Merle Haggard is now playing with Johnny Cash again. RIP We are losing so many of the great ones lately!
My builds are dead without the pics photobucket was holding hostage. The pics have been deleted and so have the links from my sig.

This time it's a couple of Texas country song writer/singers. Funny, even there names are Texan, Jerry Jeff and Billy Joe. That's Jerry Jeff Walker and Billy Joe Shaver probably not known outside of Texas, but great song writers. Here's a couple of there songs.
