Jyrki Katainen toivottaa Suomeen tervetulleeksi 1,8 miljoonaa maahanmuuttajaa - äänestätkö tätä miestä?


This is a song that has influenced me so very much from the eighties.



Duration: 05:34 Recorded: July 1980
Location: Meinerzhagen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany

I come from down in the valley, where mister when you're young
They bring you up to do, like your daddy done
Me and Mary we met in high school, when she was just seventeen
We'd drive out of this valley down to where the fields were green

We'd go down to the river
And into the river we'd dive
Oo Oh down to the river we'd ride

Then I got Mary pregnant and man that was all she wrote
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
We went down to the courthouse and the judge put it all to rest
No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle
No flowers no wedding dress
We went down to the river
And into the river we'd dive
Oh ooh down to the river we did ride

I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
But lately there ain't been no work on account of the economy
Now all them things that seemed so important
Well mister they vanished right into the air
Now I just act like I don't remember, Mary acts like she don't care
But I remember us riding in my brother's car
Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
Now them memories come back to haunt me, they haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie, if it don't come true
Or is it something worse that sends me
Down to the river though I know the river is dry
Oo oh Down to the river tonight - aye aye aye
Oh Down to the river, my baby and I
Oh down to the river we ride
Oo oo oo ooh
Oo oo oo oo ooh
Oo oo oo ooh
Oo oo oo ooh
Oo oo oo oo ooh
Oo oo oo ooh
oo ooh

Hmm... one could say I'm interested in computers, because I (have to) spend so much time with them. And the advent of WWW didn't exactly diminish the required time quota. And then there's of course Funet...
