Default RIP Billie Joe Shaver

If you didn't know who Jerry Jeff was, you will not know who Billie Joe Shaver was.

A Texas legend. Died at are 81. A long colorful history of song writing and living.

The original outlaw country man.

Good story about him from 10 years ago. "Where do you want it?" LOL

2020 has been an absolute travesty for all of mankind but DAMN has it taken it's toll on our musician's and artists. John Prine, Charlie Daniels, Jerry Jeff Walker and now Billy Joe Shaver...

I think we need to quarantine Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson for their own good. We can't let 2020 claim them, they're about all we have left!

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now
You're gonna wanna hold me
Just like I've always told you
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

Nobody here will ever find me
But I will always be around
Just like the songs I leave behind me
I'm gonna live forever now
You fathers and you mothers
Be good to one another
Please try to raise your children right
Don't let the darkness take 'em
Don't make 'em feel forsaken
Just lead them safely to the light
When this old world has blown us under
And all the stars from fall this sky
Remember someone really loves you
We'll live forever you and I

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now

Dream of angels and sunshine
Rivers of red wine, and orange peel blues

My Honky Tonk Hero, He wrote most of the album that really put Waylon on the map as an outlaw.

Rest Easy Billy Joe

CORRECT!!! Waylon has always been my favorite and he "became Waylon" and the outlaw movement went into orbit with this album...

“Hopefully things will work out where we become friends enough so that he gives me back my bullet.”

State prosecutors argued Shaver could have left in his truck before shooting Coker.
“I’m from Texas,Shaver responded in his honky-tonk Texas drawl. “If I was a chicken shit I would have left.”


I'm just going to put these here in case anyone didn't open the OP's link above. Solid Gold!

I had forgotten about that trial. BJS had that "tude". Reminds me of the legendary ol MS bluesman R.L. Burnside. He once did time in the MS state pen. He shot a guy in the head during a craps game and on the stand when asked if he killed the man, RL replied "I didn't intend to kill him, I just shot him in the head! Him dying was between him and the Lord!"

Dammit man. Would love to have seen him live. He was an entertainer. We are running out of originals like him sucks. RIP Billy Joe

It's terrible how many great musicians we have lost this year. I have always loved BJS's music.

Can you imagine playing a gig where all you played is the music of people who died in 2020?!?!?!? Crazy.
