Another favorite about a nagging wife that JP 'heard about' :

"My body's in this room with you just catching hell
While my soul is drinking beer down the road a spell
You might think I'm listening to your grocery list
But I'm leaning on the jukebox and I'm about half ... way there"

Yep, another one that brings smiles to what might otherwise be tearful reality... like a part of life on the whole.

From the issues of PTSD, post-Vietnam, with

'Saigon'

to imagining what a disappointing life it might be to be Jesus, and have few persons to discuss life's hardships with, as in

'Everybody Needs Somebody'

The speakers are well-Prined..

Another from among old favorites, silly, ridiculous, abstract, heart-felt, somber, stark, relationship struggles, and more.

From the 'somber thoughts about relationship' category, and acceptance of...

I liked the version of this he did with Nanci Griffith, but this one's pretty darned nice, too:

'The Speed of the Sound of Loneliness'

Still no news, more recent than a couple days ago.

Tragic Americana, raw reality, life in the corners and shadows of Main Street America, with love, death, unmet expectations, and more. Once thoughtful and somber music on the farm;

Another reflecting Americana, but with more of a smile..

Off to the store for senior hour in the wee hours. I don't know about others, but I think having senior hour from 7:00 A.M. until 8:00 A.M. at the grocery is a bit of a cruel joke, if it weren't for stocking taking place in the middle of the night... I think I heard the dogs ask, "What's he doing up? He's never up at this hour..."

Can't remember if this one was posted. JP at his most goofy/playful:

The cannibals can catch me and fry me in a pan
Long as I got my woman
I could get the electric chair for a phony rap
Long as she's sittin' in my lap

Aw Heck

Not an update, but an appreciation for the man and his incredibly beautiful, touching, empathetic work.
