Like his mentor and friend, the late great Townes van Zandt, Guy Clark writes intelligent, articulate songs that retain a kind of elegant purity, never caught up in their own cleverness or tripped up by wordiness. Clark is best known as a writer, and his songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Rodney Crowell, George Strait, Vince Gill and many others over the years, but he's also an excellent, and sadly unheralded, recording artist in his own right, with a consistently quality discography that stretches back to his superb 1975 debut, "Old No. 1." This dark, bluesy song is the opening track from his 12th album, "Workbench Songs," out soon from Dualtone Records.
