I was chewin' gum for something to do
The blinds were being pulled down on the dew
Inside out of love, what a laugh
I was looking for you

    This song is yet another example of John Stirratt's brilliance. Also, the shaker is utilized extremely well!

    The More Like A Moon version is vastly inferior to the Ghost arrangement and the subsequent live arrangment. It was a rough draft in dire need of refinement.

    Hey you're right GarethBlinx, that bass line is a dead ringer for Bowie's "Heroes"

    I'd hate to ever have to decide on one favorite Wilco song, but this would have to be in the running.

    The Kicking TV version is magnificent, I agree. This song's lyrics are typical Tweedy greatness too.
