Jaw saw. RIP. When he was in prison saw Johnny Cash play. He wanted to be singer at that point.

other than "Okie From Muskogee" (and that scene in Platoon where they listen to it) I really wasn't familiar with his ouevre, and kinda lumped him in with country music hicks in general. I had read that he intended it as more of a satirical song, but listening to it, found that hard to believe. People (including liberal people) have told me I am wrong about this and Merle Haggard in general. I can admit when I am wrong & keep an open mind... so I added Merle to my list of musicians to eventually check out
