Man at the Yellow Dog Depot


Yellow Dog Depot, Moorhead, Mississippi – 2008


Each time I look at this picture

I wonder “who is that guy?”

What could bring a man to this?

I just wonder why


To see such a sight

So close to that famous track

It reminds one of that first song

Yes, it takes one waaaaay back


A bluesy tune sure fits this scene

Sleeping off last night’s fun

Still got whisky for later on

And a bit of shade from the sun


The Yellow Dog rolls no more

The Southern now takes another route

But the blues is still in this place

And you know what I’m talking about
