88 and Oil


Cattywumpus from the Cimarron River is Loyal
A place to take a afternoon drive in any season
But when it is time for Marion's 88th Birthday
It becomes a very special drive with a reason

A chance to drive the red dirt roads that lead
To Marion's farm where drilling oil is the plan
Then a quick stop at the Loyal hometown cafe
To sing Happy Birthday for a very special man

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
