I got a big chain around my neck...

Oh yes, my brothers and sisters, if you cain't have Roseanne and her locomotion, who better than Lucinda Williams? This'll do just fine:

Paschal, I'm kind of frustrated because I can't get the video to work. In fact none of your videos will play for me this morning. When I click on the video it starts, doesn't make any sound, stops playing but downloads the rest of the file and still won't play. I tried rebooting to see if that helped. It didn't. Could you please provide a link to the video on YouTube so that I can try to view it there?

Thanks & Sorry,

Ms Lee: I am sorry for the electronic inconveniences! I've had a few this morning meself, but they seem to be smoothing out. Rather than run down the links on YouTube, here's the quick skinny: Lucinda Williams with Can't Let Go; Amy Macdonald with Mr. Rock and Roll (check out all of hers on the Tube); Albert Lee and My Baby Thinks He's a Train; Roseanne Cash singing Seventh Avenue (the YouTube is Austin 3 or 4, I think); and The Sundays with Wild Horses.

Okay, I'm back and this time I could hear it. Man that is one good tune. I like the driving rhythm and the way the lyrics seem to fit the simple melody. It really feels like a train headed down the track for somewhere.

Thanks for this!

jsd: Lucinda's daddy is a poet up in Arkansas (University of). She's as crazed as they come and an awesome singer.

Lee: Glad you wuz able to catch the vibe. Kick this number into Warp speed and you've got young Roseanne doin' My Baby Thinks He's a Train.

I'm broke down, like a train wreck..."

A big favorite of Walden's: he used to sing to it, when he was a mere mere.

I LOVE Lucinda! Tire WHE-ULS on a gravel road.

I will play this one later. When I'm in the right place. Literally.

San: Sister Lucinda definitely got it goin' on. I recently found out that her first album was recorded in 1978 at Malaco Studios in Jackson, Mississippi, maybe when her daddy wuz at Millsaps.
