An ode to John Prine.

What a month. How much has COVID 19 already taken from us? Last moments. Last words. Humanity in the face of fear.

Here are 4 John Prine songs to pass the days and help us still be human as time goes.

  1. Spanish Pipe Dream. “Blow up your TV/Throw away your paper/Go to the country/Build you a home/Plant a little garden/Eat a lot of peaches.”
  2. Paradise. “I’ll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waitin/ Just 5 miles away from where ever I am”
  3. Souvenirs. “Memories that can’t be boughten/ They can’t be won at carnivals for free/Well, it took me years to get those souvenirs/And I don’t know how they slipped away from me”
  4. When I get to Heaven. “When I get to heaven/I’m gonna shake God’s hand/Thank him for more blessings than one man can stand”
