THE WAY I RUN MY BLOG:

Years ago I worked at a porn shop. I dealt with every kind of kinky sexual perv imaginable in real life face to face. Dealing with those kind of people here is Child’s Play to handling them in real world. The only people that can relate are ones that have work in some type of adult entertainment that deals with the general public. In every sexual preferences male or female young or old, you have one smart ass in the bunch.

Here you can just block and be done with it. It’s like swatting a gnat. Dealing with them in the real world is a whole different experience. When they walk in that door and you don’t know them you never know what to expect. They can end up being one of your best customers or one that finally hits a nerve, and you finally tell them to GET THE FUCK OUT! I didn’t care I was always ready if it got confrontational when someone didn’t know how to behave or pestering other customers.

If you’re worthy of respect you’ll get my undivided attention with that respect. If I don’t see you that way I’m not going to waste my time with you. If I like you I’ll tell you and why either in the reply back or by personal email.

Even though this isn’t a porn shop my blog is my Personal Porn World. I take care of my world the way I please. As long as I’m not breaking any rules set by AdultFriendFinder I’ll Keep On Truckin’ just like I have been. If I do break a rule they’ll deal with me. I don’t mean any disrespect, I’m just being upfront about everything.

THOUGHTS-VENTURES-TUNES-SEX was a way of life at that porn shop. It’s my way of life for my online enjoyment.

If I debate politics I do in real life with someone. If I make a political posting it will be a read only. Why? We don’t know each other well enough to get into those type of specific issues. We share more common interest in better things than a political debate online. My political postings are more intended for the open general public. Anything else I don’t mind you sharing your opinion. Positive or Negative as long as they’re constructive and friendly. If you’re Cool with that I know I am. My time here is for sharing common interests with other members. Peace and Love, Michael

"Gotta Serve Somebody" is a song by Bob Dylan from his 1979 studio album Slow Train Coming. It won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Male in 1979. The song was recorded in May of that year at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Sheffield, Alabama. It stands as Dylan's latest hit single, peaking at #24 on the Billboard Magazine Hot 100 singles chart. The b-side, "Trouble in Mind" was a Dylan original that was recorded for "Gotta Serve Somebody" 's parent album but was ultimately left off it.
As of 2015 the song still enjoys airplay, and has been covered by Mavis Staples, Etta James, Willie Nelson and various blues musicians including Tommy Castro.
The song was featured in the movie The Ultimate Gift, in an episode of "The Sopranos". and most recently in an episode of "Billions.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS AND FRITO PIE
Posted:Sep 22, 2017 3:34 am
Last Updated:Sep 22, 2017 4:36 am
286 Views


Well you just can’t say Friday Night Lights here in West Texas Southeast New Mexico and not think of the Odessa Permian Panthers of Odessa, TX. GO MOJO!

Permian High School is a public high school located in Odessa, Texas and is one of three high schools in the Ector County Independent School District. It was the subject of the book Friday Night Lights which in turn inspired a movie and TV series of the same name.

Opened in 1959, Permian High is named for the Permian Basin, the geological formation which underlies Midland and Odessa. The name stems from the age of the rocks in the basin where the school is located, which are from the geological period that preceded the largest mass extinction in the history of life. The Permian Basin is the source of the large oil and natural gas deposits that drive the region's economy. Permian High began adding freshmen to the campus during the 2015-2016 school year. This began creating more additions to the campus as well as a bigger influx of students.

High school football has long been extremely popular in Texas. The story of Permian High School's 1988 Permian Panthers team and its run towards the state championship was the subject of the best-selling book Friday Night Lights, published in 1990. A movie based on the book was made in 2004 and the NBC television network airs a TV series loosely based on the school and book. Roy Williams, formerly of the Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, and Chicago Bears, went to school at Permian and portrayed an assistant coach for Midland Lee in the movie.

The team, whose rallying cry is "Mojo", won the Texas state championship in the 4A classification (the state's largest until 1980) in 1965 and 1972 and the 5A classification in 1980, 1984 (a co-championship with French High School, located in Beaumont, Texas the last time that a football co-championship was awarded by the UIL; it would later adopt NCAA overtime rules), 1989 and 1991. Permian was selected by National Sports News Service as the High School Football National co-Champions in 1972 and 1989.
"Mojo" is supposed to have originated in 1967. When a group of Permian alumni met the team in Abilene Cooper for the game between the Panthers and Cougars, they started chanting "Go Joe" for one of the Permian players. Other fans misheard this as "Mojo"
Permian plays its home football games at Ratliff Stadium.
Permian's arch rivals are the Odessa Bronchos and the Midland Lee Rebels.

NOW TO THE FRITO PIE

The Texas traditions of high school football & Frito Pie are inexorably linked. Learn more about the portable chili snack that’s a Lone Star favorite.
Fall in Texas is a special time of year. It brings with it respite from the relentless heat of the summer, the promise of homecoming and over the top mums, but most importantly, fall in Texas means football. And high school football, traditionally played on Friday nights, means Frito Pie is back.

As with other great Texas food traditions like Chicken Fried Steak, the precise and exact origins of Frito Pie are unknown, lost to the ages like sparks escaping from a campfire in the West Texas desert. If you’re not familiar with Fritos, they’re little rectangular strips of corn chip, and as the name of the dish suggests, they’re a non negotiable ingredient. The rest of Frito Pie has little to nothing to do with actual pie, be it sweet or savory. A bag of Fritos is cut open, chili is ladled on top, and a healthy dose of cheese crowns the dish- and that’s all there is to it. Sour cream, onions, hot sauce and jalapenos are all optional extras.

Given this, I don’t think it’s a stretch to assume that Frito Pie was invented out of convenience – both for the ease of a handheld, self contained meal, and the simple assembly of a warm dish as the weather turns cool, which requires nothing more than scooping the State Dish of Texas out of a crockpot, into a waiting bag. Just make sure your don’t put any beans in your chili – that’s considered treason in this state.
It’s cheap, comforting and uniquely Texan, and it’ll keep you warm as you sit in the cold bleachers and root for the home team. And I’m pretty sure Riggins would have eaten at least one after the game…

Walking taco. Texas straw hat. Stomach grenade. It goes by many names but only one that matters: Frito pie. Cheap, hearty, and pretty darn bad for you, Lol this humble fare, with its bold chili, crunchy corn chips, silken cheese, and bracing onion, is typically found at high school football games and state fairs. But as soon as the recipe started to appear in grocery store promotional campaigns in the fifties—to be prepared with Fritos-brand chili—it didn’t take long for home cooks like June Cleaver to figure out that this was the stuff of which easy dinners were made.
The origins of the dish are unknown. C. E. Doolin may have invented the Frito (in 1932), but not the pie. He in fact eschewed meat and salt and probably would not have touched this concoction with a ten-foot spork. Some give the nod to his mother, Daisy Dean Doolin, a name clearly destined for greatness. A five-and-dime in Santa Fe lays claim to it. And countless sincere souls insist it was dreamed up by their “pawpaw.”
Most likely the idea for this happy union of chuck-wagon grub and Mexican street food occurred independently to a number of folks. Since then it’s been fancified (duck chili and goat cheese), bastardized (witness the “apple hash and pumpkin gravy Fritos pie” at fritospieremix.com), and improvised (let us hail the 7-Eleven Frito pie, in which an expeditious meal is made with a pocketknife and a furtive run on the hot dog condiments). But like the Frito itself, there’s no better version than the classic.
1 SERVING USING A SMALL FRITOS BAG

Serves 1
1 two ounce bag of original Fritos
Pot of chili, homemade or canned
(I am loath to endorse any sort of canned meat product, but Texans swear by Wolf Brand.)
Grated cheddar cheese
Diced white onion
Take a knife or some scissors and split the bag down the front.
Ladle in a scoop of chili.
Top with a mound of cheese and a heap of onion. Festoon your creation to your heart’s content (sour cream, jalapeños, avocado,
and so on), though
expect to be chastised by purists.
Eat it straight out of the bag, preferably atop a thick pile of paper napkins.
I highly recommend this for the guys for Sunday Football games. It’s tasty easy to fix, and great for guests that may come over to watch the game. As for the chili if you have a favorite one handed down use that one, or as it was suggested Wolf can chili can work. Instead of cheddar cheese, I prefer the Colby Longhorn. I’ve used the Wolf can chili before and it works. For my chili meat I use Morton’s chili blend it’s very simple to use just follow the directions on the package. If you can’t find the Morton’s chili blend at your grocer you can find it online. I personally just like the fritos, chili, cheese and onion. Of course you and add the extras to your tasting. In one photo is what I ate for lunch and my leftover chili meat each bag contains 2 cups ready for the freezer for next time. In the photo’s since I do use professional ones to save time, mine can be identified by my little pipe as my trademark for my photos. Happy Eating!

The Truth About Pecos Cantaloupes
Posted:Sep 20, 2017 3:51 pm
Last Updated:Sep 22, 2017 3:21 am
387 Views

For decades, a huge swath of potassium-rich soil just west of Pecos produced what many Texans swore were the sweetest and best cantaloupes in the world. But over the past few years, the number of Pecos cantaloupes available in Texas grocery stores has declined drastically, and there have been rumors that those for sale are not really from Pecos at all, but from the nearby town of Coyanosa.
This spring, I went to Pecos to see what made the melons so good, where they are really from, and what has caused annual plantings to plummet from a peak of roughly 1,800 acres in the early 1990s to about 100 acres today. I talked to a dozen active and retired cantaloupe farmers and agricultural extension specialists, and I learned that the traditional Pecos cantaloupe has a small seed cavity and a corresponding abundance of orange flesh. The flesh’s peculiar sweetness is created by a combination of the potassium in the soil in which the cantaloupes are grown and the long hours of dry sunshine that nourishes them, abetted by the magnesium and calcium salts in the water with which they are irrigated.
Roland Roberts, a retired High Plains vegetable specialist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, says potassium favors the accumulation of sugars in the melons, and the salinity of the water prevents them from absorbing too much moisture, which would blunt the sweetness.
As veteran Pecos cantaloupe grower Roger Jones says, “The saltier the water, the sweeter the melon.” Jones, who planted 100 acres of cantaloupes this year, said he is the last person in Pecos growing cantaloupes commercially, the last link in a tradition that is nearly a century old. The 69-year-old Jones moved to Pecos from Mercedes in 1979 and says he is “the oldest continual farmer in Pecos.”
Over the years, he has grown cotton, onions, cabbage and honeydew melons and even harvested four-wing saltbush seed from a plant that provides erosion control. Jones says, however, he never could have made a living farming without teaching auto mechanics at Pecos High School for the past 30 years, a job he still holds. He’s selling this summer’s cantaloupe crop to chain stores statewide, including Wal-Mart, H-E-B and individual distributors. But most Pecos cantaloupes, Jones confirms, don’t come from Pecos: They’re grown near Coyanosa, about 30 miles southeast of Pecos.


Chillin’ on the Train
The railroad first made Pecos cantaloupes famous. Madison Lafayette Todd, better known as M.L. Todd, came to Pecos from New Mexico in 1916 and bought an interest in an irrigated farm, where he and a partner, D.T. McKee, planted cantaloupes with seed from Rocky Ford, Colorado. They contracted with the dining-car service of the Texas and Pacific Railroad, which ran through Pecos, to buy their crop. The T&P listed the cantaloupes as “Pecos cantaloupes” on its breakfast menus, and dining-car stewards provided satisfied diners with chilled cantaloupes and Todd’s address. By the 1920s, Todd was shipping cases of Pecos cantaloupes all over the country by Railway Express.
Ray Thompson, Todd’s grandson, remembers that in those days, the train stopped in Pecos for just 20 minutes. During the shipping season, there was always a mad rush from the packing shed to the railroad station, with every available hand climbing on trucks already loaded with wooden cases of cantaloupes to get them into the express car before the train pulled out. Some customers ordered a case a week through summer. By the late 1940s, Todd had 240 acres planted in cantaloupes and was shipping 40,000 crates a year to customers in 42 states. Meanwhile, other growers had appeared on the scene.


Expensive To Grow
Cantaloupes, which are picked by hand and processed by hand in the packing shed, are a labor-intensive crop. The melon pickers and packers in Pecos were migrant workers, many from Mexico. Hope Wilson, who with her husband grew cotton as well as cantaloupes in Pecos in the 1950s, said at the height of the picking season, they had 1,500 migrant workers on their payroll.
Sally Williams Perry, whose father, Jack Williams, raised “Famous Pecos Cantaloupes,” recalled that on Saturdays in the ’50s, Pecos was teeming with people, including migrant workers who had come into town to shop before heading back to farms.
By the 1970s, there were five companies growing cantaloupes in Pecos, each with its own packing shed, and they shipped their melons by truck instead of train. The largest grower was the Pecos Cantaloupe Company, owned by A.B. Foster, who had first come to Pecos as an accountant for Billy Sol Estes’ cotton farming and fertilizer business. In 1990, Foster had 1,000 acres planted in cantaloupes and raised 10 different varieties, each of which ripened at a different time of summer. “But varieties had nothing to do with the taste,” said Randy Taylor, who bought the company. “The flavor was in the soil.”
All of the packers marked each cantaloupe with stickers denoting them as from Pecos.


No Way To Make a Profit
In the mid-’90s, however, the Pecos cantaloupe industry began to fall apart. The problems started as early as 1964 when the federal government ended the bracero program: an agreement originally made between the U.S. and Mexican governments in 1942 to bring contract workers from across the border into the U.S. to meet labor shortages created by World War II.
Migrant workers from the Lower Rio Grande Valley replaced the braceros, but their wages were higher than the 60 cents an hour paid to the braceros, and the migrant workers’ pay continued to rise through the 1970s and ’80s. Then, on top of those higher labor costs, farmers saw the water table start to fall and the price of natural gas begin to rise.
In the late 1950s, natural gas was piped to Pecos, fueling farmers’ water pumps. But the price of natural gas rose from 8 cents per 1,000 cubic feet to 30 cents. By 1989, it was 70 cents, and by 2006, when most of the growers had given up, it was $7 per 1,000 cubic feet.
Hybrid seed cost also escalated. Field Yow, Foster’s son-in-law, remembered that in 1977, seed cost about $6 per acre; by the time he got out of the business in 1997, it cost about $100 per acre. Wilson said she and her husband quit growing cantaloupes when they realized that each crate they sold for $18 was costing them $35 to produce.
By 1995, it was clear there was no way to make a profit growing cantaloupes in Pecos. The expenses were just too high.


Moving to Coyanosa
That’s when the Pecos cantaloupe industry moved to Coyanosa. The four Mandujano brothers, Tony, Armando, Junior and Beto, had actually started growing cantaloupes there in 1982. Tony Mandujano said that the first year, they planted half an acre. But that half-acre happened to be part of a patch of potassium-rich soil almost identical in composition to what it is in Pecos. In 1997, they incorporated as Mandujano Brothers Produce, a diversified farming company that now has 6,000 acres of watermelons, onions, cotton, hay, peppers, pumpkins and cantaloupes. They use migrant labor obtained through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s H-2A program, which allows nonimmigrant foreign workers into the country on visas to perform agricultural work for employers who anticipate a shortage of domestic labor.
The Mandujano brothers keep costs down with mechanization. They use a tractor-pulled vacuum-air planter—which plants one seed in each hole drilled—and a conveyor belt that carries melons from the field to the truck, although human hands still put the cantaloupes on the belt.
The brothers have also cut out middle management. “We are four brothers,” Tony Mandujano said. “And we are our own managers.” This year, the brothers planted 300 acres in cantaloupes, about 90 percent of which now, this summer, is being sold in Texas to grocery stores statewide such as Fiesta Foods, H-E-B, Kroger and Wal-Mart, and to roadside vendors.
Because Coyanosa is in Pecos County (Pecos itself is in Reeves County), each melon receives a sticker bearing a map of Texas crowned with a Stetson hat and the all-important label: “Pecos Fresh.” The shipping process can last two to three months, Tony Mandujano says, but once the cantaloupes are in stores, you’d better act fast: Their shelf life is seven to 10 days.
But that’s not the end of the story. The Mandujano brothers’ biggest competitors are in California, where 40,000 acres were planted in cantaloupes in 2010. “California cantaloupes are half the price of our cantaloupes,” Tony Mandujano said, “but they are only half as good. People who buy them are confused.”
But they may represent the future. Juan Anciso, a Texas AgriLife Extension Service vegetable specialist for the Rio Grande Valley and a cantaloupe expert, said most of the cantaloupes in Texas grocery stores from June to December come from California and Arizona; from January to May, they come from Honduras and Guatemala. So if you want Texas cantaloupes (they’re typically available in July and August), look for that Pecos label, even if the cantaloupe it’s on isn’t exactly from Pecos.
--------------------
Writer and historian Lonn Taylor lives in Fort Davis.

If you’ve never tasted a Pecos Cantaloupe you are missing a melon taste like no other. If you love cantaloupes and vanilla ice cream then put them together. Cut a cantaloupe in half the with vine tail end on the right or left of you. Cut in half. Clean out the seeds and fill the crater left with vanilla ice cream. That’s all you have to do and enjoy.

The images are of the industry real exciting Huh!!!

I love Survivor and a big fan of Boston Rob and Amber. When I first saw Amber on the Australian Outback I have to say I was taken by her cute looks. On Survivor Marquesas I had to admire Boston Rob's for being the Sly Guy he is.

Robert Carlo Mariano (born December 25, 1975), known by the nickname Boston Rob, is an American television personality, widely known for appearing in several reality shows, including Survivor, and The Amazing Race with his wife, Amber (Brkich) Mariano. In 2011, he won Survivor: Redemption Island and the $1,000,000 prize in his fourth appearance on Survivor.

Mariano was born in Hyde Park, Massachusetts, and raised in Canton, Massachusetts. He graduated Xaverian Brothers High School from 1996, where he played golf, softball, and hockey. In 1999, Mariano graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Boston University and began serving as the head coach of their inline hockey team. At the time he first played Survivor in 2001, he was a 25-year-old who was continuing to coach the hockey team. Mariano is a well known fan of the Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, and the New England Patriots.

Amber Joy Brkich; born August 11, 1978 is an American television personality and winner of Survivor: All-Stars with its $1,000,000 prize, after appearing as a contestant on one of its predecessors, Survivor: The Australian Outback.

Born in the Pittsburgh suburb of Beaver, Pennsylvania, Amber Brkich went to Beaver Area High School. She is a graduate of Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, north of Pittsburgh, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in public relations, with a minor in speech communications, in 2000. She is a member of Alpha Gamma Delta Alumni having served as vice president and new member coordinator while still in school. She is of Croatian descent.
She began a relationship with fellow reality star Rob Mariano in 2003, when they formed an alliance as castmates on Survivor: All-Stars. They became engaged on May 9, 2004, during the show's live finale at Madison Square Garden in New York City, and married on April 16, 2005 at Atlantis Paradise Island in The Bahamas. CBS aired a two-hour special about the wedding, entitled Rob and Amber Get Married, on May 24, 2005. After their marriage, the couple moved to Pensacola, Florida.

TANYA TUCKER

Tanya Denise Tucker (born October 10, 1958, in Seminole, Texas) is an American country music artist who had her first hit, "Delta Dawn", in 1972 at the age of 13. Over the succeeding decades, Tucker became one of the few child performers to mature into adulthood without losing her audience, and during the course of her career, she notched a streak of top-10 and top-40 hits. She has had several successful albums, several Country Music Association award nominations, and hit songs such as 1973's What's Your Mama's Name? and Blood Red and Goin' Down, 1975's Lizzie and the Rainman, and 1988's Strong Enough to Bend.

Tucker was the youngest of four children born to Jesse "Beau" and Juanita Tucker. Her father was a heavy equipment operator, and the family moved often as he sought better work. Tanya's early childhood was spent primarily in Willcox, Arizona, where the only radio station in town, KHIL, played country music. The Tuckers attended concerts of country stars such as Ernest Tubb and Mel Tillis, and Tanya's sister LaCosta was praised in the family for her vocal abilities. At the age of eight, Tanya told her father that she also wanted to be a country singer when she grew up.
When the Tuckers moved to St. George, Utah, Juanita took Tanya to audition for the film Jeremiah Johnson. Tanya did not win the bigger role for which she tried out, but she was hired as a bit player. About this time, she also got one of her first musical breaks, when her father drove the family to Phoenix for the Arizona State Fair, on the chance that the featured performer, country singer Judy Lynn, could use Tanya in her show. Tanya sang for the fair's entertainment managers, and she was engaged to sing at the fair itself.

Tucker made her debut with Mel Tillis, who was so impressed by her talent that he invited her onstage to perform. In 1969, the family moved to Las Vegas, where she regularly performed. Eventually, she recorded a demonstration tape that gained the attention of songwriter Dolores Fuller, who sent it to producer Billy Sherrill, the head of artists and repertoire at CBS Records. Sherrill was impressed with the demo tape and signed the teenaged vocalist to Columbia Records.

Sherrill initially planned to have Tucker record The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA, she chose Delta Dawn — a song she had heard Bette Midler sing on The Tonight Show — instead as her first single, while Donna Fargo the writer of The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA released her own song as a single. Released in the spring of 1972, the song became a hit, peaking at number six on the country charts and scraping the bottom of the pop charts. At first, Columbia Records tried to downplay Tucker's age, but soon word leaked out and she became a sensation. A year later, Australian singer Helen Reddy scored a number-one U.S. pop hit with her version of Delta Dawn.
"I thank the lucky stars and the Good Lord for that song, Tucker told Nine-O-One Network Magazine in 1988. If I cut it now for the first time I think it would be a hit. I was fortunate to have latched onto that one, and that was all Sherrill's doing. If it hadn't been for Sherrill, I probably would have been a rodeo queen or something.
Her second single, Love's the Answer, also became a top-10 hit later in 1972. Tucker's third single, What's Your Mama's Name, became her first number-one hit in the spring of 1973. Two other number ones — Blood Red and Goin' Down and Would You Lay with Me In a Field of Stone followed, establishing Tucker as a major star.

In 1975, she signed with MCA Records, where she had a string of hit singles that ran into the late 1970s.
Among these hits was Lizzie and the Rainman, which became a number-one country hit and also became Tucker's only top-40 pop music hit, peaking at number 37. It also peaked among the top 10 on the adult contemporary charts at the time. Tucker has a string of top-10 country hits under MCA between 1975 and 1978, including San Antonio Stroll, Here's Some Love, and It's a Cowboy Lovin' Night.
In 1978, she decided to radically change her image and cross over to rock with her TNT album. Despite the controversy over the record and it’s sexy cover, it went gold the following year.
The two hit singles from the album were I'm a Singer, You're the Song, and Texas When I Die. The latter was the bigger hit by far. It reached number five on the country charts, and it's flip side Not Fade Away, a Buddy Holly cover, peaked at number 70 on the hot 100 pop charts.

Texas When I Die is a song co-written and originally recorded by American country music artist Ed Bruce. Bruce's version peaked at number 52 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1977.
The song was covered by American country music artist Tanya Tucker. It was released in November 1978 as the first single from her album TNT. Tucker's version reached number 5 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.

TEXAS WHEN I DIE

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

New York couldn't hold my attention
Detroit City couldn't sing my song
If tomorrow finds me busted flat in Dallas
I won't care, 'cause at least I'll know I'm home.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

I'd ride through all of Hell and half of Texas
Just to hear Willie Nelson sing a country song
Beer just ain't as cold in old Milwaukee
My body's here, but my soul's in San Antone.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

Pecos Promenade was on the Soundtrack to Smokey and the Bandit II in 1980.

PECOS PROMENADE

If you've got a road map of Texas
You can see that it's a wide open state
From Amarillo down to Beaumont
You can bet that it's a honky-tonky place

They might like to rock 'n roll in Dallas
Or disco down on Galveston Bay
But when God made them West Texas cowboys
He gave them the Pecos Promenade

Lead off with the Cotton-Eyed Joe
Buckin' winged, and heel and toe
Hold me close for the Pecos Promenade
Big sign hangin' by the door
Sawdust on an old dance floor
Tip your hat for the Pecos Promenade

When the sun starts goin' down on the prairie
And the starlight, falls on the state
That's when this cowgirl needs me a cowboy
To do the Pecos Promenade

Tonight's the first I saw him
We can hear those twin fiddles play
Well Houston starts to feel like Lonestar heaven
As we dance the Pecos Promenade

Lead off with the Cotton-Eyed Joe
Buckin' winged, and heel and toe
Hold me close for the Pecos Promenade
Tip your hat for the Pecos Promenade

That's when this cowgirl needs a cowboy
To do the Pecos Promenade

THREE DOG NIGHT

Three Dog Night is an American rock band. They formed in 1967 with a line-up consisting of vocalists Danny Hutton, Cory Wells, and Chuck Negron. This lineup was soon augmented by Jimmy Greenspoon (keyboards), Joe Schermie (bass), Michael Allsup (guitar), and Floyd Sneed (drums). The band registered 21 Billboard Top 40 hits (with three hitting number one) between 1969 and 1975. It helped introduce mainstream audiences to the work of many songwriters, including Paul Williams An Old Fashioned Love Song, Hoyt Axton Joy to the World, Laura Nyro Eli's Comin', Harry Nilsson One, Randy Newman Mama Told Me Not to Come, and Leo Sayer The Show Must Go On.

The official commentary included in the CD set Celebrate: The Three Dog Night Story, 1964–1975 states that vocalist Danny Hutton's girlfriend, actress June Fairchild (best known as the "Ajax Lady" from the Cheech and Chong movie Up In Smoke) suggested the name after reading a magazine article about indigenous Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground while embracing a dingo (wild dog). On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs and, if the night was freezing, it was a "three dog night".

OUT IN THE COUNTRY

Whenever I need to leave it all behind
Or feel the need to get away
I find a quiet place, far from the human race
Out in the country

Before the breathin' air is gone
Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime
Out where the rivers like to run
I stand alone and take back somethin' worth rememberin'

Whenever I feel them closing in on me
Or need a bit of room to move
When life becomes too fast, I find relief at last
Out in the country

Before the breathin' air is gone
Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime
Out where the rivers like to run
I stand alone and take back somethin' worth rememberin'

Before the breathin' air is gone
Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime
Out where the rivers like to run
I stand alone and take back somethin' worth rememberin'

Before the breathin' air is gone
Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime
Out where the rivers like to run
I stand alone and take back somethin' worth rememberin'

Before the breathin' air is gone
Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime

AN OLD FASHIONED LOVE SONG

Just an old-fashioned love song
Playin' on the radio
And wrapped around the music
Is the sound of someone promising they'll never go
You swear you've heard it before
As it slowly rambles on
No need in bringing 'em back
'Cause they're never really gone

Just an old-fashioned love song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin' down in three-part harmony

To weave our dreams upon and listen
To each evening when the lights are low
To underscore our love affair with tenderness and feelings
That we've come to know
You swear you've heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on
No need in bringing 'em back
'Cause they're never really gone

Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin' down in three-part harmony
Just an old-fashioned love song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin' down in three-part harmony
Just an old-fashioned love song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me

To weave our dreams upon and listen to a song

Just an old song, comin' down
Just an old song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old song, comin' down
Just an old song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me

Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin' down in three-part harmony
Just an old-fashioned love song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me

Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin' down in three-part harmony
Just an old-fashioned love song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me

THE FAMILY OF MAN

This tired city was somebody's dream
Billboard horizons as black as they seem
A four-level highway across the land
We're building a home for the family of man

Prices are rising, the devil's to pay
Moving the mountain that got in the way
Prayer books and meetings to find a plan
Deciding the fate of the family of man

So hard
Whatever are we coming to?
Yes, it's so hard
With so little time and so much to do

Memories replacing the loves that we lost
Burning our bridges as soon as they're crossed
Factories built where the rivers ran
Time's running out for the family of man

So hard

So hard
So hard
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
