"Cable Hogue" as written by and John Davies Cale....
Traffic moving slowly monday morning
Money talks, people hoping
Cable hogue where've you been
Cable hogue where've you been

Something inside me tells me you won't show
I know you're carrying heat
What for god only knows
Cable why'd you leave me
Cable hogue where've you been
I just wanted to say goodbye
So much to say goodbye
Wanted to say goodbye to all my friends in case i die

Need to go to georgia, got a bank to blow
Living ain't easy, but it's much harder when it's slow
Cable wish you were with me now
Cable hogue where've you been
You know they're looking for you down south
And all you've got to do is go down there
And open your big fat mouth
Cable you can't leave me here like this
Cable please...

    General CommentThis is a song about a couple of faggot bandits, as Cale once said. It's a song about the thread of trust between men who commit crimes together, and how that thread is stretched to the breaking point by forces neither of them can control or understand. They may both understand why their separation is necessary, but that doesn't make it any easier to take. It's a song about the eventual impossibility of love in the context of a society based upon laws. Without the opportunity to break those laws together, the love couldn't be so strong. But because those laws are imperishable and inexclusive, the relationship becomes impossible in the long run. Love outlasts the relationship. And all you've got to do is go down there and open your big, fat mouth. If I saw you again, I wouldn't know whether to hug your or kill you. Love, in the end, is a messy liability, and all that makes life worth living.
