Been on my radar my entire life, 50 years. One of the few artists both my mom AND my dad loved. Just unparalleled.

It's pretty much just down to Willie now.

Note from Jay on Facebook:

The songwriting world will never know another as great as Merle Haggard. Merle was a songwriter for the ages. - Jay

There's a big, brown cloud in the city
And the countryside's a sin
The price of life is too high to give up
It's gotta come down again

The world wide war is over and done
And the dream of peace comes true
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew

When they find out how to burn water
And the gasoline car is gone
When an airplane flies without any fuel
And the satellite heats our home

But one of these days when the air clears up
And the sun comes shinin' through
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew

Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon
Underneath that sky of blue
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew

You don't have to get high to get happy
Just think about what's in store
When people start doin' what they oughta be doin'
Then they won't be booin' no more

When a President goes through the White House door
Does what he says he'll do
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew

Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon
Underneath that sky of blue
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew

Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon
Underneath that sky of blue
We'll all be drinkin' free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew
