An instrumental with a vocal introduction. A story told with music as much as with words. A poignant picture of an outlaw on the run.
Over the badlands of New Mexico,
gunshot -- bleeding from my side,
I crossed the Pecos in the moonlight,
and on in to Texas I did ride
on Handsome Jack.
The guitaring is awesome. The tempo switch is endearing, and changes the flavour unexpectedly. The violin interlaced with the steel guitar is a good touch!
If I could give this song 10 stars on instrumentation, that's just what I would do. You get a bunch of talented players like this together and magic happens! It's a one verse song as far as lyrics go, but the band carries the theme with skill and joyful playing. Honestly, I could listen to this kind of music for hours. Bravo for the fiddle, mandolin, guitars and everyone else who contributed to this amazing track.
Some solid musicianship....... Nice
