Interpretations:Charleston

From This Might Be A Wiki

Farm policy[edit | edit source]

Funny stuff in there about agribusiness and US Farm policy. Perhaps on the strength of this song Willie Nelson will invite the Johns to Farm Aid this year? --Nehushtan 11:51, 10 Apr 2006 (CDT)

Interpretation 2[edit | edit source]

Also, seems like the song writer is a bit reluctant about using such a literal idea (equating the name with an imaginary farm where music is grown). "You get the idea" --repugnant 18:03, June 16, 2006

Well, Yeah. There's that. But keep in mind that the Music Farm is a old (I mean 1880's or so) railway warehouse that's been converted to a concert hall of sorts. there's no seats, but it has a large bar, and everything has that homemade, but well made feel to it. It's classic downtown Charleston, where you can almost guess what the buildng was by the old and dilapidated building fitments. Charleston converted it's old railway station into the visitor's center, and you could pitch a stone and hit the Music Farm from there. I feel that the somewhat agricultural feel of the warehouse inspired the song lyrics. You get the idea. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.182.98.237 (talk) 22:24, January 14, 2008
