James McMurtry - "Copper Canteen"

Finally catching up with Complicated Game, James McMurtry's very fine album from February. He's got lots of stories tell, each of them buttressed with beautiful guitar melodies of the country/folk variety. A little bit Tunnel of Love, a little bit John Prine, it's all kinds of lovely. Here's a live version of "Copper Canteen," an utterly wonderful portrait of a long marriage with all the aches and pains included.
