I Was Only 19 (A Walk in the Light Green) by John Schumann
Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon
God help me, he was going home in June
Sam Stone by John Prine
There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes
Jesus Christ died for nothing I suppose
Both wonderful examples of the craft of lyric writing. And both with a god reference I noticed as I typed this up. I saw John Schumann perform Only 19 at the Woodford Folk Festival, very moving for everyone there. I am yet to see John Prine in concert but hope to get the opportunity sometime.
