“ All I can do is be me, whoever that is. ”
A lot of people don't like the road, but it's as natural to me as breathing.
Folk music is a bunch of fat people.
Having these colossal accolades and titles, they get in the way.
I can be jubilant one moment and pensive the next, and a cloud could go by and make that happen.
I don't think I'm tangible to myself.
I never saw myself as a folk singer.
I realize I don't do a very good job in keeping up to date, but I try to.
I'm mortified to be on the stage, but then again, it's the only place where I'm happy.
I'm not a playwright.
I'm not the kind of cat that's going to cut off an ear if I can't do something.
It's not easy to define poetry.
My range is limited.
My songs always sound a lot better in person than they do on the record.
Some formulas are too complex and I don't want anything to do with them.
The land created me. I'm wild and lonesome. Even as I travel the cities, I'm more at home in the vacant lots.
