No One Took Their Place

they rode boldly across the silver screen,
                 these hero's of my youth;
they lived their lives by the "code of the west",
                  and honor was a part of that code,
                                         truth and honor was in their blood;
my hero's lived their lives by this code,
                   they lived boldly up there on the big screen,
                                          so much bigger than life;
yes,these were my hero's,
                    these brave men who rode on horse back,
                                           and who carried the law in a holster,
                                                                    while riding tall in the saddle;
oh how i eagarley followed their exploits,

                      men like Roy rogers and the Cisco Kid,
                                            along with Gene Autry ,John Wayne,and the Lone Ranger;
these men kept the law in the wild west,
                       along with hop-a-long,and Tex Ritter,
                                             and i anxiously followed their adventures,
                                                                   until that sad,sad day when---,
                                                                                       they rode off into the sun set;
yes, they rode off into the sunset,
                          old John,Roy, and Gene,
                                                they rode off into the sunset,and no one took their place;
how sad i felt on that dark dreary day,
                          when my hero's rode away,
                                                 but no one took their place,
                                                                   and,no one took their place.

    yes,there are still heros around,thank god;but the type of heros that i use to love to see in the movies,as a kid, very few are left like john wayne or roy rogers.
