From the recording Just Got Into Town
This song is interesting because the music came first. Often I'll write a song with lyrics and melody first. As singing was my first love, I do have that ability to start singing a melody and add lyrics and music later. This one was different in that I was playing a chord progression that to me had a Johnny Cash vibe. In fact, as I don't write or read music, there's a chord in the song that I can't identify, but I refer to it as my "Johnny Cash Chord". That chord was the inspiration for the "old western" theme of "I Just Got Into Town".
My producer, the incomparable David Jackson, always lets me do whatever crazy thing I want to do, however, this time he pushed my Johnny Cash theme in an Al Green direction, so the listener gets a really phenomenal blend of musical styles.
With that in mind, please enjoy!
