You Tube Rope Around Hope


Rope around Hope                    w/m Pamela Sue Perry copyright 2-23-MMXII (revised 2/25)

 

Verse     (Capo first fret)

Say cowboy, why so sad?

Is it something that I said?

Or are you wishing for what you had?

From out of the blue on black and orange day,

Your life was changed forever as she rode away.

Bridge

You can’t live your life roaming among the dead.

Chorus

So sing this song to bring her back if only for a moment.

There is no harm in remembering if it helps you to forget.

Verse

Hey there cowboy throw yourself a rope.

It is among the living where you’ll find hope.

Every one of us understands pain.

And love that is lost will never be again.

Bridge

When your soul is empty the demons climb in.

Chorus

Don’t let sorrow define your love; still waters run deep.

Embrace the past where memories live and rock yourself to sleep.

Verse

Pull the wagons in a circle and pony up.

All the tears in the world won’t fill your cup.

You’re just changing horses in a stream.

You will move on and see her in your dreams.

Bridge

You can’t live your life roaming among the dead.

Chorus

So throw a rope a round hope and lasso the wind.

Emptiness is like a broken fence; it will take time to mend.

Bridge

When your soul is empty the demons climb in.

Chorus

So sing this song to bring her back if only for moment.

There is no harm in remembering if it helps you to forget.

For my friend Alan
