Old-school country music fan here, and I always loved Kenny Roger's songs because they were generally pretty easy to sing solo on my guitar, and generally lie within my vocal range.
Kenny Rogers was the quintessential story-telling song writer, so now I'll wander down memory lane via Youtube, in search of songs like "Coward of the County", "The Gambler", "Ruben James", "Evening Star" and a host of others too many to mention.
Sad to see ya saddle up this last time, Gambler. We'll see ya where the sky meets the desert, and the music goes on forever.
I feel more like I do now, than I did before I made this observation.
