“All The Old Cowboys” song

By , 10 March, 2010, 9 Comments

Thought I’d continue along with the normal voice experiment. I don’t really know where this song came from. I’m not very political, but this song is.

Lyrics:

All the Palestinians are coming around
Taking shears to the baskets
of their thorny crowns

And all the Israelis agree
To divide the divine up equally

But oh don’t break for this
Philosophy’s perfect apocalypse

the truth is born of pain
Moment by moment and then refrain

All the lost Indians are streaming back
From the mountains and the canyons
And their broken shacks

And all the Old Cowboys agree
To divide the divine up equally

But oh don’t break for this
Philosophy’s perfect apocalypse

the truth is born of pain
Moment by moment and then refrain

And did you know…I need a job?

    sounds more like a wish that politics didn’t exist to me….

    Not political… just human… had to listen several times… made me cry every time.

  • Sleeves

    me too…and I’ll think about doing some other stanzas. And I think you guys are right about where the song lays in terms of politics. 🙂 Thanks!

    I bet you can think up a few more stanzas…

    Very nice song. I really like it.

    I like both voices. It’s great in the normal voice version of “Lay My Head Down” when we get the best of both worlds with a little dualing Sleeves’s action.

    The background scenery in that picture is breathtaking btw.

    Reminds me of something R.E.M. may have done in its heyday. Sleeves is up high on my list of favorite songwriters.
