Here is an original Southern Fried tune about the social unrest in America. Dylan is too old to do it I guess, so I will. HA. Using BIAB , drums, bass, piano, some rhythm guitars. I added vocals, lead guitars . Enjoy Cliff

Well written (good message) and nice vocal and guitar performances.

Now wait a minute...Dylan is not that old...I keep telling myself.

Enjoyed it!

Nice symmetry to the lyrics. Good harmony as well.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

This is fabulous.
My only nit is that there're a few aggressive phrase starts in the vocal that could be tamed a TINY bit.
