Ride For The Brand
« on: May 17, 2012, 11:32:57 pm »
I write and perform country christian Music. Because I portray a Saddlebag Preacher for area churches tent meetings and such, I wrote and recorded my one and only "cowboy Poetry" type genre on my last album. It started as a poem I wrote for my church. I hope you enjoy:


The Lord is my Shepherd
The bible is my guide
My horse is my partner,
My Colt’s on my side.
I’ll run from no one
And I’ll be left alone,
‘till my Master leads me
To another lost soul.

I never was a kind man,
I had my own faults,
Until my knees buckled
And my tears fell on rocks.
The day Jesus reached down
From an old wooden cross
And washed my soul clean,
White as a brand new cloth.

I never knew a friend
That would give his life
For a tramp like me,
Rough and full of strife.
But He did, He accepted me
Like I was His own;
Like a brother, a pard,
An old patron’.

Now I am compelled
To ride for His brand,
Just for the love He’s shown
To this grizzled old man.
So onward old horse,
There are many to show
The error of their path
And the right trail to go.

The Lord is my Shepherd
The bible is my guide
My horse is my partner,
My Colt’s on my side.
I’ll run from no one
And I’ll be left alone,
‘till my Master leads me
To another lost soul.
"The Lord Is My Shepherd, The Bible is my guide, My horse is my partner, Mr. Remrington's on my side."

Not perfect...but forgiven. I'll take Grace over luck any day.
Yes, I do have more facial hair now.

Hi,

I saw this and had to make it the first thing you saw entering my house ...



Pretty much says it all.

TTFN,
My moniker is my great grandfather's name. He served with the 2nd Florida Mounted Regiment in the Civil War. Afterward, he came home, packed his wife into a wagon, and was one of the first NorteAmericanos on the Frio River southwest of San Antonio ..... Kinda where present day Dilley is ...
