 I remember THE YEAR

 THAT CLAYTON DELANEY DIED
 
      F
 They said for the last two weeks
 
                      C
 That he suffered and cried
 
    F 
 It made a big impression on me
 
                            C
 Although I was a barefoot kid
 
                                  G
 They said he got religion at the end
 
                      C
 And I'm glad that he did
 
 
 Clayton was the best guitar picker
 In our town
 I thought he was a hero
 And I used to follow Clayton around
 I often wondered why Clayton
 Who seemed so good to me
 Never took his guitar
 And made it down in Tenn-o-see
 
 Well daddy said he drank a lot
 But I could never understand
 I knew he used to pick up in Ohio
 With a five piece band
 Clayton used to tell me son
 You'd better put that ol' guitar away
 There ain't no money in it
 It will lead you to an early grave
 
 I guess if I'd admit it
 Clayton taught me how to drink booze
 I can see him half stoned
 A-pickin' out the Lovesick Blues
 When Clayton died I made him a promise
 I was going to carry on some how
 I'd give a hundred dollars
 If he could only see me now
 
 I remember THE YEAR
 THAT CLAYTON DELANEY DIED
 Nobody ever knew it
 But I went out in the woods and I cried
 While I know there's a lot of big preachers
 That know a lot more than I do
 It could be that the good Lord
 Likes a little pickin' too
 
 Coda:
 C
 Yeah I remember THE YEAR
 
 G7                  C
 THAT CLAYTON DELANEY DIED
