    Just heard.
    Grew up on songs by "The Storyteller."

    Many favorites. This is one.

    When I was in my teens my dad carted me around to some local bars to sing this song (among a few others). Always thought this was a great song and still do.

    I remember that was a HUGE hit. I had no idea (at the time) that Tom T wrote it. (I tended to think back then that whoever sang a song also wrote it---hey, I was a kid!)

    Tom T. Hall was a songwriter my mom and dad (and uncle Richard) thought was great and I did too. Looking bad, there weren't a lot of songwriters that they loved and I loved too.

    Joe Ely posted this pic of himself, Tom T, and Stubb (C.B. Stubbelfield) on his FB page.
    Stubb had a BBQ place in Lubbock. Joe said he nailed down the curtains to stop people from wiping their greasy fingers on 'em.

    I don't believe in death period.
    I believe Stubb & Tom T & Clayton Delaney are all still with us.

    Our bodies are what have an Expiration
    Date is all.

    My best friend's Dad was a Tom T Hall fan to the Hilt!
    He had several of his Eight Track Tapes in his cars.

    Rest well Mr Hall.

    To this day, I use Stubb's Barbeque sauces more than any other.
    Stubb's Original and Stubb's Spicy are my favorite.

    I just made some barbeque chicken using the original, this very evening.
    ;)

    I've never had Stubb's BBQ sauce. I'll have to try some.
