Jeff Brown: Where you from Ray?
Ray Charles: North Florida.
Jeff Brown: Old North Florida boy. Your people still down there?
Ray Charles: Naw.
Jeff Brown: All right. Hey, pardon me for asking, but how do you get around so good without a cane or a dog?
Ray Charles: How do you get around so good without a cane or a dog?
Jeff Brown: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to pry.
Ray Charles: My ears gotta be my eyes, man. Everything sounds different, you know? That's why I wear hard sole shoes so I can hear the echo of my footsteps off the wall. When I pass by an open doorway the sound changes.
Jeff Brown: Wow, that's cool.
Ray Charles: You gotta learn pretty quick if you want to get around on your own.
