    We got two men talkin' right outside my door. Yeah. We got two men talkin' right outside my door. Said they made my boy a soldier. Sent him off to war. Well, are youse gonna stand? No, I can't say for sure. No, I can't. Well, I got one wheel turning. One that's off the tracks. Well, I got one wheel turning. One that's off the tracks. I can put all I own inside a paper sack. Well when the hard times come, you're gonna see who's got your back. Sure will. Yeah, I lost that good woman. Lord, she left me twice. Yeah, I lost that good woman. Lord, she left me twice. Well, I shoulda tried much harder. Tried to treat her nice. I used to be someone that I don't recognise. Ain't that true. Well, we got two men talkin'. Talking by the rule. Well, we got two men talkin'. Talking by the rule. Well, they put me down. And it hurt more than it showed. I heard one man laugh. Said "Brother, we tread a heavy load." That's right. ... Is my guess. Hope this helps you!

    An internet search turns up ... Nothing. Well, nothing remotely close to complete. Looking for everything that has been officially released, both studio and live,. Albums, b-sides, compilations, VHS and DVDs, fan club releases, even "gray area" stuff like the King Biscuit Flower Hour shows sent to radio stations If it's by Tom Petty or Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers., I'm trying to chase it down Has anyone compiled the list of all lists? I would be so appreciative for the help in finding out what I'm still missing!

    It's still fun to sue, though. Gives you a reason to get out of bed in the morning.

    Because when I think publications of great musical journalism, I think of VH1 and Billboard lmao. Hell, Rolling Stone had the gall to have Kurt Cobain be in their original "Top 100 Guitarist List of All Time". You may not like them as much as other bands, music taste is subjective. However, The Byrds influence and defining role as an act is not subjective. Just because not as many people are aware of someone like John Prine who never has been a pop icon, doesn't mean his work isn't well respected and beloved by people who know music.

    I think maybe swap "youth" for "youse", and "road" for "rule", and you're pretty close. But this song is a good example of Tom just riffing words as he goes. Making stuff up on the fly. He was really good at that. It's easier to catch the lyrics when you can watch him sing. Check out the "Soundstage" version of this song and the lyrics are quite different. He's mixing and matching parts of verses together. I also love Mike's little tribute to Jerry in his solo. At least that's what it conjures up for me. Mike's got his "Lucy" Les Paul and also does this sweet bit with just harmonics. Very cool. Ben also goes off for a while, something like Melinda. Which makes some sense in that they're pretty similar songs, and both one-chord songs. Well we got 2 men talking..........talkin' by the road yeah we got 2 men talking.........talkin' by the road I heard one man say.....boy I'm carrying a heavy load yeah I heard one man say......brother I'm carrying a heavy load Yeah I got one wheel turnin'.........and one won't go around yeah we got one wheel turnin'.........and one won't go around yes when my work dries up.......I'm gonna try another town yes when this work dries up ......I'm gonna try another town Yeah I got 2 men talkin'............talkin' right outside my door yeah we got 2 men talkin'.........right outside my door said they made my boy a soldier........and they sent him off to war yeah they made my boy a soldier.......and they sent him off to war......sure did Yeah I got 2 men talkin'............talkin' right outside my door yeah I got 2 men talkin'.........right outside my door I heard one man say.....brother I'm carrying a heavy load yeah I heard one man say......I'm carrying a heavy load......and he was

    As it's written above, the first verse doesn't make much sense if it really is Well, are youse gonna stand? Unless maybe... It might make more sense if we hear this as an old-style blues call & response. And if we do, then who's in the first verse & what's giving them their grief? We got two men talkin' right outside my door. Yeah. We got two men talkin' right outside my door. Said they made my boy a soldier. Sent him off to war. Said they made my boy a soldier. Sent him off to war. Well, are youse gon uh'stand? No, I can't say for sure. No, I can't. No, I can't say for sure. No, I can't. Military police on the front steps outside family's screen-door. They're saying the son's army unit is being deployed to a war zone. Maybe also, this is happening during compulsory military conscription, such as during the Vietnam War? They made my boy a soldier Emotional response within parents... trying to come to terms with this news. Understand makes more sense than just stand. So, full sentence might be: Well, are you going to understand? But with TP singing with an accent & fitting the words into the rhythm it begins to sound more like: Well, are youse gon uh'stand? Then sense of family being overwhelmed in grief & crying "No, oh no, no... I will never understand why my son has to go off to war" (Could easily be wrong, but kinda feels true for me.)

    I was pretty bummed to notice at 4PM sunday that the Film was being screened in Cambridge MA about 60 min away- at 5pm with a Q&A with Jacob and a live performance after that. Sadly I was on my way to the airport and couldn't detour. what made me sadder is there seemed to be several screenings in Boston with the Q&A so keep a close eye on their FB page for events like this near you. Seems they are on some kind of tour.

    Words on Take The Highway: Live!

    OK, so basically my notes missed their marks on all accounts.. Sorry about that. Bottom line is that you are right. It was very special. A high point. Extremely great. But that is beside the point with my post. Basically I just wanted to nuance the communicated opinion that this tour, this film, feature the "original band". At least to me, realizing that it's not, makes the whole TPATH enterprise stand out a bit more as "ever-changing", "ever-evolving" and as such less dramatic, is all. If there is one before and one after, I would suggest that there is several befores and several afters too, the way it goes with time, people as with art. I just tried to put some perspective on you guys' built up, really. I know that is none of my business, and I should have saved myself the problem of excusing myself and explaining, not to mention the unpleasure of offend people, had I just let it all be, but I got stuck on the wording there (which was initially not even yours!). Again sorry. Your take on history is your take. Never mind me. I realize (or counted on) you were not actually crying, that was just a silly way to say "if you still find it melancholy, that's fine of course, I do see the overall idea here". After all these years, I should have know better than trying attitude in my writing, right. Point taken. As for hype - I just meant that TPATH were on a commercial peak, very "cool" and very "happening" in most music press and among most rock fans. At least around here, that was the case around 91/92. He seemingly could do no wrong, he was the cat with the hat and everybody, including people who really didn't have much clue, loved him for the time being. Everybody was taking turns in praising him. Tons of good will, cool vibes, sunshine and sing along radio hits.. he was even a friend of Bob's, Roy's and George's (sure, Jeff's too) and that was cred by most standards around that time.. It was "hip" to like Tom Petty around here in 1989, 1990, 1991 and 1992.. and still pretty awesome in 1993, 1994, 1995 too, before all the coolness of it all, all the writing and record selling, slowly started to dwindle some.. (None of this did ever imply that there was no substance to back it up, surely!! Or that all the love or the product itself was in any way superficial! No! There can be content behind a hype, can it not?) So, instead of writing all that right there ^, I went with the word "hype". (Just ponder that most words I write carry that kinda s*it with them... oh golly.. no wonder there are mishaps in the transmission..) Again, I probably shouldn't have. Apparently I don't know what hype even mean. How about "peaked in general popularity on all levels"? That works?

    Call it what you like... it was a high point before things took a different direction, and therefore a goodbye. Which was great in its own right, but different. Not sure about the "hype" part, though. Sounds like there was not much of substance behind Tom, the band, and/or their music. I think we're all on the same page here that the period between 1988 and 1995 is among their best - commercially and creatively. I didn't.

    It's only the fully automatic e-scooters being banned. You can still have semi-auto e-scooters. You know - to protect yourself from all of those walkers out there. You never know when you might need to take out a horde of them.

    Roberts bankrolled the MCA lawsuit. Petty credits him with giving him the pivotal career advice to focus on quality, not commercial success. He told Petty all his albums couldn't be hits "but they can all be good." "Focus on the product."
