Townes Van Zandt - lucky enough to see him twice. The last time was in a pub in Doncaster (UK) playing to about 50 of us on a wet winters night. Superb. He was mightily chuffed when my chums informed him they has started up a pub/micro brewery and named it (after him) Townes Brewery. Produced some magnificent ales too.

Townes Van Zant was Steve Earle's musical hero. He named his son Justin Townes Earle, after TVZ. Sadly both Townes died early due to drug abuse.

Very sad indeed. Saw Steve Earle a couple of times also - way back with the Dukes. First time seeing Townes live in 1991 was at a large community centre in Romily (somewhere between Stockport and Manchester). Also on stage was Guy Clarke, John Stewart (both now gone) and Peter Rowan. What a line up. !

There's many a strange impulse out on the plains of West Texas,
There's many a young boy who feels things he don't comprehend.
Well a small town don't like it when somebody falls between sexes,
No, a small town don't like it when a cowboy has feelings for men.

Well I believe to my soul that inside every man there's a feminine,
And inside every lady there's a deep manly voice loud and clear.
Well, a cowboy may brag about things that he does with his women,
But the ones who brag loudest are the ones who are most likely queer.

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other
What did you think those saddles and boots was about?
There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels for his Brother,
Inside every cowboy there's a lady who'd love to slip out.

Ten men for each woman was the rule way back when on the prairie,
And somehow those cowboys must have kept themselves warm late at night.
Now the Cowboys is a famous for getting riled up about fairies,
But I 'll tell you the reason a big strong man gets so uptight,

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other
That's why they wear leather, and Levi's and belts buckled tight.
There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels for his
Brother,
There's many a cowboy who's more like a lady at night.

Well there's always somebody who says what the others just whisper 
And mostly that someone's the first one to get shot down dead,
When you talk to a cowboy don't treat him like he was a sister
Ya can't fuck with the lady that's a sleepin' in each cowboy's head.

Don't mess with the lady that's a sleepin' in each cowboy's head. 

But, Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other
Even though they take speed and drive pickups and shoot their big guns,
There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels for his
Brother,
There's many a cowboy who keeps quiet about things he's done.

Yeah, Willie covered it too, and being he is famous, he made the song more well known. But Ned wrote and this is a case where the original is best. Willie left out the 2nd verse and changed the end of the 3rd verse. That doesn't set well with me.

Last Monday I had my 2nd ever colonoscopy and everything was fine. 4 tiny benign polyps. It made me wonder though if the doctor shoving the scope up our bung holes can tell which ones have been the recipient of much anal sex? Maybe if it was recent, but I'd guess after a while the sphincter muscle returns to normal. Imagine if someone had recently had some deep fisting. The doc may be thinking, wow, this scope is sliding in awfully easy.

That's what I really like about you Lefty you always look more deeply into the  situation in a more philosophical way.  :biggrin:   :drinks:
