   Interesting lyrics.


Childhood comes for me at night
Voices of my friends
Your face bathing me in light
Hope that never ends

  Interesting lyrics.




Indeed!!!

My sister who is now 50 moved away from our small home town in Nova Scotia to the "big city" Toronto over 30 years ago. She tells me most of her dreams are located in the small town we grew up in involving people currently in her life and many who she hasn't seen in 30 years

JB sure can hit the nail on the head so beautifully

I prefer his lighter side.....

I met her in a crowded barroom
One of those typical Hollywood scenes
I was doing my very beat Bogart
But I was having trouble getting into her jeans

   SO I PUNCHED an unemployed actor;
  Defending her liberty.
    Well he stood up and knocked me thru that bar room door
                           BUT THAT GIRL CAME HOME WITH ME

Indeed....but I do believe he was defending her dignity.
Having spent over a decade working in LA after I graduated, I have been to many of those bars.

In L.A., what are the odds of swinging a dead cat and not  hitting an unemployed  actor?

It is a dance we do in silence
Far below this morning sun
You in your life, me in mine
We have begun
Here we stand and without speaking
Draw the water from the well
And stare beyond the plains
To where the mountains lie so still

Now your daddy's in the den shootin' up the evening news
Mama's with a friend, lately she's been so confused
Little one--
Come on and take my hand
I may not have the answer but I believe I got a plan

Honey you shake and I'll rattle and we'll roll on down the line
And see if we can't get in touch with a very close friend of mine
But let me clue you in, it ain't like him
To argue or pretend--
Honey let me introduce you to my redneck friend

He's the missing link, the kitchen sink, He's eleven on a scale of ten..   honey let me introduce you to my redneck friend.   


Still one of my favorite JB songs.

I haven't listened to Jackson Browne in a long time. Years ago, he was my favorite. Thanks, OP, for reminding me of him.
