Make Your Own Music

 

“Make your own music. Write your own songs about the things you care about.” – Pete Seeger

I’m still an Avett Brothers novice, but this is exactly what they do. They write what they care about. And the thing is, it’s what a lot of other people care about, too.

For example:

I And Love And You

…One foot in and one foot back
But it don’t pay to live like that
So I cut the ties and I jumped the tracks
For never to return…

When at first I learned to speak
I used all my words to fight
With him and her and you and me
Oh but it’s just a waste of time
Yeah it’s such a waste of time…

…Three words that became hard to say
I and love and you
