“Winter Desires”


Singer tells of the desires of loggers after the winter camp is broken up. They want good food (and lambast the camp cook), liquor, and new clothes. When they've run out of cash and the parties are over, they'll head back to the woods


From Beck: "Though all of the songs about the logger's desires are not accepted by the mails, this one...is respectable." - PJS
