While they rock a red sun down,
They'll look up from their talking,
See me walking down that road...
From Jesus, Pride & Dixie by Tim Henderson.
Tim Henderson is one of the finest songwriters around. When Toby first told me that she performed a song called Jesus, Pride & Dixie that a friend of hers wrote, I thought she was making a joke. Then I heard her play it and I got all teary eyed. Tim is a master songwriter, and like many of his other songs, this song proves it.
Tim is playing at the Evangeline Cafe tomorrow evening at 7 pm.
