There's Something About Mary: Mary

The V-Roys: Mary


Regular readers of my site know that I am a vocal supporter of Knoxville singer/songwriter Scott Miller. That's why I got extra excited when I saw this week's theme and realized that it would allow me to post what is possibly my favorite Scott Miller song.

This song comes from Scott's early days with legendary (around here anyway) Knoxville outfit, The V-Roys. Even though it comes from early in his career, it showcases some of my favorite elements of his songwriting. It's the nifty turns of a phrase and the weight of the emotion conveyed by the elderly protagonist looking back on the mistakes of his life that give this song its charm.
