Album: Mescalito

La guerra in Iraq vista da chi resta a casa, a rompersi la schiena per un dollaro al giorno... nessuna profonda analisi politica, soltanto i "fratelli che vanno a combattere per la libertà e per un poco di petrolio" perchè "costa un sacco di soldi vivere nella terra della libertà"...

"Mescalito" (2007) è un disco molto bello, se vi piace l'alternative country...
Qui un paio di recensioni:

Sul sito di Bingham si posso ascoltare alcuni pezzi dell'album:
Well I’ve been workin in the god damn sun
for just for a dollar a day
I've been workin for a day,
been workin for a dollar a day

And I’ve never understood why all my money goes
down to the man at the bank
when all he does is sit and think
about the money that I’m gonna make

And all of my brothers are jumpin on planes
and go in off fightin' in wars
over on desert shores
fightin for my freedom and a little bit of oil.

And it sure does cost a whole lot of money
to live in the land of the free
I think I’ll go and plant me a seed
and grow a marijuana money tree.

Well then I’m a gonna head down to south Louisiana
with a guitar on my back
cornbread and a gunni sack
maybe Uncle Sam will cut me some slack

I’ve been diggin' in the rock since 5 o'clock
my calluses* cut to the bone
the soles in my shoes are worn
Cause I’ve been diggin' in the rock since dawn.

*'Calluses' - dal testo riportato sul libretto del cd non riesco a capire se la parola sia proprio questa... Il termine compare nel testo pubblicato su Cowboylyrics , che però è completamente difforme dall'originale...
