Since I couldn’t find a youtube of what I listened to last night (Wendy Carlos’ Switched on Bach) I’ll select another song from yesterday’s CD by the Drive-by Truckers, “Brighter Than Creation’s Dark”, this one sung by Patterson Hood is called, “Goode’s Field Road.”  It’s a sad one, so be prepared.

Honey, take care of the children, make them do as they’re told
I got a meeting in the morning down at the end of the Goode’s Field Road
Nothing much for a man in my position
A man like me won’t last too long in prison
And all those friends down at Police Department
Will act like they never had anything to do with me
Started out down at the junk yard taking orders from a moron
And a man my size don’t like taking orders from anyone
Bought myself an old beat up wrecker, built an empire with my labor brains and sweat
But it’s hard to make an honest living and a man takes any help he gets
Nothing much for a man in my position, a second mortgage and three
College kids tuition and all them friends that I helped along the way
Will act like they never had anything to do with me
But you and me,
We had us some good times and I’ve always been a family man deep down.
Ain’t much a believer of hiring work from “out of state”
But they’ll be asking questions when I’m found.
They’ll be asking questions when I’m found
Honey, take care of the children, pay the house off when the salvage yard gets sold
And you don’t know nothing when the insurance man asks questions
Bout what went down at the Goode’s Field Road
Songwriters: Patterson Hood

  1. I really like what I’ve heard from them. Hans posted about them one day and I checked them out. I love the fact they have done some concept albums…which is great.
