Get Rid Of The Advertisements

car radio 'n texas
 

 
sketch by
walt larsen
of the king
of champagne
music


















Why isn't music
the way it used
to be,
as listen again
to the best
there ever was
in country,
and it makes one
wonder where
we're going
as mister
Lawrence Welk
is recalled
of another time
when we
listened in
to a treasure?


~~~~~~~~~~~

The eyes will
mist~~~~~
again within
recollections
of how it was
driving thru
the great state
of Texas
back in sixty four,
as the
clairvoyant music
kept the eyes
blurred~~~~~~
with salty tears
a falling~~~
within a
mood altering
calling~~~~~~
of the heart.

~~~~~~~~~~

We were
a part
of a favored
generation
as the miles
sped by
the window,
and oh
to know
the prolific
tumbleweeds
were blowing
cross the
prairie
and the
highway
to heaven
with Jim Reeves
'n Patsy Kline
entwined
into the senses.

~~~~~~~~~~

So hard
to forget
that trip
in the 98
Oldsmobile
across Texas,
listening to
the best
of country
music.

~~~~~~~~~
