A blues-rocker about Johnson’s native town that wastes little time getting down to business. Johnson fills the gaps in the verses with clean, glassy, jazzy chords. The solo is a free-wheelin’ jaw-dropper, one in which notes summersault over one another. Jonny Lang’s vocals are dreamy one second, rough and bursting with barely contained emotion the next.
“The lyrics are about how much Austin has changed over the years. I’m a born-and-bred Texan, and I remember Austin as a kid, how it had such great nature and lakes and the Barton Creek Greenbelt. There’s been such a massive change in the landscape - that’s the price we pay for progress, which isn’t always a good thing.
"Again, I sang it originally, but I wanted more of a Stevie Wonder vibe on it, and I wasn’t convinced that my vocal did the job. Jonny happened to be in town playing a show, so he had off the next day and came in and overdubbed the vocal. I liked his singing better than mine, so that’s what I went with. I do like to sing, but I’m not precious at all about having to do the vocals. Whatever works, you know?”
