Ode To The Great John Prine

Ode To The Great John Prine 4/19/18 I think John Prine has finally learned to write like me...Because I hear… my thoughts in every song he sings...It’s funny how he knows...Whatever is on my mind... but that's bestest thing... about the GREAT JOHN PRIIIIIINE... He makes me cry... He makes me laugh.....
