被高中英語課的country music 給誤導了，那是在講folk song。問了幾個老美，他們都說：“兩者差別挺大”：
Folk 基本用傳統樂器，歌詞普遍是一些瑣事，一些情感，對社會的看法。通常老美認為是老歌。style 包含blues, blue grass等
Country Music 鄉村音樂： 可以用鄉村音樂的樂器，也可以用電子樂器，當今的都有電吉他和鼓。歌詞多是情情愛愛。style比較流行pop。
這張專輯最有驚喜的一首是cats in the cradle。 這首歌相信很多樂迷都沒聽過，裏面很少有推薦這首歌。歌詞很簡單，但是很有趣的講了一個“有其父必有其子”的輪迴的道理。
當時看《老友記》時 Chandler 說他和他老竇的關係就像 “cats in the cradle” 一樣。 立刻腦裏就浮現那個畫面了。最後一段“He grown up just like me” 唱得真是唏噓。
(Verse 1) My child arrived just the other day, He came to the world in the usual way. But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay, He learned to walk while I was away. And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew, He'd say "I'm gonna be like you, yeh, I know I'm gonna be like you".
(Chorus) And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon, Little Boy Blue and The Man In The Moon. "When ya comin' home Dad?" "I don't know when, we'll get together then, son, Ya know we'll have a good time then".
(Verse 2) Well my son turned 10 just the other day, He said "Thanks for the ball Dad, come let's play. Can ya teach me to throw?" I said "Not today, I got a lot to do." He said "That's ok". And then, he walked away but his smile never dimmed, He said "I'm gonna be like him, yeh, Ya know I'm gonna be like him".
(Verse 3) Well he came from college just the other day, So much like a man I just had to say "Son I'm proud of you, can ya sit for a while?" He shook his head, and he said with a smile "What I'd really like Dad, is to borrow the car keys. See ya later, can I have them please?"
(Chorus) And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon, Little Boy Blue and The Man In The Moon. "When ya comin' home son?" "I don't know when, we'll get together then, Dad, Ya know we'll have a good time then".
(Verse 4) Well I've long since retired, my son's moved away, I called him up just the other day. I said "I'd like to see you, if you don't mind." He said "I'd love to Dad, if I can find the time. You see my new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu, But it's sure nice talking to you Dad, It's been sure nice talking to you." And as he hung up the phone it occurred to me, He'd grown up just like, my boy, was just like me.
