Dear friends
You are angels and drunks
You are magi
Old friends

You stuck a pin in the map I was in
And this is a note for a road sign
Cuttin' the breeze in this Tennessee sundown
Came the sounds of the voices I know
I've been pondering trees
On the steeliest come down
But now a moment I'm home

I've got bluster enough
For the sales of a clipper
