Subject: RE: Songs about getting really old?
Ebbie, thank you, I think you see this fella just right. It's my hope as well that we might all be able to wake up, before it's too late.

meself, many thanks. I'll have to check out those lyrics in "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?" I wonder if that one is included in the lyric database here. I guess it should be easy enough to search for online.

I've often found it difficult to step forward against the grain of criticism with regard to some of the messages in my songs. Sometimes it seems as though the words write themselves. They insist on being written and then further insist that they be heard, played, and performed. I have little choice but to obey their nagging and taunting. I'm fascinated by this, the way that some song ideas come to me and I don't want to offend the muse by denying or limiting my participation in the process.
