The first song I heard to day was Steve Earle’s “Copperhead Road”.
You hardly ever saw Grandaddy down here
He only come to town about twice a year
He’d buy a hundred pounds of yeast and some copper line
Everybody knew that he made moonshine
The first song today was “Someday” by Steve Earle.
I got me a 67 Chevy, she’s low and sleek and black
Someday I’ll put her on that interstate and never look back
Normally in the mornings Pandora/Spotify spit out a song that I generally like or in the very least have heard of. This morning it gave me one that I can’t recall hearing before. A Steve Earle/Lucinda Williams duet that I immediately loved. It’s called “You’re Still Standin’ There”. Youtube
And the world keep turning round and round
It leaves me hanging in the air
My heart keeps turning upside down
You’re still standin’ there
The first song today was Steve Earle’s take on “Pancho and Lefty”. I love the acoustic guitar with a hint of a long whining harmonica.
And I ask you, friend, what’s a fella to do
‘Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
“The Galway Girl” Steve Earle
“The Galway GIrl” Steve Earle
New Jersey Turnpike
cruising on a wet night
‘Neath the refinery’s glow
out where the great black rivers flow
“State Trooper” Bruce Springsteen via Steve Earle
The first lines of this song is another song that can take me back to a moment of driving on the New Jersey Turnpike late at night headed to a hotel for a good night’s sleep.
