Lucinda Williams – Seeing Black

A song spawned in reaction to the suicide of Vic Chesnutt, harsh and straight-forward.

The ending guitar solo is provided by…Elvis Costello.  Yes, that Elvis Costello, and no, I didn’t know he could play guitar like that either.  Technique wise, he’s no Steve Vai (obviously), but he rips it out in the style of Neil Young (in fact, if I hadn’t read it was Elvis Costello, I would have bet at least $124 it was Neil Young).

Did you feel your act was a final truth
The dramatic ending of a misspent youth
Did you really feel you had all the proof
Did you feel your act was a final truth

Was it hard to finally pull the plug
Was it hard to receive that final hug
Did evil triumph over love
Was it hard to finally pull the plug

When did you start seeing black
Was it too much good you felt you lacked
Was it too much weight riding on your back
When did you start seeing black


Enjoy
