"Baloney Again" as written by and Mark Knopfler....
We don't eat in no white restaurants
We're eating in a car
Baloney again, baloney again
We don't sleep in no white hotel bed
We're sleeping in a car, baloney again
You don't strut around in these country towns
You best stay in the car
Look on ahead don't stare around
You best stay where you are
You're a long way from home, boy
Don't push your luck too far
Baloney again

Twenty-two years we've sung the word
Since nineteen thirty-one
Amen, I say amen
Now the young folk want to praise the Lord
With guitar, bass and drums, amen
Well I'll never get tired of Jesus
But it's been a heavy load
Carrying His precious love
Down a long dirt road
We're a long way from home
Just let's pay the man and go
Baloney again

The Lord is my sheperd
He leadeth me in pastures green
He gave us this day
Our daily bread and gasoline
Go under the willow
Park her up beside the stream
Shoulders for pillows
Lay down your head and dream
Shoulders for pillows
Lay down your head and dream

    General CommentI really love the sentiments expressed in this song - so many to experience. The last verse just beams beauty and honesty:

    The lord is my shepherd, He leadeth me in pastures green
    He gave us this day, Our daily bread and gasoline
    Go under the willow, Park her up beside the stream
    Shoulders for pillows, Lay down your head and dream
    Shoulders for pillows, Lay down your head and dream

    Just beautiful, leaning on each other, with little else to get by on, in a rough world.

    General Commentthis song is about discrimination against African American people, from the point of someone feeling its sting, during around the time of Rosa Parks. Its a great song, and very inspirational, making discrimination and racism of any kind just seem so pointless and futile, like it really is.

    General CommentInspired by an old black guy who Mark knew who explained that touring the Southern states in a choir required a certain sacrifise to apartheid

    General CommentI agree with Rodan2000. The characters appear to be on some kind of musical and/or religious tour, possibly from the Northern States where open discrimination is much less widespread?
