As you know I like John Prine. I’m draggin’ the wife to go see him in May for our wedding anniversary, when he comes to town. Well while listening to music as I worked tonight I finally listed to the lyrics of ‘Spanish Pipedream’. It made me smile, ’cause it sort of reminds me of this little endeavor of ours; especially in light of our new peach tree acquisition this week. It’s a fun little song, about a guy and a stripper. While I didn’t marry a stripper, the chorus kind of sums things up around here:
“Blow up your T.V. throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own”
-John Prine ‘Spanish Pipedream’
Now that we have the trees I’m suddenly keying in on every peach song I hear on Pandora or wherever. And they seem to be country oriented and relatively happy.
Maybe my brass ring was a peach tree all along.
