5. nothing like a little irreverance
as a pal is trying to envoke a momentary, serious moment.

Darn thing about the net - you can send the intent - but you can't shape how it might be recieved... :-)

6. Well, you know with me...
You have your hands full. :evilgrin: :spank:

Wasn't trying to ruin your moment... and I think it's pretty damn serious how fast money disappears these days. :o

9. Indeed it is
and will be a political cudgel to be used in upcoming elections...

but....

Have you seen my good friend Bobby?
Can you tell me, where he's gone?

I thought I saw him walking
Over the Hill
With Abraham, Martin and John

3. I just looked around
and they were gone...

few songs can bring tingles to my spine everytime I hear them - or conjour up the song in my mind, as this one does.

8. I often do some work in a store that is stuck in the 60's
musicly. The loop tape that they play often includes that song. I have to spend several hours there at a time and I hear it at least once every time I am there lately.

I heard it last week when I was there and I found myself tearing up right there in the store.


I love that song too.

7. that line - on this thread
is the one that gave me physical chills... knew it would happen somewhere (the song always does) just didn't know where/when. Usually it takes until the verse with Martin.

10. Yeah, the verse with Martin was the one that got me the most.
I always felt like the song was already written, and then Martin was tragically included.

A sad, tragic balance.

14. I know what you mean
Anybody here seen my old friend Abraham?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed lotta people but it seems the good they die young
You know I just looked around and he's gone

Anybody here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed lotta people but it seems the good they die young
I just looked around and he's gone


Anybody here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed lotta people but it seems the good they die young
I just looked around and he's gone

Didn't you love the things that they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
And we'll be free
Some day soon, it's gonna be one day

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill
With Abraham, Martin, and John

12. I posted this a couple of weeks ago!
Then I downloaded three versions: Marvin Gaye, Leonard Nimoy, and, of course, Dion.

I'm just corny enough to like all of them. :)

16. He doesn't have a great voice
But he did manage to carry the tune and pull off triplets.

I downloaded it from Soul Seek. Go for it.
