These Boots


Lee Hazelwood is the songwriter who wrote these great lines: "these boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do, one of these days these boots will walk all over you." Nancy Sinatra made it a hit in the swinging 60's, the bass-line is one of the great driving riffs in pop music. Listen to it today, and it will stick in your head like an ice-pick.

Anyway, Lee is 77, he has cancer, he's getting ready to die. Here he is reflecting on the hereafter: "I think that any part of you that's good or interesting might go back to this collective something that started it all off. And that's as deep of an explanation as I can give you."
