Frequently Wrong, But Never in Doubt

This is the song that inspired the name of this blog! If you’re not familiar with Cheryl Wheeler, she’s a fantastic songwriter and her socio political outlook is very similar to my own. This song was about a family friend and I think a lot of us can see someone we know in it.

It also spoke to the audience of this site, I hope I get people who agree with me, and some who are:

Frequently Wrong But Never in Doubt
Words And Music By Cheryl Wheeler

I remember when George used to come to our house
For a meeting of one of his clubs He would often drive down
`Cause we lived close to town
Where the pulse of the big business was
He belonged to the yacht club, the truckers, the shriners
Though he had no boat and no rig
Still he’d eat roast beef dinners
And hob-nob with winners
And wait till he hit something big

But before he could get that big fish on the line
They let everyone in and ruined the Shrine
And he was easily riled and likely to shout
Frequently wrong but never in doubt

His friends called him skippy
But he had no family
Till my mother’s folks took him in
Just a short blond and wavy
Boy from the navy
And he never left home again

How he married Agnes oh I’ll never know
She was gracious and gentle
And she loved him so
And he was grand in her eyes
When they would go out
And frequently wrong but never in doubt

And I guess he had a big time
Sharing the secret symbol
With masters elect of the night
Down at the Boumi temple
Well I guess he was crazy I think he was lonely
My mother was his best friend
He hollered and cried
The day that she died
And I rarely saw him again

And I guess I’ve forgotten since I was a kid
I don’t know why we loved him I just know we did
And he was easily riled, likely to shout
Frequently wrong but never in doubt
