Keep Smiling...
  • Transcript


    I’ve often dreamed of being a cowboy.

    You? You’ve got to be kidding.

    I can identify with that way of life: lonesome trails, dark nights and sad songs.

    They’re not all sad songs.

    Every cowboy song is a sad one. If it’s not sad, it’s not a cowboy song.

    What about Happy Trails?

    It may seem happy on the surface, but if you listen for them, dark undertones are there.

    The lyrics may say “happy trails to you until we meet again” but what they mean is “Woe is me that I sojourn in Mineral City...

    "...My heart longs to be in brighter pastures with a harmonica and a plate of beans...

    "...I speak of peace but those about me long only for war. Woe is me.”
