It Does Worry Me

Robert Altman’s Nashville is brilliantly reviewed in the article below. The end of the film is intense. Something tragic happens. Then, this song is performed. Watching the end scene, I can’t help but think of all the Americans that choose not to care about what’s happening to our country.

Keith Carradine’s mid-70’s lyrics are more relevant than ever, considering the recent media distractions.

They say this train don’t give out rides,
it don’t worry me
All the world is taking sides,
it don’t worry me
Because in my empire life is sweet,
just ask any bum you meet
Life may be a one-way street,
but it don’t worry me

Everybody sing,
‎It don’t worry me,
it don’t worry me,
you may say I ain’t free
it don’t worry me‎

It don’t worry me,
it don’t worry me,
you may say that I ain’t free
its not gonna worry me

The price of bread may worry some,
it don’t worry me
Tax relief may never come,
it don’t worry me
Economy’s depressed not me,
my spirit’s high as it can be
and you may say that I ain’t free,
it don’t worry me

It don’t worry me,
it don’t worry me,
you may say I ain’t free
but it don’t worry me

It don’t worry me none,
it don’t worry me,
you might say I ain’t free,
but it not gonna worry me…‎
