Alone, so alone....

That'd make a good song. Lessee.

Alone, all alone
By the old mill stream (gotta get that country image in there)
All alone in a crowded room (and the urban angst & ennui)

That's enough. Don't want to overdue it.

Okay, here's another coming...Yeah, yeah! I can flesh it out later....

She went down last October (? Lightfoot used November, stick to Oct.)
In a pouring, driving rain
The skipper he'd been drinkin'
And the mate she felt no pain (might want to make mate male)
Piled up on Five Mile Rock and she was dealt her awful blow (ain't right yet)
And the "Exxon Valdez" settled low (use different name for ship!!)

Gotta work on these. Might be money in 'em, which I will, of course, share with Mom and the kids.
