waiting around to die

i don't know if anyone saw the documentary about Townes Van Zandt that came out a few years ago. its called be here to love me and its great. Townes gets married young and he and his wife get this apartment which has an extra room and Townes decides to use to it as his "writers workshop" to give a shot at writing songs. so just married, never wrote a song, busts out of this room and sings "waiting around to die." the marriage never recovered.

here he is in the movie 'heartworn highways' singing his song and making an old man cry. seriously.
