Thread Name: best single lines
Subject: RE: best single lines
John Prine's Paradise has a verse that's the most colorful description I can think of:
Well, sometimes we'd travel right down the Green River
To the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill
Where the air smelled like snakes and we'd shoot with our pistols
But empty pop bottles was all we would kill.
Well, it's not a single line, but it's a single sentence.
