Dear Sun Spots: I read the wonderful story about the 9-year-old girl with Type 1 diabetes whose wish was granted through the Children’s Dream Factory of Maine. Could you please provide me with a phone number or e-mail address as my child has Type 1 diabetes also. – No Name, Minot.

Answer: Contact The Children’s Dream Factory of Maine, 400 U.S. Route 1, Falmouth, ME 04105, (207) 781-3406. Ask for Doris Simard or Skip Welch.

Dear Sun Spots: Thank you for all your help in the past. We are looking to find a place to haul tree stumps in this area. Thank you. – No Name, Lewiston.

Dear Sun Spots: I would like to know who would know the words to “Whiskey for My Men, Beer for My Horses”? This is by Willie Nelson and Toby Keith. Also, if I’m not asking too much I would like the words to “On The Road Again” also by Willie Nelson. I have some of the words but there is just a line I don’t really get. – A Steady Listener and Fan of Sun Journal.

Sun Spots located the following words by Toby Keith online at to your first request.

Beer For My Horses

Well a man come on the 6 o’clock news

Said somebody’s been shot, somebody’s been abused

Somebody blew up a building

Somebody stole a car

Somebody got away

Somebody didn’t get too far yeah

They didn’t get too far

Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day, son

A man had to answer for the wicked that he done

Take all the rope in Texas

Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys

Hang them high in the street for all the people to see that


Justice is the one thing you should always find

You got to saddle up your boys

You got to draw a hard line

When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune

We’ll all meet back at the local saloon

We’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces

Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds

We’ve got too much corruption, too much crime in the streets

It’s time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground

Send ’em all to their maker and he’ll settle ’em down

You can bet he’ll set ’em down ’cause, (Chorus)

And regarding your second request, the following are the words found at

On the Road Again

On the road again, just can’t wait to get on the road again

The life I love is makin’ music with my friends

And I can’t wait to get on the road again

On the road again, goin’ places that I’ve never been

Seein’ things that I may never see again,

And I can’t wait to get on the road again.

[CHORUS:]On the road again,

like a band of gypsies we go down the highway

We’re the best of friends,

Insisting that the world be turnin’ our way

And our way, is on is on the road again

Just can’t wait to get on the road again

The life I love is makin’ music with my friends

And I can’t wait to get on the road again.
