I’ve written several posts lately that are based upon songs I’d grown up with. When I saw today’s one-word prompt, “solitary,” I was reminded of yet another such song, Neil Diamond’s “Solitary Man.” The refrain of that song goes:
Don’t know that I will but until I can find me
A girl who’ll stay and won’t play games behind me
I’ll be what I am
A solitary man
I didn’t get married until I was 32, which, back in the day, was considered to be old.
But then I met a girl who I knew would stay and not play games behind me. We married. I am no longer a solitary man.
