Tonight I Feel So Far Away From Home…By Bill Kauffman for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
This Christmas–like last Christmas, and the one before that , and the one before that….–hundreds of thousands of our countrymen and women are far from their homes and families, fighting the endless wars and otherwise serving the anti-American Empire. (Obscenely, mothers are even separated from their young children.) Herewith three songs about Christmas and distance: one by a Texas outlaw (http://youtu.be/2IpckS2ZiXw), another by an Arkansas traveler (http://youtu.be/w7HVtZhx6XU), and a third by a sweet girl from Akron, Ohio (http://youtu.be/Nmx3QC7n6sk). Merry Christmas.
