Heartworn Highways is a documentary film by James Szalapski whose vision captured some of the founders of the Outlaw Country movement in Texas and Tennessee in the last weeks of 1975 and the first weeks of 1976. The film was not released theatrically until 1981.

The documentary covers singer-songwriters whose songs are more traditional to early folk and country music instead of following in the tradition of the previous generation. Some of film’s featured performers are Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, David Allan Coe, Rodney Crowell, Gamble Rogers, Steve Young, and The Charlie Daniels Band. The movie features the first known recordings of Grammy award winners Steve Earle and Rodney Crowell who were quite young at the time and appear to be students of mentor Guy Clark. Steve Earle was also a big fan of Van Zandt at the time.

The song I chose from this album, which has 26 songs from the documentary, is Bluebird Wine, written and performed by Rodney Crowell.

Baby says she’d really love a party
Get some friends together feelin’ fine yeah
Any friend of mine is worth his habit
A belly full of baby’s Bluebird wine

Yes it’s all right now
I’ve just hit my stride
Right off the bat
I’m drunk on Bluebird, wine

And it’s all right now
I’ve just hit my stride
Right off the bat
I’m drunk on Bluebird wine

Baby showed me a diff’rent way of thinkin’
Like how to spend my evenings here at home
List’ning to the music on the radio
Drinking all the Bluebird we can hold

Yes it’s all right now
I’ve just hit my stride
Right off the bat
I’m drunk on Bluebird, wine

And it’s all right now
I’ve just hit my stride
Right off the bat
I’m drunk on Bluebird wine

Songwriters: RODNEY J CROWELL
