    The positive lasting effect he will have on many... he will be missed.

    Angel from Montgomery, one of my favorite songs anybody ever wrote. Bonnie Raitt's version especially.

    That's sad. I hope he went out with an illegal smile.

    Seems like people either know Prine and love him or they don't know him at all.

    Amazing how he seemed to just keep getting more popular as he got older.



    Thanks for the tip that he's featured on Austin City Limits. Always a good watch.

    I can't remember what song it was, but way back when, a country band I was in covered one of his songs. Thankfully, the guitar player would introduce it as a Prine song, but now I can't find which one it was. Hope I can find the PBS special.

    Edit: You Never Even Called Me By My Name.

    Well, it was all
    That I could do to keep from crying'
    Sometimes it seemed so useless to remain
    But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
    You never even called me by my name
    You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
    And you don't have to call me Charlie Pride
    And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard anymore
    Even though you're on my fighting' side
    And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
    And I never minded standing' in the rain
    But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
    You never even called me by my name
    Well, I've heard my name
    A few times in your phone book (hello, hello)
    And I've seen it on signs where I've played
    But the only time I know
    I'll hear "David Allan Coe"
    Is when Jesus has his final judgment day
    So I'll hang around as long as you will let me
    And I never minded standing' in the rain
    But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
    You never even called me by my name
    Well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
    And he told me it was the perfect country & western song
    I wrote him back a letter and I told him it was not the perfect country & western song
    Because he hadn't said anything at all about mama
    Or trains, or trucks, or prison, or getting' drunk
    Well, he sat down and wrote another verse to the song and he sent it to me
    And after reading it I realized that my friend had written the perfect country & western song
    And I felt obliged to include it on this album
    The last verse goes like this here
    Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
    And I went to pick her up in the rain
    But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
    She got run over by a damned old train
    And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
    And I never minded standing' in the rain, no
    But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
    You never even called me
    Well, I wonder why you don't call me
    Why don't you ever call me by my name
