Moving On

17 Sep

      &nbsp    It’s that time again. Waiting and Seeing seems to have yeilded to Moving On, in some direction or other. In less cryptic terms (for those of you not up to date on the thots in my head) Houses have finally been found in California for Rhea, Zoe, Womark, and Easton to live in. This also means that we now know exactly who is moving to California, and since Easton is among them, this also means that Rhea is happier than she has been. That’s really the big news.
Not related at all is the new look of Anakin Skywalker!!!! Like father, like son, I guess.
Not related at all to that is the fact that I posted the wrong lyrics to Paradise in my last entry. Since then, I have (finally) been able to, uh, acquire a copy of the song and discover the real ones. I hope John Prine doesn’t mind.

When I was a child my family would travel down to Western Kentucky
where my parents were born
There’s a backwards old town that’s often remembered
so many times that my memory is worn

Chorus: And Daddy won’t you take me back to Mulenburg County
down by the Green River where Paradise lay?
Well, I’m sorry my son but you’re too late in asking
Mr. Peabody’s Coal Train has hauled it away.

Well sometimes we’d travel right down the Green River
to the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill,
where the air smelled like snakes, and we’d shoot with our pistols
but empty pop bottles was all we would kill


Then the coal company came with the world’s largest shovel
and they tortured the timber and stripped all the land.
Well they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
then they wrote it all down as the progress of man.


When I die let my ashes flow down the Green River
let my soul roll on up to the Rochester Dam.
I’ll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waiting
just five miles away from wherever I am.


And now, semi-related to most of the above (in that it is also a camp song, and relates to California) I present even more lyrics:

I’d like to rest my heavy head tonight
On a bed of California stars
I’d like to lay my weary bones tonight
On a bed of California stars

I’d love to feel your hand touching mine
And tell me why I must keep working on
Yes, I’d give my life to lay my head tonight
On a bed of California stars

I’d like to dream my troubles all away
On a bed of California stars
Jump up from my starbed and make another day
Underneath my California stars

They hang like grapes on vines that shine
And warm the lovers glass like friendly wine
So, I’d give this world
just to dream a dream with you
On our bed of California stars
