The Ballad of Raymond Cane is my response to a dare from my writing partner, Earl Wallace. "Cane sugar," Earl said. "Something to do with cane sugar."
I remembered a cowboy song my Uncle Pat sang when I was in grade school. That was the day I found out that music can make you cry. With the spirits of Earl Wallace and Uncle Pat Moore looking over my shoulder, I set out to combine Earl's two-word prompt with my uncle's ability to put emotion into a story.
Here's the result--a cowboy song I never expected to write.
That is so SWEET! I felt like I was watching a Tarantino movie....!!
You look good in a cowboy hat in my imagination.
