"But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more"

This week's Friday traditio is Old Crow Medicine Show singing "Darius Rucker," more popularly known as "Wagon Wheel."



Like Gram Parsons' song "Return of the Grievous Angel," this song makes you homesick. It is transcendent by being deeply existential. We've all been there: alone, cold, hungry, broke, far from home, but not without hope.



Oh, north country winters keep a-getting me down
Lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more
