This was pretty much the second country-ish song I wrote, but the first serious one.  Puttin' Up A Pole Barn was a country parody, but this one I wrote because I discovered that the best market for non-performing songwriters to sell their songs to famous recording artists to record and release was this genre.  I took a stab at it, and I guess just wanted it to have the feel of a Clint Eastwood western somehow.  I'm not even sure it qualifies as country, but what the hey.

You've got to understand I grew up in a time and place where it was not cool to like country, and there was a stereotype it was for white trash, rednecks, etc.  Later in life, I realized some of the old artists like Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Lefty Frizzell, and Willie Nelson (to name a few) wrote some pretty cool songs.  I have no idea if this one is anything like those, but anyway, see if you can picture Randy Travis or George Strait singing it.  I think it might work well.
