Westerly's Virtu Arts Festival 2008. This street musician was wearing an AC/DC shirt while wailin' away Proud Mary.

"Left a good job in the city,

Workin' for the man every night and day,

And I never lost one minute of sleepin',

Worryin' bout the way things might have been.


Big wheel keep on turnin',

Proud mary keep on burnin',

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis,

Pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans,

But I never saw the good side of the city,

til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.


Rollin, rollin', rollin' on the river.

If you come down to the river,

Bet you gonna find some people who live.

You don't have to worry cause you have no money,

People on the river are happy to give.


Rollin, rollin', rollin' on the river.

Rollin, rollin', rollin' on the river.

Rollin, rollin', rollin' on the river."

It doesn't get much better...if only I could shoot as well as he played.

    The local Supermarket just put up a sign saying NO BUSKERS. Me? I love 70's stuff like this even though I was a baby of the 70's Bread, Eagles, Billy Joel and Helen Reddy all list in my music halls of fame. Thanks for this John!
