Half a year gone but forever and always a part of my life...
Shit, he got what he didn't deserve...a
Spanish conquistador with a big heart...
A Mexican peasant can still understand...
My baby brother had a moonshine sassy (far a....)
He showed its soul to a hot red chassie
My little sister is a straight-laced stitch
She gave it "a small part"
And then she "Belmont Pitt"
My "no shit" honey is on her own
In Baja, California,
With a money probe
Singin',
"Down, babydollar, baby,
  In remission,
  Put your foot down, honey,
   Mama, coy and bitchin'...
Um...anyway, not really.RIP
Could've used some better lyrics...the snake went jaco.
R...vayate

But you know, things add up...and although right now I'm free to split forever, in my heart, it could conceivably hold me up...at some point....and that is so, so sad...
Things...you know, "I need something for nothing, like pilgrims in the olden days..."

John's tribute to Tom Petty in the Indy Star 10.3.17, all i can say is, so eloquent, John!

"Tom Petty was the Edward Hopper of American songwriters," it begins. "He was a certain kind of bird that had no legs, so he could never land on this earth; he lived his whole life in the sky. And now he will spread his wings and sleep on the wind. His name is written in the stars. John Mellencamp."
