Let Them Eat Shit

"Up in San Antonio all the pretty people know
They better stay off of the west side where the black tar flows
They hide in their sheltered enclaves up around Olmos Park
They got their own policeman so they can stay out way past dark

Back down in Piedras Negras, the children play with dirt
We keep our pistols loaded so we don't get hurt
No importa a nadie, it's always been that way
Never gonna get no different, long as we got our say

Stay on the safe side
Stay on the safe side"
---Safe Side, from the album Candyland

Via Crooks and Liars. I used to love James McMurtry. He was always eloquent. Now he's just devastating:

Thanks also to YouTube, for changing the face of communication.
