Tonight the moon shines bright on the earth.
I have seen shots from across the world as it makes it way around the globe as day becomes night.

[Linked Image]

Tonight we also lost someone very special that I grew up with listening to his music.
His lyrics rang loud through the late 60s and 70s speaking truth sarcastically, irreverently, but always on point.
John Prine left us tonight - A victim of COVID 19

May the moon tonight show him the way. And if you listen carefully you may hear him sing a song from his last album

When I get to heaven, I'm gonna shake God's hand
Thank him for more blessings than one man can stand
Then I'm gonna get a guitar and start a rock-n-roll band
Check into a swell hotel; ain't the afterlife grand?

And then I'm gonna get a cocktail: vodka and ginger ale
Yeah, I'm gonna smoke a cigarette that's nine miles long
I'm gonna kiss that pretty girl on the tilt-a-whirl
'Cause this old man is goin' to town

Adios My Friend
And I will always remember - Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore

The moon has been awesome. As far as Prine, Summers End is becoming a favorite of mine...rip.

Classic Prine - Simple Song Powerful Message - But the story is in the lyrics

Summers End

Lyrically, he is probably the best in capturing America, and all that is good and all that is bad.

Tough couple of weeks in the Nashville music word. Kenny Rogers, Joe Diffe and now John Prine. Two to COVID-19. Sucks

It sure does... and I am afraid more are to come.

Here is the back story to Summers End for those that watched the video

I just watched the video again, simple and powerful for sure. Just recently found out a cousin celebrated one year of sobriety from opioids, if you met her you would never suspect, she's a beautiful and loving young mom. I think I'll share this video with her today.
