Music Monday: Green Green Grass Of Home


I have to admit, it has been hard finding music, to express my feeling on Independence Day here in the United States this year.  Politics have been painful made worse by a politically packed Supreme Court.  I thought about posting God Save the Queen.  May we have more to feel good about this time next year.

  1. I don't know when my faith will ever return. And have mixed feeling about the Fourth. But I must remember, our country deserves our Patriotism. The government and politicians MUST EARN IT.

    2. For starters:
      Born down in a dead man's town
      And the first kick I took was when I hit the ground
      You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
      'Til you spend half your life just to cover up

  3. I just do not understand why a certain element in your country take no notice of world opinion. Five plus years ago it began to go terribly wrong and even with a new leader who is a decent person for a politician, it is still so bad.
    Tom Jones is a great performer.

    1. When we were in Ireland in March of 2020, there were posters up for an upcoming Tom Jones performance - he is older than I am. I bet he still puts on a good show.

  4. I will listen to Tom sing, and envision him in those tight polyester slacks of yesteryear while I do so.
    I remain patriotic, but I need to see those elected officials step up ... or step out.

  5. I couldn't agree more! It is getting harder and harder to feel patriotic.

  7. There are no songs that I'm aware of that could adequately express how I feel about the state of the US.
