MUNGO'S BLUE UMBRELLA
"Blue umbrella Rest upon my shoulder
Hide the pain While the rain makes up my mind
Well, my feet are wet From thinking this thing over and
its been so long since I've felt the warm sunshine..."
Mungo had nothing for John to sign...so he did the only thing a Mungo would do..... had
John sign his tattoo....of a blue umbrella. Even thought it was freezing at the
Strawberry fest...(notice Bear has on heavy
clothing and a cap) ... Mungo refused to put his shirt on.... see as "Vanna"
Bear points out the letters of John Prine's fresh autograph under Mungo's Blue Umbrella
(nippy huh Mungo?)(good thing we didn't get any "nippy pics" or the kiddies
couldn't see this)
Yep, that's a positive Prine ... under a tattoo of a Blue Umbrella
yep...Mungo's nuts about John Prine's music.... yep...he's at a tattoo
... nope - he is not drunk....
Now there is
John Prine forever
under his Blue Umbrella resting upon Mungo's shoulder
Okay, so now you know...you saw it....it's real...and our Mungo
has proved to us
that you could never have too much John Prine....

"The B/W photo's were taken when I was a senior in High school in 1973. I was in a
photography class and they were the first B/W photo's I had ever taken. I wish the quality
were better. They were taken at the "Troubador" in L.A. That is the club where
Jackson Browne, the Eagles, Randy Newman etc. all got their starts. The color
photograph was taken at the "Roxy" on Hollywood. He was promoting "Bruised
Orange" album at the time. Note the Hawaiin shirt. These were taken before he started
