Lyrics

Living on the road my friend,
Is gonna keep you free and clean
Now you wear your skin like iron,
Your breath as hard as kerosene.

Townes is talkin about himself in this one.
Back in the late sixties a friend of mine who shared my changes told me he heard about a singer we could catch at The Sand Mountain Coffee House on Montrose in Houston. On a Sunday evening in a very intimate setting I heard Townes Van Zandt for the first time. I've loved him ever since. God rest his troubled soul.

One of the great songs of modern folk music! So much is left unsaid in this song and so much is a mystery. O, why couldn't Townes have taken better care of himself and lived longer!

It's "a few grey Federales," not "great." They've grown old like Lefty and are telling stories ... .
I believe it's actually Poncho and Lefty. Classic track. This and Tecumseh Valley are just brilliant.
god bless this cowboy junky angel
