1. Evolution Blues: L. Puckett. a satirical song about Evolution inspired by Carl Sagan, famous scientist and author, based on a dream going back in space time and encountering extinct dinosaurs. (© 2010)

2. Gypsy Ball: L. Puckett. A romantic ballad with Flamenco guitar rhythm (Soleares) written by L. Puckett for Myra Puckett after their engagement in 1971. (© 2010)

4. Madonna of the Roses: Knox Henderson, L. Puckett. Lyrics were written by Knox in 1977. It was arranged and recorded by L. Puckett in 2002 several months before Knox's passing - it was his last song to finish after an illustrious writing career. It is a romantic ballad about a young lady, probably Myra Beasley Puckett, who was married to Knox until 197, and now to myself. We are all from Tyler, Texas (Rose Capital of the World). We met at Robin Hood's studio in Tyler before he and I wrote You Ain't Tuff in 1965. (©Sunnybrook Music, 1977)

4.Witches, Warlocks, Pentangles and Quarks: L. Puckett. A surrealistic parody on the interest in witchcraft (Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist), rising drug abuse, and my interest in Quantum Theory and High Energy Physics in the 1970's while in graduate school. (© 2010)

5. You Ain't Tuff: Knox Henderson, L. Puckett. According to musicologists and the box set Nuggets, '65-'68, one of the very earliest songs of the “punk rock” genre. Recorded at Robin Hood Studios, Tyler, TX, 1964. Robin Hood Brians, producer/engineer, Ronnie “Mouse” Weiss, guitar, Ken “Nardo” Murray, drums, and Dave Stanley, bass guitar, Lawrence Puckett, guitar, harmonica and vocals. Original released by Lawrence Puckett on RBE Records and re-released by Joe Stampley and the Uniques on Paula Records. It was on the KLIF (Dallas) Top Ten charts for several weeks, and was # 1 at one point. We had no concept of punk rock, we were trying to produce a hybrid of Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan, a type of put down song. (© Sunnybrook Music, 1965)

6. South Padre Lady: L. Puckett. A romantic ballad about a fictitious young lady who goes to Padre Island every summer and finally reincarnates and flies away as a Bird of Paradise with her lover in the Heavenly light. (©2010)

7. A Six Beer Song: L. Puckett. A Willy Nelson style song about a personal experience when I quit drinking cold turkey after an illness and when my songwriting declined, I resumed at a lesser level and the writing improved! (© 2010)

8. I Can't Drink Like I Used To: Nancy Rynders, L. Puckett. A country ballad about a young man who is persuaded by his girlfriend to limit his drinking because she will not let him drink anymore with his buddies in their single lifestyle. ( © 2010)

9. Starfighters: Randy Pigg, L. Puckett. Original lyrics were written by Randy in 1968 about an alien invasion. It was rewritten in 2005 by L. Puckett based on a modern War of the Worlds involving terrorists and aliens in a final battle for Earth. (© 2010)
10. International Harvesters of Men: Original lyrics written by Randy Pigg in 1970 about political aspects of the Viet Nam War. It was rewritten in 2005 by L. Puckett as a commentary on the War on Terror and worldwide recruitment by terrorist groups. It was arranged by maestro Miguel Antonio in Flamenco style (Tarantos) creating a Moorish prayer like mood. (© 2010)

11. You Can't Undo a Done: A ballad with lyrics inspired by my wonderful nurse, Kendra Gump, during my stay in the hospital in 2009. We both were thinking it would be a perfect song for Trace Adkins who is her family friend, now if he would only cover it!! ( ©, 2010)

12. Coyote Border Moon: A ballad based on a true story about Miguel Antonio , my Flamenco teacher,
and his wife and their struggle with INS during her attempts for legal citizenship involving a political
paradox and a surprising twist of events. (© 2010)

13. Trying So Hard Not To Care: K. Henderson, L. Puckett. The first four verses were written by Knox in 1966 as a romantic ballad and Viet Nam War era social protest song. It was revised in 2005 by L. Puckett as a commentary on 9/11 the War on Terror, The Culture War, and modern politics.
