1. Aberdeen Vista

From the recording The Book of Strongman


Aberdeen Vista

Forty-nine twenty-four was the address on the door
Friends and toys adorned the row house floor
Charlie’s resting on the porch, Alice dropped in to explore
Becky came to play today and more
Postage stamp of lawn
Horses been and gone
Memories passed on
Oh Aberdeen Vista
Neighbor’s roses sweet and fine from a garden good and kind
Brother to a flower was sublime
I remember on the fourth feeling lonely and divorced
from a world that I could not endorse
‘Neath the holly tree lie the bones of thee
Watch as we run free in Aberdeen Vista
Clipper ships have sailed
Politicians jailed
Birthday cards were mailed
Locust on a string
Orange and black birds sing
Now we live as kings in Aberdeen Vista
Aberdeen Vista
