Texas Legends

Listened to old Jackie I.

covering Guy Clark,

It could bring anyone

to joyous tears,

It was such a sweet

awesome tribute

beautiful music to my ears,

They are two true

Texas music legends,

Some of the best

that I have heard in years

This poem is inspired by Jack Ingram’s tributary cover of the late Guy Clark

Dallas Blues

Kenneth went down to Texas, to play Dallas blues

Didn’t have much else going for him, said “what have I got to lose?” 

His talent was obvious, clear as a bell,the more he made his audience smile,

the more in love with it he fell,but there were some people who wanted

to change him, because they only cared about what would sell

He told them:

“If I gave into you, I couldn’t face myself”

A Tribute To SRV

Stevie Ray was a guitar player

He played wild raw Texas blues

He poured his heart & soul into it

Spent years paying his dues

They say he played like a man on fire

& if you saw him, you know it’s true

His music seemed to flow so naturally

He played in ways no one else could do

Just when his star shined the brightest though

He was gone way too soon
