Ode to Hobo Jim
By Trish Thompson – AKA Princess Patricia
He definitely has a god given talent
To write those purely original songs
When he strums on his custom made guitar,
Covered with gold nuggets and Alaskan coins,
His thoughts are never afar
His heart is thorough Alaskan
As his wife can attest
And he sings as well as Nashville’s best
Whether he is entertaining in an school, bar, library, or any other venue, his written words are very rare
His songs still tough the heart’s of young and old
And his thoughts are bold.
He’s known as “The Alaskan Baladeer” as his songs come
From life experiences made in this great state.
Make plans to see a show or two where he sings
And tells his story of how each song came to be,
And you will walk away with a new found joy and
Appreciation of his talents, as I can guarantee.
