Now this video is quite long, 24 minutes, but it has a lot of insight and if (like me) your cable is still out and you’re desperate for anything slightly resembling TV you might find it interesting.
I must admit on my system it’s pretty cranky and I had to goose it past the second break. Try moving the slider forward if you get lost in buffer land, don’t forget to restart the video.
Title quote @ aboot 4:09. lambert’s fave @ 4:46ish. Folsom Prison Blues below.
And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when.
I’m stuck in Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin’ on.
But that train keeps on rollin’ on down to San Antone.
When I was just a baby, my mama told me, “Son,
Always be a good boy; don’t ever play with guns.”
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
When I hear that whistle blowin’ I hang my head and cry.
I bet there’s rich folks eatin’ in a fancy dining car.
They’re probably drinkin’ coffee and smokin’ big cigars,
Well I know I had it comin’, I know I can’t be free,
But those people keep on movin’, and that’s what tortures me.
Well, if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine,
I bet I’d move it on a little further down the line,
Far from Folsom Prison, that’s where I want to stay,
And I’d let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.
