Dylan, troubadour verite that he is, started a tradition last year of doing a song send up for Cinco de Mayo. Some months ago we chatted about trying a borderland story song written by troubadour tambien Tom Russell, covered by Joe Ely and others.

Once we got on our horses to ride this one in to the corral, it was great to again hang with Dylan as a friend and to join his troubadour journey in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo.

So here is our version of the storied rise and fall of Gallo Del Cielo. The legend of the dreams of Carlos Saragoza and his fighting rooster with the crazy eye.

It's a long listen, but we break out the Pinatas at the end! Not a single electric guitar was harmed in the making of this story.

Dylan: Vocals, acoustic rhythm guitars, acoustic lead guitar, percussion, essence of troubadour.

BossHook: Vocals, acoustic rhythm guitars, acoustic lead guitar, percussion, key accordion, faders and Dylan fan.

Los huesos de Pancho Villa: A few drum loops.

© Tom Russell

What a wonderful tune. This is reminiscent of some of the best country tunes in recent times... very cool. Classic Lovett, and Nelson, Parton and Harris. Just great songwriting and singing.

Great job gentlemen.

Love the consistency - tells a brilliant story with a melody so evocative and almost familiar, that it lets us take a journey into this wondrous, legendary world. There is a lot of folklore behind this song, be it fictional, legendary or both. Thanks for the ride!

I rarely hear such heartfelt honesty in song craft here on iComp. What began with doing send-ups results in an epic musical tale, masterfully performed, perfectly produced. When I hear things like this I wish the icomp audience was much, much, much larger, because this deserves to be heard. Great job guys. One for the books, as they say.

What a production ! I agree with Tribix, totally epic and heartfelt music.

The vocals are outstanding and full of emotions. The guitars are perfect.

I enjoyed another song you did together ('Jenny') but this one is more than excellent. And it sure deserves a large audience...
