    Guarding my lovely bluebirds

    Pardon me while I sneer at anyone, and always have, whom likes Springsteen's meager attempts at music; your wish is my command:



    We Used to Know
    by Jethro Tull

    Whenever I get to feel this way
    Try to find new words to say
    I think about the bad old days
    We used to know

    Nights of winter turn me cold
    Fears of dying, getting old
    We ran the race, the race was won
    By running slowly

    Could be soon we'll cease to sound
    Slowly upstairs, faster down
    Then to revisit stony grounds
    We used to know

    Remembering mornings, shillings spent
    Made no sense to leave the bed
    The bad old days they came and went
    Giving way to fruitful years

    Saving up the birds in hand
    While in the bush the others land
    Take what we can before the man
    Says it's time to go

    Each to his own way I'll go mine
    Best of luck with what you find
    But for your own sake remember times
    We used to know

    He’s from my neck of the woods. He came to a good friends funeral a few years ago. Stand up guy.

    Jethro Tull and Bruce Springsteen are decent elevator music to me. I’m more into old and outlaw country. The more steel guitars, heartbreak and drugs the better.

    Well now, Little Friar, being that I was addressing a fellow Sister, I chose to go soft; Tull is multi-faceted and lead Andersson is a self-taught unique multi-instrumentalist (16 of them) genius, whom writes his own lyrics and music, unlike both of your choices, just so that you realize it.

    Guy Clark, Kristen Kristofferson, John Prine. There ya go. Intelligent, some of best poets in music and multi faceted.

    I just posted Chris Knight because he went to my high school, and he does write some fantastic music.

    On the topic of music not to start one of your little temper tantrums.

    You haven't lived until you have heard Summers in Kentucky.

    For those unfamiliar, do not listen with kids or those that are easily offended present.;)

    I sure am glad you guys reminded me--- Town Mountain did a better version of that song.

    The strings (banjo particularly), and country twang. Yess.

    I can sit and listen to Chris Knight all night
    I've went to see him at dive bars in Lexington about 20 years ago.
    My favorite is probably
    Down the river....



    second would be North Dakaota...

    James, I heard that song several years ago and it stuck in my mind. I didn't know who the singer was until now.
    Great song and great delivery. @jblack1. Down the River

    Enough Rope is on all my playlists.
    Hard Candy and Becky’s Bible are great too. Nothing like a song about running from the law where he hunted deer and turkeys….
