Song of the Day: 09/07/09

I really dig this song.  I’m not a huge fan of all of Josh Ritter’s stuff, although I’m always able to realize that the dude is supremely talented.  He has a unique folksy sound to him.   He embodies that folk rock vibe one-hundred percent.  You can hear Bob Dylan influences, but with a voice that doesn’t suck.  Sometimes he’s country-ish, sometimes he’s more mainstream, and sometimes he’s just straight up folk.  It seems as though his music could have been composed and played in many different eras and epochs of time.  And that fascinates me.  Timeless sound.

This particular song is just awesome–and was featured on House MD.

And I think there is some  interesting imagery here and we all know I’m a sucker for that.

These chords are old but we shake hands
Cause I believe that they’re the good guys
We can use all the help we can
So many minor chords outside
I fell in love with your sound
Oh I love to sing along with you
We got tunes we kicked around
We got a bucket that the tunes go through

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I’m a good man for ya
I’m a good man

Last night there was a horse in the road
I was twisting in the hairpin
My hands held on my mind let go
And back to you my heart went skipping
I found the inside of the road
Thought about the first time that I met you
All those glances that we stole
Sometimes if you want them then you’ve got to

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I’m a good man for ya
I’m a good man

They shot a Western south of here
They had him cornered in a canyon
And even his horse had disappeared
They said it got run down by a bad bad man
You’re not a good shot but I’m worse
And there’s so much where we ain’t been yet
So swing up on this little horse
The only thing we’ll hit is sunset

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I’m a good man for ya
I’m a good man
