Road Song: Copperhead Road

Steve Earle: Copperhead Road (lyrics)
Album: Copperhead Road, 1998

This is a classic road song with "road" right there in the title, courtesy once again of MOH. I can't say that I have any particular memories around this song, but the music video is quite evocative with respect to the eastern backwoods (which I remember well from my years back there), Vietnam, and what might be protecting the younger John Lee Pettimore III's current crop, which isn't moonshine.
