The Story

John Hartford used to play the banjo and preach a little. Here’s the lyrics to one of his songs which served as a partial inspiration for this work. There’s more to the story but I’ll leave that open for speculation.

One day about twenty-five years from now, When we've all grown old from a-wondering how, Oh we'll all sit down at the city dump, And talk about the Goodle Days. Oh you'll pass the joint and I'll pass the wine, And anything good from a-down the line. A lot of good things went down one time, Back in the Goodle Days. And the Good Old Days are past and gone. A lot of good people have done gone on. That's my life when I sing this song about Back in the Goodle Days Sometimes I get to thinkin' that we're almost done, And there ain't nothin' left that we can figure out. And I guess it must have seemed a lot more like that Back in the Goodle Days, But when ya gotta go, ya gotta go. There's always somebody don'tcha know, A-hangin' round a-sayin' "Well I told you so", Back in the Goodle Days. And the Good Old Days are past and gone. A lot of good people have done gone on. That's my life when I sing this song about Back in the Goodle Days Oh we'll all join hands and we'll gather round, When that old guitar starts to make that sound. A lot of good things went down downtown, Back in the Goodle Days. Squeezin' love with the people that we hadn't even met, Out for anything that we could get. Oh we did it then and we'll do it yet, Back in the Goodle Days.”
