Once, while playing ball with his traveling companion, Delilah Dog, an ash-heavy cigarette dangling from his lip and a beat-up guitar propped against the idling RV, a passerby asked, “Sir, are you a vagabond?” To which Karp replied, “Well, I’m a songwriter and musician,so I guess the answer is yes.”
