Dear Mitt Romney, “It’s All Gone”

To commemorate the South Carolina primary, I’m dedicating this lovely music video to Mitt Romney.  Somehow I have a hard time imagining Mitt in all his mannequin-likeness being able to get a groove on, but that’s okay.  The rest of us have enough to share.  I’m guessing that Mittens doesn’t even know Chris Rea let alone considers him to be in the 1% (who knows, maybe he is!) but if not, then you know what Mitt says,  “. . .those people who have been most successful will be in the one percent….”

Enjoy possibly the greatest slide guitar solo ever!  (I actually stole that comment from a fan comment on YouTube — I happen to agree)   If this doesn’t make you want to dance, there’s just no hope for you.

Lyrics:

A careless heart ain’t no good to no-one
I was going back my friends to see
Of what became of my childhood daydreams
Of all the things that used to be
To my surprise I stood alone
I walked a river of a waking dream
My father say ‘Know what you’re thinking’
I guess this old town seen better days

It’s all gone
Ain’t nothing for you here now
Sail on

You talk of change, something better
Cutting down that big old tree
There’s flesh and blood in there somewhere
But no matter what you just don’t seem to see
I walk your chambers, your empty halls
I see you talking behind the doors
My father say ‘Know what you’re thinking’
I guess this old town seen better days

It’s all gone
Ain’t nothing for you here now
Sail on

I’m sailing on, I’m running faster
Than I ever run before
My father say ‘Know what you’re thinking’
I guess this old town seen better days
Sail on

Peace!
