Less Famous

When J. F. Kennedy died, I was travelling in a car To a job in the countryside, That was not especially far. The car radio was quite clear When J. F. Kennedy died, It was easy enough to hear Of political homicide, Otherwise assassination, For which no one was ever tried, When J. F. Kennedy died, Creating fascination. He had been in a car, like me, With wife Jacqueline by his side, But I was less famous than he, When J. F. Kennedy died.

1963, remember it well, I was outside outside my parents house when my brothers friend told us he'd been assassinated. Can see it clear as day. Tom

Thanks, Tom, I suppose it's stuck in most people's memories.
