Jackie and Ryan



- Hey, man.

- Hey. How you doing, George?

Great to see you.

Did you have a good ride?

Did you get in touch with Cowboy?

Not yet, I'm gonna swing by later.

You found some good spots?

Yeah, man.

Thank you. Thank you, folks.

We take requests and we take bills.

We prefer one over the other.

You guess which.

Thank you, miss.

- You guys are really good.

- Thank you.

You play any of your own stuff?

Just the classics. You know,

give the people what they want.

Why, though?

You ain't got nothing to say?

No, ma'am, not really.

- Dance all night?

- Let's do it.

I'm thinking it needs a "D".

You got any kind of student discount?

You a student?

Hey, Ryan... you got your student ID?


He doesn't have his ID with him

and I left mine in the car...

but come on, could I be

a month shy of my junior year?

I'm gonna give you ten percent,

but I don't want you back here

asking for picks or rosin

or any of that.

- You're a saint, ma'am.

- No problem.

That'll be $7.95.

Got mahogany sides and neck...

rosewood fret board,

vintage open-back tuning.

And she's got that spruce top,

which is really nice, too.


- Hey, you mind if I...

- No, go ahead.


We just got her. We haven't put

the tag on yet. You want a price?

That's okay.


Just a sec.

Mama, will you turn that TV down?

- My goodness. Come here.

- Hi.

- God, it is good to see this face.

- Hey, how are you guys?

- Good.

- Where's Cowboy?

Oh, my God, he looks exactly like him.

- I know, a spittin' image?

- Hi.

Henry and I are just about to go

to the store. You want to come with?

- Is Cowboy gonna be back later, or...

- We'll take the truck.

Can you believe we got a truck?

It was all of our savings in one go.

Okay, Mom, I'm going to the store now!

- Here you go.

- Thank you.

So, where you been? What have you seen?

I heard the Highline

got flooded out this summer.

You didn't get caught

in that mess, did you?



Where's Cowboy?

Last time we spoke, he caught out from

New Orleans and was headed up to Missouri.

Hell, I'd be traveling right there

with him, just like we used to, if I could.

It's not safe for this little man?

I think it all might just be different

for a momma, you know?

I mean, this little guy,

whatever it takes, it's where I gotta be.

It's easy. It wasn't easy for Cowboy.

I don't know, he just...

he just got angry. You know?

Like everything made him angry.

He'd go to work, they'd have him work

a double on the fly. He'd get angry.

The hospital keep saying we didn't pay

some anesthesiologist bill

we know damn well we paid,

or the mechanic, charged $120 too much.

No time to be with Henry.

No time to play music.

No, it's like pretty soon

he was just this...

man looking up at all these

tall things, bigger than him.

And he kept talking about getting back

on the trains, traveling some.

I basically told him to go.

I mean, just for a week.

And how long has he been gone?

A month.

He hasn't called in a couple

of days, but he will.

He'll be happy to know

you're doing so good.


Hey, Cowboy, it's Ryan here.

Just saw Virginia and your critter.

Kid looks just like you...

eyes half asleep and seeing everything.

I came to see you,

but you've been gone, I guess.

Anyway, we're... we're here in Ogden.

I had a few ideas about a music thing...

a song thing.

Kind of wanted to maybe run past you...


just give me a call,

you know, when you can.

I'll talk to you soon, bro.

Take care of yourself. Bye.



I didn't even see you, lady.

I didn't even see you.
