TITLE (EDIT)
Cairo Revolution Songs
DESCRIPTION
These songs were created as blues compositions but could fit other genres -- country, r and b, straight rock; "Last Man in Cairo" could be done slow, a lament. These songs came from the gut when I was finishing up my 12th year in Cairo and witnessing anguish on the street and in my heart. I was seeing human nature unfold in harsh, sometimes poignantly naked ways. I'm a writer (and translator), but I'd never been visited by the song muse until I was living through these days.

Last Man in Cairo (title)

Thereís a peculiar way of talkiní
Where the truth ainít what it seems
Sometimes you could say itís lying
Sometimes itís the actual thing

Now I hear the preacher man mutter
Ďstead of calliní to noontime prayers
and there ainít no cars on Main Street
but thereís a jet right over my head.

You can talk about your big cities
Iíve lived in Ďem one by one
But you canít know the way Iím feeliní
ĎTil thereís no place left to run.

Iím the loneliest man in Cairo, baby.
Thatís the truth thatís going around
It donít matter Ďbout the 20 million
If your loved ones ainít in town.

Iím the last man in Cairo, baby,
Itís beginning to feel like a slog
Iím wonderiní where all the people are gone
While Iím out here walking my dog.

Well, it wouldnít be so bad in Pine Ridge, Georgia
Where there ainít many souls any way
But Iím a long, long way from home
And Iím feeliní down today.

Yeah, Iím lost in the Arab City, not an Arab
Bone in my hand, and I heard the news today,
ĎBoy, get on out of our land.
You ainít on no census, stupid,
You donít have no group-invite,
You got a danged good reason to beat it
And do or donít that dog bite?í

Yeah, Iím the last man in Cairo, baby,
Send me my ticket back
20 million all around me
but Iím haviní a heart attack.



Shame Youíre a Target Now (title)

Most of lifeís in the small things
And you do them well
Or not
But thereís one more thing worth
                                         Counting
Itís not a Ďdo,í itís a Ďgotí

Have you got a dollar or donít you?
Have you got red hair or white?
Do you kneel to pray to Allah
Or do you light a prayer wheel
                                      At night?

What is it youíve got on your face,
Is that white, tan, pink or black?
I wonder if you got a license,
We might have to send you back.

Yeah, baby, you are so many things,
So many things beautiful and right,
Itís a doggone shame you
                              Got to be a target,
Well, you better learn how to fight

It might be thereís a lot of sniffing
When you standing in the check-out line,
You might get a look on the sidewalk
And a Ďbetter watch your behind.í

Yeah, thereís all kinds of trouble brewing
That you cannot understand
Thatís because it ainít what youíre
                                            Doing
No, see, youíre a certain kind
                                            Of man

It sure is a shame being a target, baby,
Most of us been there once or twice
But now that you know whatís happening,
Youíd better sing these blues tonight:

ĎI am a target, you all, and I want the world
                                               to know
my lifeís turned upside down,
I feel like Iím fixing to blow
How can I stay around
How can I just be me
When a hundred other people
Think Iím not where Iím supposed
                               To be?

ĎYeah-yeah, Iím a target, momma,
and it surely is a drag
canít put my mind on tomorrow
when Iím in somebody elseís bag.

Fadeout talking:
You know, Iíve been
Feeling funny around here, like
I grew a second nose or
Something. You know what Iím saying?
Just funny.
I could have sworn the other day
I felt somebodyís finger
Drawing a big circle on my back
Then a quick poke, right in the
Center. Hey, thatís my
Heart, man. Howís that supposed to
Make a person feel? Öyeah,
I know. Haha. Target. Sure nuff.
I believe Iím fixing to blow
This place. Yeah, I know.
Itís a shame. Agree with you
All the way on thatÖ
           Yeah, yeah
           Yeah, yeahÖ
