Speaking of Beautiful, I saw Joe Cocker in concert singing "You are so Beautiful" and that's another great song!

The Mad Dog and Englishman now makes his residence in Colorado.

May 2019 be better for us all.

Here is another song that reminds me of Ennis and what he might be thinking..

**Nobody Knows**

I pretend that I'm glad you went away
But these four walls close in more every day
And I'm dying inside and nobody knows it
But me

Like a clown I put on a show
The pain is real even if nobody knows
And I'm crying inside and nobody knows it
But me

Why didn't I say the things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away
Now my world is just-a tumblin' down
I can see it so clearly but you're nowhere around
The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
And I'm missing you and nobody knows it but me

How blue can I get, you could ask my heart
Just like a jigsaw puzzle it's been torn all apart
A million words couldn't say just how I feel
A million years from now, you know, I'll be loving you still
The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
And I'm missing you and nobody knows it but me

The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
Nobody knows it but me


This song has been done by a few folks but noone sings it like Kevin Sharpe.
I honestly believe this song was wriiten by a man about a man.
If not, it shoulda been!

I'm gonna listen today to it!

Here is a song I listen to every day now, while the Iraq funding bill rages on. There have been war protesters in downtown Denver lately. I think of this as a message from Jack.

Brothers in Arms

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

(Mark Knopfler)

Wow Lee!
That is beautiful and poingnet!
I can see that coming from Jack to Ennis but it has many other meaning too in our current time!
Thanks for sharing that!

Yes, it does have a lot of meanings. This was also the song that ended the very best, IMO, segment of Miami Vice where a cop's partner was killed.

Tonite on my way home I just wandered around aimlessly for a couple of hours and then slowly found my way home. There was no one there, and I sat down on my deck and started listening to Pat Metheney on BBM Radio 1. I thought of Jack, always wandering between Texas and Wyoming, and I thought of this song:

All the Roadrunning (sung by Mark Knoppfler and Emmylou Harris, words by Mark Knoppfler)

A million miles our vagabond heels
Clocked up beneath the clouds
They're counting down to show time
When we do it for real with the crowds
Air miles are owing
But they don't come for free
And they don't give you any for pain

But if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

The rimshots come down like cannon fire
And thunder off the wall
There's a man in every corner
And each one is giving his all

This is my fife
This is my drum
So you never will hear me complain

And if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

All the roadrunning
All the roadrunning

Well if you're inclined
To go up on the wall
It can only be fast and high
And those who don't like the danger
Soon find something different to try
When there's only a ringin' in your ears
And an echo down memory lane

But if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning

The show's packing up
I sit and watch the convoy
Leaving town
There's no pretending I'm not a fool,
For riding around and around
Like the pictures you keep of your old wall of death
You showed me one time on the plane

But if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

A million miles of vagabond sky
Clocked up above the clouds
I'm still your man for the roaming
For as long as there's roamin' allowed

There'll be a rider
And there'll be a wall
As long as the dreamer remains

And if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
May 2019 be better for us all.

My Lovely Man by RHCP

I used to shout
Across the room to you
And you'd come dancin'
Like a fool
Shuffle step
You funky mother
Come to me
All warm as covers

Rest with me
My lovely brother
For you see
There is no other
Memory so sad and sweet
I'll see you soon
Save me a seat

Well I'm cryin'
Now my lovely man
Yes I'm cryin'
Now and no one can
Ever fill the
The hole you left my man
I'll see you later
My lovely man if I can

In my room
I'm all alone
Waiting for you
To get home
Listen to roberta flack
But I know you won't come back

Well I'm cryin'
Now my lovely man
I'll see you later
My lovely man if I can

Just in case
You never knew
I miss you slim
I love you too
See my heart
It's black and blue
When I die
I will find you

Well I'm cryin'
Now my lovely man
Yes I'm cryin'
Now and no one can
Ever fill the
The hole you left my man
I'll see you later
My lovely man if I can

Well I'm cryin'
My lovely man
Well I'm cryin'
My lovely man
I'll see you later
My lovely man
We have some good time
My lovely man
