Thank you to Dylan for showing me this song this morning. I like the introduction so much, because it follows such an understandable train of thought.
"Folk music is high class music, though there is a lot of low class people singing it. Matter of fact, most so-called folk singers don't even look like folk. Folk song tells true stories, but terrible stories. Because folk are terrible. Terrible songs make big songs. Why do you think kids like rock and roll? Because it's terrible! Do you think they are going to listen to the Philadelphia Symphony? A hundred and one strings? Why do you think I like Cocaine?"
