From Prodigal Son and 3 other releases
Prodigal Son is a seriously accomplished album, there is no clear understanding of how the name came about but elements of the father son relationship permeate it and crystallize in this track. It tells of a man not condemned, but looked upon with unwanted sympathy by his peers which influences the way his son thinks about him. It suggests a viewpoint where not being adept at acquiring and retaining money is indicative of serious character failings. But there is more to both father and son and by the end of the song you have to reappraise the position of the singer and by extension the son - if you have come to love them more then all credit to you. It will talk to you at a very human level, its delivered by one of the best guitarists around with no need for clever or superlfuous production techniques, whats not to like.
