    The words of the master -- Neil Young


    There's colors on the street
    Red, white and blue
    People shufflin' their feet
    People sleepin' in their shoes
    But there's a warnin' sign on the road ahead
    There's a lot of people sayin' we'd be better off dead
    Don't feel like Satan, but I am to them
    So I try to forget it, any way I can.

    Keep on rockin' in the free world,
    Keep on rockin' in the free world
    Keep on rockin' in the free world,
    Keep on rockin' in the free world.

    I see a woman in the night
    With a baby in her hand
    Under an old street light
    Near a garbage can
    Now she puts the kid away, and she's gone to get a hit
    She hates her life, and what she's done to it
    There's one more kid that will never go to school
    Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.

    Keep on rockin' in the free world,
    Keep on rockin' in the free world
    Keep on rockin' in the free world,
    Keep on rockin' in the free world.

    We got a thousand points of light
    For the homeless man
    We got a kinder, gentler,
    Machine gun hand
    We got department stores and toilet paper
    Got styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer
    Got a man of the people, says keep hope alive
    Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive.

    Keep on rockin' in the free world,
    Keep on rockin' in the free world
    Keep on rockin' in the free world,
    Keep on rockin' in the free world.

    Some of music's greatest singer-songwriters have been Canadian. Including one of my current favorites, Kathleen Edwards. And, of course, one of my idols, Alanis Morissette.

    Damn, that explains a hell of a lot.

    Neither are my favorites, but they're both from my hometown. Greatness is in the water....or is it fluoride? :D
