Days full of rain Skys comin' down again I get so tired Of these same old blues Same old song Baby, it won't be long 'fore I be tyin' on My flyin' shoes Flyin' shoes Till I be tyin' on My flyin' shoes. Spring only sighed Summer had to be satisfied Fall is a feelin' that I just can't lose I'd like to stay Maybe watch a winter day Turn the green water To white and blue Flyin' shoes Flyin' shoes Till I be tyin' on My flyin' shoes

This is another stalwart collection from Townes Van Zandt, and not a dud in the bunch. The melodies here are strong, the lyrics full of Van Zandt's razor sharp insight, and the production is sparse and to the point, bringing to mind the inconspicuous polish of High, Low and in Between. The feel here is a balance between folk and country, with Van Zandt's voice and guitar up front, letting the songs speak for themselves. The tunes are full of heartbreak and hopelessness, making it a great album to put on during, or right after, the breakup of an affair
