"D. Boon" as written by and Jay Farrar Jeff Tweedy....
Do you remember, remember D. Boon
Part of what he was is a part of me now and if you think back, where would he be
Where would I be if time had allowed

This isn't written for any one man it's about me
This isn't written for anyone alive just the songs that he sang

I've been told that it's a waste of time
Well, so what
Will it be worth mine

And if Managua's bullets don't fly young men still would die for glory
Or for their countries
It's just me and Jay
Playing our guitars along with it all

This isn't written for any one man it's about me
This isn't written for anyone alive just the songs that he sang

And I'm not old
So I've got nothing but time to waste will it be worth mine
