A Dirt Floor Of Alligators
Words by Sean Moeller, Illustration by Johnnie Cluney, Recording engineered by Mike Gentry
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 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.
