Lyrics
THE GOODBYE MOON

The Boxcars of Night
Have nearly rumbled through
Their Smokey Billows
Disperse into the Dew
The Edge of Day,
His hair so nicely combed
Prepares to greet
All the Despairing and Alone
As usual they have much better things to do
All he sees is the last of the Goodbye Moon.

Rumor and Gossip
They fight on the stair
Seems there’s some question
Of what’s really fair
And downtown the Bad-Goods
Their fists full of Rage
Shake them to Demonstrate
Beside the Freeway
At air conditioned Blurs
That fade in the Gloom
Which hides the Face of the Goodbye Moon

Her name is Molly
Though they call her Peggy Sue
Her eyes are the Color of Rain
She dances with the Stars
Until the Edge of Day
And as you go to ask
Only Silence does remain
Now you smile as you think
She may come again soon
Standing alone ‘neath the Goodbye Moon

[Break]

In Molly’s face there's both
Beauty and Pain
And those eyes,
They are the Color of Rain
Her brother, a con man,
Does the Six O’clock news
Her daddy runs a Hedge Fund
He’s unusually Rude
Beauty and Loss you see
Together the Two
As she calls out to me
‘Neath the Goodbye Moon

There’s trouble on the Main Line
And in Greenwich, too
Daddy says never trust no one
With Nothing to Lose
And, really, Too Much
Is the same thing, you know?
And someday that Bridge
Is really going to Blow
But, right now, Molly sings
A Hymn the color of Blue
We walk together
‘Neath the Goodbye Moon.

"Her eyes are the Color of Rain"!!!
Coop, I had a great time playing this. The lyrics exceed your usual fascinating stories. Any song with "Her name is Molly, Though they call her Peggy Sue, Her eyes are the Color of Rain" has to be a winner!!!!!
Thanks!

Redux
He didn't originate it, but in 1965 Dylan became the Godfather of the Talking Style with "Highway 61" and Tombstone Blues". Ever since, the Style is locked to 1965.
We are in his debt.

Toe-tappin' good tune! I enjoyed this rocking, wailing blues. The guitar lead was fun, and I like the harmonica, but wish it was louder. Makes me think of an outdoor band rocking at a summer festial. Nice work guys!!

I suspect that if you'd heard the harmonica louder you might have asked to turn it down :)

TROUBLE IS
This was a nice, peaceful, Folk song until NEIL,
Just Kidding.

The Band stretches from New South Wales to Boston, via MacJams: 13,400 miles, all the way. The only thing better is if it were 13 miles - but we might be get in trouble, then.

Thanks for coming on the Ride with us.

Very Best,
Coop

This is a rollicking, frolicking good time. Not a good idea to get in the way of this song - it'll go right up over your back.

Great fun here, gents. A real enjoyable listen, and very well done also, which I think is important...

tappin' that toe
This is just something to love.

Dylan, The Rolling Stones (which I'm going to see live in august BTW)and maybe some Bo Diddley influences could be spotted along the timeline...

Clever tweaking of those knobs Neil, and cool performances all over from the both of you.

Bo Didley MADE the Rolling Sones and The Stones may have convinced Dylan that things were Changing, But they ALL influenced This, Brother.

SIMPLE, REALLY
Say, Man
A simple accident of Neil "the Driving Wheel" Porter's generosity of Spirit.

People round here are older than they seem as they reference the seminal 1965 summer. But not old enough for the precursors of Williams, Guthrie, Elliot.

I'm not sure it's evident, but Neil does all the Work.

Thank You,
Coop

Cool!!!
The top is down, the wind is in my face, I got the dashboard speaker cranked, my arm around my best girl, a full tank of gas, and I don't care where I'm going.

OK, the lyrics might have something darker going on, but the rock solid groove, the swampy stinging unbelievably sexy guitar and harp, and those cool Dylanesque vocals just create such a great feel.

I love it!

You're the first to get the Subject/Manner Contrast in the "Road Trip" Rocker setting. As a close listener, I'm not surprised that you did.

With many others, I, too, wait for the follow on to "Rainbow", when your schedule allows.
