She Went Away

"Lady Luck looks down on me with a frown..." First up: a bad-luck story if ever there was one from 1965 by Gene Savage, the 'only man alive without a horoscope'. Over the top sad. Meanwhile Billy Rufus, on a fine Hank-inspired honky tonker from '67, ain't exactly a happy camper either. Locked his keys in his house and stands out in the rain, and that's not even half of it. Find both on a most excellent compilation called The Beginning Of The End - The Existential Psychodrama In Country Music.

"Have you ever been so down with the blues, you had to reach up to tie your shoes..." great line from that Billy Rufus song. Will check out that album - thank you.
