Homage To Bluegrass

In by Chris on July 14, 2010 at 11:14 pm

Bluegrass is the music for me
None of that music that crescendos
None of those sounds coming from computers
None of that jazz too sexy
If the instruments aren’t full of dust
From roads traveled for lifetimes
If the voices don’t have whiskers on the inside
I don’t want to hear
On the blue grasses we dance
Stomp and clap and sing together
After a day working outside
Under the West’s endlessness
In bluegrass the words are simple
Because we are simple
And we don’t have good voices
And we can’t remember a hundred melodies
So we sing that bluegrass
