Angie Aparo

How slack am I? I just found out Angie Aparo has released about 2 albums since “The American” one my favourite albums of all time. If you haven’t heard of him, you probably heard “Cry” which Faith Hill made popular. Its the only song by him I despise! Anyways, check out his website at Angie Aparo. This album reminded me of America and my life around September 11th.

The American also has one of favourite albums covers:

Heres the lyrics to the song that pull on me heartstrings:

The American by Angie Aparo

Sonny took a train

Mary took a boat

Somewhere it’s gonna be better

Everybody needs a little hope

Ten thousand souls

Waiting on a bus and it never rolled

So it goes…

No one’s leaving California

Pacific transit overload

Gold dust dreamers never warn ya

And my guitar strums

I am The American

I got a walking stick

And an old sock hat

I’ve got dirty hands

And I’ve got a dream to match

I’ve got a pocket full

Of government issue cures for poverty

No one’s leaving California

Pacific transit overload

All my friends live on the corner

And my guitar strums

I am The American

Under the streetlight, down by the water

Don’t worry baby, it’s nothing you ever knew

(If it) Makes you feel better, throw down a quarter

Don’t worry baby, it won’t stick to your shoes

No one’s leaving California

Pacific transit overload

Gold dust dreamers never warn ya

And my guitar strums

Yeah my guitar strums

I am The American
