Lord, I reckon I'm not much just by myself,
I fail to do a lot of things I ought to do.
But Lord, when trails are steep and passes high,
Help me ride it straight the whole way through.

And when in the falling dusk I get that final call,
I do not care how many flowers they send.
Above all else, the happiest trail would be
For YOU to say to me, "Let's ride, My Friend"


In lieu of flowers, the family asks for a donation to St. Judes Children's Hospital.
