Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking.

Sarah Jarosz and Tom Waits

Well the moon is brokenAnd the sky is cracked
Come on up to the house
The only things that you can seeIs all that you lack
Come on up to the house
All your cryin don't do no good
Come on up to the house

Come down off the cross
We can use the wood
Come on up to the house

CHORUS
Come on up to the house
Come on up to the house
The world is not my home
I'm just a passin' thru
Come on up to the house

There's no light in the tunnel No irons in the fire
Come on up to the house
And your singin lead sopranoIn a junkman's choir
You gotta come on up to the house
Does life seem nasty, brutish and short

Come on up to the house
The seas are stormy And you can't find no port
Come on up to the house

There's nothin in the world
(Chorus)there's nothin in the world that you can do you gotta come on up to the house
and you been whipped by the forcesthat are inside you
come on up to the house
well you're high on topof your mountain of woe
come on up to the house
well you know you should surrender
but you can't let go
you gotta come on up to the house(Chorus)


Sarah did a stellar version in the Sept 26 installment of

She's an 18 year old girl on the rise, and you got to hear her do this Tom Waits song.

Some of you know Waits was Rudy Newton in Ironweed, and if you are not familiar with that great character, it's your loss.
