There are songs that transport me back in time, Freebird is one of them.
It must have been 1991 when Fag and I sat on a stoop on one of those little narrow streets in Kin.
The sun was just right, beaming down on us in the chilly air. Normall it wasn’t cold on the rock but I remember it as cold that day.
We drank some cold vending machine beer, you could buy most anything from one of those back in the day.
Somewhere down the road Freebird was pumping out of a bar.
If half the stories he told were true, he had the saddest youth of anyone I have ever met.
I sometimes think that is what drove him to an early grave.
Where ever you are Fag I hope you found peace.
