“WE’RE THROWING SOME BLEACHERS UP OUT IN THE SUN…..”

i just got off the message board.
i loved that hippie ladies poem
and i sure didnt mean to scare the girl in colorado

they gave me drugs to kick drugs
and then i had to kick those drugs
no big deal

(so other than that mrs. lincoln…..how was the play?)

it wasnt that hard
all you gotta do is let them see you sweat.
and most of it i did on a plane with john prine
who helped me to see the humor in the situation

i’ve actually been doing well

sleeping and everything

yesterday was one of the best days on the road in awhile
we drove down highway sixty one…
which was a first for me.
we played dylans record as we drove.
the road has no signs ……….
its river and farmland…..
it made me wonder….
“do people really hate these people”
i doubt it.
i dont think this is the america that the rest of the world is sick of.
this road is what we are at our best
i think.

so I said…..
“i got forty red white and blue shoe strings
and a thousand telephones that will not ring
do you know where i can can get rid of these things?”

and louie the king said…
“let me think for a minute son,
yes i think it can be very easily done,
just take everything on down to highway 61″
