about

Someone had pointed out that many of my songs are about me., so I wrote this song that's all about me.

lyrics

So I guess this is my story
In all its glory if you care
It all started in Chicago
Hell if I know exactly where

A boy and a girl
Out to change the world

So it wound up in divorce court
It was so short and that was that
So we moved on in with Grandma
Me and my mama and the cat

Most memories are good
I blocked out what I could

So I interrupt this program
With this breaking news story
And I know you're thinking oh damn
This sounds nothing close to me

In the year that I turned seven
They shot John Lennon and he died
And my mom she got remarried
I'll call him Harry 'cause he's shy (and he is)

While making up for lost time
My daddy fought crime

So I interrupt this program
With this breaking news story
And I know you're thinking oh damn
This sounds nothing close to me

It took all kinds of time
To make up my mind
Even now I still find
I'm lost

When I think about the answer
When I asked her to be mine
So together in the moonlight
Under the starlight we made a son

While my life goes on
My momma is gone

So I interrupt this program
With this breaking news story
And I know you're thinking oh damn
This sounds nothing close to me
