South Tejas Blues
South Tejas Blues Cougar Jones On South Tejas Blues, Cougar Jones sings songs of life. 'Ramon's Blues' and 'Cycle Of A Lifetime' deal with child abuse while 'Funny Feelin'' and 'Remember When' look at the lighter side of childhood. 'Warrior's Way,' 'Only With The Heart,' and 'Old Sayin'' offer Cougar's views on how to approach life. Then there are the 'road' songs: Roll On Freight Train, Time To Move On, and Visions Of Cody. The 'road' songs are about riding freight trains, hitch-hiking, and traveling across the country in a '66 VW bus. Cougar closes the album with a couple of political songs: 'South Tejas Blues' is a light hearted plea for the normalization of marijuana while 'Better Active Today' pleads for action against nuclear power. In the tradition of Woody Guthrie, Cougar presents these songs in a simple format: vocal, guitar, and harmonica.
