"Leave the City" as written by and Jason Molina....
it broke my heart to leave the city
i mean it broke what wasn't
broken in there already
but all my great reasons
for leavin' now i can't think of any
it's true was a hard time
that i come through
and i'm still thankful for the blues

half my life spent on a highway
half my life i didn't choose
i have seen the north star
shining in the freightyard
and i knew it was a hard time
but it came through
it made him thankful for the blues

it broke my heart to know you waiting
i had so many things to do
it's true as far as a lot of stuff
you could have had a little better luck
but with you i'm not givin' up
tonight i'm not givin' up

    General CommentJust was watching a set from 2007 and looked this up. Made me sad that I was the first person to comment on such a beautiful song.

    RIP, Jason. I'm still thankful for the blues. Tonight I'm not givin up.
