Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 705 (New Orleans To Memphis)

We left New Orleans in a river boat-

To enjoy the scenery, to keep afloat.

.

To enjoy the river, as many have done before-

Never to miss a moment, never to experience

the mode of bore.

.

To pass by Baton Rouge, the capitol city-

With many more sights, to view and see.

.

Then to bypass Natchez and Vicksburg too-

Louisiana is gone, and now into Mississippi,

for another breath of fresh air, to acrue.

.

Here we are docking, in Tennessee, at Memphis,

at last-

The city of the blues, in the midst, of the

glorious past.

.

Off to Graceland, is where we went-

To visit where Elvis is buried, and where part of

his life was spent.

.

We left New Orleans, in a riverboat-

To enjoy the scenery, to keep afloat.

And others remind us of things that we used to know!

80 Years Old (2015)

It’s hard to believe that this year marked Elvis’ 80th birthday. Of course, to many of us he’ll always be 42 years old,

for that is what happens when folks pass away early.

.

Whether you like him or not, he did make quite an impact. I remember when the 33 Chilean miners after being

underground, for 68 days, asked for crucifixes, and Elvis music.

.

Too many stories, to put in this letter, but while watching a documentary about Muscle Shoals, Alabama, I came

across another one.

.

Back in the 1800’s Te-lah-nay, a member of the Yuchi Tribe was forced off to the Indian Territory of Oklahoma.

While she was growing up in the Muscle Shoals area, her tribe called part of the Tennesse River, the Singing River,

as it made a sound of a woman singing. When she arrived in Oklahoma, there was no sound like that there. She

stayed one winter and managed to get back to her home.

.

In the same area is a couple of recording studios, that highlighted such amazing musical talent. To name a few,

Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Wilson Pickett, and even the Rolling Stones.

.

The Rolling Stones had heard that sound coming from across the pond, and went to Muscle Shoals, to record Brown Sugar.

.

The in studio musicians were called the Swampers, and they too were in much demand.

.

As the list went on and on, I had to wonder if Elvis could have been involved in this magical place. The story makes

you want to go and touch the water. The sound is no longer there as the river has been re-routed.

.

Lo and behold they flashed Sam Phillips picture on the screen. He was born in the area. He later moved to Memphis,

and Elvis one day walked into his Sun Record Studios.
