The New American Way?

In this song, “country” is used as a geo-political entity, which in this case is my home country, the US. My song is a reflection upon something I find presently in short supply here; namely, civil discourse.


  1. Very pertinent Tom. Its not just the in the USA though. People take stands now on social media that they would never take if they were looking someone in the eye over a coffee or a beer. A good “state of our nation” song. Like the shouting at the end!

  2. You’ve summed up the sad state
    of current discourse in so many countries, Tom. Polarised opinions, an unwillingness to listen thoughtfully &
    reply respectfully. A song for our times with a memorable refrain & great harmonica!
