Hey y'all,  just thought I'd share this.  It is the best version I've found on Youtube.

"James shook his head and twirled his Colt into it's holster with a smile.  There was some coffee left in the pot, so he poured it in his cup and leaned against the wall by the door.  The sun was setting in the distance, creating a beautiful sunset. 
   “Texas has better sunsets.”  He heard Terri say next to him.  He turned to face her.
   “Of course it does.  But we gotta get what we can in the mean time.” He said with a lopsided grin.  She smiled back and pulled her Colt, stuffing the barrel into his belly.
   “Yer' getting slow.  Better work on that.”  She said and walked back into the house with the empty coffee pot. 
   “We saw that, y' know.”  Clint Rounds said laughing.   James turned red and tried to hide his embarrassment."   Excerpt fromTHE FLOPPY HAT FROM TEXAS," being written by yours truly.



   I was told recently that I'm "livelier than a one-legged man at a butt-kicking contest."    Is that an insult or a compliment?

Until then,here's a song i wrote when The Possum passed on~


Well today i lay me down to rest,i've writtin my last song

i've loved and lived,and frought with anger,my journey

 thank god it has been long~

 The band they've stopped playin,the guitars picked that final string,

and now i lay me down to rest,i think i heard an angel sing!~~~~

 

Like a soft wind blowin through the pines

I heard an angel  it must be mine

i've had the worse and lord knows the best~

and now my journeys over,it's time i lay me down to rest~~

 

It's mama and  papa,i will surely see

at the right hand of our lord we shall ever be

in our reach the silky clouds,our bended knees on trails of gold

 i'll be living the greatest story,Oh the greatest story ever told~

 

 

 
Like a soft wind blowin~softly~ through the pines

I heard an angel sing i know it must be mine

i've had the worse and lord knows the best~

and now my journeys over,it's time i lay me down to rest~~

 

(the tune Just as i am fades in.)

 

My earthly journey over!It's time i lay,me down to rest...

Nice! Here's one of my fave American poems:


i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
