Every once in a while you find a song so brilliant that it sticks in your head for days. This is one of those songs. I’ve followed Louris for years now (through the Jayhawks and Golden Smog), and this is one of his finest songs. On the surface it seems like a simple country ditty—don’t let that dissuade you.
For me, this sounds precisely like what God was trying to say through Ezekiel. God kept chasing his people while they kept running after their own addictions, oblivious to their heartbroken Lover. Ezekiel would have used spicier language, though!
