Message: 
From Jonmark Stone's song, "When I Heard Newbury Sing"...

The line, "Then he paused to light a Camel"

Here are the lyrics. Jonmark is one talented man as so many of us have discovered. Enjoy.

I met him in Nashville...he was working at his trade
A dreamer and a good one... I listened while he played
And I swore I almost saw her as he sang of Angelene
And I came to hear the music when I heard Newbury sing

He sang a tale of L.A. ... and a boy who lost his way
We hopped a train in Georgia.. two thousand miles we came
Then he paused to light a Camel and with a twinkle in his eye
He said "Don't write what you don't know son, they'll know it when you lie"

A few weeks back I saw him... the poet looked his age
The students all fell silent as the teacher took the stage
And I swore I almost saw her as he sang of Geneveve
And I came to hear the music... I came to face the music
I came to love the music... when I heard Newbury sing
