We Can't Make It Here - James McMurtry

James McMurtry was born in Texas in 1962, just when I was beginning high school and a few years before my own step sitting protests of the Vietnam War in college.  It has been too long since real protest has made a difference in these United States. 

This song was written and first performed in 2004 to highlight the social injustices and hypocrisy of the Bush Administration. Little has changed.  This song and this man are a voice of the times that need to be heard far more.

And I love acoustic guitar.
