Footwear: Flyin' Shoes



Townes Van Zandt: Flyin' Shoes

[purchase]

Townes Van Zandt wrote a lot of songs about leaving. Here is one of the best.


Days full of rain
Sky’s coming down again
I get so tired of these same old blues
Same old song
Baby it won't be long
Before I’ll be tying on my flying shoes
Flying shoes
‘Til I’ll be tying on my flying shoes...

I knew you'd have this one in your back pocket, Paul! ;o) Great tune...I love Townes Van Zandt.

WHY IS TOWNES SO DAMN GOOD?

I, too, held off on this track so you could have the better crack at it, Paul. Have you heard the Lyle Lovett cover? If not, let me know, and I'll add it in...

I haven't BH, but would love to!

Don't ever hold off for me to have a better crack at something. I am a man of few words.

It's not the number of words, it how you string 'em together. I happen to be verbose -- doesn't mean better.

Here's that Lyle cover:
