The song itself is pretty solid. It has a good classic structure. I'd tweak it a little to give it a bit more interest (i.e. a steel guitar solo, some backing vocals, some added simple instrumentation like a jews harp or harmonica) and I'd re-write the lyrics to some degree to make it more memorable or accessible. The lyrics as they are just aren't quite working for me. Good sound and production. the song itself reminds me of Steve Earle or early Eagles. If we electrified it , it would sound like The New Riders of The Purple Sage. Lyrically I'd add in some references to Weed, some current pop-culture personalities, Mexican drug cartels, seedy bars, maybe a murder or two etc. you know, just to make it interesting. Get back to me with the next take.
