Mary Karr is a poet, essayist and memoirist. Also the Peck Professor of English Literature at Syracuse University.
Born and raised in east Texas near the Gulf she has released four books of poetry and three memoirs.

Rodney Crowell is a songwriter, singer and musician. Also from east Texas, born and raised outside of Houston and the Gulf.
He has released 13 albums and produced records by others most note worthy by ex-wife Rosanne Cash.
He was influenced by Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt and a shared (with me that is) love and respect for John Lennon's writing.
I highly recommend his "Diamonds And Dirt" and "Fate's Right Hand" albums.

Both have been a fan of the others work but never met until last year Crowell called up Karr and asked for a dinner meet.
They said with in fifteen minutes they were both twelve years old again reliving their Texas past.
They shared some things in common like a violent childhood, alcoholic parents and bullet holes in the houses where they lived.
Crowell asked Karr if she would like to write some lyrics so that he could put them to music for songs.
The result is the answer to this thread.
An album titled "KIN, Songs By Mary Karr And Rodney Crowell".

Ten songs on this album performed by eight artists, Norah Jones, Vince Gill, Lucinda Williams, Lee Ann Womack. Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris Kris Kristofferson and Rodney Crowell.
My favorite one is performed by Norah Jones titled "If The Law Don't Want You", here are the lyrics.

I love to see them straw dogs round my door
Come sneaking round my
skirt tail looking for more
If you ain't running from the past
You ain't making my heart beat fast
You ain't chugging your paycheck
You ain't hugging on my neck

Well I've been looking for trouble from the git
Them cowboys back where I come from won't quit
Cutting up tires on an oyster shell
Siren screaming and he's running like hell
Momma's on the front porch staring him down
Ladies at the beauty shop coming unwound

If the law don't want you, neither do I
I ain't got no time to waste my shine
On a puppet with a clip-on tie
If the law don't want you, neither do I

I hired that boy to cut my grass
Nailed down a shingle but it couldn't get past
Staring at the bottom of his low-slung pants
Says he's gonna take me to the big buck dance

If the law don't want you, neither do I

I used to run wild down in Mexico
Hair jacked up and necklines plunging low
Some snake hip shirt rip giving me lip
Rifling my purse and stealing my tips
There's something 'bout a man can affect that lean
Keeping his hat all yanked down mean

If the law don't want you, neither do I
Play born to lose and you light my fuse
I'm a sucker for a bald-faced lie

Daily Mail by Radiohead. It's one of those songs that Radiohead have released online over the past few years. I'm not sure what it's about particularly but I'm supposing it's being critical of the Daily Mail which is a controversial and borderline racist/zenophobic newspaper in the uk but do we really want or need to hear Thom moaning about it?
