And Stood There Amazed
The Ian Tyson record I bought yesterday was "And Stood There Amazed." 1991. Cannot hardly describe how good it is. Makes me want to go out and punch the first urban cowboy I see in the fucking head and take his girl away for a long weekend in a cheap motel in Lacombe.
Pretty much the whole record is written by Tyson with the exception of "Home On the Range." I had forgotten what a great song that is. When the wolves join in at the end of the song it is fucking magic.
My country is being ruined by a bunch of motherfucking assholes from Alberta. Ian Tyson is not one of them.
He is one of us.
Go buy all his fucking records.
