My poor dear brother Billy was arrested again. This time in Mobile Alabama on January 27, 2012. I don't think they're going to let him out this time.


There ain't no green grass in a U.S. state prison
There is no one to hold when you're sick for your wife
And each day out you'll pick, you'll pick rotten peaches
You'll pick rotten peaches for the rest of your life

Oh I've had me my fill of cocaine and pills
For I lie in the light of the Lord
And my home is ten thousand, ten thousand miles away
And I guess I won't see it no more

Mercy I'm a criminal, Jesus I'm the one
Rotten peaches rotting in the sun

Elton John 'Rotten Peaches'
