One of these characters?
have had some drug seeking moments in their life, but probably didn't have to acquire them at gunpoint.
I had a guy come in not too long ago first thing in the morning who absolutely reeked of wacky weed. Without looking up from my work, I said, "I'm hungry, I don't know why". I thought one of my techs was going to wet herself. The little girl up front had no idea what I was talking about. She just thought he smelled bad.
and on the left is my old school buddy
RAY WYLIE HUBBARD
If you don't know Hubbard, he wrote Red Neck Mother
Jerry Jeff Walker made a hit on it
Figured the other might be his buddy. Never heard of Red Neck Mother, but I'll have to go look it up now.
Just watched the Jerry Jeff Walker video. That's pretty good.
who are these two hippies? lol
Back when I was playing music in and around Houston, if I could sense a sort of lull in the crowd, I'd start Red Neck Mother, and the crowd would come alive, and many if not most would sing along. Ray and Jerry Jeff (or Jakey Jake) were Texas institutions - as was Kinky Friedman (and the Texas Jewboys).
In Utah ? Educate them folks
The country music fans here mostly like whatever's played on the Top 40 C&W stations, which is the same you can hear all over the country. If there's a western swing band in the state, I've never heard it. Maybe Hampster knows of one (he's younger than me, by a lot), but I don't. There are some people here who play a regional style, but it's nothing at all like western swing. There's no place here like Mickey Gilley's, or any of the other big Texas dance halls. For one thing, by far the predominant religion here is Mormon, and they don't drink or smoke (most of them, anyway). There are church dances for the young people, but they're chaperoned. It's not the way I grew up!
Mother said your going with us.
We never got to have a dance
High School. Michael Martin Murphy was a year ahead
of us and he rocked on also. (Wild Fire)
We had a pretty neat school
In my little town (Petrolia, in Clay County, TX), there were Baptist, Church of Christ & Methodists. The next town over (Byers), had Baptist, Methodist & Assembly of God. The Methodists were the only ones that OK'd dancing. All of us did it, but the Baptists, Church of Christ & Assembly of God didn't tell their preachers!
What school was that?
I'm an Oak Cliff Rat
Got out as quick as I could
