Lucinda Williams - Austin City Limits Lucinda's tribute to Austin songwriter Blaze Foley, the "Duct Tape Messiah", an old drinking buddy of Townes van Zandt who was even crazier than Townes (and Townes was certified crazy, official diagnosis and all) who lived in dumpsters and passed out under pool tables and borrowed guitars to play gigs.
I'd post a link to my interpretation of Blaze's song "Cold Cold World", but I'm not sure of the legality of that so I won't.

Got no daddy but I got a ma think she lives in Arkansas maybe I'll go see her some old day It ain't like she'd really care it ain't like she'd pay no fare but I might just blow on through there anyway
Headed down to Alabam cause some trouble if I can Aw, buddy, would you like to come along? It's a place I never been and you know I could use a friend they say they'll give us twenty bucks a song
I gotta guitar all my own I gotta quarter for the telephone I ain't headed down this highway all alone One two three and maybe four Honey, they're knockin' on my door you know I'm gonna miss you when I'm gone
