J.D. Salinger's Pretty Mouth and Green My Eyes

This is a blatant attempt to get hits by dropping a name that has been in the news recently. I even changed the title, which used to be "Night Caller" or "I Can See It All Right Now", to the name of the short story that inspired the song. J.D. Salinger is getting a revival of sorts thanks to a biography and since I recently recorded an updated version of the song I decided to cash in on the publicity.

 (2013 edition of "Night Caller")

The original Rambler version of this song, recorded in 1993, is here. You can also hear the Calhoon Brothers play it at the Las Cruces Inn back in the 70s..
