Four in the afternoon I should be up and gone soon. This is the shirt that I'm wearing out. Torn at the elbow from too much football and one size too small all around. Stretched shoulder to shoulder, a stretch from soda to soda. And I slept to the radio over the wind in the morning. I'm turned like an elbow; a slumber after parting. Red faced from too much sun in too many summers. And your state fair mirror of John Taylor saw the whole thing.

    General CommentWell the title comes from a Salinger short story, but the lyrical content itself seems to bear no relation to said story. Similar mood though.
