Derb Sees The Light

OK, I am sitting here in an empty house (wife at work, kids at school, dog

on backyard patrol) listening to a CD of Hank Williams singing gospel songs

(this one). Now I see how basic

gospel was to all his music. His pop hits were just built around these old

gospel songs. “Lost Highway” is just “A House of Gold”; “You Win Again,” if

you listen from the next room, is just “A Tramp on the Street.” OK,

everybody knew this but me. Now I know it, too.
