So give it up Jason.   Find the nearest Indian and write them a check.  Their ancestors would laugh at you!

Agree with you, west.  You have to be deaf not to hear the guilt in the song.  And you have to be blind not to see that it's both warranted and past due.  I'm a white man, I don't have to give everything away and go hang myself, but being conscious of my privilege and the lack of the same privilege for others is the first step in figuring out how to resolve these injustices.  But don't listen to me.  Listen to the song.

I am really impressed with Isbell as a songwriter. This song is intended to be jarring, and Isbell sets you up in the first stanza:

I'm a white man living in a white man's world
Under our roof is a baby girl
I thought this world could be hers one day
But her momma knew better

The first two lines make it sound like it'll be a 1-2, 3-4 rhyming scheme by making "world" and "girl" work. (It's the "RL" sound that makes the two words sound similar.)

Then he throws structure out the window. Just when you're thinking Line 4 is going to end with something that rhymes with "one day" he hits you with a bitten off, terse "But her momma knew better." It gets your attention like a two-by-four to your skull.

There seems to be a lot of folks that want to beat themselves up for what a specific political party has done, and in a lot of ways still does. The key to your freedom is HONESTLY identifying who that is and rejecting them.
