Existential Friday Lyric

"If I Had Known"

A little creek you could spit across
Jimmy and me each took one more toss
our spinners bright in the evening air
People always said, There ain't no fish in there

Well grownups they ain't always right
Jimmy and me walked home slow that night
right down Main Street in our P.F. Fliers
with two 5 lb. bass making grown men liars

Jimmy if I had known--
I might have stopped fishing right then
It's just as well we don't know when things
will never be that good again

--Greg Brown

Ah, Greg Brown. Must get "Bathtub Blues" back into John's car-music rotation. You wouldn't happen to be considering, ahem, a visit to Madison for his appearance on Oct. 15th?
