purchase [Aint No Good Chain Gang]
Love can make you a prisoner. Love can set you free.
I got the sense that a search of <Prison> resolved to an inordinate number of country songs. You call it: maybe there's no corellation -I thought there might be one. I've got no money on any side here. I love and wish I could play along with the best bluegrass or country players. But folklore would seem to side with me: The origin of many outlaws? .... country. Bootleggers? ... country. I won t go deeper - it's not my personal opinion... just [insert Mr Trump] ...fact.
So ... apparently lots of prison experience in the realm of country music. Guess that means there's a lot of content/first hand expeience to write about. Perhaps (just thinkin).
We've got Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash here doing a song about time inside: "There Aint No Good Chain Gang".
You might take a few seconds to picture the classic chain gang in order to gain some perspective before you prceed. As a good investigative reporter would prompt you, ask: "who, what, where, when... how?" Heck, even the name of this group pushes my point: what does the name Highwaymen evoke?
The Highwaymen were a "country supergroup" - Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson. This song and its album, however, were produced by a slimmed down group: just Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash
My vision of a chain gang is the swamps of .... somewhere south. A good place to learn some lessons - that is - if you are of the type that learns lessons in prison. He sings:
There aint no good in an evil hearted woman (true)
I aint cut out to be no Jesse James (probably not)
Dont go writing hot cheques (well ... yes)
Most likely, if you do, you'll end up <a-laying in jail>
