Those of you who showed up from Mr. Charleston, thank you for the visit. Look 'round, let me know what you think.
This is a photo of Pierce Pettis, performing at the Gamble Rodgers Folk Festival 2010.
You just had to be there. Lovely day, but sitting in the late Florida sun can get warm.
Now pat your foot, and then stomp your feet, and then stand up and say "Amen",
hit'll break a sweat.
He did a song called 'Talk Memphis'
ya' gotta listen close now,
'cause the song, hit' twas' written and sung, like how they talk
ya know, down in Memphis.
Made me stop and remember time passed.
Think 'bout the iron railroad bridge over the Mississippi. Stunning.
Looking up the song,
hell, hit turns out that Jesse Winchester
done wrote it and maybe has the best recording,
on youtube or anywhere.
