No more Rhinestone suits,

No more dominating the stage,

Just a craggy faced figure

Lines carved by stress and age,

And a plaintive last song 

Accepting of the fact

Alzeimhers will control

That last slow act.


“I’ll not remember you”,

Just an acceptance of the fact

And such a dignified ending

To a long standing class act:

I’ll miss the Rhinestone Cowboy

And wish him quiet, dignified end.

For so many years his music 

Has made him, to me, almost a friend.
