How is the title of "Dust Bowl Dance" relevant to the song?
I was introduced to the song "Dust Bowl Dance" by Mumford and Sons through this video, about the character Percy from Campaign 1 of the D&D show Critical Role (spoilers in video). The song fits so well it seems almost written about him.
Upon listening to the song, though, I'm not sure what the title "Dust Bowl Dance" has to do with the song. The song appears to be about revenge; what does the title have to do with that?
How is the title relevant to the song?
Not really sure, but the site Song facts says:
The song title alludes to a severe drought that affected the South Western Great Plains region of the United States during the 1930s. The drought brought the arid region to its knees and turned it into a vast dust bowl. Thousands of farm families were forced to flee west and scratch a living anyway they could. Grapes of Wrath focuses on the Joads, a poor family of sharecroppers trapped in the Dust Bowl who set out for California seeking jobs, land and a future.
