Tom Faulkner - Fried Chicken Skin Song

The great Tom Faulkner. From Dallas. A near perfect first album in terms of recording quality, songs, performance. Lost in the Land of Texico should be in everyone's collection. Here, though, is a clip from a few years back when he gave me a shout out at a performance over Easter week-end in La Grange, Texas. Ironically, the next day, Easter Sunday, on a backroads bluebonnet sightseeing slow drive back to Houston, we came across the annual Easter Sunday Moulton, Texas fried chicken lunch and my first introduction to the giant cast iron pots that are used in this part of the world to fry up huge amount of chicken.  Here's the video clip:
