about

Thanks to Chuck Penza for suggesting I make this "Tennessee Boy" instead of "Texas Boy" (the original lyric). Inspiration? Steve Earle for the sounds; John Steinbeck, Grapes of Wrath, for the ideas (some at least...the part about the boy and the girl dancing to be specific and the idea that you can't stop it, no matter how bad the economy is!).

lyrics

Look at that Tennessee Boy
Look at that Galway Girl
Dancing together in the middle of it all

Might as well tell the sun
Not to shine around here
Tell the moon just to go and disappear

Might as well tell the flames
In the fire not to rise
Tell the stars not to come out tonight

Might as well tell the weeds
In the sidewalk not to grow
Tell the kids something they don’t already know

Tell the planets not to spin
The wind to die down
Tell the rabbits just to stay in the ground

Tell the wagon not to roll
To be completely still
To sit right there in the middle of the hill

If I had a little money down
This is exactly what I’d do
I’d buy me a guitar and I’d play a little song for you

And we’d listen to the banjo howl
And the coyote sing
Moving up and down like a bow on a fiddle string

So look at that Tennessee Boy
Look at that Galway Girl
Dancing together in the middle of it all
