Dirt Hard As Gravel

More Robbie Fulks, again from his Gone Away Backward album, which I’m trying to jemmy into my album chart (see the rundown here)

This’ll kill you, or you’re already dead inside

 

“I can see in my mind’s eye
A shack on a hllside
A mean billy-goat on a chain
And Dad doing battle
With dirt hard as gravel
And summers the crops never came
We’d shoot down a pheasant in flight
And sing songs about Jesus all night”
