Cowboy Junkies – Sun Comes Up It’s Tuesday Morning

The Cowboy Junkies are easily one of the most unpretentious bands in modern music. The sincerity in the voice of singer Margo Timmins and songwriting from her brother Michael is heartfelt. They’re here to tell a musical story and we are the captive audience.

In the Cowboy Junkies “Sun Comes Up, It’s Tuesday Morning” we hear the emotional tale of a woman who perhaps has had a rough life, but still seeks comfort in that which is familiar to her. She misses those things which reminded her of him, but she also likes being alone as well…

“Yeah, sure I’ll admit there are times when I miss you
Especially like now when I need someone to hold me
But there are some things that can never be forgiven
And I just gotta tell you that I kinda like this extra few feet in my bed…”

That last verse flows into one of the best lap/pedal steel guitar solo’s I’ve ever heard, played beautifully by Kim Deschamps, who later joined Blue Rodeo.

Listen now to the Cowboy Junkies – Sun Comes Up, It’s Tuesday Morning…
