    Yep. On top of losing Jerry Jeff Walker recently, the industry is losing some giants.

    My favorite lyrics in country music are his:

    Way down in Louisiana
    amongst the tall grown sugar canes
    Lived a simple man and a Dominiker hen
    and a rose of a different name

    The first time I felt lightning
    I was standing in the drizzlin' rain
    With a trembling hand and a bottle of gin
    and a rose of a different name

    The devil made me do it the first time
    The second time I done it on my own
    Lord put a handle on this simple handed man
    help me leave that black rose alone

    When the devil made that woman
    Lord she threw the pattern away
    She was built for speed with the tools you need
    to make a new fool every day

    Way down deep and dirty
    on the darker side of shame
    I caught a cane cuttin' man with a bottle of gin
    with a rose of a different name

    The devil made me do it the first time
    The second time I done it on my own
    Lord put a handle on this simple handed man
    help me leave that black rose alone

    Saw him at a small old church in Nash County about 15 years ago and at the berkeley cafe maybe 8-10 years ago. Absolute legend. RIP my good man and thank you for the music
