    My friend Peter Jones, an artist from Woodstock, whose guitar Dylan once borrowed and played at a party, always wondered if the song was about him.

    Going Down To Old Woodstock, by Van Morrison.

    This Shirt – Mary Chapin Carpenter

    his shirt was a pillow for my head
    On a train through Italy
    This shirt was a blanket beneath the love
    We made in Argeles
    This shirt was lost for three whole days
    In a town near Buffalo
    ‘Till I found the locker key
    In a downtown Trailways bus depot

    Left off “Blue Eagle Jail” by Dan Rice c.1850. Written to “honor” the Monroe County Jail he was locked up in. Still played by traditional banjo players.
