Midnight struck and it turned into Robert Earl Keen with back to back singles with a live version of “On and On”.

Favorite Line:

In the summer of the loon, on a hidden harbor shore
By the shimmering moon they never wanted nothin’ more
And there ain’t another sound they been waitin’ for so long
She takes his hand and pulls him down and their love lives on and on

The music opened on this Thursday with a live version of Robert Earl Keen’s “Shades of Gray”

Favorite Line:

We made Oklahoma a little after 3
Randy, his brother Bob and my old GMC
We had some moonshine whisky
And some of Bob’s homegrown
We were so messed up we didn’t know
If we were drunk or stoned

The first song this morning was Robert Earl Keen’s “Dreadful Selfish Crime”.

Favorite Line:

One thing I have found there are just two ways to go
It all comes down to livin’ fast or dyin’ slow

The first song this Sunday was “Corpus Christi Bay” by Robert Earl Keen.

Favorite Line:

I worked the rigs from three to midnight
On the corpus Christi Bay
I’d get off and drink till daylight
Sleep the morning away

The first song for Sunday morning is “On and On” By Robert Earl Keen.

Favorite Line:

In the summer of the loon, on a hidden harbor shore
By the shimmering moon they never wanted nothin’ more
And there ain’t another sound they been waitin’ for so long
She takes his hand and pulls him down and their love lives on and on

The first song this morning was a live version of Robert Earl Keen’s “Feeling Good Again”. 

It reminds me of my hometown, even though there wasn’t really a place to go for live music.

Favorite line:

I wanted you to see ‘em all
I wished that you were there
I looked across the room
And saw you standin’ on the stair
And when I caught your eye
I saw you break into a grin
It feels so good feelin’ good again

Pandora took me back to my hometown with Robert Earl Keen’s “Feelin’ Good Again”. While I don’t know Dan & Margarita, I can sub in some names and picture them swaying.  I can also picture a collection of drunk guys signing like they are the “Tabernacle choir”. I can easily picture that. The song just gives me the feeling of walking in to a couple of places back home.

His songs more times than not tell a story and they are easy to visualize. 

Favorite Line/verse:

“And I wanted you to see them all I wished that you were there
I looked across the room and saw you standing on the stair
And when I caught your eye I saw you break into a grin
It feels so good feelin good again”

Yeah I know her too.
