Late Night OTB – Jeff Tweedy

We’ve made it home after a twelve hour road trip. Regular posting will resume tomorrow.

In the meantime, here’s a solo effort from Jeff Tweedy of Uncle Tupelo and Wilco fame, “The Thanks I Get” from “Sunken Treasure: Live in the Pacific Northwest.”

Is that the thanks I get for lovin you?
Is that the thanks I get for tellin you the truth?
You say you wanna know
Where I go when I go
You say you wanna communicate
But you dont hear a word I say
Is that the thanks I get for loving you?

Now I’m tired of the looks you give me when I get home late
And I’m getting tired how you forget the lovin things I say
I hold you tight
I treat you right
Now everytime I go out to play
Why you think im leaving
Is that the thanks I get for loving you?

Now faith and trust, the strongest part of us
That’s ok, but you must believe in our love
We can make it better
Put ourselves together and start it again

I hold you tight
You tuck me in at night
I dont ever wanna fight again
I think were both crazy

But thats the thanks we get for falling in love

We can make it better
We can make it better
Put ourselves together
Start it again
