John Prine In Concert
 
Had the chance to see John Prine in concert last night and it was amazing. He played for 2 hours and 45 minutes straight. He is a great entertainer, telling many stories and humorous tales while on stage, as well as singing those amazing songs that he wrote.

It is easy to forget all of the great songs that he has written, so it was great to be able to hear him perform them all (well most of them) last night. I really liked the fact that most of the concert was just him and his guitar. It is great to go to a concert and not have the vocals be overpowered by the music.

If you have a chance to see him in concert, trust me: go see him!

I have a very long story behind this, but John Prine and I are friends. We were not close enough that he would recognize me.

I was introduced to him at a house party, I was literally shaking. I told my date "I can't meet him, that;s John fucking Prine." He invited me over for drinks, and we played a few rounds of golf, and he's just a dude,

Prine & Stephen Colbert singing "That's the way the world goes round" back in 2016. They didn't air it on the show, they just uploaded it on 4/1/20 after Prine's Coronavirus news broke.

Roger Waters pays tribute to John Prine by performing Prine's song "Paradise"



I think this was a live stream on April 12th

lyrics:
Spoiler:

"Paradise"

When I was a child my family would travel
Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
And there's a backwards old town that's often remembered
So many times that my memories are worn.

[Chorus:]
And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River where Paradise lay
Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away

Well, sometimes we'd travel right down the Green River
To the abandoned old prison down by Airdrie Hill
Where the air smelled like snakes and we'd shoot with our pistols
But empty pop bottles was all we would kill.

[Chorus]

Then the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man.

[Chorus]

When I die let my ashes float down the Green River
Let my soul roll on up to the Rochester dam
I'll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waitin'
Just five miles away from wherever I am.

[Chorus]

This was put up last week. John's last song which was recorded in his living room. Pretty cool.
