“I hope what I’ve done,

Will be pleasing to your ear.”


Eddy Arnold

May 15, 1918 – May 8, 2008



We’ve very sadly lost another great

He was always a favorite ‘Ed’ of mine

His songs always hit my heart and soul

And I still listen to old Eddy all the time


‘Welcome To My World’

‘Make The World Go Away’

‘The Last Word In Lonesome - Is Me’

 ‘I’m Bringin Daddy’s Letter Home Today’


His real fine ‘Gonna Find Me A Bluebird’

And a little song he sang, called ‘Butterfly’

We’ve just lost another great country singer

And it makes an old fan like me, wanna cry


And as long as I live, I’ll still be whistlin to

His marvelous old yodelin song, ‘Cattle Call’

“He rides in the sun, ‘til his day’s work is done;

And then he rounds up those cattle, every fall.”


Good Old Eddy Arnold,

A True Country Legend;

I’ll still be listenin to him,

When my time’s at an end.


And maybe, just maybe, someday,

I’ll hear him a yodelin in the sky;

Now, wouldn’t that be somethin,

As I see good old Eddy, ridin by.


Eddy Arnold - Currently Ranked

The Number One Country Artist;

And 28 of His Many Marvelous Songs,

Ranked Number One On Country Charts.



And I Just Gotta Love A Guy

Who Was The Lead Vocalist,

For The Pee Wee King Band;

Now, Good Old Pee Wee King,

He Even Did The Polka So Grand.


And Now, Eddy Rides Through The Sky,

Still Yodelin Away, As He Gallops On By.



©2008, Mr. Pee Wee Ed

Another Icon of American culture to play his way into the heavens above and join all those who have crossed before. He will surely be missed as he devoted his life to so many worthwhile causes. You have done him justice ten fold through your words of sincerity....

Be always safe,
