joey, joey … just because

one of my favorite albums in the whole wide universe is bob dylan’s desire. it is an album of song stories. long ass perfect song stories. emmylou harris’s vocals are all over it and the band is huge. the eleven minute epic titled “joey” ‘celebrates the life of gangster ‘crazy joe gallo‘. you click and read about him – or you can listen to the epic tale as wailed by bobby and emmylou. there are some great lines in that song. i’ve been singing one all day – comes from the first verse – goes like this:

Always on the outside whatever side there was
When they asked him why it had to be that way “Well” he answered “just because”.

sometimes life is like that. the answer is just because.
