Video From A Troubadour

So, y'all know that my two favorite writers in the English language are not novelists, but rock stars. I may be stretching it a bit to call Kris Kristofferson, Army veteran, helicopter pilot, Rhodes Scholar and country legend, a rock star, but check out this video. The link is on Kristofferson's website, but apparently, it appears courtesy of Neil Young's website.

It's painful, like a great folk song or an Irish ballad, and poetic, like the best literary fiction, but unfortunately, it's all too true. It's the best music video I've seen since Johnny Cash did "Hurt".

"Hurt" goes onto the list as my favorite video of all time.

Troubadour? From the Stones? Sympathy for the Devil?
