Cajun music fans are sad today ....

A Cajun great has passed away.

Belton Richard dead at seventy seven,

Now he's playing Cajun music in Heaven.

Have been a fan of his for years,

To think of him gone brings many tears.

A Louisiana boy, singer, musician, too,

His Cajun music chased away the blues.

Won many awards, brought many smiles,

He had many fans from across the miles.

He will be sorely missed for a long time;

his music was ageless, like a fine wine.

May God be with his family and friends,

And may they remember him to the end.

Rest in peace, Belton; may you fly high; 

May you play your music in the sky!
