Back in the Saddle Again

Years pass.

All fades to shades of what once was and now is nothing but a distant memory. Now, I am thinking back to college and the friends I knew. The times were good because all was new.

 

I’ve been wondering if you wondered where I’ve been. Well, I’ve been here and there, mostly there, but now I am back, back in the saddle again.

Back in the saddle

I don’t suppose I have much new to add.

Just remember, no matter how much time passes between our meetings, no matter what takes place in the meantime, some things we can never assign to the trashcan, memories are like embers in the fireplace, and there is always a spark to rekindle the flame.

But I will leave you with Gene Autry’s lyrics from Back in the Saddle Again. Take from them what you will. Better yet, add something to the pot, like passing travelers did on the trail.

I`m back in the saddle again
Out where a friend is a friend
Where the longhorn cattle feed
On the lowly gypsum weed
Back in the saddle again

Ridin` the range once more
Totin` my old .44
Where you sleep out every night
And the only law is right
Back in the saddle again

Whoopi-ty-aye-oh
Rockin` to and fro
Back in the saddle again
Whoopi-ty-aye-yay
I go my way
Back in the saddle again

I`m back in the saddle again
Out where a friend is a friend
Where the longhorn cattle feed
On the lowly gypsum weed
Back in the saddle again

Ridin` the range once more
Totin` my old .44
Where you sleep out every night
And the only law is right
Back in the saddle again

Whoopi-ty-aye-oh

Rockin` to and fro

Back in the saddle again

Whoopi-ty-aye-yay

I go my way

Back in the saddle again
