The first thing I remember knowing,
Was a lonesome whistle blowing,
And a young un's dream of growing up to ride,
On a freight train leaving town,

The best there was. I missed him before he left this world, knowing that we were going to have to say bye to the most influential country singer I think this world has had. Over 50 years his musical career transcended generations and survived every genre of music popular at that time. I think he was God sent for many of people past and present to know there not alone. Merle got it and did it with class, tight on his Tele, he was solid on stage until he left this earth. Long live the Hagg.
