Afternoon Snack: Hayes Carll, “Bad Liver and a Broken Heart”

I had never heard of Hayes Carll (or the Drive by Truckers, for that matter) till I joined the BileTones, and our lead singer, Tom Nelson insisted we cover songs by each.

The Hayes Carll nomination was this song, which Peter’s last “Name That Tune” brought to mind.

It’s a killer song, very funny, and it rocks.

I tried to find a good live version, and this was the best (in fact, Carll opened for the Truckers at this gig). Most of the live stuff is digital phone, hand held. But, do try to catch the words if you dare.

Check him out, though. I mean, how can you not love a guy who wrote a song called One Bed, Two Women, Three Bottles of Wine?
