One day, all of us, rich and poor, black and white, etc. etc., will walk alone by the black muddy river.
Just arranged this tune today for my band and it brought to my mind a wonderful convergence:
I will walk alone by the black muddy river and sing me a song of my own.
Sometimes we walk alone, sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own.
"For me, I think the only danger is being too much in love with guitar playing. The music is the most important thing, and the guitar is only the instrument." Jerry Garcia
