Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

“Jonathan My best friend” – My best friend.You Ain’t Going Nowhere


“Jonathan My best friend” -You Ain’t Going Nowhere

Clouds so swift
Rain won’t lift

Gate won’t close
Railings froze
Get your mind off wintertime
You ain’t goin’ nowhere
Whoo-ee! Ride me high
Tomorrow’s the day
My bride’s gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair!I don’t care
How many letters they sent
Morning came and morning went
Pick up your money
And pack up your tent
You ain’t goin’ nowhere
Whoo-ee! Ride me high
Tomorrow’s the day
My bride’s gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair!

Buy me a flute
And a gun that shoots
Tailgates and substitutes
Strap yourself
To the tree with roots
You ain’t goin’ nowhere
Whoo-ee! Ride me high
Tomorrow’s the day
My bride’s gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair!

Genghis Khan
He could not keep
All his kings
Supplied with sleep
We’ll climb that hill no matter how steep
When we get up to it
Whoo-ee! Ride me high
Tomorrow’s the day
My bride’s gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair!

Fell to the Cutting Room Floor


Fell to the cutting room floor
Those outtakes
How we’d value them now

The Super 8 tapes
Stored in a garage somewhere
Where are they now

The past’s behind us?
How dare we make that mistake.
We carry it with us
It’s part of us now

We’re so modern
We’ve kept up to date
What a mistake

We’re part of our past
Can’t leave it behind
Nor should we try

Keep it alive, oh yes, keep it alive
It’s not nostalgia
It’s part of who w’ are

Yes we were young once
Surely that’s true
But the spirit within us
Is as young now as ever it was

Yes, yes we’re alive
The past, not dead to us,
Is alive, lives, in us now.
