I just read a news article that John Prine passed away due to complications from COVID-19.  He's famous for writing a number of songs, including Paradise. It's one of my favorites performed on the dulcimer and I know the song resonates with a lot of folks.  Rest in peace, John.

This song was released in 1971.  I was just getting out of high school and mustaches and long hair were the way many of us managed our appearance.  John's songs tell wonderful stories.  If he would have made it through, I wonder if he would have composed a virus song.  It would be a great story song to add to his long list.

John was a talented wordsmith. His songs were masterful. There are so many of his songs that make my list of favorites. He provided me and others many hours of pleasure as we listened to his albums. He will be missed.
