Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels On A Gravel Road

Joe writes: I revisited this album recently for the first time in years, yet several of the songs were still firmly logged in my mind - Right In Time, I Lost It (with the opening line "I think I lost it, let me know if you come across it"), Greenville, Still I Long For Your Kiss... It really is an excellent album; almost a classic. Listen on Spotify.

But my favourite of all is probably Metal Firecracker. The verse reminisces about the high points of a past relationship, then shifts to the devastating refrain "All I ask, don't tell anybody the secrets I told you".  According to this YouTube video, a metal firecracker is a tour bus. Lucinda plays Glastonbury on Sunday night.
