(16) Bluebird (3:27)

Bluebird (Mark Knopfler)

LYRICS
Got crows in my pasture
Rats in my barn
Crows in my pasture, babe
Rats in my barn
If I was you, little bluebird
I’d up and find another farm
I’ve got nightshade in my meadow
Ragweed in my corn
Nightshade in my meadow
And ragweed in my corn
If I was you, little bluebird
I’d be long gone
Yes, I got squirrels in my rafters
Weevils in my hay
Squirrels in my rafters
Weevils in my hay
If I was you, little bluebird
I’d up and fly away
Fly away, baby

I love this song. I would like more such songs on the new album. But it's impossible. There is no Kim Wilson. I had to write it :)

Agree.  But would replace whisky with some excellent California Chardonnay.   ;)

An observation I had with this song was that it seemed to particulary fit the backdrop of central California's farmland. This song was on my playlist during a marathon in the Central coastal area, and I felt like it meshed perfectly with the atmosphere.  I could also have been exhausted and in a near-delirious state at that point...  ;D

yes I remember when I was at highschool, I was listening to the communique album on my Sony walkman ( :o) and make it listening to a friend, and he said something like :"yeah good music, you know it's the kind of music you wan to listen to while drinking a good beer..."
I think it is exactly the defintion of laid back music, you know when JJ cale said something like : "The music I like ? it's the kind of music I can listen to while being on a rockin chair..."

Agree with both of you. I often do that with MK music, just laid back listening. Brings the mind at peace  :D
