    Ever since I was a young boy
    I've played the silver ball
    From Soho down to Brighton
    I must have played 'em all
    But I ain't seen nothing like him
    In any amusement hall
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid
    Sure plays a mean pinball

    Do you work all night and sleep all day?

    I was trying to catch your eyes
    Thought that you was trying to hide
    I was swallowing my pain

    Funny I just heard Walk On today from Neil’s album On The Beach and the one line stood out as I watched some old guy rummaging through recycling bins for empties.
    Some get stoned, some get strange
    Sooner or later it all gets real
    Walk on.
    (Actually thought it was some get strong, thanks google.)

    There's room at the top they're telling you still
    But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
    If you want to be like the folks on the hill
    A working class hero is something to be

    god said to abraham, "kill me a son."
    abe said, "man, you must be putting me on!"
    god said, "no."
    abe said, "what?"
    god said, "you can do what you want, abe, but,
    the next time you see me coming
    you better run."
    abe said, '"where you want this killing done?"
    god said, "out on highway 61."

    Awesome, awesome, awesome lyrics.

    I still argue that Bob Dylan was the best poet America ever produced.

    I can't stand Dylan's voice but damn he was a great lyricist.

    Here lies the body of Mary Lee;
    She died at the age of one hundred and three.
    For fifteen years she kept her virginity;
    Not a bad record for this vicinity.

    I was just playing this this morning...not out of any intent. Just picked up that new Rockerbox and the tone seemed to call for it. Fingers seemed to remember it from when I last played it maybe 40 years ago. Rare that. I don't have any muscle memory from something I practiced from YT 3 days ago.....

    And in my darkest moment, fetal and weeping
    The moon tells me a secret, my confidant
    As full and bright as I am
    This light is not my own and
    A million light reflections pass over me
    Its source is bright and endless
    She resuscitates the hopeless
    Without her, we are lifeless satellites drifting

    Overhead the albatross
    Hangs motionless upon the air
    And deep beneath the rolling waves
    In labyrinths of coral caves
    The echo of a distant time
    Comes willowing across the sand
    And everything is green and submarine
