The Gambler and Lucille

Dedicated to Kenny Rogers (1938-2020) who died on March 20, 2020.

The Gambler and Lucille

Kenny had a God given talent and he was bound to succeed.
His death has pricked people like a thorn and they will bleed.
He was both a singer and an actor who had skill.
People loved to hear him sing The Gambler and Lucille.

The world is sad to lose Kenny.
He was a Leo just like me.
All of his fans are heart broken because of this ordeal.
People loved to hear him sing The Gambler and Lucille.

HI Randy....Great dedication to one of the great legends.  His songs will always live on.  I was sad to hear of his passing.  I liked it when he sang with Dolly Parton, that song, "Islands in the Stream."  Thank you for honoring him this way. xo ;)
