    "My Name Is Buddy"

    Now my name is Buddy, don't you pity me
    Don't you pity me, don't you pity me
    My name is Buddy, don't you pity me
    Don't you pity me, don't you pity me
    Just because I ain't so big, you think I'm small
    Well, you think I'm small, now you think I'm small
    You go around with your head up in the clouds
    You just tall, that's all, you just tall, that's all

    Now, if you like your tree, better watch out for your tree
    Watch out for your tree, Lord, that tree ain't free
    The birds won't be round just to keep you company, no
    Keep you company, no keep you company

    Now if you like your little backyard, watch out for your backyard
    Don't let them put a toll road right through your backyard
    If you like your little backyard, watch out for your backyard
    Don't let them put a toll road right through your backyard

    Now You go around with your head up in the clouds
    Head up in the clouds, your head up in the clouds
    You go around with your head up in the clouds
    Your head up in the clouds, oh your head up in the clouds
    You ain't so big, now, you just tall, that's all

    Now this land was made for you and me
    Better watch out for your land, better watch out for your land
    This land was made just for you and me
    Better watch out for your land, better watch out for your land

    I treasure and listen often to many of Iris's songs.
    She's a deep well and her waters pure. One of my favorites is on her lighter side.
    I always seem to picture a light spring rain...

    Maybe one must be of a certain time, to understand why so much keeps going back to Southeast Asia. Many volunteered more were shanghaied..

    The draft pulled many of my fellows out of their lives and we who did not go will always have a troubled look when we look into their eyes.

    Most of those who went as boys came home and tried to learn to live as men
    among their memories of tortured death.

    No one has ever conveyed this to me so well as John.

    What a wonderful mess that was. Americans at their very worst, yet there were a handful of great young Americans too. I admired the Doughnut Dollies a lot. Young American women who put their butts on the firing line to be helpful to GI's. They volunteered for dangerous duty without guns to make themselves feel more impervious.

    They worked for the Red Cross, one "manned" a small trailer near our side of the runway. The doughnuts were less than good and the fruit drinks that came from a giant dairy outfit in Southern California were terrible. But we didn't care about that, it was really nice to be able to talk to these wonderful young women for a minute.

    see how she gentles those who wish to touch her beauty




    "Take My Breath Away"

    Watching every motion
    In my foolish lover's game
    On this endless ocean
    Finally lovers know no shame

    Turning and returning
    To some secret place inside
    Watching in slow motion
    As you turn around and say

    Take my breath away
    Take my breath away

    Watching I keep waiting
    Still anticipating love
    Never hesitating
    To become the fated ones
    Turning and returning

    To some secret place to find
    Watching in slow motion
    As you turn to me and say
    My love

    Take my breath away

    Through the hourglass I saw you
    In time you slipped away
    When the mirror crashed I called you
    And turned to hear you say
    If only for today
    I am unafraid

    Take my breath away
    Take my breath away

    Watching every motion
    In this foolish lover's game
    Haunted by the notion
    Somewhere there's a love in flames

    Turning and returning
    To some secret place inside
    Watching in slow motion
    As you turn my way and say

    Take my breath away
    My love
    Take my breath away
    My love
    Take my breath away
    My love
    Take my breath away
    My love"
