"This singsong woman here tonight (in the nursing home): I want to ask if she knows my mother ( the mother of the patient listening whose mother used to play guitar and sing professionally), what with them both having light-brown hair, both playing the guitar and singing "Side by Side."
'Oh we ain't got a barrel of money/ maybe we're ragged and funny/ but we'll travel the road/ sharing our load/ side by side.'
'Do you know my mother?' I ask the woman.
She scowls and looks around for someone who might rescue her. She's got songs for us, but nothing else."
Linda McCollough Moore, "On My Way Now", The Sun, April, 2014
