She was a Princess, Queen of the Highway

We all have something that inspires us. For Jim it was Pamela Courson. Songs like Queen of The Highway, Orange County Suite and Indian Summer are just several examples. She also inspired a lot of his poetry. He dedicated his first poetry book to Pamela Susan.

She was a princess, queen of the Highway.
Sign on the road said “Take us to Madre.”
No one can save her save the Blind Tiger.
He was a monster, black dressed in leather.



She was a princess, Queen of the Highway.
Now they are wedded, she is a good girl.
Making his children out in a meadow.
Naked as children, wild as can be.
Soon to have offspring
Start it all over, start it all over


American boy, American girl
The most beautiful people in the world.
Son of a frontier, indian swirl
Dance into the midnight whirlpool naked, Formless.
I Hope it can continue a little while longer,
Little while longer

She was a princess yeah
