Nobody Knows It But Me

There's a place that I travel
When I want to roam,
And nobody knows it but me

The roads don't go there
And the signs stay home
And nobody knows it but me

It's far far away
And way way afar
It's over the moon and the sea

And wherever you're going
That's wherever you are
And nobody knows it but me

With apolgies to Mr. O'Leary ...

NOBODY GETS IT BUT ME

There’s a poem that they’re using
That sounds kind of old
And nobody gets it but me.

They shot in some place
That looks mighty cold
And nobody gets it but me.

It’s way way too arty
And art art too weighty
Excuse me, but I’ve got to pee.

And whatever you’re hearing
That’s what they’re saying
And nobody gets it but me.
-- Larry O’Patrick

I start to get a dark suspicion that a lot of lovers of poetry have a bit of problems with modern technology.

And that while mr. O'Leary proves that the two CAN go together. Congrats.

Suggestion for the maintainers: maybe you can change the name of "flat view" to "READ ALL MESSAGES" in red or purple maybe?

I'll give you a hint...he drove a Firebird and carried a gun on a late 70's TV series.

Can I assume that you have all been to this website by now:
[www.filmimaging.com] /> It has the story, the words and you can view (and listen to) the commercial.
I can't believe I found you guys. I've been trying so hard to find the words to this commercial. This reminds me of close encounters when people are mysteriously drawn to the tower. Anyway, thanks for the help.

A friend of mine swears he heard this poem when he was in grade school. It's probably copyrighted. Do you recall that it sounds like anything you've ever heard before? I, too, thought I'd learned it somewhere in my childhood.

Hello, Patrick;

I love your poem and each time I hear it I stop whatever I'm doing and watch the commercial... and James Garner totally sets it off.
I have a friend who has been arguing incessantly with me saying that he'swears' he heard it in grade school????!!!duh..
Please freak him out and send him an e-mail. I told him it's definately not Longfellow, or any of the traditionals.

"Nobody Knows It But Me"

Spoken by James Garner.

There's a place that I travel
When I want to roam,
And nobody knows it but me.
The roads don't go there
And the signs stay home,
And nobody knows it but me.
It's far far away
And way way afar,
It's over the moon and the sea,
And wherever you're going
that's wherever you are.
And nobody knows it but me

LOVE the Jeep poem...

Haven't you all noticed that the first time you hear a song that later becomes a huge hit, it feels like you know it already? I think the same thing is happening with Patrick O'Leary's poem. It seems to resonate with so many people. I bet psychology has some name for this phenomenon.

From [phrases.shu.ac.uk] />
'I was looking for the origins of the quote "No matter where you go, there you are." It first captured my attention in the cult classic movie "Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension" '

This film was released in 1984. Could it be the inspiration for Patrick's advertising copy?

There was a TV show in the early 1970s called 'McLoud' (sp?). This was one of his favorite tag lines.

I remember Dennis Weaver in McCLOUD ... but I didn't watch it much and I don't remember him saying "Wherever you go, there you are."

It certainly sounds like the kind of thing he would say.

From [www.tvtome.com] McCloud is a keen and brilliant investigator who garbs his talents in a Stetson and a sheepskin coat—"there you go" is his byword.

I assume the name McCloud was originally the Scottish McLeod. I remember Dennis Weaver in Gunsmoke - "Mr Dillon, Mr Dillon, we got us a problem!"


Re: CHEVY TAHOE COM'L
Posted by: -Les- (---.trlck.ca.charter.com)

McCloud, the same Dennis Weaver Henry, always said "There you go!"
I think we have to give Patrick O'Leary credit for "Wherever you go, there you are."
