Willie's done a lot better than that one. (Of course, he wrote "Hello Walls.") I see your favorite George Jones song is there.

They should have credited the writers, not the singers. I do like that George Jones song, though.

One of my favorites is the first line from Merle Haggard's Mama Tried -- "I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole"

Bill Crider said...

That's one of my favorites, too, Mack.

Funny you should mention that, Mack, because for some unknown reason I've been singing that song to myself lately. A classic for sure.

It says it all, doesn't it?
