RIP Merle Haggard
« on: April 11, 2016, 11:18:33 am »

died last week
The personification of the overused legend tag. Some of his songs have more covers than House of the Rising Sun  :rolleyes:
Here's a yin and a yang:

maybe we could assume he didn't move to rural Montana to find work:

A hint for the fucking clueless uninformed; Okie From Muskogee was tongue in cheek, kept on the DL because of its commercial success.

I heard and will miss his voice on the radio.
He really lived a lot of his songs. Okie excepted.

When I heard I was driving and said out loud Rest well Merle ya done good.
So now I've said it twice.
Is there a link to any particular site about his passing? I can't do videos much as I might want to do them. Broadband issues. sigh
