Remember when David dashed
A twelve pack
Of Budweiser heavy for the road
Two kids in the back
Drunk off their ass
Screaming in an old Bronco

And I recall what she said
That she wanted me dead
But there ain't no grave deep enough
Remember all the nights we had
You said it ain't so bad
Keep those heavy eyes looking up

Remember when Mary brought
Her own Jane
Lucas thought he was gonna die
The stars started falling out
Of a night cloud
From a clear Midwestern sky

I recall what she said
Screaming that the sky is red
Burning to a younger man's mind
Remember all the days we had
I'd say it ain't so bad
Keep those heavy eyes soft and kind

Oh when I'm old
I will recall
All the nights we spent outlaws
It's getting cold
But that sun is cresting
And heavy eyes ain't born for resting

Who's gonna drive us home
The boys and me
Are walking staggered vision blurred
One thing you'll come to know
The boys back home
Live for things like dead man's curve

I recall what he said
He'd rather be gone and dead
Than livin' like those sad folks in town
I can't take this soul with me
If I go I'm goin' quickly
Keep those heavy eyes free and proud

Oh when I'm old
I will recall
All the nights we spent outlaws
It's getting cold
But that sun is cresting
And heavy eyes ain't born for resting

Oh when I'm old
I will recall
All the nights we spent outlaws
It's getting cold
But the sun in cresting
And heavy eyes ain't born for resting

My second listening to that song. I  correct my rate from 7 to 8!
Old 97's meets Split Lip Rayfield meets Zach Bryan.

DBT was my impression as well.
I'm assuming Zach is Bill's nephew given how much airplay it's getting.

Quite like this but a pale imitation to Ryan Bingham from Texas, how many times have I tried to get the great man and band play listed? I guess not enough times
Cover made me think of

Latter day Steve Earl - a good thing.
I am going for it on first listen.

Lots of first listens recently! Thanks RP!
