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

A Celebration of Freedom





IT IS THE FOURTH OF July,
THE GLORIES DAY OF OUR NATION'S BIRTH,
AND WE CELEBRATE HEAVEN HERE AT THIS
BEAUTIFUL SPOT ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH.

AMERICA, AMERICA ...NOW AND FOR EVERY
THE LAND OF LIBERTY, AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
AWAY OF LIFE BOUGHT WITH BLOOD AND
STRIFE, AND GOD WILLING IT WILL NEVER FALL.

TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE BORE THE COST
OF OUR FREEDOM, WE BOW OUR HEADS AND THANK THEM
IN A SILENT PRAYER.

FOR THEY HAVE BRAVELY FOUGHT AND DIED KEEPING
THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE FLYING HIGH FOR ME AND YOU
WITH ALL OF ITS LOVE AND CARE.

FREEDOM WILL ALWAYS BE OUR AS LONG AS OUR YOUNG
MEN AND WOMEN PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO AMERICA
AND FOR WHAT IT STANDS...ONE NATION INDIVISIBLE
UNDER GOD.
