Song Description

Slow gospel blues song with great vocalist. Sounds like it could have been recorded at Antone's in Austin.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song November 2001. After 9/11, after anthrax, after the Patriot Act my grandmother Millie died. This song is for her.

Lyrics

It's been a great week in the land of the sunshine.
It's been a great week in the home of the free.
It's been a great week for the children that play by the seaside
It's been a great week, Lord, but not for me.

It's been a great week for the corporate interests.
They got permission to chop down more trees.
It's been a great week for the factories and their fiery red smokestacks.
It's been a great week, Lord, but not for me.

No, it's been a long one, and it's not over yet.
So much has happened, I'd rather forget.
This week I realized that I'm nothing but the man I used to be.
It's been a great week, Lord, but not for me.

It's been a great week for the real estate agents.
And for the lawyers that handle our pleas.
It's been a great week for the sheriff and his bail bondsman brothers.
It's been a great week, Lord, but not for me.

It's been a great week for all those musicians.
They got their records on KNBT.
It's been a great week for the beer joints that prop up my daytime.
It's been a great week, Lord, but not for me.

No, it's been a long one, and it's not over yet.
So much has happened, I'd rather forget.
This week I realized that I'm nothing but the man I used to be.
It's been a great week, Lord, but not for me.
