While working at my first job in the roughest area of Kansas City I ran across many strange characters and over time I became to know some of them. I met drunks, hookers, thugs, you name it. Many of those folks became friends who watched out for me in a part of town that was crime ridden.

Across from work was a corner market that was robbed at least four or five times a year. Sitting on the corner next to the market was an old man who was never without his paper bag containing cheap whiskey. The only time I saw him move was to go into the market only to emerge with a new bag.

They called him Mr. Jonesy (lonely Mr. Jonesy)

At the time I was into music and lyrics so I wrote one which I titled "Mr. Jonesy". That was thirty years ago and the song is long gone now. I never wrote it down or back in those days taped it. At the time it was one of the few favorites of mine that I had written.

I do remember bits of it, so after noodling around tonight that old song came to mind.

I got the same problem...luckily I recorded some of my stuff on casettes in the 80ies, and I still got the old lyrics book. But quite a few are lost forever...never mind. THis could be a nice template, and the chord sequence at the end is almost 100% similar to something I used to play in 85 or so. :D
