This is my favourite Townes Van Zandt song.
You can tell from the title that it’s not exactly upbeat.
‘Townes is the best songwriter in the whole world and I’ll stand on Bob Dylan’s coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that.’
‘I’ve met Bob Dylan and his bodyguards, and I don’t think Steve could get anywhere near his coffee table.’
-Townes Van Zandt
