merle-haggard

I turned 56 yesterday….and today Merle Haggard turned 79….and passed away from complications from pneumonia.

I heard somebody say that they asked one of their┬áprofessors whether or not Dylan was a poet….and the response was that “he wasn’t a poet…. he was a songwriter. There’s a difference between a poet and a songwriter.”

I don’t know that what the educated man said was completely correct.

I think that Merle was kind of a poet….in his plainspoken way.

Thanks for some great music, Merle.

Thanks for being around.

This is one of my favorite Merle songs…..
