Christmas Present

Oh they say it's that time of year

Full of joy and Christmas cheer

But Baby you're no longer near

This holiday leaves a forgotten tear,

 

Children playing in the snow

Baby don't you know

Now the shadows begin to grow

Those old feelings lay me low,

 

Just as snowmen melt and fade away

You just had to leave and couldn't stay

Now the warmth has all but gone away

I would wish this upon no one on Christmas Day,

 

Christmas was not your time of year

Oh how you made that so very clear

It's become an excuse to have another beer

Better than to endure another smear,

 

I remember Christmas as a child

When my smile was so tender and mild

Presents beneath a tree so neatly piled

Yet life has left me confused and beguiled,

 

It all happened for a sad reason

This funny yule tide season

You'll forgive me I'm feeling a little blue

Merry Christmas to you, you, and you!

Merry Christmas to you, and to everyone else in the Tom Petty look=a=like stage production. Hey, they need a drummer too ... you guys could be like sort of hippy but somehow still Southern redneck but kind of cool anyway Elvis's ... have a great Christmas Doc, have a frickin beer or two, eggnog is nothing to get snockered on. 12 or 14 Lone Stars will do it though and Jesus may just show up even if Santa don't ... and, if you haven't yet I sincerely, and I do mean this, hope you find someone purty to share it with. Happy Saturnalia!

I know Orbison's dead. Did you like his Travelling Willburys work? 

Do you play with anyone? If not, what kind of music did you last play?

Ron Powell, thanks buddy you have a wonderful Christmas too man. I used to love to watch the old Universal Pictures when In was a kid. Scared the shit out of me! Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff, Bela Legosi, all classic films! That was a great clip! Back then they told a story nowadays it's all blood on the floor of the butcher shop and anatomy 101.

Kosher Yeah I loved the traveling Willburys great stuff! I remember one of the last MTV videos they mad all sitting around Jeff Lyne, Tom Petty, and a hat sitting on a chair signifying a ode to Roy who had probably just past away!
