"Keep It Loose Keep It Tight..."

While surfing around tonight I ran across a rare gem over at youtube and I got to share it. Rarely do you find a great song, with great lyrics, sung by a great singer..."Greating" you out?! Well I will let you decide for yourself. His name is Amos Lee and he has a lot of soul. It's also a good video in terms of quality and being on youtube. Anywho...

Amos Lee - Keep it Loose, Keep it Tight (Live @ Abbey Road)

Yeah, that was nice! Told ya! Here are the lyrics and I highlighted the lines that really touch me. I haven't had the old landlord talk yet I also don't have one of them $500, 000 home for $500 a month ARM mortgages either, but I'm just ramblin:

Keep It Loose, Keep It Tight

Well I walked over the bridge
Into the city where I live and I saw my old landlord
Well we both said hello
There was no where else to go
Cause his rent I couldn’t afford

Well relationships change
Though I think it’s kind of strange how money makes a man grow
Ah, some people they claim if you get enough fame
You live over the rainbow
Over the rainbow
But the people on the street,
Out on buses or on feet
We all got the same blood flow

Oh in society every dollar got a deed
We all need a place that we can go and feel over the rainbow

Some times we forget what we got And who we are and who we are not
I think we got a chance to make it right
Keep it loose Keep it tight
Keep it tight

I’m in love with a girl who’s in love with the world Though I can’t help but follow Though I know someday she is bound to go away and stay over the rainbow Got to learn how to let her go Over the rainbow But sometimes we forget who we got Who they are and who they are not

There is so much more in love than black and white
Keep it loose child
You gotta keep it tight
Keep it loose child
Keep it tight
Keep it tight
Keep it tight

After listening to Biden and troop levels and supporting Georgia at the convention I needed something to ease the impending feelings of doom I have been feeling sense this DNConvention started and this did it, if only temporarily and that's more than I can ask for as I watch old America fade away!

I'm Afraid Of New Americans!
The New Defenders Of Old America!
