R.I.P. - Guy Clark
I just read that Texas songwriting legend Guy Clark just passed away at 74 years of age after a couple of years of illness.
If you are into Texas music, especially TEXAS country western music (not the current regurgitated rock-n-roll country music) then you have heard of Guy Clark, or you have heard songs he has written.
My two favorite Guy Clark songs are "Desparado Waiting for a Train," and "The Guitar." I'm not really sure what kind of a man he was, but his bio is impressive. A renaisance man to say the least. I am told he lived his life with a very dry, but kind, sense of humor. I'm told that a lot of songwriters and storytellers are like that.
Click on the video and enjoy.
God's grace still amazes me . . . as well as a good Guy Clark song . . . ><>
