I heard an artist do a solo guitar cover that I really enjoyed. I had never heard the song before, but I am almost certain that she said that it was not an original. I do not remember who the artist was.
-The only lyrics that I remember are something along the lines of "be nice to immigrants, cause they have a hard life." (although probably not this exact phrase as I have googled the hell out of it.)
-The format of the song was a list of advice, possibly a parent talking to a child? Or an old man talking to a younger person? (Note - It was not the "always wear sunscreen" song.)
-I am not sure what the original style of the song was, as I only heard her version of it. She was singing it very fast, and it was upeat.
-Another song she did in the set was "People like us" by the talking heads.
-It took place in Portland, Maine a few months ago at Mayo City Arts center. The event was billed as a "country night" and although the artist herself had a folksy style she seemed to be doing covers of non-country songs, so this song is probably not a traditional country song. Again, I do not remember who the artist was.
