Sisters & The Bachelor

Written By: Gordon Crews

I was walking down the river trail
it must have been a month or two ago
I was taken by the Sisters and the Bachelor
we all have come to know
There was a mist upon the river
as the sunrise changed from red to vivid gold
it was then i realized there is no better place
to live your life and to grow old

You'll meet friends along the river
who will offer you a helping hand to hold
in return they'll ask for nothing they'll just smile
and say it's time for them go
There is no pace I have ever lived
that I have wanted to call home
The life we have is special
It's a life so many want to call their own

Our home in central Oregon is beautiful
with mountains under snow
The desert to the east is full of life
and it's a peaceful place to go
The town of Bend s growing
and our quality of life is widely known
What was once our little secret is no more
and we have got to let it go

I was walking down the river trail
it must have been a month or two ago
I was taken by the Sisters and the Bachelor
we all have come to know
it was then i realized there is no better place
to live your life and to grow old

Central Oregon is where I live my life
and I am proud to call it home.

Louisiana memories

Written By: Gordon Crews

Well I'll go back,
to where the sun shines so warm
Where all the ladies talk
with that old familiar southern charm

I can't seem to stay away for long
Before an old Louisiana memory
comes along

I'll take the bayou
the mighty Mississippi breeze
I'll take New Orleans on a Friday night
With a lovely lady by the river, in the moonlight

One day I'll go back
to where the sun shines warm
Where all the ladies walk and they talk
with that old familiar southern charm

I can't seem to stay away for long
Before an old Louisiana memory
comes along

I can't seem to stay away for long
Before an old Louisiana memory
comes along

Oh lousiana (refrain)

The Levy Valley

Written By: Gordon Crews

Her life long dream it slipped away
The old home place was sold today
There's no place else she'd rather stay
She called it home

Her gradpa's sweat it cleared away
Timber from the valley where he grew his hay
I guess there's not much more to say but so long

So long to the springs and the calvies
goodbye to the place called the Levy valley
So log to the place that one day
She dreamed to call her home

So long to the springs and the calvies
goodbye to the place called the Levy valley
So log to the place that one day
She dreamed to call her own

The auctioneer will make his pay
he'll sell another family's life away
to him it's just another day
but to her its all gone

I guess there's not much mopre to say
but pray that there will come a better day
when the dream that she had taken away
Finally calls her home

So long to the springs and the calvies
goodbye to the place called the Levy valley
So log to the place that one day
She dreamed to call her home

So long to the springs and the calvies
goodbye to the place called the Levy valley
So log to the place that one day
She dreamed to call her own

Old home place, so long

The Levy Valley

Written By: Gordon Crews

Her life long dream it slipped away
The old home place was sold today
There's no place else she'd rather stay
She called it home

Her grandpa's sweat it cleared away
Timber from the valley where he grew his hay
I guess there's not much more to say but so long

So long to the springs and the calvies
Goodbye to the place called the Levy valley
So long to the place that one day
She dreamed to call her home

So long to the springs and the calvies
Goodbye to the place called the Levy valley
So long to the place that one day
She dreamed to call her own

The auctioneer will make his pay
He'll sell another family's life away
To him it's just another day
But to her it’s all gone

I guess there's not much more to say
But pray that there will come a better day
When the dream that she had taken away
Finally calls her home

So long to the springs and the calvies
Goodbye to the place called the Levy valley
So log to the place that one day
She dreamed to call her home

So long to the springs and the calvies
Goodbye to the place called the Levy valley
So log to the place that one day
She dreamed to call her own

Old home place, so long
