Best 100 Songs of All Time

       The song, written by Kris Kristoferson and sung by both Janis Joplin and Willie Nelson to perfection has a unique place in popular music due to its almost nostalgic look at people who don't fit into the mainstream of whatever human society  they happen to be in.  The song eloquently tells the tale of a couple of transients seeking some kind of place to settle down and call home.  You get a feeling that they never will.  These people  parted company in Salinas after traveling all the way from the south, generally in the back of undoubtedly several trucks, still searching for a place to remain for at ieast a while.  They are lonely people and the song suggests they always will be.
