Much more a mock Country song than serious. Think Ween, more than Wilco. Garth has noth'n ter wurree bout.


Co-written (the chord progression) with my old pal Mike Coykendall from the Old Joe Clarks many years ago

Hit it, Charlie!

Fun tune from start to finish. The lyrics paint a picture, the solo is purified Country Fried and the ending caught me off guard in a good way.

Cool! Is Charlie your imaginary guitarist? He's mine, too - I referenced him in "Rabbitbirds" (http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=28310). Also, I sang along to your song... does that make me "sleazy?"

Wow! Really liked this tune, Matt. The lyrics are fun throughout, love the guitar solo and your vocals were really showcased in this one. Reminded me a little of the Bottle Rockets if have heard any of their stuff. Side note -- as a certified Whiskey drinker, I take exception to the "cheap whiskey" line -- this one goes down fine with the top shelf stuff!

Thanks,
Paul

Well, I have a lot of coutry songs that I've written but I never liked any of them. I can't play a country lick on the guitar to save my life.

This was a fresh take on the genre. I enjoyed it. The reversing at the end kinda took me by surprise. And, I say this about all looped drums - they kinda take from a song. These fit well enough just lacked oomph.

I'm a bit late to comment on this song....very cool.

I love the main line, and title name, nice idea. However, although I think this song is fantastic, I think people are being a little unreasonable giving all straight fives...whatever happened to the movement for lower ratings?

Anyway, I also loved the little random synthetic thing at the end.

You really nailed this one as a country spoof, Matt.
and I really like that guitar solo..,

The funny part is that this guy is by no means heartbroken but actually
relieved that she up and left him... did she take his motorcycle too?

Hi - I know this has been out a long time, but since I am new here, am surfing the site, esp for country and folk. I got a real kick out of this (haha - not by a mule in the head, fortunately). I like hearing someone use a genre to poke fun at the genre itself -such as the immortal Steve Goodman song, enhanced by DA Coe, You Never Even Called Me By My Name. Thanks -I think is is important to have fun and a sense of humor about music! (I don't put any ratings for perf and prod because I have lousy sound and nothing ever sounds its best).
