The Sword

Written By: Joseph L. Crockett

went to the edge of the world
but got lost in the woods
no one could save me but you

crossed over the ocean
by light of the silvery moon
all I could think of was you

came to the valley of death
with my sword and I stood
no one could save me but you

climbed up the mountain
and into the sky to return
into the arms of you

and I keep moving on


Written By: Joseph L. Crockett

stay away from them young gals
they'll tear your heart out, boy

ain't nothing like them old gals
who'll treat you like they should

Black Cloud

Written By: Joseph L. Crockett

no place to hide or run
black cloud's gonna hide the sun
gotta keep moving on

gonna die for a rich man's blood
they call the Evil One
black cloud's gonna hide the sun
