Joni Mitchell Free Man In Paris

[video=youtube;jQj6h8KpkiQ]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQj6h8KpkiQ[/video]

The way I see it, he said, you just can't win it
Everybody's in it for their own gain
You can't please them all
There's always somebody callin' you down

I do my best and I do good business
There;s a lot of people asking for my time
They're trying to get ahead
They're tryin' to be a good friend of mine

I was a free man in Paris,
I felt unfettered and alive
There was nobody calling me up for favors
And no one's future to decide

You know I'd go back there tomorrow
But for the work I'm taking on
Stoking the star maker machinery
Behind the popular song


I deal in dreamers and telephone screamers
Lately I wonder what I do it for
If I had my way
I'd just walk through those doors
And wander down the Champs-Élysées
Going café to cabaret
Thinking how I'll feel when I find
That very good friend of mine

I was a free man in Paris
I felt unfettered and alive
Nobody was calling me up for favors
No one's future to decide

You know I'd go back there tomorrow
But for the work I've taken on
Stoking the star-maker machinery
Behind the popular song

Coal Miner's daughter...Loretta Lynn

True story.

I was raised ~ 1 hour from her home place in Johnson County, Ky called Butcher Hollow(we pronounce it holler). A few years ago, the wifey, my M-I-L and your's truly went and took a tour of the house she was raised in. One of her brothers, can't remember his name, still lives within yellin' distance of that house and does tours through it. Boy, he's a talker, too. But I liked him a lot, seeing I am quite the talker, too. It was neat. It was like taking a time machine back to the 1940's-1950's.
