Have another little peace of my heart now, baby, hey,
You know you got it, child, if it makes you feel good.
An aside – did you know that Piece of My Heart was originally recorded by Erma Franklin, Aretha’s big sis?  I didn’t. I understand Erma’s vocal styling’s are rather different from Janis’. Would love to hear that but, I suspect, Janis' version owns me.

What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.

There is so much of me which The Amazing Bob inspired, planted and nurtured. I am me, make no mistake about that meine Freunde, but TAB? He was the weft to my warp,

There is no such thing as inner peace. There is only nervousness and death.
