2011 - Ry Cooder - "Wall Street Part of Town" (special song to support the OWS movement)
Nov. 16 12:05, Just out: from the great Ry Cooder with OWS song, with refrain, Still Looking for "The Wall Street Part of Town". Standing in the rain and breaking off the chains. He'd already produced recently the classic "No Banker Left Behind". Sample: "Divide and rule / hat's always been their plan / But this time we've got friends. ..."
2012 - Ry Cooder - "Going To Tampa" (Two versions with a different mandolin intro)
The inspiration for one of the most racially inflammatory ads in modern Presidential politics, Horton is also now the subject of an ironic new song by Ry Cooder, the composer, singer, and guitarist rumored to have taught Keith Richards how to really get his blues on. Cooder, who lives in California, happens to have a cache of new songs about politics, most of which have yet to be released. They include a bluesy bay from Romney’s dog, complete with hound accompaniment, and a haunting mandolin riff devoted to the Koch Brothers. Cooder turns out to be a New Yorker reader, and after seeing this week’s story in the magazine about Larry McCarthy, the creator of the original 1988 Willie Horton ad, who is now making attack ads for the pro-Romney Super PAC, Cooder sent me his Horton number. It’s called, “Going to Tampa,” in honor of the coming Republican National Convention. So here, in Cooder’s words, is the “glorious world première.” As he told me, “You heard it here, you heard it first”: “Going to Tampa”.

Quicksand (iTunes Exclusive){Album Lyrics}

Quicksand Lyrics

I left my home in Tamaulipas
In Sonoyta i came across
There was but 6 of us when we started
walking behind the coyote boss

(Man's name was Javier, he didn't look right to me. Said 'keep on walking get your coke jug')

An old man said please let me go along with you
Yes i'm old but i'm mighty tough
I know the road and maybe i can help you
I got good shoes i won't hold you up

1st night we stopped and rested
Next morning our guide was gone
The Sinaloa boy was for retreating
The old man said, the mountain's on the right we can't go wrong

But somewhere up on Tenahas Altas, he stumbled and then he fell
He begged and he pleaded but we had to leave him lyin on Camino Diablo trail

Quicksand i think we lost direction
Quicksand now we're losin ground
Quicksand nobody round to help us
I think we're sinking down

Thought we was getting close to Yuma
I heard it's an unfriendly town
We just need a cool drink of water
Even Yuma can't turn a poor boy down
Then a Dodge Ram truck drove right down on us
Sayin I'm your vigilante man and i'm here to say your ass just got deported
I'm taking you out just as fast as i can
He said you might be an old typhoid carrier
Might be a new drug cartel
Suppose you been sent by al kayeda
Sure would like to get our hands on Al

Well mister it's 120 degrees back out there
It's just me and the boy, the rest are gone
I think you'd take more pity on rescue pit bull dogs
Call us Charles and Bronson from now on
