No one swims


Singer/songwriter James McMurtry’s song “We Can’t Make It Here Anymore” sums it all up:

In Dayton Ohio or Portland Maine
Or a cotton gin out on the great high plains
That’s done closed down along with the school
And the hospital and the swimming pool

  1. Great Image, clicked through to the James McMurtry song (I’d not heard of him before) really liked it, although I’m a sucker for the sound of a 12 string. 🙂


  2. Kinda sad. No pool should go dry.


  3. You have an amazing array of song lyrics in your head to draw from!
