James McMurtry's "Complicated Game" is one of the best albums of the decade, and on it he demonstrates a knack for storytelling that rivals that of his famous father.
"South Dakota" may be the best song on the album. It tells the story of a soldier returned home from the war, who ultimately ends up thinking that he just might have made the wrong choice.
"Because there ain't much between the Pole and South Dakota
And barbed wire won't stop the wind
You won't get nothing here but broke and older
If I was you I might re-up again"
