(By Eric Taylor)
Ronnie stood beneath the movie marquee
His memories all curled up inside
He was trying to remember
Was it August or September
He'd seen her for the last time
He'd heard that she'd become an actress
Lord, she always had the prettiest face
John Philip Griffith
He was a simple man only to a stranger.
And the kindness in his eyes
I still remember.
Now that he is old,
They say he's angry and he's cold,
That his soul is dying.
He's a wealthy man's dream,
And he's a working man's dime.
He has stood in both men's shoes
(By Bruce Carlson)
In an old pickup truck, with his hat pulled down
He drives them old Montana backroads
Remembering half-forgotten times, and wondering where it's gone
And if he can still carry the load
Now, the summer sun is setting, and the moon is on the rise
As he pulls that old pickup into town
And he parks beside the place where the feed store used to be
There's A Light Beyond These Woods (Mary Margaret)
There's a light beyond these woods, Mary Margaret.
Do you think that we will go there,
And see what makes it shine, Mary Margaret?
It's almost morning, and we've talked all night,
You know we've made big plans for ten-year-olds,
You and I.
Have you met my new boy friend, Margaret?
His name is John, and he rides my bus to school,
And he holds my hand.
