For The Highwaymen Of Heaven (Johnny, Waylon, Roy)


Well Jesus thought he'd got me
thought he'd laid my body down to rest,
I'm gonna rise my body up tonight
going to sit with the Indian chiefs

Going to have visions
of walking the road home again
to see where it all began

I'll walk with people I used to know
let them know I'm safe and well
tell them about the gates of heaven

Tell them I've started a band with,
Waylon Jennings and Roy Orbison
and that Elvis wants to join

Jesus thought he'd got me
thought he'd laid me down to rest

Ain't no grave can hold my body down



RIP Johnny, Waylon, Roy

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this after listening to Aint No Grave (Can Hold My Body Down)
by Johny Cash. Maybe this is what he would say if we could hear him.
Two other singer song writers in the poem, Waylon and Roy, would maybe
say the same. Both was great friends of Johnny's.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
