Back to Reality

Hell or Highwater by William Elliott Whitmore
"Smoke em if you got em,
drink your glasses to the bottom,
and toast me on another year.
Another year of hope,
another year of holdin on,
you drinkers by day, and bastards by dawn.

And I hope I will see you soon,
and Ill be home come hell or high water,
and I know i will see you soon.

Gather round friends and neighbors,
who make your living by labor,
and share with me this little time.
This little time that we have left,
to have a drink and catch a breath,
well it might just be what saves our lives.

And I hope I will see you soon,
and Ill be home come hell or high water,
and I know i will see you soon.

Smoke em if you got em,
drink your glasses to the bottom,
and listen to the howling dogs,
and oh how it pleases me,
to be in such company
and im so glad our paths have crossed.

And I hope I will see you soon,
and Ill be home come hell or high water,
and I know i will see you soon.

and Ill be home come hell or high water,
and I know i will see you soon."



I had the best time ever on my vacation and I'm sad I had to come back. On our last night together, Hero's friend Helen sang this song and played her ucalayly for us. It was the perfect ending to a new beginning.

Photos of my trip if anyone is interested...

I would have enjoyed that singing.
