Not really a 'Foodee Song', but Guy Clark often seems to talk about food in his songs.

In Black Diamond Strings, he states "Black Diamond strings are like white flour and grits: You play Black Diamond strings 'cause it's all you can get."

My girlfriend had to explain this to me. Apparently, if you're low on grits, you can stretch it out a bit with white flour.

So, presumably, Black Diamond is not the preferred brand of guitar string.



But the main reason I posted this comes from another reference in the song's chorus: "Drinkin' 1 W Harper..."

What's he singing about there? Was that a brand of whiskey or soda pop that would have been sold in Texas?


(Uh...it seems I've once again linked to a video that has Emmylou Harris in it. Funny how often that happens, innit?)
