He had a black eye he was proud of
But some of his friends
Made him feel somewhere outside
Of everything and everywhere he'd been

    Tweedy doing Dylan doing Woodie... No! People! Not like that! Vocally!!!!! I'm talking about form and content. The juxtaposition of human relationships. Men. Women. God. The Devil. Heaven. Hell. Do you understand, FINALLY???!!!

    Probably heard them do this one, it's been so long now, but I was not entirely sanguine on their song titles in those days. Lovely rollicking guitar style on this.

    I'll go out and admit I never warmed up to the album version after hearing it played acoustically in a solo concert by Mr. Tweedy...

    Holy shit, this might've been the first song I ever shouted on. It's only gotten better.

    Beautiful and sad. Tweedy captures a certain type of person from small towns.

    Tweedy didn't "disown" this song or a bunch of other UT songs...he's played a handful of them during solo shows. I saw Wilco a few years back and they played "New Madrid" and "We've been had"...pretty awesomely too I might add :).

    I don't think he's disowned them, he's just moved on.

    I wasn't aware Tweedy had disowned songs like this (from the UT era). Perhaps that is a result of his bitter rift with Jay Farrar...? In any case, a great song.

    How Jeff Tweedy can disown such masterpieces is beyond me.
