about

Live at Wood Hall is an exciting journey through Allison Crowe's concert repertoire, recorded with a simple clarity in the converted chapel of Victoria (B.C.)'s Conservatory of Music. Alongside more than an album's worth of original songs of love and hope, social and political conscience, and real beauty, Allison covers cherished favourites - including Ani DiFranco ("Independence Day"), Counting Crows ("A Murder of One"), Tori Amos ("Playboy Mommy"), Janis Joplin ("Me and Bobby McGee"), and John Lennon ("Imagine"). Colours in the artist's musical palette range from roots & blues, through folk, pop/rock, jazz and Broadway. There's even a tradtional Irish aire, "Believe Me If All (Those Endearing Young Charms)", sung acapella. Once again, Larry Anschell (Turtle Studios) captures the music on tape and Alix Whitmire designs the beautiful artwork/CD cover. " 'Music, man, that's where it's at'/ it is a religious line/ outside, the chimes rung/ an they/ are still ringin."

Track Name: There Is
There Is
Words & Music by Allison Crowe

Open up your door
I know we've both been here before
But there's a shadow fading here
A revolution on its way

Open up your mind
I know I've drowned in there before
But my wings are drying off
And I am ready to dive in
I am coming back again
To you

A way
There is a way
Out of this
There is

Give me a minute
I'll try to explain myself to you
I am the girl who is always with you
The one who's always watching

Give me a break I thought that you
understood this already
And I'm not trying to deceive you
I don't have that much time on my hands
And I am not going to leave you alone

A way
There is a way
Out of this
There is

I see you in the rain
and you are more beautiful
than I have ever seen

And when I walk I want you with me
And I see your smile above me
and I know, I know there is

A way
there is a way
out of this
there is.
Track Name: By Your Side
By Your Side

Words & Music by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe

If I could come
Back to you
It always comes
Back to you
But knowing you
And wanting you
Are separate
And I am desperate

But I know you're here with me
You're always here with me

And it colours me
Indefinitely
I am by your side
I am by your side

And when you can't breathe
When you decide to leave
I am by your side
I am by your side

Where did you go?
What did you do?
What did they
Take from you?

I can't hold on
To this now
Your eyes are cold
I don't know how

To let go of you
I miss you, I love you

And it colours me
Indefinitely
I am by your side
I am by your side
Track Name: Immersed
Immersed
Words & Music by Allison Crowe

I will fight you
Every step of the way
No matter what you do
Or what I have to say

Kicking and screaming
Just drag me out of here
I will cause you sorrow
And I will not endear

So wait, oh, no, no, no you can't go
I thought you said you'd know
No?
I didn't think so

I am wide-awake
And immersed in confusion
Bare boned and busted up
And lost in disillusion

If I had just one
Little spark inside of me
I wouldn't be so scared
Of the dark side of me

I refuse to
be something that I'm not
Just to be who you are
Just to get what you have got

I won't accept restraint
And I will not hide behind fear
Yeah, I will be afraid
But I'll stand up
I will stay right here

So wait, oh, no, no, no you can't go
I thought you said you'd know
No?
I didn't think so

I am wide-awake
And immersed in confusion
Bare boned and busted up
And lost in disillusion

And if I had just one
Little spark inside of me
I wouldn't be so scared
Of the dark side...
Track Name: Independence Day
Independence Day

Words & Music by Ani DiFranco
As performed by Allison Crowe

We drove the car
To the top of the parking ramp
4th of July

Sat out on the hood
With a couple of warm beers
And watched the fireworks
Explode in the sky

There was an exodus of birds from the trees
'cause they didn't know
We were only pretending

And the people all looked up and looked pleased
And the birds flew around
Like the whole world was ending

I don't think war is noble
And I don't like to think love is like war
But I got a big hot cherry bomb
And I wanna slip it through the mail slot
Of your front door

You can't leave me here
I got your back now
You'd better have mine

And you say the coast is clear
But you say that all the time

So many sheep I quit counting
Sleepless and embarrassed
About the way that I feel

Trying to make mole hills out of mountains
Building base camp at the bottom
Of a really big deal

Did I ever tell you how I stopped eating
When you stopped calling me
I was cramped up
Shitting rivers for weeks
And pretending that I was finally free

You can't leave me here
I got your back now
You'd better have mine

And you say the coast is clear
But you say that all the time

We drove the car
To the top of the parking ramp
4th of July

I planted my dusty boots on the bumper
Sat out on the hood
And looked up at the sky
Track Name: Sea of a Million Faces
Sea of A Million Faces
Words & Music by Allison Crowe

I pulled a knife on myself today
I don’t know what I was thinking
All of these words trapped inside my head
I feel like I’ve been drinking

And I know you don’t want to see
Me this way...

In a sea of a million faces
I feel so alone
I only have you
to hold on to
So please don’t go, don’t go.

And so I walk through the moonlit streets
But the light evades me
Lost in the darkness of endless nights
I am cold and I’m afraid

and I wish that I could see...
you this way too...

In a sea of a million faces
I feel so alone

I only have you to hold on to
So please don’t go, don’t go

I would have crawled for ten thousand days
Just to get back to you
With dirty knees and a wind torn face
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do

And I don’t ever want

To see you this way...
Track Name: Fire
Fire
Words & Music by Allison Crowe

Take that fire from your head
and see my eyes
take this feeling I have
need for self-sacrifice

Take this guilt off my chest
and I will have learned
take this bridge from my past
that I've already burned

And I see that you know me
And I see that you are not impressed
And I see that I am not forgiven
And I see that I have not been
given rest

Take this life from my hands
and give it peace
Take this picture from my mind
and give it release

I was not in my head
And I was not alive
I am down on my knees
and I've already died

And I see that you know me
And I see that you are not impressed
And I see that I am not forgiven
And I see that I have not been
given rest
Track Name: What About You
What About You
Words & Music by Allison Crowe

So you're weary now
from the company you keep
lay down your head
and go back to sleep
back to sleep

Just wait till the end
it will be worth it I swear
so hold on, my friend
we're almost there

Chorus:

Step back for a moment
and watch what's going on around you
you're so concerned with pleasing everyone
what about you?

I woke up at half past 12
half in and out of dreaming
I could barely hear
but I think that I was screaming

I tried to call out to you
be careful, they're right behind you
but you turned to me and said, I'm dying
and it's too late for anyone to save me

Chorus:

Step back for a moment
and watch what's going on around you
you're so concerned with pleasing everyone
what about you?

repeat

So you're weary now
from the company you keep
lay down your head
and go back to sleep...

how long do I have to wait here?
you leave me standing in the cold
how long will it take you to remember
while you're still alive and growing old
I'm the only one who cares about you

so roll me over
shut me out
if that's what you feel possessed to do
whatever helps to get you through the night
yeah it may kill me
but I'll still love you

how long do I have to wait here
you leave me standing in the cold
how long will it take you to remember
while you're still alive and growing old
I'm the only one who cares about you

I am
I am the only one
I am
I am...

how long do I have to wait here
you leave me standing in the cold
how long will it take you to remember
while you're still alive and growing old
I'm the only one, I am the only one
I am

you leave me standing in the cold
how long will it take for you to realize
that I am gone?
Track Name: Bill
Bill

Words by P.G. Wodehouse & Music by Jerome Kern
As performed by Allison Crowe

I used to dream that I would discover
The perfect lover someday,
I knew I'd recognize him if ever
He came 'round my way.
I always used to fancy then
He'd be one of the God-like kind of men
With a giant brain and a noble head
Like the heroes bold
In the books I've read.

But along came Bill
Who's quite the opposite of all
The men in storybooks
In grace and looks
I know that Apollo
Would beat him
All hollow

And I can't explain,
It's surely not his brain
That makes me thrill --
I love him because he's wonderful,
Because he's just my Bill.

He can't play golf or tennis or polo,
Or sing a solo, or row.
He isn't half as handsome
As dozens of men that I know.
He isn't tall or straight or slim
And he dresses far worse than Ted or Jim.
And I can't explain why he should be
Just the one, one man in the world for me.

He's just my Bill, an ordinary man,
He hasn't got a thing that I can brag about.
And yet to be
Upon his knee
So comfy and roomy
Seems natural to me.
Oh, I can't explain,
It's surely not his brain
That makes me thrill --
I love him because he's -- I don't know...
Because he's just my Bill.

Track Name: Whether I'm Wrong
Whether I'm Wrong
Words & Music by Allison Crowe

Don't want to raise my head
The world is covered in rage
Voices calling out in anger
Entering erratically into another age

Shadow puppets on the wall
Don't know who to believe
In the darkness standing tall
With a smile upon your face

And I have a right, to
Have a voice, have a say

Whether I'm wrong, or whether I'm right
It doesn't really matter anymore
You've put up a wall
You've put up a fight
And now it seems we've forgotten
What all that was for

Whether you don't want to
Or whether you can't see
What is right in front of your face
Time is running out
And we're already losing ground
With the human race

Don't want to raise my hand
Don't know why I'm scared to say
I feel like I want to call out
Feel like I want to run away

And I don't know why anyone
Should have to suffer anymore
I don't know a lot of anything
But I do wonder what all of this is for

And you have a right, too
To have a voice, have a say

Whether I'm wrong
Or whether I'm right
It doesn't really matter anymore
You've put up a wall
We've put up a fight
And now it seems we've forgotten
What all of that was for

Whether you don't want to
Or whether you can't see
What is right in front of your face
Time is running out
And we're already losing ground
With the human race
Track Name: In Love in Vain
In Love In Vain

Words & Music by Leo Robin/Jerome Kern
As performed by Allison Crowe

It's only human for anyone to want to be in love,
Who wants to be in love in vain?
At night you hang around the house and eat your heart out,
And cry your eyes out
And wrack your brain.

You sit and wonder how anyone as wonderful as he
Could cause you such misery and pain.

I thought that I would be in heaven,
But I'm only up a tree,

'Cause it's just my luck to be in love in vain.

You sit and wonder how anyone as wonderful as he
Could cause you such misery and pain.

I thought that I would be in heaven,
But I'm only up a tree,

'Cause its just my luck to be in love, just my luck to be in love

It's just my luck to be in love,
in vain
Track Name: A Murder of One
A Murder of One

Words & Music by Adam Duritz, David Bryson, Charles Gillingham, Matt Malley, Ben Mize, & Dan Vickrey
As performed by Allison Crowe

Blue morning, blue morning
Wrapped in strands of fist and bone.
Curiosity, Kitten, doesn't have to mean you're on your own.
Your can look outside your window,
He doesn't have to know.
We can talk a while, baby.
We can take it nice and slow.

All your life is such a shame, shame, shame.
All your love is just a dream, dream, dream.

Well, are you happy where you're sleeping
Does he keep you safe and warm
Does he tell you when you're sorry
Does he tell you when you're wrong

I've been watching you for hours
It's been years since we were born
We were perfect when we started...
I've been wondering where we've gone.

All your life is such a shame, shame, shame.
All your love is just a dream, dream, dream.

Well, I dreamt I saw you walking up a hillside in the snow
Casting shadows on the winter sky as you stood there counting crows.
One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for girls and four for boys,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret never to be told.

There's a bird that nests inside you
Sleeping underneath your skin.
Yeah, when you open up your wings to speak
I wish you'd let me in.

All your life is such a shame, shame, shame.
All your love is just a dream, dream, dream.
Open up your eyes
You can see the flames, flames, flames.
of your wasted life.
You should be ashamed.

Yeah, you don't want to waste your life, baby.
You don't wanna waste your life, now darlin.
You don't wanna waste your life, baby.
You don't wanna waste your life, now darlin.
Oh, you don't wanna waste your life, now babe.
I said you don't wanna waste your life, now darlin.
Oh, you don't wanna waste your life, now baby.
Oh, you don't wanna, you don't wanna waste your life, now darlin.
Change, change, change.
Change.
Change.
Change.

I walk along these hillsides in the summer 'neath the sunshine.
I am feathered by the moonlight falling down on me.

I said I walk along these hillsides in the summer 'neath the sunshine.
I am feathered by the moonlight falling down on me.

I said I will walk along these hillsides in the summer 'neath the sunshine.
I am feathered by the moonlight falling down on me.

I said I will walk along these hillsides in the summer 'neath the sunshine.
I am feathered by the moonlight.

change, change, change.
change, change, change.
Yeah.
change, change, change.
Oh, change, change.
Y-y-y-y-y-yeah.
Change, change, change.
Track Name: Believe Me If All
Believe Me If All

Traditional Irish Aire w. words by Thomas Moore
As performed by Allison Crowe

Believe me, if all those endearing young charms,
Which I gaze on so fondly today,
Were to change by tomorrow, and fleet in my arms,
Like fairy-gifts fading away,
Thou wouldst still be adored, as this moment thou art,
Let thy loveliness fade as it will,
And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart,
Would entwine itself verdantly still.

It is not while beauty and youth are thine own,
And thy cheek unprofaned by a tear,
That the fervour and faith of a soul can be known,
To which time has but made thee more dear:
No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
But as truly loves on to the close,
As the sun-flower turns to her god, when he sets,
The same look which she gave when he rose.
Track Name: Crayon and Ink
Crayon and Ink

Words and music composed by Allison Crowe

The Arctic surrounded my cold wooden room
I don't think I've ever felt so warm
these waters brought back to me
what I reluctantly believed
and I watched as the 4 corners gave way
to the ice and the life and the death

and the warmth
and they were all joined together

In that one instant I could
feel you crushing me
but I didn't want to remember what it felt like

to be alive
and still feel so cold

in crayon and ink
what I understood the least
were these words not spoken
out of fear of the law
or self sacrifice

and I never thought that confirmation
would come in to play
and these words were never going to be on
the tip of your tongue

and I was locked in a place
that I'd never seen before
without windows but
with curtains hanging on the walls
and I was forced to believe
all I had
I had to self-deprivate
and I was proved wrong
when you came back

in a room filled with nothing
this table looked away from me
a kick to your foot and a twist of your head
and I saw that you were afraid
but if you think that I was just being cold
you don't know how scared I was

in crayon and ink
what I understood the least
were these words not spoken
out of fear of the law
or self sacrifice

and I never thought that confirmation
would come in to play
and these words were never going to be on
the tip of your...
Track Name: How Long
How Long

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

It took me so long to understand
who I needed to be for myself
and it took me too long to realize
that I didn't need anybody else
so now I'm sitting here in silence
and all I can feel is regret
and it seems to be so easy for you now
but its not so easy for me to forget

how long do I have to wait here?
you leave me standing in the cold
how long will it take you to remember
while you're still alive and growing old
I'm the only one who cares about you

so roll me over
shut me out
if that's what you feel possessed to do
whatever helps to get you through the night
yeah it may kill me
but I'll still love you

how long do I have to wait here
you leave me standing in the cold
how long will it take you to remember
while you're still alive and growing old
I'm the only one who cares about you

I am
I am the only one
I am
I am...

how long do I have to wait here
you leave me standing in the cold
how long will it take you to remember
while you're still alive and growing old
I'm the only one, I am the only one
I am

you leave me standing in the cold
how long will it take for you to realize
that I am gone?
Track Name: Running
Running

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

Verse 1

Granted I've been a fool before
But I've never felt
So completely insane
I know I've been here before
But I never saw this
For what it really was and

Pre chorus:

I hope that I can get my point across
I hope that I don't lie dormant in the shadows now
I know that I am running as fast as I can
But I know that that's not very fast at all

Chorus:

I am trying so hard to be something
That I just end up being nothing at all
So watch me as I stumble now
Watch me smile as I hit the ground

Verse 2

Every time that I knew the truth
I would just pretend
That I wasn't hiding
I'd tell myself that it's alright
I know myself
I think that's all that matters and

Pre-Chorus:

I hope that I can get my point across
I hope that I don't lie dormant in the shadows now
I know that I am running as fast as I can
And I know that that's not very fast at all

Chorus:

I am trying so hard to be something
That I just end up being nothing at all
So watch me as I stumble now
Watch me smile as I hit the ground

Bridge:

I always expect this
I always see it coming
I love it when it's faltering
I love it when it's failing
I know that there is
Most likely something wrong with that
But it's a part of who I am

At least I think that it might be, anyway...

I'm trying so hard to be something
That I just end up being nothing at all
So watch me as I stumble now
Watch me smile as I hit the ground

I'm trying so hard to be something
That I just end up being nothing at all
So watch me as I stumble now
Watch me smile as I hit the ground...

As I hit the ground...

Watch me smile as I hit the ground
Track Name: Pray for Rain
Pray For Rain

Words & Music by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe

The enemy in the mirror
Eyes of fire staring back at me
I am the judge the jury and the executioner
Of everything I've tried to be
And now I think I'm dying

I could pray for rain
I don't believe in anything
I have cried so long that I can't feel
I am dry, I am dry, I am

I'm in and out of consciousness
You want so badly to get through
If I can't even save myself
Then how am I supposed to save you
And I think you know that

I could pray for rain
But I don't believe in anything
I have cried so long that I can't feel
I am dry, I am dry, I am

So here I lay on the porcelain again
My mouth is dry and my hands are shaking
Now I do not know anything
Now I’m afraid to die

I could pray for rain
I don’t believe in anything
I have cried so long that I can’t feel
I am dry, I am dry, I am

I could pray for rain
I don’t believe in anything
And I have cried so long that I can’t feel
I am dry, I am dry, I am

I am

dry
Track Name: Playboy Mommy
Playboy Mommy

Words & Music by Tori Amos
As performed by Allison Crowe

In my platforms
I hit the floor
I fell face down
it didn't help my brain out

Then the baby came
before I found
the magic highs
to keep her happy

I never was the fantasy
of what you want
wanted me to be

Don't judge me so harsh little girl
so, you got a playboy mommy
Yeah, well, you just tell those soldiers my name
From here to Birmingham I got a few friends

I never was there, was there when it counts
You get my way
you're so like me
'seemed ashamed
ashamed that I was
a good friend of American soldiers

I'll say it loud here by your grave
those angels can't
ever take my place

Don't judge me so harsh little girl
so, you got a playboy mommy
Yeah, well, you just tell those soldiers my name

You want to cross that
Bridge all on your own
Little girl they'll do you no harm
'cause they know
your playboy mommy
You just tell 'em my name
I got a few friends

Somewhere where the orchids grow
I can't find those church bells
that played when you died
they played Gloria
we're talkin' bout
Hosannah

Don't judge me so harsh little girl
So, you got a playboy mommy
Yeah, well, you just tell those soldiers my name

You want to cross that
Bridge all on your own
Little girl they'll do you no harm
'cause they know
your playboy mommy

Well, I'll be home
Yes, I'll be home
to take you in my arms

Track Name: Finally
Finally

Words & Music by Allison Crowe & Stephen Clevette

I am broken
But I am still with you
I am traveling alone
But I can still see you here

And I hope that you can see me
Because I can't see anything but you

And I want you to come home
I've spent so many days here on my own
And I hope that you will see me
And with you I can finally be free

Your voice echoes in my mind
All that you have left behind
I am waiting by the phone
for you to realize that I am still here alone

And I hope that you can hear me now
Because I won't hear anything but you

And I want you to come home
I've spent so many days here on my own
And I hope that you will see me
And with you I can finally be free

And I want you to come home
I've spent so many days here on my own
And I hope that you will see me
And with you I can finally be free

And with you I can be free, finally.
Track Name: Disease
Disease

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

Stepping on
the thoughts of all pain
released from this anger
is some place I would like to be
and when I feel myself defeated
I bleed
and when I see them twist around
dancing in their own wake
I rage

And I don't want to exist on this plane
crashing down to the level of
depth of skin
flesh and bone
all wrapped up in pages
flashed in our faces
laughing and spiteful

Run away

Lost again
misdirected and folded
drowned in bones
and thrown away
they told me to disappear
and slowly dive
into the shallow end
of the gene pool

Try to hold on to what I believe
disappeared
no longer here as anything but
wretched and disfigured
so I slash myself again
and I drown my hopes again
lose myself in this disease

Lost again
misdirected and folded
drowned in bones
and thrown away
they told me to disappear
and slowly dive
into the shallow end
of the gene pool

Cut yourself to the mold
Nothing left to rid yourself of
but bile and blood
torn skin screaming
and silenced as we
replace marble with plastic

Lost again
misdirected and folded
drowned in bones
and thrown away
they told me to disappear
and slowly dive
into the shallow end
of the gene pool
Track Name: Secrets
Secrets

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

verse 1
you know I hold these in
and I take them for myself
I'm covered in guilt
but it's not my own

there isn't any reason
for me to feel like I'm dying
I'm done with being afraid
I'm done with lying

chorus:
and I am not an angel
I'm more like Mona Lisa
there's something hiding in me
there's always something behind my smile

and I know that I'm not perfect
and maybe I am the court jester
I'm the life of the party
and I know too much about the court...

I have these secrets that aren't my own

verse 2
so take this how you want to
I'm not here to judge you
I just want to be in love with you
I just want to forget myself

i want to just be ignorant
please take this pain away from me
down to the river and out to the sea
down to the river and out to the sea

chorus:
and I am not an angel
I'm more like Mona Lisa
there's something hiding in me
there's always something behind my smile

and I know that I'm not perfect
yeah, I am the court jester
I'm the life of the party
and I know too much about the court...

I have these secrets that aren't my own

verse 3
it's too far to reach.
but I'm too scared to let go.
it's too close to ignore
but I feel so far away now

I'm crawling in the ceiling
I'm scratching through the walls
I'm trying to scream
but my own hand is on my throat

chorus:
And I am not an angel
I'm more like Mona Lisa
there's something hiding in me
there's always something behind my smile

and I want to be like Venus
to just bare it all and face the world
but I'm tangled in these blankets
I'm caught in between the lines

I have these secrets that aren't my own
Track Name: I Dreamed a Dream
I Dreamed A Dream

Words & Music by Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schönberg
As performed by Allison Crowe

[FANTINE]
There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong

I dreamed a dream in days gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame

He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when Autumn came

And still I dream he'd come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this Hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
Track Name: Imagine
Imagine

Words & Music by John Lennon
As performed by Allison Crowe

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possessions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one
Track Name: Me and Bobby McGee
Me and Bobby McGee

Words & Music by Fred Foster & Kris Kristofferson
As performed by Allison Crowe

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train
An' I's feeling nearly as faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained
I headed all the way to New Orleans

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues, Lord
Windshield wipers slapping time, I was holding Bobby's hand in mine
We sang every song the driver knew

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
Ah, nothing, honey if it ain't free, Lord

Feeling good was easy, Lord,
when he sang the blues
Feeling good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun
Yeah, Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Through all kinds of weather, through everything we done
Yeah, Bobby baby kept me from the cold

I pulled up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away
He's lookin' for that home, and I hope he finds it
Well, I'd trade all my tomorrows for one single yesterday
To be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
Ah, nothing, well that's all that Bobby left me, Lord

Feeling good was easy, Lord
when he sang the blues
Feeling good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.
