    Yesterday I Remembered You Again (Larry W Jones 05/09/2014) (song#6901)
    
    Yesterday I remembered you again
    I recalled all the love we had back then
    My oh my, my heartache was on the mend
    Yesterday I remembered you again
    
    Oh, I was a fool before yesterday
    I thought all of my fears had gone away
    I should have known that tears would soon begin
    Yesterday I remembered you again
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Oh, I was a fool before yesterday
    I thought all of my fears had gone away
    I should have known that tears would soon begin
    Yesterday I remembered you again
    
    My oh my, my heartache was on the mend
    Yesterday I remembered you again
    Yesterday I remembered you again
    
    From Now On Don't Count Me Gone (Larry W Jones 05/25/2014) (song#6902)
    
    My darlin', from now on don't count me gone
    I've come home dear, to walk the line for you
    I done you wrong just like in that old song
    But that old song you'll find has been reviewed
    
    Now, my dear, I beg to have your blessing
    I swear my love will remain ever strong
    And there won't be anymore transgressing
    My darlin', from now on don't count me gone
    
    (instrumental)
    
    That curtain of the past is fully drawn
    You know that I have loved you all along
    With heart open wide I'll stand at your side
    My darlin', from now on don't count me gone
    
    Now, my dear, I beg to have your blessing
    I swear my love will remain ever strong
    And there won't be anymore transgressing
    My darlin', from now on don't count me gone
    
    Oh darlin', from now on don't count me gone
    
    When The Red Robin Returns To Red River Valley (Larry W Jones 05/25/2014) (song #6903)
    
    When the red robin returns to Red River Valley
    Look down the trail and see me then returning to you
    Where the river bend turns in the Red River Valley
    We'll meet again at the gate of our ranch house for two
    
    Now, adios sweetheart, after one kiss for goodbye
    Remember my darling, true love doesn't grieve or sigh
    When the red robin returns to Red River Valley
    I will return when the big Texas moon is on high
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Now, adios sweetheart, after one kiss for goodbye
    Remember my darling, true love doesn't grieve or sigh
    When the red robin returns to Red River Valley
    I will return when the big Texas moon is on high
    
    When the red robin returns to Red River Valley
    I will return when the big Texas moon is on high
    
    Rodeo Gals (Larry W Jones 05/26/2014) (song#6904)
    
    In her long Ranch King trailer fast asleep
    A rodeo gal dreams of love and weeps
    Cowboys she met at the last rodeo
    Are on her mind but none of them will know
    
    Ridin' round the barrels keeps dreams alive
    The rodeo is her way to survive
    When arena floodlights are shining bright
    A rodeo gal will win big tonight
    
    Cowboys go to a big old rodeo
    To see rodeo gals put on a show
    Those girls love cowboys but it's just as true
    All rodeo gals love blue ribbons too
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Now, some give it up and go on back home
    After thinking that is where they belong
    But some love the rodeo through and through
    All rodeo gals love blue ribbons too
    
    Cowboys go to a big old rodeo
    To see rodeo gals put on a show
    Those girls love cowboys but it's just as true
    All rodeo gals love blue ribbons too
    
    Those girls love cowboys but it's just as true
    All rodeo gals love blue ribbons too
    
    Kin To The Wild Wild Wind (Larry W Jones 05/26/2014) (song#6905)
    
    A wind blows wild in the Spring time
    Yes, a wind blows wild in the sky
    And who knows where the wild wind blows
    Kin to the wild wild wind am I
    
    Wild is the wind that blows above
    Free is the wind not bound by love
    
    A wind blows wild in the summer
    Yes, a wind blows so quickly by
    And who knows where the wild wind blows
    Kin to the wild wild wind am I
    
    Wild is the wind that blows above
    Free is the wind not bound by love
    
    A wind blows wild in the Autumn
    Yes, a wind blows when snow flakes fly
    And who knows where the wild wind blows
    Kin to the wild wild wind am I
    
    Wild is the wind that blows above
    Free is the wind not bound by love
    
    A wind blows wild in the Winter
    Yes, a wind blows when time to die
    And who knows where the wild wind blows
    Kin to the wild wild wind am I
    
    Wild is the wind that blows above
    Free is the wind without a love
    
    Once Upon A Time Long Ago (Larry W Jones 05/26/2014) (song#6906)
    
    Once upon a time long ago
    I searched for my fortune and fame
    And I lived without love, I know
    But after awhile came the rain
    
    I wasn't prepared for weather
    That brought such tempest to my heart
    And I don't know as to whether
    I really lived while in the dark
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I've been told that a sliver line
    Is behind every cloud of gray
    I had looked but could never find
    Why true love never came my way
    
    So I'll just let gray clouds gather
    And cover the moon's golden glow
    It will be as love that withered
    Once upon a time long ago
    
    It will be as love that withered
    Once upon a time long ago
    
    It Wasn't Her Tradition (Larry W Jones 05/27/2014) (song#6907)
    
    I took my girl to a movie show and paid admission
    But she wouldn't kiss me, said it wasn't her tradition
    Some folks say just go ahead and don't ask for permission
    That ain't how she was bred and it wasn't her tradition
    
    Now, listen to the words I say if you have ambition
    To find out if your love life is like mine, in remission
    If she turns her head away, you'll then know your condition
    There ain't much more to say cause it wasn't her tradition
    
    (instrumental)
    
    If you can't see what's going on, go to an optician
    An eye exam will help you see there might be competition
    Some other bloke will be the joke for her ammunition 
    When his heart's broke he'll know love just wasn't her tradition
    
    I saw my girl the other day, she was in contrition
    There was no diamond wedding ring which raised my suspicion
    That she was paying now for all her works of sedition
    Love don't matter anyhow, it wasn't her tradition
    
    Yeah, she is paying now for all her works of sedition
    Love don't matter anyhow, it wasn't her tradition
    
    Just A Dance Step And A Teardrop Away (Larry W Jones 05/27/2014) (song#6908)
    
    Just a dance step and a teardrop away
    
    I saw you dance on the floor in the crowd
    The guy you danced with was looking so proud
    I heard you laugh at the words he would say
    Just a dance step and a teardrop away
    
    Just a dance step and a teardrop away
    Your glance at me I'll remember always
    It told me more than words could ever say
    Just a dance step and a teardrop away
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I know my poor heart tomorrow won't mend
    In sorrow we could never be just friends
    But I'll think of you every step each day
    Just a dance step and a teardrop away
    
    Just a dance step and a teardrop away
    Your glance at me I'll remember always
    It told me more than words could ever say
    Just a dance step and a teardrop away
    
    Your glance at me I'll remember always
    Just a dance step and a teardrop away
    
    Lost Dutchman Lost Sheep And Me (Larry W Jones 05/27/2014) (song#6909)
    
    Now, they say that every heart finds someone
    So why hasn't someone found me
    Yes, they say that every heart loves someone
    So why doesn't someone love me
    
    Now, if you wonder what the most lost thing can be
    It's the Lost Dutchman, the lost sheep and me
    They say that every lost love is carved on a tree
    So why doesn't someone carve one for me
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Now, if you wonder what the most lost thing can be
    It's the Lost Dutchman, the lost sheep and me
    They say that every lost love is carved on a tree
    So why doesn't someone carve one for me
    
    Now, if you wonder what the most lost thing can be
    It's the Lost Dutchman, the lost sheep and me
    It's the Lost Dutchman, the lost sheep and me
    
    Always The Best Man (Larry W Jones 05/30/2014) (song#6910)
    
    One by one old girlfriends are gettin' hitched
    One by one I feel like I'm gettin ditched
    When wedding bells sound, I've been found to cry
    And then another happy says goodbye
    
    Always the best man but never the groom
    I'm smiling outside while inside there's gloom
    A new invitation, same situation
    Always the best man but never the groom
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Oh, I could maybe marry her sister
    But so far I'm able to resist her
    Cause all my heart I gave to one only
    And a new start is not for the lonely
    
    Always the best man but never the groom
    I'm smiling outside while inside there's gloom
    A new invitation, same situation
    Always the best man but never the groom
    
    Prairie Flowers On My Grave (Larry W Jones 05/30/2014) (song#6911)
    
    I have ridden trails my lifetime
    I have ridden trails all my days
    Boys, when my last trail has ended
    Plant prairie flowers on my grave
    
    Prairie flowers, little bluestems
    Prairie flowers I won't condemn
    Come wild wind or rain in showers
    Plant prairie flowers on my grave
    
    Boys, don't bother with carnations
    Just leave them for the ladies fair
    Ride out across the wide prairie
    You'll find wild flowers blooming there
    
    Bluestem means you'll share my mem'ry
    Petunia stands for friendships sweet
    Aster says that you remembered
    Prairie flowers go at my feet 
    
    Prairie flowers, little bluestems
    Prairie flowers I won't condemn
    Come wild wind or rain in showers
    Plant prairie flowers on my grave
    
    Let meadowlarks sing their joyful
    Songs while the sunshine warms their day
    Boys, be always kind and loyal
    Prairie flowers for my bouquet
    
    Prairie flowers, little bluestems
    Prairie flowers I won't condemn
    Come wild wind or rain in showers
    Plant prairie flowers on my grave
    
    Tears Will Mingle With The Morning Rain (Larry W Jones 06/03/2014) (song#6912)
    
    Yesterday we walked hand in hand together
    When love was true and no foul weather came
    Now come clouds that say goodbye forever
    And tears will mingle with the morning rain
    
    Let me hold you close and kiss you one more time
    And feel my arms around you as before
    Just lay your head on my shoulder so sublime
    Before you leave and to return never more
    
    Yesterday we walked hand in hand together
    When love was true and no foul weather came
    Now come clouds that say goodbye forever
    And tears will mingle with the morning rain
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Flowers need sunshine and so does summer grain
    And so it goes for things all meant to be
    Now my tears will mingle with the morning rain
    As you depart and go away from me
    
    Yesterday we walked hand in hand together
    When love was true and no foul weather came
    Now come clouds that say goodbye forever
    And tears will mingle with the morning rain
    
    Now come clouds that say goodbye forever
    And tears will mingle with the morning rain
    
    Little Cowboy Pal (Larry W Jones 06/03/2014) (song#6913)
    
    Little cowboy pal (little cowboy pal)
    He's a precious little cowboy pal
    A miracle and life's never dull
    How we love our little cowboy pal
    
    He's growing fast like sunflowers do
    Sparkle in his eyes is like the dew
    He looks so small in the big corral
    He'll grow tall, our little cowboy pal
    
    Little cowboy pal (little cowboy pal)
    He's a precious little cowboy pal
    A miracle and life's never dull
    How we love our little cowboy pal
    
    (instrumental)
    
    You should see the locks upon his head
    When he talks I know just what he said
    And when I'm on the trail far from home
    I think of him and don't feel alone
    
    Little cowboy pal (little cowboy pal)
    He's a precious little cowboy pal
    A miracle and life's never dull
    How we love our little cowboy pal
    
    A miracle and life's never dull
    How we love our little cowboy pal
    
    My Heart Ain't One For You To Break (Larry W Jones 06/03/2014) (song#6914)
    
    My heart ain't one for you to break
    I still can smile for quite awhile
    No, I won't make that one mistake
    My heart ain't one for you to break
    
    Other hearts died, a shell inside
    Now they ain't what they used to be
    Your kind of love I just can't take
    My heart ain't one for you to break
    
    (instrumental)
    
    All I can say, for goodness sake
    For love worthwhile, I'll walk a mile
    But not for one that's just a fake
    My heart ain't one for you to break
    
    Other hearts died, a shell inside
    Now they ain't what they used to be
    Your kind of love I just can't take
    My heart ain't one for you to break
    
    Your kind of love I just can't take
    My heart ain't one for you to break
    
    I'm Likewise (Larry W Jones 06/08/2014) (song#6915)
    
    You called and said you're lonely, I'm likewise
    Tears you shed were for me only, no lies
    You said you can't hide behind some disguise
    Well, if your eyes haven't dried, I'm likewise
    
    You said this time you'll listen, I'm likewise
    And it's time to renew kissin', and sighs
    Well, I've been missin' sunny summer skies
    It's funny how I murmur, I'm likewise
    
    (instrumental)
    
    You're make believin' ain't workin', I'm likewise
    You've been grievin' is what your voice implies
    Well, I've been that way too, I'm feelin' blue
    I'm glad to hear you say you're that way too
    
    You've been thinkin' of weddin', I'm likewise
    I think that's where we're headin', I'll apprise
    Well, I have to admit it's no surprise
    There, you've said it, I love you, I'm likewise
    
    Low Lane Of Teardrops (Larry W Jones 06/09/2014) (song#6916)
    
    The low lane of teardrops has lead you astray
    You pulled out all the stops in being untrue
    But I loved you then as I still do today
    And I'll follow that lane to get back to you
    
    The low lane of teardrops is dreary I know
    Stripes on the edges are all painted dark blue
    But here without you dear, I'm feeling so low
    And I'll follow that lane to get back to you
    
    (instrumental)
    
    The low lane of teardrops is dreary I know
    Stripes on the edges are all painted dark blue
    But here without you dear, I'm feeling so low
    And I'll follow that lane to get back to you
    
    But here without you dear, I'm feeling so low
    And I'll follow that lane to get back to you
    The low lane of teardrops is where I will go
    
    Dog On A Leash (Larry W Jones 06/11/2014) (song#6917)
    
    I'm a dog on a leash, I'm blue tick blue
    I feel like I've been kicked and heeled by you
    I'm a dog on a leash, I'm all tied down
    I'm the dog you're walkin' all over town
    
    Now, such a doggone life I never knew
    Until you threw me a dog bone to chew
    Your love was never one to treat me right
    I'm a dog on a leash afraid to bite
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I ain't got no strength and I'm growing old
    Dear, all you want to do is point and scold
    You think all I want to do is go prowl
    I'm the dog you're walkin', afraid to growl
    
    Now, such a doggone life I never knew
    Until you threw me a dog bone to chew
    Your love was never one to treat me right
    I'm a dog on a leash afraid to bite
    
    Someplace Down In Texas (Larry W Jones 06/11/2014) (song#6918)
    
    That interstate drove my fate for ramblin'
    So I chased dreams here, there and everywhere
    But when I slept, mem'ries kept me scramblin'
    My state was where I didn't have a prayer
    
    Tonight someplace down in Texas
    They'll embrace a good Bob Wills tune
    And soon someplace down in Texas
    I'll be back home this coming June
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I rambled many miles on those highways
    Searching for a rainbow without an end
    I didn't see it was Texas byways
    That would lead me home like a long lost friend
    
    Tonight someplace down in Texas
    They'll embrace a good Bob Wills tune
    And soon someplace down in Texas
    I'll be back home this coming June
    
    And soon someplace down in Texas
    I'll be back home this coming June
    
    Apple Of My Eye (Larry W Jones 06/11/2014) (song#6919)
    
    Texas moon rising over prairie sky
    Lead me back to the apple of my eye
    I won't go drivin' cattle down the trail
    And no more will she wear a lonely veil
    
    At the chimney she lights a nightly fire
    In our cabin she lights my one desire
    Sometimes I wonder why it wasn't smart
    To ride this trail drive with a lonely heart
    
    (instrumental)
    
    At the chimney she lights a nightly fire
    In our cabin she lights my one desire
    Sometimes I wonder why it wasn't smart
    To ride this trail drive with a lonely heart
    
    Texas moon rising over prairie sky
    Lead me back to the apple of my eye
    
    Lead me back to the apple of my eye
    
    Our Wedding Melody (Larry W Jones 06/12/2014) (song#6920)
    
    Oh my darling, my only one you now will be
    All dressed in white, oh what a sight you are to see 
    My true love I promise for all eternity
    Let music begin for our wedding melody
    
    My love for you darling will grow as years go by
    Rejecting all others until my death is nigh
    
    My true love I promise for all eternity
    Let music begin for our wedding melody
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Oh my darling, my only one you now will be
    Here in my arms as in my heart eternally
    Never more to roam, home sweet home is destiny
    Let music begin for our wedding melody
    
    Never more to roam, home sweet home is destiny
    Let music begin for our wedding melody
    Let music begin for our wedding melody
    
    What Happened To The Jukebox (Larry W Jones 06/14/2014) (song#6921)
    
    One night I was feelin' blue and didn't know what to do
    So I jumped in my old pickup truck and flew out of town
    Down at the county line road I knew what good things there flowed
    Cause that small honky tonk used to be my old stompin' ground
    
    Well, I got there with time to spare but it wasn't the same
    I didn't hear no country music from the hall of fame
    The place looked kinda dead and the black-suited doorman said
    Sorry but you have to be a member in good acclaim
    
    So I said, what happened to the jukebox
    That used to stand in the corner
    And who replaced the double swingin' doors
    That let in all the old mourners
    
    And who put up all these incandescent lights
    Dim neon used to barely light the nights
    What you have done in here won't right the wrongs
    What happened to the jukebox country songs
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I looked across the room where the neon jukebox once boomed
    And there sat a six piece band looking so perfectly groomed
    I wasn't mistaken, my old stompin' ground was taken
    By an uptown crowd that meant my old honky tonk was doomed
    
    So I said, what happened to the jukebox
    That used to stand in the corner
    And who replaced the double swingin' doors
    That let in all the old mourners
    
    And who put up all these incandescent lights
    Dim neon used to barely light the nights
    What you have done in here won't right the wrongs
    What happened to the jukebox country songs
    
    Pages And Pages Ago (Larry W Jones 06/15/2014) (song#6922)
    
    Ages and ages ago, it was
    That our story of lost love began
    The first chapter doesn't give the cause
    That was pages and pages ago
    
    Somewhere in the middle it was read
    Don't recall how it came to be so
    I wish I could tear that page to shreds
    That was pages and pages ago
    
    Our book of love is finished and closed
    And no more will it blossom and grow
    I remember when it was composed
    That was pages and pages ago
    
    (instrumental)

    And no more will it blossom and grow

    Along The Old Pawnee Trail (Larry W Jones 06/16/.2014) (song#6923)
    
    Columbines color the way
    As sunshine warms up the day
    Along the old Pawnee Trail
    
    High above the timberline
    Alpine lakes glisten and shine
    Along the old Pawnee Trail
    
    I hear you as if near you
    Oh, may my song endear you
    Along the old Pawnee Trail
    
    (instrumental)
    
    High above the timberline
    Alpine lakes glisten and shine
    Along the old Pawnee Trail
    
    I hear you as if near you
    Oh, may my song endear you
    Along the old Pawnee Trail
    
    Along the old Pawnee Trail
    
    Am I Glad (Larry W Jones 06/16/2014) (song#6924)
    
    Am I glad, yes I'm glad
    This day's the best I've had
    Nobody has ever felt as good as this lad
    Am I glad, yes I'm glad
    
    This morning your phone call
    Made me dance in the hall
    You said that you'd come home
    No longer would you roam
    
    Am I glad, yes I'm glad
    So happy I might add
    This news is all so good and none of it is bad
    Am I glad, yes I'm glad
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I heard you say you're sorry
    Now darling don't you worry
    Dear, I'm so glad you had a change of heart and mind
    And I'm glad you're still mine
    
    Am I glad, yes I'm glad
    This day's the best I've had
    Nobody has ever felt as good as this lad
    Am I glad, yes I'm glad
    
    Watch That Train A-Rolling (Larry W Jones 06/24/2014) (song#6925)
    
    Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
    Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
    Well, my darlin's on it, my heart won't ever mend
    
    My darlin' left this mornin', said she'd taken enough
    My darlin' left this mornin', said she'd taken enough
    I said she'd be sorry, she didn't take my bluff
    
    Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
    Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
    Well, my darlin's on it, my heart won't ever mend
    
    Mister engineer, slow your locomotive down
    Mister engineer, slow your locomotive down
    If she keeps goin', this will be a lonesome town
    
    Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
    Watch that train a-rollin', a-rollin' round the bend
    Well, my darlin's on it, my heart won't ever mend
     
    Yeah, my darlin's on it, my heart won't ever mend
    
    Pine Tree Growing Tall (Larry W Jones 06/29/2014) (song#6926)
    
    There's a pine tree growing tall that in childhood I recall
    It grew straight and strong and I knew it wouldn't die or fall
    When hurricane winds blew, it just bent but stood there and grew
    And when the storm winds were through, it was still strong through and through
    
    Lord, let my faith grow as tall as that pine tree I recall
    Yes, and let it be as strong as a wall
    Help me live my life as a good man and without much strife
    Just give me enough strength that I don't fall
    
    (instrumental)
    
    There are some troubles in this world that makes a man's hair curl
    But I've got a friend who's worth more than fine diamonds or pearls
    And I vowed to follow his footsteps and answer his call
    That's why I remember in mind that pine tree growing tall
    
    Lord, let my faith grow as tall as that pine tree I recall
    Yes, and let it be as strong as a wall
    Help me live my life as a good man and without much strife
    Just give me enough strength that I don't fall
    
    Just give me enough strength that I don't fall
    
    Return My Heart (Larry W Jones 07/01/2014) (song#6927)
    
    Return my heart, our love is done
    I gave it you but not for fun
    Return my heart, then say goodbye
    Before the start of endless cries
    
    I'll still love you, that is certain
    But I see the final curtain
    There is no life when we're apart
    Let's end this strife, give back my heart
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Return my heart, our love is done
    I gave it you but not for fun
    Return my heart, then say goodbye
    Before the start of endless cries
    
    I'll still love you, that is certain
    But I see the final curtain
    There is no life when we're apart
    Let's end this strife, give back my heart
    
    Another Bridge That Just Won't Burn (Larry W Jones 07/11/2014) (song#6928)
    
    When you left I said goodbye to a love I'd lost
    I told myself that my poor heart could bear the cost
    But just to show how the world of long lost love turns
    Now I know you're another bridge that just won't burn
    
    I lit the fire and then decided to move on
    But my desire for our old love is much too strong
    When you left you built a bridge with no real concern
    But I know you're another bridge that just won't burn
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Nobody should love someone who made him so blue
    That's what I told myself while thinking it was true
    Oh, but I find myself hoping for your return 
    Now I know you're another bridge that just won't burn
     
    I lit the fire and then decided to move on
    But my desire for our old love is much too strong
    When you left you built a bridge with no real concern
    But I know you're another bridge that just won't burn
    
    All Of My Good Times (Larry W Jones 07/12/2014) (song#6929)
    
    All of my good times will soon be done
    All of the love I thought I had won
    All of my good times will soon be done
    Cause I'm no longer her number one
    
    I never pushed and I never shoved
    Nobody else ever placed above
    But now I mourn because I've been scorned
    Sometimes I wonder why I've been born
    
    All of my good times will soon be done
    All of the love I thought I had won
    All of my good times will soon be done
    Cause I'm no longer her number one
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Once raised on the poor side of the track
    I won a queen with a diamond Jack
    But I lost love's game and the whole deck
    Life ain't the same when it's all a wreck
    
    All of my good times will soon be done
    All of the love I thought I had won
    All of my good times will soon be done
    Cause I'm no longer her number one
    
    All of my good times will soon be done
    All of the love I thought I had won
    
    You Are My Starlight (Larry W Jones 07/12/2014) (song#6930)
    
    Deep in the night time, sweet wedding bells chime
    They sound so pretty when ringing gayly
    Vows are exchanged dear, as if you were near
    Please don't awaken me from dreams of cheer
    
    You are my starlight, my guiding starlight
    You are the moonbeams in my eyes
    Every night my dear, I hold you so near
    But only in my dreams until sunrise
    
    (instrumental)
    
    You said you'd love me, good or bad weather
    And dear, I told you I would do the same
    But then you told me you love another
    And he would be the one to change your name
    
    You are my starlight, my guiding starlight
    You are the moonbeams in my eyes
    Every night my dear, I hold you so near
    But only in my dreams until sunrise
    
    You are my starlight, my guiding starlight
    But only in my dreams until sunrise
    
    Texas Man (Larry W Jones 07/13/2014) (song#6931)
    
    Well, I'm ridin' down to the Red River
    And the great state of Texas I'll soon see
    Yeah, I'm ridin' down to the Red River
    A Texas town is waitin' there for me
    
    Well. I've spent my days as a lone rider
    In all of my ways a travelin' man
    I thought horizons had to be wider
    But I guess I just didn't understand
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Now, I ain't got no family
    Cause my Ma and Pa are long gone
    Died when I was in Laramie
    No brothers or sisters I've known
    
    I'm gonna hang up my spurs and saddle
    Then I'll settle down as best as I can
    Turn my horse to pasture with no bridle
    Spend the rest of life as a Texas man
    
    What Fort Worth Is Worth (Larry W Jones 07/14/2014) (song#6932)
    
    There's no place on earth like Fort Worth
    It's known in Texas as Cow Town
    Somebody asked what is it worth
    I told him it's where I bed down
    
    There's no place on earth like Fort Worth
    Longhorn cattle fill the stockyards
    And it is the town of my birth
    Fort Worth has my highest regards
    
    If you're lookin' for good cookin'
    Fort Worth has the best Texas beef
    And there they sing that Texas swing
    Bob Wills is still the swing band chief
    
    (instrumental)
    
    There's no place on earth like Fort Worth
    Longhorn cattle fill the stockyards
    And it is the town of my birth
    Fort Worth has my highest regards
    
    If you're daring, don"t be sparing
    What Fort Worth is worth is your all
    And you can bet you won't regret
    Cause in Fort Worth you'll have a ball
    
    There's no place on earth like Fort Worth
    Longhorn cattle fill the stockyards
    And it is the town of my birth
    Fort Worth has my highest regards
    
    I Love You So Much (Larry W Jones 07/15/2014) (song#6933)
    
    My love for you is for your understanding
    Of the little things that I forget to do
    And I love you dear for your not demanding
    More than I can give to make your dreams come true
    
    Oh, I know the world doesn't care about me
    But dear, I can bare it all because of you
    My love for you is such to never doubt me
    I love you so much because you love me too
    
    (instrumental)
    
    My love for you makes my world ever brighter
    And I never question words that you confide
    The daily load I carry, you make lighter
    No wonder my heart for you is open wide
    
    Oh, I know the world doesn't care about me
    But dear, I can bare it all because of you
    My love for you is such to never doubt me
    I love you so much because you love me too
    
    I'll Forgive You When I Learn To Forget (Larry W Jones 07/15/2014) (song#6934)
    
    One fine day I'll forgive you my darling
    But that fine day has not arrived just yet
    Time passes by so slow but this I know
    I'll forgive you when I learn to forget
    
    Where ever you are I hope you do well
    As for me, I try not to cry and fret
    I don't know when but I can surely tell
    I'll forgive you when I learn to forget
    
    (instrumental)
    
    It made me so sad to see our parting
    But I'm so glad about the day we met
     But darling, if I can beg your pardon
    I'll forgive you when I learn to forget
    
    My dear, you have gone and found another
    That was the day when my sun fully set
    I remember when true love was smothered
    I'll forgive you when I learn to forget
    
    I Never Change When Seasons Do (Larry W Jones 07/15/2014) (song#6935)
    
    In springtime you found me 'mong the flowers
    My love for you was warm as summer sun
    And by Autumn, as the leaves were changing
    My love for you was as if just begun
    
    Unlike weather, I'm the same each season
    Spring, Summer and in cold of Winter too
    And your love for me is the best reason
    Just why I never change when seasons do
    
    (instrumental)
    
    When new Spring arrives I'm never sorry
    Each Summer brings me golden memories
    And when Autumn comes I never worry
    Deep in Winter it's your sweet love I see
    
    Unlike weather, I'm the same each season
    Spring, Summer and in cold of Winter too
    And your love for me is the best reason
    Just why I never change when seasons do
    
    Only An Amigo (Larry W Jones 07/18/2014) (song#6936)
    
    The postman left some letters then walked on by
    One postmarked from Arizona caught my eye
    It was from my friend, I opened it real slow
    The first words were penned, only an amigo
    
    Only an amigo, Jose was his name
    Only an amigo, today I'm in pain
    He was my true friend, that I want you to know
    Right up until the end, Jose Perigo
    
    (instrumental)
    
    The postmark was Nogales, near Santa Cruz
    It was his last letter, for he'd paid life's dues
    Only an amigo, a true friend to me
    Jose Perigo, no more my friend I'll see
     
    Only an amigo, Jose was his name
    Only an amigo, today I'm in pain
    He was my true friend, that I want you to know
    Right up until the end, Jose Perigo
    
    Only an amigo, Jose was his name
    
    Where Worried Minds Aren't Known (Larry W Jones 07/18/2014) (song#6937)
    
    Now, hear that whistle moan and hear those big wheels groan
    Gonna board her and go where worried minds aren't known
    
    I've traveled round this country, North, South, Tennessee
    Somewhere down in Dixie, cotton fields callin' me
    
    I've been to New York City and old Mexico
    But folks down in Dixie are only friends I know
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Now, hear that whistle moan and hear those big wheels groan
    Gonna board her and go where worried minds aren't known
    
    Listen to my story and you'll know where I'm bound
    Look way down in Dixieland and there I'll be found
    
    Now, hear that whistle moan and hear those big wheels groan
    Gonna board her and go where worried minds aren't known
    
    Your Acting High And mighty Makes Me Low And Blue (Larry W Jones 07/18/2014) (song#6938)
    
    Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue
    Oh, I know you must be thinking only of you
    Dear, I've been trying to keep myself from crying
    Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue
    
    You don't even miss me, no I don't think you do
    You dismiss every loving thing I do for you
    You said that you'd return but this one thing is true
    Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Dear, I'm feeling weary and somewhat low and blue
    At one time I was cheery when true love I knew
    Now, please don't get me wrong for this is just a song
    Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue
    
    You don't even miss me, no I don't think you do
    You dismiss every loving thing I do for you
    You said that you'd return but this one thing is true
    Your acting high and mighty makes me low and blue
    
    No One Can Ever Tell (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6939)
    
    No one can ever tell that I feel lonely
    Though it's only been ten years not doing well
    I cry at night but morning light try laughing
    I miss you still but no one can ever tell
    
    I tell them all we didn't leave each other
    We just were not under true love's binding spell
    I make believe there never came bad weather
    And yes, I'm sure that no one can ever tell
    
    (instrumental)
    
    No one can ever tell how much I miss you
    Each time that old mem'ry rings just like a bell
    No one can ever tell how oft I kiss you
    In my dreams while in my arms where you still dwell
    
    I tell them all we didn't leave each other
    We just were not under true love's binding spell
    I make believe there never came bad weather
    And yes, I'm sure that no one can ever tell
    
    No Letter From Home (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6940)
    
    No letter from home, no letter from home
    No letter from back home came today
    
    If I could read just one simple line
    From mother's hand I would feel so fine
    Or something my daddy had to say
    No letter from back home came today
    
    (instrumental)
    
    No letter from home, no letter from home
    No letter from back home came today
    
    If only I knew the latest news
    It might rid me of these lonesome blues
    There's been no cheer for many a year
    No letter from ones I hold so dear
    
    (instrumental)
    
    No letter from home, no letter from home
    No letter from back home came today
    
    The last I heard, they were doing well
    But with no word, who can really tell
    I'm leaving soon, I'll be on my way
    This grieving has my hair turning grey
    
    No letter from home, no letter from home
    No letter from back home came today
    
    When Our Senior Moment Comes Around (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6941)
    
    When our senior moment comes around
    We will wonder what just came unwound
    We won't have much to say anyway
    When our senior moment comes around
    
    When her senior moment comes around
    Grandma will act like a sniffing hound
    Her teeth she won't find but she won't mind
    When her senior moment comes around
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Grandpa will complain, can't find his cane
    He won't know it's outside in the rain
    He'll be past sixty down in Dixie 
    When his senior moment comes around
    
    Wheelchairs will be the rage on that day
    Folks will all show their age, as they say
    Hair grown from their ears won't bring much cheer
    When their senior moment comes around
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Cosmetic stores will all close their doors
    And medics will come by threes and fours
    They'll ask how we are, then au revoir
    When our senior moment comes around
     
    Time will turn our good world upside down
    We will seldom smile and always frown
    It's regretful, we'll be forgetful
    When our senior moment comes around
    
    Old Timey Sunshiny Melody (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6942)
    
    I wanna play it once more just like I did before
    When that old Victrola sounded out in harmony
    With an old timey sunshiny melody
    
    With the falling years I recall falling on my ears
    Those happy times, big and small, that I can only see
    With an old timey sunshiny melody
    
    I wanna play it once more just like I did before
    When that old Victrola sounded out in harmony
    With an old timey sunshiny melody
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I've got to get back to that little piney woods shack
    Where my mind and my heart won't be bothered but feel free
    With an old timey sunshiny melody
    
    I wanna play it once more just like I did before
    When that old Victrola sounded out in harmony
    With an old timey sunshiny melody
    
    Jole Blon (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6943)
    
    Jole Blon, bayou garland
    Darling flow'r of Louisan
    I adore you and I emplore you
    Let me be your Louisiana man
    
    In the twilight's dim shadows
    I wait for my only one
    I miss you but then I will kiss you
    When you come to my arms, Jole Blon
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Jole Blon, bayou sweetheart
    Pretty blonde, my heart you've won
    I'm waiting, don't be hesitating
    Your rating's number one, Jole Blon
    
    While the moon shines in glory
    Let's stay awhile, please don't run
    In Louisan they'll tell the story
    Of delta bayou love, Jole Blon
    
    Santa Fe Super Chief anta Fe Super Chief (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6944)
    
    Let me tell the tale of one famous train
    Her legend is almost beyond belief
    She rolled out from Chicago, shine or rain
    Blazing rails, the Santa Fe Super Chief
    
    From Chicago to California sun
    The Santa Fe Super Chief was on time
    Hollywood celebrities rode for fun
    With caviar and drinking finest wine
    
    (instrumental)
    
    When you rode her, you'd hear that diesel whine
    A hundred miles an hour made the trip brief
    Sleeping in the pullman, rocking divine
    Sweet time on the Santa Fe Super Chief
    
    Now I've told the tale of one famous train
    Her legend is almost beyond belief
    She rolled out from Chicago, shine or rain
    Blazing rails, the Santa Fe Super Chief
    
    Tavern Of The Setting Sun (Larry W Jones 07/19/2014) (song#6945)
    
    There's a bar in Dallas named Tavern of the Setting Sun
    Known as a cavern for lost men and oh, I know I'm one
    Don't tell my relations of the ruin that whiskey has done
    It's the foundations of the Tavern of the Setting Sun
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Play the old jukebox and watch the records go round and round
    Dring til clocks on the walls say it's alright to feel low down
    The Tavern of the Setting Sun is way outside of town
    It's a place of fame and it's name is one of some reknown
    
    (instrumental)

    Wabash Cannonball (Larry W Jones 07/20/2014) (song#6946)
    
    She rolls as fast as a cannonball
    On rails of steel she's a pretty sight
    Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
    As she rolls on through a summer night
    
    Two long steel rails and a million crossties hear her mighty call
    Gents, ladies and express mail flies on the Wabash Cannonball
    
    (instrumental)
    
    She rolls as fast as a cannonball
    On rails of steel she's a pretty sight
    Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
    As she rolls on through a summer night
    
    The hand of the engineer has the throttle full to the wall
    There's no fear as he rounds the curve on the Wabash Cannonball
    
    Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
    Coming from the Wabash Cannonball
    
    Tennessee Lane (Larry W Jones 07/20/2014) (song#6947)
    
    Just like Shangri-la, Tennessee
    Appalachia, Smoky Mountains
    Living is peaceful, valleys so serene
    Cool rivers flow through places seldom seen
    
    Tennessee Lane, my thoughts remain
    All along your winding roadways
    Tennessee Lane, I'll walk again
    When I return to you one day
    
    (instrumental)
    
    My thoughts return to remind me
    How far away from home I've roamed
    Now I'll put some miles behind me
    Til Tennessee once more is home
    
    Tennessee Lane, my thoughts remain
    All along your winding roadways
    Tennessee Lane, I'll walk again
    When I return to you one day
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I recall my times of childhood
    Before I left and ran away
    I would bring them back if I could
    All those good times of yesterday
    
    Tennessee Lane, my thoughts remain
    All along your winding roadways
    Tennessee Lane, I'll walk again
    When I return to you one day
    
    Honky Tonk Swing (Larry W Jones 07/20/2014) (song#6948)
    
    I was stepping with my sweetheart to the honky tonk swing
    When an old pard swung by and said howdy
    I let him cut in and I saw them laughing while dancing
    My old pard swung my girl's heart far from me
    
    I recall the scene and the honky tonk swing
    It beat everything that I had ever seen
    I let him cut in and I saw them laughing while dancing
    My old pard swung my girl's heart far from me
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I was stepping with my sweetheart to the honky tonk swing

    My old pard swung my girl's heart far from me
    
    I let him cut in and I saw them laughing while dancing
    My old pard swung my girl's heart far from me
    While they were stepping to the honky tonk swing
    
    Remove These Shackles (Larry W Jones 07/21/2014) (song#6949)
    
    Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live
    The way it was when words were kind and love was key
    I've lost confidence in you and I feel so blue
    Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live
    
    Remove these sharp pains from my heart so I can feel
    All that remains of love that once was truly mine
    I gave you my time but you had no love to give
    Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Just give my mind a little time for ease
    Dear, please don't bind my thoughts eternally
    When you're no longer here, this pain will disappear 
    Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live
    
    Remove these sharp pains from my heart so I can feel
    All that remains of love that once was truly mine
    I gave you my time but you had no love to give
    Remove these shackles from my mind so I can live
    
    Bonus Day Tomorrow (Larry W Jones 07/21/2014) (song#6950)
    
    Gonna buy a new western suit, shine my cowboy boots
    Gonna go down to the station, hear that train horn hoot
    Nobody's gonna stop me and right on time I'll be
    Bonus day tomorrow, my darlin' I'm gonna see
    
    She wrote in her letter that she'll soon be on her way
    Well doggone, she better or her mail I'll throw away
    Gonna practice on my grin for when her train rolls in
    Bonus day tomorrow, can't wait for it to begin

    Today Is The Yesterday Of Tomorrow (Larry W Jones 07/21/2014) (song#6951)
    
    Today is the yesterday of tomorrow
    Tomorrow never comes and yesterday is gone
    You promised me that you'd be mine tomorrow
    Today's the same as yesterday when love's withdrawn
    
    Today is the yesterday of tomorrow
    And yesterday's sorrow was all my future saw
    You said our future would be bright tomorrow
    Today I recall yesterday was full of flaws
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Years past yesterday my eyes were full of tears
    I hoped that tomorrow would bring love to my side
    But today I know tomorrow won't bring cheer
    Just like yesterday when you said you'd be my bride
    
    Today is the yesterday of tomorrow
    Tomorrow never comes and yesterday is gone
    You promised me that you'd be mine tomorrow
    Today's the same as yesterday when love's withdrawn
    
    Cowboy Bob (Larry W Jones 07/21/2014) (song#6952)
    
    Cowboy Bob was a wrangler at a ranch in old Cheyenne
    Said he'd never marry, he liked being a single man
    Then one day he swung the doors of the  Bad Outlaw Saloon
    He hit the floor when a painted lady there made him swoon
    
    He said, pour me a side of jerky and slice of rye straight
    You're the prettiest Can-Can girl that I can surely rate
    Fry huevos rancheros rare, over easy on my steak
    Gonna spend my pay on you, every dollar that I make
    
    (instrumental)
    
    The Can-Can lady looked at Bob and she forgot a lot
    She said, I'll bring cool sasparilla, hope you like it hot
    I'll pour you a side of jerky, slice your rye whiskey straight
    Huevos rancheros I'll serve rare along with easy steak
    
    Well, the story must be told, Cowboy Bob done broke his mold
    He took that lady by the arm and out the door they strolled
    They climbed up on Bob's old buckboard and headed out of town
    Somebody said that Cowboy Bob's will had just broken down
    
    He said, pour me a side of jerky and slice of rye straight
    You're the prettiest Can-Can girl that I can surely rate
    Cowboy Bob was a wrangler at a ranch in old Cheyenne
    Said he'd never marry, he liked being a single man
    
    Before The Day I Found You (Larry W Jones 07/22/201450 (song#6953)
    
    Written on pages of the ages this day will be viewed
    As the day I found you, as the day I found you, yes you
    But my heart will testify that you have been in my eye
    Cause I've waited for this day before the day I found you
    
    Before the day I found you, I knew, oh, how well I knew
    You would be my dream come true before the day I found you
    Before you walked in my life, before you became my wife
    Dear, I've waited for this day before the day I found you
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Before the day I found you, I knew, oh, how well I knew
    You would be my dream come true before the day I found you
    Before you walked in my life, before you became my wife

    But my heart will testify that you have been in my eye
    Cause I've waited for this day before the day I found you
    Dear, I've waited for this day before the day I found you
    Before the day I found you
    
    New Fool Like An Old Fool (Larry W Jones 07/22/2014) (song#6954)
    
    The first time you left me I nearly cried
    The second time was when I nearly died
    A man in love can stand some grief and pain
    New fools and old fools are all just the same
    
    There's a new fool like an old fool
    I've told myself a hundred times
    There's a new fool like an old fool
    The diff'rence is only nickles and dimes
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Darling, you called and said you were sorry
    And that I shouldn't worry any more
    I fall for that same old line every time
    Old fools and new fools open up the door
    
    There's a new fool like an old fool
    I've told myself a hundred times
    There's a new fool like an old fool
    The diff'rence is only nickles and dimes
    
    Cowboy Coloring Book (Larry W Jones 07/23/2014) (song#6955)
    
    My little buckaroo is my pardner through and through
    So I bought him a cowboy coloring book one day
    He spends lots of time trying to stay within the lines
    His favorite color is blue since she died that day
    
    I smiled when I first looked at his new coloring book
    At first the colors seemed to be all mixed up and wrong 
    Then I realized as tears were falling from my eyes
    My little buckaroo had colored his Mommy gone
    
    (instrumental)
    
    He colored the cowboy blue with saddened, tear-filled eyes
    He shaded the big old barn with black lines he had drawn
    And he colored the moon in a shade of darkest gloom
    My little buckaroo had colored his Mommy gone
    
    I smiled when I first looked at his new coloring book
    At first the colors seemed to be all mixed up and wrong 
    Then I realized as tears were falling from my eyes
    My little buckaroo had colored his Mommy gone
    
    Best Is Yet To Come (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6956)
    
    It's such a short time since you came my way
    I know where this much joy is coming from
    I shout Oh Boy at the start of each day
    And dear, I know the best is yet to come
    
    There's nothing so fine that I've ever seen
    Than someone I now call my number one
    The way your eyes shine when looking at me
    Says dear, I know the best is yet to come
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Here comes endless days of love and gladness
    My fav'rite pie is made of sugar plumb
    Until I die there will be no sadness
    Cause dear, I know the best is yet to come
    
    There's nothing so fine that I've ever seen
    Than someone I now call my number one
    The way your eyes shine when looking at me
    Says dear, I know the best is yet to come
    
    Yes dear, I know the best is yet to come
    The best is yet to come
    
    All Bull No Matador (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6957)
    
    Lookit that greenhorn out on the dance floor
    Got a stetson on, I ain't sure what for
    Talkin' Tex but it sounds more like senor
    Well pardner, he's all bull, no matador
    
    He needs to pack up and go
    He's a cowboy made for show
    New boots, hat, and nothing more
    He's all bull, no matador
    
    (instrumental)
     
    Now, lookit him smooth-talkin' to 'em all
    Worst of all is his awful Texas drawl
    If Y'all don't mind, I'll just tell him 'fore long
    Take your blood red cape and head on for home
    
    He needs to pack up and go
    He's a cowboy made for show
    New boots, hat, and nothing more
    He's all bull, no matador
    
    Good Way Of Saying Hello (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6958)
    
    Hello, I think I love you M'am
    This cowboy just wants you to know
    Life would be kind if you were mine
    It's a good way of saying hello
    
    There's no better way that I've heard
    To get on with a cowboy show
    Than to say it's you I've preferred
    It's a good way of saying hello
     
    (instrumental)
    
    I took to you and don't regret
    Saying that my true love will grow
    This is a good day, now we've met
    It's a good way of saying hello
    
    There's no better way that I've heard
    To get on with a cowboy show
    Than to say it's you I've preferred
    It's a good way of saying hello
    
    There's no better way that I've heard
    It's a good way of saying hello
    
    Is It Right To Test Your Love (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6959)
    
    Is it right to say how I feel
    That no other is up above
    I'll head west if the feel ain't real
    Now, is it right to test your love
    
    Is it OK, the words I say
    It's honey your lips are made of
    I rest my case right here today
    Now, is it right to test your love
    
    (instrumental)
     
    Will it cause a skip of your heart
    If I said you're my lovey dove
    Will soft moonlight make our love start
    Dear, is it right to test your love
    
    Is it OK, the words I say
    It's honey your lips are made of
    I rest my case right here today
    Now, is it right to test your love
    
    Oh, is it right to test your love
    
    Speaking My Mind (Larry W Jones 07/24/2014) (song#6960)
    
    Excuse me sir, I didn't mean
    To speak those words not well designed
    I was talking to someone unseen
    While I was just speaking my mind
    
    Now, in my mind I did no wrong
    At least nothing that I can find
    I said come back where you belong
    While I was just speaking my mind
    
    (instrumental)
    
    In my mind I whisper her name
    And every time it sounds so fine
    I told myself that I'm not to blame
    While I was just speaking my mind
    
    Well sir, guess I'll be on my way
    I guess I must have been stone blind
    There's nothing aloud I have to say
    I'm in a cloud speaking my mind
    
    Rustic Side Of Country (Larry W Jones 07/29/2014) (song#6961)
    
    Keep your high rises and shopping centers
    I don't need signs that say do not enter
    Now, I don't mean to say something drastic
    Just give me some place that's kinda rustic
    
    Oh, give me the rustic side of country
    Rustic side of country, rustic country
    Nothing plastic, a life that's realistic
    Just give me the rustic side of country
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I'm quite fond of a catfish fishing pond
    Where I'll wet a hook and sing Jole Blon
    I'll catch a fish with my hook and sinker
    And no ticket for my inop blinker
    
    I was born in the Texas piney woods
    Learned how to live rustic and it was good
    Not much money, I learned to live humbly
    Oh, give me the rustic side of country
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Oh, give me the rustic side of country
    Rustic side of country, rustic country
    Nothing plastic, a life that's realistic
    Just give me the rustic side of country
    
    Boots On Our Feet (Larry W Jones 07/30/2014) (song#6962)
    
    Pa was a cowboy whose face was leathered
    Did his best with grace in any weather
    His ranch made a living in cold or heat
    Kept bread on the table, boots on our feet
    
    We sat for a meal and gave thanks to God
    For veal we ate and for the horses shod
    Levis had patches on the knees and seat
    Ma sewed patches, Pa put boots on our feet
    
    (instrumental)
    
    We rounded up cattle and cleaned the barn
    Ranch work was hard from the day we were born
    After work was done, Pa's fiddle was sweet
    With cakes on the griddle, boots on our feet
    
    We sat for a meal and gave thanks to God
    For veal we ate and for the horses shod
    Levis had patches on the knees and seat
    Ma sewed patches, Pa put boots on our feet
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Now I own the ranch and run it the same
    Cause I'm a branch cut from my Daddy's name
    My fam'ly of cowboys is now complete
    There's bread on the table, boots on our feet
    
    When you sit for a meal, give thanks to God
    For veal you eat and for your horses shod
    If Levis have patches on knees and seat
    Thank Ma for patches, Pa for boots on your feet
    
    Everlasting Is The Last Time (Larry W Jones 08/01/2014) (song #6963)
    
    My darling, I knew from the moment when we met and touched
    There would be no postponement to say I love you so much
    But dear, I'm not one whose heart can be so easily won
    So I'll tell you how it happened and let you be the judge
    
    I give you my word, everything is true that you have heard
    And when you look in my eyes you will find no disguise 
    I've loved you a long time but a long time just will not do
    Everlasting is the last time I'll be in love with you
    
    (instrumental)
    
    My darling, when there's wrinkles on my face and gone is grace
    And with only a smile, remember the times we've embraced
    I will then recall that day when I promised you my all
    And when the day is through I will whisper these words to you
    
    I give you my word, everything is true that you have heard
    And when you look in my eyes you will find no disguise 
    I've loved you a long time but a long time just will not do
    Everlasting is the last time I'll be in love with you
    
    I've loved you a long time but a long time just will not do
    Everlasting is the last time I'll be in love with you
    
    Rotten Cotton (Larry W Jones 08/05/2014) (song#6964)
    
    In Louisian around New Orleans we ran a farm when times were lean
    When hurricanes blew it could get real bad
    With calloused hands from cotton hoes we tilled the hot sand in long straight rows
    I recall the pain when I was a lad
    
    The years went by and later on I learned to save at the local pawn
    A dirt poor man learns how to make ends meet
    Our house wasn't more than a shack on the wrong side of the railroad track
    Windows were kept open beacuse of heat
    
    (instrumental)  
    
    We made our living with rotten cotton, boll weevils aren't forgotten
    In those sand hills of Cajun Louisian
    We made our living with rotten cotton, boll weevils aren't forgotten
    Cajun people try as best as they can
    
    Every weekday morning at roll call we rolled out and put on overalls
    Just before the hot sun began to rise
    Hurricanes came with little warning and they brought a lot of mourning
    I recall tears falling from Mama's eyes
    
    We made our living with rotten cotton
    We made our living with rotten cotton
    We made our living with rotten cotton in Louisian
    
    There Was A Time (Larry W Jones 08/05/2014) (song#6965)
    
    There was a time when every cowboy born
    Lived in a ranch house and not in a barn
    There was a time when each rancher around
    Helped their poor neighbor get up off the ground
    There was a time
    
    When a cowboy was just too old to ride
    But all the young un's looked at him with pride
    There was a time
    When the branding came in the early Spring
    And it was outstanding what hands would bring
    There was a time
    
    (instrumental)
    
    There was a time when grandma and grandpa
    Knew all their grandkids would obey the law
    There was a time
    When the biggest thing was the big barn dance
    And good western swing led to sweet romance
    There was a time
    
    When longhorns drank deep from a flowing stream
    And we thanked God for knowing how to dream
    There was a time
    When our future was looking bright ahead
    And at night there was nothing there to dread
    There was a time, there was a time
    Bring back that time, oh, bring back that time
    
    
    
    
    Walk On By (Larry W Jones 08/06/2014) (song#6966)
    
    I saw you this morning on Main St uptown
    It's been a long while since I saw you last time
    But then I remembered how you put me down
    Walk on by unless you mean to walk the line
    
    You sure looked like you were in a big hurry
    You didn't stop by to read the big sale sign
    I wanted to say Hi but I still worry
    Walk on by unless you mean to walk the line
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Yesterday I was only your stepping stone
    Now you have the finest clothes and choicest wine
    If love's door has fully closed, I'll walk alone
    Walk on by unless you mean to walk the line
    
    If I see you walking uptown tomorrow
    I might ask you once again if you'll be mine
    If your answer is one to bring more sorrow
    Walk on by unless you mean to walk the line
    
    Down On Galveston Isle (Larry W Jones 08/06/2014) (song#6967)
    
    She watches out her window for the surf to break
    Each morning when the sun begins to shine
    And she remembers happy times at the clam bakes
    Then pours herself a glass of morning wine
    
    Folks say she mourns for a past due salty sailor
    Who said he would return and make her smile
    But he then disappeared like an ancient whaler
    And never returned to Galveston Isle
    
    Down on Galveston Isle
    The current flows toward Mexico
    Down on Galveston Isle
    Nobody knows where she will go
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Every day when shrimp boats arrive in Galveston
    She looks for her lost sailor at the docks
    She knows that he would always be the best dressed one
    From his sailor hat right down to his socks
    
    Folks say she mourns for a past due salty sailor
    Who said he would return and make her smile
    But he then disappeared like an ancient whaler
    And never returned to Galveston Isle
    
    Down on Galveston Isle
    The current flows toward Mexico
    Down on Galveston Isle
    Nobody knows where she will go
    
    Borderline Bourbon Time (Larry W Jones 08/10/2014) (song#6968)
    
    I wake up south of the border in Mexico
    And I recall what I tell myself every time
    There's no order or reason why you had to go
    My sweet dreams all fall at borderline bourbon time
    
    When I pass by a phone I want to call you so
    Pesos in Mexico aren't worth a silver dime
    I know it isn't good to drink this strong Old Crow
    Margaritas go with borderline bourbon time
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Memories cross the border of old Mexico
    And I recall them all with tequila and lime
    Sometimes I ponder them over some cheap bordeaux
    And then think of you at borderline bourbon time
    
    Down here on the borderline of old Mexico
    When clouds appear there is no happy silver line
    Just a feeling that I'm here for more tears and woe
    I'll try to forget at borderline bourbon time
    
    Jingle In My Jeans (Larry W Jones 08/11/2014) (song#6969)
    
    There's a jingle in my jeans and I know what that means
    I've got a decision to make
    I can mingle with the crowd and play the jukebox loud
    With a song about big heartbreak
    
    Or I can call her on the phone and beg to come home
    Though I don't know what she might say
    Either come on home or stay out where you are and roam
    I'll know more at the light of day
    
    (instrumental)
     
    I'll flip a coin with my thumb and hope the deal is done
    The gingle in my jeans will say
    Tails will mean more travail and heads will be a home run
    I'll know more at the light of day
    
    There's a jingle in my jeans and I know what that means
    I've got a decision to make
    I can mingle with the crowd and play the jukebox loud
    With a song about big heartbreak
    
    Or I can call her on the phone and beg to come home
    The gingle in my jeans will say
    
    Like A Troubadour To A Meadowlark (Larry W Jones 08/13/2014) (song#6970)
    
    There's something I really want to tell you
    And I sure hope that you will understand
    You're the kind of woman I'd love to woo
    But for daring words I'm a bashful man
    
    Now, when it comes to crooning a love song
    I can write it in rhyme to start a spark
    Then sing it in a way that can't go wrong 
    Like a troubadour to a meadow lark
    
    (instrumental)
    
    You're the meadowlark cause I've heard you sing
    But when it comes to words I'm in the dark
    Unless I write them in a song of Spring
    And sing them softly to a meadowlark
    
    Now, when it comes to crooning a love song
    I can write it in rhyme to start a spark
    Then sing it in a way that can't go wrong 
    Like a troubadour to a meadow lark
    
    I'll sing it in a way that can't go wrong 
    Like a troubadour to a meadow lark
    
    Lone Prairie (Larry W Jones 08/13/2014) (song#6971)
    
    Lone prairie, lonely are the hills
    Lone is the breeze even when still
    Lone prarie, nightly bringing chill
    Lone is the lowly whippoorwill
    
    Every cowboy's heart beats a lonely rhythm too
    When the golden moon repeats its monthly debut
    Out on the lone prairie where no town is in view
    This cowboy is blue because I'm not holding you
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Lone prairie, only you can know
    Lone is the reason for my woe
    Lone prairie, it's to you I owe
    Lone is the trail where I ride slow
    
    Every cowboy's heart beats a lonely rhythm too
    When the golden moon repeats its monthly debut
    Out on the lone prairie where no town is in view
    This cowboy is blue because I'm not holding you
    
    Three Pals Have I (Larry W Jones 08/13/2014) (song#6972)
    
    Three pals have I and I know them well
    So, of them now, to you I will tell
    They reside in the East and the West
    Let's ride to see and you be my guest
    
    I have a pal known as the cool breeze
    Low is his sound and it's sure to please
    Across prairies wide he blows so free
    I feel my pal and he's one of three
    
    I have a pal who's the closest star
    He's called the sun and he's not too far
    He warms up my shoulders so gently
    I feel the sun shining down on me
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I have a pal known as evening tide
    He ebbs and flows on the oceans wide
    I love to hear him as pounding surf
    When I'm standing near on solid turf
    
    The Creator made breeze, stars and tide
    My heart has opened to blessings wide
    Fore I was born they were there to see
    I know them all and they all know me
    
    Three pals have I and I know them well
    So, of them now, to you I will tell
    They reside in the East and the West
    Let's ride to see and you be my guest
     
    Three pals have I and I know them well
    
    Let's Band Together (For Her Love) (Larry W Jones 08/14/2014) (song#6973)
    
    The band is tuning up for the dance
    And things are looking up for romance
    I've got lips and hands, arms and a heart
    And must get them each to do their part
    
    The band is playing their first love song
    Now, lips don't you say anything wrong
    And heart don't quiver or miss a beat
    Just give her warm feelings when we meet
    
    Now, lips get ready to speak up bold
    Arms, you both warm up to curl and hold
    That girl's the one we've been dreaming of
    Let's band together now for her love
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Now, nerves don't get yourself all high strung
    And eyes, keep your focus on just one
    Hands, hold her as closely as a glove
    Let's band together now for her love
    
    Now she's walking across the dance floor
    And it looks like she's coming our way
    All you parts together, do your chores
    Let's band together now for her love
    
    Across The Twilight (Larry W Jones 08/15/2014) (song#6974)
    
    If I pass first and you live across my twilight
    Plant an oak tree where the sun will shine always bright
    As the tree grows tall and the branches fill with leaves
    Remember me as the one who in love believes
    
    If I pass first and you live past my Master's call
    Plant an aster whose petals will be growing tall
    As the petals bloom leave room in your memory
    Remember me as I pass to eternity
    
    (instrumental)
    
    If I pass first and you live as the living do
    Plant a garden rose for those passing by to view
    As the flower grows each blossom will call your name
    Remember me for one day dear I'll call the same
    
    Across the twilight, blessed gathering
    The earth will be a paradise
    There life's bright highlight will be unending
    Across the twilight, life's reprise
    
    Neon Lights And Texas Music (Larry W Jones 08/15/2014) (song#6975)
    
    Staying home alone is not for me anymore
    I'm not gonna be the same ol me as before
    Billy Bob's Texas is a place that does the trick
    It has those bright neon lights and Texas music
    
    Neon lights and Texas music
    My past was dim but now it's bright
    Neon lights and Texas music
    I'll be at Billy Bob's tonight
    
    (instrumental)
    
    On a stool at the bar I'll fill a glass of beer
    There'll be fools just like me searching for some cheer
    Yeah, they're just like me, a country hillbilly hick
    Looking for bright neon lights and Texas music
    
    Neon lights and Texas music
    My past was dim but now it's bright
    Neon lights and Texas music
    I'll be at Billy Bob's tonight
    
    Panhandle Lights (Larry W Jones 08/20/2014) (song#6976)
    
    Panhandle lights of Amarillo I can see
    Like a moth to a candle for cowboys like me
    The rodeo is where I'll be tomorrow night
    Another show under Texas panhandle lights
    
    Panhandle lights are bright and pretty in night time
    But they have no pity on a poor cowboy's dime
    The rodeo committee will think all is right
    When I sign in blue ink under panhandle lights
     
    (instrumental)
    
    The road is dark but I see a glow up ahead
    I'll find a cheap motel for my bone weary head
    But tomorrow night I'll try to hang on real tight
    On a bucking bronco under panhandle lights
    
    Panhandle lights are bright and pretty in night time
    But they have no pity on a poor cowboy's dime
    The rodeo committee will think all is right
    When I sign in blue ink under panhandle lights
    
    Good Cowboy Music In My Soul (Larry W Jones 08/20/2014) (song#6977)
    
    I've been ridin' trails with my guitar and a song
    Sittin' on hay bales singin' about some cowpoke
    This way of livin' has gone on for much too long
    There's been too much givin' and this old cowboy's broke
    
    But there's good cowboy music in my soul
    So, I'll be singin' til I'm good and old
    Ridin' down the trail singin' is my goal
    Cause there's good cowboy music in my soul
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Someday the purple sage will wither and then die
    To remind me of my age and where I will lie
    Just how long that will be is in the great unknown
    Til then I'll ride the trails with guitar and a song
    
    Yes, there's good cowboy music in my soul
    So, I'll be singin' til I'm good and old
    Ridin' down the trail singin' is my goal
    Cause there's good cowboy music in my soul
    
    Hillbilly Country Song (Larry W Jones 08/20/2014) (song#6978)
    
    Well, now I realize my loss is from a big mistake
    A line was crossed that now has led to my great big heartache
    When true love dies because of some silly pig headed wrong
    It just makes me want to sing a hillbilly country song
    
    A hillbilly country song
    About a true love gone wrong
    A hillbilly country song
    In there somewhere I belong
    
    (instrumental)
    
    It's hard to realize that a true love is gone and dead
    Too little good was done and way too many wrongs were said
    When true love is still a dream that now will not come along
    It just makes me want to sing a hillbilly country song
    
    A hillbilly country song
    About a true love gone wrong
    A hillbilly country song
    In there somewhere I belong
    
    Hard To Come By Easy Gone (Larry W Jones 08/20/2014) (song#6978)
    
    It's hard to believe what you wrote, dear =9
    Your note meant that you are really gone
    You found someone else to bring you cheer
    So I'll pack my gear and move along
    
    Hard to come by, easy gone
    Sounds like a good country song
    It's too bad it sounds so sad
    Hard to come by, easy gone
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Send my photograph from your locket
    Replace it with the one you love now
    I'll keep it here safe in my pocket
    Although it won't matter anyhow
    
    Hard to come by, easy gone
    Sounds like a good country song
    It's too bad it sounds so sad
    Hard to come by, easy gone
    
    True love is hard to come by
    And it's easy to be gone
    
    Here Comes Trouble Again (Larry W Jones 08/22/2014) (song#6979)
    
    Whenever I almost get myself together
    I take it on the chin
    Whenever I almost bet there's sunny weather
    Here comes trouble again
    
    Trouble goes and trouble comes again upon me
    She goes and comes at will
    Whenever I dream it's always of her only
    These woes are numbing still
    
    (instrumental)
    
    Whenever I think I've found a new love that's true
    And my heart just might mend
    That's when she comes around and makes me feel so blue
    Here comes trouble again
    
    Whenever I almost get myself together
    I take it on the chin
    Whenever I almost bet there's sunny weather
    Here comes trouble again
    
    I'll Go Down Saddled Up (Larry W Jones 08/28/2014) (song#6980)
    
    The cowgirl I love didn't hang around
    She sprang for someone in another town
    Today I guess she's in her new ranch home
    I'm a mess but I can branch out alone
    
    Cause I'll go down saddled up on new trails
    Gonna ride til I need new horseshoe nails
    I'm not gonna frown over one spilled cup
    Tell all cowboys I'll go down saddled up
    
    (instrumental)
    
    I'll find a new cowgirl and buy her wine
    Somewhere down the trail with my silver dime
    Now, I may be a fool or something else
    But I'll go down saddled up by myself
    
    Cause I'll go down saddled up on new trails
    Gonna ride til I need new horseshoe nails
    I'm not gonna frown over one spilled cup
    Tell all cowboys I'll go down saddled up
