Ballad of Spider John for me. Like the story of the song...after all Spider is kind of like a land pirate.

VERY TOUGH. West Nashville is one of my favorites because he says so much with so few lines, but Wino is just one that has always resonated with me.

As much as I love Come Monday, it's gotta be Wino & I Know. I am just tryin to get by, being quiet and shy, in a world full of pushing and shove...

I was trying to go with only songs Buffett wrote, but Spider John is such a great song I had to pick that.

The Wino and I know and Come Monday are my favs...but I chose Wino because that's the one I like to play first when I put this CD on. :D

I would love if he ever did West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gowns in concert. It's my second favorite of all time.

West Nashville..... the Story is among the very best that Jimmy tells

Wino and I Know. Title is great, lyrics introspective of the good ole down to earth things in our lives. Percussion and pedal steel give it that country sound. The special percussion sounds...

I'm just tryin' to get by being quiet and shy;

Living my life like a song.

This song also makes me think of New Orleans The Cafe DuMond and Jimmy's mentors and friends there and other places.

Its brilliant songwriting. Short simple and to the point and tells a great story. Love it.

Gods Own Drunk and Ballad of Spider John are my two least favorite songs ever. Rather listen to anything else.

Come Monday and Wino are about even for me........but I gave it to Come Monday because it goes back much further for me.

West Nashville. Barely over Come Monday and Wino. Come Monday introduced me to Jimmy's music and was a favorite for years. Like anything else, hearing a song 5000 times takes some of the luster off of it I guess.
