A great song, with one of the greatest lines of all time: "An honest man's pillow is his peace of mind."
Mellencamp is one of the great stories of the rock era. He started as a joke (and looked the part) as "Johnny Cougar," and somehow morphed over time to become a grizzled veteran who would produce great work and continue to do so until well into the 21st Century.
There was time when I wouldn't have been caught dead buying one of his albums. Now, I'd buy one without having heard a single song.
