As most of you probably know Jerry Jeff Walker left this sphere on Oct. 23.
It hasn’t been a good year for music icons, and this is another one that hurt. But the good news is all the music he’s left behind over the years.
Here’s a Spotify playlist of great Jerry Jeff Walker songs (and no, he didn’t write all of these, but he did record them). What else should we add?
- Mr. Bojangles
- London Homesick Blues
- Gettin’ By
- Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother
- Pissin’ in the Wind
- Sangria Wine
- L.A. Freeway
- Charlie Dunn
- Hill Country Rain
- Desperados Waiting for a Train
- Navaho Rug
(BTW, did you know that Jerry Jeff did the first recording of “Trashy Women,” the song Confederate Railroad had the hit with?)
