Songs of the Decade : Joe Henry "Our Song" (2007)

"I saw Willie Mays at a Scottsdale Home Depot," opens "Our Song," one of the best tracks off of Joe Henry's Civilians, a stunning collection of songs that cover love, America in the era of Bush and traditions lost. Whether you're one of baseball's all-time greats or an everyday man, we can all look for what's been stripped away or what we once believed in, yet can no longer find. "This was our country, this frightful and this angry land, but it's my right, if the worst of it might still somehow make me a better man." Despite faith lost in what we can't control, and perhaps even what we can control, Henry reminds us of our blessings, our character and that, in the end, it's our road.
