Randy Newman, Louisiana 1927…

Do the words of this Randy Newman song ring any bells with anyone else in the current climate ?  Floods.. inaction by politicians.. people suffering

He is one of my favourite singer songwriters, I have a lot of his music and he is getting on a bit now too…  His voice isn’t up to much but his lyrics and melodies are just great, in my opinion anyway.  His words always tell a story and usually about social injustices in some way or another.  I was just listening to some his songs on shuffle on my iPod and this one popped up and I thought as it was topical I would share it with you..

For anybody reading this later on I should point out that we were suffering floods all over the country at the time and people were forced out of their homes..
