glenn campbell

my rhine stone cowboy
i have known you for so long
so many records and so many songs
we have aged haven't we
and words just seem to fade nowa days
but i remember when we were in our prime
a country music star you were in my time
nothing less than all the rest
you came out with songs that were the best
and now that grey has taken away
we look at you and honor this day
the best country singer that came our way
i'll never forget you and our day
you were my generation
and you played it well
God had blessed you with a wonderful spell
and if it were i that had to tell
Glenn Campbelle was the best i'd yell

    Well my friend, you haven't been affected by our age. You still know how to put words together and get a beautiful poem. I appreciate the lovely words you wrote on my poem. How are you doing on facebook? I really can't get into it but will visit every now and then. God Bless and keep up your good work. Cile

    John, this is a nice poetic tribute to one of the finest country-western singers who ever cut a record. However, he spells his last name "Campbell" just like the soup.
