The Long Ryders Were Psychic

And that makes me think of this: Whichever ’08 candidate who uses The Long Ryders’ “Looking for Lewis and Clark” as their campaign theme will get my immediate vote.

This song made it through the wire to me at an early age, late at night on classic rock radio: “I thought I saw my president walking in Harlem late after dark”

“I was thinking of the late Tim Hardin” — just that lyric alone was great — “No one gave tim a reason to believe/so he just packed his bags and leave” –yeah. Of course, I had no idea who they were talking about until I was older.
