TITLE : STREETS OF NORTHERN VA. My consciousness fell at about the age of five. I woke up one day and knew that I was alive, in the streets of Northern Virginia, yeh, yeh, yeh, in the days of my youth, I tried for a little fame, then came my brothers and a sister, we all laid our claim, we all looked a little different, but inside we were the same, in the streets of northern Virginia. Oh, yeh yeh, oh yeh, yeh. Frankie met a girl, to young to change her name, but the baby came just the same, in the streets of Northern Virginia. I got a little older, went to work and found out, that most of the people would try to jerk me around in the streets of Northern Virginia. Then I started writing, It’s never come to much; I should have been a doctor, a lawyer, or such, in the beltway loop of Northern Virginia, Yeh, yeh, yeh, now I’m getting older, lots of friends are gone, all I’ve got left is to write this song, in the hills of Front Royal Virginia, yeh, yeh, yeh. Frankie The Earthman.

A tribute to the genius of Bruce Springsteen and his song “Streets of Philadelphia.”

This tribute conceived while walking the Appalachian Trail, near Skyline, Va.
