I herewith declare ‘Merle, Hank and Jonny’ to be the new official anthem of my blog Back Road Bound – it’s a fantastic song and I can relate to the lyrics quite a bit, although the circumstances in my case were a bit different, no Midwest dirt in my youth (but there was dirt, believe me) and I am not living in California either.
I actually visited the town Dan Bern was born and raised in (if I am informed correctly) Mount Vernon in Iowa in March of this year. Unfortunately it was a dreadful day with rain and sleet so the photos I took are of rather poor quality, but here are a few to give you an idea if you don’t know the town yourself.
One thought on “The official Back Road Bound Anthem Dan Bern – Merle, Hank and Johnny”
Nice version of the song, with just enough twang 🙂
