The Newsomes were famous in their part of Texas,
As far as an income, they had well in excess,
For all their wealth, in their midst was an unknown treasure,

Married into their family was a man without measure.
Thank you Heath and Jake for showing us Ennis and Jack,  teaching us how much they loved one another.

For all their wealth, in their midst was an unknown treasure,
Married into their family was a man without measure.
Whose bounty of heart was fathomless.

Let's try this one...

Jack's music was sour in sound but in spirit sweet,

Jack's music was sour in sound but in spirit sweet,
He sang his heart out like a gentle doe in heat.

Heeding the song stood a stag in rut,

He sang his heart out like a gentle doe in heat.
Heeding the song stood a stag in rut,
 because He couldn't help but notice
the gentle doe's butt

Jack and Ennis, Ennis and Jack,
Jack loved Ennis, and Ennis loved back,
They never spoke the word,
But though unspoken, it was heard,
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Jack and Ennis, Ennis and Jack,
Jack loved Ennis, and Ennis loved back,
They never spoke the word,
But though unspoken, it was heard,
The fierce fire between them will never lack.


I had thought of

Even when Ennis gave Jack a wack.
