SALUTE TO D G R (David Rose)

We all know about J F K

And Dallas classic Icon J.R.

BImageut here’s an Ode to my own bro

—The heaven-sent D.G.R.

 

Here in Tedxas everything’s bigger

From grand mansions to maxi-cars;

But no one’s found anything bigger

—–Than the Heart of D G R

 

Native born in scenic San Antonio

To great parents P A R and R A R

Everyone predicted even early on

—-Dave was our ‘rising star.”

 

He rose to Springfield, Missouri

He rose to Wisconsin too—

Churches all across America

Are blessed by what he can do.

 

He’s raised two beautiful daughters

Along with his darling wife Sue–

Third World churches owe him thanks

For what David sacrifically did do.

 

We sing Deep in the Heart of Texas

But now truthfully near and far—

There’s no heart more generous

—Than the Heart of D G R.

 

His soul is one born of benevolence

He’s the Lone Star State Shining Star;

There’s othing bigger here in Texas

—–Than the Heart of D G R.
