"Oil Patch Desk Jockey" refers to that hat getting in the way of his guitar strap. One of the funniest routines I ever saw was at the Sunday breakfast for the Cochise Cowboy Poetry & Music Gathering about 3 years ago. I suspected he might do that often. It seemed to take longer to get ready for the song than to do the song. He's wearing his hat and trying to put the guitar strap over his head. He moves the hat around, keeps trying several different ways. The frustration is building. He just doesn't know what to do. Then in desperation he finally gives up and puts the guitar on the floor, makes a circle of the strap/guitar, and steps into it much like a woman would step into a skirt.

Is it any wonder that I remember that routine and not the song he and Liz sang. But I really enjoy their singing too. I have two of their CDs, the double and "Kids at Heart," which Liz recommended. I'm glad she did because I am one and that music is some of the best by both of them.
