    Have the movie he was talking about on DVD, have seen Prine numerous times in concert, have Iris's autograph after a concert in St. Cloud, MN. These two are awesome.

    No one could have written this except John Prine, and no one could sing it better than Iris DeMent and John Prine. Her voice fits perfectly. As original as original can be, and a gift, a great gift.

    She don't like her eggs all runny
    She thinks crossin' her legs is funny
    She looks down her nose at money
    She gets it on like the Easter Bunny
    She's my baby
    I'm her honey
    I'm never gonna let her go

    He ain't got laid in a month of Sundays
    I caught him once and he was sniffin' my undies
    He ain't too sharp but he gets things done
    Drinks his beer like it's oxygen
    He's my baby
    And I'm his honey
    Never gonna let him go

    In spite of ourselves
    We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
    Against all odds
    Honey, we're the big door prize
    We're gonna spite our noses
    Right off of our faces
    There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
    Dancin' in our eyes.

    She thinks all my jokes are corny
    Convict movies make her horny
    She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs
    Swears like a sailor when shaves her legs
    She takes a lickin'
    And keeps on tickin'
    I'm never gonna let her go.

    He's got more balls than a big brass monkey
    He's a wacked out weirdo and a love bug junkie
    Sly as a fox and crazy as a loon
    Payday comes and he's howlin' at the moon
    He's my baby
    I don't mean maybe
    Never gonna let him go

    In spite of ourselves
    We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
    Against all odds
    Honey, we're the big door prize
    We're gonna spite our noses
    Right off of our faces
    There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
    Dancin' in our eyes.

    So long (years, and more), so very very long I've cried out for the brotherhood of red-neck.
    Here now? a new song from the fellow who so often afforded me means to buy my kids' food. Even their Christma presents.
    _(You ain't heard _*_nuthin'_*_ so long you have not heard Dylan played on a good Oscar Schmidt. Truth!)_

      First song of his that caught my ear was "There's a hole in daddys arm" ...back around 1972 durring the 'Nam war . Shoe fit & I wore it . Just awhile . But from what I came to understand was that both John Prine & Kris Kristoferson were pretty much both both "understudies" & the "spawn" of the late / great Johnny Cash . We are Truly Blessed huh ? ;>)

      I discovered him back in the mid to late 70's on an obscure blue grass and alternate type radio station of the day. Lost track of him for decades until just a few years ago on Youtube, thank you, Youtube. No memories can be left to be be forgoten anymore.
