Clear Lake....

....Iowa, a place where I can't choose a side,
Clear Lake's the place "where the music died",
They saw the last performance, of the three,
Big Bopper, Richie Valens and Buddy Holly.

We didn't even know, when we made a choice,
that this is the place where music lost a voice,
we're glad that we came, Abby and I,
but I shed a tear, and I seldom cry.

Bottom:  A memorial at the crash site.
