Song of the Day – “Red Headed Stepchild” – Golden Smog

Green, white, now red…

Americana supergroup Golden Smog gives some advice to the child living under the shadow of a vicious, “homespun” saying: “I’ll beat you like a red headed stepchild.” Isn’t it amazing what casual cruelty can be built into phrases said without thinking?

Don’t run away
Red headed stepchild
I can only promise
You won’t find your way back home
