A message for all ...

Uploaded: Dec 25, 2019
I saw "The Electric Horseman" recently (enjoyed it!). I was reminded of this gorgeous cut
Hand's on the Wheel from Willie Nelson's magnificent Red Headed Stranger album (from a-way back in sebbendy-fahve I b'lieve - offa my lawn!). A little research revealed that he didn't write this one - but the poetry's such that he might have if Will Callery hadn't beat him to it.

I love the message, especially during this Season of loved ones and remembrance. However you may celebrate it, I hope you will!

At a time when the world seems to be spinnin' hopelessly out of control,
There's deceivers an' believers an' old in-betweeners,
That seem to have no place to go.
Well, it's the same old song, it's right an' it's wrong,
An' livin' is just somethin' that I do.
An' with no place to hide, I looked in your eyes,
An' I found myself in you. ...

Now my hand's on the wheel, I've something that's real,
An' I feel like I'm goin' home.

... and to all, a Good Night.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

Tom...Welcome Back! HOORAY!

I listen to country music frequently. It's inspiring and can be very funny!

Hawaiian music, now that's way cool...check out with the silly guy has to say about the ukulele! Is he coo-coo or what?
