Shawn Colvin — Shotgun Down the Avalanche

Post 5 of the 30 post music challenge. 
A song that reminds me of someone. 

This song is a song I was obsessed with more than a decade ago
when I was dating an Appalachian Trail through-hiker. 
At the time, I knew only a cover version of this song. 
It wasn't until years later than I realized this version existed. 

Every time I hear this song by SC and a couple of her other songs, 
I'm transported back to those nights I drove down foggy roads
by the river. I remember the smell of cigarette smoke 
on his flannel shirt, remember his slender hips and full lips
and this funny smile he had-- crooked and not quite white.
