He never really got over "Miss Dixie's" death. A songwriter, author, and devoted husband, he will be missed by most. I had the singular honor of having more than a few drinks with him, a gentle soul. He hated touring, missed his wife when away from home.

Rest in Peace Mr. Hall and say hello to Miss Dixie.

Another favorite gone. Sitting around the campfire with sundowners, Tom gets sung quite a bit, usually "Me and Jesus" followed by "I like Beer"......usually several times:) Rest In Peace.

I live in Kentucky, near where Tom T. Hall grew up. My neighbor who is about 90 tells me she grew up in the same holler with Tom and that she knew the young man who inspired “The Year That Clayton Delaney Died”. May he Rest In Peace.

RIP
some of his songs that come to mind that I enjoy hearing - I'll only mention the ones that have not already been listed in this thread


A Week In A Country Jail - "hot bologna, eggs, and gravy" "where's the guy that thinks that this is Indianapolis" "that part about who I was, did not impress him"


The Cowboy And The Poet - "he had to drink a beer to keep his britches on his hips" "Son, it's faster horses, younger women, older whiskey, more money" "There was somethin' cold and shiny laying by my head, So I started to believe the things he said"

One of the greatest songwriters of our generation dies and very few of us care. Let some doped rock drummer die and people are throwing themselves on his funeral pyre.

Not everyone enjoys a storyteller or desires to understand his sophisticated tales of life. The music might have been simple accompaniments but, the stories were often complicated observations of life, Tom T. was nothing if not a serious observer of humans and their frailties and strengths.
