No Depression

Un'altra splendida e molto politica canzone dai signori dell'alternative country... Bastano due versi, "Liquor & Guns, the sign says quite plain / Somehow life goes on in a place so insane”, ed il sogno americano è definitivamente sepolto...
C'è anche una foto sgranata che ritrae i nostri all'uscita da uno di questi empori dell'American Dream...



Jeff Tweedy, genio assoluto, lo sguardo sempre intenso, nonostante sia invecchiato parecchio...

Jeff Tweedy
Persuaded, paraded, inebriated, in doubt
Still aware of everything life carries on without
Cause there's one too many faces with dollar sign smiles
I've gotta find the shortest path to the bar for a while

A long way from happiness
In a three-hour-away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus
Not forever, just for now
Not forever but just for now

There's a trouble around, it's never far away
The same trouble's been around for a life and a day
I can't forget the sound, cause it's here to stay
The sound of people chasing money and money getting away

A long way from happiness
In a three-hour-away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus
Not forever, just for now
Not forever but just for now

In between the dirt and disgust there must be
Some air to breathe and something to believe
"Liquor and Guns" the sign says quite plain
Somehow life goes on in a place so insane

A long way from happiness
In a three-hour-away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus
Not forever, just for now
Not forever but just for now
