Kerri Powers’ song “Tallulah Send a Car for Me” (2009) is totally excellent!
With an opening line like “Can’t wear my alligator boots in church … Preacher says all they ever do is drag in dirt. I think I got some dirt on his clean white shirt” you hardly need anything else.
But Powers presses on with more great lyrics and a broken-bourbon bottle bluesy voice that recalls crickets in the holler on the dark of the moon — all with that steel-string guitar keeping up the rest of the conversation.
Thanks to my friend Brenda over at Brenda Prescott Muses for the tip on Kerri Powers.
