Americana Highways bring you this premiere of Sour Bridges’ song “Merita’s Tune (Riverboat Man)” from their forthcoming EP Roll Us Up Something Good. The EP, their 5th release, written by Bill Pucci features his brother Matt Pucci on guitar, Will Vaughan on bass and Dalton Chamblee on percussion.
“Merita’s Tune (Riverboat Man)” captures the good-time vibe of a porch picking’ party, while reflecting the working man’s woes and vices.
“Merita’s Tune (Riverboat Man)” is a river song. It’s a workin’ boy sailing down the Ohio River, destination – New Orleans. It’s Merita; a late night dancer that always has time for one more song. It’s a day in the life of a boy on his way to becoming closer to a man. It’s a look in his head at how the river makes him feel and what the words “home” and “labor” mean to a riverboat man. “Every time I go, I never wanna go back home…” – Bill Pucci
