15-08-26 The Crow

The crow on the cradle
The black on the white
Somebody’s baby, is born for a fight
The crow on the cradle
The white on the black
Somebody’s baby is not coming back
Sang the crow on the cradle
Sang the crow on the cradle

8-6-14 69th Anniversary

The sheep’s in the meadow
The cow’s in the corn
Now is the time for a child to be born
You’ll laugh at the moon and you’ll cry for the sun
And if it’s a boy he’ll carry a gun
Sang the crow on the cradle

And if it should be that this baby’s a girl
Never you mind if her hair doesn’t curl
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
A shadow above her wherever she goes
Sang the crow on the cradle

The crow on the cradle
The black on the white
Somebody’s baby is born for a fight
The crow on the cradle
The white on the black
Somebody’s baby is not coming back
Sang the crow on the cradle

Bring me my gun and I’ll shoot
That bird dead
That’s what your mother and
Father once said
A crow on the cradle what can we do
This is the thing I must leave up to you
Sang the crow on the cradle

6-4-13 The Bronx Shoreline-Riverdale

Before heading out to Jackson Heights Saturday afternoon, I spent the morning in the Bronx, the Riverdale section to be precise. There is only one authorized way to get to the river in the Bronx, that I am aware of, and I was not near it so over the tracks I went.

It was a beautiful morning…

The tracks

The tracks

A piece of train?

Pay attention

Made it

Looking south to the city

Da train, boss. Da train.
