Nancy and I met some wonderful people on our visit to The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas this past March. While sitting at "The Perch," we had the pleasure to meet Mo Jones his wife Gill and their daughter Charlotte from Wales. Since then, Mo and I have corresponded frequently, and I promised him I would write a song for Charlotte. So here it is, Sgt. Major Jones. I hope this brings back wonderful memories of your trip to Texas and The Alamo. By the way, this may be the only song ever written with the word "Wayneamo" in it. CHARLOTTE AT BRACKETTVILLE Mike Boldt
There's so many things that we all want to do
And there's so many things that we just want to say
And the distance between them sometimes stands in the way.

And this time I said we all must go
Me and Gill and Charlotte so.
We left our home to fly to the Alamo

We packed our bags and boarded the plane
That took us thousands of miles to the U.S. of A.
And we touched down in San Antone on a beautiful day.

We all got to the Perch to see our friends
There's John and Sue, Jeffery and Ned
Larry and Shell and too many more to say

And I simply had to cry, and no matter how I tried
I can never forget the thrill, of Charlotte at Brackettville

A group of us all decided to go
Down to Brackettville, Texas to the Wayneamo
You could feel the excitement cracklin in the air

And Rich was our guide; he showed us around
From the old fortress to the Western town
Then Charlotte looked at me and started to smile

The two of us stood by the chapel wall
I guess I never noticed that she'd grown so tall
She said the words that really hit me home

She said, "Dad, you made it and I am here
and so is Mum" and it was so clear
She gave me a hug and I wiped away my tear

Bridge- The Stars were shining bright, on that Texas night (repeat)

She said, "Dad, you made it and I am here
and so is Mum" and it was so clear
