Playlist Of My Life - Poem by Joey Jones

My Life's Playlist

Johnny B Good in the cold Kentucky Rain
The Gambler riding that Long Black Train
Puff the Magic Dragon, Dream On Honalee
The Pinball Wizard, Me, and Bobby McGee

Changes and Jack and Diane's little ditty
Home Sweet Home down in Paradise City
Nothing but A Good Time Livin' on a Prayer
On The Edge of Seventeen with time to spare

Jesse's Girl, my Angel in a her short skirts,
Look Away, All Out of Love, Love Hurts
The Rose, now A Total Eclipse of the Heart
Standing in the Purple Rain love torn apart

Please Come to Boston Up Where We Belong
In The Air Tonight, Lady In Red its Your Song
Everything I Do I Do It For You, Can't We Try
Lost in Love, Me and Mrs. Jones, yeah She and I

With Arms Wide Open my Beautiful Boy I met
My Little Girl, Her Comes the Sun to never set
Three Times a Lady you still Take My Breath Away
Husbands and Wives, still Baby, I Love Your Way

To Busy Being In Love Cats and the Cradle shake
Last Dollar spent, Wave on Wave, just Feed Jake
Now on The Backside of Thirty The Bluesman creeps
Sitting in Margaritaville While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Let me Go Rest High on That Mountain, this I pray
When its over Turn the Page and let me Drift Away,
