Danny O'Keefe: Just Jones Meaning
Just Jones Lyrics
So is the heart and the brain
So's the fire and so's the wind
and especially the rain
especially the rain
After all we've been through Jones
Look at you lying there
Trying to stare the ceiling...
This is a song about the death of a long-time older friend named Jones. From the song it sounds like he'd been living in pain for such a long time, but still took the time to be friendly and sing songs (with his "marvelous instrument"). He contemplates the time they'd spent together as Jones was lying catatonic in his death bed staring at the ceiling.
The verse that starts: "In the makeup and the sunday suit/you looked just like a doll" is recalling his funeral.
