Heavenly Houseboat Blues

Townes Van Zandt


From "The Turning of the Wheel." Recorded live in the living room of Christine Albert & Chris Gage with a bunch of my friends providing singalong support alongside Rich Brock--who is also my friend--playing some lovely harmonica. The song is by Townes Van Zandt (pictured above) who once said "There are two types of music: the blues and Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah." This lands somewhere in the middle I guess, leaning slightly to the Zip-A-Dee-Etc end of the spectrum.
