Struggle & strive
Normally I wouldn't be so fond of the old time country sound, but Hank Williams makes a good point in this song: I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive (coincidentally his final single). And it's so damn endearing. And it's a perfect choice as the theme for The Life and Times of Tim on HBO. And would you believe it? Hank didn't make it out alive. He died at 29 in the back seat of a Cadillac with beer cans, morphine, a bottle of whisky and pages of his lyrics.
