Writer's Block: Dynamite with a laser beam

What's your favorite line from a song, and why?




This one couldn't be easier:  "Cross the river, 'round the bend.  Howdy stranger so long friend".

If you spend anytime at all around musicians, at some point you are going to acquire a "theme song".  You walk into where they are playing and at some point someone is going to say hello by playing at least a few bars of your song.  Having lived a gypsy like existence, it didn't take long before I acquired "Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home".  While I love the whole song and its very interesting lyrics, it is the single line about being in a strange place for the first time among people you don't know, but making the effort so that when you do leave the farewells are genuine with the hope that someday you might return.

So here is the Judy Garland version though the song has been recorded by virtually every really good pop singer who has ever picked up a microphone.
