Old Folkies at Home

Callin’ up talk radio complainin’ on the phone
Everybody gets their fifteen minutes to moan

Yeah, the old folkies at home
Sittin’ on a sofa all alone 
Watchin’ the world news
Where’d it all go wrong?
Pointin’ the remote another station flicks on 
For the old folkies at home
And, it’s women who love men who loved folk music
Who’ve lived t’ see Hattie Carroll played out in reverse
In the carnival courtrooms where justice puts
Another (a different)  tragicomedy mask on
For the old folkies at home
The old folkies at home
Livin’ in the aftermath of an 
Age, that’s so unknowin’
Of everything they worked for … and 
Sang about in song, yes, the old folkies at home
