Harry Dean Stanton – Canción Mixteca

At 88 years old, Staton's voice was even more perfect for this tune than when he sung it for Paris, Texas in 1984. The look on Harper Simon's face in the last couple bars gets me every time.

If you haven't picked up Partly Fiction, Stanton's 2014 album, you should. His covers of "She Thinks I Still Care" and "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" will blow you away. He doesn't steal them from George or Willie, but wears them like cracked old leather jacket he can't bear to part with.
