 Poems by The Old Cowboy

Back in Memories

 Take my hand step back with me to better times
 When we were all young and in our primes
 To the past where life seemed so easy
 Of sunny days and nights so breezy

 The corner store where cold cokes could be found
 Jukeboxes playing our favorite sounds
 Penny loafers and tight pegged pants
 Watching to see if the girls give you a glance

 A Chevy  v-eight with colors two tone
 And no one driving around with a cell phone
 Gas a gallon for twenty five cents
 Everyone was cool no one tense

 High school football was played with pride
 It was still safe to hitchhike a ride
 Leather jackets spit curls and duck tails were bad
 Saddle shoes poodle skirts and bobby socks were the fad

 Remember when putt putt golf came along
 And the platters sang great love songs
 What a thrill just to hold hands
 Listening to your favorite band

 The first A and W  Root Beer in your town
 Where everyone stopped while cruising around
 Kids were safe at school none carried guns
 We were just too busy having clean fun

 I miss the days of my youth so long ago
 Watching Larry Curly and Moe
 Laughing with Dean and Jerry
 And that great coke with a hint of cherry

 What a shame those days have faded away
 Life would be much easier if they would have stayed
 But alas they are no more then dreams and thoughts of the past
 Things changed and we all have had to travel with time so fast
