The Wood Brothers: Luckiest Man

Happened across this song by The Wood Brothers, and it’s been my latest loop.

The odd thing to me is where I seem to fixate in the song. It’s not the main refrain, but this one specific part – it’s one particular rhyme:

You’re up against
too many horses
and mysterious forces

It’s the slide from horses, into the next line landing on “mysterious forces.” Something about that feels very satisfying to me, like a brick sliding into a perfectly fitted spot in a wall.

Needless to say it’s been on repeat for a while now, and is the soundtrack to a lot of my working hours.
