Finneran: Trump, Comey, & Willie Nelson

Friday, April 20, 2018

 

Willie Nelson

Ah, Willie Nelson..........the wise man of music, America’s philosopher.

The finger-pointing circus in Washington is too much to bear. The partisan noise is too much to bear. The he said/ she said nonsense is too much to bear. And so, I turn to Willie’s latest release.........

ME AND YOU-

Turn the sound down on my TV

I just can’t listen anymore

It’s like I’m in some foreign country

That I’ve never seen before.

So come now here to think about it

What in the hell are we goin’ to do?

Cause after all is said and all is done

It’s just me and you.

It’s just me and you

And we are definitely outnumbered

There’s more of them than us

Just when you think you made a new friend

They throw you under the bus.

So it’s just me and you

It’s just me and you.

I had a friend I used to talk to

We used to both sit on the fence

But anymore I can’t relate to him

‘cause he ‘aint got a lick of sense.

So now I just ask you the question

But I’m the one I’m talkin’ to

The world has gone out of its mind

Except for me and you.

It’s just me and you

And we are definitely outnumbered

There’s more of them than us

Just when you think you made a new friend

They throw you under the bus.

So it’s just me and you

It’s just me and you

Yeah, it’s just me and you.

 

Those opening lines are classic Willie........”Turn the sound down on my TV, I just can’t take it anymore. It’s like I’m in some foreign country, that I’ve never seen before.”

Enough said. How sad

Tom Finneran is the former Speaker of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, served as the head the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council, and was a longstanding radio voice in Boston radio
