She Came from Overseas

She Came From Overseas

Mermaid across the bar
she lives on oxygen
and drives fast cars.
Signs the silver
icons from afar.
On Thanksgiving
leave the door ajar.
Heard the news today
from overseas.
She brought the news
from overseas.

She spoke not a word
just danced and signed
spoke with her mind.
It was late a half a mile away,
could still hear the guitars play.
She brought the news today
from overseas.
She came from overseas.

I have waited for so long
to hear the music of your waves.

It's like the wind
don't be confused.
Open your heart
to the muse.
She read the runes
and played the spoons.
Danced the dervish dances
sang the wicked tunes.
She heard the news today
from overseas.
She brought the news
from overseas.

Come on to the location
got to walk, got to raise the stone.

Mermaid behind the bar
celtic fire she's like a star.
Weaving from the gold
to make the shirts.
Mixing moonwater
with graveyard dirt.
Heard the news today
from overseas.
She came from overseas.

One of the living legends of the Columbus-Phenix City music scene, flute and keyboard master Geno Woolfolk, is alive and recovering well.

Had a good visit with Geno last night as we "Watched the nurses come and go, talking of Michelangelo...", Geno was sitting up in the hospital easy chair checking out the Jonah Hex books Brian Fowler sent him as we bid him good evening. Everything is looking excellent for him after the expected recovery time.

Stopped in from the driving rain to visit Geno a bit last night, great to see him sitting up and recovered from a tough morning yesterday, and great to carry on a conversation as he gets stronger, the wild and crazy guy we know so well.
