Dedicated to Granny Todd Smith


Grandma told me stories about the Crescent County Faire / Billy brought his pony / All the girls wore braided hair / Grandpa drove the Buick with the trailer hitched to rear / So Billy watched his pony with the highway in its hair / Wind in Hair / Wind in Hair / Tossing colored bean bags through a hole cut in a chair / Win a dozen tickets, get the gold fish or the bear / Last year the fish died before Christmas time was here / Stella thought the reason was her brother always stared / Brothers always stare / Brothers always stare / Super secret circle, two o’clock under bleacher stairs / All the older people occupied with their auction wares / Spin the bottle just right, toward the girl with the curly hair / I go with her forever, cross my hear, I swear / Truth or dare / Truth or dare / Wind in hair / Brothers always stare
