The first song I heard to day was Steve Earle’s “Copperhead Road”. 

Favorite Line:

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.

Favorite Line:

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

Favorite Line:

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

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.
