I saw Lyle Lovett perform this song on Imus in the Morning. It’s amazing what you can see on a show hosted by a vegetarian that wears a cowboy hat and promotes grazing and rodeo but not eating beef.
This song seems as if it is about the life of a traveling clinician and even more so to show the story, in a artistic way, of Ray Hunt’s life as a horseman. It is my new favorite song.
