Last week’s song was about a guy moments away from the ultimate penalty. This week’s song is about a man with some interesting multi-jurisdictional issues whose central crime is “borrowing” a car. But he also awaits trial in California, it appears. No appeal here, necessarily, but perhaps it might be good to work out some concurrent time in Bakersfield and maybe a sentence modification or parole packet in Tennessee.
The real crime is that not enough people appreciate John Hiatt as a songwriter and as a singer.
Enjoy the weekend.
