Tomorrow is Memorial Day, so I thought I’d blog “Memorial Day” by James McMurtry off of his critically acclaimed album Childish Things. It doesn’t focus so much on the reason for the holiday as the dysfunctional dynamics of holiday family get-togethers. Here’s the chorus:
It’s Memorial Day in America
Everybody’s on the road
Let’s remember our fallen heroes
Y’all be sure and drive slow
Here are the full lyrics and the song. And here’s a list of VC readers’ prior Memorial Day Sunday Song Lyric suggestions.
