'Cowboy' Jack Clement Talks Guitars With Matt Sweeney



A week ago, we shared with you the fourth installment of Noisey's Guitar Moves series, in which Black Key and Nashville resident Dan Auerbach sat down with Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Zwan, Skunk, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, more) to talk shop. Guitar shop. Well, for this week's Guitar Moves (not an intentional Bob Seger reference, apparently), Sweeney came to Nashville to chat and play with Country Music Hall of Famer and recent Scene cover boy "Cowboy" Jack Clement.

In the clip, which you can watch above, Sweeney displays appropriate reverence as Cowboy plays "You Are My Sunshine," "Just a Girl I Used to Know" and more and talks about his gorgeous old Gibson. The highlight, however, comes when Cowboy discusses his writing of Jerry Lee Lewis' 1957 tune "It'll Be Me." You know the "If you find a lump in your sugar bowl" line? Well, let's just say the original lyric was a little bit ... shittier.
