Back at the drive-in, Ennis and Cassie bicker while trying to watch "The Empire Strikes Back" during a wind storm.

#12 Glen Campbell's "Southern Nights"

This is playing while Ennis has his apple pie (in a Denny's, not a Groundhog station LOL).

~~~

Southern nights have you ever felt a
Southern night free as a breeze
Not to mention the trees
Whistling tunes that you know and love so

Southern nights just as good even when
Closed your eyes, I apologize
To any one who can truly say
He has found a better way

Feel so good, feel so good, it's frightening
Wish I could stop this world from fighting
La da da da da da, la da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da da

Mysteries like this and many others
In the trees blow in the night
In the southern skies

Southern skies have you ever noticed
Southern skies it's precious beauty
Lies just beyond the eye
It goes running through your soul like the stories of old

Old man he and his dog they walk the old land
Every flower touched his cold hand
As he slowly walked by
Weeping willows would cry for joy

Writer(s): Allen Toussaint

#13 Johnny Paycheck's "Take This Job and Shove It"

On the radio while Ennis is driving to Lightning Flat.

~~~

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

I've been working in this factory
For nigh on fifteen years
All this time I watched my woman
Drowning in a pool of tears

And I've seen a lot of good folks die
That had a lot of bills to pay
I'd give the shirt right off my back
If I had the guts to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Well that foreman he's a riggity dog
The line boss he's a fool
Got a brand new flattop hair cut
Lord he thinks he's cool

One of these days I'm gonna blow my top
And that sucker he's gonna pay
Lord I can't wait to see their faces
When I get the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
Take this job and shove it

Last one: #14 George Strait's "All My Exes Live in Texas"

Playing on Alma Jr.'s radio in Troy's Chevy Camaro.

~~~

All my ex's live in Texas
And Texas is the place I'd really love to be
But all my ex's live in Texas
And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.

Rosanna's down in Texarkana
Wanted me to push her broom
Sweet Eileen's in Abilene
She forgot I hung the moon
And Allison's in Galveston
Somehow lost her sanity
And Dimple's who now lives in Temple's
Got the law looking for me.
All my ex's live in Texas
And Texas is the place I'd really love to be
But all my ex's live in Texas
And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.
--- Instrumental ---
I remember that old Frio River
Where I learned to swim
But it brings to mind another time
Where I wore my welcome thin
By transcendental meditation
I go there each night
But I always come back to myself
Long before daylight.

All my ex's live in Texas
And Texas is the place I'd really love to be
But all my ex's live in Texas
Therefore I reside in Tennessee.

Some folks think I'm hidin'
It's been rumored that I died
But I'm alive and well in Tennessee...

That was fun!  I think Diana did an excellent job. 

I guess getting the rights would be prohibitively expensive.

Plus, this way, Gustavo got to write all his excellent songs!

#11 Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love"

Of course, Cassie's song.  Rather than "It's So Easy".

~~~

Hey (hey) What's the matter with your head? yeah
Hey (hey) What's the matter with your mind and your sign?
And-a ooh-ohh
Hey (hey) Nothin's a matter with your head, baby, find it
Come on and find it
Hell, with it, baby, 'cause you're fine and you're mine
And you look so divine

Come and get your love
...

This is my official hailstorm soundtrack, lo, these many years.  :)

Good series. I'm learning lots.
