On a dark and cold November night a singer songwriter

Came to us and pour out his heart and mind

With every word and melody,


With every beat of the drum and every key played

Brings us down on our knees and with every heart

Leaping for joy and waiting to hear more


He tells of stories of dreams and hopes

Takes us on a Journey no other man has done

With the screams and cheers on a one night stand


He reminds us that if tomorrow never comes

and tells us of a Dance that we share

With all the love and devotion comes from the heart of only one man

Born with a gift and talented as he to a man name Garth Brooks

We are dearly grateful we your fans would never be able to repay 

 For all that we have heard and seen

Thanks for the music and memories

Thanks for The Dance we truly do share


we shall be free....

Great dedication to Garth, a very talented man indeed-as a fellow country music lover, I really appreciated this.

Country music you can have, give me some good heavy metal, or older psychedelic rock, hell even classical, but never country...a neat poem all the same

I've heard of his name, but have not listened to his songs yet. Yes, I think he has a lot of fans and is very popular. I shall try listening to some of his songs now after I've read this poem. Thank you for the introduction of Garth to us!!!

Sandie May Joyce :o)

P.S. Oh, you might want to take a second look on the title of this poem.

As a fan of Garth Brooks, I can appreciate this wonderful tribute. A nicer man like him is truly hard to find; i have had the pleasure of meeting Garth Brooks in person! Another nice person to meet in person is Loretta Lynn, the Coal Miner's Daughter, my very favorite! :) Very well penned; bravo!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

I, too, love Garth Brooks and his music, and had the pleasure of meeting the man. A nicer gentleman you'll never meet. Beautiful tribute to him, Richard, well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
