The Ballad of Blanche Barrow

Inspired by my earlier post about Bonnie & Clyde's sister-in-law playing the uke in prison, Craig Robertson has written The Ballad of Blanche Barrow.

Okay, so full disclosure: Craig is my partner-in-crime here on Ukulelia. Nonetheless, I have to tell you that I had a Hemingway moment this morning when he sent me the link. After reading Ulysses, Papa wrote to Sherwood Anderson:
"Joyce has a most goddamn wonderful book..."

Well, Craig has a most goddamn wonderful song...

I reckon the poetry writing Bonnie Parker herself would have enjoyed that one. Really fine work.
