Hey Jim's dead and gone
left me here to sing his song.
I've got the shamans muse.
I've got the shamans blues.
Once we believed our hip universal ideal
could challenge how you daily might feel
peace, love, musics high freedom vibe
would change the negative draining tide.
They say the pisces fish
swims both ways
due to contradictory nature.
Well man well
every mother son.
Halina remembers how two
four year old girls in ghetto
sang for their supper
but received nothing.
Have you ever had night when
you left your dull job late.
Attended rock an roll concert date
saw Lou Reed do his thing.
Friend fell into alcoholic maze
the kind who never ceases to amaze
leaving me with only words to say
sometimes man you gotta weather the storm.
beached we are all
upon the shores of life.
Anna is wearing dark gown
winters spells holding her down
swear the clocks stopped
hope my ears not blocked
Tonight I'm ringing the praises of Bob Dylan
revisiting again, listening to 'Have Mercy'
track called 'Ring Those Bells'.
Sounds even more profound today
