  • Dear friends
    You are angels and drunks
    You are magi
    Old friends

    You stuck a pin in the map I was in
    And this is a note for a road sign
    Cuttin' the breeze in this Tennessee sundown
    Came the sounds of the voices I know
    I've been pondering trees
    On the steeliest come down
    But now a moment I'm home

    I've got bluster enough
    For the sails of a clipper
    And the truth never frays a good yarn
    But it struck me to say while so far away
    You are with me today
    You are here are in my head, in my heart

    Dear friends
    You are angels and drunks
    You are magi
    Old friends

    You stuck a pin in the map I was in
    You are the stars I navigate home by Writer/s: CRAIG LEE POTTER, GUY EDWARD JOHN GARVEY, MARK ELLIS POTTER, MARK POTTER, PETER JAMES TURNER, RICHARD BARRY JUPP
