Good Rockin' Tonight by Steve Yount
By the time Cody Hunter's parents rescued their son from the honky-tonk life, Cody had gained such insight into the human condition that there was very little reason to believe he would ever by satisfied with singing "Hail to Rockton High" at the homecoming football game, holding a steady job, tithing, or saving redeemable coupons to purchase patio/lawn furniture. In short, the odds were surpassing long that young Hunter would ever develop into a respectable citizen. The die was cast in lead, the mold discarded, for even the Angels despair of redeeming souls cursed to live out their teen-age fantasies.
