From the recording Hello Mississippi, Hello Bob

Lyrics

Late Appalachian Diaspora

It is true
as they say
everybody moves away
performative and discursive
and how
early america
late appalachian diaspora
tell me now

It is true
I’m displaced
dispersed in space
the desedimentation
of the nation
early america
late appalachian diaspora
tell me now

The truth
as revealed
a grouped textual field
fundamental questioning
roots of identity
early america
late appalachian diaspora
tell me now

It is true
as they say
everybody moves away
