I love "Little Things", it's the craziest sound, and Scott sings like a harmonizing foghorn, it's so weird

I was wrong about the gay cowboy bit. It has been a while since I last listened to "Thanks for Chicago Mr. James", and my memory was led astray by someone’s remarks I read somewhere that the song was a forebear of Brokeback Mountain, and Walker had never got credit for this kind of daring songwriting.

On listening to the song again, I see that the lyrics only suggest that the speaker is a rural drifter, not an actual cowboy. I wonder if Walker found the inspiration for this drama of rural drifter and big-city homosexual sugar daddy from somewhere in the Beats.

Missed this but would have voted ‘Joe’, which really should have been on the boy child comp
