       I heard this song played at a gathering Saturday.  This version is recent. I think he first did it over twenty years ago. I like his voice better now.

Too many guitars... But I keep thinking one more may just do it.

I liked Steve Earle until I saw him live a couple of times. Still like his music but I can't really listen to him anymore.

That is true of sooooooo many artists.  Seems like artists of all stripes want to be socially relevant, but they really do not have the educational chops to be so.  They are the leading sheep, but sheep nonetheless.

It wasn't that so much as his personality. If I couldn't overlook the politics of most musicians, I wouldn't have much of a record collection. The problem with Earle, however, is that he's a dick.

One bit of trivia, in a live venue in Marfa,Tx he said this song was the first one he wrote sober.

Well, drunk or sober, he writes good songs. I'll give him that. The two times I saw him he was apparently sober. He must be a real pleasure when he's drinking. Being obnoxious to your audience is not the best way to win them over, however.
