Down here, where's we're at
The weather changes, that's the way it goes
Sometimes it snows, when everything's wrong
Sometimes it snows, but when it does, it doesn't last long

Down here, where we're at
All we do is sit out on the porch
And play our songs, and nothing's wrong
Sometime friends come around, they all sing along

Down here, where we're at
Everyone is equally poor
Down here, we don't care
We don't care what happens outside the screen door

Down here, where we're at
Sweat drips from the tip of your nose
You wear loose clothes, and you try to stay cool
We all still have a lot of fun, never saw much school

Down here, where we're at
Everyone is equally poor
Down here, we don't care
We don't care what happens outside the screen door

Wow, Uncle Tupelo AND Wilco already, and I haven't even finished my coffee.  It's going to be a long day.

Yeah, pretty much a trailer-trash-on-welfare mentality.
I'm an Uncle Tupelo fan from way back but I'd completely forgotten about this one. I was listening to this and thinking "Those guys from the freecreditreport.com commercials do a pretty good Uncle Tupelo impersonation."  But it's the real thing.


the comments about the set are SO right on. someone was either just IN THE GROOVE or REALLY worked on these song-to-song transitions with a lot of thought. nicely done, RP. this song in particular is touching a chord. been listening to a lot of wilco and a lot of son volt lately, and it's so sweet to remember what their ingredients tasted like before they'd separated out, so to speak. :)
A great Tweedy sung song from Uncle T.'s first album. even if my wife is sick of this cut and "Whiskey Bottle". It really does sound like they recorded it out on their porch while rollin' a fatty.
A nice tune, but i'm not sure about the "wilfully ignorant" aspect of the lyrics. :/
I like the Uncle Tupleo Jeff almost as much as I like the Wilco Jeff.
Who can work when Bill puts on a set like this, eh? Lovely. Keep on rollin' :motor:
Bill, I am supposed to be working here!!! Loving this set. :music:
