Guess I will uneasily ride through Wooley Swamp in Georgia tonight reflecting on how a long haired country boy who was but a simple man had such wisdom and a wonderful way of getting his thoughts across.
I'm not even a country music fan but got to see Charlie Daniels play at Gilley's in Dallas for a private industry event back in 1995. He put on a great show and his band members were in top form. It was during the whole line dancing craze and there were a lot of pretty Texas gals kicking up their heels to his music. RIP Mr. Daniels.
CD"s early life was not always the best, but before he left us he definitely found the right way home. He was happy to tell the story that when he encouraged others to turn from their ways, they quickly pointed out his former rough and rowdy lifestyle, so he replied "Yeah, and I used to wear diapers too, but now I know better!".
CD, you will be missed. Thanks for music that will last forever.
