The Year Clayton Delaney Died
written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
G                        D7              G   G7
I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
     C                                                G    G7
They said for the last two weeks that he suffered and cried
   C                                                     G
It made a big impression on me although I was a barefoot kid
                                 D7                       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
                              D7              G
Yeah I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
