You Took My Joy





This is the converstaion I'm having with my story world this week. How did I manage in under a month to get from this to this:


lyrics to Joy written by ?Lucinda Williams.
from CARWHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD (Mercury Records CD).

i don't want you anymore
cause you took my joy
i don't want you anymore
you took my joy

you took my joy
i want it back
you took my joy
i want it back

i'm gonna go to west memphis and look for my joy
go to west memphis and look for my joy
maybe in west memphis I'll find my joy
maybe in west memphis i'll find my joy

i'm gonna go to slidell and look for my joy
go to slidell and look for my joy
maybe in slidell I'll find my joy
maybe in slidell I'll find my joy
(first long instrumental break)

you got no right to take my joy
i want it back
you got no right to take my joy
i want it back

you took my joy
i want it back
you took my joy
i want it back

i'm gonna go to west memphis and look for my joy
go to west memphis and look for my joy
maybe in west memphis i'll find my joy
maybe in west memphis i'll find my joy

i'm gonna go to slidell and look for my joy
go to slidell and look for my joy
maybe in slidell i'll find my joy
maybe in slidell i'll find my joy

(second instrumental break)

i don't want you anymore
cause you took my joy
i don't want you anymore
you took my joy

you took my joy
i want it back
you took my joy
i want it back

you took my joy
i want it back
you took my
i want it back

(third & last instrumental break -- slows down)

i'm gonna go to west memphis
i'm gonna go to slidell.

Well, I don't know about the Memphis and Slidell part. That's hardly the first place I'd start looking. But going west to the coast? the sea shore? Or maybe someone elses story? How faithless is that?


But as much as I feel this way about it at the moment, I also know that there is only one to be blamed for taking my Joy and only one place to go looking for it. Afterall, the story world is really just a topological map of my psyche. Thus it is my self I'm having this conversation with. As always.


So I suppose the answer is to go deeper not run off looking in all the misdirections as every time before.
