An ode to Glen 

Sad news recently about Glen Campbell. His songs take me back to my youth. 

An ode to Glen 

A silky voice, an echo from yester-year

Another star lost, sadness and tears

A country singer, famed for ‘Galveston’

Numerous hits, many number ones

‘Linesman for the county’, a classic lyric

‘Wichita Linesman’, a song that’s idyllic

Since ‘Gentle on my mind’, forty years have past

A wonderful song, outstanding, just class

Robbed of his talents, far too soon

All that’s left, recordings of his tunes

Glen’s looking down, smiling with joy

He’s here then gone, the ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’
