This is one of my favorite George Strait songs, and my band has done it “straight” and a parody version about dead armadillos on the roadside called “Armadillos in Mourning”…(my bad is the Screamin’ Armadillos, so it fitting).
Your son’s crew did a good job.
I had a pickup like that once. It was better after I replaced the steering mechanism and the u-joints.
No offense taken…one of the reasons so many Texas songwriters and performers write about roads and driving is the fact that we judge a trip’s distance by hours, not minutes…I didn't mean any offense to Texans about the fine roads I have driven throughout the state. I meant to imply the sheer enormity of Texas makes one notice how many miles it takes to get through the state. I have always enjoyed rolling through Texas. It looks so very different than my native New England, and that always excites me when I travel.
