Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

West Bethlehem was no place for a 12-year old

Well, it's not exactly a Christmas song, but I like to play it around Christmas as a part of my mix. John Prine's Jesus, The Missing Years.


Charlie bought some popcorn, Billy bought a car
Someone almost bought the farm, but they didn't go that far
Things shut down at midnight, at least around here they do
'Cause we all reside down the block, inside at 23 skidoo.
