When Doves Fly

A sporting event occurs every year Participants find it a sensation Hunting white wing doves along the “fly-by” When they’re making their southern migration The most favored hunting location is Along the Texas/ Mexico border Everyone brings lots of shells to this hunt If you can, two shotguns are in order These birds will normally fly-by in waves Their flight is very fast and erratic You must be alert and always prepared Reactions must be quick and automatic The shooting will be fast and furious And your shotgun barrel will over-heat If you planned ahead, grab that other gun And keep-on shooting to bring home the meat Excitement builds the day before the hunt My dreams that night, I’ll see them in the sky Keep thinking of the hunt, it hard to sleep I’ll be ready tomorrow, “WHEN DOVES FLY”
