Living in your major metropolitan areas such as Chicago and all for my livelong except for 2 really fun married with a darling baby daughter years in Cumberland, Md., a beautiful little town (where you can have more fun if you're young and have no money than anyplace else I've ever lived) I can't say for sure, but I do THINK this song's account of small town life is not only brilliant but also correct sir! That is, I think it's correct not from personal experience but because when I can, I always go to my family reunion in Brunswick, Mo., my momma's home town. Really good people there as they say and/but you better believe they know everybody else's share of ups and downs.
Now about this song here, has it got a great bass line running along at the appropriate times on the 6 string? Why yes, i think it does. But can the guy play harmonica just right? Wellll ... i believe he can. OK, but does it include a great Steve Earle kinda "hup!" just when you need it? Hell yes it does! All right then, fine, but here's the deal: Does the very last line of the song put a precise and this time I mean precise, silver dagger in your heart EVERY single time?
