HYMNS for the Over 50 Crowd

Precious Lord, Take My Hand, And Help Me Up
It is Well with My Soul, But My Knees Hurt
Nobody Knows the Trouble I have Seeing
Just a Slower Walk with Thee
Count Your Many Birthdays, Name Them One by One
Go Tell It on the Mountain, But Speak Up
Give Me the Old Timer's Religion
Blessed Insurance
Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah, I've Forgotten Where I Parked

Valentines Day Poem

Collards is green, my dog's name is Blue, and I'm so lucky to have a sweet thing like you.
Yore hair is like cornsilk a-flapping in the breeze, softer than Blue's and without all them fleas.
You move like a bass, which excites me in May, You ain't got no scales but I love you anyway.
Yo're as satisfy'n as okry jist a fry'n in the pan, Yo're as fragrant as "snuff " right out of the can.
You have some'a yore teeth, for which I am proud, I hold my head high when we're in a crowd.
On special occasions,when you shave under your arms, well I'm in hawg heaven,and awed by yore charms.
Still them fellers at work, they all want to know, what I did to deserve such a purdy young doe.
Like a good roll of duct tape yo're there fer yore man, to patch up life's troubles and fix what you can.
Yo're as strong as a fourwheeler racin' through the mud, yet fragile as that sanger named Naomi Judd.
Yo're as cute as a junebug a-buzzin' overhead, You ain't mean like those far ants I found in my bed.
Cut from the best cloth like a plaid flannel shirt, you spark up my life more than a fresh load of dirt.
When you hold me real tight like a padded gunrack, my life is complete, Ain't nuttin' I lack.
Yore complexion, it's perfection, like the best vinyl sidin', Despite all the years, yore age, it keeps hidin'.
And when you get old like a '57 Chevy, I won't put you on blocks and let grass grow up heavy.
Me 'n' you's like a Moon Pie with a RC cold drink, we go togeather like a skunk goes with stank.
Some men, they buy chocolate for Valentine's Day, They git it at Wal-Mart,it's romantic that way.
Some men git roses on that special day, from the cooler at Kroger's. "That's impressive", I say.
Some men buy fine diamonds from a flea market booth, "Diamonds are forever", they explain, suave and cooth.
But for this man, honey, these won't do, Cause yor'e too special,you sweet thang you.
I got you a gift, without taste nor odor, more useful than diamonds........IT'S A NEW TROLL'N MOTOR!!
