Kyle Craft, "Before the Wall." "If the wall it goes up and the country comes down / And it's too tall to get in, too late to get out / And the beaches have barbed wire across every shore / Would you lay down your gun, then you don't need it no more?" Glam-rock songwriter Craft closed with this Dylanesque protest song when he opened for Drive-By Truckers at Union Transfer this week. Released as a single, not included on Craft's promising Dolls of Highland debut.
