A textbook country-folk song from former Mercury Rev keyboardist Adam Snyder. The song attempts to don the old Stetson and spurs with its lolling country beats and searing harmonica solo, but it fails to make an impression in the saloon.
The melody is easy-listening but lacks spirit. The guitar strums warmly but limply. And Snyder's gentle voice that sings lyrics such as, "My hair's gonna blow / My tears are gonna flow / My prayers are gonna grow / Like leaves of grass," lacks the conviction to stop them from sounding second-rate.
Taken from the album Across The Pond, the single is breezy and toe-tapping enough to be blasted out of a trucker's cabin on an American open road, but he'd probably only have it on as background music.
