You Oughta Be Here With Me
1. Head Hung Down
(Robert Gateley/Berwick Trail Music, BMI)

Jamie: “We were in the studio, about finished, and needed a barn burner to open the album. I called my friend Robert Gateley, who said he’d just finished one. We listened to it, arranged, and recorded it the same day.” Darrin: “We thought how great it would be to have Harold Reid do the judge’s line in his deep bass voice. Up to now, he had only recorded with the Statler Brothers and guested on Johnny Cash records as part of the Statlers, but he agreed to do it.” Harold tags the track in his comedy character of Lester “Roadhog” Moran. (Lester and The Cadillac Cowboys were a dimwitted local country band, and cult alter egos of the Statler Brothers on 1974’s Alive at the Johnny Mack Brown High School.)
