This session from Sam Doores and Riley Downing and The Tumbleweeds - a collection of songs that reminds you of a dirt floor and the hint of the devil and the saints -- makes me want to do all of the following:Dance with fire.Shoot a gun. Get a tattoo of a big-breasted woman on one of my arms. Run with the coyotes. Drink the stiffest bourbon out there, the kind that curls your toes. Work up three sweats in-a-row and keep on going without a shower. Remember everything I can about my grandfathers - both of whom wore overalls religiously. Think of a dog as my best friend. Even consider combing his fur, looking for ticks, just to be good to him. Drive drunk.Drive mad. Drive hung over. Learn to whistle better. Get into a fight that's going to make you hurt everywhere for a few days. Feel like I won. Bet it all on black.
