The Steel Wheels recently popped into McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, California, for a resonator-driven performance of "Heaven Don't Come by Here" surrounded by walls full of guitars. "Born with a name, but no name to say, 'cause heaven don't come by here," they sing to lay out the case, before defiantly insisting, "Don't bring your flowers; nothing here grows. Don't bring your flowers like you didn't know. Don't bring your flowers anymore." It's a potent plea, passionately delivered and worthy of inclusion among the classics of the form.
