Try this with headphones..
Just some pics of my last trip to Oregon..I built a gate and a bench..My lady and I caught some fish and had a great time..Please enjoy my original song and pics..
One night on the trail, my old friend went down.
I ran to his side, held his head off the ground.
He told me, "don't ya' worry, I want you to know."
"There's a far better place, if it's my time to go."
Then he told of a young man , that died and returned.
The things he had seen, in his memory were burned.
He'd kept it a secret all of his life.
But he told it to me, on that warm stary night.
In Heaven there ain't no cowboys.
The pearly gates and the walls, make it to small.
So they give all the sky, to the cowboys when they die.
The stars are the campfires of a Cowboys Paradise.
"That bronc nearly killed me, he said with a sigh."
"I was twenty years old, that story is mine."
Then for the very last time, my friend closed his eyes.
Not headed to heaven, but a Cowboys Paradise.
Now he's up by the stars, campfires in the sky.
A'tellin' his stories in a Cowboys Paradise.
He's in a Cowboys Paradise.
I'm gonna miss you old friend...
