I got to see him in concert a few years ago. I'm not the biggest fan but his voice sounded pretty much just like it always has - unlike a lot of other singers. I was a little disappointed that he had some other band fill much of his set before he came on but, on the other hand, it was good to see a legend giving some new guys a step up.

A canvas covered cabin in a crowded labour camp
Stand out in this memory I revived;
Cause my daddy raised a family there, with two hard working hands
And tried to feed my mama's hungry eyes.
He dreamed of something better, and my mama's faith was strong
And us kids were just too young to realize
That another class of people put us somewhere just below;
One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes.
Mama never had the luxuries she wanted
But it wasn't cause my daddy didn't try.
She only wanted things she really needed;
One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes.
I remember daddy praying for a better way of life
But I don't recall a change of any size;
Just a little loss of courage, as their age began to show
And more sadness in my mama's hungry eyes.

I am hoping for a much better 79th birthday present than that! He was/is a legend

He's drinking that free bubble up and eating that rainbow stew now. RIP.

Hey, I know that I have. mentioned it before, but for those of you who love country roots and Americana, Otis Gibbs has both podcasts and now, a show on Pandora, "Country Built", all excellent stuff.
