I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: a little kiss in between my dogs eyes, Chapstick, wallet sometimes, and a plastic toothpick, and on a long trip… a Hemingway book.
I WROTE THIS SONG: It was the best folk song I’ve been able to pen. It ran all over the place lyrically touching on loyalties, royalties, novelties, theft, disappointment, and a little mythology. In short I tell people it’s about being high in public.
