Drive-By Truckers - George Jones Talkin’ Cellphone Blues

I think what everyone love(d)(s) about this band is that they’re all grateful humans who happen to be good drinkin’* pals.

*Jason’s struggles with the liquor, aside.

Drive-By Truckers - Righteous Path

Six years ago (to the day) I saw this band live for the first time. It changed my life. This band has taught me so much about myself. Cheers to everyone who’s ever listened to a DBT song with me, listened to me blab about them, been to their show with me, anyone who loves them irrationally like I do, to the one who drove 7000kms with me, and to anyone else that wants in on this cheers. Happy Canada Day/DBT Day.

Church blew up in Birmingham
Four little black girls killed for no goddamn good reason
All this hate and violence can’t come to no good end
A stain on the good name.
A whole lot of good people dragged through the blood and glass
Blood stains on their good names and all of us take the blame

Meanwhile in North Alabama, Wilson Pickett comes to town
To record that sweet soul music, to get that Muscle Shoals sound

Meanwhile in North Alabama, Aretha Franklin comes to town
To record that sweet soul music, to get that Muscle Shoals sound

And out in California, a rock star from Canada writes a couple of great songs about the
Bad shit that went down
“Southern Man” and “Alabama” certainly told some truth
But there were a lot of good folks down here and Neil Young wasn’t around

Meanwhile in North Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd came to town
To record with Jimmy Johnson at Muscle Shoals Sound
And they met some real fine people, not racist pieces of shit
And they wrote a song about it and that song became a hit

Ronnie and Neil Ronnie and Neil
Rock stars today ain’t half as real
Speaking their minds on how they feel
Let them guitars blast for Ronnie and Neil

Now Ronnie and Neil became good friends their feud was just in song
Skynyrd was a bunch of Neil Young fans and Neil he loved that song
So He wrote “Powderfinger” for Skynyrd to record
But Ronnie ended up singing “Sweet Home Alabama” to the lord

And Neil helped carry Ronnie in his casket to the ground
And to my way of thinking, us southern men still need both of them around

Ronnie and Neil Ronnie and Neil Rock stars today ain’t half as real
Speaking their minds on how they feel
Let them guitars blast for Ronnie and Neil

— Drive-By Truckers, Ronnie and Neil
