Hattiesburg Hustle - Warren Haynes

from the album Man In Motion (2011)

I really dig the music of the American South.  If you walk barefoot through its fields, might the spirits of ancient troubadours seep from the ground and possess the corners of your soul?  Could this explain Ray Charles?  Muddy Waters?  Louis Armstrong?  Hank Williams?  The first verse of this Warren Haynes southern-rock gem portrays a seventeen year old kid - in days long past - hitting the road and marching to his musical destiny.  The song then contrasts this with modern times, where that road seems less attainable.  Still they keep coming.  So lay beneath some Georgia pines, shout at the moon until the dogs all howl, and take your best shot.  Whatever that may be.
