"B.C." "Brought It On Myself" "American Dream"
(#6) (#7) (#8)





It's bragging to cover up insecurity and emptiness and regret over a choice to live life on the road, but only as an anonymous person singing it in a song, careful to point out he does not brag about it in everyday practice.  So, it's a reflection-type of song about his past choices, and some fear and loathing about his future.  

This is a conceited song where the main character can easily hook up with chicks, and he barely escapes the trouble that type of lifestyle can bring, having the advantage of being a travelling musician and all, but he is constantly worried it's going to catch up with him, so it's bittersweet, and thus, he has the blues.

It's probably technically a 12-bar blues, although I don't know for sure, but it's slow, and it serves as a cautionary tale about promiscuity.
