Don't go...

I made a feast for you

Powder biscuits and sweet honey

Dark coffee and cream

Bees dream lilacs behind the shutters

The world is about to burst wide open

And you want to walk away?

You and that white line and black asphalt Route 66 James Dean dream

How about some Jimmy Dean sausages and hashbrowns?

No vinyl bar stools here and no rockin' wurlitzer
Just soft cushions you have to sink into

All the comfort you couldn't handle

Your slip 'n slide days are numbered

It's too late to die young

Front page news

Car wrapped around a tree

Slow down, take the back roads
See the world brand new right here in my arms
Dewbright and virgin green

Don't go...Oh, go on then...

James Dean's death affected me deeply as it did most teens of the 50s. I thought he was the coolest of the cool, and I still have a
fan shot somewhere amongst my belongings.
The comparison of his reckless, hurried attitude towards life...with the easy-going Jimmy Dean of country western fame is really a perfect contrast.
You are a talented lady, Ms Gayton.

A truly interesting piece, Linda, and I must admit that I've often had the itch to travel down old Route 66 many times myself.
Reviewed by Chanti Niven 3/4/2005
Whoah Linda, another 'hit' here.
How do you do it? I read these words with something approaching envy. It builds to such a climax and then you drop in those words '...oh go on then' and POW! Great stuff!

Route 66, I guess is a motorway.. Slooow down reeelax. Great message.

Well if they are destined to live in the fast lane the safety of your arms is sad. A poignant write here and so often repeated on the highways. But perhaps Barbara had a good answer too.
Reviewed by Barbara Terry 3/3/2005
If he had a dream like and it was me telling him, I would have said "well go on then but, don't have the police come back here telling you had died wrapped around a stupid tree somewhere, cause I told you not to go, but you insisted. Bye bye." May the Lord be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love, peace, & (((HUGS))) ... Barbie
