Jerry Jeff Walker Songwriter died at 78, throat cancer

Jerry Jeff Walker, Outlaw Country Architect and ‘Mr. Bojangles’ Songwriter, Dead at 78

“Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother,” about a ne’er-do-well “kickin hippies’ asses and raising hell,” stands as the album’s cult-favorite number. More of a sketch by Ray Wylie Hubbard than a proper song when Walker and his band decided to record it for ¡Viva Terlingua!, it was finished at the 11th hour after a phone call to Hubbard from Walker’s bass player Bob Livingston.

Mr. Bojangles will long live road trips.

I saw him live a couple of times at Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin back in the 1970's. Back when Jerry Jeff, Willie Nelson, Asleep at the Wheel, BW Stephenson and Willis Allen Ramsey were all Texas-only acts.

Sad passing. He was one colorful motherfucker. Kinda like a musical Hunter Thompson.

Another niche legend in the rear-view.

He lived hard, played hard, sometimes disappointed fans at live concerts due to some of his past excesses.

But many a goat was milked to his lyrics and tunes, and pigs were slopped, chickens fed, eggs gathered, & gardens planted, as the barn's Pioneer Super Tuner cranked out some Jerry Jeff... and in particular, this gem...

His testament to country living and back to the land movement way back when.

Bless Jerry Jeff.

Happy trails, Jerry Jeff.... Later on...

Thanks ab. Stroking 'til I can't, laughter to tears, and back again, with lots of time in between..

Take care.

It's now a Jerry Jeff afternoon.... Likely calls for some oji OG; not too sedate, and not too uppity, and will allow me to get stuff done, jamming to Jerry Jeff now.

Sorry to read, but thanks for the news.

Well, I've already commandeered your JJW thread with the number of posts herein, but after reminiscing and bathing in musical nostalgia, it occurred to me that in my experience, there's a handful of tunes that are truly Jerry Jeff signature songs that defined his spirit.

One of them was LA Freeway; can't recall how many times I raised my thumb on the side of the road in the 1970s and early 1980s while singing that tune and similar.

But one that truly reminds me of good times at an off-grid 100-year old cabin in Norther Michigan on that farm I mentioned is this one;

'Hill Country Rain' Maybe you had to be there. LSD, reefer in the garden, folks making their own path in the woods, kerosene lighting, and this...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlqpT_QJ0A4

I'll leave your thread alone for a while now...

Thanks for letting me/us know about his end.

Too bad. RIP Jerry Jeff.

I bought ¡Viva Terlingua! in the mid 70’s and one day in college I played it and my roomie tells a story about one time he was playing it at home and walked into the kitchen to find his mom dancing with a broom to “Gettin’ By”.
