Jim Potts in his ever-readable blog ~ The Blue Guitar
A shears-man of sorts. The day was green.
They said, 'You have a blue guitar,
You do not play things as they are.'
The man replied, 'Things as they are
Are changed upon the blue guitar.'
|Patio picking with Sam|
And they said then, 'But play, you must,
A tune beyond us, yet ourselves,
A tune upon the blue guitar
Of things exactly as they are.' "

Jim modestly 'spares' us his version of BPDG and more's the pity because he's good.
