"Choctaw Bingo" by James McMurtry

For the Fourth of July weekend, here's James McMurtry and his 12-string with a pristine performance of "Choctaw Bingo," his great American epic of the Texahoma crystal meth industry, gun nuttery, Indian smokeshops, and that big ole catfish caught up in Lake Eufaula. As a lyric portraitist, McMurtry paints a highly recognizable picture of a large part of America today. (And yes, he's Larry's son.)
