What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

You See!

The Demise of the Old Cowboy

What Will I Miss?

Ode to Christian "Kiki" Fenot

Bobby and Me

The Highwayman

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

Paris

In a small Parisian café on the
west bank of the Seine,
I slowly sipped a glass of red
wine and listen to Edith Piaf sing.

The time, the place,
the spring of my life,
and the charm of
Paris at night.

Life was young,
time stood still and
everything was a thrill.

What a lovely sight.
The Eiffel tower shining
bright in the Paris night.

The barges slowly moving
on on the Seine,
the statues on the rue,
lovers walking hand in
hand, two by two.

The city of lights was
mine for a short time.
The year was nineteen fifty-two,
and I shall remember those
days until my time comes due.
  
Oh! Paris…
how I miss you,
and that wonderous time
of nineteen fifty-two.
