I absolutely love the “It’s like trying to shovel smoke with a pitchfork in the wind”.  It’s such good imagery for “practically impossible.”

It has a great atmosphere. Evocative lyrics too – trying to shovel smoke with a pitchfork in the wind.

Old Dirt Road and Scared have a similar ascending progression, but totally different payoffs. “I’m Scarred” back into that deep blues vs the euphoric “Old Dirt Road” refrain
