Les feuilles mortes
Before Destiny takes me!
The Hanging Tree
Lost in Time
The Golden Years?
Beyond The Shadows
Ode to an Old Cowboy Poet named....Jack
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
I'll Just Keep Walking!
Until You Quit Loving Me
Do You Remember When?
Sometime, I'm still in Nam
Sir, That's why We Were There!
Those Were the Days
The Stars and Stripes Forever
Tearful Thoughts of an Old Soldier

The Great American Tax Payer
Things are just great…so they say!
Gas goes up a dollar everyday.
If this keeps up…we'll all be walking
and our cars at home will simply stay.
It only took a few days to win the war,
but look at the years it'll take to win the peace.
A few good men and women die everyday, but
as the years go by, that amount will soar no matter
how much we cry and pray.
Our borders are standing wide open …thousands are coming in;
illegal, outlaws, dope peddlers and terrorists too! Pretty soon,
there will be no room for me or you!
With the cost of all this and shots to the moon,
your taxes will soar like a trillion dollar balloon!
They say it takes the first four months of each year
to earn the taxes we pay. That just goes to prove
hard working Americans are getting the shaft
each and everyday!
AFTA, is going to make your life easier…so they said.
What do you mean…you can't find a job!
There's plenty of jobs; picking vegetables, fruits,
flipping burgers and parking cars. At minimum wage…
you're sure to be hired!
Pay your taxes on time…so they can afford to continue
this folly of spending your last tax dime.
The good old American Tax Payer…what a great guy!
They say; Things are just great… Yeah! Well…they must be high!
