‘YOU KNOW HOW IT IS’
My day jobs since around 1980 didn’t provide much material for credible country lyrics, but at least I have this old number to fall back on. It’s drawn from my 1970s experiences as a sensitive young artiste sacrificing my soul as a “materials handler” (stockboy) at the South Portland, Maine, branch of the Jordan Marsh department stores (now Macy’s). Well, Jordan Marsh is gone, and I am still here. Even the title makes a virtue out of banality. Recorded at home in summer 2020.
