This is the best I've heard so far.
For what it's worth I think the obvious title could use a change. Using some words from the song, but not the first line. Like, "A cowboy in Babylon"
Edgy and catchy. Of course it's Tom Fairnie so it's gonna be ~ Quentin
Great to see a protest song again, this one hits the spot -"saw a cowboy ride into the setting sun, from the Lone Star State to the Pentagon" - way to go Tom!
you summed it up here Tom, all you peace campaigners this is one for you! It's good to know we still have songwriters who care
Damn!!! Is this Dylan I'm listening to? Great Song. I rarely give a "5" but this ones just too good. I'm downloading this one and playing it in my car to my friends.
Is there any greater tribute than that Stephen? I'm humbled and honoured!
can I say Wow ?!!! ..... awesome ... such great
mood and words and above all the heart who care
thank you for sharing such true song !!
I was trying to play some of the songs that came up when I typed in, "Iraq War." The songs came up under the song you were playing live.
How can I turn off your regular feed so I can hear selections?
And I'm very new to your site and it's like I've come home. Thank you!
Barry I'm not sure if your comment was directed at me in particular or Folk Alley in general?
WOW! who said protest is dead? Very Dylanesque!
a protest song about an unjust war? in the folk genre? rediculous! nicely done...i like some of the poetry, but it seems almost overkill. theres no need or time to mince words...get it out there; keep it simple, straight-forward, specific, undeniable and perhaps more 'singable' to the average joe/jane. my opinion. thanks.
had to give this one a second listen; i'm sometimes torn between the need for expedience and the importance of striking poetry. this one's on my favorites list. thanks, tom!
