My Canoe- Chestnut circa 1976

Some people said worried blues ain’t tough
Some people said the worried blues ain’t tough
But if they don’t kill you they’ll handle you mighty rough

    You’ll meet many just like me
    upon life’s busy street
    With shoulders stooped and heads bowed low
    and eyes that stare in defeat
    Poor souls that live within the past
    where sorrow plays all parts
    Where a living death is all that’s left
    for men with broken hearts

    You have no right to be the judge
    to criticize and condemn
    Just think but for the grace of God
    it would be you instead of him
    One careless step a thoughtless deed
    and then the misery starts
    And to those who weep
    death comes cheap
    these men with broken hearts

    Oh so humble you should be
    when they come passing by
    For it’s written that the greatest men
    never get too big to cry
    Some lose faith in love and life
    when sorrow shoots her darts
    And with hope all gone
    they walk alone
    these men with broken hearts

    You’ve never walked in that man’s shoes
    or saw things through his eyes
    Or stood and watched
    with helpless hands
    while the heart inside you dies
    Some were paupers some were kings
    and some were masters of the arts
    But in their shame they’re all the same
    these men with broken hearts

    Life sometimes can be so cruel
    that a heart will pray for death
    God why must these living dead
    know pain with every breath ?
    So help your brother along the road
    no matter where he starts
    For the God that made you made them too
    these men with broken hearts

    What a beautiful canoe!
    Just what I needed to make me feel better.
    I really know how to “drive” a canoe and can’t wait to jump into it.
    Thanks for this charming picture,

  4. I love this photo of your canoe and I would like to know if I can use it as inspiration in a painting.
