“Twenty Years Ago”, there was a young man, who everyone considered the “Coward of the County.” He was tired of his ill reputation and decided to strike out on his own. It was time for him to change his ways, for he was known as “The Gambler” too.
He headed West to start a new life. It was just him, his guitar, and a dog named Misty. He loved his dog, for even when it had felt like everyone was against him, he knew that she believed in him. “She always Believes in Me”, he thought. He found a little brick house up on a hill. Lots of land for Max to run, and on a summer’s night, he could sit out under the sky, playing his guitar to his audience of a million stars.
One bright day as he was taking a walk he met a young woman, walking her dog, Trixie. They talked as they walked, and had a nice time. In the weeks to come they met more often, he noticed that his heart would begin beating a little faster whenever she was near. He started taking walks more frequently with hopes to catch her eye. Her name was “Lucille”, and he thought she was quite the “Lady”!
After some time passed, he gathered up his courage, and asked her if they could be more than just “Daytime Friends”. She shyly smiled and accepted his invitation to dinner one night, and between them romance began to bloom.
Months had passed and he knew she was the one. They were strolling on the beach one night as the sun began to set. He stopped walking, knelt down, and said to her.”You and I” have seemed to hit it off from the start, Your “Love (has) Lifted Me”, “You Decorated My Life.” I would love to take you to “Islands in the Stream” will you please give me the “Greatest Gift of All”, by saying that you will be my wife?
Tears ran down her face as she wrapped her arms around him. “My parents always told me, “Don’t Fall in Love With a Dreamer”, but I want to share your dreams and make them mine.” She sealed her “Yes” with a passionate kiss and into the waves they ran.
