Glory Road

 

     I’ve always loved the stage and started my professional career at 14. Some people said, “Oh, you don’t want to do that – it’s such a hard life!” My parents always cheered me on, however, saying, “follow your dreams.”  They were right.  I also found out, sometimes it can be a hard life! 

     It has been a circuitous adventure.  Sometimes I’ve found “Cowgirl Jazz,” to be a rough ride and it requires a lot of courage to follow your dreams: your “Glory Road.”  Here is a song my Dad and I wrote together.

Glory Road -  by Cavett Robert and Lee Robert

“Gotta Have a Glory if you want to get along, A growin beaming glory that shines when all goes wrong.

Gotta have a Glory if you want to stay alive, A livin’ breathin’ Glory, that just won’t stay inside.

And we’re ridin’ down that Glory Road, home’s where the song is, so I’m told.

Though the day may be long and the night may be cold, we keep on ridin’ down, that Glory Road.

Gotta’ have a Glory, that opens up the heart, A persevering Glory that sets the brave a part.

Sing a song of Glory, that heeds your beck and call, a lovin’, laughin’ Glory, that you want to share with all.

And we’re ridin’ down that Glory Road, home’s where the song is, so I’m told.

Though the day may be long, and the night may be cold, We keep on ridin’ down, that Glory Road.”

    people aren't happy because they have everything. People are happy because they make the best of what they have. Cowgirl jazz makes the 3rd universe blossom into the 5th.
