She’s So Tough

“She’s so Tough”This was the song going through my head over and over when I first met my wife. She was tough too, so tough. Scary tough. Scared the hell out of most guys. We went at it tooth and nail, everything, just wild. That was 1979. Damn, man, going on 36 years ago. She’s still tough, too. And everytime I hear this song, I think of her, and us, and back then. And everytime I think of us, even now, I hear this song. Poor Willie DeVille’s gone, though, fucking cancer…….but I wish I could have told him what I just told all of you.
