Weeble Be Good

Weeble Be Good

Weeble Be Good
Troy Eckhardt

Deep down Louisiana
        Do you remember, Weeble?
close to New Orleans
        That trip we took
Way back up in the woods
        in that beautiful blue Cadillac
among the evergreens
        with the shiny chrome?

There stood a log cabin
        The wind in our hair
made of earth and wood
        and the Burma Shave signs?
Where lived a country boy
        Our warm flannel shirts flapped
named Johnny B. Goode
        and the friendly bridge tender waved.

Who never ever learned
        Life was fine and the nostalgia was sweet.
to read or write so well
        Though not as sweet as it is to me now.
But he could play the guitar
        Now I live for the future time
just like a-ringin’ a bell.
        when we’ll ride together again.

Go Weeble Go.
