This is a cover of Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell but I change the words a bit and call it 'Big White Taxi'. I dedicate this song to Dave Lynas, a central figure in the cigar box guitar community, who passed away recently. This song always reminded me of him and I felt like this was the right thing to do. He will be missed.

I appreciate that Doug... and it certainly does. I sure do miss him.

A fitting tribute like only you can do Kale! Dave’s memory lives on.

Thanks John. It's so sad to lose him but always great to remember.

Aw, I thought of Dave a time or three today.   Happy thoughts.  Our friend had a good and generous life.  I know what you mean about feeling like you knew him.  Oh, yeah.  I know this song once I see Joni.   Super nice, your Kaleness.   Good choice and song.  

I am out in the shed on a beautiful, sunny fall day.  (Came in to mark some frets).   What a great couple of 2, 3, or 4 hobbies we share and shared with Dave.  God bless.  Thanks.
