Bad Year For Folksingers

(chorus)  it’s a bad year for folksingers / just like the year before

it’s a bad year for folksingers / nobody sings along anymore

there ain’t no glory in it / like back in the Village days

Dylan plays electrical guitar / drives a Cadillac around L.A…  hey (repeat chorus)

my wife has divorced me now / she married some guy named Newt

they moved out to Washington / send me some Spanish boots (repeat chorus)

I went down to a coffee house / to listen to a friend

we was five people gettin’ all wired / our answers was blowin’ in the wind (repeat chorus)

Darn It Ashley

so I’m hiking up in the mountains / with Ashley my girlfriend

unaware our happy trail / is about to end

we run into this mountain man / the mountain man says “hiya”

Speedo and a coonskin hat / he says his name is Jeremiah

darn it Ashley

Jeremiah has a moonshine jug / he’s a typical mountain man

Ashley takes a chug-a-lug / says “Jer, I like your tan”

well, we pass that jug around / I head for the moonshine zone

people let me tell you when I wake up / man, I’m all alone

darn it Ashley

I sit  down near the waterfall / to eat a little trail mix

I start in to missing Denver / God, how I love bricks

now this isn’t the first time / old Ashley’s gone astray

there was this cross-eyed matador / way down Mexico way

darn it Ashley

as Ashley’s out cavorting / with that Jeremiah dude

I sit around with my trail mix / longing for fast food

a Grizzly Bear comes nosing around / I figure it’s time to leave

Jeremiah my mama’s bowling ball / his name is probably Bruce or Steve

must reach Taco Bell

so I hop into my Neon / head back to civilization

turn on the Rockies game / to cheers and ovation

Larry Walker hits one out / the Rocks are up by three

Ashley don’t like baseball / baseball’s been good to me

darn it Ashley
