talk ‘tween dad and brother…

that boy never settled down…,the old man said…,never did…, a thick Texas swagger told a story…,,hee-hee…’member the time he took-off for good…said he’d never be back…somethin’ ’bout wantin’ to see the country…whole world maybe…

yeah…I ‘member…

one day he’d be in New York…the next Vermont…Montreal…hell…one day he called from Los Angeles…just zig-zaggin’ ’round…goin’ no-where really…

yep…he never really went anywhere…

he was up in Chicago for the longest of time…he stuck there…

oh yeah…

but he messed that up too…married some mobster’s daughter…some dago girl…had ’em a job…a car…makin’ somethin’ of himself…

jobs an’ cars are important…

not to him they ain’t…damndest thing I ever seen…boy’d rather walk…take trains…always takin’ trains…says that car was an albatross…round his neck…stifled ’em or somethin’…I don’t get it…

he’s different alright…

some kinda’ gypsy…a madman really…all that wanderin’ ’round…an’ for what…what does searchin’ for somethin’ getcha…

don’t know…

think we’ll see ’em again…

hard ta’ say…people change…

hell…that boy ain’t changin’….
