Some new Mcmurtry on youtube...

"Time sure flies when you're having fun
Wasnt it just yesterday you turned twenty-one
Does it still matter what you might have done
had you tried"

Then there is this, also from his debut album. check out the instrumental break at 2:10.

"And if his suitcase wasn't standing in the hall
He might not be coming home at all
And all the sides of him you never knew before
Would be drifting down the river to another back door

Still your mama called him daddy..."

I'd go see these guys like a shot. Just my sort of thing, songs with content, a story, a mystery to unfold, and music too!

I've been nuts about McMurtry's work for a long time now. My blog name comes from a line in one of his songs, off this same debut album.
I love his characters. Shit, I guess I'm one of them.
Hey Souby!
