Transcript of Disgrace

Geography Matters... in Books Too! :) Aim: to show that 'geographic literacy' can help enhance our understanding of literary works Start spreading the news,
I'm leaving today.
I want to be a part of it -
New York, New York.

These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
And step around the heart of it
New York, New York.

I want to wake up in a city,
That doesn't sleep,
To find I'm king of the hill- ah-
Top of the heap.

My little town blues
Are melting away
I'm gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York.
If I can make it there,
I'd make it anywhere
It's up to you,
New York, New York.

New York, New York!

I want to wake up in a city,
That doesn't sleep,
To find I'm king of the hill,
Head of the list,
Cream of the crop
At top of the heap.

My little town blues
Are melting away
I'm gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York.
If I can make it there,
I'd make it anywhere
Come on, come through,
New York, New York.
Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees,
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze.

Country roads, take me home,
To the place where I belong,
West Virginia, mountain mama.
Take me home, country roads.

All my mem'ries gather 'round her,
Miner's lady, stranger to blue waters.
Dark and dusty painted on the sky,
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eye.

Country roads, take me home,
To the place where I belong,
West Virginia, mountain mama,
Take me home, country roads.

I hear her voice, in the mornin' hours she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday,
Yesterday.

Country roads, take me home,
To the place, I belong
West Virginia mountain mama,
Take me home, country roads

Country roads, take me home,
To the place I do belong
West Virginia, mountain mama,
Take me home, country roads
Why DISGRACE? Why the INTEREST in Literature? p5 "... the one who comes to teach learns the keenest of lessons, while those who come to learn learn nothing." State of Geographic Literacy in Spore 5th Ave, Manhattan, New York City, New York State Geographical Imagination SEX (or women) p149 "... the choice is between the operating table and the floor" p1 "... goes straight through to the bedroom which is pleasant-smelling and softly lit and undresses." p2 "Given their uncompromising beginnings, they have been lucky, the two of them: he to have found her, she to have found him." p150 "Let me not forget this day... After the sweet young flesh of Melanie Issacs, this is what I have come to." CBD/Downtown
