Cowboys don't cry, and heroes don't die
Good always wins, again and again
And love is a sweet dream that always comes true
Oh, if life were like the movies, I'd never be blue

Oh, if life were like the movies, I'd never be blue

To say only second to Garth would be of commercial interest and history will tell the test of time. We certainly hope both artist we be with us as long as the "Possum" don't take this wrong Garth is a real talent, I wish he would stay on top, slow and steady and not burn out.
Great comments and music
RIP jones & my father in law who idolized him, maybe a little to much.
