Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China

Last Night Early This Morning

There was no way I was going to watch Turd being inaugurated, so I poured myself a large one (well two, maybe three) and listened to some music instead.

I had selected Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks (just to cheer me up) and it got to Idiot Wind. Damn if I didn’t hear Turd speaking!

Someone’s got it in for me, they’re planting stories in the press
Whoever it is I wish they’d cut it out but when they will I can only guess

Then Dylan comes back talking about Turd.

Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth
Blowing down the backroads headin’ south
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth
You’re an idiot, babe
It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe

You didn’t know it, you didn’t think it could be done, in the final end he won the wars
After losin’ every battle

You hurt the ones that I love best and cover up the truth with lies
One day you’ll be in the ditch, flies buzzin’ around your eyes
Blood on your saddle

Now everything’s a little upside down, as a matter of fact the wheels have stopped
What’s good is bad, what’s bad is good, you’ll find out when you reach the top
You’re on the bottom

I noticed at the ceremony, your corrupt ways had finally made you blind

Well, actually I didn’t notice because I didn’t watch the ceremony, but it still seems to fit.

Spooky though!

(Selected lyrics from Bob Dylan’s Idiot Wind recorded 1974.)
