Lyrics

It was raining hard in 'Frisco,
I needed one more fare to make my night.
A lady up ahead waved to flag me down,
She got in at the light.

God Rest his SOUL !!! GREAT ARTIST ENTERTAINER STORY TELLER, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY A GREAT HUMANITARIAN !!! His last two concerts were scheduled for the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. The BEST CONCERT VENUE IN AMERICA !!! MANY MANY MANY OF THE BEST HAVE PLAYED THERE !!!! OTHERS WHO HAVEN'T SHOULD, JUST BECAUSE OF IT'S HISTORY AND TO BE REMEMBERED FOR PREFORMING THERE !!!!

Wow, I don't think any comment I can make about this song would illustrate what I am trying to say better than Mr. Van Buren's comment below. Serious stuff.

I absolutely love this song, his best in my opinion. "I stuffed the bill in my shirt" is one of the most personal and raw lines I ever heard. What a great lyric. It is so sad he died so young. This song really affected me as a teen and now, almost 40 years later, it still does. The past meets the present is a rough thing to deal with at times and he makes it very clear, sad, and real.
