    A great title for a country song...

    I love writing songs & poems. Sometimes, though, I'll be on a writing dry spell until a bit of inspiration comes along. A couple days ago, I got a really great idea for a song title, as well as a subject to write about. Here it is...

    Last couple years, I've been seeing a gal in Paducah. She is fun, energetic, beautiful and rich. (I know, the rich shouldn't enter into it, but it was something I was not used to) We have been on and off, though, partly due to the 2 1/2 hour commute between our homes. Anyhow, we talked seriously the other night and then the next day, rather unexpectedly, I got a 'dear John' text. It was nice enough, but she didn't think we were going to work. Then the next text said "Good luck Cowboy". And that was it.

    "Good luck, Cowboy". Boy, those words just keep echoing in my head. That stings more than just a little, but on the positive side, what a great song inspiration & title! Reckon I'm going to get to writing while I still feel the sting of those words...I either need to get to writing or drinking, and I think drinking ain't the right option.

    Well if you do start drink'n don't write anything about tears in your beer, it's already been done.


    There's a tear in my beer
    Cause I'm cryin for you, dear
    You are on my lonely mind
    Into these last nine beers
    I have shed a million tears
    You are on my lonely mind


    Seriously, don't take it too hard. It's better she let you go than string you along. "Better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all"

    -Ruff draft- You finish it.Good luck cowboy see you on the other side -

    It was a good run,
    Even if some things we cannot hide.
    The life we shared were great, a rambling rose but to nowher to reside.
    Emotions full of foggy perceptions
    Is not enough -
    Not enough to make all the exceptions of love, we both sigh.
    Good luck cowboy hoist your brand high!
    Between fireworks and rainy days, we sorted it all out
    We both know why.
    Before the great divorce that we both could see
    So good luck Cowboy here is where the trail does divide.

    Every story has an ending some more broken than others
    We shared a split pee soup and warm stories and romping leather.
    Truly is it better we both wave the flag of glory together.
    We both win with hearts full of cheer for this story for others to hear.
    Good luck Cowboy, I will always remember your kind of beer.
    My hand will raise in a toast to probably the love I will miss most.
    But it is not all fences and badges, so drink up!
    We both will remember when we raise the cup.
