Firelight Dance

A young couple staying in safe

from harsh winter snow

dances together and time seems to slow

They enjoy the warmth of firelight as it glows

& they hold each other close

And The Rest Is History

Down in Lake Charles, Louisiana 

Lives Eddy & his sweet Susanna

He originally came from Alabama

& she was raised in Texarkana

They met on a Greyhound bus in 2003

He was originally headed for Georgia,

her to Tennessee

They sat down together, talked for what seemed like forever

They found they were birds of a feather, & the rest is history

Juanita said she wanted Gabriel to take her to a picture show

Gabriel said he had another idea, he put music on the stereo 

then waltzed her around their parlor nice & slow,

& before long she’d forgotten all about the picture show

The smile on her face was so bright it nearly glowed

Gabriel wasn’t always great w/romance,

but he knew Juanita could never turn down a dance

She’d do it every day if she got the chance

Gypsy Queen

He was the son of carnival folk,

all who knew him said he hardly spoke

but all that changed when she came along,

A true gypsy queen playing her charming song

They were both wild, loved to move their feet

They talked & danced together to their own drum beat

He told her, “girl, I’ve never felt more free”

She said, “You always will be, if you stick with me”
