    i heard it fer the 1st time other day and thought dang someone had me in mind when they wrote that song.
    Its a texas artist's (jason allen)song called jon boat blues.
    first line of the song goes:
    "i was born in a jon boat with a cane pole in my hand"

    if yall get a chance ta listen to the whole song, i think youll like it.
