i wanted to get it on. Never really got to. Without Bill Graham we would not have as accessible, open-minded hopefulness to our culture. God bless the bluecoats. I remember getting to the point that hi was possible as well as living easy. I don't remember it being a bummer to tour. I got here too late and wanted to be there all along. Now nowhere is ok; that vaporishtransatory whah who wisdom winds. Thanks for showing up.
keep your character, enjoy living, share your fortune,

the ballad of cc joe
born from the loins of lies and deceit
who were they? they just met on the street
the greed of her, intoxication from him
the result, well, a bit more than a whim
"a bastard, that is what you are"
so they said to me
"a trouble maker, you will never go far"
so said while slapping my wrist in that nunnery
ran away, joined our circus when I was in junior high
got on the bus, made my way, I got by
heads helping out, taking me under their wing
tought me what I needed to know, what songs to sing
a year or so passed, got into high school
couldn't listen to all them rules
quit again, hit the tour
school was always such a bore
finally got my GED
Nuns said "you have to figure out what you will be"
my retort: 'can't I just be me?'
'who I am, just little old, cc?'
got into 'higher' education for half a term
discovered there was more to learn
from the road that tought me, the tours that tought me well
never did need to listen to no school bell
over the years, the time passed, made my life
as fate would have it, found my wife
she is the source of all joy, playing her fife
with the right background music, never any strife
we 'walk the earth' together hand in hand
listening to tunes in our head from, well, you know from which band...
trying to do 'good' though maybe not always doing 'well'
made our own standards, and we be happy as hell
a tear in my eye, as I think on the past
wonder how long this life will last?
don't matter, I'll see you all in the next world
I'll be there, holding hands with my gurl
and now back to our regularly scheduled program....
cc on the way to 'high' school:
cc studying at home:
"Only, only thing that's taught in school
Love if you can, but don't be cruel
That's the rule of thumb
Where I come from
But I'm not calling back
All I ever wanted was
A two-room shack
Free to come and free to go
The only life I care to know"
love and peace.
2 they roll them realy big... :)
The 3 Rs minus the 4th R = one negative reality
humble apologies. humble apologies...
and there I was KNOWING you's younger by 7 days...
sorry mary, can I clain dyslexia or senility??
reverse obverse analysis??...
nah, I simply fucked it up. had the knowledge, the intention, but the result, the reverse of reality... (my old lady slapped me upside the head for you-- nothing worse than saying someone is older then they are, she muttered...)
fact is, back in Junior 'High' and 'High' school the Reading I was ok at, the Rriting, not too shabby,
but the Riffmatic... I was lousy at it, obviously. and those weekly Reality Checks... forget about it, failed all of them, and I got stung every year in the spelling bees...
don't know much trigonometry... don't know much algebra....
don't know much about 'reality...'
OK, here is a typical 'math' question from our world:
deadhead Johnny has 4 apples. deadhead Lisa has one apple.
If deadhead Lisa cuts her apple in half, and if deadhead Johnny cuts each of his 4 apples into 8 equal parts, and he gives deadhead Lisa 16 of those pieces, which then, deadhead Lisa cuts again into halves.... how many joints did they smoke?
that would be +7. -7 would be John Lennon's. Jackson Browne's. Someone else's too, as I recall.
If I knew I was going to live this long,I would have take'n better care of my self.And I just turn 45 on 5/20. Besides being old is relative,and all my relatives are old.
Weir's b day:
marye's b day!
....in my above post I may have gotten my movie stars mixed up. Or else how old she was. I didn't jump up and look at the picture! For the GOGD's 45th year, I'd love to see something in Golden Gate Park and if it was too big for the park, how about Ocean Beach.. And while we are on the subject, what is Bob Weir's birthday?
Hahahahahaha.....Good 1 cc:)
I know he shares his birth date with Brent, but what YEAR was Jeff Chimenti born??
7 minutes younger than Weir counts, mary. you safe.
it is not how you feel, it is how you look.
