More Lion For Real - Gregory Corso's Story

[Gregory Corso]

Another Lion For Real sampler. How about "Gregory Corso's Story"?

Allen's description -  "A little anecdote the poet (Gregory) Corso told me around 1951", "Bill Frisell's delicate setting turns around  this memory of buried innocence." 

Bill Friesell, guitar, Marc Ribot, banjo, Ralph Carney, clarinet, Steve Swallow, bass

Gregory Corso's Story

The first time I went
to the country to New Hampshire
when I was about eight
there was a girl
I always used to paddle with a plywood stick.

We were in love,
so the last night there
we undressed in the moonlight
and showed each other our bodies,
then we ran singing back to the house.
Moonlight by Maxfield Parrish
