this pome was to be a Tribute to Late Keith Whitley but as I was remember back of all the stars who eather friends of him or that help him they each had made Country music special.



From Keith Whitley To Willie Nelson,

Writers And Singers To Fill Our Days

With Songs That Warm The Heart And

Touch The Soul,

From Charlie Daniels To Merle Haggard To

Hank Williams Jr, To Waylon Jennings, To

Dwight Whitley The Country Comes Alive,

From Montgomery & Gentry To

The King Of The Road Comes A

Felling That Seems To Never Go Away,

From The Cowboys Of Yesterday To The

Cowboys Of Today The Music Still Lives On,

From Riding Up On There Horse Out On The

Big Open Spaces The Felling Of The Sound

Of Country Music Seem To Fill The

Quite Country Side

With The Greatness Of Each Singer That Writes

The Words And Plays The Tunes

To Bring Back The Days Of Yesterday

Of A Life That Once Used To Be.

The Country Still Lives On....

When I was growing up Mama kept the radio on to a country music station all day long. I was raised on all the singers you mentioned and also Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline, Skeeter Davis and Tammy Wynette. Loretta was my favorite, I went to one of her concerts many years ago and will never forget it. She was wonderful. Amazing poem and tribute, Richard. I enjoyed it!
