Two Characters in Search of a Country Song Lyrics - The Magnetic Fields

Review The Song (2)



You were just like me
you were one big bruise
In the game of life with your playing too lose
You were Jessy James
I was William Tell
You were Daniel Webster
I was the devil himself

Two characters in search of a country song
Just make believe, but so in love
Two characters been listin' all night long
for voices from Nashville above

Hell in eighteen wheels
at a hundred per
We went crashing through the Jersey barrier
But the road went on
over dale and hill
sponsored links
You were Calamity Jane
and I was Wild Bill

Two characters in search of a country song
Just make believe, but so in love
Two characters been listin' all night long
for voices from Nashville above


Two characters in search of a country song
Just make believe, but so in love
Two characters been listin' all night long
for voices from Nashville above

Ed is short-sighted | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/17/12

This other review of the song by Ed is short-sighted. Merritt's lyrics VERY OFTEN deal with gender fluidity. In "Old Orchard Beach," for instance, the lyrics read: "You were a little girl with starry eyes / Now you're a sad young man and no one knows why." : P

Is there a gender issue? | Reviewer: Ed | 12/23/10

I haven't listened to the song, but read the lyrics. Being strong on lyrics, I thought the pairing of names peculiar, since it was Jesse James/William tell; Daniel Webster/Devil himself...then listed Calamity Jane/Wild Bill. Male-male-female. The small things that shoot a song down.
