Amarillo Highway

"Amarillo by Morning" by Gorrck

Over the last six months a bunch of my friends, as well as me, have made career changes which involved relocating long distances. Of course we all sent photos to each other - like me and my U-Haul in a snow squall in Rochester, NY. I particularly like this one sent to me by my buddy Gorrck as he and his wife and dog were driving from Scottsdale, AZ, to Chicago, IL. Reminded me of this song....

And here's a rockin' bad-ass cover:

The track that introduced me to the genius that is Terry Allen - great fun!
