John Prine “Knockin’ on Your Screen Door” – Listen

Dear old RS are pointing us today towards another new track from John Prine’s first solo album of new material since 2005, ‘The Tree of Forgiveness’. The track is called ‘Knockin’ on Your Screen Door’ and is co-written with Pat McLaughlin, whose credits include cuts by Alan Jackson, Trisha Yearwood and some other cheesy country. As they describe it “the tune is prime Prine, an uptempo folk song with a downbeat message from the perspective of a lonely, destitute man whose only possession is a George Jones 8-track tape.”
