Message:  Hey Larry Larry I wrote you a song

I'm out here a thousand miles from my home
Walking a road other men have gone down
I'm seeing a new world of people and things
Hear paupers and peasants and princes and kings.

Hey hey Larry Larry I wrote you a song
About a funny old man that's coming along
Seems sick and a hungry, he’s tired and torn
He acts like he's dying and he's hardly been born.

Hey Larry Larry but I know that you know
All the things that I'm saying and a many times more
I'm singing you the song but I can't sing enough
'Cause there's not many men that've done the things the way you've done.

Here's to Mickey and Elvis and Leadbelly too
And to all the good people that travelled with you
Here's to the hearts and the hands of the men
That come with the thirst and are gone with a wind.

I'm leaving tomorrow but I could leave today
Somewhere down the same road someday
The very last thing that I'd want to do
Is to say I've been hitting some funny Gatherings with you.
