The Wisdom of Earle  

“Sittin' around trying to figure out whether I wrote songs, ya know, about things that hadn’t happened to me and they happened to me later, or whether, umm, sometimes you’re writin’ about stuff that you’ve already done and sometimes you write about stuff you’re thinking about doin’ it……  and sometimes, sometimes you make shit up because reality does not rhyme.”

Steve Earle: Poet-Sage/Admitted Bullshitter
