Pre-order/stream: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/sam-bush/radio-john-songs-of-john-hartford Bandcamp: https://sambush.bandcamp.com/album/radio-john-songs-of-john-hartford All other platforms: https://orcd.co/sam-bush-john-hartford 'Radio John: Songs of John Hartford' is Sam Bush’s heartfelt tribute to his hero and mentor, John Hartford. With dedication, admiration, and love, Bush takes on personal favorites from Hartford’s vast catalog, including songs he played with Hartford on stage and in the studio in the 1970s. Bush plays every instrument on nearly every cut, pouring himself into the performances. 'Radio John' is a testament to the impact Hartford had on American traditional music as a songwriter, an instrumentalist, and, most importantly, someone who fostered the careers of musicians like Bush and countless others reinventing roots music in the last half of the 20th century. Lyrics: Someday, my baby, when I am a man And others have taught me the best that they can They'll sell me a suit then cut off my hair And send me to work in tall buildings So it's goodbye to the sunshine Goodbye to the dew Goodbye to the flowers And goodbye to you I'm off to the subway I must not be late I'm going to work in tall buildings Oh when I retire My life is my own I made all the payments It's time to go home And wonder what happened Betwixt and between When I went to work in tall buildings So it's goodbye to the sunshine Goodbye to the dew Goodbye to the flowers And goodbye to you I'm off to the subway I must not be late Going to work in tall buildings So it's goodbye to the sunshine Goodbye to the dew Goodbye to the flowers And goodbye to you I'm off to the subway I must not be late I'm going to work in tall buildings Sam Bush: https://www.sambush.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sambushband Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sambushband Twitter: https://twitter.com/sam_bush Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/smithsonianfolkwaysrecordings Twitter: https://twitter.com/Folkways Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/smithsonianfolkways/ Support our work!
