A cowboy writes his songs for you

SAMSUNG

It’s in the nights I know the tears
come swimming down you’re feeling blue
I find the time when I’m alone
to write some lovin’ words for you

I know she tipped her hat and smiled
while runnin’ wild she made you blue
but don’t you cry my little cow girl
a cowboy writes his songs for you

remember each and every time
she crossed a line to bring you down
that you’ll be fine this hand of mine
will add a line to lift your frown

and darlin’ I would rather die
then see you cry my baby blue
all she had was hurtful words
a cowboy writes his songs for you

it makes ya’ sad and gets ya’ down
and honey it’s so wrong to do
but don’t forget my every line
will stop the cryin’ she brings ya to

it makes ya’ mad and keeps ya’ strong
but don’t belong in love that’s true
cause honey she’s got hurtful words

Who’s gonna fill your shoes ? In loving memory of George Jones

I almost stopped my truck today
emotion started showin’
be
tween mandarin groves 

and country roads that
knew where I was goin’
I drove down to the riverside

just to see the water flowin’
and took a ride to my garden
afraid to find it wasn’t growin’  

The voice that sang those lovin’ songs
that got me on my feet again
and
helped my heart to carry on
through darker times of lovers sin
the only one who understood
the greatest cure for broken love
in Beulah land he’s singin’ songs
to comfort cowboys up above

Today he shook his daddies hand
and gave a kiss to his dear mother
imagine all the country greats
takin’ stages with each other

a sold out tour for lonely hearts
departed from the one back home
even the
 angels cry bein’ kept apart
from the love they called their own

Every morning with a bamboo cane
a deck of cards and a jug of muscadine
on the bayou watching a 
bobber dance
where
he’s no longer doin’ time

He taught me how to dream
and stay the way I am
while he got stoned on a women’s love
I tip my hat to the man
smiling down on us
from
his window up above

Rest in peace Mr. Jones ©
