"The Long Cut" as written by and Jeffrey Scott Tweedy....
I've been searching and you've been gone
Out looking for the shortest path to the one that you're on
And I've already seen all I want to see
Come on, let's take the long cut
I think that's what we need
When we were younger, we were strong
We felt a lot better than the things that we'd done
Now if it's to be, if you still believe
Come on let's take the long cut
I think that's what we need
If you want to take the long cut

We'll get there eventually
I've been searching and you've been gone
Out looking for the shortest path to the one you're on
Now if it's to be, if you still believe
Come on let's take the long cut
I think that's what we need
We've been in a deep rut
And it's been killing me
If you want to take the long cut
We'll get there eventually

    General CommentMy friend's aunt inspired this song.

    Outside of that, it's probably my third favorite Tupelo song.

    General CommentI've never had the chance to see Uncle Tupelo/Son Volt/Wilco in concert. Does Wilco still do this or any other Uncle Tupelo songs in concert.

    General CommentTweedy will do them in his acoustic sets every so often, but I haven't heard Wilco do a full band Tupelo song since the 90s
