Long black limousine
Shiniest car I've ever seen
The back seat is nice and clean
She rides as quiet as a dream

Someone dug a hole six long feet in the ground
I said goodbye to you and I threw my roses down
Ain't nothing left at all in the end of being proud
With me riding in this car and you flying through them clouds

I've had some time to think about it
And watch the sun sink like a stone
I've had some time to think about you
On the long ride home

One day I took your tiny hand
Put your finger in the wedding band
Your daddy gave a piece of land
We made ourselves the best of plans

Forty years go by with someone laying in your bed
Forty years of things you say you wish you'd never said
How hard would it have been to say some kinder words instead?
I wonder as I stare up at the sky turning red

I've had some time to think about it
And watch the sun sink like a stone
I've had some time to think about you
On the long ride home

Headlights searching down the driveway
The house is dark as it can be
I go inside and all is silent
And seems as empty as the inside of me

I've had some time to think about it
And watch the sun sink like a stone
I've had some time to think about you
On the long
On the long
Oh the long
On the long ride home

Godlike lyrics for those who know!

such a beautiful song to remind to be thankful for the ones we love

I think a lot of the acoustic gutar stuff we hear on RP with Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Laura Veirs, Be Good Tanyas, etc, are better described as "modern folk music".  I would concede a few RP artists like Julie Miller and a few others are probably in the country realm.

IMHO one distinguishing feature of 'recent' country music is the nasal vocal style. It's encouraged in modern country. However it wasn't always hat way in the past (e.g. the old time country you can hear on Nashville or albums like Emmmylou's Spyboy). Classical vocal teachers  dislike it  - for good reasons.  Sometimes it happens naturally because the singer doesn't have vocal training and doesn't know better. They haven't been taught to support their voice with their diaphragm and let the air do the work.  But at least it's sort of natural.  Other singers do it deliberately and it really comes out sounding phony and affected. It grates on me after a while, especially if the song is vapid. But in moderate amounts I can tolerate it if the rest of the composition has redeeming qualities - which this one has in droves. YMMV.
Nice coming soon after Get Better by alt-J.

"Hot funk, cool punk... even if it's old junk, it's still rock n roll to me."
I think what Mr. Joel was trying to say there is that the label doesn't matter.  If it's good and twangy, it could be Bluegrass, Folk, Americana, or even Country.  Besides, what we call "Country" today would be unrecognizable as Country to the Country artists 50 years ago, before everything splintered into subgenres.
This is the third song in a row dealing with the fragility of life:

The 30th - Billie Eilish
Get Better - Alt-J

Didn't think I'd end my Friday workday like this

This is bluegrass. Mandolin, guitar, dobro, and no percussion instruments. Please don't hate yerself!

I would definitely agree with the YMMV disclaimer at the end.

Listening to & reading the lyrics makes me think that the song is already written from the viewpoint of a man ("One day I took your tiny hand" ... "Your daddy gave a piece of land" [dowry?]). Getting past that, it seems like the regrets of a man after a far-from-perfect marriage, wondering why he argued with her so much and didn't say more things to show his love or just to bring happiness to her. That his life is incomplete without her, even though he seems to have taken her for granted all these years.

If We Were Vampires is more from the perspective of a couple that is deeply in love with each other and very aware of their eventual mortality, wanting to get the most out of their life & love.

As for the gender flip, you could look at it two ways. If you want to hear the same song, I think Bruce Springsteen could do a kick ass version of it. He has the storyteller chops & the gravitas to pull off the tale, as long as he doesn't overdo it. If you want to hear a guy sing the same type of story from a woman's perspective, I don't know of any off the top of my head. I'm not great with recognizing lyrics and there are sizable gaps in my musical knowledge, but I'm confident someone worthy of such a song has put the idea to paper & music.



It's funny that you mention Bruce Springsteen:  She does a cover of Stolen Car and likewise sings the original part of a man, running away from his girl and his life.  I kind of like that she doesn't bother switching the gender in the song just because she's not a male.  It's all storytelling, and stories can be about men or women.  John Prine does it in Angel From Montgomery too.

Is Emmylou singing backup on this?
 
Yup, that's her on harmony.
Should it not be 'A 1.000 kisses deep'? 🙂
This whole album is perfect.
yes sir,  I likes it
I've always needed the paddles to bring me back after hearing Long Ride Home; one of her masterpieces.

Apart from the beautiful voice and lyrics, the gradual buildup of the instrumentation is quite wonderful as well.
God, Patty Griffin is good!
This whole album is moody and wonderful.
I Love this song! Love Patty! I bow my head to those who have taken that long ride home and tip my hat to those who live and learn...Thanks RP!
I get tears every time I hear that song..and a few other of Patty's songs.

Have you heard her song "Get Ready Marie" - She's writing from the perspective of her Grandfather who is preparing her Grandmother for their wedding night. Pretty hilarious.
Love her singing
Simply amazing. 
Sometimes it seems miraculous what music can do...

Great album!  "40 years of things you say you wish you'd never said".  Really makes you think.
Beautiful lyrics. Beautiful song.

Fitting song today. RIP to those we've lost this week to suicide. "Your job as a support person is not to cheer people up. It’s to acknowledge that it sucks right now, and their pain exists."
I'm not crying, you're crying.

Your comment jogged my memory! Thanks-  Patty reminds me of the character "Ernestine" from Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, circa 1969. Ernestine was played by the late Lily Tomlin, a telephone operator who spoke with an hilarious, exaggerated nasal tone... Patty could "sing the phone book" but it would regrettably be entirely through her nose. 

 
I don't think Lily Tomlin has passed and Wiki agrees that she is still alive.

Perhaps you are thinking of the version by Bob Baez?
Following Mumford & Sons makes this sound all that much better....
Patty is a spokesperson for the Second Foundation - who will ensure that real music about real life, real emotions and the real world is re introduced to re set us. Or maybe it it is just a nice song about the human condition...
Great story telling. One of the very finest voices.

Not at all - I feel the same way about some of the Poe songs that are played on RP. Sometimes a song's emotion is just too intense.

C1: I appreciate your genuine comments, when I can understand them, which is not very often.  I do read them though.  I honestly think I am about the only one who does. We need more people commenting like you.  Believe me, we agree on a lot more than you may realize.   But I don't think this is the place for images like yours, and the lyrics, and the little factoid/announcement/infomercials/links and repostings from journals, which are excessive.  Could you at least not post the credits/copyright memos at the bottom of these?  Any moron with an iPhone can take these pictures you post.  I am all in favor of copyrights for creative content, but the idea that anyone stands to profit from these photos of struggling artists is laughable.  Besides, why exactly do you post the copyright?  Surely you are not protecting the financial interests of the performing artists themselves.  Shouldn’t their images belong to them, and not some parasitic photographer?  Why the hell should I care about the economic interests of some photographer who takes an unauthorized photo at a concert?  No one would pay me one cent for any of these images.

 
And for the people whining about this discussion taking place.  Buzz the fuck off!  I have had it up to here with whiners who hate discussions on a comment board.  Fuck Off.   
 
When i read the long speeches (sometimes not bad)  on this site, i am happy to write only: nice ,or comment, when i really know something about the song. I dont want to discuss. I want to hear the music. Amen!
You do not need to go further ...  I have also already thought so ...

I'm probably the most "anti-advertising", "anti-celebrity", "anti-star", that you may find, when discussing the topic music, and everything that is related to music.
For me, the concept of "artistic merit" and "commercial merit" are perfectly defined and separated, when analyzing an artistic musical work, though compatible and coexist together.
Obviously I understand that this contrasts sharply with and diverge the nature of the business and organization of the music industry, where everything, music / art, and business, with a whole roll, and even if accepted, that is the only way that makes sense . But it is not.

That success is based on artistic merit, based on taste and adherence to this musical work, regardless of the success achieved on  sale.

The merit-based commercial success, is also based on a component like, but it is mandatory condition to be sold on a large scale.


And therein lies the fundamental contradiction: that is to obtain and enforce commercial success, uses mechanisms promotional aggregates industry in order to induce and create advantage in a given musical work in order to obtain the maximum profit. Creating what they calls "music that is trendy."
While it is relegated by default, artists and genres more elaborate, but which are not potentially interesting to come to generate sales.

About my response to Horstman: I just direct "I replied to the letter," but I confess I have not used a lot of patience, and not used the "mass of polish words," obviously we are not here concerned people themselves, but what they say in their quality of this radio commentators. As few as.

About the images, links, drawings, "reviews of background," i put here, there is nothing commercial or promotional, much less advertising, is an inestimable benefit, to create "visual identification ties", biographic, pedagogic character, if desired, with the artists, which in my personal perspective, of recognized merit beyond the average.
You do not think, not even close, not even remotely, that all common people has access to artists, as you have. They have not.
And you do not doubt it, that only listen "airplaylist" couple of hours daily is sufficient. Not at all. Because the dinosaurs of the music business, take a big advantage with the integrated control of their broadcast media - image, video.tv, newspaper-magazine, "corporate rags". So.

I do a drawing for you: if you ask in any street of the western world, to an anonymous, for example, who is Justin Timberlake? Who is Gillian Welch ? Who is Patty Griffin? Who is Neil Young?, you'll be amazed.
Patty who? I know a Patty, but is my neighbor the 4th left.
Neil Young? let me see, what u say? Liliane?
Gillian Welsh? who? Raquel Welch? ...
Justin Timberlake? there will be many more people to hit the target .....
What makes the difference? "Propaganda -phenomenon".

comment "on board": specifically, does not exist. The closest thing is a "chat" giant, with allusions and commentary, instant character as part of a rolling platform, open to the entire community, style similar to "Twitter".

Review: critical analysis or building on a theme based on taste, sensitivity, acceptance or rejection based on facts (quote or external collection of information), which may or may not contain, and be assisted with external links, photos, cartoons, drawings , video, and more.

You focus on a certain point, "if we had five or 10 other people who posted?", "Or about 20 or 30 other?". This is the point. Only a very small number around the RP is "dare" to comment, interact, why? (and many of them are known among themselves)
Therefore should be more members to make it all up, it would be "icing on the cake"
Why are the remaining few thousand, I think, do not feel motivated to do this? This is what should be of concern and a goal. It is to let the opinion of a few prevail by a whole can not be conclusive; which opinion and feedback, of the other thousands of listeners about airplay? It would be interesting to know, and even then more support for RP.

2nd - Your feedback is somewhat obtuse and polluted, and even unfair, about comments i do here, in a passionate way, a logic-free and disinterested (and even no commercial).
3nd - You look like a fool of, sleepwalking, oblivious to reality, envious, who can not discern the principles and values that are contained in what I write. Also I'm not going to demand that you try to do, possibly because time would be lost, but you try to do something positive, instead of you walking here want to bore people.

 

The comment board is for comments, not advertising.  I know many people like your posts.  I ask those people this:  what if we had 5 or 10 other people who posted the same "comments" that you post?  What about 20 or 30 other?  The comment board would no longer be a comment board.  It would become Rolling Stone or Spin, two corporate rags that I avoid on purpose because they're, uh, corporate rags.  I am not denying the quality of your 1000s of bandwidth sucking images or advertisements.  It's the quantity.  As for your pathetic insults, spare me, you are a world class bore and I could not care less.
this would pair nicely with Richard Thompson's Walking the Long Miles Home
