By P Magnum HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on April 17, 2013
"Highway Patrolman" is a great story song that was so cinematic in it's delivery that Sean Penn adapted the song into his 1991 directorial debut The Indian Runner. The song deals with the Roberts brothers, Joe & Frankie who are opposite sides of the law. Joe is a failed famer who takes a job as a highway patrolman and Frankie is a vet who is always getting into trouble. One night Joe gets a call that there has been a fight at a bar with the attacker being Frank. Joe gets into a high speed chase with Frankie but backs off and lets him cross over the Canadian border. Joe knows that blood is thicker than the law, so he lets Frankie escape. Maybe he thinks that jail will only harden Frankie more and that a fresh start in a new place would be what's best.
