Hardnose The Highway

Great lyrics from Van Morrison’s Hardnose The Highway:

Put your money where your mouth is
Then we can get something going
In order to win you must be prepared to lose sometime
And leave one or two cards showing

There’s something to be said for having to earn a song. Earning the right to sing a song. I can see sometimes why Van was so pissed off. People pay a lot of lip service to a lot of nice ideas, but who really puts their money where their mouth is? Who’s willing to get their hands dirty? Who’s willing to tend a garden for their food? Rare birds. Rare birds.
