Written upon hearing the terrible news about my dear old friend from Sturgis, MI: David Fergeson. Last summer on a trip home, I ran into another dear old friend, Leanne; we decided to go have a couple beers at the Hillcrest tavern out on US-12 to catch up. I was telling her old Fergie stories, how I lost touch with him for years and how I finally found and then visited him in Grand Junction Colorado not too long ago. As I spoke, her face suddenly turned white as she realized I hadn’t heard the news. I still don’t know the whole story, but evidently he killed himself about a month after Christmas mostly due to a false accusation. I always worried about Fergie. In high school, I used to hide him out in our basement when he would run away from home. When he finally left town for good, I damn near went with him! I wasn’t far behind.

Little White Cross

Another man done gone
Another man done gone
He never hurt no one
Now we get this song

Another man done gone
Another man done gone
You shoulda put down that gun
Just got out and run

Men collect bodies
women collect souls
Now there’s another little white cross
On the side of the road

Where did you go?
I loved you so
I saw that hole
Hole in your soul

Another man done gone
Another man done gone
So your woman let you down
Now you’re in the ground

Another man done gone
Another man done gone
Now you hurt everyone
What do we tell your son?

Men collect bodies
women collect souls
Now there’s another little white cross
On the side of the road

Where did you go?
I loved you so
I saw that hole
Hole in your soul
