August 26/2020. First posting. For Mr. Bert. Special thanks to Thaymon Hayes and Bennie Moten for their 1924 composition entitled 'South'.

lyrics

I kick a stone while I’m walking
And wink at the moon
Shiny ol’ stars are saying “How do you do”
It’s nice to know that the highways and roads haven’t changed
My travelling shoes are happy again

Not much to carry
Just the clothes on my back
And a beat-up guitar that tags along in a sack
A rag-tag team making our way
To just there over yonder -

Good-bye Caledonia moon
It sure has been nice talking to you
I guess I best be on my way
To find the girl from yesterday

A warm summer wind
Is nudging me on
And that beat-up guitar knows so many songs
The skies and rivers are bluer than blue
Just there over yonder

Good-bye Caledonia moon
It sure has been nice talking to you
I guess I best be on my way
To find the girl from yesterday

The sun’s on the rise
And I’m singing a song
Don’t you fret, don’t you worry
When you find out I’ve gone
When you make your way I’ll be waiting for you
Just there - over yonder

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. "Sweet Tooth" is currently home to at least six tracks that will appear on our upcoming seventh release entitled "Piece Of Your Ghost". I'm currently close to release of two new singles for our "Or In Cyprus" collection. Just one release to date. Lonely soul ... needs pals. xoRJ ... more
