Last Friday, I was sitting at work sort of daydreaming and sort of staring at Occupy Herbstreit, and a song that the Cowboy had played for me over the summer slithered into my head. It was called “Too Big To Fail”, and it was something he’d written about the bank bailouts a couple of years ago but never recorded.
Because even though we’ve split, I am still a bossy bitch, so I texted him and told him he needed to record it and spread it around. Because he still likes me even though I’m stubborn and bossy, he did it. And I’ve got it.
If Occupy Wall Street needs a Woody Guthrie-style folk-twang protest song, and they do, this is the one for them:
[Slingshot Cash — “Too Big To Fail”] you’re too big to fail, you’re too big to fail/i guess you think that you’re too big to go to jail
The lyrics are over here, and if you dig it, pass that ReverbNation link to stream the track on.
This revolution is, of course, being Twittered and Tumbled.
