First chuckle of the day! This has to be the only song I ever heard about an “Owie”. I wonder if your objective was to get a little attention from Harriet?

Texas Water might be the only trio to do this song in the later part of the twentieth century. By Jacque Brel via the Browns. (p) 1990 txh2o

For years and years and years… this was the only JMT album I owned… this was the only JMT album that I knew existed; and this has always been one of my “most favorite” songs… not just one of my favorite JMT songs… one of my most favorite songs ever. I loved Barbara’s voice and her timing and her range… and how she sang the song so… realistically. It was as if she and I were actually having this exchange in some noisy crowed smoke filled lounge. I never meet Barbara in person… but I knew her for years and years and years, Bye’ Barbara… you are remembered.

Cool vibe eerily married to the dark content… I kind of want more verses to see what happens!

Thanks for the comment James! I love your story about your Senior year. This “Skating” song is fun to listen to. I’m on my second time thru. Definitely unique!

Barbara wrote this about a friend from Portland. It became her most requested song until she wrote North Sulfur River. Maybe because it was her only other song. (c) 1990 Royal T Music

Beautiful song

This originated as a poem sent to me by Rose Kampton, It was essentially a complaint. I turned it into a prayer and put music to it. Then when Brook drowned it became something altogether else. (c) 1990 Royal T Muaic

This is a beautiful poem sung beautifully by Barbara. Barbara passed on during August 20, 2019. Barbara was no only an extremely intelligent individual, she was ever so sweet and compassionate…always willing to listen to and be there for others who were going through rough water.

This is amazing. I love this song. I was born in 1961 and was aware of the war as a child. It was a big world lesson for a little mind that if you were a young guy you would be forced to fight and die in a country on the other side of the world, and I saw this on the same tv I saw the GI Joe doll ads aimed at little boys. Later as a teen I had the vision of the guys on stage thrashing out the rock & roll and punk, the living spirits of the dead boys, armed with guitars and drums and skill and rage. Thanks for writing this song. It has a fine groove.

Saved!
