song is a personal remedy. i kind of wished i could have been there. didn't think they honoured him properly.


People want their picture taken with you
Secretly afraid that their hairdo will be wrong
A man needs a song

Tens of thousands you inspire
With your harmonica wet
And your ballpoint on fire

Your life has been no joke
Everybody come round take note

Tonight they will honour
Your fame
They’ll engrave on a little plaque your name

And then you’ll give an acceptance speech
And everyone in this room will
Stand on their feet

Tell them about your 20’s
Leaving Canada
Mr. shaky pictures moved to California

Where he sold his songs
For the highest bid
But that’s just one little part in this long film you’ve lived

Other artists just as lucky as you
But they just took their multi millions
And enjoyed the view

Woke up every morning to smell their gold
But you are a miner
For the Art of Old

You’ve run bases around kings and fools
And built places
like the Bridge school

Unafraid to point
Your finger in song
Enemies made out of lovers of bombs

They say you collect model trains
An interesting fact about your brain
I guess studying the miniature
Gives you insight into the bigger picture

Tonight when you lay down your head
In some overpriced fancy hotel bed
Remember if you die you leave behind
More than a legacy of rhyme
