No matter where you go my love is sure to know
Please never lose the sun until day is done
Let your feelings flow wherever they may go
We may not understand all the spirits plan
Just let it slip away and we can live today

Try to lose your fears there is no need for tears
When I call your name nothing will be the same
Before this day is through you’ll know my love is true
For how long you say forever and a day

Rattlesnake Dick ~ Western Outlaw Theme

The Mystic Hedgehog gets in his Time Machine and travels back to California in the 1850s where he meets Rattlesnake Dick.

This is a song I sent Shelby Singleton 25 years ago. He thought it innovative, but not commercial. I do believe he was right. In case you’re interested, here are the chords and lyrics.

Chords
Verse Em-Am-D-Em
Chorus Am-D-Em-Am-D-Em

This here’s the story of Rattlesnake Dick an outlaw who didn’t have much success
He was a miner in the mountains out west but you know he never struck it rich
He left his family in the east behind they say his sister and his mother cried
The local law gave him no peace of mind they accuse him of all kinds of crimes

Rattlesnake Dick sitting round the parlor reading your dime novels
Dreaming of fame no one will remember your name

It wasn’t long till the word came back he’d fallen in with an outlaw pack
Out near Folsom on the Auburn Road was a place they called the Mountaineer Home
Tom Bell and the worst of the lot made it their favorite night spot
And they would rob ya for a buck or a dime but Wells Fargo was their favorite line

Chorus

Dick was doing ninety days in jail for interfering with the U.S. Mail
He hadn’t robbed them he’d committed no crime he only stopped them to ask the time
While Dick was stuck in jail they say the boys robbed the army’s pay
They made off with eighty thousand in gold but Rattlesnake he missed the boat\

Chorus

One night out on the Auburn Road Dick met his end and that was all
In his pocket it was said they found
A letter from his mother
Saying Dick please come home

In case you’re interested, here are the lyrics. If you want the chords you should be able to work it out fairly easily, it’s a basic early Rock progression.

Buddy Holly’s Alive

When I was a boy I went to a show
Some called it noise others rock and roll
It was in 59, in Clear Lake Iowa
The music sounded fine we knew what it was

Come with me tonight
Cause Buddy Holly’s alive
Ritchie Valens is there
And J.P.’s doing his share

The people stood in line, snow was coming down
The people didn’t mind, when they heard the pretty sound
When they came onstage the Surf began to rock
The music came of age, I prayed it would never stop

Chorus

Now we all know how it went, the story has been told
But it didn’t really end out there in the cold
Cause now I’m on that stage playing Buddy’s songs
We won’t forget his name the legend will go on

Chorus
