The Front Porch Song

This song is my all time favorite.  It fits perfectly with the theme of the week.  This song was written quite a few years ago and shows the lifestyle of Robert Earl Keen and many baby boomers in Texas and other agricultural states.  He is a big part of the Austin music scene.  Austin, Texas represents a big part of the foodie movement, but the start of this music scene had the roots in ranching as told in this song.  Every time I really listen to this song, not just hear it, it really makes me feel good and appreciate the great song writing ability of Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett.

 I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
