More good stuff early in the morning....

here: "I was totin' my pack along the dusty Amarillo road, when along came a semi with a high and canvas-covered load..."

For the uninitiated, that's Brian Burns' Texas-centric take on the old Geoff Mack standard "I've Been Everywhere." I was never a big fan of the original version of that song -- which some no doubt would find surprising, considering my affinity for the old country -- but this version always brought a huge grin to my face, as much for the sheer genius on display in the song as my Texas pride. I would love to have been a fly on the wall as Brian Burns was coming up with that.
