Hillbilly Music

There are a
Lot more people
Riding my bus


When I was a
Life and Death
Young man in Indiana
I never dreamed
I would one day
Be living in a trailer
Listening to hillbilly music

That would be
So American
So Zero Boy
So what

The first time I heard Johnny Horton sing "The Battle of New Orleans" I knew I'd end up living in a trailer listening to Hillbilly music. I was five.

Jon--

And the first time you heard 'The Reverand Horton Heat'....

What'd that do for you all?

Haven't been commenting much on Beer's poetry of late.

But that doesn't mean I haven't been digging it.
