The Music - Joe Ely's blasts out "Boxcars" on BBC (1989)

And it's on that lonesome railroad track, I'm gonna lay my burden down

Lubbock legend Joe Ely blasts out a wonderful version of "Boxcars" on Jonathan Woss' Late Show on BBC back in 1989.

A dark yet witty tale of a rootless trouble soul living the hard life, "Boxcars" was written by Butch Hancock.

Joe recorded the song for his excellent 1978 album Honky Tonk Masquerade.
