The Year Clayton Delaney Died written and recorded by Tom T. Hall G
G G7 I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
G G7 They said for the last two weeks that he suffered and cried
G It made a big impression on me although I was a barefoot kid
G They said he got religion at the end 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 Tennessee Well daddy said he drank a lot but I could never understand I knew he used to picked up in Ohio with a five piece band Clayton used to tell me son you better put that old guitar away Ain't no money in it it'll 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 picking out the Lovesick Blues When Clayton died I made him a promise I was gonna carry on somehow 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 Well I know there's a lotta big preachers that know a lot more than I do But it could be that the good Lord likes a little picking too
G Yeah I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
