All Is Vain

All my wheel’s are runnin out of road/ I fell asleep on the train

I rode a horse straight out of town/ Let him carry me away

It’s a scene that goes around, all around

Vanity, leave it all behind

There was something I forgot to tell you/ But I remember it now

I want so bad, for you to get better/ Don’t let the blues get you down

You’re on my mind, sometimes, all the time

Vanity, leave it all behind

Apocalypse this life is fleeting/ a bird fell from the sky

Out in the field, there are no treaties/ Everyone is grown to die

But in the end, it goes around, all around

Vanity, don’t you think? 

Vanity, don’t you think?

Vanity, pack your things

Leave it all behind

All American Made

I woke up from a movie I immediately forgot/ Had a heartache on the bottom and a headache on the top/ But the part of me that hurts the worst is the one I just can’t spot/ And it’s all American made

Everywhere I go somebody puts me in the dirt/ And everything I say, somebody says they said it first/ But I don’t need ten million, just give me one that works/ if it’s all American made

All the midwest farms are turning into plastic homes/ My uncle started drinkin when the bank denied the loan/ Now it’s liver failure and his mad cow bein cloned/ And that’s all American made

Well I have been all over but I can’t help feelin stuck/ Somethin in my bloodline and somethin in my gut/ Says go to California in a rusted pick up truck/ That’s all American made

1987 and I didn’t know it then/ Reagan was selling weapons to the leaders  of Iran/ But it was not the first time and it won’t be the end/ They were all American made

But I was just a child unaware of the effects/ Raised on sports and Jesus and the usual suspects/ So tell me Mr. Petty what do you think will happen next/ That’s all American made

I wonder if the President gets much sleep at night/ And if the folks on welfare are making it alright/ But I’m dreaming of the highway, that stretches out of sight/ That’s all American made/ All American made/ All American made

Abilene, Texas

Charlie went to Reno, came up MIA/ In an El Camino five hundred miles away/ Lydia was in Vegas, dancing at The Crown/ Wearing lots of rhinestones, when Charlie came around

He told a stranger without a doubt/ He’d would give that girl a ring/Settle down right outside of Abilene

Charlie got real lucky, found ten million bucks/ in the trunk of a rental when a coke deal got mixed up/ Instead of doing right, and turning that bag in/ Lydia quit her job and they went out on a bend

Should have stayed where they belonged/ instead of stuck between/ The law, the hit man and the ghost of Abilene 

Living in a penthouse when she came in the door/ What she saw made her drop the groceries on the floor/ Everything was smashed blood was on the wall/ Leading to the backdoor where Charlie tried to crawl

 Lydia ran  away from there/ Before the cops could get keen/ Took a Greyhound back to Abilene

Breaking Out Of Inside Llewyn Davis’ Retro-Culture Of Despair
I’ve been in Houston, Texas for the New Year and am headed back to Greenwich Village tomorrow. It will probably be cold, post winter storm Hercules, but it will certainly not be as bleak as the Greenwich Village depicted in the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis.
I appreciated the cinematography. Watching the performance scenes at The Gaslight, I felt like I was almost sitting in the room with the audience, and I was reminded of today’s intimate venues like Rockwood Stage 1 and The Bitter End. I enjoyed the intense exploration of the protagonist that we don’t typically see in film these days. I view this indulgence in the individual as an accurate depiction of the beginnings of the singer-songwriter genre—a genre that placed ultimate importance on self-expression and the “authenticity” of the self, paradoxically portrayed under the commercial spotlight. But I’ll be honest. As a songwriter living in Greenwich Village, the film’s singular message rubbed me the wrong way.
