Words And Music

Dublin Core

Title

Words And Music

Description

Roger Miller starts coming to grip with his demons on Words and Music, dealing with:
cigarettes - "I'm a two pack a day man, smoke like a fiend"
lost love - "more and more I think about you less and less"
devotion and jealousy - "please remember you're my kingdom and I'll always wear the crown"
and misery - "I'm tired of havin' no future, livin' on things that I've done, and I'm tired of sittin' on the sidetrack, watchin' the mainline run"

In the liner notes, Johnny Mercer praises Miller's ability to combine "an almost legendary folk-feel with an up-to-date country viewpoint of the world around him. A fast-changing world where generations are hard to bridge."
