Jack White played an acoustic gig a couple of days ago (April 26) at the Fargo Theatre in Fargo, North Dakota. The last of a short acoustic tour where he played the five US states he had yet to perform in: Alaska, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota and North Dakota. The shows were quite special performances as such but also special as Jack White announced that he takes a break now from live performances for a long period of time.
So let’s enjoy this (provisionally) ‘final’ concert in full

Just One Drink
Temporary Ground
Hotel Yorba
Alone In My Home

Bio / Discography

BackTime

Lyrics:
In the city there’s a thousand things I want to say to you
But whenever I approach you, you make me look a fool
I wanna say, I wanna tell you
About the young ideas
But you turn them into fears
In the city there’s a thousand faces all shining bright
And those golden faces are under 25
They wanna say, they gonna tell ya
About the young idea
You better listen now you’ve said your bit-a

And I know what you’re thinking
You still think I am crap
But you’d better listen man
Because the kids know where it’s at

In the city there’s a thousand men in uniforms
And I’ve heard they now have the right to kill a man
We wanna say, we gonna tell ya
About the young idea
And if it don’t work, at least we still tried

In the city, in the city
In the city there’s a thousand things I want to say to you
