5/30/01 What I Told Speaking Rock

(A Blues Song, with Snare Brushes and a String Bass)

I've got the Canyon De Chelly
Canyon varnish, cryin' Raven blues

I'd love to stay right here but my
banker thinks I've been cut loose;
He doesn't really understand
what help a tight-wound man can use;

He'll want a clear accounting
of the time I spent away;
He only can relax knowing
I work more than I play;

I've got the Canyon De Chelly
Canyon varnish, cryin' Raven blues,

* * * * * * *

I've got the Canyon De Chelly
Long hike, bumpy ride blues

My doctor will be quite surprised
to find out that I've realized
improvement in my back and toosh
without hiring a nude masseuse.

No known driver can ford the streams
in novel ways that scramble teams
of poets' bones and minds and souls
like Jon Mc in his workin'clothes.

I've got the Canyon De Chelly
Long hike, bumpy ride blues.

* * * * * * *

I've got the Canyon De Chelly
Azure sky, gusty winds blues

Thinkin' all about my baby
and everything that I could lose;
she'd prob'ly like a souvenir
but I'll leave sky and wind right here;

She'll have to settle for some words
so I sure hope I will be heard
when I get all done travellin' home
explainin' just what I have known.

I've got the Canyon De Chelly
Azure sky, gusty wind blues
