DIRE STRAITS-TELEGRAPH ROAD

A long time ago came a man on a track
Walking thirty miles with a sack on his back
And he put down his load where he thought it was the best
Made a home in the wilderness
Built a cabin and a winter store
And he ploughed up the ground by the cold lake shore
The other travelers came walking down the track
And they never went further, no, they never went back
Then came the churches then came the schools
Then came the lawyers then came the rules
Then came the trains and the trucks with their load
And the dirty old track was the telegraph road

  1. Your pictures remind me so much of West Virginia.

  2. Thats nice how your shot this photo. I don’t know much about poetry, but the words in the poem look like it could be made into a song.

  3. Well, I feel dumb. Those are the lyrics for a song!

  4. Fantastic shot!! Makes me feel like I’m home, somehow.. Must be the old wood. LOL

  5. You should embed an MP3 of the song to listen to as you contemplate the picture… which is probably a violation of copyright, but would just be so awesome.

    • I’ve tried to do just that on previous posts. This format I’m using for word press will not allow me to insert multiple embeds. It will choose either the photo or the song. Not both. Yup…that’s what I said… “That sux”

  6. Weathered wood, leading into the unknown. We must follow that road!
