There is a song from the 70's, I liked the words. I think The Band sang it.
It's a short little song. The words are something that goes like; the ole
cat on the the road, he could use a little push, cause he's got 9 good
lives to live. But i guess it's like my daddy said, you only live till your
dead and you got to live and live and live. There is a course about every one
looking fro the sun and bringing rain and pain on he who hesitates. then the
song sings what his momma said , It's in your heart, not your head and
you've got to give and give and give. After reading the story that song
came to mind and I'll be stuck singing it all day.
