Steve Earle released the original version in 1986. I’m putting it here because I like the bluegrass version he did with the Del McCoury band. I found a cover by Percy Sledge who covered other country songs over the years. If you like the Earle/McCoury combination, check out The Mountain (1999) an album of original bluegrass songs written by Earle. There are also other Earle/McCoury videos on YouTube.
He’s the one making it political. While he is president, I would only take a vaccine if Fauci says to do it. I don’t trust Trump.
What Kentucky did was ridiculous. Support the Louisville Community Bail Fund. I did. See the first tweet below.
Percy Mayfield wrote songs for Ray Charles after his own popularity waned. “Hit the Road Jack” was a big hit for Charles in 1961. Many years later, Mayfield’s demo was released.
Percy Mayfield’s “Stranger in My Own Hometown” is from 1964. I know it best from the cover by Taj Mahal in 1993 on his fine album Dancing the Blues. Mahal has done a great job covering songs by artists not remembered much now like T-Bone Walker, Fats Domino and Mayfield.
There are issues over “naked” ballots that don’t have an envelope inside the mailing envelope and how long mail ballots will be accepted. This will wind up in courts just like Republican voter suppression efforts in other states.
He’s a racist and anti-Semitic. I have no idea how Jews can vote for Trump after the “very fine people” comments about Charlottesville neo-Nazis. He also says that Israel is our country. Not true. I am an American.
