merle haggard said this was a perfect country song & the best that had been written in the last 10years. high words of praise from one of the great songwriters of all time. blaze foley was a texas phenomenon who wrote a pocket full of fine songs & then found a sad & stupid way to die way too soon. like his mentor, townes van zandt, he left us his songs to be remembered by & they'll do just fine.
