It's A Shame About Ray

Lyrics

I've never been too good with names.
The cellar door was open, I could never stay away.
I know it's prob'ly not my place.
It's either or, I'm hoping for a simple way to say.

Sound like The Pretenders - Back On The Chain Gang a little bit.

Great melody and the lyrics allow you to explore their meaning. After someone close to you dies their memory is still there in the cellar of your mind. We go back every once in awhile and the anguish remains until
we place the cobwebs back in place. This song is deep.

i bought this TAPE when it came out and it didnt even have Mrs Robinson on it yet. So i requested it on the radio and waited to record it. Hands down my fav album of the 90's and definitely in the top 3 of my life.

except for this great song that came from it, it's a shame about ray. when someone dies, the family goes out and buys a headstone. and then they discover that the government or some charitable organization provides one free--a much nicer one. Or sometimes one person dies and before the headstone can be put up, his wife also dies, so you have to discard the existing headstone and get a new one with both names on it. Where does the discarded headstone go? In the cellar.

If it's big enough, when your worthless out of work friends come by to drink your beer and smoke your chronic, one or two of them can sit on the headstone. Maybe Ray's relatives sell the house and move on, but they won't take the headstone. It's too big and heavy, so it becomes a fixture in the cellar. Your worthless out of work friends ask who Ray was and you shake your head sadly and say, "It's a shame about Ray."
