Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day.
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, woncha stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"


Levon Helm has passed.

I tried to name my son Levon last September and was voted down. This is very sad news.

I usually prefer Bob Dylan's renditions of his own songs, but I can't imagine anyone but Levon singing "When I Paint My Masterpiece."
