son volt - methamphetamine (studio - 2007)

One my favorite, fairly unknown Son Volt gems ... the slide guitar is just KILLER ... lyrics & melody awesome ... check it!

I took a night shift, another nickel on the dime
Try to play it straight and make it different this time
Still waiting to meet the next ex-wife

It's either watching these gauges for Monsanto
Or a bar-back job for the casino
The Army won't want me after what this body's been through

Would you take me back North Carolina?
Would you take me back Arkansas?
Blissful days still there to remember
Methamphetamine was the final straw

I had a killer job in a backup band playin' guitar in Branson
Two shows a night brought the money to chase down sin
Now it's another weekend and I'm lonely at home
Late night TV, evangelist drone
I'm healthy now but I really don't know if I'll ever be free

Would you take me back North Carolina?
Would you take me back Arkansas?
Blissful days still there to remember
Methamphetamine was the final straw

1. The lap steel on that is pretty sick!



Great tune.

2. You're right, steel guitar is more accurate :)

I've never known pedal steel from lap steel unless I saw someone playing, but .. that's actually what I meant to say ...
