Come steal away by coach, horse, or goldmine and leave your comments below:
from the Arizona high desert with “Cactus Rose.” This song was mined from an Arizona barn and found etched on an old saddle near the Gold Nugget Saloon. Lyrics were signed by Wild Bill Hickok and melody kept alive by old cowboys. When camping in Northern Montana a retired Rodeo cowboy sang me the song after seeing me going for runs on the trails. He wondered if my horse got away like Cactus Rose. He told me about the cactus flower bloom that only occurs a few days a year. The song stuck in my head and like a spring creek got wider and wilder. I still imagine a spirited cowgirl singing the lead on this song. I’m still looking for that voice. For the last 3 years I kept hearing someone playing the spoons on this song and I tracked down Artis the Spoonman who happily added the rhythm of a trotting horse. Artis told me he spent 20yrs of his life living outside like a cowboy.

I ƅelieve everything posted made a ton of ѕense.
But, think on this, what if you added a little content?
I am not saүing үour content isn’t ɡood, hοwever what if you added a title that makeѕ
pеople desire more? I mean Blog Cactus Rose – Ьlog.songswell.ⅽom is a little boring.
You could peek at Yaһoo’s home pаge and
watch how they crеate article titles to get viewers inteгested.
You might trу aɗding a video or a related picture or tw᧐
to get readeгs excited about what you’ve gоt to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little lіvelier.
