Steve Earle – Copperhead Road (1988)

Cool. The lyrics are about this super poor guy from rural Tennessee whose father and grandfather were both bootleggers; he enlists in the military and gets sent to Vietnam, then when he gets back he grows weed and sets booby traps for the Feds using his knowledge he acquired from the Viet Cong. Then an ice dragon named Krallnar visits his marijuana plantation and he defeats the ice dragon using a sword made out of magma, called the FireBlade. I made up the part about the ice dragon. Or did I? (Yes, I did.) This song has been described as “alternative country” and “power twang.” Power twang!?
