Written In The Stars

Cactoid Jim:

One summer day a cowboy strayed

way from his lonesome trail.

Where by a stream he spied his dream,

a cowgirl fair and pale.

The Red Plains Rider:

There in his eyes she heard the sighs of crying steel guitars.

Sweet music swelled,

and then they fell

Both:

Twas written in the stars.

Cactoid Jim: 

The leaves turned brown and tumbled down

when lo their paths did twine 

“Since summer’s passed”

The Red Plains Rider:

The cowboy asked,

Cactoid Jim: 

“Does your heart beat as mine?”

The Red Plains Rider

“Alas,”

Cactoid Jim:

Said she,

The Red Plains Rider:

“There’ll never be

a love as true as ours”

Both: 

So take my hand, for it was planned 

Twas written in the stars.

The Red Plains Rider: 

Through hoary snow and wind did blow

their hearts knew not the storm.

Hand in hand cross wintered land,

twas true love kept them warm.

Both:

In sooth it seemed they lived a dream

and wiled away the hours 

It wasn’t chance nor happenstance,

twas written in the stars.

There by that stream where all is green

there stands a tall oak tree.

They carved a heart into the bark for all eternity.

Fate sends a sign when Earth aligns

with Jupiter and Mars,

Beyond our mortal soul’s control,

it’s written in the stars.

Our story ends,

but fear not friends,

romance forever flowers.

Young lover’s eyes gaze to the skies,

it’s written in the stars.

It’s written in the stars
