SHY BOY FROM RED HOLLOW
I`m the shy boy from Red Hollow.|
I was to shy to ask a girl to follow.
In other words, I didn`t have the nerve
to ask a girl for a date.
So loneliness was my fate.
At age nineteen, I joined Uncle Sam.
I was always polite
in saying, ''Yes Sir'', and ''Yes Mam.''
While I was home on leave,
I was introduced to a teenage queen.
When I thought there was no one
for me, She came on the scene.
We were both nineteen.
Believe me or not,
She gave me my first kiss.
We kissed many times after this.
We married about six weeks later.
After twenty three years
of joy and tears,
she gave me a divorce.
As husband and wife,
there was no further discourse.
When I thought there was no one to care,
God didn`t leave me, He was there.
He always comforts me through friends
and through prayer.
[ When I thought there was no one ]
