This old earthquake's gonna leave me in the poorhouse
It seems this whole town is insane
On the thirty first floor, a gold plated door
Won't keep out the Lord's burning rain
Leaving you this weekend with a personal favorite ode to Las Vegas from the grievous angel Gran Parsons and Byrd member Chris Hillman's short lived project the Flying Burrito Brothers. "Sin City" is the perfect song to cue up on your I-pod as you begin your descent into McCarran International Airport. Sneaky Pete Kleinow's pedal guitar sets the perfect scene with Parsons' ever so lovable twang.
Station to Station will be back next Thursday.
