Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

Bobby and Me

The Highwayman

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

On theDark side of the Moon!

The Wind Blew

Where were you@?

How old areyou?

In the Blink of an Eye

Once upon a time...Many, Many Years Ago

Once upon a time, many, many years ago in a place forlorn
a forsaken young boy lived in orphan scorn.

He had no mother, no father, no brothers or sisters
to comfort him in his orphan plight.

He was all alone during those long days and frightful nights.
Those despairing days slowly turned to months and years.
He becomes a young man full of anger, pain and hidden tears.

Life goes on and the young man learned to survive
his past fears and trepidation.
He turns his life around and finds peace in his new
encounters and relations.

But he's never forgotten the early days of his youth when
sadness, fear, and anger was the daily truth.

Those sad days are long go, but the frightful
emptiness of those childhood memories live on.

Once and orphan...always an orphan.
Once upon a time…many, many years ago.
