to provide a place to eat and sleep
My Daddy and my Momma lived simple country ways
Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day

Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day
His Texas Playboys had good western swing to play
Daddy loved their music, I recall those airwaves
Oh yes, we had Bob Wills for supper every day
Honey Monday (Larry W Jones 9/20/2018) (song #7328)

The day was a honey Monday
Saturday Sunday both had gone
A brand new Monday came along
And a love song began to play 

The day was a honey Monday
I thought Mondays were always blue
That was true until I met you
Now I don’t believe what they say

(Instrumental)

Most people live for the weekend
Not for the work week to begin
But that Monday made my head spin
When I saw you walking my way

The day was a honey Monday
Saturday Sunday was no more
The day was a honey Monday
Honey, each day I’ll love you more

The day was a honey Monday
And a love song began to play
On The Trail Of Dreams (Larry W Jones 9/20/2018) (song #7329)

True love lives on a trail
Somewhere o’re hill or dale
It’s on the trail of dreams
Yes, hearts can be broken
But healed by words spoken
When on the trail of dreams

A motherlode holds gold
Love holds riches untold
Down on the trail of dreams
Now, pockets may be full
But hearts of love have pull
When on the trail of dreams

(Instrumental)

True love lives on a trail
Somewhere o’re hill or dale
It’s on the trail of dreams
Yes, hearts can be broken
But healed by words spoken
When on the trail of dreams

A motherlode holds gold
Love holds riches untold
Down on the trail of dreams
Now, pockets may be full
But hearts of love have pull
When on the trail of dreams

True love lives on a trail
It’s on the trail of dreams
Screen To Hide The Scene (Larry W Jones 9/20/2018) (song #7330)

I need a screen to hide the scene
So mem’ries of her can’t be seen
Just four gray walls and long dark halls
To keep away light rays of day

Find me someplace where she can’t go
Behind some screen where I can’t show
What a fool that word to her means 
I need a screen to hide the scene

(Instrumental)

Cover the mirrors with their gleam
I need a screen to hide the scene
My reflection would surely show
A man whose life is filled with woe

Her face is nice with eyes of green
I paid the price for empty dreams
Her lies were spoken like a queen
I need a screen to hide the scene

Don’t want to see who came in between
I need a screen to hide the scene
Living With Someone Worth Dying For (Larry W Jones 9/20/2018) (song #7331)

Now, loneliness has quit coming round
Cause real happiness is what I’ve found
Good fortune smiled and then good times poured
Living with someone worth dying for

I used to hear a sad whippoorwill
But now he’s disappeared from his hill
And I’m no longer walking the floor
Living with someone worth dying for

(Instrumental)

I once had a weeping willow tree
But now, it no longer cries for me
My treasure is more than golden ore
Living with someone worth dying for

The love of my life is here today
And my lovely wife is here to stay
I couldn’t ask for anything more
Living with someone worth dying for

I couldn’t ask for anything more
Living with someone worth dying for
Flop Eared Donkey Honky Tonk (Larry W Jones 9/20/2018) (song #)

Tonight she’s dining with him in an uptown restaurant
While I’m whiskey bound til I’ve drowned the blues that came to haunt
I know she found the right man to fulfill her every want
I’m buying the rounds in a flop eared donkey honky tonk

I fed that corner jukebox til my quarters were all gone
All the songs were all about mourners til the break of dawn
Guess I did not endear myself with my hillbilly talk
I’m buying the rounds in a flop eared donkey honky tonk

(Instrumental)

A flop eared donkey honky tonk is not the place we met
Just where that was my soggy mem’ry can’t remember yet 
But I recall when my head felt her second skillet bonk
I’m buying the rounds in a flop eared donkey honky tonk

I fed that corner jukebox til my quarters were all gone
All the songs were all about mourners til the break of dawn
Guess I did not endear myself with my hillbilly talk
I’m buying the rounds in a flop eared donkey honky tonk

Yes, I recall when my head felt her second skillet bonk
I’m buying the rounds in a flop eared donkey honky tonk
Before I Saw Texas (Larry W Jones 9/21/2018) (song #7333)

I thought I had seen pretty places on earth 
But that was before I saw Texas
Never saw somewhere to stay since my child birth
But that was before I saw Texas

I travelled the world looking to settle down
But most places I found were reckless
I almost gave up and was wearing a frown
But that was before I saw Texas

(Instrumental)

I was a rambler and at times a scrambler
But that was before I saw Texas
Never saw a place charmingly infectious
But that was before I saw Texas

I travelled the world looking to settle down
But most places I found were reckless
I almost gave up and was wearing a frown
But that was before I saw Texas

Now I’m happy and I’ve settled down
In a town after I saw Texas
I Say To Myself (Larry W Jones 9/21/2018) (song #7334)

When I see you I say to myself
Don’t be a fool and try to be cool
I wouldn’t dare so I just act deaf
Yes I love you I say to myself

When I see you my head’s in a cloud
For you are much more than I could want
I wouldn’t dare to say it out loud
Don’t be a square I say to myself

(Instrumental)

When I see you I say to myself
There is no chance so don’t even start
So I put my heart back on the shelf
Just cut it short I say to myself

When I see you I say to myself
Oh, there is no chance for a romance
And don’t let her know how you have felt
Yes I love you I say to myself

And don’t let her know how you have felt
Yes I love you I say to myself
Another Ending Summer (Larry W Jones 9/21/2018) (song #7335)

The last day of Summer has walked the land
And the leaves of Summer are turning brown
Memories of Summer are warm and tanned
The last dance of Summer is shuttered down

A small town country lane now is lonely
Autumn frosted window panes look like pearls 
The first day of Summer held you only
As warm Summer love of a boy and girl

(Instrumental)

A small town country lane now is lonely
Autumn frosted window panes look like pearls 
The first day of Summer held you only
As warm Summer love of a boy and girl

I never dreamed that Summer days would end
Or that Summer days of love were numbered
Sweetheart I long for your return and then
We won’t see another ending Summer

Sweetheart I long for your return and then
We won’t see another ending Summer
