What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

Robin Fly Away



You See!

The Demise of the Old Cowboy

What Will I Miss?

Ode to Christian "Kiki" Fenot

Bobby and Me

The Highwayman

*Let My Spirit Soar*

C'est La Vie

Les feuilles mortes

Before Destiny takes me!

The Hanging Tree

Lost in Time

The Golden Years?

Beyond The Shadows

A Soilder

Ode to an Old Cowboy Poet named....Jack

Our Flag!

Come on Down!

For The Principles of the Red White and Blue

When it's All Been Said and Done

Lost Souls of Yesteryear

On theDark side of the Moon!

Cactus Jack and the Deveil's Gold

The Wind Blew

Where were you@?

How old areyou?

In the Blink of an Eye

Tears of Despair


In the deep dark silence of my soul,
a yearning to do something right
for once, before I grow senile
and old.

The years have come and the years
have gone, and yet I seem to just
stumble on.

Day by day…
yet nothing seem to come my way.
If tomorrow is the same as today,
then what happened to yesterday?

Dark days, we all have…
but must they come in lots?
Are is it true, that we make
our own lucky shots?

Who said life is fair?
Critics we must all learn to bear.
But yet there must be solitude somewhere!

Tears of despair, pull out my hair.
Oh! No.
I’m going to hang on to the
preverbal rope and pray for hope!
