Waist Deep In The Big Muddy

Apropos Bush’s speech this coming week:

“Well, I’m not going to point any moral;
I’ll leave that for yourself
Maybe you’re still walking, you’re still talking
You’d like to keep your health.
But every time I read the papers
That old feeling comes on;
We’re — waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.”

Props to Pete Seeger

  1. I just wanted to thank you for posting “Waist deep in the big Muddy.” I woke up this morning remembering it. I was a student’s rooming house landlady in the early seventies, where I heard this song among the students then. I couldn’t remember the words and am not sure the ones you published are all of them. I’m grateful for this, though, because it’s like “How much is that doggie in the window” that gets in one’s head and won’t leave for days on end. 🙂 My sentiments are with yours. The war where I was a Western Union operator in my town, was WWII. I graduated high school with a lot of the kids who died.

    This is just a personal thank you for giving me Seeger’s words again.
