(Uncle Tupelo)


1990
dal primo album della band, No Depression


A quarter after two
Sittin' in my car, watching
Waiting on a train
Ninety-seven flatcars
Loaded down with troop trucks and tanks
Rolling by

I'm twenty-one, and I'm scared as hell
I quit school, I'm healthy as a horse
Because of all that I'll be the first one to die in a war

The whole damn town was sleeping
Dreaming the same dream
The radio was playing
Roger McWilliams singing
"To each and every thing there's a time and a season

I'm twenty-one, and I'm scared as hell
I quit school, I'm healthy as a horse
Because of all that I'll be the first one to die in a war

Yes, I have the right to say
We all die anyway
But I'd just like to know
Where does my time go

Sono forse la mia band Usa preferita... mi fa piacere trovarla in CCG.
Vengono (venivano) da un posto dove molti finiscono sotto le armi: bianchi e soprattutto neri, costretti dalla povertà
