"Pissin' in my yard ain't gonna make yours any greener" - Bumped

The title is a line from the new song by blog favorite Kacey Musgraves. I heard it for the first time today, on the radio. My thought was, "Damn, that is TEA Party Liberation Theology right there." We need to encourage her to record a duet with Snoop Dog. Play it in Baltimore. Chicago. Brooklyn.

"Pourin' salt in my sugar won't make yours any sweeter."

A-dang-men. The chorus is good too but I won't excerpt. You'll have to listen. (Like you don't want to listen anyway.) This video looks like a bootleg from a live show in Florida. And a damn fine bootleg too.

This music blogger was impressed too.

Studio version here.

UPDATE: The linked studio version has been yanked, but here is the official video instead. And what the heck, let's bump it too.

The lovely, talented, and philosophically pure Ms. Musgraves has graced these pages before.

The bootleg is Purdy good, I like the studio -- better audio ( plus one more verse?)

A YouTube commenter named David says "nice song hope she doesnt make a smutty video out of it keep pure"

Huh, we can't all agree on everything I guess...

Yep, see the "blog favorite" hyperlink above. Just prior to the "Liberation Theology" hyperlink, to an academic post without a 'pretty girl with guitar' video.

In fairness, I haven't gotten around to reading this weekend's Review Corner effort either.

No extra verse. Played 'em both at the same time to find out. :)

D'oh! I did not see that one. I will confess that I expected the "This music blogger" to link to ThreeSources.

"I'll just do me, honey, you just do you." If that ain't a libertarian manifesto...
