Listen:

"I Ain't Got No Home In This World Anymore."

These days the title of this song sounds like something Ron Artest Metta World Peace would say in a press conference after being ejected from a game for elbowing someone in the face – a day after taking his vows as a Buddhist monk.

But when Woody Guthrie sang it, he meant it.

Then when Dylan sang it, he meant it.

Then when Lennon sang it, he meant it.

Now when Jack White sings it, he means it – Nothing could be closer to the essence of genius for a real songwriter. In this day and age, nothing could better help explain the antics of the Metta World Peaces of today.
