White Limousine


Mostly I drove the white limousine on a Saturday afternoon-
from the bride’s house, to the church, and on to the reception-
then sometimes on Sundays to the airport for the honeymoon!
A call came in late one Saturday evening for a short trip-in the limo-
to the Empire Theatre from the Adelphi Hotel
I said I’d do it for the right price- and they said they’d pay me well!

The Lady came down the steps with some big guy and got into the car!
I looked at her beautiful face in the mirror-and I recognised a star!
‘Is it really you?’ I asked, as I opened the door to let her out, politely!
She pointed to the sign and said, ‘Honey, I’m appearing here twice nightly!’
Later when I checked the car I found a souvenir-a rhinestone from her sparkling gown!
I’ll make sure she gets it back- the next time Dolly Parton is in town!
