Safety Music Moment - John Prine and Safety Joe

18Apr

 

There just aren't a lot of songs about safety people.  In fact I only know of one.  

I love John Prine.   I mean it.   I love him so much.  Mr. Prine has gotten me through most of my life - his songs are simple, his lyrics are amazing.   He's a gem of a song writter and performer.
