just him,a horse and a dog

Post by balestabber » Mon Feb 07, 2011 10:41 pm

He was all alone---just him,a horse and a dog
keep'n warm by the fire---as he sat on a log
wish'n he had a friend---he could depend on and trust
as he made his cattle drive---thru the soapweed and dust

the sounds of nature---oft' he would hear
the howl of a yote---or the bleet of a deer
as he prepared his bed---to sleep under the stars
he thought of Jesus---the hands and the scars

then a voice from the heavens---began to speak
I am a friend---of the lonely and weak
you can talk to me---while out on the trail
and when you have trouble---i have payed your bail

you can follow me---as we make this drive
back to the ranch---thru the cactus I am alive
to hear your prayers---to cover your back
as you,the horse and the dog---bring up the slack

Super job there, balestabber. :tiphat:
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
