Blackbird

"I need for you to do this song with me," Skipper said, inclining his head toward me, and sang, "Long ago, a young man sits, and plays his wait-ting game." His voice was soft and raspy, not really pretty - he's not a singer. I harmonized on the verses, and on the choruses, I came in on the obligato, the part Joni Mitchell sings on the record.

Joni is also mentioned on page 38.
