The legend of Rock Out Guy

Feb 22 2011 Published by under poetry

there was a man who sat by the old highway
and he'd rock out every day
by the pier he would play
on his aging steel frame
and he'd rock out every day

alone he would sway by the old grocery store
and he'd rock out every day
with his old fender amp
plugged into a street lamp
he would rock out every day

he'd carry his load down West Beaufort Road
a lonely streak of gray
now the old pier is gone
and so is his song
the man that rocked out all day

we never knew your name
but still you found fame
when you played by the old highway
