Favourite story song

C'est la Vie (You Never Can Tell). I heard Emmylou Harris's version first and backtracked it to Chuck Berry. I like the Emmylou version best, but Chuck wrote it. Many of Chuck's songs were stories. He was great with words, and the meter and rhythm of lyrics and painting vivid pictures in the listener's mind.

Willie Nelson: "There are two kinds of men. Those who are in love with Emmylou Harris, and those who haven't met her."
