I know I’ve posted this song before, but it should be no great secret that Bumba, the editor of this wanna-be magazine, is one lazy son of a you know what. The Bumbastories Magazine staff – all of them imaginary alter-egos for Bumba by the way – are also a sorry collection of empty coconuts. So what we’re trying to get to is that every now and again on this blog you get a repost. At least the music part is a repost. You see, I was looking through my old posts. The title of this one caught my eye and anyhow, Worried Man’s
Blues is a great song. And these are worrying times. Very worrying.
I remain stupified by last night’s Presidential Debate. What a disgrace. We saw the orange guy, the President, just go up in flames. He is finished, caput, dead in the water, signed sealed and delivered and ready for the trash man. Good riddance to bad rubbish. I think that finally we will Dump Trump. That’s right. So, keep up the fight, and for the time being, just make sure that you and everyone you know votes. We will make our voices heard and perhaps begin a better era. But that better era means that we must continue to always fight for justice and peace. What? You think all the Trumpists and white supremecists and crazy people are going to just go away? Hard economic times will continue to face us. More people are going to die from this virus. The virus is still with us and will be with us for another year at least. The fight to maintain American democracy will go on. Hopefully, this election will herald the beginning of a true reform process. Make sure people vote.
Here’s a Worried Man Blues, recorded, as I was saying, something like a year ago by me and Maybank. Sing along.
Worried Man Blues is a traditional American song, over a hundred years old. Woody Guthrie recorded it. Likewise most the other great country players and singers. I think I heard it first from Jack Elliot.
