Jamey Johnson takes a traditional approach to country songwriting, a stance not always commercially viable in the early 21st century. Johnson came to Nashville in and, after years of struggling, Angel - Jamey Johnson - That Lonesome Song The Dollar inbut when the label couldn't get a hit single off the album, they dropped him. Proving that chart success doesn't always equal happiness, Johnson 's marriage broke up around this time and he spent a long while in seclusion writing the desperate songs that make up That Lonesome Song.

Johnson first released the album on his website, then his own Humphead label, but Mercury Records picked it up for nationwide release in August of The raw emotion and barely controlled heartache that Johnson brings to his singing and songwriting on the album aren't exactly in style in 's country market, but lovers of old-fashioned hardcore country and honky tonk music will be stunned by its emotional depth and strong melodies. Most modern country singers flounder when they try to put across a ballad, often loading down the lyric with sentimentality rather than real feeling.

On an album that's almost exclusively ballads, Johnson never falls into that trap. The songs are full of keen insights, clever turns of phrase, and real emotion. The Hammond B-3 that plays in the background makes it sound like an anti-gospel Angel - Jamey Johnson - That Lonesome Song and the hook uses the kind of wordplay that used to be the hallmark of country songwriting -- "The high cost of living ain't nothing like the cost of living high.

The song doesn't sound like a celebration of newfound freedom; it's a hopeless dirge delivered in a flat, emotionless tone that makes the song even more effective. It's followed by a Bob McDill tune, "The Door Is Always Open," one of the few hopeful numbers Tift Merritt - Another Country the album, although its lyric and Johnson 's delivery give the song a Deaf Boatman - Alun Grammar School Girls Choir* - The Alun Madrigal Singers hopeful spin that you'd expect.

The title tune paints the picture of a bleak, hung-over morning. It starts as a acoustic lament, then slowly adds a loping Waylon Jennings beat to deliver a cautionary tale of a singer who throws his life away for the love of a lonesome song.

It's a tongue-in-cheek tune with a great pedal steel break, and rides that jaunty Waylon two-step stomp rhythm. The album closes with the self-congratulatory tale of Johnson 's quest for fame, a guy who comes to Nashville with his own sound, somewhere "Between Jennings and Jones.

His ironic delivery of the tune is perfect and as he points out in the lyric, if they still had record stores, his albums would be filed between Jennings and Jones.

    Jamey Johnson - Angel Lyrics. The voice on the telephone sounds awful angry And somehow it doesnt fit in The face in the picture I keep on my dresser Of a girl I once called my best friend We drank from the fountain of good times and dreaming But lawyers have poisoned the well And as our love is dyin' they're makin' a killin' Off.

    I'm hummin' on that lonesome song again I took a trip across the country from Montgomery Discovered I'd been wrong for so long I thought it was the fame and the glory and the money But all I've got to show is a damn song And it's sad and it's long And can't nobody sing along It's a south bound train It's a whistle in the wind.
