These are the songs I like listed by author.

Choctaw Bingo – James McMurtry: Just another Texas boy with a guitar.

Ray Wylie Hubbard – Choctaw Bingo: Just another Oklahoma boy with a guitar.

The Traveling Wilburys – End Of The Line: The Lyrics are, in my opinion, are some of the best lyrics ever written. If I ever got into tattoos, these would probably be recorded on my chest.

The Rolling Stones – Waiting On A Friend

Neil Young – Old Man

Litttle Feat – Dixie Chicken

John Prine and Iris DeMent – In Spite of Ourselves

Sheryl Crow - All I Wanna Do

Rolling Stones - Dead Flowers

Dire Straights – Money For Nothing: I’d be hard pressed to name my favorite Dire Straights song. I also like Sultans of SwingSo Far Away and Walk of LIfe. Money for nothing was, however, a seriously big hit.

Tom Petty – Learning To Fly

Chris Knight – Highway Junkie:

Turnpike Troubadours – Gin, Smoke, Lies: I like 7&7 better. Face it, 4,232,200 views on YouTube is a dead giveaway. It’s the lyrics – trust me. Every Girl is also one of my favorites. Just some more Oklahoma boys in a band.

Robert Earl Keene – The Road Goes On Forever: I’m not sure this is my favorite REK song. Maybe it’s Feelin’ Good Again or I’m Comin’ Home or That Buckin’ Song or Gringo Honeymoon.

Boys From Oklahoma · Cross Canadian Ragweed: Okay, it’s kinda loud at the Wormy Dog Saloon, but maybe that’s good.

Hayes Carll – Drunken Poet’s Dream:

Toby Keith – Beer For My Horses ft. Willie Nelson: I just like the song and this version has a funny video. Just another Oklahoma boy with a guitar.

Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard – Pancho & Lefty: Just another Texas boy with a guitar.

Ry Cooder – Fool For A Cigarette/Feelin’ Good: The most profound one line statement I’ve ever heard is “All the money in the world is spent on feeling good.” This where I heard it. I started listening to Ry Cooder in 1970 but my favorite album is Paradise and Lunch (1974).

Bob Dylan – Mr. Tambourine Man (Live at the Newport Folk Festival. 1964): Very early Dylan. I’m not sure he was even shaving.

Simon and Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence

The Doors – Light My Fire – 1967: Old. TV stuff. Not the best Doors video but it doesn’t drag on and it gives you the essence of who they were in their early years.

Jefferson Airplane – White Rabbit, Live from Woodstock 1969: Not the best video but it does show the lyrics and it is from Woodstock.

Garth Brooks Friends in Low Places Live 1990: Just another Oklahoma boy with a guitar.

Otis Taylor – Hey Joe – Rare Photos: It’s the pictures, man.

Paul Thorn – I Guess I’ll Just Stay Married: It’s a little philosophical. Sorta bluesy. Sorta sad. Sorta life.
