Treasure Island

John Shea

(1-28-50 / Cherry Point N.C.)


Where is there
But here is fear
What a way to live
Here I am there
Where I do not care.

Love is here
throw the rules out the window
There we go it was simple

Simple and lonely and here.

    simple and lonely and here.

    i don't think love is every lonely, but it likes to be alone sometimes.... and that's a good thing.
    i think you can find it hiding in the back country, making moonshine

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
