James McMurtry “We Can’t Make Here” Anymore



We Cant Make Here (Anymore) By: James McMurtry www.myspace.com www.jamesmcmurtry.com This song is so true to the times. Too many American jobs have been lost to offshore outsourcing, growth of illegal immigration and economic crisis. I wouldnt know where to begin to fix the crisis that we are in now, however I think that bringing our jobs back home would be the best stimulus package.
