The only really good part of this song is the slide guitar. But it's not enough to save it.

If this was one of his "missed" hits, I don't think I'd want to hear what one of his real hits was. Sorry.

I think that will pretty much do me for the rest of my life. Next.

That song made me want to put a shotgun in my mouth. Silly wabbit!
Someone else puts the shotgun in your mouth.

minus 1, and the guy looks like a total tool. Fascinating. Mind sharing your criteria? Race? Age? Proximity to taxidermy? Always looking to learn something!
Some uninteresting facts about this "total tool":
Trained as an architect, he received a B.F.A. from the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. His art has been supported by three NEA grants and a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship. His work Trees (the music, literary and third trees) is installed on the campus of the University of California San Diego as part of the Stuart Collection. His artwork has been featured at the L.A. Louver art gallery in Venice, California.Terry Allen is represented by Gallery Paule Anglim in San Francisco, CA. His works are represented in the collections of many international museums including the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Nelson/Atkins Museum in Kansas City, the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, l'Espace Lyonnais d'Art Contemporain, Musee Saint Pierre, Lyon, France, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.
Terry Allen recorded eight albums during the years 1979 to 2004 and collaborated with David Byrne on the soundtrack for Byrne's movie True Stories. Allen's music is far from traditional. A quote attributed to Allen states: "People tell me it's country music, and I ask, 'Which country?'" Allmusic.com calls his 1979 release, Lubbock (On Everything), "one of the finest country albums of all time" and a progenitor of the alt-country movement.

Interesting mixture of old-style C&W songwriting and sitar work. Not a big fav to me, but it did catch my ear.

Musically, this probably fell out the business end of a caboose.

3 for the song, 10 for the album cover.

Has very similar chord progressions as the song 1951 Vincent, which is a good thing!

Pretty much hated the song, but have to say that I'm loving the album cover and now feeling bad about my rating!
He looks like he woke up planning to go to a Lebowski-fest but decided to just stay in and get wasted instead.

I like the Little Feat version, this one is weird, in a 'sorta ok' way.

Superb English grammar, thar boy! Great stuff.

And WHO chose that cover shot??????????
LMAO probably Terry, if anybody does things his way it would be Terry Allen. He is a artist of many talents. I was lucky enuff to stumble on his first work Juarez which may be my favorite to this day but all of his music is needless to say damn interesting.Him and The Panhandle Mystery Band have a bunch of stuff to sample. His art is in high demand and he and his wife wrote several plays. Only on RP would ya hear Terry Allen and a couple of his friends Joe Ely and Robert Earl Keen, who was a roomate of Lyle Lovett at one time TY again Bill

I like a lot of Terry's stuff, but "Give Me a Ride to Heaven" is my favorite.

Not quite like Little Feat but not bad non the less. For what it's worth, T.A. does two different versions of this song.

Worst album cover photo ever?

Good Lord, this is the crappiest piece of noise I've heard here in a while. 'Course there was a buttload of songs throughout the day that really (uncharacteristically) sukcked, too. Must be mercy killing day or sumthin.
