a poem/song about a man who disappeared in my hometown
they say you live in the river so blue
where the current took you in
they've ravaged the water & looked for clues
but they'll never find you

bobby jones bobby jones bobby jones
they can drain the river but they won't find your bones
because I know, like you did, that the world can go insane
and you'd like to runaway & begin again

the townsfolk gathered at the river's edge
where they say you went in at the rocky ledge
they'd all in disbelief how this must be a dream
and all the weeds and flowers began to grow down next to the stream
but i know your secret
i know your scheme

bobby jones, bobby jones, bobby jones
they could drain every river but they won't find your bones
because you're living a brand new life in a brand new kind of world
but to everyone else you'll become a myth
and a mystery for the river to hold
