The Winner

Lyrics

This old highway she's hotter than nine kinds of hell
The rides they is scarce as the rain
When you're down to your last shuck with nothing to sell
And too far away from the train

This old highway she's hotter than nine kinds of hell
The rides they is scarce as the rain
When you're down to your last shuck with nothing to sell
And too far away from the train

OOPS! It got away before the 'punch line'.
Yeah, I grew up 'looking up' to those older guys because they didn't lose fights.
And boy, could those guys fight.
No guns, no knives, just fists.
Bottom line: they all died of less than natural causes.
Although they're dead, their 'legend' lives.
I guess that makes them each
'The Winner'.
Or does it?!

I could listen to this song over and over.
I asked myself why I like it so much.
Then the answer occurred to me:
I grew up in the most urban part of New Haven and all of the 'men of respect' were 'Winners'.
'Whitey' was a winner.
'Midgey' was a winner.
'Pinocchio' was a winner.

'The Winner' by Shel Silverstein.
Of course.
Who else?!
"...my eyes still see and my nose still works and my teeth're still in my mouth.
And y'know I guess that makes me the winner".
Beautiful!
