If You Think You Are Country

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Christopher Benedict

If You Think You Are Country

If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
You can listen to the different
styles of songs on the radio.
And you can sing the words
when you are alone at home.
If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
It’s like a religious experience.
You have to feel it in your soul.

If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
You can dance the two step,
or you can just move real slow.
You can wear jeans and such,
but that can be just for show.
If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
It’s like a religious experience.
You have to feel it in your soul.

If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
Name the hits of Hank Williams
and George Jones in a row.
Sometime in your life the Grand
Ole Opry is the place to go.
If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
It’s like a religious experience.
You have to feel it in your soul.

End of a Movie

End of a Movie

I’m on my horse, on the run,
got to get to Kansas or Missouri.
Don’t say I was here, ’cause I
got to get there in a hurry.
There’s this man called the law,
and he doesn’t believe I’m
innocent of what I just saw.
Being free can only bring hope
he doesn’t catch up with me
and put me at the end of a rope.
At least you know I’m alive,
but just go back to your plow.
I love you, and need you, but,
Mother, I have to go now.

Gears of Emotion

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

Gears of Emotion

Action and reaction,
the two gears of emotion
intertwine and engage, and
make the wheel of life turn.

Action is an advance or attack
which authority is challenged,
and feelings of defiance burn.

Reaction is a response of defense
where the boss bites back, but
professionalism has be learned.

When the wheel turns smoothly,
the gears work together, quickly.
efficiently, and problems are solved.
When the wheel stops, the gears are
locked in a battle for control. Both
gears are needed for the wheel to roll.

In the Heat of the Night

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Brian Kohut

In the Heat of the Night

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover.
You said I wasn’t what you expected as a lover.
Minute by minute, our moments were surprised
with emotions we found in the heat of the night.

Lane violation

Lane violation

So, you think you are
Queen of the Road, and
can go wherever you want.
You never can go slow.

But if you stay on your side
of that yellow line,
I’ll stay on mine.
You can go your way,
and, Babe, I’ll be fine.
We don’t need any lane violations
on the Highway of Love.

When we cross the mark,
one of us always gets hurt.
Bodies connect and collide,
and we end up in the dirt.

But if you stay on your side
of that yellow line,
I’ll stay on mine.
You can go your way,
and, Babe, I’ll be fine.
We don’t need any lane violations
on the Highway of Love.

I’m Going Back

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

I’m Going Back

I hear the morning train,
The only one on the track,
This will be my last ride
because I’m going back.

Back home where I belong,
back where I am free,
back where I can sing my songs.

I hear the whistle blowing,
and I hold on to my cowboy hat.
I need to look my best
because I’m going back,

Back home with all my friends.
back where I know I’m me,
back where I’ll be loved till the end.

The Long Way Back Home

The Long Way Back Home

His face was on posters all over the land.
With $2500 on his head, dead or alive,
Leonard” Yancey” Dare was a wanted man.
He once had a good woman who made
A good wife, and also had a son, but
Hadn’t seen both because of his guns.
He killed someone, broke the law
And more, and was living on the run.
Both Yancey and I were together in a
Bloody fight some call a Civil War,
Where there was a lot of killing, and
I don’t remember what we fought for.
Yancey was a person I called a friend,
But now I trailed him to the end.
There was a chance one of his bullets
Could have struck me dead, but the
Old tarnished star on my vest and
My guns were good enough to
Shoot the outlaw in the head.
I took him to where he called home,
And his son, upset, was not alone.
His son has since been all grown up,
Enough to start his own family.
He wondered why Yancey had to
Die so senselessly and violently.
I had to bring him to justice,
As it was my lawfully sworn duty.
I really didn’t want to kill him,
But his guns were pointing at me.
I wanted to bring him home,
The long way back for a final rest.
Yancey was a friend of mine, and
I thought this way was the best.
I tried to make his son, the only
Way I could, to understand that
Yancey was more than an outlaw.
He was a father, friend, and a man.
I was only doing the best I could.
I looked at his son, sitting in
The corner, with a tear in his eye.
I put Yancey’s guns on the table,
And walked away with a “Good-Bye.”

I’m in love with you (but I don’t know why)

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Adrian Parker

I’m in love with you (but I don’t know why)

I’m in love…
I’m in love…
I’m in love with you, girl,
and I really don’t know why.
I can’t live…
I can’t live…
I can’t live without your touch,
My heart will break with a lie.
But I need…
But I need…
But I need you so much, girl.
Without you, I’d probably die.

They say trouble follows you around.
They say you’re the baddest apple in town.
But I accidentally fell in love with you.
Now my friends are saying I’m a fool.

I’m in love…
I’m in love…
I’m in love with you, girl,
and I really don’t know why.
I can’t live…
I can’t live…
I can’t live without your touch,
My heart will break with a lie.
But I need…
But I need…
But I need you so much, girl,
Without you, I’d probably die.

They say problems appear wherever you go.
They say you’re someone I shouldn’t know.
But I accidentally fell in love with you.
My emotions I have make me feel brand new.

I’m in love…
I’m in love…
I’m in love with you, girl,
and I really don’t know why.
I can’t live…
I can’t live…
I can’t live without your touch,
My heart will break with a lie.
But I need…
But I need…
But I need you so much, girl
Without you, I’d probably die.
