Trickle Down Economics

“First got to privatize then you get to piratize”

Dedicated to Donald J Trump and his cabinet team of deplorables

Lyrics:

Picture on magazine boardroom pop star
Pinstripe prophet of peckerhead greed
You say ‘Trust me with the money — the keys to the universe’
Trickle down will give us everything we need

Brand new century private penitentiary
bank vault utopia padded for the few
And it’s tumours for the masses coughing for the masses
Earphones for the masses and they all serve you

Trickle down give /em the business
Trickle down supposed to give us the goods
Cups held out to catch a bit of the bounty
Trickle down everywhere trickle down blood

What used to pass for education now looks more like ignoration
Take the people’s money and slip it to the corporation
Yellow rain golden shower pesticide firepower
Summon feudal demons of sweatshop subjugation

Workfare foul air homeless beggars everywhere
Picturephone aristocrats lounge around the pool
Captains of industry smiling beneficently
Leaking hole supertanker ship of fools

Trickle down give me the business
Trickle down supposed to give us the goods
Cups held out to catch a bit of the bounty
Trickle down everywhere trickle down blood

Take over takedown big bucks shakedown
Schoolyard pusher offer anything-for-profit
First got to privatize then you get to piratize
Hooked on avarice- how do we get off it?

Trickle down give me the business
Trickle down supposed to give us the goods
Cups held out to catch a bit of the bounty
Trickle down everywhere trickle down blood

Trickle down give me the business
Trickle down supposed to give us the goods
Cups held out to catch a bit of the bounty
Trickle down everywhere trickle down blood

Trickle down

Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb

Support this blog by shopping at Amazon.com

Good morning,

I had the opportunity to play some bluegrass gospel tunes with some folks at a church service at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church. Dick Horonjeff recorded our performance. This is our version of a classic tune with somewhat grim imagery.

Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb (A)


Verse 1:
G                              C
Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power
        G                          D
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb
        G                     C
Are you fully trusting in his grace this hour
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb

Chorus (after each verse)

G          
Are you washed(are you washed)
       C
In the blood(in the blood)
       G                           D
In the soul cleansing blood of the lamb
         G                          C
Are your garments spotless are they white as snow
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb (turn around)

Verse 2:

G                            C
Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side
        G                          D
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb
       G                       C
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb

Verse 3:

G                                    C
When the bridegroom cometh will your robes be white
         G                         D
Pure and white in the blood of the lamb
G                               C
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright
       G             D            G
And be washed in the blood of the lamb

NEGRO Y AZUL By LOS CUATES DE SINALOA

Spanish Pop Lyrics

‘Breaking Bad’ is one of the most original US TV shows of the last few years.

It’s about a chemistry teacher dying from lung cancer who turns to drug dealing to try and provide for his family.

There’s occasional Spanish dialogue in the show, usually without subtitles, though they are included for this song on the DVD (my translation below is slightly different, I think it’s a bit more faithful to the Spanish lyrics).

The 7th episode of the 2nd series opens with this song, which is basically a tongue in cheek look at the story so far in the style of a Narcocorrido (a Mexican drug ballad).

UPDATE: I have now added the third verse, which doesn’t appear in the show but which is included in the soundtrack version (Feb 2013).

The Dream

Find the Bluegrass Band IIIrd Tyme Out at Amazon.com

I get the opportunity to play some bluegrass music with folks on the weekend. This is one of the tunes that I like and is perfect for this Good Friday. Listen and sing along.

The DreamIIIrd Tyme Out (recorded in F)

 

One night as I lay on my pillow, while asleep in a dream i did go.

To the place where they crucified Jesus on that old rugged cross cruel and cold.

There the greatest love story was written, visualize with me if you will.

Our savior on that April morning as he carried the cross up the hill.

 

(Chorus)

I saw the nails, those old rusty nails and the crown made of thorns that he wore.

So sad was the scene that I cried in my dream so great was the pain that he bore.

They scorned and they mocked , he drank the bitter cup as he hung there with two common thieves.

For he had to fulfill his father’s own will and I was right there in a dream.

 

(mandolin instrumental)

 

As I stood there on top of Mount Calvary in his pain I could hear his sad cry.

From the sixth hour till nine there was darkness in my dream oh so helpless was I.

I thank him for that day on the mountain, the price that he paid was supreme.

And in my heart I will carry a picture of what I saw there in a dream
(Chorus)

Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór

Anyone that attempts to play music realizes how vast and rich this artform is. I knew this tune but was unaware of the guitar tuning DADGAD (Dad Gad). It has such a great sound. Since I have an extra guitar I need to give the tuning a try, at least as a stretch goal.

Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór (meaning “Small fairy, big fairy” in Irish Gaelic) is an Irish tune, attributed to blind harpist and singer Turlough Carolan (1670-1738).

It is a delight to watch this YouTube video, Tony makes it look so effortless.
