One Hundred Love Songs (Larry W. Jones 07/19/2008) (song#5601)

Thank her for everything she does
And send her flowers just because
If it's sweet songs of love she plays
Then play her love songs every day
Hold her close to you day and night
Let her know that your love is strong
If she needs comfort, do it right
Sing to her one hundred love songs

Just keep in mind that there could be
Love affairs in her memory
Don't bring them to mind anymore
Just let her know your love will pour
And if she ever needs your time
Just be right there where you belong
Then everything will work out fine
Sing to her one hundred love songs

- instrumental -

Don't be cool when she needs love warm
Don't be a fool and take the chance
The rule is to hold out your arms
It lights the fuel of her romance

Surrender to her if you care
Bring her the moon and stars to wear
Give her more than just what she wants
Spend time in moonlight in Vermont
She's in your home, so let her know
You will love her your whole life long
And one thing you can do real slow
Sing to her one hundred love songs
Sing to her one hundred songs of love
    
Last Cowboy Waltz (Larry W. Jones 07/20/2008) (song#5602)

The barn dance was over, the band played their last piece
Played the last cowboy waltz for my darlin' and me
Oh, how this cowboy's heart wished the night might not end
But she belonged to another, I was only her friend

I love you, how I love you, my lonely heart cried
But soon she would become another cowboy's bride
Next Sunday at the ranch house was her weddin' day
And I wished her the best, for what more could I say
That barn dance will be cherished in this cowboy's memory
When they played the last cowboy waltz for my darlin' and me
The last cowboy waltz for my darlin' and me

- instrumental -

Oh, how this cowboy's heart wished the night might not end
But she belonged to another, I was only her friend

I love you, how I love you, my lonely heart cried
But soon she would become another cowboy's bride
Next Sunday at the ranch house was her weddin' day
And I wished her the best, for what more could I say
That barn dance will be cherished in this cowboy's memory
When they played the last cowboy waltz for my darlin' and me
The last cowboy waltz for my darlin' and me
      
Tell Me Again You Love Me (Larry W. Jones 07/20/2008) (song#5603)

Darling, tell me again you love me one more time
Let me hold your hand and walk along beside you
Do you remember when you said that you'd be mine
Let me kiss your lips for one last time, then darling
Tell me again you love me one more time

Just for this moment, think about our yesterday
And drink in the mem'ry of feeling that same way
Do you love someone new, or could you still be mine
Darling, tell me again you love me one more time

- instrumental -

When the lights are turned down low, do you recall too
All that we used to do since we first said hello
Do you remember when our love was warm and new
Before cold winds of loneliness began to blow

Just for this moment, think about our yesterday
And drink in the mem'ry of feeling that same way
Darling, tell me again you love me one more time
Tell me again you love me one more time
      
A Long Long Time Ain't Long Enough (Larry W. Jones 07/20/2008) (song#5604)

A long long time ain't long enough to sing love songs to you
Love songs that say how much I care 'bout being fair and true
A long long time ain't long enough, the chorus wouldn't start
To tell you only half the words of love down in my heart

A thousand years would come and go before I'd find the time
To sing you love songs that show how glad I am that you're mine
I've thought about the time I've had and I have thought it through
A long long time ain't long enough to sing love songs to you

- instrumental -

A thousand years would come and go, maybe a thousand more
To write lines that say you're mine, the only one I adore
So, I'll start today and I'll keep on as time rolls along
A long long time ain't long enough to sing love songs to you


A long long time ain't long enough to sing love songs to you
Love songs that say how much I care 'bout being fair and true
A long long time ain't long enough, the chorus wouldn't start
To tell you only half the words of love down in my heart

A long long time ain't long enough to sing love songs to you
      
Sharp Spurs And Saddles And Colt Forty-Fives (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2008) (song#5605)

Sharp spurs and saddles and Colt forty-fives
Were things that kept all those outlaws alive
They grew on a man like lillies in sand
Lillies in sand grew for when outlaws died
Outlaws were gunslingers, quick on the draw
Hot trigger fingers outside of the law
Lillies in sand grew alongside their trails
When their songs ended, the lillies did wail
Carpets of flowers 'long trails lined with lead
Grew there in sand for when outlaws were dead

Outlaws rode lonely, no true saddle pals
Lillies in sand grew by their lonely miles
Townfolks all feared them, they all ran to hide
Few would come near them for fear they would die
Outlaws made names and some still live in fame
Lillies in sand knew all outlaws who came
Lillies in sand grew alongside their trails
When their songs ended, the lillies did wail
Carpets of flowers 'long trails lined with lead
Grew in the sand for when outlaws were dead

Some women loved outlaws, needn't ask why
They picked lillies in sand growing near by
Soon, like the lillies, they bowed down their heads
Lawmen got them, not alive but quite dead
Some of those outlaws lie still on Boot Hill
I reckon those outlaws there always will
Sharp spurs and saddles and Colt forty-fives
Were things that kept all those outlaws alive
They grew on a man like lillies in sand
Lillies in sand grew for when outlaws died

Sharp spurs and saddles and Colt forty-fives
Were things that kept all those outlaws alive
      
Live Easy Love Slowly Die Old (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2008) (song#5606)

I wanna live easy, love slowly
Die old with your memory
Dear, we'll do some slow dancin', low singin'
Until we're ninety three
Cause I wanna have only
One happy woman remember me
I wanna live easy, love slowly
Die old with your memory

I want your favor in the things I do
So I can savor years of loving you
And then when the time comes to lay me low
You'll have good memories of me, I know

I wanna live easy, love slowly
Die old with your memory
We'll do slow strollin', easy rollin'
As years roll by fancy free
There's no hurry so there's no worry
Nothing blurry I can see
I wanna live easy, love slowly
Die old with your memory

- instrumental -

I want your favor in the things I do
So I can savor years of loving you
And then when the time comes to lay me low
You'll have good memories of me, I know

I wanna live easy, love slowly
Die old with your memory
We'll do slow strollin', easy rollin'
As years roll by fancy free
There's no hurry so there's no worry
Nothing blurry I can see
I wanna live easy, love slowly
Die old with your memory
      
Many Long Years Ago (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2008) (song#5607)

I used to hold you and kiss you
Many long years ago
Now, as by chance we meet
Each other we greet as old friends
I used to hold you and kiss you
Many long years ago

Now, doesn't it seem strange
To just say Hi to an old flame
Although it's a shame, no one's to blame
For the way love goes
I used to hold you and kiss you
Many long years ago

I'm glad we met again
And yet again it makes me blue
It's too late to start over
Though I'm still not over you

Recall yesterday of old
When away you turned and strolled
I used to hold you and kiss you
Many long years ago

- instrumental -

I'm glad we met again
And yet again it makes me blue
It's too late to start over
Though I'm still not over you

Recall yesterday of old
When away you turned and strolled
I used to hold you and kiss you
Many long years ago

I used to hold you and kiss you
Many long years ago
      
We Just Missed Some Turns (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2008) (song#5608)

Love can be a lonely road when love goes astray
Emptiness is a heavy load when tears get in the way
But darling, in these arms of mine I know you'll find
Real love that we've both been burning for, as you hear me say
On love's road, we just missed some turns along the way

Your old love was good at telling you his sweet lies
But you found out he was only selling you alibis
That kind of love always leaves when it's time to pay
Cause he thinks only of himself and only of today
On love's road, we just missed some turns along the way

Lay your head on my shoulder, go ahead and cry
Both of us are now older but real love will get us by
Darling, one thing that we've learned
Is love we've earned since we met
Don't live with regrets, we must forget yesterday
On love's road, we just missed some turns along the way

- instrumental -

Your old love was good at telling you his sweet lies
But you found out he was only selling you alibis

Lay your head on my shoulder, go ahead and cry
Both of us are now older but real love will get us by
Darling, one thing that we've learned
Is love we've earned since we met
Don't live with regrets, we must forget yesterday
On love's road, we just missed some turns along the way
We just missed some turns along the way
      
Love Has Finally Come To Stay (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2008) (song#5609)

The thrill of your charms started love so warm
Now I must implore you for even more
I can't help but stare when I see you there
Who else could cause sweet music in the air
And in my arms when I hold you this way
I know love has finally come to stay

Dear, each time we meet, my heart skips a beat
You make my life so complete every day
Darling, I soon began to realize
Soon as I looked into your sparkling eyes
That I knew you would never go away
I know love has finally come to stay

- instrumental -

Darling, I soon began to realize
Soon as I looked into your sparkling eyes
That I knew you would never go away
I know love has finally come to stay

The thrill of your charms started love so warm
Now I must implore you for even more
What manner of good fortune could this be
Or planner of sweet dreams that I can't see
Now I can believe in dreams, come what may
I know love has finally come to stay
Love has finally come to stay
      
Love Letters Composed With My Heart (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2008) (song#5610)

Love letters composed with my heart
Are better than nothing while we're apart
Daylight grows dim as the last page I write
But these letters brim with love that burns bright

Darling, I proof read each and every line
And dear, I plead that you'll stay only mine
Then before each letter goes in the mail
I go over each page in great detail
So that each shows right from the start
Love letters composed with my heart

- instrumental -

Love letters composed with my heart
Are better than nothing while we're apart

Darling, I proof read each and every line
And dear, I plead that you'll stay only mine
Then before each letter goes in the mail
I go over each page in great detail
So that each shows right from the start
Love letters composed with my heart

Then before each letter goes in the mail
I go over each page in great detail
So that each shows right from the start
Love letters composed with my heart
      
You're Gonna Leave (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2008) (song#5611)

You're gonna leave, cause you never loved me
You're gonna leave even though I'll be blue
Dear, I once believed that my heart owned you
You're gonna leave, and what else can I do

I held you close when you were here with me
Now everyone knows you're no longer mine
You're gonna leave and I'll live my lifetime
Missing you, cause you're gonna leave

- instrumental -

Dear, I once believed that my heart owned you
You're gonna leave, and what else can I do

I held you close when you were here with me
Now everyone knows you're no longer mine
You're gonna leave and I'll live my lifetime
Missing you, cause you're gonna leave

I'll live my lifetime
Missing you, cause you're gonna leave
      
Perhaps She Just Needed Time (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2008) (song#5612)

I was standing by the barn
A large rimmed hat upon my head
The rain was coming down
As my mind filled up with words she said
This farm used to produce in summer
But now it's a disgrace
No harm in remembering
Cause some thoughts time just can't erase

Perhaps she just needed time for thinkin'
Perhaps something burned in her to be free
Now perhaps, if I can stop this drinkin'
I'll find perhaps, that she'll return to me

- instrumental -

Now, this ain't like a normal farm
Thoughts keep growin' in my brain
I thought that time would heal
But the rain keeps pourin' down again
Each time I stand in this space
Beside the barn, I'm out of place
The rain comes pourin' down
But I can still clearly see her face

Perhaps she just needed time for thinkin'
Perhaps something burned in her to be free
Now perhaps, if I can stop this drinkin'
I'll find perhaps, that she'll return to me
      
Mexican Rose (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5613)

South of the border, everybody knows
A pretty senorita called Mexican Rose
Never in a hurry, has no worry
Everybody falls in love with Mexican Rose

In old Mexico, she's the Folklorico Queen
She's got all the hombres wrapped up tight in her string
Mexican Rose gives those hombres a hundred chills
When they pay for drinks with a hundred peso bills
For romancin' and dancin', everybody knows
She's always on her toes, pretty Mexican Rose

- instrumental -

She makes all the night spots in Acapulco Bay
The touristias come to see her from far away
She is so much fun everywhere she ever goes
Folks yell Viva la bonita Mexican Rose
She never gambles cause she has no poker face
She laughs so much that she's the queen of every ace
But when it comes to winnin', the deck is stacked
And when it comes to Rose, well, she is too, in fact
For romancin' and dancin', everybody knows
She's always on her toes, pretty Mexican Rose

- instrumental -

Now, Rose don't pay no taxes, Rose don't pay no dues
She's always relaxed, but just how, we got no clues
She's got the world by the tail, a guy and a song
The rest of us would go to jail, we'd all be wrong
Her popular pastime is dancin' with the guys
If it's past nine, she romances them with her eyes
She's not after money, she don't need much peso
When she wants honey, she says besame mucho
For romancin' and dancin', everybody knows
She's always on her toes, pretty Mexican Rose
      
A Moment In Time (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5614)

Yesterday I met an old friend I had known
For a moment in time I felt I was home
For just a moment, I didn't feel alone
But a moment in time comes and then is gone

Last night I went to a bar room I once knew
For just a moment, I had forgotten you
For a moment, I didn't cry at our song
But a moment in time comes and then is gone

Every so often I forget, then I smile
Like those moments in time I heard in a song
Those moments in time that come and then are gone

- instrumental -

Every so often I forget, then I smile
Like those moments in time I heard in a song
Those moments in time that come and then are gone

Tonight I'm going out for new tunes and songs
But without a doubt, I'll come back home alone
For a moment in time, forget you were mine
But a moment in time comes and then is gone
Oh, a moment in time comes and then is gone
      
Down In This Valley Of Love (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5615)

I'm crying in this valley as I view the little village
My heart feels as if it's undergone pillage
My teardrops are going down the valley wide
Like a river flowing from the mountain high
I remember happiness when you and I were so in love
Down in this valley of love

Day after day I come here and groan
Night after night I'm still here alone
Darlin', I'm so lonely
Won't you come and heal these lonesome blues
Don't you know I love you only
I'd do anything for you
You know where to find me, it's not up above
Down in this valley of love

- instrumental -

This valley of love, oh, this valley of love
It's here that you once were my heart's flame
But now you're long gone from this valley of love
Folks even say that you've changed your name

From here below I see the village people
They are all aglow underneath a steeple
I see a happy couple decked in roses
As the door to my own happiness closes
I remember happiness when you and I were so in love
Down in this valley of love
Down in this valley of love
Down in this valley of love
      
My Sweetheart My Sweetheart (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5616)

My sweetheart, my sweetheart
I'll call you my sweetheart forever and a day
My sweetheart, my sweetheart
To you alone, my love I will ever impart
Until time itself has melted away

Now, all at once you are near me
There's only one thing I can say
My sweetheart, my sweetheart
Darling, get used to these words from my heart
My sweetheart, never go away

My sweetheart, my sweetheart, my sweet darling

- fiddle -

My sweetheart, my sweetheart, my sweet darling

- fiddle -

Now, all at once you are near me
There's only one thing I can say
My sweetheart, my sweetheart
Darling, get used to these words from my heart
My sweetheart, never go away

My sweetheart, my sweetheart
Never go away
      
My Buddy On The Left (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5617)

Take a really close look at this old photograph
It's kinda faded but three people you can see
See the silly grin on the one in the middle
If you look again, you'll see that image is me

Now, see that lovely doll standing there to my right
You need to understand, she's the girl I held tight
Take a closer look, you'll see something isn't right
Cause she went away with my buddy on the left

For that little cottage, I worked hard, nine to five
Give regard to that new car I bought her to drive
I worked the night shift on a job that made me deaf
I lost her to my buddy standing on the left

- instrumental -

Now, see that lovely doll standing there to my right
You need to understand, she's the girl I held tight
Take a closer look, you'll see something isn't right
Cause she went away with my buddy on the left

I must have been blind, cause this photo doesn't lie
I know now that I was always the middle guy
I built up sweet dreams for what became a grand theft
When she went away with my buddy on the left
      
Cause Of The Distance From You (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5618) 

It's not the blue moon that despairs me, pains and scares me
No dear, it's just the distance from you
It's not the letters, though they do make me feel better
No dear, it's just the distance from you

When I held you in my arms, you felt so dear to me
But now all of my dreams have turned blue
The moon still shines soft and the twinkling stars are aloft
But without you, there's nothing to do
I'm blue, cause of the distance from you

- instrumental -

It's not the blue moon that despairs me, pains and scares me
No dear, it's just the distance from you

When I held you in my arms, you felt so dear to me
But now all of my dreams have turned blue
The moon still shines soft and the twinkling stars are aloft
But without you, there's nothing to do
I'm blue, cause of the distance from you
Cause of the distance from you
      
Your Letter (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5619)

The postman finally came past this afternoon
I have been waiting since before the last blue moon
Your letter finally came, what took you so long
Dear, I had begun to think that something was wrong

Dear, I'm so glad you're giving me another chance
You were my very first love, my love at first glance
I had hoped you would be returning back to stay
I'm so glad the postman brought your letter today

Darling, I promise you, I'll make things up to you
Oh, it might take awhile for new dreams to come true
There are no fetters to hold back the words I say
I'm so glad the postman brought your letter today

- instrumental -

Dear, I'm so glad you're giving me another chance
You were my very first love, my love at first glance

Darling, I promise you, I'll make things up to you
Oh, it might take awhile for new dreams to come true
There are no fetters to hold back the words I say
I'm so glad the postman brought your letter today
      
No Humane Way (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5620)

The time has arrived for our love's ending
Tears haven't dried that were locked up inside
There's nothing gained for love with no mending
There's just no humane way for two humans to say goodbye

Now, don't look so sad, words cannot hurt me
Unless they're so mad that my heart might die
There's no use to explain why you're leaving
There's just no humane way for two humans to say goodbye

I know you could have waited until tomorrow
I guess all our happy yesterdays don't apply
So, we'll loosen the chains in spite of the sorrow
Now, what remains for us is to just say goodbye

- instrumental -

I know you could have waited until tomorrow
I guess all our happy yesterdays don't apply
So, we'll loosen the chains in spite of the sorrow
Now, what remains for us is to just say goodbye

Now, don't look so sad, words cannot hurt me
Unless they're so mad that my heart might die
There's no use to explain why you're leaving
There's just no humane way for two humans to say goodbye

There's just no humane way
There's just no humane way
      
Core Of My Concern (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5621)

The core of my concern can make my heart so yearn
Whenever she places her hand in mine
There have been other girls who gave my heart a whirl
But when it comes to my heart's happiness
The core of my concern is so divine

Oh, I never worry when she is out of sight
For she would never be unfair to me
The core of my concern brings my heart such delight
She will forever be my destiny

She goes wherever she wants, whether day or night
And she knows that I never have a care
The core of my concern makes my future look bright
I know her sweet love will always be there

- instrumental -

Oh, I never worry when she is out of sight
For she would never be unfair to me
The core of my concern brings my heart such delight
She will forever be my destiny

The core of my concern can make my heart so yearn
Whenever she places her hand in mine
There have been other girls who gave my heart a whirl
But when it comes to my heart's happiness
The core of my concern is so divine

The core of my concern will soon be mine
      
In My Night Dreams (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5622)

When I'm done working, I go straight on home
I can't wait for night time to go to bed
In my night dreams I am never alone
I listen for the sweet things she once said
As I hold her in my arms once again
She is still my queen and I'm still a king
So, I'll go to sleep just to ease the pain
In my night dreams

Regardless of the weather, rain or storm
In starless nights she comes back to my arms
From twilight til five, I'm asleep supreme
I just make up my mind to spend old times
In my night dreams

I never have to count those jumping sheep
Even though I know that she's still long gone
She comes back and she's still mine in my sleep
And it helps me day and night to carry on
Who cares 'bout reality and such things
When I know she will show up now and then
In my night dreams

- instrumental -

As I hold her in my arms once again
She is still my queen and I'm still a king
So, I'll go to sleep just to ease the pain
In my night dreams

I never have to count those jumping sheep
Even though I know that she's still long gone
She comes back and she's still mine in my sleep
And it helps me day and night to carry on
Who cares 'bout reality and such things
When I know she will show up now and then
In my night dreams
      
Another One Of My Bad Days (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2008) (song#5623)

If I forget to smile, pay it no mind
Now, don't think that maybe something's not right
Oh, now there are some things that you might find
That bring dark clouds to hide the sun from sight
I'll be happier tomorrow without this haze
I'm just having another one of my bad days

I'm sure you've had a bad day now and then
I have had some bad ones, and it's so sad
Another bad one is back here again

My darling doesn't know that I still love her so
And I miss her more when these bad days come along
I don't think she knew how much she would make me blue
It's another one of my bad days all day long

- instrumental -

Now, don't think that maybe something's not right
Oh, now there are some things that you might find

I'll be happier tomorrow without this haze

My darling doesn't know that I still love her so
And I miss her more when these bad days come along
I don't think she knew how much she would make me blue
It's another one of my bad days all day long
      
Overland Freight Stage Number Nine (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5624) 

Miss Molly sent a letter on the overland stage freight
In it, she asked the trail boss how long she would have to wait
She said, I'm sitting here alone, please send my cowboy home
The trail drive must be done, so please send home my son

When the trail boss read her letter, a tear fell from his eye
As he rested on his saddle, the trail boss then replied
Miss Molly, there's a new made box of pine
On the overland freight stage number nine
Bringing home a young cowboy of the fold
M'am, I know the valley will fill with tears
As overland stage number nine appears
Outside Denver the trails are getting cold

The young cowboy was taking his last ride
Down the stagecoach trail from the Great Divide
On no more big cattle drives would he roam
The young cowboy was on his last ride home

- instrumental -

Bringing home a young cowboy of the fold
M'am, I know the valley will fill with tears
As overland stage number nine appears

Keep On Winking Silv'ry Stars (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5625)

The stars were winking bright, the moon approached midnight
The clock was turning slowly to another day
The man in the moon saw his cue, asked why so blue
Said, I've seen many broken hearted men like you

I heard the trade winds whisper from across the sea
They said that silver sails were taking you from me
The trade winds said our love was drifting aimlessly
And now begins the tears that will flow endlessly

I told the man in the moon, this may be the end
What I thought was the queen of hearts was just a friend
But stars were winking bright, all the way out to Mars
To guide her back to me so two hearts could be saved
So, keep on winking, though I'm sinking, silv'ry stars

- instrumental -

I heard the trade winds whisper from across the sea
They said that silver sails were taking you from me
The trade winds said our love was drifting aimlessly
And now begins the tears that will flow endlessly

I told the trade winds, send a message 'cross the waves
If she would forgive, I would gladly be her slave
The moon told the stars to keep winking near and far
To guide her back to me so two hearts could be saved
So, keep on winking, though I'm sinking, silv'ry stars
      
Blue Rose Of The Brazos (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5626)

Blue rose of the Brazos, dear, can you hear me call
I remember the day you rode away last Fall
It was at the start of the early morning dawn
It was down along the Brazos we said our vows
Blue rose of the Brazos, my dear, where are you now
If I don't hear from you soon, I'll just travel on

Well now, something told me that your last kiss
Wasn't all that heaven thought it should be
Blue rose of the Brazos, you I still miss
Since the day you rode away to be free
Maybe manana, your love will be true
Blue rose of the Brazos, I still love you

- instrumental -

Impending Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5627)

Dear, I can tell when there's an impending goodbye
I can tell, a good farewell from you won't apply
But keep in mind that you're still mine before you start
And when you leave, you know I'll grieve down in my heart

I can see you're hesitating to see it through
Could it be you're waiting because you know it's true
On my part, I've been true right from the very start
And when you leave, you know I'll grieve down in my heart

Darling, what is it that I haven't done
Or did I do something not very smart
Dear, you know it's true, you're my only one
I will always love you with all my heart

- instrumental -

I will always love you with all my heart

P. S. I Still Love You (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5628)

Dear, I thought I would write a page or two
I guess I'm still alright without you here
But dear, it seems like it's been ages too
Since any dreams I've had weren't filled with tears
P.S. I still love you

All the folks we know here are doing well
But some of them still ask me about you
I'm in bed by the old nine o'clock bell
In my head, I dream the door knock is you
P.S. I still love you

Darling, I don't mean to write to complain
But you took that train and you left me blue
Again today, the weather looks like rain
Don't know whether I'll ever get over you
P.S. I still love you

- instrumental -

Dear, I saw the Browns the other evening
They all stopped by just for a friendly call
Seems they didn't know about your leaving
I said you were with Mom until this Fall
P.S. I love you most of all

Dear, I guess I'll close now and say goodbye
There's not much good to say about the news
If this last page is still damp, you'll know why
It's because I'm still crying over you
P.S. I still love you

If this last page is still damp, you'll know why
It's because I'm still crying over you
P.S. I still love you
      
Love Is A Stage Play (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5629)

Now, love is a stage play and I played a bit part
I never had big lines, though many times I tried
My stage play queen thought she was a silver screen star
But her best line was goodbye, mine was when I cried

Oh, you should have seen how I acted in scene two
I did a great job pretending I was surprised
Oh, if you could have been there, well, I'm telling you
No telling which one of us would have won the prize

When love's stage play was over, the curtain crashed down
My stage queen went stage-right and I got what was left
I begged for encores but she wasn't to be found
I put out the lights and put my heart on the shelf

- instrumental -

Oh, you should have seen how I acted in scene two
I did a great job pretending I was surprised
Oh, if you could have been there, well, I'm telling you
No telling which one of us would have won the prize

Now, love is a stage play and I played a bit part
I never had big lines, though many times I tried
Love is a stage play where I still cry
      
Mister Mailman (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5630)

(Mister mailman, do you think my postcard's alright)

Mister mailman, do you think my postcard's alright
I know you read folks postcards even in dim light
(even in dim light)
Don't want to make her blue, I need your point of view
Mister mailman (Mister mailman)
How can I tell her that we're through
(How can I tell her that we're through)

Mister mailman (Mister mailman)
Should I just write her to forget
(write her to forget)
Please help me tell her how to say that I regret
And when she gets my postcard, will she break and cry
(will she break and cry)
Mister mailman (Mister mailman)
Are postcards OK for goodbye

Are postcards OK for goodbye

Arizona Ranger (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5631)

In old Tuscon I took for granted love she gave
While never thinking of what tomorrow might bring
Oh, I knew it was dangerous but I was brave
Until someone rode in who meant her everything

An Arizona Ranger rode into our world
An Arizona Ranger, perfect in her eyes
Around her, this Ranger's fond attention then swirled
He was an Arizona Ranger in disguise

How dangerous for a stranger, who just met her
But I guess he understood her better than me
She rode away with him but I can't forget her
An Arizona Ranger loved her dangerously

- instrumental -

I doubt if I'll get another chance to have her
With this handsome stranger she rode away from me
He was a stranger, now my romance is over
An Arizona Ranger loved her dangerously

How dangerous for a stranger, who just met her
But I guess he understood her better than me
She rode away with him but I can't forget her
An Arizona Ranger loved her dangerously
      
Come Roundup Time (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2008) (song#5632)

Well, I got cattle on the prairie land
Little doggies growin' to beat the band
Now, my sweet Molly and them kids of mine
They gonna get new boots come roundup time
(Get new boots come roundup time)

After supper with the dishes complete
I thank sweet Molly that our kids still eat
Sometimes it's bones on which they all dine
But I get 'em all strong come roundup time
(Get 'em all strong come roundup time)

Now, the sun gets hot in the Texas sky
If you think it's not, then you ain't been by
The brandin' is hard in the summertime
Brandin' longhorn cattle come roundup time
(Longhorn cattle come roundup time)

Cowboys complain about the bunkhouse light
The same coal oil lamps burnin' every night
That coal oil ain't costin' cowboys a dime
They won't stay up so late come roundup time
(Won't stay up so late come roundup time)

Wagon wheels are rusty and all broke down
But my trusty pony I ride to town
I polish my spurs til the rowels shine
To ride herd on the cows come roundup time
(Ride herd on the cows come roundup time)

Parson came around and he passed his hat
Told the parson I just wanted to chat
As the parson left, said he didn't mind
Cause he was comin' back come roundup time
(Comin' back come roundup time)
      
Billy The Kid (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2008) (song#5633)

Billy the Kid was an outlaw
He roamed the wild and untamed west
Billy the Kid was an outlaw
Among gunslingers he was best
Known as Henry McCarty or William Bonney
All over the wild, untamed west his name would soar
The law had to rid the wild west of that Kid's lore
The notches on his guns were one and twenty more
One and twenty more

Billy the Kid was an outlaw
His hand was quick and leather tough
Billy the Kid was an outlaw
Until the west had had enough
Morton and Baker died near old Agua Negra
Billy the Kid gunned 'em down with his forty-four
The gunfight at Blazer's Mills killed Buckshot Roberts
Part of the New Mexico Lincoln County War
Lincoln County War

Billy the Kid was an outlaw
He roamed the wild and untamed west
Billy the Kid was an outlaw
One went to lay the Kid at rest
Pat Garrett was a lawman, Lincoln County sheriff
He swore to get Billy the Kid and lay him stiff
He shot 'em through the heart in eighteen eighty one
And the notches on Billy's guns were twenty one
One and twenty more
One and twenty more

Billy the Kid was not an outlaw anymore
      
When I Release You (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2008) (song#5634)

Darling, you want your release, I know
If I release you and let you go
Are you sure you'd never love me anymore
Dear, we have lived together since way back when
When I release you, don't come again

Now, you say you've found a new love, dear
And you say you'll always want him near
I know you have thought about this once before
Be sure that his kiss is warm and won't turn cold
When I release you and let you go

- instrumental -


If I release you and let you go
Are you sure you'd never love me anymore

And you say you'll always want him near

Be sure that his kiss is warm and won't turn cold
When I release you and let you go

Be sure that his kiss is warm and won't turn cold
When I release you and let you go
      
Poor Cowboy (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2008) (song#5635)

I once worked as lone hand at the OK
Look at a poor cowboy, look at a poor cowboy
I never drew a decent pay
I fed the longhorns hay at the OK
Feel for a poor cowboy, feel for a poor cowboy
Work didn't end at end of day

When she saw my sweat falling down
My new wife left for the big town
She said cowboy life was no win
And cowboy pay was way too thin
I'm still here shedding tears at the OK
Mercy on a cowboy, mercy on a cowboy
This cowboy work will never pay

- instrumental -

Boys, if you have a brand new wife
Don't you bring her to the OK
You will never keep her, you will never keep her
Cause you can never make her stay
Wives are never happy at the OK
Women need the money, women need the money
They want a dozen cowboys pay

I'm still here shedding tears at the OK
Mercy on a cowboy, mercy on a cowboy
This cowboy will die poor some day
      
Long Ago In San Antone (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2008) (song5636)

Somewhere in my dreams rests a memory
From long ago in San Antone
It's of someone still very dear to me
And it's for her I sing my song

It was her I found around the Alamo
Her voice was as soft as the morning dove
One last kiss on her sweet lips I bestowed
Oh, how I miss the bliss of her warm love

The moon and stars still render sweet dreams of my heart
As I recall my love from long ago in San Antone
Her kiss was soft and tender from the very start
Soon I must return to that true love I have known

Before very long, to her I will go
My dreams will follow me along
To where I found her around the Alamo
Long ago in San Antone

- instrumental -

The moon and stars still render sweet dreams of my heart
As I recall my love from long ago in San Antone
Her kiss was soft and tender from the very start
Soon I must return to that true love I have known

Before very long, to her I will go
My dreams will follow me along
To where I found her around the Alamo
Long ago in San Antone

Long ago in San Antone
      
I Think She Still Cares (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2008) (song#5637)

My friend said that she had asked about me
He said he heard her speak my name somewhere
And she called my number by mistake yesterday
I think she still cares

I've heard that she haunts the same old places
Where mem'ries of her and me linger there
I know she's not the happy girl she used to be
I think she still cares

She pretends she's happy thinking she don't need me
But I know that silly notion will bring her tears
I never thought she would be so foolish
Cause that girl has loved me too many years

- instrumental -

My friend said that she had asked about me
He said he heard her speak my name somewhere
And when she saw me, she went to pieces
I think she still cares

I've heard that she haunts the same old places
Where mem'ries of her and me linger there
I know she's not the happy girl she used to be
I think she still cares
I think she still cares
      
How to Show Real Love (Larry w. Jones 07/24/2008) (song#5638)

Now I realize that flowers are for bringing
And the one you most prize is for chocolates giving
Dear, now I guess it's too late for love songs singing
But these empty arms of mine can't go on living
I'd love to have you back as wife, friend and lover
Now that I have discovered how to show real love

Now I realize that love is for expressing
And that your sweet love back then was such a blessing
I'd give the world to once more have your caressing
It's depressing to think that our love is over
I'd love to have you back as wife, friend and lover
Now that I have discovered how to show real love

- instrumental -

Now I realize I did so much the wrong way
And love is such a word that only the strong say
Dear, I look back on how I thought so cool I was
And darling, now I see how big a fool I was
I'd love to have you back as wife, friend and lover
Now that I have discovered how to show real love

Now that I have discovered how to show real love
      
Gently You're Drawing Me (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2008) (song#5639)

Gently darling, you're drawing me deep in love with you
Oh, so gently you're thawing my heart that's been so blue
Dear, I can't hide this feeling of gentleness that grew
Because gently you're drawing me deep in love with you

Gently, so gently you came to stand here by my side
Gently, so gently I understand as time goes by
I can't hide this feeling that's now gently coming through
Because gently you're drawing me deep in love with you

Dear, you have been so gentle with words you say
Never judgmental of what I do each day
You have been like the calm after the storm
The balm of soothing love has been so warm

Gently darling, you're drawing me deep in love with you

- instrumental -

Dear, you have been so gentle with words you say

I can't hide this feeling that's now gently coming through

Those Few Hurt Me (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2008) (song#5640)

Dear, I'll try to remember only the joys that we knew
And I'll just try to forget the few times you proved untrue
But a few of those moments still weigh heavy on my mind
I find those few hurt me through and through all the time

Dear, I'll try to remember only your love, and that's all
And I'll just try to forget the few times of your deep fall
Oh, but a few of those lonely nights still seem like a crime
I find those few hurt me through and through all the time

Dear, I'll try to keep in mind the parts that brought happiness
Then maybe my poor heart won't be caught in such pain as this
Dear, I'll try to remember only the times when you tried
Instead of remem'bring the few times when you lied

- instrumental -

Dear, I'll try to keep in mind the parts that brought happiness
Then maybe my poor heart won't be caught in such pain as this

Dear, I'll try to remember only your love, and that's all
And I'll just try to forget the few times of your deep fall
Oh, but a few of those lonely nights still seem like a crime
I find those few hurt me through and through all the time

Yes dear, those few hurt me through and through all the time

(Stay the angel that you are, angel that you are)
(Just stay the angel that you are)

Stay the angel that you are
Don't let anything change you
Stay the angel that you are
Let no one rearrange you
Darling, keep all the charms you now possess
Let nothing ever harm your loveliness
Stay the angel that you are

Stay the angel you are, so sweet
Just as discreet and divine, dear
Stay the angel you are, so grand
So that this man will want you near
Fresh and so sweet or old and gray
Here close to me or off afar
In night or day I'll always pray
That you will heed the words I say
Just stay the angel that you are

(Just stay the angel that you are)

Sailors Lament (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2008) (song#5642)

Beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
I'm a young sailor and this is my last song

As I sailed out on the Gulf of Mexico
As I sailed out from Mexico one day
I spied a young sailor wrapped in white linen
Wrapped up in white linen in the salt spray

I see by your outfit that you're a sailor
These words he said as I boldly stepped by
Come stay beside me and hear my sad story
I'm stabbed in the chest and now I must die

Beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
Call the captain to o'er my body pray
In Davy Jones locker with sea waves o'er me
I'm a young sailor and now I must pay

T'was in the foc'sle I used to go dashing
T'was in the foc'sle my skills I displayed
Rum I was drinking and cards I was playing
I'm stabbed in the chest and dying today

Get some strong deckhands to carry my coffin
Let me drink strong rum as my death bell tolls
Silk for pretty maidens to wrap my coffin
Silk to wrap my coffin as sea waves roll

Beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
I'm a young sailor and this is my last song
      
Last Roundup (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2008) (song#5643)

Many long trails ago in days of boyhood
Cowboy games I used to play for my fun
Riding down an old familiar trailway
I heard my Daddy call at set of sun

Roll on, roll on, it's roundup time
The corral gate's closing at last
Roll on, roll on, it's roundup time
The last roundup is coming fast

The fondest memories of my boyhood
Were so often found when at roundup time
And as shadows lengthened in the evening
On the last cows the cowboys ropes would wind

That's when I knew my Daddy soon would call
From the corral to cowboys standing tall

Roll on, roll on, it's roundup time
The corral gate's closing at last
Roll on, roll on, it's roundup time
The last roundup is coming fast

- instrumental -

The corral gate's closing at last
Roll on, roll on, it's roundup time
The last roundup is coming fast

Una Belleza Rosa (Larry W. Jones 07/26/2008) (song#5644)

When the stars cease all their winking
And the night time rolls away
Here's a new day, for a new way
To show my love for you

When the bluebird starts his singing
Rainbows drive the gray away
Here's a new day, for a new way
To prove my love is true

I can see this brand new morning
And I can see these skies of blue
Your love is forever warming
Like a fire when winter's due

Una belleza rosa
You are the beautiful one
Una belleza rosa
My heart you have forever won
Please never take your sweet love away

- instrumental -

Once my heart was sad and lonely
I didn't know what to do
Then you became my one and only
Now my heart belongs to you

Una belleza rosa
You are the beautiful one
Una belleza rosa
My heart you have forever won
Please never take your sweet love away

Una belleza rosa
You are the beautiful one
Una belleza rosa
My heart you have forever won
Please never take your sweet love away
      
That's All I Ask Of You (Larry W. Jones 07/27/2008) (song#5645)

True love and tenderness, true love and tenderness
That's all I ask of you

Some lives are filled with pain
Somes lives can't take the strain
With you, my life won't be that way
No loneliness will live here again

True love and tenderness, true love and tenderness
That's all I ask of you

- instrumental -

Some lives turn like the wind
Once lived, love's gone again
But darling, you walked in
Light of day came again
Some lives do foolish things
Some lives are cruelest dreams
Your love is kind and true
Just mind that tender theme
That's all I ask of you

True love and tenderness, true love and tenderness
That's all I ask of you
      
Single Or Together (Larry W. Jones 07/27/2008) (song#5646)

Single or together
It doesn't matter now, the choice is up to you
Single or together
What you want, I'll allow, dear, what else can I do

I will always love you whichever way you go
By the moon above you, both of us need to know
Single or together
Where do we go from here, single or together, dear

Single or together
Dear, will you stay by my side, you must now decide
Single or together
For me, don't be concerned, I have loved, lost and learned

- instrumental -

I will always love you whichever way you go
By the moon above you, both of us need to know

I will always love you through the darkest weather
Darling, tell me how it will be, as to whether
Single or together
Where do we go from here, single or together, dear

I will always love you through the darkest weather
Darling, tell me how it will be, as to whether
Single or together
Where do we go from here, single or together, dear
      
Tittle Tattle Tears (Larry W. Jones 07/27/2008) (song#5647)

Your tittle-tattle tears are tattling on you
And more than my two ears know everything you do
The word is out that you've been out a time or two
You're in the middle of a battle of false and true
Your tittle-tattle tears are tattling on you

Your tittle-tattle tears are things you cannot hide
All of these years you've tried to keep it all inside
But you couldn't hide it even when you tried
You're in the middle of a battle of false and true
Your tittle-tattle tears are tattling on you

While you were out, I had no doubt about your plans
Cause some of my best friends were some of your best fans
The word is out that you've been out a time or two
Now you can't defend the reason why you're so blue
Your tittle-tattle tears are tattling on you

- instrumental -

You're in the middle of a battle of false and true
Your tittle-tattle tears are tattling on you

Your tittle-tattle tears are tattling on you
      
Boxcar On The Outbound (Larry W. Jones 07/29/2008) (song#5648)

Beside the train tracks I was born
The wild geese call was so forlorn
When they called to me with their song
Come and go with us your life long
A boxcar on the outbound is my home

It breaks my heart to see you cry
Oh how I hate to say goodbye
I'm sorry for my wayward song
But like the wild geese, I must roam
A boxcar on the outbound is my home

It's just my way to try and find
Some far off place I've never been
And I can't face the ties that bind
Although our friendship will now end
An outbound train just rolled around the bend

- instrumental -

It breaks my heart to see you cry
Oh how I hate to say goodbye
I'm sorry for my wayward song
But like the wild geese, I must roam
A boxcar on the outbound is my home

The call for love's inside of me
But lasting love will never be
A train just passed like geese that roam
I'm sorry for my wayward song
A boxcar on the outbound is my home

I'm sorry for my wayward song
A boxcar on the outbound is my home
      
That's How It Is When You're Lonely (Larry W. Jones 07/29/2008) (song#5649)

When tears start rolling down your face
And your voice trembles in disgrace
And love is gone without a trace
That's how it is when you're lonely

You feel so blue, you stay at home
Cause in a crowd you feel alone
You cry and weep until the dawn
That's how it is when you're lonely

Not everyone has dreams that died
Not everyone must run and hide
But I'm one with a load to bear
On lost love's road, I've had my share

- instrumental -

When thoughts are full of memories
And heart strings pull for sympathy
When blues last for eternity
That's how it is when you're lonely

When tears start rolling down your face
And your voice trembles in disgrace
And love is gone without a trace
That's how it is when you're lonely

That's how it is when you're lonely
      
No More Like You Around (Larry W. Jones 07/29/2008) (song#5650)

I used to view all girls alike
I just knew they were all the same
Oh, it was an established fact
They just went by different names

Then I met you and realized
What a treasure that I had found
And more than gold, you, I now prize
For there's no more like you around

No, there's no more like you around
I guess I was too blind to see
That real true love could still be found
That I now see in front of me

- instrumental -

Then I met you and realized
What a treasure that I had found
And more than gold, you, I now prize
For there's no more like you around

Darling, now that you came along
My love song has a brand new sound
And I'm glad my view was so wrong
For there's no more like you around

No more like you around
      
Times To Recall And Times To Let Go (Larry W. Jones 07/29/2008) (song#5651)

Lately I've written down lines from my life
Of times to recall and times to let go
Some were all joy and some were only woe
I recall the times that should be let go

One time I recall was the day we met
That sad day we parted, I should let go
Dear, I can't forget how I felt so small
Those times to let go are times I recall

- instrumental -

One time I recall was the day we met
That sad day we parted, I should let go
Dear, I can't forget how I felt so small
Those times to let go are times I recall

Times to recall are when love was aglow
Then when I lost you are times to let go
I wrote down lines from my life in a scrawl
I recall the times that should be let go

Lately I've written down lines from my life
Of times to recall and times to let go
      
This Is The End (Larry W. Jones 07/29/2008) (song#5652)

Well, this is the end, there's nothing to cheer
That day's come when I knew you'd leave me, dear
Well, I can't pretend that teardrops won't fall
This is the end, dear, you don't care at all

I've been a fool who's been more than a friend
For I took you back again and again
Well, this is the end, you're free now and gone
Find a new fool, for me, this is the end

- instrumental -

Well, this is the end, there's nothing to cheer
Cause nothing will mend this heart full of tears
Well, this is the end, now starts loneliness
Yes, this is the end, end of love, I guess

The clock on the mantle wound to a halt
Love has gone bad even seasoned with salt
Well, this is the end, dismantle, rescind
Find a new fool, for me, this is the end
      
This Little Cowboy Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 07/29/2008) (song#5653)

Soon he will wake me like he always does
He'll whisper in my ear, it's wake up time
When I take a nap, that's the way it goes
How I love this little cowboy of mine

After stable chores, we both have coffee
And he says, Daddy, I like milk in mine
Like you, Daddy, some day I want to be
How I love this little cowboy of mine

I know one day he'll grow tall and be gone
Then he'll have a small cowboy of his own
But for now, with him I will spend my prime
Before this old cowboy runs out of time

- instrumental -

But for now, he's Daddy's cowboy son
When in my boots, he'll still be number one

After stable chores, we both have coffee
And he says, Daddy, I like milk in mine
Like you, Daddy, some day I want to be
How I love this little cowboy of mine

I know one day he'll grow tall and be gone
Then he'll have a small cowboy of his own
But for now, with him I will spend my prime
Before this old cowboy runs out of time

How I love this little cowboy of mine
      
Yesteryear This Year And Tomorrow (Larry W. Jones 07/29/2007) (song#5654)

Three years I hate to see come again
Three years when I couldn't ever win
Three years that come and go with sorrow
Yesteryear, this year and tomorrow
Yesteryear, this year and tomorrow

Three years I have known only sadness
Three years that take away my gladness
And the year beginning tomorrow
Will become this year, then yesteryear
And another sad year tomorrow

Three years I hate to see come again
Three years when I couldn't ever win

- instrumental -

Three years I have known only sadness
Three years that take away my gladness
And the year beginning tomorrow
Will become this year, then yesteryear
And another sad year tomorrow

Three years I hate to see come again
Three years when I couldn't ever win
Yesteryear, this year and tomorrow
Yesteryear, this year and tomorrow
      
Last Waltz (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5655)

Dear, this will be our last waltz for awhile
Please don't cast to others your lovely charms
Make my future dreams all come true, and smile
I'll be waiting to hold you in my arms

Dear, this will be our last kiss for awhile
Oh, how I wish we didn't have to part
You're everything in my life that's worthwhile
Please keep my love locked safely in your heart

Dear, I hope your heart feels the way as mine
When the time comes for me to go away
Let no one steal away your heart divine
I will love you tomorrow as today

- instrumental -

Dear, I hope your heart feels the way as mine
When the time comes for me to go away
Let no one steal away your heart divine
I will love you tomorrow as today

Dear, this will be our last waltz for awhile
So, let me hold you close just for tonight
Steal my heart away with your lovely smile
My dreams of you will be my guiding light
      
Just To Love You (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5656)

I'd turn my back on my friends just to love you, dear
Those friendships may not mend but I'd be of good cheer
Because you would make all my fondest dreams appear
Yes, that's how far I would go just to love you, dear

I'd burn all of my bridges just to love you, dear
I'd break any chain that held me and never fear
And my love for you would forever be sincere
Yes, that's how far I would go just to love you, dear

I'd do almost anything just to love you, dear
Anything at all just to hold and have you near
The guiding star by which my ship of love will steer
Yes, I'd go that far, and more, just to love you, dear

- instrumental -

I'd burn all of my bridges just to love you, dear
I'd break any chain that held me and never fear
And my love for you would forever be sincere
Yes, that's how far I would go just to love you, dear

I'd do almost anything just to love you, dear
Anything at all just to hold and have you near
The guiding star by which my ship of love will steer
Yes, I'd go that far, and more, just to love you, dear
      
Don't Follow Me (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5657)

Don't follow me if you don't want to go wrong
And don't follow me if there you don't belong
You'll spend the rest of your life in lonely years
Don't follow me down to the valley of tears

False words were spoken that sounded sweet and low
True vows were broken that I had thought would grow
I'll spend the rest of my life in lonely years
As a new guest down in the valley of tears

The valley of tears is for all who've not learned
That when it comes to love, many will get burned
You'll spend the rest of your life in lonely years
Don't follow me down to the valley of tears

- instrumental -

The valley of tears is for all who've not learned
That when it comes to love, many will get burned

False words were spoken that sounded sweet and low
True vows were broken that I had thought would grow
I'll spend the rest of my life in lonely years
As a new guest down in the valley of tears

Don't follow me down to the valley of tears
      
Mutual Interests (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5658)

We have mutual interests, doorknob on the door
We get turned around, pulled and slammed so much we're sore
And we both get to hear her, so long and goodbye
Oh yes, we have mutual interests, you and I

We have mutual interests, clock upon the shelf
Both of us get all wound up and can't help ourself
And you're always so wide awake at half past three
Yes, we have mutual interests of late, I see

Bottle of wine, we'll get along fine, wait and see
Mutual interests in drowning worries to be
When you and I combine, we're sure to be real pals
Bottle of wine, please help me get over that gal

- instrumental -

We have mutual interests, all you window panes
We get all wet when my tears flow and you get rains
We're just as close as mutual interests can be
I guess it shows, this lonely house and lonely me

We have mutual interests, doorknob on the door
We have mutual interests, clock upon the shelf
Bottle of wine, we'll get along fine, wait and see
I guess it shows, this lonely house and lonely me
      
Dreaming Of You (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5659)

Darling, lately I've been spending my days
Pretending and ending my days
Dreaming of you

Now, why do I do this to me
Dear, the clue is true bliss to me
Dreaming of you

And when I go to sleep at night, moonbeams
Creep into all of my dreams of you

Darling, lately I've been thinking of one
Linking possibilities for fun
Dreaming of you

- instrumental -
 
Now, why am I spending my days
Pretending and ending my days
Dreaming of you

Now, why do I do this to me
Dear, the clue is true bliss to me
Dreaming of you

And when I go to sleep at night, moonbeams
Creep into all of my dreams of you

Now, I'm thinking of one
Linking possibilities for fun
Dreaming of you
      
Summer Was Long Ago (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5660)

Yesterday, it was summer
Summer was long ago
A bluebird on my windowsill told me so

Yesterday, we were sweethearts
As happy as May
But today your love is somewhere far away

Yesterday, I was in sunshine, now in rain
I've searched for you until today
But my looking was all in vain

Now, today, it is winter
My heart's in alarm
Because yesterday was summer in your arms

- instrumental -

Yesterday, it was summer
Summer was long ago
A bluebird on my windowsill told me so

Yesterday, I was in sunshine, now in rain
I've searched for you until today
But my looking was all in vain

Yesterday, it was summer
Summer was long ago
      
The Song Will Be On Me (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5661)

Some day, some way, we'll sing our song
We'll harmonize together, wait and see
Some day, some way, it won't be long
And on that day, the song will be on me

Dear, you will one day take my hand
And I'll look in your eyes adoringly
You'll be my dream just as I planned
And on that day, the song will be on me

Some day, some way, I am certain
That you will be my one and only one
No longer will hearts be hurtin'
You will have my shoulder to lean upon

Some day, some way, our love will grow
Just the way that true love was meant to be
We'll sing our song while sweet wine flows 
And on that day, the song will be on me

- instrumental -

Dear, you will one day take my hand
And I'll look in your eyes adoringly
You'll be my dream just as I planned
And on that day, the song will be on me

Some day, some way, our love will grow
Just the way that true love was meant to be
We'll sing our song while sweet wine flows 
And on that day, the song will be on me
      
Invite Me Into Your World (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5662)

Invite me into your world
Please let me enter in
There's a place in your heart
For more than just a friend

Invite me into your world
I'll leave my fears behind
Invite me into your world
That's always on my mind

Leave the door to your heart wide open
I would like to give your world a tour
I'm sure I will find love there, and then
I'll have the key to that world of yours

Darling, wait for me there
Please have your arms unfurled
My darling, please be fair
Invite me into your world

- instrumental -

Leave the door to your heart wide open

I'm sure I will find love there, and then
I'll have the key to that world of yours

Please have your arms unfurled
My darling, please be fair
Invite me into your world
      
A Few Flaws Like My Own (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5663)

What can cause a grown man to cry
A few flaws like my own and your goodbye
What can cause a grown man such pain
Cause time has shown I'm losing you again

Dear, that's what caused these tears to start
And that's what caused this broken heart
I know what causes a grown man to cry
A few flaws like my own and your goodbye

I thought a few flaws would be overlooked
Your sweet love was paused and mine undercooked
I didn't know there were laws against such things
This happens to all hearts with broken strings 

- instrumental -

I thought a few flaws would be overlooked
Your sweet love was paused and mine undercooked

Dear, that's what caused these tears to start
And that's what caused this broken heart
I know what causes a grown man to cry
A few flaws like my own and your goodbye

A few flaws like my own and your goodbye
      
No Chance Of Loving You (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5664)

Dear, there's no chance of loving you
Cause there's no chance that I could win
Your love is pledged to another
And there's no room to let me in

Dear, there's no romance in dreaming
If dreaming only makes me blue
So, I'll just stop all my scheming
I'll chance the loss of losing you

Dear, I had hoped that you would see
That you and I were meant to be
But now that you won't hear my plea
My loving you can never be

- instrumental -

Dear, there's no chance of loving you
Cause there's no chance that I could win
Your love is pledged to another
And there's no room to let me in

Dear, I had hoped you'd come along
And help me sing a lovers song
Although I'll love you just as strong
I'll just walk this old world alone

There's no chance of loving you
      
Everyone Loves You (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5665)

I hope you don't mind everyone's stares
Everyone loves you, everyone cares
That's the way it is in love's affairs
You're everyone's dream they dream about
You're as fresh as spring without a doubt
You're the one everyone's mad about

Everyone loves you, everyone cares
You're the answer to every man's prayer
Everyone loves you, and so do I
For you, the moon I would gladly buy
Oh, my darling, please don't put on airs
I'm not everyone, just the only one
Who'll love you forever and really care

- instrumental -

You're everyone's dream they dream about
You're as fresh as spring without a doubt
You're the one everyone's mad about

Everyone loves you, everyone cares
You're the answer to every man's prayer
Everyone loves you, and so do I
For you, the moon I would gladly buy
Oh, my darling, please don't put on airs
I'm not everyone, just the only one
Who'll love you forever and really care
      
Cross The Pecos At Langtry (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2008) (song#5666)

Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Ride like the wind when it blows
Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Belinda's in El Paso

On the Goodnight-Loving Trail it was evening
Belinda was all that prevailed in his mind
Desperado was the life he'd been living
The reason Belinda had left him behind
On many trails he'd been a desperado
Belinda had gone back with heart full of woe
Now that the night was black, the desperado
Would ride fast to her side in old El Paso

Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Ride like the wind when it blows
Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Belinda's in El Paso

Moonlight shined on the Goodnight trail behind him
He had given the Texas Rangers a slip
Belinda was in El Paso to meet him
Though she hated the guns he wore at his hip
He rode along the Pecos for the crossing
And remembered his promise of long ago
Soon, both the guns she hated, he was tossing
Into the waters of the muddy Pecos

Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Ride like the wind when it blows
Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Belinda's in El Paso

Cracks from the Rangers rifles split the silence
The desperado rode on just like the wind
But the Texas Rangers were tall, brave lawmen 
And the desperado knew he couldn't win
Belinda found him on the ground and dying
Surrounded by Texas Rangers, men of fame
As she held him in her arms, he was trying
To pledge his promise as he whispered her name

Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Ride like the wind when it blows
Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Belinda's in El Paso

Cross the Pecos at Langtry
Belinda's in El Paso
      
Stagecoach Rodeo (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5667)

Crack my rawhide on their behind
Make both them leaders pay me mind
Boys, heave them wheels and turn 'em round
Git this stagecoach back on hard ground

Roll stagecoach roll, roll stagecoach roll
Roll along the road to my rodeo

T'was a cold day in December
When I hitched my six-team to go
To drive the road they called the spur
Road called the stagecoach rodeo

Roll stagecoach roll, roll stagecoach roll
Roll along the road to my rodeo

Around the bend the road got steep
Crossin' the road, a mountain creek
Hear the crack of my rawhide whip
On six-team horses as they slip

Roll stagecoach roll, roll stagecoach roll
Roll along the road to my rodeo

When I return, I'll no more burn
For life of which I used to yearn
Cause all my life I'll remember
Drive no stagecoach in December

Roll stagecoach roll, roll stagecoach roll
Roll along the road to my rodeo
      
Wine Me Down (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5668)

Once I wound up as the life of the party
I always got the biggest laughs of the year
Oh, I went through them bar room doors so hearty
All my silly jokes my pals wanted to hear
But now all I do when night time comes around
Is just think of her and then I wine me down

Wine me down, let me go and then watch me cry
Sweet red wine is all that seems to get me by
My old gal ain't around cause she done left town
My old pals gather round just to wine me down

- instrumental -

I guess I can thank Mr Gallo, so I've heard
He brews the sweetest, low-down red Thunderbird
My old party days used to be of renown
Now I think of her and then I wine me down

Wine me down, let me go and then watch me cry
Sweet red wine is all that seems to get me by
My old gal ain't around cause she done left town
My old pals gather round just to wine me down
      
Wide Open Range (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5669)

Mid cities and towns, though a cowboy may roam
Be it ever so humble
A lone cowboy's wide open range is his home
The clear western sky meets the wide prairie there
Search the world over, you'll find none is so fair

Range, range, the wide open range is my home
Be it ever so humble
This lone cowboy's wide open range is my home

When this cowboy roams, cities sparkle in vain
Show me that corral on the prairie again
Hear the coyotes and the whippoorwill's call
Oh, give me the wide open range above all

Range, range, the wide open range is my home
Be it ever so humble
This lone cowboy's wide open range is my home

To the range I'll return, unburden my cares
The clear western sky will smile upon me there
And no more from that range will I ever roam
Be it ever so humble
This lone cowboy's wide open range is my home

Range, range, the wide open range is my home
Be it ever so humble
This lone cowboy's wide open range is my home
      
World Full Of Lovers (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5670)

I'm not the only one who knows how it feels
To have pain down in your heart that never heals
I found out without a doubt, you let me down
In a world full of lovers, you weren't around

- instrumental -

I gladly told everyone about your love
You were my life's joy and my heart's only pride
But I don't know dear, what you were thinking of
I just know I'm near to dying here inside

- instrumental -

Ever since you left, I wonder all the time
The reason is on some shelf that I can't find
Dear, I've thought it over but still haven't found
In a world full of lovers, you weren't around

Dear, I've thought it over but still haven't found
In a world full of lovers, you weren't around
      
Everybody's Sweetheart (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5671)

Now, you're known as everybody's sweetheart
Everyone's grown to call you sweetheart too
But dear, I know that you're only kidding
To get everyone to do your bidding
Some day when you discover that you're blue
You'll find, kid, others can play your game too

If you're known around as everybody's sweetheart
Then true love will never come around to your door
But years will roll around and you will wonder why
Why everybody that you have known then knows you
Knows you then as nobody's sweetheart anymore

- instrumental -

Now, you're known as everybody's sweetheart
Everyone's grown to call you sweetheart too

If you're known around as everybody's sweetheart
Then true love will never come around to your door
But years will roll around and you will wonder why
Why everybody that you have known then knows you
Knows you then as nobody's sweetheart anymore
      
Your Heart Doesn't Know Me (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5672)

I gave my heart to you when you said hello
Feel how fast it beats because it loves you so
But your heart can't tell why my heart beats so well
Your heart doesn't know me

No, you don't know my heart beats for you tonight
Your heart doesn't know that something isn't right
Your heart only knows me as a friend
But mine only knows it cannot mend
Your heart doesn't know me

My heart never knew the start of love so true
And now it aches for only the sake of you
I'm afraid that I can't tell it, love's a lie
That, by chance, my beating heart might break in two

I left my heart with you when you said goodbye
And as you walked away, my heart just died
Oh, your heart can't ever tell, mine loves you well
Your heart doesn't know me

- instrumental -

My heart never knew the start of love so true
And now it aches for only the sake of you
I'm afraid that I can't tell it, love's a lie
That, by chance, my beating heart might break in two

I left my heart with you when you said goodbye
And as you walked away, my heart just died
Oh, your heart can't ever tell, mine loves you well
Your heart doesn't know me
      
I Just Stopped By (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5673)

Was there a box of roses at your front door
The note discloses that I'm missing you more
Did you find the roses under your porch light
I just stopped by with a broken heart last night

Was there a teardrop or two on your doormat
They fell while I talked to your calico cat
Were my footprints mopped up by rain at first light
I just stopped by with a broken heart last night

Darling, I still love you, I just can't help myself
Will you help me get my heart from off the shelf
My love's strong, my mind doesn't know wrong from right
I just stopped by with a broken heart last night

- instrumental -

Darling, I still love you, I just can't help myself
Will you help me get my heart from off the shelf
My love's strong, my mind doesn't know wrong from right
I just stopped by with a broken heart last night

Was there a box of roses at your front door
The note discloses that I'm missing you more
Did you find the roses under your porch light
I just stopped by with a broken heart last night
      
If You Believe I Didn't Cry (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5674)

If you believe I didn't cry when you said goodbye
You're wrong although I wish you were right
If you don't believe I dream of you each lonely night
You're wrong although I wish you were right

Don't go believing that my love wasn't true
Don't believe that I haven't grieved over you
If you believe there's another love in sight
You're wrong although I wish you were right

- instrumental -

If you believe I didn't cry when you said goodbye
You're wrong although I wish you were right
If you don't believe I dream of you each lonely night
You're wrong although I wish you were right

I should have never believed you from the start
I just couldn't see that you weren't meant for me
If you believe today that my heart won't pay
You're wrong although I wish you were right
      
My Trusting Heart (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5675)

My trusting heart, darling, you made weep
I cried and cried cause my love was deep
You never tried when you needed to
My trusting heart is through with you

Don’t come around dear, if you’re the same
My trusting heart couldn’t stand the pain
You closed the door on my love that’s true
My trusting heart is through with you

- instrumental –

My trusting heart has no words to say
For the way you treated me that day
Darling, when you left, you made me blue
My trusting heart is through with you

Don’t come around dear, if you’re the same
My trusting heart couldn’t stand the pain
You closed the door on my love that’s true
My trusting heart is through with you
      
Ashes Of Letters Tied In Blue (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2008) (song#5676)

Last night I burned all your love letters
As I turned the pages one by one
It had been ages since I read them
And I still don't know the wrong I've done

Your first letter was written so sweet
I recall how it swept me off my feet
Oh, how I wept when I thought of you
And ashes of letters tied in blue

- instrumental -

Last night I burned all your love letters
My only concern was too much smoke
But it rendered such precious moments
In the splendor of love words you wrote

Your first letter was written so sweet
But I burned the last love letter too
The one which meant love had met defeat
Mid ashes of letters tied in blue

Last night I burned all your love letters
Ashes of letters tied in blue
      
Your Old Has Been (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2008) (song#5677)

I can't win at being your old has been

I recall your walking away long ago
My heart still falls because I love you so
I recall everything from way back then
I can't win at being your old has been

I recall the chagrin of people's stares
When I begin to cry over my cares
I guess I'll have to take it on the chin
I can't win at being your old has been

- instrumental -

I've got no love to fill these lonesome days
Oh, when will these blues ever go away
My dreams of love are growing mighty thin
I can't win at being your old has been

I recall the chagrin of people's stares
When I begin to cry over my cares
I guess I'll have to take it on the chin
I can't win at being your old has been

I can't win at being your old has been
      
I Must Let You Know (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2008) (song#5678)

As you lay close to me last night, my eyes filled with tears
Tears of thankfulness that our love has no fears
And when you were sound asleep, I looked out at the moon
Blessings my heart keeps, to write a new love tune

Darling, I must let you know how much you mean to me
This miracle of your love that's come to be
My love for you is as warm as the sun in the sky
Dear, I must let you know as each day goes by

Last night I saw a star brightly streak across the sky
I watched the moonlight on your cheek as I sighed
Dear, I must let you know before this day fades away
Let me hold you in my arms and hear me say

Darling, I must let you know how much you mean to me
This miracle of your love that's come to be
My love for you is as warm as the sun in the sky
Dear, I must let you know as each day goes by

- instrumental -

Darling, I must let you know how much you mean to me
This miracle of your love that's come to be
My love for you is as warm as the sun in the sky
Dear, I must let you know as each day goes by

I must let you know as each day goes by
      
Studio Number Nine (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2008) (song#5679)

My new place is small but the space, I call it mine
You'll find me here losing face in studio number nine

I recall, not so long ago, when you walked free
You walked out on plans made especially for you and me

Loneliness has found me, no warm arms surround me
And sunshine does not abound in studio number nine

- instrumental -

I recall, not so long ago, when you walked free
You walked out on plans made especially for you and me

I'll wait in this small space of mine, counting the time
Saving grace would be your face in studio number nine

My new place is small but the space, I call it mine
You'll find me here losing face in studio number nine
      
An Affair Of The Heart (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2008) (song#5680)

Wise men say that love is for a woman and man
And that love is an affair of the heart
But all those wise men just don't seem to understand
That love has never been fair with my heart

If love is an affair of the heart
Then there should be tender and loving care
But mine has always been torn apart
Ever since my very first love affair

If love is an affair of the heart
Then why is it that mine came to an end
Every time love even tried to start
It never got past just being a friend

- instrumental -

If love is an affair of the heart
There should be something to compare it to
Like beauty and lovely works of art
Instead of lost love songs that make me blue

Wise men say that love is for a woman and man
And that love is an affair of the heart
But all those wise men just don't seem to understand
That love has never been fair with my heart

No, love has never been fair with my heart
      
Last Year's Love (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2008) (song#5681)

I didn't weep when you said we were through
Didn't lose sleep, just looked for someone new
Since we've been through, I've held and kissed a few
But all I've held and kissed just wouldn't do

This year's crop of faces
Can't remove the traces
Of last year's love

This year's crop of sweet lips
Somehow cannot eclipse
Sweet last year's love

All these new romances
Are just empty dances
Not last year's love

- instrumental -

I didn't weep when you said we were through
Didn't lose sleep, just looked for someone new
Since we've been through, I've held and kissed a few
But all I've held and kissed just wouldn't do

This year's crop of faces, lips and romance
Can't remove the traces of my one chance
My one chance with last year's dance
Last year's love
Last year's love
Last year's love
      
Ten Years Ago (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2008) (song#5682)

Ten years ago, her blue eyes I loved so
Ten years ago, she whispered, I must go
I asked my blue eyes why, three times or more
But she kissed me goodbye and left my door

My blue eyes left the sight of me
My blue eyes I so longed to see
My blue eyes I loved so
Ten years ago

Ten years ago, I saw her strolling by
Ten years ago, another by her side
Ten years ago, I held fast to my pride
I knew that she would one day be his bride

My blue eyes left the sight of me
My blue eyes I so longed to see
My blue eyes I loved so
Ten years ago

One year ago, t'was on this very day
They laid my own blue eyes down in the clay
For nine long years, they say her blue eyes cried
Mine now tears, t'was her brother by her side

My blue eyes left the sight of me
My blue eyes I so longed to see
My blue eyes I loved so
Ten years ago
      
Cowboy Days (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2008) (song#5683)

Let's look back down life's trail and lift the veil
Back to the days of youth and yore
Back to the old corrals and saddle pals
We'll just be young cowboys once more
Let's ride back to where we would sit and dream
Neath the cottonwoods by the stream

Let's climb that hill to hear the whippoorwill
Back when we had the longhorns fed
Let's roll back to when we were carefree souls
Watch the bold western sky turn red
Let's ride back to days of our golden past
How I wish olden days could last

Where are those trails of long ago
Oh, lift the veil and let us go
Where is that bashful cowboy Joe
And sweet Molly who loved him so

- instrumental -

Let's climb that hill to hear the whippoorwill
Back when we had the longhorns fed
Let's roll back to when we were carefree souls
Watch the bold western sky turn red
Let's ride back to days of our golden past
How I wish olden days could last

Those cowboy days are just a memory
Those cowboy days so dear to me
It makes me sad to lift the veil somehow
Those cowboy days are over now
      
Blue Eyed Tears (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2008) (song#5684)

Tears fell from your blue eyes as you kissed me
But I could tell love in your heart was gone
Somehow love had gone all wrong, I could see
Your blue eyed tears were not for me

I was gone too long, you found another
Another heart came and took yours from me
Darling, don't try to explain, I can see
Your blue eyed tears were not for me

It wasn't long ago, we were happy
But, for you, it was an eternity
You should be ashamed, you've now changed your name
Your blue eyed tears were not for me

- instrumental -

I asked my best friends just what had happened
And they all tried to extend sympathy
It appears that I'll be blue eternally
Your blue eyed tears were not for me

I was gone too long, you found another
Another heart came and took yours from me
Darling, don't try to explain, I can see
Your blue eyed tears were not for me
      
Those Were The Trails (Larry W. Jones 08/01/20080 (song#5685)

Once upon a time there were trails to ride
Where we used to punch a cow or two
Remember how we used to take it all in stride
Young cowboy dreams of all the things we'd do

Those were the trails, old pal
Recall the big corral
And the big barn dance at end of day
A cowboy's life we'd choose
Under big skies of blue
We thought cowboy ways would never fade away
Yip-ee-yi-oh
Those were the trails, old pal, those were the trails
 
Somehow, busy years went charging by us
Most cow trails disappeared along the way
But if I should meet him on a trail drive
We'd shake hands and dream of young cowboy days

Those were the trails, old pal
Recall the big corral
And the big barn dance at end of day
A cowboy's life we'd choose
Under big skies of blue
We thought cowboy ways would never fade away
Yip-ee-yi-oh
Those were the trails, old pal, those were the trails

Just yesterday I viewed the old corral
The bunkhouse still stood where it used to be
There I remembered my old saddle pal
And wondered how often he remembered me

Those were the trails, old pal
Recall the big corral
And the big barn dance at end of day
A cowboy's life we'd choose
Under big skies of blue
We thought cowboy ways would never fade away
Yip-ee-yi-oh
Those were the trails, old pal, those were the trails

From the bunkhouse came familiar laughter
I saw his face and memories laid claim
Saddle pal, we're older and much wiser
But our young cowboy dreams are still the same 

Those were the trails, old pal
Recall the big corral
And the big barn dance at end of day
A cowboy's life we'd choose
Under big skies of blue
We thought cowboy ways would never fade away
Yip-ee-yi-oh
Those were the trails, old pal, those were the trails
      
Dust To Diamonds (Larry W. Jones 08/02/2008) (song#5686)

Just how love comes, I've read but I just can't understand
Maybe it comes from the dust tread by woman and man
Love's a dry river bed, or by a watercourse fed
Now, hearts can be thirsty if love goes dry
Or satisfied in the wink of an eye
My heart had no loving, life was unjust
Then you came around and earned my heart's trust
Now I've learned that time turned dust to diamonds
Time turned dust to diamonds

- instrumental -

Just how love comes, I've read but I just can't understand
Maybe it comes from the dust tread by woman and man
Love's a dry river bed, or by a watercourse fed
Now, hearts can be thirsty if love goes dry
Or satisfied in the wink of an eye

I used to think time was a cruel preacher
But I was a fool, time's a great teacher
It can take hearts that can't heal and teach them to feel
And love that is real, in time, it too can reveal
Dust to diamonds, dust to diamonds
Time turned dust to diamonds
When my heart found you
      
My Heaven On Earth (Larry W. Jones 08/02/2008) (song#5687)

Light from the stars are in your eyes
They are the things that hypnotize
And when my eyes see things you do
They see my heartstrings play for you

I heard music the other day
What sweet words this old world can say
But what stirred my soul, I then knew
Was when you whispered, I love you

My perception, I can't deny
Without exception, I get high
Whenever you come around, dear
And when I hold you in my arms
The cold of stars becomes so warm
My heaven on earth is right here

- instrumental -

I feel the goodness of this earth
From your true love that's given birth
I'd never done so much, it's true
Until I'd won the touch from you

My perception, I can't deny
Without exception, I get high
Whenever you come around, dear
And when I hold you in my arms
The cold of stars becomes so warm
My heaven on earth is right here
      
Roses Can't Grow In A Garden Of Snow (Larry w. Jones 08/02/2008) (song#5688)

Darling, our love started out warm enough
But we let it grow cold when times got tough
Stoking of the fire, neither of us tried
Our once smoking love just withered and died

Roses can't grow in a garden of snow
The ground must be warm and tended by hoe
Seeds that we planted are weeds now, I know
Roses can't grow in a garden of snow

- instrumental -

Pride got in the way, your interests crossed mine
The tide of love strayed back into the brine
Love that was warm became covered with snow
And both of us now have nothing to show

Roses can't grow in a garden of snow
The ground must be warm and tended by hoe
Seeds that we planted are weeds now, I know
Roses can't grow in a garden of snow
      
Table For Two (Larry W. Jones 08/05/2008) (song#5689)

When I made reservations at this restaurant
Dear, I planned that there would be only two
I knew that private was what you would want
A small table for two for only me and you

Now I have reservations I don't understand
What's this I hear whispering in my ear
Is it a suggestion or a command
For one more chair at this table for two, my dear

Now, why are there three chairs at this table for two
One for my conscience, two for me and you
I told myself that I would forget her
So, why are there three chairs at this table for two

- instrumental -

I wanted to tell this lady that I love her
She doesn't know what my mind's going through
How can I tell this lady, I love her
With my conscience sitting at a table for two

I know two is company and three is a crowd
One is my conscience, two are me and you
I can't whisper, I Love You, or out loud
With three of us sitting at this table for two
      
Onward And Onward (Larry W. Jones 08/05/2008) (song#5690)

Well, of all the things that had to come to an end
The fullness of our love is empty once again
I feel the emptiness and ending of my dreams
And the start of that old loneliness in extremes
Onward and onward goes this broken hearted theme

Onward and onward, it just keeps on keeping on
Like a night that never ends with the light of dawn
Love has grown empty, dreams have grown lonely
The world turns in reverse where I belong
Onward and onward goes this broken hearted song

- instrumental -

The fullness of our love is empty once again
I feel the emptiness and ending of my dreams

Onward and onward, it just keeps on keeping on
Like a night that never ends with the light of dawn
Love has grown empty, dreams have grown lonely
The world turns in reverse where I belong
Onward and onward goes this broken hearted song

Onward and onward
Onward and onward
Onward and onward
      
My Whole Wide World Is Happy Now (Larry W. Jones 08/06/2008) (song#5691)

Yesterday nobody loved me
I was so lonesome, I'll avow
But with you beside me, darling
My whole wide world is happy now

You tried so hard to help me smile
With all the love your heart allowed
Dear, loving you is so worthwhile
My whole wide world is happy now

Goodbye sad days, I won't miss you
Hello glad days, no frowning brow
These tears have dried because of you
My whole wide world is happy now

- instrumental -

You tried so hard to help me smile
With all the love your heart allowed
Dear, loving you is so worthwhile
My whole wide world is happy now

Goodbye sad days, I won't miss you
Hello glad days, no frowning brow
These tears have dried because of you
My whole wide world is happy now
      
When The Last Stray Is In The Pen (Larry W. Jones 08/06/2008) (song#5692)

Snow storms blow across the prairie, cattle's in the pen
Except for the strays out on the ridge
There's a blizzard toward the mountains, sky is turning grey
The trail is risky beyond the bridge
A cowboy rides alone, hat pulled down against the wind
Round up all those strays before the storm
He knows the ranch house fire is burning, she waits for him
Thinking of her there will keep him warm

It will feel so good when the last stray is in the pen
When a lone cowboy can be back at the ranch again
It will feel so good when the last stray is in the pen
 
The old fences need some mending, keeps the cattle in
Those kind of things can't wait til the spring
Cowboy's chores are never ending, way it's always been
But her love makes a cowboy a king

It will feel so good when the last stray is in the pen
When a lone cowboy can be back at the ranch again
It will feel so good when the last stray is in the pen

Soon this lone cowboy will have his pony in the barn
In the ranch house she's waiting for me
Her kisses will be a joy as sweet love is reborn
And happiness will mean no more freezing storm to see
This cowboy rides alone, hat pulled down against the wind
Round up all those strays before the storm
I know the ranch house fire is burning, she waits for me
Thinking of her there will keep me warm

It will feel so good when the last stray is in the pen
When this lone cowboy can be back at the ranch again
It will feel so good when the last stray is in the pen
      
Lovely Way To Live (Larry W. Jones 08/06/2008) (song#5693)

When my eyes open every morning
A world of beauty is what I see
A new day of coping comes dawning
As the warmth of love comes over me
I can now face each new day bravely
No harm will come that can make me fall
For I know your strong love can save me
Only you could help me stand so tall

Darling, what a lovely way to live
Giving all the love two hearts can give
Oh yes, what a lovely way to live
Just knowing you give your love to me

- instrumental -

Darling, how did I come to deserve
All the blessings that your sweet love brings
Each day, like honey you come to serve
Sunshine and a thousand other things
I don't worry about tomorrow
Yesterday's cares are all done and through
My eyes will open with no sorrow
Lovely days tomorrow, dear, with you

Darling, what a lovely way to live
Giving all the love two hearts can give
Oh yes, what a lovely way to live
Just knowing you give your love to me
      
Heartbroken Serenade (Larry W. Jones 08/06/2008) (song#5694)

Heartbroken serenade
What happened to those plans we made
I remember a song of love
A song we both sang yesterday

Heartbroken serenade
Tell me, why did love's music fade
Love that we both sealed with a kiss
Now revealed as love I will miss

Oh, since my love, she now evades
Both night and day, it seems to me
I hear played, heartbroken serenade
Won't let me be, won't set me free

Once our love was so strong and kind
Now her love's nowhere to be found
And I can't get out of my mind
That old lonesome heartbroken sound

- instrumental -

Heartbroken serenade
What happened to those plans we made
I remember a song of love
A song we both sang yesterday

Heartbroken serenade
Play again the love songs we made
And maybe then will fade away
This lonely heartbroken serenade
      
My Heart Fell Into Caring Hands (Larry W. Jones 08/06/2008) (song#5695)

My heart fell into caring hands
Caring hands that make dreams come true
A love that isn't built on sand
My heart's in caring hands with you

You brought joy to this heart of mine
The things you employ, I love so
You replaced the rain with sunshine
With caring hands, our love will grow

Dear, please don't change your love, so grand
Or my heart will be in sorrow
And never close your caring hands
I'll need them right here tomorrow

- instrumental -

You brought joy to this heart of mine
The things you employ, I love so
You replaced the rain with sunshine
With caring hands, our love will grow

My heart fell into caring hands
Caring hands that make dreams come true
A love that isn't built on sand
My heart's in caring hands with you
      
Cattle Callin' Cousins (Larry W. Jones 08/06/2008) (song#5696)

When I was a young cowboy, my Daddy told me, boy
Once you've been a cowboy, nothing else brings joy
Once you've been a cowboy, always a cowboy you are
Now I don't like this city life, darlin', can't you see
I've always been a cowboy, that cowboy's still in me

I've got cattle callin' cousins, cattle callin' kin
They'll open up that big corral gate and let me in
My cattle callin' cousins will holler howdy-ho
So darlin', pack your cattle saddle and let us go

Dear, you found this country cowboy with a broken heart
We got married in the city for a brand new start
But dear, a dozen grinnin' faces of cowboys call
And I'm doggone homesick for that cowboy cattle call

- instrumental -

I've got cattle callin' cousins, cattle callin' kin
They'll open up that big corral gate and let me in
My cattle callin' cousins will holler howdy-ho
So darlin', pack your cattle saddle and let us go

I've got cattle callin' cousins, cattle callin' kin
They'll open up that big corral gate and let me in
I've got cattle callin' cousins
Cattle callin' cousins
Cattle callin' cousins
      
Chasing The Wind (Larry W. Jones 08/06/2008) (song#5697)

On chilly days I know the ways a man can be
I don't want to be here facing things I can't win
For this real lonely man, I need to feel your hand
But for me, I might as well be chasing the wind

When sundown comes around and I can't see your smile
And I can't look into your loving eyes again
I stop and think awhile of things once so worthwhile
But I think I might as well be chasing the wind

Rain runs down the willow tree like tears do on me
As I remember the way our love was back then
On my pillow, your memories come racing in
I know in dreams tonight I'll be chasing the wind

- instrumental -

When sundown comes around and I can't see your smile
I stop and think awhile of things once so worthwhile

Rain runs down the willow tree like tears do on me
As I remember the way our love was back then
On my pillow, your memories come racing in
I know in dreams tonight I'll be chasing the wind
      
My Darlin's Hand (Larry W. Jones 08/06/2008) (song#5698)

Now, I'm not one to say she might stumble
But I'm holding tight to my darlin's hand
Now, on some days I know she might grumble
That's quite alright, I'll try to understand

I'm not the one to say love's forever
Cause forever is just a state of mind
Oh, but when my love will end is never
In my mind, she will be forever mine

Even if tomorrow stays far away
Today I have her and her love so grand
And even if sorrow comes, there's no way
That I would let go of my darlin's hand

- instrumental -

I'm not the one to say love's forever
Cause forever is just a state of mind
Oh, but when my love will end is never
In my mind, she will be forever mine

Even if tomorrow stays far away
Today I have her and her love so grand
And even if sorrow comes, there's no way
That I would let go of my darlin's hand
      
Take The Road Back Home (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5699)

Dance on with your new love
Romance, have a good time
Let him take you out, love
And fill your glass of wine
Dream all you can, my love
I'll forgive when he's gone
I'm the one to think of
Still faithful here at home

Neon lights blinded you
They have for a long time
Your world cannot be true
Like mine you left behind
With these lonely teardrops
I'm waiting here alone
When you wake up darling
Come, take the road back home

Come, take the road back home
Please darling, no more roam
My arms are open wide
I need you by my side
I'll take it all in stride
Come, take the road back home
Please darling, no more roam
Come, take the road back home
      
Raised On Texas Swing (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5700)

Darlin', I really like your dance
Strikes me as good ol slow romance
But I was raised on Texas swing

Yeah, I was raised on Texas swing
Steel guitars and fast fiddle strings
Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys
Are still the kings of Texas swing
Dear, thanks for the invitation
But if you want real sensation
Put on your boots and cowgirl things
Cause I was raised on Texas swing

Yeah, I was raised on Texas swing
Texas music is the real thing
A big barn dance on Friday night
A cowboy's chance to hold you tight
Darlin', I really like your dance
Strikes me as good ol slow romance
But Bob Wills wouldn't do that thing
And I was raised on Texas swing

There's something about Texas music
That some states citizens can't see
In the heart of Texas music
You'll find the Texas heart of me
Dear, thanks for the invitation
But if you want real sensation
Put on your boots and cowgirl things
Cause I was raised on Texas swing

Yeah, I was raised on Texas swing
Yee Ha!
      
Don't Leave Me Alone Too Long (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5701)

I know it sounds like another lost love song
And you tell me, don't bother you, just be strong
But nights don't get any shorter with you gone
Don't leave me alone too long

I need someone to help me when things go wrong
And I don't feel like going out in a throng
Darling, please come on back here where you belong
Don't leave me alone too long

Dear, your memories are what I have only
And I beg you please, don't leave me this lonely
My heart cries because it knows something is wrong
I'm just sounding like another lost love song

- instrumental -

Where you go, I know that I can't tag along
I'll stay here and drag my broken dreams gone wrong
Dear, I need your love if I am to go on
Don't leave me alone too long

I need someone to help me when things go wrong
And I don't feel like going out in a throng
Darling, please come on back here where you belong
Don't leave me alone too long

Don't leave me alone too long
      
New Beginning (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5702)

I know why the sun keeps on shining
I know why ocean waves kiss the shore
They know of the new beginning of my world
New beginning of my world forevermore

I know why the bluebirds begin their singing
I know why the new moon starts to glow above
They know of the new beginning of my world
New beginning of the start of our true love

I look up at the heavens in the evening
See the stars begin to brightly shine anew
I know why because they understand
They're there to shine down on me and you

- instrumental -

I know why my heart keeps on beating
I know why my eyes are now both dried
They know of the new beginning of my world
New beginning of my world, so satisfied

I know why the bluebirds begin their singing
I know why the new moon starts to glow above
They know of the new beginning of my world
New beginning of the start of our true love
      
Everybody Writes A Love Song (Larry W. Jones 08/07/20080 (song#5703)

Now, I'm the guy to whom she said goodbye
And I'm the guy who done broke down to cry
But I'm not the only guy to write this kind of love song
The kind of song that says somebody done somebody wrong

Everybody writes a song just like me
Somebody done somebody wrong song, you agree
They write about the tears for the years he or she was gone
Everybody writes a love song
Somebody done somebody wrong song, just like me

Now, tears won't bring a love back that's already gone
And neither will the sad years as they roll along
Lost loves are why everyone writes those lost love songs
Everybody writes a love song
Just like I write about somebody done somebody wrong

- instrumental -

Now, tears won't bring a love back that's already gone
And neither will the sad years as they roll along
Lost loves are why everyone writes those lost love songs
Everybody writes a love song
Just like I write about somebody done somebody wrong

Everybody writes a love song
Just like I write about somebody done somebody wrong
Everybody writes a love song
Everybody writes a love song
      
Do You Ever Get Tired Of Tormenting Me (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5704)

Do you know you make my eyes cry all the time
Do you know my heart's in chains while yours is free
Darling, don't you know this is a cruel crime
Do you ever get tired of tormenting me

Do you know that I've forgotten how to smile
Do you know that my face is sad as can be
Darling, don't you know the extent of my trial
Do you ever get tired of tormenting me

My mind is tormented by your memory
I was blind of time spent in my reverie
Darling, don't you know what you're doing to me
Do you ever get tired of tormenting me

- instrumental -

Do you know that I've forgotten how to smile
Do you know that my face is sad as can be
Darling, don't you know the extent of my trial
Do you ever get tired of tormenting me

My mind is tormented by your memory
I was blind of time spent in my reverie
Darling, don't you know what you're doing to me
Do you ever get tired of tormenting me
      
Fair Weather Girlfriend (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5705)

My fair weather girlfriend, that's all you've been
My fair weather girlfriend, this is the end

When pretty rainbows shine after the rain
You say you are mine, time and time again
When clouds appear, I doubt if you'll be near
When, most of all, I dearly need a friend

My fair weather girlfriend, that's all you've been
My fair weather girlfriend, this is the end

- instrumental -

Today, you're right here beside me
You smile and say you understand
And I want to believe it's so
When I need your love to guide me
You speed off to some wonderland
And I'm left to grieve in my woe

- instrumental -

When pretty rainbows shine after the rain
You say you are mine, time and time again
When clouds appear, I doubt if you'll be near
When, most of all, I dearly need a friend

My fair weather girlfriend, that's all you've been
My fair weather girlfriend, this is the end
      
Forever Mine (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5706)

Darling, forever mine, you will always be
That's a long, long time to be with me
They say that time can change everything divine
But I won't mind, if forever, you're...
Forever mine

My life really began the day I found you
From a man of clay I now portray love true
Be forever mine, love will guide me and you
Dear, I won't mind, if forever, you're...
Forever mine

- instrumental -

Darling, forever mine, you will always be
That's a long, long time to be with me

My life really began the day I found you
From a man of clay I now portray love true
Be forever mine, love will guide me and you
Dear, I won't mind, if forever, you're...
Forever mine

No, I won't mind, if forever, you're...
Forever mine

      
Give Her All My Love (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5707)

If you see anything at all of my love
Be sure to give her all my love
And if at all you should fall under her spell
Be sure to give her all my love as well

If you hear anything at all of my love
Be sure to give her all my love
And if it appears that she's all you want near
Be sure to give her all my love with cheer

After all, she's the girl who made all my dreams come true
After love's fall, I now recall that some dreams turned blue

- instrumental -
 
If her kiss is at all as soft as moonlight above
Be sure to give her all my love
And if her eyes at all match the skies of blue thereof
Be sure to give her all my love

After all, she's the girl who made all my dreams come true
After love's fall, I now recall that some dreams turned blue

And if at all you should see white wedding doves
Be sure to give her all my love
And just because she's only all I'm still thinking of
Be sure to give her all my love

Be sure to give her all my love
      
Slender Return (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5708)

Her small hand in mine felt so slender
I gave her all the love my heart could render
I saved all my love for her, on that she would concur
But all the love she gave me in return was slender

I guess I didn't understand her gender
Although my love for her was always tender

My chances for her love are slender
Falling from my eyes, bitter tears now render
This letter that she sent me was meant to torment me
And for my heart to defend her is mighty slender

- instrumental -

I guess I didn't understand her gender
Although my love for her was always tender

Her small hand in mine felt so slender
I gave her all the love my heart could render
I saved all my love for her, on that she would concur
But all the love she gave me in return was slender

The love she gave me in return was slender
      
Miss Rosie (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5709)

Hello, but I'm sure you've got the wrong door
But now, I'm sure who those roses are for
Roses make for cheerful people
One that a heart aches to adore
Miss Rosie lives in cheerfulness next door

Miss Rosie gets so many roses, I'm impressed
She's always full of joy and happiness
Mosey on over, give Miss Rosie her roses
Miss Rosie lives in cheerfulness next door

The only person who would send roses to me
Left me alone and I know I'll see her no more
But I'm glad to see these roses
Because to me, it discloses
Miss Rosie lives in cheerfulness next door

- instrumental -

Miss Rosie gets so many roses, I'm impressed
She's always full of joy and happiness
Mosey on over, give Miss Rosie her roses
Miss Rosie lives in cheerfulness next door

Roses make for cheerful people
One that a heart aches to adore
The only person who would send roses to me
Left me alone and I know I'll see her no more

Mosey on over, give Miss Rosie her roses
Miss Rosie lives in cheerfulness next door
      
Hurtful Hands Of Time (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5710)

Now, some say that time acts as a healer
But in fact, for me, it's just a stealer
With hurtfulness in mind for hearts that are broken
And the hurtful hands of time have only spoken
Of more pain in my heart because of losing you

Now, the hurtful hands of time seem to be working
Because I'm still missing you all the time
Yes, the hurtful hands of time seem to be lurking
Because I have lost every dream of mine

I tried to close my eyes in sleep last night
It wouldn't have mattered if I'd been blind
I realize my future isn't bright
It's in the hands of hurtful hands of time

- instrumental -

Now, the hurtful hands of time seem to be working
Because I'm still missing you all the time
Yes, the hurtful hands of time seem to be lurking
Because I have lost every dream of mine

When I found love, I thought I'd climbed a mountain peak
I was ill-timed for love that, in time, proved too weak
Now I'm down in this deep valley of woe
And the hurtful hands of time won't let go

I'm clinging to a love on withered vines
And singing of the hurtful hands of time
      
Her Good Evening Was Her Leaving (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2008) (song#5711)

When she saw you, she smiled and said good evening
And her eyes were as bright as the stars above
When she shook your hand, I was a condemned man
I could see, both of you were too far in love

Her good evening was her leaving, yes, it's true
I saw by the look in her eyes, and I knew
Her good evening was her leaving, yes, it's true
Her good evening was her leaving me for you

Maybe it was just your handsome face she liked
At any rate, she replaced my face, bid adieu
And I knew that I might as well take a hike
Her good evening was her leaving me for you

- instrumental -

In a velvet twilight evening, I lost her
I saw the threat to love and now I'm so blue
My love has met its match, that I must concur
Her good evening was her leaving me for you

When she saw you, she smiled and said good evening
And her eyes were as bright as the stars above
When she shook your hand, I was a condemned man
I could see, both of you were too far in love

Her good evening was her leaving, yes, it's true
I saw by the look in her eyes, and I knew
Her good evening was her leaving, yes, it's true
Her good evening was her leaving me for you
      
I Don't Remember No More (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5712)

I don't remember no more
I don't recall all the pain
No more awaking at four
With my tears falling like rain

I never thought it could be
Something in time, I'd ignore
Oh, but now just look at me
I don't remember no more

Just because there was a time
My heart was about to die
When I found out I was without you
Oh, but now, I'm feeling fine
My heart has wings and can fly
It means I'm now over you

I don't remember no more
If you ever cared for me
But it don't matter no more
What matters is now I'm free

- instrumental -

Just because there was a time
My heart was about to die
When I found out I was without you
Oh, but now, I'm feeling fine
My heart has wings and can fly
It means I'm now over you

I don't remember no more
If you ever cared for me
But it don't matter no more
What matters is now I'm free

I never thought it could be
Something in time, I'd ignore
Oh, but now just look at me
I don't remember no more
      
Cowboy's Work Is Sorry Sorry Work (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5713)

A cowboy's work is sorry, sorry work
Though some city folks argue that it's fine
Brandin' longhorn cattle is sorry work
When a cowboy brands 'em for just a dime

Out on the cattle trail, he'll hear a roar
Ain't thunder, just old cookie up at four
Rattlin' pots 'n pans long before the day
It's just another sorry cowboy way

A cowboy's work is sorry, sorry work
Ridin' herd on dogies in bitter cold
And the big trail boss gits really irked
If asked about pannin' the stream for gold

- instrumental -

A cowboy's work is sorry, sorry work
Though some city folks argue that it's fine
Brandin' longhorn cattle is sorry work
When a cowboy brands 'em for just a dime

A cowboy's work is sorry, sorry work
I guess that's why I put it all on hold
On trails I used to roam, but now stay home
Sorry, but this old cowboy's gittin' old
      
Back Roads Of Sorrow (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5714)

I once had a sweetheart
So gentle, kind and true
She did her every part
She paid her sweetheart's due
I left her for another
To new loves I did stray
My heart's now in sorrow
On back roads til this day

Along back roads of sorrow I'm walking alone
I've left behind true friends I've known
Along back roads of sorrow I'm walking alone
Far from a sweetheart once my own
Along these back roads of sorrow
Like on a one way railroad track
Along back roads of sorrow with no turning back

- instrumental -

Wrote back to my sweetheart
Said I'd get down on my knees
To save my poor heart, please
She didn't want any part
Of a bad wayward breeze
She could not be appeased

Along back roads of sorrow I'm walking alone
I've left behind true friends I've known
Along back roads of sorrow I'm walking alone
Far from a sweetheart once my own
Along these back roads of sorrow
Like on a one way railroad track
Along back roads of sorrow with no turning back
      
I'll Guard My Heart For You (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5715)

Dear, I'll guard my heart for you
In regard for love that's true
Though it's so hard to wait while you're away
And I'll try to not be blue
While I'm here and missing you
Until I'm kissing you the same old way

The moon far up above
Knows you are my love
I know it shines up there just for me and you
Dear, I'll guard my heart for you
In regard for love that's true
My darling, I'll wait for you while you're away

- instrumental -

The moon far up above
Knows you are my love
I know it shines up there just for me and you
Dear, I'll guard my heart for you
In regard for love that's true
My darling, I'll wait for you while you're away
      
Pack Up The Pieces Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5716)

I see you've got me weeping once again
Well, this time I'll just take it on the chin
There ain't no more reasons to cry and moan
I'll just pack up the pieces of my heart
And go back home

By the seasons, I can see that winter's comin' on
All the spring and summer flowers have already gone
All of a sudden, I feel rotten, lonely and forgotten
I'll just pack up the pieces of my heart
And go back home

Someplace where you can't find me
Someplace where love can't bind me
Someplace where the pieces of my heart can feel at home

- instrumental -

By the seasons, I can see that winter's comin' on
All the spring and summer flowers have already gone
All of a sudden, I feel rotten, lonely and forgotten
I'll just pack up the pieces of my heart
And go back home

Someplace where you can't find me
Someplace where love can't bind me
Someplace where the pieces of my heart can feel at home
I'll just pack up the pieces of my heart
And go back home
      
In Each Small Way (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5717)

In each small way, my great big heart is missing you
In each small way, my great big heart is feeling blue
Darling, I can only say, please come back to stay
My great big heart still misses you in each small way

I wish my heart could forget that we ever met
I would start anew, but my heart loves only you
In each small way, my great big heart dreams night and day
In each small way, how to get you back home to stay

- instrumental -

In each small way, my great big heart still loves just you 
In each small way, my great big heart knows we are through
Each and every day, in each small way, my heart dies
In each small way, my great big heart for you still cries

In each small way, my great big heart is missing you
In each small way, my great big heart is feeling blue
Darling, I can only say, please come back to stay
My great big heart still misses you in each small way
      
Formula To Forget (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5718)

I'll be over you by the ending of this song
I've got a formula, wait and see, won't take long
First I'll tell myself that I'm not deep in regret
It's so easy with my formula to forget

I'll tell my heart that you never meant much to me
I don't need you any more, as any fool can see
Now, some formulas are kinda sleazy, but yet
It's so easy with my formula to forget

I'll tell my arms to find somebody new to hold
Someone just as warm as you before turning cold
My formula for success in finding new love
I'll suggest it to all the stars and moon above

- instrumental -

I'll tell my heart that you never meant much to me
I don't need you any more, as any fool can see
Now, some formulas are kinda sleazy, but yet
It's so easy with my formula to forget

I'll tell my eyes to dry, stop crying over you
I'll tell my shoes to stop walking the floor at two
This song is now over, but I'll have to admit
It's so hard with my formula to forget
      
My Love Is Gone (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5719)

Time is such a rolling thing
I wish I could make it stay
The time of love we shared would carry on
To another light of day
But here comes an early dawn
And dear, what more can I say
My love is gone

As I watch you walk away
I feel time slip from my hand
And as my hand shades my eyes from the sun
I know Old Man Time has won
Oh, I'll try to carry on
Loneliness has just begun
My love is gone

- instrumental -

Dear, if you knew how I feel
You might come back home to me
It's sad, for the love we had was so real
I can't believe you've withdrawn
Time is just a rolling wheel
My love is gone

I turn my back to the wind
No use trying anymore
I know that time will never let me win
My poor heart was just love's pawn
I've lost time and time again
My love is gone
      
Until Your Tears Turn to A Rose (Larry W. Jones 08/08/20080 (song#5720)

Dear, I can see dark rain clouds that pain you
Another love in some mem'ry lane grows
Darling, I'll be here with love to train you
Until your tears turn to a rose

My love, I can see your dreams are shattered
And it seems your heart can find no relief
Let me repair love that is now tattered
My darling, all you need is firm belief

In the dark of night when mem'ries arrive
Just dream of me during your sweet repose
Dear, I'll be there to help your dreams survive
Until your tears turn to a rose

- instrumental -

Dear, I can see dark rain clouds that pain you
Another love in some mem'ry lane grows
Darling, I'll be here with love to train you
Until your tears turn to a rose

In the dark of night when mem'ries arrive
Just dream of me during your sweet repose
Dear, I'll be there to help your dreams survive
Until your tears turn to a rose
      
Til I Two Step With You Again (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5721)

Til I two-step with you again
Don't let new cowboys hold your charms
My dreams of you won't turn out blue
If you dance in this cowboy's arms

Til I kiss your sweet lips again
Watch out for cowboys playing smart
Darling, when I return, you can
Do a two-step into my heart

Now, don't go break your heart or mine
When the clock says it's time to go
Til I two-step with you again
Remember that I love you so

Til I two-step with you again
Under these same old neon lights
Keep your promises that you made
Til I two-step with you that night

- instrumental -

Til I kiss your sweet lips again
Watch out for cowboys playing smart
Darling, when I return, you can
Do a two-step into my heart

Now, don't go break your heart or mine
When the clock says it's time to go
Til I two-step with you again
Remember that I love you so

Til I two-step with you again
Remember that I love you so
      
Til The Water Don't Flow In The Rio (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5722)

We got married in El Paso
Both of us exchanged golden rings
We settled down along the Rio
With old fashioned love, marriage brings
We toe the line to the right side of wrong
We know marriage was meant to be life long

We met at a small cantina in El Paso
Lonely wanderers in the night
That was many long years ago
And time has proved our love was right
There's something about our love you should know
Our love will grow and grow
Til the water don't flow in the Rio

Our love will grow and grow
Til the water don't flow in the Rio
The Rio Grande may overflow
Just like our overflowing love
Our love will grow and grow
Til the water don't flow in the Rio

- instrumental -

Dear, if I should ever leave you
It would be when the stars don't glow
Dear, don't let my words worry you
There's only one thing you should know
Our love will grow and grow
Til the water don't flow in the Rio

Our love will grow and grow
Til the water don't flow in the Rio
The Rio Grande may overflow
Just like our overflowing love
Our love will grow and grow
Til the water don't flow in the Rio

Our love will grow and grow
Til the water don't flow in the Rio
      
New Trails (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5723)

Trails, winding like a river
Trails, beckoning unto me
Saddle pals, who knows when we'll meet again
Maybe never
But trails
Trails, winding like a river
Beckon unto me

So long, my old saddle pals
Ride happy trails forever
So long, my old saddle pals
More trails beckon unto me
New trails
Trails, winding like a river
Beckon unto me

Til trails are gone forever
Gone forever
Til trails are gone forevermore

- instrumental -

So long, my old saddle pals
Ride happy trails forever
So long, my old saddle pals
Sun, moon and stars light up the trails for me
New trails
Trails, winding like a river
Beckon unto me

Til trails are gone forever
Gone forever
Til trails are gone forevermore
      
Tiny Troubles Grow Bigger In Time (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5724)

Tiny troubles grow bigger in time
That's why I'm feeling sadder with all the wine
Bigger troubles mean the honeymoon is over
That's why I'm feeling like I've lost you
For the very last time

Look at the silver moon
And golden sunset on the sea
Look at the tiny troubles
That grew bigger for you and me

Tiny troubles grow bigger in time
That's why I'm feeling sadder with all the wine
Bigger troubles mean the honeymoon is over
That's why I'm feeling like I've lost you
For the very last time

- instrumental -

Look back at yesterday
Now, take a look at us today
Look at the way we will miss each other
As love fades away

Tiny troubles grow bigger in time
That's why I'm feeling sadder with all the wine
Bigger troubles mean the honeymoon is over
That's why I'm feeling like I've lost you
For the very last time
      
Last Red Rose (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5725)

The last red rose in the garden
I saw there blooming so lonely
No other rose there of her kind
All petals had faded and gone

Her withered companions all hushed
No new rose buds to catch her eye
She wished for an orchid all blushed
The last red rose could only sigh

I could not leave that one last rose
In the garden to wilt therein
All of her consorts were sleeping
It was time, her sleep to begin

I sadly scattered her petals
Where all roses make their last bed
The last red rose in the garden
Now sleeps the deep sleep of the dead

I too, will soon, the rose follow
Among true friends of yesterday
As all life, time itself swallows
And loved ones fade swiftly away

True hearts, some day will lie withered
Like roses whose petals have flown
But then, I would rather not be
The last red rose in the garden alone
      
Yesterday's Teardrops (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2008) (song#5726)

Yesterday's teardrops are today's rainbows
Now that I have sunshine to share with you
You have now dried my eyes of yesterday's teardrops
With rainbows of love in a sky of blue

Oh, yesterday, love could not get started
Yesterday's teardrops had me downhearted
You came along and set my heart so free
And here's what I found out teardrops can be

Yesterday's teardrops are today's rainbows
Now that I have sunshine to share with you
You have now dried my eyes of yesterday's teardrops
With rainbows of love in a sky of blue

- instrumental -

Yesterday was filled with lonely sadness
But there's no tears today, only gladness
When you came into view dear, I could see
That yesterday's tears soon would never be

Yesterday's teardrops are today's rainbows
Now that I have sunshine to share with you
You have now dried my eyes of yesterday's teardrops
With rainbows of love in a sky of blue
      
Tom Dooley (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5727)

I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
But everything they say's a lie
I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
And I'm the guy who's gonna die

I didn't stab Laura Foster
I didn't take that sweet girl's life
Just blame it on sheriff Grason
For jealousy and vengeful strife

I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
But everything they say's a lie
I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
And I'm the guy who's gonna die

Tomorrow I'll be in Statesville
Jack Keaton's gonna be with me
Now, my life blood they're gonna spill
Jack Keaton's gonna be set free

I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
But everything they say's a lie
I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
And I'm the guy who's gonna die

Tomorrow I'll be in trouble
Miss Anne Melton won't marry me
I'll be swingin' in a knot doubled
Hangin' from a Carolina tree

I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
But everything they say's a lie
I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
And I'm the guy who's gonna die

I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
But everything they say's a lie
I'm the guy they call Tom Dooley
And I'm the guy who's gonna die
      
Tomorrow's Gonna Come (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5728)

Yesterday you told me that you love me
Today you tell me that you care
Well, tomorrow we'll be married
Dear, tomorrow we'll both be there

Tomorrow's gonna come
Tomorrow's gonna come
Well, tomorrow we'll be married
Tomorrow's gonna come

You don't know how long I've waited
Seems like a lifetime, love would hide
I'm glad, tomorrow, God created
Tomorrow you'll become my bride

Tomorrow's gonna come
Tomorrow's gonna come
Well, tomorrow we'll be married
Tomorrow's gonna come

- instrumental -

Tomorrow will end all weeping
Tomorrow, tears will be all gone
Our home sweet home we'll be keeping
When our tomorrow comes at dawn

Tomorrow's gonna come
Tomorrow's gonna come
Well, tomorrow we'll be married
Tomorrow's gonna come
      
Time Won't Stop For Teardrop Time (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5729)

Now, time won't stop for teardrop time
This time my song is out of rhyme
No, time won't stop for teardrop time
Where is that darlin' girl of mine

I guess she heard from her old flame
And like a bird, she hopped that train
She stopped lovin' this heart of mine
No, time won't stop for teardrop time

She stopped lovin' this heart of mine
No, time won't stop for teardrop time

- instrumental -

No, time won't stop for teardrop time
Heart's a victim of lovers crime
She hopped on outbound number nine 
No, time won't stop for teardrop time

I guess she heard from her old flame
And like a bird, she hopped that train
She stopped lovin' this heart of mine
No, time won't stop for teardrop time

She stopped lovin' this heart of mine
No, time won't stop for teardrop time
      
Lovesick From Now On (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5730)

If I'm a dog, just throw a bone
And beat me up with sticks and stones
She found a new click, now she's gone
Just call me lovesick from now on

Inside these walls I hide and cry
I kick the halls and want to die
I can't pick out just what went wrong
Just call me lovesick from now on

Inside my room I see more gloom
Outside my room there cries the moon
The clouds are dark and thick at dawn
Just call me lovesick from now on

- instrumental -

I recall mem'ries from the past
About true love that didn't last
The clock ticks midnight on and on
Just call me lovesick from now on

If I'm a dog, just throw a bone
And beat me up with sticks and stones
She found a new click, now she's gone
Just call me lovesick from now on
      
Out Of Touch (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5731)

Her sweet love meant so much to me
In dreams I feel her touch, so free 
All the time, her I'm thinking of
Just out of touch with the times of her sweet love

Every night I feel her warm touch
Never thought I'd miss her so much
Her voice was as soft as a dove
Just out of touch with the times of her sweet love

Now I'm so lonesome all the time
I have her photo, ring and such
They all remind me of her love
Just out of touch with the times of her sweet love

- instrumental -

Every night I feel her warm touch
Never thought I'd miss her so much
Her voice was as soft as a dove
Just out of touch with the times of her sweet love

Now I'm so lonesome all the time
I have her photo, ring and such
They all remind me of her love
Just out of touch with the times of her sweet love
      
Flaming Star (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5732)

From off afar, a falling star
Flamed across a velvet sky
Come what may, it brought to mind
The Gypsies say
A flaming star is only for a love that's blind

Soon I saw you, from off afar
Kissing someone else beneath the stars
My dreams fell from heaven, just before eleven
I believed I was your flame
You deceived me just the same
My dreams fell from heaven, just before eleven
The night a flaming star burned dreams of mine

- instrumental -

Soon I saw you, from off afar
Kissing someone else beneath the stars
My dreams fell from heaven, just before eleven
I believed I was your flame
You deceived me just the same
My dreams fell from heaven, just before eleven
The night a flaming star burned dreams of mine

From off afar, a falling star
Flamed across a velvet sky
Come what may, it brought to mind
The Gypsies say
A flaming star is only for a love that's blind
      
Long Before I Ever Met You (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5733)

Darling, I've never known you
I'm sure I've never met you
But I have known for so long
Someday, someway I would meet you somewhere

Darling, I've dreamed of someone
Who, one day, would stroll my way, my heart console
In every way, this I say, you fill that role

My darling, long before I ever held you
And long before I ever kissed you
Long before I ever met you, I have known
That someday, someway, dear, you would be my own

- instrumental -

My darling, long before I ever held you
And long before I ever kissed you
Long before I ever met you, I have known
That someday, someway, dear, you would be my own

Now, I finally met you
Now, I finally know you
Now, this very day, dear, you're my very own
      
Someone I Didn't Really Know (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5734)

I have a photo in my wallet
And it's kinda faded when I show
Now, when my friends and I discuss it
They ask, who's that doll with all the glow
And I say, don't make a fuss of it
Just someone I didn't really know

But she's the girl I spent a lot of time with
I followed her like a moth to flames that glow
And she's also the dream I nightly cry with
Just someone I didn't really know

Oh, she's the girl I couldn't get along with
And she's the girl that all my dreams went wrong with
I don't tell my friends there's no end to my woe
Dear, I only tell them that you're...
Just someone I didn't really know

- instrumental -

But she's the girl I spent a lot of time with

And she's the girl that all my dreams went wrong with
I don't tell my friends there's no end to my woe
Dear, I only tell them that you're...
Just someone I didn't really know
      
Trail To Nowhere Leading Home (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5735)

I thought I was on the trail to nowhere
I left the prairie for this northern town
But it sure gets cold here in the Winter
Like these folks are when Summer comes around
I thought I was on the trail to nowhere
But that pales when compared to all I've found

So, I've set my mind to see the sunlight
Shining on that trail to my prairie home
I'm tired of these blue Mondays through Sundays
Sittin' at a table in a bar alone
I'll say adios to this city guide
It just led me in every way that's wrong
I'll pack my bag and sack my foolish pride
And ride the trail to nowhere leading home

- instrumental -

I'm tired of these blue Mondays through Sundays
Sittin' at a table in a bar alone

Last Letter From Me (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5736)

Dear, I don't intend to treat you as only a friend
I have done nothing to make you so distant and cold
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever see you again
Now that you and I have both grown so withered and old

Dear, I never could have built you that mansion so fine
And I never could have bought you clothes a young girl craves
But if you'd been contented to be forever mine
Imagine the heartaches and sorrows you would have saved

- instrumental -

You have now grown weary and tired with that fool man's gold
As you read this letter, recall I was once your own
Don't bother responding, though I've had torment untold
It's too late for time spent here living my life alone

Dear, as you read this letter, think way back on our past
Of the vows and promises and dreams broken so free
Dear, to this cold world, I'll just say my goodbyes at last
For as you read this last letter from me, I won't be
      
Some Fool Like Me (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5737)

The last word in lonesome
Is some fool like me
I've seen some who thought
They were cool as can be
But my fool heart succumbed
To some tragedy
Somewhere when I fell, dear
For someone like you

Sometimes something bad happens
To some fools who are good
Sometimes something good happens
To some girls who are bad
I feel like some wise man
Wrote a song just about me
The last word in lonesome
Is some fool like me
 
- instrumental -

But my fool heart succumbed
To some tragedy
Somewhere when I fell, dear
For someone like you

Sometimes something bad happens
To some fools who are good
Sometimes something good happens
To some girls who are bad
I feel like some wise man wrote
A song just about me
The last word in lonesome
Is some fool like me
      
Just The Remaining Part Of Your Heart (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5738)

I heard you say tenderly
You love that man with all of your sweet heart
So dear, I guess there's no part left for me
But if he ever leaves you
And your tears become like a raining art
I'll see that you don't stay blue
I'll take the remaining part of your heart

Just the remaining part of your heart, dear
Which goes to show how much I want you near
Just the remaining part of your heart, dear
I'll give my every part for the remainder of your heart

- instrumental -

But if he ever leaves you
And your tears become like a raining art
I'll see that you don't stay blue
I'll take the remaining part of your heart

Just the remaining part of your heart, dear
Which goes to show how much I want you near
Just the remaining part of your heart, dear
I'll give my every part for the remainder of your heart
      
Ever So Slowly (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5739)

Dear, ever so slowly you're slipping away
Ever so slowly I forget you each day
I no longer cry when I think about you
Ever so slowly my skies are turning blue

Dear, it took forever to build my whole world
And you know my whole world was built around you
But when you left, my whole world quickly turned blue
Ever so slowly I'm forgetting 'bout you

Dear, don't be so fast in thinking I'll forgive
I'm learning at last how to love and to live
Ever so slowly my skies are turning blue
Ever so slowly I'm forgetting 'bout you

- instrumental -

Dear, it took forever to build my whole world
And you know my whole world was built around you
But when you left, my whole world quickly turned blue
Ever so slowly I'm forgetting 'bout you

Dear, don't be so fast in thinking I'll forgive
I'm learning at last how to love and to live
Ever so slowly my skies are turning blue
Ever so slowly I'm forgetting 'bout you
      
Act More Kindly (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5740)

I'm gonna act more kindly, 'stead of acting more blindly
To those who make mistakes when troubles come around their door
I'm gonna be much stronger for just a little longer
When I find it becomes a chore to think of others more

I'm gonna sing a melody, bring words of harmony
Meek doesn't mean that I am weak if love is what I speak
I'm gonna act more kindly, 'stead of acting more blindly
To my neighbors down the street or anyone I should meet

- instrumental -

I'm gonna be more gallant toward any with less talent
And quit thinking that I'm so grand when I'm a lowly man
I'm gonna be more humble toward those who fall and stumble
I need much less pride in a world where love needs to reside

I'm gonna act more kindly, 'stead of acting more blindly
To those who make mistakes when troubles come around their door
I'm gonna be much stronger for just a little longer
When I find it becomes a chore to think of others more
      
Let Love Come True (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2008) (song#5741)

I searched the wide world for you
My arms are unfurled for you
Darling, I beg you
Let love come true
Don't let my dreams all turn blue
Don't let love's bridges burn too
Darling, I beg you
Let love come true
 
Look at the stars with me, love
Tell me, what do you see, love
Something I've wished upon my whole life long

- instrumental -

Look at the stars with me, love
Tell me, what do you see, love
Something I've wished upon my whole life long
I've never been so lonely
Oh, how I need you only
Darling, I beg you
Let love come true

Darling, I beg you
Let love come true
      
So I Can Speak With You (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2008) (song#5742)

Just one more waltz, don't look at faults
So I can speak with you
Don't leave too fast, let this time last
Dear, let me dance with you
Let me dance cheek to cheek with you
My darling, that is my technique
So I can speak with you

Don't let the stars get in your eyes
Don't let guys in bars be too nice
Just one more waltz, don't look at faults
So I can speak with you tonight
Please fall in love, with moon above
So I can speak with you
About my plan, woman and man
That's all I seek from you

- instrumental -

Don't let the stars get in your eyes
Don't let guys in bars be too nice
Just one more waltz, don't look at faults
So I can speak with you tonight
Please fall in love, with moon above
So I can speak with you
About my plan, woman and man
That's all I seek from you

Please fall in love, with moon above
So I can speak with you
About my plan, woman and man
That's all I seek from you
      
Love Is Just An Ache In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2008) (song#5743)

Everybody's had an ache at one time or another
I had a head ache not so long ago
Everybody's had an ache in one way or another
You have to take it, that's just how it goes

But why do some loves last while mine are in the past
I made the mistake of not playing smart
If she came back, I'd have a bad back ache
Our love is dead and I've got a head ache
Love is nothing but an ache in my heart

Oh, there are others who have aches like mine
Toe aches, back aches and head aches all the time
I wonder how they feel when heartaches start
Love is nothing but an ache in my heart

- instrumental -

But why do some loves last while mine are in the past
I made the mistake of not playing smart
If she came back, I'd have a bad back ache
Our love is dead and I've got a head ache
Love is nothing but an ache in my heart

Oh man, I can't understand why it starts
I don't know if I can make it
I only know I can't fake it
I'm upset of late since she upset the cart 
Love is nothing but an ache in my heart
      
Your Love Is A Harbor For Me (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2008) (song#5744)

Dear, your love is a harbor for me
Yes, your love is a harbor for me
Whenever the cold rain is falling
Whenever the north wind is blowing
Like some dreadful bad storm out at sea
Dear, your love is a harbor for me

When life's worries come round
And snow flurries come down
Into the harbor of your love I run
You always guide me through
You know just what to do
Your love is my safe harbor and my sun

- instrumental -

When life's worries come round
And snow flurries come down
Into the harbor of your love I run
You always guide me through
You know just what to do
Your love is my safe harbor and my sun

Dear, your love is a harbor for me
Yes, your love is a harbor for me
      
Big Old Bunkhouse By The Stream (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2008) (song#5745)

It was a happy time, I know, not many years ago
When the cowboys used to gather on the scene
Played fiddle and guitar, made the prairie ring afar
In the big old bunkhouse by the stream

Well, we hung up the fiddles and guitars on the wall
She could not escape its throes, death came to claim my Rose
And I laid aside all of my cowboy dreams
She was the fairest flower the prairie ever grows
Rose was my dream at the big old bunkhouse by the stream

The trail's all grown over now that winds around the hill
The fence 'round the old corral is in decay
The prairie is now still, song for the sad whippoorwill
The big bunkhouse by the stream knows my dismay

Well, we hung up the fiddles and guitars on the wall
She could not escape its throes, death came to claim my Rose
And I laid aside all of my cowboy dreams
She was the fairest flower the prairie ever grows
Rose was my dream at the big old bunkhouse by the stream

The old chimney tumbed down, the boards have all turned brown
Of happy cowboy days, I can only dream
I hope One my life will keep as I lay me down to sleep
In the big old bunkhouse by the stream
      
Holding Onto Yesterday's Fling (Larry W. Jones 08/22/2008) (song#5746)

Oh, it almost seemed like old times
In sweet dreams last night, you were here
When I awoke, it didn't mean a thing
I knew just what was unfolding
I was holding onto yesterday's fling

In darkness I was all alone
So lonesome without you, my dear
The morning sun meant only one sad thing
Your sweet love you had withholding
I was holding onto yesterday's fling

Now that you're gone, I'm downhearted
Although my heart is still in love with you
A downhill run I've now started
Yesterday's love is done and we are through

- instrumental -

Now that you're gone, I'm downhearted
Although my heart is still in love with you
A downhill run I've now started
Yesterday's love is done and we are through

Life today just seems so empty
And of tomorrow, I don't care
Yesterday you were such a loving thing
What was gold is now cold, I swear
I was holding onto yesterday's fling
      
When I Saw The Rockies (Larry W. Jones 08/22/2008) (song#5747)

When I saw the Rockies
I knew what time was for
Some things were meant to last a lifetime
The Rockies were meant for eternity and more

Where mountains touch the sky
Brought wonder to my eye
Old John Denver's words all rang just right
When he sang about that Rocky Mountain high

When I saw the Rockies
I saw time standing still
The Rockies were there for me to climb
And I knew that for all time they always will

- instrumental -

Colorado has the sunshine
That warms the meadows, green and gold
A fine master of art divine
Made for all, landscapes to behold

When I saw the Rockies
I knew what time was for
Some things were meant to last a lifetime
The Rockies were meant for eternity and more

When I saw the Rockies
It was like nowhere I had been
When I saw the Rockies
I knew that I would come again
      
I Love To Hear The Rain (Larry W. Jones 08/22/2008) (song#5748)

I love to hear the rain
Falling softly on our windowpane
Dreams come easier of you and me
I love to hear the rain
Just one of those things hard to explain
Love comes easier for you and me

On some new day darling, as we're growing old
I'll remember to hold you the same old way
I love to hear the rain
And when we walk down that mem'ry lane
I will love you the same as I do today

- instrumental -

I love to hear the rain
When deep in the stillness of midnight
Or beside the fireplace burning warm
I love to hear the rain
Even if it's in the bright daylight
Love has no pain when safe from the storm

On some new day darling, as we're growing old
I'll remember to hold you the same old way
I love to hear the rain
And when we walk down that mem'ry lane
I will love you the same as I do today
      
Wishing I Wasn't Missing You (Larry W. Jones 08/22/2008) (song#5749)

The clock fell off the table to the floor
It must have been you I was reaching for
At four in the morning, I felt so blue
Wishing I wasn't missing you

Another blue Monday is on the way
I knew it would be a new lousy day
Another week I wish was through
Wishing I wasn't missing you

I wish I had a pair of rose colored glasses
Everything would look bright instead of dismal blue
But all I see as time itself passes
I'm just wishing I wasn't missing you

- instrumental -

Now it's Friday night without you in sight
I'm in the same old plight, it's nothing new
It's as black as night and I'm blue as blue
Wishing I wasn't missing you

I wish I had a pair of rose colored glasses
Everything would look bright instead of dismal blue
But all I see as time itself passes
I'm just wishing I wasn't missing you
      
Rolling Back To Texas (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5750)

I'm weary of this old town, no love here to feel
I'm weary of feeling down, life is too unreal
So I'll be rolling back before I die too young
To where real cowboys are and cowboy songs are sung

I'll be rolling back to Texas
Rolling back to Texas
I'm rolling back to Texas sand
Where western diamondbacks rattle
And cowboys herd longhorn cattle
I'm rolling back to Texas sand

I'll ride the range just for fun on the old Bar-1
With my pony, my saddle, lariat and gun
I'll look to the Texas sky, sorrows won't apply
And to this sad old town I'll bid a glad goodbye

I'll be rolling back to Texas
Rolling back to Texas
I'm rolling back to Texas sand
Where western diamondbacks rattle
And cowboys herd longhorn cattle
I'm rolling back to Texas sand

I've saved a little money, for a little wife
One to pal around with for the rest of my life
She'll be at home on the range with our cowboy child
When the bluebonnets in the spring are growing wild

I'll be rolling back to Texas
Rolling back to Texas
I'm rolling back to Texas sand
Where western diamondbacks rattle
And cowboys herd longhorn cattle
I'm rolling back to Texas sand

I'll strum my old guitar at the end of the day
Singing all those cowboy songs that send cares away
Songs about the prairie and the blue Texas skies
And stars in the heavens like she'll have in her eyes

I'll be rolling back to Texas
Rolling back to Texas
I'm rolling back to Texas sand
Where western diamondbacks rattle
And cowboys herd longhorn cattle
I'm rolling back to Texas sand
      
Never Did I Ever Stop Loving You (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5751)

The lonely nights I spent were all too long
A man wasn't meant to be so alone
But never did I ever stop loving you
Your love was just a token, vows broken
My dreams had flown into the great unknown
But never did I ever stop loving you

Dear, I guess I just kept on believing
That our past love would somehow start anew
And never did I ever stop loving you
And that day, my darling, when you returned
Our love grew much stronger from lessons learned
Cause never did I ever stop loving you

- instrumental -

Dear, I never looked for another love
For I would rather do without a love
And never did I ever stop loving you
I waited for some bright star to guide you
Until I could have you here beside me
And never did I ever stop loving you

Dear, I guess I just kept on believing
That our past love would somehow start anew
And never did I ever stop loving you
And that day, my darling, when you returned
Our love grew much stronger from lessons learned
Cause never did I ever stop loving you
      
Wrong Right Of Way (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5752)

Dear, you love someone new, you say
So, what am I supposed to do
I'll yield to your wrong right of way
Dear, we must part ways now, you say
Well, my direction comes from you
I'll yield to your wrong right of way

I have loved you too much to now lose you
But what am I supposed to do today
What once was sealed is now rent in two
I'll yield to your wrong right of way

Dear, I once was never blue, ever loving you
But tomorrow you'll be gone far away
You know it's wrong to treat me like you do
But darling, I won't stand here in your way

- instrumental -

Dear, I once was never blue, ever loving you
But tomorrow you'll be gone far away
You know it's wrong to treat me like you do
But darling, I won't stand here in your way

I have loved you too much to now lose you
But what am I supposed to do today
What once was sealed is now rent in two
I'll yield to your wrong right of way
      
Your Texas Cowboy (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5753)

You say it's gratifying
To be satisfying your Texas cowboy
His simple cowboy ways have brought you joy
You cook him three square meals, cause that appeals
Well darlin', I'm ridin' happy trails
Just knowin' I'm your Texas cowboy

You tell him he's a buckeroo
And it's a treasure to be in his arms
You love his warm and kindly
Kinda manly charms employed
Oh, he has no claim to fame
But you love him just the same
Well darlin', I'm ridin' happy trails
Just knowin' I'm your Texas cowboy

- instrumental -

You tell him he's a buckeroo
And it's a treasure to be in his arms
You love his warm and kindly
Kinda manly charms employed

You say that he had his choice of cowgirls
But he chose only you
And he takes you to the big barn dances you enjoy
He gives you lots of glances
With his looks of love sincere
Well darlin', I'm ridin' happy trails
Just knowin' I'm your Texas cowboy

Yes darlin', I'm ridin' happy trails
Just knowin' I'm your Texas cowboy
      
This Masquerade We Made (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5754)

I can see that you're not happy, dear
In this game we both have played
Words don't mean a thing if they're not clear
Love was wasted in this masquerade we made

We have seen our dreams fade and both have paid
From losing the love we had at the start
This masquerade we made is now a part
Of lonely games of promises betrayed

But any thought of leaving disappears
When I see the tears in your eyes
I know that mine are also on parade
I don't know why we carry on
When everything we knew is gone
Love was wasted in this masquerade we made

- instrumental -

We have seen our dreams fade and both have paid
From losing the love we had at the start
This masquerade we made is now a part
Of lonely games of promises betrayed

But any thought of leaving disappears
When I see the tears in your eyes
I know that mine are also on parade
I don't know why we carry on
When everything we knew is gone
Love was wasted in this masquerade we made
      
Til I Get Through With Losing You (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5755)

It will take awhile until I can smile
I may be a pain in the neck to you, a vex to you
Even try to be next to you, though not in style
Time itself will never end when I'll need a friend
Though I don't mean much to you
I'll still keep in touch with you
Til I get through with losing you

Don't think anything if your phone should ring
Dear, I'm still just a puppet on your string
Now, you may think I have no pride at all
I'll try to smile, but inside, tears will fall
Although my dreams end with you
I will still depend on you
Til I get through with losing you

- instrumental -

Maybe someday I'll see the light
And someway things may work out right
Although you're out of sight from me
It's so confusing to be using you
But it's something I can't stop refusing to
Til I get through with losing you

Time itself will never end when I'll need a friend
Though I don't mean much to you
I'll still keep in touch with you
Til I get through with losing you
      
When The Cowboy Gathering Closes  (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5756)

There's a song on the wide open prairie
Every cowboy has heard it with a sigh
Over old cattle trails, that echo still prevails
When the cowboy gathering closes with goodbye

We were gathered up in Elko, Nevada in the spring
Cowboys and cowgirls from Fort Worth to Durango
And everywhere between
Tall tales and lies and clear blue skies
Chuckwagon breakfasts, horse shoes, good old country swing
A cowboy thing each year, and a tear fills my eye
When the cowboy gathering closes with goodbye

Old Red Steagall was there, and R.W. Hampton too
Don Edwards played his guitar and sang a ballad or two
Riders In The Sky stopped by with songs of the sage
And rodeo games were played by cowboys of every age

Dinner bells ring in Elko merrily
At cowboy gatherings each early spring
Save me a place in Elko where cowboys are king
Come along and you'll understand why eyes are never dry
When the cowboy gathering closes with goodbye

There's a song on the wide open prairie
Every cowboy has heard it with a sigh
Over old cattle trails, that echo still prevails
When the cowboy gathering closes with goodbye
      
I Had A Meeting With Myself (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5757)

Well, I had a meeting with myself
I told myself to be ready for your leaving
But I was only cheating myself
Cause it was selfish to think I'd not be grieving
I had to get myself ready for my big fall

Yes, I had a meeting with myself
I told myself that I could make it on my own
But I was only cheating myself
Because I knew that you would already be gone
It was like I didn't meet with myself at all

I have this fleeting sensation of having lived and died
When those memories of you come to call
Yes, I had a meeting with myself, but I lied
It was like I didn't meet with myself at all

- instrumental -

Yes, I had a meeting with myself
I told myself that I could make it on my own
But I was only cheating myself
Because I knew that you would already be gone

I have this fleeting sensation of having lived and died
When those memories of you come to call
Yes, I had a meeting with myself, but I lied
It was like I didn't meet with myself at all
      
Teardrop Falling Time (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5758)

Sad chimes have rung for teardrop falling time
This time it's gonna be an uphill climb
Happiness is gone, I've been left behind
Get ready eyes, for teardrop falling time

I learned that her old flame is back in town
I didn't know that he was calling 'round
There's no more stalling for this lovers crime
Move over heart, for teardrop falling time

- instrumental -

Happiness is gone, I've been left behind
Get ready eyes, for teardrop falling time

I learned that her old flame is back in town
I didn't know that he was calling 'round
There's no more stalling for this lovers crime
Move over heart, for teardrop falling time

Move over heart, for teardrop falling time
      
Don't Call Me The Heartless One (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5759)

Well now, I used to be the heartless one
Never thinking of the harm I had done
But you changed cold, cold rain into the sun
From now on, don't call me the heartless one

Walls were built around me in which to hide
My heart never cared when old love flames died
You came along and my walls came undone
From now on, don't call me the heartless one

I used to walk the wood floors of my room
Should have known my hard heart would meet with gloom
But your knock on my door had my heart won
From now on, don't call me the heartless one

- instrumental -

Walls were built around me in which to hide
My heart never cared when old love flames died
You came along and my walls came undone
From now on, don't call me the heartless one

Freed of hard hearted memories at last
What started then is in the distant past
A brand new life of love has just begun
From now on, don't call me the heartless one
      
Love's Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5760)

The time has come to leave, though we'll both cry
Love has no value when it's filled with tears
The wings of love have flown with love's goodbye
That's the way love goes with those wasted years

Love's hello never tells of division
And a young heart's flame can burn perception
But time can hold one up to derision
When hearts are subjected to deception

Time has slapped our love fully in the face
And no consolation can I now find
So, I'll just leave now, although in disgrace
And live with love's goodbye I leave behind

- instrumental -

Love's hello never tells of division
And a young heart's flame can burn perception
But time can hold one up to derision
When hearts are subjected to deception

The time has come to leave, though we'll both cry
Love has no value when it's filled with tears
The wings of love have flown with love's goodbye
That's the way love goes with those wasted years

The wings of love have flown with love's goodbye
That's the way love goes with those wasted years
      
A Lovers Moon Is On The Rise (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2008) (song#5761)

Well now, don't you think it's funny
When the night's in sync with sunny
Bees are busy in hives makin' honey
I guess it comes as no surprise
A lovers moon is on the rise

Well, I'm loaded with ambition
Got a sunny disposition
And all I need now is love's ignition
And starlight of love in her eyes
A lovers moon is on the rise

Now, I'll just take my time this time
To try and win her love so fine
She's been on my mind as the full moon climbs
My intentions have no disguise
A lovers moon is on the rise

- instrumental -

Now, I do think moonlight is grand
And I think I'm her lovin' man
So, it's time now, to make my stand real soon
The moonlight is made for pleasin'
My darlin' is made for squeezin'
When there comes the rise of a lovers moon

Well, I'm loaded with ambition
Got a sunny disposition
And all I need now is love's ignition
And starlight of love in her eyes
A lovers moon is on the rise
      
He Wore Silver Spurs (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5762)

Yippee yi oh, yippee yi aye
There ain't gonna be no weddin' today

He wore silver spurs that jingled, jangled, jingled
As he went ridin' leisurely along
The cowboy sang about how glad he was single
And be danged if he wasn't far from wrong

Well, Bonnie Sue
Well, Bonnie Sue
Although that cowboy's done some hard fallin'
He ain't never gonna fall for you

Yippee yi oh, yippee yi aye
There ain't gonna be no weddin' today

He wore silver spurs that jingled, jangled, jingled
As he went ridin' leisurely along
The cowboy sang about how glad he was single
And be danged if he wasn't far from wrong

- instrumental -

Well, Molly Ann
Well, Molly Ann
Although that cowboy's plumb full of folly
He ain't never gonna fall again

Yippee yi oh, yippee yi aye
There ain't gonna be no weddin' today

He wore silver spurs that jingled, jangled, jingled
As he went ridin' leisurely along
The cowboy sang about how glad he was single
And be danged if he wasn't far from wrong

Yippee yi oh, yippee yi aye
There ain't gonna be no weddin' today

The cowboy with the silver spurs
Jingled, jangled, jingled right along
      
Old Rodeo Teachers In The Bleachers (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5763)

We're just old rodeo teachers in the bleachers
With walkin' canes, we ain't the same as long ago
Watchin' young'uns ridin' broncos in the rodeo
We wonder how they all will fare when they grow old

The broncos they're on couldn't buck if they were paid
They're better drivin' trucks cause they're not cowboy made
I used to ride a gelding by the name of Figure Four
Until he propelled me, after eight, right on out the door

Now, their saddles have bucking rolls to keep 'em in
The saddle tree is straddle free to save their skin
The kind I used only had a Cheyenne roll at the canter
Had to hang on tight or become a rodeo planter

Steers for doggin' have ears floppin' and horns cut short
Catch-twine for tyin' the feet are designed for sport
I ain't lyin', I went flyin' over longhorns heads
But I'm a rodeo teacher in the bleachers nearly dead

These young'uns now-a-days wear fancy western suits
I rode in wind-tight moleskins and worn Nacona boots
But our glory days are gone, it's time for movin' on
We're just old rodeo teachers in the bleachers
Still singin' our old cowboy songs
      
No One To Lean On (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5764)

No one to lean on, no one to be keen on
No one to make my dreams come true
No lips to kiss on, just to reminisce on
No one to miss me when I'm blue

I climb the stairs up to my lonely room
Only to find you're not there in the gloom
And every time I think of you somewhere
I offer up for myself one small prayer
Please give me someone to lean on
Just someone I can be keen on
Sweet lips to kiss on, not reminisce on
Someone who'll make my dreams come true

- instrumental -

I climb the stairs up to my lonely room
Only to find you're not there in the gloom
And every time I think of you somewhere
I offer up for myself one small prayer
Please give me someone to lean on
Just someone I can be keen on
Sweet lips to kiss on, not reminisce on
Someone who'll make my dreams come true
      
Where Love Has Gone (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5765)

The blazing sun burned the dew off the meadow
It's as dry as your love that's withdrawn
The petals on the flowers all have withered
Faded now to where our love has gone

Where do the bubbles go when champagne grows stale
And foaming laughter departs the sea
Where will I go now that hearts of love have failed
To that place where love was never meant to be

Your love disappeared like dew from the meadow
It should be as fresh as dew at dawn
How my heart will find love, I'll never know
In that place of no return where love has gone

- instrumental -

Where do the bubbles go when champagne grows stale
And foaming laughter departs the sea
Where will I go now that hearts of love have failed
To that place where love was never meant to be

Your love disappeared like dew from the meadow
It should be as fresh as dew at dawn
How my heart will find love, I'll never know
In that place of no return where love has gone
      
My Treasured Possession (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5766)

Here comes my treasured possession
Here comes my everything

I hear her whisper so softly
From lips of the one I adore
Darling, I will love you only
Not today, but for evermore

As new pages of years turn slowly forward
I'll look back on the times we both shared before
I'll see the love that kept us close together
And look forward to the same and many more

Here comes my reason for living
Here comes the one I esteem
Here comes my treasured possession
Here comes my everything

- instrumental -

As new pages of years turn slowly forward
I'll look back on the times we both shared before
I'll see the love that kept us close together
And look forward to the same and many more

Here comes my reason for living
Here comes the one I esteem
Here comes my treasured possession
Here comes my everything
      
At The Door Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5767)

I opened wide the door of my heart, dear
I waited with hope of changing your name
Your love was at the door of my heart, dear
Oh, but for some reason, you never came

My arms had a feeling of surrender
Of you, as I held you close by my side
Your love was at the door of my heart, dear
But you never came on in to reside
No, you never came on in to reside

Some other fellow must have found the key
And how was I to know love would depart
It was such a long long wait for me, dear
For your sweet love at the door of my heart
For your sweet love at the door of my heart

- instrumental -

Some other fellow must have found the key
And how was I to know love would depart
It was such a long long wait for me, dear
For your sweet love at the door of my heart
For your sweet love at the door of my heart
      
Tomorrow I'll Start Loving You Again (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5768)

Tomorrow I'll start loving you again
Then I'll be right back, be right back again
Tomorrow I'll be right back
Back where I've already been

Well dear, I thought that I was over you
Cause I felt that my heart was on the mend
But today I felt mem'ries burn anew
Tomorrow I'll start loving you again

I know it was foolish to think my love for you had died
Although I'm now on the brink of a million tears I've cried
Well, I should have known yesterday that tomorrow would come
Tomorrow I'll start loving you again

- instrumental -

Tomorrow I'll start loving you again
Then I'll be right back, be right back again
Tomorrow I'll be right back
Back where I've already been

Well dear, I thought that I was over you
Cause I felt that my heart was on the mend
But today I felt mem'ries burn anew
Tomorrow I'll start loving you again

Tomorrow I'll start loving you again
      
Too Much Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5769)

Dear, now you've gone and broken my poor heart
When you told me that you and I must part
Well, last night I was really feeling blue
Cause too much of my heart can't break apart from you

I closed my eyes, but dear, I still could see
That deep inside you're still a part of me
Dear, it may not be smart, but it's so true
That too much of my heart can't break apart from you

Too much of you still owns too much of me
I've known it ever since you set me free
You're still a work of art and I'm so blue
Cause too much of my heart can't break apart from you
 
- instrumental -

I closed my eyes, but dear, I still could see
That deep inside you're still a part of me

Too much of you still owns too much of me
I've known it ever since you set me free
You're still a work of art and I'm so blue
Cause too much of my heart can't break apart from you
      
Touch Her (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5770)

Touch her
Touch the girl who meant the world to this man
Touch her
Touch her and see if you can understand

Touch her
But you still won't know what to say or do
Touch her
And you'll feel how it feels when love's untrue

- instrumental -

Watch her
Watch her eyes that will tell you all those lies
Watch her
And be glad that I told you about her disguise

Touch her
Get a good feel before you get the blues
Touch her
But take my word, your broken heart will lose

Touch her
Get a good feel before you get the blues
Touch her
But take my word, your broken heart will lose
      
My Queen My Lady And Dream Angel (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2008) (song#5771)

You're a dream, you're an angel, I'm a man
You're a queen, you're a lady, take my hand
We'll find some place to live with love we plan
Please be my queen, my lady and dream angel if you can

We're from different worlds, but I love you so
Let's laugh and play cause love will surely grow
My heart was blue but it's new now, I know
Please be my queen, my lady and dream angel here below

I won't ask you why, I won't ask you how
But dear, I'll ask you to love me forever starting now

- instrumental -

Let love be forever, without an end
Like an oak that stands strong against the wind
Someone like you will never come my way again
Please be my queen, my lady and dream angel, be my friend
 
I won't ask you why, I won't ask you how
But dear, I'll ask you to love me forever starting now

You're a dream, you're an angel, I'm a man
You're a queen, you're a lady, take my hand
We'll find some place to live with love we plan
Please be my queen, my lady and dream angel if you can
      
Only Way I Know To Endure (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5772)

I still keep your picture on the table
Your face still draws me to you like a lure
I should throw it away but I'm not able
It's the only way I know to endure

My friends are all gone but I carry on
Now, just how I do, I'm not really sure
The future looks black while I'm looking back
It's the only way I know to endure

- instrumental -

When my heart gives up, I open your letters up
They give a small cure, though tears make the words obscure
This old masquerade won't last, living in the past
It's the only way I know to endure

My friends are all gone but I carry on
Now, just how I do, I'm not really sure
The future looks black while I'm looking back
It's the only way I know to endure
      
Riding Down The Canyon Trail (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5773)

When all the brandin' work is over
In the big corral around five
I'm rarin' to look the prairie over
Where a cowboy can feel alive
I cinch the saddle on my pony
Head down the trail away from town
To some place that's quiet and lonely
And watch the western sun go down

Just riding down the canyon trail
To watch the western sun go down
Waiting to see the moon so pale
Shine on the prairie grass so brown
Hear the longhorn cattle lowing
And the call of the whippoorwill
Just riding down the canyon trail
All cowboys dream about it still

- instrumental -

Hear the longhorn cattle lowing
And the call of the whippoorwill
Just riding down the canyon trail
All cowboys dream about it still

The cool purple sage is bloomin'
Cactus flowers are everywhere
The red setting sun is looming
Out here a cowboy has no care
Just riding down the canyon trail
There's no reason to wear a frown
Just riding down the canyon trail
To watch the western sun go down
      
Til Life Loses Meaning (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5774)

Til life loses meaning, I'll keep on loving you

Now, the lowest point I've ever been in my life
I was so disappointed, I wanted to die
Was the night I found out that you loved someone else
Dear, that's the night you said, our love, I should forget
Til life loses meaning, I'll keep on loving you

Now, you can tell all the roses they should not grow
And you can tell the four winds they never should blow
You can tell all the storm clouds to never get wet
But I'll tell you dear, my heart can never forget
Til life loses meaning, I'll keep on loving you

- instrumental -

Now, you can tell all the roses they should not grow
And you can tell the four winds they never should blow
You can tell all the storm clouds to never get wet
But I'll tell you dear, my heart can never forget
Til life loses meaning, I'll keep on loving you
      
Mary's Summer Love (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5775)

I know I'm only Mary's summer love
She seems to only come around now and then
I know I'm only Mary's summer love
She's only mine when summer comes again

When Autumn comes, I know she'll be leavin'
Another love will come to let me down
But she knows I'll wait for summer season
When summer sunshine brings her back around

I know I'm only Mary's summer love
She seems to only come around now and then
I know I'm only Mary's summer love
She's only mine when summer comes again

- instrumental -

When winter comes, my world's cold and stormy
Cause darling Mary never comes around
My empty arms, for her are there waiting
Waiting in vain til summer comes around

I know I'm only Mary's summer love
She seems to only come around now and then
I know I'm only Mary's summer love
She's only mine when summer comes again
      
Yodeling Old Hobo (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5776)

Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee, Yodel-ee-oh-lo
Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee-hee, down the road I go

Thumbing on down the highway, just travelin' light
Don't care where I'm headin' to, anywhere's alright
I don't have no money, no special place to go
All the town folks just call me a yodeling old hobo

Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee, Yodel-ee-oh-lo
Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee-hee, down the road I go

Well, I've seen all this country, been most everywhere
But places I love most are in sweet Texas air
Way out where the west is best, in old El Paso
I'm at home with all I own, this yodeling old hobo

Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee, Yodel-ee-oh-lo
Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee-hee, down the road I go

I started young as a trav'lin' man, Georgia bound
I'm the son of all the land, anywhere I'm found
East or west, north or south, any way the wind blows
You'll find me along the tracks, a yodeling old hobo

Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee, Yodel-ee-oh-lo
Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee-hee, down the road I go
 
I've got lots of stories, and more will come my way
Hear that lonesome sound of an outbound Frisco freight
I'll hop aboard with my old pals before midnight
Ride tracks with my sack, yodeling old hobo til I die

Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee, Yodel-ee-oh-lo
Yodel-ee-oh-lay-ee-hee, down the road I go
      
Moo Moo Boogie (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5777)

Out on the trail near El Paso
I seen a cowboy ridin' along real slow
Now, I don't believe I heard him wrong
But I perceived him singin' a funny song
It was really witty, musta come from the windy city
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yay, yippie yea
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yea

Git along little doggies, git along, git along
Crack a whip, get a grip, let 'er rip to the doggie sale
And he punched them doggies on down the trail
Just a-singin' his Moo Moo Boogie with a western wail
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yay, yippie yea
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yea

He was singin' his Moo Moo Boogie song
As he rode along the gulch, didn't sound like much
Just a little ditty with the windy city touch
It sounded like he was on loco weed
A funny singin' cowboy in real need
And he punched them doggies on down the trail
Just a-singin' his Moo Moo Boogie with a western wail
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yay, yippie yea
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yea

- instrumental -

Git along little doggies, git along, git along
Crack a whip, get a grip, let 'er rip to the doggie sale
And he punched them doggies on down the trail
Just a-singin' his Moo Moo Boogie with a western wail
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yay, yippie yea
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yea

Git along little doggies, git along, git along
Crack a whip, get a grip, let 'er rip to the doggie sale
And he punched them doggies on down the trail
Just a-singin' his Moo Moo Boogie with a western wail
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yay, yippie yea
Come-a ti yi yipee yipee yea

Moo Moo Boogie
Moo Moo Boogie
Moo Moo Boogie with a western wail
      
Only Time Can Tell (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5778)

Now, darling, only time can tell
If our romance will work out well
Or become just an ebbing swell
Nobody knows and only time can tell

Dear, you and I know very well
That nothing is sure when it comes to love
And darling, only time can tell
If it grows with the stars and moon above

But if we really show we care
Then, in time, both of us will see
That true love really can be there
Waiting to grow for you and me

When summer is over and autumn comes
Maybe we'll be more than just friends and chums
And if, in time, we find that love still dwells
We'll buy some rings, but only time can tell

- instrumental -

But if we really show we care
Then, in time, both of us will see
That true love really can be there
Waiting to grow for you and me

When summer is over and autumn comes
Maybe we'll be more than just friends and chums
And if, in time, we find that love still dwells
We'll buy some rings, but only time can tell

Only time can tell
      
Time And The Trail (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5779)

Time and the trail, of the whippoorwill
Will bring my love ridin' o'er the hill
If it must be, I'll wait eternally
By the trail that took her away from me

Along the prairie trail, we used to ride
But time and the trail took her from my side
She was my love, to be my darlin' bride
But time and the trail was the Great Divide

Oh, how long must a cowboy be lonely
Ridin' along, dreamin' of his one and only
Under western stars and the pale moonlight
Time and the trail, please bring her home tonight

- instrumental -

Along the prairie trail, we used to ride
But time and the trail took her from my side
She was my love, to be my darlin' bride
But time and the trail was the Great Divide

Time and the trail, both go slowly along
Time and the trail, a lowly cowboy song
My heart may fail, but I'll wait as time rolls along
Til time and the trail brings my darlin' home
      
Weary Of Me (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5780)

You ended the rain, you ended my pain
You put wind in my sails so fair
Then winter came and my dreams were in vain
You left me alone with my cares

Weary of me, are you weary of me
There's nothing cheery that you have to say
Like a toy balloon, thrown away to soon
Loved and wearily cast away

You've found someone new and I've found the blues
But I hope that happy you'll always be
Dearie, I love you still, I always will
Though you have grown weary of me

I believed you, dear, and so I have stayed
You have always been my sweetheart
Darling, I never thought our love would fade
And I would wear a weary heart

- instrumental -

Weary of me, are you weary of me
There's nothing cheery that you have to say
Like a toy balloon, thrown away to soon
Loved and wearily cast away

You've found someone new and I've found the blues
But I hope that happy you'll always be
Dearie, I love you still, I always will
Though you have grown weary of me
      
At The Back Of Tobacco Road (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5781)

Well, I was born in the trunk of a Georgia hoopie
Mama didn't live, Daddy was a drunk, I was told
That's the life, on my back bestowed to me
Way down at the back of Tobacco Road

I grew up dusty in a rusty shack
Wore used overalls on my crusty back
Nobody helped me, I carried a load
Way down at the back of Tobacco Road

Plowin' land was hard but that was the code
I didn't know no better, but nobody owed
Well, I loved the land and I guess it showed
Way down at the back of Tobacco Road

- instrumental -

Sometimes I want to leave and get a good job
But nobody in the city hires a hillbilly slob
Oh, I'll never get a crack at a new house showed
Way down at the back of Tobacco Road

Now, if I had the money and I had the time
I'd ride the outbound main on out the Georgia line
But now, to me, it's plain that my back will stay bowed
Way down at the back of Tobacco Road

Way down at the back of Tobacco Road
      
Joys Of Yesterday (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2008) (song#5782)

Yesterday, the blossom still clung to the vine
I tasted strawberries, I drank her sweet wine
I dreamed of tomorrows, but they passed away
The joys that were mine are in yesterday

I was a dandy and I was a rover
She knew who I was by the songs that I sang
I ate at her table, I basked in her clover
My cries and my laughter all rang

Yesterday, the blossom still clung to the vine
I tasted strawberries, I drank her sweet wine
I dreamed of tomorrows, but they passed away
The joys that were mine are in yesterday

- instrumental -

I was not contented with yesterday's glories
I could not live on promises winter to spring
Yesterday was my moment, that is my story
I never cared what tomorrow might bring

Yesterday, the blossom still clung to the vine
I tasted strawberries, I drank her sweet wine
I dreamed of tomorrows, but they passed away
The joys that were mine are in yesterday
      
This Trail Is Mine (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2008) (song#5783)

The eastern sun arose this morning
From out in the west I watched it rise
A trail of beauty appeared from the darkness
A trail that cowboys would often ride

My thoughts seemed small and unimportant
Unlike all my troubles seemed to be
But today, a brand new trail I see
One I would ride to eternity

The prairie was asleep around me
But as it awoke to meet the day
I reveled in its silent beauty
This cowboy had nothing more to say

So what, saddle pals, if all our dreams
Never come to be realized
Pardners, awake and look around you
You've got a brand new trail to ride

This trail is mine, this trail is mine
Not the trail of the whippoorwill
His song's too sad to shine
This trail is mine, mine alone to fulfill
I'll ride this brand new trail and learn to live
So I can tell the sun I've learned to give
This trail is mine

- instrumental -

Like most cowboys, I cursed each bad day
And I never had much peace of mind
I rode life's trail never thinking of tomorrow
Not an inkling of a sweeter time

But now the sun has shone around me
What a foolish cowboy I have been
This brand new trail stretched out before me
Is the same old trail I did not tend

This trail is mine, this trail is mine
Not the trail of the whippoorwill
His song's too sad to shine
This trail is mine, mine alone to fulfill
I'll ride this brand new trail and learn to live
So I can tell the sun I've learned to give
This trail is mine
      
Yesterday Has Come And Gone (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2008) (song#5784)

Yesterday, you said you loved me
Oh, yesterday you seemed to care
Our yesterday was like a song
Now I can't find you anywhere

Oh, yesterday has come and gone
Dear, yesterday has come and gone
Yesterday, you said you loved me
But yesterday has come and gone

Many months dear, I have waited
Many sad nights have heard my cry
Hoping that dreams of yesterday
Would today be here by my side

Oh, yesterday has come and gone
Dear, yesterday has come and gone
Yesterday, you said you loved me
But yesterday has come and gone

- instrumental -

So, today dear, I'll be leaving
Cause yesterday has come and gone
Tomorrow will find me grieving
Oh, yesterday has come and gone

Oh, yesterday has come and gone
Dear, yesterday has come and gone
Yesterday, you said you loved me
But yesterday has come and gone
      
I Picked Her Up On Her Way Down (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2008) (song#5785)

Oh, she was mine for just awhile
Til she was puttin' on the style
She never wanted to look back
At our poor home across the tracks
She was the gossip of the town
But she knew my heart could be found
Right where she tossed it on the ground
I picked her up on her way down

I picked her up on her way down
She was so blue and all alone
Her glamour began to bore them
And now she's back where she belongs
Oh, she became their pride and joy
But they soon found another toy
They took away her phony crown
I picked her up on her way down

- instrumental -

They went and changed her attitude
And made her haughty and so rude
Her new found friends she now can blame
Underneath she was still the same
She learned that all I said was true
True love was waiting here, she knew
Like Jill, she tumbled to the ground
I picked her up on her way down

I picked her up on her way down
She was so blue and all alone
Her glamour began to bore them
And now she's back where she belongs
Oh, she became their pride and joy
But they soon found another toy
They took away her phony crown
I picked her up on her way down
      
Swiftly I'm Falling  (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2008) (song#5786)

Swiftly I'm falling fast in love with you
And swiftly I'm losing a heart that once was blue
I can't hide emotion and devotion so true
Swiftly I'm falling fast in love with you

More and more I'm believing I need you by my side
And less and less I'm grieving as each day passes by
Darling, believe me, at last a dream is now in view
Swiftly I'm falling fast in love with you

Before you came, it seemed that time moved slowly by
I was quickly losing faith that love would arrive
But then I saw you and my heart knew one thing true
Swiftly I'm falling fast in love with you

- instrumental -

Swiftly I'm falling fast in love with you
And swiftly I'm losing a heart that once was blue
I can't hide emotion and devotion so true
Swiftly I'm falling fast in love with you

More and more I'm believing I need you by my side
And less and less I'm grieving as each day passes by
Darling, believe me, at last a dream is now in view
Swiftly I'm falling fast in love with you
      
Here Comes That Midnight Train (Larry W. Jones 08/29/2008) (song#5787)

Hear that lonesome whistle a-wailin' through the pines
As I lay here on my pillow cryin'
I feel the tears and try to cover up my head
I'm wonderin' what's the use in tryin'

Broken heart, here comes that midnight train
Just like the one I know she's on
Broken dreams, here comes that midnight train
Rollin' to some far away dawn
How I wish I knew where she's gone
Here comes that midnight train

I broke both her heart and mine
Now both our hearts are filled with pain
Hear that lonesome whistle whine
Here comes that midnight train

- instrumental -

Broken heart, here comes that midnight train
Just like the one I know she's on
Broken dreams, here comes that midnight train
Rollin' to some far away dawn
How I wish I knew where she's gone
Here comes that midnight train

Broken dreams, here comes that midnight train
Rollin' to some far away dawn
How I wish I knew where she's gone
Here comes that midnight train
Here comes that midnight train
      
Blue Spanish Guitar (Larry W. Jones 08/29/2008) (song#5788)

Tonight in Laredo, mi amigo is singing
Strumming upon his blue spanish guitar
Come and besame senorita, bella dama
While mi amigo plays under the stars

Aye yi, yi, yi, Aye yi, yi, yi
The stars will be lonely tomorrow
And the moon will wonder where you are
Aye yi, yi, yi, Aye yi, yi, yi
Tomorrow, senorita, I'll be lonely as well
And as sad as mi amigo's blue spanish guitar

- instrumental -

Now, there is still heard the soft singing in Laredo
Mi amigo still strums his blue spanish guitar
Adiós para siempre, goodbye forever
Senorita, bella dama, wherever you are

Aye yi, yi, yi, Aye yi, yi, yi
The stars will be lonely tomorrow
And the moon will wonder where you are
Aye yi, yi, yi, Aye yi, yi, yi
Tomorrow, senorita, I'll be lonely as well
And as sad as mi amigo's blue spanish guitar 
      
As Long As I Live (Larry W. Jones 08/29/2008) (song#5789)

As long as I live, I will be near you
For time will only endear you to me
Oh my darling, I'm sure there will be tears
But there will come many more tender years
To ward off big or small fears you may see
Dear, my love I'll give, as long as I live

Whatever you wish for, you'll not have to fish for
I'll give you everything, love and anything more
Dear, when I made you mine, I said I'd take the time
To walk with you in the sunshine as long as I live

- instrumental -

Oh my darling, I'm sure there will be tears
But there will come many more tender years
To ward off big or small fears you may see
Dear, my love I'll give as long as I live

Whatever you wish for, you'll not have to fish for
I'll give you everything, love and anything more
Dear, when I made you mine, I said I'd take the time
To walk with you in the sunshine as long as I live

Yes, when I made you mine, I said I'd take the time
To walk with you in the sunshine as long as I live
      
Cinders Of Love (Larry W. Jones 08/29/2008) (song#5790)

Our dreams have flown, clear out of sight
All hope is gone, it don't seem right
Push came to shove, love's line was crossed
Cinders of love, as cold as frost

Love that was mine, now on the run
You had the time, you had the fun
Now, it's goodbye, our love is lost
Cinders of love, as cold as frost

Our dreams have flown, clear out of sight
All hope is gone, it don't seem right
Push came to shove, love's line was crossed
Cinders of love, as cold as frost

- instrumental -

I need you near, but you've withdrawn
Where are you dear, where have you gone
My arms will wait, til your return
My heart will ache, for you it burns

Our dreams have flown, clear out of sight
All hope is gone, it don't seem right
Push came to shove, love's line was crossed
Cinders of love, as cold as frost
      
Lonesome Nights And Blues (Larry W. Jones 08/29/2008) (song#5791)

Lonesome nights with blues are rolling in
My heart has no clue if it will mend
When you were at hand, life was so grand
Now I'm just a blue and lonesome man
Lonesome nights with blues are rolling in

You waved me goodbye one lonesome day
Although I begged you, sweetheart, to stay
Now I'm right back where I've always been
Lonesome nights with blues are rolling in

Lonesome ever since you dropped from sight
Blue because you refused to treat me right
Lonesome nights with blues are rolling in
Lonesome nights with blues are rolling in

- instrumental -

You waved me goodbye one lonesome day
Although I begged you, sweetheart, to stay
Now I'm right back where I've always been
Lonesome nights with blues are rolling in

Lonesome ever since you dropped from sight
Blue because you refused to treat me right
Lonesome nights with blues are rolling in
Lonesome nights with blues are rolling in
      
Drinking To The Honky Tonk Waltz (Larry W. Jones 08/29/2008) (song#5792)

Blue neon lights are dim in this bar room
As I sit here thinking of all the loss
The laughing crowd is dancing to the tune
While I'm drinking to the Honky Tonk Waltz

It's a country waltz we learned together
As the dance floor we so happily crossed
I'm sinking here tonight in blue neon light
While I'm drinking to the Honky Tonk Waltz

There's so much gloom in this honky tonk room
Might as well go on home to turn and toss
There's no inkling that I'll recover soon
While I'm drinking to the Honky Tonk Waltz

- instrumental -

There's so much gloom in this honky tonk room
Might as well go on home to turn and toss
There's no inkling that I'll recover soon
While I'm drinking to the Honky Tonk Waltz

It's a country waltz we learned together
As the dance floor we so happily crossed
I'm sinking here tonight in blue neon light
While I'm drinking to the Honky Tonk Waltz
      
How Did I Get Here from There (Larry W. Jones 08/30/2008) (song#5793)

Tell me, how did I get here from there
This town where happiness can't be found
With gloominess blooming all year round
This old town full of heartaches and cares
How did I get here from there

Oh, I used to live in a small town
Where happiness was found all around
I never had heartaches or big cares
How did I get here from there

This town is a place for troubled minds
Where her face I know I'll never find
This town is full of mem'ries and tears
Of broken dreams from those wasted years
And I'll never get back there from here

- instrumental -

This town is a place for troubled minds
Where her face I know I'll never find
This town is full of mem'ries and tears
Of broken dreams from those wasted years

Tell me, how did I get here from there
This town where happiness can't be found
With gloominess blooming all year round
This old town full of heartaches and cares
How did I get here from there

Tell me, how did I get here from there
      
Big Barn Pigfarmer Blues (Larry W. Jones 08/30/2008) (song#5794)

I got pigs in the pig stye, pigs in the yard
Yeah, pigs in the pig stye and pigs in the yard
I raise little pigs and big pigs cause that's my point of view
Well, I got pigs as far as my eye can see
Lawd, I got pigs as far as my eye can see
I'm a pigfarmer with my shoes in the ooze
Yeah, just a pigfarmer with the big barn pigfarmer blues

I slop 'em when they're piglets, slop 'em when they're sows
Yeah, I slop 'em when they're piglets, slop 'em when they're sows
Cause I'm a pigfarmer and I feed 'em corn for their chow
I can't live without 'em, neighbors can't breath with 'em
They believe I need to stop pig farmin', but I always refuse
I ain't harmin' nobody, they all just got a short fuse
Yeah, I'm a pigfarmer with the big barn pigfarmer blues

- instrumental -

Neighbors say I'm lazy
And I better give up raisin' them pigs real quick
Neighbors say I'm crazy, yeah
Pig farmin' done made my mind all sick
But you know, oh yeah
I couldn't give up my farm if I wanted to
Yeah, I don't wanna lose...
Them big barn pigfarmer blues
Hormel likes to can 'em, spam-in-the-can-'em
That's what I am and, man, I don't wanna lose
Them big barn pigfarmer blues
No Lawd, I don't wanna lose
Them big barn pigfarmer blues, oh no....
      
Old Heartache With A New Sweetheart (Larry W. Jones 08/30/2008) (song#5795)

I'm on the rebound again, feelin' down again
Cause memories of an old love still come around
I've found somebody new, but someone I once knew
Still makes my heart ache through and through

Now, I've got an old heartache with a new sweetheart
An ache for someone I once knew
Yes, I've got an old heartache with a new sweetheart
An ache that's makin' my heart blue

- instrumental -

Her old memories come back again, time after time
After finding someone new to relieve my mind
I thought that we were through when I found someone new 
I know it's not true cause my heart aches through and through

Now, I've got an old heartache with a new sweetheart
An ache for someone I once knew
Yes, I've got an old heartache with a new sweetheart
An ache that's makin' my heart blue

Yes, I've got an old heartache with a new sweetheart
An ache that's makin' my heart blue
      
Window Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 08/30/2008) (song#5796)

Darling, look in the window of my heart
You'll see how full of love it is for you
Now dear, if you should see a teardrop start
Don't be sad, it's just glad for things you do
Yes dear, look in the window of my heart
You'll see how full of love it is for you

To your love I'll hold til we're gray and old
While remembering sweet young love we both knew
Darling, look in the window of my heart
You'll see how full of love it is for you

- instrumental -

No one could ever steal my love that's real
Dear, what I feel is genuinely true
Darling, look in the window of my heart
You'll see how full of love it is for you

Yes dear, look in the window of my heart
You'll see how full of love it is for you
      
One More Time (Larry W. Jones 08/30/2008) (song#5797)

I need to see you one more time
My sad heart needs to feel sublime
I need to see you one more time
And make believe that you're still mine

Arms that used to hold me so close
Now enfold someone new, I know
Even though it may be a crime
I need to see you one more time

Darling, oh, don't you know
That I still want you so
Oh, it's been such an uphill climb
I need to see you one more time

- instrumental -

Wish I could turn the hands of time
Back to that time where I could find
The love I had when you were mine
I need to see you one more time

Darling, oh, don't you know
That I still want you so
Oh, it's been such an uphill climb
I need to see you one more time
I need to see you one more time
I need to see you one more time
      
Old Skip (Larry W. Jones 08/30/2008) (song#5798)

When I was a lad and old Skip was a colt
O'er trails and prairies we'd stray
A young boy and his colt, o'er fences we'd bolt
I recall it all to this day

I remember the time on the big ol trail drive
As a young cowboy, I fought a bad stampede
Skip helped me survive and today I'm alive
Yes, old Skip came right through when I had a need

The years rolled along and old Skip drooped his head
So, I took him to the old vet for an exam
The vet took one look, then looked at me and said
Sorry, but nobody can save him now, Sam

Something I'd never done, I picked up my gun
And I aimed it old Skip's faithful head
But that deed I did shun, the tears had begun
I would have rather been shot instead

I took off his saddle and blanket of plaid
He laid his old head on my shoulder so free
I stroked the best pal a cowboy ever had
And in the old corral, I scarcely could see

Well, old Skip knew that his last trail ride was done
For he then reached his hoof out and touched my hand
His big eyes were bright as life faded from sight
And then I knew that he knew I'd understand

Now old Skip is gone to where good horses go
No more over trails will old Skip and I roam
For pals, if I had a vote, I'd choose the colt
I knew as a lad when old Skip was my own
      
Least Of All (Larry W. Jones 08/30/2008) (song#5799)

Now, some things in life don't really matter
Unless it's feast or famine or if love falls
But dreams that once mattered have now shattered
And losing you, I needed least of all

Least of all dear, I needed to lose you
You released me in Fall, as I recall
I had to lose you to see you happy
But losing you, I needed least of all

- instrumental -

It seems some live life for money only
When some beast of fantasy comes to call
Living life without you makes me lonely
For losing you, I needed least of all

Least of all dear, I needed to lose you
You released me in Fall, as I recall
I had to lose you to see you happy
But losing you, I needed least of all

Dear, losing you, I needed least of all
      
Fifty Eight Hundred Miles (Larry W. Jones 08/30/20080 (song#5800)

Fifty eight hundred miles from Texas, goin' home to my love
Fifty eight hundred miles from Texas, to one I'm thinkin' of 
Fifty eight hundred songs and counting, up to my number one 
You're my Texas darlin' and our love has just begun 

Dear, if you ask me how long for you my love will be 
Fifty eight hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see 
If I did it all over, not a thing would I change 
I would sing you Texas songs of love that I've arranged

- instrumental -

If you should ask me how deep for you my love will be
I would tell you that my love is deeper than the sea 
Fifty eight hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones 
Says I've gotta put more true love in these country songs

Fifty eight hundred miles from Texas, goin' home to my love
Fifty eight hundred miles from Texas, to one I'm thinkin' of 
Fifty eight hundred songs and counting, up to my number one 
You're my Texas darlin' and our love has just begun

Fifty eight hundred songs and counting, up to my number one 
You're my Texas darlin' and our love has just begun
