The Songs of Mike Cooley


"I make more money off t-shirts. If you rip it, burn it, give it to somebody, and they come to a show and buy a ticket and a t-shirt, I profit more that way anyway, and then I've got a fan. Records are promotional items these days anyway"

What better way to introduce some songs from my 'favorite' Trucker, and one that can turn a phrase with the best of of'em.

Gravity's Gone
A Ghost To Most
Birthday Boy
Bob
3 Dimes Down
Space City
Self-Destructive Zones
72 (This Highway's Mean)
Loaded Gun In The Closet
Marry Me
Carl Perkins' Cadillac
Zip City
Sounds Better In The Song
Get Downtown
Women Without Whiskey
Daddy's Cup
Shut Up And Get On The Plane
Eyes Like Glue

You made a few good points there. I did a search on the topic and hardly got any specific details on other sites, but then great to be here, really, thanks.
