She would have been 99 years old today. I was on tour in Oklahoma when she died. I couldn’t afford to fly back. She was very much the matriarch of our big Irish family.

in a certain light, this is where me and a lot of my friends come from

Every once in a while you’re sitting around nursing your grudges and you switch on the damn radio and the perfect song comes on…..

You got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
When I was down, you just stood there grinning
You got a lotta nerve to say you gotta helping hand to lend
You just want to be on the side that’s winning

You say I let you down, you know it’s not like that
If you’re so hurt why then don’t you show it?
You say you lost your faith, but that’s not where it’s at
You have no faith to lose and you know it

I know the reason that you talk behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you’re in with
Do you take me for such a fool to think I’d make contact
With the one who tries to hide what she don’t know to begin with?

You see me on the street, you always act surprised
You say, “How are you? Good luck,” but you don’t mean it
When you know as well as me you’d rather see me paralyzed
Why don’t you just come out once and scream it?

No, I do not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I’d rob them
And now I know you’re dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don’t you understand, it’s not my problem

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment, I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes
You’d know what a drag it is to see you
