If I Needed You

Skip this posting if you don’t like any or all of the following:

1) Emmylou Harris
2) Steve Earle
3) Townes Van Zandt
4) Mushy songs

But I like it so it stays.

If I Needed You, written by the late Townes Van Zandt and performed as a duet by Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle, finishes with an appearance by Townes…

If you needed me I would come to you
I would swim the seas, for to ease your pain


  1. Just because you warned me to skip it, I refuse to skip it. But since I didn't skip it, I am now wishing that I did skip it. I am left with the thought of 'If I did skip it, would I be in this much pain as I am in since I did not skip it?' So being that I skipped to skip the part that you told me to skip, I must now skip the part where I tell you that you were right to tell me to skip it because I did not like what was going to be posted.

    So is it now too late to skip that of which you forwarned me to skip but I failed to skip?

    I think now, therefore, I skip.

  2. Awaiting: Exactly how much vodka have you consumed tonight?

  3. None...this is me about to log off and go to bed.

    Insomnia rots the brain.

    Which reminds me, iffin you found a cure, please share.

  4. Skipping like a giant kangaroo with a rocket up its ass.

  5. Vicus: Good for you Vicus. Let Awaiting's misfortune be a lesson to you. We can't all be Emmylou/Earle/TVZ fans.

  6. Terrific song, MJ.

    Loving seeing you show your sensitive, heretofore less visible side that's very clearly there.

    Not that we don't love you just the way you are...

  7. WW: Fucking hell, what sensitive side, dammit?
