    This Heart Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 08/21/2006) (song#4002)
    
    This heart of mine will never mend
    Until I find true love, and then
    It will take some time, I know that it's true
    For this heart of mine to get over you
    
    Our love was a song that I thought would never end
    But something went wrong that I can't comprehend 
    I gave you my heart and my everything
    You tore it apart and broke every string
    
    This heart of mine will never mend
    Until I find true love, and then
    It will take some time, I know that it's true
    For this heart of mine to get over you
    
    I sit here alone with my memories
    Thinking of you as free as the breeze
    This heart of mine cries but nobody hears
    And here in my eyes are nothing but tears
    
    This heart of mine will never mend
    Until I find true love, and then
    It will take some time, I know that it's true
    For this heart of mine to get over you
    
    Back In Country Texas (Larry W. Jones 09/09/2006) (song#4003)
    
    I still remember the last time
    I saw that country Texas sun
    Risin' in its early mornin' climb
    A country Texas day had begun
    I still remember the last time
    I walked in that warm Summer rain
    Wish I was back in country Texas
    Back in country Texas once again
    
    Fond memories are tied to that country place
    A one room school to guide a freckled face
    Carryin' books for Ruby Ann, it sure was fun
    Strollin' hand in hand in that country Texas sun
    
    Back In country Texas
    There's only this I've gotta say
    Back In country Texas
    I miss that country Texas way
    Back In country Texas
    Away from all these lonely trials
    Back In country Texas
    Where country roads run for miles
    
    I still remember that Texas sun goin' down
    Rockin' on that front porch just outside of town
    I still remember a whippoorwill's lonesome song
    Callin' me back to my country Texas home
    
    Back In country Texas
    There's only this I've gotta say
    Back In country Texas
    I miss that country Texas way
    Back In country Texas
    Away from all these lonely trials
    Back In country Texas
    Where country roads run for miles
    
    Texas Two Step Fever (Larry W. Jones 09/11/2006) (song#4004)
    
    Well, I fed that old time jukebox, another quarter rolled right in
    Good as whiskey on the rocks when that record began to spin
    I heard that steel guitar as it made a moanin' sound
    And the word was Texas two-step fever comin' down
    
    Texas two-step fever comin' down
    Like a stereo receiver wakin' up the town
    It's the best 'ol country music ever found
    Texas two-step fever comin' down
    
    You'll get that boot-scootin' feelin' and it don't take long
    When you hear the twang of a good 'ol country song
    Just like Hank and Patsy sang when Texas music was so strong
    It's that Texas two-step fever with a Texas two-step song
    
    Texas two-step fever comin' down
    Like a stereo receiver wakin' up the town
    When you go to Texas, take a look around
    Texas two-step fever comin' down
    
    When your heart is lonesome and you don't know who to call
    Don't bother goin' to a doctor, just find a good dance hall
    Find yourself a partner with some two-step dancin' shoes
    Soon you'll be departin' of those low down country blues
    
    Texas two-step fever comin' down
    Like a stereo receiver wakin' up the town
    Here goes that boot-scootin' shuffle like an old hoe-down
    Texas two-step fever comin' down
    
    Texas two-step fever comin' down
    Like a stereo receiver wakin' up the town
    If you stop in Austin, Dallas, Houston,
    Anywhere you'll hear that sound
    Texas two-step fever comin' down 
    
    Cowboy Houston Town (Larry W. Jones 09/12/2006) (song#4005)
    
    Come ride along and let's go down
    To a place I know called Houston town
    The biggest show and rodeo around
    Is in a place called Houston town
    
    They'll meet us with a how-dee-do
    Along the banks of Buffalo Bayou
    If you wanna learn that Texas drawl
    Just turn an ear to Hi-dee-ho y'all
    
    They wear cowboy boots and Stetson hats with brims turned down
    The cowgirls sure are cute and trim down in cowboy Houston town
    
    Wherever on the range you wander
    Wherever strange place you may roam
    Houston's always waitin' over yonder
    That cowboy town always calls me home
    
    They wear cowboy boots and Stetson hats with brims turned down
    The cowgirls sure are cute and trim down in cowboy Houston town
    
    The cowgirls sure are cute and trim down in cowboy Houston town
    
    Little Texas Towns (Larry W. Jones 09/14/2006) (song #4006)
    
    In my mind I go back in time to April '44
    When I was just a baby on my Mama's knee
    My Daddy was next of kin to the wayward wind
    So, all of us kids my dear Mama had to feed
    
    Little Texas towns
    Where jobs were none or far between
    Little Texas towns
    The war was done and we ate beans
    Little Texas towns
    In my mind I go back in time to little Texas towns
    
    My Mama did the laundry for other good folks
    The cast iron heater in the Winter she kept stoked
    My Mama sang sweet songs to hide her bitter woe
    And they all rang with love as sure as purest gold
    
    Mama kept looking for a brighter day
    Cooking at the stove in her faded gown
    I grew up watching her hair turn to grey
    Never did see one of her dreams come 'round
    
    Little Texas towns
    Where jobs were none or far between
    Little Texas towns
    The war was done and we ate beans
    Little Texas towns
    In my mind I go back in time to little Texas towns
    
    But Mama raised us right in those little Texas towns
    
    Heat Index (Larry W. Jones 09/14/2006) (song#4007)
    
    It happens every Summer
    When the Texas sun turns hot
    It comes on like a drummer
    A dream love I've no longer got
    
    As the hot Texas days get longer
    Sometimes I think I'm gonna die
    And as that dream gets stronger
    The heat index sure gets high
    
    The heat index is high
    On a hot Texas day
    But there's no sun in the sky
    No warm love on the way
    
    There's a sweat I feel begin to start
    A heat index like there's never been
    And it's burning up my broken heart
    Like a fire in the burning Texas wind
    
    It happens every Summer
    When the Texas sun turns hot
    It comes on like a drummer
    A dream love I've no longer got
    
    And the hot Texas days get longer
    Sometimes I think I'm gonna die
    And as that dream gets stronger
    The heat index sure gets high
    
    Yeah, the heat index sure gets high
    
    Daddy's Old Steel Guitar (Larry W. Jones 09/15/2006) (song#4008)
    
    In a corner by the back wall
    In the middle room down the hall
    My Daddy kept his steel guitar for so long
    As I grew up as a lanky kid
    I dreamed of doing what my Daddy did
    And play that steel guitar to his favorite song
    
    Daddy made that steel guitar ring - steel guitar ...
    
    When Daddy died I had to cry
    But I knew I had to try
    To play his old steel guitar that now was mine
    So I practiced on it every day
    Trying to play it my Daddy's way
    I played his favorite song ten thousand times
    
    Now I make that steel guitar ring - steel guitar ...
    
    I wish I still had my Daddy now
    So I could show him proudly how
    How his old steel guitar sounds the same
    So, I'll just slide this steel along
    Play my Daddy's favorite song
    And try to remember how he played again
    
    Now make this steel guitar ring - steel guitar ...
    
    Everybody Gets A Broken Heart (Larry W. Jones 09/15/2006) (song#4009)
    
    Everybody gets a broken heart sometimes
    And everybody plays the part
    Of a fool who's the victim of love's crimes
    Everybody gets a broken heart
    
    A lonesome tune, alone in June
    Wonder why hearts can be so blind
    If it isn't love then what's the worth of
    Putting yourself through the grind
    And everybody knows when the heartaches start
    Cause everybody gets a broken heart
    
    ---instrumental---
    
    A lonesome tune, alone in June
    Wonder why hearts can be so blind
    If it isn't love then what's the worth of
    Putting yourself through the grind
    And everybody knows when the heartaches start
    Cause everybody gets a broken heart
    
    Everybody gets a broken heart
    
    For A Minute Or Two (Larry W. Jones 09/15/2006) (song#4010)
    
    My mem'ry control is out of control
    Except for a minute or two
    Cause that's the only time that I forget
    That I'm still in love with you
    
    Every day I remind myself to say
    That I regret the day we met
    And for a minute or two
    I forget that I'm still in love with you
    
    When I'm about to forget you is when I find
    You're still on my mind
    After the sunshine comes and dries the dew
    I try to find the peace I knew
    And for a minute or two
    I forget that I'm still in love with you
    
    Every day I remind myself to say
    That I regret the day we met
    And for a minute or two
    I forget that I'm still in love with you
    
    And for a minute or two
    I forget that I'm still in love with you
    
    Where The Lonesome Cowboys Ride (Larry W. Jones 09/15/2006) (song #4011)
    
    Riding where the lonesome cowboys ride
    Away from where my dreams have died
    Anywhere that I can run and hide
    Riding where the lonesome cowboys ride
    
    Now that there's nothing left to do
    I'm saddled up and through with you
    This lonesome trail is now my guide
    Riding where the lonesome cowboys ride
    
    I've gotta keep on riding West
    Gotta find a better hunting ground
    Some place where hearts can be at rest
    And lonesome hearts don't hang around
    
    I've gotta keep on riding now
    Out where the sky is big and wide
    My dreams are dust anyhow
    Riding where the lonesome cowboys ride
    
    I've gotta keep on riding now
    Out where the sky is big and wide
    My dreams are dust anyhow
    Riding where the lonesome cowboys ride
    
    Up On A Mountain (Larry W. Jones 09/15/2006) (song#4012)
    
    Up on a mountain overlooking the town
    I can see down where the bright lights burn
    You're looking pretty in your wedding gown
    And you think it shouldn't be my concern
    
    Up on a mountain my heart is crying
    This could have been our wedding day
    Up on a mountain my heart is dying
    Why, oh why did I let you slip away
    
    How could you fall for his lines so smooth
    How could you go and say, I do
    There's no way that mere words can soothe
    My broken heart that cries over you
    
    Up on a mountain my heart is crying
    This could have been our wedding day
    Up on a mountain my heart is dying
    Why, oh why did I let you slip away
    
    Up on a mountain my heart is crying
    This could have been our wedding day
    Up on a mountain my heart is dying
    Why, oh why did I let you slip away
    
    An Old Salty Dog (Larry W. Jones 09/15/2006) (song#4013)
    
    Well, I've been thinking of buying a boat
    A little cabin cruiser that knows how to float
    My hopes are sinking in love's drowning tears
    I need a vacation from all of these cares
    
    I could fly away to somewhere remote
    But I envy a sleepy turtle on an old log
    So, I've been thinking of buying a boat
    And floating away like an old salty dog
    
    I wanna go where it's warm, no need for a coat
    Forget about love that was lost in the fog
    I'll ride out the storm in my cozy new boat
    Just a man lost in time like an old salty dog
    
    Well, big city life is too fast a pace
    This cowboy's heart it can't console
    The past is now just love's lost race
    That boat will do a slow rock and roll
    
    Every time I read those lines she wrote
    My heart can feel that harpoon log
    So, I've been thinking of buying a boat
    And floating away like an old salty dog
    
    I wanna go where it's warm, no need for a coat
    Forget about love that was lost in the fog
    I'll ride out the storm in my cozy new boat
    Just a man lost in time like an old salty dog
    
    I'll ride out the storm in my cozy new boat
    Just a man lost in time like an old salty dog
    
    Cowboy Joe's Last Ride (Larry W. Jones 09/15/2006) (song #4014)
    
    Riding out on a west bound trail
    Galloping through the night
    Cowboy Joe with two bags of mail
    Was riding for his life
    
    And the loudness of his fevered call
    Rang through the night in vain
    He spurred his horse on through the draw
    As he wiped away the rain
    
    No warm camp fire would him befriend
    No Navajo blanket could he hold
    Nothing to face but the howling wind
    And the rain that shivered to his soul
    
    When I hear that wind a-blowin'
    I see him riding through the fray
    Knowing not where he was going
    For the trail ended where he lay
    
    Hey, ho---Cowboy Joe (yodel)
    
    (instrumental)
    
    On the Pony Express the rain was falling
    As the horse kept galloping with the mail
    Brave Cowboy Joe had found his calling 
    But now Joe lay dying beside the trail
    
    As his pony sped through the darkness
    Up the trail of the Great Divide
    Nobody knew that Cowboy Joe
    Had carried the mail on his last ride
    
    Hey, ho---Cowboy Joe (yodel)
    
    Brazos At Waco (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2001) (song#4015)
    
    Now, there's the Blackwater Draw in New Mexico
    Where the small headwaters of the Brazos are found
    The sandy Salt Fork by Lubbock carries the flow
    And old Double Mountain sees it come rolling down
    
    I was raised in an old mid-Texas town
    A cowboy full of both vigor and vim
    The flowing Brazos was where we'd go down
    To the high banks of the river to swim
    
    The Brazos River can flood and get mighty wide
    By the time the current flows by Waco, my friend
    You may find me along the banks of the Rio
    I'll never cross the Brazos at Waco again
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I'll never cross the Brazos at Waco again
    For it was there by the Brazos where I met her
    And it was over there that our love would begin
    Oh, how her memíry still makes my lonely heart stir
    
    It was there in the full Texas moonlight
    That her beautiful life drifted away
    Now when I see the full Texas moonlight
    I know itís here in west Texas I'll stay
    
    I reside now on the dry plains of west Texas
    I drifted out somehow with the west Texas wind
    You may find me along the banks of the Rio
    I'll never cross the Brazos at Waco again
    
    I'll never cross the Brazos at Waco again
    
    Born To Be The Sailing Kind (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2006) (song#4016)
    
    I was born to be the sailing kind
    Drifting away impressed upon my mind
    Home port wasn't where I spent my time
    When the front door closed, the back door opened
    I was born to be the sailing kind
    
    Somewhere inside me there's a jail
    Though I'm free to sail where I please
    The walls seem like they're made of stone
    And someone else has the keys
    I can't get out, so I always sail alone
    
    I was born to be the sailing kind
    Drifting away impressed upon my mind
    Home port wasn't where I spent my time
    When the front door closed, the back door opened
    I was born to be the sailing kind
    
    When the front door closed, the back door opened
    I was born to be the sailing kind
    I was born to be the sailing kind
    I was born to be the sailing kind
    
    Silver Sails (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2006) (song#4017)
    
    Silver sails, billowed on the ocean
    Setting sail toward another port out of sight
    You're drifting away, showing no emotion
    Silver sails, fading o'er the ocean tonight
    
    Oh, how I begged you not to go
    Don't go aboard at the captain's chime
    But you've filled my mind with plenty of woe
    I'm here on the dock that you left behind
    
    Silver sails, billowed on the ocean
    Setting sail toward another port out of sight
    You're drifting away, showing no emotion
    Silver sails, fading o'er the ocean tonight
    
    Silver sails, billowed on the ocean
    Setting sail toward another port out of sight
    You're drifting away, showing no emotion
    Silver sails, fading o'er the ocean tonight
    
    Just Between Your Heart And Mine (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2006) (song#4018)
    
    Just between your heart and mine
    A window is open that we see through
    There's never been a wall so tall
    That you and I could never climb
    
    I love you oh, so much, think of you all the time
    And I know by your touch that you love me
    There's an open door that has no key
    Just between your heart and mine
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Just between your heart and mine
    A window is open that we see through
    There's never been a wall so tall
    That you and I could never climb
    
    I love you oh, so much, think of you all the time
    And I know by your touch that you love me
    There's an open door that has no key
    Just between your heart and mine
    
    Tomorrow's Sorrows (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2006) (song#4019)
    
    I will trade tomorrow's sorrows
    For just one happy yesterday
    Why chase a future I can't face
    Without a love that went away
    
    I will trade tomorrow's sorrows
    Heaven smile from up above
    A heart in need will surely bleed
    Without the one I'm dreaming of
    
    My world is empty as can be
    Look what you've done to me
    I will trade my everything
    If you'll return with anything
    That will cause tomorrow's sorrows
    To be gone from me now
    
    I will trade tomorrow's sorrows
    For just one happy yesterday
    I can't see how I can live
    Without your love anyhow
    
    I will trade tomorrow's sorrows
    For just one happy yesterday
    
    My Ship Never Stops At Galveston (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2006) (song#4020)
    
    For so long I've tried to find a way
    To leave this poor old Galveston Bay
    On a ship that's outward bound
    Where fresher breezes always blow
    And where dreams were meant to grow
    But my ship never stops at Galveston
    
    I want to buy a mansion for my love
    Somewhere in the southern tropic sun
    Tahiti is where I'm dreaming of
    But my ship never stops at Galveston
    
    I've thought of every way this town to skip
    And the only way left is on an outbound ship
    
    Down at the dock you'll see me crying
    When some captain blows that lonesome sound
    A beat my heart is known to skip
    When a ship, an old tramp freighter comes around
    But my ship never stops at Galveston
    
    No, my ship never stops at Galveston
    
    Dirt Road Fever (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2006) (song#4021)
    
    Dirt road fever, a malady I was born with long ago
    Dirt road fever, too poor and nothing worth to show
    
    You can tell by the sweat that's on my forehead
    I might as well forget about getting anywhere ahead
    These dirt roads are only here to remind me
    Ain't no reason to hurry 'cause I know I'll be
    Dyin' right here with dirt road fever in my bed
    
    Sometimes I wonder what went wrong
    That keeps me singin' this dirt road song
    I sure would like to see some golden shore
    Any place from here that I ain't seen before
    
    Dirt road fever, a malady I was born with long ago
    Dirt road fever, too poor and nothing worth to show
    
    You can tell by the sweat that's on my forehead
    I might as well forget about getting anywhere ahead
    These dirt roads are only here to remind me
    Ain't no reason to hurry 'cause I know I'll be
    Dyin' right here with dirt road fever in my bed
    
    Dirt road fever, a malady I was born with long ago
    Dirt road fever, too poor and nothing worth to show
    
    This dirt road fever just won't let me go
    
    Texas Is (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2006) (song#4022)
    
    Texas is, ridin' tall in the saddle
    List'nin' to coyotes howlin' at end of day
    Texas is, not makin' any rattle
    Just mindin' your own doggone business come what may
    
    Texas is, livin' outside the city
    And helping all of your neighbors with your own time
    Texas is, singin' like Conway Twitty
    Texas is, more than a natural state of mind
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Texas is, workin' hard for a livin'
    Sayin' Míam to the ladies, and doin' whatís right
    Texas is, not takin', lots of givin'
    And makin' sure your Stetson hat is cowboy white
    
    Texas is, lookin' for all the good times
    While singin' good Ďol country music from your heart
    Texas is, tryin' to make honest dimes
    Texas is, where I've called my home right from the start
    
    Lazy Brazos Waltz (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2006) (song#4023)
    
    It's peaceful out this evening
    Along the lazy Brazos stream
    Riding on the range all alone
    I'm lonely but I feel like a king
    My pony and I make a team
    Where the lazy Brazos flows along
    
    This summer has seen lots of rain
    And the purple sage is growin' tall
    There's nothing that I'd rearrange
    This cowboy heard the Brazos call
    
    At night the moon shines bright on the Brazos
    As along the banks I roam
    And mighty soon I'll see the light by the Brazos
    Of that ranch that I call home
    
    Riding on the range all alone
    I'm lonely but I feel like a king
    My pony and I make a team
    Where the lazy Brazos flows along
    
    There's nothing that I'd rearrange
    Where the lazy Brazos flows along
    
    Valle Vidal (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2006) (song#4024)
    
    Like a lovely Mexican senorita
    When the wind blows through her hair
    It's like a dream when I see her
    Every time I ride my pony there
    
    Valle Vidal, Valle Vidal
    I've been away too long from you
    But I know you're always waiting
    Under Sangre de Christo skies of blue
    
    In the shadow of Wild Horse Mesa
    The Valley of Life calls me again
    Just as the Mexican Vermejo
    Called the caballeros way back then
    
    Valle Vidal, Valle Vidal
    I've been away too long from you
    But I know you're always waiting
    Under Sangre de Christo skies of blue
    
    Like the wild Utes and Comanches
    At the headwaters of the Rio Grande
    Like a lovely Mexican senorita's call
    My heart responds to your command
    
    Valle Vidal, Valle Vidal
    I've been away too long from you
    But I know you're always waiting
    Under Sangre de Christo skies of blue
    
    Somewhere Along The Texas Border (Larry W. Jones 09/20/2006) (song#4025)
    
    Tonight my saddlebags are packed
    Tomorrow I'll ride the trail of tracks
    That leads south along the Texas border
    Maybe tomorrow I'll see the eyes
    Of my true love under Texas skies
    Somewhere along the Texas border
    
    But even if I don't, I won't be near
    The pain and sorrow that I've found here
    A cowboy needs harmony and order
    The Rio Grande runs free and wide
    I'll make that Mexicali Rose my bride
    Somewhere along the Texas border
    
    I'll build her a new adobe house
    Up on a high El Paso hill
    Somewhere along the Texas border
    I'll buy her a pretty gingham blouse
    Her love will all my dreams fulfill
    Somewhere along the Texas border
    
    I'll play my guitar and sing her songs
    Kiss her hello and my woes goodbye
    Down by the Rio Grande waters
    She'll fill my arms my whole life long
    I know we'll find our paradise
    Somewhere along the Texas border
    
    El Paso Waltz (Larry W. Jones 09/21/2006) (song#4026)
    
    If your heart is imparting an ache to be starting
    Some romancing and dancing around
    Then don't you be stalling, go get your darling
    And drive to the bright lights of El Paso town
    You'll be glad when you do
    You can dance 'til you're blue
    So, put on your bolero, wear your sombrero
    And your darling you'll lasso with the El Paso Waltz
    
    Invite all the kinfolks, even the thin blokes
    Say, put on your best dancin' boots
    There's so much to gain, no need to explain
    That you'll dance away pain and blues
    That you'll dance away pain and blues
    So, fill up the hall, watch her heart fall  
    And your darling you'll lasso with the El Paso Waltz
    
    I met a fine Texas lady, she didn't seem shady
    I mean she was as pretty as she could be
    My heart had been sinking but she changed my thinking
    So, I asked her to go dancing with me
    As I recall, she said it would be such a ball
    And my darling I lassoed with the El Paso Waltz
    
    If your heart is imparting an ache to be starting
    Some romancing and dancing around
    Then don't you be stalling, go get your darling
    And drive to the bright lights of El Paso town
    You'll be glad when you do
    You can dance 'til you're blue
    So, put on your bolero, wear your sombrero
    And your darling you'll lasso with the El Paso Waltz
    
    Waltz I Danced With You (Larry W. Jones 09/21/2006) (song#4027)
    
    In every dream dear, starting today
    I'll dream of the waltz I danced with you
    And it will seem dear, in every way
    The romance that we found is still true
    
    Whenever I'm lonely, which surely I'll be
    Though we whispered goodbye, don't you see
    I'll think of you only, please think of me too
    I'll dream of the waltz I danced with you
    
    I'll be here waiting should you return
    Love in my heart for you ever will burn
    So, if by chance, dreams do come true
    I'll dream of the waltz I danced with you
    
    Whenever I'm lonely, which surely I'll be
    Though we whispered goodbye, don't you see
    I'll think of you only, please think of me too
    I'll dream of the waltz I danced with you
    
    I'll be here waiting should you return
    Love in my heart for you ever will burn
    So, if by chance, dreams do come true
    I'll dream of the waltz I danced with you
    
    Tyler Rose (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2006) (song#4028)
    
    There's a rose that grows in Tyler Texas
    She's a wild rambling rose that makes me cry
    No love child is sweeter than that flower
    A Texas rose that goes and makes me sigh
    
    When I see the dew upon the petals
    I then remember teardrops and the pain
    And when it's Springtime in Tyler Texas
    Oh, how I want to see my rose again
    
    (instrumental)
    
    The time back when we were childhood sweethearts
    Keeps coming back to my mind with the pain
    Each time I travel through east Texas parts
    Tyler rose mem'ries make me go insane
    
    There's a rose that grows in Tyler Texas
    She's a wild rambling rose that makes me cry
    No love child is sweeter than that flower
    A Texas rose that goes and makes me sigh
    
    (instrumental)
    
    A rose will bloom only once
    Like a lost love it will die
    I'm the lonely one who hunts
    For a rose who said goodbye
    
    There's a rose that grows in Tyler Texas
    She's a wild rambling rose that makes me cry
    No love child is sweeter than that flower
    A Texas rose that goes and makes me sigh
    
    There's a rose that grows in Tyler Texas
    A Texas rose that goes and makes me sigh
    
    Heartaches And Byways (Larry W. Jones 09/30/2006) (song#4029)
    
    Many places I've seen, roads in between
    Here I am again under neon light
    Sitting on this stool, feeling like a fool
    Singing songs of love in the dead of night
    
    Some roads I thought were right were mistaken
    But for me, there ain't no turning around
    Roads I've taken were long and forsaken
    Weaving their way into that highway sound
    
    Heartaches and byways, good days and bad days
    I'm that lonesome whistle heard in the night
    Heading for a show date, slowing on the jake brake
    I keep my Silver Eagle going for the lights
    It's heartaches and byways tonight
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Singing songs I've sung since the world's been around
    Tomorrow I'll be where fans sit and stare
    And hopefully they will cheer at my sound
    When I place a yellow rose in her hair
    
    I'll tell them about all my wild stories
    Places I have been, strangers become friends
    Roads of life hold temporary glories
    You never know what's next around the bends
    
    Heartaches and byways, good days and bad days
    I'm that lonesome whistle heard in the night
    Heading for a show date, slowing on the jake brake
    I keep my Silver Eagle going for the lights
    It's heartaches and byways tonight
    
    (instrumental)
    
    So, light a candle for me
    To let me know you will be
    Waiting at the end of my ride
    
    Heartaches and byways, good days and bad days
    I'm that lonesome whistle heard in the night
    Heading for a show date, slowing on the jake brake
    I keep my Silver Eagle going for the lights
    
    Many places I've seen, roads in between
    It's heartaches and byways tonight
    Many places I've seen, roads in between
    It's heartaches and byways tonight
    It's heartaches and byways tonight
    
    Tennessee River (Larry W. Jones 10/04/2006) (song#4030)
    
    My heart is filled with sadness
    Ever since she went away to hide
    And my dreams are only madness
    It seems 'cause she's not by my side
    
    Tennessee River, flowing free
    Take me back to a sunny day
    Find a way that she will see
    Tennessee River, what her love means to me
    
    My heart is filled with sadness
    Ever since she went away to hide
    And my dreams are only madness
    It seems 'cause she's not by my side
    
    A man can spend his lifetime tryin'
    To get a little love and sympathy
    I know there ain't no use in cryin'
    But I know I need her home with me
    
    Tennessee River, flowing free
    Take me back to a sunny day
    Find a way that she will see
    Tennessee River, what her love means to me
    
    Tennessee River, flowing free
    Take me back to a sunny day
    Find a way that she will see
    Tennessee River, what her love means to me
    
    Where The Red Oleander Grows (Larry W. Jones 10/05/2006) (song#4031)
    
    Alaska is where the cold snow flies
    And the sun don't shine in the wintertime
    I see the look in my love's eyes
    And we're gonna leave this dirt and grime
    And we're gonna leave this dirt and grime
    
    There's people we like in Fairbanks town
    We'll miss them, I suppose
    But my heart is down in Galveston
    Where the red Oleander grows
    Where the red Oleander grows
    
    When the Yukon rises with the Springtime flow
    You know that we won't stick around
    We'll be saying goodbyes to the people we know
    And we'll be Galveston bound
    My love and I will be Galveston bound
    
    The roots of life are like a strong oak tree
    That pulls on your heart within
    Stronger than steel, they've got a hold on me
    Galveston's calling to me again
    Galveston's calling to me again
    
    There's people we like in Fairbanks town
    We'll miss them, I suppose
    But my heart is down in Galveston
    Where the red Oleander grows
    Where the red Oleander grows
    
    Little Town Under Big Texas Skies (Larry W. Jones 10/05/2006) (song#4032)
    
    I was strolling along in Corpus Christi sand
    Met an old man, brush and easel in his hand
    He could make the Gulf of Mexico come alive
    So I asked if he could revive something grand
    His eyes were aglow as he said, I understand
    
    Paint me a little town under big Texas skies  
    Make the colors bright so they won't fade
    Paint a little ranch house that I can prize
    The one where I wish that she had stayed
    Put her in the painting by the front yard fence
    So I can be explaining right before her eyes
    That living without her ain't worth two cents
    In that little town under big Texas skies  
    
    The old painter took another look at me
    Opened up a picture book for me to see
    That he had painted lots of those scenes before
    And he could paint her back into my heart once more 
    
    Paint me a little town under big Texas skies  
    Make the colors bright so they won't fade
    Paint a little ranch house that I can prize
    The one where I wish that she had stayed
    Put her in the painting by the front yard fence
    So I can be explaining right before her eyes
    That living without her ain't worth two cents
    In that little town under big Texas skies 
    
    A Bull They Call Cyclone (Larry W. Jones 10/05/2006) (song#4033)
    
    Rolling along I-10 interstate
    Headed for San Antone
    Makin' sure that he ain't late
    To ride a bull they call Cyclone
    He can't get over feeling
    That this time he's gonna groan
    Gonna take some time for healing
    After riding a bull they call Cyclone
    
    He's been ridin' this rodeo circuit
    With a cowboy's grit and Texas pride
    He knows how much he oughta' quit
    But he won't admit a dream that died
    
    He's strapping on the chaps behind the pen
    They're playing taps for rodeo cowboys again
    Once more he'll be looking for eight
    When that bull goes cooking outta the gate
    There ain't no time to look back now
    The chute whistle already has blown
    And he's getting ready to show 'em how
    On the back of a bull they call Cyclone
    
    There ain't no time to look back now
    The chute whistle already has blown
    And he's getting ready to show 'em how
    On the back of a bull they call Cyclone
    
    Man From Wild Horse Mesa (Larry W. Jones 10/06/2006) (song#4034)
    
    The man from Wild Horse Mesa
    Has an adobe in the town of Questa
    That sometimes he calls home
    But the man from Wild Horse Mesa
    Rides in the rodeo doin' his best
    And like the wind he has to roam
    
    The Sangre de Christo tumbleweeds
    Roll through the mesa day and night
    The man from Wild Horse Mesa needs
    That kind of restless rodeo life
    
    He's the man from Wild Horse Mesa
    New Mexico blood runs in his veins
    He's the man from Wild Horse Mesa
    Riding rodeo studs amid the pains
    
    He breaks the horses for the crowd
    Nothing breaks the Wild Horse Mesa man
    Ride 'em 'til he dies is what he vowed
    Cause the rodeo is all he understands
    
    The Sangre de Christo tumbleweeds
    Roll through the mesa day and night
    The man from Wild Horse Mesa needs
    That kind of restless rodeo life
    
    The man from Wild Horse Mesa needs
    That kind of restless rodeo life
    
    Outlaw On The Run (Larry W. Jones 10/06/2006) (song#4035)
    
    He breathed the prarie dust on the day that he was born
    In the bed of a Conestoga says the tale
    He was raised to be a cowboy, his Mama's favorite son
    But he was born to ride the outlaw trail
    
    Robbing banks and stopping trains
    Wanted by the law before he turned twenty one
    Breathing prarie dust, outlaw in his veins
    His thumb would count the notches on his gun
    
    One day there came a stranger
    Into the town he rode with his gun
    A man of fame, a Texas Ranger
    Looking for an outlaw on the run
    
    The noon day sun was hot when they came together
    Prarie dust was blowing down the street
    They talk about when two fast guns cleared leather
    And one man lay dying at the other's feet
    
    He breathed the prarie dust on the day that he was born
    In the bed of a Conestoga says the tale
    He was raised to be a cowboy, his Mama's favorite son
    But he was born to ride the outlaw trail
    
    The Texas Ranger saddled up and rode out of town
    Leaving the outlaw on the run who made his Mama mourn
    He was born to be an outlaw but the Ranger shot him down
    And he returned to the very dust of the day that he was born
    
    Pecos River Home (Larry W. Jones 10/06/2006) (song#4036)
    
    The harvest moon is risin' in west Texas skies tonight
    It's good to know that soon I won't be alone
    Down by the Pecos she makes everything seem right
    I'm ridin' back to my Pecos River home
    
    Where the Pecos winds by Langtry
    In west Texas from where I roam
    There's a place that waits for me
    That I call my Pecos River home
    
    Ridin' by King Mountain and down through Castle Gap
    My point of view for happiness won't change
    The Pecos River guides me and I don't need a map
    I just need my home on this west Texas range
    
    Where the Pecos winds by Langtry
    In west Texas from where I roam
    There's a place that waits for me
    That I call my Pecos River home
    
    I'm ridin' back to my love and my Pecos River home
    
    If The Jukebox Was A Timeclock (Larry W. Jones 10/06/2006) (song#4037)
    
    If the jukebox was a time clock
    And the drinks were on the house
    If the sidewalk led back to the past
    Before these burnt up dreams were doused
    Then I'd set that old jukebox
    To play a song that would bring an end
    And I'd drink to a memory
    Of a path I can't seem to mend
    
    How long can a man keep goin'
    Living every day as if the last
    I've paid off every debt just knowin'
    That I can't pay off my past
    
    If the jukebox was a time clock
    And the drinks were on the house
    If the sidewalk led back to the past
    Before these burnt up dreams were doused
    Then I'd set that old jukebox
    To play a song that would bring an end
    And I'd drink to a memory
    Of a path I can't seem to mend
    
    I know I'd be flyin' up on cloud nine
    And livin' on easy street
    If there was still time to make her mine
    Like a jukebox song so sweet
    
    If the jukebox was a time clock
    And the drinks were on the house
    If the sidewalk led back to the past
    Before these burnt up dreams were doused
    Then I'd set that old jukebox
    To play a song that would bring an end
    And I'd drink to a memory
    Of a path I can't seem to mend
    
    If the jukebox was a time clock
    And the drinks were on the house
    
    Bluebonnets Of Texas (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2006) (song#4038)
    
    Bluebonnets of Texas, now see how they grow
    That flower of Texas sure puts on a show
    They cover the meadows, and their blue supplies
    The color of my darlin's Texas blue eyes
     
    Wherever I ramble, wherever I roam
    I always come back to my Texas home
    When I see paintbrushes and bluebonnets too
    That's when I know I'm closer to you
    
    Bluebonnets of Texas, now see how they grow
    The flower of Texas sure puts on a show
    They cover the meadows, and their blue supplies
    The color of my darlin's Texas blue eyes
    
    We ain't got much money, we work on a farm
    Winters are mild, not hard to keep warm
    We need a vacation from milking these cows
    But my love thinks here is heaven anyhow
    
    Every springtime when the month of May is due
    Bluebonnets of Texas all come into view
    Those bluebonnets get me to thinking of
    The only darlin' in Texas with eyes I love
    
    Pretty Texas Cowgirl (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2006) (song#4039)
    
    Once I heard a love song
    That wasn't hard to understand
    I heard it on the jukebox
    From a country music band
    
    Over the years I've travelled
    Many a thousand miles
    Looking for that perfect girl
    Dressed in Texas cowgirl style
    
    I've heard it on the airwaves
    Seen it written in the sand
    Such a love that she gave
    Would make a happy man
    
    I never will be happy
    Til I find true love, I know
    That pretty Texas cowgirl
    Down beside the Alamo
    
    I have seen the moon rise
    Full and big as it can be
    And I've looked for blue eyes
    That might look back at me
    
    This dream that I've been dreaming
    Makes a cowboy surely smile
    Some day I know she'll be with me
    Dressed in Texas cowgirl style
    
    I've heard it on the airwaves
    Seen it written in the sand
    Such a love that she gave
    Would make a happy man
    
    I never will be happy
    Til I find true love, I know
    That pretty Texas cowgirl
    Down beside the Alamo
    
    Texas Blue Eyed Darlin' (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2006) (song#4040)
    
    She's a Texas blue eyed darlin'
    Every cowboy's dream come true
    And I'm gonna ask that darlin'
    To be my blue eyed darlin' too
    
    There are days when I don't see her
    I wonder who else admires her smiling face
    I have to tell her that I truly love her
    And to not let someone else take my place
    
    She's a Texas blue eyed darlin'
    Every cowboy's dream come true
    And I'm gonna ask that darlin'
    To be my blue eyed darlin' too
    
    Tonight I'll see her at the rodeo
    And please may her answer be, I pray
    That she doesn't love another
    And in my world she'll want to stay
    
    She's a Texas blue eyed darlin'
    Every cowboy's dream come true
    And I'm gonna ask that darlin'
    To be my blue eyed darlin' too
    
    When Cowboys Danced With Wolves (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2006) (song#4041)
    
    A thousand head of longhorns on the Goodnight-Loving trail
    Eight cowboys and the Cookie drivin' through the rain and hail
    Riding the point or pulling drag and the flank men two by two
    The only thing they looked forward to was Cookie's pot of stew
    
    When cowboys danced with wolves
    The western stars were above their heads
    Facing stampedes of longhorn's hooves
    They wondered if they'd end up dead
    
    When cowboys danced with wolves
    They didn't wear designer jeans
    When cowboys danced with wolves
    It was tin cup coffee and beans
    Gathered around the warm campfire
    Tellin' lies they all understood
    On the Goodnight-Loving trail of mire
    When cowboys danced with wolves
    
    Wiping the sweat from off their brows
    Riding drag behind longhorn cows
    Another day full of pain and woe
    Heading toward the Colorado snow
    A thousand more miles to ride
    Up and over the Great Divide
    If anyone can make it, a drover can
    All the way to cold Cheyenne
    
    When cowboys danced with wolves
    They didn't wear designer jeans
    When cowboys danced with wolves
    It was tin cup coffee and beans
    Gathered around the warm campfire
    Tellin' lies they all understood
    On the Goodnight-Loving trail of mire
    When cowboys danced with wolves
    
    When cowboys danced with wolves
    
    Are You Ever Gonna Be Mine (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2006) (song#4042)
    
    Does the sun seem somewhat brighter
    Do your cares feel somewhat lighter
    Are you ever gonna be mine
    
    Will I be the one you care for
    Can't you see that it's you I adore
    Are you ever gonna be mine
    
    Can I trust you for a little longer
    Must I wait for love that's stronger
    Are my dreams in any danger
    Don't like being a lone ranger
    Are you ever gonna be mine
    
    Is your heart beating any faster
    If it's not, then it's disaster
    Are you ever gonna be mine
    
    Can I trust you for a little longer
    Must I wait for love that's stronger
    Are my dreams in any danger
    Don't like being a lone ranger
    Are you ever gonna be mine
    
    Darlin' are you ever gonna be mine
    
    The Prarie Wind (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2006) (song#4043)
    
    The prarie wind was my best friend
    When it brought my love to me
    It lingered here part of the year
    As if it had heard my lonely plea
    We rode along with a western song
    Played on the prarie wind
    
    Like a dream by a flowing stream
    The days went drifting by
    The world we knew was brand new too
    Underneath the prarie sky
    
    Then one day I heard you say
    That you must go away
    I thought the prarie wind was my best friend
    But when it called to you that way
    I lost my love and my best friend
    To the prarie wind
    
    I can't pretend to comprehend
    Why you had to go
    I'm so lonely for you only
    Cause I still love you so
    And now I know what brought this woe
    When the lonely nights descend
    Once I called him my best friend
    The prarie wind
    The prarie wind
    The prarie wind
    
    Singin' At The Ryman (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2006) (song#4044)
    
    When I was growing up I dreamed of a pickup truck
    And a guitar made for strummin'
    I'd drive that truck around to every honky tonk in town
    And the crowds would be a-hummin'
    
    When I came of age I dreamed of the Opry stage
    No more nickle and dimin'
    Big belt buckle with a big 'ole diamond
    So I wrote down country songs as I went along
    Words that made for rhymin'
    
    I'll be singin' at the Ryman
    On that Grand Ole Opry stage
    I'll be singin' at the Ryman
    Songs about my younger days
    About pickup trucks and old guitars
    With those big 'ole country stars
    Yeah, I'll be singin' at the Ryman
    
    No more nickle and dimin'
    Big belt buckle with a big 'ole diamond
    
    I'll be singin' at the Ryman
    On that Grand Ole Opry stage
    I'll be singin' at the Ryman
    Songs about my younger days
    About pickup trucks and old guitars
    With those big 'ole country stars
    Yeah, I'll be singin' at the Ryman
    
    I'll be singin' at the Ryman Auditorium
    Yee Haw!
    
    Blue And Broken (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2006) (song#4045)
    
    Well, there's a man in the moon
    And he sure knows how to shine
    But tonight his shine has a bluish hue
    I wonder if that man in the moon
    Has a heart just like mine
    If he does, it's blue and broken in two
    
    Are you alone up there in heaven
    Not another heavenly body in sight
    Down here it's goin' on eleven
    And bein' alone just don't seem right
    
    Well, there's a man in the moon
    And he sure knows how to shine
    But tonight his shine has a bluish hue
    I wonder if that man in the moon
    Has a heart just like mine
    If he does, it's blue and broken in two
    
    Instrumental:
    
    You're up there beaming a smiling face
    For the whole wide world to see
    Guess I'll go on dreaming just in case
    My only love comes back to me
    
    Well, there's a man in the moon
    And he sure knows how to shine
    But tonight his shine has a bluish hue
    I wonder if that man in the moon
    Has a heart just like mine
    If he does, it's blue and broken in two
    
    You Ain't Right For Texas (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2006) (song#4046)
    
    He sauntered up to the bar stool
    And placed a boot up on the rail
    This cowboy sure did play it cool
    As any fool statewide could tell
    
    I tried to hold back my laughin'
    But he looked like he understood
    So, I asked him where he'd been
    Now tell me mister, if you would
    
    What's wrong is you ain't right for Texas
    Tell me, where'd you come from anyway
    What's wrong is you ain't right for Texas
    Wearin' jeans and boots and hat that way
    
    Take me, now I was born in Texas
    That's why Tex is home sweet home to me
    Raised on beef and corn in Texas
    We tip our hat with a great big How-dee
    
    What's wrong is you ain't right for Texas
    Tell me, where'd you come from anyway
    What's wrong is you ain't right for Texas
    Wearin' jeans and boots and hat that way
    
    Let me tell you how to dress for Texas
    Why are you wearin' them boots outside your jeans
    Cause down here we don't mess with Texas
    Less we're cookin' up a mess of turnip greens
    
    So put them cowboy boots inside your pants
    And get a big ole trash can buckle too
    And if you see any more New York transplants
    You can tell them the same as I told you
    
    What's wrong is you ain't right for Texas
    Tell me, where'd you come from anyway
    What's wrong is you ain't right for Texas
    Wearin' jeans and boots and hat that way
    
    What's wrong is you ain't right for Texas
    Wearin' jeans and boots and hat that way
    
    State Where I Was Raised (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2006) (song#4047)
    
    In the state where I was raised
    Beef on the grill is always braized
    Life and livin' is always praised
    In the state where I was raised
    
    Wade across Sweetwater Creek
    Climb Davis Mountain's peak
    Everything in Texas is unique
    In the state where I was raised
    
    In the state where I was raised
    Sometimes even I'm amazed
    Best songs are country phrased
    In the state where I was raised
    
    What I learned in a one room school
    Is all summed up in the Golden Rule
    Cowboys in Texas ain't so crazed
    In the state where I was raised
    The old barn dance on a Friday night
    Was full of cowgirls out of sight
    My hat was colored cowboy white
    In the state where I was raised
    
    In the state where I was raised
    Sometimes even I'm amazed
    Best songs are country phrased
    In the state where I was raised
    
    Some think it's a rattlesnake and cactus place
    But I've gotta tell ya that ain't the case
    There ain't nothing there that I'd replace
    In the state where I was raised
    In the state where I was raised
    
    Cowgirl Of The Plains (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2006) (song#4048)
    
    My horse is getting old and feeble
    And I can't ride him anymore
    I've hung my spurs and saddle up to rest
    I remember all my younger days
    And the ranges I explored
    Those old cattle days were all the best
    
    But I feel so satisfied
    When there comes the end of day
    As I look out at the sunshine or the rain
    For the only one I love
    Though her hair has turned to gray
    Is still the sweetest cowgirl of the plains
    
    I can see the changes at the ranch
    Most of the cattle are all gone
    Now I don't hear them lowing for the grain
    We used to go to the big barn dance
    And listen to the fiddle and dobro
    How I wish those memories were real again
    
    The hinges on the gate are rusting
    The corral is near to falling down
    And the leather is dried up on the reins
    Well, I can see the time is coming
    When me and my horse won't be around
    To ride and brand the cattle on the range
    
    But I feel so satisfied
    When there comes the end of day
    As I look out at the sunshine or the rain
    For the only one I love
    Though her hair has turned to gray
    Is still the sweetest cowgirl of the plains
    
    Rodeo Circuit (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2006) (song#4049)
    
    Well, I dialed the phone from San Antone
    I said my plans have all been changed
    Chances of winning have all been blown
    Since my bones have all been rearranged
    
    The doctor said my femur was pinned
    And he said the rodeo I should leave
    But I'm a dreamer of the wayward wind
    Though dreams are all that I'll receive
    
    Ridin' this rodeo circuit is a crime
    Don't pay nothin' but nickles and dimes
    But I'll ride the rodeo one more time
    For a dream that's only make believe
    
    I called old Cody up in Sheridan
    He was one that couldn't be outdone
    Lost his nerve on a bronco ride
    Said he quit just to save his hide
    
    Old Cody said things can change with time
    And it don't matter how hard you try
    The rodeo circuit is long hard hill to climb
    Better know when to quit before you die
    
    Ridin' this rodeo circuit is a crime
    Don't pay nothin' but nickles and dimes
    But I'll ride the rodeo one more time
    For a dream that's only make believe
    
    I Love You Sincerely (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2006) (song#4050)
    
    I love you sincerely, please be my bride
    Love won't disappear like outgoing tides
    Can't you see clearly that my love is true
    I love you sincerely, please say I do
    
    Just as the ocean runs wild and deep
    You have beguiled my dreams when I sleep
    Your every word I hold close to my heart
    Has it occured that from you I'll not part
    
    When I'm away do you think of me
    Today my heart is sorely in need
    I could be happy if you only knew
    That my only love is only for you
    
    Just as the ocean runs wild and deep
    You have beguiled my dreams when I sleep
    Your every word I hold close to my heart
    Has it occured that from you I'll not part
    
    I love you sincerely, please be my bride
    Love won't disappear like outgoing tides
    Can't you see clearly that my love is true
    I love you sincerely, please say I do
    
    Highway 59 (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2006) (song#4051)
    
    This rig I'm a-drivin' is rollin' mighty fine
    Still survivin' this old life on Highway 59
    It's a long way from Laredo to Canada
    I've seen it all seems like a hundred fifty times
    
    Rollin' up Highway 59 to the old Harris County line
    This Southwest Freeway has no sex appeal
    But I know I'll be home tonight when I see that big Eastex sign
    Where my sweet darlin's cookin' up my meal
    
    Coffee she'll have ready along with cowboy stew
    My Texas cowgirl has her kisses ready too
    I'm tired from drivin' but I'm feelin' mighty fine
    Rollin' toward a Texas rodeo up old Highway 59
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I've wrestled this old Peterbilt all the way from Laredo
    Black top and concrete and the goin's sometimes slow
    But when I hear that top gear whine, I just can't wait
    To unwind where love is fine in the Lone Star state
    
    Coffee she'll have ready along with cowboy stew
    My Texas cowgirl has her kisses ready too
    I'm tired from drivin' but I'm feelin' mighty fine
    Rollin' toward a Texas rodeo up old Highway 59
    
    High Lonesome Trail (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2006) (song#4052)
    
    I've always been a trailhand
    Never put my roots deep in the ground
    It's the only life I understand
    Movin' cows on to new pasture ground
    I know that soon I'll be leavin'
    Tell the folks don't send me any mail
    Even though some might be grievin'
    I hear callin' that High Lonesome trail
    
    That High Lonesome trail
    I hear it callin' out my name
    That High Lonesome trail
    It's callin' out to me again
    
    I left home when I was very young
    With a saddlebag and a song
    I feel like now the song's been sung
    Sometimes I feel like goin' home
    Maybe some day I'll find a way
    To quit movin' these cows around
    Til then I'll pay for every stray
    On this lonesome trail I've found
    
    That High Lonesome trail
    I hear it callin' out my name
    That High Lonesome trail
    It's callin' out to me again
    
    That High Lonesome trail
    I hear it callin' out my name
    
    Hummin' Along (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2006) (song#4053)
    
    Hummin' along, as the jukebox plays my song
    Hummin' along, in a honky tonk in San Antone
    Fingers tappin' the bar to the rhythm of my guitar
    Soon I'll be a star, just hummin' along
    
    The road ain't easy but the singin's fun
    The jukebox is playin' my number one
    Maybe my next one will be as strong
    I'll listen to the jukebox all night long  
    
    Hummin' along, as the jukebox plays my song
    Hummin' along, in a honky tonk in San Antone
    Fingers tappin' the bar to the rhythm of my guitar
    Soon I'll be a star, just hummin' along
    
    The road ain't easy but the singin's fun
    The mode I'm in is not to be outdone
    I'm gettin' ready for the next big show
    That gig is gonna pay off big, I know
    
    Hummin' along, as the jukebox plays my song
    Hummin' along, in a honky tonk in San Antone
    Fingers tappin' the bar to the rhythm of my guitar
    Soon I'll be a star, just hummin' along
    
    Trail Of Memories (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2006) (song#4054)
    
    When the moon is big and pale
    I ride that high and lonesome trail
    Oh, trail of memories
    
    Hooves galloping in their stride
    Saddlebags filled with dreams inside
    Oh, trail of memories
    I still hear her sad goodbye
    Ridin' down this trail of tears
    Memories that make me cry
    After all these lonely years 
    
    Oh, trail of memories
    This trail is one of pain
    A high and lonesome lane
    Oh, trail of memories
    
    Galloping through my mind
    Memories I thought were left behind
    I still hear her sad goodbye
    Ridin' down this trail of tears
    Memories that make me cry
    
    Oh, trail of memories
    Oh, here I ride that trail again
    Oh, I can't ride away the pain
    No matter where on this trail I ride
    Memories of you are by my side
    
    Oh, trail of memories
    Oh, trail of memories
    This high and lonesome trail of memories 
    
    Ride The Way The Trail Goes (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2006) (song#4055)
    
    Along the high Sierras
    Or down the valleys low
    Nature paints the pictures
    Of dreams of long ago
    
    Just like the blue skies darlin'
    Things were pretty in the past
    But dreams are blue now, darlin'
    Too bad they couldn't last
    
    Ride the way the trail goes
    Try to forget the tears I've cried
    There's no use to supppose
    That you'll be here by my side
    
    This trail has got me wonderin'
    Where does it lead from here
    Ride the way the trail goes
    On over to some new frontier
    
    The thing I remember darlin'
    Is the day I first saw you
    Love came drifting on the wind
    Like a dream out of the blue
    
    Springtime turned to winter
    And love drifted off one day
    I think I'll take this trail alone
    And ride my lonely blues away
    
    Ride the way the trail goes
    Try to forget the tears I've cried
    There's no use to supppose
    That you'll be here by my side
    
    Springtime turned to winter
    And love drifted off one day
    I think I'll take this trail alone
    And ride my lonely blues away
    
    Ride the way the trail goes
    Try to forget the tears I've cried
    
    Heart Of Folly (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2006) (song#4056)
    
    Heart of folly, why did you make me sad
    Heart of folly, you made me feel so bad
    And you're the only one that I can see
    Who would let love slip away so easily
    
    I remember words you spoke to me
    It takes some time for true love to see
    But when she appeared, you disappeared
    And I heard no more your wise decree
    
    Heart of folly, why did you make me sad
    Heart of folly, you made me feel so bad
    And you're the only one that I can see
    Who would let love slip away so easily
     
    Now she's long gone and I'm alone
    I begged her not to go but how could I know
    That she used me like a tool, just like a fool
    Her love was just a game, and by golly
    Heart of folly, you're to blame
    
    Heart of folly, why did you make me sad
    Heart of folly, you made me feel so bad
    And you're the only one that I can see
    Who would let love slip away so easily
    
    Heart of folly, you're to blame
    
    Written On The Wall (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2006) (song#4057)
    
    I see him standing there beside you
    But you can't see my teardrops fall
    And now my eyes are open wide to
    Words that are written on the wall
    
    Whe a cowboy gets that lonely feeling
    His boots are gonna walk the floor
    And thoughts will come a-stealing
    That you must not love me anymore
    
    I see him standing there beside you
    But you can't see my teardrops fall
    And now my eyes are open wide to
    Words that are written on the wall
    
    Yesterday we spent our time together
    Then you went and left me all alone
    So I guess I'll go although I'd rather
    Have you back here where you belong
    
    I see him standing there beside you
    But you can't see my teardrops fall
    And now my eyes are open wide to
    Words that are written on the wall
    Written on the wall
    Written on the wall
    
    His Reins (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2006) (song#4058)
    
    On a trail I hadn't rode before
    I went from sea to shining sea
    I didn't know the cowboy code
    And so I rode on aimlessly
    Drowsy in the saddle I was now
    The breeze was fair and warm
    Wakened by the wind on my brow
    I hadn't seen the coming storm
    
    I tried to turn my pony on the trail
    But the storm was blowing strong
    The night was cold with rain and hail
    I thought my hope was all but gone
    Then I remembered what mama said
    When your blue skies turn to gray
    Don't forget to pray and look ahead
    And you will surely find the way
    
    Take hold of His reins
    You'll feel no pains
    Somewhere down the trail
    Your hope won't fail
    Don't be afraid of the night
    There'll come a new day
    Be sure to do what's right
    And you will find the way
    
    My hands and feet were cold as ice
    From the trail I had strayed
    So then I took my mama's advice
    And in the saddle I stayed
    I found the warm valley and vale
    My wand'ring days are through
    Now if I ever stray from the trail 
    I'll listen to her words so true
    
    Take hold of His reins
    You'll feel no pains
    Somewhere down the trail
    Your hope won't fail
    Don't be afraid of the night
    There'll come a new day
    Be sure to do what's right
    And you will find the way
    
    Down In The Valley (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2006) (song#4059)
    
    As I ride through the valley down below
    Aspens turn to gold as far as I can see
    Then I remember when love was more than embers
    And I wonder if you still remember me
    
    Down in the valley, breezes blowin' free
    Remembering a love that used to be
    Down in the valley, ridin' all alone
    Wondering why love has up and flown
    
    I wonder if you wonder about me
    Or am I even in your memory
    I ride on through the breeze
    As it whispers through the Aspen trees
    The gold that shines against the blue
    Helps me to remember you
    
    Down in the valley, breezes blowin' free
    Remembering a love that used to be
    Down in the valley, ridin' all alone
    Wondering why love has up and flown
    
    I ride on through the breeze
    As it whispers through the Aspen trees
    The gold that shines against the blue
    Helps me to remember you
    
    Down in the valley, breezes blowin' free
    Remembering a love that used to be
    Down in the valley, ridin' all alone
    Wondering why love has up and flown
    
    Two Steppin' Strait (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2006) (song#4060)
    
    Last Saturday night, me and the band
    Did a show down at the Hotel Grand
    The manager said now don't be loud
    Cause they're a sophisticated crowd
    The women all wore flowing dresses
    Flowers were showing in their tresses
    But me and the band weren't so sedate
    We played 'em the best of old George Strait
    
    We sang a lot of good old Pure Country
    Like George did Live From The Astrodome
    We showed 'em The Road Less Travelled
    Don't know if that was Right Or Wrong
    They traded champagne for somethin' finer
    Like good old beer from the Lone Star state
    Soon we had 'em goin' like a Freightliner
    Strait Out Of The Box, by George, they were two-steppin' Strait
    
    They rolled away that Steinway grand piano
    Rolled up that burgandy carpet off the floor
    We showed 'em how to tie a Red Bandana
    Yelled Honk If You Honky Tonk some more
    Those women in their flowing dresses
    Became cowgirls Somewhere Down In Texas
    They were Livin' It Up, One Step At A Time
    Don't know if Fort Worth ever Crossed Their Mind
    
    We sang a lot of good old Pure Country
    Like George did Live From The Astrodome
    We showed 'em The Road Less Travelled
    Don't know if that was Right Or Wrong
    They traded champagne for somethin' finer
    Like good old beer from the Lone Star state
    Soon we had 'em goin' like a Freightliner
    Strait Out Of The Box, by George, they were two-steppin' Strait
    
    Cody (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2006) (song#4061)
    
    Cody was a roaming cowboy
    He knew every trail around
    Seems he was bound to destroy
    Any friend that he had found
    And it's a long old ride without her by his side
    
    A few years back he left town
    Headed for the wild west trail
    No one could ever whittle down
    Young Cody by gun or nail
    And it's a long old ride without her by his side
    
    But in the chill of the desert night
    Cody could only dream of holding her tight
    
    He panned for the gold in California
    And thought of her golden hair
    The girl that Cody had left behind
    Somehow seemed to be always there
    And it's a long old ride without her by his side
    
    Now I know you all want a happy ending
    About young Cody and his would be bride
    But some fences just aren't for mending
    Especially now that cowboy Cody died
    
    At a little gathering in the valley
    The folks laid him in repose
    Cody had reached his finale
    And a woman nobody knows
    Came and laid a final rose
    It was a long old ride without her by his side
    
    Cody was a roaming cowboy
    
    Painted Pony (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2006) (song#4062)
    
    There's a drawing hanging on the wall
    I placed it there by design
    You gave it to me when we were small
    Your ranch was right next to mine
    
    You'd come over when the snow would fall
    And you and I would then play
    You didn't know I loved you at all
    I will 'til my dying day
    
    (instrumental)
    
    The brand new coloring book we shared
    Had colors of the rainbow
    You colored a pony and I knew you cared
    As we watched the falling snow
    
    I'd ride my painted pony in dreams
    Over to your ranch I'd go
    I still remember crossing the stream
    A kiss on you I'd bestow
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I'd ride my painted pony in dreams
    Over to your ranch I'd go
    I still remember crossing the stream
    A kiss on you I'd bestow
    
    Now that stream has washed my dreams away
    Gone like hoofprints in the sands of time
    The ranch next door is a field of clay
    Your painted pony's a dream of mine 
    
    Old Pards (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2006) (song#4063)
    
    Old Pards
    Throwin' horseshoes by the corral
    Watchin' broncos on the chapparral
    Old pards
    Sure can't beat old pards
    
    Old pards
    Sharin' memories of their true loves
    Faithful when push comes to shove
    Old pards
    Never can beat old pards
    
    Old pards
    Keepin' a watch on the western sky
    Each one on the other they'll rely
    Old pards
    You'll never beat old pards
    
    Old pards
    Before my life is at its very end
    I want a friend on which to depend
    Old pards
    Let me have just one old pard, my friend
    
    Cowboys Like It That Way (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2006) (song#4064)
    
    I've written country songs and I've been around
    To all the honky tonks filled with country sounds
    I've seen 'em dance to about every country style
    But what is it that really makes a cowboy smile
    
    A cowboy likes sad songs about cowgirls' goodbyes
    Those old broken hearted songs with tear filled eyes
    A cowboy likes sad songs about the one that got away
    That's why I write sad songs, cowboys like it that way
    
    The honky tonks fill up early at the end of day
    They stay late just to hear the songs I write played
    They don't know how I feel inside, cryin' over you
    They just smile and tell me write another one or two
    
    A cowboy likes sad songs about cowgirls' goodbyes
    Those old broken hearted songs with tear filled eyes
    A cowboy likes sad songs about the one that got away
    That's why I write sad songs, cowboys like it that way
     
    The bartender, he told me, things sure are goin' well
    Then he smiled at me and I think that he could tell
    The songs I write are the ones that made the grade
    Sad as they are, about cowboys that have paid
    
    A cowboy likes sad songs about cowgirls' goodbyes
    Those old broken hearted songs with tear filled eyes
    A cowboy likes sad songs about the one that got away
    That's why I write sad songs, cowboys like it that way
    
    Ridin' Back To San Antone (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2006) (song#4065)
    
    Well, they held a meetin' down in Central Park
    Everyone I was greetin' was a ventral fin shark
    
    I'm leavin' today, I'm ridin' back to San Antone
    
    All these Yankees sure can be a pain
    Eatin' Buffalo Wings and drinkin' champagne
    
    I'm leavin' today, I'm ridin' back to San Antone
    
    Now some say New York livin' is the spice of life
    But the only givin' I got was a switch blade knife
    
    I'm leavin' today, I'm ridin' back to San Antone
    
    One had the muscle and had me on the deck
    I had to hustle or my life would-a been-a wreck
    
    I'm leavin' today, I'm ridin' back to San Antone
    
    Now here comes Jane down the boardwalk
    Jane's insane but she wants to talk
    Hello Jane, how do you do
    I'll make it plain, I'm through with you
    
    Now come on Jane, don't make me cry
    I was hopin' you came to say goodbye
    
    I'm ready to leave for parts unknown
    I'll never grieve back in San Antone
    
    I'm ridin' back to San Antone !
    
    Red River Valley Blues (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2006) (song#4066)
    
    I was a young cowboy just in my prime
    When I left that Texas - Oklahoma line
    I rode away for my good fortune to find
    Now all I do is pine for that Red River line
    
    I've got the Red River Valley blues
    And the only thing I've got to say
    My saddlebags are packed and I'm ridin' back
    To that Red River Valley far away
    
    I'm gonna stay on that Valley ranch
    I'm gonna fish in that little branch
    I'll do right by dear Mom and Pa
    After all, that's the cowboy law
    
    I've got the Red River Valley blues
    I'll be ridin' night and day
    Gonna climb those Valley hills, practice cowboy skills
    In that Red River Valley far away
    
    I see the ranch house in the dimming light
    There's Ma and Pa with their hair of white
    All our hearts will be filled with full delight
    A roaming cowboy's comin' home tonight
    
    I've got the Red River Valley blues
    But now I'm back in Texas to stay
    I've no fortune to lose, just these blues
    From this Red River Valley I'll never more stray
    
    My Texarkana Darling (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2006) (song#4067)
    
    I met her up in Texarkana
    Underneath that Texas moon
    Not far from Louisiana
    Her heart and mine in tune
    
    I tried to see her next morning
    Wanted to call her my very own
    Now I pine for my Texarkana darling
    She went and left me all alone
    
    Oh, moon over Texarkana
    Shine over Texas clover with your light
    Oh, moon over Texarkana
    Where is my Texarkana darling tonight
    
    Beam down upon her my love
    Let her know I'll never go away
    I'm waiting for my Texarkana dove
    Begging that she'll return some day
    
    Oh, moon over Texarkana
    Shine over Texas clover with your light
    Oh, moon over Texarkana
    Where is my Texarkana darling tonight
    
    Walkin' In Hank Williams Shoes (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2006) (song#4068)
    
    There's never been country music
    Like Hank Williams used to play
    And I guess that's why I still pick
    Hank's kind of music to this day
    
    The words that Hank put his pen to
    Were about lost love and blues
    No wonder the places I've been to
    Got me walkin' in Hank Williams shoes
    
    Romance would always play a part
    Even though it was a cheatin' heart
    Honky tonk blues and broken dreams
    Were infused in his song's themes
    
    Every time I put Hank's records on
    They seem to give me another clue
    As to why it is that I am drawn
    To walkin' in Hank Williams shoes
    
    Now as I travel with my band
    I think that somehow I can see
    Something about his writing hand
    Wrote some of those songs of me
    
    Hank sang about the common man
    The way of life that some men choose
    And tonight that's why I understand
    I'm walkin' in Hank Williams shoes
    
    Western Desert Breeze (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2006) (song#4069)
    
    I hear the western desert breeze
    It's blowing through the mesquite trees
    Whispers of love from long ago
    Dreams that grew as in a garden
    Of promises that might have been
    Whispers of love I used to know
    
    Mesquite branches, they are swinging
    I can hear the breezes singing
    Of how the purple sage does grow
    I hear the western desert breeze
    It's blowing through the mesquite trees
    Whispers of love from long ago
    
    (instrumental)
    
    My life has been filled with good things
    Where western desert breezes blow
    But I wish there had been gold rings
    And vows between a bride and beau
    
    I hear the western desert breeze
    It's blowing through the mesquite trees
    Whispers of love from long ago
    Dreams that grew as in a garden
    Of promises that might have been
    Whispers of love I used to know
    
    Drifter Of The Plains (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2006) (song#4070)
    
    A 44's in my holster
    I'm on a horse that's good to ride
    Pardon me when he feels the spur
    I'm goin' to ride o'er the Great Divide
     
    Pardner, I have been a rover
    Through darkest storms and wind and rain
    Well now, you can look me over
    I'm just a drifter of the plains
     
    Yeah, I'm a drifter of the plains
    Oh, I'm a drifter of the plains
    I'm goin' to ride o'er the Great Divide
    I'm just a drifter of the plains
     
    (instrumental)
     
    Now, my Mama's back in Texas
    And my lost love is back there too
    Gonna ride o'er the Great Divide
    Where I'll be searchin' for a dream that's new
     
    I worked to make that girl my bride
    She left me waitin' at her door
    Gonna ride o'er the Great Divide
    Cause I ain't gonna wait for her no more
     
    (instrumental)
     
    Now, every cowboy has his pride
    I guess it just runs in his veins
    Gonna ride o'er the Great Divide
    I'm just a drifter of the plains
     
    Yeah, I'm a drifter of the plains
    Oh, I'm a drifter of the plains
    I'm goin' to ride o'er the Great Divide
    I'm just a drifter of the plains
    
    Old Wooden Nickle (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2006) (song#4071)
    
    I'm feelin' like an old wooden nickel
    Tossed by the side of the road
    I guess I'm just good 'n pickled
    Lost with no new love to hold
    
    I guess nobody sees me cry
    Folks won't even give me the time
    Cause they just stroll on by
    I feel like I ain't worth a dime
    
    But I'm an Indian chieftain
    And I own a big 'ol buffalo
    This chief's second to none
    With a heart of pure gold
    
    I'd bring fortune to anyone; I could, you see
    To anyone who valued an old wooden nickel like me
    
    I guess nobody sees me cry
    Folks won't even give me the time
    Cause they just stroll on by
    I feel like I ain't worth a dime
    
    But I'm an Indian chieftain
    And I own a big 'ol buffalo
    This chief's second to none
    With a heart of pure gold
    
    Cow Puncher Blues (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2006) (song#4072)
    
    Well, I'm an old cow puncher
    I'm punchin' those longhorn cows all day
    I'm an old cow puncher
    I'm punchin' those longhorn cows all day
    I got a mean old trail boss
    Can't wait to draw my pay
    
    Well, I punch those longhorns, baby
    Til that Texas sun goes down
    Yeah, I punch those longhorns, baby
    Til that Texas sun goes down
    But I'm ridin' out now honey
    Gonna take my sweet baby to town
    
    Well, these old cow puncher blues
    Feel like I got 'em all the time
    Yeah, these old cow puncher blues
    Feel like I got 'em all the time
    But I'm gonna see my sweet Texas baby
    Get these old cow punchin' blues off my mind
    
    Well, I'm an old cow puncher
    I'm punchin' those longhorn cows all day
    I'm an old cow puncher
    I'm punchin' those longhorn cows all day
    I got a mean old trail boss
    Can't wait to draw my pay
    
    Raised On Eternal Love (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2006) (song#4073)
    
    With a diamond on a golden band
    I placed the ring in her little hand
    And told her that my love was true
    So, we talked about a wedding day
    Then she looked at me that way
    And asked if we could make it through
    I said my Mama and my Daddy did
    And you're lookin' at one of their kids
    
    Our family was raised on eternal love
    We're not the quitin' kind
    And in my heart for you is eternal love
    Say that you'll be mine
    
    Well, that was a number of years ago
    Now our own son into a man has grown
    He went and bought a golden band too
    And yesterday he called me on the phone
    He asked, Dad do you think I can
    See this through under heaven above
    I said, son you'll be a happy man
    Cause you were raised on eternal love
    
    You were raised on eternal love
    And you're not the quitin' kind
    In your heart you'll find eternal love
    Your marriage will be just fine
    Our family was raised on eternal love
    And you're a part of a family of love
    
    Cowboy Philosophy (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2006) (song#4074)
    
    Well, if you're lookin' for a hero
    You can ride from here to there
    And one thing you'll find, I know
    It's the badge real cowboys wear
    
    Here's some cowboy philosophy
    Straight from the horse's mouth
    Pardner, you can take it from me
    If things seem to be headin' south
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it's dead, deep-six it
    But if you fall in love with a cowgirl
    You must treat her like a precious pearl
    
    That's cowboy philosophy, the way it's got to be
    The truth is in his song, it's either right or wrong
    That's cowboy philosophy, the way it's got to be
    If the cattle stampede, then chase 'em
    If they're a contrary breed, just face 'em
    And if you get thrown down in the dirt
    Get up and dust off your cowboy shirt
    
    That's cowboy philosophy, the way it's got to be
    The truth is in his song, it's either right or wrong
    That's cowboy philosophy, the way it's got to be
    
     Happy Trails Are Here Again (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2006) (song#4075)
    
    Happy trails are here again
    Like the ones we rode back when
    Happy trails are here again
    It's good to see old pals again
    
    When we rode the trails together
    We sang a happy cowboy song
    We didn't worry 'bout the weather
    As the cattle we moved along
    
    Happy trails are here again
    Like the ones we rode back when
    The trails we rode, me and you
    Most were happy, a few were blue
    But all that mattered when they were through
    Was that we were pals through and through
    
    When we rode the trails together
    We sang a happy cowboy song
    We didn't worry 'bout the weather
    As the cattle we moved along
    
    Happy trails are here again
    Like the ones we rode back when
    Happy trails are here again
    It's good to see you, old pal, once again
    
    King Of Spades (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2006) (song#4076)
    
    King of spades, King of spades
    Now look at the hand you've played
    My poor pockets are empty
    Of any silver or gold I've ever made
    
    Hardtack bread for my stomach
    And cheap whiskey spins my head
    Feel like I'm light'nin' struck
    Maybe I'll be better when I'm dead
    
    Cheap whiskey and wine
    King of spades made you mine
    Cheap whiskey and wine
    When will I see you one more time
    
    Hardtack bread for my stomach
    And cheap whiskey spins my head
    Feel like I'm light'nin' struck
    Maybe I'll be better when I'm dead
    
    King of spades, King of spades
    Now look at the hand you've played
    My poor pockets are empty
    Of any silver or gold I've ever made
    
    Wild Mesa Ponies (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2006) (song#4077)
    
    Somewhere out on the western range
    Just west of the mighty Rio Grande
    They tell of a cowboy known for fame
    And the wild mesa ponies he'd command
    
    He talked to the ponies that he would ride
    Told them not to worry about their hide
    Upon the ponies' backs he would slide
    To run with the wind o're the Great Divide
    
    When thunder rolled in the stormy distance
    The wild mesa ponies' eyes would flame
    Running like the wind was their insistence
    And upon their back, the cowboy of fame
    
    He talked to the ponies that he would ride
    Told them not to worry about their hide
    Upon the ponies' backs he would slide
    To run with the wind o're the Great Divide
    
    Indian Summer (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2006) (song#4078)
    
    If only Indian summer would stay here longer
    If only the cold of winter I could suspend
    If only old cowboys wouldn't move so far along
    I'd ride with them in Indian summer once again
    
    But the cold of Winter replaces Indian summer
    And old cowboys just take it on the chin
    Maybe next year when comes the old cowboys
    I'll ride with them in Indian summer once again
    
    For now I'll just say adios 'til they return
    Hold these words close, for cowboys learn
    When it's time to part, loyalty goes along
    It won't depart, for cowboy's hearts are strong
    
    But the cold of Winter replaces Indian summer
    And old cowboys just take it on the chin
    Maybe next year when comes the old cowboys
    I'll ride with them in Indian summer once again
    
    Maybe next year when comes the old cowboys
    I'll ride with them in Indian summer once again
    
    For Another You Love (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2006) (song#4079)
    
    When I saw your face darlin'
    You couldn't erase what it said
    You looked so happy darlin'
    Why'd you go and choose another instead
    
    I see the face of an angel
    With a halo from above
    And there's no trace of regret
    For another you love
    
    Remember when you said, darlin'
    No one could ever take my place
    Well, now I wonder darlin'
    About that new glow on your face
    
    I see the face of an angel
    With a halo from above
    And there's no trace of regret
    For another you love
    
    I remember the sparkle I saw in your eyes
    When you said we'd be wed in time
    Now it's remarkable how time has told lies
    Go ahead and break this heart of mine
    
    I see the face of an angel
    With a halo from above
    And there's no trace of regret
    For another you love
    
    Ranch House On The Range (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2006) (song#4080)
    
    Where the Colorado's flowing
    And the buffalo treads its shore
    Where the purple sage is blooming
    There's nothing that I love more
    And there's nothing I would change
    In that ranch house on the range
    
    Oh, I rode the trail up north
    Seeking my fortune for to find
    I saw money, a ransom's worth
    Growing on trees in my mind
    But as sweet Betsy told me
    Happiness I would not find
    The winter was so cold, you see
    A cowboy could freeze in time
    
    So, I'm ridin' back along that trail
    Back to that ranch I love so well
    With sweet Betsy I'll exchange
    Promises and words that I'll avow
    I loved her then and love her now
    In that ranch house on the range
    
    Where the Colorado's flowing
    And the buffalo treads its shore
    Where the purple sage is blooming
    There's nothing that I love more
    And there's nothing I would change
    In that ranch house on the range
    
    With sweet Betsy I'll exchange
    Promises and words that I'll avow
    I loved her then and love her now
    In that ranch house on the range
    
    Old Lonesome Trail (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2006) (song#4081)
    
    I know a trail that cowboys ride
    To drive their worries away
    It's that same old lonesome trail
    That I'm ridin' on today
    
    I used to own a dream or two
    But they only brought me tears
    A cowboy groans and feels blue
    When a love just disappears
    
    Ridin' down this lonesome trail
    Where brokenhearted cowboys ride
    Ridin' down this lonesome trail
    Wishin' she was still here by my side
    
    I used to own a dream or two
    But they only brought me tears
    A cowboy groans and feels blue
    When a love just disappears
    
    Along this trail of broken dreams
    The cowboy's song is of regret
    As I ride along this lonesome trail
    Maybe I'll forget
    As I ride along this lonesome trail
    Maybe I'll forget
    
    Don't Try To Rein Me In (Larry W. Jones 10/20/2006) (song#4082)
    
    Listen to the wind blowin' free across the plains
    That's the way it's been for cowboys with no chains
    And of that lonesome wind, I am next of kin
    Don't try to rein me in
    
    Let my pony set the pace across the wide open space
    Where the lonely coyotes cry
    On my pony I'll wander where the air is fresh and rare
    Underneath the western sky
    
    I'll ride across the plains to the majestic mountain range
    Where the beauty never seems to change
    For I can't stand the city and places that aren't pretty
    Don't try to rein me in
    
    Listen to the wind blowin' free across the plains
    That's the way it's been for cowboys with no chains
    
    Let my pony set the pace across the wide open space
    Where the lonely coyotes cry
    On my pony I'll wander where the air is fresh and rare
    Underneath the western sky
    
    I'll ride across the plains to the majestic mountain range
    Where the beauty never seems to change
    For I can't stand the city and places that aren't pretty
    Don't try to rein me in
    
    Sweet Darlin' (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2006) (song#4083)
    
    I was a clown, I let you down, sweet darlin'
    Words that bring  the tears that sting your face
    I brought you pain, I'm to blame, sweet darlin'
    And I've lost a love I know I can't replace
    
    Now I plead, please sweet darlin'
    Can you forgive the things I'm guilty of
    My heart is down and in these tears I'll drown
    Sweet darlin', you're the only one I love
    
    I brought you pain, I'm to blame, sweet darlin'
    And I've lost a love I know I can't replace
    
    Now I plead, please sweet darlin'
    Can you forgive the things I'm guilty of
    My heart is down and in these tears I'll drown
    Sweet darlin', you're the only one I love
    
    Sweet darlin', you're the only one I love
    
    Purple Sage Cowboy (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2006) (song#4084)
    
    Texas moon keep shining bright
    Up in that Texas sky above
    Some day soon that Texas moon just might
    Light the trail back to the one you love
    
    Purple sage cowboy
    It's time to close your eyes and dream
    The cattle are dry and bedded down
    Stars in the sky are spread around
    It's time to close your eyes and dream
    Of that home corral and your sweet gal
    
    Purple sage cowboy
    Listen to the breeze in cottonwood trees above
    Purple sage cowboy
    Hear the longhorn cattle as they low
    Don't think about the trail and all its woe
    It's time to dream of that sweet gal you love
    
    Purple sage cowboy
    It's time to dream of that sweet gal you love
    
    Breakin' Horses With A Broken Heart (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2006) (song#4085)
    
    That cowboy's broken one too many
    And he brags a little too much out loud
    He thinks he's still a cowboy of twenty
    And I'll admit he still wows the crowd
    But I can see the clouds that brand him
    And I know they don't understand him
    
    He's breakin' horses with a broken heart
    Searchin' for a dream in a two bit rodeo
    He won't admit that he should let her go
    He's a cowboy breakin' horses with a broken heart 
    
    He's still the center of attention
    Every time the rodeo comes around
    But I noticed he never mentions
    The reason why his tears come down
    There's a cowgirl out there somewhere
    That's in every broken hearted cowboy's prayer
    
    He's breakin' horses with a broken heart
    Searchin' for a dream in a two bit rodeo
    He won't admit that he should let her go
    He's a cowboy breakin' horses with a broken heart
    
    A lonesome cowboy breakin' horses with a broken heart
    
    Lost Trail Of Pain (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2006) (song#4086)
    
    There's a lost trail of pain that leads
    Over the plains of the tumbleweeds
    And where the wild Colorado flows
    I've been on that trail too long
    But it's too late for headin' home
    Guess I'll follow the trail to Mexico
    
    Oh, lost trail of pain, I'm ridin' you again
    Away from where the firewood's stacked
    At that warm ranch house so far back
    Why sunshine turns to rain, it's hard to explain
    
    There's a lost trail of pain that leads
    Over the plains of the tumbleweeds
    And where the wild Colorado flows
    I've burned the bridges that I've crossed
    Along the ridges where dreams are lost
    Guess I'll follow the trail to Mexico
    
    Oh, lost trail of pain, I'm ridin' you again
    It's too hard to fight against the stream
    I can't rebuild those bridges
    Can't find the ridges where I lost my dreams
    
    There's a lost trail of pain that leads
    Over the plains of the tumbleweeds
    And where the wild Colorado flows
    I've been on that trail too long
    But it's too late for headin' home
    Guess I'll follow the trail to Mexico
    
    Out On The Old Trail Again (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2006) (song#4087)
    
    Out on the old trail again
    Facing the longhorns and the wind
    Where the newborn dogies run in the hot west Texas sun
    I'm out on the old trail again
    
    Driving the herd once again
    Singing cowboy songs with my friends
    While the cattle sleep at night and all the world seems right
    I'm out on the old trail again
    
    No matter where I go, it's paradise I know
    Out on the old trail again
    The lonesome cowboy's way is my only pay
    Out on the old trail again
    
    Out on the old trail again
    Facing the longhorns and the wind
    Where the newborn dogies run in the hot west Texas sun
    I'm out on the old trail again
    
    Driving the herd once again
    Singing cowboy songs with my friends
    While the cattle sleep at night and all the world seems right
    I'm out on the old trail again
    
    No matter where I go, it's paradise I know
    Out on the old trail again
    The lonesome cowboy's way is my only pay
    Out on the old trail again
    
    Pony Express (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2006) (song#4088)
    
    Here he comes, California or bust
    There he goes, kickin' up dust
    Watch him fly, give you one guess
    Wave him bye, bye, bye, the Pony Express
    
    Let him go, 'cross the mountain stream
    Hail or snow, he's part of the team
    Like the wind, that I'll confess
    California bound, he's the Pony Express
    
    Fast pony rider, you got hills to climb
    Pony's a strider, he'll be there on time
    The way he rides, it's like finesse
    Watch him fly, fly, fly, the Pony Express
    
    Watch him swerve, along the trail
    He's got nerve, and tales to tell
    Watch him go, no way to supress
    The legend will grow, of the Pony Express
    
    Alone And Lonesome Over You (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2006) (song#4089)
    
    Alone and lonesome, friends are few
    Where's that true love that I once knew
    Mem'ries creeping in dreams I'm keeping
    I'm so alone and lonesome over you
    
    Do you remember, the way I do
    That warm September, just we two
    You crossed your heart, dear, we'd never part, dear
    I'm so alone and lonesome over you
    
    Alone and lonesome, you left me blue
    Why'd you have to go and say adieu
    I beg for your return, dear, for you I yearn, dear
    I'm so alone and lonesome over you
    
    Do you remember, the way I do
    That warm September, just we two
    You crossed your heart, dear, we'd never part, dear
    I'm so alone and lonesome over you
    
    Alone and lonesome, you left me blue
    Why'd you have to go and say adieu
    I beg for your return, dear, for you I yearn, dear
    I'm so alone and lonesome over you
    
    Rock-Ola Lola (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2006) (song#4090)
    
    There's an old Rock-Ola in the corner
    Playing songs sung for a dying mourner
    Sweet Lola's gone and left me here behind
    And I can't get Rock-Ola Lola off my mind
    
    I keep feeding it quarters, nickles and dimes
    I lost count after at least a hundred times
    When Lola said goodbye, it was like a crime
    And I can't get Rock-Ola Lola off my mind
    
    Hank just sang about a tear in his beer
    I'll be dang if there ain't plenty of 'em here
    And Lola's just about to drive me insane
    Here I am playing this old Rock-Ola again
    
    There's an old Rock-Ola in the corner
    Playing songs sung for a dying mourner
    
    I keep feeding it quarters, nickles and dimes
    I lost count after at least a hundred times
    When Lola said goodbye, it was like a crime
    And I can't get Rock-Ola Lola off my mind
    
    I keep feeding it quarters, nickles and dimes
    I lost count after at least a hundred times
    When Lola said goodbye, it was like a crime
    And I can't get Rock-Ola Lola off my mind
    
    My Dreams Will Follow You (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2006) (song#4091)
    
    Take your bonnet, dress your best
    Take the stagecoach headin' west
    My dreams will follow you
    My dreams will follow you
    
    Try to find a place in Frisco town
    You'll see my face hangin' round
    My dreams will follow you
    My dreams will follow you
    
    My dreams will follow you along the trail
    You can't hide behind your silken veil
    Wherever you may dwell
    
    So, close the door and latch the handle
    You're still my match and my candle 
    My dreams will follow you
    My dreams will follow you
    
    My dreams will follow you along the trail
    You can't hide behind your silken veil
    Wherever you may dwell
    
    When you get to California
    If you change your mind
    Remember that I'm not the kind
    To have an axe to grind
    
    So, close the door and latch the handle
    You're still my match and my candle 
    My dreams will follow you
    My dreams will follow you
    
    Trails Of Yesterday (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2006) (song#4092)
    
    Sometimes when I'm alone all by myself
    Mem'ries that I thought were gone
    I take down off the shelf
    Trails of yesterday call again to me
    Trails of yesterday call again to me
    
    Sometimes when I turn on the radio
    They play an old cowboy song I used to know
    From Jimmy Rodgers or old Hank Snow
    Trails of yesterday call again to me
    Trails of yesterday call again to me
    
    When I see the Texas moon over purple sage at night
    When I smell the honeysuckle on the breeze
    It's then that I remember with delight
    Trails of yesterday call again to me
    Trails of yesterday call again to me
    
    When I see old cowboys at the county rodeo
    They remind me of the way things used to be
    When life was simple back so long ago
    Trails of yesterday call again to me
    Trails of yesterday call again to me
    
    Real Singin' Cowboys (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2006) (song#4093)
    
    Headin' south down to Waco
    Where the waters of the Brazos flow
    Maybe on down to old Houston town
    That's where I'm gonna go
    There's something about the way
    Texas still has real cowboys around
    I'm going back down there today
    To hear that old time cowboy sound
    
    Bring the real singin' cowboys back
    When coal locomotives ran the tracks
    Real country music's fallin' through the cracks
    Bring the real singin' cowboys back
    
    Bring the real singin' cowboys back
    Back home in Texas is where it's at
    Texas still has cowboy songs like that
    Bring the real singin' cowboys back
    
    New York has the lights and limos
    But the music is as cold as eskimos
    Goin' back to hear that cowboy sound
    The music's dear and I'm Texas bound
    Real cowboy music just feels right
    Hats were white and they spoke polite
    Good cowboy music is the real McCoy
    It's the only kind for this Texas boy
    
    Bring the real singin' cowboys back
    When coal locomotives ran the tracks
    Real country music's fallin' through the cracks
    Bring the real singin' cowboys back
    
    Bring the real singin' cowboys back
    When coal locomotives ran the tracks
    Real country music's fallin' through the cracks
    Bring the real singin' cowboys back
    
    Petals From A Rose (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2006) (song#4094)
    
    I'm sending you the petals from a rose, dear
    One at a time to remind you of my broken heart
    Your vow of love that I recall has gone, dear
    And now I feel the fall of lonely teardrops start
    
    I heard you say that you'd be true, dear
    And I said to you that I would do my part
    I'm sending you the petals from a rose, dear
    One at a time to remind you of my broken heart
    
    I tried every avenue that I could think of
    To keep you right here by my side
    But the avenue that you strolled down, love
    Is not the one where true love can reside
    
    I'm sending you the petals from a rose, dear
    One at a time to remind you of my broken heart
    
    How many times I tried to forgive you
    With all the words a love song can compose
    Now the only things that I can give you
    Are the broken petals from a dying rose
    
    I'm sending you the petals from a rose, dear
    One at a time to remind you of my broken heart
    
    Over And Done (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2006) (song#4095)
    
    Friends ask me why I'm so downhearted
    They ask me if I've heard from you
    They want to know why it is we parted
    I just say that you found someone new
    
    And then I say, It's not so bad
    Tomorrow I'll go out and have some fun
    Tomorrow I'll not feel so sad
    I just say the blues are over and done
    
    The blues came over yesterday morning
    And they stayed until last night was done 
    But I just tell them that I'm not mourning
    I just say the blues are over and done
    
    Some of my old friends forsook me
    They no longer come around
    How happy can an empty book be
    When the pages come unbound
    
    And then I say, It's not so bad
    Tomorrow I'll go out and have some fun
    Tomorrow I'll not feel so sad
    I just say the blues are over and done
    
    The blues came over yesterday morning
    And they stayed until last night was done 
    But I just tell them that I'm not mourning
    I just say the blues are over and done
    
    First Word In Lonesome (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2006) (song#4096)
    
    The first word in lonesome is lone-ly
    That's what the mockingbird sang to me
    Like the tick-tocking of the cuckoo clock
    The first word in lonesome is lone-ly me
    
    True love, as they say, is the only real love
    But for some it can be a lonely quest, I see
    I guess my his'try will start with words hereof
    The first word in lonesome is lone-ly me
    
    The first word in lonesome is lone-ly
    That's what the mockingbird sang to me
    Like the tick-tocking of the cuckoo clock
    The first word in lonesome is lone-ly me
    
    The first word in lonesome is lone-ly
    The first word in lonesome is lone-ly me
    
    Many Years Ago (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2006) (song#4097)
    
    Many years ago I told you that I love you
    When you placed your little hand in mine
    Through the many years you've loved me too
    You have always been my warm sunshine
    
    Many years ago we built a castle
    With walls so strong they never fell apart
    Love withstood every kind of hassle
    And our life is still a lovely work of art
    
    Many years ago I knew, dear
    That life would bring its big and heavy loads
    And if it were not for you, dear
    I could not have walked life's bumpy roads
    
    Before you came I used to walk the floor
    The flame of love I truly didn't know
    But you came and opened up love's door
    And it's the same as many years ago 
    
    Many years ago I called you sweetheart
    And I still call you sweetheart now
    When you're in my arms, the feeling starts
    Just like the day we said our vows
    
    Many years ago in the Springtime
    I gave to you a sweet bouquet
    Loving you has been the sweetest time
    Many years ago just like today
    
    Sweet Annie (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2006) (song#4098)
    
    I see sweet Annie in the Summer sunshine
    I see my darlin' in the Aspen leaves of Fall
    I see sweet Annie in Winter and Springtime
    And her name I hear in every starling's call
    
    I've told the eagle in the pine tree
    I've told the new-born dogies running 'round
    Now I've got to tell my sweet Annie 
    That she's the sweetest girl I've ever found
    
    My dreams will die if she doesn't say
    That she'll be mine faithfully
    I've got to ask her this very day
    If she'll be mine eternally
    
    I've told the eagle in the pine tree
    I've told the new-born dogies running 'round
    Now I've got to tell my sweet Annie 
    That she's the sweetest girl I've ever found
    
    I see sweet Annie in the Summer sunshine
    I see my darlin' in the Aspen leaves of Fall
    I see sweet Annie in Winter and Springtime
    And her name I hear in every starling's call
    
    I've told the eagle in the pine tree
    I've told the new-born dogies running 'round
    Now I've got to tell my sweet Annie 
    That she's the sweetest girl I've ever found
    
    Palomino Pal Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2006) (song#4099)
    
    Now, there's a pasture somewhere down the trail
    Not too far away
    That you and I will come to without fail
    One of these fine days
    And these reins that I've had to place on you
    I will soon unwind
    And then you'll run free under skies of blue
    Palomino pal of mine
    
    You can go at an easy trot
    And maybe walk if you feel lame
    No need to give it all you've got
    No need to have a flyin' mane
    
    Yes, there's a pasture under western stars
    Not too far away
    In a big valley with no corral bars
    And it's there you'll play
    I'll watch you run o'er hill and over dale
    Pal, you'll do just fine
    In that big pasture somewhere down the trail
    Palomino pal of mine
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Not too far away, not too far away
    We'll find that green pasture one of these days
    You can say hello to your long lost friends
    You won't need a bridle or horseshoe nail
    The rest of your well earned days you can spend
    In that fine pasture somewhere down the trail
    
    I'll watch you run o'er hill and over dale
    Pal, you'll do just fine
    In that big pasture somewhere down the trail
    Palomino pal of mine
    
    Old Pecos Moon (Larry W. Jones 10/29/2006) (song#4100)
    
    For that little western stream I'm pining
    Out in west Texas far away
    And for that old Pecos moon that's shining
    I'm headin' back to west Texas today
    
    Old Pecos moon, I'm lonesome
    Old Pecos moon, I'm blue
    I'm pining for that little stream that's winding
    West Texas, I'm headin' back to you
    
    Tell the old cowhands that I'm lonesome
    To hear their old cowboy tunes
    Back to west Texas I'm ridin' my thumb
    Underneath that old Pecos moon
    
    Tell the old cowhands that I'm lonesome
    To hear their old cowboy tunes
    Back to west Texas I'm ridin' my thumb
    Underneath that old Pecos moon
    
    Scarlet Rose (Larry W. Jones 10/29/2006) (song#4101)
    
    As I lie beside the trail so weary
    The only reason I have to grieve
    I'm thinkin' of my darlin' cheery
    Knowin' that forever her I'll leave
    
    This scarlet rose she gave me
    I've kept it like a treasured friend
    Now this scarlet rose is only
    Love's token as I go to meet my end
    
    This scarlet rose I took from her hand
    As I saddled up for this long trail ride
    Now I only hope that she'll understand
    Why I won't be returnin' to wed my bride
    
    The trail boss said he'd tell my story
    And he'd give to her my cowboy's pay
    Just ask her to plant a morning glory
    To remember me when I'm gone away
    
    Soon the western sky will be dawning
    I'll be as cold as the sand, I suppose
    But here in my hand come the morning
    They'll find a band and a scarlet rose
    
    Aspencade (Larry W. Jones 10/29/2006) (song#4102)
    
    Sunlight through ponderosa pines
    Autumn colors on parade
    Like the taste of sweetest wines
    Is the beauty of Aspencade
    
    As September days unfold
    Memories I just can't evade
    Green leaves turned to gold
    It's the beauty of Aspencade
    
    Aspencade is a time of life
    When the world forgets its strife
    Look and you will surely find
    Why life and love are intertwined
    
    People are smiling everywhere
    Music for love is always played
    It's the season for all to share
    In the beauty of Aspencade
    
    Aspencade is a time of life
    When the world forgets its strife
    Look and you will surely find
    Why life and love are intertwined
    
    Sunlight through ponderosa pines
    Autumn colors on parade
    Like the taste of sweetest wines
    Is the beauty of Aspencade
    The beauty of Aspencade
    
    Cowgirl In Blue (Larry W. Jones 10/29/2006) (song#4103)
    
    I went to the barn dance one night
    To hear the fiddles and guitars play
    And what I saw was quite a sight
    Barn dances seem to be that way
    
    There I met a cowgirl in blue
    Waltzing with her was such a delight
    And before I knew it, I knew
    She stole my heart away that night
    
    I still dream of that night when I met her
    A sweet cowgirl in blue that I met
    That night at the barn dance was a blur
    That cowgirl in blue I'll never forget
    
    Dark blue were the skies, light blue her eyes
    Like the blue western skirt that she wore
    Oh, cowgirl in blue, say you love me too
    So I won't be blue anymore
    
    There I met a cowgirl in blue
    Waltzing with her was such a delight
    And before I knew it, I knew
    She stole my heart away that night
    
    Dark blue were the skies, light blue her eyes
    Like the blue western skirt that she wore
    Oh, cowgirl in blue, say you love me too
    So I won't be blue anymore
    
    Million Texas Bluebells (Larry W. Jones 10/30/2006) (song#4104)
    
    I haven't got a big ponderosa
    No big pasture of green grassland
    Just a little place near Zaragoza
    That I built with my own hands
    But I can show you purple sage
    On at least a hundred Texas trails
    I'll love you 'til I'm old with age
    And give you a million Texas bluebells
    
    I haven't got a lot of money
    To buy fancy clothes and pearls
    But I can show you days so sunny
    The dewdrops are precious pearls
    And I can show you purple sage
    On at least a hundred Texas trails
    I'll love you 'til I'm old with age
    And give you a million Texas bluebells
    
    A million Texas bluebells gleaming in the sun
    Will line the trails we'll be riding just for fun
    And I can sing you songs on my little spread
    Out near Zaragoza where we'll lay our heads
    
    Drover On A Western Trail (Larry W. Jones 10/30/2006) (song#4105)
    
    I am a drover on a western trail
    Crossing mountains high and valleys deep
    I sing a cowboy song on the western trail
    About the cowboy life so free
    
    The western sun is setting in the valley
    West of my dreams which seem so near
    There'll be no city sorrow come tomorrow
    For I'll still be ridin' here
    
    The sunset is brighter than ever
    Redder than any I've seen
    Will I forsake this life, never
    I'm livin' a cowboy's dream
    
    By the trailside the aspens are shiverin'
    Red, yellow and gold in the air
    Soon the moon will be rising, deliverin'
    Beauty not seen everywhere
    
    The western sun is setting in the valley
    West of my dreams which seem so near
    There'll be no city sorrow come tomorrow
    For I'll still be ridin' here
    
    The sunset is brighter than ever
    Redder than any I've seen
    Will I forsake this life, never
    I'm livin' a cowboy's dream
    
    Full Moon On The Rise (Larry W. Jones 10/30/2006) (song#4106)
    
    There's a full moon on the rise
    And an emptiness inside
    It came as a dark surprise
    That you'd never be my bride
    
    You said that we would wed
    Under a full moon on the rise
    But you have gone and left me
    Though I have waited patiently
    There's a full moon on the rise
    And an emptiness inside
    
    Should I wait for your return
    Will I ever see that blessed day
    I know my heart will ever burn
    For one who chose to go away
    
    There's a full moon on the rise
    And an emptiness inside
    It came as a dark surprise
    That you'd never be my bride
    
    You said that we would wed
    Under a full moon on the rise
    But you have gone and left me
    Though I have waited patiently
    There's a full moon on the rise
    And an emptiness inside
    
    Hot Guitar (Larry W. Jones 10/30/2006) (song#4107)
    
    I'll bet there's thousands with no money
    Most drive an old beat up truck or car
    And all of them have their dreams
    Bout playin' Nashville with a hot guitar
    
    Yeah, some found their way to Nashville
    By following some mis-guiding star
    But then, how were they to know
    They'd end up right back where they are
    
    But even that didn't stop the show
    They had to play that hot guitar
    There was only one place left to go
    Back in 'ole hot Texas
    Playin' Texas honky tonk bars
    
    They're dreams are still in Nashville
    Hung around that mis-guiding star
    Now they're showin' off their skill
    Back in Texas with a hot guitar
    
    There was only one place left to go
    Back in 'ole hot Texas
    Playin' Texas honky tonk bars
    
    They're dreams are still in Nashville
    Hung around that mis-guiding star
    Now they're showin' off their skill
    Back in Texas with a hot guitar
    
    Blue Side Of The Track (Larry W. Jones 10/30/2006) (song#4108)
    
    This old town seems empty and cold
    Even the sky has turned to black
    All my dreams have been put on hold
    My baby's on a new found track 
    
    Every railroad track has two directions
    Now, one goes forward, one goes back
    She's on that new disappearin' section
    And I'm walkin' the blue side of the track
    
    Yeah, I'm walkin' the blue side of the track
    Still tryin' to figure out what went wrong
    Somethin' tells me I'll never get her back
    When she left, she said I couldn't come along
    
    Yeah, I'm walkin' the blue side of the track
    Somethin' tells me I'll never get her back
    
    That girl was the center of my world
    But now my world is filled with pain
    My heart on her little finger was twirled
    But she didn't linger for that outbound train
    
    Every railroad track has two directions
    Now, one goes forward, one goes back
    She's on that new disappearin' section
    And I'm walkin' the blue side of the track
    I'm walkin' the blue side of the track
    
    Talk About Texas (Larry W. Jones 10/30/2006) (song#4109)
    
    When you talk about Texas
    Don't forget to mention the flowers
    Indian paintbrushes and bluebonnets
    Can hold your attention for hours
    
    Up to old Dalhart in the north
    Don't forget cow town Fort Worth
    From the shining Gulf of Mexico
    The Lone Star state, I love so
    
    When you talk about Texas
    Don't forget to mention the sunshine
    From old Louisian' to El Paso sand
    It's more than just a big state of mind
    
    When you talk about Texas
    There's oil and cattle and cowboy songs
    Snakes that rattle where a snake belongs
    So, for goodness sakes, come sing along
    
    When you talk about Texas
    There's cowboys, rednecks and Lone Star beer
    You can do a Texas two-step any time of year
    Oh, forgot to mention a million longhorn steers
    
    When you talk about Texas
    You're talkin' about my state
    Now, I ain't bragging, I'm just taggin'
    That big 'ole Texas sure is great
    
    When you talk about Texas
    You're talkin' about my state
    
    Ridin' Away From The Blues (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2006) (song#4110)
    
    Well, my sorrows are going away
    Tomorrow's gonna be a brand new day
    I'm gonna head anywhere I choose
    I'm ridin' away from the blues
    
    I'm not worried anymore
    My broken heart is in repair
    I'm ridin' a new trail to explore
    I'll make a new start over there
    
    My fingers I've been snappin'
    My saddlebags are flappin'
    My hat on tight I'm strappin'
    I'm ridin' away from the blues
    
    I gave that silly girl a big adios
    Where she's goin' nobody knows
    Her chilly kind of love I can't use
    I'm ridin' away from the blues
    
    I'm not worried anymore
    My broken heart is in repair
    I'm ridin' a new trail to explore
    I'll make a new start over there
    
    My fingers I've been snappin'
    My saddlebags are flappin'
    My hat on tight I'm strappin'
    I'm ridin' away from the blues
    
    Say Howdy (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2006) (song#4111)
    
    If I sang of yellow cabs and a stock ticker
    I'd be singin' about a New York city slicker
    But I sing of one whom a horse and saddle employ
    Yep, I sing, of course, about the Texas cowboy
    
    Say howdy to the hard workin' trail boss
    And to the cookie fryin' bacon in the pan
    Howdy to the vaquero's hot Terlingua sauce
    Cowboys all, back when Texas first began
    Cowboys all, back when Texas first began
    
    They'll gather 'round for cowboy breakfast
    Lies and jokes and tales they'll exchange
    Then they'll saddle up, day's work discuss
    And round up all the longhorns on the range
    
    Say howdy to the hard workin' trail boss
    And to the cookie fryin' bacon in the pan
    Howdy to the vaquero's hot Terlingua sauce
    Cowboys all, back when Texas first began
    Cowboys all, back when Texas first began
    
    And when it comes to roping and branding
    Longhorns and dogies have no understanding
    They're mean and ornery and ain't no joy
    But Texas never raised no ordinary cowboy
    
    Say howdy to the hard workin' trail boss
    And to the cookie fryin' bacon in the pan
    Howdy to the vaquero's hot Terlingua sauce
    Cowboys all, back when Texas first began
    Cowboys all, back when Texas first began
    
    Rodeo Cowboy Bum (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2006) (song#4112)
    
    I said I was gonna quit the rodeo
    I'm never gonna be a top cowhand
    I said I'd do right with a little dough
    And buy a ring for her left hand
    
    Becky said OK, we'll see how it goes
    But here we are still eatin' crumbs
    And I'm still ridin' broncs at the rodeo
    I'm nothin' but a rodeo cowboy bum
    And I'm still ridin' broncs at the rodeo
    I'm nothin' but a rodeo cowboy bum
    
    Some years later on the circuit
    I got a call on the motel telephone
    Becky said Joe was a good kid
    But our little cowboy has left home
    
    It's sad that he's like his dad, you know
    He said, a rodeo star he'd become
    Now he's out there ridin' the rodeo
    He's nothin' but a rodeo cowboy bum
    Now he's out there ridin' the rodeo
    He's nothin' but a rodeo cowboy bum
    
    And I'm still ridin' broncs at the rodeo
    I'm nothin' but a rodeo cowboy bum
    And I'm still ridin' broncs at the rodeo
    I'm nothin' but a rodeo cowboy bum
    
    Rodeo Is The Place To Go (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2006) (song#4113)
    
    Go out there to the county fair, it's rodeo night tonight
    Bull riders claim they got no brain and they might be right
    The rodeo clown's in a barrel that's round and a little tight
    Crowds will roar 'til their throats are sore at the rodeo tonight
    
    Oh, the rodeo is the place to go when you spend your dough
    And when you spend your dough the place to go is the rodeo
    
    The cowboys ride on broncs wild eyed and try to hold on tight
    They count to eight when they pull the gate and hope that they don't die
    Cowgirls scream for their cowboy dream, givin' him their eye
    And the cowboys grin, take it on the chin at the rodeo tonight
    
    Oh, the rodeo is the place to go when you spend your dough
    And when you spend your dough the place to go is the rodeo
    
    Oh, take me where those cowboys ride and cowgirls give a wink
    Barbeque, potatoes fried on the side and Lone Star is the drink
    Now the final round at the rodeo ground where cowboys hold on tight
    They split the purse, some called a hearse at the rodeo tonight
    
    Oh, the rodeo is the place to go when you spend your dough
    And when you spend your dough the place to go is the rodeo
    
    Oh, the rodeo is the place to go when you spend your dough
    And when you spend your dough the place to go is the rodeo
    
    Let's all go and spend our dough at the rodeo tonight! ! ! !
    Yee Ha! ! !
    
    Calamity Jane (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2006) (song#4114)
    
    I know a cowgirl with a claim to fame
    She can straight shoot a gun without taking aim
    There's no other cowgirl can be for me
    You oughta see my Calamity Jane
    
    Oh, ride by my side, Calamity Jane
    Ride by my side, Calamity Jane
    All I wanna do is ride about 'n shout about
    My Calamity Jane
    
    Now, I've been a cowboy all my life
    And for me there can only be one wife, Calamity Jane
    All I wanna do is ride about 'n shout about
    My Calamity Jane
    
    Oh, ride by my side, Calamity Jane
    Ride by my side, Calamity Jane
    All I wanna do is ride about 'n shout about
    My Calamity Jane
    
    Now if you'll bring the gun, I'll rope and throw
    And we'll go and join the Wild West Show, Calamity Jane
    All I wanna do is ride about 'n shout about
    My Calamity Jane
    
    Oh, ride by my side, Calamity Jane
    Ride by my side, Calamity Jane
    All I wanna do is ride about 'n shout about
    My Calamity Jane
    All I wanna do is ride about 'n shout about
    My Calamity Jane
    
    Fort Worth Town (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2006) (song#4115)
    
    Come ride along and don't you frown
    I'm headin' on down to Fort Worth town
    Cowboys there are glad to share
    Fort Worth Texas is called cow town
    
    They welcome strangers, short or tall
    With a tip of the hat and a big Hi Y'all
    I'm headin' on down to Fort Worth town
    Been awhile since I heard a Texas drawl
    
    The steaks are great off the barbeque
    That's how I rate the Lone Star State too
    
    Anywhere I go, one thing I'll always know
    Is that Fort Worth Texas has a lot to give
    Cowboys in cow town aren't just for show
    Fort Worth is where this cowboy's gonna live
    
    The steaks are great off the barbeque
    That's how I rate the Lone Star State too
    Come ride along and don't you frown
    I'm headin' on down to Fort Worth town
    
    I'm headin' on down to Fort Worth town
    
    Amarillo Slim (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2006) (song#4116)
    
    Purple sage on the canyon rim
    Palo Duro is the place I long to be
    Folks just call me Amarillo Slim
    My Palo Duro darlin's waitin' for me
    
    Today I'm gonna put on my sombrero
    Carve her name on a big pine tree
    Headin' where Pan Handle winds blow
    My Palo Duro darlin' I'm gonna see
    
    Just a little south of Amarillo
    In the land of the armadillo
    That's where I'm makin' my pillow
    Amarillo Slim's gonna have a jubilee
    
    Longhorn cows I've been ropin'
    You don't know how I've been hopin'
    To head back to where I belong
    To my Palo Duro darlin' and home
    
    Just a little south of Amarillo
    In the land of the armadillo
    That's where I'm makin' my pillow
    Amarillo Slim's gonna have a jubilee
    
    Longhorn cows I've been ropin'
    You don't know how I've been hopin'
    To head back to where I belong
    To my Palo Duro darlin' and home
    
    Goodnight-Loving Trail (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2006) (song#4117)
    
    Ridin' where the Concho and the Pecos Rivers flow
    Keep those longhorns moving, moving, moving slow
    Pay no mind to blowin' rain, pray there ain't no hail
    Movin' cows along, along the Goodnight-Loving trail
    
    Once these cows are sold, I'm goin' back to hold
    My sweet darlin' with her smile and hair of gold
    Pay no mind to blowin' rain, pray there ain't no hail
    Movin' cows along, along the Goodnight-Loving trail
    
    Ridin' through New Mexico and up to Colorado
    Headin' for Cheyenne, hopin' that it don't snow
    Pay no mind to blowin' rain, pray there ain't no hail
    Movin' cows along, along the Goodnight-Loving trail
    Movin' cows along, along the Goodnight-Loving trail
    
    Heartaches Here Are Blue (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2006) (song#4118)
    
    Heartaches here are blue, a sad tear is too
    When I'm feeling lonely, dreaming of you
    Where did you ramble, why did you go
    Why did I gamble on love that grew cold
    
    I miss you in daytime 'til sun has gone down
    Then comes dismay time 'til morning comes 'round
    How can I forget you, I wish that I knew
    Heartaches here are blue, a sad tear is too
    
    Heartaches here are blue, a sad tear is too
    Were you just teasing when you said I do
    Now that you've left me with no love to find
    Heartaches and tears drive me out of my mind
    
    Is it wrong to still love you
    When I'm feeling so blue
    How much I love you, I wish that you knew
    Heartaches here are blue, a sad tear is too
    
    How much I love you, I wish that you knew
    Heartaches here are blue, a sad tear is too
    
    Waltzing Your Last Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2006) (song#4119)
    
    When I saw you waltzing
    I saw a tear fall from your eye
    Could it be that you're waltzing
    Waltzing your last goodbye
    
    I saw a tear fall from your eye
    Just a little tear that I could see
    Could it be that in the next waltz
    You'll be waltzing with me
      
    There must be a reason
    For that tear in your eye
    I wouldn't think it treason
    To waltz away from that guy
    
    When I saw you waltzing
    I saw a tear fall from your eye
    Could it be that you're waltzing
    Waltzing your last goodbye
    
    I saw a tear fall from your eye
    Just a little tear that I could see
    Could it be that in the next waltz
    You'll be waltzing with me
    
    Midnight Zephyr (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2007) (song#4120)
    
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr
    Keep your big 'ol wheels rollin' down the track
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr
    The way I feel, my goal ain't to be comin' back
    
    I've got a mind to pack and go
    Like a forty mule Borax team
    I wanna find your stack aglow
    Pourin' out smoke and steam
    She ran away with another man
    But I ain't beggin' on my knees
    I'm rollin' away fast as I can
    On that Midnight Zephyr breeze
    
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr
    Keep your big 'ol wheels rollin' down the track
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr
    The way I feel, my goal ain't to be comin' back
    
    I'll be on my way down to Santa Fe
    With a whistle stop in San Antone
    Don't look for me neither night or day
    When that last trestle finds me gone
    She'll be sorry for not doin' me right
    On a starry night I'll be on her mind
    Like a bird in flight I'll be out of sight
    Listnin' to that Midnight Zephyr whine
    
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr
    Keep your big 'ol wheels rollin' down the track
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr
    The way I feel, my goal ain't to be comin' back
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr
    Woo woo, Midnight Zephyr

    Tell me who baby, who baby, who baby who
    Makes you blue baby, blue baby, blue baby blue
    You know he can't love you the way that I do
    Now tell me who baby, who baby, who baby who
    
    Well, don't you know that I'm in love with you
    And I'm beggin' only that you'll love me too
    But you're runnin' 'round with another guy
    All you've found is how he makes you cry
    I can't stand to see you feelin' sad and blue
    I'm gonna be a man and make you love me too
    Forget the honky tonkin' that he takes you to
    Come and get true love that I'll make for you
    
    Tell me who baby, who baby, who baby who
    Makes you blue baby, blue baby, blue baby blue
    I can make you happy if you'll only say "I do"
    Now tell me who baby, who baby, who baby who
    
    There's and old song that I've heard sung
    Better find a true love while you're still young
    So, pay attention to these words I say
    I'll be lovin' you from now 'til my dyin' day
    I can't stand to see you feelin' sad and blue
    I'm gonna be a man and make you love me too
    Forget the honky tonkin' that he takes you to
    Come and get true love that I'll make for you
    
    Tell me who baby, who baby, who baby who
    Makes you blue baby, blue baby, blue baby blue
    You know he can't love you the way that I do
    Now tell me who baby, who baby, who baby who
    
    Texas Kind Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2006) (song#4122)
    
    I've got a Texas kind of love for you
    As big as the sky that's baby blue
    I'll do most anything you want me to
    I've got a Texas kind of love for you
    
    I've got a Texas kind of love for you
    As big as the sky that's baby blue
    I'll do most anything you want me to

    If we can reach one another
    Then we can teach each other
    Love that's right from wrong
    So, come on along
    
    I've got a Texas kind of love for you
    As big as the sky that's baby blue
    I'll do most anything you want me to
    I've got a Texas kind of love for you

    As big as the sky that's baby blue
    I'll do most anything you want me to
    I've got a Texas kind of love for you
    
    The One Who Has My Name (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2006) (song#4123)
    
    The one who has my name
    Is the one who owns my heart
    She's my life's only aim
    As she's been from the start
    
    When I look into her eyes
    Her eyes of baby blue
    Why I love her is no surprise
    And my love for her is true
    
    The one who has my name
    Has been the only love for me
    Since before she became
    My sweetheart bride to be
    
    As I look back to life's start
    There's nothing I would change
    For the one who owns my heart
    And the one who has my name
    
    Waltz Of The Wind (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2006) (song#4124)
    
    Strummin' my guitar at the retirement home
    Singin' songs about times that used to be
    When I noticed a man was sittin' all alone
    Looking like he was looking right through me
    
    I asked if there was a song he'd like to hear
    I'd play and sing any song, great or small
    When he looked again, I know I saw a tear
    He said there's a favorite that he did recall
    
    Play me Waltz of the Wind, my friend
    Play me Waltz of the Wind once again
    And then just let me be
    While I waltz again with her memory
    
    That's the song that she loved the most
    Back before I learned how to weep
    The song we waltzed to, dancing close
    They played it when she went to sleep
    
    Play me Waltz of the Wind, my friend
    Play me Waltz of the Wind once again
    And then just let me be
    While I waltz again with her memory
    While I waltz again with her memory
    
    Behind This Pride (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2006) (song#4125)
    
    Life and love can sometimes be a grind
    Where two loves who don't talk abide
    There's too many heartaches to find
    Behind this pride where teardrops reside
    
    We make believe that we're doing well
    And nobody knows that love has died 
    But we grieve on the blue side of the veil
    Behind this pride where teardrops reside
    
    We make believe and keep on going
    Trying to find a reason for holding on
    But this river of tears is overflowing
    Over a broken love that's already gone
    
    Why couldn't we just be content
    Like we were as groom and bride
    But we made room for discontent
    Behind this pride where teardrops reside
    
    Why couldn't we just be content
    Like we were as groom and bride
    But we made room for discontent
    Behind this pride where teardrops reside
    
    Written In The Sands Of Time (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2006) (song#4126)
    
    Love started in the Garden of Eden
    Came down through the family tree
    Now I know that true love has even
    Found its way down to you and me
    
    It was written in the sands of time
    Carved on a sweetheart tree or two
    That somehow you would be mine
    And my heart would belong to you
    
    Everything about you, I'm aware
    Is made of love, I know
    You were made with tender care
    In the heavens long ago
    
    It was written in the sands of time
    Carved on a sweetheart tree or two
    That somehow you would be mine
    And my heart would belong to you
    
    Everything about you, I'm aware
    Is made of love, I know
    You were made with tender care
    In the heavens long ago
    
    It was written in the sands of time
    That somehow you would be mine
    It was written in the sands of time
    That somehow you would be mine
    
    West Texas Cow (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2006) (song#4127)
    
    My uncle gave me a longhorn cow
    Out in west Texas where it's dry
    I wondered if that cow knew how
    To give milk that folks would buy
    
    She never was the kind to tame
    She sure was a wild one, I'll avow
    I learned to milk 'er just the same
    Should-a seen that west Texas cow
    
    Bessie's moo sounded smooth as silk
    She was the queen of west Texas cows
    But I knew she gave the kind of milk
    That the dairy board just never allows
    
    I fed her fine and I powdered her nose
    But at milking time she'd always bilk
    West Texas is dry, that's why I suppose
    That west Texas cow gave powered milk
    
    Clementine (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2006) (song#4128)
    
    Ride with me, Clementine
    Just with me, Clementine
    I wish the dreams you're dreaming
    Were riding along with mine
    Oh, return and ride with me, Clementine
    
    I never knew, Clementine
    That we'd be through, Clementine
    You'll never know how I miss you so
    Oh, return and turn the tide
    Oh, return and ride with me, Clementine
    
    Ride with me, Clementine
    Just with me, Clementine
    I wish the dreams you're dreaming
    Were riding along with mine
    Oh, return and ride with me, Clementine
    
    I wish the dreams you're dreaming
    Were riding along with mine
    Oh, return and ride with me, Clementine
    
    Wild Frontier Trail (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2006) (song#4129)
    
    I once was a rich man with ships made to sail
    But I had a new plan for the wild frontier trail
    I sold all my treasures and cancelled my mail
    And I set out to riding on the wild frontier trail
    
    Over the Adirondacks and down the deep vales
    I passed by the great lodges on the Indian trails
    I crossed the wide Missouri at Kansas City
    And across the wheat fields of the flat prarie 
    
    On the wild frontier trail
    On the wild frontier trail
    I've been riding forever it seems
    On the wild frontier trail
    
    I am acquainted with settlers in the back woods
    Like me they have shunned all their worldly goods
    I have heard their misfortunes and their good deeds
    I have heard their sad songs and sweet melodies 
    
    They plowed the good earth by rivers and streams
    Buried their loved ones on the trail of their dreams
    By sweat, muscle and perseverance they did not fail
    To find their new horizons on the wild frontier trail
    
    On the wild frontier trail
    On the wild frontier trail
    I've been riding forever it seems
    On the wild frontier trail
    
    When I was a rich man I had ships made to sail
    I lived in a mansion and the post brought my mail
    Now I'm not a rich man but I've rich stories to tell
    Of a life that's been happy on the wild frontier trail
    
    On the wild frontier trail
    On the wild frontier trail
    I've been riding forever it seems
    On the wild frontier trail
    
    Longhorns' Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2006) (song#4130)
    
    When the western sun sets over the trail
    And the sky turns purple, red and gold
    When the longhorns settle down bye and bye
    That's when you'll hear the sound without fail
    The music of the prarie, long ago told
    Of the song known as the Longhorns' Lullaby
    
    The cooling breeze makes the leaves all sway
    See the sun setting 'ore the prarie sky
    Yee.......odl............lo.....dee..........aye
    Listen to the Longhorns' Lullaby
    
    When sunlight is gone from the western sky
    And cookie's campfire shines a last hurrah
    The stars in heaven seem to give a sigh
    The cowboy pulls out his old harmonica
    To play for the cattle his Longhorns' Lullaby
    To play for the cattle his Longhorns' Lullaby
    
    The cooling breeze makes the leaves all sway
    See the sun setting 'ore the prarie sky
    Yee.......odl............lo.....dee..........aye
    Listen to the Longhorns' Lullaby
    Listen to the Longhorns' Lullaby
    
    Texas Hill Country (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2006) (song#4131)
    
    In Texas hill country, I worked on the rails
    The drill that I manned dug a hundred wells
    Other places I've been, no joy they'd bring
    Texas hill country is the place of my dream
    
    And when I die, send me on a bluebird's wing
    Where Texas bluebonnets bloom in the spring
    
    There are fields in my Texas hill country home
    That look like heaven on earth after I've roamed
    Spring comes and bluebonnets paint the ground
    Indian paintbrushes are glad to have them around
    
    And when I die, send me on a bluebird's wing
    Where Texas bluebonnets bloom in the spring
    
    New York City and most other places I go
    Don't have the beauty where bluebonnets grow
    In Texas hill country I've spent most of my time
    Texas hill country has been a good friend of mine
    
    And when I die, send me on a bluebird's wing
    Where Texas bluebonnets bloom in the spring
    In Texas hill country
    Where Texas bluebonnets bloom in the spring
    
    Molly (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2006) (song#4132)
    
    I rode out on the trail, Molly
    To watch the sun settin low
    I wandered by the stream, Molly
    Where we strolled so long ago
    The meadows are still green, Molly
    Birds still sing in the aspen trees
    Just as when I said I loved only you, Molly
    And when you said you loved only me
    
    Now you and I've grown old, Molly
    Our last song of the trail is nearly sung
    Let us sing of days of gold, Molly
    And ways of love when we were young
    
    Most of our dreams did come true, Molly
    Like we hoped that they would be
    Just as when I said I loved only you, Molly
    And when you said you loved only me
    The meadows are still green, Molly
    My saddle and spurs are almost hung
    Let's ride out and view the scene, Molly
    Like we did when we were young
    
    Now you and I've grown old, Molly
    Our last song of the trail is nearly sung
    Let us sing of days of gold, Molly
    And ways of love when we were young
    
    This Summer Love (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2006) (song#4133)
    
    The western sun will warm our kiss
    During this summer love of bliss
    When the snow is on the mountains
    When the bluebird's no longer here
    In each other's arms, we'll remember
    This summer love we hold so dear
    
    As we ride along the western trail
    Our summer vows of love will prevail
    When the snow is on the mountains
    When the starry summer skies are gone
    Gray clouds will bring the rain and gale
    But this summer love will carry on
    
    When the snow is on the mountains
    When the bluebird's no longer here
    In each other's arms, we'll remember
    This summer love we hold so dear
    
    Maverick Man (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2006) (song#4134)
    
    I was born in south Texas
    Seems like too many years ago
    Now, one of life's affects is
    Lookin' for a new place to go
    
    I'm just a maverick man
    My home is somewhere behind
    I know where it all began
    But I'm just the maverick kind
    Every mile of railroad track
    Keeps tryin' to call me back
    But I'm just a maverick man
    
    I've seen the snow in Colorado
    And the Alamo in San Antone
    I've been down to old Mexico
    But nowhere can I call home
    
    I'm just a maverick man
    My home is somewhere behind
    I know where it all began
    But I'm just the maverick kind
    Every mile of railroad track
    Keeps tryin' to call me back
    But I'm just a maverick man
    
    I've got an old pawn shop guitar
    I play it in honky tonk dens
    Guess I'll never be a top star
    And I know I'll pawn it again
    
    I'm just a maverick man
    My home is somewhere behind
    I know where it all began
    But I'm just the maverick kind
    Every mile of railroad track
    Keeps tryin' to call me back
    But I'm just a maverick man
    
    Gypsy Earrings (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2006) (song#4135)
    
    Now, come and listen to my yarn
    That Gypsies say is oh so true
    After all, it can do no harm
    And maybe it was meant for you
    
    When your love wears earrings of gold
    It is said that she was meant for you
    An old love story that is Gypsy told
    Earrings of gold means her love is true
    
    By the wagons around the warm Gypsy camp fire
    You will see them glowing from the coals
    Listen to the whisper of her heart's desire
    It tells of Gypsy love deep within her soul 
    
    Now, listen to what I have to tell
    Be my true love with your Gypsy spell
    For I see in your earrings of gold
    The same love that I feel in my soul
    
    By the wagons around the warm Gypsy camp fire
    You will see them glowing from the coals
    Listen to the whisper of her heart's desire
    It tells of Gypsy love deep within her soul 
    
    Now, listen to what I have to tell
    Be my true love with your Gypsy spell
    For I see in your earrings of gold
    The same love that I feel in my soul
    
    Come and listen to the yarn
    That gypsies say is oh so true
    
    Just A Honky Tonk Song (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2006) (song#4136)
    
    Now that you've gone and made me blue
    Look what you've gone and made me do
    I get in my truck and I drive around
    End up in every honky tonk in town
    Every jukebox plays something blue
    The songs they sing are me and you
    
    Listen to the songs the jukebox plays
    I've been missing you nights and days
    You know I want to be your lovin' man
    But love, I can't be just a distant fan
    
    Why don't you love me like you used to do
    Instead of just making me sad and blue
    Now, look what you've gone and made me do
    I'm just a honky tonk song that's true
    
    You know I want to be your lovin' man
    But love, I can't be just a distant fan
    
    Now that you've gone and made me blue
    Look what you've gone and made me do
    I get in my truck and I drive around
    End up in every honky tonk in town
    Every jukebox plays something blue
    The songs they sing are me and you
    
    Why don't you love me like you used to do
    Instead of just making me sad and blue
    Now, look what you've gone and made me do
    I'm just a honky tonk song that's true
    
    Mister Whippoorwill (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2006) (song#4137)
    
    I was ridin' down the trail
    A whippoorwill was singin'
    Sounding blue and forlorn
    Wondering why the scorn
    I thought about his lonely song
    And wondered if maybe
    Was he singin' of some other cowboy
    Or was it maybe me
    
    Mister whippoorwill, I heard you singin' a song today
    It was a blue song you were singin'
    About a love bird who flew away
    You're just like me, mister whippoorwill
    My song is of a love who went astray
    A lonesome song about a lonely cowboy today
    
    There's something about a whippoorwill's song
    It's low and forlorn about things not right
    Before he goes to sleep, he sings of the wrong
    And he cries for his lost love at night
    Mister whippoorwill, sing in your lonesome way
    A lonesome song about a lonely cowboy today
    
    Mister whippoorwill, I heard you singin' a song today
    It was a blue song you were singin'
    About a love bird who flew away
    You're just like me, mister whippoorwill
    My song is of a love who went astray
    A lonesome song about a lonely cowboy today
    
    Kansas City Starr (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2006) (song#4138)
    
    Kansas City Starr, Kansas City Starr
    To a cowboy, sent from heaven you are
    I'll trade my saddle and Texas star for
    Kansas City Starr, Kansas City Starr
    There ain't no kitty as pretty by far
    As my Kansas City Starr
    
    I drove some Texas longhorns
    Up the old Chisholm trail
    All the way from Texas
    To the Kansas City rails
    There I met a showgirl
    Singin' with an old guitar
    The billboard said her name was
    Kansas City Starr
    
    Kansas City Starr, Kansas City Starr
    To a cowboy, sent from heaven you are
    I'll trade my saddle and Texas star for
    Kansas City Starr, Kansas City Starr
    There ain't no kitty as pretty by far
    As my Kansas City Starr
    
    Who Wants My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2006) (song#4139)
    
    Shadows cast from a moon that's blue
    The past must now be forgotten too
    Who wants my dreams of things
    That once was love so true
    
    I remember laughter of yester-years
    Now all that's after is bitter tears
    Who wants my dreams of things
    That once was love so true
    
    I reminisce of the way things were
    And I still dream my dreams of her
    But I don't like these dreams so blue
    Somebody tell me, what am I to do
    
    A ranch that's small underneath the moon
    The purple sage tall was all in bloom
    Who wants my dreams of things
    That once was love so true
    
    I reminisce of the way things were
    And I still dream my dreams of her
    But I don't like these dreams so blue
    Somebody tell me, what am I to do
    
    A ranch that's small underneath the moon
    The purple sage tall was all in bloom
    Who wants my dreams of things
    That once was love so true
    
    Who wants my dreams of things
    That once was love so true
    
    Cowboy Little (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2006) (song#4140)
    
    Big 'ol Texas moon keep shining on
    Down on a little cowboy, shine from above
    He'll know that pretty soon
    You big 'ol Texas moon
    You'll shine down on a little cowboy you love
    
    Pale shadows on the trail
    Cowboy Little, you've had a day of fun
    Now it's time for the nightengale
    To sing his song 'cause the day is done
    So, close your eyes and let the veil
    Of dreams carry you toward tomorrow's sun
    
    Pale shadows on the trail
    Breeze blowin' through the cottonwood trees
    All little Cowboy Littles
    Have eaten all their vittles
    Now, through the window of the bunkhouse streams
    All of Cowboy Little's dreams
    
    Now, through the window of the bunkhouse streams
    All of Cowboy Little's dreams
    
    Adios Party (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2006) (song#4141)
    
    When I've ridden the last trail on my pony
    And my hands are as blue as the sea
    When the cowboys ride in for my adios party
    My last branding will be done, you see
    
    I'll get flowers from the wives of Jake and Artie
    Old cowboys I'll leave in this world alone
    They'll all come to mourn at my adios party
    And adorn me with roses when I'm gone
    
    Don't be angry when I have to leave you
    Sometimes I was as stubborn as a mule
    I know they'll sing a song at my adios party
    Ask them to sing one that says I love you
    
    I'll get flowers from the wives of Jake and Artie
    Old cowboys I'll leave in this world alone
    They'll all come to mourn at my adios party
    And adorn me with roses when I'm gone
    
    They'll all come to mourn at my adios party
    And adorn me with roses when I'm gone
    
    Cowboy On A Stand (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2006) (song#4142)
    
    I'll sing you a western song
    Of a silver screen cowboy if you want me to
    I've been singin' cowboy songs so long
    About Roy and Gene and 'ol Tom Mix too
    
    You might of seen me on the Opry stage
    Or heard me on the radio
    But one thing I know has come with age
    I'm not a silver screen hero
    
    Cause I'm just a cowboy on a stand
    Singin' songs in a western band
    The real heroes are those I see
    Sitting in the rows at my feet
    A young boy with a crutch so lame
    I wonder why he even came
    And a mother with babies too
    Smothering them with love so true
    I'm not a silver screen hero, m'am
    I'm just a cowboy on a stand
    
    You might of seen me on the Opry stage
    Or heard me on the radio
    But one thing I know has come with age
    I'm not a silver screen hero
    
    Cause I'm just a cowboy on a stand
    Singin' songs in a western band
    The real heroes are those I see
    Sitting in the rows at my feet
    I'm not a silver screen hero, m'am

    Badlands (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2006) (song#4143)
    
    I'm riding toward the badlands
    I'm already on my way
    Soon I'll be across the Rio Grande
    There's no time to delay
    That girl said that she'd wait for me
    So, how was I to know
    That she'd wed another instead of me
    I'm riding toward the badlands
    Of Old Mexico
    
    The badlands will be my home
    Until my days are done
    Through the badlands I will roam
    Under the Mexican sun
    
    My sojourn here has been a failure
    There's no use in shedding tears
    I'm using my boots and spurs
    Riding away from all my fears
    That girl said once upon a time
    That love, a lonely heart would cure
    But her words wern't worth a dime
    My heart is broken, that's for sure
    
    I'm riding toward the badlands
    I'm already on my way
    Soon I'll be across the Rio Grande
    There's no time to delay
    That girl said that she'd wait for me
    So, how was I to know
    That she'd wed another instead of me
    I'm riding toward the badlands
    Of Old Mexico
    
    Somewhere Around The Bend (Larry W. Jones 11/14/2006) (song#4144)
    
    Breeze, hum a cowboy song
    Make it happy as I ride along
    I don't know where I'm bound
    This trail seems to have no end
    But I hear the grass is greener
    Somewhere around the bend
    
    I haven't got a care or worry
    Just ridin' the trail in no hurry
    Saddle bags are empty, but I'll just pretend
    That the grass is always greener
    Somewhere around the bend
    
    Somewhere around the bend
    I'll see if there's somebody
    Who will say they'll be my friend
    For now I'll just ride along
    Breeze, hum a cowboy song
    There's gonna be a better day
    Somewhere around the bend
    
    Somewhere around the bend
    
    Born In Texas Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2006) (song#4145)
    
    If you love me, then understand me
    Please don't try to re-brand me
    Cause I was born in Texas sunshine
    I was born in Texas sunshine
    Cowboy boots on my cowboy feet
    Ridin' through the meadows
    Wipin' my brow from Texas heat
    I love you and I think you're great
    But don't try to get me to move to another state
    Cause I was born in Texas sunshine
    
    I was born in Texas sunshine
    With the sound of guitar strings
    A honky tonk night, neon lights
    Where Bob Wills is still the King
    If you love me, then understand me
    Please don't try to re-brand me
    Cause I was born in Texas sunshine
    
    You can't beat a Texas mornin'
    On that you must agree
    I was wearin' a cowboy hat
    When my Daddy bounced me on his knee
    If you love me, then understand me
    Please don't try to re-brand me
    Cause I was born in Texas sunshine
    
    If you love me, then understand me
    Please don't try to re-brand me
    Cause I was born in Texas sunshine
    
    Yeah, I was born in Texas sunshine

    Well, the station master told me
    She's on that stagecoach and gone
    Yeah, the station master told me
    She's on that stagecoach and gone
    Now, I know it ain't my fault
    That cowgirl's gone and done me wrong
    
    Don't know how it happened
    Not sure now who's to blame
    Don't know how it happened
    Not sure now who's to blame
    I'm gonna find me another cowgirl
    But I know it just won't be the same
    
    Well, my mama tried to tell me
    Son, don't be no rodeo bum
    But I didn't listen to mama
    Now the day she warned about has come
    
    Well, the station master told me
    She's on that stagecoach and gone
    Yeah, the station master told me
    She's on that stagecoach and gone
    Now, I know it's my own fault
    I've gone and done that cowgirl wrong
    
    Yeah, the station master told me
    She's on that stagecoach and gone
    
    Riding Along The Rio (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2006) (song#4147)
    
    Riding along the Rio, listenin' to its lullaby
    Riding along the Rio, just keeps flowing right on by
    That old Rio knows where it's going
    Into the Gulf of Mexico without fail
    Don't fly away, Texas bluebird
    While I'm just riding along the trail
    Middle of the mornin' sunshine, just riding slow
    That sweet girl said she'd be mine
    And that's all I need to know
    
    She's my Texas blue sky, my sunny day
    Sure makes me feel high when she sighs and looks my way
    Riding along the Rio on a sunny Texas day
    
    It's a good 'ol Texas mornin', sunshine everywhere
    Riding along the Rio, before long I'll be there
    That cowgirl's gonna meet me with love in her eye
    Riding along the Rio, listenin' to its lullaby
    
    She's my Texas blue sky, my sunny day
    Sure makes me feel high when she sighs and looks my way
    Riding along the Rio on a sunny Texas day
    
    Boot Scootin' Man (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2006) (song#4148)
    
    Got my Wrangler boot-cut jeans, Buckaroo boots
    Loot in my pockets, and a magnitude attitude
    Got my Charlie 1-horse Stetson with a bolo around the crown
    When we get to boot scootin' baby, nobody's gonna slow us down
    I'm your boot scootin' man, keep up with me if you can
    I'm your boot scootin' man, the best since Texas music began
    
    I'm your boot scootin' man, we'll dance 'til the closin', babe
    Got my 'ol six shooter, you're two-steppin' with a real boot scooter
    Now, dance like a floater, go like a honky tonk locomotor
    When we get it all together, then tell me babe, if whether 
    I'm your boot scootin' man, keep up with me if you can
    I'm your boot scootin' man, the best since Texas music began
      
    I'm your boot scootin' man, we'll dance 'til the closin', babe
    One thing sure is true, since I've been boot scootin' with you
    My reputation's gonna grow, might as well let it show
    When we get it all together, then tell me babe, if whether 
    I'm your boot scootin' man, keep up with me if you can
    I'm your boot scootin' man, the best since Texas music began
    
    Now, I ain't braggin' babe, I'm just Texas made
    And that's a fact. Yee Haw!
    
    Midnight Strider (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2006) (song#4149)
    
    They've got me on the run but I'll keep on ridin'
    No time for fun or a place for hidin'
    I'm over the hill with a two dollar bill
    And they're never gonna catch this 'ol outsider
    They'll never catch up with the midnight strider
    
    The only things I own are what I got on
    And the outlaw trail is poor provider
    I'm over the hill with a two dollar bill
    And they're never gonna catch this 'ol outsider
    They'll never catch up with the midnight strider
    
    Well, so much for danger and daring
    The wind is takin' on a midnight chill
    If I don't ride, it's a noose I'm wearing 
    I'm over the hill with a two dollar bill
    
    Well, so much for danger and daring
    The wind is takin' on a midnight chill
    If I don't ride, it's a noose I'm wearing 
    I'm over the hill with a two dollar bill
    And they're never gonna catch this 'ol outsider
    They'll never catch up with the midnight strider
    
    Born To Be The Wranglin' Kind (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2006) (song#4150)
    
    Well, I was born to be the wranglin' kind
    Makin' a livin' as best a rodeo cowboy can
    And when it's time for movin' on
    You'll understand why it is I'm gone
    I was born to be the wranglin' kind
    
    Well, my Daddy was a rancher out west Texas way
    Worked his life away punchin' cows and balin' hay
    I was raised to be a cowboy with rangin' on my mind
    I was born to be the wranglin' kind
    
    Well, I was born to be the wranglin' kind
    Makin' a livin' as best a rodeo cowboy can
    And when it's time for movin' on
    You'll understand why it is I'm gone
    I was born to be the wranglin' kind
    
    Today I'm on my way to old San Antone
    Leavin' Santa Fe and Alamagordo behind
    Wonderin' how long it'll take to get me thrown
    I was born to be the wranglin' kind
    
    Well, I was born to be the wranglin' kind
    Makin' a livin' as best a rodeo cowboy can
    And when it's time for movin' on
    You'll understand why it is I'm gone
    I was born to be the wranglin' kind
    
    Any Old Cowboy Dream (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2006) (song#4151)
    
    I opened my eyes, opened the shutters
    Looked at the corral to see what was the matter
    Far, far away, horses were speeding
    But the ranch was still sleeping
    Any old cowboy dream will do
    
    I put on my duster coat, with drover's lining
    Snowflakes were shining, as the blizzard blew
    And in the west, lightning was breaking
    An awful noise it was making
    Any old cowboy dream will do
    
    A crash of thunder, moments of fright
    My duster coat went sailing out of sight
    I was chilled to the bone
    Standing there alone
    
    Back to my dream's beginning, it occurred true
    That dream now was dimming, as the herd was too
    A cowboy's world and I, a dream creating
    Now it's hesitating
    Now, any old cowboy dream will do
    
    A crash of thunder, moments of fright
    My duster coat went sailing out of sight
    I was chilled to the bone
    Standing there alone
    
    Back to my dream's beginning, it occurred true
    That dream now was dimming, as the herd was too
    A cowboy's world and I, a dream creating
    Now it's hesitating
    Now, any old cowboy dream will do
    
    Ramshackle Adobe (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2006) (song#4152)
    
    I hear that ramshackle adobe (ramshackle adobe)
    In old San Antone (old San Antone)
    I hear it calling for me (calling for me)
    To return to my San Antone home
    
    There's two loving eyes (two loving eyes)
    I'm longing to see (longing to see)
    In that ramshackle adobe (ramshackle adobe)
    In old San Antone (old San Antone)
    
    Those two loving eyes (two loving eyes)
    Are filled now with tears (filled now with tears)
    Now I'm goin' home (I'm goin' home)
    To that ramshackle adobe in old San Antone
    
    When it's branding time (branding time)
    I'll be ridin' back (to that adobe of mine)
    And I'm sorry I roamed (sorry I roamed)
    From that ramshackle adobe in old San Antone
    
    There's two loving eyes (two loving eyes)
    I'm longing to see (longing to see)
    In that ramshackle adobe (ramshackle adobe)
    In old San Antone (old San Antone)
    
    Those two loving eyes (two loving eyes)
    Are filled now with tears (filled now with tears)
    Now I'm goin' home (I'm goin' home)
    To that ramshackle adobe in old San Antone
    
    King Of Texas Swing (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2006) (song#4153)
    
    There was a boy in Texas talked of still
    Who liked to fiddle around
    His name was Bob and he had the will
    To be the best ever found
    
    When he was seventeen, he jumped a freight train
    He just had to leave that Texas farm
    Cause he was mighty keen to ride the path to fame
    And he would do it with his fiddlin' arm
    
    He was the fiddlin' man of the Bob Wills Fiddle Band 
    Everybody knows he's the King, King, King
    There ain't another man who in his boots can stand
    Bob Wills is still the King of Texas Swing
    
    The Lightcrust Doughboys and the Texas Playboys
    And Leon McAuliffe made sweet steel guitar noise
    Bob fiddled around and became a Texas favorite son
    Nobody sang like Milton Brown and Tommy Duncan done
    
    He was the fiddlin' man of the Bob Wills Fiddle Band 
    Everybody knows he's the King, King, King
    There ain't another man who in his boots can stand
    Bob Wills is still the King of Texas Swing
    
    Steel Guitar Rag, Trouble In Mind, San Antonio Rose
    Everybody bragged about the kind of music played
    And anybody who's heard Faded Love for sure knows
    Bob Wills is the swingin' King of the Lone Star State
    
    He was the fiddlin' man of the Bob Wills Fiddle Band 
    Everybody knows he's the King, King, King
    There ain't another man who in his boots can stand
    Bob Wills is still the King of Texas Swing
    
    There ain't another man who in his boots can stand
    Bob Wills is still the King of Texas Swing
    
    Ashes (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2006) (song#4154)
    
    Bluebirds are falling to the ground
    Dark clouds are gathering all around
    I've lost every good thing I've found
    Ashes mean that something was burned
    
    Now, love is a precious thing to gain
    But if love don't last it brings pain
    Sparks can be put out by the rain
    Ashes mean that something was burned
    
    Why she left I guess I'll never know
    She just said that she had to go
    Smoke don't rise from a fire gone cold
    Ashes mean that something was burned
    
    Now, love is a precious thing to gain
    But if love don't last it brings pain
    Sparks can be put out by the rain
    Ashes mean that something was burned
    
    Every love has an up and a down
    I'm down in tears so far I'll drown
    My love has up and left this town
    Ashes mean that something was burned
    
    There's one thing I have surely learned
    Ashes mean that something was burned
    Ashes mean that something was burned
    
    Cowboy Ways (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2006) (song#4155)
    
    I'm a cowboy's son with cowboy ways
    I ranched with my Daddy in younger days
    I rode all the trails with saddle ablaze
    And I'll pass to my son my cowboy ways
    
    The ranch is my living, the prarie my home
    I've been to crowded cities and felt so alone
    I saw the bright lights, knew I didn't belong
    For no sight could outdo my cowboy home  
    
    I'll admit the livin's tough in cowboy ways
    And all the givin' is rough for such little pay
    But I'd never trade it, not for a single day
    There's no way I'd ever give up cowboy ways
    
    I'm a cowboy's son with cowboy ways
    I ranched with my Daddy in younger days
    I rode all the trails with saddle ablaze
    And I'll pass to my son my cowboy ways
    
    I'm a cowboy's son with cowboy ways
    I ranched with my Daddy in younger days
    I rode all the trails with saddle ablaze
    And I'll pass to my son my cowboy ways
    
    Silence Of Hooves (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2006) (song#4156)
    
    The chieftan looked across the sacred ground
    Looked the wide open prarie up and down
    But the buffalo nowhere could be found
    The silence of hooves made a heavy sound
    The silence of hooves made a heavy sound
    
    Now, there's a big change in the wind, I know
    And what's here today must tomorrow go
    Oh, why must the innocent have to know
    And ask, where did all the buffalo go
    
    (instrumental)
    
    The chieftan looked outside his teepee door
    And thought of all the happy times before
    He looked into the sky and winding stream
    A tear fell from his eye that used to gleam
    And now we ask, where is the chieftan's dream
    
    Now, there's a big change in the wind, I know
    And what's here today must tomorrow go
    Oh, why must the innocent have to know
    And ask, where did all the buffalo go
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Years ago there was a bounteous land
    Tilled and cared for by working hands of man
    Will such lovely times ever come again
    Or will the same old rhyme be sung by then
    
    Now, there's a big change in the wind, I know
    And what's here today must tomorrow go
    Oh, why must the innocent have to know
    And ask, where did all the buffalo go
    
    Lost On The Trail (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2006) (song#4157)
    
    Darlin', your pony's lost on the trail
    I've waited at the cabin but in vain I can tell
    Longing for you, longing for you
    To come back through the veil
    
    Darlin', it's not you I blame
    I've walked by the stream all swollen with rain
    Hoping to hear, hoping to hear
    You whis'pring my name
    
    Fire in the sunset
    The smoke of love burns
    I'll let the cabin lamp burn yet
    Should you return
    
    How long has the time been
    That I've stood in the doorway
    Hoping to see, hoping to see
    You returning to me
    
    Fire in the sunset
    The smoke of love burns
    I'll let the cabin lamp burn yet
    Should you return
    
    Darlin', your pony's lost on the trail
    I've waited at the cabin but in vain I can tell
    Longing for you, longing for you
    To come back through the veil
    Darlin', your pony's lost on the trail
    Your pony's lost on the trail
    
    South Out Of Kansas (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2006) (song#4158)
    
    Well, I'm ridin' south out of Kansas
    Ridin' down that old Chisholm trail again
    Yeah, I'm ridin' south out of Kansas
    Across that old Red River Valley stream
    
    I rode drag behind a herd of longhorns
    Looking for a distant future and a dream
    How I missed that state where I was born
    And that cowgirl whose my Texas queen
    
    Well, I'm ridin' south out of Kansas
    Ridin' down that old Chisholm trail again
    Yeah, I'm ridin' south out of Kansas
    Across that old Red River Valley stream
    
    I got this guitar off a cowboy
    Who died along the trail
    I've been playing this here guitar
    Really tried to make it wail
    When I cross that old Red River
    I'll be closer to my darlin's door
    I'm gonna marry that girl and never
    Never gonna ride drag no more
    
    Well, I'm ridin' south out of Kansas
    Ridin' down that old Chisholm trail again
    Yeah, I'm ridin' south out of Kansas
    Across that old Red River Valley stream
    
    Coal Black Train (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2006) (song#4159)
    
    Coal black train
    Don't let me hear your whistle blowin'
    Cause I'm not goin' be riding you again
    Coal black train
    I've already been everywhere you're goin'
    Not many miles of track I haven't seen
    
    Coal black train
    Every time you come rollin' by so fast
    I wonder if it's you or me who's gonna last
    Coal black train
    Your rusty 'ol wheels are scrapin' the track
    Sometimes I wonder if you're comin' back
    
    Coal black train
    I've done grown weary after so many miles
    I'll miss your smoke in these eyes of mine
    Every time I see you, can't help but smile
    When I see you highballing down the line
    
    Coal black train
    Every time you come rollin' by so fast
    I wonder if it's you or me who's gonna last
    
    Coal black train
    I've done grown weary after so many miles
    I'll miss your smoke in these eyes of mine
    Every time I see you, can't help but smile
    When I see you highballing down the line

    Bonnie Marie (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2006) (song#4160)
    
    Tonight while the cattle are lowing
    In the saddle I feel that I still see
    Along the stream slowly flowing
    Me walking with sweet Bonnie Marie
    
    Bonnie Marie, sweet Bonnie Marie
    For you only, my lonely heart sighs 
    I remember your lovely blue eyes
    How I miss you, my Bonnie Marie
    
    Your love you pledged to another
    I knew as I crossed the Great Divide
    That my dream of having you died
    But I can't hide my love for you
    My sweet Bonnie Marie
    
    Bonnie Marie, sweet Bonnie Marie
    For you only, my lonely heart sighs 
    I remember your lovely blue eyes
    How I miss you, my Bonnie Marie
    
    How I miss you, my Bonnie Marie
    
    Bitterroot Bonnie (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2006) (song#4161)
    
    Out on the Bitterroot, she rode the trails above the town
    The sound of the hoot owl's hoot was the only sound around
    Searching for her cowboy to kiss her tears away
    Nothing could destroy her dreams of yesterday
    
    Bitterroot Bonnie they named her
    Riding in the sun
    For her cowboy, Bonnie yearned
    Bitterroot Bonnie they named her
    Riding in the sun
    Waiting for her cowboy to return
    
    They said he was a wrangler who roamed from town to town
    Some said he was a danger who only brought her down
    But he was just a cowboy who faded in the mist
    And Bitterroot Bonnie dreamed of the cowboy she had kissed
    
    Bitterroot Bonnie they named her
    Riding in the sun
    For her cowboy, Bonnie yearned
    Bitterroot Bonnie they named her
    Riding in the sun
    Waiting for her cowboy to return
    
    Now the trails above the town she no longer rides
    Dreams no longer follow her around
    Now yonder rides a cowboy looking for his bride
    His tears are falling to the ground
    Bitterroot Bonnie has faded in the mist
    No longer dreaming of her cowboy's kiss
    
    Bitterroot Bonnie they named her
    Riding in the sun
    For her cowboy, Bonnie yearned
    Bitterroot Bonnie they named her
    Riding in the sun
    Waiting for her cowboy to return
    
    Wild Mountain Rose (Larry W. Jones 11/21/2006) (song#4162)
    
    A wild mountain rose
    Is found where the sun breaks through
    A wild mountain rose
    If found alone sometimes makes her blue
    
    A rose can only grow in the bright daylight
    It's just an artificial glow under neon light
    
    But you are a rose, a wild mountain rose
    Trying hard to grow where there is no light
    
    Let me be the one to show you true love
    Our love can be one that grows and grows
    I'll show you the sun that shines from above
    If you'll just be my wild mountain rose
    
    A rose can only grow in the bright daylight
    It's just an artificial glow under neon light
    
    Let me be the one to show you true love
    Our love can be one that grows and grows
    I'll show you the sun that shines from above
    If you'll just be my wild mountain rose
    
    Ain't Gonna ride That Goodnight Trail (Larry W. Jones 11/21/2006) (song#4163)
    
    I'd rather be in Texas with cactus and rattlesnakes
    Than to be in Montana's cold for goodness sakes
    
    Ain't gonna ride that Goodnight trail
    Ain't gonna ride that Goodnight trail
    Ain't gonna ride that Goodnight trail
    Ain't gonna ride that Goodnight trail no more
    
    I drove longhorns up to Cheyenne
    On that Goodnight-Loving trail
    Next thing I knew the snow began
    And man, I nearly froze my tail
    
    Charlie, trail boss Charlie, why didn't you tell me so
    You double crossed me with all that Montana snow 
    
    El Paso is a warmer place, San Antonio sure is too
    Ridin' back at a steady pace, find me a cowgirl true 
    
    I'm goin' to build a ranch house in a pretty valley low
    When my Bonnie cowgirl rides, I'll see her tresses flow
    
    My horse died one cold Tuesday night
    Wednesday I was at the railroad siding
    No horse on Thursday was my plight
    So, Friday on a longhorn I was riding
    
    A thousand miles south I rode alone
    And I married that San Antonio belle
    From now on Texas will be my home
    Ain't gonna ride that Goodnight trail no more
    
    High Lonesome Kid (Larry W. Jones 11/21/2006) (song#4164)
    
    When a cowgirl's feeling blue
    She cries out her insides
    When a cowgirl's feeling blue
    She cries out her insides
    But when a cowboy's feeling blue
    He saddles a pony and rides
    
    Now when I see that high lonesome trail
    Yeah, when I see that high lonesome trail
    I wish I was ridin' home again across that Great Divide
    
    This high lonesome trail is as blue as night is black
    This high lonesome trail is as blue as night is black
    No wonder I'm so doggone blue and sad
    
    I've got the high lonesome trail blues so bad
    I've got the high lonesome trail blues so bad
    I wonder if I'm ever gonna get back
    
    I'm tired of ridin' from town to town
    I'm tired of ridin' from town to town
    Ain't no good work here I've found
    
    Don't know why that woman did me like she did
    Don't know why that woman did me like she did
    How long am I gonna be this high lonesome kid
    
    How long am I gonna be this high lonesome kid
    
    Down Along The Rio Grande (Larry W. Jones 11/22/2006) (song#4165)
    
    Down along the Rio Grande
    South of the border music there was playing
    Down along the Rio Grande
    Mexican skirts and palm trees were swaying
    A lovely senorita told me that she loved me
    Underneath the Mexican stars high above me
    So I told her that I would be staying
    
    Down along the Rio Grande
    She and I would be strolling hand in hand
    She would be my girl, I would be her man 
    Down along the Rio Grande
    
    Now in my ears I seem to hear those border sounds
    But there's been too few ups and too many downs
    How I wish once more I could see glancing
    The eyes of that girl when we were dancing
    Down along the Rio Grande
    I guess it's only in dreams where I'll see
    That place along the river where I long to be
    
    Down along the Rio Grande
    She and I would be strolling hand in hand
    She would be my girl, I would be her man 
    Down along the Rio Grande
    
    Down along the Rio Grande
    She and I would be strolling hand in hand
    She would be my girl, I would be her man 
    Down along the Rio Grande
    
    Mudcat John (Larry W. Jones 11/22/2006) (song#4166)
    
    Mama said stay away from the river
    And don't go fishin' with Mudcat John
    That 'ol black man's hair was silver
    After years of pickin' cotton was done
    
    Mudcat John was born in Vicksburg
    Mudcat John had been a slave, you know
    But to me he was a brave and good man
    Mudcat John was my best friend
    Many long years ago
    
    Mama said stay away from the river
    And don't go fishin' with Mudcat John
    That 'ol black man's hair was silver
    After years of pickin' cotton was done
    
    I dream of huntin' squirrel and possom
    And white cotton fields of toil and woe
    Scent of Vicksburg's magnolia blossoms
    And 'ol Mudcat John workin' with his hoe
    
    Mama said stay away from the river
    And don't go fishin' with Mudcat John
    That 'ol black man's hair was silver
    After years of pickin' cotton was done
    
    Mudcat John was born in Vicksburg
    Mudcat John had been a slave, you know
    But to me he was a brave and good man
    Mudcat John was my best friend
    Many long years ago
    
    Please Come To El Paso (Larry W. Jones 11/22/2006) (song#4167)
    
    She would meet him tonight in El Paso
    But he was just a bandito, they said
    He'll only break your heart, you know
    So, don't let your heart rule your head
    
    They told of rope scars on his throat
    Some day the next one he'd not cheat
    But then a compadre handed a note
    From the vaquero she wanted to meet
    
    Please come to El Paso, por favor
    When the full moon is shining its light
    Please come to El Paso, mi amor
    We'll ride across the border tonight
    
    In the shadows of an adobe cantina
    They met where two horses were tied
    He whispered his love to his Sabrina
    As the horses ran swift in their stride
    
    Please come to El Paso, por favor
    When the full moon is shining its light
    Please come to El Paso, mi amor
    We'll ride across the border tonight
    
    And now they are safe in old Sonora
    She and the man who was a bandito
    Bandito's sombrero is now a fedora
    And Sabrina smiles at their bambino
    
    When the moon is shining so bright
    Sabrina holds her bandito's words tight
    She remembers that night in El Paso
    And the note that he sent long ago
    
    Please come to El Paso, por favor
    When the full moon is shining its light
    Please come to El Paso, mi amor
    We'll ride across the border tonight
    
    Neck Deep In The Blues (Larry W. Jones 11/22/2006) (song#4168)
    
    Lately I'm mulling things over
    About this heart so full of tears
    I'm not drunk, just stone sober
    But I'm in blues up to my ears
    
    My bluebird long ago flew away
    Wish I could follow in his shoes
    The song that I sing, as they say
    I wallow neck deep in the blues
    
    Lately I'm mulling things over
    About this heart so full of tears
    I'm not drunk, just stone sober
    But I'm in blues up to my ears
    
    No need to ask why I'm lonely
    Love makes up its own rules
    Now I'm just by myself only
    And I'm neck deep in the blues
    
    Lately I'm mulling things over
    About this heart so full of tears
    I'm not drunk, just stone sober
    But I'm in blues up to my ears
    
    No need to ask why I'm lonely
    Love makes up its own rules
    Now I'm just by myself only
    And I'm neck deep in the blues
    
    Just Keep On Going (Larry W. Jones 11/22/2006) (song#4169)
    
    I wondered where you went to
    Ever since you went away
    And I wondered if you'd come
    Back here again another day
    
    These tears of mine keep flowing
    Like they did that fateful day
    I guess there's just no knowing
    There's no grateful words to say
    
    You know, I asked you not to go
    I thought you'd come back some day
    But since you're not, then this know
    Just keep on going
    If you're going to come my way
    
    I guess that you're the trav'lin' kind
    I guess you've made up your mind
    So, as these tears are flowing today
    Just keep on going
    If you're going to come my way
    Just keep on going
    If you're going to come my way
    
    Little Garden Wall (Larry W. Jones 11/22/2006) (song#4170)
    
    He used to bring her flowers
    She would set them on the window sill
    No one could count the hours
    Spent in her garden where she would till
    
    Over her little garden wall
    She could hear the bluebird call
    Two partners heart to heart
    Until one in death did part
    The flowers she now grows is all
    
    Now the flowers that she tends
    Speak of love that transcends
    The music of the bluebird's call
    Over her little garden wall
    
    Young folks nowadays know everything
    But everything they know doesn't last
    For they don't see how true love can be
    If only they knew they just need to ask
    
    They never look at the flowers
    Never hear the bluebird's call
    They don't know of the power
    Of love by a little garden wall
    
    Over her little garden wall
    She could hear the bluebird call
    Two partners heart to heart
    Until one in death did part
    The flowers she now grows is all
    
    Now the flowers that she tends
    Speak of love that transcends
    The music of the bluebird's call
    Over her little garden wall
    
    Snow Has Fallen (Larry W. Jones 11/22/2006) (song#4171)
    
    The sun came out, the sky turned blue
    So how did it come about, I wish I knew
    Cause snow has fallen, fallen on her heart
    
    The broadcaster said the weather was OK
    But he didn't ask her why she went away
    And snow has fallen, fallen on her heart
    
    Now all I feel is misery and woe
    Oh, how was I to know she would part
    The feeling is like blankets of snow
    From the snow that's fallen on her heart
    
    I knew my friends would want to know
    Why she decided to depart
    I can't comprehend why cold winds blow
    But snow has fallen, fallen on her heart
    
    Now all I feel is misery and woe
    Oh, how was I to know she would part
    The feeling is like blankets of snow
    From the snow that's fallen on her heart
    
    I knew my friends would want to know
    Why she decided to depart
    I can't comprehend why cold winds blow
    But snow has fallen, fallen on her heart
    
    Cowgirl Divine (Larry W. Jones 11/23/2006) (song#4172)
    
    The sweetest cowgirl in cow town
    Soon will be my cowgirl wife
    All the cowboys for miles around
    Are jealous of my cowboy life
    
    She's everything I hoped for
    There's no sweeter cowgirl I know
    She's the only girl I adore
    I'll always love that cowgirl so
    
    So when you see that shy cowgirl 
    Just remember she's my cowgirl
    There's no cowboy in this land
    Gonna steal her from my hand
    
    She said she'd be only mine
    That cowgirl who's so divine
    Don't even try, night or day
    You can't steal her away
    Cause she's mine all mine
    She's my cowgirl divine
    
    So when you see that shy cowgirl 
    Just remember she's my cowgirl
    There's no cowboy in this land
    Gonna steal her from my hand
    Cause she's mine all mine
    She's my cowgirl divine
    
    Bred In Texas (Larry W. Jones 11/23/2006) (song#4173)
    
    Back when I was in my younger days
    I called at a ranch down Texas way
    My heart was beating like the band
    There stood sweet Sue, blushing red
    She had promised that we would wed
    And now I was asking for her hand
    
    I told her mother of my story
    How our love would be of glory
    Her mother put down her needle and thread
    She looked at us and smiled and said
    
    This girl was bred in Texas
    Where bluebonnets grow so blue
    Sunshine that warms up Texas
    Warms her face and manners too
    This girl was bred in Texas
    The only thing that I'll expect is
    Is that your love for her is true
    
    Now many years have sailed away
    But I still remember that sunny day
    When to that Texas country ranch I came
    And the happiest part of my life
    Has been my best friend and wife
    The sun that warms her heart is the same
    
    This girl was bred in Texas
    Where bluebonnets grow so blue
    Sunshine that warms up Texas
    Warms her face and manners too
    This girl was bred in Texas
    The only thing that I'll expect is
    Is that your love for her is true
    
    Purple Sage Texas Trail (Larry W. Jones 11/23/2006) (song#4174)
    
    I remember a winding trail
    Where the purple sage would swirl
    Over a wild west Texas hill
    And in that wild Texas west
    I rode with the prettiest Texas girl
    That cowgirl is with me still
    
    A brown Texas cowboy with a freckled nose
    Gave a cowgirl the sweetest desert rose
    Riding over the hills and through the dale
    On that wild west purple sage Texas trail
    
    Now that purple sage Texas trail is winding
    Through many years of memories
    Pages of past and present are now binding
    Dreams that seem wonderful to me
    
    I dream that I'm in my young cowboy days
    A brown Texas cowboy with a freckled nose
    On that wild west purple sage Texas trail
    With a cowgirl whose sweet as a desert rose
    
    Now that purple sage Texas trail is winding
    Through many years of memories
    Pages of past and present are now binding
    Dreams that seem wonderful to me
    
    I dream that I'm in my young cowboy days
    A brown Texas cowboy with a freckled nose
    On that wild west purple sage Texas trail
    With a cowgirl whose sweet as a desert rose
    
    I'm Just Like You (Larry W. Jones 11/24/2006) (song#4175)
    
    You say you're lonely and you're blue
    And that you don't know what to do
    To take away a love that died
    Think about the day you said goodbye
    And the many ways you made me cry
    Well, I too am just like you
    I'm lonely and I'm blue
    
    Darling, I'm blue and I'm lonely too
    To this loneliness there seems no end
    Ever since we've been apart
    I'm just like you
    I haven't found another who can mend
    My blue and lonely heart
    
    I tried to find it in a song
    Words that would explain what went wrong
    But the reason's lost somewhere in the wind
    I'm just like you
    I don't know where to go
    But I guess we'll never love again
    
    Darling, I'm blue and I'm lonely too
    To this loneliness there seems no end
    Ever since we've been apart
    I'm just like you
    I haven't found another who can mend
    My blue and lonely heart
    
    I tried to find it in a song
    Words that would explain what went wrong
    But the reason's lost somewhere in the wind
    I'm just like you
    I don't know where to go
    But I guess we'll never love again
    
    I'll Walk The Country Road (Larry W. Jones 11/24/2006) (song#4176)
    
    My Daddy worked hard with his hands
    His life was anything but an easy song
    He said most folks don't understand
    That the easy road can lead you wrong
    
    I'll walk the country road
    That's where I started and that's all I know
    It might not be easy the way it goes
    But I wasn't born for bright light shows
    So, I'll walk the country road
    
    Some folks like to drive in the fastest lane
    But life ain't worth all the stress and pain
    When it's over and done, the one they rode
    Is the one we know as the dead end road
    
    I'll walk the country road
    That's where I started and that's all I know
    It might not be easy the way it goes
    But I wasn't born for bright light shows
    So, I'll walk the country road
    
    It might not be easy the way it goes
    But I wasn't born for bright light shows
    So, I'll walk the country road
    
    After The Beep (Larry W. Jones 11/24/2006) (song#4177)
    
    By the time he thought to call her up
    Once again he was late and stuck at work
    So he thought he'd better skip the old routine
    He called home and counted the rings
    Then he thought she had gone beserk
    These words were on the message machine
    
    Dear John, leave a message after the beep
    But I won't be list'nin' to hear you weep
    That job of yours don't pay enough to keep me here alone
    And don't bother rushing home right now
    I'm through brushing tears back anyhow
    Just leave a message after the beep because I'm gone
    
    He used to call to say when he'd arrive
    Never worked past that nine to five
    But that was before things took a dive
    Working past nine to five, leavin' her alone
    
    Once again he was late and stuck at work
    He called home and counted the rings
    Then he thought she had gone beserk
    These words were on the message machine
    
    Dear John, leave a message after the beep
    But I won't be list'nin' to hear you weep
    That job of yours don't pay enough to keep me here alone
    And don't bother rushing home right now
    I'm through brushing tears back anyhow
    Just leave a message after the beep because I'm gone
    
    Eighteen Wheels At Midnight (Larry W. Jones 11/24/2006) (song#4178)
    
    The town I'm from is so doggone little
    Only had one caution light in the middle
    At night I'd go down and whittle the time away
    I'd listen to the horn from an eighteen wheeler
    That old highway called and I could feel 'er
    I'd dream of eighteen wheels at midnight
    Rolling on that road lookin' for the light of day
    
    I grew up like a lonesome pup
    Flew around in my pickup truck
    Tryin' to escape from that little town of mine
    Can't say it didn't treat me right
    But I dreamed of eighteen wheels at midnight
    Every time I heard a big 'ol diesel whine
    
    I put my dreams on that white dotted line
    And I plotted how to escape that little town
    But somehow my dreams all let me down
    Cause I'm still here just wasting time
    
    Why I stayed, well it's hard to say
    Life in a little town ain't too harried
    Things came along, got in the way
    Like kids 'n mortgage, bein' married
    I still fly around in my pickup truck
    Payin' bills when the money's tight
    Well, I guess I just ran out of luck
    Dreamin' of eighteen wheels at midnight
    
    Honey Grab The Money (Larry W. Jones 11/25/2006) (song#4179)
    
    Honey grab the money, hurricane's comin'
    We all know what a big blow means
    It's headin' for shore, be here by mornin'
    Don't wanna get caught in New Orleans
    
    Weatherman pointed to the storm on the TV
    Said the flood at the levees wasn't far behind
    Honey grab the money, cause you'll agree
    Ain't gonna be funny when a hurricane whines
    
    If the truck don't start, we'll be thummin'
    Livin' off FEMA eatin' gov'ment bread 'n beans
    Honey grab the money, hurricane's comin'
    Don't wanna get caught in New Orleans
    
    Now the interstate is a parking lot
    Gonna run out of gas goin' this slow
    Lost it all except the love we've got
    The hurricane's comin' is all I know
    
    Seems you cain't ever win for losing
    Gotta get to Houston for a change of scene
    Find a back road and we'll be cruising
    Don't wanna get caught in New Orleans
    
    Honey grab the money, hurricane's comin'
    We all know what a big blow means
    It's headin' for shore, be here by mornin'
    Don't wanna get caught in New Orleans
    
    In Love With Only You (Larry W. Jones 11/25/2006) (song#4180)
    
    Well, there's no perfect life, as they say
    But I found a perfect wife in you that day
    And the only way to say my love is true
    Is to say that I'm in love with only you
    
    This imperfect life may bring sorrow and pain
    And daily strife may make tears fall like rain
    But through it all, there holds an anchor true
    My ship is saved, I'm in love with only you
    
    Morning, noon and night I send thanks above
    For having someone like you
    I sing a tune of delight when I stop and think of
    Why I'm in love with only you 
    
    Darlin' you know I'll always stay
    Horses couldn't pull me away
    I could never look at someone new
    Cause I'm in love with only you
    I could never look at someone new
    Cause I'm in love with only you
    
    Fields Forever Green (Larry W. Jones 11/25/2006) (song#4181)
    
    Some old fields stay forever green
    Of those are the ones I now dream
    I left no footprints in the sands of time
    No hints of anything I could call mine
    
    Now I'm an old man in an old plowed field
    The season is late in cold number three
    Winter is here and cold snow it will yield
    Will the fields stay forever green for me
    
    Just a beat up old life and all alone
    The best fruit has fallen from the tree
    Have the fields forever green all gone
    Or is there at least one waiting for me
    
    Out my window I scan, I see a young man
    He's pointing to the hills and valley between
    His invitation chills my lonely life's span
    It's time to recline 'neath fields forever green
    
    Some old fields stay forever green
    Of those are the ones I now dream
    Of those are the ones I now dream
    
    Cowboy Dreamer (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2006) (song#4182)
    
    The yellow aspen leaves have fallen
    Valleys hear the snowy winds a-callin'
    The snow goose doesn't mind the Wintertime
    An old cowboy 'round the campfire embers
    Holds a cup of coffee warm and remembers
    All the trails that he had ridden in his time
    
    Tomorrow came today, cowboy dreamer
    Sorrow came today in dreams of yesterday
    
    When I was just a lad in my teens
    I had lots of wild and wayward dreams
    And yearned to ride the trails of Summertime
    Just like the cowboy code
    Down all the trails I rode
    Dreamin' of tomorrow, I left yesterday behind
    
    Yesterday, tomorrow was so far away
    Yesterday I was ridin' wild and free
    Tomorrow came today, cowboy dreamer
    Sorrow came today in dreams of yesterday
    
    From Laramie to Cheyenne
    And down to San Antone
    I rode trails without a plan
    The open range was my home
    In the frontier towns and bars
    Never a tear for all my scars
    Yesterday, I dreamed only of tomorrow
    Sorrow came today in dreams of yesterday
    
    Yesterday, tomorrow was so far away
    Yesterday I was ridin' wild and free
    Tomorrow came today, cowboy dreamer
    Sorrow came today in dreams of yesterday
    
    Cowgirl Under The Moon (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2006) (song#4183)
    
    A cowgirl under the moon
    Makes a cowboy do all he can do for that girl
    A cowgirl under the moon
    Is a wonder of the range and a cowboy's world
    
    From her hat to her boots
    Makes a cowboy glad of his cowboy roots
    A cowgirl under the moon
    Is a wonder of the range and a cowboy's world
    
    A cowgirl under the moon
    Doesn't have to come from high society
    Just a good 'ol country cowgirl
    Can be a good 'ol cowboy's propriety
    
    A cowgirl under the moon
    Makes a cowboy do all he can do for that girl
    A cowgirl under the moon
    Is a wonder of the range and a cowboy's world
    
    A cowgirl under the moon
    Will soon be this cowboy's world
    
    Long Tall Texan Ain't So Tall (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2006) (song#4184)
    
    I rode up from Waco on a Conestoga freight
    Thinkin' Wyoming was a bigger wide open state
    Now I'm here swingin' on Cheyenne's rodeo gate
    Thinkin' of Waco and a Texas lone star date
    
    Don't call me just another fool
    I'm just the biggest one of all
    Trails I've ridden all were cruel
    This long tall Texan ain't so tall
    Stuck up here in old Cheyenne
    A-beggin' with a Texas drawl
    Bummin' a ride any way I can
    Thumbin' for waco by the Fall
    
    I done rode that lonesome roadway
    List'nin' to the lone coyote's call
    It was lots of fun doin' it my way
    Now, this long tall Texan ain't so tall
    
    Don't call me just another fool
    I'm just the biggest one of all
    Trails I've ridden all were cruel
    This long tall Texan ain't so tall
    Stuck up here in old Cheyenne
    A-beggin' with a Texas drawl
    Bummin' a ride any way I can
    Thumbin' for waco by the Fall
    
    It was lots of fun doin' it my way
    Now, this long tall Texan ain't so tall
    
    Too Long On The Trail (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2006) (song#4185)
    
    I've stayed a little too long on the trail
    Cottonwood scent is disappearin' from the air
    Fencing off all the ranges just like a jail
    Cattle drives are ending like a funeral prayer
    I'm riding the trail alone, cowboy life is almost gone
    I've stayed a little too long on the trail
     
    I think even little children can realize
    The sun is setting on a cowboy's life
    Before our very eyes
    The trail rides and the cattle drives will end
    Real cowboys will never ride the trail again 
    
    We thought cowboys would never end their song
    If we had only known we can't pretend for so long
    The beginning of the modern world has already set in
    And now I see the beginning of the cowboy's end
    
    I've stayed a little too long on the trail
    Cottonwood scent is disappearin' from the air
    Fencing off all the ranges just like a jail
    Cattle drives are ending like a funeral prayer
    I'm riding the trail alone, cowboy life is almost gone
    I've stayed a little too long on the trail
    
    Golden Wings Of Time (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2006) (song#4186)
    
    The western sun is setting, quickly setting
    As evening shadows come to claim their own
    Eyes that no longer see are not regretting
    The golden way she raised a cowboy's son
    
    Oh, asleep is she who sincerely loved me
    Not for what I was, but should have been
    Autumn leaves and those that fall in Winter
    Can they ever turn from gold to green again
    
    In her easy ways she loved me completely
    Summer days were of the warmest kind
    No other love could come to me as sweetly
    As she who's flown on golden wings of time
    
    On a poor cowboy's wages she raised a son
    And taught us both what true love means
    Now she's gone like the western setting sun
    Like a lovely swan on time's golden wings
    
    In her easy ways she loved me completely
    Summer days were of the warmest kind
    No other love could come to me as sweetly
    As she who's flown on golden wings of time
    
    Funny Thing About Cowboys (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2006) (song#4187)
    
    It's a funny thing about cowboys
    When they find a trail that's looking fine
    They don't care if time destroys
    All the good things they leave behind
    
    Some say that I'm just a cowboy dreaming
    Riding wherever the trail takes me to
    Some say my smile is just from scheming
    All the things that lonely cowboys do
    
    You can call me a self made ranch hand
    It doesn't take a fool to understand
    
    I thought the trail led to fortune
    Cowboy Dreaming is my middle name
    The trail disappeared into the sun
    Eatin' beans and bread is the same
    
    There's no way to see the future
    Like the way you know the past
    Going with the flow brings danger
    That future dreams might not last
    
    You can call me a self made ranch hand
    It doesn't take a fool to understand
    
    I thought the trail led to fortune
    Cowboy Dreaming is my middle name
    The trail disappeared into the sun
    Eatin' beans and bread is the same
    
    It's a funny thing about cowboys
    When they find a trail that's looking fine
    They don't care if time destroys
    All the good things they leave behind
    
    This Common Rose (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2006) (song#4188)
    
    You passed over an orchid
    How that happened, heaven knows
    You passed over an orchid
    And married this common rose
    
    Darling, now you've come to realize
    That all she wanted was fancy clothes
    An orchid might seem from paradise
    But true love comes from this common rose
    
    At times it really breaks my heart
    To think that I was number two
    If I had known that from the start
    Dear, I might not have married you
    
    You passed over an orchid
    How that happened, heaven knows
    You passed over an orchid
    And married this common rose
    
    - instrumental -
    
    Now, you say there is no secret love
    So I give to you one that grows
    Every star knows from up above
    True love comes from this common rose
    
    You passed over an orchid
    How that happened, heaven knows
    You passed over an orchid
    And married this common rose
    
    Cottonwood Tree (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2006) (song#4189)
    
    Why is this trail so sad and lonely
    The tale is of a faded love
    One that will never come again
    Under moon and stars above
    
    Oh, bury me 'neath the cottonwood
    Under the cottonwood tree
    For she must not have understood
    How much she meant to me
    
    I heard her say that she loved me
    How could I see her words untrue
    The cottonwood tree has whispered
    Her false love wasn't meant for you
    
    Oh, bury me 'neath the cottonwood
    Under the cottonwood tree
    For she must not have understood
    How much she meant to me
    
    Tomorrow was our marriage day
    On what lost trail could she be
    Her carriage has gone another way
    She's withdrawn her love from me
    
    Oh, bury me 'neath the cottonwood
    Under the cottonwood tree
    For she must not have understood
    How much she meant to me
    
    Oh, bury me 'neath the cottonwood tree
    
    Cowboy Moon (Larry w. Jones 11/29/2006) (song#4190)
    
    The moon is yellow, I'm a happy fellow
    The barn dance is getting under way
    I'll be meeting my sweet Betsy soon
    Tonight's the waltz of the cowboy moon
    
    Cowboy moon, yellow and gold
    Beams of light on the high chaparral
    I've got sweet Betsy here to hold
    We'll waltz tonight to a cowboy tune
    Shine down on us you cowboy moon
    
    Carriages and wagons 'round the barn
    Tie my pony to a hitchin' post I see
    Walk to the barn where I see Betsy
    Darn, her mama's eyes are on me
    
    A horn and a guitar and a resined bow
    Fiddlin' up every cowboy song they know
    Everybody's dancin' under moonlight glow
    My boots like dancin' to a waltz that's slow
    
    One more dance to the Cotton Eyed Joe
    Take Betsy outside the barn danceroom
    Tell her I love her and we''ll marry soon
    And we'll waltz 'neath the cowboy moon
    
    Colorado Valley Cowgirl (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2006) (song#4191)
    
    I rode away from the ranch in the valley
    And on many trails I roamed around
    Now I hear Colorado mountains callin'
    Goin' back to that valley to settle down
    
    Oh, how I miss that Colorado valley
    And that sweet cowgirl I left behind
    I've been gone but I've never forgot her
    I'm gonna make that cowgirl mine
    
    When I see her ranch I'll wonder
    If everything is still the same
    When I see the smile of my darlin'
    I'm gonna ask her to change her name
    
    Oh, how I miss that Colorado valley
    And that sweet cowgirl I left behind
    I've been gone but I've never forgot her
    I'm gonna make that cowgirl mine
    
    Hunt The Wild Buffalo (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2006) (song#4192)
    
    Come all you young cowboys
    Who have roaming on your mind
    Up to the broad wide plains
    We'll saddle up, our trail to find
    Up the mountain trails we'll go
    And settle by the wild Colorado
    
    Whether sun or shady snow
    Through plains and mountains we'll wander
    And we'll hunt the wild buffalo
    Through plains and mountains we'll wander
    And we'll hunt the wild buffalo
    
    Now all you pretty cowgirls
    Who look so lovely in your form
    Yarn for us the best of clothes
    That we'll need to keep us warm
    For we'll ride the trail to Colorado
    And we'll hunt the wild buffalo
     
    There are fishes in the streams
    Waiting there just for our lures
    We're off to find our dreams
    Our dreams we'll find I am sure
    There we'll find the buck and doe
    And we'll hunt the wild buffalo
    
    Come all you young cowboys
    Who have roaming on your mind
    Up to the broad wide plains
    We'll saddle up, our trail to find
    Up the mountain trails we'll go
    And settle by the wild Colorado
    
    And we'll hunt the wild buffalo
    And we'll hunt the wild buffalo
    
    Wrangler's Saddle (Larry W. Jones 11/30/2006) (song#4193)
    
    Hurrah for the wrangler's saddle, hurrah for the bullwhip's blow
    Hurrah for the trusty cowboys, ridin' o'er dusty trails we know
    O'er dusty trails night and day, where the Texas longhorns stray
    On the prarie they will feed, on the wild and lowly Jimson weed
    
    Ride your ponies, slack the rein, herd dogies 'cross the plain
    Crack those whips like thunder, then sing a soothing cowboy song
    Make all those longhorns wonder, why we drove them from San Antone
    On the prarie they will feed, on the wild and lowly Jimson weed
    
    Knee deep in the purple sage, longhorns are growin', I can tell
    Down valleys where rivers rage, we'll watch their bellies swell
    Get 'em as fat as they can get, more than when this drive began
    Keep 'em movin', ain't there yet, gotta make it to old Cheyenne
    
    So, fit me a wrangler's saddle, and boots with a flashing spur
    A bullwhip that'll rattle, that'll burn those longhorns' fur
    Those longhorn cattle we'll brand, we'll brand 'em all I swear
    There ain't a better cowboy band, than Texas cowboys anywhere
    
    Hurrah for the wrangler's saddle, hurrah for the bullwhip's blow
    Hurrah for the trusty cowboys, ridin' o'er dusty trails we know
    O'er dusty trails night and day, where the Texas longhorns stray
    On the prarie they will feed, on the wild and lowly Jimson weed
    
    Old Red Caboose (Larry W. Jones 11/30/2006) (song#4194)
    
    He was feeble of leg and of limb
    Glasses told his sight was dim
    He put his pocket watch away
    After forty years of railroad use
    And he thought about the days
    Spent in the old red caboose
    
    Yes, he was feeble of leg and of limb
    And glasses told his sight was dim
    He could barely see the signal's glow
    Though he could hear the whistle's blow
    He knew there was no more excuse
    For ridin' in the old red caboose
    
    Every day younger men would show
    And he knew it was time for him to go
    He knew they'd be tested by the rain
    And when the train plowed the snow
    But it was time for him to turn it loose
    And say goodbye to the old red caboose
    
    He put his pocket watch away
    After forty years of railroad use
    And he thought about the days
    Spent in the old red caboose
    And he thought about the days
    Spent in the old red caboose
    
    All Ye Roving Cowboys (Larry W. Jones 11/30/2006) (song#4195)
    
    Gather 'round all ye roving cowboys
    Cross the praries we will fly
    We'll raise the dust up from the earth
    To cover the dry western sky
    
    Round the campfire wolves will dance
    And 'round the cattle we will stay
    A cowboy's life is one of hard romance
    Drivin' longhorns is our cowboy way
    
    Gather 'round all ye roving cowboys
    Cross the praries we will fly
    We'll raise the dust up from the earth
    To cover the dry western sky
    
    Our cookie, he just loves us all
    He cooks over hickory wood
    We can't wait to hear his call
    Though his coffee's never good
    
    We cowboys have that magic touch
    Though we'll never a magician be
    Cowboys don't ever ask for much
    Just a pony and range for ridin' free
    
    Hooves are the sound of beating drums
    Like the songs the cowboys love to hear
    Give him a guitar and hear him strum
    For anyone who'll bother to lend an ear
    
    Well, a cowboy rides the range all day
    And one thing is crystal clear
    He prides himself in the cowboy way
    That cowboy way he holds so dear
    
    Texas In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 11/30/2006) (song#4196)
    
    I've never tried to be a city slicker
    The city's got nothin' that I can use
    I'm a Texas cowboy, a real boot kicker
    Pickin' out the best of honk tonk blues
    
    Some folks ask me where I come from
    There's only one place I know to start
    I was born in the country so I'd become
    A country boy with Texas in my heart
    
    I've never seen a state that's any wider
    Where you can find so many country miles
    Texas is the king of real bronc riders
    Buckin' out the chute in rodeo style
    
    Some folks ask me where I come from
    There's only one place I know to start
    I was born in the country so I'd become
    A country boy with Texas in my heart
    
    I've never tried to be a city slicker
    The city's got nothin' that I can use
    I'm a Texas cowboy, a real boot kicker
    Pickin' out the best of honk tonk blues
    
    Some folks ask me where I come from
    There's only one place I know to start
    I was born in the country so I'd become
    A country boy with Texas in my heart
    
    Riding The Trail In Search Of You (Larry W. Jones 11/30/2006) (song#4197)
    
    Somewhere in the night I can hear the cattle low
    Someone in the night holds the cowgirl I love so
    Like a lost trail crossing streams
    I've lost the girl of all my dreams
    Now I ride the trail alone since I watched you go
    
    Now I'm riding the trail in search of you
    Looking for one with eyes of blue
    Now you must be miles away
    And I fear I'll never find the way
    Now I'm riding the trail in search of you
    
    By night the campfire lights the gloom
    But the fire in my heart would light the moon
    How much you're missed, you cannot tell
    But I can tell this heart of mine's not well
    While I'm riding the trail in search of you
    
    Now I'm riding the trail in search of you
    Looking for one with eyes of blue
    Now you must be miles away
    And I fear I'll never find the way
    Now I'm riding the trail in search of you
    
    Now I'm riding the trail in search of you
    Looking for one with eyes of blue
    Now you must be miles away
    And I fear I'll never find the way
    Now I'm riding the trail in search of you
    
    If Your Love For Me Should Ever Die (Larry W. Jones 11/30/2006) (song#4198)
    
    If your love for me should ever die
    Like flower petals when they fall
    Then you would take away my smile
    And you'd leave me here with tears
    Since my love for you is true
    Tell me that you love me too
    For I could never live the lonely years
    
    I was on a trail alone
    Riding one I'd never known
    When I saw a lovely vision passing by
    Fortune played its part
    And you gave to me your heart
    My heart would ever groan
    If your love for me should ever die
    
    If your love for me should ever die
    Like flower petals when they fall
    Then you would take away my smile
    And you'd leave me here with tears
    Since my love for you is true
    Tell me that you love me too
    For I could never live the lonely years
    
    When a flower petal falls away
    They say the rose will bloom again in May
    My love for you is something I can't hide
    Please don't become a memory
    Save your sweet kiss for only me
    I'd never find another bride
    If your love for me should ever die
    
    For Old Trains (Larry W. Jones 11/30/2006) (song#4199)
    
    Me and my brothers, when we were boys
    Didn't bring our mother too much joy
    When we'd sneak off to watch the trains rolling by
    I remember that lonesome whistle sound
    That our mother heard for miles around
    We'd wave and the conductor would wave goodbye
    
    Now those old trains don't run like they used to
    There came hard times in railroad land
    Everybody was poor, couldn't lend a hand
    Shiny new locomotives go flying by
    For old trains I hang my head and sigh
    
    On the banks of the San Jacinto we would stand
    Three boys with fishin' poles in our hands
    We'd marvel at the smoke so black
    Coming from that old trains' smokin' stack
    For old trains I still dream at night
    
    When an old locomotive whistle whined
    It would call us down to the river to play
    Now they're still in these dreams of mine
    Dreams that seem will never drift away
    
    Now those old trains don't run like they used to
    There came hard times in railroad land
    Everybody was poor, couldn't lend a hand
    Shiny new locomotives go flying by
    For old trains I hang my head and sigh
    
    Lonely Whippoorwill (Larry W. Jones 11/30/2006) (song#4200)
    
    Lonely whippoorwill, lonely whippoorwill
    I hear your lonesome cry from the hill
    You're sad and it's bad
    That your love has found another
    I know just how you feel, lonely whippoorwill
    
    Lonely whippoorwill, if things were different
    You wouldn't have to sing your lonely song alone
    You and I are the same, who's to blame
    Lonely whippoorwill, I'll join you in your lonely song
    
    You must feel like me, lonely whippoorwill
    Her memory is always in my mind
    And the trail she's on I just can't find
    I'll sing along with you until, lonely whippoorwill
    Until I leave her memory behind
    
    Lonely whippoorwill, if things were different
    You wouldn't have to sing your lonely song alone
    You and I are the same, who's to blame
    Lonely whippoorwill, I'll join you in your lonely song
