    This morning I was listening to Eva Cassidy singing Paul Simon's American Tune. This will be playing in my head the next few days. The visuals on this YouTube vid are more than a bit Hallmark, but the singing is great.

    American Tune
    words and music by Paul Simon


    Manys the time Ive been mistaken
    And many times confused
    Yes, and often felt forsaken
    And certainly misused
    Oh, but Im alright, Im alright
    Im just weary to my bones
    Still, you dont expect to be
    Bright and bon vivant
    So far a-way from home, so far away from home

    I dont know a soul whos not been battered
    I dont have a friend who feels at ease
    I dont know a dream thats not been shattered
    Or driven to its knees
    Oh, but its alright, its alright
    For we lived so well so long
    Still, when I think of the
    Road were traveling on
    I wonder whats gone wrong
    I cant help it, I wonder whats gone wrong

    And I dreamed I was dying
    I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
    And looking back down at me
    Smiled reassuringly
    And I dreamed I was flying
    And high up above my eyes could clearly see
    The statue of liberty
    Sailing away to sea
    And I dreamed I was flying

    We come on the ship they call the mayflower
    We come on the ship that sailed the moon
    We come in the a-ges most uncertain hours
    And sing an american tune
    Oh, and its alright, its alright, its alright
    You cant be forever blessed
    Still, tomorrows going to be another working day
    And Im trying to get some rest
    Thats all Im trying to get some rest

    I was thinking, "Happy Days are Here Again." By Barbra, of course.
