The banks of the river run through my hometown
As a boy I ran the dirt roads and I scraped my knees
Well, they paved the roads eventually
With neon signs and car dealerships and diners

    Maggie, totally agreed. If you take a good look, there is always something to be grateful for.

    In the years to come, my generation will discover the lyrics "I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness," and believe they each have an independent claim to that sentiment. And we will all be wrong.

    "Somewhere the sky hangs like a blanket, shoot it with my capgun to make it seem like stars...." I love that line. I don't even know why but I love it.

    Having grown up between Fayetteville/Jacksonville/Wilmington N.C. as well as Atl., Ga. I totally relate to this song. Check out Ryan doing "oh my sweet carolina" on you tube. Excellent Song.......................
