“I’d Do It All Over Again”

A kid packed his bags heavy,

threw them in his Chevy truck

Headed down to Texas,

where people had said he should try his luck

He spent his first months in Fort Worth,

staying w/a good friend of his,

Working days as a dishwasher

& spending his nights

playing gigs,

Being a musician it was a tough row to hoe

but even so, he was glad he made a go of it,

Years later when he’d succeeded,

He said “I’ve got to admit,

If I had to go back, I’d do it all over again”

Travis

Travis knew he loved music from an early age

Barely older than a toddler when he first hit a stage,

Every chance he got, the kid would play

Never cared how many dues he had to pay

He was sure he’d succeed one day

He had several good musician friends

Who taught & encouraged him,

Though there were other people

who at first thought he’d crash & burn

Eventually, even their respect he earned

He spent a lot of years working his training ground

Getting ever better, honing his unique sound

Passion Uncaged

A guitar man unmatched,

a breath of fresh air in his generation

Silenced too soon,

his life is still an inspiration

Though it can’t be denied

he brought the house down

every time he’d climb on the stage

with pure & raw talent,

and passion uncaged,

He remained just a humble Texas boy

Loved the music, loved to play

Didn’t care even for a moment about world acclaim

Just using his music to touch hearts every day
