      That is a shame. RIP sir.

      Dear Abby, Dear Abby,
      Well I never thought
      That me and my girlfriend would ever get caught
      We were sitting in the back seat just shooting the breeze
      With her hair up in curlers and her pants to her knees.
      Signed, Just Married.

        An incredible storyteller with his music.

        There's a rainbow of babies
        Draped over the graveyard
        Where all the dead sailors
        Wait for their brides
        And the cold bitter snow
        Has strangled each grassblade
        Where the salt from their tears
        Washed out with the tide

            That must be at least 40 years ago.

                John Prine and Steve Goodman were close friends.
                Goodman was another incredible singer/songwriter:
                City of New Orleans (Arlo Guthrie)
                You Never Even Called Me By My Name (David Allen Coe)
                California Promises, Banana Republics and This Hotel Room (for you Buffett fans, Goodman was a Coral Reefer for a while)

                Here they are together ... (and now together again :)

                Broken hearts and dirty windows
                Make life difficult to see
                That's why last night and this mornin'
                Always look the same to me

                I bought my first Prine album in 1972 during my hippie days and still listen today but I regret that I never saw him live.
                If you haven't heard of Guy Clark, give him a listen. He was a legendary songwriter that passed about 4 years ago.

                  Oh hell yes... Home Grown Tomatoes, Dublin Blues, LA Freeway...
                  Desperados Waiting for a Train is a killer song.

                  And here we are... bringing this full circle.
                  John Prine ... singing a Guy Clark song!
                  (a duet with one of the sweetest voices ever... Emmylou)

                    Been in love with Emmy Lou for over 30 years. The Queen of melancholy

                    A movie is about to come out on the Life of Guy Clark "Without Getting Killed or Caught" The clips I've seen are dynamite

                      cannot wait to see that.

                      in Ken Burns Country Music documentary she recalls her “religious conversion” to country music.
                      I have such a crush on her that I hardly heard what she said so I had to rewind it. It’s a great story with her and Gram Parsons.

                        Parson's is another boss. He was from Winter Haven and grew up there and in Georgia. Too soon gone

                          One of my top 10 all time favorites. I heard a long radio interview with the story that article was based on and bizarre is the only word to describe it.
