I consider this beautiful and haunting song the ballad of Americans suffering a foreclosure and their Realtors valiantly helping them against the banking machine.
The name of the song is “Living in the Promiseland”, written by David Lynn Jones and masterfully sung by Willie Nelson.
Art has different meanings to different people at different junctures in their life. Today I interpret this poem and song as a plea of the multitudes caught no fault of their own in the housing crisis.
Their “dreams are made of steel” and they’re looking for freedom from the debt bondage but need help.
The banks are leading Americans through a “winding road across the shifting sand”. The banks make the winding rules, but they change them like shifting sand dunes.
Enough of my analysis. Please listen to this impassioned song and moving lyrics and keep in mind the plight of suffering Americans, the role of the banks, and how we can help as Realtors.
- We can lend that helping hand.
- We can help mend their broken dreams.
- We can help trapped borrowers feel free again.
