The first time I heard that expression was in the Beatles' song 'I'll Cry Instead'. I kept wondering why the hell John Lennon would have a piece of potato on his shoulder.
"Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die..." - Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
