The four line lead in:“’still a long way from everywhere”Well, nobody can go everywhere, though I have been to more than most. And I have lived in the city(s) and out on the range (think mountains, prairies and deserts).But I’ve had to put the cover on my bucket list.>>>>>>>>
First verse:I have lived in Northern California, and I have walked amongthe redwoods. And though I did see the Carribean, i’didn’t see very much of it.I have’ve rode a lot of freight trains. I came through Tucson in 1948, a sixteen year old kid that had no idea where he was going. It was my great good fortune that the freight train i caught out of Colton was a steam engine. It was the last steam engine I saw on any of the main lines. I got off the train in Deming, New Mexico. Was there less than two months, Couple of weeks afer I arrived I was night cook at a burger joint on the west side of town, Made the best hamburgers in town.Did a lot of thumbing, too. Often as not, I did not have a destination, but that never seemed to worry me. It was a wild aimless ride at times, but interesting and educationing.>>>>>>>>That’s it for now. I’m getting a bit groggy and hungry. think I’ll go get a Dos Equi out og the fridge.
