Travis McGee's still in Cedar Key
That's what John McDonald said
My rendezvous so long overdue
With all of the things I've sung and read
They still apply to me, they all make sense in time

Chorus
But now I'm incommunicado
Driving by myself down the road with a hole in it
Songs with no bravado
Takin' the long way home

Now on the day that John Wayne died
I found myself on the continental divide
Tell me where do we go from here?
Think I'll ride into Leadville and have a few beers
Think of "Red River","Liberty Valence" can't believe the old man's gone

Chorus
But now he's incommunicado
Leaving such a hole in a world that believed
That a life with such bravado
Was taking the right way home

So when I finished the last line
I put the book by itself on the shelf
With my heart in it
Never wasting time takin' the right way home
I know you're never wastin' time
Findin' the right way home

Still I am incommunicado
Livin' next door to a leg with a pin in it
Never wastin' time, takin' the right way home
(Repeat)

    General CommentJimmy's just musing about life and the way to live your life. Heroically, the way Travis McGee did in John D. MacDonald's novels or the way John Wayne's movie characters did. Maybe he's also musing that real life doesn't have as much "bravado" as the movies or the novels.

    No idea what livin' next door to a leg with a pin in it means, though.
