Roy-O

Post by saw » May 1st, 2018, 8:22 am

how
can a voice cause water to pool
in the corner of a blue eye
how
can a Traveling Wilbury
go out in a flicker of air
how
can a candle so strong
leave us with no fire
It Can't !
Roy Orbison
what you have can't be taught
what you have cannot be lost
only bodies of bones
skin and organs other than a Hammond B3
organs without pedals and keys
can be food for the worms
that generate new life
your voice lives....framed
in black locks and sunglasses
because it's so damn bright

hard to believe 3 of the 5 Wilburys are no longer with us.....rest easy George, Tom, Roy......you all left your mark
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading
