Lyle Lovett

 

 

Surprised disovery today that we had neglected Lyle Lovett for this long. Now we find ourselves with a month of Sundays featuring the great Lyle Lovett on Durham Cool. A just outcome for a worthy musician. Do you remember the first time you listened to Pontiac Lyle’s first album? I do as it was the summer of my senior year of high school where I spent just about every weekend at cascadilla Creek and a place called flat Rock, reading the latest Thomas McGuane or Don Delillo. Pontiac was one of the first cassettes I listened to on my new Sony Walkman while the creek flowed on by.

Lyle Lovett and Rickie Lee Jones – North Dakota (Live)

 

And the boys from North Dakota; They drink whiskey for their fun. And the cowboys down in Texas; They polish up their guns. And they look across the border To learn the ways of love… If you love me, say, “I love you”. If you love me say, “I do”. If you love me, say, “I love you”. If you love me, say, “I do”. And you can say, “I love you” And you can say, “I do” So I drank myself some whiskey. And I dreamed I was a cowboy. And I rode across the border. If you love me, say, “I love you”. If you love me take my hand. If you love me, say, “I love you”. If you love me take my hand. And you can say, “I love you”, And you can have my hand. I remember in the morning waking up With your arms around my head. You told me, “You can sleep forever And I’ll still hold you then.” Now the weather’s getting colder, And It’s even cold down here. And the words that you have told me They hang frozen in the air. And sometimes I look right through them As if they were not there…

Lyle Lovett – LA County

 

 

Lyrics
She left Dallas for California
With an old friend by her side
Well he did not say much
But one year later
He’d ask her to be his wife
And the lights of L.A. County
Look like diamonds in the sky
When you’re driving through the hours
With an old friend at your side
One year later I left Houston
With an old friend by my side
Well it did not say much
But it was a beauty
Of a coal black .45
And the lights of L.A. County
Look like diamonds in the sky
When you’re driving through the hours
With an old friend at your side
So I drove on all the day long
And I drove on through the night
And I thought of her a’waiting
For to be his blushing bride
And the lights of L.A. County
They looked like diamonds in the sky
As I drove into the valley
With my old friend at my side
And as she stood there at the altar
All dressed in her gown of white
Her face was bright as stars a’shining
Like I’d dreamed of all my life
And they kissed each other
And they turned around
And they saw me standing in the aisle
Well I did not say much
I just stood there watching
As that .45 told them goodbye
And the lights of L.A. County
Look like diamonds in the sky
When you’re kneeling at the altar
With an old friend at your side
And the lights of L.A. County
Are a mighty pretty sight
When you’re kneeling at the altar
With an old friend at your side

Lyle Lovett – On Imus in the Morning

I know Don Imus is somewhat controversial, but consider the good works in balance with some unfortunate words and deeds of the past. This is a good interview and Lyle studio live performance. I do miss Don Imus, his humor was sopmorphic at times but he was an avid reader, lover of interesting people, and an accidental/intentional good samaritan with his ranch for kids with cancer and the siblings of children passed early from Sids.

“Simple Song” is such a well-composed lyric. Something truly profound occurs when you listen to this song.
