From the recording A View Askewed Too
I came to this song via my beloved Linda Ronstadt. It's a Warren Zeavon track. You get the sense at the beginning of the song that there's a long lost romantic assignation, maybe even resignation, and then you hear the word...heroin.
An amazing song, evocative, wide screen, and very real. If Sam Peckinpah had written songs he'd have written something like this.
