ain’t it a crime

I’d like to offer up this song of mine, the words of which came to me while driving down on the Oregon coast (near Bandon), in 2003, listening to GW explain why it was so important to take out a leader of a “regime” he and his Dad, didn’t like.

Having played it at a few open mike nights in it’s original form, it held it’s prevalence, and in my mind is more true all the time, both parties are immersed in corruption and outright theft of our livelihoods, our ability to create a more compassionate society.

back around 2010, Karen and I were living at her parents house, care giving for her folks, and I would get to go the “Talking Stick” coffee house in Venice Beach, and join in on open mike nights, where I was honored to be surrounded by a great group of musicians, who joined me on stage for this song. I’m leading them on the Mandolin, and the recording is not that great, just a Zoom in the room, but I just thought you might enjoy….
