“I’ll always thank the Lord
When my working day’s through
I get my sweet reward
To be alone with you.”
(Bob Dylan in To be alone with you)
“There is a gate through all must pass
We all must pass through it alone.
A gate none can bypass or skip
It is open from time ever.”
(J. Alfred in The gate inevitable)
“I asked my mama for fifteen cents,
see the elephant jump the fence.
He jumped so high, he touched the sky.
Never got back till the Fourth of July.
Walkin’ the dog,
just ‘a walkin’ the dog.
If you don’t know how to do it,
I’ll show you how to walk the dog.”
(Rufus Thomas in Walking the dog)
